    I waited for the day,
    Till the last ray of the sun,
    When I rose at the peak,
    And was next to none...

    Oh, but isn't that day now?
    I'm already on top of the world,
    Looking down on it all from above,
    Here by the sweat of my brow...

    With a mountain of effort and twice as many prayers,
    The rhythm of this little world in my heart,
    Once you get it down, oh baby you can wear a crown,
    With a throne of imagined gold and angels in the air...

    This prince rules with just the proper amount of flare,
    Cunning and knowledge, a little something extra,
    Though I might be a bit short of regality,
    Somehow I got a little something called savoir faire...

    You know it wasn't easy,
    But I don't like things that are.
    What is the fun of fighting
    When it is not a gruesome war!

    From coast to coast, Ray has it going on,
    And I don't plan on stopping no time soon,
    Because I years ahead of me,
    And they say moss don't grow on a rolling stone...

    Cocky like newborn rooster in the limelight,
    The very definition of narcissist,
    Mirrors never looked so pretty,
    But why wouldn't they, a smile never shined so bright...

    If this was was the '60s, Elvis would be callin' me the King,
    The British would talk about my 'invasion',
    Time Magazine might make an edition just for me,
    Lord have mercy,it's just too hot with all the heat I bring...

    Still haven't lost a step in my unique swagger,
    Rhyming diamonds, poetry platinum, every stanza is a jewel,
    Keep it rolling, the best is yet to come,
    Would you tell'm where you got your moves, Jagger?

    The kinda guy wearing shades in a dimly lit room,
    That sorta dude in the VIP, uninvited,
    In fifteen minutes I'll be kicked out, but that's alright,
    Why should I worry, was destined for glory out the womb...

    I told you I could sense my time coming,
    And boy it was just smelling so fine,
    Keep your face hidden, doubters,
    The glory was always going to be mine...
