Shirazee – AFRICAN IN NEW YORK Lyrics

AFRICAN IN NEW YORK Lyrics – Shirazee

Everyday I wake up here’s a win,
‘Cause I got here on a dream (oh ye)
I still hear my mother praying everyday,
I’m an African in New York
You dey see am from my pride and energy When I dey waka down the street (waka waka)
You can hear it in my accent when I talk,
I’m an African in New York

O oh I’m an alien,
I’m a legal alien
I’m an African in New York 2X
I’m gonna make it
I going to get it
I’m gonna make it ooo
Gonna get it
I’m gonna make it
I’m gonna make it ooo

Nothing go stop me from green paper that I need
Mandem go hustle til we’re free (hustle hustle oo)
I’m even hotter out here when it’s getting cold cause back home I promised not to fold When I see my brothers and sisters on the train
We say a lot with just our eyes, (look at me baby)
We’re gonna make it through the rain ‘Cause in the end we only got one life

O oh I’m an alien,
I’m a legal alien
I’m an African in New York
I’m gonna make it
I going to get it
I’m gonna make it ooo
Gonna get it
I’m gonna make it I’m gonna make it ooo

African man in New York
You can hear it when I talk
You can see it when I walk
African man in New York
You can hear it when I talk
You can see it when I walk

Shirazee eeeh
