    ntro: Nas (Lauryn Hill singing in the background)

    Life..... I wonder....
    Will it take me under.... I don't know

    Verse One: Nas

    Imagine smoking weed in the streets without cops harassin
    Imagine going to court with no trial
    Lifestyle cruising blue behind my waters
    No welfare supporters more conscious of the way we raise our daughters
    Days are shorter, nights are colder
    Feeling like life is over, these snakes strike like a cobra
    The world's hot my son got knocked evidently
    It's elementary, they want us all gone eventually
    Trooping out of state for a plate knowledge
    If coke was cooked without the garbage we'd all have the top dollars
    Imagine everybody flashin, fashion
    Designer clothes, lacing your click up with diamond rolls
    Your people holdin dough, no parole
    No rubbers, go in raw imagine law with no undercovers
    Just some thoughts for the mind
    I take a glimpse into time
    watch the blimp read "The World Is Mine"

    Chorus: Lauryn Hill, Nas

    If I ruled the world Imagine that
    I'd free all my sons, I love em love em baby
    Black diamonds and pearls Could it be, if you could
    be mine, we'd both shine
    If I ruled the world Still livin for today, in
    these last days and times

    Verse Two: Nas

    It'd be, paradise, life, relaxin black, latino and anglo-saxon
    Armani exchange the range
    Cash, Lost Tribe of Shabazz, free at last
    Brand new whips to crash then we laugh in the iller path
    The Villa house is for the crew, how we do
    Trees for breakfast, dime sexes and Benz stretches
    So many years in depression make me vision
    The better livin, type of place to raise kids in
    Open they eyes to the lies history's told foul
    But I'm as wise as the old owl, plus the Gold Child
    Seeing things like I was controlling, click rollin
    Trickin six digits on kicks and still holdin
    Trips to Paris, I civilized every savage
    Gimme one shot I turn trife life to lavish
    Political prisonners set free, stress free
    No work release purple M3's and jet skis
    Feel the wind breeze in West Indies
    I make Coretta Scott-King mayor the cities and reverse fiends to Willies
    It sounds foul but every girl I meet would go downtown
    I'd open every cell in Attica send em to Africa

    Chorus: Lauryn Hill, Nas

    If I ruled the world Imagine that
    I'd free all my sons, I love em love em baby
    Black diamonds and pearls Could it be, if you could
    be mine, we'd both shine
    If I ruled the world Still livin for today, in
    these last days and times

    And then we'll walk right up to the sun
    Hand in hand
    We'll walk right up to the sun
    We won't land
    We'll walk right up to the sun
    Hand in hand
    We'll walk right up to the sun
    We won't land

    Verse Three: Nas

    You'd love to hear the story how the thugs live in worry
    Duck down in car seats, heat's mandatory
    Runnin from Jake, gettin chased, hunger for papes
    These are the breaks many mistakes go down out of state
    Wait, I had to let it marinate we carry weight
    Tryin to get laced, flip the ace stack the safe
    Millionaire plan to keep the gat with the cocked hammer
    Makin moves in Atlanta, back and forth scrambler
    Cause you could have all the chips, be poor or rich
    Still nobody wants 2 see a nigga havin shit
    But if I ruled the world and everything in it, sky's the limit
    I push the Q-45 Infinit
    It wouldn't be no such thing as jealousies or Beef Felonies
    Strictly living longevity to the destiny
    I thought I'd never see but reality struck
    Better find out before your time's out, what the fuck???

    Chorus: Lauryn Hill, Nas

    If I ruled the world Imagine that
    I'd free all my sons, I love em em baby
    Black diamonds and pearls Could it be, if you could
    be mine, we'd both shine
    If I ruled the world Still livin for today, in
    these last days and times

    If I ruled the world, if I ruled, if I ruled Imagine that
    I'd free all my sons, if I ruled, if I ruled
    I love em love em baby
    Black diamonds and pearls, black dimaonds Could it be, if you could
    black diamonds be mine, we'd both shine
    If I ruled the world Still livin for today, in
    these last days and times

    If I ruled the world, if I ruled
    if I ruled, I'd free all my sons
    black diamonds, I love em love em baby
    Black diamonds and pearls, if I ruled
    If I ruled the world

    If I ruled the world
    I love em love em baby!!
