Montero (Call Me By Your Name)- Lil Nas X

[Verse 1]
I caught it bad yesterday
You hit me with a call to your place
Ain’t been out in a while anyway
Was hopin’ I could catch you throwin’ smiles in my face
Romantic talkin’? You don’t even have to try
You’re cute enough to fuck with me tonight
Lookin’ at the table, all I see is weed and white
Baby, you livin’ the life, but nigga, you ain’t livin’ right

[Pre-Chorus]
Cocaine and drinkin’ with your friends
You live in the dark, boy, I cannot pretend
I’m not fazed, only here to sin
If Eve ain’t in your garden, you know that you can

[Chorus]
Call me when you want, call me when you need
Call me in the morning, I’ll be on the way
Call me when you want, call me when you need
Call me out by your name, I’ll be on the way like

[Post-Chorus]
Mmm, mmm, mmm
Mmm, mmm, mmm

[Verse 2]
Ayy, ayy
I wanna sell what you’re buyin’
I wanna feel on your ass in Hawaii
I want that jet lag from fuckin’ and flyin’
Shoot a child in your mouth while I’m ridin’
Oh, oh, oh, why me?
A sign of the times every time that I speak
A dime and a nine, it was mine every week
What a time, an incline, God was shinin’ on me
Now I can’t leave
And now I’m actin’ hella elite
Never want the niggas that’s in my league
I wanna fuck the ones I envy, I envy

[Pre-Chorus]
Cocaine and drinkin’ with your friends
You live in the dark, boy, I cannot pretend
I’m not fazed, only here to sin
If Eve ain’t in your garden, you know that you can

[Chorus]
Call me when you want, call me when you need
Call me in the morning, I’ll be on the way
Call me when you want, call me when you need
Call me out by your name, I’ll be on the way like

[Post-Chorus]
Oh, call me by your name (Mmm, mmm, mmm)
Tell me you love me in private
Call me by your name (Mmm, mmm, mmm)
I do not care if you lyin’
