My life got flipped-turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute
Just, please, sit it through
I'll tell you how I became that dude from Waterloo
In mid-west Russia born and raised
On the playground was where I spent most of my days
Chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool
And all shootin some b-ball outside of the school
When a couple of guys who were up to no good
Started making trouble in my neighborhood
I got in a fight and my mom was like "Oh My God"
She said 'You're movin' alone to study abroad'
