This song is a remix of "I'm New Here" by Gil Scott-Heron.
I did not become someone different
That I did not want to be
But I'm new here
Will you show me around?

Met a woman in a bar
Told her I was hard to get to know
And near impossible to forget

She said I had an ego on me
The size of Texas

Well, I'm new here and I forget
Does that mean big
Or small?

And I'm shedding plates like a snake
And it may be crazy
But I'm the closest thing I have
To a voice of reason

I met him at a party
He said the sweetest things
I was lonely and naive
I guess that's why I believed
Every word
Every word
Every word
Every word
Every word
Every word
Every word
Every word
Every word
Every word

I met him at a party
Met a woman in a bar
He said the sweetest things
Told her I was hard to get to know
I was lonely and naive
And near impossible to forget
I guess that's why I believed
Every word
