Nombre: Creepin’.

Letra:

I can hear you sighin’, sayin’ you’ll stay beside me, why must it be, that you always creep… Into my dreams. On the beach we’re sittin’, huggin’, squeezin’, kissin’, why must it be, that you always creep… Into my dreams, in my dreams.

When I’m sleep at night babaa, I feel those moments of ecstasy, when you sleep at night babaa… I wonder do I creep into your dreams, or could it be I sleep alone in my fantasy. Oh, love is so amazing, oh, oh, oh, ah, ah… Guess you will be stayin’, so let it be, that you always creep…Into my dreams, in my dreams.

When I’m sleep at night babaa, I feel those moments of ecstasy, when you sleep at night babaa… I wonder do I creep into your dreams, or could it be I sleep alone in my fantasy. Oh, love is so amazing, oh, oh, oh, ah, ah… Guess you will be stayin’, so let it be, that you always creep… Into my dreams, in my dreams, in my dreams…

Nombre: Me and Mr Jones.

· · ·

Letra:

Nobody stands in between me and my man, it’s me, and Mr Jones (Mm and Mr Jones). What kind of fukery is this? You made me miss the sick rick gig (oh slick rick), you thought I didn’t love you when I did (when I did), can’t believe you played me out like that (Ahhh).

No you ain’t worth guest list, plus one of all them girls you kiss (all them girls), you can’t keep lying to yourself like this (to yourself), can’t believe you played yourself (out) like this. Rulers one thing but come Brixton, nobody stands in between me and my man, ‘cause it’s me and Mr Jones (me and Mr Jones).

What kind of fukery are we? Nowadays you don’t mean dick to me (dick to me), I might let you make it up to me (make it up), who’s playing Saturday? What kind of fukery are you? Side from Sammy you’re my best black Jjw, but I could swear that we were through (we were through), I still want to wonder ‘bout the things you do.

Mr Destiny 9 and 14, nobody stands in between me and my man, ‘cause it’s Mm and Mr Jones (Me and Mr Jones).

Erykah Badu. Otherside of the game.

octubre 29, 2009


Video en directo. Canción.

Nombre: Otherside of the game.

· · ·

Letra:

Whatcha gonna do when they come for you, work ain’t honest but it pays the bills, what we gonna do when they come for you, gave me the life that I came to live. Do I really, want my baby, brother tell me what to do, I know you got to get your hustle on, so I pray, I understand the game, sometimes, and I love you strong, but… What you gonna do when they come for you, work ain’t honest but it pays the bills, what we gonna do when they come for you, god I can’t stand life withoutcha.

Now, me and baby got this situation, see brotha got this complex occupation, and it ain’t that he don’t have education, cause I was right there at his graduation. Now, I ain’t sayin’ that this life don’t work, but it’s me and baby that he hurts, cause I tell him right, he thinks I’m wrong, but I love him strong. He gave me the life that I came to live, gave me the song that I came to give, pressure on me, but the seed had grown.

I can’t make it on my own, summer came around and the flowers bloomed, he became the sun, I became the moon, precious gifts that we both received, or could this be make believe. Whatcha gonna do when they come for you, work ain’t honest but it pays the bills, what we gonna do when they come for you, gave me the life that I came to live.

Don’t I know there’s confusion, god’s gonna see us through, peace out to revolution, but we paid though. Don’t you worry, I know there’s confusion, the work ain’t honest but it pays the bills, don’t you worry… Gave me the life that I came to live, don’t you worry… The work ain’t honest but it pays the bills, don’t you worry…

Sade. Maureen.

octubre 27, 2009

Canción.

Nombre: Maureen.

· · ·

Letra:

Maureen, it’s hard to explain, I’m never going to see you again, and you’ll never meet my new friends. Maureen, I miss you, I just can’t explain, I’m never going to see you again, I wish you could meet my new friends. Walking along the subway listening to, loving you is easy acapella, you were a souped-up car in that rent-a-go-kart town, and I miss you, Maureen.

We’re as thick as thieves, Maureen, remember when my mother said to me, Sade don’t you come home to late, till you’re back I stay awake. And Maureen, with the boys you could tell at a glance, you’d say he looks good, let’d hope he can dance, wicky wacky party to the..Where are we going tonight, and what will you be wearing, shone like a souped-up car in that rent-a-go-kart town, and I miss you maureen, I miss you girl.

You were my best friend, I’m never going to see you again, Maureen, and you’ll never meet my new friends, you really were a pearl in my world, Maureen. Maureen, It’s hard to explain, you’ll never call round to see me again. You’ll never meet my new friends. Never meet my new friends, never meet my new friends, never meet my new friends.

The Marvelettes. Danger! Heartbreak dead ahead.

octubre 20, 2009

Canción en video de imágenes. Canción.

Nombre: Danger! Heartbreak dead ahead.

· · ·

Letra:

When you give more than you get, you’re in danger (you’re in danger), you may find that you’re in love with a stranger (with a stranger), for who knows what evil lurks within the hearts of men? It’s vanity, insanity to play when you can’t win, when you find that you’re losing, it’s time to get on moving, ‘cause there’s danger: heartbreak dead ahead.

It only takes one second, girl, to learn (to learn), that playing with fire will get you burned (get you burned), now girl, don’t you be foolish, they say that love is blind, but it’s clear as the highway sign, that reads “Danger: heartbreak dead ahead”, heartbreak dead ahead.

Read the sign, girl; you’d better mind, girl, yeah, danger: heartbreak dead ahead. Once the lying starts, start packing up your heart, listen to me, girl, when there’s nothing to be gained, don’t keep goin’ on in vain, ‘cause there’s danger: heartbreak dead ahead, I said there’s danger, I said there’s danger …& fade.
