Mad Sex

Man, I ain't got time 4 that girl
Say what?
Yeah, she always want 2 talk 2 somebody
Believe me, I know her
Yeah

I see you at another party
Dancin' all over the place
Lookin' 4 the perfect body
2 go with the perfect face

Bushy head mulatto breakdown
And your lips got wet 2day (lips got wet 2day)
Same damn bird from London (same damn cuckoo)
Finally had the nerve 2 say (what'd she say?)
(I'll tell ya... listen)

I used 2 have mad sex in the horny morning
I used 2 have mad sex in the afternoon
I used 2 have mad sex when me and this mulatto go down
2 dirty up another room

Do it till your tattoo's dizzy
And the stud in your mouth turns gold
Till the animal prints you flaunt so lovely
Is full of little bloody holes

Bushy head mulatto breakdown
And your lips got wet 2day
The same damn bird from London


Uh, finally had the nerve 2 say (what'd she say?)

Mad sex [x2]

Steppin' up on the others tryin' 2 make a jealous brotha
Get you nothin' but another night of vibration
One nation under your groove and still you can't break my cool

I see you at another party
Once again the talk of the town
Break another heart, u sorry... skench!
One day u're gonna tumble down, down, down, down
(Tumble down, down, down)

Bushy head mulatto breakup
And you never really knew my name (what good is time)
What good is time if you take up (what good is time if you take up)
Every day 2 complain? (oh)

Dirty up another, dirty up another, dirty up another room (mad sex)
Oh yeah [x4] (mad sex)
I used 2 have mad sex [x3]
(Mad sex)
2 dirty up another room (dirty, dirty, dirty)
Mad sex [x2]
Dirty, dirty
Mad sex [x2]

Until U're in My Arms Again

All of my life I've never wanted anyone like I wanted u
Every night I said a prayer 2 God and his angels
I'm sure they knew
The many tears that I'd have 2 cry
If I ever had 2 leave your side

Until u're in my arms again
I know this pain will never end
This broken heart will never mend
Until u're in my arms again

Every mornin' when I awaken, I imagine you sleepin' in your bed
Wrong or right the reason u're taken from my embrace
Well, it's never said
'Cause every day that you don't return
Is another day that my heart just yearns and yearns
That's why!

If life remains a mystery


Then there's no reason 2 the rhyme
And u, u'll never know what you mean 2 me till u're mine, all mine

Until u're in my arms again [x3]

Until u're, until u're, until u're in my arms again!
No, ain't never gonna end
Never gonna mend
Until u're back, right back in my arms again

I'll never see like others see
(I know that u'll come back 2 me)
I know u're gonna come right back 2 me (come on back 2 me)
And this time you will never leave my arms again
(Never leave my arms again)

Until u're in my arms again [x3]
Come on back, baby
Come on back [x2]

Until u're in my arms again [x2]

When U Love Somebody

I was the one sleepin' all alone
When you were at the party
I was the one waitin' by the phone
When you were with somebody

Now here you come again
With your heart in your hands
Confessin' all of your sins
Same tired line that I've heard a dozen times
Still I've got 2 give in

'Cause when you love somebody
Every now and then it might rain
When you love somebody
With every sun shower there's pain
Whenever something's lost
Something's gained
When you love somebody
When you love someone

U were the one lookin' 4 some action
I was just lookin' 4 U
"Who needs love when you got protection"
Quote, unquote your point of view
All my partners say that I need 2 dismiss U
Until they see you smile (such a pretty smile)
All them fools are buggin'
'Cause they just want your lovin'
In the backseat 4 a little wile
But I don't care

Round and round
Don't stop the poundz
'Cause a brutha's gettin'
Down here lately!
Freedom agress with us all U C
In a state of mind
That's weightless...
C on the quantum tip I
Flipped on the notion of when
The Adam split we got Eve
Duality's now a groupie
With a backstage pass
And they ain't gonna leave
Till they get some...
From grace we fall
Referring 2 the objects on the wall
My hat, my coat, my ballz R
Round and round
Don't stop the poundz
'Cause a brutha's gettin' down here lately!

Shoo-Bed-Ooh

So you thought you just might lose your mind 2day
Brother pushin' that game on ya as if you wanna play
Askin' you every other sentence if them titties are real
One tramp even had the nerve 2 touch 'em as if you wanted a feel

Shoo-bed-ooh, shoo-bed-ooh, ooh!
Shoo-bed-ooh, shoo-bed-ooh, ooh!

The money that you make ain't payin' the rent, so you sleep in cars
U wonder aloud if u're happy - u say, yeah, as if you really are
This car you drive with no gas won't take you very far
U look up in the sky and wish upon a star (upon a star)

The answer 2 the question of life is a gray-haired bitch at least
Suckin' on the ebony dancer in between these dirty sheets
Spittin' out the aftertaste of a boy who might not call again
If this is the game you stood in line 4... how're you gonna win?

(How're you gonna win?)
Shoo-bed-ooh, shoo-bed-ooh, ooh!

So you thought he just might come every time you phone
As if u've never been lonely as if u've never been alone
(As if u've never been alone)
How you ever gonna win if you let 'em all see your hand?
Playin' the queen don't work on your knees as if you understand

The answer 2 the question of life is a gray-haired bitch at least
Suckin' on the ebony dancer in between these dirty sheets
Spittin' out the aftertaste of a boy who might not call again
If this is the game you stood in line 4 ¨c how're you gonna win?
How you gonna win?

So you thought you just might lose your mind 2day

Push It Up

(Push it up! push it up!)
Put your hands up... come on (push it up!)
Huh... yeah, this is it, this is it (push it up!)
This is it
I think they got 2 get ready 4 this one here... come on!
(Ooh, everybody's here) say what?
(This is the jam of the year)
Huh, what did I hear? (push it up! push it up!)
Uh, wasn't quite clear
(Ooh, everybody's here) say what?
(This is the jam of the year)
Oh, huh - I hear ya, huh (push it up! push it up!)
Come on, uh

If u're ever down draggin' on the ground
Face twisted with a funky frown
Let me turn you on 2 somethin' that I found
2 make you feel good, feel good

Negativity like gravity
Gotcha fallin' fast from reality
U gotta get up, put up, move up
And just do what you should, u should

Realize that you are somebody
Come on, y'all, and join the party
Everybody grab a body
And feel good, u shouldĄ

Push it up - push it up - push it up - push it up
(Ooh, everybody's here - this is the jam of the year)
(Push it up! push it up!)
Push it up - push it up - push it up - push it up
(Ooh, everybody's here - this is the jam of the year)
(Push it up! push it up!)

Push it up, push it up 2 the sky
U don't have 2 have a plane 2 fly
If you listen 2 the truth and not the lie
Stop cryin', cryin'


In harmony, can't you see
Every color all in the same key
And that's the way jah wants us 2 be
Start tryin', a-tryin'

Realize that you are somebody
Come on, y'all, and join the party
Everybody grab a body
And feel good, u shouldĄ

Come on - wake up your body, wake up your body
Wake up your body and move it around... come on
Yeah, huh
Where the party at in here, y'all?
Where the party goin' down in here? uh

Now I wanna know who's ready 2 show me
Get on down with the one and only party ambassador
Flip styles like a spatula mac-tacula
More legend than a new acura
Body tone stone while I rap 2 her
Capture her thinkin' I'm a mac 2 her
Just because I'm attracted 2 her
But the fact of the matter is the dance floor's phatter
The crowd's on fire as we push it up higher

Push it up! - come on, y'all
Push it up! - put your hands in the air
Push it up! - come on, y'all
Push it up! - while the artist turn it up, come - uh!
Yeah, huh
Break it on down (push it, push it up!)
Huh

This is the jam, this is the jam, this is the jam of the year [x2]
Push it up [x12]
Everybody grab a body, everybody push it up [x2]
On and on till the early morn' - push it up
Push it up [x7]

Freaks on This Side

Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side [x8]

When you can't find the reason 4 the smoke
There's probably water in the fire
When everything you know ain't enough 2 float your boat
And u're lookin' 4 somethin' that'll take you higher

U got 2 get down (freaks on this side, the freaks on this side)
2 a brand new sound (freaks on this side, the freaks on this side)
In the water u'll drown (freaks on this side, the freaks on this
Side)
But the lost is found (freaks on this side, the freaks on this side)

Come on, baby

When confusion tries 2 tear your world apart
And the demons fight 4 power
That's the time you got 2 listen 2 your heart
No one knows the final hour

When you see an illusion everywhere you look
When you know the process of creation
When you understand everything in every book
Congratulations - u're in the new power generation!


(Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side) [x4]
The freaks on this side! [x3]

When everybody calls the truth by a different name
And the indifference between us still remains
God is love, love is God - simple and plain
Party in this way, there's so much more 2 gain

(Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side) [repeat to end]

(Get on down, down, down, down, down)
Freaks on this side
We drownin' (get on down, down, down, down, down)
Yeah, yeah
U got 2 get down
(U got 2 get down) [x2]

It's new power generation
And u're groovin' 2 another jam of the year
Think it ain't when it is
And we be drownin'
Glug, glug like a mug

Looka here - freak on this side
The freaks on this side
Looka here - on this side
On this side
The freaks onĄ u got it on this side

Come On

I know you got a young man
U don't care about me
He's darker than quicksand
He's taller than a tree

'Stead of these young ass fools

Just need the keys 2 the room

And if you wanna make love then

'Cause I don't want no mistress

Let's find a Preacher
So we can get down, down, down

Both of U's want babies
But u're still actin' wild
The first rule in makin' one
U can't be no child
'Stead of hittin' that remy (hittin' that remy)
Why don't y'all hit the door (hit the door)

And if every life has got a reason, U can be mine
Perfume in the bath darlin'
Champagne, while we dine

Or could it be u're girlfriend?
Who never, ever been straight
When I ask U R U hungry... (hungry)
U say you already ate.
Now. U can play me if you wanna
But you better let me know (let me know baby)
I don't need 2 play the good licks if there ain't gonna be no show

Strapped 2 the body... makin' love 2 the strings.

All right?

Wasted Kisses

Why did I waste my kisses on u, baby?
Why did I waste my kisses on you now?
Why did I waste my kisses on u, baby?
Why did I waste my kisses on you now?

Overdue... that's how I described the hour
The minute, the moment that I first laid eyes on u
I guess I knew that sooner or later this power
Would manifest itself into a rendezvous

Small dark room... that's where I let you smother
In front of your (gut, tell another)
Why should I care?

Cheap perfume all over those burgundy stockings
The ones I tied you up with
I shoulda just left 'em there (shoulda just left 'em there)
Why'd I waste my kisses on u?

Why did I waste my kisses on u, baby?

Why'd I waste my kisses on u, baby? (on u)
Why did I waste my kisses on you now?
Why'd I waste my kisses on u, baby? (on u)
Why did I waste my kisses on you now?
