Frank Ocean – Songs For Women lyrics

Hah, when I was younger I used to wonder like...

If I was singin' songs
Just to sing a song.
If I was singin' 'cause
That's what the bitches wanted.
I couldn't play guitar
Like Van Halen.
Had no secret chords
Like Saint David.
But you still came around,
Ate your lunch with me.
Used to park your car,
To try the bus with me.
But I would say
"Girl don't be dumb,
I'm ridin' shotgun. "
We could go to my house
After school, after school, after school.
'Cause my dad don't clock
Off till late, Off till late, off till late.
We could kick it in the living room.
Lookin' through my whole vinyl collection.
And you could teach me
How to slow dance or somethin'.
And I'ma give you chills
Harmonizing to Otis, Isley, Marvin.

And everytime somebody ask me
If I sing songs to get at women.
I say yeah,
They say no fair, no fair,
It's cheatin'.
I say shit, oh well, oh well.
And everytime a nigga ask me
If I sing songs to get at women
I say yeah,
He say no fair, no fair,
It's cheatin'.
I say boy don't judge
'Cause Hell, if you were me
You'd be singin' to her like
La da dada daa.
La da dada daa.
La da dada daaa.

Now I'm in the lab.
Always workin' late.
Always sleepin' past
The breakfast she makes.
She used to stop by.
Come an' holla at me.
Put her purse down,
Try to pedal at me.
She don't do that no more,
No more, no more.
Don't even listen
To the songs I record
But she be bangin'
That Drake in my car.
I'm so far gone.
She stay blastin'
Trey and his songs.
All damn day long,
It's like she never heard of me.

Now everytime somebody ask me
If I sing songs to get my women
I say naw,
They say
Okay I don't believe it.
I say no, I swear I never do it.
And everytime a nigga ask me
If I sing songs to get at women
I say no
He say
Who do you think you kiddin'?
I know you, you stole my girlfriend.

Fair enough.
You see
I just don't play fair.
But it's fair enough.
'Cause your girl broke my heart.
I'm singin' la da dadaa
'Bout heartbreak.
And now I'm signin' la da dada daa.
'Bout love lost.
Ooh. Ooh. Ooh. Ooh.

Damn, I'm sayin' though like all I write is love songs. I mean I try, I
Come to the studio. I, you know what I do. What you think I do it for, huh?
Yeah a huh. But you ain't listenin', never. But if you were you might fuck
With it haha, yeah.

All these songs for women,
Songs for women.
Songs for you, baby.
For you.
