It's a Gamble not to try By James Cook
(Viet nam)

It's a struggle when i can't even hold a 9to5 it's a gamble not to try it's so hard to see man cry But I refuse to die All I wanted was a better life gotta stay alive I know God will Provide during these hard times

It's a struggle to survive when i can't even hold a 9to5 it's a gamble not to try it's so hard to see man cry But I refuse to die All I wanted was a better life gotta stay alive I know God will Provide during these hard times

Obama Talkin' about hope But I see my people strung out on dope
when we can't even buy a bar of soap no wonder we ain't hanging from a rope

It's a struggle to survive when i can't even hold a 9to5 it's a gamble not to try it's so hard to see man cry But I refuse to die All I wanted was a better life gotta stay alive I know God will Provide during these hard times

Tryin' to pull myself out, But the Man Put me right back down and My Brotha won't pick me up off the ground I guess i see ya around town.

I SEEN NEW
by: james cook

I seen
Fire
Going up the wire
I seen buyers become King Pins
Suppliers trying to retire before they time expire
Looking for new ways to get higher
I seen snitches singing like Mariah in
Gospel choir with passion an desire
I seen smoke so strong
It could make man choke
I seen rich man go broke
Off of kilo a Coke

I seen lifers
Hanging from
A rope I seen
Young bucks
Dropping the
Soap with no
More hope

I seen loco's
Killing there own
Fokes over dope

I seen
Death
Through a
Baby's
Breath
I seen
Hell
Lock
Down in
A cell
Asking God for the bail
Walking on nails Days moving

Like a snails
Through egg shells
I seen
Life like
I seen the light
Through a
Smokers
Pipe
I seen
Satan rollin the
Dice with 25
To life
I seen
Wrong become
Right
I seen
Darkness
Overcome the
Light
Like it was
Written in
Black an white
I seen Blind have
Sight I seen the
Fein's running
Through the
Night
I seen broken
Dreams hopes
An schemes tears
Of running streams
Hustlers cream
By any means
I seen OG's
Become Crack
Fein's
When
They walk they
Stumble
An when
They talk they mumble an when
They lean they fumble they
On street looking for rumble they
Had pride but now they are humble
I seen
Five precenters
On there dean
Saleing Bean
Pies an
Whip Cream
I seen
D-Boys rollin'
Clean supplying
Colombian coffee
Beans I seen the
American Dream
On a 100 inch flat
Screen I seen
The poor sleeping
Outside of a church
Door I seen the rich
Wanting more I seen
A thug robbing liquor stores
I seen a Mexican whore
On all fours trying to make it
Across shore
I seen Good become
Bad an Bad Become Ugly
I seen friends become enemies
My niggas wanna get rid of me like
Heaven was meant for me
From ghottoes of low
Class soceity with no opportunity
For minority you have n't Seen
The best of me an you haven't seen
The rest of me like you playing chess with
Me I light your ass up like christmas tree
You don't wanna mess with me I
Seen
The wise men become keen an Spoken words
Become foreseen into once dream

I seen

I've had a chance to review "It's a Gamble not to Try". Please see review below.

"It's a Gamble not to Try": You have excellent rhyme through out the lyric which creates good rhythm which makes the song flow well. I also think you've captured what many people are going through especially in today's world. You've done a good job of capturing and expressing the emotions in the song as you can feel the loss, pain, longing, struggle etc... Getting emotion across is important b/c this is how people connect with music. I also think you have good imagery and description as you use your words to paint the scenes and bring the song to life. The length is good as well as your song structure and verse/chorus format.

This is a lyric we'd be interested in working with you on. If you were interested the first step would be to have the song professionally recorded or demoed. We work with some of the best musicians and singers in the world so this lyric would become a great song. Our hopes would be to produce a demo and promote it to the music industry. I will tell you upfront that there would be a demo fee which is very reasonable. However, we know in these economic times things are tough so we do offer payment plans. The demo fee goes toward paying the singers and musicians. We take care of everything else and we don't charge to pitch the song We would also need to sign a songwriting contract. I have pasted links below to both the contract and the recording packages and pricing. If you can't click on them please copy and pate into your browser. Let me know if you have any questions. We hope to work with you soon. -Rachel
