DJ Shadow – Kings & Queens Lyrics

(feat. Run The Jewels)

[Intro: El-P]
Greetings to all
Ayy
Greetings to all
Uh

[Verse 1: El-P]
Greetings to all
Here from the edge of a wall
Upon a ledge where I'll fall
Might be the way to make sense of it all
Certainly worked for the dog
I'm talking pet of my mama's mama
Grandmama ma
Jumped for his life, lost it instead
Didn't like heights, I gotta guess
Liked starving to death even less
Living room was a badly made mess
Only inside of the room, there's no breath
Pardon me [?] I get it wrong
We never met, this is only a song
I heard a story just once with my mom
She said the bottoms you held, it ain't last very long
When you gave out no one knew that you gone
Or knew that you couldn't bring food to the dog
Damn, look at that piece
Looking on and it made her cheeks stutter deceased
Little white noise coming out the tv

[?] the heat
Go to the balcony, cracked just enough to hear honking
No horns from the street
Wondering how long little Fluffy just stood there and stared
No one [?] he jumping [?]
So families don't rise or drop from the sky
Four little paws and a bark to the gods
Born from the death of a queen in New York
Mama took that but fought with those odds
Insert the blood, Fluffy just jumped
To me, he's always been a hero unsung
Mama jumped too like, "Fuck it, I'm here"
And I'ma jump too like, "Fuck it, let's go"
'Cause I don't really see no other clear road
It's just get dead or grow to get old
Really can't risk not taking that risk
Fluffy done jumped, how am I gon' ditch?
Backflip the fuck off a cliff, lil' bitch
In front of foundation, make a quick wish
Rtj, no fall from grace
Have a great day, get the bag and away, ayy

[Chorus]
There's never a test too major
No matter what time may bring

[?] to break us made us
Kings and queens
There's never a test too major
No matter what time may bring

[?] to break us made us
Kings and queens, kings and queens

[Verse 2: Killer Mike]
Some' 'bout the feel of this beat
Making me think of Denise, that was my mama
Also the Levy and Shonda
But [?] by Betty and Lester in heaven, yeah
But right now the focus is Five-Finger Freddy
Who worked for Big Eddy who drove in a Chevy
The color spaghetti and he sold the lettuce
And lettuce is actually weed, ayy
I know you actually know 'cause
You ain't no actual ho, uh

Mama was pretty and Freddy was petty
So he played my mom like a lame
But he did not know that Denise was a beast
She flipped on his ass insane
A stick and a stab, a stick and a stab
He couldn't get ahold of her hand
A stick and a stab, a stick and a stab
My mama was whooping a man
Fuckboy Freddy wasn't ready
Playing with Denise got fed up
Got real bloody and messy
Learned my lesson, and my lesson was
Be impeccable with your work
Even dope boys on the curb
You a king, say what you mean and mean yo' word
Or you might get fucked up
Left out leaking like Freddy on the side of a curb
With a bloodstained hand, mama still fetched my clothes
Told me, "Stand like a man and never fold for these hoes"
Look

[Chorus]
There's never a test too major
No matter what time may bring

[?] to break us made us
Kings and queens
There's never a test too major
No matter what time may bring

[?] to break us made us
Kings and queens, kings and queens
