So Thankful Lyrics

So Thankful - Nahko and Medicine for the People

Written by:Nahko

 

Papa didn't die in vain

His son carries on his name

 

His face his fire his flame

The way he talked the way he sang

Mans still feels the pain

She will not live in vain

Of how where babies came

 

Who the hole to blame now

She says

Oo so thankful oo so thankful

Oo so thankful oo so thankful

Grandma used to cut herself raw

 

Not the hardest thing little mama's eyes saw

Said drunk Indians fighting cops

Trafficking little girls around the block

I said when the R**e gonna stop

 

Any time soon baby that's real talk say

Oo so thankful oo so thankful

Oo so thankful oo so thankful

Mama never said it's okay

 

This old man to touch her this way

Grandma well she got paid

 

And that's one thing I'm not proud to say

I never thought I'd give thanks for rape

But that's how I got here today

Said oo so thankful oo so thankful

Oo so thankful oo so thankful

Got to give got to give got to give

I got to give my mama a little kiss yeah

Got to give got to give

 

I got to give my mama a little kiss yeah

Got to give got to give

 

I got to give my mama a little kiss yeah

Got to give got to give

I got to give my mama a little kiss one

 

Papa got shot in the head

 

He got what was coming to him now he's dead

Child molester 36 years old

Left four kids and a wife in the cold

Great grandfather got shot in the back

Protecting Filipinos

From the corporate attack

And great grandmother

Shot herself in the mouth

She was ready to go

And I could hear her shout

She says

Oo so thankful oo so thankful

Oo so thankful oo so thankful

Got to give got to give got to give

 

I got to give my papa a little kiss yeah

Got to give got to give

 

I got to give my papa a little kiss yeah

Got to give got to give

 

I got to give my papa a little kiss yeah

Got to give got to give

 

I got to give my papa a little kiss one

 

The papa that raised me died of cancer

I was holding his hand

As his spirit surrendered

Put a roof over my head

Food in my belly

He was a king and a father to many

The mother that raised me

Is truly a queen

Taught me how to love God

And follow my dreams

Said oo so grateful oo so grateful

Oo so grateful oo so grateful

Coyote came and spoke to me he said

Get used to your destiny

Coyote came and spoke to me he said

Get used to your destiny

Every moment is a mystery to me

Getting pretty good at listening

Every moment is a mystery to me

Getting pretty good at honoring

Every moment is a mystery to me

Getting pretty good at listening

Every moment is a mystery to me

Getting pretty good at honoring

Getting pretty good at listening

 

Getting pretty good at honoring

Getting pretty good at listening

Getting pretty good at honoring

Got to give got to give got to give

 

I got to give my mama a little kiss yeah

Got to give got to give

 

I got to give my mama a little kiss yeah

Got to give got to give

 

I got to give my papa a little kiss yeah

Got to give got to give

 

I got to give my papa a little kiss one
