John Legend – Penthouse Floor (feat. Chance The Rapper)

Go to the penthouse floor (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)
They float above the city lights
Go to the penthouse floor (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)
Held back, I had to grab crab legs
Baby, let’s ride the elevator
Go to the penthouse floor (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)
When will they focus, on this
[Bridge: John Legend]
My folks downstairs still waiting in line
Go to the penthouse floor, penthouse floor (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)
And then there were only but a few
A little ignorance and bliss
He said "What happened to the boy that climbed up the trunk?"
Conversations held with patience, what a party, what a view
Knock knock, who’s there, it’s us, us who?
We’ll tear down those penthouse doors (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)
Forcing a new smile, he tells me another

Those penthouse doors

Oh don’t bring me down I need a room in the clouds
[Chorus: John Legend]

[Chorus: John Legend]
Streets ride up with the TV crews
Look ma, we on the news
Maybe we should go
Oh my favourite mix
Handpicked from bad apples and bad eggs
Just me, new phone, new hair, new era
[Verse 1: John Legend]
Only future I can see, ain’t what it used to be
Just ignore the [?] survive
Won’t want to spend another night, down there on your own
Go to the penthouse floor (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)
Let’s ride the elevator, it’s what we’ve been waiting for
What a beautiful time
Baby, I’m in the penthouse floor
Til we can rise some more
And I didn’t know this, I didn’t know this
They never been in these rooms
Oh man look at the times
Let’s ride the elevator, it’s what we’ve been waiting for
Go to the penthouse floor (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)

Forget the truth inhale the lies
The holding on is made for us
[Verse 2: John Legend]
Just us, who dis? Just playin’
I wanna get there babe, I wanna elevate
Go to the penthouse floor (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)
They see us reaching for the sky
All that bubbly all that wine
Penthouse floor
Never laughed at the news, never hated these jokes
Before this
But they didn’t notice
The altitude is dangerous, but we ain’t going home
All this shit going down
Let’s ride the elevator, they can’t keep us out no more
We’ll tear down the penthouse doors (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)
Just enjoy the show
All this trouble in this here town
Didn’t they notice, notice
[Chorus: John Legend]
Never stayed with these folks

I heard this old joke once, it was like, uh
What a dress, what a song
Then he pushed me off the top and said "Jump, nigga jump!"
Go to the penthouse floor (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)
In the penthouse babe, go to the penthouse
[Verse 3: Chance The Rapper]
Can’t keep us out no more (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)
So as I fly in my suit, in a group, undercover
I’m in the penthouse, baby
Once you’re above the city lights
