Damian Marley & Nas - Land Of Promise

Now I and I say greetings in the name of the Mighty King
And I and I say played by the King love is all I bring
And I and I say Africa is I and I responsibility dreadlocks
Yes, huh!

To the promised land
Going to The promised land
Yes the promised land, oh gosh now
To the promised land, hey!

Imagine Ghana like California with Sunset Boulevard
Johannesburg would be Miami
Somalia like New York
With the most pretty light
The nuffest pretty car
Ever New Year the African Times Square lock-off
Imagine Lagos like Las Vegas
The Ballers dem a Ball
Angola like Atlanta
A pure plane take off
Bush Gardens inna Mali
Chicago inna Chad
Magic Kingdom inna Egypt
Philadelphia like Sudan
The Congo like Colorado
Fort Knox inna Gabon
People living in Morocco like the state of Oregon
Algeria warmer than Arizona bring your sun lotion
Early morning class of Yoga on the beach in Senegal
Ethiopia the capitol fi di Congression
A deh so I belong a deh di the King come from
I can see us all in limos, Jaguars and B'mos

Riding on the King's Highway
To the promised land
Going to the promised land, oh gosh
Ye the promised land
Yeaha the promised land, oh, oh

Promised Land I picture Porsches, Basquiat Portraits
Pinky Rings realistic princesses
Heiresses bunch a Kings and Queens
Plus I picture fortunes for kids out in Port-Au-Prince
Powerless they not allowed to fit, but not about to slip
Vision promised land with fashion like
Madison Ave Manhattan, Saks 5th Ave and Rodeo
Relaxing popping labels, promised land no fables
This where the truth's told use them two holes
Above your nose to see the proof yo!
Imagine a contraption that could take us back when
The world was run by black men
Back to the future, anything can happen
If these are the last days
And 100-foot waves come crashing down
I get some hash and pounds
Pass around the bud then watch the flood
Can't stop apocalypse
My synopsis is catastrophic
If satellites is causing earthquakes
Will we survive it?
Honestly man it's the sign of the times
And the times at hand

There's a lot of work to be done, oh gosh
In the promised land
Talking 'bout the promised land, oh gosh
Take me to The promised land
Oh the promised land..

There's plenty of land for you and I, by and by
Lots of food to share for everyone
No time for segregation

In the promised land
Yes a to the promised land
The promised land
Going to The promised land, oh, oh
There's a lot of work to be done, oh gosh,
In the promised land
