Children grow and women producing
Men go working
Some go stealing
Everyone's got to make a living

L O X
J. Lo
We off the block this year
Went from a little to a lot this year
Everybody mad at the rocks that I wear
I know where I'm goin' and I know where I'm from
You hear LOX in your ear
Yea, we're at the airport out decline from the block
Where everybody air-forced-out
With a new white Tee, you fresh
Nothin' phony with us, make the money, get the mansion, bring the homies with us

Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (from the Bronx!)
Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (from the Bronx!)

From In Living Color and movie scripts
To On the 6 to J. Lo to this headline clips
I stayed grounded as the amounts roll in
I'm real, I thought I told you
I really been on Oprah
That's just me
Nothin phony, don't hate on me
What you get is what you see

Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (from the Bronx!)
Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (from the Bronx!)

I'm down to earth like this
Rockin this business
I've grown up so much
I'm in control and loving it
Rumors got me laughing, kid
Love my life and my public
Put God first
Then can't forget to stay real
To me it's like breathing

Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (from the Bronx!)
Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (from the Bronx!)

It take hard work to cash checks
So don't be fooled by the rocks that I got, now assets
You get back what you put out
Even if you take the good route
Can't count the hood out
After a while, you know who to blink with
Just keep it real with the ones came in with
Best thing to do is stay low, LOX and J.Lo
Act like they don't, but they know

Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (from the Bronx!)
Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (from the Bronx!)
Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (from the Bronx!)
Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (from the Bronx!)

    Song MeaningDon't be fooled by the rocks that I got
    I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block


    In other words, although I had a sex change operation and now have huge, artificial testicles, I'm still the person I always was.

    General CommentWell well a radio station where i live made thier own version of this song. Its hilarious:
    Chorus-
    ' Don't u want this booty that i got
    my name's Jenny and i been around the block
    used to fuck a little, now i fuck alot
    no matter where i go u know i gotta get some '
    I'm down to earth like this
    slut of this business, i switch up so much
    i'm a whore and lovin it
    Ben wants me to have his kids
    Lve my life, dont want no kids
    I wanna hump, come hit this
    FOR RRREEEAAALLLL
    Want me? I'm easy!!
    But the most hilarious part is at the end they had a gut making fun of P. Diddy and every other word was Bad Boy. Lol He do always say that! Anyway my opinion- she a ho and she can't sing but i love every movie she's been in- not a bad actress. Plus all her songs got good beats and they are catchy as hell but i dont like her.

    General CommentWhat a lie. I am sorry to say, but I just ain't got no respect for her at all. I know you fans will bitch, why you posting here if you don't like her,blah blah blah. But she is quickly becoming the next Liz Taylor, and she is so damn transparent. She long gone forgot who she is

    General CommentHas she ever given back to her community? With all the money she has, she could rennovate her old neighborhood and ensure the college tuition of all the kids there.
    And "put God first"? When has she done that?
