  • f/ Nicole Sinclair
  • [Kardinal Offishall]
  • Sweet Marie
  • CHORUS [Nicole Sinclair]
  • So sweet so sweet so sweet
  • Oh sweet Marie, Marie, Marie
  • So sweet so sweet so sweet
  • Oh come on, sweet Marie
  • So sweet so sweet so sweet
  • Yeah
  • So sweet so sweet so sweet
  • [Kardinal Offishall]
  • Sweetest Marie, it is to thee that I dedicate
  • Me, myself and I for all of eterni-tie
  • Without you I wouldn't have made it this far, this far
  • Tell me how to live right and how to live wrong too
  • But it only made me stronger
  • Wisest of wise enough, strongest of the strong
  • Now who love what I see
  • In life, before me, stands a headstrong woman
  • Overworked and underpaid, stress ridden
  • First class middle class person
  • Type rehearsing of your values
  • Made an easy path for me to be who I be (let's see)
  • One half of my creation, 100% Jamaican
  • 50% T-dot, 50% not anything mentioned before
  • But pure unadulterated love
  • Even though sometimes I can't get down with your actions
  • I'm passing that, for the positive things that I see in you
  • Dedicated to the one sweet Marie
  • CHORUS
  • [Kardinal Offishall]
  • Giving birth to a black man in this land
  • Is similar to angels being placed in the palm of the devil's hand
  • Corruption all around and surrounded by greed and lust
  • And trust (trust), that you will appear when the sun
  • But I am not one, all praises due to my mother
  • I love my father too, but sweet Marie there ain't no other
  • That show me more than you, how to stay out of the devil's reaches
  • Pushing me to profit, rocking funky in peaches
  • Society's leeches, teachers do yourself
  • And all your sister's need, in pursuit of higher wealth
  • Sweet Marie regardless of the treatment of your family
  • Despite of what you don't have, you'll always have me
  • 'Cause me and you we're tight, you respect my life's path
  • When I'm in a position, in those who deserve it feel the wrath
  • Of disrespecting you, we have the highest principles of blood
  • It runs thicker than water, but hurts
  • That's when eye's blood, sweet Marie
  • CHORUS
  • [Kardinal Offishall]
  • Staying at a friend's house, 'cause Hydro is not paid
  • Suffering in the dead of winter left dreaming of a grave
  • Or atleast someone to save, is the feelings I remember
  • Cold play in the Shakespeare on the Holy in December
  • Never lived in the ghetto but suffer the circumstance
  • Circumstantial evidence reveals the nature of my residence
  • My presence and present, is the love and strength of blackness
  • Fibers of a genocide and presence during Mantis(?)
  • Because of my Mom, I've experienced parts of life
  • My nigga could not relate to, but whose to shay that it's for better
  • Couldn't afford to buy me leather, but my body stayed warm
  • Couldn't afford to buy me diamonds, but I still had charm
  • She could afford to give me knowledge, and teach to speak truth
  • She taught me black lies were white reali-tie
  • Forever and a day gee, I will bleed for my family
  • F-O-S brothers and the one sweet Marie
  • CHORUS
