Imma Be [Gil Scott-Heron]

Imma Be [Gil Scott-Heron] (Black Eyed Peas 2010) 11/30

Crossed the globe and seven seas
Sat my ass down in the crossroads and stared the devil in the eye
Livin’ life, feelin’ free, that’s how it’s supposed to be

He asked me where I’ve been where I aim
I told him everywhere and again
Crossed the globe and seven seas

I walked in the pathways of kings devil
You cannot claim this body devil
Livin’ free, feelin’ free, that’s how it’s supposed to be

He said he didn’t believe in me
And I said I didn’t believe in him
Crossed the globe and seven seas

I’ve seen too much to believe in anything
Too little to not understand that this body is going to cycle around
Livin’ life, feelin’ free, that’s how it’s supposed to be

Everything becomes more itself devil
Even you, you either renew or end
Crossed the globe and seven seas
Livin’ life, feelin’ free, that’s how it’s supposed to be
