Once about a time there was a kid Who didn't have a bicycle or a car that skid Only thing he had was Pat and Turner He didn't know the future but the lesson to learn-ah Way to get started in the music biz Just listen to the story as I tell it like it is I was a youngster from East Junior High School Who thought somebody with Adidas sweat-shirt was cool It symbolized somethin, but I don't know I wanted to be down really really bad so I asked one of my best friends Derek Mangareu "see'mon man can I be down can I be down witcha crew?" He had one by the name of Masters of Control I wanted to be down, so I could play the role He said, "No you're not good enough we have ours Mark" I went home and sat in the room with no lights in the dark And this is gonna be a rough rendezvous And that's why I sing this song to you I'm a lonely soldier.. yeah.. Many miles from home.. With a heart that's heavy.. And with.. a will that's strong I got a little older, three years to be exact When a crew named Midnight Express gave me a crack It consist of one MC and two DJ's And the way Kevin D cut had me amazed It was like I just joined the Lakers Or even Rock Steady or the New York City Breakers I was in 11th grade, at ?? High They was sayin they was sayin hey what's wrong with this guy Because all he do, is bang on tables and mumble And doin music with his mouth like a band ensemble Or the human beatbox wasn't thought about And the teachers they thought I was crazy without a doubt I guess they didn't understand what I was comin from Since I was into MC'n, they thought I was dumb Then there was a teacher by the name of Ms. K Parke Since I was good at rememberin numbers she said I was smart But that don't got nothin to do with this rendezvous And THAT'S why I sing this song to you! I'm a lonely soldier.. yeah.. Many miles from home.. With a heart that's heavy.. And with.. a will that's strong I was a walkin son of a gun before the day I begun I'ma tell you how it started, from day one Well me, I lived in >??I was ambitious and devoted til the day I'd die I used to get on Fair Islip, take the S-42 Get off at Bunanan Street, and go to the house of the crew I would walk from C.I., to Bay Shore Just to see if I really had the rhymes galore I'd go to house parties here, go to house parties there Walk the ?? ?? pants off my derriere Like if I was David Carridine who played "Kung Fu" Who would walk from China to Japan without a shoe Hummin beats, sayin rhymes, kept me goin From givin up or bein crazy, or just stop flowin My teachers and parents said, I should just stop Just go to army go to college get a job witcha POPS?! I can't take no more of this rendezvous And that's why I sing this song to you! I'm a lonely soldier.. yeah.. Many miles from home.. With a heart that's heavy.. And with.. a will that's strong I'm a lonely soldier.. Many miles from home.. With a heart that's heavy.. And with.. a will that's strong
