I Gotta Feeling Lil' Wayne Lyrics
Lil Wayne's lyrics in the song "I Gotta Feeling" are typical Wayne lyrics—catchy but somewhat confusing. No doubt Wayne is a musical genius, he's got four Grammy's under his belt to prove it, including the award for Best Rap Song of 2009, "Lollipop." But still, the man is notorious for nonsensical lyrics at times—that's why we've taken the time to explain his "I Gotta Feeling" lyrics to you.
Lil Wayne opens the song with a metaphor—he is the party animal just let off the leash. He then goes on to sing that he's gotten his weed from the west, AKA California, his pills from the east, AKA New York, and his two bottles of Geese, AKA Grey Goose Vodka.
The Black Eyed Peas then come in with a hook; they've got an inkling that tonights going to be a good night, and they repeat this line six times. The song then goes back to Lil Wayne in verse one. He starts off by admitting he is as high as height, which is obviously a reference to how he feels on the weed, pills, and vodka he was consuming earlier in the song. Next, Wayne sings, "I'm young and restless, I shines my guiding light."Here, he is referring to the two famous soap operas, "Young and Restless" and "Guiding Light." He keeps on with the rap, admitting his health is decent, his money's good and his girl is a "dyke." A dyke is a more masculine woman, but exactly what that means to Wayne, we may never know.
Wayne is on a roll in this first verse. He raps, "I'll take the shots," referring to the alcohol, and "I'm bulletproof," referring to the idea that he's invincicle. Nike's infamous slogan even gets tossed in with a special shout out, "Nike just do it, I do what it do." Lil' Wayne does what Nike is doing too. Does that make sense? Of course not, but that's a typical Lil' Wayne line. He admits he started drinking before he came, but he stays away from beer; instead, he drinks champagne because it's more refined. To close verse one, Wayne brags about how he doesn't need to pursue women, they pursue him.
After another Black Eyed Peas hook, Wayne lets loose again with another weed reference. His line "kush got my dutch fat" basically translates as his weed fills up his blunt to the point it is considered fat. He talks about how some people have bad luck, but he's already climbed the success ladder, and now he'll "pull the ladder up" so that no one else can reach the top. Wayne admits he probably needs a counselor, but he's hip hop's announcer and he's in the gun club so don't mess with him.
The next part is clever. Wayne says he's "been a beast and still I am, now I rock and still I jam." Wayne states here that he was, is, and always will be a beast. This part of the song is referring to Will.I.Am too, whose beat Wayne remixed. Wayne says that very few "got that white girl like Will.I.Am." This takes on a double meaning- white girl is slang for cocaine, but also, Fergie is part of Will.I.Am's Black Eyed Peas group, and she is a "white girl."
Wayne concludes the song by saying it's a "murder scene," which is his polite way of saying, "No one's beat is safe. I can kill any beat, i.e. make it better." And that ladies and gentlemen, is Lil' Wayne for you.
