A'int rattling no coins,

A'int rattling no coins,

I'm workin', I'm on my way.

Not on display like some toddler, 

Gon' make someone proud today.


Dancin' in the fire like a greedy moth,

I'll take the heat, I'll eat the flame, 

Not skippin' a single step,

I will be my own angel, in my own way.


Reject me as I am,

I will grow to be better.

Don't matter how many interviews,

I'll get that damn acception letter.


I'll get off these here streets,

You'll be wishing I knew your name.

I'll work skin to bone,

And when I walk out that door, it will be to your dismay.
