Paid my dues is a song in the show. It is performed by Kazumi Evans and it appears in the episode Work hard, girl.
You can say what you want about me want to do what you want to me But you cannot stop me
I've been knocked down it's a crazytown Even gotta punch in the face in L.A. Ain't nothin' in the world that can keep me from doing what I want to do 'cause I'm too proud, I'm too strong, live by the code that you gotta move on Feeling sorry for yourself ain't got nobody nowhere
So I (held my head high) Knew I (knew I'd survive) Well I made it (I made it) Don't hate it (Don't hate it) That's just the way it goes
I done made it through Stand on my own two I paid my dues yeah Tried to hold me down You can't stop me now I paid my dues
So like I told you You cannot stop me I paid my dues yeah
Now I'm still trusted everyday and people try to mess with Skipper Roberts Gotta another thing comin' 'cause I have a mind and I thought I'd better let you know I'm no punk I can't get down, I don't give a damn about who's around That's worked just fine 'til now
So I (held my head high) Knew I (knew I'd survive) Well I made it (i made it, don't hate it) Woaoaoah That's just the way it goes
Yeah (I done made it through) Oh I'll stand on my own two I paid my dues, yeah Tried to hold me down You can't stop me now I paid my dues
Yeah yeah yeah
Took so long to get me here But I won't live in fear Are you tryin' to steal my shine? First they want to build you up Then they tear you down It's a struggle, tryin' a bubble
So I (held my head high) Knew I... (knew I'd survive) Woah woah woah (I made it, don't hate it)
Said that's just the way..... I said I paid my, I paid my dues Yeah yeah yeah but you can't stop me now I paid my, paid my due.... oh woah woah woah Oh I paid my I paid my dues Yeah But you can't stop me now I paid my dues
