Lyrics: Ashes

You can’t hold me down, no, you’re in for a surprise.
Like a phoenix – out of the ASHES I will rise.
I see fear in your eyes, boy, you’ve been hypnotised.
Like David and Goliath – I’ll cut you down to size.

Next week’s random word: parliament

Lyrics: LOOP

Caught an amazing documentary about Grime on Channel 4 the other week [see here if you’re quick]. The attack and pace of the lines was the inspiration this week. Really quite pleased with this, although I’m not daring to compare myself with Kano, Dizzee and the boys.

Lacing up layers, all the LOOPS in a stack.
Bass for the players, cut the groove in the scratch.
Blowing ya speakers in the boot at the back –
kick, kick, bass, snare and hi-hat.
Riding the rhythm its The Rage on attack,
fly – it’s a given – high like you’re on smack
colours not hidden, out the box like a Jack.
Snap, like a crack, bruise ya crew blue and black.
Ducking and diving but no quack quack quack.
Bank account details I’ll hack hack hack,
not your iPhone photos though, they’ll be wack
Seconds thought, nah, I’ll take another tack.
Can’t nobody stop me on the track,
tooled up, schooled up, nothing that I lack.
Rack ’em up, pack ’em up, poised for hijack
People get ready – it’s return of the Mack.

Next week we need to get rapping with: ASHES

Lyrics: Cheque

Raise up your glass, make a toast to ya host,
giving you the music from coast to coast.
No need to boast when the CHEQUE‘s in the post.
I ain’t never choked, yo I’m out like ghost.

Lyrics: Observation

More lyrics inspired by the genius of my lovely daughter.

On the swing your hair blows back and forth in the breeze.
You look all slim in disposable nappies.
You want something real bad, and then you say please.
Say goodnight to the boys with a kiss and a squeeze.
Joining mum and me with our cup of teas.
On the ‘chevilon’* watching Peppa or Tellytubbies.
It lights up my life, OBSERVATIONs like these,
helps melt my heart and brings me to my knees.

*Alyssa speak for television

Next week the word for rapping genius is: CHEQUE
