Young Money
Love in a thousand different flavours
I wish that I could taste them all tonight

So you should bring all your friends
I swear that to all y’all my type
All you girls in here, if you’re feeling thirsty
Come on take a sip ’cause you know what I’m servin’
Shimmy shimmy yay, shimmy yay, shimmy ya (drank)
Swalla-la-la (drank)
Swalla-la-la (swalla-la-la)
