Testo

[Intro]
Don't let anybody speak for this today
Don't let anybody speak for this today

[Verso 1: Nicki Minaj]
Ay yo, trophy wife, out, you won me
Until you had to find out if you won me
Now you benched, aw, you bum knee
Now I'm the bad guy, call me Chun-Li
'Cause you was slippin', yep you clumsy
And everything I be, you can't just unsee
Sips tea, and it's unsweet
Respect bad gyal, when me done speak (now, now)
Now he shooting his shot like drive-by
Why you have to make me go call up my side guy?
Can’t let a F-boy F up my nice vibes
Yo Ariana, come let me give you a high five

[Coro: Ariana Grande]
The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole
Don't let anybody speak for this today
The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole
Don't let anybody speak for this today
The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole
Don't let anybody speak for this today
The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole
Don't let anybody speak for this today

[Verso 2: Ariana Grande]
What does she say?
What did he say?
You don't listen 'cause you know everything
You don't even need dreams
Tellin' everybody "stay woke, don't sleep"
Ah, gonna break that shit down
You been waitin' for something way beyond the realm
Ah, guess you're way above it now
And that's your way around it now

Happenin' to you
Shit that you been through
Damn, I'm so confused
Who cares about the rush of it?
Give an inch of you, that's the bottom line

Know it all (know it all)
Givin' you a box of chances
Every time you blow it all (blow it all)
'Cause if it was shade, he would just throw it all (throw it all)
It's like you're trying not to blow it all (blow it all)
Blow it all (blow it all)

[Coro: Ariana Grande]
The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole
Don't let anybody speak for this today
The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole
Don't let anybody speak for this today
The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole
Don't let anybody speak for this today
The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole
Don't let anybody speak for this
