Track Name: Princess Black Tide
Verse 1
I saw water lappin' and a mermaid came to shore/ don't remember the beach but it was a saint or a fort/ she loved to swim but said that sailing was more/ her flavor this sort/ of small talk made a raport/ she ain’t never had a chance to go where we been/ her daddy was the king of the sea and she lived to please em'/ she had some brothers and their wifey's gave her nieces/ she'd seen the candy rappers but she asked “what up with reeces?”/ my reply “chocolate peanut butter and no wrong way to eat it”/ she said “that sounds good would you please stop teasing?”/ I laughed “feet's (yes feet's) are for walking and fins are for swimming”/ she replied “if you kiss me then these fins will be finished”/ she was sincere, I said “Idig it” / on my prince shit believing fairy tales a grown man/ a kiss gave her legs she walked and so we hold hands / I had a lot of loves but barely felt this type of romance/

Chorus 2x
So lemme' tell you bout' misses, misses /
Princess/ Blacktides / Knew you in a past life/
Looks mean thank God she act nice/
Looks mean thank God she act nice

Verse 2
She wanted to learn all that I could teach her/ she had heard of music but had never seen a speaker/ she knew about Saturday nights but not the fever/ knew that I had to feed her and then we'd go dancing/ went to EYE-HOP and even that was romantic/ casual conversations and a couple “oh damn-its” / I broke down pancakes syrup and grits/ coffee, cream, sugar , and stirring it in/ she smiled – she liked to sip-it/
“word” I was nervous as hell for really really/ “word” I tried to play it cool and keep it chilly/ “word” I asked the waitress if she'd bring the bill please/ I settled up the bill and then we slid stage left/ she burped and you could tell that she just ate egg's/ and that was straight to me/ see I wasn't hating / cuz I knew when I burped that you could smell I ate bacon/

Chorus 2x
So lemme' tell you bout' misses, misses /
Princess/ Blacktides / Knew you in a past life/
Looks mean thank God she act nice/
Looks mean thank God she act nice

Verse 3
I had to ditch the bacon now my breath was pepperminted/ underwater dancing has a different defintion / Imma hit her with the Oxford and a couple extra kisses/ went from her royal purples to an out fit that was fitted/ it was Christmas in July and her lips was on my wish list/ and she wrapped em' in a beautiful face cause she was pertty/ Lord! Nah, she ain't have mercy/ got men breaking they necks and all needing gurneys/ eyes hit the frame it was like a fiend returninig/ dancefloor my hands in the small of her back/ she went from amateur to pro and that was all in a flash/ that night I danced harder than I dance in my life/ far as I knew I had my hands on a wife/ but how the constellations got to fool my strarry eyes/ she said she had to use the bathroom but left eth bar behaind/ that night the tide left a mark on my mind/

Chorus
So lemme' tell you bout' misses, misses /
Princess/ Blacktides / Knew you in a past life/
Looks mean thank God she act nice/
Looks mean thank God she acted nice/
