  • Oh boy, I'ma have to call them boys on you
    Aw damn, aw damn, I'ma have to call that man on you
    Something, something, something must be really wrong with you
    Why can you just tell the fuckin' truth now?
    Yes your mama did, she raised a fool, wow
    What the fuck did you learn in that school house?
    To chasin' thrills, chasin' thrills, takin' pills in the hills
    Slauson Hills, Overhills might get you killed
    And I won't come 'round them parts no more
    Do not run your mouth no more
    I can't protect you no more
    It's out of my hands for sure

    You should've called me
    Why you never call me?
    Why you never call me?
    Oh, you should've called me
    Why you never call me?
    Why you never call me?
    Oh

    Okay, now you wanna say all that I done to ya
    You knew all along that I wasn't the one for you
    So let's stop pretending like we were in love
    We never shared anything but the drugs
    We were both numb, never had anything real between us
    You really must
    Be smoking that crazy shit, in my city talkin' crazy shit
    But you ain't know I'm a crazy bitch
    And tell your lawyer that I ain't paying shit
    Maybe you should chill, really in your feels
    My bros is really in the field
    Neighborhood is really real and they don't play that here
    You shouldn't say that here
    You should've made it clear, my dear
    You should've called me

    You should've called me
    Why you never call me?
    Why you never call me?
    Oh, you should've called me
    Why you never call me?
    Why you never call me?
    Oh (uh, uh)

    Nigga, don't play (don't play)
    Nigga, nigga, nigga don't play (don't play)
    Nigga, go brazy for Jhené (for Jhené)
    Rob dirty with the .30 for Jhené (for Jhené)
    Pull up on your ass like, hey (like, hey)
    Fuck life, catch a case (fuck life)
    Suuwoo this, suuwoo that
    Nigga, nigga, this Blood Gang, ayy
    And when you call her, call her
    No, bitch, that's out (that's out)
    You callin' lawyers, that's snitch shit, mm-mm, that's out (nigga, that's out)
    I'm a L.A. nigga, we do everything for the clout (west side, west side)
    So we ain't got no problem pullin' up, suckin' yo' ass out
    The '64 bounce, the flag hang out
    I'll drink a whole fif', smoke a whole ounce
    Lookin' like Stacy, off "The Wood" when it's a drought
    Thinkin' YG gon' slide, no doubt
    I ain't in the middle of no pickin' pussy
    But she callin' me 'cause you callin' her
    I got shit to do and you workin' her nerve
    You tryna get her back 'cause you fuckin' hurt

    (You, you, you, you) it's over brodie
    Sometimes you gotta let shit go
    You should've called me (you know on the west side that's how it go)
    Cry me a river (you, you, you, you)
    And you know she raisin' a daughter so she gotta get smarter
    That's when relationships get harder, nigga
    You, you, you, you
    You should've called me
    You, you, you, you Writer/s: Adam King Feeney, Benjamin Joseph Levin, Jhene Aiko Chilombo, Keenon Daquan Ray Jackson, Magnus Hoiberg, Thomas Rohan Paxton Beesley

  • Tt from SomewhereeeBro I love this song, even now. It makes me remember all the bro’s I have and had. The boys that were always on my side. My literal ride or die. This song is the best. I also live Jhené the way she is and I really admire her.
