You Got Me (Live) [Dave Chappelle’s Block Party] lyrics

Jill Scott

[Interlude: Black Thought & Jill Scott]
Yeah, uh
Give it up one more time, Brooklyn
Make some noise for my man Common
Holdin' it down, reppin' the Chi
As we continue on, you are now rockin' with the best
Roots Crew from Philly
Number one sound system, come on
Uh
I think we gonna have some fun with this one right here
Uh
Good
Uh, I feel it comin' on
Hey (Uh)
Yeah, uh
One-two

[Intro: Jill Scott & Black Thought]
I'm gonna take my time (Uh, take your time)
When I search, I do find (Uh)
I'm gonna take my pace (Uh-huh)
When I use my mind, I win the race
I'm going to take my time (Uh-huh)
When I search, I do find
I'm going to take it slowly
To make sure that you know me
La-la-la, la-la-la, la-la
La-la-la, la
La-la-la, la-la, la-la-la
La-la-la, la-la, oh
You cannot put me in a box, no (Uh)
My soul just don't fit in one
I am the moon and the rising sun
My new sh*t has just begun
I can take you higher (Uh, uh, uh)
I can take you low (Uh, uh, uh)
It's not a matter of what I put on, no
It's just a matter of my soul

[Verse 1: Black Thought]
Somebody told me that this planet was small
We used to live in the same building, on the same floor
And never met before until I'm overseas on tour
And peeped this Ethiopian queen from Philly takin' classes abroad
Studyin' film, photo, flash, focus, record
And said she workin' on a flick and could my clique do the score?
And she loved my show in Brooklyn, but then we had to go
And when I stepped off the stage I took a piece of her heart
We knew from the start things fall apart and tend to shatter
She said, "Don't matter" and when I'm home, get at her
Through letter, phone, whatever, let's link, let's get together
sh*t, you think not? Like I went home and forgot?
Time passed, we in Philly, she up in my spot
Tellin' me the things I'm tellin' her is makin' her hot
Started buildin' with her constantly around-the-clock
Now she in my world like hip-hop, and keep tellin' me, tellin' me, tellin' me

[Chorus: Jill Scott]
If you were worried 'bout where
I been or who I saw or
What club I went to with my homies
Baby, don't worry
Don't worry, don't worry, you know

[Verse 2: Black Thought]
I'm the type that's always catchin' a flight
And then sometimes I gotta be out at the height of the night
And that's when she flip and get on some old
"Yo, that' ain't right, it's like I'm—
I'm on the side and you in love with your mic
I know you gotta get your paper, daddy, keep that sh*t tight
But, yo, I— I need some sort of love in my life, you dig me?
Now I was talkin' to my sister from New York City
She said she know this ball player and he think I'm pretty, psych
I'm playin', boo, you know it's just with you I'm stayin'
And when brothers is poppin' game, I don't hear what they sayin', psych
I'm playin', boo, you know it's just with you I'm stayin'
And when brothers is poppin' game, I don't hear what they sayin'
Now when you're out and on the move, think of me when you rhyme
Don't be listenin' to your homies, they be leadin' you blind
I can trust her, like I'm a king for real
Ayo, you know relationships get ill, she keep tellin' me— uh

[Chorus: Jill Scott]
If you were worried 'bout where
I been or who I saw or
What club I went to with my homies
Baby, don't worry
Don't worry, don't worry, you know

[Verse 3: Black Thought]
That snake could be that chick and that rat could be that cool cat
That's whisperin', "She tryin' to play you for a fool, Black"
If something's on your chest, then let it be known
See, I'm not every five minutes all on the phone
And on the topic of trust, it's just a matter of fact
That people be bitin' back and tryna fracture what's intact
And they'll forever be, I ain't on some "I'm a celebrity"
I deal with the real, and if it's artificial, let it be
I've seen people caught in love like whirlwinds
Listenin' to they squad and girlfriends
That's exactly the spot they whole world ends
Lies come in, that's where that drama begins

[Chorus: Erykah Badu & Jill Scott]
If you were worried 'bout where
I been or who I saw or
What club I went to with my homies
Baby—
If you were worried 'bout where (If you were worried 'bout where)
I been or who I saw or (I been or who I saw or)
What club I went to with my homies
Baby, don't worry, you— oh, oh, oh (Oh)

[Refrain: Jill Scott & Erykah Badu]
If you were worried (Oh)
'Bout where I been
Oh, baby, don't worry, don't worry
I'll take you everywhere
You know, no tricks
When I am faithful to you alone
If you were worried 'bout where
I been or who I saw or
What club I went to with my homies
Baby, don't worry, you know that you got me
If you were worried 'bout where
I been or who I saw or
What club I went to with my homies
Baby, don't worry, you know that you got me
If you were worried 'bout where
I been or who I saw or
What club I went to with my homies
Baby, don't worry, you know that you got me

[Outro: Black Thought]
There it is, y'all
Uh-huh, uh-huh
Uh, uh, uh
Say what?
Roots crew up in the place
I like that
Brooklyn
Jill Scott, Erykah Badu
Legendary Roots crew from Philly, ladies and gentlemen
Brooklyn
Party ain't over
The party's not over
Yeah
Roots crew from Philly

[Interlude]
I seen y'all boys on that double-X L
I seen it, too
Yeah, I don't like how y'all called me for it, though
I'm not bitter
Hahaha
See, I almost fought my publishers over that cover
I said, "Wait a minute"
