WOW

Hello, how R U?
U'r lookin' so fine
No, it's true
Remember the time we 1st met?
U think that was good?
U ain't seen nothin' yet

Like a bee 2 some honey, moth 2 a flame
U got an addiction & U got me 2 blame
U never saw it comin' cuz made no claims till now
U can call it the unexpected or U can call it "Wow!"
U can call it, call it "Wow!"
U can call it, call it, call it "Wow!"
U can call it the unexpected or U can call it...

Sorry, don't know what came over me
The cycle of the moon affects the motion of the sea what U did?
It's starting all over again
We both want it now more than we did back then

Like a bee 2 some honey, moth 2 a flame
U got an addiction & U got me 2 blame
U never saw it comin' cuz made no claims till now
U can call it the unexpected or U can call it "Wow!"
U can call it, call it "Wow!"
U can call it, call it, call it "Wow!"
U can call it the unexpected or U can call it...
Wow

Gimme a minute, lemme get myself 2gether
'm never really outta control
Really, 'm so much better
Maybe it's ur eyes, ur stare
Lookin' like...
Lookin' like U wanna go somewhere
U wanna go somewhere?

Somethin' about the wild N me, it's never tame
think we're both alike
This is how we became...

Like a bee 2 some honey, moth 2 a flame
U got an addiction & U got me 2 blame
U never saw it comin' cuz made no claims till now (Hey)
U can call it the unexpected or U can call it "Wow!"
U can call it, call it "Wow!"
U can call it, call it, call it "Wow!" (Hey)
U can call it the unexpected or U can call it...
Wow

U can call it the unexpected or U can call it...

PRETZELBODYLOGIC

Pretzelbodylogic, yea, it's so much fun
Dreaming of each other on each other's tongue
Taste the bittersweet undone
Now we both 2 sleepy 2 get the gun

Whoo!
Oh!
Wake up
Whoo

Hear the plane hummin', back on the run
1 hour of sleep between 'em, better than none
Promoter try 2 rob 'em, we said "Go 'head, son"
Huh, becuz we're both 2 sleepy 2 get the gun

Pretzelbodylogic, yea, it's so much fun
Dreaming of each other on each other's tongue
Taste the bittersweet undone
Now we both 2 sleepy 2 get the gun

Bank's on holiday, credit's overrun
Somebody else's problem, 2 tired 4 another 1
Pull the shades, honey, blackout the sun
need a little mo' rest & then we'll do what needs 2 B done, uh

Pretzelbodylogic, yea, it's so much fun
Dreaming of each other on each other's tongue
Taste the bittersweet undone
Now we both 2 sleepy 2 get the gun
Whoo!
Yeah...

Limo on the tarmac ready 2 ride
Cutie-pie driver said, "Get inside!"
Another limousine about 2 get a load
Oh, put ur seat back now, it's 1 2 3 4 the road

Pretzelbodylogic, yea, it's so much fun
Dreaming of each other on each other's tongue
Taste the bittersweet undone
Now we both 2 sleepy 2 get the gun
Pretzelbodylogic, yea, it's so much fun
Dreaming of each other on each other's tongue
Taste the bittersweet undone
Now we both 2 sleepy 2 get the gun
Ow!
Whoo!

AINTTURNINROUND

Born on the isle of pain
It's easy 2 find others 2 blame
We used 2 B gagged & bound
But it's over now cuz truth we found
& we ain't, no, we ain't turnin' round

2 get 2 the promised land
U got 2 go back 2 understand
Everything comes from sound
All vibrating under the crown
& we ain't, no, we ain't turnin' round

Ran out of patience yesterday 4 them with no helpin' hands
We came from a people who built everything & farmed the land
Let's stop lookin' 4 a reason 2 die & just sound the alarm
Maybe the hand that U'r lookin' 4 is at the end of ur arms
End of ur arms, end of ur arms

What U R listening 2 now is an ultrasound of Donna's brain
We would like 2 now apologize 4 the volume & severity of this content
She rocks & it's beautiful
Rock on, Donna, rock on

WHITECAPS

saw whitecaps on the water 2day
15 minutes after U went away
couldn't find a reason 2 make U stay
It's windy now but it's gonna B OK

saw a black butterfly lose its wings 2day
Singed by the candle underneath the archway
Wherever they land, they'll have 2 stay
Who can say, but what a price 2 pay

Whitecaps on the water but that's OK
Ain't never been a storm 'm runnin' from, come my way
Weatherman said it would B easy, over N a day
It's windy now but it's gonna B OK

4 the life of me, just can't recall
It's still a mystery... that's all
Cuz dark gallows lead 2 brighter halls
& masquerade, masquerade balls

I saw whitecaps on the water but that's OK
Ain't never been a storm 'm runnin' from, come my way
Weatherman said it would B easy, over N a day
It's windy now but it's gonna B OK

saw whitecaps on the water 2day
15 minutes after U went away

FIXURLIFEUP

Tell me how some people walk N the sun
While others just walk N the dark
Lookin' at the world thru a barrel of a gun
Hands behind their back N a parked car
N America U might fair better
But N London U'r sure 2 B toast
U always get the dream that U deserve
From what U value the most

U need 2 fixurlifeup!
Fixurlifeup!
Fix it up

Girl with a guitar is 12 times better
Than another crazy band of boys
Tryin' 2 B a star when U'r just another brick
N the misogynistic wall of noise
When the leaders learn how 2 follow
& let all the people lead
Instead of everybody gettin' what they want
They can get what they need

U need 2 fixurlifeup!
Alright
Fixurlifeup

Fixurlifeup!

Don't worry about what the crowd does
Just worry 'bout being good at what U love
Don't make this complicated, U know it's true
Don't make us put somebody else N 4 U

BOYTROUBLE

{Girl gossip gibberish}
Boy trouble whenever we come around
Boy trouble whenever we come around

Hands up
We came 2 party with the hoppity-hop, bass 2 the bump
heard ya killin' the game
But U 2 innocent 2 funk with us that 'll B cold (Whoo)
& we workin' purple lips just 2 match what's on the toe
Love me up now & if U wanna C me
U can take my hand & ditty-ditty, honey-bunny, don't B sleepy
U gotta start with a bang
& all I know is that'll take more than 6 times
Maybe 9 times 2 understand the guideline
Baby, back on up
'm the tornado N ur alley & whoop up on the real drug
Can get it if U don't?
U'll B headed 2 a prison
Not 2 mention of the hearts that we B wreckin', whoop

Boy trouble (Trouble)
They don't give up!
Whenever we come around
Here come the boys!
Boy trouble
They don't give up!
Whenever we come around
Here come the boys!

Oh, it don't matter what we tell 'em
The boys keep comin' around, comin' around
Boy trouble
They don't give up!
Whenever we come around
Here come the boys!
Boy trouble whenever we come around
{Girl gossip gibberish}

Boy, conserve ur energy, 'm givin' U the tantrums
When U look n2 my eyes, they look like U just seen a phantom
Take a minute, collect it, recognize it & respect it
U runnin' around N these circles
Wonderin' if can C the rkel N the Urkel
Shy guy
B cool cuz 'm rollin' with some beauties deep N the gene pool
& my fly guy
So hot, beware of the steam 'm boilin' on the stove top

This is 4 big fine ladies breakin' hearts everywhere we go
If U C us N ur city, best believe there's boy trouble
99 problems but these boys not 1
Ridin' with the top down just 4 fun
Blow a million kisses, every boy gets 1
Head back, hands up, nails done, causin'...

Boy trouble (Hey)
They don't give up!
Whenever we come around
Here come the boys!
Boy trouble
They don't give up!
Whenever we come around
Here come the boys!
They don't give up!
Here come the boys!
{Girl gossip gibberish}

No matter what we try 2 tell 'em
U know they just keep comin' around, they comin' back around
Here they come, y'all
Boy trouble whenever we come around
{Girl gossip gibberish}
Boy, boy, boy, boy trouble

STOPTHISTRAIN

Ooh-oh

just can't get 2 sleep
Feels like a couple of weeks been tryin'
The sound of this train is keep...
Keepin' everybody from hearin' me cryin'
Cuz with every other beat of my heart
know that we should never B apart
& if it hurts this bad by dawn
'm gonna stop this train & never get back on
& never get back on

Ooh-oh

Sleepin' with ur face on my phone
A face that never shoulda left alone
Pillowcase full of ur cologne
Yes, got a crush & it'll never B outgrown
Every other beat of my heart
know that we should never B apart
& if it hurts this bad by dawn
'm gonna stop this train & never get back on
Never get back on

Ooh-oh
Stop this train, stop this train

Nothin' makes sense 2 me, nobody's got a clue
Cuz nothin' & nobody makes me feel like U do

Thought 'd B high as the sky
Rock 'n' roll 4ever & never dies
Used 2 never need a reason 2 fly
Now C that U'r the only reason 2 try
It don't matter who's right or wrong
never wanna B the 1 singing this song
If it hurts this bad by dawn
'm gonna stop this train & never get back on...

Ooh-oh
just can't get 2 sleep

ANOTHERLOVE

U said was what U wanted
Liar...
U never wanted me that way
was just something U flaunted
Hired & fired
U never had a plan 2 stay

If U don't like it round here
Find another, another love
Any1 can C it's so clear
Find another love (Find another, another love)
If U don't like this, baby
Find another, another love
U don't have a right 2 fake it
Find another love

tried 2 B what U wanted
But 'm tired, tired
don't need U anyway, no
The house we use 2 share is now haunted
Expired, expired
A couple hundred days we'd have 2 pray
Amen

If U don't like it round here
Find another, another love
Any1 can C it's so clear
Find another love (Find another, another love)
If U don't like this, baby
Find another, another love
U don't have a right 2 fake it
Find another love

Move on, move on, move on, move on
Find another love, find another love
got 2 find another
Another, another love

Used 2 think I was so much fun
Now 'm just the guilty 1 (Another, another love)
Everything we used 2 share
Our clothes & even our hair (Another, another love)
Now all U C is what did
But how come can't? Tell me that, kid (Another, another love)
Behind my back 'm just a so & so
But 'm the greatest living soul U'll ever know!

Another, another love {repeat}

TICTACTOE

Like a buncha blind people playin' tic-tac-toe
Who knows where the zeroes & the X's go?
A buncha blind people playin' tic-tac-toe
Who knows where the zeroes & the X's go?

Just like sweet November
Here comes a pretender
Borderline half-caste
Tell me nothing else & please don't ask
Listen woman, I swear
If U put another streak N ur hair
Change it 1 more time
While yo Uncle Cleopusha just stares & stares

Like a buncha blind people playin' tic-tac-toe
Who knows where the zeroes & the X's go?
A buncha blind people playin' tic-tac-toe
Who knows where the zeroes & the X's go?

If U ever get the chance 2 travel back 2 ancient dance
Tell this balletina that wish her well & happy romance
'm doing much better than was when she got me high
Trying 2 rely on how many layers should strip & Y

Like a buncha blind people playin' tic-tac-toe
Who knows where the zeroes & the X's go? (Who knows?)
A buncha blind people playin' tic-tac-toe
Who knows where the zeroes & the X's go?

N simpler terms, the tic-tac that told U down below
Made ur womanly obligations better than U know
After which wide open eyes that previously were closed
Saw the past & other things about U better left untold

Like a buncha blind people playin' tic-tac-toe
Who knows where the zeroes & the X's go?
Off n2 the deepwater catastrophic down below

MARZ

Lost my job at Mickie D's
4 giving away 2 much food 4 free
But couldn't watch another black child go 2 school...
With nothing 2 eat

7 of us then took 2 the streets
Raised by the music, fed by the beat
Seeing how long we could stay outta jail is how we...
That's how we compete

We never ownd the streets that we kept defending
So the money we got, we just end up spending
With nothing 2 save & not a thing 4 lending
U'r never really happy
U'r never really happy, just really good at pretending

Everybody N the world wants 2 B a star
Few got what it takes 2 get that far
If a rocket ship didn't cost more than a car
A brother might move, might move, might move 2 Marz

FUNKNROLL

Get it
So finally, beloved, we meet at last
Middle of the here, never mind the past
Only way 2 get 2 where U never been
Is party like U ain't gonna party again

Let's funk, uh, let's roll
Get it turned up, get it outta control
Gettin' 2 the rhythm is good 4 the soul
Let's funk, yes sir, let's roll, baby baby
Get it turned up, get it outta control
C'mon everybody, let's funk 'n' roll

Whether U'r comin' by bus or a train
Shade throwers hatin' cuz they goin' insane
Million dollar party 2 their nickel & dime
Anotha motha furtha, U'r committin' a crime

Let's funk, hey, let's roll, baby baby
Get it turned up, get it outta control
Gettin' 2 the rhythm is good 4 the soul
Let's funk, yes sir, let's roll, my my
Get it turned up, get it outta control
C'mon everybody, let's funk 'n' roll

The only way 2 last till the break of dawn
Put ur phone down, get ur party on
Who U gonna call when it's obvious, dear?
Everybody U know is rockin' N here

Let's funk, c'mon, let's roll, baby baby
Get it turned up, get it outta control
Gettin' 2 the rhythm is good 4 the soul (Hat tip)
Let's funk, hey, let's roll (All 3 now)
Get it turned up, get it outta control
C'mon everybody, let's funk 'n' roll
Oh yeah...
Doo woo woo...
Ooh wee, ooh wee

don't really care what y'all B doin'
Hey, c'mon, c'mon
Let's go, let's go, c'mon (Hey)
Whoo
Oh no U didn't
Whoo...! Ooh, aah

don't really care what y'all B doin'
Hahaha...
C'mon, hey baby
