  • What you call it when I'm winning?
    Need to find some other words for how I spin it
    Make 'em lean in when I'm speakin'
    Turn my back, it make 'em mad, it's not my business
    You wanna get what you want when you want it?
    Well, you should go to old country
    'Cause in the old country
    You could make me tap dance, shake hands, yes ma'am
    But I'm a free man now and

    I do
    What I do
    Not for you
    Not for you (not for you)

    I gave you the cool
    I could do it in my sleep
    Seven days out of the week
    It's a cake, oh, it's a breeze
    You can't fake the cool
    I could do it in my sleep
    Seven days out of the week
    It's a cake, oh, it's a breeze, hey

    Don't call me legend 'til I kick the bucket
    Never could define me, so fuck it
    I shed sounds like snakeskin, style like chameleon
    Wanna cage me
    But you can find me in the garden
    Growin' like a weed
    Oh, it's a curse, but

    I do
    What I do
    Not for you
    Not for you (not for you)

    I gave you the cool
    I could do it in my sleep
    Seven days out of the week
    It's a cake, oh, it's a breeze
    You can't fake the cool
    I could do it in my sleep
    Seven days out of the week
    It's a cake, oh, it's a breeze, hey

    Shut up, motherfucker
    I don't take requests
    Blessed be my lovers
    I'm not like the rest
    I'm bad like my mother (like my mother)
    So don't disrespect
    There'll never be another (there'll never be another)
    I'm better than your best

    I'm better (better), I'm better than your best
    I'm better (better), I'm better than your best
    I'm better (better), I'm better than your best
    I'm better than your (better than your) Writer/s: Jamila Woods
