  • "There's three balls and a strike
    Here's the pitch
    It's belted deep to center, Revere goes back
    Jumps at the wall, and it's gone"

    Yeah, isn't it amazin' how you talk all this shit and we still lack communication?
    How beautiful our kids would be, girl, I don't need convincin'
    How every conversation starts with, "This time will be different"
    Oh, oh, the idea is fun
    Oh, the idea is fun
    Oh, the idea is so fun every time
    At least we try for home run every time

    Swangin', eyes closed just swangin'
    Same city, same friends if you're lookin' for me
    Same city, same friends if you're lookin'
    I'll be here just swangin'
    Don't talk to me like I'm famous
    And don't assume 'cause I don't respect assumptions, bae
    I'm just tryna connect with somethin', bae
    Yeah, swangin', ayy

    She just wanna run around the city and make memories
    That she can barely remember
    And I'd allow her, talk about pussy power, yeah
    She just wanna run over my feelings
    Like she drinkin' and drivin' in an 18-wheeler
    And I'd allow her, talk about pussy power
    She used to say, "You can be whoever you want, even yourself"
    Yeah, I show up knowin' exactly who I was and never leave as myself
    But when it falls apart, I'm always still down
    To pick a million tiny little pieces off the ground
    Wish you would learn to love people and use things
    And not the other way around

    Swangin', eyes closed just swangin'
    Same city, same friends if you're lookin' for me
    Same city, same friends if you're lookin'
    I'll be here just swangin', ayy
    Don't talk to me like I'm famous, ayy
    And don't assume 'cause I don't respect assumptions, bae
    I'm just tryna connect with somethin', baby
    I'll be here, just swangin' (ayy, ayy)

    I remember when my schedule was as flexible as she is
    She call and tell me be here 'fore the sun up
    I be dressed before we hung up
    I take Eglinton to 401 East
    And exit at Markham Road in the east end
    Where all the pretty girls are sleepin'
    My license been expired, I renew it after the weekend
    Fuck, I know I said that shit the last seven weekends
    Girl, I guess procrastination is my weakness
    I hate stoppin' for gas this late
    'Cause there's niggas creepin and not like how we're creepin'
    Summer is comin' know you could feel it
    Twenty on pump whatever, I ain't got enough to fill it
    Won't knock on your door
    My uncle say, "You drive my whip like it's yours"
    I got the pedal to the floor
    I'm on my motherfuckin' way swangin'

    Don't fall asleep on me, hang in there
    I'll be there just swangin'
    I'll be there just swangin'
    I treat you good, girl, like you're famous
    I know I'm late it's always the same shit
    But don't fall asleep on me, hang in there, yeah, yeah
    I'm on the road right now swangin', girl, yeah

    Oh, oh
