Young black king, don't die on me You're my brother, you're my keeper I need you to keep an eye on me And no more fighting on the streets Walking 'round with all this pride on me Shit, shit's tough for us already Know that you can still rely on me Please, just stay alive for me And my young black queens, don't quit now (Yeah) You're the only ones that got us I could never let my sis down You been too strong, for too long Yet, still you never sit down, wow That's the power of your loving And it's worthy of a king's crown And still you never let your kings down Even though most times, we don't deserve it The picture isn't pretty, but it's perfect Tedious pressures, so then I curve it Serena or Venus, the way I serve it I'm Mallory Blackman, the way I sell books I jump on the stage, and then the world looks All that banging' on my door, had my girl shook Now sorry officer, I only sell hooks Leave me alone Every little L I took, I hold it close to home Live and you learn, they'll always hate me for my tone For the shade of my skin And not the courage of my bones Now, I'm misunderstood Now, I'm feeling like Nina Simone The way I toured the world Would have thought that I was Sims See her on stage, I know that women can be kings I know that's fucked, they're overlooking what you bring I know shit's all good, but it's just the little things Black queen you're immaculate It's coming at the world They ain't ready for your magic yet And that was never your fault Man, I guess they couldn't hack it, yeah World domination, and you ain't even Taken off your jacket yet So effortlessly fabulous And my young black kings I hope It pays off Go and show 'em what you're made of Trying to scare us with some things That we are no longer afraid of Men are superheroes, let me see you take off I pray you never take your cape off Even though most times, we don't fly straight If I trust you bro, I promise we gon' die great Our burdens are heavy, but we ain't light weights Our parents were legends, they had to migrate So that's a reason not to sit around and chat shit I'm from the place where Michael Dapaah made a smash hit Where you can be a rapper, if rap you sick They're screaming, "What a flippin' time to be a black Brit!" We so alive, whole world gone out they're minds But no we ride, tried to push us all to the side We know our rights Now we get the whole of the pie, then go inside When you see that Merky flag in the sky Just know it's I The way I topped the charts Who would've thought that I was Dave I am young, black, beautiful and brave Know that it's fucked, they're overlooking what we gave I know shits all good, so we pray for better days Pray they better than before (Better than before) Young black king, you are everything and more (You are everything and more) I know one song's not enough to settle scores (Not enough to settle scores) But from the bottom of my heart Man, I hope you're getting yours (Getting yours) Man, I hope you're getting yours (Getting yours) Young black queen, get your shine on All I see is innovators, and a bag of icons You can go and ask the whole world Where they got they style from? That's you, that's us, God's time And he never gets the time wrong I guess we just some ticking time bombs We soon blow, (Boom) I can make world come true All my dreams will see me through And if that won't get me down My dreams will turn things all around With a smile upon my face I can see a better place Doesn't matter what may come my way Believe me now, I will win some day
