Change The Game - Lyfe Jennings

Ok is this thing on here
Ok it's my turn to talk about it, alright
I want to talk about the Lyfe Jennings project
Album number 3... now this project kind of reminds
me of an ephipany I once had back in the old country ya know Jersey.

Now I would hang out at the old arcade and I would
be up there watching the little kids come in and they
would play the pinball ya know,
and they would line up one by one to play the game.

The first kid would play until he was out of quarters
then he would have to run up to the counter to get
more quarters and he would lose his place.
So another guy would step up in his spot,
so the other guy would play of course until ya know
he ran out of course to, but Then he would have to
do the same thing ya know go up front and get more
quarters so some of the kids ya know...

I notice that they came with their big bags full of
quarters, ya know thinking that they would be able
to play the game all day but eventually they would
run out of quarters too and they would lose their spot,
but low and behold there was this one kid I mean a
short stumpy guy ya know not a lot of kind features
but there was an ora about this kid ya know something different...

Now you see this kid he bought a kid with him now everybody
thought that these two guys were in competition or
something, but when the kid would near the end of his
gme he would send the other kid to go and get more quarters.
So the guy would be on the game,
I mean he would be on the game every day for hours
I mean until he was ready to leave he would stay on the game

And boda boom boda bing that's when it dawned on me
that this pinball thing is just like any other thing
in life just like any other thing the guy who stays
in the game the longest is the guy that brings change
