The Gospel Lyrics

The Gospel (福音) - Alicia Keys (艾莉西亚·凯斯)

Written by:Alicia Keys

So we all got children products of the ghetto

Momma cooked us soup daddy did the yelling

Uncle was a drunk cousin was a felon

When he got pitched he told them he wasn't tellin'

Auntie was a cook her husband was a crook

Cause every job he had they be payin' him off the books

Ghetto university knowledge is all it took

In a tenement I was listenin' to the hook

Change gon' come the spirit of sam cook

When the feds comin' everybody get shook

Now we doin' life like eddie murphy and martin

On the chain gang I was singing into the coffin

The roaches and the rats h****n and the cracks

Couldn't blame me I'm just giving the facts

Tryna hit the top the bottom ain't where it's at

Everybody got a past but you can never go back

Oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh

Sing

Yeah yeah yeah yeah sing

Yeah yeah yeah yeah sing

Yeah yeah yeah yeah sing

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Tellin' you like it is how we ever gon' live

If we ain't gettin' money how we feedin' the kids

It's a revolving door where brothers be doin' bids

I know it sound wrong but the door will be what it is

Survival of the fittest this poor girl the illest

 

Broke parents and black cats give me heebie geebies

Life seems hard but nothin' ever comes easy

Whatever's in the dark can always become the light

If you ain't in a battle how you gon' win the fight

Gotta speak the truth when I'm up in the booth

The streets be flyin' birds but they don't be on the roof

Poverty is a pain like you pullin' a tooth

Told the streets don't let me go like I'm bishop in juice

The roaches and the rats h****n and the cracks

Couldn't blame me I'm just giving the facts

Tryna hit the top the bottom ain't where it's at

Everybody got a past but you can never go back

Oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh

Sing

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Sing

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Gotta sing

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

She's a king

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

 

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

 

And they sing new york city

 

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

 

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

 

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

 

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

 

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

 

Yeah yeah yeah yeah
