I'll be late for that, baby I'll wait for that
If you had a taste of that, you'd probably pay for that
I'm comin' in when I feel like
To turn this motherfucker up only if it feels right

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
To turn this motherfucker up only if it feels right

Stop all your blood claat cryin', I was flyin'
Made it to school with barely 'nuff time to sign in
Yeah, I hear the alarm, yeah, I hear you mom
Yeah yeah I don't wan' be broke when I'm 31

They said, "The best classes go to the fastest"
Sorry Mr. West there's no good classes
And that's what yo' ass get
Not even electives? Not even prerequisite?
You mean I missed my major by a couple of seconds?

Now I'm in the shop class or the basket weavin'
With all the rest of the motherfuckers underachievin'
Man, this is a insult
I went to junior high with all of them and they been slow

If I can catch the beat then slow down the tempo
Just notice at the end if I'm too late for the intro
Well, I'll 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

I'll be late for that, baby I'll wait for that
If you had a taste of that, you'd probably pay for that
I'm comin' in when I feel like
To turn this motherfuckers up only if it feels right

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
To turn this motherfuckers up only if it feels right

You know when you be late you miss all the lights
That's right, that's right
And when you get back she gon' start up a fight
That night, that night

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
With the freshest hoes, the professors know
We about to get real unprofessional

Like them, eskimos, what would you do for a Klondike?
Or two dyke's that look Christina Milian like
Hmm, I'll be on time for that
I ain't thought of no line that could rhyme with that

Yo, I'll be there in five minutes, five hours later
I'll be there in five minutes, go '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
You can stop complainin' 'cause I'm finally here, yeah

I'll be late for that, I'll be late for that
I'll be late for that, I'll be late for that
