  • Aye
    Shawty I know you be hearing this and that
    From here and there but,
    Please trust and believe lil' momma
    I see you gon' ride for me
    So I'm a die for you
    Is you wit' me?
    I got your back boy
    Well lets get it

    We were high (til when its all good)
    We were low ((til when its all bad)
    But I promise I will never let you go
    (now what you call that)
    Said I got I got I got I got your back boy
    (you got my back right?)
    I got I got I got I got your back boy
    (as long I know you got my back right)
    Keep my swagger
    Keep it looking good for ya
    Keep it looking hood for ya
    And shawty if you don't know
    I got I got I got I got your back boy
    (you got my back right?)
    I got I got I got I got your back boy
    (you got my back right?)

    Hey it's whatever shawty
    You ain't gotta ask
    Yes, Valentino blouses, summer houses, cash, check!
    You can get it you deserve it, flawless diamonds, Louie purses,
    My mission's to purchase Earth for her
    Present the gifts without the curse
    Her pleasure is my purpose
    Pleasure to be at your service
    We front row at fashion shows
    As well as Sunday morning service
    But better days or for worse
    If I'm paid or I'm hurting in my pocket
    She still got a nigga back, know that's for sure
    No matter what may occur in life
    Everyday with her is like a plus
    I'm a love her til she be like that's enough
    Pop a bottle get a couple wine glasses fill 'em up and lift 'em up
    Let us toast to the future here's to us
    No, here's to her

    They wonder how we do what we do
    Panamera Porsche's me and you
    Stuck to your side li, li, like glue
    Be by your side boy, whatever your goin' through

    We were high (til when its all good)
    We were low ((til when its all bad)
    But I promise I will never let you go
    (now what you call that)
    Said I got I got I got I got your back, boy
    (you got my back right?)
    I got I got I got I got your back boy
    (as long I know you got my back right)
    Keep my swagger
    Keep it looking good for ya
    Keep it looking hood for ya
    And shawty if you don't know
    I got I got I got I got your back, boy
    (you got my back right?)
    I got I got I got I got your back, boy
    (you got my back right?)

    This is for the women who man caught a sentence
    Who gonna be there for a minute but they didn't keep their distance
    They stayed home waiting on the phone
    And on visit day show up looking good smelling better, playing kissy face
    Just wanna let you know we appreciate
    Everything you do for us on a day to day
    And I know we don't show you all the time but we lucky that you ours
    No bouquet of flowers could ever show how much we know we need you
    We do all that's in our power just to please you
    See boo, fuck them girls I would leave the world 'fore I leave you
    May God say even Eve and Adam ain't have shit on these two

    They wonder how we do what we do
    Panamera Porsche's me and you
    Stuck to your side li, li, like glue
    Be by your side boy, whatever your goin' through

    We were high (til when its all good)
    We were low ((til when its all bad)
    But I promise I will never let you go
    (now what you call that)
    Said I got I got I got I got your back, boy
    (you got my back right?)
    I got I got I got I got your back boy
    (as long I know you got my back right)
    Keep my swagger
    Keep it looking good for ya
    Keep it looking hood for ya
    And shawty if you don't know
    I got I got I got I got your back, boy
    (you got my back right?)
    I got I got I got I got your back, boy
    (you got my back right?)

    Sure 'nough
    Even though them chicks be hatin' on us
    Still I'm gonna keep her by my side
    In whatever situation we gon' ride
    Make all my fantasies come alive
    That's no lie now
    I'll be alright just as long as you beside me
    Ten million dollar mansions won't suffice
    If you ain't gon' be in there with me at night
    The pieces to my puzzle's in my life
    With all of my good days and all of my bad
    You stood by your man and you know you got my back
    Worth every car every bag with me they wanna be that
    I know what I got at home
    I ain't never gon' leave that
    Them bitches best believe that

    We were high (til when its all good)
    We were low ((til when its all bad)
    But I promise I will never let you go
    (now what you call that)
    Said I got I got I got I got your back, boy
    (you got my back right?)
    I got I got I got I got your back boy
    (as long I know you got my back right)
    Keep my swagger
    Keep it looking good for ya
    Keep it looking hood for ya
    And shawty if you don't know
    I got I got I got I got your back, boy
    (you got my back right?)
    I got I got I got I got your back, boy
    (you got my back right, back right, back right) Writer/s: ALDRIN DAVIS, CLIFFORD HARRIS, TERIUS NASH
