B.o.B – Put Me On (Reebok Classic Remix ’09)

When I wake up from a full night of sleep
I put my best foot forward indeed
And as the colors begin to sing
They seem to say to me “Come On”
You gotta put me on (4x)

Ever since I first arrived here
I’ve been on the run like an eye tear
And it took me a while to get my life steered
But now I’m in the moment, while I reside here
Yup, that’s why I coordinate with my gear
So you can feel the feng shui as soon as I’m near
Yeah, and people have the nerve to say that I’m weird
But you just in a box, so get your mind cleared
Yeah, yeah, that good music man we got it here
So we can get the vibe high like a light gear
Or maybe, fly high like five deer
Call me Santa Claus, when I come through I gotta put ‘em on

When I wake up from a full night of sleep
I put my best foot forward indeed
And as the colors begin to sing
They seem to say to me “Come On”
You gotta put me on (4x)

Well ever since I was eleven
I have found heaven in my self expression
Huh, no, my childhood I never left it
Yes, I’m still a big kid though I never stress it
Yet, memory is evanescent
So I make moves with a special method
That allow my dreams to be manifested
So you’re past the promised land, no I can’t accept it
This life I live is a very blessed one
So, that’s why fans have many questions
Yet, I still leave many guessing
I’m an artist, so I gotta have a bad collection
I put ‘em on

When I wake up from a full night of sleep
I put my best foot forward indeed
And as the colors begin to sing
They seem to say to me “Come On”
You gotta put me on (4x)

Behind the Scenes of the Video:

Reebok did good with this one. Whoever it was that chose to remake A Tribe Called Quest’s Bonita Applebum with B.O.B as the artist should get a raise…. because the video actually makes me want to buy a pair :-) Two Thumbs up Reebok.
Don’t you just love how this song makes you feel so relaxed, great music for a Friday. As I listen to the song I keep thinking “Bonita Applebum you gotta put me on, bonita applebum I said you gotta put me on, Bonita Applebum you gotta put me on, bonita applebum I said you gotta put me on bonita bonita bonita bonita”. lol- gotta love late 80s/early 90s hip hop… and I think A Tribe Called Quest sampled this song from Stevie Wonder, not sure which song though.
