The Art of Translation
by Grits



 

Tennessee Boys, GIRLS
Dirty south boys, GIRLS
Tennessee boys, GIRLS
Dirty south boys

T-E (Tennessee)
Double N-E (Tennessee)
Double S
Now double E
Now spell that out, it's Tennessee
No matter where I be
Everybody say it loud for me
Travel from state to state
It's gonna be my home place

Bonafideís my name
To change the game is my aim
Gone break the chain and steak my claim
While putting Nashville all on the brain
With a twist of the mid south twang
And a little bitta bounce to bang
Gone feed the soul and crowd the floors
And take control and break the mold
Kick the doors and spit the flows
We in the pros what you ainít know
Cause round here they caddy roll
With gold grills and twenty wheels
On Jefferson at Mary Ribs
Bounce to this from state to fisk
We keep it hot for every spot
Been round the world done seen a lot
Got all my homies mean a lot
For all the boys out on the block
Got love for yaíll for real dog
You the reason Iím here at all
And took the call to break the fall
And show the way from where I stay
In Tennessee boy the dirty south boy

65 south ridin dirty window down open mouth
Spirit stirred off the sermon I just heard that's my word
Dipped and doused
Awakened quickly mold me shape me but first strip me
Hold me take me to extremes in my reside
Though it seems I'm so beside
Myself in this state I'm placed in open the box my fate
Encased in break the seal and let me out
In Tennessee thats what I'm talkin bout
Now I'm here not much can stop me
You a supporter if you got this copy
Now show dem pearlies boys and girlies
Buff and burlies straight and curlies
No surprises, where we at got all shapes and sizes
Put on the brakes remove all disguises erupt like geysers
Sound off one time (wooh)
Whether sadistic legalistic outcast, or misfit fortune teller mystic
Ones who love God revere him fear him
These and more found in my district
