[Chorus] Its a lot of girls coming out to my shows. But you the only one I chose. Gotta let me know if you’re here to stay. I’m tryna take it slow, but I just can’t wait. So baby I’m going, I’m going, I’m going, I’m going. Baby I’m going, I’m going, I’m going, I’m gone. So baby I’m going, I’m going, I’m going, I’m going. Baby I’m going, I’m going, I’m going, I’m gone.
[Dave] Coolest man alive til this cutie caught my eye. Walk of shame and shame the devil, tell the truth, I can not lie, that her presence in my sheets and her essence on the covers so I left up out them streets and introduced her to my mother. Met her right outside my show but I closed at J. Cole’s. Just spare my ex the details, you could say that I’m chose. Spent a month out on the road, Cali weather, weed rolled. We too cool for the skyping so it’s hours on the phone. Man the girls look good and the rap game pays me, so girls gon be girls but I never let em phase me. Blogs gon be blogs, they aint always gon be playing me. Hope you in it for the long haul to paraphrase me. Been a few nights I aint spend where I say I be. Been a fool twice, men aint the only players g. Fools rush in, but its hard being patient, either third time’s a charm or a pattern like paisley.
[Chris] Fresh off a stage out in philly, and I'm staying in yo city, grease stay off on that west side and you stay in center city, so let's say you the one I'm checking for. I aint never ran game, you could check the score, in PYT with a pyt, let me grab this check then I'm good to go. Of course beautiful women come out to each and every show. But I caught the vibe you was sending from the second row. Hands full couldn't hold it so I had to let you know. I put it in the pocket like the timing on that drum roll. Slick talkin? Nah, thas just my ism cuz I'm from the Go. Where you from? I thought I heard an accent when you spoke. Yeah that's it, that's DC, is that MoCo, is that PG, uptown girl, 18th street, allow me to speak freely. A thirsty lame I'll never be. I'm really just makin convo. But send up the session and sweetie no question, you manifest it I gotta go. Look lady, no pressure. Just asking a question, answer and let a young scholar know. I'll hop up out that window but exactly, what am I falling for?
