Lupe Fiasco - Coming Up Lyrics

This one goes out to the baby girls
In a rush growing up in this crazy world
Yeah your brother on the road and he never home
I know you feeling kinda sad now that daddy gone
You can't let it get you down, gotta carry on
We only lose things because it make us strong
You always had my love, and now you got a song
From the biggest biggest fan that you've ever known
I know you won't be little girls, not for very long
And you ain't gotta have a man if you don't ever want
'Cause I'm gonna make sure you got two of everything
That you ever want, every time, like your very own
Not to make you hard to respect
Just really really really really hard to impress
It's a whole wide world for you to go and get your hands on
Until then, just come and get your dance on now

I see you coming up
I'mma give you the lowdown
You will never gotta worry about nothing
Just as long as I'm around

This for everybody feeling good
You know who you are, or you misunderstood
Never had money, or you living good
If you from the burbs, if you in the hood
Recognize where we come from
In my day, mane, I did a little something some-
They like "How come you don't rap that?"
'Cause that's a backtrack and I ain't tryna back back
I'm only moving forward homie that's that
Direction, a lot of shoulders lack that
I'm just trying give it to 'em like sat-nav
Now I know I'm gonna make out like a fat rat
That's cool as long as they don't trap crack
Graduate from school, and still let his pants sag
Never catch a case, know how to let his cash stack
Welcome to the (map go anyway tap that back?)

I see you coming up
I'mma give you the lowdown, down, down (alright, alright)
You ain't never gotta worry about nothing (you ain't gotta worry)
Just as long as I'm around, (as long as I'm here) round, round, round

And if the floor falls out
I'mma be there to carry you
And if you want that star
I'll go get it out the sky for you
If you gotta shed a tear
I'mma dry your eyes
Just to let you know it'll be alright

I know it's like a whole lot going on
Things going right, things going wrong
Maybe baby, I've been waiting for you so long
Know that in this world you're never really on your own
God got a number get him on the phone
He'll never put you places where you don't belong
Put you through the pain, to put you on the throne
And I know that from the bottom of my corazon
And if they looking at you sideways
You just wave right back, tell 'em hi hater
Mad you ain't hanging with 'em in the driveway
Nah we going to keep it moving to the highway
(Strong's putting on?) week's all over like Friday, chilling
Shout out to King David for bringing in philly
And I'mma put the independent women in the building, let's go

I see you coming up (I see you coming up)
I'mma give you the lowdown (down), down (down), down (all the way down)
You ain't never gotta worry about nothing
Just as long as I'm around (I'm around), round, (yeah) round (yeah)

I see you coming up (I see you coming up, I see you coming up)
I'mma give you the lowdown (down), down (down), down (all the way down)
You ain't never gotta worry about nothing (don't worry about a thing)
Just as long as I'm around (I'm around), round, (yeah) round (yeah) round

  3. Florica Uno

    August 2019???

  4. Vincent Chen

    2019 ? anyone ?

  5. Shade753

    Sense this song is about the afterlife
    FUN FACT: Jeremiah 3:14-19 proves fornication in the afterlife. it says the saints will reproduce in the millennium and we wont have the law that includes the marriage laws cuz the whole chapter was about marriage. so this is fornication

    and before you say it
    1) it's only talking to the saints the unsaved are not mentioned.
    2) our glorified bodies are described as eating food and wearing cloths implying genitalia. we're not spirits just spiritual. Revelation 7:13-17
    3) cherubim are said to cover themselves implying genitalia and we know they don't marry so they have to fornicate Ezekiel 1:11

    with a change in priesthood must also come with necessity a change in the law.

  38. Sho Omar

    Dude, your lyrical content isn't even the same class as lupe's.
    Lupe talks about good and being real, you seem to follow the general genre of girls, money and drugs.

    these lyrics need some serious work... lmao

  81. Jonathan Boukarim

    yo the lyrics has an error, it isn't "i know you want me little girls",
    it's supposed to be: "i know you won't be little girls" lol

  82. GRITO725

    it could be similar to I Aint Mad at Cha but i think it got a lot of elements from Keep ya Head Up

  83. Sergio Vazquez

    You are a complete idiot

  84. Pearlshire19

    Yeah it's very similar to "I Ain't Mad at Cha". It's just slightly more upbeat


    more like.. stop typing cuz I can't hear them anyway fuck them haters I don't care about them I stay because of the music Lupe forreals ~

  86. The Shah

    This deserves more views. A lot more views.

  87. Ben Vallee

    lol 40 people seem to disagree with you, I'm only talkin about lupe's verses, it could have easily come from pac, it's got the same vibe, the beat has nothing to do with it

  88. slight95

    are you fucking high?!?!?!?! you are retarded. Pac's songs sound absolutely NOTHING like this. you are very dumb.

  89. Martian Lynch

    His little sister, Iesha... and all his teen female fans.

  90. r2richburg

    I love how he says pooh bear

  91. Jane Doe


  92. SOJOA

    @TouchdownMachine85 Im getting more Talib out of this than Tupac but I getcha.

  93. GRITO725

    is he talking about his daughter or something?

  94. iseeredppl

    in verse 2 ; is it back back or back that or back pack? its killing me !!!!!
