My Way

And now, the end is here
And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I'll say it clear
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain
I've lived a life that's full
I traveled each and ev'ry highway
And more, much more than this, I did it my way
 
Regrets, I've had a few
But then again, too few to mention
I did what I had to do and saw it through without exemption
I planned each charted course, each careful step along the byway
And more, much more than this, I did it my way
 
Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all, when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out
I faced it all and I stood tall and did it my way
 
I've loved, I've laughed and cried
I've had my fill, my share of losing
And now, as tears subside, I find it all so amusing
To think I did all that
And may I say, not in a shy way,
'Oh, no, oh, no, not me, I did it my way'
 
For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught
To say the things he truly feels and not the words of one who kneels
The record shows I took the blows and did it my way!
 
Yes, it was my way

What Did You Learn In School Today?

What did you learn in school today,
Dear little boy of mine?
What did you learn in school today,
Dear little boy of mine?
I learned that Washington never told a lie.
I learned that soldiers seldom die.
I learned that everybody's free.
And that's what the teacher said to me.
That's what I learned in school today.
That's what I learned in school.
 
What did you learn in school today,
Dear little boy of mine?
What did you learn in school today,
Dear little boy of mine?
I learned that policemen are my friends.
I learned that justice never ends.
I learned that murderers die for their crimes.
Even if we make a mistake sometimes.
That's what I learned in school today.
That's what I learned in school.
 
What did you learn in school today,
Dear little boy of mine?
What did you learn in school today,
Dear little boy of mine?
I learned our government must be strong.
It's always right and never wrong.
Our leaders are the finest men.
And we elect them again and again.
That's what I learned in school today.
That's what I learned in school.
 
What did you learn in school today,
Dear little boy of mine?
What did you learn in school today,
Dear little boy of mine?
I learned that war is not so bad.
I learned of the great ones we have had.
We fought in Germany and in France.
And some day I might get my chance.
That's what I learned in school today.
That's what I learned in school.
 

Youth

Youth is the lion we can't tame,
 
We've got that wild blood in our veins.
 
Youth is the fire, you're my flame
 
And it's just me, just you
 
Caught in the fire of youth.
 
You don't see Cadillac's in my hometown
 
Spent wasted nights on this ground
 
Spilled our hearts out on these streets
 
Singing, ‘Time can wait for me, for me'
 
Bruised knuckles here in your name,
 
Stole glory back and lost the shame
 
When those kids jumped ship, we stayed
 
We stayed the same…
 
cos they say…
 
Youth is the lion we can't tame,
 
We've got that wild blood in our veins.
 
Youth is the fire, you're my flame
 
And it's just me, just you
 
Caught in the fire of youth.
 
You don't see Cadillac's in my hometown
 
Spent wasted nights on this ground
 
Spilled our hearts out on these streets
 
Singing, ‘Time can wait for me, for me'
 
Shake neighborhoods til the AM
 
Wake up with heavy words sent
 
With hearts on our sleeves we scream…
 
Youth is the lion we can't tame,
 
We've got that wild blood in our veins.
 
Youth is the fire, you're my flame
 
And it's just me, just you
 
Caught in the fire of youth.
 
In the fire of youth.Youth is the lion we can't tame,
 
We've got that wild blood in our veins.
 
Youth is the fire, you're my flame
 
And it's just me, just you
 
Caught in the fire of youth.
 

L'Anamour

Aucun Boeing sur mon transit
Aucun bateau sous mon transat
Je cherche en vain la porte exacte
Je cherche en vain le mot exit
Je chante pour les transistors
Ce récit de l’étrange histoire
De tes anamours transitoires
De Belle au Bois Dormant qui dort
Je t’aime et je crains
De m’égarer
Et je sème des grains
De pavot sur les pavés
De l’anamour
Tu sais ces photos de l’Asie
Que j’ai prises à deux cents Asa
Maintenant que tu n’es pas là
Leurs couleurs vives ont pâli
J’ai cru entendre les hélices
D’un quadrimoteur mais hélas
C’est un ventilateur qui passe
Au ciel du poste de police
Je t’aime et je crains
De m’égarer
Et je sème des grains
De pavot sur les pavés
De l’anamour
Je t’aime et je crains
De m’égarer
Et je sème des grains
De pavot sur les pavés
De l’anamour
 

Lonely Boy

I'm just a lonely boy
Lonely and blue
I'm all alone
With nothin' to do
 
I've got everything
You could think of
But all I want
Is someone to love
 
Someone, yes, someone to love
Someone to kiss
Someone to hold
At a moment like this
 
I'd like to hear
Somebody say
I'll give you my love
Each night and day
 
I'm just a lonely boy
Lonely and blue
I'm all alone
With nothin' to do
 
I've got everything
You could think of
But all I want
Is someone to love
 
Somebody, somebody
Somebody, please
Send her to me
I'll make her happy
Just wait and see
 
I prayed so hard
To the heavens above
That I might find
Someone to love
 
I'm just a lonely boy
lonely and blue
I'm all alone
With nothin' to do
 
I've got everything
You could think of
But all I want
Is someone to love
 

God Takes It

I can't caress you now
I can't hold a smile
I can't embrace you til the end of our life
 
I can't touch you now
I can't yarn you now
I can't embrace you til the end of our life
 
Love is over, take it
Love is over, take it
Love is over, take it
God takes it
 
I can't be with you now
Not in the here and now
I can't share with you how I try to get by/survive/I'm getting by
 
I can't believe that I
Won't laugh with you 'bout
The funny twists of life that made us cry
 
Love is over, take it
Love is over, take it
Love is over, take it
God takes it
 
I can recall you now
I can hope that I
Will be with you in another life
 
I can see you now
I know you're in the sky
I can love you until the end of time
 
Love is taking over
Love is taking over
Love is taking over now
 

Eye Of The Tiger

Risin' up, back on the street
Took my time, took my chances
Went the distance
Now I'm back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive
 
So many times, it happens too fast
You trade your passion for glory
Don't lose your grip
On the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive
 
It's the eye of the tiger
It's the thrill of the fight
Risin' up to the challenge
Of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And his fortune must always be
Eye of the tiger
 
Face to face, out in the heat
Hangin' tough, stayin' hungry
They stack the odds
Still we take to the street
For the kill with the skill to survive
 
It's the eye of the tiger
It's the thrill of the fight
Risin' up to the challenge
Of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And his fortune must always be
Eye of the tiger
 
Risin' up straight to the top
Had the guts, got the glory
Went the distance
Now I'm not gonna stop
Just a man and his will to survive
 
It's the eye of the tiger
It's the thrill of the fight
Risin' up to the challenge
Of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And his fortune must always be
Eye of the tiger
 
The eye of the tiger
The eye of the tiger
The eye of the tiger
The eye of the tiger
 

The Fall

These words are supposed to be simple
But it seems that’s not the case
This page is staring back at me
I’m afraid to put a mark on its face
 
Oh, I’m just trying to introduce you
To this idea that I’ve grown used to
It’s like sharing a dream with someone
Once you say it out loud it can’t be undone
 
I jump off and into your arms
But I can’t trust the fall
Take my voice, I’m giving it though
I don’t feel safe at all
 
I can’t trust the fall
 
It’s like waking up in surgery
I can’t seem to see right past the lights and I’m
So scared to take a knife to my chest
Let you see the heart that's inside
 
Oh, I’m just trying to introduce you
To this idea that I’ve grown used to
It’s like sharing a dream with someone
Once you say it out loud it can’t be undone
 
Once you say it out loud it can’t be undone
 
I can’t trust the fall
 
I jump off and into your arms
But I can’t trust the fall
Take my voice, I’m giving it though
I don’t feel safe at all
 
I jump off and into your arms
But I can’t trust the fall
Take my voice, I’m giving it though
I don’t feel safe at all
 
I can’t trust the fall
I can’t trust the fall
 
It’s like sharing a dream with someone
Once you say it out loud it can’t be undone
 
I can’t trust the fall
 
I can’t trust the fall
 
I jump off and into your arms
But I can’t trust the fall (I can’t trust the fall)
Take my voice, I’m giving it though
I don’t feel safe at all (don't feel safe at all)
 
I jump off and into your arms
But I can’t trust the fall
Take my voice, I’m giving it though (I can’t trust the fall)
I don’t feel safe at all
 
It’s like sharing a dream with someone
Once you say it out loud it can’t be undone
 
I can’t trust the fall
 

Nas Is Like

'Nas is . . .' - [Nas (7x)]
 
[Nas]
Freedom or jail, clips inserted, a baby's bein born
Same time my man is murdered, the beginning and end
As far as rap go, it's only natural, I explain
My plateau, and also, what defines my name
First it was Nasty, but times have changed
Ask me now, I'm the artist, but hardcore, my science for pain
I spent time in the game, kept my mind on fame
Saw fiends shoot up, and do lines of cocaine
Saw my close friends shot, flatline am I sane?
That depends, carry Mac-10's to practice my aim
On rooftops, tape cd covers to trees
Line the barrel up with your weak picture then squeeze
Street scriptures for lost souls, in the crossroads
To the corner thugs hustlin for cars that cost dough
To the big dogs livin large, takin it light
Pushin big toys, gettin nice, enjoyin your life
is what you make it, suicide, few try to take it
Belt tied around they neck in jail cells naked
Heaven and hell, rap legend, presence is felt
And of course N - A - S are the letters that spell . . .
NAS, NAS
 
[Chorus: scratching by DJ Premier (2X)]
 
'Nas is like life or death.. I'm a rebel.. '
'My poetry's deep, I never fell..'
'Nas is like.. half man half amazing..'
'No doubt..'
 
[Nas]
'Nas is like..' Earth Wind & Fire, rims and tires
Bulletproof glass, inside is the realest driver
Planets in orbit, line em up with the stars
Tarot cards, you can see the pharaoh Nas
'Nas is like..' Iron Mike, messiah type
Before the Christ, after the death
The last one left, let my cash invest in stock
Came a along way from blastin, techs on blocks
Went from Seiko to Rolex, ownin acres
From the projects with no chips, to large cake dough
Dimes, givin fellatio, siete zeros
Bet my nine spit for the pesos
But what's it all worth, can't take it when you under this Earth
Rich men died and tried, but none of it worked
They just rob your grave, I'd rather be alive and paid
Before my number's called, history's made
Some'll fall, but I rise, thug or die
Makin choices, that determine my future under the sky
To rob steal or kill, I'm wondering why
It's a dirty game, is any man worthy of fame?
Much to success to ya, even if you wish me the opposite
Sooner or later we'll all see who the prophet is
 
[Chorus]
 
[Nas]
'Nas is like..' Sex to a nympho, but nothin sweet
I'm like beef, bustin heat through your windows
I'm like a street sweeper, greenleaf reaper
Like Greeks in Egypt, learnin somethin deep from they teachers
I'm like crime, like your nine, your man you would die for
Always got you, I'm like Pop Duke you would cry for
I'm like a whole lot of loot, I'm like crisp money
Corporate accounts from a rich company
I'm like ecstasy for ladies, I'm like all races
combined in one man; like the '99 summer jam
Bulletproof Hummer man
I'm like being locked down around new faces, and none of em fam'
I'm the feelin of a millionaire spendin a hundred grand
I'm a poor man's dream, a thug poet
Live it, and I write down and I watch it blow up
Y'all know what I'm like, y'all play it your system every night
Now..
 
[Chorus]
 

Soul Suckin' Jerk (Version 1)

I'm standing right here with a beer in my hand
And my mouth is full of sand and I don't understand
Big fat fingers pointing into my face
Telling me to get busy cleaning up this place
Fourteen days, I been sleeping in a barn
Better get a paycheck tattooed on my arm
 
Whistling Dixie with the Dixie cup filled
With the barbecue sauce and the dental floss chilled
I got bent like a wet cigarette
And she's coming after me with a butterfly net
Riding on a bloodhound, ringing a bell
Black cat wrapped and I'm rolling up a hill
Pencil in my leg and I'm trying not to beg
Taking turns breaking words with the bacon and eggs
 
Now they got me in a birdcage flapping my jaw
Like a pretzel in the stars just waiting to fall
So give me what I got to get so I can go
'Cause I ain't washing dishes in a ditch no more
 
'Cause I ain't gonna work for no soul-suckin jerk
I'm gonna take it all back and I ain't sayin' jack
'Cause I ain't gonna work for no soul-suckin jerk
I'm gonna take it all back and I ain't sayin' jack
 
You know it! (That's right)
Rockin' the town like a mouldy crouton
(Flying through the air with grease)
 
I got a job making money for the man
Throwing chicken in a bucket with a soda pop can
Puke-green uniform on my back
I had to set it on fire in a vat of chicken fat
I leaped on the counter like a bird with no hair
Running through the minimall in my underwear
 
I got lost downtown, couldn't find a ride home
The sun went down, I got frozen to the bone
'Til a hooker let me share her fake fur coat
As I took a little nap, the cops picked up this fool
I tried to explain I was only trying to get warm
 
I knew I never ever should have burned my uniform
He said, 'Too bad, better bite the bullet hard, son.'
I didn't have no teeth, so I stole his gun
And I crawled out the window with my shadow and a spoon
Dancing on the roof, shooting holes in the moon
 
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah

Matchstalk Men and Matchstalk Cats and Dogs (Lowry's Song)

He painted Salford's smoky tops
On cardboard boxes from the shops
And parts of Ancoats where I used to play
I'm sure he once walked down our street
'Cause he painted kids who had nowt on their feet
The clothes they wore had all seen better days
 
Now they said his works of art were dull
'No room, old lad, the walls are full'
But Lowry didn't care much anyway
They said he just paints cats and dogs
And matchstalk men in boots and clogs
And Lowry said, 'That's just the way they'll stay'
 
And he painted matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
He painted kids on the corner of the street that wore
sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits
Outside them factory gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
 
Now canvas and brushes were wearing thin
When London started calling him
To come on down and wear the old flat cap
They said, 'Tell us all about your ways
And all about them Salford days
Is it true you're just an ordinary chap?'
 
And he painted matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
He painted kids on the corner of the street that wore
sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits
Outside them factory gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
 
Now Lowry's hang upon the wall
Beside the greatest of them all
And even the Mona Lisa takes a bow
This tired old man with hair like snow
Told Northern folk it's time to go
The fever came and the good Lord mopped his brow
 
And he left us matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
He left us kids on the corner of the street that wore
sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits
Outside them pearly gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
 
And he left us matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
He left us kids on the corner of the street that wore
sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits
Outside them pearly gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
 
And he left us matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
He left us kids on the corner of the street that wore
sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits
Outside them pearly gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
 
And he left us matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
He left us kids on the corner of the street that wore
sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits
Outside them pearly gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
 

La vie qui chante

Bien des gens oublient trop souvent
Que tout au bout de leurs tourments
Ils entendront la vie qui chante
Dans un cri de joie qui ruisselle
Comme un torrent sous le soleil
Ils entendront la vie qui chante
 
Alors ne doutons plus de rien
À l’instant où l’on tend nos mains
À l’enfant qui rit aux éclats
Et qui se jète dans nos bras
 
Tout peut encore nous arriver
On se remet à espérer
En écoutant la vie qui chante
 
Et quand parfois plus rien ne va
Malgré tout nous ne devons pas
La croire enfuie, la vie qui chante
 
C’est une ronde sans frontières
Pour tous les hommes de la Terre
Qui n’ont jamais cessé de croire
Qu’il n’est jamais, jamais trop tard
 
Et l’on ne doute plus de rien
À l’instant où l’on tend nos mains
Pour donner le meilleur de nous
Alors la vie chante avec nous
 

My Opening Farewell

A lady stands before an open window
Staring so far away
She can almost feel the southern winds blow
Almost touching her restless day
 
She turns from her window to me
Sad smile her apology
Sad eyes reaching to the door
 
Daylight loses to another evening
And still she spares me the word goodbye
And sits alone beside me, fighting her feelings
Struggles to speak, but in the end can only cry
 
Suddenly, it's so hard to find
The sound of the words to speak her troubled mind
So I'm offering ease to her as if to be kind
There's a train every day, leaving either way
There's a world, you know
There's a way to go
And you'll soon be gone, that's just as well
This is my opening farewell
 
A child's drawings left there on the table
And a woman's silk is lying on the floor
And I will keep them clean if I were able
To lock her safe behind this open door
 
But suddenly, it's so clear to me
That I'd ask you to see what she may never see
And now my kind words find their way back to me
There's a train every day, leaving either way
There's a world, you know
Got a way to go
And I'll soon believe, it's just as well
This is my opening farewell
 

Can't Help Falling in Love With You

Wise men say only fools rush in
But I can't help falling in love with you
Shall I stay
Would it be a sin
If I can't help falling in love with you
 
Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
Some things are meant to be
Take my hand, take my whole life too
For I can't help falling in love with you
 
Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
Some things are meant to be
 
Take my hand, take my whole life too
For I can't help falling in love with you
For I can't help falling in love with you
 

Cannonball

[Verse 1 - ZZ Ward]
I hear the rain on the rooftop
Crown and Coke on a table by my bed
I'm lying here like it's my grave
A bag of bones with a fire in my head
Oh, yes, I am
 
[Pre-Chorus - ZZ Ward]
I tell you, 'No', then I start to give in
You tear me down, then we do it all over again
And again
 
[Chorus - ZZ Ward]
I'm down on my knees and I'm screamin'
I'm a fiend, and I'm beggin' you, please
If you don't love me, baby, just stop
Tell me, how can it be I'm still bleedin'?
I can't quit, I need help, set me free
Shook me up 'cause you know that I'll cry
Fly, then I fall every time that you call
I'm nothin' but your cannonball (cannonball)
 
[Verse 2 - Fantastic Negrito]
When you was hungry
Girl, you came knockin' at my door, yeah
I fed you misery 'til you kept comin' on back
And comin' on back for more, mmm...
My heart was homeless
My lust, for vampires and whores
Still you kept comin' on back for more
C'mon, girl
 
[Chorus - ZZ Ward (Fantastic Negrito)]
I'm down on my knees and I'm screamin'
I'm a fiend, and I'm beggin' you, please
If you don't love me, baby, just stop (No, no, no...)
Tell me, how can it be I'm still bleedin'?
I can't quit, I need help, set me free
(I want to get outta here, I wanna go home)
Shook me up, oh whoa whoa...
 
[Musical Interlude]
 
[Chorus - ZZ Ward (Fantastic Negrito)]
Fly, then I fall every time that you call
I'm nothin' but your cannonball (Your cannonball)
 
[Outro - ZZ Ward (Fantastic Negrito)]
I tell you, 'No', then I start to give in (Let's do)
You tear me down, then we do it all over again
(Let's do it all over again, mmm...)
 

Domino

[Verse 1 - ZZ Ward]
I close my eyes like I don't know
I count the hours 'til the sun's burning gold
I fill your bed so it ain't cold
I know that heartbreak is the loneliest road
 
[Chorus - ZZ Ward & Fitz]
I think about it
All through the night
All through the night, whoa
All through the night
All through the night, whoa
All through the night
All through the night, whoa
One by one, they fall so fast, I let 'em go
Domino
Domino
 
[Verse 2 - Fitz]
I close my eyes, don't wanna read
Between the lines you keep on keeping from me
I fill your bed, it's getting old
I know that heartbreak is the loneliest road
 
[Chorus - ZZ Ward & Fitz]
I think about it
All through the night
All through the night, whoa
All through the night
All through the night, whoa
All through the night
All through the night, whoa
One by one, they fall so fast, I let 'em go
Domino
Domino
(Woo, woo)
 
[Verse 1 - ZZ Ward & Fitz]
I close my eyes like I don't know
I count the hours 'til the sun's burning gold
I fill your bed so it ain't cold
I know that heartbreak is the loneliest road
 
[Bridge - ZZ Ward & Fitz ]
I line 'em up (I line 'em up), they're tumbling down
And when they leave, the truth is getting too loud
'Cause when you start, can't stop the train
On broken tracks, it's all feeling the same
 
[Chorus - ZZ Ward & Fitz]
All through the night
All through the night
All through the night
All through the night
All through the night
All through the night
One by one, they fall so fast, I let 'em go
Domino
Domino
(Woo, woo)
 

Let It Burn

[Verse 1]
When my heart it is broken
And my soul it is weak
You're standin' above me
With your heel at my cheek
 
[Verse 2]
And oh, merciful sinners
You kick me when I'm down
I'm tryin' to make you love me
But we're both hell-bound
 
[Chorus]
Please, just let go, 'cause I'm on the edge
The sky, it is turning a crimson red (Ah-woo)
Flick on the lighter, pull it 'til it hurts
You started the fire, baby, I'mma let it burn
 
[Hook]
Burn, burn, burn, I'mma let it burn (Wooh, yeah)
Burn, burn, burn, I'mma let it burn (Wooh)
Burn, burn, burn, I'mma let it burn (Wooh, yeah)
Burn, burn, burn, I'mma let it burn
 
[Verse 3]
From the moment I failed you
You were onto the next
Running fast with the Devil
I was under your hex
 
[Chorus]
Please, just let go, 'cause I'm on the edge
The sky, it is turning a crimson red (Ah-woo)
Flick on the lighter, pull it 'til it hurts
You started the fire, baby, I'mma let it burn
 
[Hook]
Burn, burn, burn, I'mma let it burn (Wooh, yeah)
Burn, burn, burn, I'mma let it burn (Wooh)
Burn, burn, burn, I'mma let it burn (Wooh, yeah)
Burn, burn, burn, I'mma let it burn
 
[Bridge]
I know you feel it because it's getting so hot
Out of control, see? I'm gonna blow up your spark
You lit the spark, now you ain't stopping these flames
You rolled the dice, now I'm gonna murder this game
 
[Chorus]
Please, just let go, 'cause I'm on the edge
The sky, it is turning a crimson red Ah-woo)
Flick on the lighter, pull it 'til it hurts
You started the fire, baby, I'mma let it burn
 
[Hook]
Burn, burn, burn, I'mma let it burn (Wooh, yeah)
Burn, burn, burn, I'mma let it burn (Wooh)
Burn, burn, burn, I'mma let it burn (Wooh, yeah)
Burn, burn, burn, I'mma let it burn
 

Bag of Bones

[Verse 1]
Baby, you're my bourbon honey
Baby, you're my Cherry Coke
My mystery man from Montgomery
My favorite liquor is strong, yeah [?]
 
[Pre-Chorus]
I never needed nobody
I hear your train on the tracks
You snuck right in, caught you, caught it
No falling in love, and it's too late to fall back
 
[Chorus]
What should I do when you leave me?
What should I do when you're gone?
If you ain't next to me, darlin'
Oh, then I'm nothing but a bag of bones
 
[Hook]
Ooh-wah, ooh-wah, ooh-wah, ooh, ooh
Ooh-wah, ooh-wah, ooh-wah, ooh, ooh
 
[Verse 2]
Baby, when you are beside me
It's like we're walking on stars
Baby, when you are inside me
You know we light up the dark
 
[Pre-Chorus]
I never needed nobody
I hear your train on the tracks
You snuck right in, caught you, caught it
No falling in love, and it's too late to fall back
 
[Chorus]
What should I do when you leave me?
What should I do when you're gone?
If you ain't next to me, darlin'
Oh, then I'm nothing but a bag of bones
 
[Hook]
Ooh-wah, ooh-wah, ooh-wah, ooh, ooh
Ooh-wah, ooh-wah, ooh-wah, ooh, ooh
 
[Bridge]
Baby, don't you leave me
'Cause I can't keep hanging onto your shadow
Baby, don't leave me, I'm so blind
I can't see that I'm losing, losing the battle
 
[Chorus]
What should I do when you leave me?
What should I do when you're gone?
If you ain't next to me, darlin'
Oh, I'm nothing but a—
Nothing bag of bones
What should I do when you leave me?
What should I do when you're gone?
If you ain't next to me, darlin'
Oh, then I'm nothing but a bag of bones
 
[Hook/Outro]
Ooh-wah, ooh-wah, ooh-wah, ooh, ooh
Ooh-wah, ooh-wah, ooh-wah, ooh, ooh
 

Je m'emmerde

La banlieue sud devenait grise
Ça tombait bien ma mine aussi
J'avais le look tour de Pise
Penché qu'j'étais sur mes ennuis
 
Moi j'avais soif de connaissances
Mais Nicolas était fermé
Je prenais mon mal en patience
Ils auraient pus m'laisser les clefs
 
Je pensais à des tas de trucs
On envoie des keums sur la lune
Et moi je n'ai droit qu'á un tuc
Pour espéré avoir d'la thune
 
A vingt balles le pack de canettes
Et vu qu'il m'en faut deux par jour
Quand tu vois c'que l'état me jette
Comprends moi si j'pèse plus très lourd
 
J'm'emmerde dans cette connerie d'banlieue
Remplis d'chômeurs de fonctionnaires
J'passe ma jeunesse à dev'nir vieux
J'passe tout mon temps á ne rien faire
 
J'aurais dût naître retraité
Et jouer aux boules toute la journée
Avec celles que j'ai dans l'gosier
Crois moi je vais bien m'amuser
 

He Wasn't Man Enough

Darkchild, oh yeah
Toni Braxton, oh
Ha-ha, uh-huh
Yeah, uh, uh
Darkchild yeah
 
Listen girl
Who do you think I am?
Don't you know that he was my man?
But I chose to let him go
So why do you act like
I still care about him?
Looking at me like I'm hurt
When I'm the one who said I didn't
want it to work
Don't you forget I had him first?
 
[1]
What you thinkin'?
He's not playing me
He wasn't man enough for me
If you don't know now here's chance
I've already had your man
Do you wonder just where he's been, yeah?
Do not be worried about him
Now it's time you know the truth
I think he's just the man for you
 
[2]
What are you thinking?
Do you know about us back then?
Do you know i dumped your husband,
girlfriend?
I'm not thinking 'bout him
But you married him
Do you know I made him leave?
Do you know he begged to stay with me?
He wasn't man enough for me
 
Listen girl
Didn't he tell you the truth?
If not then why don't you ask him?
Then maybe you can be more into him
Instead of worrying about me
And hopefully you won't find
All of the reasons why his love didn't
count And why we couldn't work it out
 
[Repeat 1]
[Repeat 2]
[Repeat 2]
 
Oh yeah So many reasons why our love is
through, yeah
What makes you think he'll be good to you, no
It makes no sense cause he will never change
Girl you better recognize the game, oh yeah
 
What are you thinking?
Do you know about us back then?
Do you know i dumped your husband,
girlfriend?
I'm not thinking 'bout him
But you married him
Do know I made him leave
Do you know he begged to stay with me
He wasn't man enough for me
 
[Repeat 2 to fade]
 

Delete

[Verse 1]
I think I gotta leave town
Drive on through the night
Called you from a stranger’s phone
Just trying to make it right
I wish I was somewhere else
Wish I knew what to say
I could give you so much, girl
But you gave it away
 
[Pre-Chorus]
You and me were like the stars
We were lighting up the dark
One minute you were in it, the next you were gone
I don’t really get it
Where did it go wrong?
Oh, we used to feel the same
Now we’re breaking like the waves in California
Everything we had just feels like a dream
Now you are just a photo on my iPhone screen
And I don’t wanna hit delete
 
[Chorus]
Woah, woah
I don't wanna hit delete
Woah, woah
 
[Verse 2]
Lying in a motel
Halfway to the coast
Running from the city lights
As far as I could go
I wish you were here with me
I wish you would call
Now I only see you in my feed
Never on my wall
 
[Pre-Chorus]
You and me were like the stars
We were lighting up the dark
One minute you were in it, the next you were gone
I don’t really get it
Where did it go wrong?
Oh, we used to feel the same
Now we’re breaking like the waves in California
Everything we had just feels like a dream
Now you are just a photo on my iPhone screen
And I don’t wanna hit delete
 
[Chorus]
Woah, woah
I don't wanna hit delete
Woah, woah
I don't wanna hit delete
Woah, woah
I don't wanna hit delete
Woah, woah
I don't wanna hit delete
Woah, woah
 
[Bridge]
You and me were like the stars
We were lighting up the dark
Everything we had just feels like a dream
Now you are just a photo on my iPhone screen
And I don’t wanna hit delete
 
[Chorus]
And I don't wanna hit delete
Woah, woah
I don't wanna hit delete
Woah, woah
 
[Outro]
You and me were like the stars
We were lighting up the dark
I don't wanna hit delete
 

You

I told you I was looking for some empathy
Well, you fooled me
Just a touch and a thought
And I was gone
 
And now
Someone's gonna get to know the better you
When I was supposed to
 
Oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Why did it have to be you?
 
I guess
Now, the next time there's an opportunity
I'll tread more carefully
My heart's running out of cellotape
 
You know
How is it I've never felt that way before?
Oh, I was so sure
 
Oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
It wasn't gonna be you
 
Ooh ooh ooh
 
Why do all the red flags just look like so much fun?
Oh, I have a habit of searching for the damage to
Share my love
 
I promised to be numb but
Somehow, you were the one
 
Now to unwind months
Of a good time
 
People will tell me that
I messed up
And it wasn't love
 
And I'm secretly hoping they are right
Because
 
Whatever it was
It was wonderful
But nonfunctional
 
Oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh
 
I really hope I don't love you
 

Feed My Frankenstein

(Yes, yes, I know you're hungry!
Ah, and here comes dinner!)
Feed my Frankenstein!
 
Well, I ain't evil
I'm just good lookin'
Start a little fire
And baby start cookin'
 
I'm a hungry man
But I don't want pizza
I'll blow down your house
And then I'm gonna eat ya
 
Bring you to a simmer
Right on time
Run my greasy fingers
Up your greasy spine
 
Feed my Frankenstein
Meet my libido
(He's a psycho!)
Feed my Frankenstein
Hungry for love, and it's feeding time
 
You don't want to talk
So baby shut up
And let me drink the wine
From your fur tea cup
Velcro candy, sticky sweet
Make my tattoos melt in the heat
 
Well, I ain't no veggie
Like my flesh on the bone
Alive and lickin' on
Your (hot) ice cream cone
 
Feed my Frankenstein
Meet my libido
(He's a psycho!)
Feed my Frankenstein
Hungry for love, and it's feeding time
 
Baby whoa-whoa oh yeah
Feed my Frankenstei-ei-ein
Whoa-whoa baby chow down
Feed my Frankenstei-ei-ein
 
[Bridge]
(He's a psycho!)
 
Feed my Frankenstein
Meet my libido
(He's a psycho!)
Feed my Frankenstein
Hungry for love, and it's lunch time
 
Baby whoa-whoa oh yeah
Feed my Frankenstei-ei-ein
Whoa-whoa baby chow down
Feed my Frankenstei-ei-ein
Feed my Frankenstein
Meet my libido
(He's such a psycho!)
 
Feed my Frankenstein
Hungry for love, and it's feeding time
Baby whoa-whoa oh yeah
Feed my Frankenstei-ei-ein
Whoa-whoa baby chow down
Feed my Frankenstei-ei-ein
 

The Streets of Laredo

As I walked out in the streets of Laredo
As I walked out in Laredo one day
I spied a young cowboy, wrapped all in white linen
Wrapped in white linen, as cold as the clay
 
Oh, beat the drum slowly and play the fife lowly
Sing the Death March as you carry me along
Take me to the valley, there lay the sod o'er me
I'm a young cowboy, I know I've done wrong
 
I see by your outfit that you are a cowboy
These words he did say as I boldly walked by
Come sit down beside me and hear my sad story
Got shot in the breast and I know I must die
 
Go fetch me some water, a cool cup of water
To cool my parched lips, then the poor cowboy said
Before I returned, his spirit had left him
Had gone to his Maker, the cowboy was dead
 
Oh, beat the drum slowly and play the fife lowly
Sing the Death March as you carry me along
Take me to the valley, there lay the sod o'er me
I'm a young cowboy and know I've done wrong
 

Devil Woman

I told Mary about us, told her about our great sin
Mary cried and forgave me and Mary took me back again
Said if I wanted my freedom, I could be free evermore
But I don't wanna be and I don't wanna see Mary cry anymore.
 
Oh, Devil Woman, Devil Woman, let go of me
Devil Woman, let me be
And leave me alone,
I wanna go home.
 
Mary is waitin' and weepin' down in our shack by the sea
Even after I hurt her, Mary' s still in love with me
Devil Woman, it's over, trapped no more by your charms
'Cause I don't wanna stay, I wanna get away,
woman let go of my arm.
 
Oh, Devil Woman, Devil Woman, let go of me
Devil woman, let me be
And leave me alone,
I wanna go home.
 
Devil woman, you're evil like the dark coral reef
Like the winds that bring high tides,
You bring sorrow and grief
You made me ashamed to face Mary,
Barely had the strength to tell
Skies are not so black, Mary took me back,
Mary has broken your spell.
 
Oh, Devil Woman, Devil Woman let go of me
Devil Woman, let me be
And leave me alone,
I wanna to go home.
 
Runnin' along with the seashore,
Runnin' as fast as I can.
Even the seagulls are happy
Glad I'm comin' home again.
 
Never again will I ever
Cause another tear to fall.
Down the beach I see
What belongs to me,
The one I want most of all.
 
Oh, Devil Woman,
Devil Woman, don't follow me.
Devil Woman let me be,
And leave me alone.
I'm goin' back home.
 

Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?

As I was walking down the street one day
a man came up to me and asked me
what the time was that was on my watch, yeah.
And I said.
 
Does anybody really know what time it is?
Does anybody really care?
If so I can't imagine why
we've all got time enough to cry.
 
And I was walking down the street one day.
A pretty lady looked at me
and said her diamond watch had stopped cold dead.
And I said.
 
Does anybody really know what time it is?
Does anybody really care?
If so I can't imagine why
we've all got time enough to cry.
 
And I was walking down the street one day,
being pushed and shoved
by people trying to beat the clock,
oh, no I just don't know, I don't know.
And I said, yes I said.
 
And I was walking down the street one day
(people runnin' everywhere)
being pushed and shoved by people
(don't know where to go)
trying to beat the clock, oh, no I just don't know
(don't know where I am)
I don't know, I dont know, oh
(don't have time to think past the last mile)
(have no time to look around)
And I said, yes I said
(run around and think why)
 
Does anybody really know what time it is? (I don't care)
Does anybody really care? (care about time)
If so I can't imagine why (no, no)
we've all got time enough to die.
 
Everybody's working (I don't care)
I don't care (about time)
about time. (no, no)
I don't care.
 

Twelve

You might find it hard to remember when you look at me now
But once long time ago I swear I was twelve
I didn't have respect for people, not for anyone
I used to have fun all alone, have fun all by myself
 
But you had a gentle face with lips so full, quick like a preacher
So you would hang out at the gym all day to look like wrestlers
Still you kept this look so understanding like a preschool teacher
You statue of a man with all those muscles and the chest hair
 
Hey, hey
Won't you stay
In one of my castles
We could have it all
Hey, hey
We could have it all
 
Hey hey
Won't you stay
In one of my castles
We could have it all
Hey, Hey
 
And then in school I used to always fall in love with singers
Like little fool I was they never taught me how to sing
Boys with pianos didn't want to hurt their pretty fingers
And I swore to stay twelve till I see you again my king
 
With every sin the net of skin becomes a little weaker
My next of kin is having kids, they start to grow first
And everyday I eat and then become a little sicker
Cancer that kills so slow you forget it exists
 
Hey, hey
Won't you stay
In one of my castles
We could have it all
Hey, hey
We could have it all
 
Hey hey
Won't you stay
In one of my castles
We could have it all
Hey, Hey
 
Sometimes I think it's better to just go before my time
So I could at least feel like I'm having life in my own hands
But moods take turns in torturing me with their arrival
And my own head plays tricks on me forgetting what I meant
 
I am forgetting who I was when I was with you darling
I am forgetting and my face turns into pile of blue
You can't go before you know what love is, you said to be charming
Not before you know love, oh God I was angry with you
 
You say
Hey, hey
Stay
 
Hey, hey
Won't you stay
In one of my castles
We could have it all
Hey, hey
 

Shadows

You were gone and we said goodbye
And I thought the tears would dry
There will be another love for me
 
But I see the morning light now
Come to chase away the night now
You’re my never-ending memory
 
Constantly, I always find you
In the shadows left behind you
Shadows on my mind and I know
I can never let my lover go
 
Many loves I’ve had before
I thought this was just one more
Now I know I’ll never love again
 
Not until you’re here beside me
With your loving hand to guide me
Darling, won’t you please come back again?
 
Constantly, I always find you
In the shadow left behind you
Shadows on my mind and I know
I can never let my lover go
 
Constantly, I always find you
In the shadow left behind you
Shadows on my mind and I know
I can never let my lover go
