O.B.C.T

Album: Eton Alive (2019)
  • [Verse]
    You know the fakes will always bite
    Whenever you go throw the line
    Fishing
    Gudgeons and perch
    All draped in sponsorships
    And hugging self-worth
    Like me
    You know the fakes who hide behind
    The little miffs that like to chime for 'em
    All grit and dirt
    Until the mask falls off
    And what you got is Sesame Street
    Big bird
    You can't be splashing, you got no fins
    You're getting salty, you ain't a fish
    You know now I just fantasize
    In an house three times the size of my old one
    And I pretend that it don't matter
    Passed Oliver Bonas in the Chelsea tractor

    [Chorus]
    You can't be splashing, you got no fins
    You're getting salty, you ain't a fish
    You're getting shirty
    Your cheeky cuffy getting dragged 'round by your sleeves
    You can't be splashing, you got no fins
    You're getting salty, you ain't a fish
    You're getting shirty
    Your cheeky cuffy getting dragged 'round by your sleeves

    [Chorus]
    You can't be splashing, you got no fins
    You're getting salty, you ain't a fish
    You're getting shirty
    Your cheeky cuffy getting dragged 'round by your sleeves
    You can't be splashing, you got no fins
    You're getting salty, you ain't a fish
    You're getting shirty
    Your cheeky cuffy getting dragged 'round by your sleeves

    [Outro]
    You're getting dragged 'round by your sleeves
    You're getting dragged 'round by your sleeves
    You're getting dragged 'round by your sleeves
