About The Song

This song is a Hip Hop & R&B single celebrating the city of London in the United Kingdom. It was created purely out of my love for this great city ours, my home, the city of my adolescents.  It seemed as though it isn’t celebrated enough and is under appreciated by its inhabitant & outsiders.  Therefore, I decided to highlight some of the better things about London England, what it is all about and why it’s one of the greatest cities in the world. It is a mellow song with passionate word play, flavour and mesmerizing vocals by none other than Leslie Carron. The swinging drums and the mellow smooth tones of singing that’s powerful yet subtle accompanied by a rap flow that’s relaxed yet forceful reflects the ambiance of the rich tones and cultures London brings to the world.

LYRICS

Verse 1

khaki & jeans so they think I’m from Compton,

Brit boy clean man I grew up in London,

city of dreams, the city of the queen

but I Am King, Z-Ziion I’m him!

& I walk like I talk, talk with a lean

they thought I was finished when I’ve only just began,

they all about the Benjamins we stacking sterlings

pound for pound London town comes around we weight in!

I don’t gang bang but buddy my beats bang!

I got their hands up like it’s a robbery attempt,

no dragons in the dungeon we’re 3 lions in the den,

he’s strapping & measures up

so you ain’t regulating him!

We R.A.F. we fly higher cause were royal,

leave em D.O.A were forceful with the fortune,

we B.B.C, us broadcasting is crucial,

trust cuzzy,

ain’t nothing but love when we come thru

 

Chorus

London, our streets are paved with gold, 

let everybody know!

London, this city will take you high,

bring all your dreams to life,

London, our streets are paved with gold, 

let everybody know,

London this city will take you high,

bring all your dreams to life.

 

Verse 2

Where’s Brixton at? Where’s Ealing at?

Where’s Tottenham? where’s all my New Hammers at?

You know them boys could run up on you like their acrobats,

But we lords, therefore, we aint promoting that,

capital L., capital city, the capital’s with me,

I keep my mind on my money

cause we need capital to build an empire,

the kingdom requires gentlemen of a certain attire,

I heard through the wire the girls be on fire,

Flash your lighter, better yet flash your phone,

We gon light the city up let them know that we’re on

So solid, boy better know where second to none,

Fully Focus equals a brighter future big tings a gwan

I’m tellin you don, this is the beginning of a new era,

all eyes on the Brits because we flow better,

things will change up quick

just like the British weather

& we’re reining again so get your umbrellas

 

Chorus

London, our streets are paved with gold,

let everybody know,

London this city will take you high,

bring all your dreams to life,

London, our streets are paved with gold,

let everybody know,

London this city will take you high,

bring all your dreams to life,

 

Verse 3

This is the Church of England respect the religion,

Jesus is a gazillionair you ain’t even worth a billion,

Humble yourself and be exalted you stand noted,

Life begins when slavery ends so you stand demoted,

back to land of high fashion & heavy currency,

 Brick Lane when we’re shopping

Box Park when we’re out to eat,

West-End on the weekend

it all depends on how you feel,

 Mayfair if you wanna to spend big

or wanna blow a Mill,

Home of that jag, the James Bond swag,

take over undercover, we don’t mean to brag,

getting fitted by lee & leigh and she called me a lad,

I’m on a big man ting I’m putting London on the map, Brrrraaap!

That’s the sound they make where I’m at,

Yeah I do it in my city cause my city’s where it’s at,

If you love your city and you represent your set,

If you see me when you see me

then tell me where it’s at!

 

Chorus

London, our streets are paved with gold,

let everybody know,

London this city will take you high,

bring all your dreams to life,

London, our streets are paved with gold,

let everybody know,

London this city will take you high,

bring all your dreams to life.
