"Hood Country Club" (2017)

Fit In lyrics - David Dallas

It's all the same old story
The way they come and go
This revolving door ain't for me
I ain't tryna fit in no more
No more

Keep on actin like you up on some shit
I'm done tryna fit in
Don't try tell me about what's cool or not man
I'm done tryna fit in
Looking like the next man you a yes man
I'm done tryna fit in
Done tryna fit in
Done tryna fit in
Dial 1-1-1 I'm a kill it real quick

I'm done
Ain't holding my tongue for, no one
Ain't tryna be down
With this crowd, or that crowd
Sitting on Pitchfork tryna figure out
What's good, what's hot
Showing off to your friends like you're top notch
Last year man you were into pop rock
Saying that Drake is a soft-cock
Now you at his show with a top-knot
I've not got time for the lip service
Calling that shit wack is a disservice
To the word wack
It's worse
Stop writing cheques that you can't cash, on a big purchase
It's not really worth it
Know the way that I act might make people nervous
From a land more known for the sheep than the beats
But I still ain't going where I'm herded
Ya heard it

It's all the same old story
The way they come and go
This revolving door ain't for me
I ain't tryna fit in no more
No more

Keep on actin like you up on some shit
I'm done tryna fit in
Don't try tell me about what's cool or not man
I'm done tryna fit in
Looking like the next man you a yes man
I'm done tryna fit in
Done tryna fit in
Done tryna fit in
Dial 1-1-1 I'm a kill it real quick

Don't care like I used to
These days feeling more neutral
Just being truthful
Seen dudes tryna flex but
They hop on a wave like it's the next bus
And it really gets messed up
When they just buy things they've seen 'Ye copping
You don't birth trends
You're not popping
Brad and Angie, mostly adopting
I've put that phase in a coffin
Being on my own buzz ain't no problem
Dave don't login
Fuck your timeline
Got better things to do with my time
Get paid, write rhymes
Catch Federer games from the sidelines
Go fine dine with the wife, sipping on white wine
Play Xbox Live in the nighttime
Nobody gonna dim my shine
Nobody gonna kill my buzz
These dudes say peer pressure is a bitch
That's why we are not peers cause
Type of thing that'll end up in tears cause
Fuck a bandwagon around here cause
Used to "wanna be down with the cool kids"
Had to do it big guess I outgrew shit

It's all the same old story
The way they come and go
This revolving door ain't for me
I ain't tryna fit in no more
No more

Keep on actin like you up on some shit
I'm done tryna fit in
Don't try tell me about what's cool or not man
I'm done tryna fit in
Looking like the next man you a yes man
I'm done tryna fit in
Done tryna fit in
Done tryna fit in
Dial 1-1-1 I'm a kill it real quick

Hood Country Club lyrics - David Dallas

No surprise here this is just the way things go
Wanna be Spieth on the 18th hole
Want the lifestyle of the affluent
But when your parents still rent
It ain't happening
Decided as a kid you ain't having it
Gotta get some Polo
Gotta get some Palace shit
Cop the new Nikes or risk embarrassment
Same with the jeans
That's the law of the averages
Same with the whip
That's the law of averages
Want a new chick
This could be the catalyst
German logo
The pursuit of happiness
Fuck slow-mo
I'm about a rapid fix
Think of pro athletes with no management
Gettin money, we just never taught to handle it
Spot up shooters, we never taught to handle it
Just sign here twenty-five percent per annum shit
Probably be the same 'till we inanimate
Hear they serve gear and the cannabis
In the hood country club

Here in the hood country club
In the hood country club
Never been no scrub
Rock the cheap shit and get no love
Don't nobody ever grow up
Here in the hood country club
In the hood country club
Never been no scrub (No scrubs)
Rock the cheap and get no love (Don't love)
Don't nobody ever grow up (Don't go grow up)
Don't we all want the same thing? (Same thing)
Hope the money gonna change things (Change things)
But it never does
When you in the club

They say I worry about the wrong things
Never catch me sipping a Rekorderlig
Never opted into Kiwisaver either
Still won't be caught dead in no Ford Festiva
Fuck plans for retirement
Got cash for the Yeezys
We buying it
Things we learn on rap vids
We applying it
Naysayers want ammo
We supplying it
Squares could never grasp the environment
'Till they realise they inside of it
So can't be turning up your noses
When even you tryna keep up with the Joneses
Turns out we just got different Joneses
And even real country clubs full of posers
For most of us it's our first rodeo
Parents never left no portfolio (... shit)
Hood pass intact know the riff-raff
You call when police fail to get your shit back
Who never leave leave the house if the gear's mismatched
Pour the Henny up and kick back...

Here in the hood country club
In the hood country club
Never been no scrub
Rock the cheap shit and get no love
Don't nobody ever grow up
Here in the hood country club
In the hood country club
Never been no scrub (No scrubs)
Rock the cheap shit and get no love (Don't love)
Don't nobody ever grow up (Don't go grow up)
Don't we all want the same thing? (Same thing)
Hope the money gonna change things (Change things)
But it never does
When you in the club

Country club
Country club
No scrubs
Don't love
Don't go grow up
Country club (The country club)
Country club (The country club)
No scrubs
Don't love
Don't go grow up
Don't we all want the same thing?
Hope the money gonna change things
But it never does
When you in the club

Don't Rate That lyrics - David Dallas

[Hook:]
I don't rate that
Shit
I don't really rate that
Take that how you wanna take that
(Get your pay snatched or your face cracked
When you tryna hear it you can save that)

Man, I don't rate that
Shit
I don't really rate that
Take that how you wanna take that
(Snake cats slay the same tracks
Fuck up outta here you better make tracks)

[Verse 1:]
Cause of where I'm raised at
Single parent household
Two seven eight cat
I don't really take naps
Tryna get it ASAP
Cause we with the bourgeois shit
I wouldn't trade that
Wish that I could aim at these finance companies in the hood
Posing like they doing something good
Fuck outta here
Always putting more brown people on the ads
Knowing damn well they tryna trick us out of cash
Sports stars front the campaigns, ain't it sad
Really selling out, do they understand?
We don't rate that shit
I'm coming with the ace real quick
Do it big time like my breakthrough clip
Never been on that only god can save you tip
If I could tell the kids one thing, tell 'em
See the world, book a flight
It might just change you quick
What you read don't make you shit
What you do does
And it's all about crew love
Never rated dudes that forget where they grew up
All we do is do us
Ain't from the States
Ain't from the trap or the bando
I'm from a place where they got tinny houses
On plain wooden fences and white gates
None of my mates went for holidays beside lakes
Got an issue with what I say?

[Hook]

[Verse 2:]
James Brown for the payback
Sean Combs saying take that
I turn the tables like A-Trak
Don't think it's cool cause it ain't that
You picked wrong AK cat
To talk about race jack
Sick of hearing how you hate that
They buying everything that ain't tax
Blame it on the Chinese
Say it's foreign buyers
But if a Brit buys up
You don't bat an eyelid
Fuckin' wilin'
Could be third-generation migrants
But we out here ticking up on last names
What's next? Gonna check what shape their eyes is?
To tell the truth it probably wouldn't be surprising
Seem to have an issue with what the country comprises
Xenophobes on the rise and
I don't rate that shit
Need another place real quick
To get the truth now
Cause the mainstream news
Is some matrix shit
Happy-go-lucky clickbait
Seeing spin every which way
Like I played Nadal on the red clay
Don't nobody care long as their rent's paid
A lot of faux outrage
Get forgot about the next day
People speak on it before they press play
That's the shit that I hate
Running off your mouth when [?]
Frontin' like that should be the norm

[Hook]

[Outro]

(Fuck off, fuck off, fuck off...)

"Falling Into Place" (2013)

The Wire lyrics - David Dallas (feat. Ruby Frost)

[Hook: Ruby Frost]
Easy, what you want
Could be another thing, it is a power of its own
Easy, what you've got
One minute it is here, and then another it is gone

And higher, and higher, I'm going on a limb
The wire, the wire, is growing very thin
And you can call it, but I'm never gonna wanna leave
The wire the wire, though it's giving up on me

[Verse 1: David Dallas]
It's time to knuckle down
No time to run around, acting crazy its real
Nothing Fugazi until I'm Swayze in ghost
I'm trying things that seem fucking crazy to most
As kiwi kids it ain't in our nature to boast
So we be playing things down we be making jokes
In case we choke rather make out like we didn't try
Than bare the shame that we built a plane that didn't fly
Livin' lies, man if only we could live a little
The end might not be great but it was good in the middle
You may get chastised but the work you did outlives you
And if you did it from the heart know that they'll forgive you
May nobody forbid you from this first step
On a high wire it could be your worst yet
It could be your best I walked on it once or twice
Thought I'd stumble to my death
Though I feel it getting thinner
I'm still standing on the edge

[Hook]

[Verse 2: David Dallas]
Yeah, attracted to this life
Or the facade of it
Ain't what it seems, still I wanna be a part of it
I carry some scars from it
You never know if you can carry a film if you've never been the star of it
Put a couple large on it, going for the Oscar no
Thought I'd be happy with the Emmys then you got it wrong
I had to leave 'em behind although we got along guess the trains leaving today
You're either off or on
Dunno if I got it wrong I live with it though
Play some good defense
Stick with it though best shape of my life
I'm sick with it though and up on the main stage
I bought tickets though and I can't quit the show
Though I know its such a long way down, been such a long way now
That I've forgotten who I used to be
Now doing this is the only thing that's true to me

Transmitting Live lyrics - David Dallas

Get up on my frequency
You can catch me broadcasting legally
This raw South Pacific scenery
What you see in me is nothing like that Peter Jack Flint
I never been the type to treat the truth like it's Mr. Fantastic
It's really so damn sick, I'll stick to the damn script
You think you're the man, I'm here to fuck up your plans quick
A little pedantic with the details kinda hand grip
Of this so-called ex persons speak my language
Don't write about this, listen up
You need to put your pants down cause you miss too much
'and the quest for getting bread ain't no telling where we'll be lead
Till I'm dead...another young Polynesian try to go with Instagram
I never donated the posies that didn't know my name
I done say Grace at the table, I'm thinking I changed
Been the same since primary school
Rolling on them BMXs, you were riding, fool
Thinking that it might be cool to play some Dr. Dre today
I was 'tryina learn this shit

Now I'm transmitting live
Feel the vibe, you can even ride
Or collide, you won't be denied
Tell a friend, could tell a friend
We're going in, transmitting live
Now I'm transmitting live
Feel the vibe, you can even ride
Or collide, you won't be denied
Tell a friend, could tell your friends
We're going in, transmitting live

On the TV up in high fidelity, don't give a fuck what they telling me
Catch a felony for real, they try to mute my voice
But can't monopolize the airwaves, now there's a choice
To let me hoist some of these issues on my shoulders
Nice getting colder, different role, different soldier
None of us can get a mortgage
Only thing that they reporting is some E Channel flings
All the music they recording sounds like people can't sing
And an athlete can't swig without a PD allegation
My boy just got the not, on board with three applications
New degree, congratulations, getting accusations
When they try to cut him off, say he ain't on a hunt for jobs
It's like fuck it, dog, didn't sign up for this
Had to grab this mic and try some other shit
Me and my production clique took that off the bucket list
Years later, look at what we coming with

Now I'm transmitting live
Feel the vibe, you can even ride
Or collide, you won't be denied
Tell a friend, could tell a friend
We're going in, transmitting live
Now I'm transmitting live
Feel the vibe, you can even ride
Or collide, you won't be denied
Tell a friend, could tell your friends
We're going in, transmitting live

Runnin' lyrics - David Dallas

I got the new world in my view
On my journey I pursue
I said I'm running, running for the city
I got the new world in my view
I got the new world in my view
On my journey I pursue
Lord said I'm running, running for the city
I got the new world in my view

They ain't got no muscle, no hustle
No backbone, I stand alone
Not tripping, just saying, I'm different
Ain't hanging on the coattails of the next man
Passport in my left hand, thinking that you are next
Heck, hope you ain't holding your breath, man
Cause I'm out here, I'm hungry, I don't play around, trust me
Ain't hexed my drive since my Honda Civic got rusty
And my girl said she loved me, it's funny
Just thinking back, study hard for that 9 to 5
Like I thought that I'd be good with that
I was dreaming, still dreaming, spoil it on me like Willie Beaman
Still performing like Al Pachino, we stuck around in tuxedos
With my peoples, we growing up 'stead of seeing others slowing up
Tint squad, we throwing up, every time we showing up

Get it while I'm living
All I ever hear is the clock tick, tick, ticking
So I'm 'bout my business
And I'm running, I'm running
I'm running with you now
They don’t wanna give it up
We gon' make it out
Get it while I'm living
All I ever hear is the clock tick, tick, ticking
So I'm 'bout my business
And I'm running, I'm running
I'm running with them, yeah
They don't wanna give it up
We don't make them ask it

It don't get no greater, feel like I'm on fire
Feel like I'm Johnny Storm, feel like I'm volatile
Explosive, get close enough to notice
Your girl act out of character when she see me approaching
Ain't pouching I'm just saying it's nothing
You punching above your weight, I'm something
She ain't seen no substitute in that A team
That's B.A., Baracus, that BS, that whackness
Get no play in my axis, make 'em jump like AJ Hackett
Guarantee you in these boots they couldn't walk one mile
I really need to go and hang it up like a drunk dial
So behind the times they should probably rock a sundial
Shattering their dreams, I could make Big Pun smile
Music from the soul, don't need them to help me
If they fiending for the flash, they should take another selfie
Said I'm running, I'm running like Mo Farah so dapper
Swear the whole world could go against me, it don't matter, man

Get it while I'm living
All I ever hear is the clock tick, tick, ticking
So I'm 'bout my business
And I'm running, I'm running
I'm running with you now
They don’t wanna give it up
We gon' make it out
Get it while I'm living
All I ever hear is the clock tick, tick, ticking
So I'm 'bout my business
And I'm running, I'm running
I'm running with them, yeah
They don't wanna give it up
We don't make them ask it

I'm on the chase
Won't wait another day
My plan is falling into place
We ain't got much to lose
I wanna taste
Won't wait another day
My plan is falling into place
We ain't got much to lose

Get it while I'm living
All I ever hear is the clock tick, tick, ticking
So I'm 'bout my business
And I'm running, I'm running
I'm running with you now
They don’t wanna give it up
We gon' make it out
Get it while I'm living
All I ever hear is the clock tick, tick, ticking
So I'm 'bout my business
And I'm running, I'm running
I'm running with them, yeah
They don't wanna give it up
We don't make them ask it

Gotta Know lyrics - David Dallas (feat. Rokske)

I am, I am, I am, I am

Swinging for the stands, let me see your hands
Try to mash out on this life, fame and do the dance
What’s the plan, man, I’mma hit the city and sigh-see
Lot of imitators, you can tell them to bite these
Hide these on the sideline, like Spike Lee
I’m playing outta town, someone tell them to invite me
My flight leaves early tomorrow, let’s get acquainted
The town’s looking kinda dull, it’s time to paint it
Walking around this whole spot like we made it
If they ain’t talking about us, we will name it
Don’t give a fuck who they put up on the A list
See, anything we don’t like, we replace it
Change it, rearrange it, what’s your favorite drink?
Once you take the shot this what we be chasing
With, don’t make a dif’, yeah, you in the basic
Chick, tryna get the grip, this is what it is

Don’t be blinded by the lights
Killing day, we up all night
Pour it up, girl, it’s alright
I just gotta know
You wanna be my main squeeze, baby?
I gotta know
Will you give me what I need, baby?
I just gotta know
You wanna be my main squeeze, baby?
I gotta know
Will you give me what I need, baby?
I just gotta know

Yeah, get it right, roll with the winners
And if anybody asks, you don’t know when you’ll be finished
Ain’t nobody business and you can say ah, just ain’t no limits
This is my piece here, I be a hard act to follow
Probably heard when I see the bank balance tomorrow
For now it don’t matter, it’s no jetter …ain’t got no talent and no manners
I’m no fan of and don’t dabble in scrub shit
So if you need a cab you won’t have to cover it
Just pour it up, pour it up like Rihanna
Good girl gone bad, Charlotte to Samantha
Sex and the City fan, I know you can hand with
This, any photo looks good if the angle fits
But you final, you don’t need no camera tricks
Tryna get the grips, just what it is

Don’t be blinded by the lights
Killing day, we up all night
Pour it up, girl, it’s alright
I just gotta know
You wanna be my main squeeze, baby?
I gotta know
Will you give me what I need, baby?
I just gotta know
You wanna be my main squeeze, baby?
I gotta know
Will you give me what I need, baby?
I just gotta know

How Long lyrics - David Dallas (feat. PNC & Spycc)

How long
How long

Pour another drink, hot on some Patrone, this is soda with this vodka
It’s me in my zone, don’t give me a speech, I don’t wanna know
You should tell your friends to leave now, we should be alone
Don’t tell me I’m wrong, just tell me how long
How long must I wait if we both feel the same way
All you gotta say is it’s on

Girl, you are no actress, caught me with the dope
Fooling no one, whose intelligence are you tryna insult
With that act, I’m a smart man when it comes to affairs of the heart, man
Real fly, I just take off, baby, I can’t land either
When you hear me out your speaker, get you high, Wiz Khalifa
Till you think that I’m a keeper, could be at home playing Fifa
But I’m out here talking to you right now
Can’t hear everything you saying ‘cause the music’s quite loud
Talking ‘bout how you’re a student, you’re in UNI right now
Nod about your boyfriend and how you tryna lose him right now
Don’t be stupid, don’t be foolish, I’m not clueless right now
Talking about a slumber party, me and you should lay down
Ah, jokes, but a lot of truth is said and I wouldn’t mind be a fly on the wall
If you were getting dressed
Oh, you thought about possible places you could rest your head tonight
And you probably thinking mine

Pour another drink, hot on some Patrone, this is soda with this vodka
It’s me in my zone, don’t give me a speech, I don’t wanna know
You should tell your friends to leave now, we should be alone
Don’t tell me I’m wrong, just tell me how long
How long must I wait if we both feel the same way
All you gotta say is it’s on

How long I gotta wait before we go on a date
I’m a baller but I got that mean, independent trait
Generating all the winds, you and your mates all attend
You should bring them to the place, maybe we can get it in
Baby, with the pen I’m crazy, is anyone you hail
We can share a wild moment while we bumping Jessie Ware
Yeah, you got that scent, that flare, that’s so rare
I’m open, what you packing in the rest, got my player card revoking
Smoking on the green mixed with the codeine mixed with …
Had to tell me that you came right, hear you got a man
Well, he ain’t like me …as high as aeroplanes
We both know your boy’s a lame, what you doing? You should leave him
You play them wicked games, what you doing for the weekend? Let me know

Pour another drink, hot on some Patrone, this is soda with this vodka
It’s me in my zone, don’t give me a speech, I don’t wanna know
You should tell your friends to leave now, we should be alone
Don’t tell me I’m wrong, just tell me how long
How long must I wait if we both feel the same way
All you gotta say is it’s on

Man, I love the …I can’t say that I love but I can say that I love to ah
And I know I’m blunt but I’m just too grown for these games
Little too cold for these lames and I really do like your demeanor
Hey, your attitude is fiery and I feel airy in your presence
Baby, don’t deny me of these blessings, wanna intertwine with all your essence
In the dark let’s embark, let’s go and escape the sun
Wanna hear you say my name, say my name in your native tongue
You looking delicious, oh, them thighs, I just wanna bite them
Know you feel a lil’ bit gone, a lil’ bit faded, just don’t fight it
See, I never was the player type
Couldn’t see the point in being with a girl that you don’t wanna make your wife
But you stay the night
I never do play, only when I’m single … make the most of this time we have
When we close, can we toast? So baby, grab a glass so you can

Pour another drink, hot on some Patrone, this is soda and vodka
It’s me in my zone, don’t give me a speech, I don’t wanna know
You should tell your friends to leave now, we should be alone
Don’t tell me I’m wrong, just tell me how long
How long must I wait if we both feel the same way
All you gotta say is it’s on
Just tell me how long

My Mentality lyrics - David Dallas (feat. Freddie Gibbs)

Ice running through my veins, I’m the coldest, just give me half the time
I be running with it like I stole it
You would notice if you paid attention properly and play the lottery
I work with better odds, my favorite game is Monopoly
You copy me, get it? Understand I’m a prodigy
Ain’t no stopping me and my movement, man, this is prophecy
This probably the reason why the trying to sell economy
Ever far along in the sequel, but no apology
You ever hear inaudibly come from my lips
Like Beyonce adding aberrations, ain’t gonna say shit
Won’t be no prerecording it either, I just give them the ether
Freddie up on the feature, you should know the procedure
Fool, don’t act like you don’t hear the chicks singing the song
Y’all made me a believer, out to get it at all costs
Like a young mob boss, go getter, going out like this was V for Vendetta
Trend setter, I’m the coldest

You’re drawn to the side
S with the line, flew in, bout to fall from the sky
Just some thoughts for the mind
I’ll take a glimpse at the time
What’s the plan? Believe the world is mine
And my mentality is money orientated
Money orientated, anything for the paper
And my mentality is money orientated
Money orientated, anything for the paper

Fuck the world and everything in it
Drive away from the pigs, the same thing really
And if you… then we got them fangs in it
454 in my motor, work with some change in it
Jumped off of that label and started my own shit
Don’t need no nigga to hold my dick, bitch, I’m all on my own flip
Say my attitude like Nicky from the zino
I’ll probably die buried alive, Freddy Tarantino
Keep your shoe box and your rubber bands
Rocking dope, I’m racked up …I lay back in my lectra
Every nigga from my hood tryina make 100 stacks plus
Looks like every nigga is born as actor, get wrapped up
All I wanna do is smoke a stoggy and get loaded
And go fuck with my old bitch and my new hoe got demoted
But once I’m with this dick, I don’t know, she might just jump back on it
Got my dough hoe and my blow right off the coast of California
Bitch, we robbing, bitch, you holding

You’re drawn to the side
S with the line, flew in, bout to fall from the sky
Just some thoughts for the mind
I’ll take a glimpse at the time
What’s the plan? Believe the world is mine
And my mentality is money orientated
Money orientated, anything for the paper
And my mentality is money orientated
Money orientated, anything for the paper

Money orientated, legacy on my conscience
Long as I did it my way, then fuck a pro, I ain't bothered
Don't bother popping off with the lips
Like dropping the flame in a Molotov mix
Now with your best in, 'fuck a flame thrower
Harder than the south beach when King James came over
Painted over your little tags with end to end burners
I've been a quick learner, to win, I went further
Push hard to drive like Sebastian Vettel
Put my foot to the floor so hard that I broke the pedal
Killing everything you think that I made a pact with the devil
Ain't no high strings that you can pull on so fuck Geppetto
I'm my own puppet master, pour a glass of lager, sitting in mi casa
You ain't in my clasa, you bastards, I fathered your style, my ability
Got you sweating me but I never feel the humidity
My AC is on, nothing in this world that can take me on
So pump your breaks, be gone, I'm looking way beyond
What's within my reach, I'm tryina grow my wing span till I got down some beat
From Auckland City, the new Deli to Gary, Indiana
The world gonna be my oyster and don't come on a platter
If they don't wanna bet it, and I do
Then I'mma keep taking it as long as I'm alive
So try stopping me, man

Local Celeb lyrics - David Dallas

Stepped up in your town, came to shut it down
Not tryna step on anyone’s toes, just do my thing and bounce
If you lost our whereabouts, where we are I couldn’t pick it on a map
So don’t think I’m tryna move in with you cats, just relax
Don’t feel threatened …version of Wayne, too
As if he on, too, tryna stunt on me ‘cause he’s been on a plane, too
It’s not a big deal, not tryna show out, you know…
Like he got money to blow out, knows the bounces, gets them thrown out
King of the clubs but he’s never left his home town
And you can keep your women, bro, don’t be mess talking us, we just slipping, bro
This all be really famous in your city, bro
I’m sorry I ain’t in it, bust it, take a pitch and throw ‘em

I know what’s going down, everywhere’s the same
Round here it’s like cheese, everybody knows your name
You’re a local celeb, right, local celeb, right
Local celeb, live the local celeb life
I know what’s going down, everywhere’s the same
Round here it’s like cheese, everybody knows your name
You’re a local celeb, right, local celeb, right
Local celeb, live the local celeb life

Girl, I know your type, posing on that Instagram
Tear into every other guy, I hear like it’s a mess way that you don’t give a damn
What these other girls think
And tell a snobby belly qualify to serve drinks
Never worked a real job but you model sometimes
Heard you an actress, too, you hosted club nights
You tryna sing as well, you really love the lights
Long as they’re on you, who gives a fuck, right?
Don’t hate the player, hate the game
You might just date a 40 player for the fame
You wanna be alright, just to be a name
But look too thirsty and it just makes you a lame

I know what’s going down, everywhere’s the same
Round here it’s like cheese, everybody knows your name
You’re a local celeb, right, local celeb, right
Local celeb, live the local celeb life
I know what’s going down, everywhere’s the same
Round here it’s like cheese, everybody knows your name
You’re a local celeb, right, local celeb, right
Local celeb, live the local celeb life

I seen stars before and you ain’t one
Picked up a brush, it doesn’t mean you can paint, some
Sparkles up and you thought you could take one
I tell the true stories and I hate all the fake ones
I seen stars before and you ain’t one
Picked up a brush, it doesn’t mean you can paint, some
Sparkles up and you thought you could take one
I tell the true stories and I hate all the fake ones

Southside lyrics - David Dallas (feat. Sid Diamond & Mareko)

278, you already know
It ain't really much to look at but it's home
Used to bus from the old bar which was to go
Into town rolling through Otahuhu depot
Thinking how we ended up here
Yeah no secret there's some people doing tough here
Could be rough here, if your parents come here from an island
In the hope of a better life for the child and an education
But they ain't got time to keep an eye on 'em
They workin' every day, they won't even see retirement
School don't teach you to deal with this environment
Another poly kid left to his own devices
And you look at what they reinforce
When they talk about us doing crime, playing sports
Standing in the dole line, or in the court
Think it don't affect us all?

Look at boys from the Southside
If you looking from the outside
Some scared to death when they see us
Cos every 10/7 they featurin'
Boys from the Southside
But we represent it with pride
When you feel you come from the bottom
Til you reach the top, ain't no stopping 'em
Boys from the Southside

It's about time, all the people talking shit now
Figure out why, this town is so influential
The real melting pot, immigration central
Culture, our knives be so instrumental
But still we never acting like we too damn special
Don't ever let nobody say we all just criminals
Round here it ain't all that simple

Raised there, struggle city a place where
A population, Hori, fob slash amazing
Most of 'em work 9 to 5 to pay rent
Go to church and sing songs and pray for better days
Better pay and a better location
The kids choose sport over education
And dream that one day the All Blacks take them
Somewhere, exposed to the drugs and the gang life
Think it's cool to get involved, end up in the can right
Got a lot of teens pushing prams before they see life
Cos their parents did the same thing so it seems right
Seem right to say the same, a product of pride over law so
When they got my back like the tat on my torso
That's why I give back, ask where my awards go

To the schools in the Southside
If you're looking for me outside
Some scared of death when they see us
Then they talk shit when they leave
Like the boys from the Southside
Are good for nothing so fuck 'em
Give 'em no chance just cuff 'em
If it was up to the cops and the judges
The boys from the Southside

Would be outlined
Shot on sight
Here we got crime in the area
If you got shine then it's any up
Only cos we broke tryna get our accounts right
What's going in our minds, six words
How we gonna get by
I don't know exactly
But we ain't gonna wait in the dole line

Yeah 267 landed a aeroplane
Back when my parents came
From the islands
With a Bible and a pair of J's (yeah Jandals)
Trying to set a better way to get our educa-
Tions that we found street smarts and a free pass to the green pastures
Around these parts we were blessed with the big heart
That can see past all the eat asses
Aw, what you thought I was gonna talk
All about walking with gangs where the drugs be
How about I touch on how
David Lange ran the country, right where the thugs be
John Walker might run at the tops, long distance
Scott Dixon on the track now
Rather a hand up than a hand down
All my people stand down

When I'm back out the Southside
Black white with the brown pride
Even yellows part of the picture
The boil up's a perfect mixture
Here out the southside
And we rep this shit til the death
Walk with my head held high to the sky
My T-shirt say Southside til I die
The boy from the Southside

The bodies outlined with an aura
You can see it so clearly
I mean it looks like a Shifnal dairy
Or a Scorpions home crowd cheering
Or a Otahuhu mums eyes tearing
Up when the sons graduated from OC
26 to the 27 to the 29 of the 09 that's where the home be

Follow lyrics - David Dallas

Yea if you come from where we come from
No we don't ever run from
Gettin money in a lump sum just to pay it back later
If the family need a favour then it ain't nothin major
Paper changes hands quicker then a dj hits the fader
That's just how we do how we grew hard to understand
That as a sour youth mum explainin that you ain't allowed to choose
Your family's your family they gonna look out for you
Still a samoan boy don't forget about your roots
Growin up in AK where they don't forget their rugby boots
Didn't play much five-eighth I would play way more kurupt
And snoop play way more mobb deep boom boom say hey all my people who
Been goin against the grain but don't forget bout why we really do
What we do where we came from got our names from
People I lay next to in the ground when my day comes
Chance to make my music a gift for me that they brung
Think I ain't proud then you mistaken uce

[Hook]
That's just how we do how we're raised island roots auckland ways
People overseas wonder if I'll ever change
But I came from the future
Today is tomorrow
That's why what ever we do
Then the world gonna follow [3x]
Celebrate it with my fam
Feel like we just hit the lotto
The world gonna follow [2x]
Man I came from NZ my today is their tomorrow

I got dem laid back island genes
I don't need no drama
In my ie lavalava listenin to dear mama
With my peers sippin lagers reminiscin on the years
Made a tears that we shed for the departed disappeared
So for real rod see you when I get there
I still got some things that I need to tackle bout to get my headgear like I'm Thurston or Kronfeld man I'm certain
If things round here were perfect
Feel I'd be half the person
I was birthed in Middlemore for a reason
On any day in auckland could see all four seasons
So we're born believen the sky ain't the limit its just somethin to react to
Things are lookin cloudy now but the sun will crack through
Umbrella packed too you can read it like I'm tattoed
Proud of where I'm from it pulls me back like
A lasso laugh how we used to pay for sky before the rent
This that hamo that palagi pito saute aukilagi shit

[Hook (2x)]

Right There lyrics - David Dallas

So just keep it right there, keep it right there
If we don't keep it down, down somebody might hear
Let me make this quite clear, that I don't care if you don't
So if you're feeling me, scream my name girl you go
Don't try to give me kudos, know I'm numero uno
Can never question why game, we ain't laying kudos
It's more like doing Judo, gotta know what to do though
It's a context sport no knowing this could be'
Feeling like I'm from Pluto, another world
Know you ain't feeling these other dudes that make you wanna hurl
Listen girl, roll with the wind there's no more bad luck, maybe later
You could be stripped like a stat shot player, haters
Tryna cut my grass they ain't never done a lot
Slowly getting 'I'll always be the grass, win the lot
High fucking, high feeling like a younger nas
Put the accolades and the only thing that's coming fast

Keep it right there, keep it right there
Said this could be a breeze
Keep it right there, keep it right there
Stop listening to me
Keep it right there, keep it right there
Real, real, real
Keep it right there, keep it right there
Take notes

You've been talking up the game, make sure not to do the same
The promise overdue, never sold my soul to do my fame
Worst the river I'm expecting some ribbon
I don't mess with the chicas, hit me 2 pops
See what happens from here ain't really set in stone
Plenty dudes step into the place when they're tryna get you home
Or just tryna get you for, I'm not tryna doing either
I'll be studying the night, pulling an all nighter so
Roll around if you want a tutorial
All I do is practical, I'm not into boring you
Theories for the lecturers, I'm not tryna tutor you
Your brain responds better to some 1 on 1 schooling
Get the feeling that you're learning quick
Get the feeling that you're really trying to please
Like someone who works for tips
Get the feeling you could murder this, so keep it right
There girl instead of turning quick
Oh yeah

Keep it right there, keep it right there
Said this could be a breeze
Keep it right there, keep it right there
Stop listening to me
Keep it right there, keep it right there
Real, real, real
Keep it right there, keep it right there
