My Power

Album: The Lion King: The Gift (2019)
  • They'll never take my power, my power, my power
    They'll never take my power, my power, my power
    They feel a way, oh wow (buma-bumayaye)
    They feel a way, oh wow (buma-bumayaye)
    They'll never take my power, my power, my power
    They'll never take my power, my power, my power
    They feel a way, oh wow (buma-bumayaye)
    They feel a way, oh wow (buma-bumayaye)

    I was always in the lead
    Where you wanna be, I'm who they wanna be
    B-E-A-U-T-Y, he never seen so much rage from a queen
    Rage from a queen, queen so strong, thought she was a machine
    Girl of your dreams, Sinclair regime
    Turned to the max, can't forget Maxine
    Refer to me as a goddess, I'm tired of being modest
    A hundred degrees, the hottest, if we being honest
    Ebony and ebonics, black people win
    They say we bein' demonic, angel in disguise
    I hate I have to disguise it, why you gotta despise it?
    Rich in the mind, that's why I'm making deposits
    Can't we all empower? It's time to realize it
    (They'll never, ever take my power)

    They'll never take my power, my power, my power
    They'll never take my power, my power, my power
    They feel a way, oh wow
    They feel a way, oh wow
    They'll never take my power, my power, my power
    They'll never take my power, my power, my power
    They feel a way (hold up), oh wow (wow, wow, wow)
    They feel a way (woo), oh wow (wow, wow, wow)

    This that rhythm, this that lightning
    This that burn, this ain't no perm
    This that nappy, this that urb'
    This that kinfolk, this that skinfolk
    This that war, this that bloodline
    On the front line, ready for war, where you gon' run?
    Get loose, get loose, get low, get low
    Why you get loose, get loose, get low, get low
    Oh, gotta protect my braids
    Keep it locked in a safe
    Don't make me get back to my ways
    My power, they'll never take, ah

    They'll never take my power, my power, my power
    They'll never take my power, my power, my power
    They feel a way, oh wow (wow, wow, wow, wow)
    They feel a way (woo), oh wow (wow, wow)

    They'll never take my power, my power, my power
    They'll never take my power, my power, my power
    They feel a way, oh wow (wow, wow)
    They feel a way, oh wow (wow, wow)

    Woza
    Vumani Bo (siyavuma!)
    Selingenile ikumkani
    Ningangabazi amandla am
    Ngizogobisa abanenkani
    Thulani Bo (seng'hleli)
    Selivukile idimoni lami
    Nibabuzile abaziyo ngami
    There will be niks when I'm done
    Jongani Bo (siyabona)
    Ndim' ne-Skeem Sami
    Sizilethile izikhali
    Amagwali awahlangani
    Hlani Bo (ibamb'umthetho)
    Niyayibona inkinga lento
    Sizoyilungisa, themba mina
    Qoqa amaqhawe soyiqeda manje

    They'll never take my power, my power, my power
    They'll never take my power, my power, my power
    They feel a way (ay), oh wow (wow, wow)
    They feel a way (ay), oh wow (wow, wow)
    They'll never take my power, my power, my power
    They'll never take my power, my power, my power (ay)
    They feel a way (ay), oh wow (wow, wow)
    They feel a way (ay), oh wow (wow, wow)

    Woza, they no fit shake am oh
    Lie lie
    You no fit touch am oh (woza, woza)
    I think that means "Let's go," so woza
    Boom, boom, check you later
    I roll with the danger
    Andoyiki, nenja
    Mina ndiyi-Ninja
    Boom, boom, check you later
    I roll with the danger
    Andoyiki, nenja
    Mina ndiyi-Ninja
