Lyrics Edit

[Intro]

Mhm, yeah

Ooh, ooh, (yeah)

Boy, yeah, I got my own

Boy, oh, oh, oh

[Verse One]

Bitches in the house up

If I cared

I' would've given a fuck

Hella equalist, get out if ya disagree

[Pre- Chorus]

Oh you know you got your own

Just like I got my own

Boy, you know I got my own

Oh, our own

[Chorus]

Everyone's in the gardens

Ain't no more hate

Boys and girls in the gardens

'Cause we are our own guardians

(Ooh, ooh) Yeah, in the gardens

[Verse 2]

Does it really matter if the next person ain't the same?

No it doesn't, not in this house

Seriously, I wouldn't care if the next man is gay

Yeah, mmm, yeah, ooh

[Pre-Chorus]

Oh you know you got your own

Just like I got my own

Boy, you know I got my own

Oh, our own

[Chorus]

Everyone's in the gardens

Ain't no more hate

Boys and girls in the gardens

'Cause we are our own guardians

(Ooh, ooh) Yeah, in the gardens

[Bridge]

Gender, sexuality, does it really even matter

Nah, not in this house at least

Yeah, mhm,

Not in my gardens

[Chorus]

Everyone's in the gardens

Ain't no more hate

Boys and girls in the gardens

'Cause we are our own guardians

(Ooh, ooh) Yeah, in the gardens
