T-Pain’s “Buy U A Drank” & Eight Other Lyrics You Thought You Knew

This week, T-Pain inadvertently ruined the childhoods of many millennials when he shared the lyrics behind his biggest hits.

The singer dropped the news Tuesday (Nov. 28) by first sharing the misconceptions about the 07′ hit, “Buy U A Drank.”  “It’s ‘and then’ not ‘ooh wee’ but really it’s whatever you want it to be,” he tweeted.

The flub comes at the chorus, where many fans believed the singer sang, “I’mma buy you a drank/ooh wee I’mma take you home with me” but in reality, he was singing, “I’mma buy you a drank/And then I’mma take you home with me.”

He also dropped another tidbit, this time with the Obama-favorite jam, “All I Do Is Win.”

“I don’t wanna throw another wrench in your childhood but also it’s ‘Everybody hands go UP………and they stay there……….AND THEY SAY YEAH’ sorry #AlliDoIsWin I’m from #Tallahassee bro. That’s just how some of us talk,” he tweeted.
