    Boy, we wasn't never no joke, nah, nah, nah
    All summer, murder he wrote, nah, nah, nah
    Who they talkin' 'bout? Nah, nah, nah
    Doin' everythin' they didn't allow, nah, nah
    Overthrow, send the drones in
    All the maneuvers, feelin' closed in
    I don't need to strike back, I let God fight my battles
    Ain't strapped with a TEC, laid it down, now where they at?

    Next time you text, can it wait?
    You are talkin' to a presidential candidate (candidate)
    I know you think Obi-Wan gettin' tired now
    Don't jump, Anakin, I got the higher ground
    I'ma hit the moonwalk like I seen Tito
    Man, that rumble sound like President got vetoed, woo
    Got to sign off for the veto, ayy
    I don't need to sign a release, I'm a freed old man
    This is a video game, this is a simulation, man
    How do you listen to lame? They the imitation, man
    Take an idea, live it (live it), take an idea, did it (did it)
    Take an idea with it (with it), just look how we get it (get it)
    Just look how we did it (get it), can't tell me we ain't did it (get it)
    Can't tell me we ain't lived it (get it), can't tell me we ain't lived it (get it)
    Just look how we get it (get it), cartoons ain't timeless (get it)
    Cop cars ain't mind us, one call ain't wireless

    Boy, we wasn't never no joke, nah, nah, nah
    All summer, murder he wrote, nah, nah, nah
    Who they talkin' 'bout? Nah, nah, nah
    Doin' everythin' they didn't allow, nah, nah
    Overthrow, send the drones in
    All the maneuvers, feelin' closed in
    I don't need to strike back, I let God fight my battles
    Ain't strapped with a TEC, laid it down, now where they at?

    If I put myself in harm's way to get my own masters
    They'll put theyself in harm's way to stay the master
    They'll put theyself in harm's way 'cause they ain't askin'
    They'll put theyself in harm's way, the slaves are massive

    Do you want me to get specific?
    Do you want me to name numbers?
    Do you want me to name summers?
    All the stars came from us
    All the styles came from us
    All the talent came from us
    All the shoes came from us
    But the news ain't on us
    All the news ain't honest
    All the news ain't honest
    They wanna ignore me, rewrite the story
    Take all the top spots, in every category
    Back in Fashion Week them boys, can't ig-, can't ignore me

    Boy, we wasn't never no joke, nah, nah, nah
    All summer, murder he wrote, nah, nah, nah
    Who they talkin' 'bout? Nah, nah, nah
    Doin' everythin' they didn't allow, nah, nah
    Overthrow, send the drones in
    All the maneuvers, feelin' closed in
    I don't need to strike back, I let God fight my battles
    Ain't strapped with a TEC, laid it down, now where they at? Writer/s: Kanye West, Dwayne Abernathy
