"Waking Up Gucci On My PJs" Lyrics

Waking up, Gucci on my PJs
You know what's up, gonna be a good day

Radio got Tydus on replay
Balling in the hall with the Brand new J’s

Baby caught my eye
Looking so fine
Gotta make a move
Gotta make it smooth

Despite the song's 2019 origin, Tydus' "First Girlfriend" didn't become an established meme trend until early 2023 when reposts of the music video's opening landed on TikTok. This started with a video uploaded on March 5th, 2023, by TikToker[2] @darth_vaden1 who proclaimed in text overlay, "Yo this song is fire 🔥🔥," earning roughly 302,800 likes in 25 days (shown below).
