Parralox - Sharp as a Knife


Sharp as a Knife

Written by Cooke & Wilde

Verse 1
Listen to me very closely
There's something that you need to hear the most
Now this is a rap about life,
cos it'll cut you yes, It's as sharp as a knife
Dont go too far cant you see
I am known as your destiny
I am the future in your life
You may call me sharp just like a knife

Sharp as a knife, yes that's me
I'm better known as life you see
I also control your destiny
And no your love cannot defeat me

Verse 2
I'm with you wherever you go
Wherever you are you will see me
Cos I am known just as your life
Stick with you just like your wife
Cut you down just like a knife
And don't have me repeat it twice
Don't you hear the voice inside?
It's telling you that you can't hide
Trying to get away and you're trying to go far
I'm just like you, like a car

Repeat Chorus

Verse 3

This is something yes by chance
So listen close it'll make you dance
It'll make you dance and have lots of fun
Make you hang out till after one
I'm the J V A (S H A) and the N T E
You will will never find another MC like me
Cos I am known to qualify
There's no other MC who could even try

Repeat Chorus
Repeat Chorus

Additional Information:
Originally released in 1986 by Roxanne Shanté, this was always a favourite of mine. It came out at the peak of the Acid House phase. So classic.
And in case you were wondering, it has nothing to do with Sharper than a Knife, the only similarity is the name.
I wrote Sharper than a Knife in my sleep so maybe I was subconsciously influenced.
Who can say?
Only your hypnotherapist knows for sure ;)
