Take A Minute

歌詞

Chorus

And any man who knows a thing knows he knows not a damn damn thing at all

And everytime I felt the hurt and I felt the givin' gettin' me up off the wall

I'm just gonna take a minute and let it ride

I'm just gonna take a minute and let it breeze

I'm just gonna take a minute and let it ride

I'm just gonna take a minute and let it breeze

How did Mandela get the will to surpass the everyday

When injustice had him caged and trapped in every way

How did Ghandi ever withstand the hunger strikes and all

Didn't do it to gain power or money if I recall

It's to give; I guess I'll pass it on

Mother thinks it'll lift the stress of babylon

Mother knows my mother she suffered blows

I don't know how we survived such violent episodes

I was so worried and hurt to see you bleed

But as soon as you came out the hospital you gave me sweets

Yeah they try to take you from me

But you still only gave 'em some prayers and sympathy

Dear mama you helped me write this by showing me to give is priceless

Chorus

And any man who knows a thing knows he knows not a damn damn thing at all

And everytime I felt the hurt and I felt the givin' gettin' me up off the wall

I'm just gonna take a minute and let it ride

I'm just gonna take a minute and let it breeze

I'm just gonna take a minute and let it ride

I'm just gonna take a minute and let it breeze

All I can say is the worst is over now

We can serve the hard times divorce is over now

They try to keep us out but they doors is open now

My ni**a Akon is gettin awards for covers now

This is K'NAAN and still reppin' the IS ( )

Comin' out of Mogadishu and still draped in the mess

And no matter how we strong homie

It ain't easy comin out of where we from homie

And that's the reason why I could never play for me

Tell 'em the truth is what my dead homies told me

Oh yeah I take inspiration from the most heinous of situations

Creating medication out my own tripulations

Dear Africa you helped me write this by showing me to give is priceless

Chorus

And any man who knows a thing knows he knows not a damn damn thing at all

And everytime I felt the hurt and I felt the givin' gettin' me up off the wall

I'm just gonna take a minute and let it ride

I'm just gonna take a minute and let it breeze

I'm just gonna take a minute and let it ride

I'm just gonna take a minute and let it breeze

 

Nothing is perfect man that's what the world is

All I know is

I'm enjoying today

 

You know 'cause it isn't everybody that you get to give

Chorus

And any man who knows a thing knows he knows not a damn damn thing at all

And everytime I felt the hurt and I felt the givin' gettin' me up off the wall

I'm just gonna take a minute and let it ride

I'm just gonna take a minute and let it breeze

I'm just gonna take a minute and let it ride

I'm just gonna take a minute and let it breeze

Yeah yeah yeah x 8

I'm just gonna take a minute and let it ride

I'm just gonna take a minute and let it breeze

I'm just gonna take a minute and let it ride

I'm just gonna take a minute and let it breeze
