A very pleasant good evening ladies and gentlemen
It is now time...
The one and only...
There never will be another...
Christina Aguilera
That's how music should sound

Ohh yeah
I've waited for some time
To get inside the minds
Of every legend I've ever wanted to stand beside
It's like an endless ride
Feeling the lows and highs
Of every lyric and melody
Every single rhyme
So here I stand today
In tribute I do pay
To those before me who laid it down and paved the way
And so to God I pray that he will give me strength
To carry forward the gift of song in his good faith
In his good faith...

I'm going back to basics
To where it all began
I'm ready now to face it
I wanna understand
What made the soul singers
And the blues figures
That inspired a higher generation
The jazz makers, and the ground breakers
They gave so much of themselves and dedication

So here I stand today
In tribute I do pay
To those before me who laid it down and paved the way

Ohhh yeah
hey... ha

. . .


(feat. Steve Winwood)

He-hey he-hey ohh
Oh yeah
Well alright
He-hey

What is this feeling coming over me?
I'm taken back in disbelief
Is this really me, ha! in the mirror I see?
Staring back at me:
Could it be? A new reflection of a woman complete

All of a sudden I'm so care-free (well alright)
'cause love is doing something strange to me (well alright)
Got a new flame, ha! haven't been the same
Something in me's changed, rearranged
And I feel that I've been saved

You got me feeling like you're that something I've been missing
Everything's heaven 'cause life with you has been a blessing

(Oh-oh oh-oh)
I got it bad in a serious way, oh yeah
(Oh-oh oh-oh)
Your love has brought me to a higher place, oh yeah
(Who knew? Who knew?)
It'd be you to restore my faith
Everyday, I'm amazed
And it makes me wanna get down and pray
Makes me wanna get down and pray
Said it makes me wanna get down and pray
Yeah-hey

I've kept some company I shouldn't have (well alright)
Made some mistakes but that's in the past (well alright)
I'm professing here to you
Proof that I am through

I'm coming clean
Now I can breathe
and I finally believe, yeah

You got me thinking I'll be alright, and you're the reason
Ooh I can feel it, we're moving in a new direction

(Oh-oh oh-oh)
I got it bad in a serious way, oh yeah
(Oh-oh oh-oh)
Your love has brought me into a higher place, oh yeah
(Who knew? Who knew?)
It'd be you to restore my faith
Everyday, I'm amazed
And it makes me wanna get down and pray
Makes me wanna get down and pray
Said it makes me wanna get down and pray
Makes me wanna get down and pray
Makes me wanna get down and pray

Ohh
Where would I be? Where would I be?
Without you by my side
Where would I be? Where would I be?
Without you standing by

Makes me wanna (pray)
Makes me need to (pray)
When I'm feeling low and all alone,
You're the light in my day, yeah

(Oh-oh oh-oh)
I got it bad in a serious way, oh yeah
(Oh-oh oh-oh)
Your love has brought me into a higher place, oh yeah
(Who knew? Who knew?)
It'd be you to restore my faith
Everyday, I'm amazed
'cause it makes me wanna get down and pray
'cause it makes me wanna get down and pray
Makes me wanna get down and pray

Woo, thank you father!

Wanna lift my hands up and pray
'cause everytime I'm hearing your name
Wanna reach out and rejoice
Sound of your voice, yeah

Hey yeah
Alright
That's it

. . .

Back in the day, they used to say
Play that song, get it going, and the band played
And still today, you hear us say
Play that song all night long, Mr. DJ
Though times have changed,
It's still the same
We all need a minute to get away
So let it go and feel the flow
If you've got soul, let the world know

We're gonna set the mood (set the mood off right)
Gonna go back to an old school groove (go back to an old school groove)
Gonna rewind to another time
When the originators, innovators were alive, yeah

Here we say now
So break out the Marvin Gaye and Etta James
Your Lady Day, and Coltrane
Turn up your 45's, bring back to life
The sound and vibe of yesterday
Open your mind, enjoy the ride,
Live out tonight and grab that Soul Train

Take it back, take it
Back in the day, back in the day
Oh baby
Back in the day, back in the day
Won't you take me back?
Back in the day, back in the day
I'll do it
Back in the day, back in the day

Ohh yeah

Y'all remember back in the day, you dig
Ray Charles, Nat King Cole, Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald

Yeah
Now "Chain Of Fools" and "Respect"
Was the anthem of a woman, Aretha said
"What's Going On", "Let's Get It On"
Such classic songs, don't forget them
Though times have changed
They still remain my inspiration everyday
So give it up for the ones
Who came before, opened up that door

We're gonna set the mood
(we're gonna) (set the mood)
Gonna go back to an old school groove
(go back) (to an old school groove)
Gonna rewind to another time
(rewind) (another time)
When the originators, innovators were alive

So break out the Marvin Gaye and Etta James
Your Lady Day, and Coltrane
Turn up your 45's, bring back to life
The sound and vibe of yesterday

Get yourself on the floor
Don't back away (don't back away)
Come celebrate (gonna celebrate, yeah)

So break out the Marvin Gaye and Etta James
Your Lady Day, and Coltrane

(Do your thang honey)

I could feel it from the start
Couldn't stand to be apart
Something 'bout ya caught my eye
Something moved me deep inside, now
I don't know what ya did boy, but you had it
And I've been hooked ever since
Told my mother, my brother, my sister, and my friends
Told the others, my lovers, both past and present tense
That every time I see you everything starts making sense

(Do your thang honey)

Ain't no other man can stand up next to you
Ain't no other man on the planet does what you do
You're the kinda guy a girl finds in a blue moon
You got soul, you got class, you got style, you're bad ass
Ain't no other man, it's true
Ain't no other man but you

Never thought I'd be alright
(no, no no)
'Till you came and changed my life
(yeah, yeah, yeah)
What was cloudy now is clear, yeah yeah
You're the light that I needed
You got what I want boy, and I want it
So keep on giving it up
So tell your mother, your brother, your sister, and your friends
Tell the others, your lovers, better not be present tense (mhm)
'Cause I want everyone to know that you are mine and no one else's
Whoa, oh, oh

Ain't no other man can stand up next to you
Ain't no other man on the planet does what you do
You're the kinda guy a girl finds in a blue moon
You got soul, you got class, you got style, you're bad ass
Ain't no other man, it's true
Ain't no other man but you

(Break it down now!)

Ain't no other, ain't, ain't no other, other
Ain't no other, ain't, ain't no other lover
Ain't no other, I, I, I need no other
Ain't no other man but you, oh

You are there when I'm a mess, and
Talk me down from every ledge, and
Give me strength,
Boy, you're the best, and
You're the only one who's ever
Passed every test!

Ain't no other man can stand up next to you
Ain't no other man on the planet does what you do
You're the kinda guy a girl finds in a blue moon
(you're the kinda guy a girl won't find)
You got soul, you got class, you got style, you're bad ass
Ain't no other man, it's true
Ain't no other man but you
(x2)

And now I'm telling you
Said, ain't no other man but you
Oh, yeah, yeah
What you do, oh said
Baby baby baby, no
Yeah, ooh
Don't you know, ooh ooh
Ain't no other man but you

. . .



I made you think, you don't understand.

I used to think that happiness could only be something
That happened to somebody else
Everybody believed, everybody but me, yeah yeah
And I've been hurt so many times before,
That my hopes was dying, so sick of trying
Everybody could see, everybody but me, yeah yeah
But then you came into my life, you opened up my softer side
And now I can see into your eyes
And suddenly, I realize.

I made you think, you don't understand
All the times you didn't understand,
Why you couldn't just be my man.
I made you think, you don't understand
There were many walls you had to climb,
If you really wanted to be mine.
I made you think, you don't understand
After all the hoops I put you through,
Now I see that I'm in love with you

Now, I hope you finally understand.

So many tears I've had to cry,
But you had many more of your own you had to try
But you stuck it out and you're here with me now, yeah yeah
And rememberin' the days I pushed away your love,
You called my bluff and you still stayed around,
Yeah you figured me out
Said, you got me down
And there's no way to lie to you, you know me better than I do

Baby, ooh, you see me through,
I'd be no good without you.

I made you think, you don't understand
All the times you didn't understand,
Why you just couldn't be my man
I made you think, you don't understand
There were many walls you had to climb (yeah)
If you really wanted to be mine (ooh)
I made you think, you don't understand
After all the hoops I put you through (through)
Now I see that I'm in love with you

Now, I hope you finally understand

Ohh.

Baby, won't you listen now
Can't you see just what I'm talking about?
Said baby won't you listen now
Can't you see just what I'm talking about?

Time went on, and I was wrong
To keep my distance for so long.
So afraid, you wouldn't stay
But you never turned away

Always right by my side
You're forever in my life
Don't you go
'Cause now I know
That in you I found a home.

Now I can see into your eyes
Suddenly, I realize.

I made you think, you don't understand
All the times you didn't understand
Why you just couldn't be my man
I made you think, you don't understand
There were many walls you had to climb,
If you really wanted to be mine
I made you think, you don't understand
After all the hoops I put you through
Now I see I'm in love with you.

Now, I hope you finally understand.

I made you think, you don't understand.

Every time I pass you by

You're the kind that gets your way
Every minute, every single day

How's it feel to finally get a taste?
You can dish it out but can you take the bed you've made?
Boy it ain't gonna change

I'm not falling for your stupid lines
I know you've dished 'em 'bout a thousand times
Say nothing but a nursery rhyme
But I won’t buy it
Baby don't you even try

You coming 'round here like
Like you think that everything's about you
Think you can do anything
You realize I’m wearing a ring?

Slow down baby (slow down)
And don't act crazy (crazy, hey)
Don’t you know, you can look all you want
But you just can’t touch (you just can’t touch, no)
So slow down baby (slow down),

'Cause I’m with someone (with someone)

Do you really wanna waste your time?
Don't you have better things to do in life? (hey, woah)
Listen, I don't wanna get you down
But I ain't never gonna mess around
So, how many ways do I have to say...

Slow down baby (slow it down, yeah yeah)
And don't act crazy
Don't you know, you can look all you want
But you just can't touch (you know that you can't touch, no)
So slow down baby (slow down baby)

Boy you'll never gonna get it from me
'Cause I'm with someone (ooh whoa)
(Ooh, you better stop, slow down baby)

Slow down baby (slow down baby),
And don’t act crazy (and don't act crazy)

But you just can’t touch (you just can't touch, no)

Yeah yeah, ooh, whoa
Hey, ooh, whoa
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Ooh
(Stop, slow down baby)

Whoa, oh, yeah,

She was so young with such innocent eyes
She always dreamt of a fairytale life
And all the things your money can't buy
She thought daddy was a wonderful guy
Then suddenly, things seemed to change
It was the moment she took on his name
He took his anger out on her face
She kept all of her pain locked away

Oh mother, we're stronger
From all of the tears you have shed
Oh mother, don't look back
Cause he'll never hurt us again

So mother, I thank you
For all you've done and still do
You got me, I got you
Together we always pull through
We always pull through
We always pull through
Oh mother, oh mother, oh mother

It was the day that he turned on his kids
That she knew she just had to leave him
So many voices inside of her head
Saying over and over and over,
"You deserve much more than this."

She was so sick of believing the lies and trying to hide
Covering the cuts and bruises (cuts and bruises)
So tired of defending her life, she could have died
Fighting for the lives of her children

Oh mother, we're stronger
From all of the tears you have shed (all of the tears you have shed)
Oh mother, don't look back
Cause he'll never hurt us again (he'll never hurt us again)

So mother, I thank you (thank you)
For all that you've done and still do (still do)
You got me, I got you, (yeah you got me and I got you)
Together we always pull through.
We always pull through
We always pull through
Oh mother, oh mother, oh mother

All of your life you have spent
Burying hurt and regret
But mama, he'll never touch us again

For everytime he tried to break you down
Just remember who's still around
It's over, and we're stronger
And we'll never have to go back again

Oh mother, we're stronger
From all of the tears you have shed
Oh mother, don't look back (oh mother don't look back again)
Cause he'll never hurt us again (cause he'll never hurt us again)

So mother, I thank you (and I thank you for everything you've done)
For all that you've done and still do (together we always move on)
You got me, I got you, (you got me, I got you)
Together we always pull through (always pull through)
We always pull through
We always pull through

I love you mom

. . .



You know who you are
This is for you

Hmmm, yeah, ooh yeah, ohh

I thought I knew who you were
I see now you were a lesson to learn
And all I am to you now is a bridge that's been burned
Now I was the first to believe
I made you part of my musical dream
And your thanks to me, came without an apology, yeah

We wrote Loving Me 4 Me, don't Walk Away
Can't Hold Us Down, all part of our history
Don't forget Infatuation, I'm a Fighter
Feeling Underappreciated

Yeah, this song is for you to remind you
That I moved on, sang my songs,
I've got no regrets

Mmhmm, ohh

Hope it all was worth it, uh
Looks like I didn't need you
Still got the album out
Ha

. . .



Me and you, we're different
Don't always see eye to eye
You go left, and I go right
And sometimes when we even fight
That don't mean that I won't need a friend, oh
You and me, we're in this 'til the end, oh

I think we're on our our way
Through all the lows and highs
I need you by my side, singing
I think we're on our way
To better days, better days, oh
Let's say we turn the page
Move on from all the times
Should've laughed, not cried, feeling
What is there more to say? (say)
I think that we're on our way

Together, we'll weather
Many storms as family
That bond is forever
It can take almost anything
The love I feel for you grows everyday, yeah
The more we get to learn from our mistakes, yeah yeah

I think we're on our our way
Through all the lows and highs
I need you by my side, singing
I think we're on our way
To better days, better days, oh
Let's say we turn the page
Move on from all the times
Should've laughed, not cried, feeling (ooh)
What is there more to say? (say, yeah yeah)
I think that we are on our way

Someday, soon, I'll need advice
Hope you're there to shed some light
And maybe one day, you'll be wanting mine
And we can (we can) be there be for each other

I think we're on our way
I think we're on our way (ha)
I think we're on our way
Let's say we turn the page
Move on from all the times
Should've laughed, not cried
What is there more to say? (ooh)
I think that we're on our way
I think we're on our way
Through all the highs and lows
I need you by my side, yeah

I think we're on our way
To better days, better days, yeah
Let's say we turn the page
Move on from all the times
Should've laughed, not cried
What is there more to say? (no more to say)
I think that we are on our way

Yeah.
Ohh.

No more to say.
No more to say. Yeah.

No more to say. Ha.

. . .



Woah woahh

Have I been blind?
For the first time in my life I feel I've opened up my eyes
Since you've arrived like an angel from the sky
I'm on a spiritual high

So don't you ever go away
I could never face
Losing you would give my faith
In a higher place

What kind of world
Would it be without you
I couldn't breathe without you here
What kind of world
Would I see without you
I can't dream without you here

Yeah woah yeah

Beautiful boy
How on earth did I do something worth deserving you?
My better half
How I cherish through and through every part of you
I do

Loving you's made me hope
Now I belong
I found my heart
Promise me we'll always stay
The way we are today

What kind of world
Would it be without you
I couldn't breathe without you here
What kind of world
Would I see without you
I can't dream without you here

Hey-yeah

I can't ever imagine
If this never would happened
I thank God everyday
Almost lost you forever
But I always remember (remember)
That you're my saving grace

What kind of world
(what kind of world)
Would it be without you
(oh without you)
I couldn't breathe without you here
(ohh here)
What kind of world
(what kind of world)
Would I see without you
(oh see without you)
I can't dream without you here
(dream without you here)

. . .



Yeah. Yeah.
Ooh, Ooh, Ohh

If you see me walking down the street
Or in the pages of your magazine
Looking just a little differently
Showing off a softer side of me

They saying I'm looking like a lady
They saying that love is going to change me
But don't be fooled by everything you see
Gotta let the naughty in me free

There's a woman inside of all of us
Who never quite seems to get enough
Trying to play by the rules is rough
Cause sooner or later something's going to erupt

Cause I still got that nasty in me
Still got that dirrty degree (still got it)
And if you want some more sexy
Still got that freak in me
I still got that nasty in me
Still got that dirrty degree (oh yeah)
And if you want some more sexy
Still got that freak in me

No matter what you thinking of me, still dirrty
And if you're still rolling with me, still got it
No matter what you thinking of me, still dirrty
Still got that freak in me

Why is a woman's sexuality
Always under so much scrutiny?
Why can't she do exactly as she please
Without being called a million things?

They say I'm not the girl they used to know (used to know)
'Cause I don't always wear revealing clothes (oh)
But don't be fooled a moment, I can't hold (I can't hold)
I'm letting loose, 'cause then I'd probably choke (don't you know)

There's some women out there who talk and stare
Who never seem to let down their hair
Like to past judgement, but they're just scared
And don't know what they're missing, so they better beware

'Cause I still got that nasty in me
Still got that dirrty degree (ooh)
And if you want some more sexy
Still got that freak in me
I still got that nasty in me
Still got that dirrty degree (oh yeah)
And if you want some more sexy
Still got that freak in me (oh yeah)

No matter what you thinking of me, still dirrty
And if you're still rolling with me, still got it
No matter what you thinking of me, still dirrty
Still got that freak in me

Don't tell me to behave
'Cause I'll never play that game (no)
Don't tell me what to do
'Cause I'll never be uptight like you
Don't look at me that way
'Cause I ain't never gonna change
And if you're talking about my life
You're only wasting your own time

If I want to wear lingere outside of my clothes
If I want to be erotic in my own videos
If I want to be provacative, well that ain't a sin
Maybe you're not comfortable in your own skin

I still got that nasty in me
Still got that dirrty degree (in me)
And if you still want some more sexy
Still got that freak in me
I still got that nasty in me
Still got that dirrty degree (in me)
And if you still want some more sexy
Still got freak in me

Ooh, yeah.
Hey, hey, hey.
Ohh. Ohh. Ohh. Ohh.

. . .


Well everybody got an optinion, don't they
But it ain't no thing to me
It really don't make any difference now to me
If you don't like what you see
I pay no mind to thenegative kind
Cause that's just no way to be
I don't stop to please someone else's needs
Gonna live my life for me

I'm gonna keep on
Imma do my own thing
We all got a song that we're meant to sing
And no metter what people say or might think
I ain't goin' no place, no
I'm here to stay
Gonna keep on doing my thing
Cause whether they love or they hatin' on me
I'll still be the same girl I used to be
Cause I ain't goin' no place, no
I'm here to stay

I've never been a type to be shy
I know that some would say I'm too headstrong
But I'd rather be woman who voices her mind
Whether you think I'm right or wrong
And I know some people wanna criticize
Make 'em feel better about themselves
So say you will', time will reveal
In the end that I will be here still

I'm gonna keep on
Imma do my own thing
We all got a song that we're meant to sing
And no metter what people say or might think
I ain't goin' no place, no
I'm here to stay
Gonna keep on doing my thing
Cause whether they love or they hatin' on me
I'll still be the same girl I used to be
Cause I ain't goin' no place, no
I'm here to stay

Gotta get up, keep my head up
Gonna keep on turnin' it up
Never let up
If I keep steppin' it up
Imma prove that I ain't ever gonna be stopped
Like it or not
Gotta get up, keep my head up
Gonna keep on turnin' it up
Never let up
If I keep steppin' it up
Imma prove that I ain't ever gonna be stopped
Like it or not

No metter the pressures that face me
I believe, I believe they will see
I'll never let anyone break me
All your doubtcan do now is strengthen me
And life it ain't always that easy
Gotta fight to see past the boundaries
Crossin' the lines
I will define everytime
That forever is mine

I'm gonna keep on
Imma do my own thing
We all got a song that we're meant to sing
And no metter what people say or might think
I ain't goin' no place, no
I'm here to stay
Gonna keep on doing my thing
Cause whether they love or they hatin' on me
I'll still be the same girl I used to be
Cause I ain't goin' no place, no
I'm here to stay

. . .



It seems like a lifetime
Since I felt like a prisoner of my dreams, yeah
It took such a long time
For me to realize just how to be
And to listen to me

Don't go thinking I'm not thankful,
'Cause me, I've got my hands full of good things, oh
And I hope I can give back
A little bit of what you've given me

So thank you for standing right by me [I will always love you]
So thank you for being behind me [You are just so amazing]
And watching me grow and letting others know
That you still believe in what I'll be

Ha.

So people have said things in times
About me that weren't always true
Ooh yeah
But you've always been there
To give that extra love to pull me through
To do what I gotta do

Cause there'll always be those ups and downs
But you've always seemed to stick around and see
See me through to believe, yeah

And I hope I can give back
A little bit of what you've given me
You give me all that I need, yeah

So thank you for standing right by me [I thank you for everything]
So thank you for being behind me [Thank you, Christina]
And watching me grow and letting others know
That you still believe in what I'll be [Sing it, girl]

It took awhile 'til I could do what I wanted
And now I'm so happy that it started where we started
I'm thanking God that I could be in the position
To do my own thing now and make my own decisions

And so I'm thanking you for being true
And standing by me through and through

. . .



Ladies and gentlemen
Boys and girls
Step right up, step right up
Come closer, you won't believe your eyes
Behind this curtain,
Witness something you've never seen before,
Heard before, dreamt before
The most amazing show on earth

La la la la la la la
It's the most amazing show on earth
La la la la la la la

Do you want to be widely entertained?
People to know your name?
Do you crave fame?
Well they say "things aren't always what they seem to be"
Even your greatest fantasies
You won't believe your eyes
Won't even recognise
The wonderment that lies
Behind the shimmer and the lights

Is it true what they say?
Is it all just fun and games?
Or is there more behind the makeup,
And the faces full of paint?

I ask you, do you want to come and play?
Hahahaha
Get the world to come and play
Hahahaha

So sit back, relax, fasten your seatbelts
It's going to be a bumpy ride to the other side

. . .



Woah, ohh

Welcome to the greatest show
Greatest show on earth
You've never seen before
Here the fairytale unfolds

What's behind the smoke and glass?
Painted faces, everybody wears a mask
Are you selling them your soul?
Well you'll be left out in the cold

Is it all blue skies
Fun and games untill you fall
Then you're left without anyone at all
You're riding on a shooting star
With a smile upon your face
But soon the shine fades

And you're left out all alone
Wondering where did they all go?
Oooh

Been jaded, hated,
Who'll be around when the limelight's faded?
Been shut down, pushed out
Made to smile when I wanted to frown

Always taking a bow
Always working the crowd
Always breaking new ground
Always playing the clown
Who'll be sticking it out?
Who'll be staying around
When the lights go down?

(whistles to fade)

(Tarzan and Jane were swingin' on a vine)
Candy man, candy man

(Sippin' from a bottle of vodka double wine)
Sweet, sugar, candy man

Hey
I met him out for dinner on a Friday night
He really got me working up an appetite
He had tattoos up and down his arm
There's nothing more dangerous than a boy with charm
He's a one stop jive, makes my panties drop
He's a sweet talkin' sugar coated candy man
A sweet talkin' sugar coated candy man

Ooh, yeah, yeah
He took me to this cotton club on Hollywood & Vine
We drank champagne and we danced all night
We shook the paparazzi for a big surprise (a big surprise)
?
He's a one stop jive, makes my cherry pop
He's a sweet talkin' sugar coated candy man (ooh yeah)
A sweet talkin sugar coated candy man

(Scatting)

Hey, yeah
Oh, yeah

He's a one stop jive, makes my cherry pop
He's a sweet talkin' sugar coated candy man (oh)
A sweet talkin sugar coated candy man

Whoa, yeah
Well, by now I'm getting all bothered and hot
When he hits my mouth he really hits the spot
He got lips like sugar cane, oh
Good things come for those who wait

(Tarzan and Jane were swingin' on a vine)
Candy man, candy man
(Sippin' from a bottle of vodka double wine)
Candy man, candy man

(Sweet, sugar, candy man)
He's a one stop, gotcha hot, makin all the panties drop
(Sweet, sugar, candy man)
He's a one stop, got me hot, makin' my *uh* pop
(Sweet, sugar, candy man)
He's a one stop, get it while it's hot, baby don't stop
(Sweet, sugar)

He got those lips like sugar cane
Good things come for ones who wait
He's a one stop jive with a real big *uh*
He's a sweet talkin' sugar coated candy man
(Say what) a sweet talkin sugar coated candy man
(Say) a sweet talkin sugar coated candy man, woo
A sweet talkin sugar coated candy man

Oooh, whoa
Candy man, candy man
Candy man, candy man
Candy man, candy man...

(Tarzan and Jane were swingin' on a vine
Tarzan and Jane were swingin' on a vine
Sippin' from a bottle of vodka double wine
Sippin' from a bottle of vodka double wine
Jane lost her grip and down she fell
Jane lost her grip and down she fell
Squared herself away as she let out a yell
Squared herself away as she let out a yell)

. . .



Come here big boy
Ahh, mmmhmm, yeah

You've been a bad bad boy
I'm gonna take my time, so enjoy
There's no need to feel no shame
Relax and sip upon my champagne
'Cause I wanna give you a little taste
Of the sugar below my waist, you nasty boy

I'll give you some oh-la-la
Voulez vous coucher avec moi?
I got you breaking into a sweat
Got you hot, bothered, and wet
You nasty boy

Nasty naughty boy

Oh baby for all it's worth
I swear I'll be the first to blow your mind
Now if you're ready, come and get me
I'll give you that hot, sweet, sexy loving (loving)

Hush now, don't say a word
I'm gonna give you what you deserve
Now you better give me a little taste
Put your icing on my cake
You nasty boy

Oh no, oh there I go again
I need a spanking, 'cause I've been bad
So let my body do the talkin'
I'll slip you that hot, sweet, sexy loving

Ohh ha!
Come on daddy!
Ohh ohh, ohh ohh oh yeah
Oh yeaah oh, come on, sugar

I got you breaking into a sweat
Got you hot, bothered, and wet
You nasty boy

Nasty naughty boy
Naughty boy

Oh baby for all it's worth
I swear I'll be the first to blow your mind
Now that you're ready, give it to me
Just give me that hot, sweet, sexy loving

Now give me a little spanking
Ohh, ohh, is that all you've got?
Come on now, don't play with me

Oh give me that hot, sweet, nasty
Boy don't you make me wait
Now you better give me a little taste
Put your icing on my cake
You nasty boy

Mmmm

. . .


(Clip of this song at the beginning of
the 'Ain't No Other Man' video.)

I got trouble, trouble, trouble
Always knockin' at my door
Yes, I'm a whole lot of trouble, baby
Just like a kid in a candy store
Well I'm nothing but trouble, babe
Now since the day that I was born

. . .


Seems like it was yesterday when I saw your face
You told me how proud you were, but I walked away
If only I knew what I know today
Ooh, ooh

I would hold you in my arms
I would take the pain away
Thank you for all you've done
Forgive all your mistakes
There's nothing I wouldn't do
To hear your voice again
Sometimes I wanna call you
But I know you won't be there

Ohh I'm sorry for blaming you
For everything I just couldn't do
And I've hurt myself by hurting you

Some days I feel broke inside but I won't admit
Sometimes I just wanna hide 'cause it's you I miss
And it's so hard to say goodbye
When it comes to these rules

Would you tell me I was wrong?
Would you help me understand?
Are you looking down upon me?
Are you proud of who I am?

There's nothing I wouldn't do
To have just one more chance
To look into your eyes
And see you looking back

Ohh I'm sorry for blaming you
For everything I just couldn't do
And I've hurt myself, ohh

If I had just one more day
I would tell you how much that I've missed you
Since you've been away
Ooh, it's dangerous
It's so out of line
To try and turn back time

I'm sorry for blaming you
For everything I just couldn't do
And I've hurt myself by hurting you

. . .


Lord have mercy on my soul
For I have walked the sinful road
That I'm down on my knees
Lord have mercy on me, please

Ohh yeah

Jesus, I must confess
That in all my loneliness
I've forsaken and I've sinned
Leaving fragments of a man so broken

I could tell you what I've done
Or should I tell you where I went wrong?

Well the more that I start to play
My deceitful, evil ways
Keep on growing stronger by the day

Oh lord have mercy on my soul
For I have walked a sinful road
So I'm gonna get down on my knees
Beg forgiveness to help set me free
Lord have mercy on me, please

Mother Mary full of grace
In my weakness, I've lost faith
I've been careless, and I have been warned
And the devil inside me is torn
God bless the men that I have scorned

Oh lord have mercy on my soul
For I have walked the sinful road
So I'm gonna get down on my knees
Beg forgiveness to help set me free
Lord have mercy on me, please

Woah, woaa yeah yeah
Woa yeah yeah oh oh
Oh-oh yeah yeah yeah, ohh

So don't let me fool around no more
Send your angels down to guide me through that door
Well I've gone and confessed my regrets
And I pray I'm not held in contempt
I'm so lost, and I need you to help me repent

Oh lord have mercy on my soul
Oh I'm begging, I'm pleading, I'm needing
I want you to know
So I'm down upon my knees
Oh lord, I need forgiveness
I need forgiveness from you

. . .



It's not so easy loving me
It gets so complicated
All the things you gotta be
Everything's changing
But you're the truth
I'm amazed by all your patience
Everything I put you through

And when I'm about to fall
Somehow you're always waiting with
Your open arms to catch me
You're gonna save me from myself
From myself, yes
You're gonna save me from myself

My love is tainted by your touch
Well some guys have shown me aces
But you've got that royal flush
I know it's crazy everyday
Well tomorrow maybe shaky
But you never turn away

Don't ask me why I'm crying
'Cause when I start to crumble
You know how to keep me smiling
You always save me from myself
From myself, myself
You're gonna save me from myself

I know it's hard, it's hard
But you've broken all my walls
You've been my strength, so strong
And don't ask me why I love you

It's obvious you tenderness
Is what I need to make me
A better woman to myself
To myself, myself
You're gonna save me from myself

. . .



So many years have gone by
Always strong, tried not to cry
Never felt like I needed any man
To comfort me in life
But I'm all made up today
A veil upon my face
But no father stands beside me
To give his bride away

Well I'm standing in the chapel
Wearing my white dress
I have waited for this moment
With tears of happiness
Here I leave behind my past
By taking the chance
I've finally found the right man

Thoughts racing fast through my mind
As I'm gazing down the aisle
That my future will mend the memories
Torn between father and child

My emotions overload
'Cause there is no hand to hold
There's no shoulder here to lean on
I'm walking all on my own

Here I go

Now I'm standing at four corners
To have and to hold
Now my love, you stand beside me
To walk life's winding road
And I owe it all to you
For taking the chance
You've shown me there's a right man
'Cause I never knew a right man

Well I'm standing in the chapel
Ready to confess
That I've waited for this moment
With tears of happiness
Now I leave behind my past
By taking the chance

Ohh

Well I'm standing at four corners
To have and to hold
Now my love, you stand beside me
To walk life's winding road
And I owe it all to you
For taking the chance

And one day my little girl
Will reach out her hand
She'll know I found the right man
