Standing On The Top

Original and similar lyrics
Yi yi yi, yi yi yi yi When you're on the top There's no place You can really go But down, down, down People on the street Congratulate you They say they love the way You sound, well When you're on the low No one wants to chit or chat Or even know your name Your agent's never there Your manager has ripped you off And gone somewhere Standing on the top Standin' on the top, top On the top gettin' down, yeah Standin' on the top, yeah, top On the top gettin' down [Temptations sing:] Standin' on the top Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh Standin' on the top Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh When you're on the top Everyone you meet they Wanna be your Long lost friend They say how great you are A superstar but do you Have any money to lend (Hey, man, can you loan me a few bucks?) When you're on the low Where do all the freaks And fancy people go I don't know (I don't know) People sit and stare Askin' crazy questions Do you braid your hair (And what's L-7 Square) Standin' on the top, top On the top gettin' down, yeah Standin' on the top, top On the top gettin' down, ho Standin' on the top, top On the top gettin' down, yeah Standin' on the top, top On the top gettin' down Down, down, down We understand it Can you understand it What I'm talkin' about When I say that funk Is here to stay We understand it If you understand it Sing it, yeah, yeah We understand it When I say that funk Is here to stay Funk is here to stay We want the funk We want the funk And nothin' else will do Nothin' else will do, no We want the funk Ooh, ooh, ooh We want it back Nothin' but the punk funk We want the funk, ooh We want the funk And nothin' but the funk We want the funk (We want the funk) I was sayin' that We want the funk We want the funk We want the funk And nothin' else But the funk will do We want the funk And nothin' else will do We want the funk We want the funk And nothin' else will do We want the funk And nothin' else will do We want the funk We want the funk And nothin' else will do We want the funk And nothin' else will do...

If Her Lovin' Don't Kill Me

JOHN ANDERSON "Easy Money"
She burns too hot, plays too rough She's got a dress full of dangerous stuff The way she looks, tears me apart, but the way she loves me nearly stops my heart If the lovin' don't kill me, don't put me six feet down, I'll be the last man standin' on the top of the hill If the lovin' don't kill me then nothin' will My doctor told me I looked kinda' ragged He said "What happened, John, did ya' fall off the wagon?" I said it ain't my drinking or my smokin', Doc, It's just that drop-dead woman rockin' me around the clock If the lovin' don't kill me, don't put me six feet down, I'll be the last man standin' on the top of the hill If the lovin' don't kill me then nothin' will Every night, she tears me up, she gives it good and I can't get enough And if the lovin' don't kill me; don't put me six feet down, I'll be the last man standin' on the top of the hill If the lovin' don't kill me then nothin' will If the lovin' don't kill me, don't put me six feet down, I'll be the last man standin' on the top of the hill If the lovin' don't kill me then nothin' will If the lovin' don't kill me, If the lovin' don't kill me; If the lovin' don't kill me Nothin' will, nothin' will If the lovin' don't kill me, nothin' will

Sunshine

JAKE MILLER "Rumors"
Will I see you again when I'm lost in the dark? Will you be there for me when I look at the stars? I drove by your house the other day I saw your mom packing up all your stuff in boxes She misses you, but I know she'll be okay She's staying strong, I guess that's all part of the process Your dad's a mess and I cry every time I see him Cause it reminds me of my dad, I couldn't imagine it That matching tattoo that you got with him a while back? He shows it off to everybody, he's so proud of it And he's so proud of you, I know you're happy now I know you're up there, every day I feel you shining down But now the only thing that's running through my head Are all the words that I wish I would've said Yeah, I wish I would've said Now the only thing that's running through my head Are all the words that I wish I would've said You're my fallen angel Why'd you go away? You're my fallen angel But I'll see you again someday And we will fly high, oh Yeah, fly high, oh Together We call you sunshine cause you were always such a ray of light I looked up to you and admired your outlook on life Remember that song we made together back in 12th grade? I pray to God that I rap again with you someday I wish you could see all of the people you've touched God, everything is different now, we miss you so much I'll never forget you, you'll always be in my heart When I'm lost, you'll be the light that I look to in the dark Cause the sun don't rise without sunshine Don't worry 'bout us, we'll be just fine No, the sun don't rise without sunshine Don't worry 'bout us, we'll be just fine You're my fallen angel Why'd you go away? You're my fallen angel And we'll see you again someday And we will fly high, oh Yeah, fly high, oh You're my fallen angel Why'd you go away? You're my fallen angel But I'll see you again someday And we will fly high, oh Yeah, fly high, oh Together Will I see you again when I'm lost in the dark? Will you be there for me when I look at the stars? Will I see you again when I'm lost in the dark? Will you be there for me when I look at the stars?
