How good would it feel if,
you were working all day,
fixing something or cleaning something
so that everyone else could enjoy it,
there’s so many people around,
but no one says anything to you,
everyone just walks by,
and someone finally approaches you and says,
"You’re doing great!
Thank you so much!
Have a good night!”?
I don’t think it’s meant to be, B
For she loves her work more than she does me
And honestly, at twenty-three,
I would probably love my work more than I did she
So we, ain’t we
It’s me, and her
‘Cause what she prefers over me, is work
And that’s, where we, differ
So I have to give her
Free, time, even if it hurts
So breathe, mami, it’s deserved
You’ve been put on this earth to be
All you can be, like the reserves
And me? My time in the army, it’s served
So I have to allow she, her, time to serve
The time’s now for her
In time she’ll mature
And maybe we, can be, we, again like we were
Finally, my time’s too short to share
And to ask her now, it ain’t fair
So yeah, she lost one!
