to handle heavy things and lift.
He tried tell me to quit.
I didn't listen, so he made me listen, no

Was a good worker with my hands, tried my
Using my head will be a big test.
Didn't have time for family,friends or me.
Just worked a lot it meant money,money.
Without thinking I didn't know what I
Now that I had to slow down,and forced
to look around.
Saw I had family,friends and peoople who
Should've Been Listening
