Rock Steady Intro
(G.Stefani, T.Kanal)

A real love survives a rock steady vibe
A real love survives a rock steady vibe

 

 


Hella Good
(G.Stefani, P.Williams, C.Hugo, T.Kanal)

The waves keep on crashing on me for some reason
But your love keeps on coming like a thunderbolt
Come here a little closer
'Cause I wanna see you, baby, real close up
(Get over here)

You got me feeling hella good
So let's just keep on dancing
You hold me like you should
So I'm gonna keep on dancing

A performance deserving of standing ovations
And who would have thought it'd be the two of us
So don't wake me if I'm dreaming
'Cause I'm in the mood come on and give it up

You got me feeling hella good
So let's just keep on dancing
You hold me like you should
So I'm gonna keep on dancing
You got me feeling hella good
So let's just keep on dancing
You hold me like you should
So I'm gonna keep on dancing

Ooh yeah yeah
Ooh yeah yeah

You got me feeling hella good
So let's just keep on dancing
You hold me like you should
So I'm gonna keep on dancing
You got me feeling hella good
So let's just keep on dancing
You hold me like you should
So I'm gonna keep on dancing

Keep on dancing
Keep on dancing


 



Hey Baby
(G. Stefani. T. Kanal, T. Dumont, R. Price)

I'm the kinda girl that hangs with the guys
Like a fly on the wall with my secret eyes
Takin it in, tryin to be feminine
With my makeup bag watchin all the sin
Misfit, I sit
Lit up, wicked
Everybody else around or by the girls
With the tank tops and the flirty ways

I'm just sippin on chamomile
Watching boys and girls and their sex appeal
With a stranger in the face who says he knows my mom
And went to my high school

(Chorus)
All the boys say,
Hey Baby, Hey Baby, Hey
Girls Say, Girls Say,
Hey Baby, Hey Baby, Hey Hey Baby Baby
Hey Baby, Hey Baby, Hey
Boys Say, Boys Say
Hey Baby, Hey Baby, Hey
All the boys get the girls in the back

I'm the one they feed upon
Give a bit a star is born
And if you had enough you'll get the pass
And you can tell your friends how you made a bag
No matter what they say I'm still the same
Somehow everybody knows my name
And all the girls wanna get with the boys
And the boys really like it

Chorus

(Bounty Killer:)
Check it out, it's Bounty Killer, No Doubt

Jump on the stage makes me goin crazy
Afterwards myself in one of them gorgeous ladies
There is no need to be actin shady
C'mon baby, hey hey baby (x2)

When you rock your lips you know that - it amaze me
Caught me off the hook and nothing else don't phase me
Try to be my one and only sunshine baby
No if, no maybe, Hey Baby

(Gwen:)
I'm just sippin on chamomile
Watching boys and girls and their sex appeal
With a stranger in the face who says he knows my mom
And went to my high school

Chorus (x2 with some Bounty Killer parts in it)


 



Making Out
(G.Stefani, T.Kanal, T.Dumont )

Yeah...

I'm on the second floor with a lock on my door
I'm looking at a picture of your face
The last time I looked you were looking really good
But somehow pictures fade

We're on the phone, we're all alone
But that just ain't good enough
I go around the world to see your face
'Cause this just ain’t good enough

So I'm just kicking it
I'm counting the days
I hardly can wait for us to hang out
I'm really missing it in so many ways
I anticipate us making out

(Here comes another one)

Sip my morning tea but you're not next to me
Here goes another day
I'm driving in my car
I wonder how you are
When our favorite music plays

And there are flowers arrive to my surprise
But that just ain’t good enough
And I got the note, it gave me hope
But that just ain’t good enough

So I'm just kicking it
I'm counting the days
I hardly can wait
For us to hang out
I'm really missing it in so many ways
I anticipate us making out
(Repeat)

Yeah...

Ooh oohh
Ooh oohh
Ooh oohh

Soon you'll be here with me (making out...)
Soon you'll be right here with me

I'm with my friends 'till the night ends
But that just ain't good enough
And honestly you can trust me
But that just ain't good enough

So I'm just kicking it
I'm counting the days
I hardly can wait for us to hang out
I'm really missing it in so many ways
I anticipate us making out
(Repeat twice)

 



Underneath It All
(G.Stefani, D.Stewart)

There's times where I want something more
Someone more like me
There's times when this dress rehearsal
Seems incomplete

But you see the colors in me like no one else
And behind your dark glasses you're...
You're something else

Chorus:
You're really lovely
Underneath it all
You want to love me
Underneath it all
I'm really lucky
Underneath it all
You're really lovely

You know some real bad tricks
And you need some discipline
But, lately you've been trying real hard
And giving me your best
And, you give me the most gorgeous sleep
That I've ever had
And when it's really bad
I guess it's not that bad

(Repeat Chorus)

So many moons that we have seen
Stumbling back next to me
I've seen right through and underneath
And you make me better
I've seen right through and underneath
And you make me better
Better... better...

Lady Saw:
You are my real Prince Charmin'
Like the heat from the fire
You were always burnin'
And each time you're around
My body keeps stalin'
For your touch
Your kisses and your sweet romancin'
There's an underside to you
That so many adore
Aside from your temper
Everything else secure
You're good for me, baby
Oh that, I'm sure
Over and over again
I want more

Gwen:
You've used up all your coupons
And all you've got left is me
And somehow I'm full of forgiveness
I guess it's meant to be

(Repeat Chorus)

You're really lovely
Underneath it all
You want to love me
Underneath it all
I'm really lovely
Underneath it all
And you're really lovely


 



Detective
(G.Stefani, T.Kanal, T.Dumont)

Peek in, sneak about
peek in, sneak about
your broken hearted detective

hey girl save the liar
can’t you see his pants on fire
hey girl, save the liar
can’t you see his pants on fire

my back it hurts again
it aches like history
Cottonmouth and all lit up
your smiling back at me, but

I feel you must have failed me
once again you've let me down
my confidence below my knees now
I need to find you out

Chorus:
Peek in, sneak about
I’m gonna snoop and call you out
I’ve caught you, you’re hands are red
Now I’m your broken hearted detective

Hey, hey hey

Hey lover why the gun?
Hold on I’m almost there
It’s too late you’ve killed the trust
Don’t act so unaware

Why are you so destructive?
Do you realize what you’ve done?
you can’t bring it back to life now
What are you running from?

Chorus

I don’t like the way it feels
I just want you to be real

Hey girl, save the liar
Can’t you see his pants on fire?
Hey girl, save the liar
Can’t you see his pants on fire?
I’m rummaging through your closet
Imagining all the worst thoughts

Chorus x2

Peek in, peek in
Peek in, peek in
Peek in, sneak about
I’m gonna snoop and call you out
I’ve caught you, you’re hands are red
Now I’m you’re brokenhearted detective


 



DON'T LET ME DOWN
(G.Stefani, T.Kanal, T.Dumont)

Laughing so hard
I got tears in my eyes
Walk in the park
Under sapphire skies

Oh, I canít believe that youíre still around
Almost forgot how you let me down

Crying so deep
That I think I might die
Your mistakes I keep in the back of my mind
So hard to let go but I come in mind
The scars are still fragile
Donít let me down

CHORUS:
So donít blow
No not a little bit
ĎCause now youíre all mine
Donít you forget it
Donít blow it
Even a little bit
ĎCause now youíre all mine
Donít you forget it

X3
(Donít let me down)

Time after time
Itís just too much to take
Iíve waited so long
Just to get to this place
And finally it feels like
The lost was found
You got me filled up now
Donít let me down

(Donít let me down)

CHORUS x2:
So donít blow
No not a little bit
ĎCause now youíre all mine
Donít you forget it
Donít blow it
Even a little bit
ĎCause now youíre all mine
Donít you forget it

CHORUS x2:
So donít blow
No not a little bit
ĎCause now youíre all mine
Donít you forget it
Donít blow it
Even a little bit
ĎCause now youíre all mine
Donít you forget it

Donít let me down
Donít let me down
Donít let me down


 

 


Start the Fire
(G.Stefani, T.Kanal, T.Dumont)

c'mon baby get the lighter
we're gonna start the fire

the army of words is in me
silent the soldier weeps
lying here back to back
waiting for you to be react

Sometimes all I need is a good push
roll over and whisper some goodness
go on baby you be the hero
now can we go back to zero

Chorus:
go on and get the lighter
we're gonna need some fire
let's get a little higher
the battlefield is tired
nevermind all that
go on baby and get the lighter
we're gonna start the fire

just come here and cuddle up
I feel a little rough
I missed you in my sleep
are you still mad at me?

the moon must have mended my bad mood
come kiss me the way you're meant to
last night I was just playing
let's put it all away and

Repeat chorus

go on baby and get the lighter
we're gonna start the fire
go on baby and get the lighter
we're gonna start the fire

climb in, love with me
Climb in and love me
go on now baby you get it

had quite a heavy night
so delicate our love and pride
the most stubborn girl around
you really know how to bring me down
one more famous night to remember
let’s laugh at my silly temper
now let's burn the morning sweetly
get over here and complete me

repeat chorus

go on now baby you get it


 

 


Running
(G.Stefani, T.Kanal)

Run
Running all the time
Running to the future
with you right by my side

Me
I’m the one you chose
out of all the people
you wanted me the most
I’m so sorry that I’ve fallen
help me up, lets keep on running
don’t let me fall out of love

Chorus:
running, running
as fast as we can
I really hope you make it
(do you think we'll make it?)
we're running
keep holding my hand
it's so we don't get separated

Be
be the one I need
be the one I trust most
don’t stop inspiring me
sometimes it's hard to keep on running
we work so much to keep it going
don’t make me want to give up

repeat chorus twice

(the future…)

repeat chorus


 

 


In My Head
(G.Stefani, T.Kanal, T.Dumont)

I try to think about rainbows
when it gets bad
you got to think about something
to keep from going mad
I tried to think about big fat roses
when the ship starts going down
but my head is wicked jealous
don't want to talk about it right now

Chorus:
long distance
don't talk about ex-girlfriends
don't talk about you without me
don't talk about your past

in my head
it's only in my head
in my head
it's only in my head

there’s just something about you
that gets me in a twist
and sometimes I think
that cupid is just taking a piss
it only takes one word or idea
to send me in real deep
so if you think you're clever
use the right words when you talk to me

repeat chorus

in my head
it's only in my head
in my head
it's only in my head

I really think I have a problem
I really can’t control myself
why do I get so suspicious?
do you want someone else?

cause everybody wants everybody else
everybody wants everybody else
everybody wants everybody else

only in my head
it's only my head

in my head
it's only in my head
in my head
it's only in my head

repeat chorus

lets talk about the future
lets talk about the wedding
lets talk about Gwen Stefani
let's talk about how much you like me
and all that

 

 


Platinum Blonde Life
(G.Stefani, T.Kanal, T.Dumont)

I'm closing all the curtains
so don’t you even bother
and they're calling out the murder
but I’m underneath the covers
but who’s fooling who
with this mood like a train
watch me roll over
get out of my way

Chorus:
and there’s a knock on my door
but I'm not gonna open it
I'm gonna close my eyes
and maybe it will go away

I want a platinum blonde life
so I keep bleaching out the colors
I try to do what I oughta
but never drink enough water
where did my lamb go?
I wish she could stay
I feel it's empty as a widow
I'm gonna sleep it all away

repeat chorus

I'm gonna sleep all trough the day
I'm gonna asleep my life away
I'm gonna sleep all through the day
I'm gonna sleep myself away
I'm gonna close my eyes and maybe it'll go away

repeat chorus

I'm gonna close my eyes and maybe it will go away


 

 


Waiting Room
( G.Stefani, T.Kanal, T.Dumont, TAFKAP / Prince)

I sign in my name
I guess I have to wait a while
I wanna play this game
Call me up if you know how to dial

You always had my number
You need to be my lover
Humiliation
I'm in the waiting room

Chorus:
If we both want the love
And I wait long enough
Then the ground that we're on might be common
All I can do is wait for you
All I can do is wait for you
I'm all alone in the waiting room
I'm all alone in the waiting room

When you burning solitude
It can get real thick
Desire is your only food
It can get you sick
You know you're so fine
I'm over here standing in this line
Just waiting in the waiting room

(Repeat Chorus)

While I'm in the waiting room
A thousand thoughts I think of you
Whatever you did has got me glued
It's icky, it's sticky, ooh

You're the one I'm dreaming of
Why does this feel like wasted time?
What a price this traveling love?
You and me trapped between these lines
Ooh, you're so mine

(Repeat Chorus)

All I can do is wait for you (I'm just waiting for you)
All I can do is wait for you (You know you want me)
All I can do is wait for you (You always had my number)
All I can do is wait for you (You know you need to be my lover)
All I can do is wait for you
All I can do is wait for you

Wait for you. Wait for... Why are you making me wait?
I'm all alone in the waiting room (Repeated 5 times)

Will you call me when it's my turn?


 

 


Rock Steady
(G.Stefani, T.Kanal)

Our love is rock steady
rock steady, rock steady
our love is rock steady

Love is like a punishment
Homegirl here to represent
So innocently you seem to come my way
While Tinkerbell and Cupid play
they sit there and they laugh
I sit here and I can’t believe my eyes
You found me at last
but we're too human to see the way we'll agonize

A real love survives a rock steady vibe
A real love survives a rock steady vibe
rock steady, rock steady
our love is so rock steady
rock steady

Steady how stop rocking it
its a delicate environment
Retired but sleeping is our shanty love
Be careful now don’t wake it up
it's never gonna last
it’s never gonna make it back alive
so how can we relax?
I really hope that we will actually survive

a real love survives a rock steady vibe
a real love survives a rock steady vibe

it's never gonna last
it's never gonna makes it back alive
so how can we relax
I really hope that we will actually survive

a real love survives a rock steady vibe
a real love survives a rock steady vibe

rock steady
our love is so rock steady
rock steady, rock steady
