  • Twenty four seconds, yeah, you better not stop
    You got twenty four seconds, can you beat the shot clock?
    What you waitin' on lil' daddy? I ain't got that much time
    You seem anxious, you seem adamant but you ain't press my line
    Wondering why, why, why (oh why)
    Know you ain't shy, shy, shy (oh why)
    I'ma say bye, bye, bye, better know I won't think twice (yeah)
    Better let go of your pride (do-do)
    Do it now (do-do), just do it now (do-do), oh yeah (do-do)

    When that nigga pull up on me, tell that nigga back, back
    Don't you know all of these niggas wish that they could bag that?
    I'm just saying, boy, you playing, you gon' let it wind down
    You got twenty four seconds and it's starting right now

    Shot clock (don't sleep, don't sleep)
    You're gon' miss your opportunity
    Shot clock (like, don't sleep, don't sleep, nigga)
    Pick up your feet, nigga
    Shot clock (like, don't sleep, don't sleep) (do-do)
    You're gon' miss your opportunity (do-do)
    Shot clock (like, don't sleep, don't sleep, nigga)
    Pick up your feet, my nigga

    Five years of dating
    Tired of being patient
    What the fuck you waiting for?
    Yeah
    It's a lot of niggas hating and I don't entertain 'em
    But damn, you gotta give me more
    (Shhh, I know, I know and I'm really trying)
    Oh-oh, if you don't want it like me
    I could think about a hundred things I could be doing right now
    Than wasting my time with you, oh (do-do)
    Okay, okay, since you gotta have it your way (do-do)
    I'ma start that clock on you (do-do)
    We gon' see what's up

    When that nigga pull up on me, tell that nigga back, back
    Don't you know all of these niggas wish that they could bag that? (All of these nigga, bag that)
    I'm just saying, boy, you playing, you gon' let it wind down (wind down)
    You got twenty four seconds and it's starting right now (right now)

    Shot clock (like, don't sleep, don't sleep)
    You're gon' miss your opportunity
    Shot clock (like, don't sleep, don't sleep, nigga)
    Pick up your feet, nigga
    Shot clock (like, don't sleep, don't sleep) (do-do)
    You're gon' miss your opportunity (do-do)
    Shot clock (like, don't sleep, don't sleep, nigga)
    Pick up your feet, my nigga, shot clock

    Twenty four seconds (don't sleep, don't sleep)
    You're gon' miss your opportunity
    You got twenty four seconds (like, don't sleep, don't sleep, nigga)
    Pick up your feet, nigga
    Ay, don't sleep, don't sleep
    You're gon' miss your opportunity
    You're gon' miss your opportunity (like, don't sleep, don't sleep, nigga)
    Pick up your feet, my nigga
    Shot clock

    L, Love
    Add "-rs" and that's surely what we are
    Flip it 'round, add "-ve" and let's see if this goes far
    Full of chuckles and cuddles and sometimes, eye puddles
    Compose love like we're Mozart Writer/s: Aubrey Drake Graham, Benjamin J. Bush, Dijon Isaiah McFarlane, Ella Mai Howell, Jahron Anthony Brathwaite, Micah Evan Powell, Stephen Ellis Garrett, Timothy Z. Mosley
