lyrics

Aprann Konnen (To Learn How to Know)


1
You have to live in misery
to talk about misery
When I tell you that I’m hungry,
you know what that feels like
You have to live in wealth to talk about wealth
Or else any little bit of money could shock you
You have to live in love to know what love is
When you see me on my knees,
don’t run and say that I’m crazy
No, I’m not crazy… No, I’m not crazy
You could say I’m crazy ,
no I’m not crazy, no I’m not crazy

2
You have to live together as an unmarried couple
to know the details of the home
If the person sometimes flies into a rage,
you’ll avoid marriage
You have to be a pest to live with
a person who’s a pest
They have so many flaws,
this punishment can tangle your hair
You shouldn’t look at this brother’s hair
And go and say he’s a good rasta a a a a
He might not be a rasta, not a rasta
Saying he’s a rasta, he might not be a rasta,
not a rasta

Refrain:
You have to understand
Don’t ever say you won’t learn
If it’s not your head you have to cut cut cut cut
To put in it, to put in it, to put in it

3
You have to live in the ghetto
to know the lives of guys in the ghetto
The reality of their life
is not the same as the people up above
And there is no water that
can give them stomach aches
Two days without food
won’t mess up their insides
They’re not going to the club,
they’re not into fun
The DJ plays, but they’re going to
a very different party instead
Ghetto guys, ghetto guys
Respect to them, ghetto guys, ghetto guys

4
You have to live in debauchery
to have a hole in your pocket
Waking up the next morning
with your shoes on the wrong feet
You’ve decided to waste your life
So discouraged, you want to leave school
It’s bad experiences that
can give your life some sense
You have to live with hope –
this life is a game of patience
Game of patience, game of patience [repeat]

Refrain
