Lyrics of Chains On You

  • English
I got it, you wanna take me to the party, Cause you’re naughty, Well, let me tell you one kind of story. Yeah I start it, I make it, I ride it, I work it Don’t like it, I’m gonna say no. I ain’t no lying, I’m trying, I’m flying, no buying And I know I’m gonna make it to the top. Keeping my diamonds on you, I’m keeping my diamonds on you, Keeping my diamonds on you, I got angels by my side And this is what I say to you. Diamonds shinin' on me, My diamonds shinin’ on me, Diamonds shinin' on me, You said I don’t really care Can’t you see I’m right here. Boy, don’t deny my lips on fire, They’re screaming boy, Let me breathe, you’re all I need, And I say boy Call my name, we’re burning flame I want you boy I am yours, only yours and of course Hurt me. Chains on chains on you, Imma put them boy Chains on chains on you. Chains on chains on you, Imma put them boy Chains on chains on you, I was staring at you while sitting next to you, I think I got a juice, I started thinking how my name would sound to you. So you were walking towards me and I knew I should believe, I would be the one that’ll really make you feel like a boss. I start it, I make it, I ride it, I work it, Don’t like it, I’m gonna say no. I ain’t no lying, I’m trying, I’m flying, no buying And I know I’m gonna make it to the top. Keeping my diamonds on you, I’m keeping my diamonds on you, Keeping my diamonds on you, I got angels by my side This is what I say to you. Diamonds shinin' on me, My diamonds shinin' on me. Diamonds shinin' on me You said I don’t really care Can’t you see I’m right here. Boy, don’t deny my lips on fire They’re screaming boy, Let me breathe, you’re all I need, And I say boy, Call my name, we’re burning flame I want you boy, I'm yours, only yours and of course, Hurt me. Hurt me. I am yours, only yours and of course, Hurt me. Chains on chains on you Imma put them boy Chains on chains on you. Chains on chains on you Imma put them boy Chains on chains on you. Diamonds shinin' on me, My diamonds shinin' on me. Diamonds shinin' on me, You said I don’t really care Can’t you see I’m right here.
