A character a day 30-day imitation challenge: Day 15 – Watsky

Thought it would be fun to play around with a favorite track for today’s entry.

I normally use Watsky’s songs to warm up before a session, just to get the tongue moving. That, and humming to The Hobbit’s “Far Over The Misty Mountains Cold”.

After 23 attempts of getting the lyrics to match the instrumental, before finally landing a somewhat usable recording, I pretty much made up my mind on not to pursue a career in music.

Now, excuse me while I go wipe off the spit off my pop-filter.

Lyrics of the piece

Whoa whoa whoa
What do you take us for?
Whoa whoa whoa
What do you take us for?

I jump the freeway median, I’m savage
Cause my mode is that I’m meaner than the average
Like my teacher taught me, when I heard the crowd applaud
I thought I was an atheist until I realized I’m a God!

It could hurt a bit when I murder shit
In a moment I’ll be tying off a tourniquet
When I burn them and I hit them in the sternum
I don’t even got to enter, but I’m gonna win the tournament

That’s what I’m all about
I do what I got to do and never gonna pout
And I hope that it would have been the end of it and I’m out
But they never tend to give me the benefit of the doubt

Ever since I was a little kid
I know that I’ve been looking for the hot, hot spotlight
And if you really wonder what I think about the competition
They were not-not-not tight

I’ve been reading my scripture
Every photo bomber wanna be in my picture
And you better bet I’m living every single day
like it’s the motherfucking Catalina Wine Mixer

Bada bing, bada boom!
When I walk in, I’m the king of the room
And I get it locked in, like the king in a tomb
When I spit a toxin and they cough on the fumes

Cause I’m back in the nick of time
And I’m attacking the fickle mind
I’m a jackal, I’ll rip his hide
I’ma tackle him, pick a fight
I be Dracula set to bite
In the black of the bitter night and I’m out! (poof)

Whoa whoa whoa
What do you take us for?
Whoa whoa whoa
What do you take us for?
