Seven Seven is no longer a lucky number
It'll now be forever associated with tragedy

1. As with 911 no longer being associated with getting help...
911 is a joke. (a double meaning with four times the meanings...)

911 is a joke could be my favorite Flava-Flav song.

5. Reminds me of the song by Culture
(I believe our Jimmy Jazz may have heard of this one)

Two Sevens Clash

What a liv on bamba yay when the Two Sevens clash
What a liv on bamba yay when the Two Sevens clash

Me know prophet Marcus Garvey prophecy I say
St. Jago de la Vega and Kingston is gonna meet
And I can see with mine own eyes
It's only a housing scheme that divides

What a liv on bamba yay when the Two Sevens clash
What a liv on bamba yay when the Two Sevens clash

Look at the cotton tree
Out by Ferry police station
How beautiful it used to be
And it has been destroyed by lightning
Earthquake and thunder I say, what?

What a liv on bamba yay when the Two Sevens clash
What a liv on bamba yay when the Two Sevens clash

I take a ride sometimes
On Penn Overland and Bronx
And sometimes I ride on bus X-82, say what?

What a liv on bamba yay when the Two Sevens clash
What a liv on bamba yay when the Two Sevens clash

Marcus Garvey was inside at
Spanish Town district prison
And when they were about to take him out
He prophecied and said:
As I have passed through this gate
No other prisoner shall enter and get through
And so it is until now
The gate has been locked, so what?

What a liv on bamba yay when the Two Sevens clash
What a liv on bamba yay when the Two Sevens clash
What a liv on bamba yay when the Two Sevens clash
What a liv on bamba yay when the Two Sevens clash

7. Doubtful
The Brits have experienced things much worse than this. The day's events will fade into London's history of destruction and renewal. besides, I don't think they're given to silly number games the way we Americans seem to be.

8. On June 6th, 2006....
I advise everyone to hide under their beds. (Sweep out the dust bunnies first.)
