    Lyrics

    [Intro]
    Every second, every minute, man I swear that she can get it
    Say if you a bad b*tch put your hands up high,
    hands up high, hands up high
    Tell 'em dim the lights down right now, put me in the mood
    I'm talking 'bout dark room, perfume
    Go, go!

    [Verse 1: Kendrick Lamar]
    I recognize your fragrance (hol' up!)
    You ain't never gotta say sh*t (woo!)
    And I know your taste is
    A little bit (mmm) high maintenance (ooh)
    Everybody else basic
    You live life on an everyday basis
    With poetic justice, poetic justice
    If I told you that a flower bloomed in a dark room, would you trust it?
    I mean write poems in these songs, dedicated to you
    And you're in the mood for empathy, there's blood in my pen
    Better yet when your friends and them
    I really wanna know you all
    I really wanna show you off
    F*ck that, pour up plenty of champagne
    Cold nights when you curse this name
    You called up your girlfriends and
    Y'all curled in that little bitty range I heard that
    She wanna go and party, she wanna go and party
    N*gga don't approach her with that Atari
    N*gga that ain't good game, homie, sorry
    They say conversation, rule a nation, I can tell
    But I can never right my wrongs
    Unless I write it down for real, P.S

    [Hook: Kendrick Lamar (x2)]
    (Anytime)
    You can get it, you can get it, you can get it, you can get it
    And I know just know, just know, just know, just know, just what you want,
    Poetic justice, put it in a song

    [Verse 2: Drake]
    I really hope you play this
    Cause ol' girl you test my patience
    With all these seductive photographs and all these one off vacations
    You've been takin'
    Clearly a lot for me to take in
    It don't make sense
    Young East African Girl, you too busy f*cking with your other man
    I was trying to put you on game, put you on a plane
    Take you and your mama to the motherland
    I could do it, maybe one day
    When you figure out you're gonna need someone
    When you figure out it's all right here in the city
    And you don't run from where we come from
    That sound like poetic justice, poetic justice
    You were so new to this life but God damn you got adjusted
    I mean I write poems in these songs, dedicated to the fun sex
    Your natural hair and your soft skin,
    and your big ass in that sundress (ooh!)
    Good God, what you doing that walk for?
    When I see that thing move,
    I just wish we would fight less and we would talk more
    And they say communication saves relations, I can tell
    But I can never right my wrongs unless I write them down for real
    P.S...

    [Hook: Kendrick Lamar (x2)]
    (Anytime)
    You can get it, you can get it, you can get it, you can get it
    And I know just know, just know, just know, just know, just what you want,
    Poetic justice, put it in a song

    [Verse 3 : Kendrick Lamar]
    Every time I write these words they become a taboo
    Making sure my punctuation curve
    Every letter is true
    Living my life in the margin and that metaphor was proof
    I'm talking poetic justice, poetic justice
    If I told you that a flower bloomed in a dark room, would you trust it?
    I mean you need to hear this
    Love is not just a verb, it's you looking in the mirror
    Love is not just a verb, it's you looking for it maybe
    Call me crazy, we can both be insane
    A fatal attraction is common
    And what we have common is pain
    I mean you need to hear this
    Love is not just a verb and I can see power steering
    Sex drive when you swerve, I want that interference
    It's coherent, I can hear it, mmhmm
    That's your heartbeat
    It either caught me or it called me, mmhmm
    Breathe slow and you'll find gold mines in these lines
    Sincerely, yours truly
    And right before you go blind
    P.S...

    [Hook: Kendrick Lamar (x2)]
    (Anytime)
    You can get it, you can get it, you can get it, you can get it
    And I know just know, just know, just know, just know, just what you want,
    Poetic justice, put it in a song

    [Outro]
    I'm gon' ask you one more time homie,
    where is you from? Or it is a problem?
    Ay, you over here for Sherane homie?
    Yo I don't care who this n*gga over here for,
    if he don't tell where he come, it's a wrap! I'm sorry.
    Hol' up hol' up hol' up, we gon' do it like this,
    OK? I'ma tell you where I'm from OK?
    You gon' tell me where you from,
    OK? Or where your Grandma stay,
    where your mama stay, or where your daddy stay, OK?"
    Enough with all this talkin'.
    Matter of fact, get out the van homie.
    Get out the car before I snatch you out that motherf*cker homie.
