Somebody's Somebody

Somebody's somebody
Somewhere, someone
It's 2 o'clock in the morning and I just can't sleep

2night I wanna be somebody's somebody
2night I want somebody that'll do it 'til the job gets done (Oh yeah)

There's a hunger deep inside of me, how the fire burns
I wanna give good love 2 someone and get good love in return, oh
(CHORUS)
Somebody's somebody
Someone
I wanna be somebody's body
Oh yes, oh yeah
Someone 2 hold me in that hour midnight
Someone 2 console me when things ain't goin' 2 right
Someone 2 bring me dinner sometime, yeah (Mine, all mine)
Somebody I can call all mine
It's 2:05 in the morning and I got no one 2 call
I'm longin' 2 hear another voice inside these lonely walls (Lonely walls)
Maybe 2night'll be different (different) than the nights before (Maybe not)
I need 2 feel someone beside me, I cannot be alone no more (No more, no more!)

Damned If I Do

Damned if I do
Tell me what's up with the teenage indecision
I'm mad in love but U won't give me permission
U said, "Be here at 9"
Then scream at me 4 not giving U more time, more time
Damned if I do, damned if I don't
U say U want me 2 love U
But when I try, U won't
Maybe, maybe we should say goodbye
Damned if I do
Tell me the truth, how many U do it 2?
I smell vermouth everytime I don't get 2 kiss U
Enough's enough
If U don't want my lovin', then I'll give up, I'll give up
CHORUS:
Damned if I do, damned if I don't
U say U want me 2 love U
But when I try, U won't
Baby, maybe we should say goodbye
Goodbye
Damned if I don't try 2 make U see yourself the way I do
Open minded, worldly, always ready 4 taboo
Tell me what's up, are we gonna go 2 heaven?
I'll fill your cup, I won't do it like Kevin
CHORUS
Damned if I do, damned if I don't
Baby, maybe we should say goodbye
Maybe we should say, "I do"
Tú siempre estás hablando de lo qué tenemos qué hacer
{U're always speaking about what we should do}
Bueno, tú sabes
{Well, U know}
Pero lo qué tienes qué hacer
{But what U should do}

{Please... eat them all!}
A mi no me apesta la boca!
{My breath doesn't stink!}

I Can't Make U Love Me

Turn down the lights, turn down the bed
Turn down these voices inside my head
Lay down with me, tell me no lies
Just hold me close, don't patronize
Don't patronize me
Cuz I can't make U love me if U don't
I can't make your heart feel something it won't
Here in the dark, in these final hours
I will lay down my heart (my heart) and I'll feel the power
But U won't, no, U won't
Cuz I can't make U love me if U don't
Do U?
Do U love me?
Look at me
I'll close my eyes, then I won't see
The love U don't feel, when U're holding me (Hold me)
Morning will come and I'll do what's right (Do it right {x2})
Just give me 'til then 2 give up this fight
And I will, I will give up this fight
Oh, yes I will
Cuz I can't make U love me if U don't
I can't make your heart feel something it won't
Ah, don't U know here in the dark, in the dark baby, these final hours (Here in the dark)
I will lay down my heart (my heart) and I'll feel the power, oh yes I will
But U won't
Tell me why, tell me why U don't?
(I can't make U love me if U don't)
Come here, baby
(I can't make your heart feel something it won't)
Talk 2 me, tell me where U wanna be kissed
Talk 2 me, tell me how U want me 2 do this
In this bedroom/church, U can guess the offering
I offer U (My heart)
I offer U sexual relations (But U won't)
But U won't (U won't)
Tell me what's up baby?
Am I moving 2 fast?
Not only do I wanna be the first, I wanna be the last, the last
Is that so bad?
I.. I want 2.. U know
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna make U love me
(Do U love me?)
Come on baby, U can take it (My heart) (Come on and take it)
It's real love - I wanna make it (I wanna)
But U won't love me, love me (But U won't)
U won't love me, baby
What's a man 2 do?
What is this man gonna do?
I can't make U love me if U don't
I want U 2 (love me) love me
I need U 2 (kiss me, yeah)
Oh darlin' (Love me)
Love me {x5}
Turn down the lights, turn down the bed
Turn down these voices inside my head
Lay down with me, tell me no lies

Comin' from the midwest passin' every test with a fuzztone remote control
CHORUS {x2}
(Yeah)
(Come on)
Yeah, one, well
I'll make your love come down like a freakin' elevator
In the middle of the night, body vibratin' like a pager
U play the drink, baby, I'll play the chaser
Do I love U? I can't love U cuz I hate cha
See, U got this bad case of the sad face
Dinner at 8, then intercourse at my place
Keep the drapes open, VCR, the whole bit
I know it sound sick, but baby, let's make a flick
Mr. Happy, babydoll, I came 2 do damage (I will take care of U)
Rock your world, knock your brain 2 another planet
U know my north pole can generate heat
Been thinkin' about me? Hmm, I can see them stains in your sheets
Before the reputation, they all used 2 pass me (I will take care of U)
Yeah?
Now they stop 2 ask me
4 real?
Straight up, the lifestyle of Mr. Happy
Yeah
Oh, I will take care of U
Whatever U want, I do it right, oh

(Yeah)

In This Bed I Screem

2 these walls I talk
Tellin' 'em what I wasn't strong enough 2 say
2 these walls I talk
Tellin' 'em how I cried the day U went away
How do we ever lose communication?
How do we ever lose each other's sound?
Baby, if U wanna, we can fix the situation
Maybe we can stop the rain from coming down
Yeah
In this bed I scream
Lonely nights I lay awake thinking of U
And if I'm cursed with a dream
A thousand times I feel whatever I've put U through
Tell me, how're we gonna put this back 2gether?
How're we gonna think with the same mind?
Knowing all along that life is so much better
Living and loving 2gether all the time
Living and loving
In this bed I, in this bed I, in this bed I scream
In this car I drive
I'm looking 4 the road that leads back 2 the soul we shared
With my very life
I'd gladly be the body upon the cross we bear (Cross we bear)
How do we ever lose communication? (How did we?)
How do we ever lose each other's sound? (I don't know)
Baby, if U wanna, we can fix the situation
Maybe we can stop the rain from coming down
Maybe we can't, maybe we can
Stop the rain, stop the rain
In this bed I, in this bed I, in this bed I scream
I scream
In this bed I scream

(CHORUS)

Your lips, up and down your back and every single hair
It all makes up the beauty of your grand design
Every man has got a duty, and 2night I want 2 do mine
(Oh, I see) Oh, I see this is what U wanted
One kiss at a time
(I got 2 be) I got 2 be up on it, yeah
If I want 2 make U mine
This is something every man should see
Give your woman what she wants and give her what she needs
(What she needs {x3})
Ask her in a whisper that only 2 can hear
What can I do, what can I say, baby? Forget your every single fear
Slowly I pull your strap down and touch U as if 2 heal (heal)
Layer by layer, inch by inch, until your true love is revealed
Oh, I see, ooh, this is what U wanted, baby
One kiss at a time
I got 2 be, I got 2 be up on it
If I want 2 make U mine
If every man could love their woman the way that I love U
Time would stop and the sky would fall
And all could see the glory of what true love can bring
That's what I sing
Oh, I see
(Oh, I see) Mmm, this is what U wanted
One kiss at a time
I got 2 be on my knees, I.. I.. I.. I gotta please
If I want 2 make U mine
Only, only, only way 2 get your come on, all night long
One kiss at a time (And I know that's right)
(I gotta stay) I gotta stay, [good and long] (Now come on)
On this Valentine
Come on (Come and get your come on)
Get your come on, baby
One kiss at a time
Come on, baby, let's get this on
One kiss at a time
Uh huh, yeah
One kiss at a time {x2}

Soul Sanctuary

Loving U in silence, knowing that it's right
Under your gaze I ponder this love 2night
Unbothered by the chaos swirling 'round outside
In your arms is where I want 2 live and die
Someplace where your face is all that I see
Where the love we make intoxicates intensively
In a mirror where your sweet reflection used 2 be
There is hope, there is joy, my soul sanctuary
My soul sanctuary
Loving U in silence, neverending kiss
Under your gaze I can peacefully exist
Sanctuary, baby, nothing compares 2 this
In my darkest hour U can be my bliss (Bliss)
All of me I give 2 thee down at your feet
The reassurance in your rhythm speaks 2 me
Over and over your screams are like a prayer
In the dark, U are there (U are there), my soul sanctuary
Ooh, my soul sanctuary
Loving U in passion unmolested in this garden
Mango and nectarine, sweet honeydew, I beg your pardon
My mouth runneth over from ecstasy
It's true (it's true), baby, I love the taste of U
Loving U in silence, knowing that it's right
Under your gaze I ponder this love 2night
Unbothered by the chaos swirling around outside
In your arms is where I wanna live and die
Someplace (someplace) where your face is all that I see (All that I see)
Where the love we make intoxicates intensively (Intensively)
In a mirror (mirror) where your sweet (sweet) reflections used 2 be
There is hope, there is joy, my soul sanctuary
My soul sanctuary
(My, my, my, my, my soul) My soul sanctuary
Oh, my soul sanctuary
Soul sanctuary

Emale

Ooh aah ooh {x2}
The emale left so clearly upon a computer screen
Read like a threat that crept into her like a sex machine
Wanted: Any woman who's first name begins with a "Z"
From the sound of the keys, a pawn makes a move
Her reply brings on the groove
www.emale.com
The king takes the pawn
www.emale.com
It's on, it's on, it's on!
He couldn't wait 2 tell her 'til after he got the nella
Her love would only even the score
It seemed her darling fella
He stole a hellalotta bucks from the corner store
The declaration of war that followed
She never believed, oh
In the darkest corners where widows mourn
That's where he whispered her name
He said, "We can do it here, my dear
But I fear your tears will fall like rain"
They fall like...
"Because I must tell U (Tell U)
While I'm deep in your smell
U got the man I want 2 inflict with pain
I'm running a game with my paper
I'm turning the boy 2 vapor
Now I wanna do the same 2 U
If U don't tattoo my name upon your train"
www.emale.com (Oh, the king takes the pawn)
The king takes the pawn (Oh)
www.emale.com
It's on, it's on, it's on! (It's on, it's on)
www.emale.com
The king takes the pawn
www.emale.com (www)
It's on, it's on, it's on! (I said it's on, it's on, it's on)
It's on

Curious Child

In a room full of harlots and fantasy
Destiny beckoned us there
Curious child on the balcony
We took the dare
Careless I was 2 caress thee
Yet never regretting the time
The joy that we shared, it was meant 2 be
And not a crime
No, it's not a crime
If memory serves us, we will align
2 the truth that we most often share
Curious child, U are on my mind
Do U care?

Dreamin' About U

If the wind blew every petal from your precious red rose
Would U be afraid of what U'd find inside?
When I'm alone in my room
I can't stop dreaming about U, dreaming about U
When I'm alone in my room
I can't stop dreaming about U, dreaming about U
And every time I do what I need 2 do
I can't stop dreaming about U, dreaming about U
Revolving around every word that is spoken
Like the planets around the sun
I want U
Your tongue is a great persuader
Yeah, U got me sold
And when I'm alone in my room just watching a rose
I dream about U, I dream about U
When I'm alone in my room, yeah
I can't stop dreaming about U
When I'm alone in my room, baby, baby
I can't stop dreaming about U, dreaming about U
And every time I do what I need 2 do
I can't stop dreaming about U, dreaming about U
When my sane twin reigns
Claiming your aim is 2 maim my subconscious into being with U
I dream about U
Betting on the notion that if my lustier twin prevails
Like the ruins of Rome, I'll lie helpless at your feet
Yeah, when I'm alone
I dream about U, I dream about U
I dream about U, baby
When I'm alone in my room
I dream about U, my baby
I dream about U, U, U
(And here we stand)
And here we stand amidst your core (U)
Like the petals on this rose I adore (U)
The inside (The inside)
If the inside is kind
Kind in a sense that one would come from all
And the wish that U wish will come true if U call
But if not, (U will fall) U will fall
And I'll still be alone (Just dreaming about U)
With this ball in my stomach just dreaming about U (Dreaming about U)

Joint 2 Joint

If U wanna we can kick it, baby, joint 2 joint
CHORUS:
(Sex me) - Uh, yeah (safe), joint 2 joint
(Sex me) - Uh, yeah (safe), kick it, baby, joint 2 joint
(Sex me) - Uh, yeah (safe), joint 2 joint
(Sex me) - Uh, yeah
Before I melt the wax 2 quizzical
Let me just say that U are physically
The most toned one I've ever seen
U're making me proud 2 be a human be-i-ng (Uh huh!)
And if we're ever naked in the same machine
I'm gonna lick it, baby, joint 2 joint
CHORUS
So first I need a picture of your mother
2 verify the fact that there's not another
One in the universe so supreme
Damn, U got the rock 2 give a brotha cream (Cream)
And if we're ever naked in the same machine

I'm gonna lick it, baby, joint 2 joint
(Sex me) - Uh, yeah (safe), joint 2 joint
(Sex, sex, sex me) - If U wanna we can kick it, baby, joint 2 joint
(Sex me) - Oh yeah, I got some hot sauce, joint 2 joint (Ha ha ha)
(Sex me) - Said kick it baby, joint 2 joint (Right on, ha ha ha)
(Sex me) - Yeah (safe)
Come upstairs 2 my room
Joint 2 joint (I never sucked...) {x2}
I never sucked sour splints from a chew stick
Don't lick bics cuz fire sticks 2 flame (flame)
Get wicks 2 catch brothers who choose 2 let burns remain
Now I see all Dicks, Toms and Harrys are not the same
Some dipped in my lower lip, sipped a supple poison (poison {x3})
Joint 2 joint (I never sucked...) {x4}
(Come with me, 4 those who wanna change)
(But nothing comes 4 free)
Joint 2 joint, nothing comes 4 free
If U show your love, U can get with me
U can get with me, U can get with me
Joint 2 joint
Up the stairs 2 my lovely room
Stroke your face and U're under soon
Sittin' in the corner in your underwear
Lettin' me caress your nappy hair
Joint 2 joint, nothing comes 4 free
If U show your love, U can get with me
And if U light my candle, we can share the stone
Flames of desire, sweet gypsy moans
Sweet gypsy moans
Joint 2 joint {x3}
Joint 2 joint, nothing comes 4 free
Oh great, now U think U're my soulmate
U don't even know what kind of cereal I like
Wrong! Cap'n Crunch with soy milk
Cuz cows are 4 calves
U'd probably take me 4 half
U don't love me, U're a faker
U just want me 4 my acres
(Na na, na na na na)
Joint 2 joint {x3}
Joint 2 joint, nothing comes 4 free (Sex me)
If U show your love, U can get with me {repeat in a loop}
(Na na, na na na na) (Nothing comes 4 free)
If we're ever naked in the same machine
Baby, we can kick it joint 2 joint
Where 2?

I..I don't know
An..anywhere, just drive
It's me
I'm just drivin'
Listen, I need 2 get with U
No, I mean 4, I mean 4 good
I'm serious this time
Nah, that's all over now, U know it
I front sometimes, but U know, this is as quiet as it's kept...
Listen, I just gotta get outta here, that's all
Let me call U back, alright?
Yeah, yeah, later


The Holy River

Let's go down 2 the holy river
If we drown then we'll be delivered
U can still see the picture upon the wall
One eye staring at nothing at all
The other one trying 2 focus through all your tears
U can try and try but there's nothin' 2 hide
U can't run from yourself and what's inside
U got 2 find the answers 2 the questions that U most fear
So over and over U ask your soul
Why'd U come down 2 a world so cold?
And the voice inside says 2night the truth will be told
U surrounded yourself with all the wrong faces
Spending your time in all the wrong places
Puttin' your faith in things that only make U cry
People say they love U when they wanna help
But how can they when U can't help yourself?
The more they say they love U, the more U just wanna die
So here we go again, the self analysis
Have another glass of Port and uh.. forget this
The band's playin' at the club 2night and they're bound 2 groove
There U are, U think U're high
U can't ask yourself cuz U'd only lie
If U had a dollar 4 every time U tried
U can't call nobody cuz they'll tell U straight up
Come and make love when U really hate 'em
Relationships based on the physical are over and done
They're over and done (They're over and done)
U'd rather have fun
With only one, with only one
Only one... one (one)
And then it hit 'cha like a fist on a wall
Who gave U life when there was none at all?
Who gave the sun permission 2 rise up everyday? (Ooh, oh yes)
Let me tell it (Go'n)
If U ask God 2 love U longer
Every breath U take will make U stronger
Keepin' U happy (happy) and proud 2 call His name (Go'n and say it)
Jesus (Jesus)
And over and over U ask your soul
Why'd U come down 2 a world so cold?
And the voice inside said 2night the truth will be told
And this time I was listening, hear me
Let's go down 2 the holy river
If we drown then we'll be delivered (Yes we will)
If we don't then we'll never see the light (No)
If U die before U try
U'll have 2 come back and face the light (Oh yes)
When U believe it, U got a good reason 2 cry (Oh my, my)
So I went on down 2 the holy river
I called my girl and told her I had something 2 give her
I asked her 2 marry me and she said yes, I cried
Oh, that night I drowned in her tears and mine
And.. and instead of a glass of sorrow and wine
Looking back y'all, I don't miss nothing except the time
And when I see that picture upon the wall
The one eye staring at nothing at all
My eyes trying 2 focus but these are much different tears
Oh, yes they are
Let's go down 2 the holy river {x3}
Let's go down 2 the holy river {x3}

Let's Have A Baby

I can't wait no more, no
Let's have a baby
What are we livin' 4? Tell me
Let's make love, let's make love
So long have I gazed into your eyes
Wonderin' what they'd look like on a newborn child
I cannot lie when my hand is on your thighs
I'm thinking, isn't it a miracle that life comes from inside?
So long I have listened 2 your voice
Wonderin' what it would sound like coming from a girl or a boy
Isn't it funny that when U're truly in love
How just the thought of such things can bring U so much joy?
And I can't wait no more, oh no
Let's have a baby
Oh girl, come and shut the door, go on, shut it
Let's make love
U wanna make love?
I'm leaving it up 2 U
I'll do what U want 2 do
But U got 2 understand
U're my woman and I'm your man
I can't even go 4 a ride
Believe me, honey, I've tried
Without thinking about a little baby
A baby sittin' right by my side
And if anybody in the whole wide world
Ever thought that they could do that 4 me
They are one mistaken girl
Cuz baby, U got me, U got me open, yes U do
And we're doing just fine
If U really love me, baby
If U can find the time
I can't wait no more
Let's have a baby
Don't U wanna?
What are we livin' 4? Tell me, tell me
Let's have a baby
Come on, come on and shut the door, girl
U know what I wanna do
Let's.. let's make love

Saviour

Saviour
How did I ever come this far without U, baby?
What was I thinkin', what was I tryin' 2 be?
Never did U ever give me reason 2 doubt U, baby
U are my destiny and this I truly see

We're like 2 branches from the same tree
Whenever I look in your eyes, I can see a paradise
U're my saviour, U're all I ever need (Saviour)
I used 2 say, no one lover could have me, no one lover
That was before my eyes had seen the light

U're my saviour (saviour), U're the only one that does it right
Can't U see we're like 2 petals from the same flower, baby?
We're like 2 branches from the same tree
Whenever I look in your eyes, I can see a paradise
U're my saviour, U're all I ever need
What would I be without your love around me?
(Oh, what would I be, oh, without your love?)
What would I see, U constantly astound me
(Oh baby, U know U constantly astound me)
Saviour {repeated}
Yeah!
Well, oh!
(Saviour)
Oh, how did I (how did I) come this far
Without U, baby? (without U, baby) I don't know
What was I thinkin' (what was I thinkin')
What was I tryin' 2 be? (I don't know)
But what I do know is that...
(Can't U see we're like) We're like 2 petals from the same flower, baby
We're like 2 branches from the same tree
(2 drops of water from the same sea)
Whenever I look in your eyes, I can see a paradise
U're my saviour, U're all I...
U're my saviour, U're all I ever...
U're my saviour, U're all I ever need (Saviour)
Saviour, U're all I ever need
Saviour, U (I do)
U are my flower, baby (flower)
Ooh, every, every hour (hour)
Oh, yes U are
Won't U come and justa... (Won't U come and justa...)
Rain, I said rain!
(Won't U come and justa...)
Rain, rain, rain!
(...rain some of your sweet love down on me?)
Down on me! {x2}
Saviour! Saviour! Saviour!
Yeah! {repeated}
Down on me!

My friend, lover, sister, mother/wife
Slave CHORUS:
Everybody keeps tryin' 2 break my heart
Everybody except 4 me
I just want a chance 2 play the part
The part of someone truly free
Like candle slowly burning, I can feel my world unravel
Hemisphere upon hemisphere lie beneath my soul, soul
My enemies kept it turning, but now they pound the gavel
And judging me accordingly, I know, I know
CHORUS
Hey! {x3}
Oh
Burning slowly candle, handle careless they did
Merrily down 3 heartbreak boulevards
Like fashion statements, they lie "U be lookin' so good 2night, kid"
I do my best 2 party, it's just that everybody keeps tryin' 2 break my heart
(CHORUS)
Except 4 me (Except 4 me)
I just want a chance 2 play
(Just wanna be free)
Slowly candle burns, where'd they learn hypnosis?
How'd they keep me under 4 so long?
Break the bread I earn, just keep me far from closest
I need their kind 2 illustrate what's wrong - what's wrong?
Well, I'll tell U they just keep tryin' 2 break my heart (CHORUS)
They just keep tryin' 2 break my heart, ow!
(Everybody) {x2}
CHORUS
But I can't let U break my heart
(Everybody keeps tryin' 2 break my heart)
Slave! (Everybody keeps tryin' 2 break my heart)
Slave! Slave! (Everybody keeps tryin' 2 break my heart)
Slave!

New World

New world {x4}
When the sharpest vibration
Saves U from obliteration
The intelligence of your bed reacts
Covering U head 2 toe with an air-filled sack
CHORUS:
When the lines blur every boy and girl
How we gonna make it in this brave new world?
Love 4 one another - New world
Love 4 one another - New world
When U wanna find some isolation
But the tracker U got from vaccination (Keeps playin')
Keeps playin' - "U'll never walk alone" (Over and over)
They're always listening, especially on the phone
CHORUS
Wait a minute
New world
Did U hear about the new pill? It feels like sex!
Guaranteed 2 thrill with no ill side-effects
A pill that will stop the wrinkles, a pill that will stop the pain
A pill that will make a baby never seek political gain
What's it all 4 when U can alter biology?
Who or what, then my friend, will U and I be? {x2}
When the sharpest vibration
Saves U from obliteration
When the melting pot stirs, how U gonna take it?
When U can't tell him from her, how U gonna fake it?
When the lines blur every boy and girl
How U gonna make it in this brave new world?
Love 4 one another - New world
Love 4 one another (How U gonna take it?)

Love 4 one another (How U gonna take it?)

Face down! {x2}
Somebody once told him that he wouldn't take Prince through the ringer
Let him go down as a washed up singer
Ain't that a bitch?
Thinkin' all along that he wanted 2 be rich
Never respected the root of all evil and he still don't 2 this day, huh
Bury him face down, let the motherfuckers kiss a ass, OK?
Face down! {x2}
Told 'em he wanted 2 sing a song about a black child goin' buck wild
And they just laughed in his face
Talk 2 your lawyer but U got no case
What U need 2 do is keep your place
Next time U pull a card, it better be a ace motherfucker
Or U can lay face down (Face down!)
1 2
Face down! 1 2
Horn {x2}
Bass {x2}

And U know what? I seen all those other guys 2
Baby, frankly, I don't give a damn
Many guys have come 2 U
With a line that wasn't true
And U'd pass 'em by (Pass them by)
Though U're in the center ring
And their lines don't mean a thing
Why don't U let me try? (Let me try)

Uh, style
Style is not something that comes in a bottle
Style is more like Jackie O. when she was doin' Aristotle
Style is not a logo that sticks 2 the roof of one's ass
Style is like a second cousin 2 class
U got it! - Style, come on
U got it! - Style, say what?
U got it! - Style, come on
U got it! - Style, check it
Style ain't sittin' court side with the owner of the team
Style is owning the court and charging 'em all a fee
Style is not lusting after someone because they're cool
Style is loving yourself 'til everyone else does 2
U got it! - Style, come on
U got it! - Style, maybe
U got it! - Style, well well
U got it! - Style
Bridge:
Style don't get drunk on a Saturday night
Try 2 dress up every Sunday mornin' bright
Style don't get married then break the vow in a year
Style is keepin' a promise
Raise your hand y'all if U hear me

Style is not biting style when U can't find the funk
Style is the face U make on a Michael Jordon dunk
Style ain't the jeep U bought when U know your broke ass got bills
Style is lettin' your lover drive while U talk on the phone and chill
U got it! - Style
U got it! - Style, maybe
U got it! - Style, come on
U got it! - Style
Bridge:
Style is a gold-tooth smile with an attitude
Style is a peaceful wild postin' the rude
Style is growing your own food
Style is a non-violent march
Style is an accurate account of what's inside every heart (Style)
Style is not a lie
Style is a man that cries
Style is the glow in a pregnant woman's eyes

U got it! - Style, come on

Sleep Around

Do it like she like, do it like she like it {x4}
CHORUS:
Do it like she like it
So your baby don't wanna sleep around
Give her what she want when she want
When it come 2 U, she down
Baby let me read her journal
Or should I say: she turned around and it was gone
The innuendo reads eternal
Or should I say: every other page I'm on
When she come 2 cook your dinner
U can ask her if what I say is true
The secret will remain within her
But her shade of red will turn yours blue
CHORUS
Maybe U recall last summer
When U saw her ridin' in my car
A kiss or 2 later she was back in your bed
Smellin' like a fallen star
Just because she's fine
U think she don't wine & dine with everyone U know
Oh, long as U're fooled, I'm cool
She says she gonna put me in a video
U need 2...
CHORUS
Oh yeah!
Sleep around, sleep around {x2}
I'm the one who sent the herbs and a book on how 2 use them
I'm the one who pointed out her fears and how 2 lose them
And if a difference love will make
This advice U oughta take
Baby let me read her journal
Or should I say: she turned around and it was gone
The innuendo reads eternal
Or should I say: every other page I'm on
U need 2...
Do it like she like, do it like she like it (Sleep around) {x3}
Do it like she like it, like it, like it...
Do it like she like it
So your baby don't wanna sleep around
Give her what she want when she want it
When it come 2 U, she down
Sleep around, sleep around
Do it like she like it
So your baby don't wanna sleep around
(I'm watchin' U, baby) (Do it like she like it, do it)
Give her what she want when she want it
When it come 2 U, she down
(Do it like she like)
Sleep around, sleep around
Do it like she like, do it like she like it {x4}
(Sleep around) {x5}
Do it like she like {x5}
Do it like she like it
Do it like she like
Do it {x10}
Do it like she like it (Sleep around)

Da, Da, Da

Da, da, da, da
Da, da, da, da, da
(Yeah y'all, it's like that y'all, it's like "Bet Your Life")
{sample repeated in song}
Yeah
It's like rolling in a Bronco pumpin' them pumps
U know what I'm sayin'?
On Broadway or somethin', U know what I'm sayin'?
Yo yo, straight up
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Hey yo, call the paddywagon, I've seen a black boy cash stackin'
Smirk on my face screamin', "Fuck the Grand Dragon"
4 the fast cash, we be thinkin' 2 slow
Clownin' each others on the damn talk shows
I don't wanna house but I gotta stick and rob
I got a disease, it's called "Can't find a job"
Smokin' on the herbs help me see a little better
Lookin' 4 a job in this cold ass weather
Watch out, I'm tryin' 2 get my shit 2gether (Da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
Yeah - da, da, da, da (Da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
(Gotta keep it goin', gotta keep it goin')
It's been kinda lonely (Da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
Da, da, da, da (Da, da, da, da, da, da)
(Gotta keep it goin', gotta keep it goin')
Hey yo, as soon as I come home, I'm stressed by my mama
Questionin' my whereabouts like I'm the Unabomber
Question mark, comma, freeze all the drama
Intensive care flows 4 all U hos smacked with trauma
As I sit back with my blunt and gin
Grab a pen, write a song about a million black men
Tryin' 2 blame all this violence on gangs
What about those fools who kill 4 nothin' and hijack planes?
(Let me hear U...)
Get your shit 2gether (Da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
Da, da, da, da (Da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
(Gotta keep it goin', gotta keep it goin')
Da, da, da, da (Da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
Da, da, da, da (Da, da, da, da, da, da)
(Gotta keep it goin', gotta keep it goin')
Yo, I'm goin' 4 the gold like a olympic sprinter
Fuck the bullshit, steaks 4 dinner this winter
Yo, I've seen a murder scene that left a fool scarred
Plus I saw a prisonyard way before a schoolyard
Time's rough plus time's runnin' out
My mom said if I trip one more time, I'm gettin' kicked out
And I ain't tryin' 2 make excuses
But lookin' 4 a job in the ghetto is fuckin' useless (Let me hear U sing)
Get your shit 2gether, straight up (Da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
Yeah, uh - da, da, da, da (Da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
(Let me hear U sing)
Da, da, da, da (Da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
Da, da, da, da (Da, da, da, da, da, da)
Ask yourself your destination
What the source of your inspiration be
And U will find a spirit tryin' 2 get back 2 the mind
How U was in your mama's belly
Live and let live was the order of the day
What U say?
Loving one another is the only way!
Da, da, da, da, da, da, da
If U believe in one thing, if U believe in 2 things
(Da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
If U believe in anything then let me hear U sing
"Da, da, da, da, da, da, da"
Keep on believin' (Da, da, da, da, da, da)
Lord
(Yeah y'all, it's like that y'all, it's like "Bet Your Life")
(Yeah y'all)
(Come on)
(Yeah y'all) {x2}
(It's like "Bet Your Life")
(Yeah y'all, it's like "Bet Your Life") {x3}
(Yeah)

My Computer

"Welcome, U've got mail" {AOL sample}
(Computer) {sample repeats in BG}
It was Sunday night, instead of doing what I usually do I..
CHORUS:
I scan my computer looking 4 a site
Somebody 2 talk 2, funny and bright
I scan my computer looking 4 a site
Make believe it's a better world, a better life
Nothing on TV I ain't seen before
Another murder on the news, I can't take no more
Evil Incorporated, blowing up bombs and thangs
I have a child, huh, I have a lot 2 explain
I could write a letter, but who would I send it 2?
It was Sunday night, instead of doing what I usually do I..
CHORUS
I called an old friend of mine just the other day
No congratulations, no respect paid
All she did was wonder if the rumors were true
I said - "No, I ain't dead yet, but uh.. what about U?"
I can count my friends with a peace sign: 1, 2
It was Sunday night, instead of doing what I usually do I..
I scan my computer looking 4 a site
Somebody 2 talk 2, funny and bright (Oh)
I scan my computer looking 4 a site
Make believe it's a better world, a better life (A better life)
I got no mail, my computer
I told them I don't wanna see a doctor unless he's lonely 2
Every Sunday night, instead of doing what I usually do I..
I scan my computer looking 4 a site
Somebody 2 talk 2, funny and bright
I scan my computer looking 4 a site
Make believe it's a better world (Make believe it's a better world)
A better life {x52}
"Goodbye" {AOL sample}

One Of Us



(We didn't write this song, but listen)
If God had a name, what would it be
And would we call it 2 His face
If we were faced with Him and all His glory?
What would U ask if U had just one question?
Yeah, yeah, God is great
Yeah, yeah, God is good
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!
CHORUS:
What if God was one of us?
Just a slave like one of us?
Just a stranger on the bus
Tryin' 2 make His way home
If God had a face, what would it look like
And would U wanna see it
If seeing meant that U would have 2 believe in things like heaven
And Jesus and the saints and all the prophets?
Yeah, yeah, God is great
Yeah, yeah, God is good
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!
CHORUS
Yeah
Yeah, yeah, God is great
Yeah, yeah, God is good
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!
What if God was one of us?
Just a slob (slave) like one of us?
Just a stranger on the bus
Tryin' 2 make His way home
Like a holy rollin' stone
Back up 2 heaven all alone
Nobody callin' on the phone
'Cept 4 the Pope maybe in Rome
But He ain't home, He aint home, He ain't home!
No, no, no, He ain't home! {x2}
Oh yeah, oh!
(What if God was one us?) {x4}

The Love We Make

Desperate is the day that is 2morrow
4 those who do not know the time has come
2 whip the dogs that beg, steal or borrow
From the table God set 4 His Son
Wicked is the witch that stands 4 nothing
All the while watching 2 see U fall
Deeper than the ditch that bred your suffering
The one being dug right now by them all
Happy is the way 2 meet your burdens
No matter how heavy or dark the day
Pity on those with no hope 4 2morrow
It's never as bad as it seems until we say
Precious is the baby with a mother
That tells him that his Saviour is coming soon
All that believe will cleanse and purify themselves
Put down the needle, put down the spoon {x2}
Sacred is the prayer that asks 4 nothing, oh
While seeking 2 give thanks 4 every breath we take, oh
Blessed are we inside this prayer
4 in the new world, we will be there
The only love there is, is the love we make {x2}
(The only love there is, is the love we make)
Only love there is, only love there is
The only love there is, is the love we make (Yeah)
The only love there is, is the love we make

Emancipation

Ever since I was a little baby
I had 2 have double everything
When they tell me that's enough
That's when I wanna fill my cup
2 the top, Johnny, hear me sing
CHORUS:
Emancipation - free 2 do what I wanna
Emancipation - see U in the purple rain
Emancipation - free 2 do what I wanna
Emancipation - break the chain, break the chain
Ever since that Eve did unto Adam, alright
What somebody been sho'nuff doin' 2 me (Watch it!)
I've been tryin' 2 break the chain
Get my little ass out the game
I'd rather sing with a bit more harmony, oh
CHORUS
Johnny please, huh, when I was on my knees
My back was broken and my spirit ill at ease
And now it seems just like the autumn leaves
Your money's turned from green 2 brown and now U best believe
CHORUS
(Emancipation) {repeat in BG}
Break the chain, oh yeah
Well, sho'nuff
See U in the purple rain
Emancipation - free 2 do what I wanna
Break the.. break the.. break the chain!
Hey!
Alright!
Hey! {x4}
Emancipation
Free - don't think I ain't!
Emancipation
