Planet Earth (07/24/2007)
. . .

Imagine holding Planet Earth in the palm of your hand
With no regard for your place of birth or claim to any land
The only thing between us now is the truth we understand
If Planet Earth was in the palm of your hand
50 years from now what will they say about us here?
Did we care for the water and the fragile atmosphere?
There are only 2 kinds of folk and the difference that they make
The ones that give and the ones that take
Just like the countless bodies that revolve around the sun
Planet Earth must now come into balance with the one that caused it all to be
Then we'll see kingdom come, so shall it be written, so shall it be sung
Imagine you could rid the Earth of anyone you choose
Which ones would you need the most and which ones would you lose?
Do you want to judge another lest we be judged too?
Careful now... the next one might be you
Imagine sending your first born off to fight a war with no good reason
How it started and what they are fighting for
And if they're blessed to make it home will they still be poor?
Pray for peace right now and forever more

(Like I love my Guitar)

Get dirty at the club we're in
Use it around your waist like a chain within
I got that call so I jumped in my car
I love you baby
but not like I Love my Guitar

Not like I love my Guitar

You couldn't do it all by yourself
You had to go and get somebody else
Your High enough to call
But you can't reach the phone
I love you baby
But not like I love my Guitar

Not like I love my Guitar
Turn it up

I tried to warn you
That its hard to be a star
Especially when your driving other peoples car
Would of gave you mine
But you took it to far
I Love you baby
Just not like I love my Guitar

Not like I love my Guitar

(Guitar Solo)

I know you love me
And you want to be Friends
And if you dont at least you need to pretend
We're still together
If we dont get that far
I love you baby but not like I love this Guitar

I love you baby and I wish you well
I'll write a letter when I learn how to spell
I know we planned a trip but then I fell
In love with something else... know the rest

You know I love you baby
But not like I love my Guitar
I love you baby
But not like I love my Guitar
But not like I love my Guitar

. . .

i know u're out there
i can feel ur eyes on me
the same influence and touch
cuz love is just 2 much

i know u're ready for me
i can feel ur hands on me
i really want u 2
but we're just 2 shy 2 speak

here on earth
all on earth
i feel
as long as u're here on earth

i know, i know u're out there
i feel u getting closer 2 me
i'm just wondering what u're waiting 4
when u know i am free

instead of ur rage, u could just page me
but that was a bridge, i just don't think i'd gauge
i like the face to face
do you want 2 do this at urs, or my place?

it's been so long
since i been with somebody
i admit
but now i'm here on earth

[Renato piano]

i know u hear me
like a whisper in ur ear
u don't have to feel me
u r the thing i hold so dear

i know u already love me
and now u're just 2 cute 2 say
somebody somewhere put u down
but that's ok, that's ok

when u feel
it's time 2 heal
nobody says
we're both here on earth

. . .

i know i ain't the first 2 tell ya
i'm sure i won't be the last
i know u're in a hurry baby
so lemme lick this fast

i've got a lot of money
i don't wanna spend it on me
i like pretty things and ur just as pretty as u can b

so u ain't busy later
and u want some company
i ain't trying 2 be a hater

but i'm the one
i'm the one
the one u wanna c
u wanna c

look around ya baby
u know u seen it all b4
every nickel in this club looking for a dime
nothing less nothing more

2 tall 2 beat ya down 2
...people under
...blind ... mental cats
that's why i come like thunder

i got a lotta money
but i don't wanna spend it on me
i like pretty things and ur just as pretty as u can b

if u ain't busy later
and u want some company
i ain't trying to be a hater

but i'm the one
i'm the one u wanna c
the one u wanna c

yeah yeah yeah yeah...

[guitar solo]

u don't need to fix ur hair
4 somebody u don't care
u don't need to shave ur legs
cos it ain't me that's knockin' at ur door

i know u ain't no pumpkin pie
i know u ain't a one night stand
i don't wanna waste ur time
if u wanna get creamy
i'm the one u wanna c
the one u wanna c baby
oh the one u wanna c
wanna c
i'm the one u wanna c

i'm the one u wanna c...

comin' on ya like thunder...

i'm the one u wanna c...

. . .

(Verse 1:)
I've heard it said my love was look-a-like
But could it be that I was lookin' 4 U?
They were cool but somethin' wasn't right
They had me fooled 4 a minute and then I saw the truth

None of them got what it aches, to be a future baby mama
Gotta bend in the wind but don't break, to keep your man
Show me of them and i'll make her mine with no more drama
Future baby mama....

(Verse 2:)

I've heard it said that I won't treat U right
But they ain't sure cuz I don't know nothin' about U
You're 2 secure 2 eva wanna fuss and fight
Tha's Y yo man neva eva got a reason to doubt U


Yeah I know U might b fine, but I've seen it all before,
Cinderella was a waste of time, then oops she's out the door
2 build a strong foundation, the thing that matters more,
Is under the floor, a strong foundation that lasts forever more

(Prince adlibs & chorus)

. . .

Mister, mister,
Love U mister

Come on

Call Mr Goodnight
He'll make U feel alright
Make U throw Ur head back and holla
So nice, so nice
Better not tell Ur girlfriend
U can try with all Ur might
Just can't keep a secret
'Bout goodnight, goodnight

Hey, baby, hey baby, hey, baby, sitting all alone in my courtyard
Lookin' as if U have every right
All over the world they call me Prince
But U can call me Mr Goodnight

Surely the dandies that escort U places
Imparted a rumour or 2
About the parade of lovely faces
That follow me ... surely they do?

What say U 2 that, lips so inviting
It's all I can do not 2 stare
What say U 2 them, past, present and future
That U don't care (I don't care)

If so, U'll be the first, and I'll give u the keys
2 the whip of Ur dreams, alright?
All over the world they call me Prince (yeah)
But U can call me Mr Goodnight


Now I don't wanna put to U 2 sleep with a bunch of chatter
And a rap that really don't matter
But now that U know who I am U need 2 make plans
And all Ur other pennies should scatter (scatter)

A limousine about 2 pick U up
And then took U 2 a private jet (2 fine) (yeah)
And then U gonna meet a little Spanish man
Who will offer U wine and Moet

In an hour or 2, U'll be taken to a suite
That will rock all Ur wildest dreams
And on the bed 3 dresses 2 choose 1, pick 1
Then U get a call from me (ring)

Tell me which dress U chose
So I can put on, put on my matching suit
All the real guys hold Ur hands up
U know how Mr Goodnight do it


I love U baby
I don't want nobody else

Call Mr Goodnight (U can call him) (any time at all)
Call Mr Goodnight (yeah, yeah, yeah) (I love U mister)

MP3: Mike Philly in the band like jams at midnight
Before the main attraction U'll see
Slow it down somewhere here on Earth
Just 2 check how ur reaction be

And if ur heartbeat goes up a notch or 2
There ain't no telling what I might do
I got a mind full of good intentions
And a mouth full of raisenets (better not tell U)

We can watch 'Chocolat' on the big screen
Before we convene in the pool (yeah)
The waterfall'll wash Ur cares away
Already I love U, I do


The energy in this field's been known to flicker lights, aye
A slip O' me with no rest, acapella moans and a break of sighs (goodnight)(call, call)
Undeterred nevertheless a masterpiece on butterscotch thighs (call, call)
Turn off the lights, turn off the lights
It's time for Mr Goodnight

. . .

Because I turned my eye toward U
Because I seek your hand
Every other woman envies U
And me, every other man

A massive circle of jealousy
Is coming round again
Those prickly fingered scallywags
That masquerade as friends

Make a promise this very night
That they will no longer pose
A threat to either 1 of us
Then let the chapter close

For all the midnights, in the world
This 1 will serve us better
If U choose to be my girl

Like Susan's petals
A wonderful life, the 2 of us shall lead
The children of the future've all the
Spiritual food they need

The secrets that the 1s before
With grace, they've come and shown
2gether with love 4 1another
We shall make them known

With the love and happy days
I number the grains of sand
Writing 12 times ever more
If I could be Ur man

Amethyst and rubies
Crystals and black pearls
I trade them all, just to spend with U
All the midnights, in the world

All the midnights, in the world

. . .

A model....... Used to be a role model

I dunno
Come on Chelsea!
I dunno
Come on (Uh-huh)

Ah, go ahead now Chelsea! Go ahead now!
Uh, this for Jersey right here.
Go ahead now!
(Ah, ah, ah, ah)

Chelsea Rodgers was a model
Thought she really rocked the road, yes she did
Kept her tears up in a bottle
Poured them out to save her soul

Ask her what she liked the most
She said, she liked to talk to Jimi's ghost, Ow!
Fantasy, her friends boast (This girl is fly)
Chelsea's fly, like coast to coast (Mmmm)
Hollywood or Times Square
If the party's fly, my girl is there (yes she is)
Purple's on and bounce in her hair
21st Century hippy, Chelsea don't care


Try to catch her if you can (Come on now together)
You never see her with my man (Uh, a brother got to jump n the water)
He must be baptized, according to the masterplan,
'Fore she give up the good thang
Go ahead Chelsea! (Go ahead Chelsea!)

No cut diamonds, and designer shoes (Uh, no-no!)
'Cause she's too original from her head down to her feet
(Rehab) (If you want to) (just don't mean no me)
Chelsea don't eat no meat, still got butt like a leather seat
Go ahead Chelsea! (Go ahead Chelsea!)


Go ahead Chelsea!
(Speak on that horn)

Come on
Next to her they just a fool.
Chelsea read more books than a few
Moses was a Pharoah in the 18th Dynasty
And Rome was chillin' in Carthage in 33 BCE
And the day that we stop counting, we live as long as a tree
Go ahead Chelsea, teach me! Go ahead Chelsea.

Make a promise to your higher self, get you nothing, fame and wealth
You don't be chasing nobodies ghost.
Of everything, make the most (Come on!)

(Chorus) x 2

. . .

Sitting on the floor of an all white room
Feeling like the color blue

Thinking about the words that I can use
2 get this through 2 U

A million mistakes and then some
I've made with the 1's before

I've probably passed my expiration date
But still I adore U
Adore U....

Looking 4 the energy 2 take U there
The places that U wanna go

Knowing if I do, U'r fully aware
The press will turn it in to a show (A show)

Everyone expects this outcome
But still they jump 4 all the clues

I guess I should be happy but I'm still not
Sure that U really love me.....
love me.....
love me.....
love me.....
U love me.....

Like the lion of Judah (Judah)
I'll strike my enemies down

As my god is living
Surely the trumpet will sound

There was 1 who would stand by my side
Through the the good and the bad

Let that 1 stand with pride

The best that I ever had
Like the lion of Judah

Driving away with a smile on my face
Wind blowing through my hair

Wondering how U'll feel when U find out
How much I really care (care)

Hoping that the tears roll down ur face (Down ur face)
Your body grasp who we are (Who are we?)

2 gypsy beggers who only
by Vegas came 2 be a star
A super star
A star
That's what we are...

Like the lion of judah (Judah)
I'll strike my enemies down

As my god is living
Surely the trumpet will sound


Like the lion of judah (Judah)
I'll strike my enemys down
Like the lion of judah (Judah)
Surely U....gonna hear the trumpet sound
Hear the trumpet sound

Lion....Judah ...

The lion of judah

. . .

(Come with it)

The main problem with war
Is that nobody ever wins
The next generation grows up
And learns how 2 do it all over again.

No matter who started the argument
Just matters how each one ends
How many people really want resolution?

The main problem with people
Is they never do what they say (They say)
1 minute they want peace (Want peace)
Then do everything 2 make it go away

Dropping bombs on each other
In the act of saving face
Tell me now people how is that resolution?

Either U do or U don't
Either U will or U won't
Making amends (Make amends)
Is a difficult pill 2 swallow

What can we lose if we try ?
With no water, a flower dies
With no1 2 lead resolution will follow

(Ohh, Yes it will)


Love is like a circle
No beginning and no end
A broken heart will mend
If U love it like Ur best friend

Handle Ur heart with care
It's as delicate as a wing
When the storms come again
Pray for resolution

Either U will or U won't (Either U will or U won't)
Either U do or U don't

Will U want resolution ? (Either U do or U don't)
Come On eveybody
All over the world (La,la,la,la,la)
All over the world (Do,do, do, do, do)
Tell me
How many people really want resolution?
