Look At My Face

February 14, 2016

I got tude in my jit days from my people dem
Look at my face you know what I mean
I got plenny from watchin up
Let yoon do whatchu posed to do
Deya stop a sent’ince in da middle
Let it jess drop at da en
Yoon know wea it went at
You know dayn playin witchoo no mo doh
When dey can’t hardly git a word out
Den dey giiyoo a look dat giyoo da words
Dat fell owfta edge back dea
when dey had some playtime
Sontines yo tude was in da wrong place
Yo Granny don’t woana hea you cussing
like whas in yo head
Dem people in dis stoh gone be looking
Ready to look when we tired uh bein looked at
So dey grab dem words from back dea somewea
an put it right in dey face
Hih many words you see in dem faces
When I tell you a lot issa lot
Botta book an a haf in jes eyes
Two whole songs in da neck part
Dance for days when it git down to da arms
Irregardless da face giyoo way mo words
dat I might can’t say when I get my tude
Look at my face is all I gotta make you do
