  • B.o.B. play the guitar
    (B.o.B., B.o.B., B.o.B., B.o.B.) play the guitar
    B.o.B. play the guitar
    (B.o.B., B.o.B., B.o.B., B.o.B.) play the guitar

    Well it's B.o.B., flyer than a stewardess
    Fresh to death like I'm dressed for a eulogy
    My outfit's retarded, my flow is the stupidest, dumb
    I'll probably need to after school tutor it
    Balling on beats, got hops like breweries
    Sideline haters need to chill where the cooler is
    Dr. J flow, you can call me Julius
    Y'all take shots, I direct: movie shit
    Grand Hustle champion, all I do is ball 'em up
    Niggas starting conversations just so they can talk us up
    If you ain't running shit you can't even walk with us
    Still I'm chill, blunt wider than a coffee cup
    You know it's B.o, I do this for the people
    Stacking c-notes, pockets on Cee-lo
    Umm, I'm killing 'em Mama - I'm talking hockey mask
    I do it to death, swag on body bag
    This beat is out of here, it's gone
    Farewell, so long, so long (sayonara)
    I'm sayonara, the way I'm gone
    So far away there ain't no signal on my phone
    'Cause I'm a star, so when I hit the bar it's like Cheers
    Everybody knows who you are
    Who would've thought I would've took it this far? Play the guitar

    Play the guitar, play the guitar, play the guitar
    (B.o.B., B.o.B., B.o.B., B.o.B.) play the guitar
    (3000) Play the guitar (3000) play the guitar (3000) Play the guitar

    Man, I keep having this re-occurring image where I'm
    Standing on top of Church's Chicken playing guitar
    Looked over and I see B.o.B. with this strange cigar
    He's standing on top of Dunkin Donuts, it's like he own it
    We at the corner of "Give It To 'Em" and "They Don't Want It"
    We out here somewhere and me in Europe, they out here yawning
    My niggas threw out way too much jewelry, my chain lonely
    But they don't know about black pearls, but I will show them
    "Why the world sleeping on black girls?" Hey I don't know, man
    Silverback Stacks, jumping out the jungle
    Blowing tiger stripe bubbles with "Go To Hell" bubblegum
    When I was younger space shuttle got hung in front of everyone
    And grandmum tells me to stay humble but do not un-der-stand
    One of these mumbles will make 'em throw up they arms and hands
    Now stumble and they will know I put on my pants
    One leg at a time, like they do, pay us no mind
    But everybody look at why we do it, it take us more time
    Excuse me if I'm no exhibitionist
    According to the internet
    3000 got a big old dic-tionary full of words
    He must know how to use 'em
    It also says I play the violin and that ain't true but
    You give me six strings and a pick
    And I will make a guitar talk, why, I ain't gotta say shit
    And I encourage any child to pick up some instrument
    'Cause if you're mad at your dad or mum, you can grab it and strum
    Eat your cabbage and corn, by the time you're done
    You will finally realize that they meant you no harm
    They was trying to save your crazy ass from what's to come
    3000 muthafucka "Mr. Tell-Me-Somethin'"

    My partners say I should practice more, I know
    They be saying I sound like I'm out of tune
    I ask them: "Do you cry in tune nigga? Do you laugh in tune?"
