      Estelle - 1980 Música y Letra

      I grew up in the 1980's
      In a 4-bedroom house
      My family, my Grandma,
      3 or 4 Aunties
      Uncles and Brothers
      In and out of prison daily
      At certain times when there was no heat
      We stay under covers
      There was life like u never seen
      Grandma taking extra people in 
      Come dinner time It was tippin' 18
      Boil a big pot of water on the stove to take a bath
      Rub my face with Olive Oil
      All my mates used to laugh
      All my Cousin's moved out 
      We all got divided
      As i started to get older I seen God providing
      I've seen £50 last 3 months solid
      I got my first pair of nikes we were still eating porridge
      Me and my cousin used to play Mel & Kim
      Practising dancin' 
      Coming down the stairs and ting
      I touched Africa and came back darker
      Knowing myself 
      Feeling my roots a little bit harder
      
      [Chorus x2]
      1980 year that God made me
      89 i started to get by
      99 i started to write rhymes
      walk with me reminice my life
      So then we moved up 
      I thought I was the Fresh Prince
      Dynasty was re-runs and Dallas was faded
      With 3 beds this time and 6 kids
      we got a doggy that dog loved to shit
      My brother got his first pair of LA Gears
      He thought they were to take pictures of instead of wear
      I started hanging out and my jeans got tighter
      My weird neighbours set their own house on fire
      Church was All day every day and every week 
      That's where i learned how to sing
      Hearing that pastor Preach
      Benediction was all we went for
      So we could run home and play connect 4
      Mum worked late and we learnt to cook
      Rice peas chicken and stew pea soup
      In the room watching Kung-Fu films
      And Cleopatra joans
      Wishing we were cosby kids and the match stick girls.
      
      [Chorus x2]
      
      The man downstairs was dead for 3 weeks
      His own cat started eating him
      The house starts to wreak
      That's when we moved out
      And our house was bigger
      We had a large garage and the attic was killer 
      We used to pray for 3 hours in the mornin'
      Sitting on the school bus 
      Believe we was yawning
      All our hair was stuck down to our foreheads
      Jam curls, splits, dorags and pin curls yes
      Sexy boys walking round showing interest
      In what i don't know coz we all had flat chests
      Don't think we never mastered the Kid n Play steps
      Doowop for days in the bogle yep
      But this is just the beginning of my life right,
      9 kids a house and one life time
      Yo, the beginning of my life right
      9 kids a house in one life time
      
      [Chorus x2]
