It seems like to me...
You want someone to fit your pedigree
And just 'cause I don't...
You wanna say I'm wrong.
The year changed. New time on the clock.
I'm aware at 11:59 it don't stop
The problems that you got, but it sho' look bright
The sight of a slate clean. Say it ain't nice!
Give me 5 just to make this precise.
I'm reflecting on the past year of my life.
Running in the rat race and the competition's tight
But I stretched for 5 years and got my stride right.
I'm fresh with a polo and my jeans all pressed.
Getting all kinds of calls and I handled them the best
Just check the numbers I'm running 'cause they're nothing like the average
Described as an animal. Quite savage.
But dealing with people with attitudes so brash it's
Pretty much a chore to even interact with
Them. But I stayed with much poise and class
Like it's back in '06; one of them boys in class!
Got reviews that said they're so glad
That I'm on the team. Promotion's coming fast!
More responsibility. Late nights were killing me.
They said, "You're great, but we're reorganizing litterally.
Get your things together. This is your last day with us.
You're one of the best, but, I guess, sometimes it's just
Funny how things can change..."
