lyrics

Never Bring Me Down

I’m tired of you hating ass niggas
Faking like you want to see me win but really trying to do me in
Get under my skin, cuz you resent my confidence
You’d rather see me broken, ‘cuz I ain’t ego stroking
Nah, I’m a brazen heifer
Bad mutha fucka
I grow in the shade
Nigga you created a monster
Fuck what you’re used to
I got that black girl juju
Back water track slaughter
Swagger when I move through

Edges stay fleeky
Sneaker game squeaky
Serving Nefertiti
In that fresh dashiki

You fuck boys jealous of women
I bet you dressing up in my clothes I left in the kitchen
Hate to see me winning,
Scared of my light,
Don’t want to let me shine
I’m the genuine article, I’m a one of a kind
But you love a mediocre bitch
You place her neck to neck with me I swear I’ll choke a bitch
You weak broads make it hard to gain leverage
You’re sucking dicks for deals but I ain’t having none of it
The ground I put them under it
You wouldn’t last a day in my stilettos
Melanin kisses
Genuine thickness
I was made in the ghetto

See Normally I don’t cuss and shit
But you niggas thinking you running shit
And that’s dumb as shit
I ain’t gonna be finished ‘til I’m done with it

I told you I was good for the culture
When I’m winning, we all winning
But you pretending you fucking vulture
Don’t even raise your black fist up
When you see me in the streets don’t even dap me up
You uncle Ruckas mutha fuckas need a Samuel L Jack bitch slap
Yeah I’m talking that Jango
The way we let them thangs go
Don’t want that pie in the sky, I need my cake on my plate
Short me my fries, I’m gonna get out the gate
You stay trying to put me in my place
But I’m already here
A self-aware black woman is your worst fear

Hook:
I don’t have no time for waiting all around for
I don’t really want no, hangers on my rain coat
Please sir, vultures all around
Please sir, why you wanna bring me down

Look at what you made me, God please save me
From mine enemies creeping all around me
Please sir, I can feel them now
Please sir never gonna bring me down

2nd verse:
Now don’t get me wrong
I love my brothers
I give you all your propers
But don’t be mad at me ‘cuz I’m a show stopper
Yeah I’m a jaw dropper
Flyer than a helicopter
Read you like a teleprompter
But I’ll never tell a cop’a

I’m a boss no bitch suffix is necessary
Very hard body like Chevy
I’m colder than January
Hold all of your commentary
Don’t need no more promissories
I told you that you ain’t ready
Lot men can’t deal with women of my caliber
If you can’t control her, fuck her, own her then you mad at her
I walk by smelling like ylang ylang and lavender
But my body is mine sir, go and get a cavalier
Tell me how I’m fucking for what’s already mine,
Shit it I earned it
I worked hard for every gotdamn dime,
Only concerned with
My money being brought on time,
And when the revolution popping off, I’m on front line

Sometimes being a woman is like being black twice
I Gotta scream fire instead of rape
And you tell me act nice
Look pretty
Stay slim
Don’t talk loud
Don’t think
Don’t feel
Don’t act proud
But if I’m at my lowest, how are you 100 percent?
God made women and man for the balance of it
So will the real men please stand up
And defend what God made signing off with love

Hook:
I ain’t have no time for , waiting all around for
I don’t really want no, hangers on my rain coat
Please sir, vultures all around
Please sir, why you wanna bring me down

Look at what you made me, God please save me
From mine enemies creeping all around me
Please sir, I can feel them now, please sir you’re never
Gonna bring me down

And I Know, I know, I know

Licking off shots like, blaaow blaow blaow
We be bustin shots like, blaaow blaow blaow
We be bustin shots like blaaow blaow blaow
Licking off shot like blaaow blaaow blaaow
