lyrics

ExP
Gorillas in the mist, it’s Flame Griller in the midst /
Of some guerrilla tactics so you have to give it in and quit /
It’s not the scrilla stacking, pimping, macking, fiction that we live /
That’s the banana peel you flipping actors slip upon and trip /
Monkey bars from these bunch of ‘tards /
Something our country does in halves
Is come with something hard to bump up in your car /
Gotta throw a bunch of ‘nanas at the farce /
And play Superfly and Starting Up until the sun outdoes the dark /
I was once a young upstart burning blunts up in the park /
Listened to rap noise, smoking two fat joints /
Always writing bars, never wondered bout the art
I skipped general studies cos it wasn’t worth the UCAS points /
As you can see a rapper/emcee with a lack of degree /
Isn’t exactly employable and since 2003 /
When I finished my A levels I’ve been grafting away /
An amateur that does it full time, and I’m still rapping today /
Not after fame status, you gain haters and take favours /
From unsavoury fakers that you’ve gotta repay later /
...And I’d rather carve my own name on it, trust /
And keep saving up until I’m a flaming ape in a tux //

Chorus
…To all the Jungle Massive come on put your hands up /
If you rep a treehouse crib or a mansion /
…We split bananas like cash from a ransom/
You gotta stand up for the Flame Griller anthem /

JND
I don't care about you or yours / I care about me and mine /
Tearing out a piece of my soul to put in beats and rhymes /
I'm not monkeying around for your benefit /
Flame Griller: the best medicine: stress sedative /
Whatever you said int ever fresh, edit it /
We're the plus to your negatives / you couldn't get the gist /
The main difference is clear and apparent /
The content reveals the realness and talent / adhere to the challenge /
Of changing the way that we appear to the masses /
Get your brain in gear to understand it's just the way that we planned it /
There’s no escaping the damage, cause a crater on any stage that we landed /
Display a page above the basics of language /
…Take a breath there, what I'm tryna say /
We raise the bar higher than you on a day to day /
While you lames pick your arse on some monkey tip /
We'll be going ape, three gorillas on a hunting trip //

Chorus
…To all the Jungle Massive come on put your hands up /
If you rep a treehouse crib or a mansion /
…We split bananas like cash from a ransom/
You gotta stand up for the Flame Griller anthem /

Addverse
Swinging gorilla with the grip of an iron fist /
An orangutan man trying to fix up fire sticks /
Flame Grilling gibbons on a mission if they try resist /
Claim it’s as important as a chimp is to a scientist /
King Louie likeness eating ‘nanas where the Mayans lived /
Hanging on a tyre when tired wired from lighting twigs /
Fighting for survival it’s vital I kill off tribal kids /
Cos mans’ design is frightfully spiteful and full of violence, its /
Silverback leviathans striking as quick as lightning /
Strangling Tarzan with a python if I get sight of him /
Hiding like a sniper with a rifle with the widest grin /
Cos when I play I never lose – only right I will win /
It’s like I’m donkey mixed with a space alien /
When you say, “no homo” I follow it up with, “sapien” /
Nobody is greater than the predator invading em /
It’s King Kong climbing up the Empire State again //

Addverse
w…what are we doing with this bit?

JND
Just leaving it

Chorus x2
…To all the Jungle Massive come on put your hands up /
If you rep a treehouse crib or a mansion /
…We split bananas like cash from a ransom/
You gotta stand up for the Flame Griller anthem //
