Show Time

from by Mission Man



It's time to wake up
Mkae myself some breakfast
What comes next is
Time to do some work or maybe find some
Staying on the grind until the night comes
Looking forward to show time
So I can go rhyme
And in my mind

Chorus: It's show time
It's time to bust moves
And time to just groove
And time to let loose

Working everyday to build a better future
This is my life and this is what I do to
Try to make it better on a day to day basis
Covering my bases
Trading some of my hours for dollars so I can spend them
Paying utilities so companies don't suspend them
And yes
I've gotta get through the stress
Of being able to pay my rent
So many hours and dollars already spent
And I haven't got gas or filled my belly yet
So I take a break, relax with the tele set
Back to work for a while
Find a way to smile
Knowing that my hours are adding up
I hit the point in the day where I know I've had enough
I'm so ready for the moment that I love


I'm done making money for my time
And I'm
Moving on
So my groove is strong
Practicing my dance moves
In my bedroom
Learning my bed against the wall so I can just zoom
Back and forth
So I can stay on course
And mabe rehearse until my voice is hoarse
Hoping the crowd comes, but the choice is yours
Playing the drums, bass, guitar and keyboard
Playing around with the chords
Until I find the soound
That makes me want to get down
Spending hours in the session
Getting my expression right
So I can get in a fresh set tonight


This is the moment that I truly love
It's just proof that the groove's enough
It's not about me or you, it's us
Coming together in the moment, we own it, and I know why
Dancing and singing in unison is so fly
The moment when "oh my"
Becomes "oh ours"
Knowing that this minute is better than those hours
Everybody's winning and we're all getting more powers
Feeling collectively invincible
Feel like we'll win it all
Just by keeping the music spinning all
And everyone's feeling alright


And it's our time!
