Swish Swish
Katy Perry Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

They know what is what
But they don't know what is what
They just strut
What the fuck?

A tiger
Don't lose no sleep
Don't need opinions
From a shellfish or a sheep
Don't you come for me
No, not today (woah)
You're calculated
I got your number
'Cause you're a joker
And I'm a courtside killer queen
And you will kiss the ring
You best believe

So keep calm, honey, I'ma stick around
For more than a minute, get used to it
Funny my name keeps comin' out your mouth
'Cause I stay winning
Lay 'em up like

Swish, swish, bish
Another one in the basket (basket, woah, basket, woah)
Can't touch this
Another one in the casket (casket, woah, casket)

Your game is tired
You should retire
You're 'bout as cute as
An old coupon expired (woah, woah)
And karma's not a liar
She keeps receipts

So keep calm, honey, I'ma stick around
For more than a minute, get used to it
Funny my name keeps comin' out your mouth
'Cause I stay winning
Lay 'em up like

Swish, swish, bish
Another one in the basket (basket, woah, basket, woah)
Can't touch this
Another one in the casket (casket, woah, casket, let's go, woah)
Swish, swish, bish
Another one in the basket (basket, woah, basket, woah)
Can't touch this
Another one in the casket (casket, woah, casket, woah)

They know what is what
But they don't know what is what
Katy Perry (woah)
They just know what is what
Young Money
But they don't know what is what (what, woah)
They just know what is what
But they don't know what is what (woah)
They just strut
Hahaha, yo
What the fuck? (Woah)

Pink Ferragamo sliders on deck
Silly rap beefs just get me more checks
My life is a movie, I'm never off set
Me and my amigos (no, not Offset)
Swiss swish, aww I got them upset
But my shooters'll make 'em dance like dubstep
Swiss, swish, aww, my haters is obsessed
'Cause I make M's, they get much less
Don't be tryna double back
I already despise you (yeah)
All that fake love you showin'
Couldn't even disguise you, yo, yo
Ran? When? Nicki gettin' tan
Mirror mirror who's the fairest bitch in all the land?
Damn, man, this bitch is a Stan
The generous queen'll kiss a fan
Ass goodbye, I'ma be riding by
I'ma tell my Biggz, yeah that's the guy
A star's a star, da ha da ha
They never thought the swish god would take it this far
Get my pimp cup, this is pimp shit, baby
I only rock with queens, so I'm makin' hits with Katy

Swish, swish, bish
Another one in the basket (and another one, and another one) (basket, woah, basket, woah)
Can't touch this (can't touch this)
Another one in the casket (and another one, and another one) (casket, woah, casket, woah)

They know what is what
Do they know?
But they don't know what is what
They just know what is what (woah)

@@SansTheSkeleton_ We all are heartbreakers, all of our thoughts are evil and all our good deeds are filthy rags.

Jeremiah 17:9 - The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
Mark 7:21 - For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
Romans 1:21 - Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Isaiah 64:6
But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.


We all were:
Psalms 51:5 - Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

Our Life Is Like Unto A Race
1 Corinthians Chapter 9
24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.

Why are rich and famous depressed?
lets list the reasons;
they`re trans, faking life 100% daily
their master is lucifer, the father of lies.
they have no looks, needs to fake these,
they have no talent, needs to fake these.
they are famous only a moment.
they are rich only for moment.
To have the moment on stage, wicked and sick ritual must be performed.
They are masons in masonry.
Nothing`s real, only illusions.
They have it harder , to give their soul over to CHRIST and return back HEAVEN (Luke 18:25 KJV and Mark 10:25 KJV)

true Christians are born again = new creatures in CHRIST, able to no longer sin and able to understand GOD perfectly.
We are to make a conscious choosing between GOD = CHRIST and mammon = lucifer.
Deuteronomy 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
Joshua 24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

we since birth live in the devils kingdom, this earth here, it shall be created anew, but not yet, still is the church time = still time for souls to get saved and be raptured up. until we come to repentance and born again, we remain living according to the devil.
devils expectations to us are:
lie/deceive kill destroy remain wicked sinner who praise death daily.
because devil is the father of lies:
John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

GOD `s expectations to us:
come to repentance
come out from BABYLON
born again
live holy
do the will of your heavenly father.
Matthew 9:13 But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
John 3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
Revelation 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
1 Peter 1:16 - Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
