lyrics

Nine long months you effortlessly carried me
Took care of me in every way — you were there for me
When fame & fortune didn’t really fare too well for me
You reminded me what mattered most was in my heart & in my soul

In my head I’m in control
I got this 'cause you got me from day 1
You never let me down
Or let me go
No nincompoop
No imbecile
Sensationalist Twitter troll
Could get to me
Not being offended has been my specialty
Nobody effing with this pedigree
A soldier of composure
The example that you’ve shown to me
Has only grown in scope as you grow older
A glory of a sight to be beholding
Allahi 6awwil 3umrek
Te Amo
Yamo

Yamo I know your love’s simply immeasurable
For you I’d buy the world, for you I’d let it go
Something tells me I’ll never really get it though
How much you’ve sacrificed
Its just incredible

Yamooo ... Yamooo
Ya sit il7abayeb Yamo
Yamooo ... Yamooo
Ya sit il7anayen Yamo

Shami men
Been bombarded & scarred
Guarded & hardened
Still ... our tongues aren’t barbed
No we talk sweet
Make the heart weep
Soft speech — but the bark reach.
Speaking it simple yet the thoughts deep
Working hard so we aren’t cheap
Sparking heat — Grilling, chilling,
Eating charred leaf
Leaving a portion aside to feed the hungry
Bonded from the start
By true love for our moms in every heartbeat

Yamo I know your love’s simply immeasurable
For you I’d buy the world, for you I’d let it go
Something tells me I’ll never really get it though
How much you’ve sacrificed christ its just incredible

Yamooo ... Yamooo
Ya sit il7abayeb Yamo
Yamooo ... Yamooo
Ya sit il7anayen Yamo

*Yamo is the first & last thing I say on this album.
