Veteran (Intro) by Marques Houston
My name is Marques...Barrett...Houston.
My mommy's name is Carrolyn and my daddy's name is Michael.
And my brother's name is Brandon and my sister is Danyelle.
I like Michael Jackson and Eddie Murphy.
And sometimes my grandmother Bebe comes over and she going to put me in a movie and we going to be rich.
Even when I was 2 I knew I'd be something.
I thank God because without him none of this would be.
When I was 8 I was on my "Worst Behavior."
By the time I was 12 "Playtime Was Over."
When I was 14 I told the world "We Got It."
And at 16 I took you on my "Journey."
At 18 I introduced you to "IMX."
And at 20 IMX came to an end.
But then again every end has a new beginning.
At 21 that beginning gave birth to "MH."
At 23 MH got "Naked."
After millions of albums sold, hundreds of magazine covers,
3 years in a row making ya'll "Scream", 7 seasons of television,
And the number 1 movie that made the whole world wanna dance.
From the beginning to now,
I survived the rumors, the negativity, the drama, the break ups, the make ups,
The confusion between me and people about me saying shit on the radio I never said.
I inspired the new generation of music.
So, now at 25 I think it is safe to say: That I Marques Houston am a "Veteran."
