    My position
    I gave to him
    I gave to them
    And what exactly did I get
    Am I the only one that remembers
    Seems they tend to forget
    The time I spent
    The hand I lent
    Whether it be love or labor
    What happen to returning the favor
    I ain’t got much
    But what I do got I share
    But I gets none in return is that really fair
    You live and you learn
    Each time I get burned
    Above and beyond was my reputation
    Maybe I’m expecting to much gratification
    I’ll be his friend
    Nothing more
    Nothing less
    I’ll do my job
    Greet and seat my guest
    I’ll answer the phone
    If he calls
    If I’m able
    And if we’re busy
    I’ll help bus the tables
    Sticking to the friend position
    Sticking to my job description
