John Legend Penthouse Floor Lyrics

[John Legend:]

All this trouble in this here town

All this shit going down

When will they focus, on this

Streets ride up with the TV crews

Look ma, we on the news

But they didn’t notice

Before this

They float above the city lights

Forget the truth inhale the lies

Just enjoy the show

They see us reaching for the sky

Just ignore them to survive

Maybe we should go

Go to the penthouse floor (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)

Go to the penthouse floor (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)

Let’s ride the elevator, they can’t keep us out no more

Go to the penthouse floor (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)

Penthouse floor

All that bubbly all that wine

Oh man look at the times

Didn’t they notice, notice

Only future I can see, ain’t what it used to be

And I didn’t know this, I didn’t know this

Once you’re above the city lights

Won’t want to spend another night, down there on your own

The holding on is made for us

The altitude is dangerous, but we ain’t going home

Go to the penthouse floor (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)

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

Can’t keep us out no more (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)

[Chance The Rapper:]

I heard this old joke once, it was like uh knock knock, who’s there, it’s us, who’s us?

Just us, who dis? Just playin’

Just me, new phone, new hair, new era

I’m in the penthouse baby

Handpicked from bad apples and bad eggs

Held back, I had to grab crab legs

And then there were only but a few

Conversations held with patience, what a party what a view

What a dress, what a song

What a beautiful time

My folks still downstairs waiting in line

They never been in these rooms

They never stayed with these folks

Never laughed at the news, never hated these jokes

So was I fly in my suit, in a group, on the cover

Forcing a smile, then he tells me another

He said what happened to the boy that climbed in the trunk

He pushed me off the top he said “Jump nigga jump!”

[John Legend:]

Oh don’t bring me down I need a room in the clouds

I wanna get there babe, I wanna elevate

Oh my favourite mix

A little ignorance and bliss

In the penthouse babe, go to the penthouse

Go to the penthouse floor (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)

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

We’ll tear down those penthouse doors (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)

Those penthouse doors

We’ll tear down the penthouse doors (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)

Baby, I’m in the penthouse floor

Baby, let’s ride the elevator

Til we can rise some more

Go to the penthouse floor, penthouse floor (let’s go let’s go let’s go)
