Oddisee – Like Really (The Iceberg Album)

[Verse One]
Why you want to catch my eye, when you already know that I’m taken (nah like really)
How you past due on payments, and I’m seeing you on vacation (nah like really)
How you gonna make us great, when we were never really that amazing (nah like really)
Take it back to what, I don’t find hanging black lives entertaining (nah like really)
How do you police the streets of a neighborhood you do not engage in (nah like really)
Why a brother get three for a sack while your brother go free for a raping (nah like really)
How you make a film about Egypt with all leading roles caucasian (nah like really)
How you saying all lives matter when the stats say we are not adjacent (nah like really)
Tell me if I got it all wrong, like I signed on the line but I didn’t read the form
And the fine print is all about the times we mourn, and the color of my skin means I gotta be strong
And your hand me down faith said if I was reborn, when I take my last breath that you’ll let me breathe on
And as of right now we could never be pals, so how are we supposed to get along (nah like really)
This now more than ever though, all about force and measure though (nah like really)
Why am I forced to let it go, and clean your messes though (nah like really)
You take jobs to Mexico, pay us less and lesser though (nah like really)
Promised to bring them back, and that problem gets the vote (nah like really)

[Hook]
Really (repeated)

[Verse Two]
I be on the grind all day, I don’t pay mind to the date (nah like really)
Missed call vibrate, I find most times it could wait (nah like really)
I don’t talk blue in the face, just to make movement in place (nah like really)
Out of breath watching other man steps and you wonder why you’re losing the race (nah like really)
I was sleeping on floors, making bread instead of bed on tour man (nah like really)
If you ain’t never cry about a loss, don’t speak about the situation you’re in (nah like really)
I ain’t got a big deal but I’m still a big deal and I feel important (nah like really)
Yeah you got a big deal running on a big wheel I ain’t with extorting (nah like)
Yeah I’m independent and I’m making hella noise, and I’ll never let a woman make a Helen out of Troy
Got no suckers in the circle that pretend to be boys, I don’t lend them an extension I just send them decoys
Chilling in the cut is when I’m really feeling voids, ’cause the movements getting muted and it really needs a voice
We’re just picking between the evils of the lethals and the liars
People tired and they really need a voice (nah like really)
This now more than ever though, all about force and measure though (nah like really)
This that calm collected flow, done right, wrong correctional (nah like really)
Enough about peace and blessings bro I want that deeper message though (nah like really)
If you on top that surface, drop that lesson though, preach (nah like really)

[Hook]
Really (repeated)

Mobile Hotspots – End Of The World Update lyrics

Dumb people, smart phones
Civil wars and no-fly zone
Hidden spies, flying drones
Experiments with mutant clones
Additives that break hormones
Two sit on the papal throne

Next – What’s Next?
What’s your – Best Bet?

Health care, doctor’s office
Super bugs like staphylococcus
Legal thugs in congress caucus
Arguments that somehow lost us
Opposing sides yet both will cost us
Late night votes for laws that cross us

Arab Spring, Somali pirates
Terror bombs and Noro virus
Secret Wars become desirous
Egypt torn just like papyrus
Donald Trump is going to fire us
No leaders left to inspire us

Crowder – Prove It (feat. KB) (Lyric Video)

[Intro: Crowder]
Kick ‘er off Wichita
Haha

[Verse 1: Crowder]
There is calm then there is storm
There is peace then there is war
There is love then we are torn, oh Lord
There’s a void then there’s a song
There’s a death then we are born
There is blood then we are home, oh Lord

[Chorus: Crowder]
If you’re free, prove it
If you’re free, prove it
If you’re not, lose the chains on your soul
Come, freedom

[Verse 2: Crowder]
There are slaves and there are kings
All are bound ’til they are free
All misplaced then they believe, oh Lord

[Chorus: Crowder]
If you’re free, prove it
If you’re not, lose the chains on your soul
Come, freedom

[Verse 3: KB]
K to the…
If freedom is free as they say it is
Where we go where they displayin’ it?
We wanna start where the chains end
Is the promised land up for the taken?
No one is free on them slave ships
Only a slave would enslave men
Egypt is still in our nature
It changes faces, face it, who liberates them?
I’mma need more then they payin’ me
I don’t need money, I need a key
I’mma need eagle wing liberty
Free indeed, hidden deep is a plea
I rather die than be steeped beneath tyranny
Just like I got it, I give it like oh
Grace to the nations, no hatin’, you know
We integrated, we be interracial
You lovin’ your neighbors then go let ’em know

[Chorus: Crowder]
If you’re free, prove it
If you’re free, prove it
If you’re not, loose the chains on your soul
Come, freedom

Horrible Histories – I’m A Greek (Parts I And II) lyrics

[Verse 1]
You know the caveman gave us woad
Roman soldiers built the road
Egypt’s pyramids were buildings at their peak

[Verse 2]
But when we talk of great invention
It’s important that we mention
A special race who really were unique

[Verse 3]
Plato and Pythagoras
Both of them did stagger us
Socrates, he showed such great technique

[Verse 4]
Was there ever, ever, ever
Such a bunch of chaps so clever?
If you want to know the answer, ask a Greek!

[Chorus]
I’m a Greek, I’m a Greek
We are all so magnifique
We invented sundials, catapaults and bricks
Chic and sleek, so to speak
Our success was not a freak
But working hard was how we got our kicks

[Verse 5]
We created the first siren
And the first soldering iron
The Olympics, well… That was quite a busy week

[Verse 6]
So the next time that you go-go
To the toyshop for a yo-yo
Let them know-know it was thought of by a Greek!

[Chorus]
We are Greek, we are Greek
Nowadays you’d call us geek
But in ancient times, people thought of us as tough
Our physique was not weak
‘Cause when people gave us cheek
We invented boxing, and other violent stuff!

[Verse 7]
Fiery flamethrowers for battles
Pinhole cameras, baby rattles
‘Is there nothing they can’t do? ‘ I hear you shriek

[Verse 8]
So next time you take a shower
Or you see a lighthouse tower
Just remember they were thought of by a Greek!

[Verse 9]
Stage acoustics, ancient harps
Music sounds of flats and sharps
Central heating at your doorsteps
Splints, syringes, lamps and forceps
Fire extinguishers, thermometers
Coin dispensers and odometers
Pontoon bridges, pistons, pulleys
Parchment, prisms, puppets, dollies

[Verse 10]
Shock absorbers, charts and maps
We were oh, such brainy chaps!
Anchors, chewing gum, the list does never cease
Spinning tops, the dice, the crane
Do we have to ask again?
Did they come from Spain?
No, they came from Greece!

Horrible Histories – Cleopatra lyrics

[Intro]
Ra, ra, Cleopatra!
Famous beauty coming at ya!
Ra ra, patra Cleo!
Guys all go gaga for me-o!

[Verse 1]
I am a leader
And a lady and a queen
I’m Cleopatra
Such a queen, never been seen
I am a pharoah
Yet they’re-o meant to be guys
But I don’t care-o
I just wear-o beard disguise

[Verse 2]
My mum and dad were pharoahs
I thought my rule’s due
But both my older sisters
Thought that they should rule too

[Verse 3]
Oh dear, they both died!
I wonder who that would leave
Little me-o, pharoah Cleo?
Okay, no time to grieve!

[Verse 4]
Think that’s alarming, you’d be right
But it gets worse
Married my half brother
And we ruled the universe

[Verse 6]
That bad romance
Led to an overcrowded throne
But then he died, boo-hoo
So now I rule alone

[Chorus]
Wah, wah, wah, wah, wah
All hail lady Cleo!
Wah, wah, wah, la, la
Coolest pharoah by far!

[Verse 7]
Fashion topped my list of vices
Bathed in asses’ milk and spices
Then I dressed like goddess Isis
Long, black hair in ringlets nicest
Viper’s tooth for men entices
Finest linen robe, top prices!

[Verse 8]
Married another brother
He’s an okay geezer
But never told
Of my love for Julius Caesar

[Verse 9]
Had Caesar’s child and hoped
That he’d be crowned king
My bro said no, I said ‘Oh! ‘
And I murdered him

[Chorus]
‘Cause I am Cleopatra
Egypt’s royalty
The ruling pharoah, don’t you dare-o
Mess with me!

[Verse 10]
My pokerface smiles
Only when I see
A man who takes my fancy like
Oh! Mark Antony!

[Chorus]
Wah, wah, wah, wah, wah
Another Roman leader
Wah, wah, wah, la, la
No Egyptian crowd pleaser

[Chorus]
Ra, ra, Cleopatra!
Finally, I’d met my matcher!
Ra, ra, patra Cleo!
Ends in death for him and me-o!

[Outro]
My life was a drama
I was one kooky mama!
Wah, wah, wah, you know
Today I’d be a favourite of the
Paparazzo!

Isa Muhammad – Chemtrails & Muslim Wars Remix (feat. Rick Ross & Talib Kweli) (Priorities 5 Album) letras

[Intro: Isa Muhammad]
I come from a time where it is about like bars nigga, where it’s about like lyrics nigga, where it’s about like saying some shit nigga, some deep shit nigga, some shit about black people my nigga. You shit about, you know, some some some esoteric spiritual type shit, some shit that goes into the essence of what it just means to just be black and just popping in America, you feel me? Like. Isa Muhammad nigga

[Verse 1: Isa Muhammad]
Incarceration, genocide, they kill you if you criticize
They got your name and number nigga, intelligence centralized
The homie Paper just got shot, I pray he make it through the night
I know some niggas did some time, had to fly a couple kites
I roll around my fucking city feeling like I’m Michael Knight
And Jesus Christ, you need a fight, Norris Cole is colder than the snow
I always get the shot to go, I got the baddest bitch for sho’
Bout to get out 10 or fo’, and he come from coldest coast
Lyrics caught the Holy Ghost, I travel ’round on golden spokes
Naenae done hit them folkes, it’s a [?] if you did not know
Palestine and the occupation, evidently, but you can’t taste it
I’m in the booth on vacation, I feel like Wayne, it’s a dedication
Outer space on the reservation, [?] it’s an assassination
The shit I spit come from dark spaces like dark matter meets Darth Vader
And elevated and meditated till you levitated
Dronestrikes at your frontdoor, Inglewood forever more
Chemtrails and Muslim wars

[Chorus: Isa Muhammad]
And I ain’t trippin ’bout no bitches
Nah, said I’d rather put the city on, nigga
It’s Inglewood forever, look
Like chemtrails and Muslim wars
And I ain’t trippin ’bout no bitches bro
Nah, uhuh, said I’d rather put the city on
Word, it’s Inglewood forevermore
Uh, like chemtrails and Muslim wars

[Verse 2: Rick Ross]
I’m the Charles Dickens for these young niggas
Pray these scriptures pay my daughter tuition, it’s my vision
Ask me what I wanna be, and I said I’m a poet
Survive a drive-by got me feeling heroic
AK47’s for the shock and awe
Made a fortune, and no more smoking in those parking lots
Your men see you through a different lens
Ain’t no love cause they killing even wives and friends
Scholarships to school, they wanna know my race
Took a trip to Egypt, then I chose my faith
Field niggas would never suffer from sunburns
One word, you still a nigga, take this whole verse
Innercity niggas living by the Gotti rules
To be on house arrest he made a lotta moves
I’m prepaid for my next rhymes
I’ll let these niggas shine maybe next time

[Chorus: Isa Muhammad]
Your men see you through a different lens
Ain’t no love cause they killing even wives and friends
Scholarships to school, they wanna know my race
Took a trip to Egypt, then I chose my faith
Field niggas would never suffer from sunburn
One word, you still a nigga, take this whole verse
Innercity niggas living by the Gotti rules
To be on house arrest, he made a lot of moves
I’m prepaid for my next rhymes
I’ll let these niggas shine maybe next time

[Verse 3: Talib Kweli]
You received my gift, like a present, so my presence is a charity
The difference is it’s clear, but I focus on similarities
We in the trenches for our lives, these my soldiers in solidarity
Your intelligence artificial, that’s why you’re filled with singularity
Got that advice from my pops, it’s a staple
Like a plate of rice never, not religion, but a way of life
Pick your battle, save your fights
A wise man can play the fool, behave or pay the price
Respectability is cool, but that don’t keep me safe at night
This is why I’m still evolve ’cause these policies’ll kill us all
Nah they can’t kill us all, that’s why they wanna build a wall
But they don’t steal and they don’t rape and still get all
Like they don’t deal in raw, like they don’t kill at all
I’m a New Yorker, I saw the builings fall, they came because we built it first
The bricks are falling I say, and [?], that’s like the illest verse
So for me to trust, you gotta get the fuck up out your feelings first
Now watch you go from “Feel the Bern” to built up with the Bildergbergs
What the fuck is feelings worth

[Chorus: Isa Muhammad]
And I ain’t trippin ’bout no bitches
Nah, said I’d rather put the city on, nigga
It’s Inglewood forever, look
Like chemtrails and Muslim wars
And I ain’t trippin ’bout no bitches bro
Nah, uhuh, said I’d rather put the city on
Word, it’s Inglewood forevermore
Uh, like chemtrails and Muslim wars

Tim Rice – Potiphar (Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat) lyrics

Narrator:
Joseph was taken to Egypt in chains
And sold
Where he was bought by a captain named Potiphar

Potiphar had very few cares.
He was one of Egypts millionaires.
Having made a fortune buying shares
In pyramids.
Potiphar had made a huge pile.
Owned a large percentage of the Nile.
Meant that he could really live in style
And he did.

Joseph was an uniportant
Slave who found he liked his master,
Consequently worked much harder,
Even with devotion.
Potiphar could see that Joseph
Was a cut above the average
Made him leader of the household,
Maximum promotion.

Potiphar was cool and so fine,
But his wife would never tow the line.
It’s all there in chapter thirty-nine of
Genesis.
She was beautiful but evil.
Saw a lot of men against his will.
He would have to tell her
That she still was his.

Joseph’s looks and handsome figure
Had attracted her attention
Ev’ry morning she would beckon
“Come and lie with me, love.”
Joseph wanted to resist her
‘Till one day she proved too eager.
Joseph cried in vain,
“Please stop! I don’t believe in free love!”

Potiphar was counting shekels
In his den below the bedroom
When he heard a mighty rumpus
Clattering above him.
Suddenly he knew his riches
Couldn’t buy him what he wanted
Gold would never make him happy
If she didn’t love him.

Letting out a mighty roar,
Potiphar burst through the door:
Joseph, I’ll see you rot in jail.
The thing you have done are beyond the pale.

Poor, poor Joseph, locked up in a cell.
Things aren’t going well, hey,
Locked up in a cell.

Poor poor joseph
Locked up in a cell
Things aren’t going well, hey,
Locked up in a cell

Locked up
In a cell

Tim Rice – Poor Poor Joseph (Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat) lyrics

Narrator
Next day, far from home
The brothers planned the repulsive crime
Brothers
Let us grab him now
Do him in, while we’ve got the time
Narrator
This they did and made the most of it
Tore his coat and flung him in a pit
Brothers
Let us leave him here
All alone and he’s bound to die
Narrator
Then some Ishmaelites
A hairy crew came riding by
In a flash the brothers changed their plan
Brothers
We need cash. Let’s sell him if we can
Narrator, Female Ensemble & Children
Poor, poor Joseph, what’cha gonna do?
Things look bad for you, hey, what’cha gonna do?
Poor, poor Joseph, what’cha gonna do?
Things look bad for you, hey, what’cha gonna do?
Brothers
Could you use a slave
You hairy bunch of Ishmaelites
Young, strong, well-behaved
Going cheap, and he reads and writes
Narrator
In a trice the dirty deal was done
Silver coins for Jacob’s favorite son
Then the Ishmaelites
Galloped off with the slave in tow
Off to Egypt where
Joseph was not keen to go
It wouldn’t be a picnic he could tell
Joseph
And I don’t speak Egyptian very well
Narrator
Joseph’s brothers tore
His precious multi-colored coat
Having ripped it up
They next attacked a passing goat
Soon the wretched creature was no more
They dipped his coat in blood and guts and gore
Narrator, Ensemble & Children
Oh now brothers, how low can you stoop?
You make a sordid group, hey, how low can you stoop?
Poor, poor Joseph, sold to be a slave
Situation’s grave, hey, sold to be a slave
Sold to be a slave
