  • My name calling all night
    I could pull the wool while I'm being polite
    Like darling calling all night
    I can be a bull while I'm being polite
    Like oh me, oh me oh my
    I know many women want to be in my life
    Like oh me, oh me oh my
    Why can't every woman end up being my wife?

    Even if she go away, even if she go away
    Even if she go away, even if she go away
    I'm a classic man
    You could be mean when you look this clean
    I'm a classic man
    Calling on me like a young OG
    I'm a classic man
    Your needs get met by the street elegant old fashioned man
    Yeah baby I'm a classic man

    I burn through the hood like whoa
    When everybody's feeling so cold
    I'm cool like Nat King Cole
    And niggas get a bit of my glow
    I got charm like a leprechaun, mummafunka
    Now y'all fucking with the wrong mummafunka
    Treat me like a don, mummafunka
    And we don't live by the law, mummafunka

    Even if she go away, even if she go away
    Even if she go away, even if she go away
    I'm a classic man
    You could be mean when you look this clean
    I'm a classic man
    Calling on me like a young OG
    I'm a classic man
    Your needs get met by the street elegant old fashioned man
    Yeah baby I'm a classic man

    I burn through the gate like whoa
    And everybody get it, we know
    A love life, living like gold
    And niggas wanna get in my glow
    I got mad love for my crew, mummafunka
    I'm the man, who are you mummafunka?
    Shine bright like a jewel, mummafunka
    Even under fire I'm cool, mummafunka
    Even when she go away, even when she go away
    Even when she go away, even when she go away
    I'm a classic man
    You could be mean when you look this clean
    I'm a classic man
    Calling on me like a young OG
    I'm a classic man
    Your needs get met by the street elegant old fashioned man
    Yeah baby I'm a classic man

    Keep my gloves dirty but my hands clean
    Got to keep the business in the family
    Fat when I'm filling up the pantry
    Now my niggas slang 'caine like a dandy
    I tell you how it go
    You pull out rubber bands, I pull out an envelope
    The ladies on my elbow ain't for the show
    Every madame on my team is a top general, oh
    Got to be ready for war, war
    Should they get into my door, door?
    Get 'em, we'll get 'em, I know that we'll get 'em
    'Cause I lived through this shit before

    I'm a classic man
    You could be mean when you look this clean
    I'm a classic man
    Calling on me like a young OG
    I'm a classic man
    Your needs get met by the street elegant old fashioned man
    Yeah baby I'm a classic man Writer/s: AMETHYST AMELIA KELLY, CHARLOTTE AITCHISON, ELEANOR TANNIS, GEORGE ASTASIO, JASBIR SEHRA, JASON PEBWORTH, JIDENNA MOBISSON, JOHN TURNER, JONATHAN SHAVE, KURTIS MCKENZIE, MILAN WILEY, NANA TUFFUOR, NATHANIEL IRVIN III, ROMAN IRVIN
