My chain hits my chest
when I’m banging on the dashboard
my chain hits my chest
when I’m banging on the radio
suki zuky I’m coming in the Cherokee
gasoline there’s steam on the window screen
take it take it wheels bouncing like a trampoline
when I get to where I’m going
gonna have you trembling
“Suki, suki” means “drive, drive” in Arabic. In the music video Saudi Arabian women are driving and aren’t supposed to, so MIA’s saying “suki, suki”. They’re bad girls.
Further, سوقي (suuqii) is in the imperative singular feminine, in a form I think is Saudi colloquial — more formal would be اسوقي. So, it has an additional subtlety of telling a female to drive.

So I guess this is where I tell you what I learned - my conclusion, right? Well, my conclusion is: Hate is baggage. Life’s too short to be pissed off all the time. It’s just not worth it. Derek says it’s always good to end a paper with a quote. He says someone else has already said it best. So if you can’t top it, steal from them and go out strong. So I picked a guy I thought you’d like. ‘We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.’

I think a lot of people are afraid of being happy because of what others might think of it. They’re afraid to embrace that and embrace themselves and love themselves and do what they love and what makes them happy. It’s very easy to get sucked into that way of thinking and you know, I guess, working according to society but you have to write your own story. My story is definitely going to be a happily ever after. No matter what.
