​Family Affair

This song is by Bliss N Eso and appears on the album Running On Air (2010).

Yeah, ooh.
You've found me in a good mood, yaa little bastards.

My Grandma told me,
Do not take shit,
From anybody in this motherfucking bitch.
See, my Grandma told me,
Never never never take no shit,
Especially that shark in the dark,
'Cause that shark in the dark can suck my...
Watch your mouth!

My Grandma told me
Never ever ever take no shit
And that's probably why my Grandpa hides,
Well my Grandmas won,
My heart won't quit.

My Dad taught me how to handle the riff raff,
And Mum bought the pain,
First time I did graff,
One time for the fam' that you got,
Granny got a gun and never ran from the cops,
So I stand on this rock with a Zen mentality,
And we drift this bitch till we bend reality.
My blood bangs when I handle the beat,
So I don't bark up my family tree.

I say what you think,
But I'm not a mind reader.
I'm good to my girl,
But I wear a wife-beater.
Happy as fuck when I rap with my cause,
If you're battling him,
Then you're battling us.

A world full of wolves,
Who's the leader of the pack?
When they teach you how to act,
Try to keep you in a trap,
Conditioned till you're blue in the face,
So take it from rage,
I won't do what they say!

Because my Grandma told me,
Never never ever take no shit,
Especially that shark in the dark,
'Cause that shark in the dark can suck my...
Watch your mouth!

My Grandma told me,
Never never ever ever take no shit,
And that's probably why my Grandpa hides
Well, my Grandmas won,
My heart won't quit.

Just bob, like you're mad OMarley,
And I've finally got a job to get my Dad that Harley.
Though it's hardly a job 'cause the two forms refuses,
I'm an uncle now, with a newborn nephew.
Follows you 'round,
Broke with the bruzz.
Jam with my fam',
- With my cause,
We don't say it enough
So from all of my band,
I'm a take a second now
To give it up to all of my fans.

I just stand in the kitchen,
With a plan and a vision,
I'm a man on a mission.
With my folk on a Fridays,
Soak in the light rays,
Carolina, blue sky,
Coast on the highway.
On track, fired up and steam-powered,
Never listen to the dream-doubters at the bean counters,
Join the mental, consequential song writer
Lit the island up, like a continental bonfire

My Grandma told me
Never never never take no shit
Especially that shark in the dark,
'Cause that shark in the dark can suck my...
Watch your mouth!

My Grandma told me
Never never ever ever take no shit
And that's probably why my Grandpa hides
Well, my Grandma's won,
My heart won't quit.

26th of March,
The vision is bliss,
5: 55, on the 5th of the 5th
Eso poppin' in new years,
Flippin' the script,
It's just 380 babies chillin' in the crib,
We're not givin' a shit
So respect your elders,
The proof's in the pudding
That protects and shelters,
So tell this to the rock in your way,
I don't budge mate, you ain't got what it takes.
Got Tinkerbells magic dust and I'm saddled up,
Downed all the jam and I'm rattled up in a cattle truck,
Paint those pics with the pallet of a dreamer,
Make those sick and rally the arena,
No shit, we were revved up from the start,
To the sleepers we were the bedbugs in the dark,
In this pool won't shed blood for the sharks.
The best drug is the head rush from the art,

I remember when Grandma would make the meals
My uncle didn't like bikes with training wheels,
And me and mum would work at local markets for tax-free cash with a backseat dad,
Which makes me the man of the house,
With a girl and a great dane,
Hand me the crown,
That's Granny in the chair,
Put your hands in the air for this family affair.

Because my Grandma told me
Never never never take no shit,
Especially that shark in the dark,
'Cause that shark in the dark can suck my...
Watch your mouth!

My Grandma told me
Never never ever ever take no shit,
And that's probably why my Grandpa hides,
Well, my Grandmas won,
My heart won't quit.
