[Verse 1: Effswell]
First round
A stranger & I
She has no clue how cool
Tonight's bout to be

Dinner, a movie
& some wine, baby
I'm doing fine
I'm bout to trade in The P
For some V

If you're out here like I'm out here
You don't feel what you don't know
But when it hits, its so hard
That's FO real!
Since you're outchere like I'm out here
We don't win if we won't go
So can I date like you're Hill' with no Bill
And if elected

I'll make the girl disappear
I'll make the girl disappear with a smile & hello
I'll make the roof disappear
I'll make the roof disappear so the breeze & she can blow
I'll put the sound in your ear
I'll put the sound in your ear that'll feel like vacation
And if you're headed to the store
Here's twenty dollars for some brews
You can use my spaceship

[Verse 2: Effswell]
Shawty knows I'm playing for keeps
'Cause I go long when I'm strong
Diction so avant-garde, kitten
Drowned in a pool by the beach
Its SO deep!

That's when I tried to cut it up like coupon clippings on Sunday
She said "Be good! You'll get it one day!"
Then my rabbit sprang fat from a hat then SPLAT on her necklace
...and for my next trick!


[Verse 3: Effswell]
Ooh, they never shoulda gave you, gave you
Money, you slave, you Django wannabe BITCH
If you knew you were a slave you'd cling to
Massa, who'd hang you in a minute 'cause he's jealous bout his wench
You'd never runaway to escape who
Wants to annihilate you
Simply 'cause you're too sweet to resist
A couple trips, a couple dollars, and a hoe who gives you holler
That's the only reason you wanna be rich?
Too many wrong guys stuntin'
Its a long time comin' since Cooke said "Change Gon' Come"
They'd rather be cowardly
Nobody in the Galaxy must've listened to a word Sam sung
Meanwhile these rappers are false-flagging,
Trigger jam, homie you can't bang
Spittin' recycled lines, bitter 'cause you can't sing
Not me, I'ma do the damn thang
On a make it while you fake it campaign
Nicknamed Dave Blaine

[Chorus 2x]
