SWAY - Little Derek

rate me


[Chorus: x2]

Little Derek's Doing Okay (yeah)

Little Derek's Doing Fine (fine)

Little Derek's Doing Cool (cool)

You know how we do

[Verse 1:]

Stepped out my house i'm feelin fresh and brand new

Olu did the trim rhianna done the hairdo

And everything i wear's new, Maharishi jacket, Puma top, boxfresh jeans and Nike cambu

Sprayed a little versace dreamer on me too

so every girl who pass is like ooh wooh

Police don't pull us over like woo woo

cos their kids watch MTV and Channel U (U)

But life ain't always been fine like baby blue

cuz when u do UK rap you're number two

cuz the USA ain't givin us space to break true

so i'm on the grind tryin to pioneer and break-through

gotta keep the punters happy, to tango it takes two

and it seems like i'm the rapper the people take to

i've never had alot, with what i've got i've made do

now i'm blowin up up in this bitch like move, move, move!

[Chorus x2]

[Verse 2:]

Step out the ride i'm feelin nice and quite fly

I'm tryin to reach the top i see the top is quite high!

Steady on my grind tryin to get my face up in the source

so i keep my faith up in the forces in the bright, white sky

gettin calls from these record label bosses like 'Hi'!

and I've been inside their offices

and listened to their promises

but no-ones made me offers yet

that I could not deny

And i been makin profits of this my mix-tapes fly

life ain't always been pretty like nah

on the north side of the city

where it's gritty like kai

we did what we had to done to get by

hopin not to get caught up in no silly drive by

little derek wrote lyrics while the others got high

and he ended up in HMV instead of HMP

cos street life could only end one way

your friend cryin on the scene like why, why, why?

[Chorus x2]

[Verse 3: Baby Blue]

Knowin real fame that's what i used to dream about

that everyone would know my name and they would scream it out

knowin my song words and sing along to and i would walk down the street and hear blue, blue, blue.

my video's rotatin so i got these execs debating

about whether i'm taken

and these RnB guys is thinking the same thing

calling up my phone asking whether i'm dating.

I turned my passion to career how could i lose out

quit my 9-5 so i don't have to sell *shoes* now

my CDs are moving

that's the route that I'm choosing

so i got to make it thru, thru, thru

little Rachael used to look up to the sky too

analyse the planets and wonder if i could shine too

so now they ask how i'm doin i say

little Rachael's doing okay

[Chorus x2]
