Uptown Roamers - Wale

4... 3...

Uptown roamers, and south side riders

Up up up uptown up up uptown up up uptown [x4]

[Wale:]

(Yea! We got a lot of star power in the building tonight.

Rock, Mikey what up? Trey what up? Yea! Here we go!

Forest Creek what up, Glenarden what up, Cap Heights what up,

Barry Farms what up, Lincoln Heights what up, Michigan what up,

Montana we ain't playin with em! Aww!)

[Verse 1:]

District has arrived us, (ah) time to shine

Yea, I am the nail forever holdin em down

Down in the slums to the burbs, where they migrate

Who the one they talkin bout? That's what I thought, WALE!

A long way from a grammy, I'm a get it

I promise the moment it's with me I'll leave it in the District

Yea, and I'm just doin what I gotta do, flyer than the rest of em

I still got my Nike boots

Let me enlighten you, I am the brightest of the youth

The booth can't do it I provide to it

It's by youth with the mind of a G

I never cook coke, no sir that ain't me (nah)

But I'm so DC, and Maryland, Virginia

Dem other bammas p_ssy like placenta

The center of the East coast my emblem reads

4-3... yea, remember that please

Uptown roamers, and south side riders

Up up up up uptown up up up town up up up town [x2]

(Wale: yea yea yea yea, ay ay ay, Yea.

Landova what up, 1-2-4 what up, 1st Quarter what up,

KentLand what up, Texas Ave what up, Largo what up,

Trinidad gettin cash fa sho, yea)

[Verse 2]

It's DC, brought to you by me

The only thing higher than the crime rate is the fiends

Semen get leaked to the women of the future

The ladies baby boomin before they high school juniors

Yea, and these n*ggas don't be steppin up

Baby mothers quittin school, n*gga now it's up to her

Believe ya'll, I ain't tryna Stephen King ya'll

But most stay high with they eyes like the Singapores

I'm singin poems for supporters of my songs

And all them out-of-towners

Just to show you how we goin

The poor to the ballers, Ardwick Ardmore

The Forest Creek stars, even ya'll out in Rockville

The home of Marvin Gaye, that's all I gotta say

Iverson was cool, but I supported Victor Page

It's the DC thang, in case you ain't notice

Landova, Saratoga, and I'm Uptown...

Uptown roamers, and south side riders

Up up up up uptown up up up town up up up town [x4]

[Verse 3]

Yes, it's Wale

Currently out in Maryland

I should be in the carry-out

Truthfully I am ever fresh

I'm everesant, nobody do it better

They all are pretenders, I am the 7th letter

(WALE! WALE!)

Yea, and that's my name, they ain't forgot it

The 9th letter's forgotten, you will never be acknowledged

[Verse 4:]

I get it poppin like Pacman, ask Polo

Ask G, he'll tell you that I'm into Go-Go

Ask Mikey, he'll tell you that the hoes like me

My Prada lows, for the most part it's only Nike

Some spite me, but they try to be a lot alike me

You goin have to sell some more records, n*ggas, stop tryin'

Uptown roamers, and south side riders

Up up up up uptown up up up town up up up town [x4]

[In Background:] (don't, don't,

don't, don't hate him, don't,

don't, don't, don't, don't, don't, don't hate him, don't)

[Background:] (ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay) [repeat until end]

Uptown roamers, and south side riders

Up up up up uptown up up up town up up up town

[repeat until end of song]
