Lyrics

MLS 01.png

[Chorus: CHAI]
Do you know what a beautiful creature
How happy you look?
Ah, oh
Do you know what a lazy culture gorilla?
ハエたちブーン (ちょっとくさい)
It's so funk
いいかんじ beautiful day (ちょっとくさい )
It’s so funk
いいかんじ beautiful day
スーパーゴリラ

[Verse 1: JPEGMAFIA & CHAI]
How you gon' tell me how to do and how to do it? (Yeah)
Maneuver with this Ruger, these bullets is for the hoopers
You n****s is stupid, Peggy been broke for a long time (For real)
Only dirty n****s around me like my own kind (Grr)
I feel like Tom Jones, (Huh) I feel like Dev Hynes (Yeah)
I got a fresh Gat', I test the new iron
Hold me, chains on my neck like a slave
Fuck a will, better bury me with a hole in my grave
(*スーパーゴリラ*)
I got too much to say, labels tried docking my pay
I’m like, "Ooh"
Compress me or check me, I am Peggy Bae
Divine, feel like I'm blessed but I never pray
Twisting at my shows, n****s think I'm doing ballet, uh
I wish a n***a wouldn't claim that I'm a phase,
I'm a wave, (Wave) sayin' that shit that you scared to say (Shit)
(It's nasty)

[Break: CHAI]
(Gorilla)
スーパーゴリラ

[Verse 2: JPEGMAFIA & CHAI]
Clean house, clean bathwater, and clean mind
I'm such a positive n***a, throw up a peace sign
Get to the bridge, give ’em lead time
They be gunning for me! (Gunning for me!)
Put on a face for the critics ’cause they beneath me (Oh, oh, facts)
Never met an A&R that I wanted to be
(*It's so funk, いいかんじ beautiful day*)
Begging for plus ones drink tickets and VIP
These n****s get fat blow money, and lose beefs (Super gorilla)
It’s tragic, shake my head when I hit the ballot (Yeah)
Shake my head, n****s got more money than talent
Mmmm, n****s know I shoot above the average (Pssht)
Young Peggy keep whippin' wiggas till I kick the casket
(*スーパーゴリラ*)
They think I'm fixing matches, the scope came with attachments (YEE!)
We at your house, we staking out, we eating rations
Expensive habits, it's gas
I told that bitch to jump the ship, only room for the captain
(It’s nasty)

[Chorus: CHAI]
スーパーゴリラ
It's so funk
いいかんじ beautiful day
スーパーゴリラ
Ha, ha, ha, ha-ha-ha-ha
Ha, ha, ha, ha-ha-ha-ha
スーパーゴリラ

[Break: JPEGMAFIA & CHAI]
Ooh
Thinkin' bout ooh
Thinkin' bout ooh
Thinkin' bout ooh, Thinkin' bout ooh
Thinkin' bout ooh
Thinkin' bout ooh
Thinkin' bout ooh
(スーパーゴリラ)

Production

MLS is one of the tracks made during the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown in 2020. MLS went through a lot of changes during it's development. At first JPEGMafia had one more verse in the song but it wasn't used in the final version because the contributions from CHAI gave the song a very different feeling than the original demo of the track had.[1]

Trivia

  • MLS is one of the two deluxe tracks from Song Machine, Season One: Strange Timez that was played on Song Machine Live, the other one being Opium.
  • CHAI sings parts of the track in Japanese.
