Verse 1: Burna Boy

(Oh, man)
Glory, yeah
Like the last time that you ever seen me, hold me, ah
Lately, I’ve been fucked up, been having a hard time
Like back when my dawg died
Felt my heart split apart like apartheid
I could have survived, thug life full of combine
Hold it down, I was sentеnced by the crown
And I nevеr used to smile, though I never used to frown
Ten toes on the ground, what the hell?
My life came turning around from running wild in my town to the glory

Refrain: Burna Boy & Ladysmith Black Mambazo

Hold me, ah (Ngiphakamise)
This is my story, yeah (Indaba yami le)
Glory, yeah
Like the last time that you ever seen me, hold me, ah

Verse 2: Burna Boy

I remember when they shipped me from the cans
To Chelmsford HMP and my celly had it bad
So I had to have his back, niggas started fighting
And then they cut me on my hand
So I grabbed one from the back and I flung him off the landing
You know the screws get extra ruthless when you’re Black
Laying on my back, now the block’s feeling mad
Now I’m in a lab tryna do the best I can

Refrain: Burna Boy

Hold me, ah, this is my story, yes
Glory, yeah
Like the last time that you ever seen me, hold me, ah

Verse 3: Burna Boy

Said, first things first
I finna let you know that I been bad since birth
I heard it from the nurse
Looking and went searching through trials that occurred
Then I started working twice as hard
Having nightmares of the day I fall off
But I stick around like herpes, I ain’t letting up
With harmonies just like Bone Thugz, ooh

Refrain: Burna Boy

Hold me, ah, this is my story, yeah
Glory, yeah
Like the last time that you ever seen me, hold me, ah
Glory, yeah

Outro: Ladysmith Black Mambazo

Indaba yami le (Glory)
This is my story (Glory)
Indaba yami le (Glory)
This is my story (Glory)
Indaba yami le (Glory)
This is my story (Okay, alright, on three)
