Can't Stop This Feeling I Got

Dear Dad
Things didn't turn out quite like wanted them 2
Sometimes feel like 'm gonna explode

Everybody wanna C U down 4 the count
But that ain't what bein' a real man's about
The brave & the bold hang around 4 the kill
So the bigger the hole, the bigger we fill it
They can hit us with all they got (Yeah, brother) (Whoo)
But U know what? (What?)
Uh

can't stop this feelin' got
feel it right down 2 my toes
can't stop this feelin' got
My body want it, don't U know?
can't stop this feelin' got
'll write a letter 2 the whole world
can't stop this feelin' got
Every man, woman, boy & girl

can't stop this feelin' got {repeat}

can't stop this feelin' got
U know can't sleep at night
can't stop - U know love it a lot
'm talkin' about an everlasting light
can't stop this feelin' got
get 2 shakin' all N my shoes
can't stop this feelin' got
The doctor says there nothin' that he can do

can't stop this feelin' got {repeat}
can't stop, no no
Keep on singin', y'all
Ooh...

can't stop
Try 2 tell me how 2 paint my palace?
That ain't where it's at
That's like tryin' 2 tell Columbus that the world is flat
If the song we're singin' truly is the best
Then that, my brothers, is the ultimate test
All N favor say, "Aye" (We can change anything at all)
... can't stop (Go!)
can't stop (Whoo)
'm N a butt kickin' mood 2night, y'all ( can't stop)
can't stop, can't stop feelin' got
Uh... ooh!
can't stop this feelin' got {repeat}
Yeah...!
Go...!
Feelin'... hey!

Hey, pardon me 4 livin'
But this is my world
U can't make me change (Oh)
Maybe we all got 2 rearrange our brain (Oh)
Yeah
Only we can change the world {repeat}

Ooh... (1 2, 1 2 3)
can't stop this feelin' got
can't stop this feelin' got ( won't)
can't stop feelin' got
Feelin'... yeah ( can't stop this feelin' got)
Yeah
Ahh!
can't stop feelin' got {repeat}

We didn't know it was against the rules (Shout it out)
If we only wanna love 1 another
Then tell me now, who's the fool? (Tell me, tell me)
No father, no mother, no sister, no brother
Nobody can make me stop
So if U didn't come 2 party, child

Come join us on the floor
Makin' love & music's the only things worth fighting 4 (Yeah)
We R the New Power Generation

Now get up off of my block

The Question Of U

So what is the answer
2 the question of U?
What do look 4?
What shall do?
Which way do turn
When 'm feeling lost?

Shall remain upright
Or get down & crawl?

All of the questions N my life will B answered
When decide which road 2 choose
What is the answer 2 the question of U?

U

Elephants & Flowers

Boy is lonely on a burnin' hot summer night
He's lookin' 4 some action
He's lookin' 4 a fight
He's lookin' 4 a savior N a city full of fools
Maybe he just needs a good talker
2 give him a good talkin' 2
Can we talk, baby?
Strip down, strip down
think 'm gonna fall N love 2night
Elephants & flowers

Hot sweaty light paints a picture red & gold
On a crowd of naked bodies stripped down 2 their very soul
How can he find a shy angel N a city so bold? (Super bold)
He can't even find a place 2 dance, huh
This is rock 'n' roll
Strip down, strip down
Elephants & flowers
Is everybody ready?
Here we go

Love the 1 who is love
The 1 who gives us the power
The 1 who made everything (What?)

Elephants & flowers
Strip down

There won't B no more tears (No tears)
There won't B no more enemies so that eliminates all the fear
There won't B no sorrow & there won't B no pain
There won't B no ball & no chain
Strip down, strip down
Elephants & flowers
Huh

Boy is lonely on a burnin' hot summer night
He's lookin' 4 an angel 2 hold him till the mornin' light
Here we go

Joy In Repetition

He liked 2 frequent this club
Down up on 36th
Pimps & thangs like 2 hang outside
& cuss 4 kicks
Talking 2 no 1 N particular
They say, "The baddest am 2night"
4-letter words R seldom heard
With such dignity & bite

All the poets & the part-time singers
Always hang inside
Live music from a band plays a song
Called "Soul Psychodelicide"
The song's a year long
& had been playing 4 months
When he walked n2 the place
No 1 seemed 2 care
An introverted "This is it" look
On most of their faces

Up on the mic repeatin' 2 words (Da da da...)
Over & over again
Was this woman he had never noticed
B4 he lost himself N the articulated manner
N which she said them
These 2 words
A little bit behind the beat
mean just enuff 2 turn U on
4 every time she said the words
Another 1 of his doubts were gone
Should he try 2 rap 2 her?
Should he stand & stare?
No 1 else was watching her
She didn't seem 2 care
So over & over she said the words
Until he could take no more

He dragged her from the stage
& 2gether they ran thru the back door
N the alley over by the curb
He said, "Tell me, what's ur name?"
She only said the words again
& it started 2 rain
2 words falling between the drops
& the moans of his condition
Holding some1 is truly believing
That there's joy N repetition
There's joy N repetition {repeat}
She said, "Love me, love me"
What she say?
She said, "Love me, love me"

Joy N repetition (Y don't U love me, baby?)
Joy N repetition (Y can't U love me, baby?)
Joy N repetition (Come on & love me, baby)
Joy N repetition (Alright) {repeat}
Joy N repetition (All my wishes add up 2 1)
Joy N repetition (Love me) {repeat}
Joy N repetition ( wanna say it again)
Joy N repetition ( think wanna say it again)
Joy N repetition ( got 2 go way up high & say, "Love me")
Joy N repetition (Haha - said, "Love me")
Joy N repetition (Love me) {repeat}
There's joy N repetition

Love Machine

Hehehe
Love machine
Yeah
Hey yeah

The love machine will take ur body higher
Cuz if it don't, then know U'r a liar

Don't lie
U want some love that'll make U cry
17 tongues lickin' from the neck down
Movin' N a quick speed circular motion
Round & round

Uh, lick it like U like it

've got the toys 2 turn ur body out
've got the noise 2 make U scream & shout
The love machine will take ur body higher

Like a car wash spittin' out soap & oil
There ain't never been a cleaner girl N the whole wide world
Tunin' n2 ur body psyche
Dial a perfume that U like
The love machine will put it on U right (Oh well)

've got the toys 2 turn ur body out (Think don't?)
've got the noise 2 make U scream & shout
The love machine will take ur body higher
Cuz if it don't, then know U'r a liar
Hey yeah

Fast or slow like a Leslie goes
If U want, can give U complete control
Over ur climax & over mine
The harder U come
The longer the time... (Higher)
The longer the time this takes
Hahaha... (The love machine...)
Hey yeah...

Shall we say we're N Paris?
" don't know"
Shall we say we're N Rome?

Shall we imagine we're alone?
"What can say 2 that?"
Shall we dream of each other naked?
"Shit"

Still Would Stand All Time

Ooh oh

It's just around the corner
It's just around the block
This love that 've been waiting 4
A love solid as rock
A love that reaffirms that we R not alone
A love so bright inside U - it glows
& night & day would run 2gether
& all things would B fine
Still would stand all hate around us
Still would stand all time {repeat}

It's not a thousand years away
It's not that far my brother
When men will fight injustice
Instead of 1 another
It's not that far if we all say yes & only try
Then heaven on earth we will find

La la la la la (All time)
Still, still would stand all time

No 1 man will B ruler
There4 love must rule us all
Dishonesty, anger, fear, jealousy
& greed will fall
But love can save us all
Oh love

Love, oh love
If U would just please give us a sign
Still would stand all time
Whoa, heaven! (Heaven on earth)
All! (We all want 2 find)
We all wanna find it
Still would stand all time
We're not alone, people
Tell me, can U C the light?
If U just open ur eyes
(Still would stand all time)
So much U will know
So much U will show
Love...
(It's not that far away if we all say yes & give it a try)
Got 2 give it, huh, a try, yes
(Still would stand all time)
say still, oh!
So many times thought could not make it
(Still would stand all time)
Life was closing N
just knew, just knew couldn't take it
That's when love opened its arms
& if U don't go inside
Still would stand all time
U better run 2 the light
Leave ur past behind
All things will B fine
& still would stand all time
Ooh

New Power Generation (Pt. II)

We R the New Power Generation (Oh) {repeat}
Don't pick my apples
Don't pick my peaches
Leave my tree alone
Leave it alone, leave it alone
Yeah...
Don't U look at me
Ooh

If U'r sad & U know it
& U think U wanna blow it
Look up N the sky
Love is there
Oobey shoo doo loo B doo, loo fly me shoo koo doo ooh {repeat}

Kid, Kid, got 2 do this ("Yo")
got the noise
got 2 do this, man
"Then pump the big noise, c'mon, N the house"

This here rap's about a true confession
If U listen close, U'r about 2 learn a lesson
U must know failure b4 success
Now this is the failure must confess ("Well")
was hangin' on2 life tryin' 2 deal with this
Playin' the games, almost got dismissed
Cocaine was the thing that took on
& nowhere was the place that was goin' ("Preach brother, c'mon")
must tell the truth, cannot lie
was headed 4 the kill, steal, destroy & die
Top 2 the bottom 2 bottom 2 top
Success is where 'm headed, there ain't no doubt
Success is somethin' that we all want
But the truth is what we need 2 reach that point
had 2 give this message, the stone cold truth
hope there's somethin' N it that's there 4 U
Like said b4, 'ma tell U again
(Love 2 the left of me, love 2 the right)
Success is somethin' that B within
So remember the truth, U can't go wrong
(Come on, make some noise somebody)
The flesh is weak but the spirit is strong
(Party 2night - oh yeah!)
know how 2 do this rap & know it's right
(Love 2 the left of me, love 2 the right)
Cuz did it N the name of Jesus Christ
Come on, somebody, let's party 2night
(Come on, make some noise somebody)
(Party 2night - oh yeah!)

U want me 2 what? (Shake!)
Yo, what? (Shake! Shake!)
Alright
Whoo!
