(There'll Never B) Another Like Me

Whoo!

It really don't matter who U get with
Cuz it just ain't meant 2 B
It really don't matter cuz U never shoulda woulda
Ever coulda been like me
can get U what U want
Anything at all, girl
All U gotta say is please
Ask ur mother, ur sister, ur brother
There'll never B another, never B another like me

Late afternoon
Slipped outta my bed
Turned up the stereo
About 2 raise the dead
Slipped N the bathroom
Put some olive oil N my hair
Walked N my closet
Tryin' 2 find somethin' 2 wear
Then checked my email
2 C where the party B (We party)
Change the names 2 protect the guilty
& get ready 2 creep
Should bring somebody
Or dance alone?
It don't matter 2 me, y'all
Cuz 2night is on (Whoo)
Come on

It really don't matter who U get with
Cuz it just ain't meant 2 B (No no)
It really don't matter cuz U never shoulda woulda (No)
Ever coulda been like me (Hey baby)
can get U what U want
Anything at all, girl
All U gotta say is please (Oh)
Ask ur mother, ur sister, ur brother (Yeah)
There'll never B another, never b another like me

'Bout a half past 10
& 'm on my way
Heard U had a fine little Puerto Rican DJ
(Oh mamacita)
Listen
If she ain't got Prince's new song
Gon' B a scene
Cuz can't stand nobody cussin' at me (Uh-uh)
When 'm clean (Haha)
Arms all around me, huh
Soon as hit the door
Good thing ate my spinach
U'r thicker than b4 (Don't get mad)
Oh, what's this boy lookin' at?
Y he makin' that face? (Uh-oh)
Don't he know got crazy freinds with me (Sexy)
Ready 2 tear up this place? (Whoo)

It really don't matter who U get with (Hey)
Cuz it just ain't meant 2 B
(B like Don Cornelius & Rick James)
It really don't matter cuz U never shoulda woulda (Ah...)
Ever coulda been like me
can get U what U want
Anything at all, girl (Hey baby)
All U gotta say is please (Oh Lord)
Ask ur mother, ur sister, ur brother (Lord God yeah)
There'll never B another, never B another like me

Can't U C this is inevitable?
What's the use N wastin' time, mama?
U & me, we could B com4table
All that it takes is U 2 make up ur mind
Uh

So now what's the matter?
Huh
U & me, we both dimes
Said we were
All them other pennies should scatter
Said they should
We ought not waste this time
That's Y... (Whoo)

It really don't matter who U get with
Cuz it just ain't meant 2 B
It really don't matter cuz U never shoulda woulda (Oh yeah...)
Ever coulda been like me (Just like 2 do it, 2 do it)
can get U what U want
Anything at all, girl
All U gotta say is please
(U gotta stop bein' average, it doesn't last)
Ask ur mother, ur sister, ur brother
(Ain't nothin' never ever B like me)
There'll never B another, never B another like me
(What U waitin' 4?)

What U waitin' 4...? (Never B another like me)
So what, U think of them b4
That's alright
What U waitin' 4...?
like 'em healthy, baby!
& once more (Never B another like me)
Let's get out on this dance floor
Oh (Whoo)

It really don't matter who U get with
Cuz it just ain't meant 2 B
Never B another, never B another like me (Whoo)

Anything at all, girl
All U gotta say is please
Never B another, never B another like me
Never B another like me
Never B another like me
Never B another, never B another like me

What U waiting 4...? {repeat}
Never B another, never B another

There's more than a thousand replies

That's when get so surprised
Another wonder of the world realized

That's Y just don't want U here
& just don't want U near me, baby

Flying above all fears
haven't seen any tears

Not even maybe

How desperate am ?
wonder if U R what keeps me alive
Alone can't get as high
Even thou 've tried
Oh

It's different when U'r grown
The wine don't taste the same when U'r alone
& the size of the bed now seems
Like the biggest that 've ever known
Oh

just don't want U here
just don't want U near me, baby
Oh no
Cuz 'm scared 'll cry
& love U like crazy
But 'm flying above all fears (So high)

Not even maybe

There's so much more 4 U & me 2 explore
Ooh baby baby
& when U walk thru that door
'm gonna give U what U'r waiting 4
Ooh

Listen baby, lemme break this down
'm gonna say this once
& then 'm gon' leave this town (Ooh-oh)
If U can learn 2 open ur eyes underwater
Then U & me won't drown without each other
promise 'll C U on the other side
If U just believe N me & trust this ride
The quicket way, baby, is U & me sincere (Ooh yeah)
Right now just don't want U here

Not lately, no
Oh, ain't gonna land ( don't wanna land)
Without U, baby, ain't gonna land, no
Not even maybe (Here, want U near)
Don't listen 2 me, no

Hey (Here)

Donny Hathaway's "Song 4 U"
Ain't the same ( just want U here)
Without U here

Valentina

Hey Valentina, tell ur mama she should give me a call
When she get tired of runnin' after U down the hall

Mm, b4 U came on2 the scene
It was a Hollywood mess
(Hey Valentina) (It sure was)
Ur mama was a movie queen
She was 1 of the best
(Hey Valentina) (Ha)
Every boy had the hots 4 her
Around the world
Even girls adored her
Mexican bombshell
Come 2 conquer the west
(Hey Valentina) (Hey)

Hey Valentina, tell ur mama she should give me a call
When she get tired of runnin' after U down the hall
& she's all worn out from those late night feedings
& she ready 4 another rock 'n' roll meeting
Oh Valentina, tell ur mama she should give me a call
Yes she should

Ur uncle Sami used 2 hold it down every day
(Hey Valentina) (From Tijuana 2 L.A., holmes)
Watch the bootyguards
Scarecrow the buzzards away (Watch out)
(Hey Valentina) (Shoot the boo)
Like an aeroplane
The time flies over so many guys
They couldn't get ur sweet little mama 2 stay
(Hey Valentina) ( don't know what 2 say... she loco)

Hey Valentina, tell ur mama 2 give me a call
(Hey Valentina, tell ur mama she should give me a call)
& when she get tired of runnin' after U down the hall
Well girl, yeah (All worn out, late night feedings)
Late night, all night (Rock 'n' roll meeting)
Tell ur mama she should give me a call

Curvier than a Fender Stratocaster guitar
Oh
Reality bender
From no greencard 2 superstar
Broken up slang even when
The king of Hollywood ain't that tall
Sho' as Betty's ugly
Ur mama bigger than 'em all
Here me, y'all
Hey Valentina
Hey Valentina (Oh)

Give me a call
Runnin' down the funky hall
Oh yeah
That's alright
Yeah
Tell ur mama, tell ur mama she need 2 give me a call

Hey Valentina, tell ur mama she should give me a call
(Hey Valentina) (Oh yeah)
When she get tired of runnin' after U down the hall
(Hey Valentina)

Tell ur mama she should call up me N advance
If Penélope wants 2 Cruz
There ain't no way we ain't gon' dance
Tell ur mama, tell ur mama should should give me a call
Oh, that's all

Hey Valentina, tell ur mama she should give me a call

Better With Time

Ooh-oh
Mmm-oh
Oh-ooh
Time, time
Ooh, oh yeah

This might seem strange
Since so much time has passed
& since only 1 of us still looks the same
Ur words, not mine (no, not mine), baby
U'r still fine, oh yes U R
Like wine, U get better with time

So young & so naive
That never 4 once believed
That the memory of U would go thru me
Like wind goes thru the trees
Maybe if U believe, baby
That could not deceive U
U & side by side
Or somewhere N between

don't know
don't know if this is a bore
But just can no longer ignore
This fact so sublime
U get better with time
Any1 who's met U agrees
That no 1 4gets U
Most of all, not me
U can claim U'r humble & hide
But when it's true, my dear
It's not pride, no
No no
Oh
Ooh
Ooh

A jury of my peers would find me
Guilty of so many crimes
Becuz if chose not 2 remind U
That U get better with time
Oh, this might seem absurd
2 some1 so cultured
& 2 1 who would grace any stage
Listen 2 me now (Listen)

When the hair that frames that face
Dark brown or silvery lace
What is age but a cage?
Never mind
U'll B blind 2 not know
That U get better with time

Ol' Skool Company

Ooh, this my song
Huh
Ooh, this my song
Alright, look here, y'all
Flop hats, hot pants & gold medallions
Fake grillz, huh, 2 the side
Look out

Mm, every once N awhile
U need some ol' school company
Somebody that appreciates a sexy groove
& an old school melody
When God, His Son & the love of family
Ruled N the community
The songs U sing lift U up 2 heaven
A heaven we can believe N

Everybody talkin' about hard times
Like it just started yesterday, mm
People know, they've been strugglin'
At least it seems that way
Fat cats on Wall Street
They got a bailout
While somebody else got 2 wait
700 billion but my old neighborhood
Ain't nothin' changed but the date

Listen
Every once N awhile
U need some ol' school company
Somebody that appreciates a sexy groove
& an old school melody
Dig
When God, His Son & the love of family
Ruled N the community
The songs U sing lift U up 2 heaven
A heaven we can believe N (Believe it, y'all)

Ain't nothin' ever came from complainin'
Except a bitter heart, that's true
Follow along & U gon' wanna do somethin'
B4 the next chorus is thru
The songs we sing, they used 2 mean somethin'
Now every other 1 is just mean
Rather than reminisce, 'm tellin' U this
It's time 4 a brand new scene

Oh
Every once N awhile
U need some ol' school company
Somebody that appreciates a sexy groove
& an old school melody
When God, His Son & the love of family
Ruled N the community (It ruled..., y'all, yes it did)
The songs U sing lift U up 2 heaven
A heaven we can believe N (Up we can believe N)

Everybody sinkin' N the quicksand
Created by the keepers of time
Cast aside by using ancient tricks
That changes ur state of mind (Cuz they got ur mind)
Got U caterin' 2 the whims of the flesh b4
B4 U get ur paper right (Get ur paper right, y'all)
Call me old-fashioned but back N the day
There wasn't no shorties N sight (Coulda got that money tho)

Cuz everyday need some
Ooh, we... need it (Ol' school company)
Sexy groove (The old school melody)
While we were pleadin'
Ruled N the community
Lift U up
A heaven we can believe N (Believe me, baby)

1st come job, then come marriage
B4 shorty come out with the baby carriage
Call me old-fashioned
Just clap yo hands, just clap yo hands
Radio used 2 B local
Untouched by the, untouched by the man
Songs we used 2 sing used 2 mean somethin'
Now they just bland
Mmm, like the drummer

Whoo! Where's the real drummer? (Ol' school company)
Where's the real drummer? (The old school melody)
Michael B., Mint Condition & Morris Day (Ruled N the community)
& Jellybean wishin', Sheila E & brother John (Lift U up)
Sometimes me until the dawn (A heaven we can believe N)

If the White House is black
We got 2 take the radio back
Power 2 the people, power 2 the people

New world hippies say we don't care
Make the party strip 2 their underwear
Turn the lights off so they don't stare
Somebody blindfold Billy, he's so square
Christina Milian playin' "Truth or Dare?"
Maxwell & CeeLo, they gonna end up there
Pickin' out the number: nickel, dime, don't care
As long as she havin' fun, nobody scared

got a pocket full of...
got a pocket full of plenty good time (Ol' school company)
Whoa Lord, & Nicole's on the line (The old school melody)
No baby, U can't get N, uh, Lord
& neither can ur man (Ruled N the community)
U C, we got this girl
With this abusive thing goin' on
'm just a bad mama jama
& y'all can't understand
Oh! Hit it

The new Minneapolis sound
Honey collected, drop the needle down

Ol' school company
The old school melody
Well, how do ya do?
C, there ain't another like me
Up N this chocolate box
U gotta dance 4 me, baby
If U wanna C me rock
Call the government man
Tell him we got 2 B free
Valentina 2night?
Huh, 'm busy
So tell ur mama 77 Beverly Park
Gets better with time, mm
We got the ol' school company, y'all
Dancin' N the dark
don't mind, say don't mind
Put this thing on repeat
Go back 2 1 & justa move ur feet &...
Tell ur friends Prince & the Minneapolis sound
We can't B beat, suckas!

Ol' school company
The old school melody
Ruled N the community
Lift U up
A heaven we can believe N
