Grow Up Lyrics

slowthai – Grow Up Lyrics

[Verse 1: slowthai]
Raised in Midlands, don't know the half of
Why you keep your move on like Narcos
True rich champion, trim at the barbers
Used to get a board-up pack for a star
Out of order, every bathroom
Weighing up scores, got half for a bastard
Pints and peanuts the life I chose
Mice and his cheese, between foes and cones
One-fifty for a ninety-nine cone
Where’s my change? Got changed on the road
Pop goes the weasel, gripping on your throat
Power like Lethal just curry goat
[? 0:36] emotion, bare pussy
Couldn't believe what I see and I just see a pussy
Couldn't try it with T ’cause T ain't a pussy
You slang B like a BB bullet
I was with Lloyd, unemployed, nonprofit
I was with Bows, selling O's out a cottage
Cream get the money then the cream got clotted
Had to leave Lings 'cause Lings was a [? 0:48]
Deal with the drought, I'll check into Norwich
Farmers are coming, I link with the Brummies
Anorak, so I got no worries
Fingers in the air for my brothers on porridge
Apply the pressure like Uncle Bully
Just like you, fam, I used to get bullied
'Til I dragged them down by their hoodie
Kicking and screaming like, "Go get your mummy"
Thought I was bummy, had to get money
Entrepreneurs sell wraps to a mummy
Always had a laugh when nothing wasn't funny
Hop out the thugs like I was Bugs Bunny

[Chorus: slowthai]
Growing up too fast
Nothing don't last
And you can’t move forward
If you’re stuck in the past
Growing up too fast
Nothing don't last
Said we can’t move forward
If we're stuck in the past

[Verse 2: Jaykae]
Raised in Small Heath like Tommy Shelby
Past my south blood, nobody helped me
Chicken and chips every day ain't healthy
Ain't had it hard if your mum and dad’s wealthy
Back then fiends might ask for a fix
Right now it's fans asking for a selfie
There I got a voice in my head and it tells me
To give a man a smile on his face from Chelsea
I used to buy a cheese, that was four one fours
Now I get the weed out when I'm on tours
Used to be fist fights, now they want swords
Volley a man's head with my rapports
[? 1:49] to find baseball bats
Tell a officer I brought man the wrong sports
Don't make 'em like me no more bredrins
Dem man are playing and I'm like concourse
Can't get a ten deck so I get twenty
Tryna make the whole country smoke plenty
Can't tell a badman there's no entry
Bang, bang, bang 'til the whole place empty
Still thank God every day I can emcee
Just so nothing on the roads don't tempt me
I ain't met no one who lived to a century
I think smoking's fucked up my memory

[Chorus: slowthai]
Growing up too fast
Nothing don't last
And you can't move forward
If you're stuck in the past
Growing up too fast
Nothing don't last
Said we can't move forward
If we're stuck in the past

[Interlude: slowthai]
You looked up to me, you see
So why waste your life tryna grow up when you can enjoy every moment
You know what I'm saying?
Don't get old
Be bold
Don't get told
Be bold

[Outro: slowthai]
Raised in Britain, no you isn't
Soft like kitten, I'm tough like Simmon
Kitchen sieving
Billy and Knotts and nothing ain't sitting right
Raised in Britain, no you isn't
Soft like kitten, I'm tough like Simmon
Kitchen sieving
Billy and Knotts and nothing ain't sitting right
