Butterfly-Tox

C'était la plus pure et la plus douce des moukères
Que l'on vît jamais dans les sables du Sahara
Hou !
Butterfly-Tox, c'était son nom, vivait solitaire
Bien loin de l'amour, des dancings et des cinémas
Hou !
Cependant son petit cœur
Battait, plein d'ardeur
Et ses prières dans la nuit
S'exhalaient ainsi
 
Ha, ha, ha !
Doux seigneur Allah
Conduis sur mes pas
Celui qui m'aimera
Halla, ha la ha
Je me l' dis tout bas
Il fera c' qu'il voudra
Dans ma petite casbah
Trabadja la moukère
Trabadja bono
Halla, ha la ha, ha la ha
Tu m' diras si c'est chaud
Hou !
 
Un jour sur un grand chameau, un officier d' marine
Parut devant elle et poliment lui dit 'Bonjour !'
Éperdue d'amour elle se jeta sur sa poitrine
Et vite ils comprirent qu'ils s'aimaient depuis toujours
 
Tendrement dans sa casbah
Elle le pilota
Et quelques instants après
Elle roucoulait
Ha, ha, ha !
Halla, ha la ha
Je ne savais pas que c'était si doux qu' ça
Halla, ha la ha
Quel jour de gala !
Jure-moi, mon pacha
Que tu n' me quitteras pas
Trabadja la moukère
Trabadja bono
Halla, ha la ha, ha la ha
Tu m' diras si c'est chaud
Hou !
 
Mais la lendemain il repartit sur sa tartane
En lui disant 'Attends-moi, je reviendrai bientôt'
Oh !
Alors elle pleura dans sa chemise en tarlatane
Et mit au monde une fille, à travers ses sanglots
 
Elle attendit très longtemps
L'infidèle amant
Et pour bercer son enfant
Elle chantait doucement
 
Ha, ha, ha !
Pleure pas ma Nulma
Ton petit papa
Bientôt il reviendra
Ah, ti m'embêtes !
Ti pleures tout l' temps
Ji ti jette sous l' lit
Et si t'is pas contente
Ti crache par terre
Allez, hop ! Ti dors !
Trabadja la moukère
Trabadja bono
Halla, ha la ha, ha la ha
Tu m' diras si c'est chaud
Halla, ha la ha, ha la ha...
You, you, you, you !
 

Le Chant de Fidélité

Des hommes à l'âme vile,
Chassant le sceptre et la croix
Ont imposé dans nos villes
Le reniement de la Loi.
 
Mais pour que toujours sur terre
Reste un point de ralliement,
D'âge en âge sont fidèles
Les hommes de notre sang.
Mais pour que toujours sur terre
Reste un point de ralliement,
D'âge en âge sont fidèles
Les hommes de notre sang.
 
Fidèles aux voix de l'âme,
Des bois, du roc et du sang;
Fidèles à la vrai flamme,
Fidèles à leurs enfants,
 
Lorsqu'a chanté la chouette,
A l'ombre de nos halliers
Ils sont partis pour la quête
Du Graal et du Chevalier.
Lorsqu'a chanté la chouette,
A l'ombre de nos halliers
Ils sont partis pour la quête
Du Graal et du Chevalier.
 
Les ennemis de la Messe
Ont bafoué la raison.
Semé le doute, la détresse
Au cœur de nos maisons.
 
Ils ont traqué les bons Pères,
Voulu souiller nos enfants,
Mais le chœur des âmes fières
Triomphera dans le vent.
Ils ont traqué les bons Pères,
Voulu souiller nos enfants,
Mais le chœur des âmes fières
Triomphera dans le vent.
 
Quand les autres trahiront
Camarades soyons fidèles.
Défendons la tradition,
Luttons pour l'Europe nouvelle.
 
Vrais héritiers des nobles Francs
Fidèles à Dieu et au Roi,
La lutte pour nos descendants
Emplit nos esprits de joie.
Vrais héritiers des nobles Francs
Fidèles à Dieu et au Roi,
La lutte pour nos descendants
Emplit nos esprits de joie.
 

Sur la route

Sur la route, près d'un vieux chêne,
Deux paras sont là postés.
Ils écoutent sur la route,
Un coup part, l'un d'eux tombe frappé.
 
Mon village aux frais ombrages
Où m'attend ma bien-aimée,
Sous les roses fraîches écloses,
Elle attend le retour espéré.
 
Sur la route près d'un vieux chêne,
Un para est là posté.
Il écoute, il retrouve
Le souvenir de tout son passé.
 
Mon village aux frais ombrages
Où m'attend ma bien-aimée,
Sous les roses fraîches écloses,
Elle attend le retour espéré.
 
Sur la route près d'un vieux chêne,
Un para est là posté.
Il veut croire que la gloire,
Ne permet pas le moindre regret.
 

Les Bérets Verts

Dans le ciel couleur d'acier,
Ils descendent par milliers,
Ceux, qui vont sur cette terre,
Lutter pour le béret vert.
 
Il faut croire ce que l'ont dit,
Ne dire que si l’on agit,
Etre brave et être fier
Pour gagner son béret vert.
 
Ils sont parmi les meilleurs
Qui combattent et qui meurent,
Pour l’Occident qui espère
Rester grâce aux bérets verts.
 
Il a laissé en mourant,
Avec ses ailes d’argents,
Une lettre pour sa femme,
Une lettre du Vietnam.
 
Donne les ailes d’argents,
Mon fils, quand il sera grand,
Qu’il soit brave et qu’il soit fier
Pour gagner le béret vert.
 

Prière à Jeanne d'Arc

Jeanne d'Arc, ô vierge bénie
Par qui la France à l'agonie
Fut arrachée à l'oppresseur,
Ne laisse pas dans la tempête
Périr le prix de ta conquête.
 
Garde la France, garde la France,
Garde la France, ô noble sœur !
Garde la France, garde la France,
Garde la France, ô noble sœur !
 

Ukraine 1933

Terrible hiver pour l’Ukraine,
Livrée aux troupes de Staline ;
Sanglant hiver de la haine,
Génocide et famine...
 
Sur les routes sifflent les balles :
Ils chassent les populations ;
Par la faim et les rafales,
Ils ont tué six millions.
 
Le froid, le sang, les larmes,
Les camps et les morts cruelles ;
L’Ukraine sans amis, sans armes,
N’espère plus que du ciel.
 
Espoir plus haut que le monde,
Espoir tendu vers le ciel ;
Ils sortiront de la tombe,
Pour revoir le soleil…
 

Le lavandou

Je connais sur la mer de Provence
un petit coin qui sent bon comme tout,
trois syllabes d'azur qui me dansent
dans le coeur un appel des plus doux.
Au retour de ma mer lumineuse
a ma terre enviera le ciel fou.
Des parfums a l'essence amoureuse
au retour de ton cher Lavandou.
Oh! beau pays du Lavandou
pouvoir y vivre son rêve,
oh! doux pays du Lavandou
pouvoir aimer sans trêve.
Voltiger sur ton ciel a la liesse
dans l'heure folle de la kermesse.
Une fois qu'on a vu ton image
reste au fond de leurs esprits.
Roule d'une valse comme un nuage
que l'heure du ciel inonde.
Semble sur l'eau
veilleur amant
des secrets paradis.
 

Les jours où rien ne va

Il existe des jours comme ça
On voudrait mieux rester dans les draps
Bien calé dans la tiédeur
Comme dans le ventre de sa mère
En attendant que s'éteignent
Les jours où rien ne va
 
Dehors c'est déjà tout le bruit
Des enfants qui jouent sous la pluie
À pousser d'étranges cris
Qui nous font rêver d'animaux fous
En attendant que s'éteignent
Les jours où rien ne va
 
L'atelier est plein de fracas
Familier et très quotidien
Des marteaux et des rabots
Et des gestes tous bien habituels
En attendant que s'éteignent
Les jours où rien ne va
 
Plus loin, c'est la grande cohue
Qui dépeuple toutes les âmes
Et habille tous les regards
D'un immense manteau vide et blanc
En attendant que s'éteignent
Les jours où rien ne va
 

Mademoiselle from Armentières

Un joli sourire de France
Des fossettes aux joues
Des cheveux tout fous
Des yeux bleus très doux
 
Sur son berceau dès sa naissance
Une bonne fée
D'un coup de baguette
Avait changé sa destinée
 
Mademoiselle from Armentières
Parlez-vous?
Mademoiselle from Armentières
Parlez-vous?
Elle n'avait pas encore parlé
Qu'elle savait déjà chanter
Mademoiselle from Armentières
 
Puis vint l'âge d'être écolière
D'apprendre à compter
D'apprendre à parler
Ça ça l'ennuyait
 
Mais faire l'école buissonnière
Ça, ça l'amusait
Toujours gaie comme un pinson
Elle chantait sa chanson
 
Mademoiselle from Armentières
Parlez-vous?
Mademoiselle from Armentières
Parlez-vous?
Elle n'avait pas encore parlé
Qu'elle savait déjà chanter
Mademoiselle from Armentières
 
Mais un matin ce fut la guerre
Et tous les soldats
Qui passaient par-là
Se disaient tout bas
 
La voyant si belle et si fière
Ah! Qu'on serait bien
Blottis dans ses bras
Douillettement jusqu'au matin
 
(Mademoiselle from Armentières
Parlez-vous?
Mademoiselle from Armentières
Parlez-vous?)
Mademoiselle from Armentières
Never been kissed for twenty years
Hinky dinky, parlez-vous
 
Quand on raconte cette histoire
Dans tous les pays
On ajoute aussi
Qu'elle eut un mari
 
Les gens qui ont bonne mémoire
Vont vous raconter
Qu'elle accepta d'épouser
Un colonel anglais
 
Mademoiselle from Armentières
Voulez-vous?
Mademoiselle from Armentières
Voulez-vous?
Comme elle lui répondit: 'Oui'
Elle eut un très gentil mari
Mademoiselle from Armentières
 
(Mademoiselle from Armentières
Parlez-vous?
Mademoiselle from Armentières
Parlez-vous?)
Mademoiselle from Armentières
Never been kissed for twenty years
Hinky dinky, parlez-vous
 

Longueur d'onde

[Intro]
Que t'écoutes de la pop, de la soul, d'la pop-rock ou d'la techno
D'la dancehall ou bien du rap pour les péquenots
Que tu carbures à la bière ou au cidre
À la sav', à la weed, à la poudre, à l'acide
 
[Couplet 1]
Si t'es saoulé par le rap de teenagers
Fatigué d'entendre piailler les bandes de yorkshires
Des rappeurs conscients qui t'font la leçon par cœur
Des gangsters foireux qui s'imaginent te faire peur
Je te propose un courant alternatif
Pour mettre la gifle, éraflant la chair à vif
Avec la griffe d'un niveau qui va faire la dif'
Quiconque m’appelle 'la 'mif'' prendra le même tarif
Leurs crews, leurs beatmakers et leurs sons
Je m'fous d'savoir c'que les autres rappeurs font
Je rebondis au jeu d’échecs et leur plombe
Sur toute longueur d'onde, les mouv' de leurs pions
En équilibre sur une main là où ils sont mal assis
Entre leur mental et le mien, y a des galaxies
Déprimer est humain, plutôt que d'faire un maxi
Rapper en rond ne résout rien, qu'ils aillent voir un psy
Du haut de leur ignorance, ils trippent grave
J'en ai croisé des références, des types braves
Tellement subversifs et sûrs de c'qu'ils savent
'On roule près du périph'' : ils kiffent sur des trav'
Sista, ma sista, ne te formalise pas
Je n'fais que de la distraction, soumets les 'cistes-ra'
Comprennent qui pourra, et bien qu'on puisse pas aimer
Prends mon carnet pendant que je ne fais que freestyler
 
[Refrain] (x2)
Yo, yo, t'as compris ou pas ?
J'te l'refais ? Pas la peine, t'as saisi ou pas ?
Vivons-nous au cœur du même monde ?
Sommes-nous, sommes-nous sur la même longueur d'onde ?
 
[Couplet 2]
Si tu sais lire entre les lignes, je peux écrire entre
T'as l'esprit ouvert, pas besoin de signe, j'entre
Ancienne ou nouvelle école ? J'ai pris l'centre
Je suis d'l'école qu'apprend à s'remplir l'ventre
J'ai vu la concubine de l’hémoglobine
Connu très tôt l'usine ainsi qu'un bon lot d'coquines
Sous spleen dans ma tête, et les idées qui trottinent
Sont en marge de vos rimeurs un tantinet trop cleans
Ma jeunesse ne fut pas rosée, j'ai qu'ma cause à plaider
Ainsi qu'une prose causant des nausées que j'ai bon cœur à donner
Esseulé, j'ai imposé sans jamais gueuler ma soul, et
Reviens donner la douleur, relevant les compteurs affolés
Mes collègues font ce qu'ils peuvent, ayant très peu d'idées neuves
Et s'abreuvent au fil du fleuve entre les braves et les 'tres-traî'
Je n'ai aucune preuve à faire, et je le prends, sifflons les caisses
De liqueurs qui pleuvent, et n'arrêterai que quand je serai sevré
 
[Refrain] (x4)
 

Doux Noël

Je rêves d'un doux noel pour nous deux.
De voir le feu briller dans tes yeux.
Et au pied du sapin.te tenir par la main.
Et puis t'offrir tout l'amour en cadeaux.
 
Qu'il serais doux çe noel pour nous deux.
Avec dehors la neige les étoiles au cieux.
Près de la cheminée,te couvrir de baiser.
Je veux un doux noel.
Rien que pour nous deux.
 
Et au pied du sapin,
Te tenir par la main.
Je rêves d'un doux noel
Rien que pour nous deux
 
Et au pied du sapin
Te tenir par la main
Je rêve d'un doux noel
Rien que pour nous deux.
 

Minuit Chrétiens

Minuit chretiens,
C'est l'heure solennelle
Ou l'homme-Dieu descendit jusqu'a nous
Pour effacer la tache originelle
Et de son coeur apporter le courroux
Le monde entier tressaille d'esperance
Car cette nuit il lui donne un sauveur
 
Peuples, a genou
Attends te delivrance
Noel, Noel
Voici le redempteur
Noel, Noel
Voici le redempteur
 
Le redempteur
A brise toute entrave
 

Ready, Steady, Wiggle!

Ready, steady, wiggle!
Emma, Lachy, Simon, and Anthony too!
Ready, steady, wiggle!
You can jump like a kangaroo!
 
Ready, steady, wiggle!
Dorothy, Wags, and Henry too!
Ready, steady, wiggle!
And Captain Feathersword, woo-hoo!
 
(Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, woo!)

Habibi, Maghribi
She said: 'Wallah', she never leave me
I said: 'Aywa, habibti helwa'
In a drop head with a tan one
And a mansion by the beach
Belly dancing, no sleep
Maldives, Belize, catching tan
My brother Sal, he's a hayawan
Back and forth same night, no one know about it
Moroccan green passport, King Lancelot
Ya, we got the bank, got the bank, got the bank
One time for Chinx, my habibi

Fire burnin' up, I ain't givin' up
Take it to the top, making money, we gon' never leave
Pass me that Cîroc, pour it in a cup
Baby, make it drop, shake your body right in front of me
Ain't never gon' be waiting for you
Pockets full of gold, in the zone you can find me
I'm thinking I could spend it on you

Ya, we got the bank, got the bank, got the bank

Peace Train

Now, I've been happy lately
Thinking about the good things to come
And I believe it could be
Something good has begun
 
Oh, I've been smiling lately
Dreaming about the world as one
And I believe it could be
Someday it's going to come
 
'Cause out on the edge of darkness
There rides the peace train
Oh, peace train take this country
Come take me home again
 
Oh, peace train sounding louder
Ride on the peace train
Ooo, come on the peace train
 
Yes, peace train holy roller
Everyone jump upon the peace train
Ooo, come on the peace train
 
Now get your bags together
Go bring your good friends too
Because it's getting nearer
It soon will be with you
 
Now come and join the living
Accept the point of view
And it's getting nearer
Soon it will all be true
 
Now, I've been crying lately
Thinking about the world as it is
Why must we go on hating?
Why can't we love and live?
 
Oh, peace train sounding louder
Ride on the peace train
Ooo, come on the peace train
 
Yes, peace train holy roller
Everyone jump upon the peace train
Ooo, come on, come on, come on
 
Yes, peace train
Yes, it's the peace train!
 

I Don't Care

[Verse 1]
Walking through the backwoods of my hometown
I ain't tryna talk now put the phone down
Everybody call lots but before I was lost lookin for anybody who was like me we could talk when we bored wow
Now they hit me up I got what they don't have
A little name thats been popping on phone apps
Want to record a couple song with me honestly people so funny 'cause we all know you don't rap
And thats factual I don't represent the town I grew up in back in school
Just the map is cool
If not that then I'm repping everybody who relating to the raps I do
It's that simple
Fuck a dumb bitch who don't get you
Anybody else who gotta issue
I'm open to the talking don't ask if we friends to
'Cause then I get to jogging as if you blew a whistle
I do this shit often you best not fuck with me
Spitting since a kid when nobody really fucked with me
Company only come through when they want something
Luxury
Money and the jewels if you got any
Other than that I keep a couple homies from in the past
And the ones that I made just from spitting raps so
Bitches act so mad gettin pressed
And I figured it was best if I teach y'all a lesson
 
[Chorus]
Everybody tryna talk to me
Get involved with me
Say wassup and I don't care
Even people who would bully me
Dap me up and think that I'm dope fuck I don't care
Everybody really lost it seems changing up when things ain't the same but I don't care
Yeah I already got over things that you done to me but you fake so I don't care
 
[Verse 2]
Spend a lot of time by myself now
I been at this for a while you can tell now
Writing through the good times and the meltdowns
And somehow people finally found out
Soundcloud full of liars and bad songs
Instead of talkin boutcha live you just act hard
I really wonder what you like with ya mask off
So we can kick it I don't mind no not at all
One time for the realist
Keep an open mind and your business
Fuck fittin in be proud to be different
The crowd isn't shit I'd rather mock from a distance
'Cause everyone the same just a lie that they living
That's real shit
I know they feelin this
It's funny how they come around when you gettin big
Money really making sounds I ain't even rich
So what the fuck you waitin round for I'm in the crib
It's the same shit
Just a different day
I wanna make hits
Then be gettin paid
See fame isn't what I wish to gain
But it's the game isn't it
It's okay
So I hope you hear this and you understand
If I blow up to all my fans
We the same remember my name if ever I make it thank you for the helping hand
Yeah
 
[Chorus]
Everybody tryna talk to me
Get involved with me
Say wassup and I don't care
Even people who would bully me
Dap me up and think that I'm dope fuck I don't care
Everybody really lost it seems changing up when things ain't the same but I don't care
Yeah I already got over things that you done to me but you fake so I don't care
Everybody tryna talk to me
Get involved with me
Say wassup and I don't care
Even people who would bully me
Dap me up and think that I'm dope fuck I don't care
Everybody really lost it seems changing up when things ain't the same but I don't care
Yeah I already got over things that you done to me but you fake so I don't care
 

Free Hifi Internet

Hi, nice to meet you
I already forgot your name
You should be lucky I came
 
Sorry I'm late I just… didn't wanna come
(Is there wifi in here?)
No satisfaction with this human interaction
No satisfaction with this human interaction
 
All that talk is hurting in my brain
Can't you see I'm busy?
They say opposites attract
Well they don't know jack
Cos tonight I'd rather be in my room getting high on some wifi
 
I'm not your lady
So don't call me your baby
Ain't trying to hear what you're saying
(But if you're leaving) I'm staying
 
All that talk is hurting in my brain
All that chatter really doesn't matter
All that chatter really doesn't matter
Siri, find me an exit
 
Oh, what where you saying?
I wasn't really listening
Five, six, seven, eight
Here we go again, it's getting late
Cos tonight I'd rather be in my room getting high on some wifi
(Wifi)
 
Baby, baby, baby
I'm not your lady
Ain't trying to hear what you're saying
(But if you're leaving) I'm staying
 

Zion's Daughter

Zion's daughter, now your heart is full of joy
In a cradle in the manger lies the Holy Boy
Zion's daughter, with your sweet angelic smile
Holding in your arms the Christ Child, resting for a while
 
Now the world is waiting, people want to hear
What in Bethlehem had happened, that had brought
the Saviour near
Now high hopes start rising for another day
With eternal love and justice finally on the way
 
Zion's daughter, now your heart is full of joy
In a cradle in the manger lies the Holy Boy
Zion's daughter, with your sweet angelic smile
Holding in your arms the Christ Child, resting for a while
 
Zion's daughter, now your heart is full of joy
In a cradle in the manger lies the Holy Boy
Zion's daughter, with your sweet angelic smile
Holding in your arms the Christ Child, resting for a while
 
That's the way it happened many years ago
With the sky above a-shining in a wondrous glow
Now the world is waiting, people want to hear
What in Bethlehem had happened, that brought the Saviour near
 
Zion's daughter, now your heart is full of joy
In a cradle in the manger lies the Holy Boy
Zion's daughter, with your sweet angelic smile
Holding in your arms the Christ Child, resting for a while
 

Come Rain or Come Shine

I'm gonna love you like nobody's loved you
Come rain or come shine
High as a mountain and deep as a river
Come rain or come shine
I guess when you met me
It was just one of those things
But don't ever bet me
'Cause I'm gonna be true if you let me
 
You're gonna love me like nobody's loved me
Come rain or come shine
Happy together, unhappy together
And won't it be fine
Days may be cloudy or sunny
We're in or we're out of the money
But I'm with you always
I'm with you rain or shine
 

Old Devil Moon

l look at you and suddenly
Something in your eyes I see
Soon begins bewitching me
It's that old devil moon
That you stole from the skies
It's that old devil moon in your eyes
 
You and you glance make this romance
Too hot to handle
Stars in the night
Blazing their light
Can't hold a candle
To your razzle-dazzle
 
You've got me flyin' high and wide
On a magic carpet ride
Full of butterflies inside
Wanna cry, wanna croon
Wanna laugh like a loon
It's that old devil moon in your eyes
 
Just when I think
I'm free as a dove
Old devil moon
Deep in your eyes
Blinds me with love
 

Good Directions

I was sitting there selling turnips on a flatbed truck
Crunching on a pork rind when she pulled up
She had to be thinking, 'this is where rednecks come from'
She had Hollywood written on her license plate
She was lost and looking for the interstate
Needing directions and I was the man for the job
 
I told her way up yonder past the caution light
There's a little country store with an old Coke sign
You got to stop in and ask Miss Bell for some of her sweet tea
Then a left will take you to the interstate
But a right will bring you right back here to me
 
I was sitting there thinking about her pretty face
Kicking myself for not catching her name
I threw my hat and thought, you fool, that could have been love
I knew my old Ford couldn't run her down
She probably didn't like me anyhow
So I watched her disappear in a cloud of dust
 
I told her way up yonder past the caution light
There's a little country store with an old Coke sign
You got to stop in and ask Miss Bell for some of her sweet tea
Then a left will take you to the interstate
But a right will bring you right back here to me
 
Is this Georgia heat playing tricks on me
Or am I really seeing what I think I see
The woman of my dreams coming back to me
 
She went way up yonder past the caution light
Don't know why, but something felt right
When she stopped in and asked Miss Bell for some of her sweet tea
Mama gave her a big old glass and sent her right back here to me
 
Thank God for good directions and turnip greens
 

Oh, But I Do

You think I don't love you
Oh, but I do
How can I show that I do?
 
You think I don't get blue
Oh, but I do
Though I get lighthearted too
 
First I'm singing. then I'm sighing
Then I'm flying high above
 
You think I don't know why
Oh, but I do
I know that it's you I love
 

Good Morning Mister Echo

Mister Echo (Echo ... Echo ... Echo ... Echo ... Echo ... Echo)
 
Good mornin' (mornin' ... mornin') Mister Echo (Echo ... Echo ... Echo)
How are you today (today ... today ... today)
Good Mornin' (mornin' ... mornin') Mister Echo (Echo ... Echo ... Echo)
Won't you take my cares away (away ... away ... away)
 
Whenever I have trouble (trouble ... trouble ... trouble)
I know just what to do (to do ... to do ... to do)
They vanish like a bubble (bubble ... bubble ... bubble)
If I just count on you (on you ... on you ... on you)
 
I used to think that someone else
Could solve my problems, too
But now he's gone and I'm alone
So I'll come back to you (to you ... to you ... to you)
 
So when I'm feelin' lonely (lonely ... lonely ... lonely)
As lonely as can be (can be ... can be ... can be)
I call on Mister Echo (Echo ... Echo ... Echo)
'Cause he always talks to me (to me ... to me ... to me)

Mister Echo (Echo ... Echo ... Echo)
 
Are you listening?
 

Break Up with Him

Hey girl, wassup?
I know it's late but I knew you'd pick it up
Naw, I ain't drunk
Okay, maybe I do have a little buzz, but
That song came on and I just thought
What harm could come from one little call
I know you say you're taken but I say
Girl you're takin' too long
 
To tell him that it's over
Then bring it on over
Stringing him along any longer girl
Is just wasting precious time
Girl you know it can't wait
Rip it off just like a Band-Aid
The way you look at me, girl, you can't pretend
I know you ain't in love with him, break up with him
 
I know you don't wanna break his heart
But that ain't no good reason to be keeping us apart
Look, just tell him it's you, it ain't him
And maybe you can lie to him and say you'll still be friends
Whatever you got to say to get through to him
That you ain't in love
C'mon you can't deny that you and I
Kinda fit like a glove
 
So tell him that it's over
Then bring it on over
Stringing him along any longer girl
Is just wasting precious time
Girl you know it can't wait
Rip it off just like a Band-Aid
It ain't my business to be all up in
But I know you ain't in love with him, break up with him
I know that you so done with him
Break up with him, break up with him
 
You would've hung up by now
If you weren't thinking it too
No pressure whatever
Just do what you gotta do
But if I was you
 
I'd tell him that it's over
Then bring it on over
Stringing him along any longer girl
Is just wasting precious time
Girl you know it can't wait
Just rip it off just like a Band-Aid
Yeah, I know I said it but I'll say it again
I know you ain't in love with him, break up with him
The way you look at me girl you can't pretend
I know you ain't in love with him, break up with him
Just break up with him
 

In Love In Vain

It’s only human for anyone to want to be in love
But who wants to be in love in vain?
At night you hang around the house
And eat your heart out
And cry your eyes out
And rack your brain
 
You sit and wonder why anyone as wonderful as he
Should cause you such misery and pain
I thought that I would be in heaven
But I’m only up a tree
'Cause it’s just my luck to be in love in vain
 
You sit and wonder why anyone as wonderful as he

All Through the Day

All through the day, I dream about the night
I dream about the night, here with you
All through the day, I wish away the time
Until the time when I'm here with you
 
Down falls the sun, I run to meet you
The evening mist melts away
Down smiles the moon, And soon your lips recall
The kiss I dreamed of all through the day
 
Down falls the sun, I run to meet you
The evening mist melts away
Down smiles the moon, and soon your lips recall
The kiss I dreamed of all through the day
 

Passé

Can our love be passé
When you seem kind've lost without me
And I've that lonely look about me
How can it be?
 
Can our love be passé
When you still haunt familar places
And every dream of mine embraces
Your memory?
 
You try to dance with someone new
Darling, I do, too
But we're bored to tears
Why are you and I only passersby
Wasting precious years
 
Why can't we start over
Oh heaven knows there must be some way
A love like ours just can't be passé, sweetheart

Devil In Paradise

I wanna be where the sun don't shine
Where the birds don't sing
And the kids don't smile
They say: I saw the Devil in paradise
 
I wanna be where the night is day
Where the roses die
And the thorns ain't fake
And they say: I saw the Devil with a smilin' face
 
I'll never go back to California
I'll never go back to Hollywood
Don't wanna feel no morning sun
Burn my shadow til the day is over and done
I'll never go back to Hollywood
 
I'll never go back to California
I'll never get old in them lonely hills
It's like the sun got frozen in an ice cold sky
Trapped there laughing when the stars don’t shine
I’d (rather) die than live for them dollar bills
 
I wanna be where the sun don’t shine
Where the birds don’t sing
And the kids don’t smile
And they say: I saw the Devil in paradise
 
I wanna be where the night is day
Where the roses die
And thorns ain’t fake
And they say: I saw the Devil with a smiling face
 
I wanna be where the shotguns spray
Where God gets high
And the priests don’t pray
And they say: I saw the Devil in a diamond chain
 
I wanna be where the sun don’t shine
Where the birds don’t sing
And the kids don’t smile
And they say: I saw the Devil in paradise
 
After all that I
After all that I did for you...
After all that I
After all that I did for you…
 
Sipping French wine with the Devil
Pretty thing slip in my ride said the Devil
Coastin’ by the Hollywood sign with the Devil
Getting that money on time with the Devil
Mama said don’t you go sign with the Devil
Titties out sniffing snow white with the Devil
Clever guys lying, and I’m buying- say I’m “special”
Said he sent the cheque, but tide me over with a bezel
Promised me the penthouse, got me on the lowest level
Running from the repo’ when you thought you was a rebel
How they gonna tow you while you sleeping in the rental?
No one gonna know you- better show him your (potential)
 
After all that I
After all that I did for you...
After all that I
After all that I did for you…
