Shine Your Light

1970’s Radio host intro:

Whats up party people
This is ya girl
Sherry Duveaux
On WTLC rocking for the hard working folks
Just getting off of one gig and heading to another.
But in this crazy Friday rush hour traffic
I gotta jam that will smooth you out and get you right for the night
Imma about to split but before I do
An instant classic by none other than Maimouna Youssef
Dig the lyrics jack, she’s dropping some knowledge and making you feel good too
A little inspiration from your favorite station, a groove to get you in the mood,
Some Sounds for your get down
I know its rough out there yall, the Man’s foot always on ya neck
but don't worry about that sucka, just shine your light and I'll catch you on the flip side…


Verse 1
Keep on Walking with your head held high (shine your light 2x)
Keep on talking like you heard it from the sky (shine your light 2x)
We aint gonna let ‘em bring us down (shine your light 2x)
You know we come too far to give up now (shine your light 2x)
The chosen people bare the hardest load (shine your light 2x)
Heavy is the head that wears the crown you know (shine your light 2x)
Give Him thanks cuz we got Soul (shine your light 2x)
Baby shake it off and let the good times roll (shine your light 2x)
And lets party, everybody come together if only for one night (shine your light 2x)
Forget the troubles of the world (shine your light 2x)


Hook:
Lead: Oh and let the good times roll BGV: Shine your light (Repeat)
Lead: its good to be a light
Hey Let the good times roll, it feels so good to be alive

Verse 2
Child is born with no state of mind
Raised up in this ghetto life
Three strikes got daddy doing time
Feel like he was born under a bad sign
Crooked cops shoot your kids right in the back
They raided my grandmamma house, she had a heart attack
And when black girls go missing they never look for that
This ain’t nowhere to live but sh*t its where we’re at

Always seeming like we falling on some bad times
But we find a way to smile and keep our heads up high
Oh party Just forget about the troubles of the world Hey

Verse 3

Too much hard times will hurt your pride (shine your light 2x)
And the ones that you love don’t ever do you right (shine your light 2x)
So I keep on living with my head up high (shine your light 2x)
Everywhere I go Im going to shine my light (shine your light 2x)
Im going to stand on my feet if I have to die (shine your light 2x)
I’ll never live on my knees just to pacify (shine your light 2x)
People don’t you have no fear tonight (shine your light 2x)
God Children were promised ever lasting life (shine your light 2x)


Hook:
People come together, forget about the troubles of the world,
shake it off and let the good times roll,
shake it off and let the good times roll baby,
feels good to let the good times roll

BGV: (shine your light) Repeat
