Mama Told Me

Album: Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors (2012)
  • Hey, Big Boi

    Kelly

    Player, player

    As the world shakes unharmed
    Twan, calm in the middle of the storm bomb
    Flow tsunami, ring the alarm
    Big Boi for dummies come and get some huh, wisdom,
    Like yo back teeth or get the fuck on, like some bad chi
    Negative energy not tolerated
    You all about a dollar and I'm ?
    Freefalling, Tom Petty heartbreaker, living legend, rap scholar, art major
    'Cause I make major art
    Like Beethoven, Van Gogh, or Mozart so don't start
    Around these parts we reign supreme and stay Krispy Kreme clean
    Blue jeans, Jordans Number 3's, that's important

    Be careful how you play your cards (That's what my mama told me)
    Be true to self and you'll go far (That's what mama told me)
    Try not to break too many hearts (That's what mama told me)
    I always knew I'd be a star (That's what mama told me)

    Mama used to say take your time
    Well I'm a pickpocket when I design rhymes
    Every little step I take like Bob Brown
    And It's so profound that when I throw those nouns
    We gon' get low low down until we get back up while everything gravy, taters mashed up
    You know I keep a full plate
    And a full thing of hot ones, throw away 38's
    But everything's straight, Bleed, shit
    I got everything I can need
    Me, boy, I'm everything you can't see
    Like three blind mice, on the chase of some great cheese
    And Cheddar Man say he got some great trees, say he serve me and my nigga Three G
    Butt tees, Jordans, number 5, you niggas boring

    Be careful how you play your cards (That's what my mama told me)
    Be true to self and you'll go far (That's what mama told me)
    Try not to break too many hearts (That's what mama told me)
    I always knew I'd be a star (That's what mama told me)

    'Cause I travel like a rocket, I do
    Mind riddle every socket for you
    I sway on the edge of the lightning (Yeah)
    Magnetic, can't stop
    Just floating won't drop
    I slip (I slip) I slide (I slide)
    Back up the ride
    I'm skippin' every mountaintop
    I'm reachin' for the highest high

    Be careful how you play your cards (That's what my mama told me)
    Be true to self and you'll go far (That's what mama told me)
    Try not to break too many hearts (That's what mama told me)
    I always knew I'd be a star (That's what mama told me)

    Yeah
    Yeah
    That's what mama told me
    That's what mama told me
    Mama told me
    Thats what mama told me (Mama told me)
    Mama told me
