Song lyrics:

[Intro: Ruslan & John Givez]
I be at the shows on time
No he dont
You could say thats a byproduct of my white privilege
At the shows on time
No he dont I be smoking ciggerates I got a problem
You could say thats a byproduct of my white privilege
He aint got no white privilege
They expect me to be on time
No they dont
Cause he got black people

[Verse 1: Ruslan]
I showed up to the show little early ready for sound check
He told me what are you doing you shouldnt be around yet
Well I didnt know Id be penalized for being punctual
Why are you getting energized and acting like the people didnt come to listen
Anyway where is the sub system
She said what sub system
Um, the one you agreed to provide
So the people are feeling the vibe
We dont want the show to start three hours late
Not trying to make you oblige
Of course we are faithful to rock
But we just want to make sure that this night goes great
Wait, you sure you aint got the pay
No, oh
Youll but it in the mail in a week or so
Ok, considering that we doing this for low pay
Is it ok if we just make sure the sound man
Stop freaking with the EQ
And keep tweaking things that dont need to be touched
Promise you well finish on time but please dont rush

(Chorus: John Givez)
Why oh why do they do me this way
Tell me you want to go then tell me to stay
This aint about money no
You dont even pay
But, we get another show and we came to play
Hands up now, get em up now (x3)
Get em up (x4)
Hands up now, get em up now (x3)
Get em up (x4)
Thats love

[Verse 2: John Givez]
Im bout to bounce the bouncer on his head
Cuz he dont know I get em bouncing
Took me for a chump instead
I listen to some Led Zeppelin
Before I stepped it in
Beleaf Melanin yelling in my ear
About the bed that he sleeping in
After the show I slap him
And go to my little corner
Preparation is my prerogative
Lint in my pockets here
Cause I aint getting paid
They letting the cause of Jesus be the reason for the slavery
Save it G
I know that hes real and know that hes aiding me
But I can smell your laziness
I know that you just playing me
For a little s**er with soft ways
But you dont know I shoot the fade with you on off days
Hakuna Matata
Tell em Im doing it for the love
You and your partners is trying to keep up
Its not enough


Me and my cuddies on the rise
We coming up
Listen to the crowd they be yelling and showing love
So why you gotta

(Chorus: John Givez)
Why oh why do they do me this way
Tell me you want to go then tell me to stay
This aint about money no
You dont even pay
But, we get another show and we came to play
Hands up now, get em up now (x3)
Get em up (x4)
Hands up now, get em up now (x3)
Get em up (x4)
Thats love

[Verse 3: Beleaf]
You know we brought the vibes to the function
The blackest of berries you know I had to punch in
Before we even hit the stage
I got people coming my way
To ask me questions about Johnny
They say I heard that hes your little brother
I say what
They say his sister is your baby mother
I say nah
Thats my wife
And Ill never love another
Dont tell John I said that when she...
Im joking
Ok now John is a beast yo
Who you think he get it from
John smoke
I dont know
Who you think he hid it from
Who you think about the least amount
Beleaf done bout had enough of talking bout John
I aint trying to pout
They say Johnny this Johnny that
Johnny sing Johnny rap
Johnny laws not around
Can you forge his autograph
s**er I rap too
Im proud of him
Thats true
But I aint trying to listen to you
Im looking at you like

(Chorus: John Givez)
Why oh why do they do me this way
Tell me you want to go then tell me to stay
This aint about money no
You dont even pay
But, we get another show and we came to play
Hands up now, get em up now (x3)
Get em up (x4)
Hands up now, get em up now (x3)
Get em up (x4)
Thats love

[Outro: John Givez]
Do you want to be from the business
Talking bout thats your business
Do you want to be with the business
Stay the hell out of our business
Do you want to be with the business
Talking bout thats your business
Do you want to be in the business
Stay the hell out of our business
