Redbone - Childish Gambino

Redbone

"Awaken, My Love!"
funk soul Psychedelic Soul sexy Neo-Soul


“Redbone” is about paranoia and infidelity in a relationship. The track was first revealed at Gambino’s Pharos concert experience, but officially premiered on BBC Radio 1 as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record. The DJ described it as “oozing with soul.” The instrumentation, led by a plodding slap bass line, leaves a ton of open space for the swaggering, syncopated percussion and twinkling glockenspiel that evoke the track’s distinct throwback feel.

Redbone - Childish Gambino

[Verse 1]
Daylight, I wake up feeling like you won't play right
I used to know but now, that shit don't feel right
It made me put away my pride
So long, you made a nigga wait for some, so long
You make it hoverboard like that, but no wrong
I'm wishing I could make this mine, oh

[Pre-Chorus]
If you want it, yeah
You can have it, oh, oh, oh
If you need it, oooh
We can make it, oh
If you want it
You can have it

[Chorus]
But stay woke
Niggas creepin'
They gon' find you
Gon' catch you sleepin' (Oooh)
Now stay woke, niggas creepin'
Now don't you close your eyes

[Verse 2]
Too late
You wanna make it right, but now it's too late
My peanut butter chocolate cake with Kool-Aid
I'm trying not to waste my time

[Pre-Chorus]
If you want it, oh
You can have it, you can have it
If you need it
You better believe in something
We can make it
If you want it
You can have it, aaaaah!

[Chorus]
But stay woke
Niggas creepin'
They gon' find you
Gon' catch you sleepin'
Put your hands up on me
Now stay woke
Niggas creepin'
Now don't you close your eyes
But stay woke, niggas creepin'
They gon' find you
Gon' catch you sleepin' (Oooh)
Now stay woke
Niggas creepin'
Now don't you close your eyes

[Outro]
Baby get so scandalous, oh
How'd it get so scandalous?
Oh, oh—baby you—
How'd it get...
How'd it get so scandalous?
Ooh we get so scandalous
But stay woke
