If we could all listen to this wonderful word
People who want to be something just wanna be heard
to the legitimate people who stay true to their name
be unique and you’ll rise to fame
from here to there and across the world
whether your rich or broke or a boy or a girl
times are tough and life is hard but you’ll never make it anywhere without no job
I’m the dog without a leash and no collar.
Under class and under paid
Why live life for just minimum wage?
Constuction hats and business suits, baseball bats and work boots
higher education & college degrees
that means nothing when your broke, jobless and on the streets.
I’ve got a job
I’m a professional at being bored
So I write these rhymes to sketch out the blueprint of the future.
