If I Ruled The World
If I ruled the world, was king on the throne
I’d make peace in every culture, build the homeless a home
I’m not running for Congress or the President
I’m just here, to tell the world, how my story went
If I ruled the world (Imagine that)
I’d free all my sons, I love em love em baby
Black diamonds and pearls (Could it be, if you could
Be mine, we’d both shine)
If I ruled the world (Still living for today, in
These last days and times)
The way to be, paradise like relaxing black, Latino and Anglo-Saxon
Armani Exchange deranged
Cash, Lost Tribe of Shabazz, free at last
Brand new whips to crash then we laugh in the iller path
The Villa house is for the crew, how we do
Now I rule the world and now, I’m on top
And I’m rolling with folks that could never be stopped
And I’m here to let you know this is where I belong
And to you sucker MC’s that sing my song
And it’s a song that’s strong about right and wrong
