Verse One

Oooh! I got a call today, from my job up the block
It was my boss to say, you know we like you a lot
But we dont need you J, you daydream too much,
Well man Im glad yall let me go!

Cause with no 9 to 5, its a brand new day!
My rents due but Imma party any way!
I feel so alive, stress just faded away!
Its time to live my own life!

So, Imma let it go!!!!
Gonna leave my worries behind!
Gotta take control!

Imma let it go, no time for stress on my mind!
Imma lettin go!!!!! Oooh Im lettin go!
