  • I was a lonely man, you can find me downtown
    Playing blues songs for anybody
    That comes round now they hear me sing
    They want to come round round
    I been waiting long for the sun to shine down
    I'm doing ok i'm doing ok
    I'm doing ok i'm doing ok

    Imagine that
    Never gave a shit, now I'm giving back
    Used to run around the flats saying "brap"
    Now I got the whole festival saying that
    Thinking 'bout the youths that I've taxed
    Now look at me paying VAT
    I remember coming home to my bags
    The door wasn't on the latch
    But mum, I'll always love you for that
    Only real women make a man
    That's why I wanna give you more than a hand
    That's why I wanna give you more than my bank
    I just wanna see you fly
    Wanna bring back my nan
    Wanna put you in the sky
    Give you land when you land
    Still ain't met your new man
    He better do you right ‘fore I
    Turn this to a wrap
    ‘Cause I'm living on kick

    If you live where I live
    You'll understand why I do it big
    Late night daydreaming 'bout my kids
    ‘Til the day I die
    They're the reason that I live
    I just had to do it right
    Done the legit thing
    I ain't just a role model in the business
    Tell my baby mother don't cry for me
    I'll just have to love you from a distance
    And I'm still the man
    Just a little more clearer
    I traded grams, switched them for letters
    Just like Instagram makes things look better
    When I hit the ground, I'll live forever
    Live forever, I'm alright with that
    Rolex on my wrist, good times are back
    Can't get evicted, I can buy my flat
