Thunder

Thunder all thru the night
Promise 2 C Jesus N the mornin' light
Take my hand, it'll B alright
C'mon, save ur soul 2night

Whoo, thunder
Yeah yeah, thunder...

Love - nobody know just how it was born
Love - 1st came 2 me with the radio on
Jumped up N my body with an attitude
Kissed me on the mouth
& said, "Ur leader take me 2"

'Twas like thunder all thru the night
& the promise 2 C Jesus N the mornin' light
Love said, "Take my hand, it'll B alright
C'mon, save ur soul 2night"

Love's kiss was runnin' all thru my veins
The bed started shakin'
don't know who 2 blame
Me or this flower right N front of my eyes
Is this my sweet Savior?
Or the devil N disguise?

'Twas like thunder all thru the night (Oh, all thru)
& the promise 2 C Jesus N the mornin' light
Love said, "Take my hand, it'll B alright
C'mon, save ur soul 2night"

Thunder
Yeah, yeah
Yeah yeah, thunder
Mmm (Thunder)

It was truly, truly...
Like rain fallin' on a window pane
Tears came 2 my eyes when asked her name
Made me holler when it finally came
Sayin', "Only the children born out of me will remain"

'Twas like thunder all thru the night (Oh)
& the promise 2 C Jesus N the mornin' light
Love said, "Take my hand, it'll B alright
C'mon, save ur soul 2night"
Whoo, thunder

We'll B alright
It was truly like thunder
Don't do it like that
Do it like this
Ahh... ooh...
Thunder

It was truly, truly...
Like thunder all thru the night (Thunder... yeah...)
Promise 2 C Jesus N the mornin' light (We'll B alright)
Take my hand, it'll B alright (It's gonna B alright)
C'mon, save ur soul 2night
Whoo, thunder (Thunder... yeah...)
Thunder {repeat}

Willing And Able

Said 'm willin' & 'm able

It's a fact - is truly mighty strong
Like a child lost N the wilderness
Till reach my destination, won't rest

Cuz 'm willin' & 'm able
'm ready 2 place my cards on the table
There's some kings N my deck & a queen or 2
So U know there ain't nothin', nothin' that wouldn't do
(Nothin' that won't do)
It 'twas a long time coming
But now that it's here
All the non-believers better fear me

Cuz 'm willin' (Willin' & able)
& 'm able (Shoo-do-doo)
got a good & plenty cards 2 place on the table
've been holding back this feelin' 4 far 2 long
& now that 'm willin' (This feelin')
This feelin' is truly mighty strong (Truly)

'm willin', uh, able
My vision is all clear, uh

Swing low 2 the tempo as flow on a roll
Here we go
Willing & able 2 start the show right
With that type of hype
lay my cards on the table 2night
Don't take me light
My flow hits U just like a lead pipe
While 'm clockin'
U just ain't fussin' about the boots 'm knockin'
It ain't like that
Besides, keep the Jimmy so get off my back

Step back b4 show U how a fool acts, baby
{Muah} Yeah

It's hard 4 me 2 say what's right
When all wanna do is wrong

Gett off

From a friend of urs named Vanessa Bet
She said U told her a fantasy
That got her all wet
Something about a little box
With a mirror & a tongue inside (Yeah)
What she told me then got me so hot

Gett off
23 positions N a 1-night stand
Gett off
'll only call U after if U say can

Naw, little cutie

Lay ur pretty body against the parkin' meter
Strip ur dress down like was strippin'
A Peter Paul's Almond Joy
Lemme show U, baby, 'm a talented boy

Everybody grab a body
Pump it like U want somebody (Gett off)
Gett off {repeat}

So here we R... N my Paisley crib
Whatcha want 2 eat? ("Ribs!")
Don't toy - don't serve ribs
U better B happy that dress is still on

Honey, them hips is gone
But that's alright
clock 'em that way
Remind me of somethin' James used 2 say
" like 'em fat, like 'em proud
U got 2 have a mutha 4 me"
Now move ur big ass 'round this way
So can work on that zipper, baby
2night U'r a star & 'm the Big Dipper
Na na na na na...

Kick it (Gett off) {repeat}

How can put this N a way
So as not 2 offend or unnerve (Gett off...)
But there's a rumor goin' all 'round

Walk Don't Walk

Walk on their side of the street?
Don't walk where it feels the best?
Walk away from people U meet?
Don't talk 2 strangers unless
They walk the way U want them 2?
Don't walk unless the others do?

said, walk like U could use a ride?
Don't walk with a confident stride
Then people will walk over U
Don't talk till they tell U 2?
Don't talk if it's against the rules?
Just walk away & B a fool?
That's what they want cha 2 do
Yeah, that's what they want U 2 do

Sha na na na na {repeat}
Don't talk if it's against the rules?
Just walk away & B a fool?
That's what they want cha 2 do

So U gotta walk like U wanna make it!
Don't walk like U just can't take it
Go on & walk on whatever side U like!
Don't walk wherever they tell U 2 - psyche!
The sun will shine upon U 1 day
If U'r always walkin' ur way
Oh
The sun will shine upon U 1 day
If U'r always walkin' ur way
Hey

"Tony, U were excellent
What U need is a manager"
4 what? (" can make U...")
Moneyminders R like parasites
They pose as wheelers & dealers 4 ur rights
& most companies say that U need 'em ("Not me")
But kick back, observed
& watched them bleed 'em ("'m honest")
Artists young & old (" can bring U 2 the top")
Where'd this unwritten law come from anyway?
That years after the contract
U should still B gettin' paid?
Boy, 'd go broke & hit the skids
B4 take care of a rich sucker's kids
Hell, a contract ain't no pension plan ("My contract...")
Years after this, my kids R still gonna make the grands
& U laughed at my brother - Little Richard ("Tony, U...")
When he says U ain't gave him nothin'
("Let's leave him out of this")
Hell, that ain't no joke
His songs R still sellin'
That man could die broke
So fellow artists, push 4 urs ("U need me")
& watch 4 Mr. Moneyminder
As we settle the score ("Tony...")
{slap} "Oh!"

Money Don't Matter 2 Night

1 more card & it's 22
Unlucky 4 him again
He never had respect 4 money - it's true
That's Y he never wins
That's Y he never ever has enuff
2 treat his lady right
He just pushes her away N a huff
& says, "Money don't matter 2night"

Money don't matter 2night
It sure didn't matter yesterday
Just when U think U've got more than enuff
That's when it all up & flies away
That's when U find out that U'r better off
Makin' sure ur soul's alright
Cuz money didn't matter yesterday
& it sure don't matter 2night

Look, here's a cool investment
They'r tellin' him he just can't lose
So he goes out & tries 2 find a partner
But all he finds R users
All he finds R snakes N every color
Every nationality & size
Seems like the only thing that he can do
Is just roll his eyes

& say that money don't matter 2night (Don't matter)
It sure didn't matter yesterday
Just when U think U've got more than enuff
That's when it all up & flies away
That's when U find out that U'r better off
Makin' sure ur soul's alright
Cuz money didn't matter yesterday (Don't matter)
& it sure don't matter 2night

Ooh-wee-ooh, don't matter
& it don't matter 2night, no
Doo-doo

Hey now, maybe we can find a good reason
2 send a child off 2 war
So what if we're controllin' all the oil
Is it worth the child dyin' 4? (Is it worth it?)
If long life is what we all live 4
Then long life will come 2 pass (Woo)
Anything is better than the picture
Of a child N a cloud of gas
& U think U got it bad

Money don't matter 2night (No - don't matter)
It sure didn't matter yesterday (Ooh)
Just when U think U've got more than enuff
That's when it all up & flies away
That's when U find out that U'r better off
Makin' sure ur soul's alright
(Make certain that ur soul's alright)
Cuz money didn't matter yesterday
Huh, it sure don't matter 2night

Money don't matter 2night
It sure didn't matter yesterday
Just when U think U've got more than enuff
That's when it all up & flies away
That's when U find out that U'r better off
Makin' sure ur soul's alright
Money didn't matter yesterday
& it sure don't matter 2night

Get on the mic... (Slow down, 'mo push up on it)

push 4 a beat that is greasy
'll dis a beat if it teases
Marks this down as state it
like my funk concentrated
The pop seems, hmmm, a little overrated
Guess U can tell what was stepped N?
Just the grease on the stage
Oops, just stepped N it (Push...)
Circling as we vibe the full stride
Was the ride on a watered-down trip
We could never get by
Fellas (Get on the mic)
Check it out - here's what U gotta do
Got 2 step N the room with the mood
Never juicin' urself
Just a competent attitude
Then me & U will get busy (Get on the mic)
Ur mouth'll drop open
As U watch the slimmies walkin'
But U don't want the 1 who's jockin'
Cuz it's all about the clockin'
Step 1, step off 2 the dance floor
Push up on it
There U go, y'all, yeah

1, 1 2 push...
C'mon, push it (Push up on it) (Get on the mic)

Prince, get on the mic... (Get on it...) (Push up on it)
U don't want me on the mic
Naw man, U don't want me on the mic (Don't stop it)
Yeah... oh yeah (Push...)

It's thunder when 'm on the mic ( push...)
Daddy Pop's N the house
U'r sure 2 like his diamonds
Sure 2 like his pearls
'm good 2 cream every boy & girl
Cuz 'm strollin'
Steady hip-hop rock 'n' rollin'
'm willing & able - horny pony
& 'm pumpin' 'em, 'm pumpin' 'em
'm pump-pump-pump-pump-pumpin' 'em
From Pakistan 2 Poland
Straight n2 ur town (Get on the mic...)
Snatchin' up kiddies like a circus clown
Hahaha... (Get on the microphone)

Well, all U people out there
U better beware (Push...)
Cuz they call me Rosie G.
& just don't care
like 2 step all night long
A rappin' here, rappin' there
Pushin' this song (Hey)
As the song gets hotter
It'll set U on fire (Get on the mic...)
Like the lightenin' N the Bible
It takes U all higher
My mama said, "Girl, U know it ain't cool"
Said, "U don't wanna play by nobody's rules"
said, "Mama, chill out & give me a break
Cuz know got just what it takes"
said, "Mama, don't put me under pressure
love U & think U'r fresh
push!"
Everybody, here we go
C'mon now & push if ya wanna - push!
C'mon... come push... it
Push!
Yeah, push it
Push!
Yeah, push it
Push!

Live 4 Love

"Launch procedure commence
Countdown start
10 9 8 7 6 5 4..."
Get goin'
"Acceleration n2 temporal state continuum now beginning"

(Live 4 love) {repeat}
30,000 feet & still counting
The attack on my plane is steadily mounting
They killed my buddy, 'm supposed 2 feel nothing
How can live 4 love?

'm calling...
Live 4 love, live 4 love
{repeat lines}

(Live 4 love) {repeat}
Kicked out of my home at 17 (Get outta here!)
A real family, now what does that mean?
Don't nobody know the trouble 've seen (Leave me alone!)
How can live 4 love?

'm calling...
Live 4 love, live 4 love
{repeat lines}
Ooh...
Live

My mission, so they said
Was just 2 drop the bombs
"Acceleration n2 temporal state continuum now beginning"
Just like got no conscience
Just like got no qualms
"Alpha 7, acknowledge"
Now what does that mean?
Say, go Tommy go...
So here, my target is approaching
The angel on my shoulder starts coaching
"Live 4 Love, without love U don't live" (Ooh)
Boom! take a deep breath
Is it boom! Life?
Is it boom! Death?
Live 4 love

(Live 4 love) {repeat}
Maybe was better off staying N school
But everybody said flying planes was cool
It's so easy 4 them 2 say cuz they never have 2 go thru
How can live 4 love?

'm calling...
Live 4 love, live 4 love
{repeat lines}
Yeah!
Whoo!

(Live 4 love) {repeat}
Damn, got hit
But still complete the mission
flash upon my whole life
Justa steady wishin'
The choice U make is vital
So at the end of my recital
say, U got 2 live 4 love

Get goin'
Live 4 love {repeat}
Live

Live 4 love, without love U don't live
& how U make it is based on what U'r givin' back
N fact, only a few of us slip thru the cracks
Thru generations, the cards have always been stacked against us
2 love each other is a must (Live 4 love)
If we just trust & cut the fuss
Believe me, unity is a must
Listen everybody - as spread the word
Everything is hazy when ur vision's blurred
'm kickin' reality N the streets of the city
There's this mentality, what goes around comes around
& gangk any clown who ain't down
With the colors that U'r sportin' 'round
Listen G, U R supposed 2 B
Strivin' 2 B the best that U can B
So stop tryin' 2 dominate & push & shove (Live 4 love)
C'mon, y'all - we got 2 live 4 love
Live 4 love {repeat}
