Back Up Plan (後備計劃) - Mahalia

Written by:Mahalia Burkmar/James Burkmar/Debbion Burkmar

 

As a child she would analyse lyrics

 

She would tear apart each word and turn it into a gimmick

 

She used to play with the melodies and beats and the words

 

She would come in singing things that no one had heard

 

As a child she was always pretty bright

 

Never *ing with the girls or getting into fights

 

There was something in her head

And there was something in her mind

 

There was something going round

 

There was something burning bright

 

This don't matter to me

Soon I'll be on TV and

 

I won't have to dream

No more

 

This ain't got nothing on me

Soon I'll be VIP

I'll be makin' money

Being a G

 

Going properly

 

Teachers used to say

 

What do you want to be

 

As soon as she says singer they all look at her blankly like

 

Darling darling you need to have a back up plan

 

Like what she said

Working in Matalan

 

Well quite frankly miss

 

I've already applied

 

With the other thousand applicants standing in the line but

 

That ain't my calling

I'm tired of your warnings cuz

I won't be falling

 

So move over darling

 

This don't matter to me

Soon I'll be on TV and I won't have

To dream

No more

This ain't got nothing on me

Soon I'll be VIP

I'll be making money

Being a G

Going properly

Now she's grown she's all alone with

Two kids screaming on the phone

 

It's landlord calling for his rent but she's still stalling

Cuz she can't pay again

 

And yes she's going to court today

 

For the dress she stole away

 

It was for a big audition

Oh my

She's on a mission to

Show the teachers and the guys

 

She made something of her life

There's something in her head

There's something in her mind

There's something going round

There's something burning bright

 

This don't matter to me

Soon I'll be on TV and

I won't have to dream

No more

This ain't got nothing on me

Soon I'll be VIP

I'll be making money

Being a G

But it don't

 

Come free
