Tightrope Lyrics

Artist:janelle monae

Songs Title:tightrope

Monae and Leftfoot

Whoaaa

Another day

I take your pain away

Some people talk about ya

Like they know all about ya

When you get down they doubt ya

And when you dip it on the scene

Yeah they talkin' bout it

Cause they can't dip on the scene

Whatcha talk about it

T-t-t-talkin' bout it

When you get elevated

They love it or they hate it

You dance up on them haters

Keep getting funky on the scene

Why they jumpin' round ya

They trying to take all your dreams

But you can't allow it

Cause baby whether you're high or low

Whether you're high or low

You gotta tip on the tightrope

(Tip tip on it)

T-t-t-tip on the tightrope

(Tip tip on it)

Baby baby baby

Whether you're high or low

(High or low)

Baby whether you're high or low

(High or low)

You got to tip on the tightrope

(Tip tip on it)

Now let me see you do the tightrope

(Tip tip on it)

And I'm still tippin' on it

See I'm not walkin' on it

Or tryin to run around it

This ain't no acrobatics

You either follow or you lead yeah

I'm talkin' bout you

I'll keep on blaming the machine yeah

I'm talkin' bout it

T-t-t-talkin' bout it

I can't complain about it

I gotta keep my balance

And just keep dancin on it

We gettin funky on the scene

Yeah you know about it

Like a star on the screen

Watch me tip all on it

Then baby whether I'm high or low

(High or low)

Baby whether you're high or low

(High or low)

You gotta tip on the tightrope

(Tip tip on it)

Yeah tip on the tightrope

(Tip tip on it)

Baby baby baby

Whether you're high or low

(High or low)

Baby whether you're high or low

(High or low)

Tip on the tightrope

(Tip tip on it)

Baby let me see you tight rope

(Tip tip on it)

And I'm still tippin' on it

Big Boi

You gotta keep your balance

Or you fall into the gap

It's a challenge but I manage

Cause I'm cautious with the strap

No damage to your cameras damn I thought that

Can I passy

Why you don't want no friction

Like the back of a matchbook

That I pass as I will forward you

And your MacBook

Clothes shows will shut you down

Before we go-go backwards

Act up and whether we high or low

We gonna get back-up

Like the dow jones and nasdaq

Sorta like a thong in an a** crack

Come on

I tip on alligators and little rattle snakers

But I'm another flavor

Something like a terminator

Ain't no equivocating

I fight for what I believe

Why you talkin' bout it

S-s-she's talkin' bout it

Some callin me a sinner

Some callin me a winner

I'm callin you to dinner

And you know exactly what I mean

Yeah I'm talkin bout you

You can rock or you can leave

Watch me tip without you

N-N-Now whether I'm high or low

(High or low)

Whether I'm high or low

(High or low)

I'm gonna tip on the tightrope

(Tip tip on it)

MMMMMM

(Tip tip on it)

Baby baby baby

Whether I'm high or low

Goblogtainment

(High or low)

High or low

(High or low)

I got to tip on the tightrope

(Tip tip on it)

Now baby tip on the tightrope

You can't get too high

(You can't get too high)

I said you can't get too low

(We can't get too low)

Cause you get too high

(You can't get too high)

No you'll surely be low

(No you'll surely be low)

1 2 3 Ho

 

Yeah yeah

Now shut up yeah

Yeah Now put some voodoo on it

Ladies and Gentlemen the funky is on section in the tribalist

Yeah OH

 

We call that classy brass

Ohhhhhhh

OH

 

Do you mind

If I play the ukulele

Just like a little lady

Do you mind

If I play the ukulele

Just like a little lady

As I play the ukulele

If I play my ukulele

 

Just like a little lady
