        We going to fun baby, baby, it’s on

        [Pre-Chorus 2]
        Gotta new Puerto Rican score
        And she doin’ it on the floor
        When the groove rubberbaby’s hot
        I’m givin’ it all I got

        [Chorus 2]
        Ooh, everybody’s here
        This is the jam of the year
        Ooh, everybody’s here
        This is the jam of the year

        [Verse 1]
        Give me a drummer and a funky bass line
        That’s all I need and I’m ready to flow
        Been chilling in the cut and now I’m coming to get mine
        And if I hit you once, I got to hit you some more

        (Raise your glass if you’re on your own)
        All the girls say “Ho!” (Ho!) if your man’s giving up the gold
        All the fellows say “Woof!” if you’re only giving up the bone
        Tonight we’re going to hide it

          Don’t want you to write me no letters
          Don’t want you calling my farm

          [Chorus 2]
          I just want you, I just want you
          I just want you right back here in my arms

          [Verse 2]

          Till I get to, till I get to
          Till I get to hug that body so fine

          That’s why I ain’t showing my face (Right)

          [Chorus 1]

          [Verse 4]

          You know a brother gonna feel much better
          If he keep his mind on, you know, whatever
          Anything as long as it is making it wetter
          Because I can’t stop thinking about what we do
          There ought to be a law against the hoochie ooh! (Ooh!)
          Can we groove? I don’t want to do you no harm
          I just want you right back here in my arms
          Oh baby (Right back here in my arms)
          Don’t want you to write me no letters

          [Chorus 2]

          [Chorus 1]

          [Outro]
          I’ll try to write you back
          (Right back here in my arms)

            Lyrics below

             

            [Intro]
            Somebody’s somebody
            Somewhere, someone

            [Verse 1]
            It’s 2 o’clock in the morning and I just can’t sleep
            Outside the rain is pouring, I’m lonely as can be
            Maybe tonight’ll be different than the nights before
            I need to feel someone beside me, I can’t be alone no more

            [Chorus]
            Tonight I want to be somebody’s somebody
            Tonight I want to belong to someone (Someone)
            Tonight I want to be somebody’s somebody
            Tonight I want somebody that’ll do it until the job gets done (Oh yeah)

            [Verse 2]
            This big old world can be so empty living in it all alone
            I realize, in its best disguise, a pretty house don’t make a home
            There’s a hunger deep inside of me, how the fire burns
            I want to give good love to someone and get good love in return, oh

            [Chorus]

            [Bridge]
            Somebody’s somebody
            Someone
            I want to be somebody’s body
            Oh yes, oh yeah
            Someone to hold me in that hour midnight
            Someone to console me when things ain’t goin’ too right
            Someone to bring me dinner sometime, yeah (Mine, all mine)
            Somebody to can call all mine

            [Verse 3]
            It’s 2:05 in the morning and I got no one to call
            I’m longin’ to hear another voice inside these lonely walls (Lonely walls)
            Maybe tonight’ll be different (different) than the nights before (Maybe not)
            I need to feel someone beside me, I cannot be alone no more (No more, no more!)

            [Chorus][x2]

            [Verse 4]
            Somebody’s somebody
            I don’t want to be alone, no no!
            I don’t want to wait another day, no!
            I’ll do it over and over and over and over, yeah!
            Ooh, I don’t want to wait, no!
            Can I belong to you, baby? Oh yeah! (I want to belong to someone)
            Ooh, slow, deep and long
            Do me over and over and over and over

            [Outro]
            (Tonight I want to be somebody’s somebody)
            Oh yeah
            If you’re out there, come on, baby
            I’ll keep it hot for you
            (Tonight I want to be somebody’s somebody)
            Come on, baby
            (Tonight I want somebody that’ll do it until the job gets done, oh yeah)
            Done
            Somebody’s somebody

              I got some money because I just got paid

              Oh, get it on
              Girl, I think we better leave
              Because if we don’t, I think I might have to have another one
              Then I might change my name
              To… ?
              What’s my name? Margarita
              Y’all help me find Juice, I’m trying, I can’t find him
              Are you still looking for him?
              Yeah, he’s just… you know
              He’s up in here somewhere, I can’t find him though
              (No no, definitely not seen him)
              Girl, let’s go, I smell like an ashtray
              (It’s time to go)
              We ain’t going nowhere
              Sir, I’m sorry
              This club has a very strict dress code
              We do not accept bluejeans
              What you mean?
              It don’t take Stevie Wonder to see I got on the right clothes in here
              I need to get up in this club
              Hell, I could buy every one of you
              Fuck yourself!

                  [Verse 1]
                  There’s a spark of magic in your eyes
                  Candyland appears each time you smile
                  Never thought that fairy tales came true
                  But they come true when I’m near you
                  You’re a genie in disguise
                  Full of wonder and surprise and

                  [Chorus]
                  Bet you by golly wow! (wow!) (wow!)

                  [Verse 2]
                  If I could, I’d catch a falling star
                  To shine on you so I know where you are
                  Paint a rainbow in your favorite shade
                  To show I love you, thinking of you
                  Write your name across the sky
                  Anything you ask, I’ll try because

                  And ever will my love for you keep growing strong!

                  [Verse 4: Voiceover]
                  Baby, sometimes
                  A man can’t find words to express all the things he feels inside
                  But every just so often
                  The words of another who’s truly in love seem To work out fine

                  [Bridge]
                  To say I love you (I love you)
                  To say I’m thinking of you!

                  [Chorus]

                  [Outro]
                  You’re the one I’m thinking of, thinkin’ of
                  Ever will my
                  And ever will my love for you keep growing strong
                  Keep growing strong
                  I love you, baby

                      Big white mansion
                      Top of the road
                      Latest fashion
                      Happy, don’t you know?

                      [Verse 1]
                      Here I am in New York, yeah
                      See the girl bold and fair
                      What’s in your backpack today?
                      Will it take my blues away?
                      That’s OK, “you gotta run”
                      Huh, check it, I don’t need you to have some fun
                      Coming from the land of snow
                      I guess I’m kind of used to cold

                      [Chorus]
                      But one day I’ll have a big white mansion

                      I could use a new guitar
                      Sing a tune at Chazz’ bar
                      Maybe meet a debutante
                      Be a toy, do what she want (Tell me what you wanna do?)
                      9 o’clock, see John K
                      “But you don’t rock, come another day” (When?)
                      Come another day
                      Spirit so low reaching up for ground (Reaching up for ground)
                      One day I’m going to make it in this lonely town

                      Hey there, what’s your name? (What’s your name, cutie?)
                      And can you tell me how to play the game? (“I am a winner”) (Listen to this)
                      Do I really have to cut my hair? (No)
                      Now that’s a cross I could never bear (How about them publishing rights?)
                      Sell my publishing? What a laugh! (Ha ha)
                      I don’t know Bo but I do know math (I do know math)
                      Back to Minneapolis, there you go
                      You can’t find your house underneath the snow

                      [Chorus]
                      Because you’re living in a big white mansion (Oh yes)
                      At the top of the road
                      You’re wearing the latest fashion
                      Trying to be happy, don’t you know? (Trying to be happy, happy)

                      You and me wearing Versace, Gucci (Latest fashion)
                      Hoochies, they all wanna do me (Happy, don’t you know?)
                      But am I really happy?

                            [Intro: Scrap D.]
                            Turn off that weak jam, man
                            Come on, huh
                            Mr. Happy’s here, huh, and we’re bugging

                            [Chorus: Prince]
                            I will take care of you
                            Whatever you want, I do it right
                            Oh, I will take care of you
                            Mr. Happy every day and night, oh

                            [Verse 1: Prince]
                            I got some money, I got some juice
                            But somethings funny, I ain’t got you
                            I comes to party (Yeah), don’t wanna be alone
                            I need somebody – somebody grown

                            [Chorus]

                            [Verse 2: Prince]
                            Sugarbaby, with the curly hair
                            Dancing crazy, underwear
                            Witcha name on it, looking fine (“Bought a house next to Prince”) (Fine)
                            Keep smacking that booty and you’ll be mine

                            [Chorus]

                            [Verse 3: Scrap D.]
                            Pump it up, pump it up
                            Brown man, puffing on a weak jam
                            Understand this is 80 proof
                            Guaranteed to get your girl loose if she douche
                            Throw your set up to the roof, huh
                            Third finger down, if you’re wild, make a sound
                            Look at my people getting on down (Get down, get down)
                            Skip the Remy and let me have some Mary Tyler Moore of that new power soul
                            Coming from the midwest passing every test with a fuzztone remote control

                            [Chorus]

                            [Verse 4: Scrap D.]
                            I’ll make your love come down like a freaking elevator
                            In the middle of the night, body vibrating like a pager
                            You play the drink, baby, I’ll play the chaser
                            Do I love you? I can’t love you because I hate you
                            See, you 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 to do damage (I will take care of you)
                            Rock your world, knock your brain to another planet
                            You know my North Pole can generate heat
                            Been thinking about me? Hmm, I can see them stains in your sheets
                            Before the reputation, they all used to pass me (I will take care of you)
                            Yeah?
                            Now they stop to ask me
                            For real?
                            Straight up, the lifestyle of Mr. Happy
                            Yeah

                            [Outro: Prince]
                            I will take care of you
                            Whatever you want, I do it right, oh
                            Mr. Happy every day and night
                            (Yeah)
                            (“Microphone check”)

                              [Verse 1]
                              To these walls I talk
                              Telling them what I wasn’t strong enough to say
                              To these walls I talk
                              Telling them how I cried the day you went away

                              [Chorus]
                              How did we ever lose communication?
                              How did we ever lose each other’s sound?
                              Baby, if you wanna, we can fix the situation
                              Maybe we can stop the rain from coming down

                              [Verse 2]
                              In this bed I scream
                              Lonely nights I lay awake thinking of you
                              And if I’m cursed with a dream
                              A thousand times I feel whatever I’ve put you through

                              [Bridge]
                              Tell me, how’re we gonna put this back together?
                              How’re we gonna think with the same mind?
                              Knowing all along that life is so much better
                              Living and loving together all the time
                              Living and loving
                              In this bed I, in this bed I, in this bed I scream

                              [Verse 3]
                              In this car I drive
                              I’m looking for the road that leads back To the soul we shared
                              With my very life
                              I’d gladly be the body upon the cross we bear (Cross we bear)

                              [Chorus]

                              [Outro]
                              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

                                [Verse 1]
                                Afternoon in the city, somewhere in July
                                Policemen acting… yeah, you know, de-elevate a brother’s high
                                The mama’s in the short dress, blowing in the breeze
                                The papa’s just a-praying for the gust that will bust that butt out, please, oh!

                                Everybody’s got a black book in case of emergency
                                In case the sun is shining at the beach and the honeys are out to play
                                The cool boys just a-watching all the pretty moves you make
                                Fronting in the sun, jamming for the one lover that you wanna take home

                                [Chorus]

                                Checking out Mahalia’s greatest – “In The Upper Room”
                                When my boy Kirk calls singing
                                “Hope we get together soon (soon, soon)
                                We can fire up the Honda and pick up Rhonda
                                We can jam on a brand new tune
                                Improvise all through the night, it’ll be just like having”

                                Can’t you feel the new day dawning? All believers will see
                                An end to suffering and every disease
                                Every waking hour will soon be spent kissing each other
                                Angelic sisters and brothers
                                Clap your hands for one another, we’ll be having

                                  Every part of you comes alive when you take it slow
                                  And every nervous twitch that happens when my tongue is there
                                  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 tonight I want to do mine

                                  Give your woman what she wants and give her what she needs
                                  (What she needs [x3])
                                  Ask her in a whisper that only two can hear
                                  What can I do, what can I say, baby? Forget your every single fear
                                  Slowly I pull your strap down and touch you as if to heal (heal)
                                  Layer by layer, inch by inch, until your true love is revealed

                                  [Verse 3]
                                  If every man could love their woman the way that I love you
                                  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

                                    Loving you in silence, knowing that it’s right
                                    Under your gaze I ponder this love tonight
                                    Unbothered by the chaos swirling around outside
                                    In your arms is where I want to live and die

                                    In a mirror where your sweet reflection used to be
                                    There is hope, there is joy, my soul sanctuary
                                    My soul sanctuary

                                    Sanctuary, baby, nothing compares to this
                                    In my darkest hour you can be my bliss (Bliss)
                                    All of me I give to thee down at your feet
                                    The reassurance in your rhythm speaks to me
                                    Over and over your screams are like a prayer
                                    In the dark, you are there (you are there), my soul sanctuary

                                    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 you

                                      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

                                      He couldn’t wait to tell her until after he got the nella
                                      Her love would only even the score
                                      It seemed her darling fella
                                      He stole a hell of lot of 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 you (Tell you)
                                      While I’m deep in your smell
                                      You got the man I want to inflict with pain
                                      I’m running a game with my paper
                                      I’m turning the boy to vapor
                                      Now I wanna do the same to you
                                      If you don’t tattoo my name upon your train”

                                        Curious child on the balcony
                                        We took the dare
                                        Careless I was to caress thee
                                        Yet never regretting the time
                                        The joy that we shared, it was meant to be
                                        And not a crime
                                        No, it’s not a crime
                                        If memory serves us, we will align
                                        To the truth that we most often share
                                        Curious child, you are on my mind
                                        Do you care?

                                            Before I melt the wax to quizzical
                                            Let me just say that you are physically
                                            The most toned one I’ve ever seen

                                            So first I need a picture of your mother
                                            To verify the fact that there’s not another
                                            One in the universe so supreme
                                            Damn, you got the rock to give a brother cream (Cream)
                                            And if we’re ever naked in the same machine

                                            [Verse 3: Ninety-9]
                                            I never sucked sour splints from a chew stick
                                            Don’t lick bics because fire sticks to flame (flame)
                                            Get wicks to catch brothers who choose to 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])

                                            [Chorus 2][x4]

                                            [Verse 3: Prince]

                                            You can get with me, you can get with me
                                            Joint to joint
                                            Up the stairs to my lovely room
                                            Stroke your face and you’re under soon
                                            Sitting in the corner in your underwear
                                            Letting me caress your nappy hair
                                            Joint to joint, nothing comes for free
                                            If you show your love, you can get with me
                                            And if you light my candle, we can share the stone
                                            Flames of desire, sweet gypsy moans
                                            Sweet gypsy moans

                                            [Chorus 2][x3]

                                            [Verse 4: Prince & Ninety-9]
                                            Joint to joint, nothing comes for free
                                            Oh great, now you think you’re my soulmate
                                            You don’t even know what kind of cereal I like
                                            Wrong! Cap’n Crunch with soy milk
                                            Because cows are for calves
                                            You’d probably take me for half
                                            You don’t love me, you’re a faker
                                            You just want me for my acres
                                            (Na na, na na na na)

                                            [Verse 4: Ninety-9]
                                            Joint to joint, nothing comes for free (Sex me)
                                            If you show your love, you can get with me [repeat in a loop]
                                            (Na na, na na na na) (Nothing comes for free)
                                            If we’re ever naked in the same machine
                                            Baby, we can kick it joint to joint

                                            [Outro: Prince & Ninety-9]
                                            Where to?

                                            Listen, I just gotta get outta here, that’s all

                                              [Intro]
                                              Let’s go down to the holy river
                                              If we drown then we’ll be delivered

                                              [Chorus 1]
                                              You can still see the picture upon the wall
                                              One eye staring at nothing at all
                                              The other one trying to focus through all your tears

                                              [Verse 1]
                                              You can try and try but there’s nothing to hide
                                              You can’t run from yourself and what’s inside
                                              You got to find the answers to the questions that You most fear

                                              [Chorus 2]
                                              So over and over you ask your soul
                                              Why’d you come down to a world so cold?
                                              And the voice inside says 2night the truth will be told

                                              [Verse 2]
                                              You surrounded yourself with all the wrong faces
                                              Spending your time in all the wrong places
                                              Putting your faith in things that only make you cry
                                              People say they love you when they want to help
                                              But how can they when you can’t help yourself?
                                              The more they say they love you, the more you just want to die
                                              So here we go again, the self-analysis
                                              Have another glass of Port and forget this
                                              The band’s playing at the club tonight and they’re bound to groove

                                              [Bridge]
                                              There you are, you think you’re high
                                              You can’t ask yourself because you’d only lie
                                              If you had a dollar for every time you tried

                                              [Verse 2]
                                              You can’t call nobody because they’ll tell you straight up
                                              Come and make love when you really hate them
                                              Relationships based on the physical are over and done
                                              They’re over and done (They’re over and done)
                                              You’d rather have fun
                                              With only one, with only one
                                              Only one… one (one)
                                              And then it hit you like a fist on a wall
                                              Who gave you life when there was none at all?
                                              Who gave the sun permission to rise up everyday? (Ooh, oh yes)
                                              Let me tell it (Go on)
                                              If you ask God to love you longer
                                              Every breath you take will make you stronger
                                              Keeping you happy (happy) and proud to call His name (Go on and say it)
                                              Jesus (Jesus)

                                              [Chorus 2]

                                              [Verse 3]
                                              And this time I was listening, hear me
                                              Let’s go down to 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 you die before you try
                                              You’ll have to come back and face the light (Oh yes)
                                              When you believe it, you got a good reason to cry (Oh my, my)
                                              So I went on down to the holy river
                                              I called my girl and told her I had something to give her
                                              I asked her to marry me and she said yes, I cried
                                              Oh, that night I drowned in her tears and mine
                                              And instead of a glass of sorrow and wine
                                              Looking back you all, I don’t miss nothing except the time

                                              [Chorus 1]
                                              And when I see that picture upon the wall
                                              The one eye staring at nothing at all
                                              My eyes trying to focus but these are much different tears

                                              [Outro]
                                              Oh, yes they are
                                              Let’s go down to the holy river [x6]

                                                So long have I gazed into your eyes
                                                Wondering 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 to your voice
                                                Wondering what it would sound like coming from a girl or a boy
                                                Isn’t it funny that when you’re truly in love
                                                How just the thought of such things can bring you so much joy?

                                                Oh girl, come and shut the door, go on, shut it
                                                Let’s make love

                                                I’m leaving it up to you
                                                I’ll do what you want to do
                                                But you got to understand
                                                You’re my woman and I’m your man
                                                I can’t even go for a ride
                                                Believe me, honey, I’ve tried
                                                Without thinking about a little baby
                                                A baby sitting right by my side
                                                And if anybody in the whole wide world
                                                Ever thought that they could do that for me
                                                They are one mistaken girl
                                                Because baby, you got me, you got me open, yes you do
                                                And we’re doing just fine
                                                If you really love me, baby
                                                If you can find the time

                                                  How did I ever come this far without you, baby?

                                                    It was only because I’d never held your hand
                                                    That was part of the plan
                                                    I had to get it right if I was to be your man

                                                    [Verse 1]
                                                    And if I ever kissed your lips
                                                    I needed time to cross the others off my list (off my list)
                                                    A higher high to the trip (trip)
                                                    I wanted you to go, that was my wish – yes it was

                                                    If I ever shared a bed
                                                    It was only because I wanted to live up to what the people said, oh yes
                                                    (What they say?)[x5]

                                                    Everyday just to say you’re the only one who’s in my head

                                                    All I have to do is think about it and I just want to die (I just want to die)

                                                      Everybody keeps trying to break my heart
                                                      Everybody except for me
                                                      I just want a chance to play the part
                                                      The part of someone truly free

                                                      [Verse 1]
                                                      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

                                                      Burning slowly candle, handle careless they did
                                                      Merrily down three heartbreak boulevards
                                                      Like fashion statements, they lie “you be looking so good tonight, kid”
                                                      I do my best to party, it’s just that everybody keeps trying to break my heart

                                                      [Verse 3]
                                                      Slowly candle burns, where’d they learn hypnosis?
                                                      How’d they keep me under for so long?
                                                      Break the bread I earn, just keep me far from closest
