Lyrics:

(Chorus)
I wish I
was strong
enough to lift
not one
but both of us
someday I will
be strong enough
to lift not one
but both of us

(Verse 1)
aint it funny how a man with so much could feel like he got so little
and another man with not much could feel like he so much bigger
sounds like a riddle
but go figure
I couldn’t tell you the answer
my teacher didn’t teach that class
it aint that simple
you see life is a test
most of us hope we pass no number 2 pencil
with no paper and no lines
just a line for the folk need labor
with no food and no wages
no dinner table no waitress
just a hood with no neighbors
you see the cops rolling up with tasers
cause the law wont do you no favors
dont believe me you can ask Troy Davis
im just saying
whats the basis to this equation
you see most of us were born without a shot
we all aint NBA players
but if its all for one
and one for all
then maybe one day
we all can ball
do it one time for the underdogs
sincerely yours
from one to y’all

(Chorus)
I wish I
was strong
enough to lift
not one
but both of us
someday I will
be strong enough
to lift not one
but both of us

(Verse 2)
ever thought about losing it
when your moneys all gone and you lose your whip
might lose your grip
when the landlord tell you that you do for rent
have the grass so green on the other side
make a nigga wanna run straight through the fence
open up the fridge bout 20 times
but you still cant find no food in it
thats foolishness
and sometimes I wonder
why we care so much bout the way we look
and the way we talk
and the way we act
and the clothes we bought
how much that cost
does it even really matter
cause if life is an uphill battle
we all try to climb up the same ol ladder
and the same boat with the same ol paddle
why so shallow
im just asking
whats the pattern
to the madness
everybody in they number one draft pick
most of us ain’t hollywood actors
but if its all for one
and one for all
then maybe one day
we all could ball
do it one time for the underdogs
from Bobby Ray
to all of y’all

(Chorus)
I wish I
was strong
enough to lift
not one
but both of us
someday I will
be strong enough
to lift not one
but both of us

The first verse is one of the best verses I've ever heard.
