Lyrics:(talking)
If you can talk you can sing
If you can walk you can dance
That's an old
proverb from Zimbabwe
You know what I mean
If you can talk you can sing
If you can
walk you can dance
Yeah, and the trumpet is blown
Yeah, alright, C'mon, c'mon, c'mon,
c'mon
Alright, Wooh!

(talking)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, uh, one more time
Yo,
anybody can tell you how it is
What we putting down right here is how it is and how it could
be
Reflection Eternal for real
And with that-

These cats is no match
Plus
they lack a certain knack for rapping
Chasing but they never catch the wagon
Like
rerunning what's hap'ning
Since back when
They had potty issues and snotty tissues, we
been rockin'
Think you poppin' next year nobody will miss you
My thoughts is too advanced
for the artists on these labels
They come sweeter than sabal and softer than mashed
potatoes
I tried to told you the rhymes run over emcees like Land Rovers
Took 'em back in
time like Sam Kofa, Sam Kofa

We stand over the Atlantic, looking broad like a man's
shoulders
The fire is trapped in a belly, ready to pop like canned soda
We outlasting,
from middle passage
Touched down in New York
Cincinnatay! Big Ohio status what you
thought
Money it's classic these bastards try to treat us like cattle
So life has been a
constant battle, battle
Rising above the crabs in the barrel
Way too used to living in
death's shadow
We stay on point like the best arrow, arrow
We hit the target accurate

Star shit, back it up
When we hit town, y'all niggas pack it up
That's how we get down,
straight smash it up
Like a whip, hydroplaning
Hydro on the brain and maintaining

Game changing into subtle shit, we remain blatant
Yo, got to tell you to your face
You get
replaced in this game, by Kweli
Place the face with the name
These cats drink champagne
and toast to death and pain
Like slaves on a ship talking about who got the flyest chain


(talking)
Yo, we the reflection of our ancestors
We'd like to thank you for the
building blocks you left us
Cause your spirit possessed us
Yo, you blessed us
Thank
you very much (7x)

Yo, we the reflection of our ancestors
We'd like to thank you for
the building blocks you left us
Cause your spirit possessed us
Yo, you blessed us

Thank you very much
God bless you (7x)
