    I thought you knew

    I want to have my own show
    So I write a play with a score
    Without my permission I’m on your show
    So don’t complain,
    About “Pimps no more”, it’s a pain?

    Whats good for one
    Should be good for all
    Unless you’re a hypocrite
    And practice unbalanced laws

    You got me apart of your game
    With no privacy I write with no shame
    Respect my chocolate House
    And I’ll respect your Vanilla House

    Serve people the way you wanna be
    Drunkenness of power and can’t see
    And the media have no rules
    Don’t be cruel, don’t be so cruel
    I can turn s stallion horse into a mule
    And Elephants into a stupid Mammoth
    Black Tarzan knows how to ride both
    So don’t make a mistake about
    The power of persuasion and clout

    I detected the truth
    From birth to conception
    The cross superimposed on scales of justice
    I must reveal the Historical deception

    Knowledge is free without Ransoms
    Foundation built from brick Masons
    The eye of Ra on top of Pyramids so holler
    Green skins got it on the back of a dollar

    Ancient history isn’t old
    Its current history its new
    There’s nothing old under the sun
    And this I thought you knew
