Janelle Monáe – Q.U.E.E.N. feat. Erykah Badu [Official Video]
Are we a lost generation of our people? Add us to equations but they’ll never make us equal She who writes the movie owns the script and the sequel So why ain’t the stealing of my rights made illegal? They keep us underground working hard for the greedy But when it’s time pay they turn around and call us needy My crown too heavy like the Queen Nefertiti Gimme back my pyramid, I’m trying to free Kansas City Mixing masterminds like your name Bernie Grundman Well I’m gonna keep leading like a young Harriet Tubman You can take my wings but I’m still goin’ fly And even when you edit me the booty don’t lie Yeah, keep singing and I’mma keep writing songs I’m tired of Marvin asking me, What’s Going On? March to the streets cause I’m willing and I’m able Categorize me, I defy every label And while you’re selling dope, we’re gonna keep selling hope We rising up now, you gotta deal you gotta cope Will you be electric sheep? Electric ladies, will you sleep? Or will you preach?
