11 Childish Gambino Lyrics That Slayed So Hard They Could Go On Your Tombstone

11 Childish Gambino Lyrics That Slayed So Hard They Could Go On Your Tombstone

You could put that shit on your tombstone.

Donald Glover is daddy. If he is ever single and looking for a suburban white girl with a great sense of music, I'd slide into the DMs. I remember the first time I ever listened to Childish Gambino; it was "Sober." As I sat, three sheets to the wind in a frat house, I had a religious experience. Is this how people feel when they hear the voice of God? All my bros know this is how I react whenever I listen to Childish Gambino

His poeticism is cunning, his lyrics are witty, and how could resist his beautiful face (#LightSkinBoys). Honestly, you could quote any quote for any situation: whether that be a first date, job interview, epitaph, jury duty. They are so applicable to life.

His lyrics give me so much life, that they actually kill me. Here are the ones that resurrected me:

1. Bonfire (Camp)

My dick is like an accent mark, it's all about the over Es

Hot like a parked car

I sound weird like 'N****' with a hard R

2. Firefly (Camp)

Girls like, "We love you, we go to LSU

You gotta do a show so we can come and molest you"

LSU be like...

3. Freaks and Geeks (Camp)

The beat is witches brew, but beware that shit is potent

E.E Cummin' on her face, now that's poetry

Yeah, Gambino make it work, I'm the boss move somethin'

4. Heartbeat (Camp)

I miss the sex when you kiss whenever you through

Sixty-nine is the only dinner for two

I was wrong, but would you have listened to you?

I got a heart, but the artichoke is the only thing girls want when you in that smoke

5. Les (Camp)

We could pretend if you want to, like,

We in love and started datin' at your art school

cause either way we both lyin' more than half to the time

That beat got me like...

6. Zombies (Awaken, My Love!)

All I see is zombies

walking all around us

you can hear them

you can hear them breathing

Breathing down your spine

7. World Star (Because the Internet)

My girl ain't bad

she more like evil

When I'm lookin' in the mirror, how fly's this negro?

Someone call 911 because this fire is out of control.

8. Crawl (Because the Internet)

And I still put it down like the family dog

Yeah I murder some, I murder one

Explain it all, Ferguson

We ain't gotta sing the same old love song

Cut a white girl with that same black glove

I wonder who this is about...

9. Sweatpants (Because the Internet)

I got more tail than PetCo

You faker than some Sweet 'N' Low

Yeah, you got some silverware

But really are you eating though?

10. Flight of the navigator( Because the Internet)

I had a dream... I had a dress I was laying over all of us.

There were so many pretty people, so many pretty faces.

I talked to some birds, I fell in love again, and none of this ever ended.

Everything just kept going, and going, and going.

And even when you laughed, you cried. And when you were sad, you were really happy.

Cause you were her. And I got to meet every star, every planet, everything that made me.

And we all kissed and became the same.

We became the same. We became the same.

When you realize Donald is truly a poet.

11. 3005 (Because the Internet)

I used to care what people thought, but now I care more

I mean, nobody out here's got it figured out

So therefore, I've lost all hope of a happy ending.

How could you not love him?

7 Things Every Real Taylor Swift Fan Knows Will 100 Percent Happen On TS7



On April 13th, Taylor Swift posted on her Instagram a picture with the caption "4.26"... since then, every post since has had the same caption, and fans have been theorizing ever since.

1. It's going to be very different from "Reputation"


Looking at her current pastel Instagram theme, it is very, very different than dark, mysterious vibe from her "Reputation" days.

2. This will be one of Taylor's happiest albums yet


Taylor has stayed out of the media for the most part since the release of "Reputation", and I believe that she's enjoyed her time, focusing on her music, friends, family, and relationships during this downtime.

3. This album will reflect on her childhood


In 2016, in an interview with Glamour magazine, Taylor revealed that she was bullied in school, and her mom would often take her to T.J.Maxx after school to look at the opal jewelry in order to cheer her up. On April 14th, she posted a picture of jewelry, including opal. Also, one could say that her current Instagram profile picture has an opal tone to it. These could be hints to Taylor tapping into her childhood for her newest album. Oh, and she dressed up as a "childhood hero" for a New Year's Eve party...

4. ...But also focus on moving forward


From her fresh, pastel Instagram theme to the flowers, butterflies, and overall springy vibes, Taylor has an airy, happy vibe that yells fresh, new life. Perhaps the album will also focus on her rising above everything from "Reputation" and all of the new things in her life.

5. It's going to have hidden eggs placed within the lyrics


All Swift fans know that Taylor loves to play games and create puzzles for us to figure out leading up to album releases. Why does the album itself have to be any different? Hopefully TS7 will have hidden gems in it as well...

6. Jack Antonoff and Max Martin will be back


Jack and Max have been with Taylor since "1989," and I don't think they're going anywhere. If they made it through the sound shift between Swift's 5th and 6th albums, they can work with whatever new ideas Taylor comes up with.

7. If the old Taylor is dead, I think TS7 will be when the new Taylor fully emerges


There's been some butterfly emojis and imagery flying around on Taylor's Instagram, and in a way, I think TS7 will be Taylor emerging from her cocoon of sorts into a butterfly. "Reputation" showed that she was capable of change, and this new album will show a more mature version of Taylor.

Chances are all of these are 100% wrong... but hey, it's fun to theorize while we wait for her new single/album to drop on April 26th.
