Burna Boy – Glory Lyrics

Burna Boy Glory Lyrics (feat. Ladysmith Black Mambazo)

Indaba yami le (Indaba yami le, this is my story)
Indaba yami le (Indaba yami le, this is my story)
Ngiphakamise, this is my story (Ngiphakamise)
Hold me, ah (Hold me)
This is my story
Indaba yami le (Indaba yami le, this is my story)
Indaba yami le (Indaba yami le, this is my story)
Ngiphakamise (Ngiphakamise)
Ngiphakamise (Ngiphakamise, this is my story)
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday, dear Damini
Happy birthday to you
How old are you now?
(Oh, man)

(Glory, yeah) Glory, yeah
Like the last time that you’ll ever see me, hold me, ah
Lately, I’ve been fucked up, been havin’ a hard time
Like back when my dawg died
Felt my heart split apart like apartheid
I could have survived, thug life full of carbine
Hold it down, I was sentenced by the crown
And I never used to smile, though I never used to frown
Ten toes on the ground
What the hell? My life came turnin’ around
From runnin’ wild in my town to the glory

Hold me, ah (Ngiphakamise)
This is my story, yeah (Indaba yami le)
(Glory, yeah) Glory, yeah
Like the last time that you’ll ever see me, hold me, ah

I remember when they shipped me from the cans
To Chelmsford HMP and my celly had it bad
So I had to have his back, n***** started fightin’
And then they cut me on my hand
So I grabbed one from the back and I flung him off the landing
You know the screws get extra ruthless when you’re Black
Layin’ on my back, now the block’s feelin’ mad
Now I’m in the lab, tryna do the best I can

Hold me, ah
This is my story, yeah
Glory, yeah
Like the last time that you’ll ever see me, hold me, ah

Said, first things first
Haffi let you know that I been bad since birth
I heard it from the nurse
Lookin’ and went searchin’ through trials that occurred
Then I started workin’ twice as hard
Havin’ nightmares of the day I fall off
But I stick around like herpes, I ain’t lettin’ up
Bring harmonies just like Bone Thugz, ooh

Hold me, ah
This is my story, yeah
Glory, yeah
Like the last time that you’ll ever see me, hold me, ah
Glory, yeah

Indaba yami le (Glory)
This is my story (Glory)
Indaba yami le (Glory)
This is my story (Glory)
Indaba yami le (Glory)
This is my story (Glory)
Indaba yami le (Glory)
This is my story (Okay, alright, on three)
