(Assalti Frontali)
For Women
(Talib Kweli)


Il pezzo è tratto dall'album AP2P (All power to the people), collaborazione tra i rapper M1 (Dead Prez) e Bonnot.

In questa canzone sentiamo anche Militant A (Assalti Frontali) e Talib Kweli (del cui contributo non ho trovato trascrizione, e la mia conoscenza dell'american english in versione rap, ha, come dire, delle lacune. Evidentemente non sono il solo.)

Lo inserisco come autore a parte, che mi sembra la cosa più sensata.

IMF, World Bank, What it look like?
in your suit and your tie looking' crook-like
yeah your wife better hold her pocketbook tight
if you slip one time then its goodnight
Yeah you know what you stole from us
bank roll and my gold and stuff
Rolls Royce looking' old and plush
damn right Imma hold you up
ski mask, gold teeth all you gon' see
and you lucky if I let yo ass go free
let you feel what its like on a cold street
and you never really get to know me
Shed tears like you learned enough
i don't think so, earn my trust
Feel the heat, Imma turn it up
Dolla bill, imma burn it up.

There is price to pay
For taken' it all from me,
Me and my army
We taken' it back!

They know,
its not about money
We takin' it back!
(Bring my shit back, bring my shit back!)

Militant A

Non va più tanto Ghandi e nemmeno l'India
Non va Mao e in Cina la corporation brinda
Obama trama insieme a Standard & Poor's
Va solo il mio microfono, un vecchio Shure
E adesso io voglio convincervi
Di quanto è alto il grido AP2P
E c'è qualcosa di nuovo nell'aria
quanto ne abbiamo bisogno in Italia
Se tu lo fai lo sai, noi siamo il 99
Se tu lo fai lo sai, noi non molliamo mai
Abbiamo tutti i sensi allertati
coordinamenti collettivi comitati illuminati
siamo decisi
più sono ricchi più gridano è crisi
noi non vogliamo il nuovo piccolo suv
vogliamo il 99 che monta su sto groove


Its an inside job, don't believe me?
you believe everything on on the TV
and them fake ass raps on ya CD
no wonder why we aint never been free
See through all them lies they tell
Thats me, who they tried to sell
PP's who they hide in jail
Flame on, hope they fry in hell
Put yo money bags down 'fore I make change
They a bunch of vampires and I hate fangs
Cant think for thyself cuz it take brains
Imma kick a bunch of ass, then take names
Can't you see we done had enough
times up, Imma call your bluff
Too long we done had it rough
Dollar Bill, Imma burn it up!

They know,
its not about money
We takin' it back!
(Bring my shit back, bring my shit back!)
