Cállate, Mike Crook (ooh)
Burr, burr
Gucci (don't stop), Doja, got away (no)
Yeah (don't stop)

That's my shit, that's my wave
Do it like that and I'll repay it
Don't be scared, I ain't afraid
Just like that, come my way
That's my shit, that's my wave
Do it like that and I'll repay it
Don't be scared, I ain't afraid
Just like that, come my way

Yeah
I said, "Do that, do that, baby, all night long"
And I'ma turn off all my phones
You know I hate it when I'm left on read
But he make it all up in the bed
And he take me out, dinin' on nothin' but the best
He got Off-White on right, damn, he can dress
Makin' plans from the East, makin' bands in the West
Rock star, Black Beatle type, bands on his bread
And baby, I want it, and I just be honest
'Cause I just can't front when I look at you
Just keep it one hunnid when I throw these hunnids
I hope that your ass gon' know what to do

That's my shit, that's my wave
Do it like that and I'll repay it
Don't be scared, I ain't afraid
Just like that, come my way
That's my shit, that's my wave
Do it like that and I'll repay it (huh?)
Don't be scared, I ain't afraid (Wop)
Just like that, come my way

Gucci El Dorado, we in Rome, I'm a model (Rome)
Gucci Mane and Doja Cat, call me El Gato (Gato)
I'm the big boss and I got big bread (yeah)
I'm gettin' big-headed and I like good head (shh)
I'm not cheap, baby, and I'm sure not selfish (no)
Shakin' like Elvis, damn near broke my pelvis (sheesh)
Jumpin' off the top rope, got 'em tag teamin' (tag)
Putting' on a show, I got the whole crowd screamin'
Bougie with the bread, I'll knock a top-notch freak (freak)
Act like I'm a treat when a dog see me
Like a thief in the night, just like she stole my green
Got me walkin' off the scene like a whole in my jeans (damn, Gucci)

That's my shit, that's my wave (yeah)
Do it like that and I'll repay it (huh?)
Don't be scared, I ain't afraid (huh?)

The song moves quickly into an upbeat melody that highlights the rapper's desire for the perfect lover.


In the first verse, Doja describes her lover's ability to make up for his shortcomings by being especially attentive and passionate in bed. She also describes his ability to dress well, his financial success, and his rock star-like lifestyle that she finds irresistible. In the second verse, Gucci follows up with his own braggadocious lyrics about his wealth, fame, and prowess with women.


Throughout the song, both rappers emphasize the importance of being true to oneself and not being afraid to express one's desires and live life to the fullest. The chorus repeats the phrase, "That's my shit, that's my wave, do it like that and I'll repay it," emphasizing the theme of enjoying life and being with someone who can keep up with you.

Okay, her split matching the beat done at 2:30 is the most satisfying thing I've seen.

@karen-st7id

Right? Like, I can't stop thinking about how smooth it is.

@godseesus5604

@potato karen 🤔 The Almighty God of The Holy Bible is watching ALL that we think,do and listen to! Do you not fear God's HellFire??? Be Holy, Live Holy to avoid God's wrath!!!:

@Mr.Pallanza

@GOD SEES US!!!! Do you really believe that this comment, out of millions of others in this God-forsaken website, is the best place to preach this load of bullshit? Find a better place to properly preach this, because no one is willing to lend an ear or eyes to in this comment. Pack up, preach somewhere else. Comment Reported.

@karen-st7id

@GOD SEES US!!!! Do I fear god's hellfire? No, not at all, I don't believe in god. You went to the wrong platform and the wrong person to try and preach to.

I love how Doja really expresses herself probably more than anything. This was almost 3 years ago and I wanted to cry when she announced her exit😭Love you Doja🖤
