Erykah Badu – That Hump lyrics

If I could get over that hump (mmmmm)
Then maybe I will feel better
Maybe I wont fall
If I could get over that hump (mmmmmmm)
Then maybe I will

Ooo, Lord knows I'm,
Lord knows I'm trying...
Said I'm tired (of this shyt)
This dope
But it make it better, ooh see
But it's dragging me lower, hey
Hey and I know it's just (ooh)
Lord knows...
But, If I (could get over that hump) baby
Then maybe I will feel better
Maybe I wont fall (I wont)
If I could get over that hump, hey
Then maybe I will

Ooo oh I just, I just want to fly (far) away (far away)
Ooh, I'm living check to check
I'm just trying to pay my rent
And I can feel it
Coming down around me and these children
A boy, a little girl and
She so pretty
Oooh feel me
We just need a bigger house
Who can come with a spouse, this building, building ooo
My brother's sleeping on my flo'
A bitch could us a little more yeaaow
Then maybe I will feel better
Maybe I wont fall (If I oooh)
If I could get over...

We are lying here
Know I want, I want, I want you boo, to know

I aint never done dope just cause
Only smoked a joint or two
Betwixt me and you, boy
I know people that do it

Day and night, night and day
Day and night and day and night
But I can't judge nobody
Cuz what if it was you
What if it was you
Bring it back girl, say
What if it was you

Knows I'm
Lord knows I'm trying
Oooo said I'm tired yea ooh
This dope, ooh
Tired of this dope
Without this dope
