Had to play with fire and get burned
Only way the boy ever gon' learn
Had to lay way in the cut, til I finally got my turn
Now I'm on top in the spot that I earned
I had to experience it for myself before I could really understand it.
I had to be patient and wait until I got my opportunity
And now I’m reaping the benefits of all my hard work!
