lyrics

Yeah
Mic check
Yeah... Can you hear me out there?
Yes yes
Turn my voice up just a little bit... alright
Good evening
Yeah... uh

We give thanks for this music (Give thanks)
And all the people we get to groove with
Because of you, we have a movement (yeah)
So keep doing what you doing
We give thanks for this music
And all the people we get to groove with (All the people)
Because of you, we have a movement (Because of you)
So keep doing what you doing

I remember writing rhymes to get feedback
now, I don't need that - get my level right
Mister engineer, make sure my voice is clear
How we sounding out there, hands in the air
Let me see you, the stage lights blinding
My DJ mute the track, the crowd wilding (yeah)
Kick an acapella before the next cut
Sum'n they never heard before, some fresh stuff (uh)
Now at a crucial point, give 'em usual joints
They favourites, get their hands waving
The tracks mixed in like it's the radio playing (yeah)
But this is the underground, how you like the sound? (huh?)
Some crowd interaction is happening
Spit an extra verse while they just clapping (C'mon)
Right after, my DJ bring the track in
End with a bang and leave, they call me back in

We give thanks for this music (yeah)
And all the people we get to groove with (All the people)
Because of you, we have a movement (Because of you)
So keep doing what you doing
We give thanks for this music (Give thanks)
And all the people we get to groove with (All the people)
Because of you, we have a movement (Because of you)
So keep doing what you doing

I appreciate the support (fi real)
Salute the soldiers that hold down the fort (First Coast)
Like Port Royal, this is First Coast
I stay loyal to the code, every verse dope
A murderous flow, whether it's herb that I smoke
Or Bourbon I po', or neither the reefer nor the liquor
I paint a picture, make the colours richer
Not just another nigga for the cops to shoot
In hot pursuit, I'm not that youth, I drop the truth
And show you that anything is possible (yeah)
If you believe it, then you can reach it
Just be strategic, study like a genius (uh)
Work on your weakness, always pree the deepest (yeah)
Formulate procedures, remove the leeches
Take care of your son, daughter, nephews, nieces (One love)
One love, I'm out, yo, pieces

We give thanks for this music (Give thanks)
And all the people we get to groove with (All the people)
Because of you, we have a movement (Because of you)
So keep doing what you doing (uh huh)
We give thanks for this music (Give thanks)
And all the people we get to groove with (All the people)
Because of you, we have a movement (Because of you)
So keep doing what you doing

Uh, uh
Beautiful music... courtesy of Mordecai
Hold your lady close
Sip your wine
Look at the stars

Whoo...

Let's take 'em out
