I Know What You Think


He's a failure 

In my class he won't survive 

17 and black?

I'm surprised he's alive

He's just a stupid football player

Is that all you think I am?

Just another statistic? 

Disgracing Uncle Sam?

He's one of them 

One of who? I am my own person

At least I try to be 

But if this is who you see is it really workin'

But I am more than what you think I am

I'm pretty sound academically 

When you talk about bad students

Very seldom will you mention me 

You're just a teacher 

I'm just a student 

And the way you prejudge me 

just makes you look so stupid 


Need to talk?
