See a girl in my side view
Aint no way I’d let her slide thru
Sometimes a player don’t play by rules
Am I that serious?
My brain delirious?
Look me in the eyes
Cause I know ya feelin’ it
Don’t deny just grab my hand
Get on the floor and get to dancin’
Down and dirty, like skip romancin’
This is all part of my plannin’
You love me like you do it
Got me feeling bad
When you come to me
This is killin me
You hold me like you do it
And hold me close to you
Givin love to me
This is killin me
Killin her softly
Lovin the choice
Manuever from a Honda
To a new Royce
Whatever you want
Got plenty of new toys
Lambos, kus dro
Whatever you want
Just send me a list
And lets just hit
The stores like its Christmas
And we shop for six
Damn girl ya thick
Like snickers ice cream and milk
Watch it shake all up in that skirt
But I take good care of my affairs
So she look to me to stay prepared
Love that look when half her hair
Mask her half face beauty so rare
Bad purposes, but who’s to blame her
Tell me who wouldnt want this paper
Spend it now and save it later
Thats our motto, we aint fakin
Store the bread that stockhouse status
And several of her girls the baddest
So they comin over now
Get moscato and henny out
I ain’t ready for what’s next
She gets jealous, talks her ex
Im like girl we all got regrets
I ain’t see no girls like you yet

Said Dave: "I enjoy making a living making music as there is something always new to learn. If you know one instrument, you can learn another. If you know how to engineer one style, you can always learn another. My main question I ask myself when writing and making music is "what gives you goosebumps". The mechanics of songwriting and engineering can get quite technical, however at the end of the day its what makes you feel something."
