Lyrics

Verse 1:

Times change so do meanings\
What used to be foul is now a greeting\
Just happened, couldn't really tell you why\ All I know is I been saying 'nigga' all my life\ And never once thought about slavery\ It was just something all my cousins would say to me\ And my friends too, at least the black ones\ My white friends wouldn't dare say that one\ And that's just how a nigga been livin'\ I don't understand all this extra friction\ People hurt people not words\ To try and ban a word is kinda absurd\ But I get it, I just seen 12 Years A Slave\ And seen how how white folks used to behave\ But I guess I kinda see it like aikido\ Turn something ugly and change it to something beautiful\ Uh huh, take something ugly and change it something beautiful\ That's right, take something ugly and change it to something beautiful\

We've come so far now, Give it up, Give it up\
We've come so far now, Give it up, Give it up Now\
We've come so far now, Give it up, Give it up\
We've come so far now, Give it up, Give it up Now\
We've come so far now, Give it up, Give it up\
We've come so far now, Give it up, Give it up Now\

Verse 2:
I don't know if you seen the banner\
But It seems like America's getting tanner\
So give it up, give it up\
Loving that applause, that's what's up , that's what's up\
I mean, not to be cocky, but really how could you knock me\
Done watch me people from nothing, move to the top of the rocky\
And now we taking it global from Kansas to Kawasaki\
And we came a long way, really what you gotta say\ (Nigga)

Bridge:

We've come so far now\

We've come so far now\

We've come so far now\

We've come so far now\ Give It Up, Give It Up Now
