Violin sernetto intro

[Chorus: Kanye West](fEma){B Choir}
(Little girl...please stop your crying... cus)
(I'll be late for...)I'll be late for that, baby I'll wait for that{that}
If you had a taste of that, you'd probably pay for that(I'll be late for...)
I'm comin in when I feel like{that...}
To turn this muh'fucker up only if it feels right (I'll be late for...){that}
I'll be late for that, I can't wait for that
I think I was made for that
So I'm comin in when I feel like(I'll be late for...){that}
To turn this muh'fucker up only if it feels right
(Now Baby girl...please stop your crying... cus I'll be late for)

[Kanye West]
Stop all your blood claat cryin, I was flyin(I'll be late)
Made it to school with barely 'nuff time to sign in(I'll be late)
Yeah I hear the alarm, yeah I hear you mom
Yeah yeah I don't wan' be broke when I'm 31(I'll be late for...)
They said the best classes go to the fastest
Sorry Mr. West there's no good classes, and that's what yo' ass get(I'll be late)
Not even electives? Not even prerequits?
You mean I missed my major by a couple of seconds?(I'll be late)
Now I'm in the shop class or the basket weavin
With all the rest of the muh'fuckers underachievin(I'll be late)
Man, this is a insult
I went to junior high with all of them and they been slow(I'll be late )
If I can catch the beat then slow down the tempo
Just notice at the end if I'm too late for the intro(I'll be late
Will I make it from the student loans to a Benz-o?
Like old folks pissin, I guess it all (Depends), oh, oh
... Stop you're cryin baby


[Kanye West]
You know when you be late you miss all the lights
That's right (that's right) that's right (that's right)
(I'll be late for...)And when you get back she gon' start up a fight
That night (that night) that night
(I'll be late for...)Baby it's too late for that, lately I've been takin it slow
Try and make it to the party 'fore the guest list close(I'll be late for...)
With the freshest hoes, the professors know
We about to get real unprofessional(I'll be late for...)
Like them eskimos, what would you do for a Klondike?
Or two dykes that look Christina Milian like
(I'll be late for...)Hmmm, I'll be on time for that
I ain't thought of no line that could rhyme with that
(I'll be late for...)Yo, I'll be there in five minutes, five hours later
I'll be there in five minutes, gon 'head ride with it
I'm so live with it, look how I did it
Been bullshittin but I finally arrived with it
I know it's late and I took all year but{Baby girl...please stop your crying}
You can stop complainin cause I'm finally here, yeah

"I'll be late for that" {that}- [repeat 4X]
