Dizzee Rascal – Imagine lyrics

Imagine if I showed you 1 day I was leavin da hood,
Wud you call me a sell out, wud you say it's all good?
Wud you folow if you cud?
Or wud you jus tell me get da hell out?

And imagine if I showed you dat I'd found another way of gettin dough wiv out doin dirt,
Lets blurt, wud you love me 4 givin you sum hope?
Or ressent me coz ur pride got hurt?

Imagine if we never grew up on a council estate,
An was country manor raised, wiv a spoon in our mouth,
Wud we still b makin fuss about da east an da south?
Wud we shiver at da robberys, murder an da crack?
An thank god dat we didn hav 2 live like dat,
Jus an image on da tv as were comftarbly sat,
Sippin wine room lit by da summer sunshine,
Not a worry in da world as we cash will e chat?
Oblivious 2 how we wud b livin on da flipside,
No experience, not a clue about a ruff ride,
No harrassment, no boy dem on our back side,
Dat'd b amazin still!

But I no you wonder wud it make you any less real?
Wats da current spot ur standin in, offerin,
If you had a better offer wud you go 4 da kill?
Snap out of ur day dream, how do you feel?

Does it all seem worthwhile 4 ya?
Try an put it in perspective,
Retrospective of ur profile an ur honour,
Do you wana hang about or are you a goner?

Come along fink fast, decision time,
Uve been livin in da grime, don you wana climb?
Da ladder of life, da wall of enlightenment,
Or are you lookin 4 da hype an excitement,
Coz deres so much drama in da ldn,
Its kinda hard tryin 2 find legal money 2 spend,
Generation, genocide look possible,
Da rate at which we drew up 4 da sken,
An pretend, dat we don't no who da real enemy is,
Who shud we hold responsible, instead we offend,
A couple square metres of pavement in da endz,
What wud we acchieve my friends?
