She Wanted What She Wanted To Give Image

I knew exactly what she meant,
When it was mentioned.
And I had it to give,
To know it was success.
But my mind was not limited,
To addressing impressions by the way I was dressed.
I was one with initiative.
With a knowing if I had created 'anything',
The creating of it would be at my best.

But...
She wanted what she wanted to give image.
And not what I wanted with initiative.
She wanted what she wanted to give image.

I wanted to start something on my own.
To work hard to see it grow.
And if I had purchased a broom to sweep,
I was prepared to do this alone to condone.

But...
She wanted what she wanted to give image.
And not what I wanted with initiative.
She wanted what she wanted to give image.

If I had to clean a toilet to reach the top.
With a pail full of water and slop to mop,
This I did with initiative...
Because the businesses I had liked me a lot.

I wanted to start something on my own.
To work hard to see it grow.
And if I had purchased a broom to sweep,
I was prepared to do this alone to condone.

'A janitor?
A JANITOR? ? ? '

Yeah.
But this is a business 'we' can own alone.

'No.
That is a business I can't condone.
There is no 'we'.
That's 'you'.
On your own.'

I knew exactly what she meant,
When it was mentioned.
And I had it to give,
To know it was success.
But my mind was not limited,
To addressing impressions by the way I was dressed.
I was one with initiative.
With a knowing if I had created 'anything',
The creating of it would be at my best.

But...
She wanted what she wanted to give image.
And not what I wanted with initiative.
OH she wanted what she wanted to give image.
And with a flaunting to others to quick deliver and give.
Yes she wanted what she wanted to give image.

'A janitor?
A JANITOR? ? ? '

Yeah.
But this is a business 'we' can own alone.

'No.
That is a business I can't condone.
There is no 'we'.
That's 'you'.
On your own.'

But I've already gotten in one week,
FIVE businesses under contract.
Who cares if I get them,
To apply with a mop or broom to sweep?

'You could have been a bank president!
How about that?
I have an image to aspire with a getting to keep.

She wanted what she to give image.
And not what I wanted with initiative.
OH she wanted what she wanted to give image.
And with a flaunting to others to give.
Yes she wanted what she wanted to give image.
