Song Lyrics



[Intro: Kanye West]

How`s your son? (all, all, all the things, things)

He make the team this year? (all, all, all the things things)

Aw th-, they said he wasn`t tall enough?

(all, all, all the glitter is not gold)

Yeah me we gon` cook this up (now gold is not a reality)

(real is what you live to be)

[Verse 1: Kanye West]

This is family business

And this is for the family that can`t be with us

And this is for my cousin locked down, know the answer`s in us

That`s why I spit it in my songs so sweet

Like a photo of your granny`s picture

Now that you`re gone it hit us

Super hard on Thankgiving and Christmas, this can`t be right

Yeah you heard the track I did man, this can`t be life

Somebody please say grace so I can save face

And have a reason to cover my face

I even made you a plate, soul food, know how Granny do it

Monkey bread on the side, know how the family do it

When I brought it why had guard have to look all to it?

As kids we used to laugh

Who knew that life would move this fast?

Who knew I`d have to look at you through a glass?

And look, tell me you ain`t did it, you ain`t did it

And if you did, then that`s family business

[Hook: Choir]

And I don`t care `bout (all the, all the diamond rings, diamond rings)

They don`t mean a thing (all, all, all the things)

All these fancy things

I tell you that all (all the glitter) my weight in gold

Now all I know I know all these things

[Verse 2: Kanye West]

This is family business

And this is for everybody standin` with us

Come on, let`s take a family Grammy picture

Abby, remember when they ain`t believe in me?

Now she like "See, that`s my cousin on TV"

Now, we gettin` it and we gon` make it

And y`all gon` hate it and I`m his favorite

I can`t deny it, I`m a straight rider

But when we get together be electric slidin`

Grandma, get `em shook up

Aw naw, don`t open the photo book up

I got an Aunt Ruth that can`t remember your name

But I bet them Polaroids`ll send her down memory lane

You know that one auntie, you don`t wanna be rude

But every holiday nobody eatin` her food

And you don`t wanna stay there cuz them your worst cousins

Got roaches at their crib like them your first cousins

Act like you ain`t took a bath with your cousins

Fit three in the bed while six of y`all

I`m talkin` `bout three by the head and three by the leg

But you ain`t have to tell my girl I used to pee in the bed

[Interlude: Choir]

Rain, rain, rain go away

Let the sun come out and all the children say

Rain, rain, rain go away

Let the sun come out and all the children say

[Verse 3: Kanye West]

I woke up early this mornin` with a new state of mind

A creative way to rhyme without usin` knives and guns

Keep your nose out the sky, keep your heart to God

And keep your face to the risin` sun

All my n*ggas from the Chi, that`s my family dog

And my n*ggas ain`t my guys, they my family dog

I feel like one day you`ll understand me dog

You can still love your man and be manly dog

You ain`t got to get heated at every house warmin`

Sittin` here, grillin` people like George Foreman

Why Uncle Ray and Aunt Shiela always performin`?

The second she storms out then he storms in

Y`all gon` sit down, have a good time this reunion

And drink some wine like Communion

And act like everything fine and if it isn`t

We ain`t lettin` everybody in our family business

[Interlude: Choir]

(all the, all the diamond rings, diamond rings)

They don`t mean a thing (all, all, all the things)

They don`t mean a thing

(all the, all the diamond rings, diamond rings)

They don`t mean a thing, a thing

[Hook: Choir]

And I don`t care `bout (all the, all the diamond rings, diamond rings)

They don`t mean a thing (all, all, all the things)

All these fancy things

I tell you that all (all the glitter) my weight in gold

Now all I know I know all these things

[Females:] (oooh) All these things (these things)

[Males:] All these things (oooh) all these things (these things)

[F:] All these things (oooh) all these things (these things)

[M:] All these things (oooh) all these things (these things)

[F:] All these things (oooh) all these things (these things)

[M:] All these things (oooh) all these things (these things)

[F:] All these things (oooh) all these things (these things)

[M:] All these things (oooh) all these things (these things)
