Testo della canzone Retire My Jersey (Packy), tratta dall'album Guess You Had to Be There

Retire My Jersey - Packy

I had my feet to the fire, I kept my head looking skyward
I'll be working 'til I die but I need my jersey retired
I prayed, I dreamed, red lights turned green
I don't chase rings, stayed home, made kings

Admit it, we made it look too easy
Everybody doesn't have the juice
If the days comes that I'm pushing paper
I'll be pulling paper too
Rap checks when we 82
Two men like how we made it move
Made it move
No windows on the bedroom stu'
How the hell we got thirty million views?
Tell me that I'll never hit the hall of fame
I'm a hero in my hometown
Real me same as rap me
Got some real ones and they hold me down
I just wanna put my people on
Been that way from the get-go
Some of y'all never learned patience
So I had to learn to let go

Same team, same team
One love, one dream
Put my number in the rafters
Let 'em know I made it to the league
Same team, same team
One love, one dream
Put my number in the rafters
When I die, I'll leave a legacy

Yeah, industry full of politicians
I don't get the pub', I don't do the most
I was never buddy-bud
I was never with the elbow-rub
I was never with the fake love
Prolly why they think I never came up
How many local rappers got 'em lined up
Around the corner like the plug?
They don't like it when you know the game
Ooh, they love it when you acting up
Tell the kids that they don't need a middleman
Got the résumé to back it up
You gotta get on before you can put on
They were lookin' at me tryna rush it
Now when you Speck affiliated in the city
Can't nobody touch it

I had my feet to the fire, I kept my head lookin' skyward
I'll be working 'til I die but I need my jersey retired
I prayed, I dreamed, red lights turned green
I don't chase rings, stayed home, made kings

Same team, same team
One love, one dream
Put my number in the rafters
Let 'em know I made it to the league
Same team, same team
One love, one dream
Put my number in the rafters
When I die, I'll leave a legacy
