lyrics

Mr. Big Shot, you think you're better than me
'Cuz your daddy's got one of those fancy degrees
And more cash, a bigger better house
But y'all's hands are soft like a mouse
But then you're talkin' shit, right up in my face
Think you hit a homer but you're born on third base
So I had to teach a little lesson how the world works
Sorry 'bout your face, when I went berserk
See I come from nothin' I got nothin' to lose
My knuckles already had that bruise

These memories will never fade
I gotta thank you for the man you made
I know it was a long time ago
But look up, I'm up here now bro...

Mr. high and mighty dentist man
Had a blond daughter, dating me was her plan
But he had messed up my dad's teeth, caused him grief
Pay the bill? Well you can pound sand
Now he's tellin' her I come from bad stock
At best I'm a dumb jock
I gotta confess you really messed with my mind
Made me think what's wrong with my own kind
But in due time, I figured it out
I'm proud of who I'm from without a doubt... look at me now

These memories will never fade
I gotta thank you for the man you made
I know it was a long time ago
But look up, I'm up here now bro...

Gotta give it up to my damn pops
Three times he got the call from the cops
One time I took the van, one time I took his gun
One time I stole shit lookin' for some fun
But he never lost faith, never gave up on me
When my parents split, he knew I was angry
And had to act out, find my place
I just needed some love, a little bit of grace
He was right I had lessons to learn
About playing with fire and not getting burned... rest in peace pops

These memories will never fade
I gotta thank you for the man you made
I know it was a long time ago
But look up, I'm up here now bro...
