Hennessy By The Lake

No Comments Lyrics

Must have been your brown skirt, pretty face

Something got us aligned with the universe

Sexy legs, rhythm and base

Heart pumping loud as I was introduced

Hope it wasn’t too loud I’d be so embarrassed

Acting cool but if I’m being honest

Never met anybody else so God blessed

Never anybody else caught my tracks

U where with my little brother said I wasn’t your type

A family friend so he knew what u liked

Maybe too fine

For a brother like I

Soulmates aligned

Beautiful body and mind

Chorus x2

Half a smile as I reminisce

Good memories as I take you back

What does it take (hahaha)

A sip of Hennessy by the lake

Verse 2

Your heart beat was the most beautiful

Dr Grabowska God bless her soul

Helped make your mama’s life comfortable

Wasn’t easy, the pregnancy & all

Daddy heavy in debt, money wasn’t close

Your mama throwing up every hour I’m on the phone

Family full of soldiers they all had your side

Your great grandma with you every night

Then the day came what a beautiful time

No money for hospital but, God provides

Uncles, aunties, friends, everybody

They all waited anxiously for that somebody

Cord round your leg, they had to operate

Your mama unconscious, full of grace

Thanks to the moment. Was first to see your face

Thanks for the moment Mandipa

God’s gift

Chorus x2

Half a smile as I reminisce

Good memories as I take you back

What does it take (hahaha)

A sip of Hennessy by the lake

Verse 3

They say nothing grabs a memory like a photograph

I shed a tear like I’m looking thru a time glass

All my classmates there party of the year

You took your shirt off jumped around, high on life

A true warrior, great friend, miss you man

The most honest, always seemed to have a plan

Some of us were not sure what to do on this land

A green soldier you loved animals and plants

I can’t face your mama when I pass thru your house

I wish I had done more just to show some love

I couldn’t even face your widow at your funeral

After all you did for me I wish I did some more

From the same blocks, from the same pain

You rose from the concrete like Pac man

So when my daughter says daddy who do you admire

I’ll tell her look at that picture who’s got the fire

Chorus (till fade)
