You've Been Singing T-Pain's Lyrics Wrong This Whole Time
Think you know every word to "Buy U a Drank" & "All I Do Is Win"? Think again.
Earlier today, T-Pain posted a literally memory-altering tweet.
I don’t wanna throw another wrench in your childhood but also it’s “Everybody hands go UP......... and they stay there....... AND THEY SAY YEAH” sorry -- #AlliDoIsWin I’m from #Tallahassee bro. That’s just how some of us talk.— T-Pain (@TPAIN) November 29, 2017
Most of us at Spin didn’t believe him. I went to YouTube to pull up each respective song, prepared to retreat safely and stubbornly into what I already knew: that our hands were meant to “stay there,” and that multiple “ooh wee”s punctuated “Buy U a Drank.” But, as clear as a vodka cocktail, I heard “And they say yeah” sandwiched in between two “And they stay theres,” and in “Buy U a Drank,” the sharp t of a “then” when I expected to hear a “wee.” So yes, unfortunately, T-Pain is right about his own music.
Listen for yourselves:
