Mama told me not to try to be nobody
I listened to her
Mama told me I'd grow up to be somebody
Looka here
Savin money's hard when you can't save your soul
I'll get through it
Tryin to dig myself out of this mighty hole
Listen to what I say
Got my mind on the matter
Sure as I tell ya
Now you know that's right
I look down at my hands and
I see labor burns
It's a part of livin
Keepin my feet on the ground while the world turns
It's all on me
Got my mind on the matter
Sure as I tell ya
Now you know that's right
