What If Another Universe
Complete With Sun And Moon
An Entire Galaxy And What's Worse
U And Eye 2 Soon
Find Each Other Xpanding Beyond This Dirty Room
Butterscotch Mountains
Sun Shine

Run Ur Fingers Up And Down The
Obelisk In The Earth
Down 2 33 RPMs Where
The Primordial Gives Birth
Or Else We Lie Neck High U And Eye
In One Another's ooze
Volcano Magic
Summer Time

Everybody Knows What Happens
When U Worship From Afar
The Ebb And Flow Of Angels
Dancing Around The Star
And If The Sunrise Still A Question
The Answer's In The Dark

. . .

Ouh uuuh
Come on

I don’t hardly know her
But I think I could love her
I hope she walks over
Cuz I’ve been waiting to show her
Crimson and Clover
Over and over

Baby, I think I love you
I want to know for sure
Come here and stick it to me one time
You move me

Such a sweet thing
Makes me want to sing
What a beautiful feeling
Crimson and clover
Over and over

Baby I, I think I love you
But I want to know for sure
O come here, stick it to me one time
Ah .. you don’t move me (?)
Look up!

. . .

It didn't hit me til the morning after
All eye remember was a kiss and then you were gone
And then eye missed ur smile, the sound of ur laughter
And now eye'm sleeping on the side you slept on
At first eye felt the only reason you left me
Was the proposition that eye spoke in ur ear
Eye ain't a doctor but eye know this ain't healthy
Instead of counting sheep, eye'm counting tears

Eye coulda drove you home but you wouldn't let me
Eye didn't care how far, or if it was near
Ain't tryin 2 push you cuz eye know you just met me
Eye'm just wishin that you were here

Eye'm not the kinda man that's sad and lonely
It's just that something tells me ur the one
Even if you love somebody else it's only
Better if eye get the chance the moment you're done

Please don't tell me that you lost my number
Just come back over if you don't wanna call
Eye've got some music that will make you rhumba
We can jam baby all nite long

. . .

If I never get to hold your hand
If I never get to be your man
That’s ok, cause I’ve got other plans
Right now, right now

If I never get to kiss your lips
If I never get to feel your hips
Close to me
That’s ok, I ain’t gonna trip
Not now, no how

Cause I’ve got 4ever (forever), 4ever (forever)
Eternity is just one kiss away
So they say

The Opera just got all the fair
Cyprus, if I never get to take you swimming there
If you never know how much I care .. oh
I swear, it’s not fair (it’s not fair.. no!)

If I never get to make you laugh .. uh
If we never get to take a bubble bath
See I don’t want to part with you, not tonight
Gonna be apart of my plans (don’t do it)
I just want,I just want
Listen, I just want
4Ever .. oh
I just want 4Ever
Eternity is just one kiss away
What you say?

Forever …

So many things we can do in the new world
I could be your future lover
You can be my future girl
Prince Lyrics on

If I never get to see your smile
Underneath a white veil walking up the isle
I just might go crazy
I might go wild (might go wild)
So let me tell you baby
Stop lookin’ at me like that
less your wanting me to bite dat

4Ever, 4Ever … yeah uh!
Eternity is just one kiss away
What you say?

4Ever, 4Ever
I don’t want to kiss your lips, till I get to grunt your hips

. . .

Wanna talk about it
Colonized Mind

Upload, the evolution principle
You see a rock on the shore and say
“It’s always been there”

Download, no responsibility
Do what you want, nobody cares
Prince Lyrics on

Upload, the master race idea
Genetically disposed to rule the world

Download, future full of isolated
Full of isolated, boys and girls

Upload, the 2 party system
The lesser of 2 dangers,
Illusion of choice

Download, their form of fascism
Nothing really ever changes
You never had a voice

Listen to me one time :

If you look, you’re sure gonna find
Throughout mankind’s history
A Colonized Mind

The one in power makes law
Under which the colonized fall
Without God, it’s just the blind leading the blind

Upload, a joint venture record deal
It’s just another way another man can still sleep
While he’s sticking you with the bill

Download, a temporary acquisition
of fleeting fame and fortune
Nothing to leave in your will
Hey hey hey hey


Upload, a child with no father
Download, no respect for authority
Upload, a child with no mother
Download, a hard time showing love

If you look, you’re sure gonna find
Throughout mankind’s history
A Colonized Mind
The one in power makes law
Under which the colonized fall
Without God : it’s just the blind leading the blind

Eye could tell by the color of ur
Nrg field
U thought this game was over
Chemical peel
U tried 2 do me like my good brother steve
But eye got another funky
Trick up my sleeve
Expecting me 2 freak on you a little bit more
But you get nothin but well-wishes
& flowers galore
Eye mean no harm
Eye still got ur back
U can come and drink my wine
As a matter of fact

Just feel better, feel good, feel wonderful

Eye don't know what you thought
When you spit in my face
But this dimension ain't the time
Or the place
Eye don't know who told you u could
Stand next 2 me
Cuz eye got a guitar that could
Part the sea
Don't mean no disrespect
Eye ain't tryin' 2 brag
But that might b the same one that
Tapped on the crag

And brought 4th the water
That quenched ur thirst
And we'll keep feeding ya
But first things first!

Feel better, feel good, feel wonderful

If you think about how much time it took
4 you 2 try 2 get a page in my book
Eye feel so good right now
Eye just can't recall
What the __ eye was thinking when eye
Threw you the ball

It hit 3 bystanders after you touched it
Now they wanna sue me but they love me 2 much
Cuz they know eye wish them heaven and all of its gold
Same 2 u, come on let's groove
2 the purple rock 'n roll

Feel better, feel good, feel wonderful

Better than good, better than good,
U know you should feel wonderful
Keep ur mind in the vertical motion
Always looking up

. . .

Hey baby what's ur name?
Do you wanna play a game?
Play it like we don't know when
We'll ever get 2 play again
Xperimental and so brand new
The things eye wanna do with you
Like a physical kind of blue
Come on baby let's get 2 it

Eye want a lover that can improvise
Eye want a lover that can make me cry

Baby eye don't care what you learned in lovemaking school
U and me we 'bout 2 jam
Make love like the first woman and man
Eye don't wanna know ahead of time
The notes you play should b a
Reaction 2 mine
Nothing planned or contrived
Then both of us will arrive
At r destination

Eye wanna feel like eye've been hypnotized
If you think you can then let's go 4 a ride

Love like jazz... love like jazz... love like jazz

77 Beverly Park

[No lyrics]

. . .

Where am eye?
Universe of paradoxical design
Reality merely in the mind
In my head or in some German town
She said “you want a four leafed clover in the ground”

Ain’t superstitious and eye don’t believe in luck
Eye heard the thunder before the lightning struck
Couldn’t read the writing cause it was so small
But according to the document she got on the wall

She is down, like the Wall of Berlin
Eye come round about a quarter to ten
We just met, oh at least we pretend
It’s so fresh knocking down the Wall of Berlin

Where am eye?
Galaxy of monumental delight
Or parallel hologram copyright
The car comes unexpected like a mother in the park
The sound of a train, it erupts the question mark

I Like it
Who r u gonna b 2night baby?
Is that the queen of Sheba or an alien dream
The marks on the table say somewhere in between
Not one for rituals but one thing eye’ve found
Everything’s better when your come around

We get down, like the wall of Berlin
Eye come round about a quarter to ten
We just met, oh at least we pretend
It’s so fresh knocking down the Wall of Berlin

[guitar and drum solo]

. . .

Here she come, the most popular girl
In the whole wide world 2day
U don't know if she would but what's good if she'd some & look ur
U're standing over there tryin' 2 b gangsta coppin' ur favorite lean
U give her the head nod
O my god you're the craziest thing
She's ever seen but ur

And she's loving you all night long
In ur little world she's ur best girl
It's all money
Ain't nothing wrong
Ur dancing and she's loving you all night long

Funky dolla bill it's real you'all
Easy come, easy gone

Where you go everybody wanna know
So they can put it in a magazine
Next 2 the ad 4 the latest fad
In black hair care - vaseline
With this car these rims this grill you'll b
The illest on the scene
Whatever whatever all you need is ur music
And you'll b a party machine and you'll b


How many times you look 4 happy
And you never c the rich folx there?
But if the dj really dropped a needle all the tru players just don't
When all the news just gimme the blues and make you wanna pop a pill
What difference does it make who gots the most bank, it's just ink and


Pawns aside who's the king the 2 and 4
Wit hot sauce from the bay 2 baltimore
Take ur woman 4 she hit the front door
And whoop ur whole crew cuz they fat and slow

Dancing loving you all night long
It's all money ain't nothing wrong
Dancing loving you all night long
Easy come easy gone

. . .

I was born, raised on a slave plantation
In the United States, of the red, white and blue
Never knew that I was different, till Dr. King was on a balcony
Lyin' in a bloody pool
I expected so much more from a loving
A loving, loving society
A truthful explanation, you know what
I got another, another conspiracy

If it was just a dream, listen, call me, call me a dreamer too

With more rewards and accolades, then anyone before or after
21st century, oh what a shame, what a shame
Race, race still matters
A race to what, and where we going
We in the same boat, but I'm the only one rowing

Last time I checked, you were sleeping, but you can call me a dreamer too
(What's up with this)

Peanut butter logic, served on a bed of lies
Don't go down too easy, when you've seen your father cry
Have you ever clutched the steering wheel in your car too tight
Praying that police sirens just pass you by that night
While the helicopter circles us, this theory's getting deep
Think they're spraying chemicals over the city
While we sleep

Come on, I'm staying awake
you can call me a dreamer too
(Ahhh, I got one eye open for these devils)

(Wake up, wake up)

(I pledge allegiance, to..)

...Back To The Lotus

[No lyrics]

. . .

It really don't matter who you get with
Cuz it just ain't meant 2 b

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

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

Late afternoon slipped outta my bed
Turned up the stereo
About 2 raise the dead

Slipped in the bathroom
Put some olive oil in my hair
Walked in the closet
Tryin' 2 find something 2 wear

Then I check my emale
2 c where the party b
Change the names 2 protect the guilty
And get ready 2 creep
Should eye bring somebody
Or dance alone?
It don't matter 2 me u'all
Cuz 2nite is on


Bout a half past ten and eye'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 b a scene
Cuz eye can't stand nobody cussin'
At me when I'm clean

Arms all around me
Soon as eye hit the door
Good thing I ate my spinach
U're thicker than b4
Oh what's this boy doing
Y he makin' that face
Don't he know eye have crazy friends with me
Ready 2 tear up this place?


Can't you c this is inevitable
What's the use in wastin' time?
U and me we could be com4table
All that takes is 4 you 2 make up ur mind
So now what's the matter?
U and me, we both dimes
Said we were
All them other pennies should scatter
We ought not waste this time
That's y...


. . .

So, what's the deal, y you frontin' keep it real
Do you wanna get funky with me?
If you think eye got something that you want,
Suga nothin' here comes 4 free

Eye been around this way
Got lost and found
Lemme c if you remember my name
U can try 2 get it but eye can't let you hit it
Cuz you never gon' b the same

Eye got a box a chocolates
That'll rock the sox of any
Girl that wanna come my way
And eye ain't got no time 2 waste
If she ain't makin' bank and scared of
What a brutha got 2 say

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

So what's the deal r you sportin' some wheels
Or r you ridin' in a limousine?
This ain't prom night and eye don't wanna
Fight so you betta get ur dirty clean
Eye hear ur words goin' up and down ur
Skirt ur gonna get a chance 2 prove it
U best believe if you wanna get wit me
It takes a real woman 2 do it

[Chorus (q-tip)]

So what's the deal r you gay or poppin' pills?
Y you still wanna take my hand?
This discotech is 'bout 2 make me a wreck
My feet r singin' louder than the band
Eye c you got the feelin'
Flashin' lights up on the ceiling
Say you gotta get ur weekend now
What difference does it make?
U 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

. . .

Eye like it when you dance cuz it gets me hot
Eye like it when you shake everything you got
Eye like it when you dance cuz it's so sexy
Eye like it when you dance 4 me

Eye like it when you think eye'm all alone
Ur the voice eye hear from the telephone
Tellin me all ur deepest fantasies
Eye like it when you dance 4 me...hallelujah

Eye like it when eye hear a knock
On my door
U r standing there in ur christian dior
Dark sunglasses in the pale moonlight
Eye like it when the scene is right
U can take ur wrap and lay it on the chair
If anybody finds it eye don't care
What we do 2gether makes history
Eye like it when you dance 4 me

Ur flamenco eyes r all like jazz
With every other sip of what's in ur glass
The sexier you get
The more ur in2 my stash
Eye like it when you dance for me

(dance... dance 4 me... dance... dance 4 me)

[Chorus x2]

Dance... dance... eye like it when you dance 4 me

. . .

I know that I'm not gonna sleep 2nite
Cuz u're not by my side and that ain't right
I thought that we bought this bed 4 two,
but what good is it if I'm not with u

Gimme a page on my 2-way
I'll hit u back with no delay
When u hear all eye've got 2 say
U're gonna c me
Whether in person or the phone
I've got 2 get u all alone
and when eye do baby it's on
U're gonna c me...U're gonna c me

There's never a minute that I find
that u don't ever cross my mind
if u could just hold me tight u'd c...
there's nothing harder 4 u than me

Gimme a page on my 2-way
I'll hit u back with no delay
When u hear all eye've got 2 say
U're gonna c me
Whether in person or the phone
I've got 2 get u all alone
and when eye do baby it's on
U're gonna c me...U're gonna c me

Gimme a page on my 2-way
I'll hit u back with no delay

U're the reason I took a rope and lassoed the moon
2 prove that when it comes 2 u
there's nothing I won't do...
I'd stare in2 the sun if u would be mine
It's not so great a leap since 2 all others I am blind

. . .

How beautiful r u? there's more than
A thousand replies
Could it b ur lips or ur golden eyes?
When eye think of an answer
That's when eye get so surprised
Another wonder of the world realized
That's y

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

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

How desperate am eye?
Eye wonder if you r what keeps me alive
Alone eye can't get as high
Even tho eye've tried

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


There's so much more 4 you and me 2 explore
Ooh baby baby
When you walk thru that door
Eye am gonna give you what u're waiting 4

Baby lemme break this down

Eye am gonna say this once
Then eye am gonna leave this town
If you can learn 2 open ur eyes under water
Then you and me won't drown
Without each other
Eue promise eye'll c you on the other side
Just believe in me and trust this ride
Eye am so sincere right now
Eye just...

Eye just want you here
Eye just want you near me baby
Eye'm scared eye'll cry
And love you like crazy
Eye'm flying above all fears
Eye haven't seen any tears not lately, no
Eye don't wanna land, not even maybe
Donny hathaway's "song 4 u" ain't the same
Without you

. . .

Hey Valentina tell ur mama
She should give me a call
When she get tired of runnin'
After you down the hall
B4 you came on2 the scene it was a hollywood mess
Ur mama was a movie queen
She was one of the best

Every boy had the hots 4 her,
Around the world even girls adored her
Mexican bombshell
Come 2 conquer the west

Hey Valentina tell ur 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 4 another
Rock 'n roll meeting
Oh Valentina tell ur mama
She should give me a call

Ur uncle sam used 2 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
Ur sweet little mama 2 stay

Curvier than
A fender stratocaster guitar...
Reality bender... from no greencard
2 superstar

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

Tell ur mama she should call up mia
In advance

If penelope wants 2 cruz
There ain't no way that we ain't gon dance
Tell ur mama should should give me a call
That's all

. . .

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

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

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

Anyone who's met you agrees
That no one 4gets you most of all not me
U can claim u'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 eye chose not 2 remind you
That you get better with time

This might seem absurd
2 someone so cultured
And 2 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
U'll b blind 2 not know that you get better with time

. . .

Every once in awhile
U need some ol' skool 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 2 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 2 wait
700 billion but myold neighborhood
Ain't nothing changed but the date


Ain't nothing ever come from complaining
Xcept a bitter heart, that's true
Follow along and you gon wanna do
Something b4 the next chorus is thru
The songs we sing
They used 2 mean somethin
Now every other one is just mean
Rather than reminisce eye'm telling you this
It's time 4 a brand new scene


Everybody's sinkin' in the quicksand
Created by the keeper of time
Cast aside by using ancient tricks
That changes ur state of mind
They got you catering the whims of the flesh
B4 you get ur paper right
Call me old fashioned
But back in the day
There wasn't no shorties in sight

1st come job then come marriage b4 shorty
Come out with the baby carriage call me
Old fashioned just clap yo hands just clap yo hands
Radio used 2 b local untouched by the man
Songs we used 2 sing used 2 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 2 the people
Power 2 the people

Put this thing on repeat go back 2 one
And just move ur feet tell ur friends prince and
The mplsound we can't be beat


. . .

9 out of 10 mortals agree 2day; 2 much fame causes spiritual decay

2 all the punx who believe life imitates music
No more candy 4 you we can't hang with you
2 all the punx who wanna b rock stars and do what they do
There's no future 4 you that's the life of a fool
No more candy, no more candy 4 you we're 2 funky and you can't handle r groove

2 all the freax in the magazines who never paid no dues
No more candy 4 you u can't sing it's true
2 all the freax walking in2 walls somebody put a spell on you
No more candy 4 you eye guess the devil got a brand new fool


2 all the haterz on the internet somebody's lookin' at you
No more candy 4 you they got ur number now, fool
2 all the suckerz winning anything and thanking the lord 4 what
They do
No more candy 4 you no more candy 4 you

Eye am 2 funky and you can't handle my groove.
