    Woman talking: We not going to JC Penney's, we not going to Macy's either

    [Chorus]
    Shopping bags they weigh down her arm
    Popping tags and collars her charm
    All them things she got, she got from you
    All them things she got, she got from you
    Manolo and Prada's her style
    Louis, Burberry by the pile
    All them things she got, she got from you
    All them things she got, she got from you

    Yo she know you come to do it, so what you want
    Candle light might flick you
    Put your credit card to it, she know what to flaunt
    Her handle tight like a master

    She used to taunt on the runway, yeah she's down to tree
    The avenue like her catwalk
    Struck a bit to the gun play, that housing street
    looks to die for, ask that chalk man for yo' hand

    Spend it, you live to show
    All the cash that you can burn
    What you need is to end it, cause you give the dough
    But get no ass back in return

    Stay laughing, straight at you dog
    Best believe, you wasting time
    Don't deny what's happening, just clear the fog
    And achieve you a peace line, yo it goes like

    [Chorus: Only half of the chorus]

    She got from you, she, sh-she, she got it
    She got from you, she, sh-sh, sh-she got it


    Her frame goes beyond thick, she got you stunned
    Living it up off the pop hits
    Like a dame on a Bond flick, she's not the one
    To give it up 'til you cop shit
    J
    ust because she's stacked right, she got your soul
    Her every wish you now obey
    You should be on that act right, but she got control
    She say jump you scream, "Okay! I'm reloaded!"

    Nigga you shooting blanks
    Trying to front like you got game
    Her crib is sugar coated, like she looting banks
    But it's your wallet she done claimed

    When the limit of your plastic, reaches the end
    You start paying for your time
    She'll be in it for the last bit, of money to spend
    And you'll be left with dimes
    While she filling up

    [Chorus]

    She got from you, she, sh-she, she got it
    She got from you, she, sh-sh, sh-she got it Writer/s: DAVID J. JOLICOEUR, KELVIN MERCER, OTIS JACKSON, VINCENT MASON
