Jovanotti – Una Scintilla Lyrics

[Testo di "Una scintilla"]

Come partire e attraversare
Un tratto di mare piuttosto breve
Che divide l'Africa dal nord
Come una specie di arcobaleno
Come una pentola d'oro
Una linea di sangue
La promessa di un piatto pieno
O di quello che c'è dentro
Per lo meno

Come lasciare un'impronta di mano
Sulla polvere di un pianoforte
Che nessuno ha suonato mai
Strade bianche strade torte
Per raggiungere il mercato
Comprare pezzi di vecchi razzi
Costruirci un'astronave
Per volare sopra ai palazzi

Come quando nella notte
Guardi il nero della mia pupilla
Vedi accendersi una scintilla
Vedi accendersi una scintilla
Come quando nella notte
Guardo il nero della tua pupilla
Vedo accendersi una scintilla
Una scintilla

Perché io sono l'animale
E tu sei l'uomo col fucile
E per quanto tu ti sforzi
Non avrai mai il mio stile
Perché io vivo nel passaggio
Come la flora dell'intestino
E frequento le cose possibili
Tra il parabrezza e il moscerino
Come quando la gente balla
Diventa benzina sui pistoni
E si fonde con il ritmo
Come aria nei polmoni
Come lasciarsi alle spalle il rimpianto
Di quello che poteva essere e non è stato
Non ho occhi dietro alle testa
E nemmeno di lato

Come quando nella notte

Guardi il nero della mia pupilla
Vedi accendersi una scintilla
Vedi accendersi una scintilla
Come quando nella notte
Guardo il nero della tua pupilla
Vedo accendersi una scintilla
Una scintilla

Uno due pronti partire
Il primo passo poi proseguire
Non puoi tenere un drago al guinzaglio
Tempo che scappa non puoi domarlo
Luci di città che vedi
Dietro alla linea dell'orizzonte
Terra dove far battere in piedi
Occhi di femmina in mezzo alla gente
Come un approdo un sogno una via
So che significa quell'energia
Di una scintilla che incendio diventa
Fonde i metalli e le anime inventa
Pronte a tutto
Mani che suonano in jam
Nasce la musica
Sempre più big sempre più bang
Sempre più cruda sempre più glam
Sempre più post sempre più lost
Sempre più sud sempre più west coast
Le terre incognite
Le danze cosmiche
La spazzatura è sempre un'ottima risorsa
Il pane e anche le rose
La vita e anche la borsa
Ballerò sul tempo pari
Schivando gli spari
Cantami o musa delle sabbia mobili
Che inghiottiranno tutti gli spioni
E chi si crede di avere ragione
Solo perché qualcuno gli dà ragione
Questa cosa che non molla e cresce
Come erba in uno spartitraffico
Si fa largo e ti stupisce
Riesce a ballare anche sul lastrico

Egypt confirms coronavirus case, the first in Africa

The 1st case of the Novel Coronavirus in Africa has been detected in Egypt. Experts and African leaders have expressed concern about the virus expanding in the Africa continent. The virus could do much damage in the least developed countries with weaker health systems. The W.H.O has hurried to prepare African health systems. Many of these systems are overburdened or lack diagnostic tests.

The 1st death of the coronavirus disease in Europe has occurred in France.

Jesse Jagz – Nigerian Gangster Lyrics

[Intro – {Mr. Wallace & Min. Farrakhan}]
{Mr. Wallace: You go to Nigeria, which is, if not the most corrupt nation in Africa and it is, it could be the most corrupt nation in the world, Minister Farrakhan

Min. Farrakhan: Oh now, Mr Wallace ..

Mr. Wallace: It is the most corrupt nation that I have ever covered, I have been there 25 years ago and I’ve been there as recently as last year.}

[Verse 1]
He walks into the spot
See us pimping every stops, Cranberry and ciroc
Shots chilling on them rocks
He listens for the cops, he can hear the ticking of the clocks
Its a tale of a chicken and a fox
Hands still shaking from the Shotgun
Each and every stops, intuition on top
Kitchen is at locks, still listen if anybody knocks
Vision never stops how he never listen to his Pops
But now, he wishing he was ready for the mission
He was too young to listen
Guns gone missing
He on the Television, from New York to Briston
One hell of a mission, even on the intermission
Now, give it up for that Nigerian Gangster
You move too fast, they might blast ya
Streets is after, Police they might catch ya
It’s a fact, the next man be your actor
Too hard to capture, back-door contractor
Cruise in a Mazda, chased by the LASTMA
Pace getting faster, plate say Alaska
Registration is a fake from Madagascar
Ungrateful .. He unfaithful
Do anything he paid to
When everybody hates you
It’s a wonder how he make-do
They too late to underrate you
I’m talking M, talking Ice, talking Wizzy
Too hot for TV, believe me is easy
I’m talking Jazzy .. I’m talking Banky
I’m talking Nigerian swag, I’m talking Swanky
Now, eff you, this is the chapter
The Captain and Master, Nigerian Gangster
Can’t see me, all you hear is my laughter
Gold is what I’m after, silver and alabaster
I’mma bastard, I’mma goon, I’mma Pastor
See I’m a real G, I’mma actor
Contractor, we move bricks like a tractor
I’mma singer, producer and I’m a rapper
I’m talking VEC, I’m talking Phyno
I’m talking Olamide, I’m talking Gino
I’m talking English, I’m talking Nigerian Lingo
I ain’t fvckin’ around, baby girl, I’m talking Mandingo

[Bridge]
Uhn, Let it bounce, let it breathe
Eh, I’m talking real shady business, uh
Too hot for TV, Believe me
Motherfvcker, pimping ain’t easy

[Verse 2]
Here’s to the dream, to the green-white-green
All hail the machine, and pray to the queen, yea
Urh! From Saudi Arabia to Greece, peace
I pray, let your favour increase
And chains on our feet, slaves from the east
Stay for the feast and make way for the beast
Mary Jane that I keeps, is AK for the streets
I’mma lay in my sheets, everyday plenty weeks
It’s murder, O.J. when I creeps
Dre on the beats, it’s okay for the Fruits
I hustle in my dreams, no play when I sleep
Monday to Sunday, I need more days of the week
Now, here’s still the dream, I’m awake when I sleep
I ache in my feet and I’mma take, I’mma keep, urhn!
Now tell me, are you fake or you deep?
Are you great, are you weak, are you ape, or you sheep? yea
Uh! Now, get ready for the beast, uh
The whole earth gon’ shake when I speaks, whoo!
There’s a earth-quake in my sheets
The earth bakes from the snakes and the creeps
Heard, they was waiting for Jacob’s defeat, yea
I heard it was a major retreat at bay on my bay just to age in your fleet
For, I am made stronger he was made to be weak
I came to scorch him, I tamed the scorpion
Million thanks to Compton, Spain to Austin
Ukraine to Boston, God damn I’m awesome
My flow smoother than Johnson’s and Johnson
Now, here’s to the Captain and the Master
To e-very Nigerian Gangster
As love gets colder, light shine all over
It’s a story of a Soldier, five stars on my shoulder
Born in a vision, a extra celestial life form is living in the foetal position
Mama always told me, said life is a mission
But it’s my decision, I was too young to listen
I read what was written, surely it was forbidden
For loving in its religion, it came down in the form of a dove and a pigeon
See, I’m in a prison, conscripted in the system
I rose to the division, oh fvck it

[Outro]
“Shout out to all the Nigerian Gangsters worldwide
That’s what it is”

{Farrakhan: Fine! So what? 35 years old, that’s what that nation is; now, here is America 226 years old, you love Democracy? But there in Africa, you trynna force these people into a system of government that you just have accepted 30 years ago; black folk got the right to vote ..
You’re not in any moral position to tell anybody how corrupt there are. You should be quiet, and let those of us who know our people, go there and help them get out of that condition, but America should keep her mouth shut where ever there’s a corrupt regime as much hell as America has raised on the earth.}

Drakeo The Ruler – Bambino Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Sheesh, they like Drakeo we love your lingo
Ten chains on, still sittin’ in front of Deebo
Tuck for who? you better duck, I shoot
I ain’t really with that talkin’ none’, dodgin’ nuns, ugh
You know my lifestyle
Forty with shanaynay for niggas who think they fight wild
Pull up to his block at midnight and let the lights out
Executed Krusty in public, I never liked clowns
Sideshow Bob, pipe down, don’t you know the mic on?
The Ruler, the Ruler, Mr. Maison
Freddy versus Jason, the f**k you niggas sayin’?
You see blood everywhere, that’s just the battle of the Maisons
Who me? who me? no me don’t do no playin’
Bambino the massacre, niggas be with that actin’ shit
One move, blastin’ him, long range from Africa
Send suicide bombers in your house if you keep yappin’ it

[Chorus]
Lingo bingo, we know, we know
My hit man named Bambino
Lingo bingo, we know, we know
My hit man named Bambino, now get this shit done (shit)
He gon’ get this shit done (shit nigga)

[Verse 2]
Cold devil, shit I might just be heaven sent
Shoot you and your kids and the messenger, I’m tellin’ you
Don’t go against the word, you’ll get hung, it’s embarassing
My hit man treacherous, the plug on the medicine
Professional stoner, just know this nigga is on it
Had to Wesson my opponents, niggas is organ donors
I’m handsome, stones from the mansion
Eighty to the face, that’s for ransom, we taxed him
The 2 Greedy bastards, the new wave savages
Niggas crazy bruh like I been had racks and shit
Been had crashed the whip, been had masked and shit
Hangin’ out the window like that bitch sing opera
Niggas be talkin’ money but never ain’t coppin’ shit
Bands on a feature ’cause they know that I be poppin’ it
He wanna be popular, I’m worried ’bout coppin’ shit
Pops on my knots and shit, ayy Drakeo you droppin’ this? shit

[Chorus]
Lingo bingo, we know, we know
My hit man named Bambino
Lingo bingo, we know, we know
My hit man named Bambino, now get this shit done (shit)
He gon’ get this shit done (shit nigga)

Eat it like lasagna

Bello Figo – Faccio Soldi Non Faccio Sbagli Lyrics

[Intro]
A-A-A-AHMYADYAFYAKYA
Tutti sanno che non faccio sbagli
Ooh, aah

[Bridge]
Sedici anni, ho mollato la scuola
Non puoi insegnarmi nessuna strada
Eri a casa a dormire, ero in giro a rubare con gli amici
Nah, non mi servono tuoi consigli

[Ritornello]
Faccio soldi, non faccio sbagli
Faccio soldi, non faccio sbagli
Faccio soldi, non faccio sbagli
Non mi servono tuoi consigli, ah
Ehi, faccio soldi, non faccio sbagli
Faccio soldi, non faccio sbagli, ehi
Faccio soldi, non faccio sbagli
Non mi servono tuoi consigli, ah

[Strofa]
Mille euro per le scarpe, quelle sono Gucci
[?], per i miei occhiali
Scappo dal plug, non gli do i suoi soldi
Fra, cerca di fregarmi ma non sono nato ieri
Ehi, la scuola mi trasformava in bravo ragazzo
Hanno provato e riprovato ma sono troppo negro, ehi
Tatuaggi sul mio corpo come inchiostro su un foglio
Troppi dolori quindi c’ho tatuaggi anche sotto l’occhio
In Italia senza mentore, ora sono una leggenda
Figa bianca, bel viso, viene con la testa
Eravamo in Africa, ti rubavo la borsa
E mai fatto male, stai attento perché non è finita
Se vuoi scopare scopiamo, smetti di girare attorno perché non ho tempo
Tutte le mie fighe sono state scopate al primo appuntamento
Maglia doppia G e l’ho messa solo due volte
Sai, tratto queste marche come se fossero niente, ah

[Bridge]
Sedici anni, ho mollato la scuola
Non puoi insegnarmi nessuna strada
Eri a casa a dormire, ero in giro a rubare con gli amici
Nah, non mi servono i tuoi consigli

[Ritornello]
Faccio soldi, non faccio sbagli
Faccio soldi, non faccio sbagli, ehi, ah
Faccio soldi, non faccio sbagli
Non mi servono i tuoi consigli

Jidenna – Worth the Weight Lyrics

Play this song

[Intro]
People, confusion going on
Why don’t we just learn how to live with one another?
It’s not really impossible, why do we have to make it so hard?
With so much pollution and erasion, why? Why?
If we can learn how to live with one another, then we can learn who is going to take the weight?
Wait, I think that you’ll find it
Wait, wait, I think that you’ll find it
Wait, wait, I think that you’ll find it

[Verse 1]
Yeah, yeah
I go for the record, I don’t just go for the medals, bro
Niggas used to know that we stronger than the devil, bro
Since I buried Papa in the village with the shovel, bro
Every move is bold, ain’t no time for bein’ subtle, bro
In the face of evil, I can find the needle, haystack
Could have freed my people if this weed was legal way back
Popo spun the wheel on misfortune, but I ain’t play that
They come round and pat-pat-pat us down but I ain’t say jack
I escaped the trap, I escaped the cubicles, bro
I escaped the drive by’s, drop the funerals, bro
And I beat the case, and I beat the chase, woah woah
Can I keep the pace? Can I keep the pace ? I’on know
I escaped them tryna bleach a nigga’s brain
Coulda went to Wall Street, instead I built up my own lane
Rather have a street in my own name
Or money with my face on it like I’m Prince Arcane

[Refrain]
You not gon’ see me frowning in these days and times, you see, the days of the Oyinbo man are numbered like football Jerseys
We all know that all of our suffering and smiling has been worth the wait!

[Verse 2]
My nigga, who knew?
Who knew that that boy from Enugu with the booboo on his knee (Knee)
Back then was actin’ like a poodle on a leash (Leash)
One day he’d have to learn the juju on the streets (Streets)
Starin’ at death, like, is your shooters gonna squeeze? (Squeeze)
Freeze, please
As a little boy slanging chains back in Chinatown
Thinkin’ to myself, I’ma build a block at [?] town wit’ my, wit’ my, wealth
And I pray that I’m the brightest sound that you ever felt
I’ma take a million flights around, ’til that shit is felt
That’s that lead the way, ayy
That’s no piece of cake, ayy
That’s that troll online that live inside the tree all day, ayy
That’s that he so gay, ayy
That’s that she so fake, ayy
That’s that insecure, ayy
That’s that Issa Rae, ayy
Hey
You do you, me do me
So long as you don’t fuss wit’ we (We, baby)

[Outro]
I believe it’s time for an African peoples powered highway. A highway that will connect the Diaspora and Motherland. A global highway for African people all over the world to rediscover themselves. To remember that the only thing that unites black people, globally, the only thing we all have in common is that we are from Africa

Poppy – Fashion After All Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I’m working every angle
My lipstick is a staple
My hair and makeup makes you envious and want to die
I’m worthy to some money
I’m saving every penny
I’m in Japan and Africa and I don’t need a guy
My wrists are terrorists
My lips gave you a kiss
My consciousness thinks this is making me feel fabulous

[Pre-Chorus]
Do what I want
Say what I want
Wear what I want
Talk how I want
Walk how I want
Do what I want
Wear what I want

[Chorus]
It’s fashion after all
It’s fashion after all
It’s fashion after all
It’s fashion after all
Fashion after all

[Verse 2]
Give me a second to think
Give me something cold to drink
Give me a reason I should listen to another word
I’m revolutionary
A little bold and scary
I’m making plans to save the world and I don’t need your help
I’m on another level
There’s nothing I can’t handle
I’m watching you watch me the way the devil watches angels

[Pre-Chorus]
Do what I want
Say what I want
Wear what I want
Talk how I want
Walk how I want
Do what I want
Wear what I want

[Chorus]
It’s fashion after all
It’s fashion after all
It’s fashion after all
It’s fashion after all
Fashion after all
(It’s fashion after all
Fashion after all
It’s fashion after all
It’s fashion after all)

Jahmiel Kicks Off US Tour Ahead Of Europe and Africa

Wrapping up 2017 with a growing catalog, Jahmiel delivered a solid body of work, which resulted in him being billed for some upcoming major festivals in Europe and Africa where he will perform for the first time.

Jahmiel, who is currently getting ready for his first U.S. tour, Strongest Soldier, is set to hit 15 cities over a 3-week time frame. The trek will take Jahmiel across some major US cities including Arizona, Kansas City, Oakland, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Raleigh and Charlotte just to name a few. At the end of the US leg he will have little down time before he packs his bags and heads to Africa for the first time in his career. He has a highly anticipated performance at The Independence Stadium in Bakau, Gambia.

The trip to Gambia, will also give Jahmiel an opportunity to partake in some charitable work as well as connect with some of the youths who his songs has resonate with.

“Definitely pleased at the direction my career is going and the ability to show growth over the past two years. Going to Gambia is definitely something I have been looking forward to since we received the call last year and looking forward to delivering and greeting my fans” Jahmiel told Dancehall HipHop.

On January 13th Jahmiel will perform on the 25th anniversary of Rebel Salute, a show he says that he is looking forward to performing on since this will be the first time he is returning to the annual event since Mavado first introduced him a few years ago. The “Heaven” singer has had a phenomenal year last year with a slew of hits and some well received performances on some big shows. This year, he is certainly looking to repeat that success and broaden his international appeal. Stay tuned for more tour dates to be announced by his team later this month.

Toto – Africa

I hear the drums echoing tonight
But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation
She’s coming in 12:30 flight
The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation
I stopped an old man along the way,
Hoping to find some old forgotten words or ancient melodies
He turned to me as if to say, Hurry boy, It’s waiting there for you

[CHORUS]
It’s gonna take a lot to take me away from you
There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never have

The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what’s right
As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti
I seek to cure what’s deep inside, frightened of this thing that I’ve become

[CHORUS]
It’s gonna take a lot to take me away from you
There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never have

(Instrumental break)

Hurry boy, she’s waiting there for you

It’s gonna take a lot to take me away from you
There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa, I bless the rains down in Africa
I bless the rains down in Africa, I bless the rains down in Africa
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never have

Thundercat – Walk On By (feat. Kendrick Lamar) (Drunk Album)

[Chorus: Thundercat]
At the end of it all
No one wants to drink alone
Baby that’s how it goes
Don’t walk away from me

[Verse 1: Thundercat]
Fragmented memories
Sentences incomplete
That’s when she said
"Don’t wanna put up a fight anymore
I’m down to the end of my rope
And I’m freefalling
I’ll search inside myself
I need to know why I act this way"
I whispered tunes to her scream
I can’t ignore it no more

[Chorus: Thundercat]
At the end of it all
No one wants to drink alone
Baby that’s how it goes

[Verse 2: Kendrick Lamar]
From my eyewitness binoculars
To Argentina and Africa
We mastered the pressure
Hazardous, harassing us
You laugh at us
More accurate at bagging dimes, now we bagging rhymes
Bodybags, price tags on your fo’head
Nine times out of ten, young niggas are nine or ten
When the line becomes thin: be a killer or fireman
Fill up the lavish pen if I needed to right my wrongs
I can’t deny sin, condolences through these palms
I remember when your cousin was coming home
My bitch, why we plotted to kill him ’cause we ain’t know him
Unfamiliar faces make niggas nervous
Convicted court cases might hit the surface
Restricted territories might come through lurkin’
We ain’t want none of that urgent call
Well, I’ma act Turk and fall on my identity, Percocets
For all the headaches, I’m ’bout to bring confetti
Tumble out this barrel soon as it ring, you ready?
That was the word ‘for we moved on ’em
Treat him like Joe the Plumber
I wonder if someone come and can see this tool on him
Immature and retarded is what you call me
Yo’ cousin wa’n’t comin’ home from the pen but from the army
If I can right my wrongs and pen this verse I read
Even though a bullet hit him in the leg, still walk on by

[Chorus: Thundercat]
At the end of it all
No one wants to drink alone
Baby that’s how it goes
Don’t walk away from me

Big Sean – Inspire Me Lyrics

[Hook]
You do the right thing, you know you inspire me
You do the right thing, you know you inspire me
Can’t go wrong (this one’s for you, you, you)
You do the right thing, you know you inspire me (you, you, you)

[Verse 1]
You tried to keep me away from temptation
Introduced me to The Temptations
Marvin Gaye and Isley Brothers
Dancing so hard the living room shaking
Yeah we dance in the house
My mama’s the man of the house
Mama you too good for them men
Even dad, you too good for him
Mama you know you inspire me
You deserve early retirement
You text me, tell me to take my vitamins
When I got a new love you invite ’em in
When we break up, you don’t like ’em then (no)
Loyal, loyal, swear you super loyal
Worth more to me than striking oil
You deserve the life I’m tryna show ya
I remember all of the sacrifices
Growing up in debt, but never hungry
Rich in everything except money
That’s that faith that you can’t buy
But I buy that new crib, you look right in it
I buy that new car in the color that you like it in
And play my song every single time you drive in it
That’s ’cause you inspired it (yeah)

[Hook]
You do the right thing, you know you inspire me
You do the right thing, you know you inspire me
Can’t go wrong, wrong, wrong
You do the right thing, you know you inspire me

[Verse 2]
I know it’s hard to get me on the line
I’m busy like every other time
Since I got a house in that other town
You wonder when I’ma come around
I know you worry about me
I give you attitude like, “Don’t worry ’bout it”
Don’t hit ya up like I don’t care about you
But I hold you down, I swear I got you
I know I got problems communicating
I probably should’ve went to school
And got that degree in communications
I should be with you on vacation
I should take you where you should be taken
Asia, Africa, Dubai, anything you want, I do buy
Just want you to know I do try
To take care of ya, mama you the one, you the one
You the moon, you the stars, you the sun
I’m so happy I’m your son
I’m so happy I’m your son
You love me since day one
Since before day one
So before the day’s done
I gotta, gotta let you know

[Hook]
You do the right thing, you know you inspire me
You do the right thing, you know you inspire me
Can’t go wrong, wrong, wrong
You do the right thing, you know you inspire me

[Outro]
Look, mama, you know you inspire me
If I ever made you not feel like it, then this is my apology
So sorry, look, dear mama you know your son shine for ya
I’m Sean for ya, my lady
Don’t you ever let ’em talk to you crazy
Anything for the fam, how you raise me
I’m yo baby but you still my baby
Ayy

Never fall down yet, don’t digress
Put us against any test
Yeah, no stress, aright

Get up and pray and get the money afterwards (church)

And, she’ll do it for a half a nut
She ain’t take it to the reap

Leon Russell – Dixie Lullaby

Gather round me people, got a song to sing
About that sweet magnolia thyme
The black eyed Susan made some catfish stew
And papa brought some homemade wine

Now, all the southern children like to rock ‘n’ roll
The TV mamas tell you why
They got it on the boat from Africa
It’s that Dixie lullaby

And blind Willie Time, he had a dime shoe shine
Stand down on Beale Street
And Willie would stop and say "Hello"
To all the shoes he’d meet

"Why are you so happy?" said the clean white buck
"You got no reason to be happy Mr. Time"
But Willie just smiled and he dropped his rag
And sang a Dixie lullaby

Now you heard the story of my southern home
With a honeysuckle wine
Anytime you think that you might come yourself
You ought to keep this thought in mind

All you easy riders better watch your step
If you’re walkin’ down below the line
That Louisiana man is gonna get you, yet
With his Dixie lullaby

He’s got a Dixie lullaby
Ohh, it’s a Dixie lullaby, bye

Horrible Histories – British Things lyrics

[Intro]
I love to be a British queen
I am Victoria, you see
Now where’s my British butler
With my British cup of tea?
Tea is not from Britain, ma’am
From India it was brought
Yes, for your cuppa, thousands died
And many wars were fought

[Chorus]
British things, my British things
It seems that tea is not
British things, my British things
Can I sweeten it a jot?

[Verse 1]
Do tell me sugar’s British though
No, it’s Caribbean imported
For sugar in your cup of tea
Slavery’s been supported
I know it’s wrong, your majesty
But slaves in Africa
Worked hard in fields of sugar cane
To sweeten up your char

[Chorus]
British things, ah British things
I thought that there were many
British things, ah British things

Afraid there’s hardly any

[Verse 2]
You know your British cotton vest
What’s wrong with it?
Explain!
The cotton’s from America
And picked by… slaves again!

[Verse 3]
Your empire’s built on fighting wars
That’s how your income’s swollen
Your British things are from abroad
And most are frankly stolen

[Hook]
Whatever next? Go on! Pray tell!
Our British queen is foreign as well?

[Verse 4]
It’s true, I am of foreign descent
And your husband, Albert? A German gent!
At least I’ve got a British name
Victoria’s Latin… that’s a shame!

[Chorus]
British things, ah British things
There are no, we declare
All our favourite British things
Seem to come from elsewhere!

Z-Ro – New Shit letras

[Hook]
If you don’t like my new shit you can go back to my old shit
Matter fact y’all haters ain’t gotta jam none of my shit
Y’all haters can eat my whole dick
I don’t do this for y’all
Gotta get this money, gotta get this money mayne
Gotta get this money, gotta get this money mayne
Gotta get this money, gotta get this money mayne
Gotta get this money, gotta get this money mayne

[Verse 1]
Listen, if you were struggling, back in ’97 when I started this
And your ass still struggling in 2016, you hustle is garbage bitch
I can’t stay in the same old place, I gotta keep on movin’
And since the music keep on playing I gotta keep on groovin’
That’s why I keep on winning and these bitch niggas keep on losing
And FYI I’ve been single since 97, that’s why I keep on doin’
They keep on killin’ me but I keep on livin’, that’s what I keep on doing
It’s me against the world like 2Pac Shakur
So anybody can get it, give them 2 shots or more
[?] if you ever wonder why I didn’t ever come around
Cause your moma be like fuck you, nigga we don’t ever want you to come around
And Paris I found out ’bout you when you were damn near grown
I promise these baby momas these days ain’t worth the flesh that they are printed on

[Hook]
If you don’t like my new shit you can go back to my old shit
Matter fact y’all haters ain’t gotta jam none of my shit
Y’all haters can eat my whole dick
I don’t do this for y’all
Gotta get this money, gotta get this money mayne
Gotta get this money, gotta get this money mayne
Gotta get this money, gotta get this money mayne
Gotta get this money, gotta get this money mayne

[Verse 2]
You can say what you want about me, I don’t mind
Cause I’m a diamond homie, I’ll be damned if I don’t shine
40000 people holdin’ my legs, I’m still gon’ climb
And even though they got their own homie, they still want mine
I heard Z-Ro ain’t this and Z-Ro ain’t that
Z-Ro ain’t havin’ no money and Z-Ro can’t rap
Z-Ro don’t give a damn ‘long as he roll make stacks
His credit card ain’t got a color, how the fuck you love that?
Foreign cars that’s all I’m ridin’
I hear you haters talkin’ funny, that’s why I be smiling, cheese
If money come in two’s then haters come in three’s
But without them there’s no me
I love my haters

[Hook]
If you don’t like my new shit you can go back to my old shit
Matter fact y’all haters ain’t gotta jam none of my shit
Y’all haters can eat my whole dick
I don’t do this for y’all
Gotta get this money, gotta get this money mayne
Gotta get this money, gotta get this money mayne
Gotta get this money, gotta get this money mayne
Gotta get this money, gotta get this money mayne

[Verse 3]
Grown men gossiping ’bout other grown men
Ain’t that what bitches do? Then y’all niggas ain’t grown men
I hate to say it but I got niggas on my team that be watching my pocket
They don’t put in the work like I put in the work
But they want what I got in my pocket
Y’all can keep on talkin’ cause y’all just talkin’ and that’s a damn shame
Nobody know y’all in home
But I’ll do Africa, they know my damn name
Takin’ over this world with real nigga music, that’s my plan mane
Players do what we wanna do and y’all haters do what y’all can mane

[Hook]
If you don’t like my new shit you can go back to my old shit
Matter fact y’all haters ain’t gotta jam none of my shit
Y’all haters can eat my whole dick
I don’t do this for y’all
Gotta get this money, gotta get this money mayne
Gotta get this money, gotta get this money mayne
Gotta get this money, gotta get this money mayne
Gotta get this money, gotta get this money mayne

Lecrae & Leon Bridges – On My Own (The Birth Of A Nation The Inspired By Album) letras

[Hook: Leon Bridges]
I’ve come a long way
From a very hard place
It’s been a hard race
But somehow I found my way home
I’ve walked a long road
To where only God knows
But when the trumpet blows you know
I did it all on my own

[Post-Hook]
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Ohhhhhh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Ohhhhhh
[Verse 1: Lecrae]
I’ve been pushing hard
I’ve been praying harder
Only Heaven can help me
They took my earthly father
Martyred and promised me death then walked me into my grave
I’d rather die a free man then live on Earth a slave
I’m fighting for people they put in chains
They stripped our heritage, they took our names
Put our women to shame
Whipped us and beat us, mislead us but they can’t take our passion
Take my body but my soul won’t fit inside your casket

[Bridge: Leon Bridges]
Forget what I said, forget what I did
I did what I had to do and I’d do it all again
And if you’re going through hell
Keep it going, my baby promise that Heaven is near

[Hook: Leon Bridges]
I’ve come a long way
From a very hard place
It’s been a hard race
But somehow I found my way home
I’ve walked a long road
To where only God knows
But when the trumpet blows you know
I did it all on my own

[Post-Hook]
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Ohhhhhh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Ohhhhhh

[Verse 2: Lecrae]
Taken from Africa
Treated like animals
Culturally denigrated
Broke up our families
Prison of false religion, the same God you lied on
The same God I rely on, I’ma strive on
Alone just a small tribe
Fought for truth for y’all, died
Martyrs live forever so
Out the depths we all rise
Die for a freedom that I’ll never see
I pray y’all live it to the fullest for my legacy
Let’s go

[Bridge: Leon Bridges]
Forget what I said, forget what I did
I did what I had to do and I’d do it all again
And if you’re going through hell
Keep it going, my baby promise that Heaven is near

[Hook: Leon Bridges]
I’ve come a long way

[Outro]
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Ohhhhhh
I did it all on my own
Oh-oh-oh-oh

I did it all on my own

Jain – Come lyrics

[Jain]
(Black burn, I feel so alone)
Without you boy
Now I’m here
Hanging out in the street
Thinking about reactions over actions
Walking on the sky of my dreams

Come, come, my baby come
I will show you the world
Come, come, my baby come
I will cover your nightmares
Come, come, my baby come
I will love you forever
Come, come, my baby come
I will not let you go

My love, I just feel so lost
Without you boy
I am yours even if time has passed
Take me away
From this impetuous world
Leaving this jail of my mind

Come, come, my baby come
I will show you the world
Come, come, my baby come
I will cover your nightmares
Come, come, my baby come
I will love you forever
Come, come, my baby come
I will not let you go

My soul, my soul is in Africa, with you boy

Come, come, my baby come
I will show you the world
Come, come, my baby come
I will cover your nightmares
Come, come, my baby come
I will love you forever
Come, come, my baby come
I will not let you go

My soul, is in Africa with you boy
Looking at the stars
On this diamond sky
Giving you my heart
So you can keep it on your mind
Floating on your blazing eyes

Come, come, my baby come
I will show you the world
Come, come, my baby come
I will cover your nightmares
Come, come, my baby come
I will love you forever
Come, come, my baby come
I will not let you go
