Jelly Roll – Goodnight Shirley Lyrics

[Intro]
Goodnight Shirley, goodnight, goodnight, I’m gone
Goodnight Shirley, so leave the lights back on when I come home

[Verse 1: Jelly Roll]
I went to sleep late, but I woke up early
Kissed the game goodbye, baby goodnight Shirley
Proud problems and swallowed it, even dealt with a lot of lip
Had to put up with politics, never even acknowledged it
I just kept on grinding and knew that the people’s with me
Even dealt with some hate, inside of my own city
But I rised above it, didn’t think nothing of it
I made music for the people and everybody loved it

[Hook]
Goodnight Shirley, goodnight, goodnight (x4)
I went to sleep late, but I woke up early
Kissed the game goodbye, baby goodnight Shirley
Goodnight, goodnight, goodnight, goodnight (x2)

[Verse 2: Jelly Roll]
I’m sick and tired, lord I’m trying to change
To tell the truth, I finally said goodbye to the game
Eyes bloodshot red, I’m high as a parasail
Yeah, my fat ass made a living off a f**king set of scales
And I remember back when we was at it, we was broke
We ain’t had nothing going so we had to sell dope
When we used to hit the studio they thought we was a joke
Nobody could have predicted that this shit would finally blow
Man we came up from the bottom I mean close to the trap
And by the bottom I mean down there with the roaches and rats
Now that I got a little money, I don’t know how to act
My city love me back when I ain’t even know how to rap

[Hook]
