lyrics

Verse 1: Random
its a typical Sunday night can't sleep,
thinkin bout the coming week
and all the promises i can't keep
Cuz there ain't enough seconds in a minute, minutes in an hour, hours in the day,
for work, when I wanna play
My lady thinking i dont show her respect,
but she dont know i Got games I haven't opened up yet--
now that's love
Every Thursday I'm cooped in a packed club -
praying this ain't the day that one of em act up -
and throw a bottle onstage rolling under my foot,
causing a fall, caught on tape that gets hundreds of looks on YouTube got screws loose, runnin like second hand
Then I get home and realize I didn't do my lesson plans,
Everyone envies the life of mega ran,
It's not all good, but i count my blessings fam,
Cause it's hard to find a job, let alone one you wanna do,
I hit the daily double, and came up on 2,
3 If you count a loyal significant other
this didn't seem as hard when I lived with my mother
But I got tired of hearin it "go on and get serious,"
now I be flowin like, regular periods,
growing as a lyricist in my 6 years in this,
And I learned so much--so I think it's time to grow up,
packin my lunch, doritos, and cold cuts
One more pay cut--and I'm out -- time to wake up!!

CHORUS
If ya don't move, then ya don't eat
So ya better get up on your feet
it's a new day, running outta time
so ya gotta grind, time to rise and shine (2x)

Verse 2: MC Frontalot:

no snooze! you wanted to be a rapper now you got what you were after
today don't wanna? well you have to
grab the mic and make noises into it
you and the beat get intimate, send a report to the syndicate
indicating that you'll have a track ready soon
comment thread's incredulous but @replies swoon
"when, when?" but then ALARM ALARM oh no, I slipped
into a dream, didn't even get a single rhyme writ
and the rig isn't equipped and there's a sound check in an hour
you know how you sometimes meet a nerd rapper who hasn't showered
well that was probably me. i beg your forgiveness.
it's only through your largesse that I'm even allowed to live this
dream out. So when I'm cussing about my wack boss
Old Man Front running his sweat shop, take a sad pause,
shed a lone tear, and then remind me
that every day I wake up is a day dawned kindly

CHORUS
If ya don't move, then ya don't eat
So ya better get up on your feet
it's a new day, running outta time
so ya gotta grind, time to rise and shine (2x)

verse 3, Random:
Wait up dont tell me it's time wake up
Snoring like a bulldozer going like the brakes cut
Eye boogers starting to cake up
6:30 sharp, I gotta pick the pace up
Get my face up, off the pillow it ain't much
Time for a meal so I just grab the k cup,
French roast and get ghost and take lunch
If I'm late once, more I'm gone, case shut
Netflix was on shouldn't have stayed up,
Last night, Watching Jimi tear the stage up
Hop the train just missed the late bus,
get a taxi he taxed me, 28 bucks
Runnin late but maybe I can make up,
Time --stay after hours, and face up,
to the music, no excuses straight up
I mean I came to work, what else do they want?
head straight up, the hall, to A-1
My secretary always has something to say but--
This time what she said left me straight crushed..
"You do know it's Saturday, right?"
Say what?
