about

This song is about queer and women's rights, globally. It is a public naming of age-old views as laughable and disaffiliated with true progress. It's funny and sad.

lyrics

Verse:
Young lovers pop off in the club. Underage drinks spilling and chillin w special drugs. Boo and her friend, you and your mans exchanging jokes. You say "it's loud in here" then y'all disappear in a blaze of smoke.

The cab ride is $5.15 a piece to the eastside. You stop for a taco and pop, cuz you gotta eat, right? Guzzle down the cold brown fizzing, hurry up excited cuz you bout to cut like Nicole Brown Simpson. Fumble with keys, stumble thru the corridor, walking up two flights and then open up another door: you inside. Hit the light switch, find the remote for the Bose - Kells and Vandross always on deck for these hoes.

The soft neck kissing and the clothes get ejected. You promise in the morning that she'll still be respected. But then you look down and find some shit you ain't expecting...exposed bra, no titties...it's a man giving you a blow job.

chorus:
life gives you lemons boy. why complain? just suck it up, dog, then enjoy yourself. a little help for the average joe. don't take it as a diss this is just to let you know

Verse:
The rearview mirror says that you look great. Compliments, feeling confident on the way to your date. You're still a bit hesitant after the finalized divorce, but you realized it's time to get back up and ride the horse. So to speak.

So this week you accepted an invite from a cool guy. Great. Except it's on the other side of the city, but dude is real pretty, so you agree - fast lane driving sort of hectic.

You right turn on lavender lane and there's a siren. This cop pulls you over with his partner right beside him. You knew that you were rushing so you're ready for the ticket. You a grown ass woman. Can't nobody tell you different.

Officer Rickshaw walks up and he's frowning, mumbling something about new laws in the township. He says "your shit is about to get impounded!" But you can avoid it now if you're open-minded and down with a blow job."

chorus:
life gives you lemons, girl. why protest? just give it up because the world is yours, and when it rains it pours into the flow. don't take this as a diss, this is just to let you know (that i love ya).

(beyonce sample "it's too wide, it's too strong")
