Lithonia Song Lyrics

[Chorus: Childish Gambino]
Cody LaRae
He had a break
He's finding out
That nobody gives a f**k
I did my job
I paid my dues
Love is for fools
'Cause nobody gives a f**k

[Post-Chorus: Childish Gambino]
No one, no one
No one—
Nobody gives a f**k

[Verse: Childish Gambino]
I feel liberated
Over medicated
It was overrated
Damn, what you want?
I can tell by the look on your face (Oh)
Let me outta here (Oh)
I've been gone so long
Don't you know that
This is the moment?
You're watching us throw it away

[Chorus: Childish Gambino]
Cody LaRae (Cody LaRae)
He had a break (He had a break)
He's finding out
That nobody gives a f**k (Oh)
I did my job (I did my job)
I paid my dues (I paid my dues)
Love is for fools
'Cause nobody gives a f**k

[Post-Chorus: Childish Gambino]
Nobody gives a f**k

[Bridge: Childish Gambino]
My sweet Lithonia
What have you done?
These are your children
I am your son

[Chorus: Childish Gambino]
Cody LaRae (Cody LaRae)
What have you done? (He had a break)
(He's finding out)
Nobody gives a f**k
Cody LaRae (Cody LaRae)
What have you done? (I paid my dues)
(Love is for fools)
Nobody gives a f**k

[Outro: Childish Gambino]
Cody LaRae
He had a break
He's finding out
Nobody gives a f**k
