Jamila Woods – Octavia Lyrics

Octavia by Jamila Woods


[Jamila Woods]
Don’t ever let a textbook scare you
You the missing piece, OG technology, they stole you
Don’t ever let ’em knock the way you talk
The language you evolve your natural genius
Merch it

[Jamila Woods]
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

[Jamila Woods]
I’m the truth, I am a fact
They lie on me, I have to laugh
I write it down, it happens next
So be it, see to it
(Their science is a-lyin’ on me and you
That don’t make it true)
I’m the truth, I am a fact
They lie on me, I have to laugh
I write it down, it happens next
So be it, see to it
(Their science is a-lyin’ on me and you
That don’t make it true)

[Jamila Woods]
(Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)

[Jamila Woods]
It used to be the worst crime to write a line
Our great great greats risked their lives, learned letters fireside
Like a seat on a bus, like heel in a march
Like we holdin’ a torch, it’s our inheritance
They tease our pronunciations then try to mimic our greatness
We are a precious creation, our black has no imitation

[Jamila Woods]
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

[Jamila Woods]
I’m the truth, I am a fact
They lie on me, I have to laugh
I write it down, it happens next
So be it, see to it
(Their science is a-lyin’ on me and you
That don’t make it true)
I’m the truth, I am a fact
They lie on me, I have to laugh
I write it down, it happens next
So be it, see to it
(Their science is a-lyin’ on me and you
That don’t make it true)
