Track Name: Love Graffiti Me
LOVE GRAFFITI ME (JG)

VERSE:
I'm tel-ling you a sto-ry 'bout a guy I know,
When he tagged up my name I knew I'd love him so.
He gets his in-spir-a-tion from the New York Streets,
And he gets his in-spir-a-tion here where my heart beats.

PRE-CHORUS:
When he goes out to, Graf-fi-ti,
I say hey hey hey hey love, Graf-fi-ti me

CHORUS:
Graf-fi-ti me! Graf-fi-ti me! Graf-fi-ti me! Graf-fi-ti me!
Graf-fi-ti me! Graf-fi-ti me! Graf-fi-ti me! Graf-fi-ti me!

He spends his nights putting himself into his street-art,
Hey love, graffiti me!
Then he comes home and puts himself into his sweet-heart.
Hey love, graffiti me!


PRE-CHORUS:
When he goes out to, Graf-fi-ti,
I say hey hey hey hey love, Graf-fi-ti me

CHORUS:
Graf-fi-ti me! Graf-fi-ti me! Graf-fi-ti me! Graf-fi-ti me!
Graf-fi-ti me! Graf-fi-ti me! Graf-fi-ti me! Graf-fi-ti me!

BRIDGE:
Up in the Heights and down in-to the Bay,
From the Boogie Down, down to Boo-ga-loo Down Brodawway
To him all these
are gall-er-ies
that's where you see them
they're his mus-e-um

VERSE (half)
You can keep your Bank-sy and your She-pard Fair-ey
I got my graf-fi-ti guy and I ain't shar-ing

PRE-CHORUS:
When he goes out to, Graf-fi-ti,
I say hey hey hey hey love, Graf-fi-ti me

CHORUS:
Graf-fi-ti me! Graf-fi-ti me! Graf-fi-ti me! Graf-fi-ti me!
Graf-fi-ti me! Graf-fi-ti me! Graf-fi-ti me! Graf-fi-ti me!
