The Wrong Picture

Lyrics by Constantine ♠
All rights reserved
Genre – Rap/Hip-hop

Sample Spiel:

[Intro]
The wrong picture is on the wall,
remove that painting, as it doesn’t
reflect our reality…and you know that!

[Chorus]
The wrong picture is on the wall
Your castle’s about to fall
cause your lies have gone too far
It doesn’t matter who you are
now is when you need to stop
your flip-flop, and mocking of what we do
when you know it’s not true.
Everyone’s in a state of shock
but the hands on the clock, tell
me you’re running out of time
soon everything will crumble like a shell,
so remove that picture from the wall
as you’re up to no good at all!

[Verse 1]
You talk about people hitting,
pushing , screaming
to get what they want
I don’t understand, who do you think you are?
As a child I learned to listen
to my father and mother
who taught me not to abuse power
Remember this is life, it isn’t a game
We have one single aim: “to do what’s best,”
but it’s always a battle
and maybe causes us to unravel
and sometimes lose our cool
You talk about what other people do
to get what they want, well
no one should ever need to yell
for folks to listen, that’s a matter
of respect, that no one should beg for!

In the Hood

Lyrics by Constantine ♠
All rights reserved
Genre – Rap/Hip-hop

Sample Spiel:

[Intro Verse 1]
In the hood, my neighbourhood
Where people thought I would
become only a bum or hoodlum,
I knew to ignore the stereotyping
and kept trying to beat the odds
and keep improving,
Now I travel across the globe,
And with music I deliver hope
to people of all races and colour
So that they too can
make their hoods better!

[Verse 2]
I used to think about hip hop
Tried to rap but would always drop
Off the flow, but that didn’t stop
me from trying, each morning
as I listen to another beat,
tap my feet to sync with each bar,
move my body like a superstar,
and keep believing one day
I’d make it to the top of hip hop
10 years later I’ve paid my dues
another album release with rave reviews
It may even go platinum…I’ve made a few
Now I make my return to the hood
Retracing my steps to the good
times, and the place where I stood
to formulate my first rhymes

Hold on to the Years

Lyrics by Constantine ♠
All rights reserved
Genre – Rap/Hip-hop

Sample Spiel:

[Chorus]
Hold on to the years
never let them go
But everything else you know [you hold]
let go and don’t stow
for them to grow

[Verse 1]
You have a dream I’m sure
and you continue to bargain for more
as you keep reaching to the sky
and defy all your limitations
soaring above any reservations
you have about how far you can go
discover where your talent lies
drift from the things you despise
because once you open your eyes
in the morning, your sighs and cries
will be the reminder for you to do better
but you should also be wiser
in making your choices as hope rises

Playing Tough

Lyrics by Constantine ♠
All rights reserved
Genre – Rap/Hip-hop

Sample Spiel:

[Intro]
Yes, Mr. Bigman
Playing tough
or always looking to play rough
and you know that’s not the way things go
But you just keep on playing, seen!

[Verse 1]
You claim you are the reason
The West was won, that you are
War’s only begotten son
Always quick to fight
and never interested
To make things right
But your words are contrite
You’ll run away at the first sight
of a threat or someone looking upset

[Chorus]
You believe you’re tough
Yet you’ll never stand up for anything
but yourself. That’s not enough
to earn your respect in this town
And why you’ll find yourself on your own
Just another unknown entity
in search of an identity

Give Me One Last Chance

Lyrics by Constantine ♠
All rights reserved
Genre – Rap/Hip-hop

Sample Spiel:

[Intro]
So you want to get back
Another chance to start anew
But I know you
Let’s move on, instead of us
It becomes me and you

[Hook]
Just give me one last chance
Just give me one last chance

[Verse 1]
It has been awhile
and I’m no longer a child
Nor wild, now too sly
To be pushed around
Yes, I am all grown
up, and now I may wear a frown
I know, you may not like how this sound
Just a product of the
new confidence I’ve found
So you have a choice,
Leave or stay and hear my voice
now you should think twice
About giving up without
a moment’s glance
Last time, you turned your back
Though you had the chance
To bring everything on track

The Simple Life

Lyrics by Constantine ♠
All rights reserved
Genre – Rap/Hip-hop

Sample Spiel:

[Intro]
Remember when things were simple
And weekends were for relaxation and inspiration
Talking about the simple life!

[Verse 1]
I used to wake up and exhale
And never fail to give thanks to see another day
Needless to say, nothing was too complex
Going out in the morning making another flex
But where have things now gone
What use to be true is now wrong
My life has now entered a new phase
And I want to bring back those days
When everything wasn’t about malaise
So simplicity can still amaze
And inspire the people of a nation
No indignation and hard work
is rewarded with maximum compensation
But now some new recruits
Have crossed the limit
And ridicules and insults they’ve remit
Calling us fakes, when we’re 100% legit
If we weren’t sure, on the fence we’d sit
But when you disrespect us
What a heinous crime to commit

We Can Dream

Lyrics by Constantine ♠
All rights reserved
Genre – RnB/Rap

Sample Spiel:

Kids Version—

[Intro]
Everyone has a dream
and sometimes that dream seems so far away
but we have one thing to say:

[Chorus]
We can dream
the future is within our grasp
We have the key
to open another door
We can dream once more
That’s for sure
We share this one gift
and with it
Many nations we can lift

[Verse 1]
I’m a part of a new trend
This is the message I wish to send,
And what I do makes a difference
That goes beyond
My family and friends,
When called upon,
I’ll be the one
to put forth my best
And let my talents do the rest
Then one day the world will see
That its takes only a dream
To transform one’s reality

The Mommy Song

Sample Spiels:

Original—
Remix—

[Chorus]
Mommy you’re gone, you’re gone,
but your memory lives on and on
Mommy you’re gone, you’re gone,
but your inspiration lives on

[Verse 1]
Did what you had to do
to keep us strong,
Gave us your inspiration,
Which kept us moving along.
You did what you can
And steered us from wrong,
But now you’ve moved on,
Made way for a new generation.
Yet laying the foundation
in your tracks with every lesson,
and we need no motivation
To get to our destination.
As we promised you,
We’ll always aim to do better,
no matter, what may
come our way, because of you
Our dreams can come true.

Fading into the Shadows

Lyrics by Constantine ♠
All rights reserved
Genre – RnB/Rap

Sample Spiel:

[Intro]

[Verse 1]
Fading into nothingness,
An emptiness is all I feel,
Perceived or real,
there is very little comprehension
Or anything for me to draw on,
I have no plan, no ambition
No hope, no goals to reassure me
That the future I hope to see
Will ever become my reality
Everything I accomplish,
seems to vanish
Into thin air
And all that remains is this wish
That my legacy persists.
