Jidenna - A Bulls Tale lyrics

[Intro: Uncle Palmwine] Jidenna, how many times did I call you? You are a stubborn bull, just like your father I don't understand you, o Your Auntie and I warned you not to come during election season But you would not listen Where is my, my palm wine? You know I like to drink palm wine. Yes.... So, all I'm saying is Jidenna, look: The cow that is in the hurry to go to America will come back here as corned beef Do you understand? Shine your eye Although we are brothers, your uncle, you know Magnus Will be the one to make the first move on your life As for the security guards, they were your father's best men They are now yours Keep them close to you at all times But remember: When you are in the village, you are with your family But your family may not be with you [Intro Chorus] Savage are the man and his band of thieves So heavy is the head of he that wears the ring But a lion don't ever lose sleep when it come to sheep And just like wolves on the prowl to eat They act in wool but they speak in peace But I can't hide nor run from the ones who'll come for me Tell ‘em come for me [Verse 1] Bald head, red kufi, and shades They be thinking I got oil money and slaves I'm on the way to put my poppa in his grave In a disguise, riding in a motorcade And I've come to bury him in the jungle It's where we were from so a n***a stayed humble Now don't fumble, don't stumble, don't trip Kidnappers could snatch and ambush your kids I'm on the low I ain't tryna be a martyr It don't help I stand out like a foreigner Nah I ain't a balla But armed robbers think I'm made of top dollars I made a promise When I was six and guerillas ran up on us Taking my sis, beating the sh** out of my mama Shot ​me in the foot put a bullet through my armor I'mma k** ‘em when I see ‘em again So the prince got knights in all black hanging out the side doors AKs on they back shining like swords Pops would say “Once you're bitten by a snake The paranoia make you pop a lizard in the face” [Chorus Instrumental] [Verse 2] The village hear the guns firing A salute and a siren, Chief's arriving I walk by the choir and drummers vibin' The parade so alive you wouldn't think someone died They shoutin' “Our chief is with us” Strangers claim they my cuz They plottin' to take all my land They must forgot who the f** dat I am I greet my uncles with a case of gifts From the thrift, they treat it like Saks Fifth He greet me with a dish I've weighed the risk Paid the cater to switch plates in case it's a hit These muh'f**as wanna poison my soup I wish I could trust ‘em like the boys in blue, but uh... In the villa, never eat what they give ya You're with your fam but your fam may not be wit ya [Chorus Instrumental] [Verse 3] They lower him in the ground I shovel dirt on the mound Darkness falling, I can't stick around No time to grieve, one hour the flight leaves I feel thieves and witches within the trees Hop in a Jeep and on dirt road we speed Someone chasing us, Hummers chasing us A runaway train, I ain't taking no breaks in this Ride muthaf**a! Don't take it slow! Ride mutha-- Ride muthaf**a! Don't take it slow! Ride mutha-- Ride muthaf**a! Don't take it slow! Ride mutha-- Ride muthaf**a! Don't take it slow! Ride mutha--
