Old Rock n Roll

Album: White Men Are Black Men Too (2015)
  • For fuck's sake

    We living life like a bubble wrapped ape
    She came to mind when I treble that bass
    I'm tired of playing the good black
    I said I'm tired of playing the good black
    I'm tired of having to hold back
    I'm tired of wearing this hallmark for some evils that happened way back
    I'm tired of blaming the white man
    His indiscretion don't betray him
    A black man can play him
    Some white men are black men too
    Niggah to them
    A gentleman to you

    Some white men are black men too

    Niggah, Ohwae Owhae
    Awake

    Watch your body
    Wash itself
    Baptise baby
    I bath in blood
    Dare be told
    I seldom do surrender
    God forsaking no good do-good-er It's all out
    Out in the open
    Looking for the wild one
    Boy I'm fragile
    Choke on bones while choking stone
    You knock me or your miss me
    Or you miss me

    Niggah, Ohwae Owhae
    Awake

    Old rock n roll
    Not what you've been sold
    Congo square is open for business
    I was there as god is my witness
    There you fucking go
    (So there you fucking go) Writer/s: ALLOYSIOUS MASSAQUOI, GRAHAM HASTINGS, KAYUS BANKOLE, TIMOTHY BRINKHURST
