MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)

[Verse 1]
I caught it bad just today
You hit me with a call to your place
Ain't been out in a while anyway
Was hopin' I could catch you throwin' smiles in my face
Romantic talkin'? You don't even have to try
You're cute enough to fuck with me tonight
Lookin' at the table, all I see is weed and white
Baby, you livin' the life, but nigga, you ain't livin' right
 
[Pre-Chorus]
Cocaine and drinkin' with your friends
You live in the dark, boy, I cannot pretend
I'm not phased, only here to sin
If Eve ain't in your garden, you know that you can
 
[Chorus]
Call me when you want, call me when you need
Call me in the morning, I'll be on the way
Call me when you want, call me when you need
Call me out by your name, I'll be on the way like
 
[Post-Chorus]
Mmm, mmm, mmm
Mmm, mmm, mmm
 
[Verse 2]
Ayy, ayy
I wanna sell what you're buyin'
I wanna feel on your ass in Hawaii
I want that jet lag from fuckin' and flyin'
Shoot a child in your mouth while I'm ridin'
Oh, oh, oh, why me?
A sign of the times every time that I speak
A dime and a nine, it was mine every week
What a time, an incline, God was shinin' on me
Now I can't leave
And now I'm actin' hella elite
Never want the niggas that's in my league
I wanna fuck the ones I envy, I envy
 
[Pre-Chorus]
Cocaine and drinkin' with your friends
You live in the dark, boy, I cannot pretend
I'm not phased, only here to sin
If Eve ain't in your garden, you know that you can
 
[Chorus]
Call me when you want, call me when you need
Call me in the morning, I'll be on the way
Call me when you want, call me when you need
Call me out by your name, I'll be on the way like
 
[Post-Chorus]
Oh, call me by your name (Mmm, mmm, mmm)
Tell me you love me in private
Call me by your name (Mmm, mmm, mmm)
I do not care if you lyin'
 
  • Baby, you livin' the life, but nigga, you ...:

    The other man is living a life of luxury (weed and wine being at the table, two very expensive things, as well as being able to drink and do cocaine with his friends), but is still closeted. Though he is “living the life”, he isn’t living his truth as being attracted to other men.

    This line could also be interpreted as Lil Nas X confidently believing that he is the right partner for the other man, and that the man isn’t “living right” until they’re together.

  • only here to sin If Eve ain't in your garden...:

    Referring to homosexuality which is supposed to be a sin in Christianity.

  • Shoot a child in your mouth while I'm ...:

    Lil Nas X is “riding” his partner while facing them during intercourse. He notes the action of “shoot[ing] a child” into his partner’s mouth, a euphemism for ejaculating into the other man’s mouth.

  • A dime and a nine, it was mine every week:

    A “dime and nine” is equal to 19, which refers to the record-setting nineteen weeks Old Town Road was No. 1 on the Top 100 charts. No. 1 was his spot every week, and his growth in popularity was on an “incline”.

  • Tell me you love me in private:

    The guy that Lil Nas has a crush on is closeted/ashamed, and is afraid to say he has feelings for him publicly.

  • God was shinin' on me:

    God has his back that's why he's so lucky

Obrigado!
