Got no patience, cause I'm not a doctor

from Childish Gambino – V. 3005 Lyrics on Rap Genius


Wordplay on the word “patience”, which sounds a lot like “patients”, which are the clients that doctors see. He doesn’t have time to slow down with this girl because he’s moving so fast.

This wordplay also has a double meaning. When patients see a doctor, it’s because they have a problem with themselves that they want the doctor to either diagnose or fix. But Gambino doesn’t have the patience to play doctor and try to figure out or solve other people’s problems, because he has enough of his own to deal with.

This line is pretty similar to ones done by Big Sean, Joey Bada$$, Common and Wiz Khalifa.
