    Betta Man Than Me

    You’s a man who speaks for himself
    I sit and remain silent
    Casting feelings on paper
    But I’m Noriega, you got a saga
    Why bother, I formed you like Sega
    The beginning I was straight till I got wrinkles
    Starch left my arch, can’t shoot so a team won’t take a
    Man like me, I play bones with the up an coming
    Knowing if they follow me, soon they’ll be bumming
    Just like me, but you, you make moves, smooth
    I like your groove

    Didn’t stray when the bullies came to play
    Julius seize the day, coup de at
    I look at the chances I blew, look what you got
    Opportunity, don’t be me like, I’m old
    Old and black, I’m only a few years older
    I carried boxes and brushes, loads on my shoulder
    You can be office exec, **** an assistant
    I look at a lot of kids and something’s missing
    You got a chance I didn’t have growing up
    Nobody was there for me when I got stuck
    But you, yet you, keep hold do what you do
    Nobody can stop you but you
