Standards Songtext
von Leslie Odom, Jr.

Standards Songtext

When it was crumbs, scraps, pennies, pats
Everything was fine
They treat me like a loaded gun
When I ask for what is mine
Always try to dim my light, no matter how bright I shine
I've got my standards, and I'll never let'em die

Not because of pride
You're not bleeding me dry
Cannot abide
I got my head on a swivel this time
Why would I let you just twist it aside
I catch a fever when they aimin' at the way I live my life
These are my standards

I ain't gon' never never let'em die
I ain't gon' never never let'em die
I ain't gon never never let'em die
These are my standards


When I called for help
You didn't pick up your phone
You saw my kingly potential
So you kept me from my throne
The truth is I'm demonized for standing my own ground
So you push me to the deep end hoping I'd drown

But I got my, I got my...

I ain't gon' never never let'em die
I ain't gon' never never let'em die
I ain't gon' never never let'em die
These are my standards

Cause I won't let ya treat me so unfair
Don't I deserve my God-given share
Whether I've got a dollar or I'm a billionaire
These are my standards

I ain't gon' never never let them die
Because of pride
Losing my spine
(Cannot abide)
I got my head on a swivel this time
Why would I let ya

I catch a fever when they aimin' at the way I live my life
These are my standards
That I'm never lettin' die
