Five Ten And A Half When I Got My Shoes On

by Duncan Jones

I don’t dress to impress I’m low stress I like fun
My style’s outside you won’t find me in the club
I like to get tipsy but I’d rather get higher
And I like my days off I like bein’ retired
I like not doin’ sh** no, I’m in love with it
First time in while, mind’s clear, feel legit
And life is good, life’s grand, relaxin’ ‘cause I can
Got my dose and was out and I left without a plan
But when you got it like we do nothin’s ever a gamble
And when you got it like we do nothin’s hard to handle
So when they say I’m five ten I just smile, move along
Because I’m five ten and a half when I got my shoes on

I guess I just like it hot and summer is my fave
Yeah you can fight the whole world but you can’t fight the wave
Say hey sweet girl we got nothin’ but time
And I’m always lookin’ for a partner in crime

From laid and paid to laid out and faded
We don’t hold sh** back, not exactly understated
So come come mamita won’t you ven p’aca
Ya sabes que yo quiero llevarte a bailar
Yes a drink for me matter of fact make it three
Because I like this band and tonight I’m gonna lean
I got music in my heart I got music in my soul
I find peace in the breeze and I got a new goal
Gimme ten and a pen and I can dance with the paper
But I’m better in person girl you’ll find out later
And if she thinks I’m five ten I’m all, “Nah you so wrong ...”
I’m five ten and a half when I got my shoes on

I guess I just like it hot and summer is my fave
Yeah you can fight the whole world but you can’t fight the wave
Say hey sweet girl we got nothin’ but time
And I’m always lookin’ for a partner in crime

Time becomes days and the years in a line
And the years pass by and soon become time
I seen the cycle come and go and it’s comin’ again
And this time I’m gonna ride and you’re invited my friend
So let’s quit the sh** and let’s get somethin’ fired up
Got nothing to lose but the life we’re tired of
I heard winter’s comin’ but the summer always wins
And changing who’s in the mirror’s how to wash away your sins
Though I’m not quite the brightest I do try to be wise
And I know that after night comes the bright sunrise
And I know I’m five ten, kinda like King Kong
But I’m five ten and a half when I got my shoes on

I guess I just like it hot and summer is my fave
Yeah you can fight the whole world but you can’t fight the wave
Say hey sweet girl we got nothin’ but time
And I’m always lookin’ for a partner in crime

Someone hand me one more that I can’t afford
And I’ll get my sh** together but just not before
Someone passes me another and the stars come out
And we’ll gather ‘round the fire and we’ll sing it out loud
If you got yourself problems well tonight you forget ‘em
And if you got people hatin’ it’s alright you just let ‘em
Because you’re better than that we’re gonna form our own pack
And we’ll run it all the way then we’ll run it right back
This life’s not worth it if you’re not havin’ fun
Never hesitate to say it when you love someone
And if they stand five ten at the end of my song
Then they’re five ten and a half when they got their shoes on

I guess I just like it hot and summer is my fave
Yeah you can fight the whole world but you can’t fight the wave
Say hey sweet girl we got nothin’ but time
And I’m always lookin’ for a partner in crime

I guess I just like it hot and summer is my fav
Yeah you can fight the whole world but you can’t fight the wave
Say hey sweet girl we got nothin’ but time
And I’m always lookin’ for a partner in crime
