VERSE 1
Em
   Yeah I was born a misfit, grew up ten miles from the town of Ipswich
                         D
Wanted to make it big, I wished it to existence
  Em
I never was a sick kid, always dismissed quick
                        D
“Stick to singing, stop rappin’ like it’s Christmas”
 
    Em
And if you’re talkin’ money then my conversation’s shiftin’
Cmaj7                             D
  My dreams are bigger than just bein’ on the rich list
Em
   Might be insanity but people call it gifted
   Cmaj7                       D
My face is goin’ numb from the shit this stuff is mixed with
 
Em
   Watch how the lyrics in the songs might get twisted
   Cmaj7                      D
My wife wears red but looks better without the lipstick
    Em
I’m a private guy and you know nothin’ ’bout my business
    Cmaj7                 D
And if I had my fifteen minutes, I must’ve missed them
 
Em
   Twenty years old is when I came in the game
             Cmaj7                    D
And now it’s eight years on and you remember the name
           Em
And if you thought I was good, well then I’m better today
          Cmaj7                            D
But it’s ironic how you people thought I’d never be great
 
          Em
I like my shows open air, Tokyo to Delaware
         Cmaj7                    D
Put your phones in the air if you wanna be rocked
           Em
You know I want way more than I’ve already got
          N.C.
Give me a song with Eminem and 50 Cent in the club
 
 
CHORUS 1
            Em
You know it ain’t my time to call it a day
       Cmaj7           Bm7
I wanna crack on and I wanna be paid
        Em
But it’s ’bout time you remember the name
   Cmaj7  Bm7
Eh-ay, eh-ay
 
            Em
You know it ain’t my time to call it a day
       Cmaj7           Bm7
I wanna crack on and I wanna be paid
        Em
But it’s ’bout time you remember the name
   Cmaj7  Bm7
Eh-ay, eh-ay  (hey, hey, hey)
 
 
VERSE 2
Em
   I can still remember (what) tryna shop a deal (ah-huh)
                    D
From Taco Bell to T-R-L
                Em
I climb the Billboard charts to the top until as fate would have it (yeah)
                    D
Became an addict, funny ‘cause I had pop appeal
 
Em
   But they said time would tell (what?)
                Cmaj7                    D
If I'd prevail (huh?) and all I did was (what?)
                     Em
Put nine inch nails (where?), in my eyelids now (what?)
                          N.C.
I'm seein' diamond sales, like I'm in Zales
 
                   Em
Without a doubt by any means, if rap was skinny jeans
                       Cmaj7                             D
I couldn't do anything in 'em, I'd be splitting seams of denim when I'm spitting schemes
      Em
Which really means no ifs, ands or buts are squeezin' in between
    Cmaj7                          D
You sleep on me 'cause you're only fuckin’ with me in your dreams
 
Em
   Not even when I’m even on my deathbed
           Cmaj7                     D
Man I feel like Ed, it isn't time to drop the mic yet
        Em
So why would I quit, the thought that I would stop when I'm dead
             Cmaj7                        D
Just popped in my head, I said it then forgot what I said
 
 
CHORUS 2
        Em
It isn't my time to call it a day
     Cmaj7                Bm7
I got rap blocked and I’m already paid
        Em
But it’s ’bout time you remember the name
   Cmaj7  Bm7
Eh-ay, eh-ay
 
        Em
You know it ain’t my time to call it a day
     Cmaj7                Bm7
I got rap blocked and I’m already paid
        Em
But it’s ’bout time you remember the name
   Cmaj7  Bm7
Eh-ay, eh-ay
 
 
VERSE 3
Em                                            D
Ain’t nobody cold as me, I dress so fresh, so clean
                Em
You can find me in my whip, rockin’ my Fendi drip
                          D
Man you know just what I mean
 
        Em
Shinin’ wrist with the rocks on it, Buscemis with locks on it
     Cmaj7              D
Everything my voice on, this shit knock, don't it?
  Em
Balenciaga saga, I'm in Bergdorf ballin'
     Cmaj7                    D
It’s just another episode, my hoes, I spoil ‘em
 
Em
She like the fly shit and I like to buy shit
     Cmaj7                          D
Shit I’m gettin’ stupid money, what else we gon’ do with money?
Em
Bitch we be ballin’ now, the king bring you 50 bottles
  Cmaj7                       D
Tonight we gon’ blow a check, worry ’bout your shit tomorrow
 
    Em
The turn up be so real, we ’bout to be super lit
Cmaj7                                  D
Boy I’m kickin’ straight facts, that’s just how we do this shit
  Em
Tomorrow we hangin’ over ’til we start feelin’ sober
     Cmaj7                       N.C.
Then it’s time to start it over, here we go again

You know it ain’t my time to call it a day
     Cmaj7                Bm7
I got rap blocked and I’m already paid
          Em
But it’s a-bout time you remember the name
   Cmaj7  Bm7
Eh-ay, eh-ay
 
            Em
You know it ain’t my time to call it a day
     Cmaj7                Bm7
I got rap blocked and I’m already paid
        Em
But it’s ’bout time you remember the name
   Cmaj7  Bm7
Eh-ay, eh-ay
