Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday, dear Damini

How old are you now?

[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 havin’ 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 sentenced by the crown
And I never used to smile, though I never used to frown
Ten toes on the ground, what the hell?
My life came turnin’ around from runnin’ 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 fightin’
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
Layin’ on my back, now the block’s feelin’ 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
Lookin’ and went searchin’ through trials that occurred
Then I started workin’ twice as hard
Havin’ nightmares of the day I fall off
But I stick around like herpes, I ain’t lettin’ 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]
This is my story (Glory)
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)
