Chords: Principal (acoustic and electric guitars)
tone: G
           Am
Ayy, in my apartment a long time ago
   C
I knew a bad bitch, but she was kinda slow
      Em
Still gave it up when it's a few of us
        G
She let me finger-fxxx her on the school bus
           Am
We used to cut school with her and run train
    C
She wanted to hang with us, we wanted one thang
     Em
Just penetratin' that throat, dawg
     G
She choked on it like smoke, dawg
    Am
But whenever I fxxed up my re-up
     C
In a dice game I go see her
       Em
She'll give me enough to buy a quarter ounce
          G
And then blow a blunt of that reefer
     Am
She used to buy a n new sneakers
C
Pay the bill on my beeper
        Em
Just so she can page to put a "69"
      G
And I know it time to go freak her
     Am
Then one day I just asked her
C
"Why you always give your axx up?
        Em
I mean, dxxn, these hxxs get paid
                  G
All you do is get laid—this shit don't add up."
           Am
She said, "Tip, all I wanna do is feel love
C
Even if I know it ain't real love
Em
Even if I know a n only finna hit it
         G
And then never call back, I still fxxx."
            Am
And that's fxxxed up, but she so trill
        C
I need somethin', she go steal
         Em
When the trap hot and police ride
        G
Nxxxx, guess where we go chill?
      Am
For 'bout four years she held dope
       C
And my four pounds 'til it go down
            Em
I remember shawty, she stayed down
         G
I won't say her name ‘cause she married now

[Chorus]
          Am
When the lights go out
C
And I'm in my bed
  Em                       G             Am
I think of all the madness in my head
 C    Em                 G
(Oh~)  All of the things that I did back then
  Am     C
(Oh~)    When I'm in my bed
  Em                 G            Am
I think of all the memories I've had
 C      Em                G
(Oh~)   All of the things that I did back then

[Verse 2]
          Am
She would always turn heads when she'd fall through
          C
She would always make moves how a boss do
         Em
And she never gave any nxxxx time of day
            G
But she the chick all the nxxxxx tried to talk to
            Am
But when it came to me, she had a thing for me
         C
When we kicked it she roll up the weed for me
         Em
And we'd both cut class post up in the cut steady
         G
Watchin' just to see if the police comin'
        Am
We got close over time, her and I
       C
Right around the time that I first got signed
         Em
Come to think about it I was 'bout 17
         G
I ain't even have a license, couldn't even drive
            Am
I was goin' back and forth with each flight
             C
Another show after show, each night
            Em
She became so suspicious of these other bxxxx
          G
She'd go through my phone and we'd fight
           Am
Talk about torn between the two
              C
Wasn't really much more that we could do
                   Em
Wasn't really much space for us
                    G
But she stayed down with every tour she seen me do
                Am
But I guess one night I had a few
          C
Huh, one night I had a few
                  Em
Yeah, this little chick that caught my eye
              G
I told her: "Hurry up, meet me at the room!"
          Am
And no, I didn't have a contraceptive
        C
What my common sense neglected
        Em
And two months later, next thing I know
        G
I got a text that said "I'm pregnant"
            Am
And you can almost bet she kept it
           C
And that's the reason why you left me
          Em
On top of all that, it wasn't even mine
           G
I went and got paternity tested—dxxx!

[Chorus]
          Am
When the lights go out
C
And I'm in my bed
  Em                       G             Am
I think of all the madness in my head
 C    Em                 G
(Oh~)  All of the things that I did back then
  Am     C
(Oh~)    When I'm in my bed
  Em                 G            Am
I think of all the memories I've had
 C      Em                G
(Oh~)   All of the things that I did back then

[Verse 3]
      Am
Wait, hol' up, is that you?
          C
With them big ol' thighs after school?
    Em
Jay 305 had gave me high five
       G
When I said I’m in hot pursuit
     Am
You said I won’t ride until Kendrick drive
      C
A new Monte Carlo that cruise
    Em
And that shot my pride, I tried to improv
       G
But no freestyle I never do
    Am
You lookin' for the nxxxx with the tallest 'fetti
    C
You overlookin' every nxxxx that ain’t quite ready
   Em
To make it rain on you like I'm about to break a levee
         G
Hol' up, that pxxxy petty
           Am
Yeah, your nails did, your hair did
     C
Your cell phone is selfish
   Em
It only got numbers that come with a Hummer
    G
Her new prima donna I smelt it
      Am
Tried to make you mine, ho!
      C
Tried to make some time, ho!
    Em
But I ain’t got the time or the patience
    G
To stop and wait in line, ho!
    Am
Her dreams holds Versace
    C
She fall for Armani
  Em                            G
Only deal with rich nxxxxx—fxxx you and Mick Romney!
     Am
I’m grown now, I’m on my own now
    C
I’m po-o-o-oppin'
       Em
Change my phone now when I get home now
      G
I got o-o-o-options
     Am
Fast forward, wait, is that you?
          C
With them big ol' thighs after school?
         Em
And your three kids and three baby daddies
         G
Same car note that’s overdue? I know

[Chorus]
          Am
When the lights go out
C
And I'm in my bed
  Em                       G             Am
I think of all the madness in my head
 C    Em                 G
(Oh~)  All of the things that I did back then
  Am     C
(Oh~)    When I'm in my bed
  Em                 G            Am
I think of all the memories I've had
 C      Em                G
(Oh~)   All of the things that I did back then
