People come and go, it’s best to not get too invested
Because every time I’ve caught feelings , I’d regret it
You want to know my life story like you’re trying to make edits
This is my movie, just hope that you make it in the credits
One man band, walking to the beat of my own drum
My demons tried to rob me, wanted to hold my peace for ransom
But I conquered them and some, now they say I’m handsome
My mom just don’t want any grandsons, and I don’t want to finance them
Whenever women act foul, I tell them to give me the and-one
I got bills to stress about, you’re supposed to relieve that and some
I’m cool with whatever as long as the outcome is income
The school of hard knocks, I worked hard to become an alum
They say love is overrated, I disagree, it’s just not properly done
Doing things 50/50 became a wish instead of a rule of thumb
Ask yourself what you bring to the table, who are you trying to be?
You walk into the cookout empty handed, and expect to eat?
Not only that, but expect a feast? Try and take a to-go plate
And look at these fools with a straight face, and not feel like a disgrace
And invite others to follow the template, not carry your weight
And that wasn’t a big pun, but that’s a couch potato trait
And my words are gender natural too. These fools need to find a clue
And if they can’t find it themselves, request the help of Scooby Doo
Now let me put y’all in my shoes, show you how I see the landscape
Being single in 2016 is like volunteering for the rat race
Some men are crazy out here, I want all the women to be safe
But some of y’all looking like role players think you can’t be replaced?
I’ve lost good girls because honestly? It wasn’t time yet.
How me and shawty break up when she wasn’t even mine yet?
I’ve had girls not wanting to date & others wanting to settle down
Me? I’m somewhere in the middle so now I’m a pickle now
Starting to have doubt in how I pick ‘em now.
It’s like no matter who I choose, their worst insecurities, I bring them out.
I had people wanting to wife me, but unfortunately they weren’t the right ones
But I still wonder what if, especially when the night comes.
