Middle class kid from a mainly white neighbourhood
Listening to hip-hop a lot starting to make it up
From whatever age he was it was his greatest love
So because he dint fit in he should have gave it up?
No but he looks ridiculous
A privileged kid from Bingley in his living room scribbling stuff
Page after page of "cat, hat, simple, pimple"
Made this individual considerably less miserable
So that's a good reason to keep doing it
But music has this way of making you need approval of it
And soon as it's a private hobby to jot bars
You're on an open mic being fluid as hot tar
Died on your arse, so? Let's do it again
Meet another guy that raps now that's you and a friend
And two heads are better than one, you work together for some-
-time, once dumb rhymes see sunshine you're stepping 'em up
Cos steel sharpens steel and before you know it
You're putting out some record you think is so sick
And in years it won't be, it's a piece of your past
You either feel nostalgic, or treat it as crap
But that's by the by cos a white kid that liked to write
Has now got a trade he's trying to ply
So that's from there to here, and before I end this chapter
I'm still embarrassed to ever call myself a rapper
From New York
Made by the less fortunate
To West Yorks
No-one knows where Yorkshire is
From New York
Still feel I was born for it
To West Yorks
No less of an awkward thing
From New York
Made by the less fortunate
To West Yorks
No-one cares where Yorkshire is
From New York
Still feel I was born for it
To West Yorks
No less of an awkward thing
I still cringe when people rap on telly
Outside of the right context, rap's so silly
The good thing about rap is everyone can have a go
The bad thing about rap is everyone can have a go
And I was so infatuated, the 90s was great I was captivated
The rappers were animated, tracks were the greatest
And growing up it was there for everyone to see
For God's sake the Fugees were number one for weeks
But then I met 80s heads who hated 90s rap
It's always after that 93ish time in fact
And mine was pretty much, when 50 Cent did In Da Club
Paved way for your Little Wayne's and I couldn't give a f
But everyone's got their poison and everyone's got their reasons
For sticking with the artform they love and they believe in
There's enough obstacles in life
Without finding something that you like
And stopping cos you doing it doesn't look right
S'not what you look like when you're doing what you're doing
S'what you're doing when you're doing what you look like you're doing
Charles Wright I'll keep doing this until I'm an old age
Yorkshire hip-hop that evolved from those with the gold chains
From New York
Made by the less fortunate
To West Yorks
No-one knows where Yorkshire is
From New York
Still feel I was born for it
To West Yorks
No less of an awkward thing
From New York
Made by the less fortunate
To West Yorks
No-one cares where Yorkshire is
From New York
Still feel I was born for it
To West Yorks
No less of an awkward thing
From New York
To West Yorks
From New York
To West Yorks
From New York
Made by the less fortunate
To West Yorks
No-one cares where Yorkshire is
From New York
Still feel I was born for it
To West Yorks
No less of an awkward thing
