Patient
Post Malone Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Yeah, yeah, yeah

I know my wrist be dancing crazy
Been on some fly shit lately
Used to be so damn patient
But now it's fuck you, pay me
Can't let these motherfuckers phase me
Never let that money change me
Ain't the way my mama raised me
Don't mean to brag but can you blame me?

200k and VVS, yellow diamonds
They wanna run up but they won't ever find me
Sleep right next to the F&N, motherfucker the government
Shut down all the plottin'
One hundred bands on my body
Fuck with them boys, touch a body
Lil mama just want my pocket
'Rari take off like a rocket
Hold up, you too close (too close)
I don't know, I don't know ya
Had to run it, run it up
How I will roll, I will roll ya
It's like after you pop off
They all act like they know ya
And Young Post be like Pablo
And they all love to blow yeah, yeah

I know my wrist be dancing crazy
Been on some fly shit lately
Used to be so damn patient
But now it's fuck you, pay me
Can't let these motherfuckers phase me
Never let that money change me
Ain't the way my mama raised me
Don't mean to brag but can you blame me?

Two hundred, swerving, dipping, dodge on the highway
You may contain me but you won't ever stop me
On her way to my residence
Try message your boo again
She pullin' up probably
Yeah, strally inside of that Benz
Yeah, come take a tatt on my belly
Yeah, people acting too friendly man
They tryna get dividends
This shit is a problem
Yeah, you just be talking shit but ain't ever met me
DeChino fucked your bitch and now you resent me
I know them people but they don't represent me
Them wastemen, we gon' make 'em all pay
They will never stop the plan
Eighty jumping off my hand
Rollie, Rollie, Rollie
Bust it open
Holy moly

I know my wrist be dancing crazy
Been on some fly shit lately
Used to be so damn patient
But now it's fuck you, pay me
Can't let these motherfuckers phase me
Never let that money change me
Ain't the way my mama raised me
Don't mean to brag but can you blame me?

Oh, oh, oh, oh, woahh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, woahh




Oh, oh, oh, oh, woahh
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Overall Meaning

In Post Malone's song "Patient," the artist reflects on his rise to fame and how it has changed him over time. The line "Used to be so damn patient, but now it's fuck you, pay me" suggests that the artist has become more impatient and focused on money since his career took off. He is aware that his "wrist be dancing crazy" with all the jewelry he has accumulated and acknowledges that he's been on some "fly shit" lately, a sign that he embraces his success. However, he still makes it clear that he won't let money change who he is as a person since that's not the way his mother raised him.


In the second verse, Post Malone continues to boast about his wealth, displaying his "$200k and VVS yellow diamonds" and "One hundred bands" that he carries with him. He acknowledges that people are "acting too friendly," perhaps trying to get a piece of the pie, but he's not intimidated and will make them all pay in the end. He claims that his haters "just be talking shit" but have never met him in person, while at the same time acknowledging that he knows people who do not share his values and does not want to be associated with them.


Overall, "Patient" is a song that reflects on the journey of an artist who has achieved great success but has not lost sight of his roots. While it's easy to get caught up in the glamour and wealth of the industry, Post Malone tries to maintain a certain level of integrity and remind himself of where he came from.

TESTO GEMITAIZ RAINMAN
Qualsiasi cosa fai, non sei me (Sei)
Fra', vinco tutto: Rain Man (Rain Man)
Basta che spingi play, man (Play, man)
Anche se poi non sei qui (Sei qui)
Sento parlare solo gli haters (Ehi)
Forse per questo non mi senti
Se resto solo vado crazy (Crazy)
Ti prego non andare, baby (Yeah)

[Strofa 1]
Sapevo che sarei andato lontano (Skrt skrt)
Ho sempre avuto dentro tipo un vulcano (Oh yeah)
No, non piacevo al preside
Stavo sempre in piedi e col cannone in mano (*Pff, pff, pff*)
Diceva: "Dove vuoi andare? (Uh, uh, uh)
Guarda che non sai cantare" (Non sai cantare, no, no)
Ora mi riempio le tasche (No le tasche, ciao)
Vivendo dentro le casse (Skrt skrt)
Per lei faccio di tutto (Tutto)
Perché non so cosa vuole (Vuole)
Ancora non l’ho capito (Lo capirò)
Però ci metto il cuore (Lo capirò)
Tutto quello che faccio (Faccio)
Lo faccio per l'onore (Onore)
Quando salgo sul palco (Palco)
Chi mi odia, fra', muore (Yeah)

[Ritornello]
Qualsiasi cosa fai, non sei me (Wow)
Fra’, vinco tutto: Rain Man (Wow)
Basta che spingi play, man (wow)
Anche se poi non sei qui
Sento parlare solo gli haters (Wow)
Forse per questo non mi senti
Se resto solo vado crazy (Wow)
Ti prego non andare, baby

[Strofa 2]
Vogliono farmi fuori, questi son matti (Skrt)
Tutti sold-out, fratello, chiedilo agli altri (Nah)
Salgo con Flavio e con M
E di solito è semplice, non ci sono sbatti (Niente sbatti, no)
Non importa quanto vendi (Quanto vendi)
Ma se sai stringere i denti
Sulle sue tette le dediche
Voi siete le repliche di quello che siamo (Uoh, uoh, uoh)
"Non ti fidare, Da', fallo per la gente" (Wow)
Baby, ricordo che lo dicevi sempre (Wow)
Adesso invece nessuno dice niente (Wow)
Come se per farlo un motivo non c'è
Ehi, eh-eh, allora lo faccio per me, allora lo faccio per me
Non mi muovo, non mi muovo (No, no)
