Written By: Dee Jonez

Look at ya man homie he's gettin mad
Cuz he knoe the whole world gonna like my swagga
He a hater somethin we call a jacka
Aint the movment he's moving backward
My swag something like a habbit
Enemy gettin mad know he can't have it
Bad times dissaper just like magic
This is one part of my swag tatictis

Wit this swag no need to be fresh
Cuz I'm always at my best and nothing less
S aint for super when its on my chest
They tried once but they can't put it to rest
Now we can be like a ford n go explore
Be a honda get on one accord
Be saved from the lexus like ya and get busy
Or have a mercedes n be done by 550 lord ride wit me
