They told me I would never be the man
Instead, a role player with a single fan.
They told me I wouldn't be a starting player
Well I raised the bar to a whole new layer.
I worked so hard that offseason
My abilities increased to a point they thought I committed treason.
It felt so good to prove the doubters wrong
When I hit a home run, "Going..going..gone"'.
I played baseball so I had the chance to excel
My intentions came true, my game was rounding out well.
Imagine overcome adversity and defeating the odds
People acknowledge success, in school the cool kids gave me head nods.
It was all starting to fall in place
Like my fielding while I played first base.
It felt fantastic to have my own group of fans
It felt even better to be The Man.
