Hmmm…what should I show ‘em

Oh, I forgot! I’m broke

Hmmm…what should I show ‘em

Aliens both big and small

Shall I invite these new creatures for some alcohol

Show them my science test about nomenclature (I nailed)

Take ‘em for a walk through nature (we failed)

No no no that crap won’t do

I want them to know “us” through and through

So I’ll do some diggin to let them know

Through old video evidence of war, and maybe 902010 the show

Maybe we’ll see a video trying to hit our nostalgia for 90s cartoons

Or TV show about two bros building nice rooms

Maybe it’ll be a reaction vi-de-o

A breakdown of celeb beef, cheats like Ne-or food to go

Nah, I know what’ll be our legacy

May call this a video of a delicacy

Let’s take it back to the year twenty twenty

A TikTok video of Dalgona coffee whipped gently

Let’s show them the nitty, gritty, and the ugly

Socks with sandals, and big red boots that fit too snugly

Hey! Wait! By Golly, I Got It!

I’ll show ‘em the price of living

No, no,

I’ll show what’s in my wallet
