I Like That

  • Sometimes a mystery, sometimes I'm free
    Depending on my mood or my attitude
    Sometimes I wanna roll or stay at home
    Walking contradiction, guess I'm factual and fiction

    A little crazy, little sexy, little cool
    Little rough around the edges, but I keep it smooth
    I'm always left of center and that's right where I belong
    I'm the random minor note you hear in major songs

    And I like that
    I don't really give a fuck if I was just the only one
    Who likes that
    I never like to follow, follow all around, the chase is on

    Oh me, oh me, oh me, oh my
    Oh me, oh me, oh me, oh my I
    Oh me, oh me, oh me, oh my
    I like that

    I don't care what I look like but I feel good
    Better than amazing, and better than I could
    Told the whole world, I'm the venom and the antidote
    Take a different type of girl to keep the whole world afloat

    'Cause I'm crazy and I'm sexy then I'm cool
    Little rough around the edges, but I keep it smooth
    I'm always left of center and that's right where I belong
    I'm the random minor note you hear in major songs

    And I like that
    I don't really give a fuck if I was just the only one
    Who likes that
    I never like to follow, follow all around, the chase is on

    Oh me, oh me, oh me, oh my
    Oh me, oh me, oh me, oh my I
    Oh me, oh me, oh me, oh my
    I like that

    I remember when you called me weird
    We was in math class, third row, I was sitting by you
    Right before Mr. Ammond's class
    'Cause my mom couldn't afford new Js
    Polos, thrift store, thrift clothes that was all I knew
    Do you remember?

    Uh, I remember when you laughed when I cut my perm off
    And you rated me a six
    I was like, "Damn"
    But even back then with the tears in my eyes
    I always knew I was the shit

    I like that
    I don't really give a fuck if I was just the only one
    Who likes that
    I never like to follow, follow all around, the chase is on

    Oh me, oh me, oh me, oh my
    Oh me, oh me, oh me, oh my I (I like that)
    Oh me, oh me, oh me, oh my
    I like that Writer/s: Janelle Monae, Nathaniel Irvin, Raymond Ameer Murray, Rico R. Wade, Taylor Parks
