lyrics

Gad On’Rev (Keep it in your dreams)


1
Non non , non non non ye… non non
Merchant, how much does a crib cost
I’m going to be a father real soon
This news made my blood pressure rise:
I don’t even have a job,
This is so tough ooo
I just took my high school final exams
Now all my plans have fallen in the water
Soon my woman will be laying on her back
Oh I’ll have to rethink things
I don’t know what I’ll tell my mom,
She’ll think I’m a thug
That I spent all my time with the ladies
She won’t be scared to break my teeth
and she’ll kick me out
I don’t even need to waste my time asking

Refrain:
All my friends are here
I see them all here, they’re all candidates [repeat]
Wanito I want to be the godfather
Please please please let me be the godfather
Wanito I want to be the godmother
Please please please let me be the godmother

I go to Aunt Locita’s house
She lives in Delma 33
When I tell her what happened,
she gets so angry
She says if I got a woman pregnant,
then I must have my life in order
I run across the street
I just feel so upside down
Cars are honking at me but I don’t pay attention
I’m thinking about the baby
I find out her mother kicked her out too
I go with her to the countryside
to find a better life
When I get there they give me a machete
A bed with four stakes,
a one-room house with no windows
My girl starts crying
She watches me taking care of the garden,
planting corn
The sun is hot and my body hurts
Ants bite me, I have no friends to help me

That’s when she tells me she has labor pains
She lays down on her bed of leaves, that’s where she’ll have the baby
I put my hands to my head and start yelling

That’s when I woke up - I had been sleeping
Keep this in your dreams, young men
This was a nightmare, young men
When I woke up I was delivered young men, young men
There are so many men who would have been happy, young men
If it was really just a dream for them, young men
Remember this epitome of a nightmare, young men, young men, young men

Refrain

3
Thanks to God this didn’t really happen
I’m not ready to have a child yet, you hear
Someday when I have money
I won’t be afraid to have a beautiful child, you hear
I won’t have a hot head
Instead, I’ll be celebrating, and all my friends are invited
And then you can pull me to the side and say:
When is he going to be baptized, this godchild is mine.
