Verse 1

Stories I can't tell
Should I keep them in heart or my brain cell?
Bet if I give it to the press
I guarantee it'll sell
About a thousand prints nowadays that's doing pretty well
It gets harder when you're skin ain't fair
I want to get a better job but my name ain't fair
So I settle for wages like bus fares
And be the roller coaster in your fun fair
I will work so hard till you can't compare me to no one
I will do everything in pair like Noah
I believe in getting it back twice like job
And for that reason I can't stop
In spite of the hiccups
And all of that real talk above
Now I'm all about redemption songs like Bob
But I'm MuRli from Togo, citizen by law
That's just me
Not Everybody
Daddy was a refugee so I'm free
I know a lot of people who’d pay to have this
I pray they're still them by the time they find it
When the end of the tunnel conceals an abyss
I cry for the souls who die to find bliss
I meet a lot of people who hate this practice
Of me being Irish
And I reply this


I don't have to be like you
I don’t have to be like you
I don’t have to be like you
Or look like you to be cool like you
Same way
You don't have to be like me
You don’t have to be like me
You don’t have to be like me
Or act like me to be grand like me

Verse 2
