So you wanna walk

So you wanna walk

You can say what you want.
Call it how you see it.
Just remember though.
The grass ain’t always greener.

Tell me how it should be.
They way I should walk
The path I should follow.
Always telling me how easy it should be.

So you wanna walk?
Then walk in my shoes.
See how they fit on you.
Come on now walk!

How you liking my shoes now?
No so easy from this side of the path.
Come on now pick up the pace.
Walk the walk in my shoes.

Let’s go, let’s go. Move on and on.
Remember you said it was so easy.
So why you struggling now too?
While you walkin in my shoes.

Sometimes they feel like they made of led.
Sometimes like they sinking in quicksand.
Like I am always headed uphill.
Walkin in my shoes ain’t easy.

So you wanna walk?
Then walk in my shoes.
See how they fit on you.
Come on now walk!

So come on now.
You ain’t walkin.
You crawlin.
Liking my shoes?

What is your advice now?
Keep on walking?
How’s the grass?
Still greener for you?

I like watchin you.
Yes,watchin you.
Try to walk, walk.
In my shoes.

I follow my path!!!
It is mine to choose.
See you at the finish line.
If ya make it in my shoes.

I know it ain’t easy to walk.
Not in my shoes.
It isn’t a simple path to follow.
No not in these shoes.

Come on!!! Come on Now!!!
Get off my back.
You can’t walk in my shoes.
Give em back and get on your own path.

These are my shoes!!!!

So you wanna walk
