Gerald what the fuck is wrong, man? Cheer the fuck up, you asshole, yeah
We fake it 'til we make it Work while everyone doubts I was dreamin' of award shows While still on the couch Fame is all so new to me Guess I'm feelin' it out Man the other day my grandma said she's selling her house, wait See I was much more bummy and less star When my mom's unemployment check wouldn't stretch far Wishin' that my confidence was made out of Teflon And I could superhero, save the day, cop her next car Coming out the Bay feels like nobody gets far Feels like we're doomed Like they're building a Death Star Drink it all the way, stumble into the next bar Rap is like the lottery, we're all tryna scratch for But when the shit just strikes gold You accomplish life goals Go and get that ice froze, get paid off of nice flows It's weird, I got money, I could buy nice steez But don't look down Get scared of heights like these
Gerald what you so sad for? Why the hell you got the blues? Everybody wanna be in your shoes Gerald what you so sad for? Everything ain't that bad Name a reason that you got to be mad Gerald what you so sad for? Man stop acting like a bitch Forgot you're all famous now and rich? Gerald what you so sad for? Man stop cryin', homie rap more (Alright, well)
And in a year I went from overlooked to over-booked You won't ever understand the work it took Drinkin' every night to celebrate what we made But the parties have changed Weirdos crowd around and start acting strange At the bar stress chain smoking cigarettes And I don't even smoke, I know I should drink a little less But nothing can prepare you for how crazy this business gets Once again sad boy Gerald is in distress So hard on myself I think I'm going insane The mind of a perfectionist is always in pain Should be happy I don't have to set alarms to wake up I just tour and cake up I should probably call home so me and moms can make up These days the only home I know is the road And clowns are all sad inside, or so I'm told And the girl I'm really thinking of is states away We'll run away and find a place to stay
Gerald what you so sad for? Why the hell you got the blues? Everybody wanna be in your shoes Gerald what you so sad for? Everything ain't that bad Name a reason that you got to be mad Gerald what you so sad for? Man stop acting like a bitch Forgot you're all famous now and rich? Gerald what you so sad for? This was everything you asked for
