  • "Hello, hello my son, good morning
    I bet you are still sleeping
    I just want to bless you this morning
    May the God of Jehovah bless you
    Guide you but teach you everything you are doing
    May the God lead you, as he lead the Israelite to their promise land
    God will lead you far
    My son, I'm blessing you this morning
    God will lead you far, okay?
    Just put your trust and hope and everything in him
    And he will take care of everything, okay?
    God will bless you, in Jesus name
    Have a pleasant day my lovely son
    God bless you
    Bye"

    Yeah, yo, look

    Your son did good, mum
    Swear down man, your son did good, mum
    Know I used to run around with a budge, mum
    But I promise I was doing what I could, mum
    Now I made a little change, now we're good, mum
    I was saying I'ma gonna get you out the hood, mum
    Take a selfie, show 'em how you look, mum
    Flex on 'em, let 'em know that we're good, mum
    See, back then I was bumping cabs
    South of the Thames, where I come from's mad
    Done some dirt and I ain't too proud that you're living on the road that your son got stabbed
    I had you on the station, your son got nabbed
    Tough luck, just mums no dads
    And we all know growing up in London's mad
    Mummy ain't never seen a hundred bags
    So let 'em all know that my mumzy's glad
    Yeah, I bought mumzy a pad
    Yeah, like mumzy you're bad
    Ghanaian queen, let 'em know that you're back
    'Cause mummy ain't never seen a hundred bags
    Now I'm like "Mum, buy a hundred bags"
    Be right here whenever you need me,
    I need you to know that your son's got your back

    Like, mum I owe you everything
    Can you believe that?
    Everything, I'ma repeat that
    And when I make a song, you give me feedback
    I watched you plant the seed and then you reap that
    Made a little money from cheese, I let you keep that
    Hid drugs but you probably couldn't see that
    Young thug, missing colly like an idiot
    Fucked up saying sorry like I'm three stacks
    Man, I just hope you can play this
    All them times that you worked on a late shift
    Just to see you come short on your payslip
    Always in and out of beef with the bailiffs
    Now I'm on the playlist
    Yeah, where I come from's bad

    Same old shit, just mums, no dads
    And we all know growing up in London's mad
    Mummy ain't never seen a hundred bags
    So let 'em all know that my mumzy's glad
    Yeah, I bought mumzy a pad
    Yeah, like mumzy you're bad
    Ghanaian queen, let 'em know that you're back
    'Cause mummy ain't never seen a hundred bags
    Now I'm like "Mum, buy a hundred bags"
    Be right here whenever you need me,
    I need you to know that your son's got your back
    Look

    Mum, I save it all for you
    Listen to the words I say
    No more broken promises
    I promise this, I'll save it all for you
    Mum, I save it all for you
    Listen to the words I say
    No more broken promises
    No more broken promises, I swear
    No more broken promises, I swear
    No more broken promises, I swear
    No more broken promises, I swear
    No more broken promises

    Mummy ain't never seen a hundred bags
    Now I'm like "Mum, buy a hundred bags"
    Never seen a hundred bags
    Now I'm like "Mum, buy a hundred bags"
    I know you ain't never seen a hundred bags
    Now I'm like "Mum, buy a hundred bags"
    And I'll be right here whenever you need me,
    I need you to know that your son's got your back
