Kendrick LamarShe Needs Me (ft. Javonte)

One time, reporting live, Compton, California

[Verse 1: Kendrick Lamar]
She go to work, she go to school, her body smooth, no tattoos
Type of girl that’ll make your mother feel comfortable
My pops love her too, she’s compatible, she’s independent
She handle her business, she believe in God and no other religions
She's never in competition, when it comes to her friends, she's dependable
She set her own trends, a confidant, a mediator, so sweet, every flavor
Just a conversation with her doing you a favor, look at her hips, I want to be
her pager
Conservative, affirmative, actually she relaxing in sweats and bobby pins
The beauty of her, a blind man can see, a true queen and she needs me
She needs me, she needs me, she needs me, she needs me
The beauty of her, swear to God, a blind man can see, a true queen and she
needs me

[Hook: Javonte]
That girl is smoking, can't believe that I'm her focus
It ain’t hard to see she got me open, and together we are rollercoasting on

[Verse 2: Kendrick Lamar]
Five years later, an accountant major, work at a firm
Abundance of paper, she got a career, she look in the rear
You were there behind her Mercedes that she could steer
Call her boss, executive meetings, consecutive trips, vacational weekends
Dior reeking through her Prada dress, probably the only product of a pure
success
Got a promotion, now she own the building
Headed to the top like she own the building, real estate, property
She order tender steak, only one mouth to feed, funding a youth center
Invested in some stock, double what she put in and bought a restaurant
Oh what a girl, how great life can be, even though she got the world, she
needs me
She needs me, she needs me, she needs me, she needs me
Oh what a girl, what a hell life can be, even though she got the world, she
needs me

[Hook]

[Verse 3: Kendrick Lamar]
We lose touch, we separated, years pass, I’m out dated
She’s dating one of Hollywood’s famous entertainers, Denzel good
Paparazzi spot ‘em out shopping, Tuesday morning brunch, Benihana's
Tabloids paint a picture of a perfect couple
Headline reads when a famous actor loves you, Emmy Awards, Academy too
On the red carpet, dress matching his suit, she holding his arm
She waves at her moms and wave at the world, got the world in her palms
Head in the clouds, star gazing, caught her on the stage, a proposal was
waiting
He bent down, got on one knee, she looked him in the eye and said she needs me
She needs me, she needs me, she needs me, she needs me
Even if we seem to separate, eventually it’ll come to pass, she’ll need me

[Hook]
