Lyrics:

Ooh, yeah, ooh yeah
Huh, hold up
Not the banyang, the banyang
Oh oh ooh whao, ooh whao (F*ck no)
Not the banyang, the banyang
Oh oh ooh whoa, ooh whao (F*ck no)

Not the bang b*tch
That sh*t ain’t it b*tch
That sh*t is ugly as the f*ck
Take it out b*tch

I don’t like the front and sh*t
Don’t like the front and sh*t
Take it out
That banyang ain’t it b*tch

Oh oh ooh whoa, ooh whoa (F*ck no)
Not the banyang, the banyang
Oh oh ooh woah, ooh whao (F*ck no)
