  • Gimme that old school love right now (l-love you baby)
    You know when I hold you, you won't be alone
    As long as I'm here
    As long as you love me (l-love you baby)
    Gimme that old school love right now
    As long as I'm here
    As long as you love me (l-love you baby)
    Gimme that old school love right now (oh-ooh)

    Gimme that late 80's early 90's old school
    Feelin' like my second album, so cool
    Chiraq summer lookin' so cruel
    Look shorty in the eye, told me it was no rules
    Went to speak but was like never mind
    Let my mind just sneak back to a better time
    When I was his age and if he's ever mine
    Thinkin' he would only think back to this and never find
    Better times to think back too when it comes
    And he's older in the presence of somebody young
    Tellin' him the same things that he told me
    And he reacts the same way as that O.G.
    But it's old school, it's like '03
    And this old man is my old me
    Takes a long time to happen so fast
    To realize that your future is somebody else's past, what's up?

    As long as I'm here
    As long as you love me (l-love you baby)
    Gimme that old school love right now (gimme one for the old school)
    As long as I'm here
    As long as you love me (l-love you baby)
    Give me that old school love right now (oh-ooh)

    Analog black vinyl spinnin' soundin' so good
    Top down, can't be a classic if it's no wood
    If you don't know what, then you new school
    Floor model is the foundation for your YouTubes
    Model flows off of Fat Boys and Juice Crews
    Melle Mel's, Ice-T's, and the 2 Cools
    Add a Moe Dee and a Double L
    Had to walk 'cause it's hard to run in those unbuckled shells
    One microphone and a couple 12's
    Six drum sounds and a couple bells
    Is all you had to make a couple rails
    And that's a track, and if you want it (eeh)
    You have to make it like that (like that, like that)
    Now what's one turtle to a couple snails?
    Takes a long time to happen so fast
    And realize your future is somebody else's past, what's up?

    As long as I'm here
    As long as you love me (l-love you baby)(gimme one for the old school)
    Give me that old school love right now (gimme one for the old school)
    As long as I'm here
    As long as you love me (l-love you baby) (what's up?)
    Give me that old school love right now (oh-ooh)(and on the rewind)

    Chiraq summer lookin' so cruel
    How can I reel-to-reel when there's Pro Tool?
    I can't dig it at all because there's no tube
    Fire when you speak but ain't no warmth in your vocals
    Might have been a better rhyme then just never mind
    If it's better with time then think in line
    That you're going to be your nicest 'round your midlife crisis
    If your life like Christ live your midlife like it's Christ-like
    But nigga, I ain't psychic
    I know it's all a cycle and everybody bike it
    And France is enormous you're Lance with endorsements
    But you might need a hand to enhance your performance
    Consider this a kilogram of encouragement
    Teach you how to sneak it past the enforcement
    And when you get it through in a manner so cool
    Remember to give a little nod to the old school

    Gimme that old school love right now (what's up?)(l-love you baby)
    I'm leaving it all up to you darlin'
    Givin' you everythin' you want
    And give me that old school love right now (gimme one for the old school)
    You know when I hold you, you won't be alone

    As long as I'm here
    As long as you love me (l-love you baby)(gimme one for the old school)
    Give me that old school love right now (gimme one for the old school)
    As long as I'm here
    As long as you love me (l-love you baby) (what's up)
    Give me that old school love right now (oh-ooh)
