Shoot Me Down

Album: Tha Carter III (2008)
  • Open up your hearts people
    Page one chapter one verse muthafuckin' one

    Yeah uh huh I'm drinkin' hot tea bitch, feel me

    Yeah now if you let me
    You wont regret me
    Shit if you let me
    You wont forget me,
    Remember, and if you don't then mind the,
    Hold up bah bah! There's a reminder
    I ain't kind hot I'm sauna
    I sweat money and the bank is my shower
    Ha ha and that pistol is my towel
    Ha so stop sweatin' me coward
    And I would
    Die for ours ride
    For ours
    Supply the flowers
    This is history in the making
    Now shut the fuck up and let me make it

    [Chorus]
    Please don't shoot me down cause I'm flyin' I'm flyin'
    I'm high-up
    Please don't me down cause I'm flyin' I'm high up
    (This tea is at a real good temperature right now, so am I)

    I spit Alcatraz bars I know
    And d-boys is the only alphabet boys I know
    Gotta 3-80 on my waist and Rambo at home
    No more bandanna round my dome bandanna in my right pocket
    Bitch I'm grown fuck what you on
    Now watch me stand on the world as I sit in a throne
    And if I jump I'm a fly and look into the eagles eye
    And see I am nothin' like you, why?
    Bitch see, it gets me how nothing gets me or get to me
    And if you shootin' for the star than just shoot me
    But your bullets don't reach mars
    Pause, clause, because I'm a a beast I'm a dog ill get'cha
    My picture should be in the dictionary
    Next to the definition of definition
    Because repetition is the father of learnin'
    And son I know your barrel burnin' but

    [Chorus]

    Pappa I did it to em, I'm a bastard
    And I'm a do it again like nigga backwards
    These niggas backwards but they behind us
    Now watch me get high like times up
    Now D bring the drums back
    And watch me hit em' where there lungs sat like that
    I get respect cause if I don't I'm a take it
    I see your boys hatin' and I see your girls naked
    Drum sound like a naked gun switch clips with my thumb
    Then I pop another clip in and aim at his vision
    Cause Wayne is his vision cause Wayne is the mission
    I'm aimin' at a mirror

    Please don't shoot me down cause I'm flyin' im flyin'
    (And I've done it before, please don't make me do it no more)
    I'm high-up
    Please don't me down cause I'm flyin' I'm high up
    (Watch me soar, where the fuck is my guitar, now roar)
