  • The glamour boys swear they are a diva
    The glamour boys have it all under control
    Always dancing and always laughing
    The glamour boys are playing the role

    The glamour boys never have no money
    The glamour boys wear the most expensive clothes
    The glamour boys are always at the party
    Where the money comes from heaven only knows

    I ain't no glamour boy - I'M FIERCE
    I ain't no glamour boy - (snap)
    I ain't no glamour boy - I'M FIERCE
    I ain't no glamour boy

    The glamour boys live off their ambition
    The glamour boys have it all figured out
    A very, very dubious position
    When you got no clout

    The glamour boys whole life is a gamble
    They might get over or fall flat on their face
    But if one does, there's no need to worry
    Another G-Boy will take this place

    I ain't no glamour boy - I'M FIERCE

    The glamour boys don't think tomorrow
    The glamour boys just need tonight to play
    But just like things you can't afford on credit
    Time catches up and you have to pay

    The glamour boys are always on the guest list
    You'll always find them in the hottest spots in town
    They'll be your friend if you have fame or fortune
    If you don't they won't be hanging 'round

    I ain't no glamour boy - I'M FIERCE Writer/s: VERNON ALPHONSUS REID
