Just The Way You Like It
Nasty Cherry Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You didn′t wanna believe the hype, but you sucked it dry
Saw our asses before we testified
Here we are, and it's ride or die
′Cause we've got the secret, it's potion number nine

We′re coming for you, one by one
Knockin′ you out, punch by punch
We're coming for you, one by one
Got you by the neck, just the way you like it

Just the way you like it
Just the way you like it, babe
Just the way you like it
Just the way you like it, babe

We′re so new, our birth was televised
Here to fill that void you have inside
You had the screen glued to your eyes (eyes)
Like four Mona Lisas haunting you, Renaissance vibes

We're coming for you, one by one
Knockin′ you out, punch by punch
We're coming for you, one by one
Got you by the neck, just the way you like it

(We′re coming for you) just the way you like it
(We're coming for you) just the way you like it, babe
(We're coming for you) just the way you like it
(We′re coming for you) just the way you like it

If we die today, we′d still be here tomorrow
'Cause we said we′d live forever
So take our pill and swallow

We're coming for you, one by one
Got you by the neck, just the way you like it

(We′re coming for you) just the way you like it
(We're coming for you) just the way you like it, babe
(We′re coming for you) just the way you like it
(We're coming for you one by one)

(Just the way you like it)
(Just the way you like it)
(Just the way you like it)
(Just the way you like it)




(Just the way you like it)
(Just the way you like it)
