I Don't Belong in This Club

Album: Yet to be titled (2019)
  • Some guy skipped in front of me
    Can't believe I paid an entry fee
    And I don't even got the energy
    To smile for a selfie
    And I know that I should go home
    But I'm still standing here so
    I guess one more for the road
    I wanna raise a toast so

    This one's for the sparklers
    Dudes wearing shades in the darkness
    But hats off to the DJ
    Same song twice in an evening (1,2,3)

    Oh, save me (Save me), can't take it (Take it)
    I don't belong in this club
    One dance (One dance), no chance (No chance)
    'Cause I'm feeling awkward as (Oh)
    I was waiting in line for an hour
    Just to get in now, I wanna get out 'cause (Oh)
    I'm jaded (I'm jaded), can't fake it (Can't fake it)
    I don't belong in this club, no

    Hopped out of the Uber (Uber)
    I was feeling myself (Goddamn)
    Had the polo with the bolo (I did)
    With some eel on the belt (Hoo)
    Walked up to the bouncer (Hey, what's up man?)
    Whole squad on stealth (I'm Macklemore)
    He said, "Mackler, who?" (It's me)
    You gotta wait like everybody else
    Shoulda stayed on the sofa
    Forgot I hate being social
    And I miss my ex-girl
    This Drake song making me 'motional (Girl, you hurt my feelings)
    I'm feeling awkward as hell (Uh-huh)
    I only came here to dance (Wassup?)
    The DJ ain't playing the cuts (No)
    And what do I do with my hands? (It's awkward)
    Roll with the punches and hold my Red Bull up
    And I toast the nights like this that I probably won't remember much
    'Bout to pull that Irish goodbye, grab my stuff, 'bout to cut
    And the DJ yells, "Macklemore in the house tonight"
    Ah, fuck

    Oh, save me (Save me), can't take it (Take it)
    I don't belong in this club (Club)
    One dance (One dance), no chance (No chance)
    'Cause I'm feeling awkward as (Oh)
    I was waiting in line for an hour
    Just to get in now, I wanna get out 'cause (Oh)
    I'm jaded (I'm jaded), can't fake it (Can't fake it)
    I don't belong in this club

    And to think that I've waited all week (No)
    To get someone's drink spilled over me (I)
    I don't care if the Uber's on surge (No I don't, no)
    I'd do anything to get out of this club

    Save me, can't take it, no
    I don't belong in this club
    One dance, no chance
    'Cause I'm feeling awkward as (Oh)
    I was waiting in line for an hour
    Just to get in now, I wanna get out 'cause (Oh)
    I'm jaded (I'm jaded), can't fake it (Can't fake it)
    I don't belong in this club Writer/s: Ben Haggerty, Jacob Oliver Manson, Max Wolfgang, Zak Zilesnick
