Shady

Album: Trespassing (2012)
  • Baby, I'm on the hunt
    Baby, I got my target on you
    Trouble, that's what I want
    And I'm gonna do
    Just what I have to
    Get your ass down to the front
    Go on and roll it out, I dare you
    Sorry I'm kinda drunk
    But did you just say your game was brand new

    No, I ain't broken, but I need a fix
    That satisfaction when I, I get my kicks
    I'm up all night, I'm outta sight
    Don't turn on the light
    'Cause I'm feeling so shady lately
    Come on and take me underground
    Deep under the street
    Come on and take me, take me down
    Where freaks like us can meet

    Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up
    Turn it way up, don't stop the beat
    Come on and turn me, turn me out
    'Cause I'm feeling so shady lately

    Gonna go and get me a shot
    Gonna knock it back, forget all my blues
    Yeah, that really hits the spot
    I'm feeling pretty fierce in my dancin' shoes

    No, I ain't broken, but I need a fix
    That satisfaction when I get my kicks
    I'm up all night, I'm outta sight
    Don't turn on the light
    'Cause I'm feeling so shady lately
    Come on and take me underground
    Deep under the street
    Come on and take me, take me down
    Where freaks like us can meet

    Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up
    Turn it way up, don't stop the beat
    Come on and turn me, turn me out
    'Cause I'm feeling so shady lately

    I throw more shade than a cloudy day
    The brakes don't work, I'm just a runaway train
    Somebody come and help me out,
    All I wanna be is free
    I was tryin' to get down, now I can't get out
    I'm shady lately

    Come on and take me underground
    Deep under the street
    Come on and take me, take me down
    Where freaks like us can meet
    Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up
    Turn it way up, don't stop the beat
    Come on and turn me, turn me out
    'Cause I'm feeling so shady lately
