BARENAKED LADIES lyrics - Maybe You Should Drive

Life In A Nutshell

Original and similar lyrics
When she was three Her Barbies always did it on the first date Now she's with me, There's never any need for them to demonstrate She's like a baby, I'm like a cat; When we are happy, we both get fat and still It's never enough, It's never enough, It's never enough [Chorus] But I don't tend to worry 'bout the things that other people say And I'm learning that I wouldn't want it any other way Call me crazy but it really doesn't matter All that matters to me is she Her life in a nutshell No way would she want it to change me It's not that easy 'cause My time is often decided for me For me She memorized every pencil crayon color in the box Her blue-green eyes complement the burnt sienna in her locks She's at the movies, I'm on the phone; When we're separated, we're never alone, but still It's never enough, It's never enough, No it's never enough [Chorus] Her life in a nutshell No way would she want it to change me It's not that easy 'cause My time is often decided for me For me I fell down with no one there to catch me from falling Then she came 'round And only her tenderness stopped me from bawling my eyes out I'm OK, and that's why Her life in a nutshell No way would she want it to change me It's not that easy 'cause My time is often decided for me For me [Chorus]

NAS "Stillmatic"
[talking] Yeah, yeah, yeah yeah, Nas, uh, yo, yo Life, they wonder, can they take me under Nah, never that, nah, yo, yo I come from the housin tenement buildings Unlimited killings, menaces marked for death Better known as the projects where junkies and rock heads dwell Though I owe to it my success With survival of the fittest, everyday is a chal' I would think I'm a part of U.S.A. and be proud Confronted with racism, started to feel foreign Like, the darker you are the realer your problems I reached for the stars but I just kept slippin On this life mission, never know what's next Ancient kings from Egypt, up to Julius Cezar Had a piece of the globe, every continent Yo, there's Asia, Africa, Europe, France, Japan Pakistan, America, Afghanstan Yo, there's Protestants, Jews, Blacks, Arabics Call a truce, world peace, stop actin like savages No war, we should take time and think The bombs and tanks makes mankind extinct But since the beginning of time it's been men with arms fightin Lost lives in the Towers and Pentagon, why then Must it go on, we must stop the killin Tell me why we die, we all God's children [Chorus - Amerie, Nas in background] World is hating, that's forever (uh, c'mon) It's time that we stand together (yeah, for the world) Everybody wants to rule the world (what, what, what, what, what, c'mon) World (peace), world (peace), world (peace), world Yo, there's brothers on the block, posted up like they own it That's they corner, from New York to California Got blocks locked down Like, 'dog you safe whenever you with me, see this is my town' So the youngsters, grows in ghettos, goes to prison At an early age, already know it's against him So in order for him to survive, one day he must Open up his eyes to the set backs and rise 'Cause, everybody wants a shot, in this land of opportunity Look at what this country's got There shouldn't be nobody homeless How can the president fix other problems when he ain't fixed home yet The earth wasn't made for one man to rule alone To all colors increases, to home it belongs I want land, mansions, banks and gold The diamonds in Africa, oil in my control The world's natural resources, all its residuals But then comes foes, I have to gaurd it with missels And I become the most wanted But is it worth hearin a million people problems and followed by Secret Service I guess, attempts at my life with loaded barrels So move over Colin Powell or just throw in the towel, yo [Chorus] Y'all know that's my style, to hit you at the right time No other compares to what Nas write down Tell you my dreams, show you my pain is yours You could get what you love, be a chain in cause You alive right now There's so many that's dead or locked up inside the beast, I'm a hot light now It's whatever man think of manifest to the real The plan is to wake up 'cause time reveals All this hate can't forever last All my ghetto heroes in Heaven, it's like you right here and never passed You just transcend, I know I'm gon' see you again Hopin I reach the world leaders and win Ain't nothin without struggle, listen up, it's critical We used to fear arms, now the weapons are chemical In Hip-Hop, the weapons are lyrical To be the best you challenge the best, then the blessings are spiritual Top of the world for the kid and unless Poppin any rapper's head off his shoulders no contest I know the Most High hear me, so fly you can't near me You scared of a mirror, my theory is that - knowledge is power To every projects and every street corner, we gotta get ours now [Chorus] [talking] Yo, niggas ain't forget shit, know what I'm sayin Niggas ain't forget nothin Men, women and children killed by the police and shit Niggas ain't gon' forget that, you know what I mean Yo, what this war just show me is like, whatever you want out of life Whatever you feel is rightfully yours, go out and take it Even if that means blood and death You know, that's what I was raised up on, that's what this country's about This is what my country is, and my country's a muthafucka

Take Your Tyme

KRS-ONE "Spiritual Minded"
[KRS-One] Y'all don't know Y'all don't know your body is a temple A temple to the living God Don't get gassed y'all All my sisters out there, here's the truth You, a you've got to.. {TAKE.. YOUR.. TIME} Look, look! You don't want no unsteady relationships, you want it tight You don't want no man beggin and always gonna get, am I right You don't want no man sleepin cheatin freakin behind his wife There's no such thing as make love, it's really make life I don't care what nobody say; you sleep with a man, that's your husband So make sure, before you lay down, you love him And learn him, yes it's still sacred to be a virgin Relax, it's curiosity that always burns 'em in fact Sex is like candy, be disciplined, no splurgin You don't want your stomach hurtin Girl, you gotta.. {TAKE.. YOUR.. TIME} Listen! Cash is an issue with that he can never diss you Even if he makes you cry, you bought your own tissue witcha own case, witcha own hand, wipe ya own face And throw him out, no doubt, out of your own place If your heart is broken you can mend it If you're independent, your womanhood, that's when you defend it Just.. uhh, just {TAKE.. YOUR.. TIME} woo! Look! {TAKE.. YOUR.. TIME} Don't come witcha hand always out If he buys you somethin thank him, but that's not what a man is about Real men are real friends, showin their real commitment He tells you he really loves you, a boy can't really admit it If a man really wants you, that man really flaunts you In public or private a real man really supports you 'Member what Guru taught you Of course you Royalty You dress how you like when a QUEEN is what you ought to be and ought to act like, and also ought to manifest How you dress makes you constantly blessed, or constantly stressed {TAKE.. YOUR.. TIME} Yo! {TAKE.. YOUR.. TIME} Yo, yo So while you burnin off those calories, think about reality Get a skill for the salary, a man for the family Not a boy, that's a catastrophe, don't get mad at me Instead of always clubbin visit museums and art galleries Pick the single man, admirin the ancient sculpture He's cultured, chances are he won't insult ya Give him your number only after you know what he does Ask him what it is, not what it was You want the good life (GOOD LIFE) You want the good life (GOOD LIFE) You want the, you want the, you want the C'mon, you gotta {TAKE.. YOUR.. TIME}

Live & Let Die

SALT 'N' PEPA "Blacks' Magic"
I'm a sister with a grip on her life I only live once so I gotta get right The first time cuz there won't be a second I'm not in the mood to preach about the wrong of the world It can't be changed by three girls On the trio tip, we're not a proof of that trip Excuses, that's the truth when the proof compellin' I ain't tellin' or sellin' out to the pop life I like the spotlight Gimme a mic and a beat so I can speak words of wisdom I may be young, feed some, fall down, and filled up, I'm gonna build up Knowledge is food for thought so let's eat up Whatever goes up, comes down, you see nothin' lasts forever Not even MCs, you, he, she, and even I should live and let live Or live and let die Live and let die You're wastin' time tryin' to change the mind Of those who's souls are full of holes I do unto others as I wish them to do unto me Life ain't nothin' but death without money My way of thinkin' is one-track My method of convincin' combat Success is a mission, it's there for anyone who wants to do better You know where I'm comin' from Survival of the fittest, and I'll admit it's vicious I testify as a witness Let me say this first for what it's worth It's true that the meek shall inherit the earth But that don't mean you gotta be weak or soft Even on the mic you can't take no shorts I only help those who want to help themselves if no one else As a youngster they taught me to live and let live And that's what I always did, word to miz But there's a change in the world that I live in So don't be surprised if I live and let die Live and let die Live and let die That's the eighth time that baser almost O.D.'d, man Live and let die Yo, Finster, baby, went up for homicide Live and let die He's out there skeezin' with no jimmy hat Live and let die K-bone was shortin' the fuzz and got dumped Live and let die

T.I. "I'm Serious"
(feat. Jazze Pha) [Verse 1 - T.I.] They say love blind, so why can't I picture this guhl mine Yea I dig her but I figure, I'm wastin this guhl time I'm runnin from relationshipz, scared to commit Mad at monogamy, sexually, I'm a misfit But this shit's... way too much fo me Usually I can take'em and make'em a cut buddy Yo mama probably see me, and say that I'm no good I was born in the burbs, I was raised in the hood We from two seperate sides of life, two different backgrounds Shawty been legit and I just started to rap now I ain't tryina act now, I'm bein real witchu Really, I just wanted to kick it and chill witchu But the picture got bigger, 'fo I could even paint it Thoughts got deeper befo' a nigga could think A playa like me on this, strange ain't it One thang bout yo feelins is this, you can't change it Yo preception on me, I don't think I can maintain We flirtin with disaster, this game we playin iz dangerous You the best thang that happened since I don became famous But sometimes I think we shoulda remained strangers [Chorus - Jazze Pha] I... I chose you baby (Stay with me now, stay with me, sing it fo me shawty) I, I, I, I... I chose you baby (Ah, come on, uh, uh, uh c'mon) [Verse 2 - T.I.] I like you to persue, but still I respect it to let it go Give it time, give it room to breathe and let it grow I'll just tell her when I'm ready to change, I'll let her know Hate to say it, but til then be friendz and nuthin mo Evendoe anotha time, anotha life, anotha place I swear I know we coulda been great But rather than great, you lil heart take the smile of yo face So I can treat you righ, I'm willin ta wait And ain't shit fake, I know it sound funny comin from a felon But I think I got a piece of whuz up in heaven So to keep from, blockin mah blessings, think I better back up Last thang a nigga need now is bad luck But if my life was perfect shawty, I'da had her I guess, I guess I don't deserve it, ballaz tell me you ain't worth it So I gots to hit the surface, I'll holla when I holla Act like I don't wanna see ya, and I'on wanna call'er [Repeat Chorus 2X]

Winds

Amboog-A-Lard
God bless the child who has his own. But all creation isn't carved in stone. People are blind and they can't decide. Path of destruction leads to mindless suicide.. Mother looks but she'll never see, All the abuse, why don't we just set her free!!! We are trapped in a fortress of insanity. Life's potential, lost to hypocrisy. Aggravation turning to aggression, slipping slowly Into repression. We can look and we can see, The winds of change must set her free. Leave her be!! The winds of change, lost!!, in irony. Breaking down the walls of hate and all of those who separate. Segregation, civil war, tearing down confining doors. The fall of solidarity, burn the flag, set me free. Time for change, disengage, now its time to Rearrange, my life. Necessity!! Necessity!! Conformity!! Conformity!! Uniformity of their policy!! Sanity!! Sanity!! Insanity!! Insanity!! Deformity of what's meant to be!!
