Little Simz – you should call mum Lyrics

you should call mum By Little Simz

Yeah, yeah
Jollof in an ice cream tub, that’s the Af’ in me, nigga
Never on time, that’s the black in me, nigga
Balance out the lows by any means
Know I stay high every day, keep a pack on me, nigga
I eat, everybody eatin’
Make fifty in a day and run it back to my niggas
I know how to be selfless
I know how to be the opposite, thin line in between
Left made right when I’m in between
Baby, show me somethin’ I’ve never seen
Guess we all tryna get by somehow
Somehow, I’m finally livin’ what I dreamed
Somehow, I managed to reap what I sowed
Somehow, I managed to see what I’m owed
Young blood, old soul
Can I die once and be born again?
Rat race of who wants to be a millionaire
If you ain’t got the answers, call a friend
Warnin’ them
Not everybody has pure intent
We all on the same boat
Keep your head up, stay afloat
Man, it feels like the zeitgeist

If this 2020, there ain’t no hindsight
If you see death is the next chapter, can you die twice?
Guess life forced me to calm down, get my mind right
Livin’ day by day, sleepless night by night
Bored out of my mind
How many naps can I take?
How many songs can I write?

Minimize bullshit, get down to business
Crabs in a barrel like everybody’s in this
Times we livin’ in don’t seem real
But it was never a fairytale to begin with
I just build my zoots and stay in tune
Cook my meals and make my tunes
Like there’s fuck else to do, ain’t that true?
Though I’ve always appreciated solitude
Yeah, I’ve always been cool with bein’ low-key
Don’t see me out here much, not me
I was on job, tryna get my coin
You was runnin’ on E, I was runnin’ with ease
That’s facts, I handle beats, then I handle bars like you wouldn’t believe
Tryna maintain my sanity
It’s a blind fight, mmh
Is anybody in they right mind?

If this 2020, there ain’t no hindsight
If you see death is the next chapter, can you die twice?
Guess life forced me to calm down, get my mind right
Livin’ day by day, sleepless night by night
Bored out of my mind
How many naps can I take?
How many songs can I write?
