Witness to History Lyrics


STREETSINGER
Yeah, they say if you were in attendance that
night, then you, my friend, were a witness to
history. Ah, but with a touch of mystery.
You see, before her final bow, Brooklyn would always sing the "unfinished lullaby"

BROOKLYN
La la la la, la la, la la la la,
La la la...

STREETSINGER
...though she would never sing the words.

person knew the words and she longed to
hear his voice sing them back to her. So
Brooklyn would us her new found fame in
America to call for her father. Ah, but fame
in the land of the pilgrim's pride ain't no fairy

PARADICE

STREETSINGER
A force of nature, a natural born world
shaker. Born on Mean Street right across
from Ugly Road, honed on hustle, raised on
riot. Educated in the Red Hook projects, got
her Ph.D. in survival, and would to whatever
it takes to remain America's diva of the
decade. Oh, and people, let me tell you,
don'tchu ever musspell her name, that's
P.a.r.a...

PARADICE
...d.i.c.e 'cause I was born on with nothin' but a
pair-a-dice around my neck. And from that
pair-a-dice, I built me a paradise. And no one...
