Tyrone
Erykah Badu Lyrics


I'ma test this out right quick on y'all
Now keep in mind I'm an artist and I'm sensitivie about my shit
So y'all be nice about it, alright
Sisters how y'all feel, brothers y'all alright
Let me see how y'all groove to this

Alright, I'm gettin' tired of your shit
You don't never buy me nothin'

See every time you come around
You got to bring Jim, James, Paul, and Tyrone

See why can't we be by ourselves, sometimes
See I've been having this on my mind for a long time
I just want it to be, you and me, like It used to be, Baby
But ya don't know how to act

So matter of fact, I think ya better call Tyrone (call him)
And Tell him come on, help you get your shit (come on, come on, come on)
You need to call Tyrone (call him)
And tell him I said come on

Now everytime I ask you for a little cash
You say no and turn right around and ask me for some ass
Oh, Well hold up, listen partna, I ain't no cheap thrill
Cause Miss Badu is always comin' for real you know the deal, nigga

Every time we go somewhere, I gotta reach down in my purse
To pay your way and your homeboys way and sometimes your cousin's way

They don't never have to pay, don't have no cars
Hang around in bars try to hang around with stars
Like Badu, I'ma tell you the truth
Showing groove or get the boot

I think ya better (call him)
And tell him come on, help you get your shit

You need to call Tyrone (call him)
Hold on but ya can't use my phone

The incredible thing about this song is that Erkyah said in an interview that she improvised (made up) the whole song on the spot, in front of this huge audience and she did it, in one shot. That fact that the band kept on beat with a steady melody and the background singers harmonized to a song they'd never heard is pure talent. What's also commendably extraordinary, is that the background singers instinctively knew to add their parts of " Call Him", "Come On Come On come on" while doing it on key and in unison. That is amazing.

Good story but not true. If she was freestylin back vocals wouldn't be in tune to follow her
Or would audience that sing along would know the song. I'm lazy for checking the dates of concert vs song on the album. Maybe she was freestylin in studio so they come up with the song. On concert she sure wasn't

Yep straight facts 🥰🤎

I think it’s a play off a blues song.

I still can't believe that she just winged it and made a masterpiece.
