  • [Frank Ocean:]
    And He'll bring you out the, out the darkness

    [Frank Ocean:]
    Sweet king Martin, sweet queen Coretta
    Sweet brother Malcolm, sweet queen Betty
    Sweet Mother Mary, sweet father Joseph
    Sweet Jesus, we made it in America
    Sweet baby Jesus (Ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh)
    Oh, sweet baby Jesus, we made it in America
    Sweet baby Jesus (Ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
    Oh, sweet baby Jesus, we made it in America

    [Kanye West:]
    I told my mama I was on the come up
    She said, "You going to school, I'll give you a summer"
    Then she met No I.D. and gave me his number
    Ten years later, she driving a Hummer
    Niggas hustle every day for a beat from Ye
    What I do? Turn around, gave them beats to Jay
    And I'm rapping on the beats they was supposed to buy
    I guess I'm getting high off my own supply
    Downtown, mixing fabrics, tryna find the magic
    Started a little blog just to get some traffic
    Old folks'll tell you not to play in traffic, uh
    A million hits and the web crashes, damn
    South Park had 'em all laughing
    Now all my niggas designing and we all swaggin', uh
    Ignore the critics just to say we did it
    This ain't no fashion show, motherfucker, we live it

    [Frank Ocean:]
    Sweet king Martin, sweet queen Coretta
    Sweet brother Malcolm, sweet queen Betty
    Sweet Mother Mary, sweet father Joseph
    Sweet Jesus, we made it in America
    Sweet baby Jesus (Ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh)
    Oh, sweet baby Jesus, we made it in America
    Sweet baby Jesus (Ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
    Oh, sweet baby Jesus, we made it in America

    [Jay-Z:]
    I pledge allegiance to my Grandma
    For that banana pudding, our piece of Americana
    Our apple pie was supplied through Arm and Hammer
    Straight out the kitchen, shh, don't wake Nana
    Built a republic that still stands
    I'm tryna lead a nation to leave to my little man's
    Or my daughter, so I'm boiling this water
    The scales was lopsided, I'm just restoring order
    Hold up, here comes grandma, what's up Yaya?
    What's that smell? Oh, I'm just boiling some agua
    No papa, bad Santa
    The streets raised me, pardon my bad manners
    I got my liberty chopping grams up
    Street justice, I pray God understand us
    I pledge allegiance to all the scramblers
    This is the Star Spangled Banner

    [Frank Ocean:]
    Sweet king Martin, sweet queen Coretta
    Sweet brother Malcolm, sweet queen Betty
    Sweet Mother Mary, sweet father Joseph
    Sweet Jesus, we made it in America
    Sweet baby Jesus (Ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh)
    Oh, sweet baby Jesus, we made it in America
    Sweet baby Jesus (Ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
    Oh, sweet baby Jesus, we made it in America
    Yes, we did

    [Frank Ocean:]
    Sweet baby Jesus (Ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh)
    Oh, sweet baby Jesus, we made it in America
    Sweet baby Jesus (Ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
    Oh, sweet baby Jesus, we made it in America
    Yes, we did
