Bonnie En Clyde
Jay Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Ons was rasend, ons was jonk
Ons was omgeslaan
Ons was lus vir alles nuut
Ons was altyd saam
Kiepie mielies in die fliek
Dikgevry in die agterstery

En die troue was te duur, die honeymoon te kort
Nou's die kinders op die agterseat van ons ou Ford
En hoe vlieg die tyd verby?
En waar los dit vir ek en jy?

Ek lief jou maar jy gooi my weg
My lief jy weet jy maak nie reg
Dit voel al wat ons doen is veg
Ek wens jy kan my net vashou

En jy sê jy sal 'n bank beroof
En so vir my jou hart beloof
Ek wens dat ons net weer kan wees
Soos Bonnie en Clyde
Soos Jekyll en Hyde
Soos Romeo en Juliet kom wys vir my hoe lief jy my het

Ek onthou toe jy wou loop
Ek onthou dit goed
Maar vir my het jy belowe deur die sweet en bloed
Dat as alles om ons val
Dat ek en jy onsself sal bly

Ek sal bid vir bietjie hoop
Ek sal als probeer
Ek sal saam met jou wil loop
Tot die aardeskeur
Ek sal vassteek in jou kop
En swem al is dit stroomop

Ek lief jou maar jy gooi my weg
My lief jy weet jy maak nie reg
Dit voel al wat ons doen is veg
Ek wens jy kan my net vashou

En jy sê jy sal 'n bank beroof
En so vir my jou hart beloof
Ek wens dat ons net weer kan wees
Soos Bonnie en Clyde
Soos Jekyll en Hyde
Soos Romeo en Juliet kom wys vir my hoe lief jy my het

Ruk jou bietjie reg
Ek is wêrd om voor te veg
Ek wil weer so voel
Kom maak my joune
Hoe kan ek vergeet
Al die jare al die sweet
Dis nie iets om weg te gee

Ek lief jou maar jy gooi my weg
My lief jy weet jy maak nie reg
Dit voel al wat ons doen is veg
Ek wens jy kan my net vashou

En jy sê jy sal 'n bank beroof
En so vir my jou hart beloof
Ek wens dat ons net weer kan wees
Soos Bonnie en Clyde
Soos Jekyll en Hyde
Soos Romeo en Juliet kom wys vir my hoe lief jy my het





Kom wys vir my hoe lief jy my het
Kom wys vir my hoe lief jy my het

Lyrics: Bonnie & Clyde

Uhh, uhh, uhh
You ready B? Let's go get 'em
Look for me, Young, B, cruising down the Westside highway
Doing what we like to do, our, way
Eyes behind shades, this necklace the reason
All of my dates been blind dates
But today, I got my thoroughest girl wit me
I'm mashing the gas, she's grabbing the wheel
It's true to the heart, she rides with me
The new Bobby and Whitney
Only time we don't speak is during 'Sex and the City'
She gets Carrie fever but soon as the show is over
She's right back to being my soldier
'Cause mami's a rider and I'm a roller
Put us together, how they gon' stop both us?
What ever she lacks, I'm right over her shoulder
When I'm off track mami is keeping me focused
So let's, lock this down like it's supposed to be
The '03 Bonnie & Clyde, Hov' and B
All I need in this life of sin, is me and my girlfriend
Down to ride 'til the very end, it's me and my boyfriend
All I need in this life of sin, is me and my girlfriend
Down to ride 'til the very end, it's me and my boyfriend
The problem is, you dudes treat the one that you loving
With the same respect that you treat the one that you humping
Now they 'bout nothing if ever you mad about something
It won't be that, oh no it won't be that
I don't be at, places where we comfy at
With no be-atch, oh no, you won't see that
And no, I ain't perfect, nobody walking this earth's surface is
But girlfriend, work with the kid
I keep you working at Kermain, Birkin Bag
Manolo Blahnik Timbs, aviator lens
600 drops, Mercedes Benz
The only time you wear Burberry to swim
And I don't have to worry, only worry is him
She do anything necessary for him
And I do anything necessary for her
So don't let the necessary occur, yep
All I need in this life of sin, is me and my girlfriend
Down to ride 'til the very end, it's me and my boyfriend
All I need in this life of sin, is me and my girlfriend
Down to ride 'til the very end, it's me and my boyfriend
If I was your girlfriend
I'll be there for you, if somebody hurts you
Even if it's somebody takes my place
Yeah-hee
(Break it down for 'em)
Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be
And so I put this on my life
Nobody or nothing will ever come between us
And I promise I'll give my life
And all of my trust if you was my boyfriend
Put this on my life
The air that I breathe in, all that I believe in
I promise I'll give my life
And all of my trust if you was my boyfriend
All I need in this life of sin, is me and my girlfriend
Down to ride 'til the very end, it's me and my boyfriend
All I need in this life of sin, is me and my girlfriend
Down to ride 'til the very end, it's me and my boyfriend

I almost forgot this song until I saw the Airbnb commercial with that old couple on what looks like a trip overseas. What a classic song!
