Dave & Ansell Collins – Double Barrell

I am the magnificent, I’m backed by the shack of a soul
Boss most turnin’, stormin’ sound o’soul

I am W-O-O-O, and I’m still up here again, hey

On my mind like I don’t even mind it
Model in my mind, yeah

Good God you’re my goddess

Could you put your phone down?
Could you put your phone down?

Gon’ put it down so you could put it down girl
Gon’ turn it off so you could turn me on girl

Could you put it on silent and let me slide with you?

As long as you’re cell phone blowing up
Don’t take for granted the chance you’re handed
Put down the handheld and get with it
This is the perfect time to open up
But gotta turn off the data wait up wait up…

[CHORUS]
Could you put your phone down?
Could you put your phone down?

Kendrick Lamar – Poetic Justice Lyrics

KENDRICK LAMAR
Poetic Justice Lyrics

Every second, every minute, man I swear that she can get it
Say if you a bad bitch put your hands up high, hands up high, hands up high
Tell ’em dim the lights down right now, put me in the mood
I’m talking ’bout dark room, perfume
Go, go!

I recognize your fragrance (hol’ up!)
You ain’t never gotta say shit (woo!)
And I know your taste is
A little bit (mmm) high maintenance (ooh)
Everybody else basic
You live life on an everyday basis
With poetic justice, poetic justice
If I told you that a flower bloomed in a dark room, would you trust it?
I mean I write poems in these songs dedicated to you when
You’re in the mood for empathy, there’s blood in my pen
Better yet, where your friends and them?
I really wanna know you all
I really wanna show you off
f**k that, pour up plenty of champagne
Cold nights when you curse this name
You called up your girlfriends and
Y’all curled in that little bitty Range I heard that
She wanna go and party, she wanna go and party
Nigga don’t approach her with that Atari
Nigga that ain’t good game, homie, sorry
They say conversation rule a nation, I can tell
But I could never right my wrongs
‘less I write it down for real, P.S

You can get it, you can get it
You can get it, you can get it
And I know just, know just, know just, know just, know just what you want
Poetic justice, put it in a song

I really hope you play this
Cause ol’ girl you test my patience
With all these seductive photographs and all these one off vacations
You’ve been taking
Clearly a lot for me to take in
It don’t make sense
Young East African Girl, you too busy f**king with your other man
I was trying to put you on game, put you on a plane
Take you and your mama to the motherland
I could do it, maybe one day
When you figure out you’re gonna need someone
When you figure out it’s all right here in the city
And you don’t run from where we come from
That sound like poetic justice, poetic justice
You were so new to this life but God damn you got adjusted
I mean I write poems in these songs, dedicated to the fun sex
Your natural hair and your soft skin, and your big ass in that sundress (ooh!)
Good God, what you doing that walk for?
When I see that thing move, I just wish we would fight less and we would talk more
And they say communication save relations, I can tell
But I can never right my wrongs unless I write them down for real
P.S

You can get it, you can get it
You can get it, you can get it
And I know just, know just, know just, know just, know just what you want
Poetic justice, put it in a song

Every time I write these words they become a taboo
Making sure my punctuation curve, every letter is true
Living my life in the margin and that metaphor was proof
I’m talking poetic justice, poetic justice
If I told you that a flower bloomed in a dark room, would you trust it?
I mean you need to hear this
Love is not just a verb, it’s you looking in the mirror
Love is not just a verb, it’s you looking for it, maybe
Call me crazy, We can both be insane
A fatal attraction is common
And what we have common is pain
I mean you need to hear this
Love is not just a verb and I can see power steering
Sex drive when you swerve, I want that interference
It’s coherent, I can hear it, mmhmm
That’s your heartbeat
It either caught me or it called me, mmhmm
Breathe slow and you’ll find gold mines in these lines
Sincerely, yours truly
And right before you go blind
P.S

You can get it, you can get it
You can get it, you can get it
And I know just, know just, know just, know just, know just what you want
Poetic justice, put it in a song

“I’m gon’ ask you one more time homie, where is you from? Or it is a problem”
“Ay you over here for Sherane homie?”
“Yo I don’t care who this nigga over here for, if he don’t tell where he come, it’s a wrap! I’m sorry”
“Hol’ up hol’ up hol’ up, we gon’ do it like this, OK? I’mma tell you where I’m from, you gon’ tell me where you from, OK? Or where your Grandma stay, where your mama stay, or where your daddy stay, OK?”
“Enough with all this talkin”
“Matter of fact, get out the van homie. Get out the car before I snatch you out that mother f**ker homie”

Greensky Bluegrass – Burn Them lyrics

Wanna be a bad guy in a silent film,
Lit up by candles and the space between the shadows.
I wouldn’t have to say nothing, or sound mean
I just wouldn’t smile or look too pleased…
They can’t all be good, my guess better than they should,
What if sorrows swim.
Good God I’m gonna need to burn them.

They can’t all be good, my guess
Better that they shouldn’t
But if sorrow swims
Good God, I’m gonna need to burn them

[Instrumental]

Probably cut my hair off
And save my beard
Stop wearing white
And keep nothing clean at all

What a relief from the pressure,
To just be hated
And I learned that being bad
Ain’t nothing but the pleasure

They can’t all be good, my guess
Better than they should
But if sorrows swim
Good god, I’m gonna need to burn them
Good god, I’m gonna need to burn them
Good god, I’m gonna need to burn them

Solo

I could rob some worse guys
Done up like good ones
Then hide a pile of money
And never have to worry

Baby give it all away for a reason to steal
Another chance to keep from keeping still

They can’t all be good, my guess
Better than they should
But if sorrows swim
Good God, I’m gonna need to burn them

They can’t all be good, my guess
Better than they should
But if sorrows swim
Good God, I’m gonna need to burn them
Good God, I’m gonna need to burn them
Good God, I’m gonna need to burn them

Eminem – Just Lose It

Okay, guess who’s back, back again
Shady’s back, tell a friend
Now everyone report to the dance floor
To the dance floor, to the dance floor
Now everyone report to the dance floor
Alright stop, pajama time

Come here little kiddies on my lap
Guess who’s back with a brand new rap
And I don’t mean rap as in a new case
Of child molestation accusates
Ah ah ah ah ah, no worries
Papa’s got a new bag of toys
What else could I possibly do to make noise?
I’ve done touched on everything but little boys

Now that’s not a stab at Michael
That’s just a metaphor, I’m just psycho
I go a little bit crazy sometimes
I get a little bit out of control with my rhymes
Good God, dip, do a little slide
Bend down, touch your toes, and just glide
To the center of the dance floor
Like TP for my bung hole and it’s cool if you let one go

Nobody’s gonna know, who’d hear it?
Give a little poot poot, it’s okay
Oops my CD just skipped
And everyone just heard you let one rip

Now I’m gonna make you dance, it’s your chance
Yeah boy, shake that thang, whoops I mean girl, girl, girl, girl
Girl you know you’re my world, alright now lose it
(Ah ah ah ah ah)
Just lose it
(Ah ah ah ah ah)
Go crazy
(Ah ah ah ah ah)
Oh baby
(Ah ah)
Oh baby
(Ah ah)

It’s Friday and it’s my day
Used to party all the way to Sunday
Maybe ’til Monday, I don’t know what day
Everyday’s just a holiday
Cruisin’ on the freeway, feelin’ kind of breezy
Let the top down and my hair blow
I don’t know where I’m goin’, all I know
Is when I get there someone’s gonna touch my body

Excuse me miss, I don’t mean to sound like a jerk
But I’m feelin’ just a little stressed out from work
Would you punch me in the stomach and pull my hair?
Spit on me, maybe gouge my eyes out, yeah
Now what’s ya name girl, what’s ya sign?
Man you must be up out yo mind
Dre, ah, ah, beer goggles, blind
I’m just tryin’ to unwind, now I’m

Now I’m gonna make you dance, it’s your chance
Yeah boy, shake that ass, whoops I mean girl, girl girl girl
Girl you know you’re my world, alright now lose it
(Ah ah ah ah ah)
Just lose it
(Ah ah ah ah ah)
Go crazy
(Ah ah ah ah ah)
Oh baby
(Ah ah)
Oh baby (ah ah)

It’s Tuesday and I’m locked up
I’m in jail and I don’t know what happened
They say I was runnin’ butt naked
Down the street screamin’ "Ah ah ah ah"
Well I’m sorry, I don’t remember
All I know is this much, I’m not guilty
They said. "Save it, boy we got you on tape
Yellin’ at an old lady touch my body"

Now this is the part where the rap breaks down
It’s real intense, no one makes a sound
Everything looks like it’s ‘8 Mile’ now
The beat comes back and everybody lose themselves
Now snap back to reality, look it’s B. Rabbit
Oh you signed me up to battle? I’m a grown man
Tubba tubba tubba tubba tubba tubba tubba
I don’t have any lines to go right here so tubba

Tellytubby fellas, what, fellas, what
Grab your left nut, make your right one jealous what
Black girls, white girls, skinny girls, fat girls
Tall girls, small girls, I’m callin’ all girls
Everyone report to the dance floor
It’s your chance for a little romance or butt squeezin’
It’s the season, just go ah ah ah ah, it’s so appeasin’

Now I’m gonna make you dance, it’s your chance
Yeah boy, shake that ass, whoops I mean girl, girl girl girl
Girl you know you’re my world, alright now lose it
(Ah ah ah ah ah)
Just lose it
(Ah ah ah ah ah)
Go crazy
(Ah ah ah ah ah)
Oh baby
(Ah ah)
Oh baby, baby
(Ah ah)

Touch my body, touch my body
Oh boy just touch my body, I mean girl just touch my body

Fine Young Cannibals – Good Thing

The one good thing in my life
Has gone away
I don’t know why
She’s gone away
I don’t know where
Somewhere I can’t follow her
The one good thing didn’t stay too long
Woo who who who
My back was turned and she was gone
Hey hey hey
Good thing
Where have you gone
Doo doo doobie doo
My good thing
You’ve been gone too long
Good thing
Doo doo doobie doo
People say I should forget
New friend tomorrow
Don’t get upset
People say she’s doing fine
Mutual friends I see sometime
That’s not what I want to hear
Woo who who who
I want to hear she wants me near
Good thing
Where have you gone
Doo doo doobie doo
My good thing
You’ve been gone too long
Good thing
Doo doo doobie doo
Good thing
Then one day she came back
I was so happy that I didn’t act
Morning came
Hey hey hey heyInto my room
Woo who who who
Caught me dreaming like a fool
Good thing
My good thing
Doo doo doobie doo
My my my my my good thing
Where have you gone
Good thing
Doo doo doobie doo
My good thing
Hey hey my good thing
Doo doo doobie doo good thing
Girl
Where have you gone
Good thing
Doo doo doobie doo good thing
It’s been so long
Good God girl
Doo doo doobie doo good thing
Good God girl
Good God girl
Good thing
Doo doo doobie doo good thing
Good God
Doo doo doobie doo good thing
Good God

Chance the Rapper – Blessings (On The Tonight Show) (Live) letras

[Hook: Jamila Woods + Chance The Rapper]
I’m gon’ praise Him, praise Him ’til I’m gone
I’m gon’ praise Him, praise Him ’til I’m gone
When the praises go up, the blessings come down
When the praises go up, the blessings come down
It seems like blessings keep falling in my lap
It seems like blessings keep falling in my lap

[Verse 1: Chance The Rapper]
I don’t make songs for free, I make ’em for freedom
Don’t believe in kings, believe in the Kingdom
Chisel me into stone, prayer whistle me into song air
Dying laughing with Krillin saying something ’bout blonde hair
Jesus’ black life ain’t matter, I know I talked to his daddy
Said you the man of the house now, look out for your family
He has ordered my steps, gave me a sword with a crest
And gave Donnie a trumpet in case I get shortness of breath

[Hook: Jamila Woods + Chance The Rapper]
I’m gon’ praise Him, praise Him ’til I’m gone
Don’t be mad
I’m gon’ praise Him, praise Him ’til I’m gone
When the praises go up
(Good God)
The blessings come down
Good God
When the praises go up (Good God) the blessings come down
( the blessings come down)
When the praises go up, the blessings come down
(It seems like blessings keep falling in my lap)
The blessings come down
When the praises go up, the blessings come down
(Good God)

[Verse 2: Chance The Rapper]
They booked the nicest hotels on the 59th floor
With the big wide windows, with the suicide doors
Ain’t no blood on my money, ain’t no Twitter in Heaven
I know them drugs isn’t close, ain’t no visitin’ Heaven
I know the difference in blessings and worldly possessions
Like my ex girl getting pregnant
And her becoming my everything
I’m at war with my wrongs, I’m writing four different songs
I never forged it or forfeited, I’m a force to be reconciled
They want four minute songs
You need a four hour praise dance performed every morn
I’m feeling shortness of breath, so Nico grab you a horn
Hit Jericho with a buzzer beater to end a quarter
Watch brick and mortar fall like dripping water, ugh!
(Good God)

I’m gon’ praise Him, praise Him ’til I’m gone
Don’t be mad
I’m gon’ praise Him, praise Him ’til I’m gone
When the praises go up
(Good God)
The blessings come down
Good God
When the praises go up (Good God) the blessings come down
( the blessings come down)
When the praises go up, the blessings come down
(It seems like blessings keep falling in my lap)
The blessings come down
When the praises go up, the blessings come down
(Good God)

[?]

[Hook: Jamila Woods, Byron Cage + Chance The Rapper)]
I’m gon’ praise Him, praise Him till I’m gone
(Good God)
I’m gon’ praise Him, praise Him till I’m gone
When the praises go up, (Good God) the blessings come down
(The blessings come down)
When the praises go up, the blessings come down
(the blessings come down)
When the praises go up, the blessings come down
(Are you ready for your blessings?)
When the praises go up, the blessings come down
(Are you ready for your miracle?)
When the praises go up, the blessings come down
(Are you ready, are you ready?)
(Are you ready, are you ready?)
(Are you ready, are you ready?)
(Are you ready, are you ready?)
(Are you ready, are you ready?)

[Outro: Chance The Rapper]
It seems like blessings keep falling in my lap

Hozier – Take Me To Church lyrics

[Verse 1]
My lover’s got humour
She’s the giggle at a funeral
Knows everybody’s disapproval
Should’ve worshipped her sooner
If the Heavens ever did speak
She’s the last true mouthpiece
Every Sunday’s getting more bleak
Fresh poison each week
“We were born sick,” you heard them say it
My church offers no absolutes
She tells me worship in the bedroom
The only heaven I’ll be sent to
Is when I’m alone with you
I was born sick, but I love it
Command me to be well
Amen. Amen. Amen

[Chorus x2:]
Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

[Verse 2]
If I’m a pagan of the good times
My lover’s the sunlight
To keep the Goddess on my side
She demands a sacrifice
To drain the whole sea
Get something shiny
Something meaty for the main course
That’s a fine looking high horse
What you got in the stable?
We’ve a lot of starving faithful
That looks tasty
That looks plenty
This is hungry work

[Chorus x2:]
Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins so you can sharpen your knife
Offer me my deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

[Bridge]
No masters or kings when the ritual begins
There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin
In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene
Only then I am human
Only then I am clean
Amen. Amen. Amen

[Chorus x2:]
Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life
