Lyrics: "Lover Not a Fighter"

800828333522.170x170-75I got swag to click my clack 
And I don't back down from nada. 
But trust these words 
Now, first things first. 
See I'm a lover not a fighter. 
Ain't too cool to break lame rules. 
Cuz I know new school's the brighter. 
But old school eyes 
and wisdom's why 
I be a lover not a fighter. Oh! 

Kid, try to step to me? 
I try to put it down gent-a-ly 
If ya can't GET with it 
Ya gots to STICK with it. 
Nothing comes with e-a-s-e. 
Ya gotta learn how to spell out ya dreams. 
Don't just leave it for the birds to sing. 
Cuz in high definition ya can't help but listen. 
No one messing with a melody. 

Becuz, I got swag to click my clack 
And I don't back down from nada. 
But trust these words 
Now, first things first. 
See I'm a lover not a fighter. 
Ain't too cool to break lame rules. 
Cuz I know new school's the brighter. 
But old school eyes 
and wisdom's why 
I be a lover not a fighter. 

So now, here's the deal. 
Ya gotta stop ur whinin'. 
(Just stop ur whinin'.) 
And I mean, for real! 
There's no use for cryin'. 
(No use for cryin'.) 
Ya got to be a lover or be quiet. 
(Be a lover or shut up!) 
I tell ya now ya got to feel it, 
baby, feel it! U can't fight it! 

Ava: 
When I was just a kid I wouldn't make my bed. 
I would throw my stuffed dino at my brother's head. 
But don't call me evil. He would throw em back. 
Poor mom, she would almost have a heart attack. 
My best friend, Mikyla--I call her sister. 
One time she tried to pocket all my Polly Pockets. 
So I pinched her. (Oh no!) 
I can't say I wouldn't do it again. 
But now I'm older. And now I know how to be a friend. Yep! 
So now I've learned how to play the game. Yep! 
Now big sista gotta lead the way. Yep! 
Show my brotha how to make the change 
to be a lover on the day to day. 
Face to face, we all just the same inside. 
We show responsibility to build our pride. 
Stay proud! No reason why u should hide it. 
Sing loud! Gotta feel it, baby, u can't fight it. Cmon! 

So now ya feelin' like your soul is free 
cuz u been hustling like an athlete. 
Now that u feel strong go sing ur song 
cuz little homie u put in your t-i-m-e. 
Sometimes u gotta fight for peace, 
but when ur strong u just love and lead. 
So all u boys and girls go show this world 
just how the good life's meant to be. 

Now lookie here, becuz 
I got swag to click my clack 
And I don't back down from nada. 
But trust these words 
Now, first things first. 
See I'm a lover not a fighter. 
If u can't make peace with this funk 
Ya better pump that sanitizer. 
It's not just words behind these germs. 
See I'm a lover not a fighter. 

Now, here's the deal. Ya gotta stop ur whinin'. (Just stop ur whinin'.)
And I mean, for real! There's no use for cryin'. (No use for cryin'.) 
Ya got to be a lover or be quiet. (Be a lover or shut up!) 
I tell ya now ya got to feel it, baby, feel it! U can't fight it!.
