Jay Z lyrics to new song about his daughter



Jay-Z Ė Glory Lyrics (feat. Blue Ivy Carter)

The most amazing feeling I feel,
Words canít describe what Iím feeling for real
Baby, I paint the sky blue,
My greatest creation was you
You, you, glory

False alarms and false starts
All made better by the sound of your heart
All the pain of the last time
I prayed so hard it was the last time
Your mama said you danced for her
Did you wiggle your hands for her?
Glory, Glory, Glory

Sorry, Everything that I prayed for
Godís gift I wish I woulda prayed more
God makes no mistakes, I made a few
Rough sled in here and there but I made it through
I wreak havoc on the world
Get ready for part two
A younger, smarter, faster me
So a pinch of Hov, a whole glass of B

Glory, yeah


The most amazing feeling I feel,
Words canít describe what Iím feeling for real
Baby, I paint the sky blue,
My greatest creation was you

Your grand pop died of liquor failure
Then he died of liver failure
Deep down he was a good man
God damn I canít deliver failure
Bad ass little Hov,
Two years old shopping on Saville Row
Wicked ass little Bey, hard not to spoil you rotten, looking like little me
The most beautiful-est thing in this world,
Is Daddyís little girl.
You donít yet know what swag is

But you was made in Paris and mama woke up the next day and shot her album package
Last time the miscarriage was so tragic,
We was afraid you disappeared but nah baby, you magic
So there you have it, sh-t happens
Just make sure the plane you on is bigger than your carry-on baggage
Everybody goes through stuff
Life is a gift, love
Open it up
Youíre a child of destiny
Youíre the child of my destiny
Youíre my child with the child from destinyís child
Thatís a hell of recipe
Glory, glory, glory sorry

Glory, uh, yeah

The most amazing feeling I feel,
Words canít describe what Iím feeling for real
Baby, I paint the sky blue,
My greatest creation was you

Re: Jay Z lyrics to new song about his daughter

Is this the first rap song without the female being referred to as "bitch" or "ho" ?

Re: Jay Z lyrics to new song about his daughter

My 3 favorite verses

Your grand pop died of liquor failure
Then he died of liver failure
Deep down he was a good man
God damn I canít deliver failure

But you was made in Paris and mama woke up the next day and shot her album package
Last time the miscarriage was so tragic,
We was afraid you disappeared but nah baby, you magic
So there you have it, sh-t happens


Youíre a child of destiny
Youíre the child of my destiny
Youíre my child with the child from destinyís child
Thatís a hell of recipe

Re: Jay Z lyrics to new song about his daughter

I posted this on Steve Hoffman forum and got called an "old white guy", was accused of a thinly veiled attack aginst one of the most successful artists of our time and was asked if I would have posted this if Van Morrison wrote it. I guess dumbass lyrics are cool with the politically correct crowd over there as long as they're from an "urban" artist.

Will his new name be Lay-Z after that? He could come up with something better than that without sleeping for days.

Re: Jay Z lyrics to new song about his daughter

Wow, that is terrible. Even worse coming on the heels of a pretty decent effort with Kanye. He sounded revitalized on that album.

Re: Jay Z lyrics to new song about his daughter

Rims
Cars
Money (living it up)
Gold chains
Ho's
Hard times in the past
Pimping
Dealing
Clubbing
Drugs

Funny how there are so many songs about so few subjects.

Re: Jay Z lyrics to new song about his daughter

I don't get it. How is this worse than any other rap song ever recorded? I assume there are lots of "hey-Ohs!" and arm waving?

Re: Jay Z lyrics to new song about his daughter

But the big question, did he close the entire floor, confiscate all cell phones and spend $1.3M while writing the song. C'mon, inquiring minds want the gossip!

Probably. He co-wrote it with Beyonce while the mother of their child was giving birth (if you are to believe the rumors that Beyonce was never pregnant and their child was born through a surrogate).

The song:


And randomly, an MC Hammer track dissing Jay-Z. It's not a response to this Jay-Z track, but it's fun to pretend it is.

Calling someone "an old white guy" at the SHF is like calling Wesley Snipes "a negro".

It's pretty bad, even for Jay-Z.

Was Will Smith's "Two of us" that much better?

I think it's clear who the actual "old white guy" is here.

Re: Jay Z lyrics to new song about his daughter

Jay-Z has never been known as a master words man, has he? He's been known to bite other rappers lyrics for years. He's had a lot of ghostwriters, too.

This song was awful, but it just showcases his true songwriting abilities.

The correct answer here is Leonard Cohen. I am singing these verses in his voice, to the tune of Chelsea Hotel. Tell me it isn't brilliant now...

Your grand pop died of liquor failure
Then he died of liver failure
Deep down he was a good man
God damn I canít deliver failure

But you was made in Paris and mama woke up the next day and shot her album package
Last time the miscarriage was so tragic,
We was afraid you disappeared but nah baby, you magic
So there you have it, sh-t happens


Youíre a child of destiny
Youíre the child of my destiny
Youíre my child with the child from destinyís child
Thatís a hell of recipe

Re: Jay Z lyrics to new song about his daughter

Am I the only person who thinks jay-z is a terrible rapper? I like rap, but he leaves me cold. Calculated commercial beats and no real flow. I think I'm gong to get really sick hearing about this kid, too. So his dick works, big deal.

Jay isn't a terrible rapper but I have never thought of him as someone who stood out from the rest. I like his music and think he is very talented but his style doesn't distinguish himself from other great rappers IMO.
