[Verse 1: Azealia Banks ]
Back to the base, cocoa candy, fella's wanna taste
All these niggas want cream and a shake
Do you got the cream for the cake?
You’ve been pulling up the paint, tell me what it taste
Do you wanna be with a babe?
Keep away, running it away
Keep away, running it away
Hey, keep calling my name while you’re holding my frame
You know what I’m saying
Nigga do this right flame
Chiddy bang bang
With this pretty young thang
And the villains ain’t game,
Spilling champagne, got the ticket I’m game
Liquorice from to the 5th, broadway

[Hook]

She claiming uptown then she bring it down right
You take it up, up, then break it down, like
You strut your stuff and he wanna pound, right
You shake it up, then you shimmy down like ..

[Verse 2: Azealia Banks]
Shift my hips, left to the right, - aye, this shape looks better in the light
You can sip if you like
Chocolate deluxe, taste yummy on the tongue
Got your hunny on the hunt
Got your hubby in the front, winner of the bucks
It was never bout' the lust
The x and the o’s, the exes and hoes
I exit and ghost,
no escape through the goal
You shake when the pressure’s exposed
I’ma, I’ma, I'mma make it and know
I’ma, I'ma, I'mma take it and grow
I’m from Harlem, what’s a 8 to an o
What’s shake to a pole
What’s big for the boa

[Bridge]

Shimmy, shake it and keep it rollin'
Rotate it, circle it, and shift it and keep it going

Now you made it, and now he know it
Your shake’s the favorite, and now they want it
Shimmy, shake it, and keep it rollin'
Rotate it, circle it, and shift it and keep it going

Now you made it, and now he know it
Your shake’s the favorite, and now they want it

[Hook]

She claiming uptown then she bring it down right
You take it up, up, then break it down, like
You strut your stuff and he wanna pound, right
You shake it up, then you shimmy down like ..


[Verse 3: Azealia Banks]
Clap to it, I’m back to it, 212 it
It’s that knew it, that bad view, that half doin'
Yo eyes glued, on my view, better behave
Better maintain, or you’re in my square
Licking my sway
Just look at my cake, just look at my shake
Certified top grade
Little my I’m made, every time I ape
Every time I ace, I be on my taste
I be on my grapes, They be on my cake
Just give me my space, let me sip my shake
Mocho latte


[Hook]

She claiming uptown then she bring it down right
You take it up, up, then break it down, like
You strut your stuff and he wanna pound, right
You shake it up, then you
Shimmy down like ..


[Outro: x2]

Whether it’s A-train, or A-list
A bad bitch be fast flippin' the cash quick

Now ain’t this, so Harlem you got ends
I pops in, if pop trippin' you pop spend
