  • What's up Tim?
    Were goin' in right here
    Uh

    I been at this thing for years
    It's done turned me to an animal
    Some of y'all ratchet, I'm a write you hoes a manual
    Step by step, G shit for you to keep
    This the ratchet commandments, I need a moment to preach

    (Thou shalt not) fuck up on a nigga
    When you know he got a missus, you want labels, alright bitches
    (Thou shalt not) lie upon the bible
    How you looking for a title when you sleeping with his rivals?
    (Thou shalt not) put trust in these men
    These niggas are now bitches, quit acting so feminine
    (Thou shalt not) pacify the truth
    If you know your pussy lose, you a ho, so do better

    (Ratchet)
    Every night doing the most up on Instagram
    (Ratchet)
    Maybe that's the reason why bitches, they can't keep a man
    (Ratchet)
    Y'all can't sit with us
    (Ratchet)
    Listen while I preach, church

    These bitches ain't really friends
    She probably gon' take her man
    I'm done with the phony hoes
    These bitches is really bugs
    They rather be on the block
    Than taking care of the crib
    I'd rather be making money
    Than taking care of some kids

    (Thou shalt not) slip up on a heathen
    Always keep it cool, never let him know you need him
    (Thou shalt not) let a nigga see you sweat
    Fuck a bitch and get the check, move along, you know the rest
    (Thou shalt not) respond to these bitches
    They envy what you doing and they only want attention
    (Thou shalt not) pacify the truth
    If you know your rent due, get the fuck out the club

    (Ratchet)
    Every night doing the most up on Instagram
    (Ratchet)
    Ooh, maybe that's the reason why bitches, they can't keep a man
    (Ratchet)
    Y'all can't sit with us
    (Ratchet)
    listen while I preach, church

    I told Tim like
    I'm irritated, devastated
    I thought
    I thought we had some young queens, what you mean?
    We act belligerent, generation of ignorance
    Bitches live for the 'Gram
    so they life ain't got no significance
    Boy this shit be a trip like Expedia
    She won't pick up a book but she'll probably bust it open for social media
    Man, you'd be surprised
    cuffing and loving and fucking the team
    Getting by just by living and making it work on they knees
    Let's not debate it, these bitches is overrated
    They probably will never learn 'cause they lacking in home training, yo
    But niggas lying on they money like every day
    And niggas ratchet too, just in another way
    You fake fathers never held your daughters, never had a conversation
    You too fucking immature to get an occupation

    (Ratchet)
    Every night doing the most up on Instagram
    (Ratchet)
    Ooh, maybe that's the reason why bitches, they can't keep a man
    (Ratchet)
    Y'all can't sit with us
    (Ratchet)
    listen while I preach, church

    (Thou shalt not)
    No no, no no
    (Thou shalt not)
    No no, no no
    (Thou shalt not)
    No no, no no
    (Thou shalt not)
    No, no
