DEAR JOHN
(A. Meade)

My friend you're gone
Someday I hope we meet again
I look unto the left and then
I look unto the right
I see your faded figure
almost every single night
Is my imagination
playing tricks on me
But in my heart you see,
you will always be...

My friend, you're gone
Someday I hope
we meet again

You're singin' in a
band with a mic on
in your hand
That way that you
would sing really
made me feel all grand
You left your friends alone
right upon this earth
I wish that would've seen
how much life was worth

My friend, yeahhh, you're gone
Someday, someday, someday,
now I hope we meet again
Yeahhh I hope we meet again now
hey yeahh yeaah yeahh yeahhh yeahhhohhh

Well, Johnny made us laugh
but now he made us cry
It couldn't have been that bad
to make him want to die
Now it's too late
to find your destiny
I wish you would've
waited longer here with me
My friend yeaahh you're gone
Someday I hope we meet again
My friend you're gone
Someday someday someday
now I hope we meet again
I hope we meet again
John my friend hey yeah
I hope pleease yeah
I know we'll meet again
yeahhhh

I'm missing you my friend
I hope we meet again x2
Well I'm missing you my
friend well,
I hope we meet again x2
I'm missing you yeah hey
I hope we meet again

EL MATADOR
(E.Stefani)

Announcer:
Senors and senoritas, welcome to the most
anticipated bullfight in Spanish history!
Today, El Matador Ricardo will face El
Toro the bull - the fiercest meanest
beast in all of the land!

Matador:
El Matador as
the sweet smell of roses and the foul
smell of the bulls fills the air.
Today, El Toro faces Don Presarios...
El Toro the bull
of the
most beautiful woman
in all of Spain.

Chorus:
I am the matador,
and I must fight the bull!
For my honor,
and for my pride!
It is which I adore,
And it's so much more
than a job
It's what I live for,
it's just a way of life!

Rosalina:
Oh Ricardo,
don't you love me anymore?
You cannot fight the bull,
for he is fierce and mean
And he is merciless,
He will impale you
with his horns.
What about our lives together?

Chorus:
I am the matador,
and I must fight the bull!
For my honor, and for my pride!
It is which I adore,
And it's so much more
than a job
It's what I live for, it's
just a way of life!

Narrator:
The buzz of nervous
excitement fills the stadium,
As the tension mounts,
the crowd rises to their feet. (oh!)
The vendors walk the stands,
selling at the top of their lungs:
Popcorn! Peanuts! NACHOS!!!
The fight begins...

(Assorted Spanish yells)
Fight pause:

He's got it, he's got it,
he's got his pride.
He's got it, he's got it,
deep down inside
Because the matador,
he's got his pride
The matador,
deep down inside
The matador,
he's got his pride
The matador-----------
Come on, Fight! Fight! (x7)

Narrator:
It is over.
The fight is done.
But it is not the bull
that is the dead one,
Rosalina lies dead
of a broken heart
The bull and the matador
together part....
As I left that arena that day,
I was confused.
I saw the matador
and I asked him,
Why did you kill your fiancee?

Matador:
I must have done what
I have done because
today's fight was such a bore,
I needed to spark
up something more...

Chorus:
I am the matador, and I
must fight the bull!
For my honor, and
for my pride!
It is which I adore,
And it's so much
more than a job
It's what I live for,
it's just a way of life!
I am the matador! (x7)
I am the matador-e-or-e-or-e-or-e-or-e-or-e-or-e-or!

EVERYTHING'S WRONG
E. Stefani - J. Rosa

The bed is made, so is the cake
The frogs are swimming down in the lake
The chairs are stacked and the house is locked
The food is eaten and the boat is docked
The flowers are watered and the glass is filled
The chain is linked, the money's billed
The walls are painted and the bell has rang
What is wrong? Everything!

1, 2, 3, 4
Everything everything everything's wrong
Ever stop your bitchin and you want to go on
But if you look at me you laugh and you say
'Why just give me another thing, don't tell me this way'
Everything's wrong
Everything's wrong

Your hat is sewn, the clock is set
The toilet's flushed and the sponge is wet
The lights are on and your shoes are tied
My posters are up and my hair is dyed
The house is built and the records scratched
Your dishes are dirty and your pants are patched
The chrome is shiny and the juice tastes like tang

What is wrong? Everything!
That's all I say, I say no more
So please don't ask for an encore!

1, 2, 3, 4
Everything everything everything's wrong
Ever stop your bitchin and you want to go on
But if you look at me you laugh and you say
'Why just give me another thing, don't tell me this way'

Everything's wrong
Everything's wrong
Everything's wrong
Everything's wrong

GANGSTERS
The Specials

Why must you record my phone calls
Are you planning a bootleg LP
You said you've been threatened by gangsters
Now it's you that's threatening me
Can't fight corruption with con tricks
The youth, they love to commit crime
I dread, dread to think what the future will bring
When we're living in gangster times

Don't call me skaface
Don't interrupt while I'm talking
Or they'll confiscate all your guitars

A catch-22 says if I sing a tune
They will make me an overnight star
Don't offer a single protection
The youth, they love to commit crime
I dread to think what the future will bring
When we're living in real gangster times

GETTING STARTED
E. Stefani
Whoa, whoa, whoa,
whoa yeah, yeahhhheeeeee

We've only just got started
We've only just begun
Well, I'm left to complete
all the things that we need
to getting started

We're just getting started
An' when will
we start makin' progress?
And when will
they begin to help us?
I wasn't relaxed
from holding us back from getting started
We're just getting started. (x2)

Now where are we now?
Where do we belong?
Where are we going to?
And where are we now?
Where do we belong?
Why are there
so many things to do?
I started a job
I promised your dad. (?)
We're just starting.
We're just getting started. (x2)

An' when will we start making progress?
And when will they begin to help us?

I wasn't relaxed from holding us
back you think I'm a sham
but you're never smilin'
I wasn't relaxed from holding us
back from getting started
We're just getting started (x3)

And where are we now?
Where do we belong?
Where are we going to?

yeaheeeyeah
And where are we now?
Where do we belong?
Why are there
so many things to do?
I started a job
I promised your dad
We're just getting started
yeaheyah whoooohoooo

HEARTBREAKER
Pat Benatar

Your love is like a tidal wave
Spinnin' over my head
Drownin' me in your promises
Better left unsaid
You're the right kind of sinner
to release my inner fantasies
The invincible winner,
and you know that
you were born to be

You're a heartbreaker,
dreammaker Love-taker,
don't you mess around with me
You're a heartbreaker,
dreammaker Love-taker,
don't you mess around, no no no

Your love has set
my soul on fire
Burnin' outta control
You taught me
the ways of desire
Now it's takin' its toll

You're a heartbreaker,
dreammaker, love-taker,
don't you mess around with me
You're a heartbreaker, dreammaker,
love-taker heartbreaker!

I THROW MY TOYS AROUND
E. Costello, C. O' Riordan

I've got no time
for fairy stories
I'm not a little girl
So you can
leave me all alone
And turn off
the lights as well
If you are frightened
Then listen
But I don't think
you'd like it
Such a nice kid

Nobody's lookin' now
I'll throw my toys around

Somebody's being very bad
I wonder who it can be
Somebody's gonna get in trouble
I know it isn't me
I'm just a little angel
But you don't know what I've done
When your back's turned

Nobody's lookin' now
(nobody's lookin')
I'll throw my toys around
(with Elvis:)

Pick up those building blocks
Chop off the baby's locks
Swing dolly by the hair
Put down that teddy bear
Slam dunk a happy clown

I throw my toys around

I've got no time for bedtime stories
I'm not a little child
Everything makes me furious
And everything makes me wild
If you are frightened then whistle
And I'll come runnin' you
As you boo hoo

Nobody's lookin' now
(nobody's lookin')
I'll throw my toys around
Nobody's lookin' now
(nobody's lookin')
I'll throw my toys around

(Elvis -) I throw my toys around
(Gwen -) I'll throw my toys around
(Elvis -) I throw my toys around
(Gwen -) I'll throw my toys around
(Elvis -) I throw my toys around
(Gwen -) I'll throw my toys around
(Elvis -) I throw my toys around
(Gwen -) I'll throw my toys around
(Elvis -) I throw my toys around
(Gwen -) I'll throw my toys around

NEW
G.Stefani, T.Dumont

Don't let it go away
This feeling has got to stay
Don't let it go away
This feeling has got to stay
And I can't believe I've had this chance now
Don't let it go away
Yeah

New... you're so new
You... you're new
And I never had this taste in the past
New... you're so new

The normal hesitation is gone
And I really gravitate to your whim
Are you here to fetch me out?
'Cause I never had this taste in my mouth

Oh you're not old
And you're not familiar
Recently discovered
And I'm learning about you

New... you're so new
You... you're new

And you're consuming me violently
And you're ever shamelessly tempting me
Who sent this maniac
'Cause I never had this taste in my past

Oh you're different
You're different from the former
Like a fresh battery
I'm energized by you

Don't let it go away
This feeling has got to stay
Don't let it go away
This feeling has got to stay
And I can't believe I've had this chance now
Don't let it go away

Why am I so curious
This territory's dangerous
I'll probably end up at the start
I'll be back in line with my broken heart

New... you're so new
You... you're new
And I never had this taste in the past

Don't let it go away
This feeling has got to stay
Don't let it go away
This feeling has got to stay
And I can't believe I've had this chance now
Don't let it go away
And I can't believe it
Can't believe it
Can't believe it
Can't believe it
Don't let it go away
This feeling has got to stay
Don't let it go away

New... you're so new
New... you're so new

NO DOUBT
E. Stefani B. Palazzo

There's no doubt in my mind
That you're like the other kind
You try but you can't
Appear to be different

Chorus:

No Doubt!!
No Doubt!!
Yeahhh..(heh heh heh heh)
No Doubt!!
No Doubt!!

Heh heh heh heh heh heh,
Pick it up, say
Without a doubt yeahhh...
Without a doubt
The start of the night
Brings about
a different light
With the onslaught
of your friends
The new light
is shown again

No Doubt!!
No Doubt!!
Yeah.. No Doubt!!
No Doubt!!
(I said) No Doubt!!!
(Noooo Douuuubbbt!)
No Doubt!!

OB-LA-DI, OB-LA-DA
Lennon/McCartney

Desmond has a barrow
in the market place
Molly is
the singer in a band
Desmond says to Molly
"girl I like your face"
And Molly says this
as she takes him by the hand

Obladi oblada
life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on
Obladi Oblada
life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on

Desmond takes a trolly
to the jewellers stores
Buys a twenty carat golden ring
Takes it back to Molly
waiting at the door
And as he gives it to her
she begins to sing

Obladi oblada
life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on
Obladi Oblada
life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on

In a couple of years
they have built
A home sweet home
With a couple of kids
running in the yard
Of Desmond and Molly Jones
Happy ever after
in the market place
Molly lets the children
lend a hand
Desmond stays at home
and does his pretty face
And in the evening
she's a singer with the band

Obladi oblada
life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on
Obladi Oblada
life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on

In a couple of years
they have built
A home sweet home
With a couple of kids
running in the yard
Of Desmond and Molly Jones
Happy ever after
in the market place
Molly lets the children
lend a hand
Desmond stays at home
and does his pretty face
And in the evening
she's a singer with the band

Obladi oblada
life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on
Obladi Oblada
life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on
And if you want some fun
Take Obladiblada

OI TO THE WORLD
Joe Escalante

Haji was a punk
just like any other boy
And he never had no trouble
til he started up his Oi band
Safe in the garage
or singing in the tub
Till Haji went too far
and he plugged in at the pub
Twas a cold Christmas eve
when Trevor and the skins
Popped in for a pint
and to nick a back of crisps
Trevor liked the music
but not the Unity
He unwound Haji's turban
and he knocked him to his knees

If God came down
on Christmas Day
I know exactly
what He'd say
He'd say "Oi to the punks
and Oi to the skins-
But Oi to the world
and everybody wins!"

Haji was a bloody mess,
he ran out thru the crowd
he said "we'll meet again
we are bloody but not unbowed"
Trevor called his bluff
and told him where to meet
Christmas day on the roof
down at 20 Oxford street

If God came down on
Christmas Day
I know exactly
what He'd say
He'd say "Oi to the punks
and Oi to the skins-
But Oi to the world
and everybody wins!"

On the roof with
the nun chucks Trevor
broke a lot of bones
But Haji had a sword
like that guy
in Indiana Jones
Police sirens wailing,
a bloody dying man
Haji was alone
and abandoned by his band
Trevor was there fading
and still so full of hate
When the skins left him there
and went down the fire escape

Oi! Oi!

But then Haji saw
the north star shining
more then ever
So he made a tourniquet
from his turban saving Trevor
They repelled down the roof
with the rest of the turban
and went back to the pub
where they bought each other bourbon

If God came down on
Christmas Day
I know exactly
what He'd say
He'd say "Oi to the punks
and Oi to the skins-
But Oi to the world
and everybody wins!" x2

Oi! Oi!

SAILIN' ON
D. Jenifer, G. Miller

Ooh...

So I'm sailing,

Sail on sail on

That's the game,
game of strife everything
is all in stride

So I'm sailing,

Sail on sail on

Too many years

And too many days
with none to say
So how will we know
when there's nowhere to grow
The fact of life,
life too short oh
There's too many years
with too many tears
There's too many days
with none to say no no
So how will we know
when there's nowhere to grow

The fact of life,
the fact of life yeah
Too many years
with too many tears
And too many days
with none to say
So how will we know
when there's nowhere to grow
The fact of life,
life too short oh oh...

SAW RED
Bradley Nowell
LEGEND:
BRADLEY GWEN BOTH :

Girls don't go crazy
Woman,
hold your man tight
Every day I love him
just a little bit more
A little bit more,
a little bit more
Everyday I love him
just a little bit more
And he loves me the same
Every day I love her
just a little bit more
A little bit more,
little bit more
Everyday I love her
just a little bit more
And she loves me the same.

Baby if you wanna get on
Oh baby if you wanna get off
It makes no sense at all
I saw red
I saw red, I saw red
One more sacred lover that
I shot dead

Everyday I wake up
just a little bit more
Feelin' like a dog
out on the yard
Because that's
just how we are
Everyday I wonder
if it's over
When I wake up
realizin' that we hate
And break down the war You say it's black,
but I can't believe you
And if you say it's white,
you say
I'm tryin to deceive you
And baby you're the winner
of the high and the low
And I'd be waiting for you
in the middle but
I just lack control

Baby if you wanna get low
Oh baby if you wanna get high
It makes no sense at all
I saw red
I saw red, I saw red

One more sacred lover that
I shot dead
Girls, don't go crazy
Girls, don't go crazy
Oh girls, don't go crazy
When the men use you, oh
Oh, woman hold your man tight
If it makes you feel right
Iit's your own life

SHOWIN' OFF
J. McMahon - E. Stefani - J. Spence - G.Stefani

I drive in my dad's new car
This time I've gone too far
I did not know the price I'd pay
I smashed up his last years pay
I'm rappin'
with my so-called friends
Awaitin' for my commands
The lies are told,
they seem to know
So telling me
would be wrongly so

Chorus:

A different time,
a different place,
a different look,
a different face
(I'm showin' off)
(I'm showin' off)

It's all over
the deed is done
And that's
the price of my own fun
Took it for granted
the way I thought
And now my confidence
just can't be bought

Chorus:

A different time,
a different place,
a different look,
a different face
(I'm showin' off)
(I'm showin' off)
That's the way it looks
when you show off x5

SLIVER
Kurt Cobain

Mom and dad
went to a show
They dropped me off
at Grandpa Joe's
I kicked and screamed,
said please don't go

Grandma take me home,
Grandma take me home
Grandma take me home,
Grandma take me home

Had to eat
my dinner there
Mashed potatoes
and stuff like that
I couldn't chew
my meat too good
She said, well,
don't you start
your crying
Go outside
and ride your bike
That's what I did,
I killed my toe

After dinner,
I had ice cream
I fell asleep
and watched TV
I woke up
in my mother's arms
Grandma take me home
I wanna be alone

YOU CAN'T TEACH AN OL' DOG NEW TRICKS
E.Stefani

At the park you try to teach a dog a brand new trick
You take a ball and toss it far and then you say "go get it"
You know you can't teach an ol' dog new tricks
He only knows what he may
No you can't teach an ol' dog new tricks
He'll only curl his tail and run away
And so you try a new approach, you try to hold and cuddle it
You hope he'll learn it if you try again but he just don't get it
You can't teach an ol' dog new tricks
He only knows what he may
No you can't teach an ol' dog new tricks
He'll only curl his tail and run away

You can't teach an ol' dog new tricks
He only knows what he's trained
No you can't teach an ol' dog new tricks
Not even if you get down and beg
No you can't teach an ol' dog

Remember when you saw him in the window
(You bought him from the local pet store)
You can't forget the first time you brought him home
(You brought him home, he went on the floor)
You could have taught him (the dog) then if you would have known
(All you know Now)

You can't teach an ol' dog new tricks
He only knows what he may
No you can't teach an ol' dog new tricks
He'll only curl his tail and run away
You can't teach an ol' dog new tricks
He only knows what he's trained
No you can't teach an ol' dog new tricks
Not even if you get down and beg
No you can't teach an ol' dog
No no way
You can't teach an ol' dog new tricks

He'll only curl his tail and run away

HATEFUL
The Clash

Kill that drummer..
Well i've got a friend who's a man
Who's a man?
The man who keeps me from the lovely, the lovely (lonely?)
He gives me what i need
What you need? What you got?
I need it all so badly

Chorus
Oohh, anything i want, he gives it to me,
Anything i want, he gives it,
But not for free
It's hateful, it's hateful, and it's paid for, and i'm so grateful, to be
nowhere

This year i've lost some friends
Some friends? What friends?
I dunno, i ain't even noticed
You see, I gotta go out again
Again?
My friend i gotta see that mainman

Chorus (x2 --2nd--slow)

I killed all my nerves, my nerves?
What swerves?
And i can't drive so steady
Oohh, i've lost my memory,--memory
My mind?
Behind!
I can't see so clearly

Chorus (x2 without "it's hateful....to be nowhere")
not for free (x5)

IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT
(AND I FEEL FINE)
R.E.M.

That's great, it starts with an earthquake,
birds and snakes, an aeroplane - Lenny Bruce is not afraid.
Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn
world serves its own needs, don't misserve your own needs.
Feed it up a knock, speed, grunt no, strength no.
Ladder structure clatter with fear of height, down height.
Wire in a fire, represent the seven games
in a government for hire and a combat site.
Left her, wasn't coming in a hurry with the furies breathing down your neck.
Team by team reporters baffled, trump, tethered crop.
Look at that low plane! Fine then.
Uh oh, overflow, population, common group, but it'll do.
Save yourself, serve yourself.
World serves its own needs, listen to your heart bleed.
Tell me with the rapture and the reverent in the right - right.
You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright light, feeling pretty psyched.

It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine

Six o'clock - TV hour. Don't get caught in foreign tower.
Slash and burn, return, listen to yourself churn.
Lock him in uniform and book burning, blood letting.
Every motive escalate. Automotive incinerate.
Light a candle, light a motive. Step down, step down.
Watch a heel crush, crush.
Uh oh, this means no fear - cavalier. Renegade and steer clear!
A tournament, a tournament, a tournament of lies.
Offer me solutions, offer me alternatives and I decline.

It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine
I feel fine

The other night I tripped a nice continental drift divide.
Mount St. Edelite. Leonard Bernstein.
Leonid Breshnev, Lenny Bruce and Lester Bangs.
Birthday party, cheesecake, jelly bean, boom!
You symbiotic, patriotic, slam, but neck, right? Right.

It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine

It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine
It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine
It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine

FULL CIRCLE
G.Stefani, T.Kanal

All I've ever touched or said to them
Becomes a rehearsal for you, just practicing,
Too many magic moments to be coincidence
It all comes full circle

I knew someone who knew you
And he introduced me to you
Your ex-girlfriend had a boyfriend
Who kissed my girlfriend
Who dated Adrian

The world keeps on getting smaller and smaller
And everything comes back full circle, full circle
Six degrees of seperation
We all know someone else
It all comes full circle

And you come from England
My ex-boyfriend, he is Indian
British passport, we're all connected
And everyone else is affected

The world keeps on getting smaller and smaller
And everything comes back full circle, full circle
Six degrees of seperation
We all know someone else
It all comes full circle
It all comes full circle

The world keeps on getting smaller and smaller
And everything comes back full circle, full circle
Six degrees of seperation
We all know someone else
It all comes full circle

The world keeps on getting smaller and smaller
And everything comes back full circle, full circle
Six degrees of seperation
We all know someone else
It all comes full circle

LEFTOVERS
G.Stefani, T.Kanal

Thinking what should I do
Now I don't have you
Facing my demotion
Just a fish in your ocean
Has been that's what I am
With my backstage wristband
Freaking seconds of you
That's not what I'm used to feed

Feed 'em all to me
Careful with my stuff
What's your policy
First one's free

I save 'em up, I put 'em in my pocket
I save 'em up, put 'em in a jar
I save 'em up, man, I need 'em for later
I save 'em up, then they'll go real far

Many names to take down
I take the leftovers
Cold ones and the old ones
Better than no ones
Feed, feed 'em all to me
Careful with my stuff
What's your policy
First one's free

I save 'em up, I put 'em in my pocket
I save 'em up, put 'em in a jar
I save 'em up, I need 'em for later
I save 'em up, then they'll go real far

I time it out, gotta be real careful
I time it out, get 'em right on time
I time it out, I get 'em when I need 'em
Time is up what's left is over

It's over
I can never have enough
We can never have enough
I sure am greedy
Hand 'em over to me

Nothing's free

I save 'em up, I put 'em in my pocket
I save 'em up, put 'em in a jar
I save 'em up, gonna need 'em for later
I save 'em up, then I go real far

I time it out, I'll be real careful
I time it out, get 'em right on time
I time it out, I get 'em when I need 'em
Time is up what's left is over

Need 'em, man, I need 'em
Because I need 'em
Time is up what's left is over
Time it out, time it out
Because I need 'em, man, I need 'em
What should I do, when I don't have you?
Really need 'em, really need 'em
Because I need 'em
I take the leftovers, I take the leftovers

BEAUTY CONTEST
G.Stefani, T.Kanal

Damsel in distress is quite submissive
Look how somber my vanity is
A famine, a human creature
Superficial seducing detour
I'm going to the mall for the cookie cutter
The ugly duckling will always suffer
Contaminated standards, don’t try to fight it
I better get back on my diet

Obsessed with a beauty contest
Beauty contest
How my vanity is such a mess
Beauty Contest
I'm Obsessed

Reduce myself or cut the strict restrictions
Not sexy enough without the regulations
I mold and pull, I can’t fit my fading features
Born to blossom and bloom to perish

Obsessed with a beauty contest
Beauty contest
Oh, I've got to get out of this mess
Beauty Contest
I'm Obsessed

And I've fallen, I can't help myself
I’m feeling envious of all the rest
Your bringing out the lemming in me
A victim of the cattle-call disease
Not easy to be me
Oh Ahhhh...Oh Ahhhh…Ahhhh…Oh Ahhhh...Ahhhh
I feel swollen

Obsessed with a beauty contest
Beauty Contest
How my vanity is such a mess
Obsessed with a beauty contest

Obsessed with a beauty contest
Beauty Contest
I’ve got to get out of this mess
Obsessed with a beauty contest

Obsessed with a beauty contest
Beauty Contest
How my vanity is such a mess
Caught in the beauty contest (caught up in the beauty contest) 5x

And I feel swollen
How my vanity is such a mess

My vanity is a mess.

CELLOPHANE BOY
G.Stefani, T.Kanal

And I'm not the judge or the referree
And I can't accept, 'cause I am uptight
And the smoke clying into my eyes are burning
My concern is I just might get a new life

And I can't relate to the hypnotist
And I can't get close 'cause of plastic wrap
And I want to have kids but their father's up inside the clouds
the distance bewteen us on my mind

Up until now things have been fine, temporarily
You're cute but the circumstances have changed
Your subtition method crutch
Your whole protection from your fame
There's presentation on my ploy
Is to change my cellophane boy

aoh, it's not the 70s
let your future fly with me

CHORUS

And I want your habit to be me
Your harbor and your refugee

UNDER CONSTRUCTION
G.Stefani, T.Kanal

His accent serenades me and presses at the door
Broken promise to be around for my mind war
And my accomplishment's interrogating me
Today's become tomorrow before I wanted it to be
And desperate discussions
The start of the destruction
Our sign, in my mind
I'll be fine
I'll be fine

'Cause I'm under construction everyone
So you'll have to mind the mess
I'm under some construction

I always had to try harder, I never really could keep up
Sitting in the corner with my illness and bad luck
But in this humble place I'm feeling like red wine
And I hope to get better with some time
I'll be fine
With some time
I'll be fine

'Cause I'm under construction everyone
So you'll have to mind the mess
I'm under some construction

Construction
Modification
Motivation
Of construction

And the rituals that soothe and disgust me will be gone
With some time
I'll be fine
With some time
I'll be fine
I'll be fine

I'm under construction everyone
So you'll have to mind the mess
I'm under some construction
I'm under construction everyone
So you'll have to mind the mess
I'm under some construction
Under construction
Construction
Feel better with some construction

LET ME BLOW YA MIND
E. Jeffers, A. Young, M. Elizondo, S. Strorch, S. Jordan

[Eve] :
Uh, uh, uh, huh
Yo, yo
Drop your glasses, shake your asses
Face screwed up like you having hot flashes
Which one, pick one, this one, classic
Red from blonde, yeah bitch I'm drastic
Why this, why that, lips stop askin'
Listen to me baby, relax and start passin'
Expressway, hair back, weavin through the traffic
This one strong should be labeled as a hazard
Some of y'all niggas hot, sike I'm gassin'
Clowns I spot em and I can't stop laughin'
Easy come, easy go, E-V gonna be lastin
Jealousy, let it go, results could be tragic
Some of y'all ain't writin' well, too concerned with fashion
None of you ain't gizell, cat walk and imagine
Alotta y'all Hollywood, drama, passed it
Cut bitch, camera off, real shit, blast it

[Gwen Stefani] :
And if I had to give you up
It's only been a year
Now I got my foot through the door
And I ain't goin' nowhere
It took awhile to get me in
And I'm gonna take my time
Don't fight that good shit in your ear
Now let me blow ya mind

[Eve]
They wanna bank up, crank up, makes me dizzy
Shank up, haters wanna come after me
You ain't a ganster, prankster, too much to eat
Snakes in my path wanna smile up at me

Now while you grittin' your teeth
Frustration baby you gotta breathe
Take alot more that you to get rid of me
You see I do what they can't do, I just do me
Ain't no stress when it comes to stage, get what you see
Meet me in the lab, pen and pad, don't believe
Huh, sixteens mine, create my own lines
Love for my wordplay that's hard to find
Sophomore, I aint scared, one of a kind
All I do is contemplate ways to make your fans mine
Eyes bloodshot, stressin', chills up your spine
Huh, sick to your stomach wishin' I wrote your lines

[Gwen Stefani] :
And if I had to give you up
It's only been a year
Now I got my foot through the door
And I ain't goin' nowhere
It took awhile to get me in
And I'm gonna take my time
Don't fight that good shit in your ear
Now let me blow ya mind

[Eve] :
Let your bones crack
Your back pop, I can't stop
Excitement, glock shots from your stash box
Fuck it, thugged out, I respect the cash route
Locked down, blastin', sets while I mash out
Yeah nigga, mash out, D-R-E
Back track, think back, E-V-E
Do you like that (ooooh), you got to I know you
Had you in a trance first glance from the floor too
Don't believe I'll show you, take you with me
Turn you on, pension gone, give you relief
Put your trust in a bomb when you listen to me
Dance you much, then in all, now I'm complete, uh huh
Still stallion, brick house, pile it on
Ryde or Die, bitch, double R, can't crawl
Beware, cuz I crush anything I land on
Me here, ain't no mistake nigga it was planned on

[Gwen Stefani] :
And if I had to give you up
It's only been a year
Now I got my foot through the door
And I aint goin nowhere
It took awhile to get me in
And I'm gonna take my time
Don't fight that good shit in your ear
Now let me blow ya mind

EVERYTHING IN TIME (LONDON)

Everything I do
Everything is you

Cinderella hope
And it's all because you made me laugh
Coincidence or fate
Running towards a catastrophe

And everything I choose
Everything for you
And everything always in time will come
And I believe it's all for a reason

She asked how we are
She asked if I was all weird again
And of course I am
But I'm trying really, really hard
So I lied to her
And I was wearing this prisoner face
So deep inside she had to know
I'm feeling lost inside the low

Everything always in time will come

And lying in your bed
I am a refugee you try to love
Am I wasting all of your time
And all my cute days on regret?
Is it healthy that we met?

Everything always in time will come

Is it wrong holding on
To my best friend my faded lover?
Who knows?

Coincidence or fate
Running towards what is meant to be

Save me

Everything always in time will show
Then we will know, it will show
Everthing always in time will come
And I believe for everything there is a reason
And everything always in time will...

Everything I do
Everything is you

She asked how we are
She asked If I was all weird again
And of course I am
But I'm trying really hard
So I lied to her
And I was wearing this prisoner face
So deep inside she had to know
Once again I've lost control

For everything, there is a reason
Everything, I hope in time, will come

Lying in your bed
I am a refugee you try to love
But the love that he killed
Keeps coming back and haunting me
Am I wasting all of your time
And all my cute days on regrets?
Is it healthy that we met?

Everything always in time will show
Then we will know it will show
Everything always in time will come

Is it wrong holding in on too much?
To my best friend, my faded lover?
Who knows?

Cinderella Hope
And it's all because he made me laugh
Coincidence or fate
Running towards a catastrophe
Save me

Everything always in time is gone
It'll be gone, we'll be gone
Everything always in time will come
Oh it will come, it will come
For everything there is a reason
I believe for everything there is a reason
And everything always in time will come
