Politricks

lyrics

[Intro] - MuRli
We're all too busy getting chatty chatty!
Ain't nobody really saying nothing though
But you know what?

[Chorus]
Stuck in politics
Everybody's stuck in politics
Wanna make big man moves but you can't coz your feet got caught up in politics
So you are preaching in fallacy
Something like a new age Pharisee
And I too wanna make an impact but I can't do that till I drop these politics
Stuck in politics
Everybody's stuck in politics
Wanna make big man moves but you can't coz your feet got caught up in politics
So you’re preaching fallacy
Something like a new age Pharisee
And I too wanna make an impact but I can't do that till I drop these politics

[Verse 1] - God Knows
It's all politricks, it's all politricks that the left wing and right wing are fighting so much nobody wants to fly no more
It's all probably tricks, he's faking the fight
He's taking a flight all the way down to Africa
Takes a selfie with a baby, says he's world saving
But he’ll never ever walk across the street to a council estate
First world problems
Phoney, lonely, only started politicking since that episode of Joseph Kony
First world problems
Don't be sour, just be a Don
Don't be a lemon, do you get what I am on
Don't care what the fox says, we want the trues
Keep your million billion views if your opinion is not you!
Keep your bling and your all white parties
Love me in Versace but not in my Nike's
Before the blogosphere's ear was Hozier
Never been a pretender so keep your Hollister
Keep your Abercrombie, Air Maxxes, wristbands, and everything else you hold
sacred to impress people you don't like,
(Ah stop man!)

[Chorus]
Stuck in politics
Everybody's stuck in politics
Wanna make big man moves but you can't coz your feet got caught up in politics
So you are preaching in fallacy
Something like a new age Pharisee
And I too wanna make an impact but I can't do that till I drop these politics
Stuck in politics
Everybody's stuck in politics
Wanna make big man moves but you can't coz your feet got caught up in politics
So you are preaching in fallacy
Something like a new age Pharisee
And I too wanna make an impact but I can't do that till I drop these politics


[Verse 2] - MuRli
Listen I'm a 90s baby 
All that old school PC better miss me
Coz way back when that was on-topic
I was busy being an African baby
Playing in the sand bare feet, no blisters
Now my feet freeze when I walk like hipsters
Didn't get rap till 20 03 
So why am still trying to sound like Biggie
I wanna be that fella like Kuti
Who's gonna introduce you to Djibouti
You'd think that with the genius of our times
Someone might just find a better use of the mind
Said I wanna help the poor 
Make a difference, maybe I could end these wars
But when I get paid I bite my own words
And turn the other cheek to the charity box

[Outro] - MuRli
And you catch me walking around with a water bottle,
All the time, looking healthy
But at home I've got a fridge full of coke bottles
That's a real, professional politrixian for ya!
Bless you all...
Eh yo yo yo! I forgot, I forgot one thing
Have you seen my facebook photo lately?
I'm an ACT-TV-IST baby!

(God Knows)
Yeah but what's it all worth?

[Skit] - Elders from Cecil street
Serious performers! Serious performers!
Everywhere went agog!
These guys... too good (Brilliant!)
Brilliant!
And he was teaching them how to dance
"You have to shuffle to the right, shuffle to the left"
We did that one, how to dance
And you do this and you jump
And you sit down, and you stand
Very good!
And in between you know, they were serving food
