Garden Song

Original and similar lyrics
(Mallett) Inch by inch, row by row, gonna make this garden grow. All it takes is a rake and a hoe and a piece of fertile ground. Inch by inch, row by row, Someone bless the seeds I sow. Someone warm them from below, 'til the rain comes tumbling down. Pulling weeds and picking stones, man is made of dreams and bones. Feel the need to grow my own 'cause the time is close at hand. Grain for grain, sun and rain, find my way in nature's chain, to my body and my brain to the music from the land. Plant your rows straight and long, thicker than with prayer and song. Mother Earth will make you strong if you give her love and care. Old crow watching hungrily, from his perch in yonder tree. In my garden I'm as free as that feathered thief up there. Inch by inch, row by row, gonna make this garden grow. All it takes is a rake and a hoe and a piece of fertile ground. Inch by inch, row by row, Someone bless the seeds I sow. Someone warm them from below, 'til the rain comes tumbling down.

RIP Whitney Houston God bless her soul I'm just vibin' doe But for you haters (Nothing's gonna stop me) I swear to God (Nothing's gonna stop me) Andi, Kiko, Renegades (Nothing's gonna stop me) (Nothing's gonna stop me) Money talks so what's your conversation? Counting my blesses, my sweet elaborated Being broke ain't a joke, that feeling is devastating Nightmare so that force never stated Calculating every dollar bill Reminiscin', they missin' like someone on a mill Still trippin', this life I'm livin' the dream still Look at my niggas loyalty's mad real That's cause we got this from the bottom up Number slidin' in my homie momma truck We did what we had to do, we ain't give a fuck Now we the niggas winnin' dog, wuddup? Ain't it funny how the time fly? Couple cars and a twenty story high rise Took a minute but shit connecting like wi fi It's fuck you to the niggas who sad my career died Shit, I'm livin' quite well On the beach I'm sippin' wine and cracking lobster tales With a Spanish mommy give me the opposite the tails Ask me do I like it, poppy I'm like hell yea We da best the fuckin' logo Just hope you get the picture when you take your photos Own a couple cars but I need one more though Felt I'm coming soon, real nigga YOLO True, I'm just rappin' doe aye Nothing's gonna stop me I tell 'em (nothing's gonna stop me) Yea, feel good when you comin' from nothin' homie But I tell 'er (othing's gonna stop me) Swear to God (nothing's gonna stop me) Starvation In the studio, watching the Grammy's homie Pray today they nominate the one and only Probly cry some tears at the ceremony Only lord knows when they ready for me Inspiration runnin' through my blood Motivated from the fact I made it through the mud Kept my faith although they doubted when I lost my buzz All over somethin' that I'm winnin' ain't gon show me love In the street label me underrated Story for respect my only ultimatum They ask me who that's why you goin' hard Cause I just want my mama off that boulevard I come from a city where there ain't many stars And given no pity promised them prison bars Teachers said I won't amount to shit Graduated high-school, college never in it Still I manage through seven figures with common sense And at the age of 52 my mama finally quit Fuck it right I never stop Found a way to motivate the niggas' block Whitney Houston died yesterday God bless 'er, hope she end up at them heaven gates Watching the Grammy's just as they dedicate In the mean time, let's let this marinate Yea, I'm just vibin' doe Oh yea (nothing's gonna stop me) Ain't nothin' gonna stop me man (Nothing's gonna stop me) R.I.P Trayvon Martin Justice will be served my brother But guess what (Nothing's gonna stop me) Oh yea man (nothing's gonna stop me) God bless Hood

One Piece At A Time

JOHNNY CASH "One Piece At A Time"
Well, I left Kentucky back in '49 An' went to Detroit workin' on a 'sembly line The first year they had me puttin' wheels on cadillacs Every day I'd watch them beauties roll by And sometimes I'd hang my head and cry 'Cause I always wanted me one that was long and black. One day I devised myself a plan That should be the envy of most any man I'd sneak it out of there in a lunchbox in my hand Now gettin' caught meant gettin' fired But I figured I'd have it all by the time I retired I'd have me a car worth at least a hundred grand. [CHORUS] I'd get it one piece at a time And it wouldn't cost me a dime You'll know it's me when I come through your town I'm gonna ride around in style I'm gonna drive everybody wild 'Cause I'll have the only one there is a round. So the very next day when I punched in With my big lunchbox and with help from my friends I left that day with a lunch box full of gears Now, I never considered myself a thief GM wouldn't miss just one little piece Especially if I strung it out over several years. The first day I got me a fuel pump And the next day I got me an engine and a trunk Then I got me a transmission and all of the chrome The little things I could get in my big lunchbox Like nuts, an' bolts, and all four shocks But the big stuff we snuck out in my buddy's mobile home. Now, up to now my plan went all right 'Til we tried to put it all together one night And that's when we noticed that something was definitely wrong. The transmission was a '53 And the motor turned out to be a '73 And when we tried to put in the bolts all the holes were gone. So we drilled it out so that it would fit And with a little bit of help with an A-daptor kit We had that engine runnin' just like a song Now the headlight' was another sight We had two on the left and one on the right But when we pulled out the switch all three of 'em come on. The back end looked kinda funny too But we put it together and when we got thru Well, that's when we noticed that we only had one tail-fin About that time my wife walked out And I could see in her eyes that she had her doubts But she opened the door and said "Honey, take me for a spin." So we drove up town just to get the tags And I headed her right on down main drag I could hear everybody laughin' for blocks around But up there at the court house they didn't laugh 'Cause to type it up it took the whole staff And when they got through the title weighed sixty pounds. [CHORUS] I got it one piece at a time And it didn't cost me a dime You'll know it's me when I come through your town I'm gonna ride around in style I'm gonna drive everybody wild 'Cause I'll have the only one there is around. [Spoken] Ugh! Yow, RED RYDER This is the COTTON MOUTH In the PSYCHO-BILLY CADILLAC Come on Huh, This is the COTTON MOUTH And negatory on the cost of this mow-chine there RED RYDER You might say I went right up to the factory And picked it up, it's cheaper that way Ugh!, what model is it?

Love Builds A Garden

ELTON JOHN
You hear it every day Once upon a time they say Once upon a time in this place I looked and saw on your face A smile that spoke to me In oh so many ways The Sunday morning bells Rang out that all was well Sunshine across the yard We’d rest when we worked hard We take a little time off To appreciate the day And love builds a garden Grew it from the ground up Each one of us knowing Every inch of it was us We pulled it all together Hoping and believing That love built this garden For the two of us to dream in [instrumental] We’d get a little rain Then the sun came out again But a frost it’s hard to fight Once it takes hold flowers die There’s only so much you can do To keep some things alive And love builds a garden Grew it from the ground up Each one of us knowing Every inch of it was us We pulled it all together Hoping and believing That love built this garden For the two of us to dream in Sad to say, it’s true Without a lover who Cares as much Well I guess, I guess it goes to prove [instrumental] That love built a garden Growed it from the ground up Each one of you knowing Every inch of it is trust Pulled it all together Hoping and believing That love builds a garden For the two of you to dream in

A Better Tomorrow

WU-TANG CLAN "Wu-Tang Forever"
[Inspectah Deck] Yo, this goes for all my brothers and sisters locked down For all my peoples incarcerated, for those who ain't make it Yo, in the housing, thousands seen early graves Victims of wordly ways, memories stays engraved All my live brothers, is locked down with high numbers The young hunger, blind to these lies, they die younger In this New World the Order slaughter men, women, and children Ten feet gates surround the building keep us sealed in The projects, lifeless like a vietnam vet Constant war, sever threats of enemy conquest Crooked cops comb my building complex that's in the rumble Streets are like a jungle, can't let my cypher crumble Vivid thoughts, Devils resort to trick knowledge They kick garbage, lust for chicks and quick dollars I know the pain the game bring, I did the same thing Spaced out in the staircase, performing a sting It's hard to keep control, I bless those who seek a scroll Trying to reach a whole nation and break the sleeper hold Not a role model, I walk a hard road to follow I sold bottles of sorrow then chose poems and novels The gospel was told, some souls it swallowed whole Mentally they fold, and they eventually sold their life and times, deadly like the virus design but too, minute to dilute, the scientist mind You can't party your life away Drink your life away Smoke your life away Fuck your life away Dream your life away Scheme your life away Cause your seeds grow up the same way [Masta Killa] A voice cries from the wilderness of the North A representation of the families that lost one all victims of incarceration Or other divisions of the family structure Youths are injected with serums that leads to skin irritations, babies being born with disfigurations, experimentations On their faces there bear world relations of mothers that carry the pain of blood stained streets where sisters mourn and wail Fifth brothers been slain from hails of gun fire It lightly begins to rain screams of terror are hidden by the passing trains This can't be little Hussein, his uncle cried As he drops to his nephew's side, holding his cane Just give me a name, of who has inflicted this bitter sickness, and left us to witness [U-God] Yeah, yo Curses from war, innocent blood spills for days Soothe in godly ways, hands, solemn in praise Tree of life, more precious than Wu is golden game The wise self flourish inherit, Halls of Fame Crime visions in my blood got me, locked in prison While we die hard living people whine about religion, vision Blow, spin, and sin and killing what's revealing It's a never ending battle with no ending or beginning, listen Zero process, progress, become the hunted America's most wanted, good life flaunted, want it Some love the speed, some satisfy a need Some want to be down, young gun seed, jungle breed The strong must feed, someone die, someone bleed One flew astray, and then caught my little seed Can it be, the ice have us trife life, made me grab the knife The righteous man would be within these stripes pipes Take in my energy, breath and know the rest Cause the good die young and the hard die best You can't party your life away Drink your life away Smoke your life away Fuck your life away Dream your life away Scheme your life away Cause your seeds grow up the same way Cause your seeds grow up the same way Cause your seeds grow up the same way [RZA] Y'all bitches love dances, and pulling down your pants while your man's on tour, your spending up his advances Your friends ain't shit, all they do is drink, smoke, and suck dick The whole projects is trapped in stench You either high school drop-outs, one to three cop-outs Fifteen years old, shorty ass and top out Ninety-nine cent beer drinking pussy stinking Fucking so much your ass and titties start shrinking New World Order slave trade, minimum wage, Medicaid Can a devil fool a Muslim nowadays Inside my lab, I'm going mad Took two drags off the blunts, and started breaking down the flag The blue is for the Crips, the red is for the Bloods The whites for the cops, and the stars come from the clubs or the slugs that ignites, through the night, by the dawn Early light, why is sons fighting for the stripe [Method Man] As we dwell through this concrete hell, calling it home Mama say, take your time young man and build your own Don't wind up like your old dad Still searching for them glory days he never had So many bad want to scheme for American dream, no more kings The cash rule everything now, we going down These babies looking up to us, it's up to us The Million Man March MC's, get on the bus But envy, greed, lust, and hate, separate Though the devil mind state blood kin cannot relate No longer, brothers, we unstable Like Kane when he slew Abel, killing each other You can't party your life away Drink your life away Smoke your life away Fuck your life away Dream your life away Scheme your life away Cause your seeds grow up the same way Cause your seeds grow up the same way Cause your seeds grow up the same way

Sweat It Out

JIMMY BARNES "Heat"
Heat goes up and rain won't fall We've run so far it's time to crawl And we all forget each lesson learned We played with fire and now we'll all get burned Gonna have to sweat it out Can't ignore it or pass the blame While lovers walk in acid rain Feed the world was just a song They want to bleed the world and build a bomb Gonna have to sweat it out But how long will it take Til the message gets through to you A change is due, starting here with me and you Gonna have to sweat it out Gonna have to work it out And politicians, thieves and banks Together help us all walk the plank They offered us the very best Until our souls are repossessed If we're so sharp, how come we're falling apart We've been the fools We've kept on bending the rules Our rise and fall has taken no time at all For what it's worth the meek inherit the earth What's left behind just makes them angry and blind Too late to try, just kiss the whole world goodbye
