They told me this is a free country
I feel cooped up I wanna bust free

I keep my eyez down like I'm in a black burka
Now I make tunes say shaka laka laka
If you check me, I check you
Say somin' new, say somin' cool
Acca Acca I, breaker, breaker jaw every every time, someone steps on my toe

I really love a lot
I really love a lot,
But I fight the ones that fight me
But I fight , but I fight, but I fight

Like Hu Jintao
Instead of them I got a new found friend
Like Obama needs to love up chen
Like a hand me down sucker trowing bombs out to Mecca
Keep ya head down like a Unicef worker
How come how come I, yeah but yeah but why?
If you met me then you'll get me but if you get me, will you get a fee
And I won't turn my cheek like I'm Ghandi
I fight the ones that fight me

I really love a lot
I really love a lot,
But I fight the ones that fight me
But I fight, but I fight, but I fight
