lyrics

if they never latch on to this funky sound
i'll still be standing on solid ground
gotta gift in this, stay swift with this
music makin journey, global people learnin
never in a hurry, i keep a fire burning
clocks stay turning, like butter i be churning
with a smooth vibe transfer
groove is the answer
at times i get lost in the rhythm of dancers
as they rock and they roll into the late night hours
most of them beautiful like fresh cut flowers
can't pick em all, choose beats instead
cuz that is the way a brother earns his bread
to all the haters in the room u betta recognize
we continue to move as we organize
you can say what you want but you can't block
cuz we gone rock we gone rock
and you can't stop

you got the title of promoter but what you promotin
same old dudes who be barely coastin'
they non original rehashing my old stuff
that i rehashed myself to define my known self
if you ask on the streets everybody knows it
cuz i stay on the grind, you see my picture on posters
global to atlas, gerji to lancha
bole to piassa, even shashemane rastas
we soar and we glide to a state of nirvana
jolly, uptown, getting down in arada
got the 251 Band mashing up the bandstand
brothers in music, cats who really understand and
to all the haters in the room u betta recognize
we continue to groove as you criticize
you can say what you want but you can't block
cuz we gone rock we gone rock
and you can't stop

you can't stop the rock
living in the 251 let's rock the spot
ethiopian thoughts, abyssinian dreams
on the top of the rock
letting off my steam, yup
abyssinia, yes abyssinia
if i was gone, i would surely be missing ay
she's so bright, make my eyes so blind
ET girl hot, wanna press rewind
making my music, mind revolution
when we on stage we be wildin' and lotion'
my inspiration comes from a lifestyle
wake up in addis wait 'til the lights out
take my break, go to the south-side
might get a beer and i'm gone' smoke outside
never gone' stop, hard like a rock
here in ethiopia until the clock stop

verse 4 going out to the loyal fans
who be showing brothers love when they shake and dance
whether they wearing the t's or copping cd's
it's a blessing to know that we spreading peace
in this land so magical and mystical
a real chance of a lifetime, a miracle
and if you see me walking down the street, don't hesitate
to say wassup cuz i really do appreciate the family
stay cool quite candidly
when cats can't standing me
they blacklist banning me
chances not handing me
just not fond of me
while others i don't know taking pictures and they tagging me
to all the haters in the room u betta recognize
you continue to lose when you minimize
you can say what you want but you can't block
cuz we gone rock we gone rock
and you can't stop
