Smile for the Cameras

You can’t imagine what I’m feelin like
I mean if this is hard work – what an easy life
I just get on stage, they start screamin like
there’s a war going on over where I sleep tonight
but you gotta know they don’t intend on sleepin right?
just in case my mom is listening I’m trying to be polite
you ever seen so many women trying to be the wife?
I’m used to hearing I’m the ish, now I believe the hype
so I’m standin in the mirror doin interviews
like, “whatcha think of me dog? cuz I am into you!”
and that’s only on the days I’m being cynical
If I was anyone other than me I would be miserable
you’re thinking that you shouldn’t take it literal
but I meant every single word, every syllable
I am a star in my own sky
take my picture if you don’t mind, or just flash me

I JUST SMILE FOR THE CAMERAS
I JUST SMILE FOR FOR THE CAMERAS
COME ON AND SMILE FOR THE CAMERAS
FLICK FLICK FLICK FLICK POSE
I JUST SMILE FOR THE CAMERAS
I JUST SMILE THE FOR THE CAMERAS
COME ON AND SMILE FOR THE CAMERAS
FLICK FLICK FLICK FLICK POSE

half an army at the after party
so let’s throw that new Blackout on and see what happens shawty
your girl keeps grabbing on me—
she wanna make a baby, I don’t,  but she can practice on me
but she’s talking ‘bout herself, I’m getting sick of that
I’m the only topic that I’ll talk about, you getting that?
I gotta drink, she’s like “let me get a sip of that”
nah this ain’t Patron, I filled the bottle with Aristocrat
cuz we’re ballin’ on a budget, gotta make rent
we don’t make expensive toasts here, it wastes bread
but we party like we’re made men
and take shots until the game ends, with no misses
we keep no Mrs. if they ain’t 10s
and if you aint good lookin then we ain’t friends
if you’re 23 or older than you’re an-cient
the E-Channel’s got my head messed up; you can blame them

I JUST SMILE FOR THE CAMERAS…

we got shooters all around but they’re one and a half ounces
who the heck invited him? the one in the whack outfit
if you want respect from a dime, you better dress to the nines
aren’t I wonderful at counting?
how can you’re boy be so fly
I mean, I am dunking from the free-throw line
soon as she sees what I’m wearing then she’s gonna try to leave
so you can hate on the fit the ends justify the jeans
yeah I rock like this
wear’em kinda skinny, makes my knots look big
I hope that’s not your chick
cuz she’s standing right over there taking pictures
when you look like this, they’re gonna notice you
another night, another photoshoot
first things first we got a show to do
so please pull your cameras out or just flash me
