Asheru - I Am Hip Hop lyrics

And you sing Paris city And you sing New York City Jazz Liberatorz... With the live motivator Check it out, y'all Yeah From the five to the mind The mind to the hand The hand to the pen Will stick to fly paper But never quite land My last destination From bus, train, to plane To radio station I occupy minds That's my occupation My childhood A baptism, indoctrination All the way through to my high education Reward for my patience I'm lovin' my callin' Callin' my loved ones from extra long distance Across many seas I wish y'all were here, the things that we'd see The witness I bear, as light as hot air But since you're not here I lay a foundation that brings me back With you, reward for your patience You can say I'm workin' on a vacation You could say (You could say) You could say (You could say) You could say (You could say) And you could sing New York City You could sing (You should sing) You could say, matter of fact You can say I'm workin' on a vacation You could say (You could say) You could say (You could say) You could say (You could say) (Right Now) You could say and be true right now (right here) You should say (You could say) (No, you ain't) You could say (You could say) (Here you are) You can say I'm workin' on your vacation As time flies by, the calendar changes Months, days, and years Add-ons, Re-arrangements There's so much divine That ain't nothing sacred We can't turn the clock back So why try and fake it? I grow with the movement But still I stand and retrace the steps We call walkin' round I look forward to a vintage Spit over jazz riffs and choose Ancient strings over synthage The mood the beat brings Pull at your heart strings So, for now, I choose words that won't harm ya Disarm ya Slid off the armor Let your mind ponder On things that calm ya Then, let it wander Way past beyond the Stress that your life brings Things that fustrate ya Gettin' all worked up Battlin' and Debatin' Shut up and take a vacation You could say (You could say) You could say (You should say) You could say (You might say) You could say (As they say) You could say (And they say Paris City) Won't you say? You can say I'm workin' on a vacation You could say (You could say) You could say (You could say) From Harlem (Jay Live) (And be true) Jazz Liberatorz You could say (Outta Paris) You can say I'm workin' on a vacation Back to the grime Nose to the grindstone Back to the wall, ear to the ground Feet to the pedal To pedal this tracks To this time, I'll choose one to help me relax From this lips to God's ears (and then He grows) From a boy to a man and then he goes It might be flows Like father, like son Whatever He does As long as something gets done That's civilized, righteous, and shines like one From star to star, It's just space and time And his actions won't be in place of mine You see, wisdom is personal Like every verse from the curse to the j**el Whether it's rehearsed or I'm just breakin' food And the mic is a tool To break and rewrite the rules From my first day to my last night And with my lights out And my weapons through You can rest a**ured that I'll be rest a**ured That the best of my works Have worked And laid a foundation Now, that's a vacation You could say (You could say) You could say (You could say) You could say (You could say) And you could sing New York City You could sing (You should sing) You could say, matter of fact You can say I'm workin' on a vacation You could say (You could say) You could say (You could say) You could say (You could say) (Right Now) You could say and be true right now (right here) You should say (You could say) (Jay Live) You could say (You could say) You can say I'm workin' on your vacation Thank you for this special gift you've given me Listen to my words and my melody I hope I can return the same thing Listen to my, Listen to my melody My melody My melody My melody Listen to my melody My melody My melody My melody, oh, oh
