Throwback

 

Y’all remember back in the day, how we used to do? Yeah

They call us old school, we gon' be throwback's instead though

Yo y’all wanna go back with me, let's go!

(We're just throwbacks from another time) ahh yeah, alright now

(Cause we're throwbacks) whoo (in our minds)

 

Verse

I remember, back in the day

Before I ever hit the stage I had to learn how to play

So on my drums, rat tat tat boom

They said their ears would hurt when they heard the noise coming from my room

But mom would say, "J.K. you're gonna be great

You gotta make your mark on the music world someday"

So I went at it real hard and I learned to keep my time

I'm so glad cause now it's carried me so far past my prime

 

Chorus

They say I'm a throwback, ah yeah

(We're just throwbacks) a throwback (from another time)

From another time, yeah (cause we're throwbacks) throwback (in our minds)

In my mind, yeah eah eah yeah (we're just throwbacks) throwback (from another time)

From another time, yeah (cause we're throwbacks) throwback (in our minds)

 

Verse

Now do you remember back in the day

We were on our grind all week, when Friday came it was time to play

So at the club, but sometimes just a room

They'd dim the lights, we'd dance the night away, and you know how we'd do 

The kids would say ("What dances can I do?

Lemme see, I can do the freak, the smurf, the spank the wop) Mmm (the worm, the hustle)

And we could two-step too

My boys complained "J.K. we're gonna be late (C'mon J.K., I'm tryin' ta get up in there. Wassup?)

Then we'd chill outside of the club for a while

So we'd be late, but be in style, we were throwbacks yeah

 

Chorus

Aw yeah (We're just throwbacks) just throwbacks (from another time)

From another time, yeah, yeah (‘cause we're throwbacks) just throwbacks (in our minds)

In- our -minds, yeah eah eah yeah (We're just throwbacks) just throwbacks (from another time)

‘Nother time, yeah yeah yeah (cause we're throwbacks) throwbacks (in our minds)

 

Change

We grew up together as a people, we didn't really have too much

But you wouldn't even know that

When I look around at the luxury y’all have

Good character's still hard to grow

Without there's things you won't know

That is why you can't dismiss a throwback, ahh yeah

 

Chorus

(We're just throwbacks) throwbacks (from another time) from another time, yeah

(‘Cause we're throwbacks) just throwbacks (in our minds) in-our-minds, yeah eah eah yeah

(We're just throwbacks) just throwbacks (from another time)

Listen, we'd chill outside of the club for a while

So we'd be late but be in style

‘Cause we're throwbacks (‘cause we're throwbacks in our minds)

In our minds, yeah eah eah yeah

(We're just throwbacks) we're just throwbacks (from another time)
