  • It's been a long, long time comin'
    Ain't seen you around
    Time keeps on passin'
    But you still my bitch
    Can't tell us nothin'
    And it's nothin' but a thing, to pick up where we left off (yeah)

    Don't you ever think
    Back on all that other shit we went through
    You know I remember (yeah)
    Don't you ever wish
    One day we could reminisce
    It feels like, we were just together
    'Cause we go way back

    Like Prince and Marvin Gaye
    Like South Side on Sunday
    Some things don't ever change
    Yeah, you and me
    'Cause we go way back
    James Brown and Michael J
    Like them high school parties
    Some things don't ever change
    Yeah, you and me
    We go way back

    Way back, way back, way back, way back (yeah)
    'Cause we go way back
    Way back, way back, way back, way back

    I'd like to think, when we were growin' (growin')
    And shit got tough, we kept it goin' (goin')
    Out in the streets, no signs of slowin' (yeah)
    It's still nothin' but a thing, to pick up where we left off (yeah)

    Don't you ever think
    Back on all that other shit we went through
    You know I remember (yeah)
    Don't you ever wish
    One day we could reminisce
    It feels like, we were just together
    'Cause we go way back

    Like Prince and Marvin Gaye
    Like South Side on Sunday
    Some things don't ever change
    Yeah, you and me
    'Cause we go way back
    James Brown and Michael J
    Like them high school parties
    Some things don't ever change
    Yeah, you and me
    We go way back

    Twistin' up a twenty sack
    Fishin', listen, reminiscin' bout the days of way back
    Aye, where the ladies at?
    I need a fine one, top designer
    Baby can you help find one?
    A real one, not a phony, I wanna homie
    Never leave me lonely, be my tenderoni
    One hour photo together, take a few flicks together, that'll last forever
    Whether, we do, you do? Me too
    See through it all, now creep with the Dogg
    Don't let the rain drops stop ya, I got ya
    This is so evolutiona'ly proper
    Now what the future holds, no one knows
    But the past is a blast, game overload
    It's like Good Times, my favorite episodes
    I'm just the same OG, givin' y'all a little TLC

    Ain't seen you in so long
    But we've picked up where we left off
    It ain't nothing but a thing 'cause we go way back
    Ain't seen you in so long
    So we've picked up where we left off
    It ain't nothing but a thing 'cause we go way back

    Like Prince and Marvin Gaye
    Like South Side on Sunday
    Some things don't ever change (some things will never change)
    James Brown and Michael J
    Like them high school parties
    Some things don't ever change (you and me)
    'Cause we go way back
    Way back, way back, way back, way back
    We go way back Writer/s: Calvin Broadus, CALVIN CORDAZOR BROADUS, Dernst Emile, EMILE DERNST, James Abrahart Jr., JAMES JOHN ABRAHART JR., TIONNE TENESE WATKINS, Tionne Watkins
