Lowkey - Too Much Lyrics




[Intro: Lauryn Hill]
If you down with the rich man, and that can be rich in anything,
Don't you take too much,
If you laugh at a poor man, and that can be poor in anything,
Don't you laugh too much,
If you tryin' to be rich man, and that can be rich in anything
Don't you take too much,
And if you need to be needed, and you're lookin' for purpose,
Just remember, don't you need too much...

[Hook: Shadia Mansour]
If you take something you, don't need, and keep it
Then you've stolen from somebody else who's hungry
Everything that you do, is everything you are
Everything that I am, is everything you'll ever need.

[Verse 1: Lowkey]
Money can buy power, but it can't buy respect
Money can't buy sleep, but it can buy a bed
Money can't buy you love, but it can buy sex
Do you posses money or by money are you possessed?
Money can buy a house, but it can't buy a home
So even with money you still feel all alone
Money can buy you friends, but it can't buy family
Money can't make you happy, that's just a fallacy
It can buy a bath, but it can't buy purity
It can buy bodyguards, but it can't buy security
While people around the world starve, I eat
Cause money can buy war, but it can't buy peace
Some do everything and anything to get the p's
The society we livin' in, it's a necessity
It's got the power to turn your best friends to enemies
It's funny cause money doesn't follow us when we leave.

[Hook: Shadia Mansour]
If you take something you, don't need, and keep it
Then you've stolen from somebody else who's hungry
Everything that you do, is everything you are
Everything that I am, is everything you'll ever need.

[Verse 2: Lowkey]
Does happiness live in a mansion with a swimming pool?
I know people with plenty of money that are miserable
We all need to earn in this world we live
Most work for it, some steal, but many worship it
Some sell poison for it, some seek employment for it
We need it to survive, so some clean the toilets for it
I need papes to live but never will I live for papes
Abolish the Queen, I don't wanna see that witch's face
Many sell their soul for it, no not me
Some will try to tell you that it doesn't grow on trees
I heard the sayin' said, many a time, but they were wrong
Cause if it doesn't tell me where do you get the paper from?
Most think they will be happy if they only had more of it
Some wasted, some feel more important because they're born with it
Some have got the nerve to say you're fraudulent for forging it
The truth is you don't need a fortune to be fortunate.

[Hook: Shadia Mansour]
If you take something you, don't need, and keep it
Then you've stolen from somebody else who's hungry
Everything that you do, is everything you are
Everything that I am, is everything you'll ever need.

    I love you, Lowkey.

  2. EDUARDO G. MDZ

    CUBA, VENEZUELA Y COREA DEL NORTE SON EL EJE DEL MAL!!!

  3. Selenelion

    Welcome to the global corporatocracy, a free range tax farm. With state-run Prussian education and TV & media designed to keep us educationally, emotionally and spiritually stunted. Where the only development is focused on technology to the detriment of humanity and to the profit of the few.

  4. R A Y M A N T I S

    love this song... from N.Z

  5. EyeA HD

    Money provides opportunity

  6. Hisenbewg Ak

    so even with money you still feel all alone

  7. Siddhartha

    We as a people who inhabit this place of all colors, creeds, and beliefs need to respect our home( earth ) in ways that we have not. Money forces people to destroy the self replenishing just to make it profit and keep it in our pockets (banks) instead of taking it when needed and replacing immediately with new seed. The trees and all its inhabitants in forests are irreplaceable when burned and farmed for its organic wealth to produce. The waters that get polluted by such a being focused and only concerned by the bottom line in $ is a very destructive mind to themselves and others and corporations are the worst group of people looking to profit by horrendous and insidious ways of making them by neglecting the reciprocating nature of life. I really wish we all take responsibility for our own life and don’t mind helping their fellow man in this truth. If everyone would just use and take what they need, everyone and everything would keep up abundantly in this need and be freed of greed. Too many corporations pump out too much product with no regard to anything but their profit. Cheating , stealing and lying all go along with money.

  8. i Will

    I love Lowkey, but the idea that Cuba was put under embargo for "facing off against US imperialism" is silly. It's moreso that people like Fidel and Che were murdering people, average farmers and their wives/children, for not going along with their communist narrative, and just wanted to be left alone. THAT is the crime. Real Talk

  9. Shane Rollo

    Still listening, all his tracks are legendary. Much respect

  39. Isaac Mintman

    Made me cry when I first heard it

  40. Daniel Lopez

    SHADIA!

  41. Araf hayat

    GReat song, I think it should be devoted to the idea of how individuals can help the poor rather than government, the Cuban government is known to commit massive human rights violations, interfering in public economy, seizing property rights. It would have been great to overthrow Batista and have a moderate government rather than a authoritarian Marxist state.

  42. Farah Nuux

    Someone take me to Cuba!!

  43. yakikadafi

    Truth is you don't need a fortune to be fortunate

    xperl1

    You are the fortune, for the other person as such making the other a fortune worth for you. The need is of peace and the action is trough unity

  44. konogomang

    I love this song for its meaning but I can't get over the fact he glorifies Venezuela, a country run by a modern-day dictator, where the average person is suffering. Venezuela is not imperfectly its own, half the country is owned by the Chinese for god's sake.

    GlobalFaction

    konogomang have you been to Venezuela while Chavez was alive?

    konogomang

    Just seeing your response now.. I personally have not, but my girlfriend grew up there until she was 22. The situation was definitely better when Chavez was alive, but far from good. Now with Maduro the country has really become much worse, she actually visited her family few months ago and would on occasion wake up to gunshots in the morning, that's the state of the country's capital right now. And don't forget that Maduro was appointed by Chavez as his successor. Tell me, have you been to Venezuela? Have you lived there? Don't get me wrong I love Lowkey but when a country opposes USA that does not automatically make that country great or faultless, just look at North Korea.

  45. Norberto Luciano

    viva Cuba. long live Palestine. Power to the people. much love commmin from floroda
