  • It's D.E.V.L.I.N your girlfriend thinks I'm handsome
    I brainwash your mind like Derren Brown or Charlie Manson
    You won't suggest I'm random when I take the scene for ransom
    And I'm packing out stadiums with the fans singing my anthems
    Dirty like Lesley Grantham
    This is my manipulation
    So forget the speculation on all the trials and tribulations
    That I've faced along the way because now I've changed my situation
    My names lodged up in your brain just like a blade in an operation
    But now their all discussing me in their everyday conversation
    Assisting me to spread the word so brace for an invasion
    Neurological science I'll give you braincells re-wired
    My names Devlin & I'm just tryna gain entry to your mind

    I fought up my corner, didn't I warn ya,
    That one day you'd know my name
    A few years older now I'm singing
    Ayo ayo remember me
    Do you do you remember me!

    But now your being brainwashed.
    They never knew what my name was
    But now your being brainwashed

    You better recognize my name just like your family members
    My flows so tremendous shining like a thousand embers
    We came to take over your town til every man surrenders
    And kidnap your vocabulary until my name is all that man remembers
    You never knew me when my life was dark and gloomy
    But now my life is like a movie starring role yours truly
    So familiarize yourself with the cast upon the set
    If your unaware of how I'm moving then you ain't heard bars yet
    Nah!
    I'm Mr fire mic just like David blaine and Paul Mccenna
    Hypnotism different frame of mind whenever I pick the pen up
    So in the future if you remember any name again
    Make a mental note of 6 letters D.E.V.LIN!

    I fought up my corner, didn't I warn ya,
    That one day you'd know my name
    A few years older now I'm singing ayo ayo
    Remember me do you do you remember me

    But now your being brainwashed
    They never knew what my name was
    But now your being brainwashed

    D.E.V.L.I.N. make sure you remember me
    D.E.V.L.I.N. brainwashing your memory
    Standing my
    Make sure you remember me, make sure you remember me
    O.T. Bud sweat and beers.
    D.E.V.LIN standing my,
    Now I'm here, now I'm here!
    Make sure you remember me, make sure you remember me

    I fought up my corner, didn't I warn ya,
    That one day you'd know my name
    A few years older now I'm singing ayo ayo
    Remember me do you do you remember me Writer/s: DEVLIN, EMEILI SANDE, EMELI SANDE, ESHRAQUE MUGHAL, PONTUS HJELM
