Planet Earth
Imagine holding planet Earth n the palm of ur hand
With no regard 4 ur place of birth or claim 2 any land
The only thing between us now is the truth we understand
If planet Earth was n the palm of ur hand

50 years from now what will they say about us here?
Did we care 4 the water and the fragile atmosphere?
There r only 2 kind of folk and the difference they make
The ones that give and the ones that take

Just like the countless bodies that revolve around the sun
Planet Earth must now come n2 balance with the 1
That caused it all 2 b and then we'll see His kingdom come
So shall it b written, it shall b sung

Imagine U could rid the earth of anyone U choose
Which ones would U need the most and which ones would U lose?
Do we wanna judge another, lest we b judged 2?
Careful now, the next 1 might b U
Yeah

Just like the countless bodies that revolve around the sun (All around)
Planet Earth must now come n2 balance with the 1 (Right now)
That caused it all 2 b and then we'll see His kingdom come
So shall it b written, it shall b sung

Imagine sending ur 1st born off 2 fight a war
With no good reason how it started or what they're fighting 4
(What r we fightin' 4?)
And if they're blessed 2 make it home, will they still b poor?
Pray 4 peace right now and 4evermore
Oh

Just like the countless bodies that revolve around the sun
(Ooh wee, all around the sun, yeah)
Planet Earth must now come n2 balance with the 1
(I say we got 2 with the 1...)
That caused it all 2 b and then we'll see His kingdom come
So shall it b written, it shall b sung
Oh, say it 1 more time

Just like the countless bodies that revolve around the sun (Oh)
Planet Earth must now come n2 balance with the 1 (Oh)
That caused it all 2 b and then we'll see His kingdom come
So shall it b written, it shall b sung
It shall b sung, oh yeah
Yeah...!

So shall it b written, it shall b sung

Guitar
Oh yeah!
Yeah
Uh uh

Gettin' dirty at the club again
Usually round ur waist like a chain but then
I got that call so I jumped n my car
I love U, baby, but not like I love my guitar
Uh-uh
Not like I love my guitar
No

U couldn't do it all by urself
U had 2 go and get somebody else
U're high enough 2 call me but U can't reach the bar
I love U, baby, huh, but not like I love my guitar
No
Not like I love my guitar

Oh, listen
Turn it up
Uh-huh
Yeah
Now dig

I tried 2 warn U that it's hard 2 b a star
Especially when U're drivin' other people's car
Woulda gave U mine, girl, but U took it 2 far
I love U, baby, huh, just not like I love my guitar
Whoo! Uh-uh
Not like I love my guitar
Oh

I know U love me and U wanna b friends
And if U don't at least U need 2 pretend
We're still 2gether even if we don't get that far
I love U, baby, but not like I love this guitar
I love U, baby, I love U, baby
Not like I love my guitar

I love U, baby, and I wish U well
I'll write a letter when I learn how 2 spell
Until that day, U can go 2... ha
I love U, baby
U know the rest

Aaah... whoo!

Somewhere Here On Earth
I know U're out there, I can feel ur eyes on me
I've seen that face a thousand times if only n my dreams
I know U really want me, I can feel ur hands on me
I really wanna touch U 2 n a way I'm much 2 shy 2 speak

And even though I'm all alone
4 what it's worth, U're somewhere here on earth
And I like it

I know U're out there, I can feel U getting closer 2 me
I'm just wondering what U're waiting 4, U know I am free
N this digital age, U could just page me
I know it's the rage, but it just don't engage me
Like the face 2 face
U wanna do this at urs or my place?

It's been so long since I've been with somebody
Like a million years but now U're here on earth
Oh
U're here, U're here

Somewhere here on earth
Mmm
And I like it, I like it

Listen, mm
I know U hear me like a whisper n ur ear
U don't have 2 fear me, U're everything I hold so dear
I know U already love me, U're probably just 2 cool 2 say
Somebody, somewhere put U down but that's OK, that's OK
Cuz whatever U feel, it's time 2 heal
No, no more hurt as long as I'm here on earth

The One U Wanna C
Oh

I know I ain't the 1st 2 tell ya
I sure bet I won't b the last
I know U're n a hurry, baby
So let me make this fast

Do it
I got a lot of money, I don't wanna spend it on me
I like pretty thangs, U're just as pretty as U can b
So if U ain't busy later and U want some company
I ain't tryin' 2 b a hater
But I'm the 1, I'm the 1, the 1 U wanna C
U wanna C

Let's see...
Look around U, baby
U know U've seen it all b4
Every nickel n this club lookin' 4 a dime
Nothing less, nothing more
U're 2 tall 2 b talked down 2 (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
2 over it 2 b put under (Any spell that could find)
Any spell the blind fisherman could cast
That's why I come like thunder

2 tell U I got a lot of money but I don't wanna spend it on me
I like pretty thangs and U're just as pretty as U can b
Oh, so if U ain't busy later and U want some company
I ain't tryin' 2 b a hater
But I'm the 1, I'm the 1, the 1 U wanna C (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
U wanna C (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Hey (Yeah, yeah, yeah...)
Oh, alright

U don't need 2 fix ur hair
4 somebody U don't care 4
U don't need 2 shave ur legs
If it ain't me that's knockin' at ur door
Oh, I know U ain't no concubine
I know U ain't a 1-night stand
But I don't wanna waste ur time
If U wanna get creamy, I'm the 1 U wanna C
Ooh, the 1 U wanna C, baby
Oh, the 1 U wanna C
Wanna see, wanna C
Baby please, I'm the 1 U wanna C

Whoo! (Yeah...)
Tryin' 2 b, help me (The 1 U wanna C)
U know I can bring a woman 2 her knees (Yeah...) (I'm the 1 U wanna C)
I'm the 1, baby, U wanna C (Yeah...) (The 1 U wanna)
Comin' on ya like thunder (I'm the 1 U wanna C)
Let no man put asunder, not this time (The 1 U wanna C)
Been down 1 time, been down 2 time (I'm the 1 U wanna C)
Ain't goin' down no more (I'm the 1 U wanna)
No no no... ow! (I'm the 1 U wanna C)
The 1 U wanna C
I'm the 1 U wanna C {repeat}
I'm the 1, U got me
Hey {repeat}

Future Baby Mama
Oh yeah
Hey hey, oh
Oh mama (Future baby mama)
Yeah

I've heard it said my lovers look alike
Could it b that I was lookin' 4 U?
They were cool but somethin' wasn't right
They had me fooled 4 a minute and then I saw the truth

None of them got what it takes 2 b a future baby mama
Gotta bend n the wind but don't break 2 keep ur man
Show me 1 of them and I'll make her mine with no more drama
Future baby mama, ooh

I've heard it said that I won't treat U right
U know that ain't right
But they ain't sure cuz they don't know nothin' about U
U know U want me
U're 2 secure 2 ever wanna fuss and fight
That's right
That's why ur man never ever got a reason 2 doubt U, oh

None of them got what it takes (None, baby)
2 b a future baby mama (Hey)
Bend n the wind (I gotta bend) but don't break (U got 2 bend now)
2 keep ur man (Hey)
Show me 1 of them and I'll make her mine, no more drama
Future baby mama, ooh

Yeah, I know U might b fine but I've seen it all b4
Cinderella was a waste of time then oops, she's out the door (Ooh)
2 build a house 2gether, the thing that matters most
Is under the floor, a strong foundation that lasts 4evermore

I gonna make U happy, baby (Oh yes)
Happier than happy itself
Mm (Oh yes)
U know what? If U ever need a hand
Call me, I'll help (Call me...)
Cuz I got U, wherever U wanna go
Mmhmm (Oh yes)
Paris, London, Africa, San Lucas, Mexico, U see... (Ooh yeah)
I know what U want (I know...)
What every good woman wants
A man so n love with U
He can't help but 2 flaunt U
Deep down I know what U want
U want ur girlfriends 2 hate U (Oh yes)
Cuz they can't get ur man

None of them got what it takes (They ain't got what it takes, baby)
2 b a future baby mama (No)
Gotta bend n the wind but don't break (No...)
2 keep ur man (Like the wind, like the wind)
Show me 1 of them and I'll make her mine, no more drama (No drama)
Future baby mama (What's ur name?)
Future baby mama {repeat}
Uh-huh
Now what U wanna do?

Mr. Goodnight
Mr. Mr.
I love U Mr.
Uh uh, c'mon

Call Mr. Goodnight, he'll make U feel alright (What? What?)
Make U throw ur head back and holla (Hmph)
"It's so nice, so nice" (That's right)
Better not tell ur girlfriend (Don't do it)
U can try with all ur might (3121)
Just can't keep a secret about Goodnight, Goodnight (Hey baby...)

Hey baby, sittin' all alone n my courtyard
Lookin' as if U had every right
All over the world they call me Prince
But U can call me Mr. Goodnight
Surely the dandies that escort U places imparted a rumor or 2 (Yeah)
About the parade of lovely faces that follow me, surely they do (Oh)
What say U 2 that with lips so inviting?
It's all I can do not 2 stare (Mmm)
What say U 2 them, past, present and future?
That U don't care? Uh (Yeah, I don't care)
If so, U'll b the 1st and I'll give U the keys
2 the whip of ur dreams, alright? (Mmm)
All over the world they call me Prince (Yeah)
But U can call me Mr. Goodnight

Call Mr. Goodnight, he'll make U feel alright
Make U throw ur head back and holla (Yeah)
"It's so nice, so nice"
Better not tell ur girlfriend
U can try with all ur might (Better not)
U just can't keep a secret about Goodnight, Goodnight

Now I don't wanna put U 2 sleep with a bunch of chatter
And a rap that really don't matter (No)
But now that U know who I am, U need 2 make plans
And all ur other pennies should scatter
A limousine about 2 pick U up and then take U 2 a private jet (G5) (Yeah)
And there U're gonna meet a little Spanish man
Who will offer U wine and Moët
N a hour or 2 U'll b taken 2 a suite
That will rival ur wildest dreams (Oh yeah)
And on the bed 3 dresses 2 choose 1, pick 1
Then U get a call from me (Brrrring)
Tell me which dress U chose
So I can put on, put on my matchin' suit (Oh)
All the real dimes hold ur hands up
U know how Mr. Goodnight do

Oh call Mr. Goodnight (Call him)
He'll make U feel alright
Make U throw ur head back and holla (C'mon)
"It's so nice, so nice" (Think he won't?)
(I don't want nobody else)
Better not tell ur girlfriend (Don't do it)
U can try with all ur might (3121)
Just can't keep a secret about Goodnight, Goodnight

Mm mmm (I love U, baby)
Mm mmm (I don't want nobody else)
Call Mr. Goodnight (U can call him any time at all)
Call Mr. Goodnight (Yeah...) (I love U Mr.)

MP3: Mike Philly n the band got jams at midnight (Hey)
B4 the main attraction, U'll see (Oh)
Slow it down, "Somewhere Here On Earth"
Just 2 check how ur reaction b, hmph (Ooh)
And if ur heartbeat goes up a notch or 2
There ain't no tellin' what I might do
But I've got a mind full of good intentions (Uh-oh)
And a mouth full of Raisinets (Better not tell U)
And we can watch 'Chocolat' on the big screen (Mmm)
B4 we convene n the pool (Oh yeah)
The waterfall'll wash ur cares away
Already I love U, I do

Call Mr. Goodnight, he'll make U feel alright (Mr. Mr.)
Make U throw ur head back and holla, "It's so nice, so nice"
Better not tell ur girlfriend, U can try with all ur might (Mr. Goodnight)
Just can't keep a secret about Goodnight, Goodnight

The energy n this field's been known 2 flicker lights
Alright? Mm (Oh)
A symphony with no rest, a capella moans and a bridge of sighs
Ooh, Goodnight (Call, call)
Undeterred nevertheless
A masterpiece on butterscotch thighs (Call me, call me)
Turn off the lights, turn off the lights (Oh yeah)
It's time 4 Mr. Goodnight

All The Midnights In The World
Because I turn my eye 2ward U, because I seek ur hand
Every other woman envies U and me, every other man
Alas, the circle of jealousy is coming round again
Those prickly-fingered scallywags that masquerade as friends

Make a promise this very night that they will no longer pose
A threat 2 either 1 of us then let the chapter close
4 all the midnights n the world
This 1 will serve us better if U choose 2 b my girl

Like Zuzu's petals, a wonderful life the 2 of us shall lead
The children of the future with all the spiritual food they need
The secrets that the ones b4 with grace have come and shown
2gether with love 4 1 another, we shall make them known

The number of our happy days outnumber the grains of sand
That and 12 times evermore if I could b ur man
Amethyst and rubies, crystals and black pearls
I'd trade them all just 2 spend with U all the midnights n the world
All the midnights n the world

Chelsea Rodgers
A model used 2 b a role model
Mmmm oh, ha

I don't know (Come on)
Whoo
Uh-huh
Ah... go ahead now Chelsea (Uh-huh, uh-huh)
Go ahead now
Huh, this is 4 Jersey right here
Go ahead now
Ah...

Chelsea Rodgers was a model
But she really rocked the role, yes she did
Kept her tears up n a bottle
She poured them out 2 save ur soul

Ask her what she like the most (She say)
She like 2 talk 2 Jimi's ghost (Ow)
Fantasy or bragger's boast (This girl is fly)
Chelsea's fly like coast 2 coast (Mmmm)
Hollywood or Times Square
If the party's fly, my girl is there (Yes she is)
Earth boots on and flowers n her hair
21st century hippie, Chelsea don't care

Cause Chelsea Rodgers was a model (Well)
But she really rocked the role, yes she did
She kept her tears up n a bottle
Poured them out 2 save ur soul

Try 2 catch her if U can (Come on now, 2gether)
But U never see her with 1 man
Uh, brother got 2 jump n the water
Cuz they must b baptized according 2 the master plan
B4 she give up the good thang, go ahead Chelsea
No blood diamonds or designer chic (Uh, no no)
Cuz she's 2 original from her head down 2 her feet
We can hate if U want 2, Chelsea don't eat no meat
Still got butt like a letter C, go ahead Chelsea

Chelsea Rodgers was a model
But she really rocked the role (Yeah)
She kept her tears up n a bottle
Poured them out 2 save ur soul
Go on Chelsea
Speak on that, horns
Come down now, Lee, whoo
Uh, c'mon

Next 2 her they just a fool (Oh)
Chelsea read more books than a few (Go on Chelsea)
Like Moses was a pharaoh n the 18th Dynasty
And Rome was chillin' n Carthage n 33 BCE
And the day that we stop counting, we live as long as a tree
Go ahead Chelsea, teach me
Go ahead Chelsea (Oh)
Make a promise 2 ur higher self
And get true knowledge, then fame and wealth
U don't b chasin' nobody's ghost
Of everything, make the most, c'mon

Chelsea Rodgers was a model (Yeah, yeah)
But she really rocked the role (Yeah, yeah)
Kept her tears up n a bottle (Yes she did)
Poured them out 2 save ur soul (Save ur soul, baby)
(U might as well dance)
Chelsea Rodgers was a model (Oh) (U might as well dance)
But she really rocked the role (U might as well dance)
Kept her tears up n a bottle (U might as well dance)
Poured them out 2 save ur soul

Lion Of Judah
Sitting on the floor of an all-white room feeling like the color blue
Thinkin' about the words that I can use 2 get this thru 2 U
A million mistakes and then some I've made with the words b4
I probably passed my expiration date but still I adore U
Adore U

Lookin' 4 the energy 2 take U there, the places that U wanna go
Knowing if I do, U're fully aware the press will turn it n2 a show
Everyone expected this outcome (Ooh)
But still they jump around with glee (Aah)
I guess I should b happy but I'm still not sure that U really love me...
U love me

Like the Lion of Judah, I strike my enemies down
As my God is living, surely the trumpet will sound (Ooh)
There was 1 who would stand by my side thru the good and the bad
Let that 1 stand with pride, the best that I've ever had
Like the Lion of Judah

Driving away with a smile on my face (Ooh)
Wind blowing thru my hair (Aah)
Wondering how U'll feel when U find out how much I really care (I care)
Hoping that the tears roll down ur face
When U finally grasp who we r (Who r we?)
2 gypsy bandits who only by grace came 2 b a star (A super star)
A star, that's what we r

Like the Lion of Judah, I strike my enemies down
As my God is living, surely the trumpet will sound
(Ooh) Lion of Judah
(Ooh) Lion of Judah, whoo

Like the Lion of Judah, I strike my enemies down
Like the Lion of Judah, surely U gonna hear the trumpet sound
Hear the trumpet sound
Yeah, oh
Lion of Judah, Judah, yeah
Lion of Judah
Lion of Judah

Resolution
Come with it
Ooh, ooh (Yeah)
Ooh (Oh)
Aah

The main problem with war is that nobody ever wins
The next generation grows up and learns how 2 do it all over again
No matter who started the argument, just matters how each 1 ends
How many people really want resolution?

The main problem with people is they never do what they say
1 minute they want peace then do everything 2 make it go away
Droppin' bombs on each other n the act of saving face
Tell me, now people, how is that resolution? (Ahh)

Either U do or U don't, either U will or U won't
Making amends is a difficult pill 2 swallow (Make amends)

What can we lose if we try?
With no water, a flower dies
With love n the lead, resolution will follow
Oh yes it will
Resolution
Oh yeah
Ooh, ooh, ooh, aah

Love is like a circle, no beginning and no end
A broken heart will mend if U love it like ur best friend
Handle ur heart with care, it's as delicate as the wind
When the storms come again, pray 4 resolution

Either U will or U won't (Either U will or U won't)
Either U do or U don't really want resolution (Either U do or U don't)
Come on, everybody, all over the world (La la la la la la)
All over the world (Do do do do do)
Tell me, how many people really want resolution?
