Track Name: D.T.M.A. (Dance This Mess Around)
INTRO:
You don’t wanna put me in the corner (yeah)
Whatever (whatever), I don’t care

VERSE 1:
Remember when you held my hand
Remember when you said you’d take a stand, the cause
We used to walk, talk, in the name of love
Before they took our thoughts
Think it over
Think it over in your mind

CHORUS:
Why don’t you dance with me?
I’m just a little girl
Why don’t you dance with me?
I’m just a little girl
Why don’t you dance with me?
I’m just a little black girl

VERSE 2:
Everybody goes to parties
They dance this mess around
They do the hypocrite
‘Cuz they ain’t got no swagger
Hippi, hippi, hippi, why you slippin’ and you trippin’
Hippi, hippi, hippi, talkin’ loud and sayin’ nothing

(Well doesn’t that make you feel a lot better? Uh uh. What you say?)

So why you put us in the corner?
We’re gonna dance this mess around
We’re not leaving til it’s over
We’re gonna dance this mess around.
Shake, shake (I’m sorry, whatever) shake, shake

OUTRO:
We used to walk, talk, in the name of love (It’s not over til it’s over)
Walk, talk, in the name of love (We’re not leavin’ cause they’re cheatin’)
We used to walk, talk, in the name of love (It’s not over til it’s over)
Dance this mess around
Track Name: I Can't Get No Boy
CHORUS:
I can’t get no boy to love me, oh no (4x)

VERSE:
Boy wonder wit his blue eyes
Rock star guitar mesmerized
Fell in love with him and everything he couldn’t be
Wild stallion on the scene doin’ her and me

So I found me a southern boy
Tall dreadlock, chocolate southern boy
He opened every single door
But he couldn’t commit, ha

CHORUS:
I can’t get no boy to love me, oh no (4x)

VERSE:
Caramel intellectual
Scattin’ bebop, jazz violin strings
Conversation stimulatin’ scientifically
But when it came to being spiritual he couldn't’ see

Boys playin’ games I ain’t your toy
Fly sistas need the real mccoy
If you can make the grade we’ll see
But you gotta commit, ha

I need a man who’s gonna treat me right
Simple things like hold me tight
When he tell me, he gon be there I can trust his word
Don’t need to worry bout him freakin’ with another bird

You’ll love to eat sushi wit me,
We’ll rock the night away ya see
I’ll be your queen of ecstasy
But you gotta commit, ha

CHORUS:
I can’t get no boy to love me, oh no (4x)

OUTRO:
I said, I said I can’t get no boy
To rub my damn feet
I said, I said, I can’t get no boy
Track Name: Time (feat. D Rose & Shelly)
CHORUS:
Time won’t stand still
I move on, I move on
Time won’t stand still
I move on, I move on

VERSE 1:
A wise woman she told me once that time was of the essence
My favorite poet said in scripture time we cannot measure
So why we try to measure
Put a dollar sign on pleasure
The clock is ticking pressure
And my heart drops from the pressure
But I, I’m gonna walk my life the way I live
I, I’m gonna keep it on the positive
I, gonna move on my way...

CHORUS:
Time won’t stand still
I move on, I move on
Time won’t stand still
I move on, I move on

Movin’, movin’, movin’
Movin’, movin’, movin’

RAP VERSE 1:
Clock wise tweleve to twelve
Never look back not afraid to fail
But girls want it like back on white
No time for that life
This rap rhyme too tight
Wait, back again
Don’t slack again
On track again, never ever sleep on your back again rip...

RAP VERSE 2:
Three, two, one
I gotta move, move
I gotta pick up my puzzle and get my pieces straight

RAP VERSE 3:
Wait, but if you lose, lose
You’ll be stuck at the bottom and all you do is just wait
A wise man once said take your time
The preacher man said time’s on my side
But I don’t really wanna be wastin’ mine
So, I’m keeping it movin’, ‘cuz I ain’t got time I just,

Move, move ,move, (8x)

OUTRO: (2x) until the end...
Time is movin’ and it ain’t gon’ stop
Time is movin’ and it ain’t gon’ stop
Time is movin’ and it ain’t gon’ stop
Time is movin’ ain’t ain’t gon’ stop
(Fade until end)
Track Name: Do I Really Wanna Be (A Rock Star)
VERSE 1:
Pardon my interruption like the sports show
I’m the circle to you squares like dominos
Would you fellas like a taste of the cinnamon?
You ain’t getting my taxes like a Indian, Ho
Huh

Well I’m just saying hi, hi
You probably thinking that I’m playin' sides, na
Well I’m just sayin’ my sistas I know you wit’ me
There’s a lot of bad wolves in this big girl city

Pocketbook on my side
Heels, jeans on my thighs
Think Imma hit the city and steal somebody’s eyes
Tell em’ you heard it from me first that
I am the best and you’re the worst at judging me your honor

It’s no good, they said I was no good
Your girl is so ready, my flow is so steady
Steady on my feet even when the world’s heavy
Even if the clock stop, never will, ever ready

CHORUS:
Oh, yeah, she’s a rock star yes
Oh, yeah, she wanna be a star now hey
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh, oh oh

VERSE 2:
And, autumn leaves crumble taste the last days of summer
Regret the last time I saw him rip the page numbers
Out the magazine mama screamed when she me in
Ebony posing with the Queen - UNITY

At times I’m wreckless, pushin’ for this success
How many steps does it take to get behind the music?
So deflated yet tomorrow I’m elated
Biggest critic is in my mind, day by day I try to slay it

So -f- that professor and industry folks professin’ and
Tryin’ to teach me a lesson and testin’ me
I’m not guessin’ see I got blessin’ I got my light, I got my star
It was gifted in my spirit since I was a little girl, like

CHORUS: (2x)
Oh, yeah, she’s a rock star yes
Oh, yeah, she wanna be a star now hey
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh, oh oh


OUTRO: (6x)
She, ee, is, is, a, a, star now
She, ee, wants to be a rockstar
Track Name: Forcin' It (feat. D Rose)

Uh oh, Why y’all be forcin' it?
(What you talkin’ bout?) Please, please, please naw. (Please, whatever)
Look (don’t do it)

VERSE 1:
Saggin’ all y’all jeans
Ladies pushin' up y'all bra (No)
Makeup on the weekdays (No)
Y’all taking it too far
Y’all forcin’ it
Why you be forcin’ it? (Stop forcin’ it)

VERSE 2:
And of course it’s a force for you to support
All them damn name brands y’all can’t even afford (Whatever)
Why you be forcin’ it?
Why ya’ll be forcin’ it?

But you ridin’ the T and your purse cost a grand mama (Rear door!)
Your damn jeans cost more than your damn Honda (My man has a car at tome)
Forcin' it
Why you be forcin’ it?

PRE CHORUS
Why you goin’ to church with 5-inch stiletto shoes on
Talkin' bout your praising the lord
Force

CHORUS
Need to give it up
Be yourself you're going to far (4x)
Gotta be who you are
Don’t force it

VERSE 3
Walkin’ round town and you’re thinkin’ that you’re so fly
Need to get your shit together take a look inside why you be forcin’ it?

(And I said) Why you going to the club wearing sunglasses and shit and something
that your ass can’t even afford?
Force

CHORUS
Need to give it up
Be yourself you're going to far (4x)
You gotta be who you are
Don’t force it

BRIDGE:
I got a feeling that you wanna be yourself
But you keep giving yourself away
We should all get lalala…
We should all get lalala…

VERSE 4:
(Yeah stop forcing it
Stop forcin’ it
Wait! Please stop forcin’ it,
Stop forcin’ it Wait!)
Slowin’ it down
Pickin' it up
I can ride fast I can switch it up
Forcin' it, stop forcin’ it
That’s that shit that make me sick (Wack)
Told you once and I told you twice
Take my advice spread love and light (Listen)
Y'all know its wrong but I say it’s right
Y’all know it’s wrong but I say it’s right
Pregnant girls wit them heels on (No)
Hoopties wit wheels on (Uh Uh)
Gold teeth wif missin’ teeth
Long hair and that’s all weave
Y'all forcin’ it (I’m natural)

(Wait, wait, wait)
Got your pants down by your ass (No)
Boy you ain’t got no class (Pull that shit up)
You know that that look trash
Gotta get your mind in tact
Y'all forcing it (Get your mind together, (wait, wait) gotta get your mind together)

Poppin' bottles off in that club
Sippin’ that drink slow
When it come to payin that bill
Boy you ain’t got no dough
Y'all forcin’ it (Broke, broke, broke)

Yeah I said it y'all forcin’ it
It’s gotta stop, it’s gotta stop
Man please stop forcin’ it (Yeah)
Gotta get your mind together, y'all forcing it
(Those are designer jeans)
Track Name: Kennedy Rose
VERSE 1:
Can’t tell you how it began
Didn’t even have your name or plan
Talkin’ I’m here, this will get through
Didn’t know that I was losin’ you
Another life I’ll be here
Where nothin’ would ever disappear
Could have told you what you meant to me
What a beauty to be

I guess I’ll see her heaven, Kennedy Rose
And there she goes now
I guess I’ll see her in heaven, Kennedy Rose
(Guess I’ll see her rose)

VERSE 3:
Slipped away don’t know how to regret
No one knows but my feelings are threat?
Being here is there nothing better?
Hope she’s there oh please God, let her
Another life I’ll be here
Where nothing would ever disappear
Could have told you what you meant to me
What a beauty to be

CHORUS:
And there she goes now
I guess I’ll see her heaven, Kennedy Rose
And there she goes now
I guess I’ll see her in heaven, Kennedy Rose
(Guess I’ll see her rose)

BRIDGE:
Right now we want to have her with us
We’ve got to wait to see her smiling on the other side
On the other side
Right now we want to have her with us
We’ve got to wait to see her smiling on the other side
On the other side

And there she goes now
I guess I’ll see her heaven, Kennedy Rose
And there she goes now
