Lyrics: 

Reaching for the Stars

Mister Chester Thomas was working in the office when he went downstairs to get some tea
He was pondering his choice when he was love struck by her voice
The first time he heard Cardi B

He said in his confession she soon was his obsession
So he followed her everywhere she'd go
He thought he had it made when he ran onto the stage
When she was a guest on Jimmy Fallon's show

He was tackled to the ground cause you shouldn't mess around
Now he's in prison behind bars
Like the judge said "Keep your hands to yourself
You can't be reaching for the stars"



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Oh! Ha. I was totally surprised with this interpretation. I think this is an original story which takes the hook in a totally unexpected direction. Fun stuff!

Niiiice! lol
Love the take on the prompt. This got a chuckle from me.
Clever writing, too - love the rhymes and rhythm to the lines.
Oy...I'm so out of touch and in my own little world - I don't even really know what Cardi B looks like...and I def haven't heard her music.

If you think a Bronx accent is sexy, you'll love Cardi B

Great humorous take on the prompt. A bit of good advice there too. Nice work.

Lol I actually spat out my tea, dude! I was NOT expecting a Cardi B narrative. Well done take on the prompt, my man.

Chester was an unexpected fan I suppose.

Great take on the prompt, I love it. When people told me to reach for the stars, I said "OK!"

Awesome! Giving a second listen. I like the folk/reggae guitar, and of course the lyrics. I hear the humor in your vocal, too.
I know nothing of Cardi B's music, but she sure is ubiquitous.

Haha! Great job--caught me by surprise. Cardi is definitely "reachable", too, although I'm not wild about her speaking voice. I enjoyed this one a lot!
