Intro - The Sermon

R. Kelly

Well, are you ready for me? Yeah
Before I start, I just wanna get a few things off my chest
Well, yes, take ya' time brotha

Now being in the business that I am in looks like everything I do
Everywhere I go, well, and everything I see
Seems to be through some kind of magnifying glass
Yeah, can I talk about it? Talk on

While you're looking out I suggest you take a good look, yeah
And I hope you find just what it is you're looking for, looking for, amen
Just like that song says, well, ain't nobody's business what I do?
Now can I move on? Move on, move on, move on brotha Kelly

I remember when I was trying to be somebody, take your time
But I just didn't know nobody, I didn't know nobody, well
But now, yeah, I said, "Now, now, can I say it again?"
Go on and say it again

Now, now every since God has blessed me, yeah
It seems that everything's is going a little bit different, yes, it is
Folks ain't it funny how things can change sometimes
Why even the Statue of Liberty want some bump and grind, yeah

Can I get a witness off up in them jeeps, amen
I don't see nothing wrong with a little truth, oh

Now, now wait a minute go that way
Ya, see the good book says that the truth is, where?
In the light, yeah, please, I think it's time
To turn on your lights and see the truth, yeah

Can, I talk on? Talk on, yeah
Yes, you don't know, well, where I've been
Where? You don't know who I'm, where I'm going, no
You don't know, well, what I do, well

Can I get a witness?
So before you go tyring to pass judgement on me
Well, pass judgement on yourself, yeah
Worry 'bout yourself, well, and what yourself is doing, yeah
And where yourself is going, yeah, and who yourself has been with

That way you, you, you, you
You don't have to ever worry about nobody but Jesus
