Kendrick Lamar - Swimming Pools (Drank) Extended Version Lyrics




Pour up (Drank)
Head shot (Drank)
Sit down (Drank)
Stand up (Drank)
Pass out (Drank)
Wake up (Drank)
Faded (Drank)
Faded (Drank)

Now, I done grew up round some people livin' their life in bottles
Granddaddy had the golden flask, backstroke every day in Chicago
Some people like the way it feel, some people wanna kill their sorrow
Some people wanna fit in with the popular, that was my problem
I was in a dark room, loud tunes, lookin' to make a vow soon
That "I'ma get f*cked up," fillin' up my cup, I see the crowd mood
Changin' by the minute and the record on repeat
Took a sip, then another sip, then somebody said to me

"Nigga, why you babysittin' only two or three shots?
I'ma show you how to turn it up a notch"
First, you get a swimming pool full of liquor, then you dive in it
Pool full of liquor, then you dive in it
Then, I wave a few bottles, then I watch 'em all flock
All the girls wanna play Baywatch
I got a swimming pool full of liquor and they dive in it
Po-Pool full of liquor, I'ma dive in it

Pour up (Drank)
Head shot (Drank)
Sit down (Drank)
Stand up (Drank)
Pass out (Drank)
Wake up (Drank)
Faded (Drank)
Faded (Drank)

Okay, now open your mind up and listen me, Kendrick
I am your conscience, if you do not hear me then you will be history, Kendrick
I know that you're nauseous right now and I'm hopin' to lead you to victory, Kendrick
If I take another one down, I'ma drown in some poison, abusin' my limit
I think that I'm feelin' the vibe, I see the love in her eyes
I see the feelin', the freedom is granted as soon as the damage of vodka arrived
This how you capitalize, this is parental advised, and apparently, I'm over-influenced
By what you are doin', I thought I was doin' the most 'til someone said to me

"Nigga, why you babysittin' only two or three shots?
I'ma show you how to turn it up a notch"
First, you get a swimming pool full of liquor, then you dive in it
Pool full of liquor, then you dive in it
And I wave a few bottles, then I watch 'em all flock
All the girls wanna play Baywatch
I got a swimming pool full of liquor and they dive in it
Po-Pool full of liquor, I'ma dive in it

Pour up (Drank)
Head shot (Drank)
Sit down (Drank)
Stand up (Drank)
Pass out (Drank)
Wake up (Drank)
Faded (Drank)
Faded (Drank)

I ride, you ride, bang
One chopper, one hundred shots, bang
Hop out, do you bang?
Two chopper, two hundred shots, bang
I ride, you ride, bang
One chopper, one hundred shots, bang
Hop out, do you bang?
Two chopper, two hundred shots, bang

Nigga, why you babysittin' only two or three shots?
I'ma show you how to turn it up a notch
First, you get a swimming pool full of liquor, then you dive in it
Pool full of liquor, then you dive in it
I wave a few bottles, then I watch 'em all flock
All the girls wanna play Baywatch
I got a swimming pool full of liquor and they dive in it
Po-Pool full of liquor, I'ma dive in it

Pour up (Drank)
Head shot (Drank)
Sit down (Drank)
Stand up (Drank)
Pass out (Drank)
Wake up (Drank)
Faded (Drank)
Faded (Drank)

Sherane
Sherane
(Pool, Kendrick, Kendrick, lies in it, in, in, in)
Sherane, Sherane
(W-watch 'em all flock) Aw man
Sherane (Girls wanna play-play-play)
Where is she takin' me? (I got)
Where is she takin' me? (Pool full of liquor, I'ma die in it)

All I—all I—all I—
All I have in life is my new appetite for failure
And I got hunger pain that grow insane, tell me, do that sound familiar?
If it do, then you're like me, makin' excuse that your relief
Is in the bottom of a bottle and the greenest indo leaf
As the window open I release everything that corrode inside of me
I see you jokin', why you laugh? Don't you feel bad? I prob'ly sleep
And never ever wake up, never ever wake up, never ever wake up
In God I trust, but just when I thought I had enough

[Spoken Outro]
"They stomped the homie out over a bitch?
K-Dot, you good, blood?
Now we can drop, yeah, we can drop you back off"
"That nigga's straight, man, that nigga ain't trippin'"
"We gon' do the same ol' shit
I'ma pop a few shots, they gon' ru—they gon' run opposite way
Fall right in ****'s lap
And he gon' tear they ass up, simple as that"
"And I hope that bitch that set him up, out there
We gon' pop that bitch too"
"Wait hold up, ayy, I see some of 'em"
*Gunshots*
"Aha! Got them niggas, K-Dot, you good?"
"L****, you good?"
"Yeah, blood, I'm good - D******, you good?
D*****? D*****? Say somethin' - D*****?
These bitch-ass niggas killed my brother!"

Kendrick Lamar - Swimming Pools (Drank) Extended Version Video
(Show video at the top of the page)


On this lead single from good kid, m.A.A.d city, Kendrick addresses the psychological connection between peer pressure and alcoholism. What sounds like a club anthem is actually an introspective take on the social pressure and self-defeating attitudes that drive people to drink.

The theme of swimming in pools as a metaphor for drinking and alcoholism could be a reference to the 1964 short story "The Swimmer” by author John Cheever.

K-Dot spoke to Complex about the inspiration behind this song:

What better way to make something universal than to speak about drinking? I'm coming from a household where you had to make a decision—you were either a casual drinker or you were a drunk. That's what that record is really about, me experiencing that as a kid and making my own decisions.
Performed By: Kendrick Lamar
Released: April 2nd, 2013
Year: 2013
