RAY STEVENS lyrics

Mississippi Squrrel

Original and similar lyrics
Well when I was kid I'd take a trip every summer, down to Mississippi. To visit my granny in her ante bellum world. I'd run barefooted all day long, climbing trees free as a song. One day I happened catch myself a squirrel. I stuffed him down in an old shoebox, punched a couple holes in the top and when Sunday came, I snuck him into church. I was sittin way back in the very last pew showin him to my good buddy Hugh, when that squirrel got loose and went totally berserk! Well what happened next is hard to tell. Some thought it was heaven others thought it was hell. But the fact that something was among us was plain to see. As the choir sang I Surrender All the squirrel ran up Harv Newlan's coveralls harv leaped to his feet anmd said, 'Somethin's got a hold on me!' YEOW The day the squirrel went berserk. In the First Self-Righteous Church Of that sleepy little town of Pascagoula. It was a fight for survival, that broke out in revival. They were jumpin pews and shouting Halelujah! Well Harv hit the isles dancin and screamin some thought he had religion others thought he had a demon Harv thought he had a weed eater loose in his fruit of the looms. He fell to his knees to plead and beg, and that squirrel ran out of his britches leg, unobserved to the other side of the room. All the way down to the Amen pew where sat Sister Bertha better than you Who had been watching all the commotion with sadistic glee. You should've seen the look in her eyes when that squirrel jumped her garters and crossed her thighs. she jumped to her feet and said, 'Lord have mercy on me!' As the squirrel made laps inside her dress, she began to cry and then to confess to sins that would make a sailor blush with shame. She told of gossip and church disention, but the thing that got the most attention is when she talked about her love life then she started naming names! The day the squirrel went berserk. In the First Self-Righteous Church Of that sleepy little town of Pascagoula. It was a fight for survival, that broke out in revival. They were jumpin pews and shouting Halelujah! Well seven deacons and the pastor got saved and 25,000 dollars got raised. And 50 volunteered for missions in the Congo on the spot. and even without and invitaion there were at least 500 rededications. And we ALL got rebaptised whether we needed it or not. Well you've heard the Bible stories I guess of how he parted the waters for Moses to pass. All th miracles God has brought to this l' world. But the one I'll remember to my dyin day is how he put that church back on the narrow way with a half crazed Mississippi Squirrel The day the squirrel went berserk. In the First Self-Righteous Church Of that sleepy little town of Pascagoula. It was a fight for survival, that broke out in revival. They were jumpin pews and shouting Halelujah!

K-OS "Atlantis: Hymns For Disco"
Wake up in the morning, press the Colgate Brush my teeth, then I'm hitting the streets to meditate Went outside, and the sky was rather grey But I paid no attention kept moving upon my way Went down the block, and skanked a little further When this kid came up, he said what's up with MC Murdah? That was then son, this is now I live in the moment like a why to a how Wow, that's profound, just break that down That's when I proceeded to show him the pro to the noun I found instead of trying to be what I was I be what I is which makes us the wizard of us Plus I'm really sick and tired of complaints Of hip hop this, rap that and what it ain't I'd rather do a dance, find some romance Or pray to my father in heaven to get a chance He glanced down and looked rather disappointed But then he looked up and looked up and looked ra-rather anointed He said, "MC Murdah, they wait for the man And the master of the ceremony that was unplanned" Damn, you quit pit you know Plus I grab microphones from here to Gadow I keep my mind still like the art of tablow And no matter what they say I go on with the show We laughed, and gave each other a pound Exchanged numbers, I said kid see you around Continued with my stroll for that lazy afternoon But then out from the sky I heard a great big boom Eh, yo, I couldn't tell you why But purple rain straight started falling from the sky I started to cry, I thought it a lie I prayed for my mother oh me oh my You should of seen the people jumping and crying and screaming Believing the seasons was changing; the rain was the pain of the nature And running and coming and going and low and beholding And wishing the sun was golden and hoping it wasn't over Damn, now people to this day can't tell you what I saw It was raw; it broke every mortal thought, every law Yo, in awe I was, a buzz, then a light, and it said to me right "We be them rap kids from galaxies a far And it seems that maybe your rhymes are up to par So if you want to live on within this universe You have to kick a dope verse, and don't curse" Oh hey well what do you know? My life came down to how well I could really flow So I thanked god for this magna stage And dropped that rhyme on the corner and it went this way: I take it to the limit infinite, I been it committed to finish I did it and if they bit it I heavy hitted to get it This record of water is sort of the slaughter of mortal thoughts It borders on orders and can't be thought of the "bought by cash" K dash, fly from going to last, what is the task you ask And what alien form is this man talking Is he human or Vulcan, escaping or stalking, Or walking away from the rhyme by sledding down white hills of snow Tobogganing canadiana, my granny Georgiana, my brother stays in Atlanta I rock over cabanas of intellectual manners, You get hit by the gamma rays sort of like David Banner Now the mind is a terrible thing to waste Even worse is the great void of infinite space That extends beyond time Beyond all math Your watch can only measure the second that just passed but That doesn't matter; I'm just a B-Boy That gets mad excited when the crowd makes [sound of crowd noise]

I gotta call the bitch but yeah, Flex see that I'm focused Droppin bombs like I did to get rid of the roaches Feels good bein Puerto Rican from the pro-jects And countries overseas havin a ball like my cojones This summer I did well settin up for oh-eleven Comin up on a year my granny said hello to Heaven My moms still goin through it, e'ry now and then she cries I'm tryin to bring a different set of tears into her eyes "Free Agent" is FIRE! The world gon' see it's tough I'ma drop the "Yaowa" mixtape with Green to heat it up Shout to ICU, the documentary is nuts Some people on there gone, a lot of memories, but yup Gotta keep it pushin though the ride gets bumpy I'ma keep whippin until I get money Hate to be so blunt, but I came up extra poor Borrowed from next door, couldn't get ketchup from the store The butt of all the jokes cause of the rejects that I wore Matching perfectly with all the V-necks that I tore But nope, not no more, my feet keep the sickest kicks Still doin V-necks but nowadays my shit is crisp I'm comin for the title boys, hope you niggaz rhyme I'm treatin this like high school, "A" game every time Let you niggaz party, go on vaca', I'ma grind 'Til e'ry verse I kick is like Pele in his prime Y'all don't want a war, be screamin mayday with a nine Your thought caliber's no MATCH for this AK in my mind Don't get clapped, like sex with a dirty slut When I'm done with rap, they gon' hang your boy jersey up Cause I done been an all-star on all bars My dad left, and the apple never falls far So I'm gone like a sports car Anyone who think they better is just +Wild+, Draw Four card I did this by myself, no help brother No more sag, I'm comin for that belt fuckers Said my prayers, and God called Joell's number So stay tuned in the Fall, "Farewell Summer"

Nineteen

Buck O Nine
Not long ago there was a time when everything would blow my mind. Then I learn a bit more, it cancelled everything I learned before. I say hey (hey), I don't know what I'm doin'. I should have planned on my class reunion. I been workin' on my vision and clarity. This is how it was meant for me. Well anything is possible. Anything and everything is possible to me. When I was nineteen I thought I'd seen everything I was gonna see. Then I see a bit more, it cancelled everything I seen before. I say hey (hey), I thought I knew it all. I'm settin' up for a hell of a fall. Writin' down my philosophy songs, there's one that still holds strong. Well anything is possible. Anything and everything is possible to me. With every day that goes by the less and less I wonder why. Cause I seen 'em rise and I seen 'em fall. But I'll never claim to have seen it all. I say hey (hey), I ain't seen a thing. You never know what tomorrow will bring. I been workin' on my state of mind. Brace yourself for the ride. Cause anything is possible. Anything and everything is possible to me.

Deja Vu

Off By One
Well I've been here once before And I'm breaking down the door To everything I knew Breath and count to 10 I know exactly when and What you're gonna do Well I thought that I could see, Into the future foolish me If you were a book I've read it If you were a word I've said it If you were a song I've sung it For all that you are I've done it If you are a dream I've dreamt it This letter I write I've sent it I know anything and everything about you Living here trapped in this déjà vu Well I've been here once before Some how I am sure That everything you do You did it yesterday In some other ways you Carbon copied you Well I, I thought that I could see, Into the future foolish me Chorus: I can't believe that I'm trapped here with you It's like déjà vu your voodoo is taboo You're too much stress for me, compressin me Ha! You can't get the best of me So why do I stop and why do I go So why is my temptation spun out of control Don't sit there and act like you know me You owe me if only this is the end of our psychotic story LEAVE I don't know why I'm here Me and its never been clear Yesterday, today and tomorrow its all the same Just leave me ALONE Well I, I thought that I could see, Into the future foolish me If you were a book I've read it If you were a word I've said it If you were a song I've sung it For all that you are I've done it If you are a dream I've dreamt it This letter I write I've sent it I know anything and everything about you Living here trapped in this déjà vu
