But without the army, I wouldn't have gotten this job. No schoolin'. Failed the NYPD tests. But the army, they said I was good and got me this job, helluva lot better than some crappy police officer.
If I hadn't fallen back on old ways after the army, she probably wouldn't had left. But I was mad, ya know. NYPD turnin' me down and all. I'm straight now. Not going back down in that direction. I see too many faces from the past being carried off to the morgue workin' this job. Naw I'm not going back.
