    Sway’s verse lyrics plus a brief appendix underneath (props to MsMo!)

    “I had that MEGA DRIVE in me fresh back from Ghana, ready to MASTER SYSTEMS and go further (farther) bought be a SEGA GENISIS I used to call it saga between reading Genesis beginning of our saga
    Lost in the games they couldn’t CONTROL me when I lost a couple relatives the games CONSOLE’d me, nearly went off track I PLAYSTATIONS lonely slipping into the stereotypes like SONY now I’m A PIONEER
    But you can call me Arthur aligned with Sheikh’s spear (Shakespeare) Akala, Akwaba (*1)/ We’re authors in armour ready to fight causes at harbour for all of us, we’re Oliver’s (*2) we’re doing it for afters
    Trying to stay “a head” – Olive oil on the palms of the Pastors we’re doing it for answers/ Some of the pic’s I could paint are ‘Art-less (Heartless), I’m rocking kicks the kid Hand made (Maid) Liker Hager. (*3)
    Got a little sum son to say about the sun U (you) O (owe) your life to the maker of the Sun/ Yeah you owe replace the “U” with and “O” Could they be the same thing? I believe there’s only one Father.
    We’re all even that’s why I believe Europeans wanna be darker and African’s pop a weave in, steady bopping and weaving trying to get that green in like a vegan, we only detect COWards in BEEFing/
    My foots in the door but I’d rather have my keys in. ‘least that would stop Uncle Tom from peeping.
    Back to the weave thing – I need to get it in you head again/ Shaved it in Asia then sent it to American’s, Not everything in India is irie (Arie) (*4), but you are not your hair when you’ve got these little brown girls (*5) playing Heroine’s”

    *1 – Akwaba means Welcome in Twi: A Ghanaian language

    *2- Oliver Twist – Famous for asking for more

    *3- Hager of the Bible Egyptian handmaid of Sarah, and mother of Ishmael.

    *4 – India Arie writer and performer of the song “I am not my hair”
