M.I.A. - Y.A.L.A Lyrics




[Intro:]
Y.A.L.A
Y.A.L.A

[Hook: x2]
Go low, go slow
Run like a polo
Up and down that pole
Like you're goin up a yo-yo

[Interlude:]
Yea, yea, Y.O.L.O
Yea, yea, Y.O.L.O
Dance go off when I enter the building

[Bridge: x4]
Y.A.L.A

[Verse 1:]
I drink some cointreau
Keep it in my poncho
Light up like Castro
Blow up and get go
Pro when I set, go
Grow like an afro
Play like Ronaldo
Hard like I'm Death Row
Weight in kilo
Light as a pillow
Don't tie my tip-toe
Like I tae-box though

[Pre-Hook:]
Come come come
When we come with some some
Yeah a glass of rum
Yea I got me some pom pom
For fun fun fun
Let's get 'em undone
With a hit on the bong
It's been so long since we hung

[Hook x2]

[Bridge x2]

[Verse 2:]
Yeah!
Empty wowo
And I am understood
I get the lo-lo
Searching for me unfold
Bankin' offshore
Take a trip to Singapore
I need to earn like
I'm Julianne Moore
For the oracle
Don't wanna igno
That's why I say shit
So they can explore
My baby, I am more
My mommy I adore
I tried to stay poor
Can't take it anymore

[Pre-Hook]

[Hook]

[Interlude]

[Bridge x3]

[Verse 3:]
Y.A.L.A. Y.A.L.A
I'm flying solo (Y.A.L.A.)
You can take a photo
I'm a keep it wowo (Y.A.L.A.)

[Bridge x2]

[Pre-Hook]

[Outro:]
Y.O.L.O.?
I don't even know anymore
What that even mean though
If you only live once why we keep doing the same shit?
Back home where I come from we keep being born again and again and then again and again
That's why they invented Karma

    Figure out what animal was the first cleanthe a pig and you would know that I only watched 2 people do a nose to butt pull.

  85. Tarkeema Lewis

    T. I. M. A.

  86. Mary Rucker

    Jennifer you as well Mary Elizabeth your mother is listed at the right age is why my children are in the weak soccer fields just know I hope Mr Jenkins has your age listed as younger than your younger mother your mother is younger than you is whyvyour a cage dimb ass

  87. Mary Rucker

    You being listed one day older has helped your younger sister whom is legally your mother win the case! I don't want appolgizes I just want you and your DSS to know why your age needed to be right or your career and asset's come here to your birth mother Amanda Fay Turner

  88. Mary Rucker

    You are listed one day older than your mother is why it's all over not because of whom is your mother it's because of your age Amanda Rucker and Manny baby. Just know why you nor your father have a roof Manny and Ben because your amanda father know why I won the number 1 count down as well. Sorry Manny your mother had rights when your younger sister is your mother is why your face will always be worse off than what you and your dad did to your mom. Sorry all I ask f on day one is Amanda either get listed at the right age or it's all over with claiming you and her because we are 27 years later and Amanda still doesn't know her younger sister is her mother so let Brandon standfield know why my kneck tahkes the lead every day! Sorry her she has all you and her money taken away from you guys in your account! Amanda should have never been caught with hrandob standfield taking your child's mothers license because her little sister is her birth mother and it's your wife's age that has your family fucked deep in debt.

  89. Mary Rucker

    That's my child not my sibling is why her face is fucked up the way she did mine with her dad so just thank me for infestation of your family money because your younger sister is your mother miss amanda fake money is all you and your dad have pay back your government funds if it's true your younger sister is your mother! Know why you will not have a leg to stand on by the end Shan your mother will never except you sorry you and your mother can thank what you did to your birthe just know why you and your dad have no choices but to go back where you and your dad came from. Your younger sister is your mother 1989 sorry you should have been listed as the right age from day 1 dumb dead fuck
