Reh Dogg – Assertive lyrics

(Intro)
Damn, Why yall talk about assertive yo?
Yall didn't know me, said yall niggas didn't know me
(Verse)
Assertive what must I do to be hired in the field
I went to school to be a computer tech, everywhere I go they judge me
Is it the way that I carry myself? They say I don't have experience
How can I, yall won't give me a chance in hell
(Chorus)
Assertive I've got much to give let me live
Assertive I've got talent and I know I'm worth it
Assertive I've got to overcome this monkey on my back
Assertive I need to get my life back on track
(Verse)
Oh well I've got questions and nobody out there have the answers to tell
Yall upset me you make my head swell I've invested fourteen grand
Yall won't help me man how much assertiveness must I show
If I was white or yellow bet yall would hire me quick, this is a bunch of bullshit
(Chorus)
Assertive I've got much to give let me live
Assertive I've got talent and I know I'm worth it
Assertive I've got to overcome this monkey on my back
Assertive I need to get my life back on track
(Verse)
I've had it with the corporate man yall just don't give a damn
If I was a light skin black man my chances would greatly increase
But yall don't know I am a dark skin black man yall don't have a heart
I speak my mind I won't be quite don't make this man start a world wide riot
(Chorus)
Assertive I've got much to give let me live
Assertive I've got talent and I know I'm worth it
Assertive I've got to overcome this monkey on my back
Assertive I need to get my life back on track
(Verse)
I try so hard to live an honest life but at this rate I have to live a life of crime
Seems to be the way to go if you want lots of doe the sun will come out tomorrow
I really hope so as long as I have a voice I will remain to flow in the perfect world
I would be married to an Asian Ho, don't get it twisted Ho is short for honey
I aint tryning to be funny
