Consequence & Lupe Fiasco – Countdown Feat. Chris Turner Lyrics

 

(Verse 1 – Consequence)
The only dog from the kennel who made it up to Kimmel
And that’s a symbol some will say is symbolic
Of the sentiment that we should have a seminar in college
Cause the way we take a term and turn it into paper
You could turn it in and tell em that’s your term paper
Cause we been taking paper on our own terms
The kind of paper that’d make em say, It’s your turning
But those turns’ll take the hey to a hooray
And have you like Frank when his bird was in the fireplace
My mistake must’ve been punctuality
Cause f**king up some commas isn’t everyone’s reality
But f**k them other hitters, anyone I go to bat for
Is bout to have a Benz symbol on they dashboard
So watch who you pinch wit them crab claws
Cause safe flight won’t come to fix a glass jaw, it’s the Cons, fool

(Chorus 2X)
Yeah, I make you count
That’s why you hear me on the countdown
Cost so many bodies that it’s getting hard to count now
I just keep counting, aw, yeah, as we count it all
I just keep counting away

(Verse 2 – Lupe Fiasco)
Out the door of the limo to make it up to Leno
And at a tempo, some would say it’s Ben Wallace
The defensiveness of ni**a’s who ain’t never left the projects
Cause we can never trust, but we be having fun
But that’s what happens when you hatch without a trust fund
So you trust the fundamentals that’s your net worth
And only fund the trustworthy ni**a’s in your network
Keep your eyes on the prize, watch em dilate
And hope the prize stare back at you like a fire escape
My mistake must’ve been my reality
Cause when you spitting facts and turn saliva into salaries
Don’t f**k wit other spitters, but the ones that go to bat for us
Like the Benz got a bat symbol on the dashboard
Backballing and the ones that turn to Shaq 4
Better sin safe like to fix the backboard, it’s Lu, ni**a

(Repeat Chorus 2X)

(Bridge – Chris Turner)
I just keep counting cause I know we’re number one
I just keep counting cause I know we’re number one
And I know when the summer comes
She gon me, you’re the one

I just keep counting cause I know we’re number one
I just keep counting cause I know we’re number one
And I know when the summer’s done
She gon me, you’re the one
So I just keep counting as I count it all
So I just keep counting as w count it all

(Repeat Chorus 2X)
