Original and similar lyrics
Stop And Smell The Roses Mac Davis (Davis/Severinsen) Hey Mister Where you going in such a hurry Don't you think it's time you realized There's a whole lot more to life than work and worry The sweetest things in life are free And there right before your eyes You got to Stop and Smell the roses You've got to count your many blessings everyday You're gonna find your way to heaven is a rough and rocky road If you don't Stop and Smell the roses along the way Before you went to work this morning in the city Did you spent some time with your family Did you kiss your wife and tell her that she's pretty Did you take your children to your breast and love them tenderly You got to Stop and Smell the roses You've got to count your many blessings everyday You're gonna find your way to heaven is a rough and rocky road If you don't Stop and Smell the roses along the way Did you ever take a walk through the forest Stop and dream a while among the trees Well you can look up through the leaves right straight to heaven You can almost hear the voice of God In each any every breeze You got to Stop and Smell the Roses You've got to count your many blessings everyday You're gonna find your way to heaven is a rough and rocky road If you don't Stop and Smell the Roses along the way You got to Stop and Smell the roses You've got to count your many blessings everyday You're gonna find your way to heaven is a rough and rocky road If you don't Stop and Smell the roses along the way

Use What I Got

JIMMY CLIFF "Jimmy Cliff"
I'm gonna use what I got To get what I need I'm gonna use what I got, use all I got To get what I need, yeah Look, I was born in a little old shack Didn't have enough to eat Not enough clothes on my back Lord knows I kept the faith A heart full of woe Now they're trying to get me At the end of my road Use what I got To get what I need I'm gonna use what I got, use all I got To get what I need, yeah The rich is content While the poor do without If you ask for some herb They don't know what you're talking about All say they answer As if they're on the wind It changes sometimes That why I'm afraid I've gotta Use what I got To get what I need I'm gonna use what I got, use all I got To get what I need, yeah The road of life is mighty steep When you're broke, busted and disgusted For you ain't got nowhere to sleep I'm gonna find me a woman to stand by my side 'Cause I'm so tired of running Can't find no place to hide I'm gonna use what I got To get what I need I'm gonna use what I got, use all I got To get what I need, yeah Use what I got, you know that I got to Use what I got, said I've got to Use what I got, you gotta use it Use what I got, use it all up now Use what I got, yes I have Use what I got, I've got to, got to Use what I got, said I got to Use what I got Use what I got

Trouble Again

QUIET RIOT "Down To The Bone"
[Carlos Cavazo - Kevin DuBrow - Frankie Banali - Bobby Rondinelli] I hear a black cat moaning In the middle of the night Like a smoke stack lightning That's burning bright I went down to the crossroads Where I met a man He said: I'll show you the way If you take my hand I ain't superstitious, but maybe I should I'd cast a spell on you if I could, if I could Oh no, here it comes Looks like I'm in trouble again Bad luck ain't heaven sent Looks like I'm in trouble, trouble again Standing in the shadows In the middle of the night Knee deep in quicksand It's getting really tight I got a voodoo woman Down Louisiana way She said: The devil gonna find you Nothing you can do, better get on your way You're on the wrong road at the right time There's a bad moon on the rise, on the rise Oh no, here it comes Looks like I'm in trouble again Bad luck ain't heaven sent Looks like I'm in trouble again Oh no, here it comes Looks like I'm in trouble again Bad luck ain't heaven sent Looks like I'm in trouble, trouble again I'm in trouble, trouble again I don't know when I'll be back again oh no Bad luck follows, it never ends The winding road can't take me home Oh no, here it comes Looks like I'm in trouble again Bad luck ain't heaven sent Yea get in trouble again They find do They find don't Looks like I'm in trouble again Look out It's way a goes Looks like I'm in trouble again Voodoo ahead, witchcraft behind Looks like me and trouble are two of a kind The die is cast, I can't break the mold Trouble's gonna follow me wherever, wherever I go

Dark Road

ANNIE LENNOX "Songs Of Mass Destruction"
It's a dark road And a dark way that leads to my house And the word says You're never gonna find me there oh no I've got an open door It didn't get there by itself It didn't get there by itself There's a feelin But you're not feelin' it at all There's a meaning But you're not listening any more I look at that open road I'm gonna walk there by myself And if you catch me I might try to run away You know I can't be here too long And if you let me I might try to make you stay Seems you never realise a good thing Till it's gone.. Maybe im still searchin But I dont know what it means All the fires of destruction are still Burnin' in my dreams There's no water that can wash away This longin' to come clean Hey yea yea.... I cant find the joy within my soul It's just sadness takin hold I wanna come in from the cold And make myself renewed again It takes strength to live this way The same old madness every day I wanna kick these blues away I wanna learn to live again... It's a dark road And a dark way that leads to my house And the word says You're never gonna find me there oh no I've got an open door It didn't get there by itself It didn't get there by itself

It Ain't Over

JON YOUNG
[x2:] When the road gets rough, And you had about enough, And you feel like giving up, Just remember that it ain't over, So when it seems like you by yourself (stay grindin' and you'll find all you need is yourself) [x2:] Don't rely nobody cause all you need is you Don't rely no one to get the job done It may seem hard, Every day is like a struggle, But I ain't going to stop, work through it, Ya I hussle on the streets, they bussle like life beat, Moving at light speed, Just slow it on down cause you too can be like me, You gotta a dream, reach for it, Don't let them stop you, Let em talk, let em hate, but don't let em knock you, You got a plan, stick to it, don't give it up, Cause if you did then you'll never be able to live it up, And don't be worrying about letting someone else down, Cause in the end you only got yourself to stand up proud, Let me hear you say yes I'm gonna make it Scream it loud so they no what life gives you, when you can take it. [x2:] When the road gets rough, And you had about enough, And you feel like giving up, Just remember that it ain't over, So when it seems like you by yourself (stay grindin' and you'll find all you need is yourself) You might get a little help along the way, But it's on you, If you don't come through, You can only blame who, That's yourself, ain't nobody fittin' to take the blame, not even Akon, You gotta do your own thing, it don't matter who you got in your corner, If you decide to up and quit, then it's on your shoulders, It all comes down to you and yourself, It's me, myself and I, can't rely on no help, Cause you never really no what's around the bend, Your girl might cut you loose so you could lose your best friend, Then your back to square one, all alone, on your own but all you need is you, so keep on. [x2:] When the road gets rough, And you had about enough, And you feel like giving up, Just remember that it ain't over, So when it seems like you by yourself (stay grindin' and you'll find all you need is yourself) [x4:] Don't rely nobody cause all you need is you Don't rely no one to get the job done

Just So You Know

KANDI "Hey Kandi"
I just grow weaker as the days go by I cry so much there's no reason to wipe my eyes Way down deep inside my mind I still deny that I must say goodbye To the one I thought would always be mine Now I believe that what we give comes back to us in time And I believe that if you search for long enough you'll find What you always knew to be the truth was right before your eyes And so if I...if I have to let you go Chorus: Darling, just as long as you know Wherever you go If there's a road that leads you back my way I'll be at the end of that road Just so you know I...I'm gonna be there There's just no easy way to prepare for something like this Cause you never know just what you'll do Until the moment exists See, I tried to tell my heart to just behave My lips wanna beg you to stay...but it'll be okay If I can convince my arms to let you go Now, I don't know how I'll ever get over this Cause there's this chance That you might find somebody else I'm hoping the odds are all against it But if you do and it's not what you want in your heart If it's tearing you apart, you need to come on back here Chorus: Darling, just as long as you know Wherever you go If there's a road that leads you back my way I'll be at the end of that road Just so you know I...I'm gonna be there Just a few years ago I was told the best way to keep Something precious...set it free Cause love will span the distance And if you ever find yourself At the lonesome road You just turn around I will be around I will be right there I'll be waiting for you My love is gonna be there Chorus (3x) Darling, just as long as you know Wherever you go If there's a road that leads you back my way I'll be at the end of that road Just so you know I...I'm gonna be there
