Lyrics for "Wanna Get Down" by Mission Man

Sometimes I just wanna get down
And lose the sense of being profound
Quit with the nouns
And start with the verbs
Doing the things that make my heart purr
Going out to a club to have some fun
And what is this I can't get it done
Because there's a cover band blocking me
Sometimes this world is mocking me
So I decide to go home and play the bass

Then I do my thing and sing
Then I decide to freestyle for a while
[freestyle til the chorus]

Chorus: Sometimes I just wanna get down, wanna get down, wanna get down

I've gotta tell you this that when I get down
There are no drugs anywhere to be found
Because I like my creativity
To be mine because it belongs to me
Sometimes I will understand
That I have to get past the cover band
To socialize with my fellow man
And try my hand
At a game of pool
Making a few shots that are really cool
5 railing the 8 ball in the corner pocket
Even if I make it, I just can't stop it's
Not enough
I have to try something really tough
I have to try the passing lanes shot
Even though I know that it's not
Got a remote shot
At making it
I'm having fun so I'm taking it
As I'm playing, the game's on the TV
I've hated Shaq since before the days of Kobe
I love the Orlando Magic
It's kind of tragic
That Grant Hill just can't play his game
The organization hasn't been the same
Since Shaq rejected
Offers and defected
He's now infected
The purple and gold
I feel the game has lost it's soul
Maybe Lebron and Melo can bring it back
Regardless of all that
There's still one fact
I love playin' a little basketball, basketball
Smilin' to myself as I watch it fall
Standin' tall but playin' small
Passin' out a sweet little dish
That gets me an assist
Hittin' a smooth jumper as I flip my wrist

Chorus: Sometimes I just wanna get down, wanna get down, wanna get down

Sometimes I just stay at home
Having fun with friends or all alone
Playing video games to pass the time
Watching movies to distract my mind
Traveling to Dagobah, so I can find
A man named Yoda, who's one of a kind
Going to ESPN.com, and reading every line
If it's late at night, I might go to Perkins
Sometimes I just want some french silk pie after working
Other times I want to lose the weight
Man it's been a while since I've been on a date
Maybe it's because I'm picky when it comes to women
I don't like playing games so I'm not winning
I want to be honest from the beginning
I'm not looking for casual sex or just to get drunk
So it's hard to find what I want
So I'm going to keep
Runnin' for my own sake
Runnin' to overcome my mistakes
Runnin' so I still have it late
Runnin' so I won't hate
Then I'm going to kick it straight
Into the weightliftin' Jam, weightliftin' Jam, weightliftin' Jam, yeah the Weightliftin' Jam
Then I'll be weightliftin' again to the weightliftin' Jam, weightliftin' again to the weightliftin' Jam
There's one more thing I understand
When I'm done making music
I just wanna listen to it

Chorus: Sometimes I just wanna get down, wanna get down, wanna get down
