CHORUS Tell her goodbye FADE Please Tell her goodbye


DEBBIE GIBSON "Body Mind Soul"
VERSE1: Darlin', I was hoping that we could pretend And make believe that we could still live happily And start again Seems like you and I, we've caught up in your world of lies I kept believing you could start anew And be a friend Well I've got something I wanted to tell you And it's the last thing I wanted to say But I think I must go there anyway... CHORUS: Goodbye How do you say goodbye? Do I just look you in the eye, Shake your hand, wish you well After all this time... I never wanted for goodbye VERSE2: Don't let go I was devoted to your heart and soul And then we took a turn And I had to learn What I tried not to know Seems like yesterday I'd give the world just to hear you say A simple whisper of a word or two Like I love you Breaks my heart to see it end this way CHORUS BRIDGE: Goodbye Can it ever be the same? Goodbye Did we lose more than we gained? There's nowhere to hide Baby I feel it inside As my heart cries out your name Goodbye...

Odd Job Man

HARRY CHAPIN "Legends of the Lost Found"
Chorus: I give part time help I'm the odd job man I can't do what I want So I do what I can And I'll tell you now So that you will understand You get just what you pay for from the odd job man One day this dude drives in the station And I slide out to the pump And he says, I need some odd jobs done Can you get off from this dump? Well I can always use some extra bread So I nod and take the job When he says Clean up before you come I do not hire slobs Now you can see I'm not no fancy pants But everyone has pride And especially since this lovely lady's Sittin' by his side Still something keeps my trap shut And I nod again Alright And he gooses his Mercedes And he squeals off in the night Chorus Well I find his place next morning It's more a palace than a pad And it kind of makes my pick-up truck Start looking pretty bad But the same lady swings the door back And before one word is said She leads me to his trophy room Where he sits with his stuffed heads He's got this list of jobs for me to do While he's out of town And he says I'm too damn busy boy The way I move around Well I start to figure prices when he says It's time you learned, When you're dealing with a gentleman You get just what you earn Chorus I set to work that weekend And I'm fixin' up some stairs When I feel that someone's watching me And I see SHE'S standing there And she says I like to watch you work You have such supple hands She says Can I help you? and I say Baby you CAN !! Well she looks me in the eyes boys I admit I looked a little lower That's when she starts breathing faster And I start working slower You see when you have a helper With her attitude and grace You start puttin' lots of extra hours Workin' 'round the place Chorus Well a month had too soon come and gone With my odd jobs all done When who should pull up to the pump But the long-lost prodigal son And he says Here's a hundred dollars boy Pulls the bill off from his wad And he starts to hand it over Like a gift come straight from God! I say That's just a buck an hour sir ! He says That's what I pay for jerks Now I admit that almost blew my cool But I staggered back to work You see most times when it's said and done There's justice to this life 'Cause what that man had done to me I'd done to his wife! Chorus

Mother Mantis Bloom

Donny Brook
The star focused Lenses on orchids Black mantra Bonds the mantis To my friends Teach me how to swing So I can take out trash like you The dragon snowed on your summer Wild fires bloom Where your gardens used to grow I'll shed a tear for your mother For she won't know Batting lashes Sift your ashes Searching for the key Purring for the seed And your little red wagon Throws it's temper tantrums And give praises to your dreams Teach me how to swing so I can ramble on with you(repeat chorus) Your garden's burn in snow Tell my mother that I am dead, I am dead I'll be the sailing the ocean till the water is not such a dark shade of red And when the Caiman Island spread There's no way out brothers No exit(3x) (repeat #2 chorus 2x)

Ultimate Shutdown

DO OR DIE "Heads Or Tails"
[Featuring Scarface] (Chorus x 2) Who am I? Scar mother fucking face Who am I? A to the mother fucking K Who am I? Belo mother fucking Zero Who am I? Niggas Ain't Ready to Die (Scarface) Who the fuck am I? A born killer with no conscience Leaving niggas with holes in their heads unconscience No second chances Cos in this game no one advances You made your move and fucked up now the devil dances No scrilla for this just murderers with blocks To run up on their dick and hit em and get em hot With a 357 slug pointed at your nose Left a bloody mess and a note stuck between your toes You fuck with me nigga you're fucking with the warrior Anybody destroying you're packing the sig sauer Putting niggas off in body bags cos in this game you take no prisoners Leave it in blood Hare Krishna Nobody's breathing niggas stuck on getting even You die this evening insanity gon be my reason I trail niggas fill niggas and kill niggas I introduce the ways that are wicked to real niggas (Chorus x 2) (AK) Who ever epitomise And idolise my murderous skills With this vivid imagination and slugs that kill Off in the zone unorthodox with the world on blocks It's unexplainable how I got these bitch niggas locked Keep my eyes on my safe and keep this murderous flavour Since I picked up a strap I've had this murderous behaviour Spread the whole clip around and get the fuck outta Dodge I got a ride full of straps in my homies backyard It's too cold to proceed without a block to start Watch a gat blows him apart as the bullets depart Now who the fuck am I? Is the question you ask Can't be touched or fucked with is all you need to know It's 1998 plus you bitches got to go And y'all cain't fuck with me and tell em why My adrenaline rush on jump Plus you got my arm beneath grabbing with the double barrel pump (Chorus x 2) (Belo) I hear some niggas talking loud like we been stealing this shit Just say you hate me cock the bullshit don't you grip on my dick It's Belo Zero mother fuckers same sick ass nut Drink a brew and smoke some weed and blow your bitch ass up I put in work so recognise I carry my shit on my chest More respect and I neglect to come up back with the vest I never seen a thousand soldiers hit the dirt on your roll Fuck your chief and all the soldiers I'm a king on my own I'm coming with force down with Big Chief nigga Rapalot style Grip sixteens and triple beams will leave that ass on the pile Walk on down and see the light cos I'm not faking the shit I told you once that I'm a soldier I'm just taking your shit Now who am I a born killer nigga fuck what you heard I'm too delirious and serious I ain't like a nerd Fuck around and call the coroner dig your whole ass up Separate your head from the spam and leave your bitch ass stuck Nigga... (Chorus x 2) (N.A.R.D) Retaliation is a must I see niggas from behind so I bust My Desert Eagles gon to catch you when they duck Now what the purpose when they still gon get struck And leave they brains fucked up I don't know why they put they eyes on me Cos I'm a black material killer trying to keep it low key Now what it was they probably didn't know it was me But that goes to show em that fancy bitches focus just be They want to look up on my Rolex while I spot on my heat They see my Lexus car shining when I been on the streets With no ticket on it but still they try to find out what's in it It's a black nigga with a black chrome on the seat In the dark zone it's on And hell yeah I used to push packs Taking niggas straps and pimping bitches in 'lacs Matter of fact this shit I rap about I did before See it ain't no studio mother fucker just stepping through these doors (Chorus x 2) We can't be fucked with we can't be touched Cos the drama that we bring is just too much it's just too much Do Or Die Do Or Die Cos the drama that we bring is just too much it's just too much
