DJ, turn it up...
Let's go
Howhow...
3121
Bring mommy, she's loco, right? (Howhow...)
3121, come on

Thru the gates, knock on the door
Put ur clothes n the pile on the floor
Take ur pick from the Japanese robes and sandals
Drink champagne from a glass with chocolate handles

Don't U wanna come?
3121 gonna b so much fun
3121, that's where the party b
3121, U can come if U want 2 but U can never leave

Look over there, there's another turn on, mm
Butterflies scared that they're gonna b awake all night long
Dancing n ur belly like a ballerina
N spite of ur efforts 2 calm them down

Oh, don't U wanna come?
3121 is gonna b so much fun
3121, that's where the party b
3121, U can come if U want 2 but U can never leave
House party, y'all
It's goin' down, people, like the wall of Berlin

Yeah
Lock the door till U see the sun (Till U see it)
We gon' party like there ain't gon' b another 1
Futuristic, mm, fantasy
This is where the purple party people b
Yeah, this is where the party b

This is where the party b

It's goin' down, y'all, like the wall of Berlin

Lolita
Ow, ow
Stop it, baby
Mmm

U're a VIP at least 2 me
Come here and show me some ID
I know U're fine from head 2 pumps
If U were mine we'd bump, bump, bump
U're much 2 young 2 peep my stash
U're tryin' 2 write checks ur body can't cash
Mmm, U can't hang with this, girl
Look out
Lolita, U're sweeter but U'll never make a cheater outta me
Watch out now

Cool 2gether, yes, I must admit
Long time ago, huh, we'd b the sh.. (Uh-oh)
Like Frank and Ava, we'd paint the town
Just on the floor gettin' way down
Dom Pérignon and caviar
The finest clothes, huh, and fancy cars
Oh, U know 1 of them '56 pink Caddies, baby
Oh, look out
Lolita, U're sweeter but U'll never make a cheater outta me
No U won't, hey... come on
Whoo

Lolita
Ur eyes, ur mouth, ur curly hair
U're bad, no doubt, but I must beware
Ooh, U'd get a brother n trouble, girl
Huh-huh, what?
Lolita, U're sweeter but I won't mislead ya
I'll feed ya if it'll please ya but then I'll say, "See ya"
U're fine mamma mia but U'll never ever, ever
No, U'll never ever, ever
No, U'll never make a cheater outta me

Ay, ay, ay papi deja de hablar locuras {Oh daddy, stop talkin' crazy}
No es mi culpa verme tan bien {It isn't my fault if I look so good}
¿Estás celoso? {R U jealous?}
Ah no, entonces deja el estrés y cómprame un traje (Mm mm mm)
{Well, then leave the stress and buy me a dress}

Fellas (Yeah)
How bad is this girl? (Bad)
Then what U wanna do? (Whatever U want)
Then c'mon, let's dance (Dance)
Uh
Fellas (Yeah)
How bad is this girl? (Bad)
Then what U wanna do? (Whatever U want)
Then c'mon, let's dance (Dance)

Then c'mon, let's dance (Dance?)
Uh
Lolita (Yeah)
How bad r U, girl? (Bad)
Then what U wanna do? (Whatever U want)
Then c'mon, let's dance (Dance?)
Oh (Oh)
Whoo

Imagine me on the tip of ur tongue
If I took a sip, I would b on the run
Hellhounds barkin' around my door
I can't sip U once unless I sip U some more, Lolita

Te Amo Corazón
At 42,000 feet above the sea
That's where U and I 1st came 2 b
From the dust of the earth and the knowledge tree
Te amo corazón {"I love U dear" or "I love U sweetheart"}

At last, I can tell U what I've known so long
My heart's been cryin' out 2 sing this song
I don't care who knows it cuz there's nothing wrong
Te amo corazón
Ooh

I'm so scared of losing U
I really don't know what I'd do
I can't bare the thought of another day apart
My heart, my heart, corazón {"heart"}

At once when I 1st laid eyes on U
I saw heaven and earth anew
Everyone else saw my brown eyes no longer blue
Te amo corazón
Oh yeah, oh

At 1st I couldn't find the words 2 say
How much U've changed me n every way
And I just wanna thank U, oh, each and every day
Te amo corazón

Black Sweat
Workin', workin' up a black sweat {repeat}

I don't wanna take my clothes off but I do
Ooh, I don't wanna turn nobody on unless it's U
Oh, I don't wanna dance 2 hard, baby, but this is a groove
Yes it is funky
I'm hot and I don't care who knows it, I got a job 2 do (Think I don't?)
Yes (C'mon c'mon, uh)

I'm workin', workin' up a black sweat
I'm workin', ooh, workin' up a black sweat
I'm workin', ooh
Workin', workin' up a black sweat
Workin', workin' up a black sweat

I don't wanna break ur pride, mm, but I got 2
Got 2 hurt 'em
Uh (Gon' hurt 'em, baby)
U better take ur woman and hide, ooh, cuz I'm about 2
Uh (Tell 'em what U're 'bout 2 do, boy)
Got 2, got 2 show U what's really good
Break U off like U knew I would
I got a brand new dance and it's called the... uh

Workin', workin' up a black sweat
I'm workin', ooh, workin' up a black sweat
I'm workin', ah!
Oh!
Workin', workin' up a black sweat {repeat}

Breakdown
U can act hard if U want 2, this groove'll make U sweet
Mm
U'll b screamin' like a white lady when I count 2 3
1 2 3

Workin', ooh, workin' up a black sweat
I'm workin', ooh, workin' up a black sweat
I'm workin', I'm workin' up a black... ooh
Workin', ooh, workin' up a black... hey!
Black sweat

Incense And Candles
Baby ooh
Yes
Uh, let's go (c'mon)

I've been waitin' 4 U, baby, all night long
So I could tell somebody 2 play this song
Ooh (C'mon)
The jam has got a beat like it's makin' love
Mmm, cuz U're the only 1 I've been thinkin' of (Oh yeah?)
Whoa

Come n2 my room of incense and candles
I've got somethin' that U won't know how 2 handle
U can tell me uh-uh but U know how this man do
I'm gon' want it all night long
C'mon, c'mon
I'm gon' want it all night long

I'm glad that we're compatible, mature and grown
Cuz this is not something U can do alone
Oh
There's a dance floor but we can use a table
Oh, yes we can
I've got 2 have a partner that's willin' and able
Oh

Come n2 my room of incense and candles
I've got somethin' that U won't know how 2 handle (C'mon, c'mon)
U can tell me uh-uh but U know how this man do
I'm gon' want it all night long

Once U try 2 seduce me, it grows and grows
Ur mind will never deny what ur body knows
I know U want 2 take off all ur clothes
But please don't do it

I got a cool idea my darling, let's go outside
I wanna smother U with somethin' shiny as the rims upon my ride (Yeah?)
I wanna look 4 the Milky Way and uh... when we find it
I'm gonna make U scream my name as if it was divine (Prince)
But we both know that we got 2 praise the 1 who made ya
And give props 2 the mama 4 the healthy food she must have gave ya
4 the meek at heart, these words, they might sound like a sinner
But the truth is that U're sittin' on every 1 of ur dinners
But that's fine cuz I'm blind, about blind as a cat n the dark
It might come 2 n the mornin' after roamin' n the park
Hard 2 understand, always changin' plans, harder than hell 2 handle
1 scent alone'll make it worth ur while, the price of Prince's candle

All night
Circles of flowers of pyramids of sand
Violet-colored diamonds, U got 2 understand
Incense and candles wherever U can
U got 2 make this woman lust 4 this man

Come n2 my room of incense and candles
I've got somethin' that U won't know how 2 handle (C'mon, c'mon)
U can tell me uh-uh but U know how this man do
I'm gon' want it all night long

Come n2 my room of incense and candles
I've got somethin' that U won't know how 2 handle (C'mon, c'mon)
U can tell me uh-uh but U know how this man do
I'm gon' want it all night long (Ooh)

Come n2 my room of incense and candles
I've got somethin' that U won't know how 2 handle (Baby ooh)
U can tell me uh-uh but U know how this man do
I'm gon' want it all night long

Come n2 my room of incense and candles
I've got somethin' that U won't know how 2 handle (C'mon, c'mon)
U can tell me uh-uh but U know how this man do
I'm gon' want it all night long

Love
Ooh
Ooh
Ow!
Mm

Stop tellin' me what U want me 2 hear
Stop tellin' me what U want me 2 fear
Stop trippin' on somethin' U overheard
Love is winning without a word
Stop givin' me ur wish list
Love is free from all this

Like a bird flyin' over the hilltops
Love is like the sky, U know it never stops
From the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks
Love is whatever, whatever U want it 2 b
Ooh

Love is not a game U can play on the floor
U gotta stop keepin' the score
If U wanna play me like U did b4
U better stop and walk out the door
We can skate around the issues if U like
But who's gon' get U high n the middle of the night?

Like a bird flyin' over the hilltops
Love is like the sky, U know it never stops
From the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks
Love is whatever, whatever U want it 2 b
Ooh
Whoa
Ooh

I see U standin' with ur back on the wall
U better, better get ur hands up and clap if that's all and uh...
If U don't wanna get urs, then let me get mine
See, ain't gon' b no drama cuz we have a good time
What's the point of giving me ultimatums?
Smilin' at my friends when U really hate 'em
Tryin' 2 convince me that I should 2 (Oh)
Ooh, what's the point?

Stop worryin' about what people say
When U ain't gon', ain't gon' stop 'em anyway, uh
Love can do anything if U try
Come on, spread ur wings and let's fly

Fly so high (Like a bird flyin' over the hilltops)
Love is like the sky, U know it never stops (Ain't gon' stop me now)
From the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks (Speak 2 me)
Love is whatever, whatever, whatever...
Like a bird flyin' over the hilltops
Love is like the sky, U know it never stops (Oh, talkin' 'bout love now)
From the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks (Speak 2 me)
Love is whatever, whatever U want it 2 b

Oh
Whatever U want it 2 b
(Oh) Talkin' 'bout love now
Whatever U want it 2 b
Ooh
Whatever U want it 2 b
Alright
Let's skate
Uh

Come on
I see U standin' with ur back on the wall
U better get ur hands up and clap if that's all
If U don't wanna get urs, then let me get mine
See, ain't gon' b no drama cuz we have a good time
Bounce
Oh, shake that thing, come on
Ah, bounce it, baby
Oh, shake that thing, come on
Good God

Satisfied
B4 we get started
R we all alone?
Cuz I'm about 2 get open-hearted
It's time 2 send ur company home
Turn off ur cell phone
Baby, can't U see I just wanna getcha satisfied?
Satisfied

This is gonna b a long night
Long
A little bit longer afternoon
Girl, if we get this thing right
Ooh, U gonna get satisfied real soon

(Can't U see?) Baby, can't U see? (I'm just tryin')
That I wanna get U satisfied
Oh (Satisfied)
Yeah

I ain't talkin' about nothin' physical
Cuz 4play starts n the mind
I'm just tryin' 2 get U 2 think about doin' things
That U've always wanted but could never find
I'm gonna seek this thing like a buried treasure
(Seek and destroy) Like Columbus sailin' over the sea
Till I discover, baby, the land beyond expertise and chastity
Ooh yeah
I'm just tryin', tryin', I'm just tryin' 2 get U satisfied
Satisfied
Oh satisfied

I'm sure U had another lover
But let me tell U, baby, all tricks aside
I can get U out of ur body
Have U ever felt like U were dyin' and felt satisfied?

Fury
U must have heard it on the news this mornin'
Congratulations, a new star is born
Sun 2 shadow, rose 2 a thorn
But there ain't no fury like a woman scorned

Y'all must've dug it when U did ur thing
It's like the song everybody wanna sing
When the music's over, ur ears ring
With a voice that says, "Queen got no king"
Got no king
No she don't

He got a message sayin' U tried 2 reach him on the phone
He didn't wanna answer cuz he's so afraid
U'll probably tell him just 2 leave U alone

U must have heard he got another band
They're makin' money, they're makin' plans
U feel left out but U need 2 understand
Word on the street, he's still ur man
He's still ur man
He's still ur man, girl

Look out... here comes ur rainy day
Now U think U got a good reason 2 say
Everything that's n ur heart, come what may
Even though his might get broken

Who's the guilty 1 when there ain't no judge or jury?
Shadow 2 the sun, next 2 the 1, hell ain't got no fury
Yeah
Oh
Aah...

Will the roses the dead keep sending
Repair the heart n need of mending?
Will this song have a happy ending?
Only the woman knows, only she knows

2 sides 2 every story
1 man's gloom is another man's glory
Sun 2 a shadow, rose 2 a thorn
There ain't no fury like a woman scorned
Oh no, ain't no fury like a woman scorned
Oh no!
Yeah...!
Ain't no fury like a woman scorned
Yeah...!
No fury like a woman scorned

The Word
What is this new exaltation that I just can't explain?
What r these new inspirations that I can get outta my brain?
How am I gon' sleep with this feelin' rushin' all thru my veins?
Get up, come on, let's do something, don't U wanna go get saved?

The night is calling U 2 act, act upon every urge
U can't get no satisfaction if U ain't got the courage
I don't know what U're afraid of, I don't know what U heard
Get up, come on, let's do something, don't U wanna know the Word?

Who's gonna save us when them spiders get next 2 U?
Spinnin' their sticky webs around what U do
We gotta safeguard against forked tongue
And the treachery of the wicked 1
Get up, come on, let's do something

Don't matter how far U have 2, the Truth has got 2 b told
Don't matter how shiny ur lips, they'll never b streets of gold
They might try 2 get us crazy cuz they don't know what I've heard
We got this new exaltation, I'm talkin' about the Word

Who's gonna save us when them spiders get next 2 U?
Spinnin' their sticky webs around what U do
We gotta safeguard against forked tongue
And the treachery of the wicked 1
Get up, come on, let's do something

Get up, come on, let's do something, no reason 2 feel this pain
Get up, come on, let's do something, come on, go, let's get saved
Get up, come on, let's do something, no reason 2 feel this pain
Get up, come on, let's do something, come on, go, let's get saved

Get up, come on, let's do something {repeat}
Get up, come on, let's do something, don't U wanna hear the Word?

Beautiful, Loved And Blessed
Wake up
U're beautiful, loved and blessed (Mm)
U feel me? (Think I don't?)

When U found me, I was just a piece of clay
I was formless, U gave me a new name
With the breath of life I now live abundantly
All I needed was the potter's hand and the blood of Calvary (That's right)
But 2 much power can sometimes turn 2 shame (Tell it)
2 much desire sometimes make U feel the same (C'mon)
But 4giveness is how U win the game
I begged 4 truth, now I know the truth and that is when U came

And said I was beautiful, loved and blessed
I'm better than the day b4 cuz U made me confess
That I am beautiful, loved and blessed
When U're free, U're really free indeed
All U gotta do is just plant the seed

A constant battle 2 stay ahead of the game
Is anybody famous when everybody wants fame?
Always tryin' 2 break U down thinkin' that it'll raise 'em up
I just wanna b happy, come take this bitter cup from me
If I were 2 ever write down my life story
I could truly say with all the fame and glory
I was just a piece of clay n need of the potter's hand
Cuz when U whispered n my ear the words I so now understand, oh

Beautiful, loved and blessed
I'm better than the day b4 cuz U made me confess
That I am beautiful, loved and blessed
When U're free, U're really free indeed
All U gotta do is just plant the seed (Oh)

Everything U made U said, "That's good"
B4 the fall of man U said, "That's good"
Every time I walk n faith, that's good
U let me see another day, that's good (Oh)
B4 the earth was made U said, "Támar, I will lead the way and U'll go far"
Knowledge and understanding, understanding is good
And when I wake up n the morning, all I hear n my hood

Is people sayin' that they're beautiful, loved and blessed
Will U rescue me from the darkness?
And now I just must confess that I am beautiful, loved and blessed (Oh, uh)
When U're free, U're free indeed (Whoa)
All U gotta do is just plant the seed

Hey hey hey, wake up, it's a new day (Oh)
Hey hey hey (That's right), wave ur hands n the air and say (Oh)
Hey hey hey, wake up it's a new day (New day, y'all) (Oh)
Hey hey hey, wave ur hands n the air and say (Oh)

Oh beautiful, loved and blessed
U rescued me from the darkness n the wilderness
So I am beautiful, loved and blessed
No matter what the challenge, I'll always pass the test
That's why I am beautiful... (That's why I am...) (Oh)
I don't mean 2 put nobody down
Still I must confess that I am beautiful (That's why I am...)
When U wanna give up, don't cuz U know U always got a friend, oh
That's why I am, that's why I am
That's why I am beautiful, beautiful
That's why I am, that's why I am (Hahaha)
That's why I am beautiful, beautiful
Oh yeah (Oh yeah)
Beautiful, beautiful
4give us
Beautiful, beautiful {repeat}

The Dance
I don't wanna give U my love
Cuz I don't wanna lose my mind
No
I don't wanna give U my love
Cuz if I do it's gonna b the last time
Ooh...
Cuz I never wanna feel this way again
If I can't b ur lover, I don't wanna b ur friend, no
I don't wanna b friends, no
Ooh
Ooh...

I don't wanna hold ur hand, no
Cuz I would just follow U everywhere
Oh
I don't wanna see U dance
I don't wanna see U, girl
Cuz I don't even really want 2 take the chance
Of fallin' n love with U, baby
If U ever said those beautiful words 2 me
"If I wanna b ur fantasy," yes
I wanna dance, yes
Let's dance, sugar (Ooh... oh)

I don't wanna give U my love
Oh baby, this must b temptation
Cuz I just can't get U off my mind
I try and try but when I close my eyes
I see U every time
Uh-huh

I don't wanna go 2 fast
Ooh, cuz if I do I just might stay
Stay with me
I'd stay with U, baby (Yeah)
I guess I better make it last (Oh)
The longer that I feel this way
The longer that U feel this way, girl (Ooh... oh)

Cuz I never wanna feel this way again
Oh, if I can't b ur lover, I don't wanna b ur friend, no
I don't wanna b friends, no
I don't wanna give U my love, uh-uh-uh, no
I don't wanna give U my love
Oh honey baby (No no no)

Whoa baby
R U gonna really just stand there and act like U don't want this?
Baby
If U do then U know I just don't care
Oh baby
I could find another just like U anywhere
Oh baby
They might not have ur hips, girl, and all that pretty hair, oh
At least they won't spend all day n the mirror tryin' 2 find somethin' 2 wear
At least they won't wanna make love like U do on the stairs
Against the pole on the north corner of the...
Oh baby, baby, baby, baby!
It's just not fair, it's just not fair!
Oww-ooh!

Get On The Boat
Ow!

Look outside ur window, tell me now what U see?
Comin' up the mountain 4 a new philosophy
Every single color, every race and every creed
Lookin' 4 the truth, y'all, that's gonna set somebody free

Get on the boat, get on the boat, people
Get on the boat now, we got room 4 a hundred more
Get on the boat, get on the boat, people
Get on the boat now, we got room 4 a hundred more

All across the nation people doin' what they can

Everything n darkness must come out n2 the light (That's right)
Until we love each other, it's the only way it's gon' b right (Hey!)

Get on the boat, get on the boat, people
Get on the boat now, uh, we got room 4 a hundred more
Get on the boat, get on the boat, people (Oh yeah)
Get on the boat now, ooh, we got room 4 a hundred more, good God!
Say it again

Bridge
We were meant 2 live 2gether underneath the sun
I can't think of nothin' better, don't U wanna come?
Get on the boat

Never mind what time it is, the party just begun
No te alejes de este momento de inspiración
{Do not turn away from this moment of inspiration}
U can let ur hair down and let the music move ur feet
Panamama bring the drama, uh uh, dancin' 2 the beat
Maceo

Uh-huh
What's the harm in listenin' 2 the hopeful words we say?
If it moves ur heart, U know U better get n without delay
Get on the boat, get on the boat, people
Get on the boat now, we got room 4 a hundred more

Dance 2 the beat, Ray Ray Ray

Lead line, horns, hit me now, whoo!
