[Hook]
If we were kids
I'd want to give you everything that you would want
Those other boys
They gave you toys, but all they wanna do is

Keep up
Keep up, keep up, keep up
That's all I want, keep up
Keep up with me, keep up

Keep up
Keep up, keep up, keep up
That's all I want, keep up
Keep up with me, keep up

[Verse 1]
I guess I'm fucking now
I'm getting used to it
It's cause I shine, and I ain't gotta use a crucifix
Fuck the fussing and fighting and arguing to this and that
And "why you bein' mean to me Donald?" I never texted back

I know it's comin' quick, wishin' I could fast forward
Tell these nice girls they're the reason that I'm an asshole
Omega to Alpha male, because of that dollar bill
When I worked the mail room I ain't have a shot in hell

I called her ass for two months and heard shit from her
These girls couldn't care less when the chips under
The chips are up and on my shoulder, you heard me?
I take it out on girls who don't even deserve it

The girls I tried to hit last year, I still might
Karmas a bitch who doesn't suck, but I still like
If we were kids I had the black k-swiss and Reebok
If we were kids I wouldn't act like this but we not

[Hook]
If we were kids

Keep up
Keep up, keep up, keep up
That's all I want, keep up
Keep up with me, keep up

Keep up
Keep up, keep up, keep up
That's all I want, keep up
Keep up with me, keep up

[Verse 2]
You made a mistake
These dudes man you bathing in apes
Finding you is like finding Asians I hate
But they say I got a fetish, nah I'm skipping all of it
Black and white girls come with a lot of politics

That's all I was saying
I'm a proud man
They wanna holla when they see your name on Soundscan
Her name Mercedes but she push a brown focus
And she's doing coke in front of me, but act like I don't notice
"There any breakage in that Trojan?"
She see what she wanna see
So I make her take Plan B in front of me

Women talk shit on men like all day
But it's Pete Wentz, goes both ways
They too busy stabbing hoes like OJ
They too busy trapping pros like Kobe
The only thing I put before me is do re
If you had told me the truth we'd be okay

[Hook]
If we were kids
I'd want to give you everything that you would want
Those other boys
They gave you toys, but all they wanna do is

Keep up
Keep up, keep up, keep up
That's all I want, keep up
Keep up with me, keep up

Keep up
Keep up, keep up, keep up
That's all I want, keep up
Keep up with me, keep up

[Outro]
It's alright
It's okay
It's alright
It's okay girl, it's okay
