Real Quick

I have something to say so I'm just gon' say it real quick
I know about them, all of them.
The girl from Virginia who just moved here...
... we went to the mall the other day, she talked about you a lot.
The girl that holds your contraband....
... she asked me to teach her to cook, her cornbread gon' be aiight.
The girl that drives that red SUV...
... she calls me every 3 days or so, she thinks you and her could work.
The one that your boys said looks like A-Keys...
... she wants me to give her voice lessons, she can't sing though.
And the one that you said you loved, that one that takes care of you...
... she told me to tell you bye.
