Only on them C’s if it’s breeze (Uh-oh, uh-oh)

Red Ruby Da Sleeze, Chinese on my sleeve

These wannabe Chun-Li’s, anyway, 你好 (Nǐ Hǎo, uh-oh)

Who the f**k told b* *hes they was me now? (Uh-oh, ooh)

I knew these b* *es was slow, I ain’t know these b* *es senile (Ooh)

Married a shooter case you n**as tried to breathe loud (Brr-brr)

Boom your face off, then I tell him, “Cease fire”

I’m the AB side

Seven-hundred on them horses, when we fixin’ to leave (Uh-oh, uh-oh)

But I don’t f**k with horses since Christopher Reeves

(Uh-oh, uh-oh)

Gotta be careful when I do it, it’s flips all in the whips

It’s 40’s with 30 clips, FN’s with the switch

Guacamole with taco, waitin’ on El Chapo

Came in the Rolls and left low in a Tahoe

Bad gyal don’t die-die-die (Brr)

Hundred rounds on that, grrah-ta-ta

Real one lick a shot-ta-ta

She my lil’ vibe, my lil’ ah-ah-ah

Bad gyal don’t run from nobody, like ah

Rude boy want me touchin’ on his body, like ya

Boy affi dead if he ever diss me

You know what to do if he ever miss me

I stay with my na-na-na-na-na-na-na

His ex hit him, he like “Na-na-na-na-na-na-na”

He want the bad gyal sleeze like that

Well, I’m a tease like that

Ill na-na-na-na-na-na-na

He told me bring him that na-na-na-na-na-na-na

Rude boy want me touchin’ on his body, like ya

Boy affi dead if he ever diss me

You know what to do if he ever miss meWhen the Queen leave, b* *es wanna come out like a cockroach (Uh-oh, uh-oh)

Until I’m cookin’ in the kitchen like a pot roast

That new Spectre, we don’t fill pot holes (Uh-oh, uh-oh)

Dorito b* *es, mad that they nachos

Shout out my vatos

Shout out to hoes that’s watchin’ me like Movados (Click, click, click)

Big truck but I’m alone like Post though (Uh-oh, uh-oh)

Call Malone and tell him I’m goin’ postal (Brr)

These b* *es rappin’ like my blooper roll (Uh-oh, uh-oh)

Desert eagle if your n**a actin’ super bold

(Got ’em, got ’em) Got ’em like “Uh-oh”

Gun fingers like n**as doin’ the bogle, ya f**in’ bozo
