We Intend To Cause Havoc

Who took fabric, made that shit classic?
That shit ain't average, we did! (Never forget)
Who did music, made that shit language
African branded? We did! (Never forget)
Who took movement, spirit included
Made it a movement? We did! (Never forget)
Who's the origin, straight from the soul and then
Redistributed? Who did? (Never forget)

Future, ancient answers that were never given
Information passed down for genеration
Future, ancient answers that wеre never given
They will never forget

Eya (Iyo nkanda yako ni nyali)
Eya (Ndiwe mfumu lelo osaibala)
Iyo nkanda yako ni nyali
Ndiwe mfumu lelo osaibala
Iyo nkanda yako ni nyali
Ndiwe mfumu lelo osaibala, yeah

(Yes, Young chef, we all over)
Fititi inkanda, umushishi ni nappy, yeah
Konse twanyanta, umushili we mark, yeah
Enginila, dokotela wa first afuma kwesu (Kwesu)
Kubufumu nobukumu fyonse fyatula kwesu
Ubunonshi mucitundu (Then), mufundo mumushili (Then)
Ma values yacimuntu, ubafunde umushili (Hah!)
Battle rapping in form of ifishobo (Ifishobo)
Twafyambile kale ifwe, enh, teti uncaile showboat
(Young Chef, we all over)
[Chorus: Mwanje]
Future, ancient answers that were never given
Information passed down for generation
Future, ancient answers that were never given
They will never forget
Eya, eya, eh

Never forget that I said it
If ever they ever had shown you the way then I paved it
Say that I said it
They passed the baton I pushed on, now we on
Now we made it, now, mama, we made it
The reason they higher (Higher)
Fuck what they told you, my calling is higher
There is no proof I require (Require)
Begin and end, ain't no way I retire
Please do not come here again
Please do not call me your friend
Please do not rewrite my history, take out my victory, claiming my pen
I will not say it again, you will remember the name
Sampa The Great is the greatest, I will not debate it
I thought that I said it, it's never... forget!
