Now this is where I rea-lly, let go

Not looking for glam, attention or fame
I really just want to do my thang

Let me do my thang, do my thang

It might seem strange
But I’m about to 2 do my thang

Music that ‘ll make u move your feet
cus Lil ElijahJ really bringing the heat
Beats so hot, that u just cant stop
Moving & grooving until ya body drops

Music is in my heart & soul
taking over my mind & but I’m in control
Not looking for glam, attention or fame
but I really came to just do my thang

Let me do my thang, do my thang

Let me show u what this young boys about

Go ahead & frown
