G.I.R.L. Guide Cookies
(J. Ward SOCAN / J. McDonald SOCAN / E. Piol SOCAN / R. Lauzon)

And if you're feeling what we're saying, say hey hey hey
And if you're buying what we're selling or you're finding it compelling
And you're smelling what we're cooking, ok (ok!)
ok (ok) and by the way,

[Robb]
I used to swear I only needed one track where I could
Shine, and show I was iller. You know, so you can compare
The represented lyricists side-by-side, and determine the winner
Many years have passed, many cold winters.
I’ve seen my peers surpass my wildest dreams, so I figure
I made it if they still lend me their ear. Young rappers
stepping over each other, but there’s no enemies here
This rap race in bad taste, pitted against one another
Label execs imprison cons in cage match with your brother
I wonder if I had a blueprint way back before pay-to-play
Telling every girl I met, “I rap”
Writing songs for every love interest, throwing shows with no
Interest. My juniors making my mistakes after I’ve impressed
Illustrate my lessons and hope they see them, Hindsight
Is 20/20, and now I put it in English

And if you're feeling what we're saying, say hey hey hey
And if you're buying what we're selling or you're finding it compelling
And you're smelling what we're cooking, ok (ok!)
ok (ok) and by the way,

I used to swear I would only need one verse
To show and prove I was the move even though I was younger
I never stopped feeling that way as my years advanced
Thinking that a voice from on high would say "here's your chance!"
Like I was waiting for engraved invitations
Great expectations for delayed gratification
Gravely mistaken, strangely impatient
Watching my train pull away from the station
whoo... Having that optical illusion
On the platform, feeling like it's obviously moving
And if I disappoint you and don't break through before my
Doom I'm sure my value will be posthumously proven
I talk with old slang, my costume is quaint
I'm a RIP mural, all it costs you is paint
No I'm sure I don't get it, I'll just watch you explain, but
I can't claim it's something I will not do again.

And if you're feeling what we're saying, say hey hey hey
And if you're buying what we're selling or you're finding it compelling
And you're smelling what we're cooking, ok (ok!)
ok (ok) and by the way,

you’ve got to pay to play

I used to swear I would only need to gig
And doing a ton of free shows, that would make me big
Or somewhat notorious, hook fans like the chorus did
Collect coins like Mario, and girls wanna marry me
Well, that was a fantasy, ‘cause now that my name grown
They ain’t wanna pay me dough, or pay me commission on
The tickets I sold, well, not for my service, though
Too bad, well, the curtain’s closed and I’m just like, what?
Ain’t you heard of word of mouth? Then I’m gonna be dropping out
And if you owe me money, I’ll be choking promoters out
I’m just kidding, I’m just way too nice to do something so violent
But it’s so sad like violins, and they just be hiding it
That pay-to-play disguised as a showcase or competition
Well, my decision is that I ain’t really be fucking with it
They’re slowly killing my ambition and always got me second guessing
OK, I learned my lesson - word to ELE and Emergenza

And if you get it, say hey hey hey
And if you're buying what we're selling and you're finding it compelling
And you're smelling what we're cooking, ok (ok!)
ok (ok) no pay-to-play
