  • Came in with all this money
    I know that they all want it
    But you're the one who gets it
    Should've paid more attention

    I should be paying more attention to you
    I should be paying more attention to you
    I should be paying more attention to you
    I should be paying more attention to you

    Shit, smoke and mirrors, dollar bills
    Flexin' for no reason, get it how you live
    Crack a ceil, bottle poppin' on another level
    Red light special, she ain't selfish, workin' with no discretion
    Twistin', turnin', my mind blown and her mind gone
    She slow rollin', ain't no ho in her time zone
    Face right, stage lights turn her out
    Act like she the only one in here
    That can twerk for real and that's without a doubt, like damn
    DJ, run that back
    I think that was her song
    And she don't know how to act
    Like damn, all night, I been with it
    All night she been gettin' it
    All night she been winnin'

    I should be paying more attention to you
    All this money being thrown
    I should be paying more attention to you (All these lights shinin')
    Don't none of that shit outshine you
    I should be paying more attention to you (Ya already know, let go)

    Toot it up, turn ya out
    Show out when you show up
    Show out when you show up
    Show out when you show up

    Toot it up, turn ya out
    Show out when you show up
    Show out when you show up
    Show out when you show up

    (Came in with all this money)
    And everybody know it, chain still glowin'
    Kick it with my folk that ain't been here before
    Thought I seen everything I can see on the low
    Wish I seen from the door that you the best of the best
    Make a broke motherfucker thumb through a check
    I ain't really trippin' on ya homegirl, she was in her own world
    Shawty, I'm just hopin' you next
    To show up and show out
    Ya make it hard for me just to roll up and roll out
    To be honest you the type of chick a nigga search for when he have to go out
    Spotlight, night life, live in V.I. Every weekend
    I ain't trippin' on a busta that really ain't nothin'
    I'm hopin' you down for the creepin', like damn
    Super throwed, kill the po
    The whole club had to show you love
    The way you toot it up and get it off the floor, like damn
    Tell me you know you the greatest
    Ain't a chick in the V.I.P. That can shine like this
    Baby girl, you know you made it

    I should be paying more attention to you
    All this money being thrown
    I should be paying more attention to you (All these lights shinin')
    Don't none of that shit outshine you
    I should be paying more attention to you (Ya already know, let go)

    Toot it up, turn ya out
    Show out when you show up
    Show out when you show up
    Show out when you show up (I should be paying more attention to you)

    Toot it up, turn ya out
    Show out when you show up
    Show out when you show up
    Show out when you show up

    Came in with all this money
    I ain't trippin' on this shit I got right here
    I know that they all want it
    You just tryna make it happen in the club, ya feel me?
    But you're the one who gets it
    But you the baddest chick in this motherfucker
    Should've paid more attention
    I was slippin' but I'm here now, what's happening?

    I should be paying more attention to you
    Let go
    I should be paying more attention to you
    Let go
    I should be paying more attention to you
    Let go
    I should be paying more attention to you
    Let go

    Toot it up, turn ya out
    Show out when you show up
    Show out when you show up
    Show out when you show up

    Toot it up, turn ya out
    Show out when you show up
    Show out when you show up
    Show out when you show up

    I should be paying more attention to you
    (I should be paying more attention to you)
    I should be paying more attention to you
    (I should be paying more attention to you)

    I should be paying more attention to you
    I should be paying more attention to you
    I should be paying more attention to you
    I should be paying more attention to you
