Paid my dues

You can say what you want about me
Try to do what you want to me
But you cannot stop me

I’ve been knocked down
it’s a crazy town
Even got punched in the face in LA
Ain’t nothing in the world that can keep
me from doing what I wanna do

‘Cause I’m too proud, I’m too strong
Live by the code that you gotta move on
Feeling sorry for yourself
ain’t got nobody nowhere

so I…(held my head high)
I knew I (knew I’d survive)
Well I made it (I made it)
I don’t hate it (Don’t hate it)
That’s just the way it goes (Yeah)
I done made it through
Stand on my own two
I paid my dues (yeah)
Tried to hold me down
You can’t stop me now
I paid my dues

So like I told you
You cannot stop me
I’ve paid my dues

Now I’m still tested everyday
people try to mess with Me
got another thing comin’
’cause I handle mine
and I thought I better let you know

I’m no punk I can’t get down
I don’t give a damn about who’s around
that’s worked just fine ’til now

So I…(Held my head high)
Knew I (Knew I’d survive)
Well I made it (I made it)
Oahh (Don’t hate it)
That’s just the way it goes (Yeah)
I done made it through
Stand on my own two
I paid my dues (Yeah yeah)

Tried to hold me down
you can’t stop me now
I paid my dues, yeah

yeah yeah yeah

Took so long to get me here (here)
But I won’t live in fear (fear)
You try to steal my shine (shine)
But first they wanna build you up (up)
Then they tear you down (down)
It’s a struggle, you try to bubble

so I…(Held my head high)
Knew I (Knew I survive)
Oahh (I made it)
(Don’t hate it)
Said that’s – just – the – wayyyyy
(I done made it through)
(Stand on my own two)
I said I paid my, I paid my dues
Yeahhhhh
(Tried to hold me down)
But you can’t stop me now (you can’t stop me now)
(I paid my dues) I paid my, paid my dues
(I done made it through) oahhh
(Stand on my own two) oh
(I paid my dues) I paid my, I paid my dues
yeahh (Tried to hold me down)
But you can’t stop me now (you can’t stop me now)
(I paid my dues) I paid my dues
