Shove It

This song is by Santigold and appears on the album Santogold (2008).

Brooklyn, we go hard
We on the look for the advantage, we work hard

And if we seem to rough it up a bit
We broke but we rich at heart
Pull ourselves up now we won't choke
It's our time, put the lights on us

War tactics, they make me sick
Reel your heart in, run away with it
Smile in your face, undermine your back
Got guns for the strength they lack

So if you know another way
You can't look the other way
You know another way
Tell them so right to their face

We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine
We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine
We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine
We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine

I pay for what's called eccentricity
And my wish to evolve
I hear them all say that I got heart
But not everything that it takes

Taint my mind but not my soul
Tell you I got fire
I won't sell it for no payroll
Let 'em hold me down

I know if I know another way
I can't look the other way
I know another way
I'll tell them so right to their face

We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine
We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine
We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine
We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine

Entirely, totally
Bring it all together, I want everything
Fill till this feels like hot gossip
Demand a recount, you poor folks
Waiting on a trickle with your hands out
I got to laugh at you, you call it luck
Because it wasn't due to you don't mean I'm paying dues, you stupid fuck
I'm on your mind for reaching things that you can't
Just know I'm doing something you ain't
Simple and plain

We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine
We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine
We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine
We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine

We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine
We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine
We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine
We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine
