Blood On The Leaves Song Lyrics

If you haven’t heard this song before, here are the lyrics:

Strange fruit, hanging, from the poplar trees

I just need to clear my mind now
it’s been racin’ since the summertime
and I’m holdin’ down the summer now
and all I want is what I can’t buy now

‘Cause I ain’t got the money on me right now
and I told you to wait
Yeah I told you to wait
so imma need a little more time now
’cause I ain’t got the money on me right now

And I thought you could wait
yeah, I thought you could wait
these bitches surroundin’ me
all want somethin’ out me
then they talk about me

Would be lost without me
we could’ve been somebody
thought you’d be different about it
now I know you not it (I’m the poplar trees)

So let’s get on with it

We could’ve been somebody
‘stead you had to tell somebody
let’s take it back to the first party
when you tried your first molly

And came out of your body
and came out of your body
running naked down the lobby
and you was screamin’ that you love me

Before the limelight tore ya’
before the limelight stole ya’
remember we were so young
when I would hold you
before the blood on the leaves

I know there ain’t wrong with me
something strange is happening

Fuck them other niggas ’cause I’m down with my niggas *3
I ride with my niggas, I’ll die for my…

To all my second string bitches, try and get a baby
trying to get a baby, now you talkin’ crazy
I don’t give a damn if you used to talk to jay-z
he ain’t with you, he with beyoncé, you need to stop actin’ lazy
