Kelela feat. Princess Nokia Junglepussy cupcakKe & Ms. Boogie Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴

Will you let me know if you're riding with? (Let me know)
You could be my friend, spark the medicine (let me in)
That's on God, I'm a Heaven-sent (Heaven-sent)
And it tastes so good, wanna eat again (be my friend)
I'll make you beg and surrender (surrender)
I'll make you cum 'til November (November)
I'm like a bird, Nelly feather (feather)
I know this isn't forever (forever)

Look, I'll give up right away
And you'll never figure out
What you said, but it's cool, baby
I'ma get me another round

Saw your face in my lane
Fall in love every day
You can chase it for the night
There's a place for you and I

Let me know
It ain't that deep, either way
Let me know
Said I gotta go, don't wanna hear me say
Let me know
It ain't that deep, either way
No one's tryna settle down
All you gotta do is let me know
All you gotta do is let me know

No one's tryna settle down
All you gotta do is let me know

I keep a nigga waiting on me I'm supreme
You could sleep on me but then you'll see me in your dreams
You will never leave me, you my BRB
You'll be back, crawling right back on your ashy knees (like please)
You wanna scoop, you wanna sip, you wanna slice (a slice)
You feel a way, you tryna link with me tonight (tonight)
You like the vibe 'cause all my bitches very fine
Verified, collectin' real checks in real life
I am not impressed by nothing that you like
I saw your friends, I know your plans, I know your type
I need shades dark enough to stop seeing through fufu
You could shut up, but show me what that mouth do

Shit, we just havin' fun (we fuckin')
He want a whole meal, them other hoes just crumbs (uh-huh)
Give it a couple of hours, then tonight I'm done
The eggs nighty side up, I'll kick em out by sun (goodbye)
Tell 'em don't be stupid, I ain't searchin' for Cupid
Only 'cause I'm bored, I might sit and amuse it (I might)
Call up the next dude when one starting confusions (it's easy)
I'm playin' these niggas like Anaís with Ruben (damn)
Nigga gave me head in the back of the Benz (skrrt)
Then tried to get close, I told him don't zoom in
You could be Charlie Sheen, and I'ma tell you again (say what?)
A bitch like me keep two and a half men (woo)
Super fucking petty, I'm dodging bouquets in weddings
Not tryna fuck with you heavy, my eyes rollin', no Kelly
'Cause you wastin' my motherfucking time (what?)
Nigga let me know or off my motherfucking line

Let me know
It ain't that deep, either way
Let me know
Said I gotta go, don't wanna hear me say
Let me know
It ain't that deep, either way
No one's tryna settle down
All you gotta do is let me know
All you gotta do is let me know

No one's tryna settle down (no one's tryna settle down)
All you gotta do is let me know

Stop slidin' up in my DMs
It's not that deep, we could still be friends
Don't push up without my consent (get off me, nigga)
My network's made of strong black women (excuse me)
So-called men wanna play with me
But I make the rules, so they obey me
I got the keys, that's do, re, and mi
Let me know, do you wanna have tea with the queen?
But if you wanna fuck, that's fine with me (uh, uh)
You gotta speak up, what's good, papi?
Say it loud and clear with the honesty
Give it to me raw, give it to me sweet
Kelela gotta go, she got a show
We waitin' outside at your motherfuckin' door
Wavin' the four-four, you better drop to the floor (pow, pow)
Ms. Boogie, bitch, got 'em sayin', "Give me, give me more" (ow)

Let me know
It ain't that deep, either way
Let me know
Said I gotta go, don't wanna hear me say
Let me know
It ain't that deep, either way
No one's tryna settle down ('bout to turn around)
All you gotta do is let me know (and you're gonna be sad)
('Cause you never let me know)

You're tryna roll all night
You're tryna roll all night (all you gotta do is let me know)
No one's tryna settle down
All you gotta do is let me know

Oh
Let me know
No one's tryna settle down
All you gotta do is let me know
