Somalia - K'naan

 

Uh

 

Yeah

 

Somalia

 

Yeah

 

I spit it for my block

It's an ode I admit it

Here the city code is lock and load

Any minute is rock 'n' roll

And you rock 'n' roll

And feel your soul leavin'

It's just the wrong dance

That'll leave you not breathin'

I'm not particularly proud of this predicament but

I'm born and bred in this tenement

I'm sentimental what

Plus it's only right to represent my hood and what not

So I'm about to do it in the music

In the movies

Cut to the chase pan across to the face

I'm right there

Freeze frame on the street name

Oops wait a minute

This is where the streets have no name

And the drain of sewage

You can see it in this boy

How the hate is brewin'

'Cause when his tummy tucks in

F**k the pain is fluid

So what difference does it make entertaining

Threw it

Some get high mixing coke and gun powder

Sniffin'

She got a gun but could have been a model or physician

So what you know 'bout the pirates terrorize the ocean

To never know a simple day without a big commotion

It can't be healthy just to live with a such steep emotion

And when I try and sleep

I see coffins closin'

So what you know 'bout the pirates terrorize the ocean

To never know a simple day without a big commotion

 

It can't be healthy just to live with a such steep emotion

And when I try and sleep

I see coffins closin'

Yeah yeah we used to take barbed wire

Mold them around discarded bike tires

Roll 'em down the hill on foot blazin'

Now that was our version of mountain bike racing damn

Do you see why it's amazing

When someone comes out of such a dire situation

And learns the English language

Just to share his observation

Probably get a Grammy without a grammar education

So f**k you school and f**k you immigration

And all of you who thought I wouldn't amount to constipation

And now I'm here without the slightest fear and reservation

They love me in the slums and in the native reservations

The world is a ghetto with ministering deprivation

 

My mommy didn't raise no fool

Did she hot your

I promise

I would get it and remain strictly loyal

'Cause when they get it then

They let it all switch and spoil

But I just illuminated it like kitchen foil

A lot of main stream niggas is yappin' about yappin'

A lot of underground niggas is rappin' about rappin'

I just wanna tell you what's really crackalackan

Before the tears came down this is what happened

 

So what you know 'bout the pirates terrorize the ocean

To never know a simple day without a big commotion

It can't be healthy just to live with a such steep emotion

And when I try and sleep I see coffins closin'

So what you know 'bout the pirates terrorize the ocean

To never know a simple day without a big commotion

It can't be healthy just to live with a such steep emotion

And when I try and sleep

I see coffins closin'

 

Uh

 

Yeah

 

Somalia
