Lyrical criminal

Texte - Extrait du 1er album

I wasn’t born in Orange Street
But i sure like the one – drop
I like skankin’ to the beat
And rankin’ full stop
But then someboy tells me
That we are living in France
And that english singing here
Is a cultural offence

Hou hou
I’m a lyrical criminal

I wasn’t raised in Kingston
And these are not my roots
I may come from Babylone
But i sure do know my toots
Everybody’s a-wailin’
“Il faut chanter en francais,ouais ouais”
Treat me like a traitor
And this is what they say

Hou hou
I’m a lyrical criminal

Just because i was born in Paris
Not in Orange Street
Doesn’t mean i can’t get my kicks
Sinigin’ yeahs on the runsteady beat
All you judges and jury
Who are tryin’ to put me on trial
For verbal robbery
And cultural high betrayal (you say)

Hou hou
I’m a lyrical criminal

Now we don’t fit their quotas
And we may not get an airplay
But we’re gonna keep on skankin’
As long as the runsteady play

Hou hou
I’m a lyrical criminal

Ad lib
