Lyrics

[Intro]
"Seneler sürer her günüm"
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah
"Yalnız gitmekten yorgunum"
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah
"Seneler sürer her günüm"
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah
"Yalnız gitmekten yorgunum"
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah

[Verse 1]
I usually love sleeping all alone
This time around bring your friend with you
But we ain't really going to sleep at all
You ain't gonna catch me with them sneak pictures
In my city I'm a young god
That pussy kill be so vicious
My god white, he in my pocket
He get me redder than the devil 'til I go nauseous

[Hook]
She asked me if I do this every day, I said "Often"
Asked how many times she rode the wave, "Not so often"
Bitches down to do it either way, often
Baby I can make that pussy rain, often
Often, often, girl I do this often
Make that pussy pop and do it how I want it
Often, often, girl I do this often
Make that pussy pop and do it how I want it
Often

[Verse 2]
Infatuated by the fame status
She wanna ride inside the G-Class grey 'matic
I come around, she leave that nigga like he ain't matter
That girl been drinkin' all day, need to change bladder
She's just happy that the crew's back in town
She 'bout to go downtown for a whole hour
If I had her, you can have her, man it don't matter
I'm never sour, I'm just smokin' somethin' much louder

[Hook]
She asked me if I do this every day, I said "Often"
Asked how many times she rode the wave, "Not so often"
Bitches down to do it either way, often
Baby I can make that pussy rain, often
Often, often, girl I do this often
Make that pussy pop and do it how I want it
Often, often, girl I do this often
Make that pussy pop and do it how I want it
Often

[Bridge]
Oooh, the sun's risin' up
The night's almost up
The night's almost done
But I see your eyes
You wanna go again
Girl, I'll go again
Girl, I'll go again

[Hook]
She asked me if I do this every day, I said "Often"
Asked how many times she rode the wave, "Not so often"
Bitches down to do it either way, often
Baby I can make that pussy rain, often
Often, often, girl I do this often
Make that pussy pop and do it how I want it
Often, often, girl I do this often
Make that pussy pop and do it how I want it
Often

[Outro]
"Seneler sürer her günüm"
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah
"Yalnız gitmekten yorgunum"
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah
"Seneler sürer her günüm"
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah
"Yalnız gitmekten yorgunum"
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah
