Hey there!

I really need your help guys. In the song from the topic's title there are a few parts that are not included in official lyrics:
1) 0:46 - 1:14
2) 2:20 - 2:51

I don't know if it's some kind of dialect or something. Is it even English?

Could I get your help with making a transcription of these parts?

Thanks!

There are only a few lyrics repeated in a loop, and the sections from 1.02-1.05 and 2.35-2.51 are chopped up versions of the same loop. I think I hear the words 'jukebox' and 'girlfriend' and 'careful', and a phrase beginning 'no matter what dem...'
