[Verse I]
Am
I went to the moped store said fuck it
C                   G
Salesman like "What up, what's your budget?"
        Am
And I'm like "Honestly, I don't know nothing about mopeds"
C                  G
He said "I got the one for you, follow me"
Am
Oh it's too real
C                   G
Chromed out mirror, I don't need a windshield
Am
 But on a seat, how can it be on two wheels
C                   G
Eight hundred cash, that's a hell of a deal
           Am
I'm headed Downtown, cruising through the alley
C                  G
Tip-toeing in the street like Dally
Am
Pulled up, moped to the valley
C                 G
Whitewalls on the wheels like (mayonnaise)
Am                    C                  G
Dope, my crew is ill, and all we need is two good wheels
    Am
Got gas in the tank, cash in the bank
      C                        G
And a bad little mama with her ass in my face
Am
I'mma lick that, stick that, break her off, (Kit-Kat)
C                       G
Snuck her in backstage, you don't need a wristband

Dope

[Verse II]
Am
 Killing the game 'bout to catch a body
C                  G
Passed the Harley, Dukie own a Ducati
Am                                C
 Timbaland, Khaled, Scott Storch, Birdman
              G
God damn man, everybody got Bugattis
Am
 But I'mma keep it hella 1987
                                     C                  G
Head into the dealership and drop a stack and cop a Kawasaki
Am
I'm stunting on everybody, hella raw, pass the wasabi
C                   G
I'm so low that my scrotums almost dragging on the concrete
Am
My seat is leather, alright, I'm lying, it's pleather
C                        G
But girl, we could still ride together
Am
You don't need an Uber, you don't need a cab
C                          G
fuck a bus pass, you got a moped man
        Am
She got 1988 Mariah Carey hair
C                    G
Very rare, mom jeans on her derriere
         Am
Throwing up the West Side as we tear in the air
            C                    G
Stopping by pipe place, throwing fish to a player

[Chorus]
C

C                   C
Downtown, downtown (Downtown)
Em  F                     G     Am
She has her arms around your waist
Em  F                         G
    With a balance that could keep us safe
C   Em   F                      G      Am
    Have you ever felt the warm embrace
Em  F                   G             C    Em F  G  Am Em F G
    Of the leather seat between your legs

Stone washed, so raw

A po-po can't reprimand me
         Am
I'm in a B-Boy stance, I'm not dancing
           C                      G
I got your girl in the back doing tandem
            Am
Because I'm too damn quick, I'm too damn slick
      C                     G
Whole downtown yelling out "who that is?"

[Verse III]
     Am
It's me, the M the A-C the K
 C                               G

Going down the backstreet listening to Blackstreet
Am
 Running around the whole town
C                              G
Neighbors yelling at me like, "you need to slow down"
      Am
Going thirty-eight, damn, chill yourself out
C                      G
Mow your damn lawn and sit the hell down
     Am                                     C               G
If I only had one helmet I would give it to you, give it to you
Am                                             C               G
