K'naan - Troubadour (2009) - 15 Minutes

15 Minutes
K'naan
Troubadour (2009)

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,
