"Shoot Me Down" as written by Dwayne Carter and Dreshan Smith....
Open up your hearts people
Page one chapter one verse muthaf***in' one

Yeah uh huh I'm drinkin' hot tea b****, feel me

Yeah now if you let me
You wont regret me
S*** if you let me
You wont forget me,
Remember, and if you don't then mind the,
Hold up bah bah! There's a reminder
I ain't kind hot I'm sauna
I sweat money and the bank is my shower
Ha ha and that pistol is my towel
Ha so stop sweatin' me coward
And I would
Die for ours ride
For ours
Supply the flowers
This is history in the making
Now shut the f*** up and let me make it

Please don't shoot me down cause I'm flyin' I'm flyin'
I'm high-up
Please don't me down cause I'm flyin' I'm high up
(This tea is at a real good temperature right now, so am I)

I spit Alcatraz bars I know
And d-boys is the only alphabet boys I know
Gotta 3-80 on my waist and Rambo at home
No more bandanna round my dome bandanna in my right pocket
B**** I'm grown f*** what you on
Now watch me stand on the world as I sit in a throne
And if I jump I'm a fly and look into the eagles eye
And see I am nothin' like you, why?
B**** see, it gets me how nothing gets me or get to me
And if you shootin' for the star than just shoot me
But your bullets don't reach mars
Pause, clause, because I'm a a beast I'm a dog ill get'cha
My picture should be in the dictionary
Next to the definition of definition
Because repetition is the father of learnin'
And son I know your barrel burnin' but

Please don't shoot me down cause I'm flyin' I'm flyin'
I'm high-up
Please don't me down cause I'm flyin' I'm high up
(This tea is at a real good temperature right now, so am I)

Pappa I did it to em, I'm a bastard
And I'm a do it again like n**** backwards
These n****s backwards but they behind us
Now watch me get high like times up
Now D bring the drums back
And watch me hit em' where there lungs sat like that
I get respect cause if I don't I'm a take it
I see your boys hatin' and I see your girls naked
Drum sound like a naked gun switch clips with my thumb
Then I pop another clip in and aim at his vision
Cause Wayne is his vision cause Wayne is the mission
I'm aimin' at a mirror

Please don't shoot me down cause I'm flyin' im flyin'
(And I've done it before, please don't make me do it no more)
I'm high-up
Please don't me down cause I'm flyin' I'm high up
(Watch me soar, where the f*** is my guitar, now roar)

    General Commentthink this song is just about don't shoot people down, meaning don't disrespect me or judge me, without getting to actually know my full potential.
    also don't shoot me down physically. like a drive-by er gunfight, er somethin.

    General CommentThis song has to do with sexual abuse. Weezy was molested at age 9 by his mothers boyfriend at the time.

    General Commenti think it might be about suicide or self doubt, because of the whole looking in the mirror thing

    General CommentI agree with privatepyle. It's about not bringing down people... it's about what he's been through, what he's trying to accomplish... and don't belittle that just because you don't agree.
