Grandma Feather Bed

Original and similar lyrics
When I was a little bitty boy Just up off-a floor We used to go down to Grandma's house Every month end or so We had chicken pie and country ham And homemade butter on the bread But the best darn thing about Grandma's house Was her great big feather bed It was nine feet high and six feet wide Soft as a downy chick It was made from the feathers of forty 'leven geese Took a whole bolt of cloth for the tick It'd hold eight kids, four hound dogs And a piggy we stole from the shed We didn't get much sleep but we had a lot of fun On Grandma's feather bed After the supper we'd sit around the fire The old folks'd spit and chew Pa would talk about the farm and the war And my Granny'd sing a ballad or two I'd sit and listen and watch the fire Till the cobwebs filled my head Next thing I knew Id wake up in the morning In the middle of the old feather bed It was nine feet high and six feet wide Soft as a downy chick It was made from the feathers of forty'leven geese Took a whole bolt of cloth for the tick It'd hold eight kids, four hound dogs And a piggy we stole from the shed We didn't get much sleep but we had a lot of fun On Grandma's feather bed Well I love my Ma, an' I love my Pa Love Granny and Grandpa too Been fishing with my uncle, I wrestled with my cousin I even kissed Aunt Lou oooh But if ever had to make a choice I guess it ought to be said That I'd trade them all plus the gal down the road For Grandma's feather bed It was nine feet high and six feet wide Soft as a downy chick It was made from the feathers of forty'leven geese Took a whole bolt of cloth for the tick It'd hold eight kids, four hound dogs And a piggy we stole from the shed We didn't get much sleep but we had a lot of fun On Grandma's feather bed

Much More

JAE MILLZ "Property Of Potentness 2"
[Chorus: Love Ballad] Lovers come and then lovers go That's what folks say, don't they know They're not there, when you love me, hold me and say, okay And what we have is much more than they could see What we have is much more than they could see What we have is much more than they could see What we have is much more than they could see What we have is much more than they could see [Verse 1:] One of my uncles used to play throb in daylight around the house Noisy lil me always asking what that's about Then I had another uncle one that throw back David Ruffin, Marvyn Gaye and Bobby Womack But I was on the Joe and TV raps Soul trained and Apollo had my eyes attached And in junior high I got a black and white composition Booked up a year in the thoughts and start my mission Now I'm high school in the lunch room cypress Freshman with a cold flow got the lunch room on fire Fast forward to now, been on charge all around They can't believe I produced this conclude this dear music [Bridge: Love Ballad] Lovin' you gave me something new That I've never felt, never dreamed of Something's changed though it's not the Feeling I had before, oh, it's much much more [Verse 2:] As the late great Nate Dogg would say I smoke weed everyday Virgo to the bone till the day the lord end me But I swear I should've been born on 4 20 Shout out to the stoners, I mean all of them I might just say fuck rap and move to Oregon Might move to Seattle and open a dispensary Might move to Colorado and nobody hear from me People who don't know you don't get it But I don't expect them to get it cause You see we hold a special bond We take me beyond You should get pubbed for my songs They probably think I'm gone but When I'm stressed you take care of the pain So dear Mary Jane [Chorus: Love Ballad] Lovers come and then lovers go That's what folks say, don't they know They're not there, when you love me, hold me and say, okay And what we have is much more than they could see What we have is much more than they could see What we have is much more than they could see What we have is much more than they could see What we have is much more than they could see

You Were My Everything

AVIATION
[Talking:] This goes out to someone that was Once the most important person in my life I didn’t realize it at the time I can’t forgive myself for the way I treated you so I don’t really expect you to either It’s just... I don’t even know Just listen… You’re the one that I want, the one that I need The one that I gotta have just to succeed When I first saw you, I knew it was real I’m sorry about the pain I made you feel That wasn’t me; let me show you the way I looked for the sun, but it’s raining today I remember when I first looked into your eyes It was like God was there, heaven in the skies I wore a disguise 'cause I didn’t want to get hurt But I didn’t know I made everything worse You told me we were crazy in love But you didn’t care when push came to shove If you loved me as much as you said you did Then you wouldn’t have hurt me like I ain’t shit Now you pushed me away like you never even knew me I loved you with my heart, really and truly I guess you forgot about the times that we shared When I would run my fingers through your hair Late nights, just holding you in my arms I don’t know how I could do you so wrong I really wanna show you I really need to hold you I really wanna know you like no one else could know you You’re number one, always in my heart And now I can’t believe that our love is torn apart [Chorus:] I need you and I miss you and I want you and I love you ‘cause I wanna hold you, I wanna kiss you You were my everything And I really miss you [2x] I knew you gonna sit and play this with your new man And then sit and laugh as you’re holding his hand The thought of that just shatters my heart It breaks in my soul and it tears me apart At times we was off I was scared to show you Now I wanna hold you until I can’t hold you Without you, everything seems strange Your name is forever planted in my brain Damn it, I’m insane, Take away the pain Take away the hurt Baby, we can make it work What about when you Looked into my eyes Told me you loved me As you would hugged me I guess everything you said was a lie I think about it, it brings tears to my eyes Now I’m not even a thought in your mind I can see clearly, my love is not blind [Chorus:] I need you and I miss you and I want you and I love you ‘cause I wanna hold you, I wanna kiss you You were my everything And I really miss you [2x] [Talking:] I just wish everything could have turned out differently I had a special feeling about you I thought maybe you did too You would understand, but… No matter what, you’ll always be in my heart You’ll always be my baby Our first day, it seemed so magical I remember all the time that I had with you Remember when you first came to my house? You looked like an angel wearing that blouse We hit it off, I knew it was real But now I can’t take all the pain that I feel Reach in your heart, I know I’m still there I don’t wanna hear that you no longer care Remember the times? Remember when we kissed? I didn’t think you would ever do me like this I didn’t think you’d wanna see me depressed I thought you’d be there for me, this I confess You said you were my best friend, was that a lie? Now I’m nothing to you, you’re with another guy I tried, I tried, I tried, and I’m trying Now on the inside it feels like I’m dying [Chorus:] I need you and I miss you and I want you and I love you ‘cause I wanna hold you, I wanna kiss you You were my everything And I really miss you [2x] [Talking:] And I do miss you I just thought we were meant to be I guess now, we’ll never know The only thing I want is for you to be happy Whether it be with me, or without me I just want you to be happy

Love Comes And Goes

Ed O.G. Da Bulldogs
Love comes and goes (2X) I saw ya the day before your death before you took your last breath How many of my real niggaz are still left? A lot got killed and filled a wooden box and went out like ?docks? I can picture when you went down just like a ?becks? Here one day and gone the next We all make mistakes and these are the breaks but I'm sick and tired of goin to wakes and seein an end, to my friend So we kicked it to the L to get some brew and gin Nobody said nothin everyone was pissed as we got drunk and reminisced At your funeral, your head we kissed Didn't go to the burial, but you'll be missed That's if you didn't know, from your true friends and not your foes Cause love comes and goes Love, comes and goes (4X) Now my man, he never had no problems but he got killed, when niggaz tried to rob him Because they knew when they did it, they couldn't get away with it So they killed him, took the dough and split it Thinkin about the money, and not his four kids A couple got caught, and now they're doin bids Loot is worth more than a life, cause niggaz livin trife My man had four kids, and a wife Now the kids don't have a father and the wife don't have a husband because when, you did what you did the future of his kids may fall down... ... cause he ain't around I went to his funeral, thinkin maybe soon it will be me cause Boston got a lot of jealousy A lot of people just can't take it when another brother makes it When he makes it, that's when they wanna take it But there's one thing I know... ... love comes and goes Love, comes and goes (4X) The most I remember of you, is in the pictures You were my pops and I won't forget ya I wish you coulda been there, to see me grow up Come up like throw up, and blow up, as an entertainer I think you woulda been proud to see me at a show, and move the crowd Your best friend, shot you over five dollars, that ain't right The money mattered, and not the life I wonder what you woulda told me, to get a girl and lay her cause my moms told me you were a player They tell me I'm your spittin image, from the line of scrimmage but you was wild unlike my mother I'm timid God works in different ways and it shows And everybody knows love comes and goes Love, comes and goes (repeat to fade)
