Blackalicious - As The World Turns lyrics

rate me

"Now, I thought I would talk about today

For your consideration, as the world turns

As the world turns, you read in all these scriptures

About the world, find out that the world does turn!"

As the world keeps spinning, we live these days

Dollar bill done drove the whole world crazy

While sitting on the porch letting ganja blaze

Never hesitate a moment to enhance my phrase

Since I needed that escape I take my pull

Seen the thugs on the corner trying to act all cool

Pretty much out of character

I look right through, their transparent exterior

You in my book getting written and I'm the derriere

Thought you was peeping me but I was aware of ya

You peep my ill expressions, how I just glare about

Trying to trace my inner world and my whereabouts

Well try on, try on

I'm watching everything that's going down

And it ain't nothing that I ain't been around

The same ghetto but a different town

Weeell, I remember growing up in the P-a-c

It was a whole lot of love in my family

I had clothes on my back and shoes on my feet

Times we didn't have a lot but that was fine with me

In good times and even bad times

Whether rainy, grey sky or the sunshine

Life was so much simpler, I didn't realise it then

But time has definitely made me a wiser man

The world keeps turning round

And time just keeps on moving

Sunday morning in the church just singing a song

Mama gave much praise cause her soul was strong

When I was young I used to do lots of thangs was wrong

I never thought about till one day she was gone

Now my daddy passed on about a year before

Reminiscing as I glance at the fishing pole

But these things gotta happen so we all can grow

And now they spirits much freer than they was befo'

So fly on, fly on, fly on, fly on, fly on, fly on, fly on

Cause there's angels in the midst

And they're guiding and watching me every day

And even though at times I let it get to me

Just a little and I go astray

We keep marching on and on

Young militants will watch and now we're growing

With kids of their own, as it all unfolds

As the world keeps turning on, the world keeps turning on

This one goes out to family, y'all come first

G-A-B, Chief Xcel, Blackalicious, out
