Mad Sex
Man, I ain't got time 4 that girl
Say what?
Yeah, she always want 2 talk 2 somebody
Believe me, I know her, yeah

I see U at another party
Dancin' all over the place, huh
Lookin' 4 the perfect body
2 go with the perfect face
Bushy head mulatto breakdown
And ur lips got wet 2day
The same damn bird from London (Same damn cuckoo)
Finally had the nerve 2 say (What'd she say? I'll tell ya, listen)

I used 2 have mad sex n the horny mornin'
I used 2 have mad sex n the afternoon
I used 2 have mad sex when me and this mulatto go down
2 dirty up another room

Do it till ur tattoo's dizzy
And the stud n ur mouth turns gold
Till the animal prints U flaunt so lovely
Is full of little bloody holes
Mmhmm
Bushy head mulatto breakdown
And ur lips got wet 2day
The same damn bird from London
Uh, finally had the nerve 2 say (What'd she say?)

I used 2 have mad sex n the horny mornin'
I used 2 have mad sex n the afternoon
I used 2 have mad sex when me and this mulatto go down
2 dirty up another room
Woo, huh
Mad sex
Mad sex

Fool steppin' up on the others tryin' 2 make a jealous brother
Get U nothin' but another night of vibration
1 nation under ur groove and still U can't break my cool

I see U at another party
Once again the talk of the town
Break another heart, U sorry skench
1 day U're gonna tumble down, down, down, down
Bushy head mulatto breakup
And U never really knew my name
What good is time if U take up
Every day 2 complain?

Oh, I used 2 have mad sex n the horny mornin'
I used 2 have mad sex n the afternoon
I used 2 have mad sex when me and this mulatto go down
2 dirty up another room
Oh, I used 2 have mad sex n the horny mornin'
Ooh, I used 2 have mad sex n the afternoon
I used 2 have mad sex when me and this mulatto go down
2 dirty up another room, dirty up another... room (Mad sex)
Yeah yeah, oh yeah (Mad sex)
Oh yeah, oh yeah
I used 2 have mad sex
I used 2 have mad sex
I used 2 have mad sex
Mad sex
Dirty up another room (Dirty, dirty, dirty)
Mad sex
Mad sex
Dirty, dirty (Mad sex)
Mad sex

Until U're In My Arms Again
All of my life I've never wanted anyone like I wanted U
Every night I said a prayer 2 God and His angels, I'm sure they knew
The many tears that I'd have 2 cry
If I ever had 2 leave ur side

Until U're n my arms again
I know this pain will never end
This broken heart will never mend
Until U're n my arms again

Every mornin' when I awaken, I imagine U sleepin' n ur bed
Wrong or right the reason U're taken from my embrace
Well, it's never said
Cuz every day that U don't return
Is another day that my heart just yearns and yearns

That's why until U're n my arms again
I know this pain will never end
This broken heart will never mend
Until U're n my arms again, oh

If life remains a mystery then there's no reason 2 the rhyme
And U, U'll never know what U mean 2 me till U're mine, all mine
Until U're n my arms again

Until U're (n my), until U're (n my), until U're n my arms again! Yeah!
(I know this pain will never end) Never, never gonna end!
(This broken heart will never mend) Never gonna mend
Until U're back, right back n my arms again (Until U're n my arms again)
I'll never see U like others see
I know that U'll come back 2 me
I know U're gonna come right back 2 me (And come on back 2 me)
And this time U will never leave my arms again
Until U're n my arms again
Come on back, baby
Come on back, come on back
Until U're n my arms again

Until U're n my arms again

When U Love Somebody
Ba ba ba...
Ooh...
Ba ba ba...

I was the 1 sleepin' all alone when U were at the party
I was the 1 waitin' by the phone when U were with somebody
Now here U come again with ur heart n ur hands
Confessin' all of ur sins, yeah
The same tired line that I've heard a dozen times
But still I've got 2 give n, ooh

Cuz when U love somebody, mmhmm
Every now and then it might rain
When U love somebody, ooh
With every sun shower, there's pain
Whenever something's lost, something's gained
When U love somebody, ooh
When U love someone, mmm

U were the 1 lookin' 4 some action
I was just lookin' 4 U
Ooh
"Who needs love when U got protection?"
Quote, unquote ur point of view
Ooh
All my partners say that I need 2 dismiss ya until they see U smile
Such a pretty smile
All them fools r buggin' cuz they just want ur lovin'
N the backseat, huh, 4 a little while

But I don't care cuz when U love somebody
Every now and then it might rain
When U love somebody
With every sun shower, there's pain, ooh
Whenever something's lost, something's gained
When U love somebody, ooh
When U love someone, yeah
Tell me

Ooh
Check me out on the floor
So what? U got me open
Yeah, do ur dance
But I'm the 1 U're dancin' 4
And U know this
Round and round, don't stop it
And U know this, yeah yeah
Up and down, U got it

Cuz when U love somebody
Every now and then it might rain
When U love somebody (Oh)
With every sun shower, there's pain, ooh (Baby, a little pain...)
Whenever something's lost, something's gained
(Baby, ooh but every now and then)
U got 2 think about what U gain (Think U don't?)

Ahh!
When U love somebody (Yeah, when U love somebody) (Ooh)
Every now and then it might rain (Ooh, might rain)
When U love somebody (Pourin' down, down on me)
With every sun shower, there's pain (Come on, wet me rain)
Whenever something's lost, something's gained
When U love somebody, yeah
When U love somebody, mmm (So sweet)
When U love somebody, oh (It's complete)
When U love somebody, ooh (Well) (So nice)
When U love somebody (It's paradise)

When U love somebody
Round and round, don't stop it

Round and round, don't stop the poundz
Cuz a brother gettin' down here lately
Freedom agrees with us all, U see
N a state of mind that's weightless
See, on the quantum tip I flipped on the notion
Of when the Adam split, we got Eve (Mm)
Duality's now a groupie with a backstage pass
And they ain't gonna leave till they get some
From grace we fall
Referring 2 the objects on the wall
I have a picture of my hat, my coat, my ballz
Around and round, around and round
Huh, don't stop the poundz
Yeah, cuz a brother gettin' down here lately

Shoo-Bed-Ooh
So U thought U just might lose ur mind 2day
Brother pushin' dat game on ya as if U wanna play
Askin' U every other sentence if them titties r real
1 tramp even had the nerve 2 touch 'em as if U wanted 2 feel

Shoo-bed-ooh, shoo-bed-ooh, ooh!
Shoo-bed-ooh, shoo-bed-ooh, ooh!

The money that U make ain't payin' the rent so U sleep n cars
U wonder aloud if U're happy, U say, "Yeah," as if U really r
This car U drive with no gas won't take U very far
U look up n the sky and U wish upon a star

Shoo-bed-ooh, shoo-bed-ooh, ooh!
Shoo-bed-ooh, shoo-bed-ooh, ooh!

The answer 2 the question of life is a gray-hair bitch at least
Suckin' on the ebony dancer n between these dirty sheets
Spittin' out the aftertaste of a boy who might not call again
If this is the game U stood n line 4, how're U gonna win?
How're U gonna win?
Shoo-bed-ooh, shoo-bed-ooh, ooh!

So U thought he just might come every time U phone
As if U've never been lonely as if U've never been alone
How're U ever gonna win if U let 'em all see ur hand?
Playin' the Queen don't work on ur knees as if U understand

Shoo-bed-ooh, shoo-bed-ooh, ooh!
Shoo-bed-ooh, shoo-bed-ooh, ooh!
Shoo-bed-ooh, shoo-bed-ooh, ooh!
Shoo-bed-ooh, shoo-bed-ooh, ooh!

The answer 2 the question of life is a gray-hair bitch at least
Suckin' on the ebony dancer n between these dirty sheets
Spittin' out the aftertaste of a boy who might not call again
If this is the game U stood n line 4, how're U gonna win?

Shoo-bed-ooh, shoo-bed-ooh, ooh! (How're U gonna win?)
Shoo-bed-ooh, shoo-bed-ooh, ooh! (Ooh)
Shoo-bed-ooh, shoo-bed-ooh, ooh!
Shoo-bed-ooh, shoo-bed-ooh, ooh!
So U thought U just might lose ur mind 2day

Push It Up
Push it up!

Come on, uh

If U're ever down draggin' on the ground
Face twisted wit a funky frown
Let me turn U on 2 somethin' that I found 2 make u feel good, feel good
And negativity like gravity
Gotcha fallin' fast from reality
U gotta get up, put up, move up and just do what U should, U should
Realize that U r somebody
Come on, y'all, and join the party
Everybody grab a body and feel good, U should

Push it up... (Ooh, everybody's here, this is the jam of the year)
Push it up... (Ooh, everybody's here, this is the jam of the year)
Push it up...

Push it up, push it up 2 the sky
U don't have 2 have a plane 2 fly
If U listen 2 the truth and not the lie, stop cryin', cryin'
N harmony, can't U see
Every color all n the same key?
And that's the way Jah wants us 2 b, start tryin', a-tryin'
Realize that U r somebody
Come on, y'all, and join the party
Everybody grab a body and feel good, U should

Push it up... (Ooh, everybody's here, this is the jam of the year)
Push it up... (Ooh, everybody's here, this is the jam of the year)
Push it up...

Wake up ur body and move it around, come on
Yeah, huh
Where the party at n here, y'all?
Where the party goin' down n here?

Uh, now I wanna know who's ready 2 show me
Get on down with the 1 and only party ambassador
Flip styles like a spatula macktacula
More legend than a new Acura
Body tone stone while I rap 2 her
Capture her thinkin' I'm a mack 2 her
Just because I'm attracted 2 her
But the fact of the matter is the dance floor's phatter
The crowd's on fire as we push it up higher

Push it up! (Come on, y'all)
Push it up! (Put ur hands n the air)
Push it up! (Come on, y'all)
Push it up! (While The Artist turn it up, come, uh)
Yeah, huh
Break it on down (Push it, push it up)
Huh

This is the jam, this is the jam, this is the jam of the year
This is the jam, this is the jam, this is the jam of the year
Push it up {repeat}
Everybody grab a body, everybody push it up
Everybody grab a body, everybody push it up
On and on till the early morn' push it up...

Freaks On This Side
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side {repeat}
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side (Hey)
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side (Oh)
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side (Ooh baby)
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side

When U can't find the reason 4 the smoke
There's probably water n the fire
When everything U know ain't enough 2 float ur boat
And U're lookin' 4 somethin' that'll take U higher

U got 2 get down
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side
2 a brand new sound
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side
N the water U drown
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side
But the lost is found
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side (Huh, c'mon now)

When confusion tries 2 tear ur world apart
And the demons fight 4 power
That's the time U've got 2 listen 2 ur heart
No 1 knows the final hour

U got 2 get down
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side
2 a brand new sound
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side
N the water U drown
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side (Oh)
But the lost is found
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side (Oh Lord) (Na na)

When U see an illusion everywhere U look
When U know the process of creation
When U understand everything n every book
Congratulations, U're n the New Power Generation

Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side
Freaks on this side
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side
The freaks on this side
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side
The freaks on this side
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side (Ooh)

When everybody calls the truth by a different name
And the indifference between us still remains
God is love, love is God, simple and plain
Party n this way, there's so much more 2 gain

Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side (Got 2 get on down...)
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side
We drownin' (Freaks on this side)
Get on down... (The freaks on this side)
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side (Yeah, yeah)

Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side (U gotta get down)
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side (Oh)
U got 2 get down

It's the New Power Generation (Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side)
And U're groovin' 2 another jam of the year (Freaks on this side)
Think it ain't when it is (The freaks on this side)
And we b drownin'
Glug-glug like a mug (Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side)

Looka here, freaks on this side
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side
The freaks on this side
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side

Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side {repeat}

Come On

We can do this all night

I know U got a young man, U don't care about me
He's darker than quicksand, he's taller than a tree
What U need is some real lovin' instead of these young-ass fools
I got the butter 4 ur muffin, just need the keys 2 the room

Come on, baby (Shake it now)
Come on, shake it now (Come on, baby)
Come on, baby (Shake it now)

And if U wanna make love then... (C'mon)
U got 2 wear my ring (Put it on, put it on)
Cuz I don't want no mistress (Talk 2 her)
I'd much rather b bound (Tie me up, baby)
Let's find a preacher so we can get down, down, down

Come on, baby (Shake it now)
Come on, shake it now (Come on, baby)
Come on, baby (Shake it now)
Come on, shake it now (Come on, baby)

Haha, U and ur girlfriend, y'all 2 of a kind
Just runnin' these knuckleheads 3 and 4 at a time
Both of U's want babies but U still actin' wild
The 1st rule n makin' 1, U can't b no child
Instead of hittin' that Remy, why don't y'all hit the door?
I'll book us on the red-eye and we'll b good 2 go
And if every life has got a reason, U could b mine
Perfume n the bath, darlin', champagne while we dine

Come on, baby (Shake it now)
Come on, shake it now (Come on, baby)
Come on, baby (Shake it now)
Come on, shake it now (Come on, baby)

Or could it b ur girlfriend who never ever been straight?
When I ask U, "R U hungry?" - U say U already ate (Ooh)
U can play me if U wanna but U betta let me know (Let me know, baby)
I don't need 2 play the good licks if there ain't gonna b no show
I'm better off sleepin' with my guitar if U ain't gonna sing
Strapped 2 the body, makin' love 2 the strings

Ooh
Yeah, right there

Come on, baby
Come on, shake it now
Come on, baby
Come on, shake it now

Ooh, I ain't the 1

But if U're lookin' 4 a man that'll sweep U off ur tired weary feet
Mmhmm

If U're lookin' 4 a man that'll make big money and keep it all 2 himself
I ain't the 1, no no, not me, uh-uh
And if U're lookin' 4 a man that'll have 10 women
And confuse it all with his wealth, huh
Listen here, I ain't that 1, no, no no
Wait a minute

But if U're lookin' 4 a man who can share his dinero (His money)
Buy U half the town, oh
Treat every step U take as if U're walkin', huh, on holy ground
Place U, place U above all others, huh
When it comes, when it comes 2 the gettin' on down
Huh, look no further
Ooh, ur man's around, oh yes he is (He's around...)
He's standin' right here, right here
Don't U look no further, girl, oh
He's standing right here, right here

I am the 1
I am the 1

If U're lookin' 4 a man that'll make U feel like time has just begun
Ooh
A man that'll make U feel like U're the only thing that ever mattered
Underneath the sun, underneath the sun, ooh
If U're lookin' 4 somebody who will turn ur bad day n2 1 long night of fun

Wasted Kisses
Why did I waste my kisses on U, baby?
Why did I waste my kisses on U, love?
Why did I waste my kisses on U, baby?
Why did I waste my kisses on U, love?

Overdue
That's how I described the hour
The minute, the moment that I 1st laid eyes on U
I guess I knew that sooner or later this power
Would manifest itself n2 a rendezvous
Small dark room
That's where I let U smother
N front of ur gun-totin' other
Why should I care?
Cheap perfume all over those burgundy stockings
The ones I tied U up with
I shoulda just left them there
Why'd I waste my kisses on U?

Why did I waste my kisses on U, baby? {siren}

Why did I waste my kisses on U, baby? {gun fire}
Why did I waste my kisses on U, love? {scream}
Why did I waste my kisses on U, baby? {emergency surgery}
Why did I waste my kisses on U, love?
Why'd I waste my kisses on U? (Why did I waste my kisses on U, baby?)
Why did I waste my kisses on U, love? {flatline}
Why'd I waste my kisses on U? (Why did I waste my kisses on U, baby?)
Why did I waste my kisses on U, love?
