Young Americans

I met this beautiful sister overseas
It was after show We would go
Over Everything
She was a from a poorer country
She spit game on how she wishes she was American with fortune and fame
She sees the opportunity not the nuance
I said please get information like Beyonc
She said most Blacks take U.S for a joke
I did no we do t but U.S dropped bombs on Blacks in Oklaho
Black Wall Street 1921
The wealthiest Blacks was murdered by bombs mobs and guns
And that was just after the reconstruction yo
Where we was promised equal rights but Jim Crow
Ku klux klan hoods and hangings
She said this is now that was then
I said yeah sister many do better as immigrants coming to America than Blacks who are ADOS
That's: African Descendants of slaves
Black actually from the U.S. born and raised
Our lack equality and racism remains
Turn on the infra red and you can still see the blood stains

We all
We all
Wanna be
Young Americans
And she said
We all
We all
Wanna be
Young Americans
And she said
You got it all
You got it all
You got it all
Young Americans
And she said
You got it all
You got it all
You got it all
Young Americans

She said
Black Americans be dripping I that gold though driving Buggati’s, Chanel Bags and Hublot
She still thinks the 45 prez was dumb as a mofo but she said that on the down low
I said I love the U.S. home of Hip Hop but just Jazz Blues and Rock it got co-opted
All I’m saying is don’t see things with rosey optics
Come here get that money and give back to your continent
We agreed and we planted seeds
I wanna move to Africa and her to DC
The world is ours we both wanna be free
And everyone's at a different stage of what freedom means
So we went and got some greens and some corn bread
She down with elegba I’m down with what the Lord says
She kissed each other lightly on the forehead
And pray for the diaspora to be joyous

We all
We all
Wanna be
Young Americans
And she said
We all
We all
Wanna be
Young Americans
And she said
You got it all
You got it all
You got it all
Young Americans
And she said
You got it all
You got it all
You got it all
Young Americans

We all
We all
Wanna be
Young Americans
And she said
We all
We all
Wanna be
Young Americans
And she said
You got it all
You got it all
You got it all
Young Americans
And she said
You got it all
You got it all
You got it all
Young Americans
