Y.A.L.A
Y.A.L.A

Go low, go Slow
Run like a polo
Up and down that pole
Like you're glowin' up a yo yo

Go low, go Slow
Run like a polo
Up and down that pole
Like you're glowin' up a yo yo

Yea yea, Y.A.L.A
Yea yea, Y.A.L.A

Alarms go off when I enter the building

Y.A.L.A
Y.A.L.A
Y.A.L.A
Y.A.L.A

I drink some Cointreau
Keep it in my poncho
Light up like Castro
Blow it up and get go

Pro when I set, go
Grow like an afro
Play like Ronaldo
Hard like I'm death row

Weight in kilo
Light as a pillow
Dance on my tiptoe
Like a Thai-box girl

(Pre-Chorus)
Yeah we Come come come
Yeah we come with some some
Get a glass of rum
With a gun and some pun pun
Oh fun fun fun
Let's get 'em undone
Take a hit on the bong
It's been so long since we hung

(Chorus x2)
Go low, go slow
Run like a polo
Up and down that pole
Like you're glowin' up a yoyo

YALA
YALA

Anti war war
M.I.A. underscore
I got the law law
Searching for me on tour

Bankin offshore,
Take a trip to Singapore
I need to earn like
I'm Julianne Moore

For the hour poor
Don't wanna ignore
That's why I say shit
So they can explore

My baby, I am more
My mommy I adore
I tried to stay pure
Can't take it anymore

(Pre-Chorus)
Yeah we come come come
Yeah we come with some some
Yea a glass of rum
WIth a gun and some pun pun
Oh fun fun fun
Let's get 'em undone
Take a hit on the bong
It's been so long since we hung

(Chorus x2)
Go low, go slow
Run like a polo
Up and down that pole
Like you're glowin' up a yo yo

Yea yea, Y.A.L.A.
Yea yea, Y.A.L.A.
Alarms go off when I enter the building

Y.A.L.A
Y.A.L.A
YALA

(x2)
Y.A.L.A, Y.A.L.A
I'm rollin' solo
You can take a photo
I'mma keep it raw raw

Y.A.L.A
Y.A.L.A

(Pre-Chorus)
Yeah we come come come
Yeah we come with some some
Yea a glass of rum
WIth a gun and some pun pun
Oh fun fun fun
Let's get 'em undone
Take a hit on the bong
It's been so long since we hung

(Chorus x2)
Go low, go slow
Run like a polo
Up and down that pole
Like you're glowin' up a yo yo

YOLO?!!!

I don't even know anymore
What that even mean though
If you only live once why we keep doing the same shit?
Back home where I come from we keep being born again and again and then again and again
That's why they invented karma
