  • [Pre-Hook: Sarah Barthel]
    I got my drum machine
    I got my drum machine
    I got my drum machine
    I got my drum machine

    [Bassline: Skrillex]

    [Verse 1: Big Boi]
    Never scared Holmes, like a true player, runnin' out of end zone
    Known to put dick in the friendzone, but only by request like a big song
    Not my own heir to an Andre, bitch what's happenin', I see ya
    Man I see ya, man I see ya, man I see ya
    In the rearview mirror I think we see this shit clearer
    Ain't no crystal ball just balls on chins, dick all in your jaw amen
    Thicker than a Snicker bar but slimmer than a Slim Jim
    Then I tie her up Erica all we eatin' din din

    [Pre-Hook: Sarah Barthel]
    I got my drum machine
    I got my drum machine
    I got my drum machine
    I got my drum machine
    Three, two, one (turn up!)

    [Hook]
    Eight-Oh-Eight, Nine-Oh-Nine
    S-P-Twelve, hit drum wild
    Eight-Oh-Eight, Nine-Oh-Nine
    S-P-Twelve, now what you talkin' 'bout?

    [Post-Hook: Sarah Barthel]
    Can you beat it like a drum tell me, tell me baby
    Is it really what you want? Can you crank it louder
    Till we wake the neighbours up, I make the perfect sounds
    If you've got the magic touch, so you can turn me up

    [Hook]
    Eight-Oh-Eight, Nine-Oh-Nine
    S-P-Twelve, hit drum wild
    Eight-Oh-Eight, Nine-Oh-Nine
    S-P-Twelve, now what you talkin' 'bout?

    [Verse 2: Big Boi]
    This be that Jedi rap shit and I'm your captain, come on my spacecraft to see what's happenin'
    The bass they droppin' 808' straight jammin', disrespectfully but no manners
    Keep heat like the flame below the mantle, freak beats and make examples
    Assassinate every chant all the way from Atlanta, dick ride emcees and grab your saddles

    [Refrain: BIg Boi]
    In the rearview mirror I might start to see it clearer
    But the Eight-Oh-Eight is banging, I can't seem to fight the feeling
    From my drum machine (now beat my drum)
    I got my drum machine (now beat my drum)
    I got my

    [Pre-Hook: Sarah Barthel]

    I got my
    Now what you talkin' 'bout?

    [Refrain: BIg Boi]
    In the rearview mirror I might start to see it clearer
    But the Eight-Oh-Eight is banging, I can't seem to fight the feeling
    From my drum machine
    I got my drum machine

    [Outro: Sarah Barthel]
    I got my drum machine (I beat my drum)
    I got my drum machine (I beat my drum)
    I got my drum machine (I beat my drum)
    I got my drum machine (I beat my drum)
