Loonie – L.O.O.N.I.E lyrics

Time seems to pass me by when I write rhyme
Schemes to satisfy the minds of those who close their
Ears and use their eyes to listen, I don't have time for
Dissin cuz I've been workin, grindin
9 to 5 to survive, writin rhymes while I'm alive
But I gotta hustle, everyday I pray
God, graveyard shift, can't call it a dayjob
Aren't you glad you waited for the day you graduated?
Hey you made it, way to go! Congratulations! Yeah hurray kid
Education takes you places
Hospitals with cancer patients
Airplanes, 2 Days to Vegas
Mainframes and databases
Pay's great but I hate to say this
It's a case to case basis
And I hate to break your faith but the Bathing Apes
Will have to wait cuz you're an undergraduate
And you can't backtrack the path you went
To add to it, you had to quit
Your job stinks like a fat-ass when it's flatulent

I carry this cross everyday
And I'm lost in a maze
I get applause or a raise
If my boss is amazed

Torture and pain before fortune and fame
I was born to be paid as a corporate slave

What do you wanna be when you grow up?

So you're a call center agent and you're yappin away
With more slang than Filipino cats in L. A.
You can't evade taxes, your taxes evade you
Work without no play baby that's what the slaves do
And now you're feeling like a slave
Trapped in a cage with your master whippin you
While you're askin for stale food
Can't pass the test
Guessin random answers will save you
So you pray to Angel Gabriel and Hesus
And I don't think you'll be able to last in a day
If you're lazy, you'll "blow" your "job"
Faster than gays do
There's no minimum or maximum age
But don't get it twisted this ain't maximum wage fool
Salary is great why don't you ask em who pays you
You should be earnin dollars, ask for a raise dude
You would never ever let a has been replace you
And you're American until your accent betrays you

I carry this cross everyday
And I'm lost in a maze
I get applause or a raise
If my boss is amazed

Torture and pain before fortune and fame
I was born to be paid as a corporate slave

What do you wanna be when you grow up?

Aren't you glad you waited for the day you graduated?
Hey you made it, way to go! Congratulations! Yeah hurray kid

What do you wanna be when you grow up?
What do you wanna be when you grow up?
