Things Of This World

Original and similar lyrics
70 years is all we got To accumulate goods that seem to mean a lot For the first 20 years, you're off to school Learnin' principles and learnin' the tools To make lots of money, the ultimate goal Gain the whole world and yet lose ya soul Huh, humanism is on a roll 20 gets the the knowledge, 30 years to apply and just 20 years left for askin' why I didn't realize what it was all about And, was there any use in this rigorous route because (chorus) Things of this world are passin' away Here tomorrow, but they're sure not here to stay Things of this world are passin' away So lay your treasure above And start to live for Him today All done for self in this world will pass And all done for Christ in this world will last Sounds like a simple task... But everyday life seems to get in the way No time to serve, barely time to pray Our focal points lost and we get tossed In the wind, cold facing the cost Of fallin' without stallin' or even callin' the Lord While you were blackballin' He was waitin' for you to see the light And find for yourself, these things are trite (repeat chorus) (vamp) Our mind transforms a want to a need A simple process that we call greed Ya say ya like to have money, well I do too The problem starts when the money has you Workin' overtime to keep up with the pace A lifestyle that you want to embrace But it's 2 steps from where your needs are met You're keepin' up with the Joneses, but your all in debt Which will lead to stress, not meeting the bills While ya sportin' a Benz with all the thrills The domino effect's gotcha life in check A temporary stitch and ya livin' a wreck (repeat chorus 2x) Don't lay up your treasures upon this Earth They'll soon pass away And all return to dirt [4x] Things of this world are passin' away Here tomorrow, but they're sure not here to stay Things of this world, things of this world The things, the things, the things of this world Don't lay up your treasures upon this Earth They'll soon pass away And all return to dirt [2x]

A Joyous Song

BOYZ II MEN "Christmas Interpretations"
Love over flows around this season Our hearts find pleasure in the simplest of things It brings joy to a child When he sees all the decorations hanging all around The birthday of our king We sing praises to you People gather around to see a tree Light up the sky for all of the world to see Of all the holidays that exist None makes more happier than this one Chorus: I see love all around this world In every man, woman, boy, and girl The time is so right and I'll say Thank you Lord It's so great to be alive Because it's all about love As we sit around the fire place Windows fill with snow as it flutters down and gives the ground a glow I feel your kisses Your warm embrace Kneeling as we pray To thank our Lord for what he's done for us Time stands so still As I touch your hand it says things to me words never will I feel it (it's easy to feel) peace all the way inside Joy from a stranger as he walks by and says Hi, Merry Christmas to you and yours May you receive everything you wish for and more I see love Chorus (repeats five times)

Time

TOM WAITS
Well, the smart money's on Harlow and the moon is in the street the shadow boys are breaking all the laws and you're east of East St. Louis and the wind is making speeches and the rain sounds like a round of applause Napoleon is weeping in the Carnival saloon his invisible fiance is in the mirror the band is going home it's raining hammers, it's raining nails yes, it's true, there's nothing left for him down here Chorus And it's Time Time Time And it's Time Time Time And it's Time Time Time that you love And it's Time Time Time And they all pretend they're orphans and their memory's like a train you can see it getting smaller as it pulls away and the things you can't remmeber tell the things you can't forget that history puts a saint in every dream Well she said she'd stick around until the bandages came off but these mamas boys just didn't know when to quit and Matilda asks the sailors are those dreams or are those prayers so just close your eyes, son and this won't hurt a bit Chorus Well, things are pretty lousy for a calendar girl the boys just dive right off the cars and splash into the street and when she's on a roll she pulls a razor from her boot and a thousand pigeons fall around her feet so put a candle in the window and a kiss upon his lips till the dish outside the window fills with rain just like a stranger with the weeds in your heart and pay the fiddler off till I come back again Chorus

Things I've Been Through

JADAKISS "The Last Kiss"
Uh huh. I just wanna thank yall for taking the time to listen Ah-ha I appreciate that [Jadakiss] Yo, from regular TV to cable; from bouncing label to label Just trying to get the horse out of the stable Was once part of the dynasty, at least I was trying to be Think it was the time of my life when I was fine to me Sitting in the spot with the dimes Willing to do anything just to be a Bad Boy at the time (That's right) Then I rolled the dices, naw the money didn't add up But just that whole experience, it was priceless No free rides to the bank, on top of that Was the untimely demise of Frank (B.I.) Then the 'No Way Out' tour, we was smoking outdoor Me and 80 stacks off cee-lo, that's without tour Videotaped it all, I still watch it now Travel the world, learned how to rock a crowd It ain't much but it beats poor Things that I've been through is all I can speak for [Chorus: Luther Vandross samples from "Promise Me"] I can only speak for The things that I've been through [Repeat 2x] [Jadakiss] Now I'm on Ruff Ryders/Interscope, same shit Partnership, joint venture, fifty-fifty, same split Jimmy put the money up, two singles off of 'We Are the Streets' Then after that, seem like he was done with us But it wasn't over yet, Stout had a plan from the jump Which was to come out with my solo next Things a little better, these the niggas that I've been doing it with forever So I'm like whatever First album dropped, promotions was hella Every stage I rocked, the performance was stella Had the whole world ready to Ryde or Die for me And I wasn't even platinum, I was just side money X was bringing in the moolah I was in the hood in the kitchen with the digital ruler Can't tell you about the evil that men do I can only speak for the things that I've been through [Chorus: Repeat] [Jadakiss] As far as The LOX, we all fine, seller is all wine Selfish for me to say that Roc-A-Fella is all mine Cause it ain't, I'm just another employee that's on line Trying to get my act together and do it one more time Twenty-one gun salute with all 9's And I know it's on me to make sure we all shine Fall back, let the weed contact your mind Define bullshit in any contract you sign If you from the streets though, there's plenty of loopholes to eat yo Once they let you in, you suppose to keep dough But I can't give you the formula, I'm on it though Expect the worst, the outcome is enormous though Stay humble, still keep your heat for insurance though Things that I been through to get it weren't normal yo Yeah, this is what my heart beats for yo Things that I've been through is all I can speak for [Chorus til fade]

Black On Black Crime

GP Wu "Don't Go Against the Grain"
[Pop The Brown Hornet] I'm not sure no more, constant war What's it all for Everybody out here poor Niggas cuttin throat, got crackheads sellin soap Little shorties down the block pushin dope and coke Try and make it out the ghetto, where you gon run to Overseer got you exactly where he want you In the projects doin fucked up things Like sellin crack, it's like my whole family's fiends If it ain't one thing it's bound to be another Peace to all the three time felons, word to mother Niggas gettin hit with outrageous bids While the next man's in the world raisin your kids Now what you gon do, it's all up to you Be your own man or run behind your crew If you get bagged don't expect no help In the street life erybody roll for delf Chorus: (2x) Black on black crime, you know it got to stop It's time that my peeps we start reachin for the top The only way we gonna get there is together Let's start the revolution, you know I'm for whatever If I had one wish, every black man would be rich Own they own property, have they tailor-made bitch Live peacefully in luxury, comfortably Every memory would be a buttermilk fantasy We'd enjoy the great outdoor, muthafuck war Everyday lived would be like a paid rapper on tour Without the problems, we don't really need em Every wiz would be a dime, every nigga would be handsome The only drug would be jaw weed With a little bombazee, that's all a black man need Money would be somethin that we burned in the fire While lampin in Alaska with your midnight desire Sippin on daiquiri, happily enjoyin the scenery Snow fall natural like a girl's virginity Erytime be like the first time Somethin like the last time, remindin you of your pasttime When things probably wasn't that great Robbin niggas for weights, spent your childhood upstate Couldn't escape the gun slingin, flower bringin Under the buildin callin yourself kingpinin Chorus (2x)
