Hyperaptive – London City Lyrics

Hook:

I live in a place, called London City
Where the people are nice, in the community
Everyone’s polite, “Yes thank you sir that’s spiffing!”
Everybody’s nice. It’s really quite pretty !

Verse 1:

Welcome to London, where daddy’s are gone, and mum is on benefits!
Where we jam on estates, and bill up our spliffs, to clear out our head-of-it
Riot the streets for the hell-of-it
Robbery’s just become part of the etiquette!
Of every side of the town, and we all give less of a f*ck than celibates!
Such a lovely place, full of such wonderful characteristics
Especially when you combine, the murderous rise, in stabbing-statistics
Gone are the days of tea we’d gently sip whilst having-our-biscuits
Instead it’s a whirlwind of crime, where half of the minds, are animalistic!
See if you get mugged with knives, now, it’s nobody’s great-suprize
What with the rate estates-arise
Just leave the poverty placed-aside
While drugs and crime incase-their-lives
Labeled as kids who just hate-to-strive
And hey-suprize!
“Why even bother to change this shit’? Is what they-surmise!……

Verse 2:

Home of the Queen’s English language, that nobody-speaks!
“Wagwan blad, man ain’t got crow this week, it’s overly-peak!”
Huddled inside your blocks, talking like life is totally-bleak
With everyone living off benefits, claiming for job seekers when nobody-seeks!
Meanwhile it’s glitz and glam, all lavish and luxury out-of-the-ends
Just watch what luxury you bring with you if you’re south-of-the-thames!
“Cause us man are looking for brehs like you to rob if we’re out-of-the-pen!
We’re all in this shit together, the government screwed us, it’s out of our power-to-mend!”
Yet to school and work most of the hood voluntarily stays-aloof
It’s all about robbing and shotting for p’s and acting like brazen-troops!
Just cotch and blaze-a-zoot
f*ck some chicks and raise-a-yute
Jam in the blocks that cage-your-group
And watch as the city replays-the-loop!!

Hook:

I live in a place, called London City
Where the people are nice, in the community
Everyone’s polite, “Yes thank you sir that’s spiffing!”
Everybody’s nice. It’s really quite pretty!
