Little Simz – Shotgun (feat. Syd) (Stillness In Wonderland Album)



[Verse 1: Little Simz]
Oh, it’s official when you know it
Don’t say nothin’ if you can’t show it
Boy, are you a talker or a doer?
Victim or the shooter?
Let me know now ’cause
Theres some niggas that wish they knew her
I’m a complex human being
Man theres more than one side to me
I’m all ears when you need that
You should confide in me
If there’s one thing that I ask for
Honesty, don’t lie to me
Been dolo for a long time
This is God’s sign
Let me know when you’re on
I’m in the OK space, got my own place
Drive my own whip, run my own ship
All that’s missin’ is a co-pilot
Ride shotgun with me, wish you not fight this when I roll out one on my hip

[Hook: Syd]
When I’m out, you know I got one
If you don’t then you better cop one
‘Cause I always keep ’em rolling shotgun, shotgun, shotgun
Too many for me to keep up
So I never leave home without one
And I always keep ’em rolling shotgun, shotgun, shotgun

[Verse 2: Little Simz]
Oh, caught in the cross fire
My ex nigga wanna know me, lookin’ all fire
No, this shouldn’t even be my focus right now
I aspire to inspire, way before I’ma retire
That’s the shit I live by every day
We can do this if you on it
I’m not tryna play games
Talk to me proper, do not try and spit game
Simz, I’m just tryna get to know you, no you don’t say?
Your the girl of my dreams, no you don’t say?
I’ma be a minute so you better not wait
Company is maybe all I needed right now
And you’re an easy target
Don’t take that the wrong way
But ride shotgun with me aye

[Hook: Syd]
When I’m out, you know I got one
If you don’t then you better cop one
‘Cause I always keep ’em rolling shotgun, shotgun, shotgun
Too many for me to keep up
So I never leave home without one
And I always keep ’em rolling shotgun, shotgun, shotgun

[Bridge: Syd]
Can’t trust just anyone that you meet on the street
That’s why I always keep a piece
Don’t try to test me
Please, they come in all shapes and sizes
So don’t come with no surprises
I ain’t got time, baby
Got time

[Verse 3: Little Simz]
Oh, gotta see it to believe
Always keep it 100, I didn’t come to deceive
I know you probably have wondered if this was ever to be
Got love for you in abundance, never worth a discussion
You entertain interruptions, what’s with you and assumptions?
Damn it, I shoulda known why these niggas is hoes
Shoulda put you to work and kept you up on your toes
Shoulda listened to Bibi, you’re condescendin’ and needy
Don’t start today, play with my heart today
Won’t last a day, it’s what the haters say
Now we’re partin’ ways, you are far from brave
Wasn’t worth the time but oh boy, you fine

[Hook: Syd]
When I’m out, you know I got one
If you don’t then you better cop one
‘Cause I always keep ’em rolling shotgun, shotgun, shotgun
Too many for me to keep up
So I never leave home without one
And I always keep ’em rolling shotgun, shotgun, shotgun

[Outro: Little Simz & Syd]
It’s a stick up, put your hands in the air like it’s a stick up
It’s a stick up, put your hands in the air like it’s a stick up
Yeah, it’s a stick up, put your hands in the air like it’s a stick up
Yeah, that’s right, it’s a stick up, put your hands in the air like it’s a stick up



Grace Vanderwall – Clay lyrics



You see a girl in the hallway
And then you whisper to your friend
“Who is she anyway?”
You forgot what she looks like in like a day
But your words don’t hurt me
I will be OK

‘Cause you don’t hurt me
I won’t mold to

Your silly words
I won’t live inside your world
‘Cause your punches and your names
All your jokes and stupid games
They don’t work
No, they don’t hurt
Watch them just go right through me
Because they mean nothing to me

I’m not clay

You see that girl in the hallway
Smile on her face as she walks away
Trying to tear her down was your first mistake
‘Cause little do you know. She wasn’t built to break

‘Cause you don’t hurt me
I won’t mold to

Your silly words
I won’t live inside your world
‘Cause your punches and your names,
All your jokes and stupid games
They don’t work
No, they don’t hurt
Watch them just go right through me
Because they mean nothing to me

Try to change my shape
But, baby, I’m not clay
Sorry, not today
‘Cause, baby, I’m not…

Try to change my shape
But, baby, I’m not clay
Sorry, not today
‘Cause, baby, I’m not clay

Your silly words
I won’t live inside your world
‘Cause your punches and your names
All your jokes and stupid games
They don’t work
No, they don’t hurt
Watch them just go right through me
Because they mean nothing to me

I’m not clay

Jewel – Who Will Save Your Soul

People living their lives for you on TV
They say they’re better than you and you agree
He says "Hold my calls from behind those cold brick walls"
Says "Come here boys, there ain’t nothing for free"
Another doctor’s bill, a lawyer’s bill
Another cute cheap thrill
You know you love him if you put in your will

[Chorus:]
Who will save your soul when it comes to the flower?
Who will save your soul after all the lies that you told, boy?
Who will save your soul if you won’t save your own?

We try to hustle them, try to bustle them, try to cuss them
The cops want someone to bust down on Orleans Avenue
Another day, another dollar, another war,
Another tower went up, where the homeless had their homes
So we pray to as many different Gods as there are flowers
But we call religion our friend
We’re so worried about saving our souls
Afraid that God will take His toll
That we forget to begin

[Chorus]

Some are walking, some are talking, some are stalking their kill
You got social security, but that doesn’t pay your bills
There are addictions to feed and there are mouths to pay
So you bargain with the Devil, say you’re OK for today,
You say that you love them, take their money and run
Say it’s been swell, sweetheart, but it was just one of those things
Those flings, those strings you’ve got to cut,
So get out on the streets, girls, and bust you butts.

[Chorus]

Don Willams – Working Man’s Son lyrics

If all I get is what I’ve got
If the good Lord says you’ve had your shot
Once I got past my state of shock
I’d smile and tell him thanks a lot

If all I do is what I’ve done
Put my last notch on my gun
Well I’d look back at how far I’ve come
And I’d say not bad for a workin’ man’s son

I’ve had my fun I’ve made some friends
I’ve loved and lost and loved again
Been down that less traveled road
Just to see how far it goes
Spoke my mind, I’ve been myself
Tried not to hurt nobody else
But if I did I hope they’ll forgive

I’ve wasted time I’ve blown some cash
Lost some things I won’t get back
A few times there I got off track
But I’m hoping God’s OK with that

I’ve had my fun I’ve made some friends
I’ve loved and lost and loved again
Been down that less traveled road
Just to see how far it goes
Spoke my mind I’ve been myself
Tried not to hurt nobody else
But if I did I hope they’ll forgive

I’d like to think I’ll still be here
To celebrate a hundred years
With a lit cigar and an Ice cold beer
Laughin’ heart and thinkin’ clear

But if I’m not I’ve had my run
Not bad for a workin’ man’s son

Shy Glizzy – Out The Block

[Hook]
I keep my pistol on guard if you run up you get shot
Put him in a box give no fuck about no op
My niggas got locks so I’m screamin fuck the cops
All this dope money bitch I got it out the block
Bottles been popped bitch I got it out the block
Don’t you see my watch yeah I got it out the block
Gotta keep my Glock when I’m standing on the block
Everything I got yeah I got it off the block

[Verse 1]
OK bitches by the three and I’m in here with my heat
Drinkin on that lean and I’m not gon hardly sleep
I had a long day running round with GG
I came to the A just to talk about them Ps
Cash on deck you don’t have to send no mas
I got to spend a bus boy go head and fill it up
40 cal with them hollows better fill em up
Lookin at my chain I might have to hit him up
I just got a call that my youngin caught a rap
Same nigga whole hood thought he was a rat
They can’t keep it G no more unless you getting charges
Wonder how he came home he told on everybody

[Hook]
I keep my pistol on guard if you run up you get shot
Put him in a box give no fuck about no op
My niggas got locks so I’m screamin fuck the cops
All this dope money bitch I got it out the block
Bottles been popped bitch I got it out the block
Don’t you see my watch yeah I got it out the block
Gotta keep my Glock when I’m standing on the block
Everything I got yeah I got it off the block

[Verse 2]
Shout out to the few niggas that still keep it real
Them niggas who ain’t snitchin rather sit they ass in jail
The popos can’t be worried that they took no fuckin deal
I got a situation I ain’t got no fuckin deal
Before I was a rapper I had 20 and a flow
This rap shit ain’t too bad I get 20 for a show
Change up on my niggas now my niggas all I know
Boy yo ass a pussy you get chained up for a ho
I been on my bullshit ain’t been feelin like myself
But shit, I don’t feel like no one else
I’mma slam on a nigga I don’t need nobody help
Never will I be a hater I hear that’s bad for your health

[Hook]
I keep my pistol on guard if you run up you get shot
Put him in a box give no fuck about no op
My niggas got locks so I’m screamin fuck the cops
All this dope money bitch I got it out the block
Bottles been popped bitch I got it out the block
Don’t you see my watch yeah I got it out the block
Gotta keep my Glock when I’m standing on the block
Everything I got yeah I got it off the block

A-Ha – Take On Me

We’re talking away
I don’t know what
I’m to say I’ll say it anyway
Today’s another day to find you
Shying away
I’ll be coming for your love, OK?

[Chorus]
Take on me, take me on
I’ll be gone
In a day or two

So needless to say
I’m odds and ends
I’ll be stumbling away
Slowly learning that life is OK
Say after me
It’s no better to be safe than sorry

[Chorus]
Take on me, take me on
I’ll be gone
In a day or two

Oh the things that you say
Is it live or
Just to play my worries away
You’re all the things I’ve got to remember
You’re shying away
I’ll be coming for you anyway

[Chorus]
Take on me, take me on
I’ll be gone
In a day or two

Russ Ballard – Rene Didn’t Do It lyrics

Rene Didn’t do it,
He was here with me,
We came from his place,
We drank and we watched TV.
Why don’t you guys just leave him
Alone.
What has he done to you.
Sometimes he don’t do what he oughta,
I know sergeant Jones has been seen
With your doughter.
He didn’t do it!

Rene didn’t do it,
He was here all the time.
He’s never ever had a gun.
He wouldn’t pull such a crime.
He may be a fool,
He don’t do murder
Or the things that he’s accused.
OK, so he’s been seen with your sweet
Jane.
Something tells me he’s being used.
He didn’t do it

He didn’t do it
Rene didn’t do it
He didn’t do didn’t do it
Rene didn’t do it

He may be a fool
But he don’t do murder.
Or the things that he’s accused
OK, so he’s been seen with your sweet
Jane.
Something tells me he’s just being used.
He didn’t do it

He didn’t do it
Rene didn’t do it
He didn’t do, didn’t do it
René didn’t do it
He didn’t do it, didn’t do it
René didn’t do it

Joe Budden – By Law lyrics

[Verse 1: Joe Budden]
See I’m somethin’ like a phenomenon
Go ahead and judge me, I ain’t gotta honor y’all
Shit, I told the judge I’ll sit, never mind the bond
Nigga I won’t budge in this bitch, it’s like I’m a don
You can’t con a con
Left from the long arm of the law
Actin’ right as if my momma involved
My monologue say I’m back at it
One life, so son live it
I’m committed, never did it and wish that I undid it
Young kiddies listen, the one talkin’ ain’t really with it
Just forget it, would they be talkin’ if they was really with it
Come visit and see that the loudest one ain’t the one with it
And the one with it is the last one you want with it
Been stabbed and jumped slitted
Bad, then son ascended
And I pum-chika-chika-chika-pum-pum-ch-pum-chika
Every verse about me, worded proudly
Never worry or doubt me if you heard about me
Awake with nightmares, grew with murder around me
I’m still hitting my shmoney (shout) Shmurda and Rowdy
Ayyye, calling a bluff
I’m grown so I never think anything’s more than it was like horrible bud
Never beefin’ over these bitches cause it’s more that I love
I ain’t warring with cuz over what she’s offering but
She got my hammer on rock, I’m like Thor in the club
While she semi off the Remy bitch got my dick all the way up

[Pre-Hook: Jazzy]
Now you judging me, they start some shit you got no proof of
It’s not OK if I don’t do as bad if I do too much
Still got nothing, what you expecting from me
Why else you checking for me
Got nowhere left here to spare, I guess that’s my fault
[Hook: Jazzy & Joe Budden]
Ayo by law
By law, by law
Guess I’m just a real nigga by law
Getcha, getcha, getcha hands high low, high low
Still gotta ride though, I know
Niggas ’round here we still live by code
Play this record if they kill me, yes the 5-0
I’ma always be a real nigga that’s by law

[Bridge: Joe Budden]
See I’m somethin’ like a phenomenon

[Verse 2: Joe Budden]
Look what the Lords been agin
Straight from the horses jaws of hay
With an enormous rage weighin’
Unfortunate we don’t know the origin but it’s important is all they sayin
This a formal statement
The airports are delaying got reporters waiting
Live from a caucus in a Secaucus basement
For Rage to leave the cage like a lawless agent
A psycho ward patient that’s often pacing
Was Rage dragging a corpse like a dog with Steak-umms
For the organization’s inauguration
I got shooters on call with the 4’s just aching
In the four door Explorer with the awful gray tints
Notes over ya head, this a orchestration
How it is when the author give the authorization
Imploring you all to ignore the baiting
You gon’ give ya opinion they gon’ call it hatin’
By law
Yeah nigga I know
Still gotta ride though I know
Yeah nigga I know
Look, now the side show I don’t play it
I might have my nigga Tory (Say it)
See we live by a code
Lemme see u get ’em, get ’em
Real nigga by law

[Pre-Hook: Jazzy]
Now you judging me, they start some shit you got no proof of
It’s not OK if I don’t do as bad if I do too much
Still got nothing, what you expecting from me
Why else you checking for me
Got nowhere left here to spare, I guess that’s my fault

[Hook: Jazzy & Joe Budden]
Ayo by law
By law, by law
Guess I’m just a real nigga by law
Getcha, getcha, getcha hands high low, high low
Still gotta ride though, I know
Niggas ’round here we still live by code
Play this record if they kill me, yes the 5-0
I’ma always be a real nigga that’s by law

Melanie C – Blame (Version Of Me Album) letras

[Verse 1]
You took me on
And you nearly took me down
You’re never gonna get anywhere
You never really got anywhere
Lost track of times that I have tried to say
Oh, something has to change
I never really got anywhere

[Pre-Chorus]
Pound for pound
We stumble through the rounds
I’m bruised
Tit for tat
Can’t ever take it back
We both lose

[Chorus]
You’re never gonna stop the rain
But you know you’re gonna be OK
When you love someone
There’ll always be another fight
But you know you’re gonna be alright
When you love someone

[Verse 2]
I’ll take the blame
Since you decided you’re the victim
I never meant to let you down
I never really let you down
Don’t recognize the things that you remember
Oh, life’s so different through your eyes
I never meant to let you down

[Pre-Chorus]
Time to time
I wonder how we died
Do you?
Day after day
The past is washed away
We’re through

[Chorus]
You’re never gonna stop the rain
But you know you’re gonna be OK
When you love someone
There’ll always be another fight
But you know you’re gonna be alright
When you love someone

It’s been the problem all along
You wouldn’t hear when I tried to tell you
And how you can pretend there was nothing wrong
Nothing wrong

[Chorus]
You’re never gonna stop the rain
But you know you’re gonna be OK
When you love someone
There’ll always be another fight
But you know you’re gonna be alright
When you love someone

Rick Ross – Sanctified (feat. Kanye West & Big Sean) letras

There’s a few million angels movin’ around me
I just worship thee, for all he’s done for me
It’s a new day, I have been born again
I’ve been born again, I’ve been born again
In His spirit, and His name
I’m sanctified!
Lord I testify
He’s right by my side
I believe it be
His word is so clear to me
Yeah, yeah

OK all I want is 100 million dollars and a bad bitch
Plus that paper chasin’, it done turn me to a savage
Groupies in the lobby they just tryna get established
God, I’ve been guilty, fornicatin’ from my status

All I wanted was 100 million dollars and a bad bitch
Plus that paper chasin’, it done turn me to a savage
Groupies in the lobby they just tryna get established
God, I’ve been guilty, fornicatin’ from my status

Niggas be lovin’ the old Ye, they sayin’ the new Ye, that nigga be spazzin’
But when Ali turn up and be Ali, you can’t ever take that nigga back to Cassius
So you can gon’ and make them lies, but I’m so sanctified
I don’t sweat it, wipe my forehead with a handkerchief
And wash my sins in the blood of Jesus
People sayin’, “Ye we need another Yeezus”
Lames try to tell me, “Cut the wilin’ out, out”
But who the fuck is you reachin’
Pass me 30 bottles, champagne procession
That’s that Holy water, sanctified refreshments
God sent me a message, said I’m too aggressive
Really!? Me!? Too aggressive!?

Feel his blessings wash away my sins
I’m sanctified and, I have been born again
Now I proclaim, hallowed be thy name, oh

All I want is 100 million dollars and a bad bitch
Plus that paper chasin’, it done turn me to a savage
Groupies in the lobby they just tryna get established
God, I’ve been guilty, fornicatin’ from my status

Keys to my success, I get new keys and new address
Bitches that I date don’t get degrees but they can dress
Felatio’s amazin’, make grilled cheese for you, the best
Major coke figure, I’m the fresh David Koresh
Soldiers all in Al-Qaeda, new Mercades for cadets
Balmain uniform, you know Donda designed the vest
Double M, that be the Army, better yet the Navy
Baby seen me in that Wraith, wanna have my baby
All I wanted was a hundred million dollars and a bad bitch
Now I want two hundred and menage in my palace
Walkin’ out the jeweler with no mothafuckin’ balance
Somewhere in Jamaica I’m still holdin’ on my chalice
Rims on my Ferrari, my bitch said that I went childish
‘Til I fucked the girl, the girl tweeted that I was stylish
When we fucked again, she said “That was just some foul shit”
I walk into the room, you can even hear all the silence

Feel his blessings wash away my sins
I’m sanctified and, I have been born again
Now I proclaim, hallowed be thy name, oh

Lukas Graham – Mama Said lyrics

When Mama said that it was okay
Mama said that it was quite alright
Our kind of people had a bed for the night
And it was OK
Mama told us we are good kids
And daddy told us never listen to the ones
Pointing nasty fingers and making fun
‘Cause we were good kids

Remember asking both my mom and dad
Why we never traveled to exotic lands
We only ever really visit friends
Nothing to tell when the summer ends
We never really went buying clothes
Folks were passing on this stuff in plenty loads
New shoes once a year and then
Out to play ball so we could ruin them

When mama said that it was okay
Mama said that it was quite alright
Our kind of people had a bed for the night
And it was OK
Mama told us we were good kids
And daddy told us never listen to the ones
Pointing nasty fingers and making fun
‘Cause we were good kids

Don’t get me wrong I didn’t have it bad
I got enough loving from my mom and dad
But I don’t think they really understood
When I said that I wanted the deal in Hollywood
I told them I’ll be singing on TV
The other kids were calling me a wannabe
The older kids they started bugging me
But now they’re all standing right in front of me

When mama said that it was okay
Mama said that it was quite alright
Our kind of people had a bed for the night
And it was OK
Mama told us we were good kids
And daddy told us never listen to the ones
Pointing nasty fingers and making fun
‘Cause we were good kids

I know which place I’m from
I know my home
When I’m in doubt and struggling
That’s where I go
An old friend can give advice
When new friends only know a half story
That’s why I’m always keep them tight
And why I’m okay
… I said I’m OK
You know what my mama said
You know what she told me

My mama said that it was OK
Mama said that it was quite alright
Our kind of people had a bed for the night
And it was OK
Mama told us we were good kids
And daddy told us never listen to the ones
Pointing nasty fingers and making fun
‘Cause we were good kids

Mama said that it was okay
Ba-ba-ba, ba-ba-ba ba-ba,
Ba-ba-ba, ba-ba-ba ba-ba,
Ba-ba-ba, ba-ba-ba ba-ba
When mama said that it was okay
Ba-ba-ba, ba-ba-ba ba-ba,
Ba-ba-ba, ba-ba-ba ba-ba,
Ba-ba-ba, ba-ba-ba ba-ba
When mama said that it was okay…
