  • No, don't shoot me down (yeah)
    No, don't shoot me down (okay)
    No, don't shoot me down

    You so motherfuckin' dangerous (you started with a mere hello)
    You so motherfuckin' dangerous
    You got me by my neck (a boy is a gun)
    That's why these other niggas lame to us
    'Cause all these other niggas lame as fuck
    We show 'em no respect

    (You started with a mere hello) When the time's right, yeah
    When the time's right, baby
    When the time's right (a boy is a gun)
    (Turn me up a little bit)
    No, don't shoot me down

    Take your hoodie off, why you hide your face from me?
    Make your fuckin' mind up, I am sick of waitin' patiently
    How come you the best to me? I know you the worst for me
    Boy, you sweet as sugar, diabetic to the first degree
    My spidey sensies, got me on the fencies
    Whole squad in Ginza, travel bag by Balenci'
    Big dawg hittin' big wheelies on the six speed

    No, don't shoot me down
    You so motherfuckin' dangerous (you started with a mere hello)
    You so motherfuckin' dangerous
    You got me by my neck (a boy is a gun)
    That's why these other niggas lame to us
    'Cause all these other niggas lame as fuck
    They showin' no respect

    (You started with a mere hello) When the time's right, yeah
    When the time's right, baby
    When the time's right (I said a boy is a gun)
    (Look) No, don't shoot me down

    Oh, you passive-aggressive? (You started with a mere hello)
    Oh, you fakin' you're mad?
    Oh, you wanna go home? Cool, you better call you a cab
    I ain't takin' you home, yeah, I'm brushin' you off
    'Cause this parka is Comme, you're my favorite garçon
    Don't leave, stay right here, yeah, I want you right near (you started with a mere hello)
    You invited me to breakfast, why the fuck your ex here?
    Well, let's see if you 'round the God around this time next year

    No, don't shoot me down
    No, don't shoot me down (fucked up)

    You so motherfuckin' dangerous (you started with a mere hello)
    You so motherfuckin' dangerous
    You got me by my neck (a boy is a gun)
    That's why I start to think it's lame as fuck

    (You started with a mere hello) When the time's right
    When the time's right, baby

    (You started with a mere hello) you're a gun 'cause
    I like you on my side
    At all times
    Keep me safe (No, don't shoot me down)
    Wait, wait, depending on, you know (all the time)
    You could be dangerous to me (time, time)
    Or anyone else

    Look, they be bringin' us up (you started with a mere hello)
    Yeah, like now and again
    Give a fuck what they talkin' 'bout, I see you as a ten
    I'ma leave it at that, I'ma leave us as friends
    'Cause the irony is I don't wanna see you again

    Stay the fuck away from me
    Stay the fuck away from me
    Stay the fuck away from me
    I ain't gon' repeat myself, but stay the fuck away from me

    (You started with a mere hello)
    (A boy is a gun)
    No, don't shoot me down
    (You started with a mere hello)
