Richard Cory

Whenever Richard Cory went down town,
We people on the pavement looked at him:
He was a gentleman from sole to crown,
Clean favored, and imperially slim.
 
And he was always quietly arrayed,
And he was always human when he talked;
But still he fluttered pulses when he said,
'Good-morning,' and he glittered when he walked.
 
And he was rich—yes, richer than a king—
And admirably schooled in every grace:
In fine, we thought that he was everything
To make us wish that we were in his place.
 
So on we worked, and waited for the light,
And went without the meat, and cursed the bread;
And Richard Cory, one calm summer night,
Went home and put a bullet through his head.
 

An Old Story

Strange that I did not know him then.
That friend of mine!
I did not even show him then
One friendly sign;
 
But cursed him for the ways he had
To make me see
My envy of the praise he had
For praising me.
 
I would have rid the earth of him
Once, in my pride...
I never knew the worth of him
Until he died.
 

The Whistling Gypsy

1.The Gypsy Rover came over the hill,
Down thru the valley so shady;
He whistled and he sang
til the greenwood rang,
And he won the heart of a lady.
 
A dee do a dee do die day,
A dee do a dee day-o
He whistled and he sang
Til the greenwood rang,
And he won the heart of a lady.
 
2. She left her father's castle gate,
she left her fair young lover;
She left her servants
And her estate
to follow the gypsy rover.
 
A dee do a dee do die day,
A dee do a dee day-o
She left her servants
And her estate
to follow the gypsy rover.
 
3. She left behind her velvet gown,
And shoes of Spanish leather;
They whistled and they sang
Till the greenwood rang,
As they rode off together.
 
A dee do a dee do die day,
A dee do a dee day-o
They whistled and they sang
Till the greenwood rang,
As they rode off together.
 
4. Last night she slept on a goose feather bed
With silken sheets for cover;
Tonight she sleeps
On the cold, cold ground
Beside her gypsy lover.
 
A dee do a dee do die day,
A dee do a dee day-o
Tonight she sleeps
On the cold, cold ground
Beside her gypsy lover.
 
5. Her father saddled up his fastest steed
And roamed the valleys all over
Sought his daughter
At great speed
And the whistling gypsy rover.
 
A dee do a dee do die day,
A dee do a dee day-o
Sought his daughter
At great speed
And the whistling gypsy rover.
 
6. He came at last to a mansion fine,
Down by the river Claydee
And there was music
And there was wine,
For the gypsy and his lady.
 
A dee do a dee do die day,
A dee do a dee day-o
And there was music
And there was wine,
For the gypsy and his lady.
 
7. 'He is no gypsy, my father' she said
'But lord of these lands all over,
And I shall stay
'til my dying day
With my whistling gypsy rover.'
 
A dee do a dee do die day,
A dee do a dee day-o
And I shall stay
'til my dying day
With my whistling gypsy rover.'
 

One

Okay, Mr. Mix
 
One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
Two can be as bad as one
It's the loneliest number since the number one
 
'No' is the saddest experience you'll ever know
Yes, it's the saddest experience you'll ever know
Because one is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
One is the loneliest number that you'll ever know
 
It's just no good anymore since you went away
Now I spend my time just making rhymes of yesterday
 
Because one is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
One is the loneliest number that you'll ever know
One is the loneliest number
One is the loneliest number
One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
 
One is the loneliest number, much much worse than two
One is the number divided by two
 

When Legends Rise

Legs are tied, these hands are broken
Alone I try with words unspoken
Silent cry, my breath is frozen
With blinded eyes, I fear myself!
 
It's burning down, it's burning high
When ashes fall the legends rise
We burned it out oh my oh why
When ashes fall the legends rise
 
My throat is dry, my vision's fading
I'm paralyzed and left here waiting
Taking time just one step forward
Won't lose my mind, I'm here to stay
 
It's burning down, it's burning high
When ashes fall the legends rise
We burned it out oh my oh why
When ashes fall the legends rise
 
Whoa…....Legends rise
Whoa........Legends rise
 
Legends rise Legends rise
 
It's burning down, it's burning high
When ashes fall the legends rise
We burned it out oh my oh why
When ashes fall the legends rise
 
Whoa…....Legends rise
Whoa........Legends rise
 

My Mothers Eyes

I can’t believe you love me
After all the things I’ve done
I think I’ve been the devil
Since the day that I’ve turned one
Like when I stole your money
Just to buy a pack of gum
I know it wasn’t funny
Can’t believe I was so dumb
 
Pre-Chorus:
I blame it on my age
But even now, I’m not so young
I’m still stuck in my ways
I can’t believe what I’ve become
Somehow, you feel the same
I guess that’s motherly love
Motherly love
 
Wish I could find the piece in me
To see the good things that you see
It’s not that easy
 
Chorus:
But if I saw me through your eyes
Maybe I could find a way
To forgive all of the lies
And the stupid things I say
And if I could realize
That it’s your blood that I bleed
Maybe I could love myself
Like the way that you love me
 
Post-Chorus:
If I saw me through your eyes
Your eyes…
Through your eyes…
Through my mother’s eyes
 
I can’t believe you love me
After all the things I’ve did
Like when I said
I hated you when we were in Madrid
Like when I didn’t answer
You cause I was on the road
But you cooked my favorite dinner
For me right when I get home
 
Pre-Chorus:
I blame it on my age
But even now, I’m not so young
I’m still stuck in my ways
I can’t believe what I’ve become
Somehow, you feel the same
I guess that’s motherly love
Motherly love
 
Wish I could find the piece in me
To see the good things that you see
It’s not that easy
 
Chorus:
But if I saw me through your eyes
Maybe I could find a way
To forgive all of the lies
And the stupid things I say
And if I could realize
That it’s your blood that I bleed
Maybe I could love myself
Like the way that you love me
 
Post-Chorus:
If I saw me through your eyes
Your eyes…
Through your eyes…
Through my mother’s eyes
 
Bridge:
Through my mother’s eyes
Through my mother’s eyes
Through my mother’s eyes
 
Chorus:
But if I saw me through your eyes
Maybe I could find a way
To forgive all of the lies
And the stupid things I say
And if I could realize
That it’s your blood that I bleed
Maybe I could love myself
Like the way that you love me
 
Post-Chorus:
If I saw me through your eyes
Your eyes…
Through your eyes…
Through my mother’s eyes
 

Après coups

Coup de mou, coup de toi
Coup partout, coup de froid
Mou de nous, moi et toi
J'suis fou de vous, toi la-bas
Coup de blues, j'vois plus le lendemain
Après une binouze, un verre de vin
Coup d'un soir, coup de main
Soul de boire, coup de rein
Soul de boire, coup de rein
C'était nous, ça valait rien
C'était fou mais c'était bien
J'veux plus de tout ça, de nos disputes
Où est-ce qu'on va, j'ai peur d'la chute
Où est-ce qu'on va, j'ai peur d'la chute
Qu'est-ce tu fous dans la salle de bain
J'tombe dans le trou, toi t'offres tes seins
Coup de coeur, coup de fil
Et si j'en pleure j'irais voir d'autres filles
Et si j'en pleure j'irais voir d'autres filles
 
On aurait pu s'aimer et bien le faire
Ou s'laisser aller après d'autres verres
On aurait pu rêver mais on se perds
Est-ce qu'on doit arrêter ou finir à terre ?
Est-ce qu'on doit arrêter ou finir à terre ?
 
Ramènes pas ta pomme, dans la salle de bain
Je parais cet homme lui, qui m'aime bien
Il me dit je t'aime, je me ressens vivre
Toi t'es avec ta bouteille, y'a plus qu'elle qui te rend ivre
Y'a plus qu'elle qui te rend ivre
Verre sur verre en mélalcolique, je te perds ça tombe à pic
Tu bois ton jean, moi j'le rejoins
Il enlève mon jean et elle mes seins
Il enlève mon jean et elle mes seins
 
On aurait pu s'aimer et bien le faire
Ou s'laisser aller après d'autres verres
On aurait pu rêver mais on se perds
Est-ce qu'on doit arrêter ou finir à terre ?
Est-ce qu'on doit arrêter ou finir à terre ?
On aurait pu s'aimer et bien le faire
Ou s'laisser aller après d'autres verres
On aurait pu rêver mais on se perds
On aurait pu rêver mais on se perds
Est-ce qu'on doit arrêter ou finir à terre ?
 
Est-ce qu'on doit arrêter ou finir à terre ?
 
Ou finir à terre
 

Poupée Russe

Parle moi de ton ancien temps
Celui qui fait ce que t'es maintenant
Raconte moi, je veux tout savoir
Connaître tes bals de samedi soir
 
T'es d'une famille de six enfants
En plus t'as joué le rôle de la maman
Quand tu rentrais, c'était la foire
Pourtant, on était pas samedi soir
 
Alors ce soir ma poupée russe
Ce refrain est pour toi
Dans ton histoire, il y a des plus
Pas que des moins, babushka
Edith a trouvée son Marcel
Et jamais elle n'le lâchera
 
Un mythe Edith qu'est-ce qu'elle est belle, YA lyublyu tebya
YA lyublyu vas babushka y ded tanets sborka
YA lyublyu vas babushka y ded tanets sborka
 
Mama avait un sale caractère
Seul, elle aurait pu détruire cette terre
Papa se réfugiait dans les jeux
Mais au moins il avait l'air heureux
Toi, t'aurais remué ciel et terre
Pour le bonheur de ton frère
Mais dès que tu travaillais un peu
Le salaire était pour eux
 
Alors ce soir ma poupée russe
Ce refrain est pour toi
Dans ton histoire, il y a des plus
Pas que des moins, babooshka
Edith a trouvée son Marcel
Et jamais elle n'le lâchera
 
Un mythe Edith qu'est-ce qu'elle est belle, YA lyublyu tebya
YA lyublyu vas babushka y ded tanets sborka
YA lyublyu vas babushka y ded tanets sborka
YA lyublyu vas babushka y ded tanets sborka
YA lyublyu vas babushka, sans toi j'serai pas là
 

A cache-cache

A cache-cache
Malgré moi je joue
Tout contre toi
Pile ou face
Le tout pour le tout
Pour qui pour quoi
Jeux de glaces
Miroir des formes où l’on se voit
Sans qu’on sache
Qui l’autre est vraiment
Ni où il va
 
Nous nous sommes heurtés
A des murs et plus d’une fois
Brûlés fracassés
Il est tellement tard déjà
 
Carré d’as ou bien mauvaises cartes
Semble un miroir
Dans l’impasse réflexe d’automate
Et mauvaise foi
A cache-cache
Même joue contre joue
Ça va de soi
A la masse fatigué surtout
De ces jeux là
 
Nous nous sommes heurtés
A des murs et plus d’une fois
Brûlés fracassés
Il est tellement tard déjà
Nous avons aimé
A en mourir quelques fois
Pleuré espéré
Il est plus tard que tu ne crois
 

Un seul geste

Ni direction ni boussole ni signal ni repère
Rien qu’un banal jeu de rôle sans endroit ni envers
Trop de paroles en l’air et voilà qu’on s’y perd
Où aller que faut-il faire ?
Une main tendue une épaule une halte nécessaire
Dans cette course veine et folle aux bonheurs éphémères
Trop d’amour délétère de retour en arrière
Comment voir un peu plus clair
 
Un seul geste pourrait-il faire apparaître
Au bout du chemin peut-être une porte ouverte
Suffirait-il d’un seul geste nous parler lâcher du lest
Essayer de nous connaître pour pouvoir renaître
 
Car tous les marqueurs s’affolent et le temps s’accélère
Nul part les mots qui consolent qui rassurent ou éclairent
Des couleurs une lumière quelques fleurs un feu vert
Un espoir qui pousse à faire
 
Le seul geste de laisser la porte ouverte
 
Pour que le malheur déserte nos coeurs et nos têtes
Suffirait-il d’un seul geste de la douceur qui s’apprête
A calmer les plaies secrètes chasser le mal être
 
Un seul geste
C’est peut-être
Ta porte ouverte
A franchir
Un seul geste
Pour renaître
Et qu’on arrête de souffrir
 

Seras-tu là ?

Et quand nos regrets viendront danser
Autour de nous, nous rendre fous
Seras-tu là ?
Pour nos souvenirs et nos amours
Inoubliables, inconsolables
Seras-tu là ?
Pourras-tu suivre là où je vais?
Sauras-tu vivre le plus mauvais?
La solitude, le temps qui passe
Et l'habitude, regarde-les
Nos ennemis, dis-moi que oui
Dis-moi que oui
 
Quand nos secrets n'auront plus cours
Et quand les jours auront passé
Seras-tu là ?
Pour, pour nos soupirs sur le passé
Que l'on voulait que l'on rêvait
Seras-tu là ?
Le plus mauvais
La solitude, le temps qui passe
Et l'habitude reqarde-les
Nos ennemis, dis-moi que oui
Dis-moi que oui ?
 

Quel dommage

Pas de grandes phrases
Mettons vos roses rouges dans un vase
Essayons de briser la glace
Car sur nos carapaces un ange passe
Et si personne ne bouge n’ôte son masque
Quel dommage !
J’entends la musique je revois le film
Tellement romantique de sommet en abîme
Les notes de piano sur les images
Un tel fiasco vraiment quel dommage
 
Retour en grâce
Qu’attendez-vous très cher que l’on fasse
 
Amendes honorables et voltes faces
Un autre tour de phrase
La même musique pour le même film
Si mélancolique déchirant mais sublime
Impossible et lasse pour les attaches
Du temps qui passe vraiment quel dommage
 
J’entends la musique
Et je nous revoie tellement romantique
Vous même autant que moi
Où sont les photos de ces visages
Si jeunes si beaux mon Dieu quel naufrage
Si jeunes si beaux mon Dieu quel dommage
 

La Nature C'est Pas Joli

La nature c’est pas joli
Les gros mangent les petits
Le slogan qui fait recette
Ôt’ toi d’là que je m’y mette
 
La nature c’est dégoûtant....
 
 

Train spécial

Dans ce décor crépusculaire
Malmené trop souvent
Par des courants des vents contraires
Il me reste peu de temps
Pour prendre avec toi le train spécial
Qui va nous emporter
Loin du désordre et peine capitale
Vers la lumière et la liberté
Laissons de côté nos logiciels
Pour mieux tourner la page
Lever les yeux revoir le ciel
Et toucher les nuages
Monte avec moi dans le train spécial
Il n’arrive qu’une fois
Destination intersidérale
Tenons-nous prêt départ immédiat
Monte avec moi dans le train spécial
C’est de première urgence
Car l’amour seul peut ouvrir le bal
Et nous accorder une dernière danse
 
Rien ne s’achève mais tout commence
Lâcher prise générale
Beauté de rêve mystère présence
Sous une pluie d’étoiles
Monte avec moi dans le train spécial
De l’aller sans retour
Destination intersidérale
Et pas question de faire demi-tour
Monte avec moi dans le train spécial
C’est de première urgence
Car l’amour seul peut ouvrir le bal
Et nous accorder une dernière danse
Monte avec moi dans le train spécial
De l’aller sans retour
 

Brumes

Noyées dans la brume
Les lignes s’effacent
Avec nos traces
Dans la nuit sans lune
Les temps se fondent
Avec nos ombres
Tout s’évapore
Un seul rêve me rend encore
 
Rien qu’un fantasme
Sur toi qui te cache
Toi qui te tais
As-tu vraiment existé
Disparu la crainte
Des comptes à rendre
Au goût de cendres
Trop loin hors d’atteinte
L’état de grâce des face à face
 
J’entends des voix
Se peut-il que ce soit toi ?
Montre ton visage
Nous avons plus d’âge
Mais tu te tais
Aurais-je tout inventé
Donne-moi un signe
La clé de l’énigme
Quel est mon crime
Aurais-tu tout oublié ?
 
Il n’y a plus d’étreintes
De cris de larmes
De mort dans l’âme
Juste quelques empreintes
Des portes closes
Un mal sans cause
 

Trois petits tours

C'est un garçon énigmatique
Un furet qui file entre les doigts
L'avez-vous vu passer par ici
Et repasser par là
Sans qu'il s'attarde une seule fois
Trois petits tours puis s'en va
Je n'sais pas s'il est sympathique
Par moment on dirait presque un chat
Jamais vous ne l'entendez venir
Et soudain il est là
Qui sourit ne parle pas
Trois petits tours et s'en va
Seul dans mon bouquin
Je crois comprendre ses absences
Et entendre dans ses silences
Battre son coeur
Il lui arrive d'être cynique
Comme un ours il inquiète et fait peur
Il faut juste ne pas forcer sa porte
Ne pas jouer au plus forte
 
Le laisser venir à soi
Trois petits tours et voilà
Seul dans mon bouquin
J’entends l’appel de son âme
Comme une douleur une larme
Un cri du coeur
 
Seul dans mon bouquin
J’entends l’appel de son âme
Comme une douleur une larme
Un cri du coeur
 
J’aimerais qu’il nous joue sa musique
Et lui jouer la mienne aussi parfois
Mais tant pis s’il n’est pas disponible
Tous les rêves impossibles
Ont su nous donner le la
Trois petits tours et voilà
La vie l’amour c’est comme ça
Trois petits tours et s’en va
 

Ben 10 Intro (French)

Tout a commencé avec un mystérieux bracelet
C'est super d'avoir de supers pouvoirs à son poignet
Il est tellement cool qu'avec lui on ne s'ennuie jamais
Ben Ten
 
Si un jour vous le croisez, ne soyez pas surpris
Il se transforme d'un seul coup et sans aucun souci
Gluant, rapide ou rampant il reste notre ami
Ben Ten
 
Ses pouvoirs en poche, il est sur la balle
Pour nous il se bat bien contre le mal
La peur, les ennuis, il s'en fiche pas mal
Il sauvera la Terre d'un coup de poing final
Ben Ten
 

Un mal qui fait du bien

C’est déjà loin
La croisée des chemins
Le pied de nez du destin
Si troublant et soudain
Un mal un bien
Pourquoi forcer la main
Pourquoi penser à demain
Tout est si incertain
 
La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la
 
Rien d’anodin
Un mal qui fait du bien
J’arrête là je me retiens
Ni dernier mot ni mot de la fin

Bergère

Bergère, jolie bergère
Au regard de clair matin
Offrant tes seins de lumière
Dans la paume de test mains
 
Bergère, jolie bergère
Aux senteurs de romarin
Bergère, jolie bergère
Vont le corps et le parfum
 
Bergère, jolie bergère
Tu parfumes les chemins
Butinant dans les bruyères
Telle un merle baladin
 
Bergère, jolie bergère
À petits pas de lutin
Bergère, jolie bergère
Sautillant les serpentins
 
Bergère, fille de la Terre
Rose rouge sans jardin
Raison racine de guerre
Des campagnards de demain
 
Bergère, jolie bergère
Tu peux transformer la faim
En faisant des larmes pierres
En faisant des pierres pain
 
Bergère, jolie bergère
En lissant les lendemains
Bergère, jolie bergère
Tu façonnes le destin
 
Bergère, jolie bergère
Rose rouge sans chagrin
Bergère, jolie bergère
Force d'une aube sans frein
 
Bergère, jolie bergère
Rose rouge sans jardin
Raison racine de guerre
Des campagnards de demain
 
Bergère, jolie bergère
Tu peux transformer la faim
En faisant des larmes pierres
En faisant des pierres pain
 
Raison racine de guerre
Des campagnards de demain
 

Long Kiss Goodnight

[Intro: Puff Daddy & Notorious B.I.G]
Mmmmmmmmm-HMM
See.. [echoes]
I told you.. [echoes]
 
See, I told y'all muh'fuckers
Yo yo.. that stupid nigga man
I told y'all to stop!
He fucked up, yo..
I pray for you to stop
Yo, yo yo yo, yo.. yo.. yo..
Yo, yo yo yo, yo..
But no, you didn't stop
Yo.. yo..
And now, we won't stop
 
[Chorus: The Notorious B.I.G.]
Time, time for you to die
As I kiss.. yo'.. ass.. goodnight
 
[Verse 1: The Notorious B.I.G.]
I make your mouthpiece obese like Della Reese
When I release you lose teeth like Lil' Cease
Nigga please, blood floods your dungarees
And that's just the half of my warpath
Laugh now cry later, I rhyme greater
Than the average playa hater and spectators
Buy my CD twice, they see me in the streets
They be like, 'Yo he nice, but that's on the low though'
Be the cats with no dough, tried to play me at my show
I pull out .44s and go up in they clothes
Short-change niggas, snort 'caine niggas
Extortion came quicker, bought the Range nigga
Ya still tickle me, I used to be as strong as Ripple be
'Til Lil' Cease crippled me
Now I play hard like my girl's nipples be
The game sour like a pickle be, y'all know the rules
Move from BK to New Jeruz
Thinkin' 'bout all the planes we flew, bitches we ran through
Now the year's new, I lay my game flat
I want my spot back, take two
Motherfuckers mad 'cause I blew, niggas envious
Too many niggas on my dick, shit's strenuous
When my men bust, you just move with such stamina
Slugs missed ya, I ain't mad at cha (we ain't mad at cha)
Blood rushin', concussions ain't nothin'
Catch cases, come out fronting, smokin' something
Sippin' White Russians, bitch in the Benz bumpin'
I laced it with the basic, six TVs a system
Knockin' Ma$e shit, face it, we hard to hit
Guard ya shit, 'fore I stick you for your re-up
Wipe the pee up, lick shots, woke your seed up
Go in the ashtray, spark the weed up, long kiss
 
[Interlude: Puff Daddy]
Hell, we don’t give a fuck
We just absolutely don’t give a fuck
Because there ain’t no love here
There ain’t no love here
You know, we gon' keep doin' what we do
We gon' keep fuckin' you up
I'ma keep stomping your motherfucking head in
You fucking bitch
 
[Chorus: The Notorious B.I.G.]
Time, time for you to die
As I kiss.. yo'.. ass.. goodnight
Time, time for you to die
As I kiss.. yo'.. ass.. goodnight
 
[Verse 2: The Notorious B.I.G.]
Uhh.. I'm flamin' gats, aimin' at
These fuckin' maniacs, put my name in raps
What part the game is that? Like they hustle backwards
I smoke Backwoods and Dutchies, you can't touch me
Try to rush me, slugs go, touchy-touchy
You're bleedin' lovely, with yo' spirit above me
Or beneath me, your whole life you live sneaky
Now you rest eternally sleepy, you burn when you creep me
Rest where the worms and the weak be
My nine flies, baptize rap guys
With the Holy Ghost, I put holes in most
You hold your toast shaky, slippin' tryna break me
Look what you made me do, brains blew
My team in the marine-blue Six Coupé
Skied it out, weeded out, cleanin' out
The block for distances, givin' long kisses, bitch
 
[Interlude: Puff Daddy]
Only I can do now, I say a prayer for you
You know, that’s the only thing I can do, just pray for your mind
Because, see your mind is in control of your heart
Where it's supposed to be the other way around
Your heart has got to control your mind
So now, I have no feelings for you
You have made me cruel
 
[Chorus: The Notorious B.I.G.]
Time, time for you to die
As I kiss.. yo'.. ass.. goodnight
Time, time for you to die
As I kiss.. yo'.. ass.. goodnight
 
[Verse 3: The Notorious B.I.G.]
Frank White the menacin', Chron Chron's the medicine
I got the lettuce and you turn green like cucumber skin
Got the new Hummer in the summer when
I was a newcomer then, drugs and MAC-10s
Hugs from fake friends, make ends they hate you
Be broke, girls won't date you
That's why I relate to, choke your ass out 'til your face blue
Make you, open the safe too
No matter how you call it (how you call it), this brolic alcoholic
Like his weed greened out, like his brick solid
Distribute to kids who take heart like Valentine
Drink Ballantine all the time
Slugs hit your chest, tap your spine, flatline
Heard through the grapevine, you got fucked four times
Damn that three to nine, fucked you up for real though
Sling steel slow, as for remorse, we feel no
 
[Chorus: The Notorious B.I.G.]
Time, time for you to die
As I kiss.. yo'.. ass.. goodnight
Time, time for you to die
As I kiss.. yo'.. ass.. goodnight
Time, time for you to die
As I kiss.. yo'.. ass.. goodnight
 
[Outro: Puff Daddy]
See the fucked up thing is that I love you
You know what I’m saying
It’s just in my nature to love you
I can’t hate you
‘Cause its not in my nature to hate you
You know, I don’t know
Maybe I’m a different type of individual
But you have me on a line
And there’s a thin line between love and hate
And God-forbid I cross that line
Cause I’m not gon’ give a fuck
I’m telling you right motherfucking now
The shit that ya’ll done started
Is never gonna stop!
We are never gonna stop!
And we’re not talking about no other rappers
We’re talking about you, motherfucker!
You know who I’m talking to
We comin' for you
We comin' for you
Laughs
Feels so good
I'ma make you love me baby, baby
 

Somebody's Gotta Die

[Verse 1]
Ah, ah!
I'm sittin' in the crib dreamin' about Lear jets and coupes
The way Salt shoops and how they sell records like Snoop - (oops!)
I'm interrupted by a doorbell
3:52 - who the hell is this?
I gets up quick, cocks my shit
Stop the dogs from barkin', then proceed to walkin'
It's a face that I seen before
My nigga Sing, we used to sling on the 16th floor
Check it!
I look deeper; I see blood up on his sneakers
And his fist gripped a chrome four-fifth
So I dip
Nigga, is you creepin' or speakin'?
He tells me C-Rock just got hit up at the Beacon
I opens up the door, pitiful:
'Is he in critical?'
Retaliation for this one won't be minimal
'Cause I'm a criminal
Way before the rap shit
Bust the gat shit; Puff won't even know what happened
If it's done smoothly, silencers on the Uzi
Stash in the hooptie, my alibi: any cutie
With a booty that done fuck Big Pop
Head spinnin', reminiscin' 'bout my man C-Rock
 
[Chorus]
Somebody gotta die
If I go, you got to go
Somebody got to die
Let the gunshots blow
Somebody got to die
Nobody got to know
That I killed yo' ass in the mist, bitch
Somebody got to die
If I go, you got to go
Somebody gotta die
Let the gunshots blow
Somebody got to die
Nobody got to know
That I killed yo' ass in the mist, bitch
 
[Verse 2]
Uhh, fillin' clips, he explained our situation
Precisely, so we know exactly what we facin'
'Some kid named Jason
In a Honda station wagon
Was braggin', about how much loot and crack he stackin'
Rock had a grip so they formed up a clique
A small crew, 'round the time I was locked up with you'
'True indeed'
'But yo nigga, let me proceed
Don't fill them clips too high
Give them bullets room to breathe
Damn, where was I? Yeah
Went outta town, blew the fuck up
D-Roc went home
And Jay got stuck the fuck up
Hit him twice, caught him right for the Persian white
Pistol whipped his kids and taped up his wife (niggas is trife)
He figured Rock set 'em up, no question
Wet 'em up no less
Than 50 shots in his direction' (uhh)
'How many shots?'
'Man nigga, I seen mad holes'
'What kinda gats?'
'Hecklers, Kochs, and Calicos
But fuck that
I know where all them niggas rest at
In the buildin' hustlin'
And they don't be strapped
Supreme in black is downstairs, the engine runnin'
Find a bag to put the guns in
And c'mon if you're comin'
 
[Chorus]
Somebody gotta die
If I go, you got to go
Somebody got to die
Let the gunshots blow
Somebody got to die
Nobody got to know
That I killed yo' ass in the mist, bitch
Somebody got to die
If I go, you got to go
Somebody gotta die
Let the gunshots blow
Somebody got to die
Nobody got to know
That I killed yo' ass in the mist, bitch
 
[Verse 3]
Exchanged hugs and pounds before the throw down
How it's gon' go down?
Lay these niggas low-down
'Slow down, ah, fuck all that plannin' shit
Run up in they cribs and make the cats abandon ship!'
See niggas like you do ten-year bids
Miss the nigga they want and murder innocent kids
Not I
One nigga's in my eye, that's Jason
Ain't no slugs gonna be wasted
Revenge I'm tastin' at the tip of my lips
I can't wait to fill my clip in his hips
'Pass the chocolate, Thai!'
Sing ain't lie
There's Jason with his back to me
Talkin' to his faculty
I start to get a funny feeling
Put the mask on in case this nigga start squealin'
Scream his name out: ('Ay yo, playboy!')
Squeezed six, nothin' shorter
Nigga turned around holdin' his daughter
 

Alone With Everybody

Here in this room with you
Downstairs there is a party
But this is all I want to do
Been sipping this on for a minute
And I already know
We ain't gonna take this slow
We've been riding, now let me feel your body
Get into me, ain't nobody gotta know, no, no
Ain't nobody gotta know, no, no, no
 
The room is quiet, the music is loud
Can you break the silence and take me all the way?
You make me wanna stay
The room is quiet, the music is loud
Can you break the silence and take me all the way?
You make me wanna
Ain't nobody gotta know, no, no
Ain't nobody gotta know, no, no
Ain't nobody gotta know, no, no
 
No, no, no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no, no
 

A Little More

[Verse 1]
There you are with your college friends
You played in their marching band
I can't help but wish I knew you then
But I guess I know you now
It looks as if I've stumbled right into the palm of your hand
 
[Chorus]
Hey you
Hey Mister knock on my door
I'm sorry that I've been emotions galore
Am I crazy for wanting a little bit more?
A little more of you
A little more, a little more of you
This feeling's hard to ignore
Please say you'll never get bored
Can you blame me for wanting a little bit more?
A little more of you
A little more, a little more of you
 
[Verse 2]
Say that it's the same
Take a drill right to my brain
Oh the way you did just yesterday
I guess I get it now
It looks as if I've stumbled right into the palm of your hand
 
[Chorus]
Hey you
Hey Mister knock on my door
I'm sorry that I've been emotions galore
Am I crazy for wanting a little bit more?
A little more of you
A little more, a little more of you
This feeling's hard to ignore
Please say you'll never get bored
Can you blame me for wanting a little bit more?
A little more of you
A little more, a little more of you
 
[Outro]
Hey yeah, hey yeah
Ooh
Hey yeah, hey yeah
Ooh
Hey yeah, hey yeah
Ooh
Hey yeah, hey yeah
A little more of you
A little more, a little more of you
 

Get It

[Intro: Clair de Lune by Claude Debussy]
 
[Chorus: Will.i.am]
Life is so wonderful
Life is so beautiful
Life is amazing
Life can be terrible
Life is unbearable
Life is just crazy
Life is terrific, it's also horrific
It's a magnificent painting
If life is a gift
If life is a bitch then I'm bout to get it
I'm bout to get it
I'm bout to get it, get it all
I'm bout to get it
I'm bout to get it, get it all
I'm bout to, I'm bout to get it, get it
Get it, get it, get it, get it, get it, get it all
 
[Verse 1: Will.i.am]
All I wanna do is win
Man I've been winning since way back when
In my mind's eye had a Maybach back then
Fast forward now, Maybach's what I'm in
Getting out the project was the project
Momma said 'progress is the process'
I was paid less shopped at the Payless
Now my ass is living in a nice address
Feeling like a champ living up [?]
Way back when I just wanted dope feeling
A Kangol and a tracksuit from Adidas
Now we over here selling 80,000 seaters
Now they wanna see us when we coming to the town
Cause we number one with the champion sound
We be falling up, never falling down
Keep it at a high level, elevated ground
 
[Chorus: Will.i.am]
Life is so wonderful
Life is so beautiful
Life is amazing
Life can be terrible
Life is unbearable
Life is just crazy
Life is terrific, it's also horrific
It's a magnificent painting
If life is a gift
If life is a bitch then I'm bout to get it
I'm bout to get it
I'm bout to get it, get it all
I'm bout to get it
I'm bout to get it, get it all
I'm bout to, I'm bout to get it, get it
Get it, get it, get it, get it, get it, get it all
 
[Verse 2: Apl.de.ap]
Y'all need to focus on this
Apl was ESL in this bitch
That means English is my second language
From Angeles to Los Angeles
No handouts, they don't wanna hand me shit
Now they analyze me calling all the analysts
Now they realize that I'm the catalyst
On the Bob Marley shit, I'm the activist
And no I'm not talking bout no cannabis
Born Filipino, born philanthropist
I know I wouldn't be the guy bout the bullshit
No [?] from the dump all about the school shit
You two know where the edge is
Gotta have knowledge, know where the ledge is
Bridging the gap, close all the [?]
Ordinary people we the John Legends
 
[Chorus: Will.i.am]
Life is so wonderful
Life is so beautiful
Life is amazing
Life can be terrible
Life is unbearable
Life is just crazy
Life is terrific, it's also horrific
It's a magnificent painting
If life is a gift
If life is a bitch then I'm bout to get it
I'm bout to get it
I'm bout to get it, get it all
I'm bout to get it
I'm bout to get it, get it all
I'm bout to, I'm bout to get it, get it
Get it, get it, get it, get it, get it all
 

Bird in a Cage

It's safe and quiet, all you've ever known
You didn't choose it but you call it home
You wouldn't have these wings
If you weren't meant to fly
It's where you learn to sing
I'll meet you on the outside
 
Bird in a cage
Don't know that you were born to fly away
The world's a bigger place
Than all the fear you face
It's hard to explain
To a bird in a cage
 
You dreamed you heard a song
Outside the open door
They told you it was wrong
So you don't dream no more
 
They tell you to believe
What they believe is right
Will you choose fight
Or flight?
 
For a bird in a cage
Don't know that you were born to fly away
The world's a bigger place
Than all the fear you face
It's hard to explain
To a bird in a cage
 
Same hands that hold your prayer
Same hands that keep you there
You try to shift the blame
When there's nowhere to put the pain but
 
Who you are is back behind it
And I believe that you can find it
When the dark feels like it's darker
You've tried easy, now try harder to chase
 
You're not a bird in a cage
You were born to fly away
The world's a bigger place
Than all the fear you face
And you were never made
Are we all birds in a cage?
(Birds in a cage)
Are we all born this way?
(Are we born this way?)
We try not to think about it
What we would be without it
You were never made
(And you were never made)
To be a bird in a cage
(To be a bird in a cage)
You were born to fly away
The world's a bigger place
Than all the fear you face
And you were never made
To be a bird in a cage
 

Rolling Papers 2

[Intro]
Nigga, my motherfucker's life depends on this shit
Do this shit for my son
Turn me up
So I can hear myself a little more in the headphones
 
[Verse 1]
Came from the bottom, started this out with nothing
Turned the fam in my squad, and turn this thing into something
I grab a cone and I stuff it, never gonna get enough
Depending on how its going, we only gonna get tougher
I done seen people suffer, hate turned into love
Lost some people to get here
But they watching us from up above
On the road, hardly ever home
And money caught one in the dome
Now its hard to even pick up my phone
Leave me alone, I'll be in my zone
I'm getting grown but not too grown to let my feelings show
Anything you want, you can get, you gotta build it tho
I blew up quick and lost some shit
But now I'm dealing those
There's consequences to every decisions
Good or wrong, just do the best with time you're given and live strong
Give your all 'cause a man gon' be a man
And do what he gotta do
Baby, this is rolling papers two
(This is rolling papers two)
(This is rolling papers two)
 
[Chorus]
Imma roll it, roll it, Imma light it, light it
When it's time to make a change, I ain't gonna fight it, fight it
(Imma roll it, roll it, Imma light it, light it
When it's time to make a change, I ain't gonna fight it, fight it)
 
[Verse 2]
Yeah, all of the fame just comes with the game
It's a gift and the curse when everybody know your name
How do you make a million dollars and still stay the same
How do you make a hundred millions and still sane
You got the money, the clothes, the cars, the girls
Trying to do better, but all the shit in the world
Something regular would you prefer?
But it's cool, it's too much pressure, you think you should curve
On the verge, packing up and going back to where I came from
Tired of these rappers, I only run in the lane once
Tired of all these girls, we all fucking the same ones
I ain't giving chances no more, I already gave one
Getting money, you better save some
Don't be afraid to make mistakes 'cause you gotta make some
It takes time, but a man gon be a man and do what he gotta do
Baby, this is rolling papers two
(This is rolling papers two)
(This is rolling papers two)
 
[Chorus]
Imma roll it, roll it, Imma light it, light it
When it's time to make a change, I ain't gonna fight it, fight it
(Imma roll it, roll it, Imma light it, light it
When it's time to make a change, I ain't gonna fight it, fight it)
 
[Verse 3]
No turning back, I'm learning that
If you ever show someone love, you deseves it back
If you got a ounces of paper, you should burn it back
And if you ever do takes a loss, you can earn it back
Never slack, never overreact, let your money stack
Look at where you're going and where you at
You gon get there if you work hard
When you make it, you'll get exactly what you work for
I want more, couple cars in my garage
And mansions with marble floors
Above it all, open my doors
Couple plaques on the wall
Hoop court where my friends could ball
It may sounds strange but Imma need it all
When I spend some afar, I hit the road when I get the car
Got some family members that I don't see at all
It pays off 'cause a man gon be a man and do what he gotta do
Baby, this is rolling papers two
(This is rolling papers two)
(This is rolling papers two)
 
[Chorus]
Imma roll it, roll it, Imma light it, light it
When it's time to make a change, I ain't gonna fight it, fight it
(Imma roll it, roll it, Imma light it, light it
When it's time to make a change, I ain't gonna fight it, fight it)
 

Penthouse

[Intro: Wiz Khalifa]

[Verse 1: Wiz Khalifa]
Everything gone a bitch, that means all on you
I rock diamonds, she rock diamonds on her collar too
Ball all night like coups, I got guys that shoot
I might drop my roof, I might light my doob
Bitches getting curved don't deserve my juice
Police getting swerved don't deserve no proof
Drinking in the booth, smoking in the booth
Your man need a clue, I don't respect the rules
 
[Chorus: Wiz Khalifa]
Pushing that button, P, penthouse floor I go up
Pushing that button, P, penthouse floor I go up
Nigga got gas, I roll up, nigga got drinks, I pour up
Nigga got gas, I roll up, nigga got drinks, I pour up
Pushing that button, P, penthouse floor I go up
Pushing that button, P, penthouse floor I go up
Nigga got gas, I roll up, nigga got drinks, I pour up
Nigga got gas, I roll up, nigga got drinks, I pour up
[Verse 2: Snoop Dogg]
Jumped off the pliz-ane with a bad bitch and her friend, mane
We in the cut, and she thick as fuck, P with me, so you know what's up
Ayo B, C-O-D
Your BM be DMing D-O-G
She stumbled on to some grown shit, old as nigga with a long dick
Chanika, Tanika, Tenisa, Juanita
This a secret so I had to sneak her
Cherry and Terry ate berries, 'cause Ares

Gang gang, get cheese (cheese), pinpoint, pop Ps
Marble floor for these alligators, now hit the P on that elevator
 
[Chorus: Wiz Khalifa]
Pushing that button, P, penthouse floor I go up
Pushing that button, P, penthouse floor I go up
Nigga got gas, I roll up, nigga got drinks, I pour up (won't lie)
Nigga got gas, I roll up, nigga got drinks, I pour up (won't lie, P)
Pushing that button, P, penthouse floor I go up (P)
Pushing that button, P, penthouse floor I go up (P)
Nigga got gas, I roll up, nigga got drinks, I pour up (won't lie)
Nigga got gas, I roll up, nigga got drinks, I pour up
 
[Outro: Snoop Dogg]

Yeah
Presidential penthouse suite, overlooking the whole motherfucking city
Ya digg
Gang gang
Gang gang
Gang gang
Gang gang
Gang gang
Gang gang
Gang gang gang gang
 

Paint a Vulgar Picture

At the record company meeting
On their hands - a dead star
And oh, the plans they weave
And oh, the sickening greed
 
At the record company party
On their hands - a dead star
The sycophantic slags all say :
'I knew him first, and I knew him well'
 
Re-issue! Re-package! Re-package!
Re-evaluate the songs
Double-pack with a photograph
Extra track (and a tacky badge)
 
A-list, playlist
'Please them, please them!'
'Please them!'
(sadly, this was your life)
 
But you could have said no
If you'd wanted to
You could have said no
If you'd wanted to
 
BPI, MTV, BBC
'Please them! Please then!'
(sadly this was your life)
 
But you could have said no
If you'd wanted to
You could have walked away
...Couldn't you?
 
I touched you at the soundcheck
You had no real way of knowing
In my heart I begged 'Take me with you...
I don't care where you're going... '
 
But to you I was faceless
I was fawning, I was boring
Just a child from those ugly new houses
Who could never begin to know
 
Who could never really know
Oh...
 
Best of! Most of!
Satiate the need
Slip them into different sleeves!
Buy both, and feel deceived
 
Climber - new entry, re-entry
World tour! ('media whore')
'Please the Press in Belgium!'
(This was your life...)
 
And when it fails to recoup ?
Well, maybe:
You just haven't earned it yet, baby
 
I walked a pace behind you at the soundcheck
You're just the same as I am
What makes most people feel happy
Leads us headlong into harm
 
So, in my bedroom in those 'ugly new houses'
I danced my legs down to the knees
But me and my 'true love'
Will never meet again...
 
At the record company meeting
On their hands - at last! - A dead star !
But they can never taint you in my eyes
No, they can never touch you now
 
No, they cannot hurt you, my darling
They cannot touch you now
But me and my 'true love'
Will never meet again
