T-Pain delivered hit after hit during the late 2000’s. His unique sound and catchy hooks propelled him to the top of the charts, but he recently revealed that we’ve been singing two of his songs wrong for the last decade.
The OBLiViON crooner took to Twitter sharing the real lyrics to his Billboard chart topping single, “Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin). Devastating fans all around the web, T-Pain wrote, ”It’s “and then” not “ooh wee.”
He didn’t stop there. T-Pain went on to clear up the lyrics to the DJ Khaled led single, “All I Do Is Win.” “I don’t wanna throw another wrench in your childhood but also it’s “Everybody hands go UP……… and they stay there……… AND THEY SAY YEAH,” he wrote.
I don’t wanna throw another wrench in your childhood but also it’s “Everybody hands go UP......... and they stay there....... AND THEY SAY YEAH” sorry 😐 #AlliDoIsWin I’m from #Tallahassee bro. That’s just how some of us talk.— T-Pain (@TPAIN) November 29, 2017
Offering up an explanation into the mix up, T-Pain added, “I’m from #Tallahassee bro. That’s just how some of us talk.”
Twitter blew up with fans stunned by T-Pain’s big reveal.

Do you know how many years Mary J Blige let us think it was "dancery" and not "dance soiree"?
Others weren’t as willing to accept the change.
