about

The track is a self-produced culmination--an array of all JDVBBS’ talents: writing, composing, arranging and performing the song. The result is a pop hit/club banger/r&b solo all in one.

lyrics

[Intro]
I know you know how good you look girl
(You done checked yourself in the compact like 100 times. Come on!)
I know you know how good you look girl
(Taking selfies in the bathroom. Let's get it)

[Verse 1]
Girl, how long it take you to get ready tonight (ready tonight)
Imma be honest for a second ain't no other girl gon' put up a fight (put up a fight)
And you got your hair all done up
Fingers toes and that makeup
From your head to your feet, girl you know you gotta do it right

[Pre-Chorus]
So you drop by sephora to work on your aura
You get your brushes right and your colors in order
You go to the mirror just to check yourself in the frame

[Chorus]
I love the way you look when you put on that war paint
Girl you extra sexy when you rockin' that war paint
Looking really good when you wear that war paint
Everybody stares when you got on that war paint
I love the way you look when you put on that war paint

[Verse 2]
Girls go to battle without it all the time (whatever I like barely have any makeup on)
Just a little bit of gloss, girl that's all you need to look so fine
Got them lips by MAC, cherry red, purple smacked. Candy coated
And the way that you apply lie you the baddest bitch alive and you know it

[Pre-Chorus]
So you drop by sephora to work on your aura
You get your brushes right and your colors in order
You go to the mirror just to check yourself in the frame

[Chorus]
I love the way you look when you put on that war paint
Girl you extra sexy when you rockin' that war paint
Looking really good when you wear that war paint
Everybody stares when you got on that war paint
I love the way you look when you put on that war paint

[Bridge]
I know you know how good you look girl
(You been tryna get me to get you a drink since you walked in here. Don't think I ain't notice)
I know you know how good you look girl
(For real though, we goin' to war tonight baby)

[Rap]
You got that easy breezy beautiful style
Love it when you show me that cover girl smile
No other girl quite got it on a ten
I'm saying maybe she was born with it
Well at least that's the way it seems, maybe she was
Or maybe that Maybeline did what it does
Anyway what it do, baby boo ain't no need for searchin' for
Another girl
That's just because you're worth it
Imma try to build that foundation
Lay it on thick that's the game I'm playing
I know you want it too but you tryna conceal it
Gimme a little time honey imma reveal it
The way your eyes shadow me cuz I'm the realest
Hating on them other girls who interfere with it
Girl I'm feeling it, tryna knock your socks off
And when you wake up then you can wash off that war paint

[Vamp]
You know I love it know I love it know I love it girl
You know I love it know I love it know I love it girl
That war paint. That war paint girl
That war paint. That war paint girl
I'm lovin' that war paint. I'm lovin' that war paint girl
I'm lovin' that war paint. I'm lovin' that war paint girl

[Chorus]
I love the way you look when you put on that war paint
Girl you extra sexy when you rocking that war paint
Looking really good when you wear that war paint
Everybody stares when you got on that war paint
I love the way you look when you put on that war paint
Girl you extra sexy when you rocking that war paint
Looking really good when you wear that war paint
Everybody stares when you got on that war paint
I love the way you look when you put on that war paint
