Lyrics

You Know Should

Written By: Jor'Dan Armstrong

Verse 1:
I’ma say it like this everybody ain’t rich
And everybody ain’t for ya they love to hate on ya
Cause they can’t do it like this so fresh take a picture in the mirror
And my team be the realest you gon’ know it when you hear us

Chorus:
My desire is to please Ya to be more and more like You daily
Each and everyday help me love the hate away
Cause’ my desire is to please Ya

Hook:
And you should know that (2x)
That’s just the way I live my life (2x)
You should know that
I just got to show the world that I
I’m blessed to live this life, you should know that

You should know that
You should know, you should know you should know that
I want you to know that
You should know, you should know you should know that

Verse 2:
They can’t do it like this I’m living life with no limits
And I aint gotta use a black card cause I get it unlimited
I rep it hard everyday best believe I don’t play
I’m from another planet
While everybody shooting threes I’m foreign and I’m flooring
While they snoring they can try but can’t ignore it
Living by the sword, tough like Ford knock on wood I know you bored
Living life like that each and everyday wouldn’t haven’t any other way
I don’t care the time or the place
I’ma life my hands anyway

Chorus + Hook

Outro:
Oooooo oooo oooo

I want you I want you to know that
