Letter To The King by Game  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Letter To The King **Fades in**
[Intro: Sample of The Jaggerz]
Way up high [6X]
Saw it all

[The Game]
Second floor of my hotel
I'm rollin' up, 'Bout to blaze
And zone out to this Frankie Beverly and Maze
As our days about to pass and them days in the past
He set my mind free so my mind free at last
So much that I don't even drink from a fuckin' glass
I'd rather find the first fountain I can and do it fast
Didn't understand a dream of a king, Now do the math
Coincidentally, on your birthday's, I ditched the class
Cause the younger me, Dumber me was chasin' the cash
Chasin' the ass, low life with his face in the grass
Ridin home from school, In front of the bus
Not even thinking bout how Rosa Parks done it for us
How she stayed behind bars and she done it for us
And she stayed behind bars till she won it for us
Sometimes I wanna give up or at least take a break
That's when I close my eyes and see Coretta Scott's face
Cause sometimes I wanna give up and at least take a break
That's when I close my eyes and see Coretta Scott's face

[Hook: Sample of The Jaggerz]
Saw it all
I'll hold the world outside this bubble [2X]
Way up high (I could fly)
I went over the wall (Saw it all)

[Nas]
Standin' at the pue panoramic view of the seating
Greeting, I've been meaning to do me
Some letter reading, To the King
He forever breathin', Your message is never leavin'
Some of your homies' phonies, I should say it when I see 'em
Them sleazy bastards, Some greedy pastors, jerks
Should never be allowed in Ebenezer Baptist Church, In Atlanta
So people be patient, I know this ghetto grammar
But I'm a street dude, Normally I just speak rude
Martin Luther, The martyr, The trooper, Hate killed him
Nobel Peace Prize winner, They duplicate the feelin'
As a kid, I ain't relate really
I would say your Dreams speech jokingly
Till your world awoken me
First, I thought your were passive, Soft one who ass kissed
I was young, Be honest, I was feelin Muhammad
I ain't even know the strength you had to have to march
You was more than just talk, You the first real Braveheart
We miss you
Feel like King be in me sometimes (Way up high)

[Hook: Sample of The Jaggerz]
Saw it all
I'll hold the world outside this bubble [2X]
Way up high (I could fly)
I went over the wall (Saw it all)

[The Game]
The word "nigger" is nothing like "nigga"
Don't sound shit alike, Like Game, Like Jigga
One came before the other
Like aim and pull the trigger
One is slang for my brotha, One is hang and take a picture
The rope aint tight enough, He still alive, Go fix it
Pour some gasoline on him, Call his daughters black bitches
Make him pick cotton
While their momma cleaning up the kitchen
The same cotton in white tees
That's the cotton they was pickin'
If Dr. King marched today, Would Bill Gates march?
I know Obama would but would Hillary take part?
Great minds think great thoughts
The pictures I paint make the Mona Lisa look like fake art
I feel the pain of Nelson Mandela
Cause when it rains it pours
I need Rihanna's umbrella for Coretta Scott's tear drops
When she got the phone call
That the future just took a fuckin' head shot
I wonder why Jesse Jackson didn't catch him
Before his body dropped
Would he give me the answer? Probably not

[Hook: Sample of The Jaggerz]
Saw it all
I'll hold the world outside this bubble [2X]
Way up high (I could fly)
I went over the wall (Saw it all)
