Roll Like Water (Lyrics)

VERSE:
Outta state plate must be running late
The way he is driving all up
in my back seat
He rips a high speed pass,
Gives the Evil Eye
Like its the last thing he gotta do
Before he dies

I try to let it roll - mmm
Gotta let it roll

VERSE:
Still I kinda wanna chase him down
Give a piece of my mind
But then Im the clown
Its a waste of my life

Just let it roll - mmm
Try to let it roll

CHORUS:
Let it roll, Let it Roll
Let it roll off like water
Let it roll , Let it Roll
We will all live a whole lot longer
If we Let it Roll

VERSE:
Lady next door, she thinks Im evil
The enemy of the common people
My light is too bright
Guitar is too loud
Lady next door wanna smoke me out

I try to let it roll - mmm
Gotta let it roll

VERSE:
Still I kinda wanna push her buttons
Crank it to eleven
But then Im the chump and Im
Wrecking my Heaven

Just let it roll - mmm
Try to let it roll

CHORUS:
Let it roll, Let it Roll
Let it roll off like water
Let it roll , Let it Roll
We will all live a whole lot longer
If we Let it Roll
