[Jacob 'Pop' Life]
I'm in the south of France with my man Lu
Just getting my mind right!

Yooooo, c'mere girl!
C'mere, c'mere!

[Lucien a/k/a Papalu]
Yo man, relax, man!
You can't talk to girls like that out here!

I mean shit, I mean, they girls, aren't they?

I know they're girls, but yo, they'll like to have the saviour faire

Yo yo, Lu! That girl right there, she looking at me, man
Yo, help me with her- yo I know she can't speak fuckin English
Help me out

Alright... Bonjour, Mademoiselle


Vous êtes trop mignonne

Yeah yeah, hold on!


Yo what she's saying? What's she saying?

Okay, alright

Trés trop jolie - c'est quoi ton prénom en fait?


Haha, magnifique!

Yo, what you saying to her?

T'as une ptte jupe la, je trouve trop chanmé!

Get the fuck out the way, man!

Eh, à quoi vous jouez la? (Wassup?)

Play moves, lay moves like Pokemon
Poke you with the soaky mon, drink you like tea
Keep you right what I wanna be with it
Until you call quit it, admit it, my ways is acidic
Burn through your defenses, the fences you put up
won't keep me out, I'm about to put the wood up
Understand ain't nothin underhanded
I'm tryin to get the upper hand, keep you undemanded
I mean un-demanding, coming in for a landing
In layman's terms, I'm here to earn your poetry
Words passed your lips to be grabbed by my ears
They hear how good I grant it, the tree's planted

Ooh~! J'aime beaucoup ta façon de parler
Ha! C'est tellement sexy, j'ADORE tes lévres!

Ha, check it
Pretty lady, watch the way I Deen it
Stand to my eyes, watch the way I seen it
Both havin dirty thoughts, won't have to clean it
Do a wild love song and play it like I mean it
We ain't exempt from the temp
The atmosphere's lit up like hemp - gasoline it
Al Green it with +Love & Happiness+
Burns so pure that skin is sure that need the Vasoline it
