(Santigold)
Brooklyn, Brooklyn, Brooklyn, Brooklyn…
We go hard…
We go hard.

(Chorus) (Santigold)
Brooklyn we go hard, we go hard (repeated in background)
Brooklyn we go hard, we go hard
Brooklyn we go hard, we go hard
Brooklyn we go hard, we go hard
Brooklyn we go hard, we go hard
Brooklyn we go hard, we go hard
Brooklyn we go hard, we go hard

(Jay-Z)
This is black hoodie rap
There's no fear in my eyes where they're lookin at
Betta look a map
Be-sides me not like 'ta eye fight
Me not t'ink such a t'ing is worth a man's life
But if a man tests my stye
I promise he won't like my reply
Boom bye bye, like Buju I'm crucial
I'm a Brooklyn boy, I may take some gettin' used to
Chain snatchin, ain't have it, gotta get it
Same shit'd from Brownsville to Great British
Fatherless child, mama pulled double shifts
So the number runners was the only one to hang wid'ith
Before u know it, im in the game bang fid'ith
Feel no orangatangs peel-deel kid-aps
Like a ranger is, I'm dangerous
Tell me what the name of this shiittt

(Chorus) (Santigold & Jay-Z)
Brooklyn we go hard, we go hard (repeated in background)
Brooklyn we go hard, we go hard
Brooklyn we go hard, we go hard
Brooklyn we go hard, we go hard
Brooklyn we go hard, we go hard
B-R-O-OK! L-Y-N, come again!
B-R-O-OK! L-Y-N, come again!

(Jay-Z)
I father, I Brooklyn Dodger them
I Jack, I Rob, I Sin
Ah man, I'm Jackie Robinson
'Cept when I run base, I dodge the pen
Lucky me, luckily they didn't get me
Now when I bring the Nets I'm the black Branch Ricky
From Brooklyn corners, burnin branches of sticky
Spread love, Biggie, Brooklyn hippie
I pity the fool with jewels like Mr-T
With no his-story, in my borough, they borrow
With no intentions of returning to-morrow
The sun don't come out for many, like Annie
Half orphan, mama never had an abortion
Papa sorta did, still I managed to live
I go hard, I owe it all to the crib
Now please tell me what the fuck's harder than this?

(Chorus) (Santigold & Jay-Z)
Brooklyn we go hard, we go hard (repeated in background)
Brooklyn we go hard, we go hard
Brooklyn we go hard, we go hard
Brooklyn we go hard, we go hard
Brooklyn we go hard, we go hard
B-R-O-OK! L-Y-N, come again!
B-R-O-OK! L-Y-N, come again!

(Santigold)
Well I'm doin my time due to circumstance
Crossed that bridge, face the consequence
Once bid 10, now I payed my dues
Risk takers we break the rules
Gets so dark, but I see good
Bedstuy stay high in my neck of the woods
Now let it rain now, it's a warning
Brooklyn let it be sworn in
Gotta make you think workin like we blue collar
rip it to the core, underneath it all we harder
Right until we quit, bring it to the floor
One step, one step, give it up more
The road is rough and the streets a mess
Got big cash dreams and a sick death wish
Robbin out the commercial stash
To kill the voice screamin' in my head

(Chorus) (Santigold & Jay-Z)
Brooklyn we go hard, we go hard (repeated in background)
Brooklyn we go hard, we go hard
Brooklyn we go hard, we go hard
Brooklyn we go hard, we go hard
Brooklyn we go hard, we go hard
B-R-O-OK! L-Y-N, come again!
B-R-O-OK! L-Y-N, come again!
