Macklemore - Good For You Lyrics




[Hook x2:]
Now you know what's good for you
Got that, not gonna warn you
We got that to make it right right right
You know all my women, I adore you
Bodies wanna absorb too
The energy, melody life life life

[Verse 1:]
See I don't know why I gotta go and creep around
You've seen me and my penis
Not used to having to sleep without somebody
And I've been chugging alcohol and I'm leaving now
And I don't wanna go home alone tonight
I was freaking with some hunny named Lisa
She was squeezing alpha Puerto-Rican Diva
Weaving her hair with the cleavage out
Expedin' by the V
She's flashing the keys to go peep the house
And then my phone rings, it's my girl on the line
It's like, I don't know what the hell to do
It's like women like this are seldom and few
I'm fucked up in the club with a blunt and a butt
But my love will hang up if I tell her the truth
See, I can be a selfish dude especially when
I'm off a blunt and a brew but
But she's so sexy, now let me spend the night
It's like help, either way I'm screwed
Get it?
See if I lie, I got my conscience to deal with
But if I go wakin' up in the ride then I'm gonna get
To grind with a fine Puerto-Rican Brazilian
But is it really worth it? I don't know
I gotta ask myself that question
Booty's truly an option
But it's not gonna suit me like my girl Evan

[Hook x2:]
I don't wanna do it but I can't help it
I'm so selfish
Lady, what you want me to say?
Foolish
The lies and deception
I tried to confess it
Committed, but I still wanna play

[Bridge: Step Cousins]
I don't wanna do it but I can't help it
I'm so selfish
Lady, what you want me to say?
Foolish
The lies and deception
I tried to confess it
Committed, but I still wanna play

[Verse 2: Step Cousins]
If I gave into the fact that you hate me and take me back
I'm saving face by staying at the bar
And embracing this Jack
She wanna leave, I can tell by the way
She react to the mouth piece
No more dollar drinks so she
Followed me with the house keys
And I know what I'm doing is wrong
Hoping that you were the one
But out 'til like two in the morn
With nobody you wanna know
It's comforting to know you're home
When I'm out on the road
I know you're lonely though
Or maybe got some flow of your own
In the looking glass, you shake your ass
I sat back and I watched
Then I took your hand, and we both danced
While thinking of the thoughts
It might've been the circumstance that hurt
This man - I'm a circus act at most
Nobody's perfect girl, it's a perfect world
But we don't have to know
And I'm not trying to justify it
But I might try to simplify it
One touch and I'm mesmerized
So I mess around in disguise
Flesh to the eyes, test to the lies
Sex gets my vote unless...
You're destined to die with the one
Next to your side
Fo sho

[Bridge]

    StuckDucks

    @Joaquín Martin Sanz just got here now.

  3. Sheneice Robinson

    Like if I'm the only person who thinks he should totally have a song with Eminem!

  4. alex kaogerakis

    this beat is rad!

  5. OTR Fitness

    or G Eazy

  6. Emma Robert

    NO! are you sick or what? Eminem yuck!

  7. Emanuel Serban

  8. Ap0th3cary

    Wow and I have been listening to Thrift Shop this whole time!!!!! This guy is one of the best I have ever heard lyrically speaking.....I do love people from the Pacific Northwest though...

  9. girlswithtwirls

    I know you guys probably won't read this.. and that's completely fine. My best friend and I are aspiring Film students and it would mean the world to us if you could give us the chance and the opportunity to become Film makers, by watching our videos. Just the 30 seconds it takes you to click on our channel could allow us to do what we love. (We made a Macklemore- Can't Hold Us Music Video!) Thank you so much for taking the time to read this comment and believe in our dream:)

    Joaquín Martin Sanz

    copyrighted or something?

  10. isaiah

    Imma kill myself

  11. Lindsey M

    The only reason i know who they are is because of my macklemore pandora station, its literally perfect

  12. Nicholas Armour

    i just started listening to them and they are amazing

  13. ThePlloollP

    Poland raises ;)

  14. rjlj5

    immortal technique.

  15. Lindsey M

    i LOVE atmosphere

  16. Ellen Bauer

    Nice try, nice try...

  17. Leshoka Kimberleigh Mametja

    yes Macklemore, u are indeed good for me;) hehe

  18. Cody McBride

    Sol & Grieves

  20. Noah Olson

    Bambu - where you from

  21. Phenumb

    real fans circulate air! lol

  22. Gabriella Finelli

    People need to stop comparing him to other rappers and Thrift Shop. Just enjoy the things he makes.

  23. 민준홍

    #ThriftShopKidsTry2Hard haha

  24. Jethropeful

    This album came out in 2005

  25. ColagamerXD

    240p we meet again...

  26. Craig Parry

  27. 2ScopeGaming

    OMG. You are so cool for knowing this 2 years ago..

  28. con1993con

    Thrift shop challenge facebook it!

  29. Kris Jorgensen

    But he was, he rapped while high, but he couldnt creat while high.

  30. madeinjpn93

    no, you need to learn more...he was never a drug rapper. he did drugs, had substance abuse problems, but overcame those obstacles and always rapped against using drugs to seek fulfillment. Rohan is obviously talking about rappers who glorify money and drugs, which macklemore never did.

  31. j69d

    If there were no talking up until 0:39 it'll made a massive difference in vibes leading towards the lyrics of the song. Beat is sick

  32. PEHS MoNsTeR

    Better than All of YMCMB anyday

  33. Tom Chaix

    Please what is the name of the instrumental ?

  34. Chet Goldstein

    Sage Francis, Aesop Rock, Living Legends, Eyedea and Ability, Mos Def, Illogic, Bus Driver,

  35. Kris Jorgensen

    But he was a drug rapper, if you dont know that then you need to learn more. Not saying he's bad, he is my favorite rapper.

  36. retro

    Genuine, real rappers beat fake, money drug rappers anyday

  37. Phoenin

    E-Dubble is good too along with MF doom and all his alias' i dont know if you like that stuff tho

  39. Stare a hole through you
