“I did her, not just to say that I did it
But I’m committed, it’s just so many niggas hit it
That she’s just not the same letting all these groupies do her
And make it rain on her, and try to auto-tune her
But I’mma take her back hoping that the shit’ll stop
Cause who I’m talking bout y’all is hip-hop
I say she’s just not the same letting all these groupies do her
And make it rain on her, and try to auto-tune her
But I’mma take her back hoping that the shit’ll stop
Cause I (still love)”
