A Poet Like Me

know you wanna write like me
I know that you do
I know you do
That's why whever I come around, you're all over me
And I know you're jealous
I know that you are
It's easy to see
So damm easy to see
And in the back of your mind I know you're plotting to get rid of me


Don't cha wish your pen was hot like mine
Don't cha wish you were bold like me
Don't cha
Don't cha
Don't cha wish you had talent like mine
Don't cha wish that you were free like me
Don't cha
Don't cha

Fight the feeling
Fight that feeling
Oh yeah
Leave me alone
Leave this lady alone
Cause if you can't write it just as good
It just ain't enough to break up your own career
Uh-uh, uh-uh
Let's keep it friendly
Let's play nice
You have to play fair
No more trying to take my place
See, I don't care
But I know my readers ain't wanna be scared by you


Don't cha wish you your pen was hot like mine
Don't cha wish you were bold like me
Like me
Don't cha
Don't cha
Don't cha crybaby
Don't cha, alright, try to write
Don't cha wish you had talent bigger then mine
Bigger then mine
Don't cha wish you free like me
Don't cha crybaby
Don't cha

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
