|About me:||Now this is the story, all about how|
My life got flipped, turned upside down
So I’d like to take a minute, just sit right there
I’ll tell ya how I became the prince of a life solitaire.
In North California, born and raised
In books, written pages I spent many a day
Seekin’ out, learnin’, breakin’ all the rules
And just livin’ all my own, try’n’ not to be a fool
When all’a these people that seemed doin’ so good
Started gettin’ doubted by my livelihood
By a critical light I came at last aware
I said “If you felt it too you’d be a prince solitaire”
I found my mind free, I was lost and I feared
That endless possibility condemned me here
Reason and I found no ground and we stared…
But yo man, I beat it… walked on - solitaire!
I came… into my own - what y’all got wouldn’t sate
And I yelled to their rules, Yo home! Smell ya later!
I looked at my kingdom, I was finally there,
My mind on the throne, as the Prince Solitaire!
