WEIRDO - the conversation

Hey! Yeah, you. You big weirdo! Where do you think you are about to go? Don't you know your mama and daddy barely finished 10th grade Now here you are talking about college and "grad" school like you got it made It will never work, you silly fool Foolish talks of college and "grad" school (Chuckle) Crazy self, talking about owning your own company Weirdo, please! You broke! Don't you know you gon' need some money? And why you always reading books and trying to use big words? Like you better than somebody, ain't you got the nerves Who are you to be talking about traveling and seeing the world? You know good and well ain't nobody on this block ever been past Normandy and Pearl (Chuckle) Sittin' around daydreamin' everyday Just wastin' time like it's a holiday - Pause - Hey, you! Yeah, you. Remember when you called me a weirdo? Well, that's fine. You can call me whatever you like but I need to let you know This weirdo has a master's and just started his own company Humility is king so I'm not bragging but I'm making pretty good money And oh! By the way, I thought you should know that I'm still reading books, traveling, and seeing the world Beautiful places like Ghana, Maldives, Paris, and Taiwan, far away from Normandy and Pearl
