Kingston
Sean Kingston Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Kingston, Kingston, Kingston

[Chorus]
I see them coming from afar
I got my eyes open I'm ready to war
When I fight man they know who we are
A Kingston they come from, A Kingston they come through
I see them coming from afar
The vision thinks that I'm gonna get a scar
When I fight man they know who we are
A Kingston they come from, A Kingston they come through

My mom is my hero
Two three nine zero
Doctor was looking at us talk
From then I've been strictly on a mission
I got twenty-twenty vision
All the haters I can spot them from far
I'm sure (Kingston)
Jamacains on slash date
Probably representing and bringing it home
After I sing my songs





[Chorus]
