Rapper debuts new song with Pusha T at the VMAs.

[artist id="1230523"]Kanye West[/artist] closed out the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night, debuting a new song, “Runaway,” which will be on his yet-untitled next album. A lot of lyrics flew by during the performance, between West’s words and Pusha T’s verse, so we decided to bring you the rhymes as best as we could. Let us know what you think about the new song in the comments!

(Kanye)

And I always find, yeah, I always find something wrong
You been putting up with my sh– just way too long
I’m so gifted at finding what I don’t like the most
So I think its time for us to have a toast

Let’s have a toast for the douche bags!
Let’s have a toast for the a–holes!
Let’s have a toast for the scumbags!
Every one of them that I know
Let’s have a toast for the jerk-offs
That’ll never take work off
Baby, I got a plan
Run away fast as you can

She find pictures in my e-mail
I sent this girl a picture of my, hey!
I don’t know what it is with females
But I’m not too good with that, hey!
See, I could have me a good girl
And still be addicted to them hood rats
And I just blame everything on you
At least you know that’s what I’m good at

See, I always find
And I always find
Yeah, I always find something wrong
You been putting up with my sh– just way too long
I’m so gifted at finding what I don’t like the most
So I think it’s time for us to have a toast

Let’s have a toast for the douche bags!
Let’s have a toast for the a–holes!
Let’s have a toast for the scumbags!
Every one of them that I know
Let’s have a toast for the jerk-offs
That’ll never take work off
Baby, I got a plan
Run away fast as you can

R-r-ru-ru-ru-run away
Run away from me, baby
(Look at, look at, look at, look at you)
Run away from me, baby
(Look at you, look at you, look at you)
Run away
Run away from me, baby

(Pusha T)

24/7, 365, Jenny stays on my mind
I-I-I-I did it, all right, all right, I admit it
Now pick your best move, you could leave or live with it
Ichabod Crane with that Lamborghini top off
Split and go where? Back to wearing knockoffs, huh?
Knock it off, Neimans, shop it off
Let’s talk over mai tais, waitress, top it off
(Mother——s) Wanna fly in your Freddy loafers
You can’t blame ‘em, they ain’t never seen Versace sofas
Every bag, every blouse, every bracelet
Comes with a price tag, baby, face it
You should leave if you can’t accept the basics
Plenty bitches in the baller-players’ matrix
Invisibly set, the Rolex is faceless
I’m just young, rich and tasteless
P!

(Kanye)

Oh, I haven’t f—ed up in so long
You been putting up with my sh– just way too long
I’m so gifted at finding what I don’t like the most
So I think it’s time for us to have a toast
(Ladies and gentlemen!)
Yeah, I always find something so wrong
You been putting up with my sh– just way too long
I’m so gifted at finding what I don’t like the most
So I think it’s time for us to have a toast

Let’s have a toast for the douche bags!
Let’s have a toast for the a–holes!
Let’s have a toast for the scumbags!
Every one of them that I know
Let’s have a toast for the jerk-offs
That’ll never take work off
Baby, I got a plan
Run away fast as you can
