Little Simz – Standing Ovation Lyrics



Ooh, ooh, ooh

Ooh, ooh, ooh

Ooh, ooh, ooh

[Verse 1]

Why the desperate need for an applause?

I’ll wait

Is she the GOAT here? Well, it’s safe to assume

Everybody panic when I step in the room

And I can feel that shit a mile off

Niggas is rappin’ about pieces

People are really dying, is that what’s needed?

I can’t save your soul, you need Jesus

Tell me, please

Why the desperate need to be remembered?

Everybody know ’bout what you’ve done

How far you’vе come, I’m guilty, it’s a little self-cеntered

People change when it’s about personal gain

I stay in my lane ’cause I’m not done with these checks

Give me what I deserve and not speak on the rest

Don’t know what has occurred then do not aimlessly guess

It’s a gift and a curse to be this pretty and blessed

[Bridge 1]

(Blessed, blessed, blessed)

So blessed, used to plug that twenty-pound mic’ into the back of the Mac (Mac, Mac, Mac)

Just so you can hear my voice

Always knew this was my callin’ but I’m here by choice

And things change

Shit been dark for a minute I’m blessed, blessed, blessed

Delirious, it’s hard to function on this winners time (Blessed, blessed, blessed)

Mouths to feed, my nigga

[Verse 2]

Scripts to read, my nigga

Double life, livin’ overseas, my nigga, shit

Left home for it

Jazmine just had a daughter, man, she’s so gorgeous

Told me life is givin’ life and I’m so for it

Maybe one day

Nothing’s more important and family’s where the love stays

Dealing with society’s pressures is one thing

Let alone all of the problems that funds bring

But no stress

Understand it comes with the process

I follow my intuition ’cause it knows best

I’m so used to gettin’ it on my own, yes

I know my people wanna see me win, I’ll never let you down

Standin’ ovation for the one who’s wearin’ a crown

I got royalty In my blood, I was born great

Don’t allow anyone to undermine your fate

[Bridge 2]

You’ve awakened the fearless

High beams and lucid dreams

And don’t be so obsessed to me

You think you know what’s best for me

Take my energy, come to find there’s nothing left of me

Went from being small-time to becoming my own entity

Went from bein’ broke as fuck and tryin’ to find identity

To buyin’ the finer things and isolatin’ memories

What is it I’m meant to be?

[Verse 3]

I think I need a standin’ ovation

Over ten years in the game, I’ve been patient

God has always told me to be myself

Let go and free yourself

Tell the truth and shame Satan

Now I gotta pave the way for the next generation

That’s comin’ up under me and I love to see it

Thought I was bluffin’, didn’t see it comin’

Hol’ up, think this is cold? You ain’t seein’ nothin’

The glow up, all they discussin’

But I don’t let it distract me

Load the pen up, cockin’ back and get to bussin’

Standin’ up to who? I made the scene lie down

Get it how I live it, how it be’s right now

I got another twenty in the shit, I’m cemented

Take over businesses, tell the kids, “Start investin’”

We built the pyramids, can’t you see what we are blessed with?

From the hieroglyphics to the hood lyricist

The priests, the imams

The good books you live with, the Rumi quotes

VIEW:  Tory Lanez - Hot Toddy Lyrics

The elder sisters, the tribal mantras

The Jazz players, holistic doctors

Spiritual teachers, doers, and the dulers

The protectors and the rulers

The kids of the future

The immortal soldiers and the fearless protest-protesters

The motivational speakers and the honest Black leaders

The divine healers, the every day low-paid believers

The overachievers in the shadow of the gatekeepers

Came down to teach us


Blessed, blessed, blessed

Blessed, blessed, blessed

Blessed, blessed, blessed

All these trophies in the crib, got ’em sittin’ nice

Blessed, blessed, blessed

Blessed, blessed, blessed

After all the hard work that we put inside

Everybody claim to be boss but I’m a different kind

Hate it or love it, we rise above it
