  • If you were worried 'bout where
    I been or who I saw, or
    What club I went to with my homies
    Baby, don't worry, you know that you got me

    If you were worried 'bout where
    I been or who I saw, or
    What club I went to with my homies
    Baby, don't worry, you know that you got me

    Somebody told me that this planet was small
    We use to live in the same buildin' on the same floor
    And never met before
    Until I'm overseas on tour
    And peep this Ethiopian queen from Philly
    Takin' classes abroad
    She studyin' film and photo, flash, focus, record
    Said she workin' on a flick, and could my click do the score?
    She said she loved my show in Paris at Élysée Montmartre
    And that I stepped off the stage and took a piece of her heart
    We knew from the start that things fall apart and tend to shatter
    She like that shit don't matter
    When I get home get at her
    Through letter, phone, whatever
    Let's link, let's get together
    Shit, you think not, think that Thought went home and forgot
    Time passed, we back in Philly now she up in my spot
    Tellin' me the things I'm tellin' her is makin' her hot
    Startin' buildin' with her constantly 'round the clock
    Now she in my world like hip-hop
    And keep tellin' me

    If you were worried 'bout where
    I been or who I saw or
    What club I went to with my homies
    Baby, don't worry, you know that you got me

    If you were worried 'bout where
    I been or who I saw or
    What club I went to with my homies
    Baby, don't worry, you know that you got me

    Yo, I'm the type that's always catchin' a flight
    And sometimes I gotta be out at the height of the night
    And that's when she flip and get on some 'ol
    Another lonely night
    Seems like I'm on the side you only lovin' your mic
    I know you gotta get that paper, daddy, keep that shit tight
    But yo, I need some sort of love in my life, you dig me?
    While politicin' with my sister from New York City
    She said she know this ball player and he think I'm pretty
    Psych, I'm playin' boo, you know it's just wit you I'm stayin' boo
    And when cats be poppin' game I don't hear what they sayin' boo
    When you out there in the world, I'm still your girl
    With all my classes I don't have the time for life's thrills
    So when you sweatin' on stage think of me when you rhyme
    And don't be listenin' to your homies they be leavin' you blind

    Yeah, so what you sayin' I can trust you?
    Is you crazy? You my king for real
    But sometimes relationships get ill
    No doubt

    If you were worried 'bout where
    I been or who I saw or
    What club I went to with my homies
    Baby, don't worry you know that you got me

    If you were worried 'bout where
    I been or who I saw or
    What club I went to with my homies
    Baby, don't worry, you know that you got me

    That snake could be that chick and that rat
    Could be that cool cat
    That's whisperin' "she tryin' to play you for the fool Black"
    If something's on your chest then let it be known
    See I'm not your every five minutes all on the phone
    And on the topic of trust, it's just a matter of fact
    That people bite back and fracture what's intact
    And they'll forever be, I ain't on some, "Oh, I'm a celebrity"
    I deal with the real so if it's artificial let it be
    I've seen people caught in love like whirlwinds
    Listenin' to they squads and listenin' to girlfriends
    That's exactly the point where they whole world ends
    Lies come in, that's where that drama begins, she like, yo

    If you were worried 'bout where
    I been or who I saw or
    What club I went to with my homies
    Baby, don't worry you know that you got me

    If you were worried 'bout where
    I been or who I saw or
    What club I went to with my homies
    Baby, don't worry, you know that you got me

    If you were worried 'bout where
    I been or who I saw or
    What club I went to with my homies
    Baby, don't worry you know that you got me

    If you were worried 'bout where
    I been or who I saw or
    What club I went to with my homies
    Baby, don't worry, you know that you got me

    If you were worried 'bout where
    I been or who I saw or
    What club I went to with my homies Writer/s: Ahmir K. Thompson, Jill H. Scott, Scott Spencer Storch, Tarik L. Collins
