Wszycy już wiemy, że przedwczoraj zmarła Amy Winehouse- olbrzymi talent, świetny głos, który "odszedł" w wieku 27 lat. Wokalistka M.I.A. "wypuściła" swoje najnowsze demo nieco wcześniej niż planowała, by oddać cześć zmarłej Amy. Piosenka miała się pierwotnie znaleźć na mixtapie artystki zatytułowanej Vickileekx. M.I.A. dedykuje ten utwór wszystkim jej przyjaciołom, którzy umarli w wieku 27 lat.

Poniżej zamieszczam słowa i sam utwór.

 

27 by _M_I_A_

 

said your all mouth and no brains

all rock stars go to heaven

you said you’ll be dead at 27

when we drunk in a English tavern

the owner poured you the Bourbon

and you drunk your self so rotten

so he got so rich he bought a Bentley

and moved himself to Devon

 

you started dirty dancing and you bar tended a dozen

i took you to the clinic

to get you clean but you couldn’t

said in 2 days ur 27 and and ur destiny was comin

so ur papa passed so sudden

and left you with lil somethin

 

you blew that money on a mountain of drugs

and staged your self a bed in

a month later when i popped in

your still high but the winter set in

i bought you a coffee and a muffin

and you quoted me some Lenin

i wished i was that clever

but thats what kept me coming

your friendship did mean somin

but you left me for nothin

when i left, you befriended a rope

and i saw you both were hanging.
