Splurgeboys's official lyric explanation


[Rocket]
"Performing at the shows, couple labels tryina tip us" the lyric before that is *"we're taking off just like a stripper."

So, basically, you're taking off, like, we're setting sail, we're taking off... the plane is taking off - Paper Aeroplane and all that.

So we're blowing up but you're, also, "taking off" can be a reference to a stripper - be taking off her clothes. So that's where it's like the labels are interested now because you're starting to make moves so they want to throw some money at you.

So it's like you're "taking of just like a stripper, performing at the shows, couple labels tryina tip us" it's like throwing the ones at you. And, then...

[Teeboi]
You tip for big things, innit? It's like you're tipped for big things it's like that's what the tipping is. That's the double... the double...

[Rocket]
...entendre.

[Teeboi]
The double there.

[Rocket]
And then, "if it's Jay Knox on the line, you better pick up" because Jay Knox is, obviously, looking after us - doing a great job and he only calls when its business time. So, best be on your job.
