Tune-yards – Gangsta lyrics

[Sirens]

[Voice Loop]

[Verse:]
What's a boy to do if he'll never be a gangsta?
Anger in his heart, but he'll never be a gangsta
If you move into his neighborhood, he'll never make a sound, ooh!

[Sirens]

[Verse 2:]
What's a boy to do if he'll never be a rasta?
Singing from his heart, but he'll never be a rockstar
If you move into his neighborhood, he'll never make a sound
If you move into his neighborhood...

[Hook:]
Bang-bang, oi!
Never move to my hood, cause danger is crawlin' out the wood
Bang-bang, boy-ee
Never move to my hood, cause danger is crawlin' out the wood

[Sirens]

[Verse 3:]
What's a girl to do if she'll never be a rasta?
Singing from her heart, but she'll never be a rockstar?
If you move into her neighborhood, she'll never make a sound
If you move into her neighborhood, she'll never make a...
If you move into her neighborhood, she'll never make a sound

[Hook:]

Hey!

[Interlude]
You gonna put that on tape for posterity?
Rewind the tape!

[Bridge:]
Life in the city... Life in the city...
("... this is happening?")
Makes more sense when [Jesus?] calls me

[Hook:]

[Sirens]
