Lyrics

Your not the boss of me

Written By: Hoffmeister

YOU'RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME

I'm here if you need me
I'm here if you don't
I'll Give you the answers
Still do what you want
When was the last time that you said
"Oh Yeah, got to see this thing that I did"
Cause that's the kind of spark
that gets things to start
Like smashing things together to pull them apart
A method to the madness
a blind eye to sadness
greed leads to grandness
so just try to manage
tolerate the canvas
people look to damn us
look into the cameras
We'll make it glamorous
Every time you learn we'll have to show
a little more
you have to go
and know
when to put that shit to bed

YOU'RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME, YOU'RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME
YOU'RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME, BECAUSE I AM FREE

Riots on the streets and the stores
get your canned goods,
even space stations are havin' a hard time.
In this day in age I try to turn the page,
but don't believe this is happenin' in my lifetime.
We gotta figure it out, the sticky situation.
So I ask my older sister for some information.
Come to find out
The only one who's holding' back is big brother!
S'why we gotta live, and learn from one another.
Help out and be strong, this won't last long.
Life is a gift, and a spliff is the rift.
The tipping point is right now!
Dont'cha know it. It's the simplest of foundations.
Don't blow it!

YOU'RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME, YOU'RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME
YOU'RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME, BECAUSE I AM FREE

Re-Tracing your steps. Every day. For years.
Ex-pect-ing a different out-come. Then Beers.
Hits 1,2,3,4,5-6,7,8
Wake up in the morning saying' "I FEEL GREAT!"
Screw it up with the venom
Startin' Proir to a cup of Joe
Let-Ting the dogs out
straight to the mop i go.
Spic an Span an hot water. Quarter past six.
Steppin' inna pile of dog mess. "price-less"
These tracks to no where.
Commin' back around
you just exist?!
YOU KNOW THAT"S WRONG!
Pull your skin together.
Grab the rudder. Hold tight!
set your course,dead ahead. never giiiiiive up the fight be-cause...

YOU'RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME, YOU'RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME
YOU'RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME, BECAUSE I AM FREE

You're not the boss
Yo, I think you're lost
Gonna treat ya like a salad
and your shit gets tossed
Out the window, Comprendo?!
You must be smoking' Indo
Life is not a game
And yet you treat it like Nintendo
Who is the best?
That's us, just us!
Hoffmeister is the name that you can quickly trust
Sometimes our shit might seem a bit ridiculous
You ask how can it be so infectious?
Other MC's try and test us
They try to criticize, and try to second guess us
Ya might wanna get yourself some lessons
On how to hold the mic down with perfection.

YOU'RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME, YOU'RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME
YOU'RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME, BECAUSE I AM FREE
