Drake – Good Ones Go lyrics

Oh yeah, oh yeaah
Uh uh, oh yeah, oh yeah

[Drake - Verse 1]
Summer's mine
I swear I said about a hundred times, I'mma need it back
I wish that you would come and find me
Just to tell me that I haven't changed, girl I needed that from you
I'm getting money just taking care of me girl
I'm spending time just taking care of me right now
I'm getting money just taking care of me girl
Should be tired of taking care of me right now

But the good ones go
The good ones go, if you wait too long
But the good ones go
The good ones go, if you wait too long
So you should go
You should go, before you stay too long

[Verse 2:]
Don't you go getting married, don't you go get engaged
I know you're getting older, don't have no time to waste
I shouldn't be much longer but you shouldn't have to wait
Can't lose you, can't help it, I'm so sorry, I'm so selfish
Uh, uh, I've been chilling in the city where the money's thrown high and the girls get down
In case you're starting to wonder why my new shit's sounding so H-town
But when it's all done baby I'm yours if you're still around
She knows, she knows, she knows

    Okay I have a correction after listening to the song over and over. The meaning is that drake wants his good girl to wait on him while he is out doing his thing. And if she is still available when he is done, he will be there for her. But he does not want her to miss out on a good thing with someone else while waiting. That is why he says "you should go"

    Drake has a good girl but he wants to go out and do his own thing. He doesn't want to lose her but he knows its selfish for him to ask her to stay. He tells her she should go because he doesn't want to be selfish and make her miss an opportunity with someone else possibly better. But Drake also tells her not to get married or engaged and this is because he doesn't want to lose her. He just wants to go live his life and then come back to her because he knows shes a good girl. But part of him wants her to go be happy while the other part wants her to wait for him.
