Barry Bonds
Drake Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Interesting Facts ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

It's what you all been waiting for, ain't it?
Your weekly entertainment
For me to get a hold of this beat and go 'head, claim it
I'm about to paint a picture, you niggas go 'head, frame it
Since we getting Seinfeld on some Jerry and Elaine shit
I flow far from mediocre
And if we talking cards, I will fold him with the poker
You and your whole crew are like a deck of 54
So it's obvious y'all gon' steady be rolling with some jokers
And me, I'm rolling with some brokers
Like, damn, could you niggas get any broker?
I got my new girl so content
Just save yourself the embarrassment, don't even approach her
Disguise yourself, go buy a costume
I am making stocks work while you working stock rooms
Ugh, and I was praying I would drop June
But label reps applying pressure to make them pop tunes
So I keep it rocking for Pete's sakes
You fake gangsta rappers are cliche
And if you ain't talking dough when you meet Drake
I'll be all in your face, like, "No speak-a la ingles"
Soon as you hear it, you quote it
They try to be the one that I done left out the show with
But trust me, I'm aware, and my car's right there
Is this interior enough for y'all ulterior motives?
'Cause if you like it, you should stick with me
My money good, I ain't never had to flip a ki
A lot of ice, a lot of cream like Dickie Dee
Might cut the phone and disapear like Michie Mee
But I'ma try and have you on the trip with me
Sliding through Henri Bendel like it's slippery
And your ex-man is a hater, officially
Probably 'cause he know I'm exactly what you wish he be
Yeah, that's the reason why he looking hard
'Cause I done snatched the Chips Ahoy out his cookie jar
He just mad 'cause his girl's at the house
With her tongue sticking out like a Michael Jordan rookie card
Let me address this, pardon me while I fix
A couple subliminal lines caught me in the mix
I guess he thought he could've been Gotti in the flicks
But at this point, I'm just poking a body with a stick
Nowadays, rapping is a children's hobby
And girls keep telling me I'm still this snobby
I tell them myself is who I am feeling, probably
Just because I got a buzz like a building lobby
It ain't a song that your ass finna skip
I tried to sell weed, give me cash for the zip
The way your girlfriend pumped me up in the car
Seem like she don't really need no gas for the trip
Millionaire shades, fade with the waves
I smirk at a nigga if he still rocking braids
That just lets me know that we ain't on the same page
And that goes out to every nigga except Trey
I'm outta here, baby
They asked me about the past years and how does it phase me
I wouldn't take it back, nah, not if they paid me
Mr. Bet You That's Expensive 'cause it's not a fugazi
Spitting a Crock Pot of bottomless gravy
The shit is so nasty, how is it tasting?
And you can probably find him walking out of a Macy's
Forget it, girl, they just thinking how to replace me
Exit with a joke, leave these niggas some hope
You took that 'Ye beat and put that shit in a choke
Well, I'm thinking I should leave out on this note
Nigga, keep your two cents, I ain't tryna leave you broke

Life of a don, lights keep glowing
Come up in the club with that fresh shit on




With something crazy on my arm, uh-ahem
And here's another hit, Barry Bonds

He's angry because his girl is with me


With her tounge stickign out,
She's attracted to me


Like a Michael Jordan rookie hard
As if she's seeing Michael Jordan's rookie card for the first time


Let me addrres this, parden me while I fix
Let me address this, excuse me for a moment


A couple subliminal lines caught me in the mix
A few hidden references got me caught up in drama


I guess he thought he could of been gotti in the flix
He thought he could be like John Gotti in the movies


But at this point I'm just pocking a body with a stick
I'm not even trying to fight anymore


Now a days rapping is a childrens hobby
Nowadays, rapping is childish


And grils keep telling me I'm still this snobby
Girls keep telling me I'm arrogant


I tell them myself who I am feeling probably
I tell them how I'm really feeling


Just because I gotta buzz like a building lobby
Just because I'm popular doesn't mean I'm stuck up


It ain't a song that your ass finna skipp
You won't want to skip this song


I try'd to sell weed, give me cash for this zip
I used to sell weed and make money off of it

The way your girlfriend plays my music loud in the car


Seem like she don't really need no gas for the trip
It seems like she doesn't need to stop for gas on the road trip because she's so into my music


Millionare shades, fade with the waves
My expensive sunglasses, fading with the waves


I smurk at a niggah if he still rocking braids
I laugh at anyone still wearing braids


That just let's me know that we ain't on the same page
That tells me we have different attitudes


And that goes out to every niggah except trey...
This goes out to everyone except Trey Songz


(eyy) I'm outta here baby, they asked me about the past years and how does it phaze me
I'm leaving now, they asked me about my past and how it affects me


I wudnt take it back, naww not if they pay me
I wouldn't change my past for any amount of money


Unless you betcha that's expencive cause it's not a?
Unless you bet your life savings because it's not a guarantee


Spittin a crock pot of bottemless gravy
I'm spitting out endless hits


The shit is so nasty, how is it tasty?
My raps are so raw, yet people love it


And you can probably find him walking out of a Macy's
You'll probably catch him walking out of a department store like Macy's


Forget it girl, they just thinking how to replace me
Forget those guys, they're just jealous and trying to replace me


Exit with a joke, leave these niggahs some hope
Leave with a joke, give these guys hope for the future


You put the yay beat and put that shit in a joke
You put my dope beat with your whack rhymes and made a joke


Well... I'm thinking I should leave out on this note
Well, I think it's time for me to go now


Niggah keep your two cents I ain't trynna leave you broke
You can keep your opinion to yourself, I'm not trying to leave you bankrupt


Life of a don, lights keep gloown
I'm living like a king, the lights are constantly shining on me

I come to the club looking fresh and stylish


Something crazy on my arm...
Something expensive and impressive on my arm


And heres another hit barry bonds
And here is another hit song, just like how Barry Bonds hit a lot of home runs
