Bootsy Collins – Worth My While (feat. Kali Uchis)

[Intro: Kali Uchis & older woman]
Bootsy had something to do with it?
He had everything to do with it and you’d be surprised. He had a lot to do with a whole lot of my friends falling in love and getting married
Why you say that?
Because we listened to his music all the time whenever we thought we was finna argue. Throw on a little Bootsy, you forget about all that

[Verse 1: Bootsy Collins]
Oh
This is the school for fools in love
Did I mention? Pay attention
Another 40 days, 40 nights
I gotta get my love life right
I’d just like to say
Welcome to my Milkyway, baby
And you better believe there’s a heartbreakin’ every day
Oh, ain’t nothin’ wrong with having fun
Unless you ain’t give none, baby
And that brings us to this occasion
True lover’s dedication
Now, talk to me, baby

[Chorus: Kali Uchis & Bootsy Collins]
Can you make it worth my while?
Go on and show me, babe
Can you make it worth my while?
Uh, I certainly can
Yeah, I think that change is about to come, baby
Watch me, now
Come on, make it worth my while
It’s been a long time
Go on and lead the way
But I think I’m ready, baby
Come on, make it worth my while
Just explain what you mean, baby

[Verse 2: Kali Uchis & Bootsy Collins]
When I’m with him all I ever do
What you talkin’ about?
Is reminisce over you
In funk we trust, who else been on my bus?
I close my eyes, try to think it through
What you know, I’m stuck to you like glue
Oh, oh, oh
Now that’s some unsportsmanlike conduct, babe

[Chorus: Kali Uchis & Bootsy Collins]
Can you make it worth my while?
Go on and show me, babe
Can you make it worth my while?
Uh, I certainly can
Yeah, I think that change is about to come, baby
Watch me, now
Come on, make it worth my while
It’s been a long time
Go on and lead the way
But I think I’m ready, baby
Come on, make it worth my while
My dearly baby, I got something to say

[Verse 3: Bootsy Collins]
What I’d like to say to you
Is, girl, you know that I love you too
And if you turn and walk away
Ah, I’m not even a dog, I’m just a stray, babe
But what I’d like to say would be
And I didn’t mean any harm)
I need your love and honesty
And I didn’t wanna do you no wrong)
I thought I made a little house a home
And now I’m so alone
Now, that’s some unsportsmanlike conduct
Oh no, the trickle-down effect, baby
Sometimes the pain hurts more than it hurts you, baby girl
Now check this out, baby
What I’d like to do with you
Oh, any man, would wanna do
And that’s hold you in my arms and let life live on
Let’s hold you in my arms and let life live on

[Chorus: Kali Uchis & Bootsy Collins]
Listen while I recite oral history, baby
Can you make it worth my while?
Go on and show me, babe
Can you make it worth my while?
What you mean it’s a dream
Come on, make it worth my while
This is Brother Nature calling
Go on and lead the way
Yeah
Come on, make it worth my while
From the west side of the wing of Heaven, baby

[Outro: Bootsy Collins]
I’m virtually nothing
Yeah
And you’re always a new adventure in my world, baby
He’s the [?] and I’m the [?]
Wherever you look around, I’m on display
They call me Brother Nature
Like a book with no pages
I came from the west wing with nothing
