Take Me Home Lyrics

And I promise if you take me home,
I'll sing you a song, never leave me alone
Said come on baby, throw me a bone,
I'll sing you a song, never leave me alone

And I promise if you take me home,
I'll sing you a song, never leave me alone
Said come on baby, throw me a bone,
I'll sing you a song, never leave me alone

I'ma tell you something. about me, heheh
That's my favorite subject, I don't know if you picked up on that yet or not

I never said I had a business mind
I just don't believe that quitting time exists, ain't no finish line to this
You got to give me mine, I really shine, my given time is this
Live and die with the grind, driven by the fist
Where you do place my name if I never played your game?
We don't race the same, I don't run inside no painted lane
Plus ya'll pace is strange, ya'll need to stop and you sprint
Run when it's sunny and hide if it change to rain
I wouldn't be half the Ali that I am
if I slowed myself up and tried competing with these people, fam
I've every bit as unconcerned as they are unprepared
Market flooded, needless to say I wasn't scared
Let's all drop the same day, I don't fucking care
Put listening stations in the store and let the public hear
Better yet, let's have an in-store performance
Make it oranges to oranges, me dwarfin' your endurance
After that we'll shoot the shit with our supporters
and see how many more discs of yours the indie stores order
See you already know I out-rap 'em
On the low, we out-work, out-think, and out-class them

And I promise if you take me home,
I'll sing you a song, never leave me alone
Said come on baby, throw me a bone,
I'll sing you a song, never leave me alone

And I promise if you take me home,
I'll sing you a song, never leave me alone
Said come on baby, throw me a bone,
I'll sing you a song, never leave me alone

Nobody's doing this thing exactly like we do
I mean they do it, they just ain't doing it exactly like us, you know what I'm saying?
Sucker-ass motherfucker

My personal pedigree's so bona fide,
'Cause a man of my stature ain't grown overnight
The undisputed king of where poor folks reside
Because every time I speak there'll be hope vocalized in you
Sit and bitch with them chickens about "it isn't fair"
The sound system ain't shit, but I was crystal clear
We first-name based with soundmen, we bring 'em beer
Plus I tipped 'em fifty last semester when the clique was here
Listen here, I ain't going give you all the secrets
Just these few examples help me illustrate my pretense
Our strength is unrelated to your weakness
'Cause you'll never be a worthy pool of peers to be competed with
I sing my shit with Son House and Syl Johnson
and always lose, I done lost face too
but I'm sporting they shoes, so let me remind you
and them little kicks you're trying to fit,
we outgrew them shits in high school

And I promise if you take me home,
I'll sing you a song, never leave me alone
Said come on baby, throw me a bone,
I'll sing you a song, never leave me alone

And I promise if you take me home,
I'll sing you a song, never leave me alone
Said come on baby, throw me a bone,
I'll sing you a song, never leave me alone

I don't think I'm arrogant, man, I think just I'm, you know
I dos what the fuck I does, man, and it's just.
you can kiss my ass, all I care

It's of foremost importance,
There is none like unto the Brother Al
This motherfucker regardless, and stop all the nonsense
You see me lounging, call Rhymesayer's office, I've officially lost it
They say my reputation precedes me
I don't know the meaning of off-season, I ain't taking it easy
Ain't taking a day off, never had a off night
Never been laid off, I live on the job site
It all pays off, though, when I squint through the spotlight
and see your lips a'moving to the true shit that I write
and we going be all right, every night of my life is my night
'Cause I view the future like it's hindsight
I ain't waiting or patiently persevering
I see greatness in the person in the mirror very clearly
and that's why I take this seriously
Baby, come near to me and truly, truly hear me

And I promise if you take me home,
I'll sing you a song, never leave me alone
Said come on baby, throw me a bone,
I'll sing you a song, never leave me alone

And I promise if you take me home,
I'll sing you a song, never leave me alone
Said come on baby, throw me a bone,
I'll sing you a song, never leave me alone
