featuring Roots Manuva 

[Roots Manuva] 

Yes, yes.. it's about that time 

for the combo combine, yes 

Formin easy tuxedo grooves 

Well.. well.. well well well 

Well well well well! 

You know what? 

We scribble art, herbal verbal, love dip dot 

Audio cartwheels that cart 

We tootin from, holy baggy bone flow ?? 

Man overboard, he put he trust into jazz chord 

Say me? None of them betray me 

Bigger endin pay me, so I 

clench my teeth and said nay 

Thou shalt not cause me loss of my positivity 

Of elastic band who keeps springin back 

Slender kid sings for dumpling 

Jump into the booth with the proof of the pain 

These hand concrete owl, ten hour of sneezing 

Wheezing, coughing up blood 

Now I'm in the mood for peace, space and time 

We sit back, relax, and recool, recline 

.. and we're thinking of .. 

Starlight, in her lucid skies 

in her mu-sic-al, so all sublime 

Yo, yo 

Smack in the middle of the mayhem, we chase no checks 

Thinkin we a hoe, now we hide from debts 

Mr. Landlord, beg you please? Hear this plea 

I'll be back in three weeks with three months in advance 

on some good arty flex kind sir give me a chance 

Blighty new face yes? Make a toast 

to the host of the picnics 

These capital hearty terrifics, some of them keep it real while 

we be keep it cricket, Smythe, Smith 

Peppergrain width, whackin in four fours 

Smackin it for six, armchair critics be yellin out fix 

Even though they know we don't spar with them 

so the score ain't a dream 

Place a bet and be grit, from be lose or win 

It's the same damn ting, just a need for space 

Peace in time, we sit back relax and cool recline 

And we think of.. 

Starlight, starlight, in the distant skies 

Sending me, sending message on starlight 

We's feelin the season, that type of season where it 

sit watchin breeze and, we on the backroad 

in the high ?? cap, where we distress the stress 

Digital funk max modes for protest 

on some ill and gully horseback, whole damn mix tight 

Some of them stay fair yes de mess of dem'll run for they life 

Mamma time tales no lies 

Diggin for treasure when it were right before my eyes 

Dead end streets dem, we keepin men to mice 

Pur-chase telescopes and watch the skies 

Surveryin revealed, all types of healing 

We love to know, so we dance on the ceiling 

She sassy material, as she send nuff waves to my aerial 

Make me nuff, Mueslix for cereal 

And she put me in the mood for space, peace and time 

We sit back relax, and recool recline 

Yes, because of starlight.. yeah yeah yeah 

Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
