Root Boy Slim – I Want It Now lyrics

I've taken everything
My patience will allow
I see you up against the wall baby
I want it now

I want it now

You had a hard time
You got a easy time
This is rent time baby
I want it now

I got to have it right now

Don't make me wait
Waitin aint my style
Don't pencil me in for next week
I'll be dining with some 10
I knew King Farouk

You gave me false hope
For me that's poison
It breaks my rhythm you know
It breaks my rhythm you know

You gave me them false hopes baby
That was poison for me

Don't gimme false hopes
For a man like me that's a hard thing to do
Don't gimme no false hopes
For a man like me it's a bad thing to do

Do any damn thing you want

I want it now
Gimme that thing
Gimme that
Tell 'em Root Boy Slim slept there

I ain't got no American Express card
I don't need it
Everybody know me where I go
Everybody know me
From Tupelo to the Gulf of Mexico

Richard nixon tryin to get my tapes
Charles Carlson tryin to get in my convertment
White House on my case
White House on my case

Ain't been done
Since one eight one

Since the War of 1812
Root Boy was livin another life y'all
And he came over the White House fence
And he made it!

He made it, ladies and gentlemen
And that's the birth of the blues
That's the birth of the blues
Thank you
Thank you
That's wonderful, girls
That's wonderful, girls
