Lyrics

A real Mammas Boy

Written By: Blak Kla Soyl

Sister got a son
He's a real mammas boy
He cooks
He cleans
He nah use woman like toy
He took heed to the things that his Mamma did say
He's not a player not a gangster
He moves Jah way .

A real mammas boy
They say
Ya soft when ya mammas boy
But hey
A reall woman wants a real man
A real mammas boy

A real mammas boy loves his Mamma like life and when he loves his woman he makes her his wife
He nah ramp or skin teeth you cant dis your queen or youths
A real mammas boy defends the truth.

Chorus

We come to make positive this mamma boy phrase
Sisters we are strong we don't Raise our men for the grave
We show them by example the meaning of queen they grow to be Kings
Knowing a Queen being a King
A Real mammas boy is a real man
Cause mamma showed him Truth threw Jah plan.

Chorus

Lion Heart

Written By: Onika Best

I see you in the depths of the ghetto.
working in babylon
builing forces to contend with
so that we all can trod on home
your the foundation of your home
your youths nah wan leave you alone.
the evil man
they want all your land
but as we breath the breath of life
ethiopia still stands free

chorus
lion heart..lion heart. lion heart heart

only you can change a babies diaper
comb for your woman childs hair
walk in your natural position
with your chin pointed to the air.
chorus
this one is dedicated to all man of the universe, who practice to do good
the road it is a winding one
but you gotta stand where christ him stood
chorus end

Suburban truths

Written By: Onika best

How can you care about me
when you dont care about yourself
how can you know me
when you dont know yourself
how can you love me

chorus

to care is to love
to love it is Jah

he is our maker
through wordsong

all of you with hatred inside

Written By: Onika Best

chorus
Do you know whats a King of Queens
And what significance does it bring
Oh is it a good thing
to be a King of Queens..

Suzie got a hard slap today
for saying something out the way
like going for a morning walk alone
or sitting to long on the phone
suzi suzi suzi suzi ...oh lord

Jane has a broken leg
for making soft hard boiled eggs
and now shes wearing a cast
and her husband sends her flowers that never last
oh Jane OH Jane Oh Jane..lord

now all the women on her job are still seeing shrinks today
cause he carved her in an unartistic way
Shiela Sheila....sheila!!!! shiela...oh lord

Written By: Onika Best

In this Iwa
nuff tings a go on
people perverting the dawn
day time seems so much

then comes a new day called night
spiritual iniquities roam the earth
creating folly for their own death
life it is for living
the sun shines bright

in this iwa
in this here iwa
nuff tings a go on
so you better watch out
