I. Crawl – Childish Gambino

I. Crawl – Childish Gambino

I have been listening to Childish Gambino‘s new album for the last week (on&off). I am surprised that Crawl is not his first single, it has a great beat and energy to it, but his first and second singles 3005 and Sweatpants are also fine choices.

The artist looks familiar you say? Well, many may already know him for his comedic side as he is best known as the actor Donald Glover. Still no bells? He plays Troy on Community! While watching his performance on Jimmy Kimmel I was fascinated by how different he was on stage. He still has that presence that keeps you watching him, but his demeanor is more focused and you can feel his passion for the music.

If you read my music posts, you know by now that I am addicted to words and the referential lyrics in this track really tickle me.

And I’m only looking back if I’m looking at her booty
(At her Boooty)

Yeah. I murder some, I murder one
Explain it all, Ferguson

Check it out!

Lyrics after the jump….

I. Crawl – Childish Gambino

[Hook] (x3)
Where we were, kinda thing
Betchya crawl, all alone

[Verse 1:Childish Gambino]
Who am I?
Rec League, I ain’t payin’ to ball
Y’all B-string like a broke guitar
And I still put it down like the family dog
Yeah. I murder some, I murder one
Explain it all, Ferguson
We ain’t gotta sing the same old love song
Cut a white girl with the same black gloves on
Yeah what you saying to it?
Old money look, new money go do it
Make ’em turn around in their lane like a U-ey
And I’m only looking back if I’m looking at her booty
(At her Boooty)
What’s the rationale?
They wanna smoke niggas when they Black & Mild
So we acting out
Ok cool

[Hook] (x4)

[Verse 2: Childish Gambino]
Blue dream by the bouquet ’til I’m blue faced on a Tuesday
(Can I have some?)
#NiggasBeLike
Put a plus eighteen on that e-vite
And I said what I felt, no re-write
Nah nah, they can’t hold me
June/July, drop something
I double dare you, I’m Marc Summers
I scorch winters, I burn autumns
Gut niggas, so Kurt Vonne
Elle Varner, got a crush on her
I gotta wait in line for that
Ain’t nobody got time for that
Ain’t nobody gotta rhyme with that
Too true like it’s 2 Chainz
Blue Blood like he both gangs

[Hook]
