[Intro]
Ay bruh
Ay buckle up yo seatbelt man, for real
Nah I ain't, I ain't saying I'm your pops or nothing like that. Why you tripping?
I'm just saying man. My partner died behind that. That's all. I'm just saying

[Verse 1]
Cameras and traffic lights so adjust yo speed
Haters just arrived someone must love me
Shelltoes brand new, hope my jeans don't bleed
Heard Jordan raised his prices so I went OG

Sheriffs in unmarked cars dog remain low key
Keep the drugs out but hide the skittles and iced tea
You know - being black when the sun's out, wit ya funds out
Probably make a doughnut addict go pull his guns out

Deposit twenties, I'm only carrying ones now
Tip money, that's somebody rent money
If it wasn't on clearance then my parents never went near it
Guess I shared their spirit the way that I'm cent hugging

The cable ain't free and the fridge need filling
The wifi slow and the crib just rented
The oven works fine but we microwave dinners
And it stays off my mind as the tires keep spinning

That's why

[Hook x2]
Look I'll never say goodbye
Put the keys in and my soul come alive
Pedal hit the gas and I gain peace of mind
Problems disappear in the wind when I ride

[Bridge]
When I ride
When I ride
When I ride


[Verse 2]
Small case of the scatterbrain
Talking to myself about some trials I overcame
Hopefully when at a red light, a stranger that's to my right
Doesn't think I got that bluetooth ear thang, that's kinda lame

That's kinda vain, if that's yo picnic then I won't rain
Trends change at the speed of sound

Your shoes were the truth 'til you bought 'em and walked around
Your friends ran with you 'til you gathered your own style
Ways of a child
Where trucks were Tonka
Sound system was you beatboxing ya favorite number

Speeding into ya uncle's arms
Scrape ya knee and earn yourself a bowl of Lucky Charms
Thought black and mild was a candle scent in yo garage
Tripping, time has wings
85 in the 60s take my mind off things
Play my life as is, but don't rewind my teens
Did my thing then too, the whip was just on E, for real

[Hook x2] + [Bridge]
