I come from Cleveland
Y'all can really hear it now.

Hit 'em like comic books,
Kaboom powpow

Into a girl's mind spitfineawinedine,
I keep two phone, sidekick for bad dimes.

And a topical question is why im so chill,
girls don't understand, he aint even made a mill.

They say I'm complexed just like the magazine,
I wear my closet complex like a magazine.

I get in their head, They don't even see my bread.
Oh so, oh so fly cool as I wanna be, one hell of a guy.

I keep 'em short, sweet, thick and petite,
Ridin' alongside in my Cutlass Supreme.

I'm from a place where old school's are common,
gotta explain every time I'm rhymin' I be.

I be all day rollin' in my whip got my sippin' cup out on the low.
I keep two pretty woman by my side I'm cooler than a polar bear's toes
And I say,
Cleveland is that, Cleveland is the, Cleveland is the reason I'm cool.
Cleveland is that, Cleveland is the, Cleveland is the reason I'm leanin'.
Cleveland is that, Cleveland is the, Cleveland is the reason I'm cool.
Cleveland is that, Cleveland is the, Cleveland is my my city.

Yup yuppers smile all the time while,
I chop it up like Michael Watt's slow talk style.

So the girlies can really catch all my accent,
and the double O got her own accent.

Some niggas sell drugs to provide for they fam,
some niggas sell CD's up out they trunk man.

Some niggas they go to school for that high learnin',
I play the O'Jays while I'm turnin' lanes.


We be on our shift, freakin' black and milds still controllin' the whip.
Aint no city like Cleveland, cruisin' wit my bad bitch in the evenin'.

You wanna know exactly why I'm this way,
Take a trip to the land, swing this way.

After the song done aint much I can say,
Cleveland is my city, city.

I be all day rollin' in my whip got my sippin' cup out on the low.
I keep two pretty woman by my side I'm cooler than a polar bear's toes
And I say,
Cleveland is that, Cleveland is the, Cleveland is the reason I'm cool.
Cleveland is that, Cleveland is the, Cleveland is the reason I'm leanin'.
Cleveland is that, Cleveland is the, Cleveland is the reason I'm cool.
Cleveland is that, Cleveland is the, Cleveland is my my city.

    General CommentI'm not from Cleaveland but this song is dope as fuck.

    I'd really like to know what he was thinking when he wrote this line...

    "I get in their head, They don't even see my bread.
    Oh so, oh so fly cool as I wanna be with another guy."

    Sounds a little gay. Still an awesome song though.

    General CommentThis song is essentially Cudi's tribute to his hometown of Cleveland Ohio. Furthermore how it's influenced his game with females and pretty much how he conducts his life. Dope track for sure.

    General Commenti made an account just to say it's not

    "I get in their head, They don't even see my bread.
    Oh so, oh so fly cool as I wanna be with another guy. "

    the correct lyrics are

    "I get in their head, They don't even see my bread.
    Oh so, oh so fly cool as I wanna be ONE HELL OF A GUY. "

    k that's all,
    much love for Cudi <3 amazing fucking song.
