De La Soul – Greuhounds (ft. Usher)

~

Fresh from a bible belt town
That’s what she’s givin’ up
Not really livin’, just flesh comin’ off a greyhound
Right at a blink of an eye he provides her with charm
Hides that he is a shark
Suggests a few apartments, never hints to the home
That’s what he wanna do
She just wanna new zip code for an old dream
Lost in an appetite now the big apple might
Find her habit of a queen
Feel the negro that’s filled with an equal match road
Destination unknown
She’s Little Bow Peep
And her and her whole sheep gonna have their wool unsewn
Now the wolf give a push
Now watch her jump in with two feet
Blue heat don’t know how to swim through the limbs
Everyone huggin’ her, tuggin’ her
Ride on the merry-go-round of four drinks and two white lines
Go fast with the fast life so she needs more
One fun fix, now a daily chore
Provide the score, written and produced so perverse
He’s a pro well versed
Told her that the purse that she want
With the shoes that she love and the rent that she need paid
Can be earned with speed in a day
Escort on the high class side
Champagne glass rides
White snow waterfalls, oh how time flies
When you’re flyin’, crash and burn
She learned that her soul was dyin’
That’s worth savin’
She’s cravin’ that bible belt town
So she crawls back on the Greyhound

[Usher]
Next stop, NYC
Take your seats please
I know exactly where you’re goin’, I can see it on your face
I know how to get there
And I give you my word that I get you there safe
I don’t need to check your baggage
I don’t need to know your name
All I need to know is
By the time you arrive, you’ll forever be changed

Fresh new Gucci belt, bound
Fast to the city scape
Dash to deliver fate

Stashed in this duffel bag, proud
It’s no scaredy cat
Life was always spared in thy name
That the gamblers fold
No chips if the scramble got cold
But them warm cushions and them soft bus seats
Push that second thought along
Beneath the roof of a Super 8, he sleeps till it’s night time
Then connects in the streets like a pipe line
In dark shades he supplies dark brigades
Of lost souls with his chemical morsels
He’s no lab tech
He was born into a legacy stretched from Aztecs and beyond
Assets he was drawn to
Had him spreadin’ the wool over his mother’s eye
He’s the black sheep
His pops career driven, he’s the backseat
The man on the wheel that cruises on sunrise
That the man brought eyes to his pay per view
Kind of paper make a fool shoot his statement through
And take the label too
Until he’s can bait
Till a pancake pocket change the landscape
Take a short visit home in the town
It’s time to re-up, it’s back on the Greyhound

[Usher]
Next stop, NYC
Take your seats please
I know exactly where you’re goin’, I can see it on your face
I know how to get there
And I give you my word that I get you there safe
I don’t need to check your baggage
I don’t need to know your name
All I need to know is
By the time you arrive, you’ll forever be changed

[Usher]
By the time you arrive, you’ll forever be changed
By the time you arrive, you’ll forever be changed
Forever be changed, forever be changed
So watch where you’re goin’
And this food you’re chosin’
I don’t need to check your baggage
I don’t need to know your name
All I need to know is
By the time you arrive you’ll forever be changed
Forever be changed, be changed
You’ll forever be changed

Song Choice of the Day

J. Cole – Work out

~

(I wanna see you work for me, work out for me)

Hey, we got a good thing
Don’t know if imma see you again
But is that a good thing?
Cause girl I can’t be your man, no ma’am

I know what’s on your brain
You’re probably hoping it never would end
Like is it the real thing
Or is it just a one night stand?

Let me see you get high and go low
Now girl won’t you drop that thing down to the floor
I’m here for one night, how far would you go?
I wanna see you work out for me, work out for me

High and go low
Now girl won’t you drop that thing down to the floor
I’m here for one night, how far would you go?
I wanna see you work out for me, work out for me

[Verse 1]
She like them boy with the big old chains
Ride around town in the big old range
I knew her when I rock big old chains
Now the little nigga doing big old things

Would you look at that, I came back for her
Just to give it to you, like you asked for it
Man that thing in them jeans too fat for it
It rebounds so I caught it off the backboard

I told her, baby girl come here
Know I run the town even when I ain’t from there
And I brag hardly but just to show up at this party
I made what your nigga make in one year, that’s unfair but

So is life, take a chance, roll a dice
Money can’t buy you love cause it’s overpriced
Don’t overthink just hope it’s right
I’m only here for the night

Hey, we got a good thing
Don’t know if imma see you again, see you again
But is that a good thing?
Cause girl I can’t be your man, no ma’am

I know whats on your brain
You’re probably hope it never would end
Like is it the real thing
Or is it just a one night stand?
Well then

Let me see you get high and go low
Now girl would you drop that thing down to the floor
I’m here for one night, how far would you go?
I wanna see you work out for me, work out for me

High and go low
Now girl won’t you drop that thing down to the floor
I’m here for one night, how far would you go?
I wanna see you work out for me, work out for me

[Verse 2]
Carolina blue kicks, fresh on the scene
Hottest nigga on the block, damn girl you mean
They be starting shit, but it’s your world
On my Martin shit, you go girl!

She bad and you know it, some of ’em save hoes
I’m not that heroic
Could you be my escort?
Cause just like them two door Fords

Damn, they don’t make ’em like you no more
Cole World, real Cole World
Them boys cool, me I’m on fire
Know what’s on my mind, tryna see what’s on yours tonight

Tonight, tonight
Move slow, cause you wanna live fast
Up late so you probably skip class
Life is a test so before the night pass
Get right, get right

Hey, we got a good thing
Don’t know if imma see you again, see you again
But is that a good thing?
Cause girl I can’t be your man, no ma’am

I know what’s on your brain
You’re probably hoping it never would end
Like is it the real thing or is just a one night stand?
Well then

(Cole World)

Straight up, now tell me do you really wanna love me forever?
Oh, oh, oh
Or is it just a hit and run?

(Well, hey)

Straight up I tell ya I just really wanna cut when we together
Oh, oh, oh
Come here girl, let’s get it on

(Work out for me, work out for me)

Straight up now tell me do you really wanna love me forever?
Oh, oh, oh
Or is it just a hit and run?

Well, straight up I tell ya I just really wanna cut when we together
Oh, oh, oh
Come here girl let’s get it on

(Work out for me, work out for me)
