St. Lunatics - Gimme What You Got Lyrics

I'm on my way to my show, uh, shirt Polo
Gortex figaro, jeans Hilfiger though
Starched up, hit the Amaco
Bought a Philly, sparked up
Lunatics'll blow the park up
Ooh this herb, got me geekin like a nerd
F what you heard, federal roll like a bird
You were, actin funny when you first saw me
Now, I'm makin jams have you bein like "go Lee"
Hell nah trick, I'm picky now
I'm spiffy now, smoke sticky now
Hit the door at the club yellin "grip and love"
Met me with a dub (was it fire playa?), what
Straight to the bar, got a Henny and Coke
Ain't been in five minutes, rats sendin me notes
Could it be the way I get down, the way I throw down
I don't know, but it's one thing I know for sure

[Murphy Lee]
With the scenery of St. Louie, we can't be touched
M-I-S, show your rifle, we just too much
We crossed the bridge, you tripped, uh oh, this ain't alarm
Once hear sounds, get down, hope you Lucky like Charms
Lunatics will explode, OK, call me the Rigga
Representer, St. Louis figures, chronic hitters
So what's up? Let me introduce my click and I
Lunatics, I'm little T rollin ninety miles an hour

And you say St. Louis City, c'mon, uh
(Gimme what you got, gimme what you got)
And you say St. Louis City
(Gimme what you got, gimme what you got)

You wild boy, you need to change your whole style boy
Your team will never be the same like Jimmy Johnson's Cowboys
What you gonna try for? You guilty of bein wack
If ??? Louis was your cousin I wouldn't put you on my track
Get some lyrical jack, you know, Neal like Shaq
Now where we at, so when you try that, Lunatics got my back
It's a fact, you see a blunt you supposed to match
It's a fact, Lunatics gon' put St. Lou on the map
I put St. Lou on my cap, and it's obvious see
Kyjaun's true when he rap, is you mad at that?
Perhaps you mad, 'cause all the rats that I flash
Be havin some matches, spark it, put yourself in trap
Got 'cha

[City Spud]
Want some, get some
'Cause everybody on my team could give some
You know my squad, rip ya girl if ya thorough son
From the clit, what, with the gun son
Work it down, freak it any way you want son, uh
Is he really real with the skill son, uh
Did he make a mil with the skill son, uh
Gotta make 'em dance in this here son, yeah


In my spare time unwind and grind fools like coffee
Softly is how I speak to them punks who come actin salty
Then Ali, I let this thing go (booyaah!), back on up off me
I heard you was on my tail now you yellin "nelly, you lost 'em"
Fool, my click is off the hook like O.J.
Fool, there ain't no way, that we could ever be deep in four-play
Run and ask your lady
Smokin hay-hay-haaay
I bust a rhyme, and I line all them draws, my sign for all a y'all
Be that F on the top of skyscrapers, my lyrics rape ya
Tape your mouth like a hostage, you be talkin garbage
Makin my stomach nauseous with that shhh that, ah
Tryna' compare your click to mine, you need to hide and catch up
??? Duff know I'm a liar, makin you fools transpire
To sweatshirts like Champion attire, so why you try-ah
Lunatic for hirrrrrrre (hahahahaha)

[(Hook) 2x]

  58. KHooksMixer

    The old Saints skating rink appears in this video, the 2nd most popular skating rink in STL after Skate King. They sadly just tore the building down last year and the rink had been closed for almost 8-9 years unfortunately. Good times at the Saints. I believe Nelly was scheduled to perform a small show there before it closed. 


    So, they scheduled him and then it closed down before his show?

    ralph longo

    This song was cut at the rink, they had a small studio in there. So it would definitely make the video.

  59. Khadiza Sano

    @Cornrow Wallace you petty for calling him broke. But its actually true, Nelly started from nothing but now he's worth a lot. Even has his own reality show on BET.

  60. Jade Williams

    my dad does that dance love Nelly and them

  61. M&N Distribution

    Never knew nelly went back this far

  62. TopFlightSecurity415

    one of the best verses ever spit by nelly

    Jonathan Soko

    This was a bad boy styled song, they were a dime a dozen. Its hard to sell when everyone else did the same thing @Wolfpack8706


    @Jonathan SokoWhat are you talking about??????????This was a Midwest style of rapping.

    Jonathan Soko

    The beat. @Wolfpack8706


    @Jonathan SokoI doubt it.

  63. amparcade

    I used to love this song BUT I didn't know the St. Lunatics sung it! This IS their best song by far.

  64. Rashawn Antoinio

    Khadiza Sano

  75. MsMcmoe

    Nelly Baby!

  76. JusInBello

    I LOVE the video!!! They were still kids working their asses off to make it big, still working at Radio Shack, McDondald's, LeRoy's barbershop. In a way, this video is better than the expensive or flashy ones - imagine how geeked they must have been when this song blew up St Louis, and for the first time they were getting a little taste of fame, and they were finally on their way!

  77. rome12333

  95. MsMcmoe

    Wow, how far they have come! Nelly does a lot of philanthropic things now to give back to the Lou, we're proud of that. He'll be performing soon and I can't wait to see him for the 1st time!
