(There'll Never B) Another Like Me

It really don't matter who you get with
Cuz it just ain't meant to be

It really don't matter
Cuz you never shoulda woulda,
Ever coulda been like me

I can get you what you want anything
At all girl all you gotta say is please
Ask your mother your sister your brotha
There'll never be another
Never be another like me

Late afternoon slipped outta my bed
Turned up the stereo
About to raise the dead

Slipped in the bathroom
Put some olive oil in my hair
Walked in the closet
Tryin' to find something to wear

Then I check my email
To see where the party be
Change the names to protect the guilty
And get ready to creep
Should I bring somebody
Or dance alone?
It don't matter to me y'all
Cuz tonight is on

[Chorus]

Bout a half past ten and I'm on my way
Heard you had a fine little Puerto Rican DJ
If she ain't got Prince's new song
There is gonna be a scene
Cuz I can't stand nobody cussin'
At me when I'm clean

Arms all around me
Soon as I hit the door
Good thing I ate my spinach
You're thicker than before
Oh what's this boy doing
Why he makin' that face
Don't he know eye have crazy friends with me
Ready to tear up this place?

[Chorus]

Can't you see this is inevitable
What's the use in wastin' time?
You and me we could be comfortable
All that takes is for you to make up your mind
So now what's the matter?
You and me, we both dimes
Said we were
All them other pennies should scatter
We ought not waste this time
That's why...

[Chorus]

Chocolate Box

So, what's the deal, why you frontin' keep it real
Do you wanna get funky with me?
If you think I got something that you want,
Sugar nothin' here comes for free

I been around this way
Got lost and found
Lemme see if you remember my name
You can try to get it but I can't let you hit it
Cuz you never gon' be the same

I got a box a chocolates
That'll rock the socks of any
Girl that wanna come my way
And I ain't got no time to waste
If she ain't makin' bank and scared of
What a brutha got to say

She want the b-o-x-a-chocolate everyday

So what's the deal are you sportin' some wheels
Or are you ridin' in a limousine?
This ain't prom night and I don't wanna
Fight so you betta get your dirty clean
I hear your words goin' up and down your
Skirt your gonna get a chance to prove it
You best believe if you wanna get wit me
It takes a real woman to do it

[Chorus (q-tip)]

So what's the deal are you gay or poppin' pills?
Why you still wanna take my hand?
This discotec is 'bout to make me a wreck
My feet are singin' louder than the band
I see you got the feelin'
Flashin' lights up on the ceiling
Say you gotta get your weekend now
What difference does it make?
You know you can't make chocolate cake
If ain't nobody ever showed you how

[Chorus x2]
She want the b-o-x-a-chocolate everyday

Dance 4 Me

[Chorus]
I like it when you dance cuz it gets me hot
I like it when you shake everything you got
I like it when you dance cuz it's so sexy
I like it when you dance for me

I like it when you think I'm all alone
Your the voice I hear from the telephone
Tellin' me all your deepest fantasies
I like it when you dance for me... hallelujah

I like it when I hear a knock
On my door
You're standing there in your Christian Dior
Dark sunglasses in the pale moonlight
I like it when the scene is right
You can take your wrap and lay it on the chair
If anybody finds it I don't care
What we do together makes history
I like it when you dance for me
Hallelujah

Your flamenco eyes are full like jazz
With every other sip of what's in your glass
The sexier you get
The more you're into my stash
I like it when you dance for me
Hallelujah

(dance... dance for me... dance... dance for me)

[Chorus x2]

Dance... dance... I like it when you dance for me

U're Gonna C Me

I know... I'm not gonna sleep tonight
Cuz you're not by my side and that ain't right
I thought that we bought this bed for two
What good is it if I'm not with you

[Chorus]
Gimme a page on my 2-way
I'll hit you back with no delay
When you hear all I've got 2 say
You're gonna see me
Whether in person or the phone
I've got to get you all alone
And when I do, baby, it's on
You're gonna see me
You're gonna see me

There's never a minute that I find
That you don't ever cross my mind
If you could just hold me tight you'd see
There is nothing harder for you than me

[Chorus]

You're the reason I took a rope
And lassoed the moon
To prove that when it comes to you
There's nothing that I won't do
I would stare into the sun
If you would be mine
It's not so great a leap
Since to all others I am blind

I know I'm not gonna sleep tonight
Cuz ur not by my side and that ain't right

[Chorus]

You're gonna see me

Here

How beautiful are you? There's more than
A thousand replies
Could it be your lips or your golden eyes?
When I think of an answer
That's when I get so surprised
Another wonder of the world realized
That's why

I just don't want you here
I just don't want you near me baby

Cuz I'm scared I'll cry
And live you like crazy
Flying above all fears
I haven't seen any tears, not lately
I don't wanna land not even maybe

How desperate am I?
I wonder if you are what keeps me alive
Alone I can't get as high
Even though I've tried

It's different when you're grown
The wine don't taste the same
When you're alone
The size of the bed now seems like
The biggest that I've ever known

[Chorus]

There's so much more for you and me to explore
Ooh baby baby
When you walk through that door
I am gonna give you what you're waiting for

Baby lemme break this down

I am gonna say this once
Then I am gonna leave this town
If you can learn to open your eyes under water
Then you and me won't drown
Without each other
You promise I'll see you on the other side
Just believe in me and trust this ride
I am so sincere right now
I just...

I just want you here
I just want you near me baby
I'm scared I'll cry
And love you like crazy
I'm flying above all fears
I haven't seen any tears not lately, no
I don't wanna land, not even maybe
Donny Hathaway's "Song For You" ain't the same
Without you
Here

Valentina

Hey Valentina tell your mama
She should give me a call
When she get tired of runnin'
After you down the hall
Before you came onto the scene it was a Hollywood mess
Your mama was a movie queen
She was one of the best

Every boy had the hots for her,
Around the world even girls adored her
Mexican bombshell
Come to conquer the west

Hey Valentina tell your mama
She should give me a call
When she get tired of runnin'
After you down the hall
And she's all worn out
From those late night feedings
And she ready for another
Rock 'n roll meeting
Oh Valentina tell your mama
She should give me a call

Your Uncle Sam used to hold it down
Every day

Watch the bootyguards
Scarecrow the buzzards away
Like an aeroplane the time flies over
So many guys they couldn't get
Your sweet little mama to stay

Curvier than
A Fender Stratocaster guitar...
Reality bender... from no green card
To superstar

Broken up slang even when
The king of hollywood ain't that tall
Sho' as betty's ugly
Your mama's bigger than 'em all
Hey Valentina

Tell your mama she should call up mia
In advance

If Penelope wants to Cruz
There ain't no way that we ain't gon' dance
Tell your mama should should give me a call
That's all

Better with Time

This might seem strange
Since so much time has passed
And since only one of us
Still looks the same
Your words not mine, baby
Your still fine yes you are
Like wine, you get better with time
So young and so naive
That I never once believed
That the memory of you would go through
Like wind goes through the trees

Maybe if you believe baby
That I would no deceive you
You and I side by side or somewhere
In between

I don't know if this is a bore
But I just can no longer ignore
This fact so sublime
You get better with time

Anyone who's met you agrees
That no one forgets you most of all not me
You can claim You're humble and hide
But when it's true my dear
It's not pride

A jury of my peers would find me
Guilty of so many crimes
If I chose not to remind you
That you get better with time

This might seem absurd
To someone so cultured
And to one who would grace any stage

When the hair that frames that face
Dark brown or silvery lace
What is age but a cage? Never mind
You'll be blind to not know that you get better with time

Ol' Skool Company

[Chorus]
Every once in awhile
You need some old school company
Somebody that appreciates a sexy groove
And a old school melody
When God his son and the love of family
Ruled in the community
The songs you sing
Lift you up too heaven
A heaven we can believe in

Everybody's talkin' about hard times
Like it just started yesterday
People eye know they've been strugglin'
At least it seems that way
Fat cats on wall street
They got a bailout
While somebody else got too wait
700 billion but my old neighborhood
Ain't nothing changed but the date

[Chorus]

Ain't nothing ever come from complaining
Except a bitter heart, that's true
Follow along and you gon' wanna do
Something before the next chorus is thru
The songs we sing
They used too mean somethin'
Now every other one is just mean
Rather than reminisce I'm telling you this
It's time for a brand new scene

[Chorus]

Everybody's sinkin' in the quicksand
Created by the keeper of time
Cast aside by using ancient tricks
That changes your state of mind
They got you catering the whims of the flesh
Before you get your paper right
Call me old fashioned
But back in the day
There wasn't no shorties in sight

First come job then come marriage before shorty
Come out with the baby carriage call me
Old fashioned just clap yo hands just clap yo hands
Radio used too be local untouched by the man
Songs we used too sing used too mean something
Now they just bland like the drummer
Where's the real drummer? Michael B.
Mint condition, Morris Day
Jellybean wishin' Sheila E and brother John, sometimes me
'til dawn

If the white house is black
We gotta take the radio back
Power to the people
Power to the people

Put this thing on repeat go back to one
And just move your feet tell your friends Prince and
The mplsound we can't be beat

Suckas

No More Candy 4 U

9 out of 10 mortals agree today; too much fame causes spiritual decay

To all the punks who believe life imitates music
No more candy for you we can't hang with you
To all the punks who wanna b rock stars and do what they do
There's no future for you that's the life of a fool
No more candy, no more candy for you we're too funky and you can't handle our groove

To all the freaks in the magazines who never paid no dues
No more candy for you, you can't sing it's true
To all the freaks walking into walls somebody put a spell on you
No more candy for you, I guess the devil got a brand new fool

[Chorus]

To all the haters on the internet somebody's lookin' at you
No more candy for you they got your number now, fool
To all the suckers winning anything and thanking the lord for what
They do
No more candy for you, no more candy for you

I am too funky and you can't handle my groove
