PAID MY DUES (PRODUCTION COMP SHEET)

spoken intro
you can say what you want about me
try to do what you want to me
but you can not stop me

verse 1
iíve been, knocked down in some crazy towns
even got punched in the face in l.a.
but there ainít nutiiní in the world
that keep me from doiní what i wanna do
cos iím, too proud, too strong
i live by the code that you gotta move on
feeling sorry for yourself ainít got nobody nowhere

b verse 1
so i, held my head high (i knew i)
knew iíd survive (well i made it)
i made it (donít hate it)
thatís just the way it goes

chorus 1
i done made it through, stand on my own two
i paid my dues
tried to hold me down, you canít stop me now
i paid my dues

verse 2
now iím, still tested everyday
people try to mess with anastacia

thatís worked just fine up Ďtil now
