Blackalicious lyrics : "Ego Trip by Nikki Giovanni"

I was born in the congo
I walked to the fertile crescent and built
the sphinx

I designed a pyramid so tough that a star
that only glows every one hundred years falls
into the center giving divine perfect light

I am bad

I sat on the throne

drinking nectar with allah
I got hot and sent an ice age to europe
to cool my thirst

My oldest daughter is nefertiti
the tears from my birth pains
created the nile

I am a beautiful woman

I gazed on the forest and burned

out the sahara desert
with a packet of goat's meat
and a change of clothes

I crossed it in two hours
I am a gazelle so swift
so swift you can't catch me


For a birthday present when he was three
I gave my son hannibal an elephant

He gave me rome for mother's day
My strength flows ever on


My son noah built new/ark and
I stood proudly at the helm
as we sailed on a soft summer day

I turned myself into myself and was
jesus
men intone my loving name

All praises All praises
I am the one who would save


I sowed diamonds in my back yard
My bowels deliver uranium
the filings from my fingernails are

semi-precious jewels
On a trip north
I caught a cold and blew

My nose giving oil to the arab world
I am so hip even my errors are correct
I sailed west to reach east and had to round off

the earth as I went
The hair from my head thinned and gold was laid
across three continents


I am so perfect so divine so ethereal so surreal
I cannot be comprehended except by my permission


I mean...I...can fly
like a bird in the sky...
