WHATCHUTALKINBOUT
Jon Batiste Lyrics


I′m flying a plane to Mars, with bars that rocket me to a new level
I never will lose the space that I choose,
It's mine, I find it′s inevitable

Benevolent dude, I never refuse the truth when it hurts,
But it's good for you
Don't always look fly, just a regular guy
Dude with a hoodie and jeans and a beanie and a size thirteen
Sneak peek out the window
I′m a shy, young guy with a little bit of fame to my name
And the folks really like to come hear me sing

Got you down in the dirt with your messed up shirt
Like a leopard with the fangs, jumpin up off the floor
Hoping and hoping and hoping for more
In the passenger seat, this journey I beast

And I never concede when I′m bringing the funk
I don't even know what you talkin′ about
Every time I pick up the mic
And fam be reppin' and reppin′, I'm like
I never been jailed, I never been popped
I never will have the message of Pac

May never have the voice that you rock
But I dare you to call me and tell me to stop

Didn′t you hear the president sang?
Obama was singing "Amazing Grace"
There's so many things I'm delighted to say
Remember when the country was bae?

Flying a plane to Mars, with bars that rocket me to a new level
I′m chillin′, I'm feelin, I bust through the ceiling
And y′all ain't ready, ′cause
I don't even know whatchutalkinbout!
I don′t even know whatchutalkinbout!
I don't even know whatchutalkinbout!
I don't even know whatchutalkinbout!
I don′t even know whatchutalkinbout!
I don′t even know whatchutalkinbout!
I don't even know whatchutalkinbout!
I don′t even know whatchutalkinbout!

I never deny the brother in need
The more that you talk, the more that we bleed

You cut, you cut, you cut, you cut
And the deeper and deeper and deeper the stream

But this ultra light, not a regular beam
People is bursting up out of the seams
This is reality, not a dream
This is reality, and
I don't even know whatchutalkinbout!
I don′t even know whatchutalkinbout!
I don't even know whatchutalkinbout!
I don′t even know whatchutalkinbout!
I don't even know whatchutalkinbout!
I don't even know whatchutalkinbout!
I don′t even know whatchutalkinbout!
I don′t even know whatchutalkinbout!

As I proceed to do to deliver you the whole freedom of
Freedom fly funk soul food
Overload your mind
Break the space-time continuum
I'm flying a plane to Mars, with bars
They breakin′ me to a new level

But on my new level I still, still, still
Still don't know whatchutalkinbout!

The entire WE ARE album is 🔥 from start to finish.

I’m just gonna go ahead and say it… it will go down as one of the albums of all time.
