NasI Know I Can

I know I can Be what I wanna be If I work hard at it, I'll be what I wanna be I know I can, I know I can Be what I wanna be, be what I wanna be If I work hard at it, if I work hard at it I'll be where I wanna be, I'll be where I wanna be B b boys and girls listen up, you can be anything in the world In god we trust, an architect, doctor, maybe an actress But nothin' comes easy it takes much practice, like I met a woman who's becoming a star, She was very beautiful leaving people in awe Singin' songs lena horne, but the younger version, Hung with the wrong person, got her strung on the heroin, Cocaine sniffin' up drugs all in her nose, Could've died so young, now looks ugly and old, No fun cuz now when she reaches for hugs People hold their breath cuz she smells of corrosion and death, Watch the company you keep, and the crowd you bring, Cuz they came to do drugs and you came to sing, So if you gonna be the best I'm gonna tell you how, Put your hands in the air and take the vow Chorus: I know I can Be what I wanna be If I work hard at it, I'll be what I wanna be I know I can, I know I can Be what I wanna be, be what I wanna be If I work hard at it, if I work hard at it I'll be where I wanna be, I'll be where I wanna be X2 B b boys and girls listen again This is for grown looking girls who's only ten, The ones who watch videos and do as they see As cute as can be, up in the club with fake I.d., Careful fore you meet a man with h.I.v. You can host a tv like oprah winfrey Whatever you decide, be careful, some men be rapists So act your age, don't pretend to be older than you are, Give yourself time to grow, you're thinkin' he can give you wealth But so young boys, you could use a lot of help you know Ya thinkin' life's all about smokin' weed and ice, You don't wanna be my age and can't read and write Beggin' different women for a place to sleep at night, Smart boys turn to men and do whatever they wish If you believe you can achieve, then say it like this Chorus: I know I can, I know I can Be what I wanna be, be what I wanna be If I work hard at it, if I work hard at it I'll be where I wanna be, I'll be where I wanna be X2 B b fore we came to this country, We were kings and queens never porch monkeys There was empires in africa called kush, Timbuktu, where every race came to get books to learn from black teachers Who taught greeks and romans, asians arabs, and gave them gold When gold was converted to money It all changed Money then became empowerment for europeans, The persian military invaded They heard about the gold, the teachings and everything sacred Africa was almost robbed naked, Slavery was money, so they began making slave ships Egypt was the place that alexander the great went He was in shock that in the mountains were black faces Shot up thier nose to impose what basically Still goes on today you see If the truth is told the youth can grow, They'll learn to survive, until they gain control Nobody says you have to be gangsters, hoes Read more, learn more, change the globe Ghetto children do your thing Hold your head up little man you're a king Young princess when you get your wedding ring Your man is saying she's my queeeeeeen Chorus: I know I can, I know I can Be what I wanna be, be what I wanna be If I work hard at it, if I work hard at it I'll be where I wanna be, I'll be where I wanna be X2
