Yet ANOTHER Brad Richards Post (It’s a Little Different)

The ( ) are merely to explain the line.

Compliments to Mike Henn for challenging me  do this; even though it’s not perfect, I like it.

Now this is a story about how

My life got flipped, turned upside down (hip check)

And I’d like to take a minute just sit right here

I’ll tell you how I became the prince of a town called New York (Too bad ‘Melo beat me here)

 

In Prince Edward Island born and raised

On the pond is where I spent most of my days

Chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool

And all shooting some rubber outside of school

When a couple of guys, they were up to no good

Started pounding faces in my neighborhood (It was actually one John Scott)

I got in one little fight and my mom got scared (Because John Scott murdered me)

And said “You’re moving with ya auntie and uncle in New York”

 

I begged and pleaded with her day after day

But she packed my equipment bag and sent me on my way

She gave me a $58.5 million and then she gave me my ticket

I put my skates on and said I might as well bank it

 

First game yo this is bad (Gabby is hurt again)

Drinking beer out of Stanley’s cups

Is this what the people of New York livin’ like?

Hhhmmm this might be alright

 

I whistled for a cab and when it came near the

License plate said “UH-BOOT” and had waffless in the mirror

If anything I could say that this cab was rare

But I thought nah, forget it, yo homes to New York!

 

I. Pulled. Up to MSG

And I yelled to the cabby “Yo, homes now the Stars suck!”

Looked at my kingdom I was finally here

To sit on my throne as the prince of New York
