Fight Songs

  1. Goal Horn and Goal Song

    “Black Skinhead” by Kanye West

    For my theme song, my leather black jeans on
    My by any means on, pardon I’m getting my scream on
    Enter the kingdom but watch who you bring home
    They see a black man with a white woman at the top floor they gone come to kill King Kong
    Middle America packed in, came to see me in my black skin
    Number one question they asking. Fuck every question you asking
    If I don’t get ran out by Catholics, here come some conservative Baptists
    Claiming I’m overreacting like them black kids in Chiraq bitchFour in the morning, and I’m zonin’
    They say I’m possessed, it’s an omen
    I keep it 300, like the Romans
    300 bitches, where’s the Trojans?
    Baby we livin’ in the moment
    I’ve been a menace for the longest
    But I ain’t finished I’m devoted
    And you know it, and you know itSo follow me up cause this shit’s about to go down
    I’m doin’ 500, I’m outta control now
    But there’s nowhere to go, now
    And there’s no way to slow down
    If I knew what I knew in the past
    I would have been blacked out on your assFour in the mornin’, and I’m zonin’
    They say I’m possessed, it’s an omen
    I keep it 300, like the Romans
    300 bitches, where’s the Trojans?
    Baby we livin’ in the moment
    I’ve been a menace for the longest
    But I ain’t finished, I’m devoted
    And you know it, and you know itStop all that coon shit, early morning cartoon shit
    This is that goon shit, fuck up your whole afternoon shit
    I’m aware I’m a wolf, soon as the moon hit
    I’m aware I’m a king, back out the tomb bitch
    Black out the room bitch, stop all that coon shit
    These niggas ain’t doin’ shit, them niggas ain’t doin’ shit
    Come on, homie, what happened?
    You niggas ain’t breathing you gasping
    These niggas ain’t ready for action
    (Ready, ready for action)

    Four in the mornin’, and I’m zonin’
    I think I’m possessed, it’s an omen
    I keep it 300, like the Romans
    300 bitches, where’s the Trojans?
    Baby we’re livin’ in the moment
    I’ve been a menace for the longest
    But I ain’t finished, I’m devoted
    And you know it, and you know it

    So follow me up cause this shit’s about to go down
    I’m doin’ 500, I’m outta control now
    But there’s nowhere to go, now
    And there’s no way to slow down

    I would’ve been blacked out on your ass
