W. Dewgarde - Let's Ride lyrics

[The Last Emperor] Everybody come with me, lets take a ride Turn the system up loud, let it amplify Look around at the town and let the sounds lead you Everywhere I see the remice of a proud people Where little girls find their way in the world through mama And little guys see the world through the eyes of fathers Everybody wanna learn I to earn a dollar We know there's more to the hood than urban squallor Now, I don't need to take up ya time But I just wanted to know what's on ya mind Whether work is hard to find, unemployment line Or got a job or ya blind doin' overtime Don't be ashamed, you got ya pride To maintain, after the rain, the sun will shine There will be better whether for everyone Though we all move to the beat of a different drum Pa**in' the time in a popular way Like Otis Redding sitting at the dock of the bay I got a long way on this road but hey I take pride in the fact that I'm alive today [Hook: The Last Emperor] Everybody on the east side, c'mon, let me know that you got ya pride Everybody on the west side, c'mon, let me know that you got ya pride Everybody on the north side, c'mon y'all, show me you got ya pride And everybody on the south side, c'mon, let me know that you got ya pride [The Last Emperor] Summertime the heat is hot, will I ever reach the top Yo it's time to leave the block, finish my tequila shot Mellow but sober when I'm in the car So I can ride to the rhythm of the guitar I hear the music I'm prepared to follow The body overcomes the city of El Dorado Mexican City that's paved of gold Made sacred by the ancients in days of old Brown pride, they got it down to a science That's right, Old Metz, Aztecs and Rions Combined with colours of a tapestry Yeah I hear my brown brothers hollarin back of me From freedom fighters, to the band deleroes To the old man wearin' the tan sanbrero From the food in the music that's la fiesta To the afternoon nap thats la siesta "Never venture out the hood" is what some people say But I love it to much to ever keep away Beautiful brown people in the streets today Who show me love when I'm drivin' through Easter Lane And they say.. [Hook] [The Last Emperor] They got you to rock to a slower groove I hope you like all the things that I'm showin' you It's all good, every hood that I'm rollin' through Ya might not notice me, but I notice you Livin' your life through poverty, I see smiles for as long as the eye can see I'm proud of y'all and I hope that your proud of me God bless the child who runs wild and free City to city and town to town I can see alot of pride as I drive arouund Hold ya heads up high when ya feelin' down Remember y'all we gotta stand tall and proud [Hook]
