lyrics

Jon Watts | I'm Great | Lyrics

One day I was walking down the street
I’ve got beats in my feet
I need something to eat
I’m going to bounce from this town
to get a pound of mouse pals
Around smiles I frown
to put down the bound styles
The ground is shaking making fakers
statement makers
hate your neighbors
Do favors like Quaker saviors
helping people meet their makers
Singing it out forsaking traits of culture
I’ve got a vulture
He flies around telling me how profound I am
that I should form a band
and call it Hand up Your Rear
I began something here
Freakin’ can we appear
to be first or rehearse any curse
and see purse immersed in dirt
Coming from a place where it hurts
and this verse is over

I’m great
Living in a Jon Watts state
I take a late fate date rape
rivers and great lakes
The tape may break
say we can belate fate delay
I’m playing the beat
forget your crates
OK

I’m playing with the beat
infinity
Living with me can be easy
Let it be
Everyone sees me and please don’t feely
speak of the bee’s knees and leave me fiending
I’ve got some problems
got to solve them
Look at how my soul takes ahold
involves them
it’s a long bomb falling from the bogs of Boston
and I’m long gone looking at the fog
I’m long gone looking at the fog.

It's like
I’ve got something that I could have told you
I’m not telling what my soul involved
because I’m out doing mics
got to be nice
living at night
I’m gonna live in building tenemented within the price

I’m great
Living in a Jon Watts state
I take a late fate date rape
rivers and great lakes
The tape may break
say we can belate fate delay
I’m playing the beat
forget your crates
OK
