Versuri K'naan - 15 Minutes Away


Yeah 
I'm sending this one out to anyone who's had to wait to wait on a money transfer 
Yeah, it's kind of whack when they charge you like 10% on the dollar 
But you know how good it feels when they say 
 
(chorus) 
You can pick it up today, it's 15 minutes away 
You can pick it up today, it's 15 minutes away 
You can pick it up today, it's 15 minutes away 
You can pick it up today, it's 15 minutes away 
 
The worst thing is the waiting, man 
It's spiritually draining 
I guess I could repaint it 
But don't think I'm complaining 
I'm in my small apartment 
This month has been the hardest 
I couldn't afford some omelets 
I'm broke like an empty promise 
Sometimes when I'm in a meeting 
And everyone else is eating 
I feel so awkward asking 
So I pretend like I am fasting 
My girl helped pay my payments 
She wants to save my anus 
She says my love's contagious 
But my pride is so outrageous 
She sent me Western Union 
So I could make it through it 
It felt so good when she said 
Write down this eleven digits 
I go out to receive it 
I'm desperate and I need it 
Feels like an angel speaking 
I can hardly believe it 
 
(chorus) 
You can pick it up today, it's 15 minutes away 
You can pick it up today, it's 15 minutes away 
You can pick it up today, it's 15 minutes away 
You can pick it up today, it's 15 minutes away 
 
You finally got a caller 
You met him in some parlor 
A tourist with a dollar 
He's some kind of a baller 
Two babies in a stroller 
And still he wants to holler 
He likes your Pepsi-Cola 
But you ain't running, Lola 
Brazil ain't nothing easy 
For Velez or fa sheezy 
The sun would make you dizzy 
Working for something measly 
These girls would make you trust 'em 
Their sweetness is their custom 
But every day they hustlin' 
Every day, they bustlin' 
John calls her with the number 
Home with her local number 
Who was it that picked up the phone 
Oh, that was just my brother 
She goes out to receive it 
She's desperate and she needs it 
It's like an angel speaking 
She can hardly believe it 
 
(chorus) 
You can pick it up today, it's 15 minutes away 
You can pick it up today, it's 15 minutes away 
You can pick it up today, it's 15 minutes away 
You can pick it up today, it's 15 minutes away 
 
I got my confirmation 
The Western Union agent 
Said Grandma's destination 
Had violent inclinations 
But now I'm proud and pacing 
And walking to the station 
Heavy percipitation 
But you can't tell me nothing 
I got my bills in order 
I made it 'cross the border 
Such dazzles, such a horror 
His life is like an opera 
Grandma, I'll never forget you 
Worry, I'll never let you 
Soon as I leave the venue 
This money I will send you 
I still haven't gone astray 
Don't drink or smoke and sway 
Though sometimes I don't pray 
It feels so good to say 
Go out and receive it 
'Cause I just know you need it 
Your boy has grown up decent 
Grandma, can you beleive it? 
 
(chorus) 
You can pick it up today, it's 15 minutes away 
You can pick it up today, it's 15 minutes away 
You can pick it up today, it's 15 minutes away 
You can pick it up today, it's 15 minutes away 
 
(Spoken) 
Yo let the beat ride out for a minute Im'ma say somethin right quick to people. I dont really do shout outs but I'm gonna do a quick shout out to the people that helped me when I was in need, you know what im sayin> The people who sent me things on Western Union what have you. You know Mahama Yuisef takin care of us numerous times when me and Rezac stuck on the road somewhere. Mr. Jarvis Church who didnt even know about Western Union til he met me. My wife Dedna helpin out when we needed her, thank you baby. Mr Solgai helpin out with my brothers bail money even before we been working together, thank you very much, Orregato I appreciate it, and now I'm sending money to people. Generosity is the key, generosity is the key. Thank you very much, Its K'Naan.
