  • One time I took a swim in the Nile
    I swam the whole way, I didn't turn around, man, I swear
    It made me relax when I came down
    I felt liberated like free birds, I'm stimulated now
    Plunging away 'less my body's on top
    All of these currents might cost me my life right now
    Where danger finds me, it follows with tides
    Many miles ahead of me, still I'm in stride, she said

    Hey little buddy, where you goin'?
    I'm not sure of how to know I'm still motion
    You seem regular, I seem regular
    These streams may take me out to the ocean

    Told myself if I dive in it without precaution of a life jacket
    Then I'll dive in it 'til I'm exhausted and I'm type lacking
    Waistline on four deep, senses on forty
    Feel like there's four of me

    One time I took a swim in the Nile (one time I took in a swim in the Nile)
    I swam the whole way, I didn't turn around, man, I swear (I swear)
    It made me relax when I came down (when I came down)
    I felt liberated like free birds, I'm stimulated now (stimulated)
    Plunging away 'less my body's on top (stimulated, stimulated now)
    All of these currents might cost me my life right now (right now, right now)
    Where danger finds me, it follows with tides (follows with tides)
    Many miles ahead of me, still I'm in stride
    That's some good

    Got the Nile runnin' through my body
    Look at my natural, I'm so exotic
    Darker the berry, sweeter the fruit
    Deeper the wounded, deeper the roots
    Nubian doused in brown, I'm lounging in it
    I tend the youth, I said I'm drowning in it

    I'm in denial, deep in denial
    I'm in the Nile, deep in denial

    That's some good Writer/s: Beyonce Knowles Carter, Brittany Coney, Denisia Andrews, Hykeem Carter, Keanu Torres, Kendrick Lamar, Mark Anthony Spears
