I am a wannabe; you better be careful around me; i come from far away, where mustang dreams are made; and we are fashioned in the image of the don's who have come before us; we all kiss the rings of sand like our fathers told us.
'cause i'm a wannabe gangstar, better go back to commack; i'm a wannabe gangstar, better go back to commack; i'm a wannabe gangstar, better go back to commack, better go back to far away.
like a lemon pie a la mode, my nine is easy to load; all hail jericho; turnpike teck, that's where i go to learn the things about the universe i'll need so i can build a stamped, 'cause i'm all up in your face again, i'm all up in your face.
