  • It may not mean nothin' to y'all
    But understand nothing was done for me
    So I don't plan on stoppin' at all
    I want this shit forever mane, ever mane, ever mane
    I'm shuttin' shit down in the mall
    And tellin' every girl she the one for me
    And I ain't even plannin' to call
    I want this shit forever mane, ever mane, ever mane

    (Ayy, ayy, ayy, ayy, ayy, ayy)

    Last name Ever, first name Greatest
    Like a sprained ankle, boy, I ain't nothin' to play with
    Started off localm but thanks to all the haters
    I know G-IV pilots on a first name basis
    In your city faded off the brown, Nino
    She insists she got more class, we know
    Swimmin' in the money come and find me, Nemo
    If I was at the club you know I balled, chemo
    Dropped the mixtape, that shit sounded like an album
    Who'd have thought a country wide tour'd be the outcome?
    Labels want my name beside a X, like Malcolm
    Everybody got a deal, I did it without one
    Yeah, nigga, I'm about my business
    Killin' all these rappers, you would swear I had a hit list
    Everyone who doubted me is askin' for forgiveness
    If you ain't been a part of it, at least you got to witness
    Bitches

    It may not mean nothin' to y'all
    But understand nothing was done for me
    So I don't plan on stoppin' at all
    I want this shit forever mane, ever mane, ever mane
    I'm shuttin' shit down in the mall
    And tellin' every girl she the one for me
    And I ain't even plannin' to call
    I want this shit forever mane, ever mane, ever mane

    Ayy, ever-ever, Mr. West is in the buildin'
    Ain't no question who about to kill 'em
    I used to have hood dreams, big fame, big chains
    I stuck my dick inside this life until that bitch came
    I went hard all fall like the ball teams
    Just so I can make it rain all spring
    Y'all seen my story, my glory
    I had raped the game young, you can call it statutory
    When a nigga blow up they gon' build statutes for me
    Old money, Benjamin Button, "What?" nothin'
    Now it's super bad chicks givin' me McLovin
    You would think I ran the world like Michelle's husband
    You would think these niggas know me when they really doesn't
    Like they was down with the old me, no you fuckin' wasn't
    Um, you're such a fuckin' loser
    He ain't even go to class, Bueller
    Trade the Grammy plaques just to have my granny back
    'Member she had that bad hip like a fanny pack?
    Chasin' that stardom would turn you to a maniac
    All the way in Hollywood and I can't even act
    They pull their cameras out and goddamn, he snap
    I used to want this thing forever, y'all can have it back

    It may not mean nothin' to y'all
    But understand nothing was done for me
    So I don't plan on stoppin' at all
    I want this shit forever mane, ever mane, ever mane
    I'm shuttin' shit down in the mall
    And tellin' every girl she the one for me
    And I ain't even plannin' to call
    I want this shit forever mane, ever mane, ever mane

    (Ayy, ayy, ayy, ayy, ayy, ayy)

    Okay, hello, it's the Martian, Space Jam Jordans
    I want this shit forever, wake up and smell the garden
    Fresher than the harvest, step up to the target
    If I had one guess, then I guess I'm just New Orleans
    And I will never stop like I'm runnin' from the cops
    Hopped up in my car and told my chauffeur, "To the top"
    Life is such a fuckin' roller coaster then it drops
    But what should I scream for? This is my theme park
    My minds shine even when my thoughts seem dark
    Pistol on my side, you don't wanna hear that thing talk
    Let the king talk, check the price and pay attention
    Lil Wayne, that's what they gotta say or mention
    I'm like Nevada in the middle of the summer
    I'm restin' in the lead, I need a pillow and a cover
    Shh, my foot's sleepin' on the gas
    No brake pads, no such thing as last, uh

    It may not mean nothin' to y'all
    But understand nothing was done for me
    So I don't plan on stoppin' at all
    I want this shit forever mane, ever mane, ever mane
    I'm shuttin' shit down in the mall
    And tellin' every girl she the one for me
    And I ain't even plannin' to call
    I want this shit forever mane, ever mane, ever mane

    (Ayy, ayy, ayy, ayy, ayy, ayy)

    There they go, packin' stadiums as Shady spits his flow
    Nuts they go, Macadamian, they go so ballistic, whoa
    He can make them look like bozos
    He's wondering if he should spit this slow
    Fuck no, go for broke, his cup just runneth over, oh no
    He ain't had him a buzz like this since the last time he overdosed
    They've been waitin' patiently for Pinocchio to poke his nose
    Back into the game and they know
    Rap will never be the same as befo'
    Bashin' in the brains of these hoes
    And establishin' a name as he goes
    The passion and the flame is ignited
    You can't put it out once we light it
    This shit is exactly what the fuck I'm talkin' about when we riot
    You dealin' with a few true villains
    Who stand inside of the booth, truth spillin'
    And spit true feelings
    Until our tooth fillings come flyin' up out of our mouths, now rewind it
    Payback, motherfucker for the way that you got at me, how's it taste?
    When I slap the taste out your mouth
    With the bass so loud that it shakes the place
    I'm Hannibal Lecter, so just in case you're thinkin' of savin' face
    You ain't gonna have no face to save
    By the time I'm through with this place, so Drake

    It may not mean nothin' to y'all
    But understand nothing was done for me
    So I don't plan on stoppin' at all
    I want this shit forever mane, ever mane, ever mane
    I'm shuttin' shit down in the mall
    And tellin' every girl she the one for me
    And I ain't even plannin' to call
    I want this shit forever mane, ever mane, ever mane Writer/s: Aubrey Drake Graham, Dwayne Carter, Kanye Omari West, Marshall B. Mathers III, Matthew Jehu Samuels
