Land of Promise
Yes The promise land Going to the promise land Yes the promise land Oh gosh now, through the promise land Imagine Ghana like California with Sunset Boulevard Johannesburg would be Miami Somalia like New York With the most pretty light The nuffest pretty car Ever New Year the African Times Square lock-off Imagine Lagos like Las Vegas The ballers dem a ball Angola like Atlanta A pure plane take off Bush Gardens inna Mali Chicago inna Chad Magic Kingdom inna Egypt Philadelphia in Sudan The Congo like Colorado Fort Knox inna Gabon People living in Morocco like the state of Oregon Algeria warmer than Arizona bring your sun lotion Early morning class of Yoga on the beach in Senegal Ethiopia the capital of fi di Congression A deh so I belong A deh di The King come from I can see us all in limos Jaguars and B'mos Riding on the King's Highway To the promise land Going to the promise land Oh gosh the promise land Yeah through the promise land Promised Land I picture Porsche's Basquiat Portraits Pinky Rings realistic princesses Heiresses bunch a Kings and Queens Plus I picture fortunes for kids out in Port-Au-Prince Powerless they not allowed to fit But not about to slip Vision Promised Land with fashion like Madison Ave Manhattan Saks 5th Ave and Rodeo Relaxing popping labels Promise land no fables This where the truth's told Use them two holes Above your nose To see the proof yo! Imagine a contraption that could take us back when The world was run by black men Back to the future Anything can happen If these are the last days And hundred-foot waves come crashing down I get some hash and pounds Pass around the bud then watch the flood Can't stop apocalypse My synopsis is catastrophic If satellites is causing earthquakes Will we survive it Honestly man it's the sign of the times And the times at hand There's a lot of work to be done, oh gosh In the promised land Talking 'bout promise land Oh gosh get me to the promise land The promise land oh the promise land The promise land There's plenty of land for you and I By and by Lost of food, to share for everyone Cause that was civilization in the promise land Answer to the promise land The promise land Going to the promise land There's a lot of work to be done, In the promise land
