Rap with powerpoint

  1. 1. “Bigger than You”<br />A rap by Will Regan, <br />Inspired by Mountains beyond Mountains<br />
  2. 2. Listen here, son, <br />you’ve got to learn. <br />Where I come from, <br />ain’t nothing getting done. <br />
  3. 3. I look left <br />and see a dead baby, <br />dropped by the world <br />for being too lazy. <br />To my right, <br />a momma in blood. <br />picks up her child <br />and fall back in the mud. <br />
  4. 4. Up above, <br />the Heavens are crying. <br />Their love cannot keep <br />people from dying. <br />To my back— <br />a place of disease, <br />but which is worse: <br />Ignorance or TB? <br />
  5. 5. People of the world, <br />you gotta feel <br />the pain and corruption <br />in order to heal. <br />The dirt is littered <br />with raw graffiti, <br />a bloody mixture, <br />the texture of Haiti. <br />
  6. 6. Stop being stupid! <br />Stop being a tool! <br />Don’t be one of those <br />selfish fools <br />who sits back <br />while illness attacks. <br />Boy, this shit is<br />badly out of wack. <br />
  7. 7. Do you hear the heartbeat <br />of the dying wife? <br />Do you taste the passion <br />of fighting for one’s life? <br />Is the Golden Rule <br />in your heart? <br />Can you feel the rhythm? <br />Are you ready to start? <br />
  8. 8. With my head held high <br />and eyes on the sky, <br />I’ma feel the beat <br />and recognize <br />that on this path <br />my soul will ignite, <br />absorb the heat, <br />fight for what’s right. <br />
  9. 9. So I’ma start walking, <br />doing my part. <br />Sure ain’t much, <br />but at least it’s a start. <br />I’ll help people <br />while my body is grooving. <br />Even in adversity, <br />I’ll never stop moving! <br />
  10. 10. Rap this song, brother, <br />& feel the fire. <br />Take an overdue cue <br />from the choir. <br />One—Two— <br />This is bigger than you. <br />
