I'm strong to the finish
'Cause I eats the guinness
I drinks the spinach till it's all dimnished
Over drunk like a big band Bossa Nova
I'll even drink the pee of a cobra
I'll show you my tijuana style
Walking around with a chicken shit smile
Joseph K in Kafka's trial
I reckon that I'll be going away for a while
I'll be standing sideways
Singing my way on the top of a juggernaut
Flying down the highway
The people will mistake me for priscilla
But i'm more like Attilla the hun da mad killa like

Word, i'm black thunderbird
They thought I was disturbed
They thought i was disturbed
Word, i'm black thunderbird
They thought I was disturbed

Sword fights wit the knights of the round
Brick lane bagels then back to ilford town
I'm too cool to know what's going down
I don't know if it's true what they said about ezra
I severed my own head
And took seven steps from the seven step snake
But i still ain't dead
Next time I use a machete
I used to body pop but i'm not rock rock
Hey you the Earthling crew
Come and do a dance yeah, yeah yeah, yeah
I'm not buffalo girl running the outside
And i'm not something something
Something, something, something

Word, i'm black thunderbird
They thought I was disturbed
They thought i was disturbed
Word, i'm black thunderbird
They thought I was disturbed
They thought I was disturbed
They thought I was disturbed
They thought I was disturbed

I'm the black, black, black

I found myself in the middle of a lake
Attached to a hook it looks like i'm the bait
Not the man of steel but i got steel plated armour
When they came for me i broke the tooth of the piranha
I drifted further out into the sea
I sank to the bottom and I saw Bruce lee
See he was fighting with the man from atlantis
Crazy frantic antics praying Mantis
I couldn't tell who was winning
I took off my armour it was too heavy to swim in
I reached the surface i saw a fish with a fishing rod
Oh my god it's the mad scientist the killa cod

Word, i'm black thunderbird
They thought I was disturbed
They thought I was disturbed
Word, i'm black thunderbird
They thought I was disturbed

Word, i'm black thunderbird
They thought I was disturbed
They thought I was disturbed
Word, i'm black thunderbird
They thought I was disturbed

There I go
Looking like tra la la

There I go
Looking like tra la la

There I go
Looking like tra la la

There I go
Looking like tra la la

There I go
Looking like tra la la

There I go
Looking like tra la la

There I go
Looking like tra la la

There I go
Looking like tra la la
