Lyrics

De La Soul – All Good (feat. Chaka Khan)

Ooh no-ohh, no-ohh
Ooh no-ohh, no-ohh
Ooh no-ohh, no-ohh
Ooh no-ohh, no-ohh
Chaka Khan, Chaka Khan
It ain’t all good and that’s the truth
Thangs ain’t goin’ like you think they should it’s all on you
I don’t care about what you think you see
The thangs you want to know when you look at me
God knows I done been through and paid my dues
Can’t change how you feel, ’cause it’s all on you-whoahhha-ohh-yeah
I wish that, you could be a little bit more upfront
Weigh the situation how you want right
The lovin’ that you claim is just a four letter word
The third letter’s invitin’ so visualize the verb
You curve thoughtways when you’re handlin’ the candleabra
So you sittin’ on the baby grand
Transmittin’ like you’re made of man
But you paint a funny face like a chick
When I see you I’ma tell you quick that
[Unverified]
I can’t believe we built this large pizza pie together no pepperoni
Yeah, you wanted extra cheese, sometimes I gave you extras
How we divided slices like the Red Sea theory
I was Moses hopelessly scorned by your thorn zapora
Tried to bring that fairy-tale life, you wanted horror
But my microscope couldn’t see or cope with that
I had to bolt from that, and left you dead in the sea
It’s better for me, I’m satisfied with reppin’ for D
We were certified hot, then dropped to lukewarm
Now we back up in the spot, claimin’ never been gone
Niggaz who cut us off, wanna reattach us now
(Them girls who brushed us off, say they want some [unverified] to dial)
Yeah, I give that ass a number and some lumber to pile
Now catch a curve from my kick
(Or show me lovin’ by brick)
So stick to the same plan, don’t come shakin’ my hand
Like we peeps, it ain’t beef but be sure to understand
Between us, it ain’t all
Chaka Khan, Chaka Khan
You see them kids be schemin’ on what we done copped
Always out there schemin’
They steady fiendin’ for the moment they can get us off the block
Why they always fiendin’?
Your people might have your back
But you need to watch your front
Indeed, ain’t nothin’ guaranteed
That’s the truth, things ain’t goin’ like you think they should
A lot say they wanna walk in my size 10’s
Aight then, here’s a pair
Lace ’em up tight then you might feel what was dealt to me
You see ain’t no young boys up in here, keep a clear head
Tryin’ to keep my pockets on stuffed like deer heads
Upon the wall, so all the gall we get from y’all don’t faze
So mind your biz and walk away
‘Cause I’m never gonna let you up inside my maze
I don’t care about what you think you see
The thangs you want to know when you look at me
God knows I done been there and paid my dues
I can’t change how you feel, ’cause it’s all, on you-whoahha-ohh
Chaka Khan, Chaka Khan

Damian Marley – Here We Go (Stony Hill Album)

[Verse 1]
Here we go
My big ego is gonna get me in trouble
Trying to play hero
My jeans can’t tight like Michael Phelps speedo
We no play follow fashion, when we lead out
Now looky here, my big ideas
Gonna get me in trouble now amongst my peers
But have no fear, no bother cry tears
You’re just miles ahead when I’m ahead light years

[Chorus]
(Here.. here I come again)
The originally, run fi the grand finally
(Have no fear.. for it is only I)
I do it regularly, through every hill and valley
(I’m here to teach you only truth)
It’s Mister Warm and Easy
Somebody please believe me
(For the things you do, Jah is watching you)

[Verse 2]
Man a wah some do a likkle bomboclaated
Weh feel like them because dem album charted
Well all bad card will be disregarded
No punk cyaan finish weh what Bob Marley started
Gong to the Zilla, I’m the Don Die-Hearted
Anywhere me go, dem roll out red carpet
Some man a buy car and nah no house fi park it
Nah unify dem selfish like market
Dem sell out dem souls just to be rewarded
Bleach out dem skin, dem favour dead to rahtid
Soul too corrupt and dem blemish and faulted
Real Rastaman we cannot be outsmarted
Gong’s not the one fi a bwoy take chance with
Ancient Nazareth weh make the Red Sea parted
Provide the harvest, in drought and shortage
With Jah by my side I’ve got all advantage

[Chorus]
(Here.. here I come again)
Gong.. the originally, run fi the grand finally
(Have no fear.. for it is only I)
I do it regularly, through every hill and valley
(I’m here to teach you only truth)
It’s Mister Warm and Easy
Somebody please believe me
(For the things you do, Jah is watching you)

[Verse 3]
So buy your tickets to the show, get there early get a seat
The real gang is in the house, everything has counterfeit
If I have not been around, it’s a part of my mistake
I’ve been busy so to speak, I’ve been winning on the street
I’ve been feeling like a Wednesday, surrounded by the week
This wrong alone can’t win, ? justice weh we seek
So ? some DJ cah dem see me?
Dem inna the ?? man make a beat
And if you buy the bullshit, then don’t lose your recite
Them bound fi ? , me a go lowe dem, make you seet
Dem sow weh dem a reap, dem think say Jah no seet
When the stage show full a demon and the club dem full a freak
And the dancehall full a pagans and dance like dem a Greek
Dem ? reek, dem pop down and a week
Dem always overdweet, but turn the other cheek
The earth is for the meek

[Chrous]
(Here.. here I come again)
Gong.. the originally, run fi the grand finally
(Have no fear.. for it is only I)
I do it regularly, through every hill and valley
(I’m here to teach you only truth)
It’s Mister Warm and Easy
Somebody please believe me
(For the things you do, Jah is watching you)

[Verse 4]
Me do a thousand video shooting, ten thousand chariot
Hundred thousand photo shoot and million radio drop
Me deejay till me ?? welcome people to the ??
You think a silver spoon ?? drop inna me lap
Me sign a billion autograph, up to now the tour no stop
Trade privacy for privilege, it balance when it swap
Tony Rebel say a reggae put Jamaica ‘pon the map
Who am I to disagree when I’ve been reaping up the crop
My first release was ’93, when dem a feed pon Similac
First Grammy at 23, tell me which one a dem do that
Another tour at 27, add it up and do the maths
The weight weh dem a carry that no heavy like me locks
I’m a veteran, the young guest to be exact
Ghetto people love me bad, I’m guessing opposites attract
Uptown me born and broke, Stony Hill to mark the spot
Big Gong to the Zilla and the return of the mac
