Once I was younger than
The youngest of fragile minds
I ate the day with bad manners
Then spit out the rind
And mother, mother told me
As I looked to the sky
Yes my mother told me, "my dear son,
You're not the one"
I flew home when I was just 21
Young enough to be the father of someone
I've got a conch pissed with conch republic rum
My father by my side, teary-eyed, he said:
"Son, by God, what I could have done,
And you're just like me
You can, really put 'em down
If I was in your place, I'd stay, have fun"
But I'm not the one
Now I'm sittin' here
Haggling over sums
Money made by someone else
To me, it don't belong
I toss a smile to the mighty boss
He's my God
But I'm a bit backwards
And I know he's just a fuckin' dog
And mother, mother told me,
Yes my mother told me my dear son
"You're not the one"
"you're not the one"
