lyrics

[Hook]
Nah nah nah, never tell them you're a rapper
I'm a DJ, I'm a musician
Nah nah nah, never tell them you're a rapper
I play in bands on the weekend

[Zilla Rocca]
I went to school and got a bachelor's
I can't believe I'm a rapper
Might go back and get my master's
And just pretend that I never was a rapper
Never tell them you're a rapper
My girl's mom doesn't think that I'm a rapper
My own mom didn't want to raise a rapper
My ex girls didn't want to date a rapper
That's the goddamn truth
Hate when people ask me "What kind of music do you do?"
I say "Hip Hop"
They say "Dude...no seriously, what kind of music do you do?"
Everyone loves rap, no one loves rapper
Unless they want to hear a freestyle at a party
I want to get drunk, I don't feel like rapping
Don't tell people I'm the rapper at the party

[Hook]
Nah nah nah, never tell them you're a rapper
I'm a DJ, I'm a musician
Nah nah nah, never tell them you're a rapper
I play in bands on the weekend

[PremRock]
Don't ever tell her you're a rapper
Unless you like being a bachelor
Well, I guess it was a phase
I'm onto brighter days, I swear girl that's a closed chapter
See I use the word "writer", that's commendable
And certain households put it on a pedestal
But I hope that it's the case, all a matter of taste
Imagine granddad respecting rap as a trade
But a rapper? That's the shit you never do
Thinking that you're clever but no one thinks that you're clever dude
No one gives a ---- about your Bandcamp
And your show even you get your hand stamped
You should say that you're a drummer
Like Ringo Starr and play festivals every summer
Cause when they find out you're a rapper
The next thing they're gonna ask
"Well since you rap, rap motherfucker, rap!"
Would you roll up on a dancer and ask her ass to tap?

[Hook]
Nah nah, never tell them you're a rapper
I tune pianos, I write songs
Nah nah, never tell them you're a rapper
I'm a disc jock, I spin rock
Nah nah, never tell them you're a rapper
I play dijimbe, nah nah
Nah nah, never tell them you're a rapper
I play keyboards, Casio's
