Erykah Badu – Soldier lyrics

Mmmmm
See he's organized
And he's on the ball
Never miss a day of school
And he's a underdog
Wanna learn more and more
Cuz his mama taught him good
He's about to change the face
Of yo ghetto neighborhood
Walking to school today
Saw a brother on the streets
Seem like errthang was cool
Cept the brother's packing heat
Oop oop
Then everything changed
Cuz he saw his own wings
And his mother was sad
They will last
Time will past
Cuz I

What am I talkin' bout
Errbody know what this song's about
Dey be trying to hide the history
But they know who we are
Do oo you want to see
Errybody rise to this degree?
Raise ya hands high if you agree
Just say Yessireeee ooooh,
Yessiree
If you agree say,
Yessireeeeee ooooohh,
Yessiree
Ugh
Come on
Ugh
Break it down say
Mmmm, mmhhh
Hey hey (shoop)
Mmmm, aaaye
Hey hey (shoop)
Mmmm, oooh
Hey hey (shoop)
Mmmm, oooh
Hey

Now to my folks think dey living sweet,
Well dey gone fuck around and push delete
To the girls on perscriptions pills,
I know how ya feel
To my boys in iraqi fields
This aint no time to kill
To my girls in therapy,
See imma tell you this fo' free
To my folks up on the hill,
With the cake and dollar bills,
You need to watch da dirty cop
Dey the one you need to watch
I'm talking bout the dirty cop
Dey the one you need to watch
Stop

You get the wake up call
When you saw the buildings fall
Bowties with the final call
Get ya money dollar bill yall
Bowties with the final calls
Get ya money dollar bill yall

To my folks on the picket line
Don't stop til you change dey mind
I got love fo' my folks
Baptized when the levy broke
We gone keep marchin' on
Until you hear dat freedom song
And if you think about turning back
I got the shotgun on ya back
And if you think about turning back
I got the shot gun on ya back
Bllaaaa (Blat!)

What am I talking bout
Errbody know what this song's about
Dey be trying to hide the history
But they know who we are
Dooooo you want to see
Errybody rise to the next degree?
Raise ya hands high if you agree
Just say Yessireeee ooooh,
Yessiree
If you agree say,
Yessiree hey,
Yessiree aye

Hey, hey, hey
Break it down say
Mmmm, ooooh
Hey hey (shoop)
Mmmm, oooh
Hey hey (shoop)
Mmmm, oooh
