Gold Watch

[Intro: Lupe Fiasco]
Let's peruse the essentials of cool
A brief study of the things so instrumental to Lu
That make me feel flyer than lobby's of W's
A disclaimer: just a rhymer, no credentials from a school
Let's peruse the essentials of cool
A brief study of the things so instrumental to Lu
That make me feel flyer than lobby's of W's
A disclaimer: just a rhymer, no credentials from a school


[Verse #1: Lupe Fiasco]
In my Fall of Rome jeans, my Head Porter wallet
My Neighborhood shirt and my Eddie Cheng clock shit
Might not go to college, but my street smart polished
Like the black fingernails of that punk rock Logik
Do the knowledge, man you can't be punk from projects
Firm disbeliever in your punch clock promise
Was trading off my comics, I was taking them to school
One of Jay-z boys, now I'm skating in your pool
Not to be rude, I'm just hating on your rules
Like a young 50, I'm on my world tour
Good morning Singapore, I'm bringing the sun wit me
From the Robert Taylor homes to Africa's slum cities
I am American mentally with Japanese tendencies
Parisian sensibility so stay out the vicinity of
Yeah, yeah, them niggas over there
It's just yeah, yeah, now look at what I wear


[Chorus #1: Lupe Fiasco]
Got my, gold watch and my, gold chain
With my, fancy car and my, diamond ring
With my, fancy broad and she, foreign
So it's, no words and it's, no slang
And I'm, no trick and I'm, no lame
Its' just, so slick that she's, so game and it's
Yeah, yeah, she love it over here
It's just yeah, yeah, she love it over here (repeat 3x)


[Verse #2: Lupe Fiasco]
I like Diptiyque candles and, Maharishi sandals and
Dita sunglasses, Purple Murder surface samples
I like False T-shirts, Dover Street is off the handle
Such a good designer, Junya Watanabe gotdamn you
I like Yohji Yamamoto and a Mackro, Solo
Leather Gucci belts and Guilty Brotherhood polos
I like Mont Blanc pens and, Moleskine paper
I like Goyard bags and, green Now-or-laters
Monocle magazine and Japanese manga
Futura, Noz Furatus and HTM trainers
 I love Street Fighter 2, I just really hate Zangeif
Only Ken and Ryu, I find it hard to beat Blanka
Keep a Wee Ninja hanging, and an Unkle album banging
If you negative in energy, then stay out the vicinity of
Yeah, yeah, them niggas over there it's just
Yeah, Yeah, now look at what I wear


[Chorus #2: Lupe Fiasco]
Got my, gold watch and my, gold chain
With my, fancy car and my, diamond ring
With my, ghetto broad and she's
So plain, gotta couple scars and one of those long names
She a, fight a nigga and cusses with no shame
And her, ex-man had her bagging up cocaine, but she
Yeah, yeah, she love it over here
It's just yeah, yeah she love it over here (repeat 8x)


[Verse #3: Lupe Fiasco]
But my most coveted thing is a high self-esteem
And a low tolerance for them telling me how to lean
See the most important parts are the ones that are unseen
The wings don't make you fly and the crown don't make you king
Now God don't like ugly, ain't too happy bout pretty
I am ignorance's enemy so stay out the vicinity of
Yeah, yeah, them niggas over there
It's just yeah, yeah, now look at what I wear


[Chorus #2: Lupe Fiasco]
Got my, gold watch and my, gold chain
With my, fancy car and my, diamond ring
With my, ghetto broad and she's
So plain, gotta couple scars and one of those long names
She a, fight a nigga and cusses with no shame
And her, ex-man had her bagging up cocaine, but she
Yeah, yeah, she love it over here
It's just yeah, yeah she love it over here (repeat 8x)
