Yeah I got a dream I can step on the stage,
And see a whole load a pages of rhymes that don't age,
In my mind a recite the whole book in reverse,
Without need to rehearse a single line and not curse.
Bad behaviour is easy, I know it believe me,
and if nobody sees me, then how can they police me?
Ignored and bored, but how do I shine?
Steal a car to unwind or write a slamming rhyme?
I choose the latter, it's phatter, I won't shatter my dreams,
Just because someone mean wants to let off some steam.
You want to hold me back? realise you will lose.
I choose these shoes to step away from your rules.
And now we're playing by mine and you know I got game,
With a prime rhyme designed to grab a hold of your brain.
I'm not divinely inspired, but fired up to the wire,
If I don't make it, I don't shake it, you can call me liar,
I got a dream!
Chorus [Dr. Martin Luther King]
I got a dream that the violence will cease,
and every member of society will fight for peace.
And gain belief in our peers, and remove the fears,
From the young and the old that we been feeling for years.
And that our kids are protected, instead of rejected.
Work and earn your respect if you want to be respected.
Don't fool yourself, just because you're elected,
That you'll be re-elected by the people collective.
And I'll hit it 'till you get it, I won't stop for breath,
Until the people understand just where they been left.
By deceit and corruption, expensive functions,
Drinking wine and champagne, you better hear the injunction.
Don't take the public role for the cash and control,
You bet the very next speech better come from your soul.
'Cos if it doesn't come so, I'm relinquishing control.
I got a beef, I got belief, you gotta know I got a goal.
I got a dream!
Chorus [Dr Martin Luther King]
