"Bartender" as written by Faheem Rasheed Najm and Aliaune Thiam....
Yeah, uh huh, yeah, yeah

Broke up with my girl last night, so I went to the club (so I went to the club)
Put on a fresh white suit, in a Mini coupe sitting on dubs (sitting on dubs)
I'm just looking for somebody to talk to and show me some love (show me some love)
If you know what I mean, uh huh
Everybody jockin' me as soon as I stepped in the spot (I stepped in the spot)
Two hundred bitches, and I'm bettin' ain't none of them hot (ain't none of them hot)
'Cept for this pretty young thang that was workin' all the way at the top (all the way at the top)
Shawty, what is your name?

Ooh, she made us drinks to drink
We drunk 'em, got drunk
And then I think she thinks I'm cool
She gave me a wink, I winked back
And then I think that we hit it off something proper like...

I like the bartender (Ooh, if you're lookin' for me)
I'm at the bar with her (Uh huh, okay)
I like the bartender (Yeah, if you're lookin' for me)
I'm at the bar with her (Ooh, uh huh, okay)

Got a brand new girl, so I'm feeling all good inside (all good inside)
Feel like I put some brand new twenty-fours on a brand new ride (on a brand new ride)
Triple shot of Patron on the rocks with little bit of lime (with a little bit of lime)
I'm just keeping it real (uh huh)
Baby still working at the club, so I'm getting in free (so I'm getting in free)
Wednesday night, I'm on the list: T-Pain plus three (T-Pain plus three)
Every time I hit the spot, baby girl taking care of me (taking care of me)
How do you think I feel?

Ooh, she made us drinks to drink
We drunk 'em, got drunk
And now I know she thinks I'm cool
She gave me a wink, I winked back
And then I think that we 'gon have fun at my spot tonight

I like the bartender (Ooh, if you're lookin' for me)
I'm at the bar with her (Uh huh, okay)
I like the bartender (Yeah, if you're lookin' for me)
I'm at the bar with her (Ooh, uh huh, okay)

Shorty, I'm sure you heard that I rarely ever come out (never come out)
Unless I'm in the M6 doing tricks, freeway burnt out (freeway burnt out)
Got a passenger side that's empty, wanting it to be your spot (be your spot)
Put you on my billboard, we can act like the charts; I can end up on top (end up on top)
Don't smoke, don't drink: that's why I don't be by the bar, baby (baby)
Just lookin' at you from a distance looking like a goddamn star, baby (baby)
So, my girl don't see me; T-Pain, can I get those keys to the car? (those keys to the car)
'Bout to go and bang bang boogie with my cutie, and I'll see you tomor' (see you tomor')

Ooh, she made us drinks to drink
We drunk 'em, got drunk
And now I know she thinks I'm cool
She gave me a wink, I winked back (uh huh)
And then I think that (uh-huh) we 'gon have fun at my spot tonight (oh, yes, we will)

I like the bartender (Ooh, if you're lookin' for me)
I'm at the bar with her (Uh huh, okay)
I like the bartender (Yeah, if you're lookin' for me)
I'm at the bar with her (Ooh, uh huh, okay)

    General CommentOmg omg this song is so good!!
    [if your deaf]
    This just shows how pointless rap and hip hop music has gotten.

    Honestly wtf?
    Bartenders?
    Laffy taffy?
    Umberellas?

    Such stupidity yet people by into it.
    I don't get it?

    Where's the point? The meaning?
    There's none.

    I know t-pain isn't shakespear, but atleast put some thought into the music you release...

    General CommentHow could you possibly say this has no meaning? It's about as deep as when Akon sings "I see you winding and grinding on that pole, you see me looking and you and you already know I wanna fuck you."

    So, basically, he sees a dancer in a strip joint and realises that he wants to have sex with her. Deep, yeah?

    Being dumped by your girl and going to a club full of ugly chicks and getting into the bartender is much better.


    The very first comment (by drewsbaby1) said: "it makes you think."


    LOL!!!!11!!!one!!!1!!!!eleven!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    Is such a thinker!
    To think this song has meanings is to think mike tyson has a purpose in life.

    General CommentI think this song is about a troubled bartender who needs to let go and experience the real world in ways not imaginable to human beings.

    General Commentlol, this is great. People criticizing T-pain for not having meaning in his lyrics.

    Why should he devote the extra few minutes it'd take him to write something meaningful when people will buy into any catchy hook, beat, or chorus that comes out. It's not that artists like T-pain, Akon, Lil Jon, etc can't write meaningful songs, it's that they have absolutely no reason to when they can do a half-assed job and make just as much, if not more money than people who devote a lot of time to writing meaningful lyrics.

    T-pain isn't stupid, he isn't illiterate, he just knows he doesn't have to try too hard to get a hit.
