Two Gallants – Git Proud lyrics

Listen up because I bear the news
And I do my best to counterfeit some blues
Or better yet just rearrange some truths
I'll tell you what you need to know I choose
Perfection hides inside a diamond ring
But if it don't shine then I don't need to sing
When it does, well that's the word I bring
Pay no mind if it don't mean a thing

But I see fire and a hard ring starts to fall
And humpty dumpty is climbing higher up the wall
How he got there I just won't recall
No I don't smell nothing strange
All is clean, it's got no stains
Streets are clean while he points the blame
Stricts are new but the bags the same
Time to play that freedom game so just git proud

So hear this because I am the word
Well, I'm the circus act and you're the herd
But if my remedies seem too absurd
You never notice what you never heard
'Cause I can show you how to kill your time
And I can tell you where to spend your dime
And I can weatherman you when it shines
Just listen up and you'll do fine

But I see fire and the heavens leave the sky
And humpty dumpty told me not to tell you why
As if I even had reason to try
So here's a tip from me to you
Fear your neighbor 'cause he fears you
You best act white or he'll tell on you
Freedom rings but not for you
If you don't know what to do then just git proud

There was a protest just the other day
A crowd of hoodlums in disarray
Shaking fists every which way
I can't believe they die their hair that way
What they were asking for I won't recall
Some kind of anarchy, the worst of all
Thank god for us they couldn't pass the wall
Big Brother was there standing tall

But I see fire and the roof comes tumbling down
And humpty dumpty got a new star spangled crown
He picks a fight and he twirls his guns around
But all his horses and all his men
Must be good 'cause good must win
But don't you doubt a thing my friend
Just grab your flag and jump right in
You're either with us or your them so you best git proud
