"Sneakers" as written by Patrice Bart-williams, Kirk Mcdowell and Granville Thomas....
What lives in you lives in me has always been will always be
Yeah were free like the breeze um they couldn't fuck with Patrice
Yo the world is rotten from top to bottom the devil comes down
Yeah frequently to go soul shopping
What we know we have forgotten
It takes a second to kill what it took a generation to build
Well this will rise and this won't drop
And this will move and this won't stop
'cause this is real and this is true and this is me and this is you

[Chorus ]
Look at my sneakers to judger me
I'll leave them speechless and dodgy
They say that niggaz too foxy
But they could never touch me

Look at my sneakers to judger me
I'll leave them speechless and dodgy
They say that niggas too foxy
But they could never touch me

Na na na nana na na na
Na na na nana na na na
Na nana na na naaaa.

The military didn't want me
They said I couldn't deal with authority
They guy took a look said I was a crook
Looked at my face looked at my waist
Looked at my shoes looked at my hat
Said that boy means trouble that boy is bad
They kicked me out of the boarding school 'cause be burned up mi room
The fire we mi a burn so big it did a kill dem wid the fumes!
When me at the club me they see me in VIP
Anywhere I go I need to bring my I.D
At my own gigs their messing with me
Just the other day I had a fight with my own security!
When I'm on the train they check up on me
When I'm on the plane they check up on me
When I'm at the border they dig up my laundry
They say I've got that look like I'm from the middle east

[Chorus]

Look at his sneakers to judge him he leaves them speechless and dodgy
They say that niggas too foxy but they could never get dodgy
Na na na nana na na na
Na na na nana na na na
Na nana na na naaaa.

They see that bling but I do my thing but the sound wing 'cause their shit sounds so
Thin
Now there in but trends change like the wind when I step up then judgment begins

I want to hear my echo from up town down to the ghetto
From Adis Ababa straight down to Soweto
Me say echo they say my lyric dem too dark so let me say them in
Falsetto

Me say who are you to tell me the fuck to tell me what to do
Coming out of the blue with your tie and your shoe
Me say who tell me tell me who the fuck are you
Instead of looking at my eyes you be looking at my shoes

[Chorus]

Na na na nana na na na
Na na na nana na na na
Na nana na na naaaa
(Look at his sneakers to judge him he leaves them speechless and dodgy
They say thast niggas too foxy but they could never touch me)

Na na na nana na na na
Na na na nana na na na
Na nana na na naaaa
(Look at my sneakers to judger me I'll leave them speechless and dodgy
They say that niggas too foxy But they could never touch me)

Na na na nana na na na
Na na na nana na na na
Na nana na na naaaa.
