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

Your Best Friend

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

Sample Spiel:

[Verse 1]
Your best friend has her eyes on me
ever since she moved back to the city
sometime last September
she’s been trying to get closer
every time you’re not around
calls my phone, talks to me in a silky tone
saying she likes my name
and wonder if we could go out
but no, that wasn’t my game
still she had no doubt
she can move in with only an alibi
but she would not be the first to try
I can’t say why, but they like my easy style
and everywhere I go, beautiful women
greet me with their smile,
but I’ve never been a player,
I’m a true romantic forever
so I stay true to my one and only
so that’s why I’m telling you

All rights reserved
Genre – RnB/Rap

Sample Spiel: 

[Intro]
Hey Dad, how are you doing?
Just thought I’d give you a call…
a quick call to let you know that
I appreciate all you’ve done for me over the years.
I might not always show it,
but that doesn’t mean I don’t care.
just remember…I’ll always love you, dad!

[Chorus]
I say fathers we must be strong
so fathers across the lands
let’s stand as one mind to find
truth and reconciliation
so that we can nurture the upcoming generation
so fathers across the lands
let’s join hands
let’s join hands, wherever you stand!
let’s join hands…

Can’t Stop Being Me

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

Sample Spiel: 

[Intro]
Everyone has some form of vision
of where they want to be or
what they want to achieve
and to get there, all they need is belief
in being themselves more than anything else…

[Verse 1]
I am like everyone else
Yet I want to be different
can’t you see…
One day to live my passion
Be the person everyone else
Would like to be, like in a movie
Wanna see my name in the spotlight
A vision that keeps me up at night
Seems like a crazy idea, but to me
As realistic as the air I breathe
But that which I cannot see
Something’s always there
To push me on when I want
to throw my hands in the air
But that’s not me and it’s
So plain to see
I can be no one else
I am just being me

You’ve got to groove it
