Who are the kings and queens of Queens?
It aint no G-Unit or Fifty-Cent, but the collective regality of every immigrant.
This i know to be true cuz i lived it.
Brought up with a conscience and being conscious of how humility is the ego's salvation.
Brought up with a conscience and being conscious of how food is not necessarily promised -
Oh Jah! How beautiful it is for the tongue to taste sugar and hearty meat for once.
Who are the kings and queens of Queens?
It aint no G-Unit or Fifty-Cent, but the collective struggles of every immigrant.
Sure, we may have no class but we been working it since birth - working class sistahs and soldiers with so many mouths to feed.
"Feed me, feed me, feed me" this baby's crying says
"Feed me, feed me, feed me" this baby's crying says
Oh Jah! Turn your countenance towards us so that your splendour may placate our yearning for a glimpse of glory.
Who are the kings and queens of Queens?
It aint no G-Unit or Fifty-Cent, but the collective music of every immigrant.
This i know to be true cuz i lived it.
Me and mama keeping track of the bottles and cans, transforming them into nickels and dimes at the local A&P recycling plant.
The smell of evaporated spit and the sound of flies hungrily singing around us became so familiar, as familiar as my own face
which lit up when the cashier gave us our $1.15.
Chinese gypsies, i feel you, i feel you...
Chinese gypsies, i feel you, i feel you...
Oh Jah! Heal the 'hood. Heal the 'hood. Heal the 'hood.

I am.
I am.
I am.

So shanti, please be.
