    Nubian King (I Salute You)

    Nubian king I salute you although society wants to erase replace disgrace and shoot you down like a fighter plane flying over unauthorized territory* They label you enable you and strip you of all your beauty and glory* You are not destined for solitary you are not destined for the mortuary you are strong like steroids multiplied 1000 times* You are capable of being a leader when you elevate your mind* You are effervescent like the rays of the Arizona sun you have the power of a cheetahs in the jungle when they run* Like precious rubies and gems your appraisal is high* Like an eagle spreading your wings higher and higher when you let your mind fly* Please take the words that I have spoken rewind them reverse them absorb then and rehearse them until you realize who you really are by far* Look in the mirror and tell yourself you shine bright like the beam of the northern star on a pitch black night* You are the descendants of Pharaohs the descendants of king tut so hold your head high when you strut* Don't let society dilute you refute you and make you believe you are obsolete discard you like trash in the street it is you they want to deceive* No my brotha you are royalty and you reign supreme you are the blueprint of a divine human being* So society when you tell my brothas they are worthless I beg to differ I dispute you* Nubian king stand tall because I salute you all.
