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 U 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)

CHORUS:
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 U 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?)

CHORUS

Mad sex {x2}

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

I see U 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 U never really knew my name (What good is time)
What good is time if U take up (What good is time if U take up)
Every day 2 complain? (Oh)

CHORUS {x2}

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

CHORUS:
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 U sleepin' in your bed
Wrong or right the reason U're taken from my embrace
Well, it's never said
Cuz every day that U don't return
Is another day that my heart just yearns and yearns
That's why…

CHORUS

If life remains a mystery
Then there's no reason 2 the rhyme
And U, U'll never know what U mean 2 me till U're mine, all mine

Until U're in my arms again {x3}

(CHORUS)
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 U 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 U were at the party
I was the one waitin' by the phone
When U were with somebody
Now here U come again with your heart in your hands
Confessin' all of your sins, yeah
The same tired line that I've heard a dozen times
But still I've got 2 give in

CHORUS:
Cuz when U love somebody
Every now and then it might rain
When U love somebody
With every sun shower there's pain
Whenever something's lost, something's gained
When U love somebody
When U love someone

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

CHORUS
(When U love somebody)
(Might rain)

Yeah, yea

Check me out on the floor
So what, U got me open
Yeah, do your dance
But I'm the one U're dancin' 4

And U know this
Round and round, don't stop it
And U know this, yeah, yeah
Up and down, U got it

Cuz when U love somebody (When U love somebody)
Every now and then it might rain (Now and then it might rain)
When U love somebody
With every sun shower there's pain
(Baby, a little pain, a little pain, yeah)
Whenever something's lost, something's gained
(Every now and then U got 2 think about what U gain) (Think U
don't?)

When U love somebody (Yeah) (When U love somebody)
Every now and then it might rain (Might rain)
When U love somebody (Pourin' down, down on me)
With every sun shower there's pain (Come on, wet me rain)
Whenever something's lost, something's gained (Something's
gained)
When U love somebody, yeah

When U love somebody {x7}
(So sweet)
(It's complete)
Well (So nice)
(It's paradise)

Round and round, don't stop it

Round and round, don't stop the pounds
Cuz a brutha gettin' down here lately
Freedom agrees with us all, U see
In a state of mind that's weightless
See, on the quantum tip I flipped on the notion
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
I'd picture my hat, my coat, my balls
Around and round (Round and round) {x2}
Huh, don't stop the pounds (Don't stop the pounds)
Yeah, cuz a brutha gettin' down here lately

Shoo-bed-ooh

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

CHORUS:
Shoo-bed-ooh, shoo-bed-ooh, ooh!
Shoo-bed-ooh, shoo-bed-ooh, ooh!

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

CHORUS

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 U stood in line 4 – how're U gonna win?

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

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

CHORUS {x2}

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 U stood in line 4 – how're U gonna win?
How U gonna win?

CHORUS {x2}

So U thought U 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 U on 2 somethin' that I found
2 make U feel good, feel good

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

Realize that U are somebody
Come on, y'all, and join the party
Everybody grab a body
And feel good, U should…

CHORUS:
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 U listen 2 the truth and not the lie
Stop cryin', cryin'

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

Realize that U are somebody
Come on, y'all, and join the party
Everybody grab a body
And feel good, U should…

CHORUS

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

CHORUS:
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 U got 2 listen 2 your heart
No one knows the final hour

CHORUS

When U see an illusion everywhere U look
When U know the process of creation
When U 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 2 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 on… U got it on this side

Come On

Lie down
We can do this all night

I know U got a young man
U don't care about me
He's darker than quicksand
He's taller than a tree
What U need is some real lovin'
Instead of these young-ass fools
I got the butter 4 your muffin
Just need the keys 2 the room

CHORUS:
Come on, baby (Shake it now)
Come on shake it now (Come on, baby)
Come on, baby (Shake it now)
Come on shake it now (Come on, baby)
Come on, baby (Shake it now)
Come on shake it now (Come on, baby)
Come on, baby (Shake it now)
Come on shake it now

We could freeze in London
U could hear me sing (Hear me sing)
And if U wanna make love then (Come on)
U got 2 wear my ring (Put it on, put it on)
Cuz I don't want no mistress (Talk 2 her)
I'd much rather be bound (Totally open)
Let's find a preacher
So we can get down, down, down

CHORUS

Come on

Ha, ha - U and your girlfriend
Y'all 2 of a kind
Just runnin' these knuckleheads
3 and 4 at a time
Both of U's want babies
But U still actin' wild
The first rule in makin' one
U can't be no child

Instead of hittin' that remy (Hittin' that remy)
Why don't y'all hit the door? (Hit the door)
I'll book us on the red eye
And we'll be good 2 go (Good 2 go)
And if every life has got a reason
U can be mine
Perfume in the bath, darlin'
Champagne while we dine

Come on, baby (Shake it now)
Come on shake it now (Come on, baby)
Come on, baby (Shake it now)
Come on shake it now (Come on, baby)
Come on, baby (Shake it now)
Come on shake it now (Come on)
Come on, baby (Shake it, shake it, baby)
Come on shake it now

Come on (Come on, baby)
Yeah (Come on, baby)

20 days in London
And U ain't gimme no love
Could it be another brotha man
That U're thinking of?
Or could it be your girlfriend
Who never ever been straight
When I ask U - "Are U hungry?" (Hungry)
U say U already ate (Ooh)

U can play me if U wanna
But U 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
I'm better off sleepin' with my guitar
If U ain't gonna sing
Strapped 2 the body
Makin' love 2 the strings

(Yeah, baby)
Come on, baby - come on shake it now {x4}

(Gimme, gimme good love)
Instead of talkin' about babies (Come on)
If we ain't gonna make love
U can't do nothing 4 me, 4 me
(Come on, gimme, gimme good love)
Can't do nothing 4 me, baby (Come on)

Come on, baby - come on shake it now {x3}
Come on, baby
I got the butter 4 your muffin

The One

If U're lookin' 4 the man that will walk away from responsibility
I ain't the one {x3}
And if U're lookin' 4 the brotha that'll treat U like anything but a
queen
I ain't the one

But if U're lookin' 4 a man that'll sweep U off your tired weary feet
Pay your bills, buy U pretty dresses
And take U anywhere U wanna eat
Make love 2 U every night of the week
Oh, don't think it over, girl
Look no further
I am the one
Oh yes I am

If U're lookin' 4 a man that'll make big money
And keep it all 2 himself
I ain't the one
No, no - not me
And if U're lookin' 4 a man that'll have 10 women
And confuse it all with his wealth
Listen here, I ain't that one
No, no no - wait a minute

If U're lookin' 4 a man who can share his dinero (His money)
Buy U half the town (Half the town)
Treat every step U take (Every step)
As if U're walkin', huh, on holy ground (Holy ground)
Place U, place U above all others
When it comes, when it comes 2 the gettin' on down (Down)
Look no further, ooh
Your man's around (He's around)
Oh yes he is

He's standing right here, right here (Right here, right here)
Don't U look no further, girl
He's standing right here, right here

(I am the one) {x2}

If U're lookin' 4 a man that'll make U feel like time has just begun,
ooh
A man that'll make U feel like U're the only thing that ever
mattered
Underneath the sun, underneath the sun, ooh
If U're lookin' 4 somebody
Who will turn your bad day into one long night of fun
Look no further, baby
I'm… I'm the one

Oh yes I am
I am the one
Don't U look no further, girl
Oh, I am the one
Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes, oh
My, my, my little Mayte
I'm the one

When U're good 'n' funky, U can say U know
Dance 2 the funky music, come on

CHORUS

If U ain't got no partner U can use your hair
Shake it like a hooker, baby, I don't care
Whatever U do, U got 2 make the people stare
Dance 2 the funky music, yeah

Alright?

Wasted Kisses

CHORUS:
Why did I waste my kisses on U, baby?
Why did I waste my kisses on U now?
Why did I waste my kisses on U, baby?
Why did I waste my kisses on U 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 U smother
In front of your [gut, tell another]
Why should I care?
Cheap perfume all over those burgundy stockings
The ones I tied U 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?

CHORUS

Why'd I waste my kisses on U, baby? (On U)
Why did I waste my kisses on U now?
Why'd I waste my kisses on U, baby? (On U)
Why did I waste my kisses on U now
