She is not scared to die
The best things in life drive her to cry
Crucify then learn

(Take so much away from inside you
Makes no sense, you know he can't guide you
He's your effing shoulder to lean on
Be strong)
Sit and watch me burn
(Take so much away from inside you
Makes no sense, you know he can't guide you
He's your effing shoulder to lean on
Be strong)

She's taught to believe, that it will be OK
Look at your face
Scarred in dismay
Now times have changed, and so have you
I think I'd rather crucify than learn

(Take so much away from inside you
Makes no sense, you know he can't guide you
He's your effing shoulder to lean on
Be strong)
Sit and watch me burn
(Take so much away from inside you
Makes no sense, you know he can't guide you
He's your effing shoulder to lean on
Be strong)

I'd like to take you down
And show you deep inside my life
My inner workin'
So smell and lack of inner pride
To touch upon the surface is not for what it seems
I take away my problems
But only in my dreams

Take so much away from inside you
Makes no sense, you know he can't guide you
He's your effing shoulder to lean on
Be strong

Take so much away from inside you
Makes no sense, you know he can't guide you
He's your effing shoulder to lean on
Be strong

Crucify the learn
(Take so much away from inside you
Makes no sense, you know he can't guide you
He's your efing shoulder to lean on
Be strong)
Sit and watch me burn
(Take so much away from inside you
Makes no sense, you know he can't guide you
He's your effing shoulder to lean on
Be strong)

Crucify the learn
(Take so much away from inside you
Makes no sense, you know he can't guide you
He's your effing shoulder to lean on
Be strong)
Sit and watch me burn
(Take so much away from inside you
Makes no sense, you know he can't guide you
He's your effing shoulder to lean on
Be strong)

Crucify the learn
(Take so much away from inside you
Makes no sense, you know he can't guide you
He's your effing shoulder to lean on
Be strong)
Sit and watch me burn
(Take so much away from inside you
Makes no sense, you know he can't guide you
He's your effing shoulder to lean on
Be strong)

Crucify the learn
(Take so much away from inside you
Makes no sense, you know he can't guide you
He's your effing shoulder to lean on
Be strong)
Sit and watch me burn

You had a plenty money 1922
You let other women make a fool of you

Why don't you do right
Like some other men do?
Get out of here and get me some money too?

You're sitting down wondering what it's all about
You ain't got no money they will put you out

Why don't you do right
Like some other men do?
Get out of here and get me some money too?

If you had prepared twenty years ago
You wouldn't be a-wanderin' now from door to door

Why don't you do right
Like some other men do?
Get out of here and get me some money too?

I fell for you jiving and I took you in
Now all you've got to offer me is a drink of gin

Why don't you do right
Like some other men do?
Get out of here and get me some money too?

Why don't you do right
Like some other men do?
Like some other men do?

So, I'm Nothing.
You Took Something From Me, Now You've Disappeared.
You're Right Where I Want You.
You Said You Wanted It, Alright.

 

No ! Its Not Alright 
No ! Its Not Alright 
No ! Its Not Alright 
No...


Now I'm Something, And Your Head Is In My Closet.
Dead Forever, They'll Never Search It...
Out Of Sight

 

No ! Its Not Alright 
No ! Its Not Alright 
No ! Its Not Alright 
No...

 

I'm Cold, So Cold, Ohh, Ohh 
I'm Cold, So Cold, Ohh, Ohh 

 

If i Find It 
If i Find It 


NO ! NO WAY ! 

NO ! NO WAY ! 

NO ! NO WAY ! 

NO ! NO WAY !

There was a time
When I was in a hurry as you are
I was like you
There was a day
When I just had to tell my point of view
I was like you
 
Now I don't mean to make you frown
No, I just want you to slow down
 
Have you never been mellow?
Have you never tried
To find a comfort from inside you?
 
Have you never been happy
Just to hear your song?
Have you never let someone else be strong?
 
Running around as you do
With your head up in the clouds
I was like you
Never had time to lay back
Kick your shoes off, close your eyes
I was like you
 
Now you're not hard to understand
You need someone to take your hand, hey
 
Have you never been mellow?
Have you never tried
To find a comfort from inside you?
 
Have you never been happy
Just to hear your song?
Have you never let someone else be strong?

Ah, do you, do you, do you, do you feel the power ?
Do you, do you feel, do you, do you feel ?
Ah, do you, do you, do you, do you feel the power ?

I'll tell you straight up
When it comes to real love
My arms are open and my heart knows the score
I've lived and learned now
Sometimes got burned out
But every time I pick myself off the floor
You need good loving like a desert needs the rain
Never make your heart complain
You keep on running like a river to the sea
Look no further boy 'coz I've got just what you need

You need the power of a woman
Of a woman
Taking over you, that's what love can do
The power of a woman
Let me take control
Body mind and soul

Ah, do you, do you, do you, do you feel the power ?
Do you, do you feel the power ?

Please don't misunderstand
I need a strong man
Who'll be my soldier, never give up the fight
I've gotta know now
Baby, let me show you how
Can you keep my fire burning morning to night ?
You're always caught up in a one way love affair
Never with your heart on the ground
I've got the real thing
Come and get it if you dare
Let me tell you baby, don't you know I'm the one

You need the power of a woman
Of a woman
Taking over you, that's what love can do
The power of a woman
Of a woman
Let me take control
Body mind and soul

Ah, do you, do you, do you, do you feel the power ?
Do you, do you feel, do you feel the power ?
Ah, do you, do you, do you, do you feel the power ?

Give me the power

You need good loving like a desert needs the rain
Never make your heart complain
You keep on running like a river to the sea
Look no further boy 'coz I've got just what you need

You need the power of a woman
Taking over you, that's what love can do
The power of a woman
Let me take control
Body mind and soul

Ah, do you, do you, do you, do you feel the power ?
Do you feel it baby, do you feel the power ?
Ah, do you, do you, do you, do you feel the power ?
Do you feel it ?

Power of a woman
Taking over you, that's what love can do
Power of a woman

I'm sailing away, set an open course for the virgin sea
Cause I've got to be free, free to face the life that's ahead of me
On board, I'm the captain, so climb aboard
We'll search for tomorrow on every shore
And I'll try, oh Lord, I'll try to carry on

I look to the sea, reflections in the waves spark my memory
Some happy, some sad
I think of childhood friends and the dreams we had
We lived happily forever, so the story goes
But somehow we missed out on that pot of gold
But we'll try best that we can to carry on

A gathering of angels appeared above my head
They sang to me this song of hope, and this is what they said
They said come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me now
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me

Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me now
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me

I thought that they were angels, but to my surprise
We climbed aboard their starship, we headed for the skies
Singing come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me now
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me

Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away, come sail away

I must've been through about a million girls
I'd love 'em and I'd leave 'em alone
I didn't care how much they cried, no sir
Their tears left me cold as a stone
 
But then I fooled around and fell in love
I fooled around and fell in love
I fooled around and fell in love
Fooled around and fell in love
 
It used to be when I'd see a girl that I liked
I'd get out my book and write down her name
But when the grass got a little greener on the other side
I'd just tear out that page
 
But then I fooled around and fell in love
I fooled around and fell in love, since I met you baby
I fooled around and fell in love
I fooled around and fell in love
 
Free on my own that's the way I used to be
But since I met you baby, love's got a hold on me
(Fooled around and fell in love) Woo it's got a hold on me now, yeah
(Fooled around and fell in love) I can't let go of you baby
(Fooled around and fell in love) I can't stop loving you now
(Fooled around and fell in love) Hey, 'cause I fooled around
 
I fooled around (fooled around)
I fooled around (fooled around)
I fooled around (fooled around)
(Fooled around and fell in love)
Fooled around, fooled around, yes, I did
(Fooled around) I fooled around
(Fooled around) Oh, I fooled
(Fooled around and fell in love)
I fooled around, I fell in love
(Fooled around) Hey-hey
(Fooled around) I fooled around
(Fooled around) And I fell in love

Give me what you can tonight
Time is all we have to play
Tell me you can't live without me
Tell me every day by day by day
nothing last forever, only fades way
day by day

Give me what you can tonight
I'm back tomorrow anyway
Show me some appreciation
Show me every day by day by day
The chance you gotta take, the price you gotta pay
Day by Day.

And if you break down , I will remind you, Ohh of what you were yesterday.
You can break down, I'll be behind you every,every every, every, Day by Day by Day.

Everywhere is freaks and hairies
Dykes and fairies, tell me where is sanity?
 
Tax the rich, feed the poor
'Til there are no rich no more
 
I'd love to change the world
But I don't know what to do
So I'll leave it up to you
 
Population keeps on breeding
Nation bleeding, still more feeding economy
Life is funny, skies are sunny
Bees make honey, who needs money? Monopoly
 
I'd love to change the world
But I don't know what to do
So I'll leave it up to you
Oh, yeah
 
World pollution, there's no solution
Institution, electrocution
Just black or white, rich or poor
Them and us, stop the war
 
I'd love to change the world
But I don't know what to do
So I'll leave it up to you

Morning ! Today's forecast calls for blue skies

Sun is shining in the sky
There ain't a cloud in sight
It's stopped raining
Everybody's in the play

See how the sun shines brightly
In the city
On the streets where once was pity

You had to hide away
For so long (so long)
Where did we go wrong ?

Everybody smiles at you

Please. Turn. Me. Ov-er

Hold on tight to your dream
Hold on tight to your dream
When you see your ship go sailing
When you feel your heart is breaking
Hold on tight to your dream

It's a long time to be gone
Time just rolls on and on
When you need a shoulder to cry on
When you get so sick of trying
Just hold on tight to your dream

When you get so down that you can't get up
And you want so much but you're all out of luck
When you're so downhearted and misunderstood
Just over and over and over you could

Accroche-toi à ton rêve
Accroche-toi à ton rêve
Quand tu vois ton bateau partir
Quand tu sens ton cœur se briser
Accroche-toi à ton rêve

When you get so down that you can't get up
And you want so much but you're all out of luck
When you're so downhearted and misunderstood
Just over and over and over you could

Hold on tight to your dream
Hold on tight to your dream
When you see the shadows falling
When you hear that cold wind calling
Hold on tight to your dream

Oh, yeah
Hold on tight to your dream
Yeah, hold on tight
To your dream

Why do I say, don't walk away
You'll be the way you were before, when you don't want me anymore

Don't turn around, don't ever leave, a lonely room where empty days
Are gathering to meet me when you're gone, gone
How in the world will I go on

(Don't walk away) all you gotta do is stay
(Don't walk away) all you gotta do is stay (don't walk away)

Don't walk away (don't walk away), don't say goodbye (don't say goodbye)
Don't turn around (don't turn around), don't let it die (don't let it die)
When shadows fall (when shadows fall), when day is done (when day is done)
All through the night (all through the night), all of my life (all of my life)
Don't walk away

Is it a dream, when will it end
When everything we've ever known has ended and I'm all alone

Where will I go, where will I be, the feelings that I've never shown
Maybe I'll find the answer when you're gone, gone
How in the world will I go on

(Don't walk away) all you gotta do is stay
(Don't walk away) all you gotta do is stay (don't walk away)
Don't walk away (don't walk away), don't say goodbye (don't say goodbye)
Don't turn around (don't turn around), don't let it die (don't let it die)
When shadows fall (when shadows fall), when day is done (when day is done)
All through the night (all through the night), all of my life (all of my life)
Don't walk away
 

Don't walk away (don't walk away), don't say goodbye (don't say goodbye)
Don't turn around (don't turn around), don't let it die (don't let it die)
When shadows fall (when shadows fall), when day is done (when day is done)
All through the night (all through the night), all of my life (all of my life)
Don't walk away
 

Don't walk away (don't walk away), don't say goodbye (don't say goodbye)
Don't turn around (don't turn around), don't let it die (don't let it die)
When shadows fall (when shadows fall), when day is done (when day is done)
All through the night (all through the night), all of my life (all of my life)
Don't walk away

In this world the gods have lost their way

 

Can't keep this picture from out of my mind
This fear hand in hand crossing innocence time
Surrounding creation they caught in a trap
The youngest offenders will witness confusion

 

They drive him so fast not a care in the end
Escaping collision every twist every bend
When you're young invincible nothing to lose
Keep seeing this picture standing in a circle

 

The gods have forgotten to switch on the light
Who's lost in the dark will crash in the night

 

These lessons we're living the lies of the day
Expect them to honor and never disobey
Yet greed is controlling the elders display
No wonder the younger look at them in shame

 

The spirit of survival
Who's teaching the hatred
The spirit of survival
Or the class of your school
The spirit of survival
The colour of your money
We're standing in a circle
We don't understand at all
They don't understand at all

 

In this world I truly do believe there is a safer place

 

In this world I truly do believe there is a safer place

 

The younger the older the wiser become
Recover misfortune this true life as one
Our genius is shining the past has all gone
What's left is the clearest perception of one

 

The spirit of survival
To magnify the power
The spirit of survival
To magnify the soul
The spirit of survival
To magnify the love
We're standing in a circle
We don't understand at all
We don't understand at all

 

In this world the gods have lost their way

The sun don't shine
The moon don't move the tides,
To wash me clean

The sun don't shine
The moon don't move the tides
To wash me clean


Why so unforgiving, and why so cold
Been a long time crossing Bridge of Sighs

Cold wind blows
The Gods look down in anger,
On this poor child

Cold wind blows
And Gods look down in anger,
On this poor child

Why so unforgiving and why so cold
Been a long time crossing Bridge of Sighs

Every day she gets a little weaker
The beauty she once knew has come and gone
We've murdered all her sons and all her daughters
The blood is on your hands, the time has come
And now she's gonna die

 

We've strangled all her trees and starved her creatures
There's poison in the sea and in the air
But worst of all we've learned to live without her
We've lost the very meaning of our lives
And now she's gonna die

 

Once she ruled the earth with love and wisdom
But we were much too smart to live her way
With greed and lust we tried to rise above her
The ignorance of man will reach an end
'Cause now we're gonna die

Who can stop de-evolution of the human race?
Look at you, Corporate America, you're in disgrace
Globalize; cigarettes, business jets, you love it
Maximize; but you can take your bottom line and shove it

 

Gotta get away (gotta get away)
Gotta get away, but I need a little help tonight
What 'ya gonna say (what 'ya gonna say)
What 'ya gonna say when you never even seen the light
See the light

 

Corporate America, look out, look out
Corporate America, who's gonna save us, who's gonna save us now?

 

You and I; DVDs, SUVs and cyberspace
Flying blind, virtual reality is in our face
This Earth desecrated by the human race
Now what's it worth? When do we evacuate to outer space?

 

Corporate America, look out, look out
Corporate America, who's gonna save us, who's gonna save us now?

 

I see the future in the past
Just took the corner way too fast, the reckless ride of modern man
Flattened everything that stands
Fooled by the sales pitch for progress at a dizzy pace
We idolize the filthy rich for giving us synthetic taste
Computer calls, urban sprawl
Is the world a better place, is the world a better place?

 

Fare thee well, global extinction's forever
So what the hell, order your Mercedes in leather
Veal crates, ozone holes, and toxic waste
And don't count out religious hate
Who can survive this manmade fate?

 

Gotta get away
Gotta get away, and I need a little help tonight
What 'ya gonna say
Wha 'ya gonna say when you couldn't even see the light
See the light
Yeah

Oh my God Becky, look at her butt
It is so big, she looks like
One of those rap guys' girlfriends
But, ya know, who understands those rap guys?
They only talk to her, because
She looks like a total prostitute, okay?
I mean, her butt, it's just so big
Uh, I can't believe it's just so round, it's like out there
I mean, uh, gross, look
She's just so, black

 

I like big butts and I cannot lie
You other brothers can't deny
That when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist
And a round thing in your face
You get sprung, want to pull up tough
'Cause you noticed that butt was stuffed
Deep in the jeans she's wearing
I'm hooked and I can't stop staring

 

Oh baby, I wanna get wit'cha
And take your picture
My homeboys tried to warn me
But that butt you got makes (me, me so horny)
Ooh, Rump-o'-smooth-skin
You say you want to get in my Benz?
Well, use me, use me
'Cause you ain't that average groupie

 

I've seen her dancin'
To hell with romancin'
She's sweat, wet
Got it goin' like a turbo 'Vette
I'm tired of magazines
Sayin' flat butts are the thing
Take the average black man and ask him that
She gotta pack much back

 

So, fellas (yeah) fellas (yeah)
Has your girlfriend got the butt? (Hell yeah)
Tell 'em to shake it (shake it) shake it (shake it)
Shake that healthy butt

 

Baby got back (L.A. face with the Oakland booty)
Baby got back (L.A. face with the Oakland booty)
(L.A. face with the Oakland booty)

 

I like 'em round, and big
And when I'm throwin' a gig
I just can't help myself, I'm actin' like an animal
Now here's my scandal
I wanna get ya home
And ugh, double-up, ugh, ugh
I ain't talkin' bout Playboy
'Cause silicone parts are made for toys

 

I want 'em real thick and juicy
So find that juicy double
Mix-a-lot's in trouble
Beggin' for a piece of that bubble
So I'm lookin' at rock videos
Knock-kneed bimbos walkin' like hoes
You can have them bimbos
I'll keep my women like Flo Jo

 

A word to the thick soul sistas, I want to get with ya
I won't cuss or hit ya
But I gotta be straight when I say I wanna (uh)
'Til the break of dawn
Baby got it goin' on
A lot of simps won't like this song
'Cause them punks like to hit it and quit it
And I'd rather stay and play
'Cause I'm long, and I'm strong
And I'm down to get the friction on

 

So, ladies (yeah) ladies (yeah)
If you wanna roll in my Mercedes (yeah)
Then turn around, stick it out
Even white boys got to shout
Baby got back
Baby got back

 

Yeah, baby, when it comes to females
Cosmo ain't got nothin' to do with my selection
Thirty-six, twenty-four, thirty-six
Ha ha, only if she's 5'3

 

So your girlfriend rolls a Honda, playin' workout tapes by Fonda
But Fonda ain't got a motor in the back of her Honda
My anaconda don't want none
Unless you've got buns, hun
You can do side bends or sit-ups
But please don't lose that butt
Some brothers want to play that hard role
And tell you that the butt ain't gold
So they toss it and leave it
And I pull up quick to retrieve it

 

So Cosmo says you're fat
Well I ain't down with that
'Cause your waist is small and your curves are kickin'
And I'm thinkin' bout stickin'
To the beanpole dames in the magazines
You ain't it, Miss Thing
Give me a sista, I can't resist her
Red beans and rice didn't miss her

 

Some knucklehead tried to diss
'Cause his girls are on my list
He had game but he chose to hit 'em
And I pull up quick to get wit 'em

 

So ladies, if the butt is round
And you want a triple X throwdown
Dial 1-900-MIXALOT
And kick them nasty thoughts

 

Baby got back
Baby got back

In the joy of the new season
We’d ride our bikes for miles
To a vacant lot on Maple street
Toss the bat and choose up sides

 

All summer long from dusk till dawn
We all paid our dues
Everybody was The Babe
I was always 42

 

As the jerseys faded one my one
The Babes would come and go
I played every inning
From the sandlot to the show

 

Got my letter and my grip
I’ll see you boys around
I got a one way ticket to Cooperstown
My ticket’s punched to Cooperstown

 

His rookie year they called him up
Just to send him down
Couldn’t even hit his weight
Couldn’t turn that thing around

 

But on the field that echoes life
It’s a boy’s game played by men
Sometimes it knocks you down
But you get back up again

 

He’s got his number
He’s got his grip
He’s followin’ a sound
Destiny is callin’ from Cooperstown
These wheels are bound for Cooperstown

 

Well I learned to play down in Triple-A
And they gave me one more shot
Skip said take the ball kid, touch ‘em all
Gotta give it all you got

 

So, I played ‘er one game at a time
And that was all it took
Just like Jack I never looked back
And the rest is in the books

 

There ain’t nothin’ I can’t do
Just like 42
What goes around
Comes around
These wheels are bound for Cooperstown
These wheels are bound for Cooperstown

Well, the clouds were rollin’ in and I was drivin’
When the grapevine broke the news
Over Trail Creek it was snowin’
I was hopin’ that the rumor wasn’t true
Then silence filled the air
Like there would never be another sound again
Tears came to my eyes
I felt like I had lost my dearest friend

 

Tom was a friend of mine
We’d known each other most of our lives
We used to hang out all the time
Tom was a friend of mine

 

It’s impossible to put to words
The way he always seemed to understand
How you felt like he was sittin’ there
Just shootin’ straight and talkin’ man to man
And I’m thankful that I got to see him
At his very best from time to time
And I pray that we may meet again someday
Somewhere farther down the line

 

Tom was a friend of mine
We’d known each other most of our lives
We used to hang out all the time
Tom was a friend of mine

 

Say hi to Spike and Lefty
When you reach the great beyond
And I hope you’re somewhere you feel free
Where you belong

 

Tom was a friend of mine
We’d known each other most of our lives
We used to hang out all the time

 

Tom was a friend of mine
We’d known each other most of our lives
He wrote a lot of songs with me in mind
Tom was a friend of mine

A long time ago, when the earth was still green
And there were more kinds of animals than you've ever seen
They'd run around free while the earth was being born
But the loveliest of all was the unicorn
 
There was green alligators and long-necked geese
Some humpty-backed camels and some chimpanzees
Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you're born
The loveliest of all was the unicorn
 
Now god seen some sinnin' and it gave him pain
And he says, "stand back, I'm going to make it rain"
He says, "hey, brother Noah, I'll tell you what to do
Build me a floating zoo"
 
And take some of them green alligators and long-necked geese
Some humpty-backed camels and some chimpanzees
Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you're born
Don't you forget my unicorn"
 
Old Noah was there to answer the call
He finished up making the ark just as the rain started fallin'
He marched in the animals two by two
And he called out as they went through
"Hey, Lord"
 
I've got your green alligators and long-necked geese
Some humpty-backed camels and some chimpanzees
Some cats and rats and elephants, but Lord, I'm so forlorn
I just can't see no unicorn"
 
Then Noah looked out through the driving rain
Them unicorns was hiding, playing silly games
Kicking and splashing while the rain was pouring
Oh, them silly unicorns
 
There was green alligators and long-necked geese
Some humpty-backed camels and some chimpanzees
Noah cried, "close the doors 'cause the rain is pourin'
And we just can't wait for no unicorns"
 
The ark started movin', it drifted with the tide
Them unicorns looked up from the rock and they cried
And the waters came down and sort of floated them away
And that's why you'll never see a unicorn, to this very day
 
You'll see green alligators and long-necked geese
Some humpty-backed camels and some chimpanzees
Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you're born
You're never gonna see no unicorn

I used to be lunatic from the gracious days
I used to be woebegone and so restless nights
My aching heart would bleed for you to see
Oh but now...
(I don't find myself bouncing home whistling buttonhole tunes to make me cry)

No more "I love you's"
The language is leaving me
No more "I love you's"
Changes are shifting outside the word

(The lover speaks about the monsters)

I used to have demons in my room at night
Desire, despair, desire... SOOO MANY MONSTERS!
Oh but now...
(I don't find myself bouncing home whistling buttonhole tunes to make me cry)

No more "I love you's"
The language is leaving me
No more "I love you's"
The language is leaving me in silence
No more "I love you's"
Changes are shifting outside the word

(They were being really crazy
They were on the come.
And you know what mummy?
Everybody was being really crazy.
Uh huh. The monsters are crazy.
There are monsters outside.)

No more "I love you's"
The language is leaving me
No more "I love you's"
The language is leaving me in silence
No more "I love you's"
Changes are shifting outside the word
Outside the word
