Obeah 02:53
I praise the most high Give thanks (Hook) Watch dem friend deh Watch who you keep close ya Your glow up they phobia Some boi come with Obeah They would frown before they smile And they ain’t down, they just behind ya They would die before they ride ya They ain’t really on your side ya Watch dem friend deh Watch who you keep close ya Your glow up they phobia Some boi come with obeah They would frown before they smile And they ain’t down, they just behind ya They would die before they ride ya They ain’t really on your side ya (Verse) See if I met ‘em in the booth And all that they said is in the proof I see that they energy is loose And I see the enemy in you But when it’s a friend, I see a different picture I think your identity is you And when you say you always got me I figure you’re telling me the truth - nigga You see me coming out my doubt phase And I accelerate without brakes I feel you really trying to clout chase I push my liquor down without chase I’m already caught up nigga, word I don’t chase, I catch I just pree when a nigga move funny, so that I don’t break my back Boy relate, I can’t I keep it real for my girls I keep it real for my dogs, uh Bet you don’t think I deserve All of the things that I got, uh You see me winning giving side eye You say you happy for me but deep down inside You’d probably kill me in a drive by (drive by shots) A same kinda Obeah business A same kinda Obeah business A same kinda Obeah business A same kinda Obeah business (Hook) Watch dem friend deh Watch who you keep close ya Your glow up they phobia Some boi come with Obeah They would frown before they smile And they ain’t down, they just behind ya They would die before they ride ya They ain’t really on your side ya Watch dem friend deh Watch who you keep close ya Your glow up they phobia Some boi come with obeah They would frown before they smile And they ain’t down, they just behind ya They would die before they ride ya They ain’t really on your side ya (Bridge – Mr. Mighty) And these are the things that, when I reason with certain people, when I talk to certain people, I discover what they’re trying to do. Pretend like they’re friends. What you think they’re trying to do? They’re trying to unstabilize you. If you look to someone who is less off than you to give you advice, to make your life better, than you are making a big mistake. Once you know yourself, no man can trick you, you know? (1/2 Hook) They would frown before they smile And they ain’t down, they just behind ya They would die before they ride ya They ain’t really on your side ya They would frown before they smile And they ain’t down, they just behind ya They would die before they ride ya They ain’t really on your side ya A same kinda Obeah business A same kinda Obeah business A same kinda Obeah business A same kinda Obeah business
