Rawk Hawks performing "The Show Goes On" on March 2 at a benefit for Roosevelt Elementary School in San Leandro.

"The Show"

Alright, already the show goes on
All night, till the morning we dream so long
Anybody ever wonder, when they would see the sun up
Just remember when you come up
The show goes on!
Alright, already the show goes on
All night, till the morning we dream so long
Anybody ever wonder, when they would see the sun up
Just remember when you come up
The show goes on!

[Lupe Fiasco Verse 1]
Have you ever had the feeling that you were being had
Don't that sh** there make you mad
They take away your classes, and cut the rich's taxes,
put it on the masses,
Be lying through their teeth
Hope you slip up off your path
I don't switch up I just laugh
Put my kicks up on their desk
Unaffected by their threats then get busy on their ass
See that's how that Cali made me
My education pays me
Not in cash but how to stand and let nobody play me
Taught me how to find the truth, and stick it in their faces
Go on and put your hands up, when times are hard you stand up
Don't believe the haters, cuz in the students we trust
Even if they ban us they'll never slow our plans up!

Alright, already the show goes on
All night, till the morning we dream so long
Anybody ever wonder, when they would see the sun up
Just remember when you come up
The show goes on!
Alright, already the show goes on
All night, till the morning we dream so long
Anybody ever wonder, when they would see the sun up
Just remember when you come up
The show goes on!

[Lupe Fiasco Verse 2]
One in the air for the people not here
Two in the air for the father that's there
Three in the air for the kids in the class
Four for the kids who wanna be there
None for the suckers trying to hold them back
Five in the air for the teacher not scared to tell those kids thats sitting in the back, trying to disappear, that the World is theirs!
Yeah yeah, the World is yours, I was once that little girl
Terrified of the World
Now I'm on a World tour
I will give up everything, even start a world war
For these little girls and boys I'm rapping round the World for!
Africa to New York, Haiti then I detour, Oakland out to Stockton
Livermore to Detroit, say hip-hop only destroys
Tell em' look at me, boy!
I got my damn degree, still rapping like a B-boy.

Alright, already the show goes on
All night, till the morning we dream so long
Anybody ever wonder, when they would see the sun up
Just remember when you come up
The show goes on!
Alright, already the show goes on
All night, till the morning we dream so long
Anybody ever wonder, when they would see the sun up
Just remember when you come up
The show goes on!

[Lupe Fiasco Verse 3]
So no matter what you been through
No matter what you into
No matter what you see when you look outside your window
Brown grass or green grass
Picket fence or barbed wire
Never ever put them down
You just lift your arms higher
Raise em till' your arms tired
Let em' know you're there
That you struggling, survivin,' that you gonna persevere
Yeah, ain't no body leavin, no body goin' home
Even if they turn the lights out the show is goin' on!

Alright, already the show goes on
All night, till the morning we dream so long
Anybody ever wonder, when they would see the sun up
Just remember when you come up
The show goes on!
Alright, already the show goes on
All night, till the morning we dream so long
Anybody ever wonder, when they would see the sun up
Just remember when you come up
The show goes on!
