“I see her, she came with her n***a/ Mmm, but she gon’ slide right to my side, I know, she pulled up with her friends/ Then we skrrt off in the Benz, took her back to my crib and I regret it/ ‘Cause she tryna, fake like she asleep, swear she tried to stay the whole week
I’m like, “Oh, nah, she gotta go,” ask me her name, I swear I don’t even fuckin’ know/ They wanna know why di gyal dem deh pon me? Dem eye green, dem mind just set pon mi?/ They wanna know why dem love him off so much?/ Like, what is the reason?”
