Yeah shoot a bitch down
See me 'round, see me pow
And I'm shooting AKs
SK, RPK, HK
Young nigga I aim it at your face
To the moon, I'm in space
Yeah I just bought my mom a new Wraith
Thanking god for a brand new day
And I'm on the road, I'm just thinking 'bout your face
I'm just thinking 'bout your face
Thinking 'bout your face, I been thinking 'bout your face

I really think you mines lil baby
I hope you shine lil baby
But this shit takes time lil baby
This shit takes time lil baby, yeah

You know time is of the essence
Girl you gotta be patient, you gotta be patient
Time is of the essence
