​Inshallah

This song is by Goodie Mob and appears on the album Still Standing (1998).

Original video
How can I promise you forever
When I can't even promise the rest of the day?
All I know is we started this journey together
And hopefully we can make it the rest of the way

Inshallah
Inshallah, Inshallah, Inshallah
Inshallah
Inshallah, Inshallah, Inshallah

Yeah, dialect kinda slurred
Did you catch that word blurred
Talk slow, walk slow
And years passed
Make that cash
Never took a second look
Follow the words in the book
Watch 'em chill and cook
Somethin' new for your ears, bro
Sing-along
Same sing-song
Wantin' to bail out the front door
Which you lookin' at me more
I can show you shit that you never seen before
Crushed ice for cold drinks
Surely makin' music for the worldly
And the people in it
If you gotta spin it
Life is only five minutes

We got contrabanded
I recite about bein' free
Only to a certain extent
In a country run by a president

That doesn't know a single resident
In my 'hood, it this good
Or that is fucked-up
I let 'em speak for me
Break bread and peace treaty
Across seas ?????
Till the feds get it and split it
With other federals
And ????? agents and senators and representatives that live off us

And feed off us
For new ideas for years
Niggaz been raped
Let's escape
This dope
But how?
When it's locked into our chemistry for
'Cause nigga that's all we know
That's how we grow, uh

How can I promise you forever
When I can't even promise the rest of the day?
All I know is we started this journey together
And hopefully we can make it the rest of the way

Inshallah
Inshallah, Inshallah, Inshallah
Inshallah
Inshallah, Inshallah, Inshallah

Remember me, I explain
Our relentlesship while true made me get the grain?
And I refuse to settle
Well except the simple and plain
I'd much rather excite, delight and entertain

Passionately persistant
When I preach this positivity
For stand up God, write hard things I like to say
And our words don't take a chance
See if I can make y'all dance
But I really ain't got that much time to play

Just row your little boat down the stream
Go slow 'cause life is only a dream
And if I should die before I awake
I leave to all my beloved this message to take, ah

The merciful
Lord of worlds
Master of the days of judgment
Guide me on the path
Upon those who you bestowed your favors
Not upon those who your wrath has brought down
Nor on those who go astray after hearing your teachings

Confidence shot
Selfless thing go extremely
Contageous flavor
Distributed in major
Tomatoes with juice chances of prostate cancer
Disease is fictitious
Never abandon your Emmanuel
For want of religion kept peasants 180
Just got back from what it ain't nothin' but gamblin'
In the pockets scramblin' to avoid the sack

I'm seldom seen
'Cause I'm on the label
No dis, boneless fingers go from
For the one
In a matter of tone a target of
Since sense has made me enemies

It has performance in demand
Violence, a tradition in the Western Hemisphere
Claim jumpers and land jackers

How can I promise you forever
When I can't even promise the rest of the day?
All I know is we started this journey together
And hopefully we can make it the rest of the way

Inshallah
Inshallah, Inshallah, Inshallah
Inshallah
Inshallah, Inshallah, Inshallah
