Bounce bounce bounce bounce
Keep it movin' bounce (repeat)

Once again nothin' jumpin' up in your place
Sick of your berry buzzin' all in my face
Way too much to tolerate
Time to roll, y'all know I gots to migrate
Speed dial connecting me to Rae Rae "hey"
Click in Shawnte and Mae Mae "hey"
"Treat it as a holiday" cause he's a wrap
Y'all know I gots to migrate

So I'm on my way home
Cause my jeans, yeah they fit but it might benefit
Me to throw somethin' on
To feature my hips accentuate my ^!^$
And steal the show

Soon as we walk through the door
Fellas be grabbin' at us like "yo"
Tryin' to get us goin' off that patrón
We sippin' grigio, slow
If your neck and your wrist coordinate
Hair braided or faded ok...
We can move this back to my place
It's time to migrate

From my car into the club, we migrate
From the bar to VIP, we migrate
From the party to the after party, migrate
After party to hotel, migrate

As we proceed getting buzzed the envious ones
Hatin' but they can't take their eyes off us
But we don't see none of that
They playin' my jam and the floor is packed
So y'all need to migrate up out the door
We're clickin' glasses compliments of the club
We raise their status so you know they show us love
Everywhere we go they gon' flock
Them boys migrate to where it's hot
Soon as we walk through the door
Fellas be grabbin' at us like "yo"
Tryin' to get us goin' off that patrón
We sippin' grigio, slow
If you're inked up thuggin' that swag I like
Face body and Lamborghini outside
Obviously boy you qualify Otherwise migrate, bye

From my car into the club, we migrate
From the bar to VIP, we migrate
From the party to the after party, migrate
After party to hotel, migrate

T-Pain:
This is where it begins and ends at the very same time
Teddy Pain the main man of the hour
Got a flow that'll deflect yo tire
Got stacks plus I'm back with Mariah
We stay down like four flats on a Cadillac
Packed to the back with full phat girls
If you feel like doin' a dance
I'm gonna pull up my pants
Come on back, girl
But I gotta migrate to bar
From the bar to the floor
From the floor to the car
From the car to the crib
Then back to the club
We can migrate in
And mini coupe sittin on dubs
Whatcha waitin' on,
I can't stand in one place
I'm on that Platinum Patron
And I hate when I don't get it my way
So don't wait for me to buy drinks or you gon' dehydrate
It's time to migrate
Soon as I walk through the door
They know I'm from the 8-5-0
I need three bottles of that Patron
I can make the Chevrolet grease up slow
If your ass and your titties coordinate
Shawty, shawty, look it ain't OK
We can move this back to my place
Shawty best believe, it's time to migrate

Soon as we walk through the door
Fellas be grabbin' at us like "yo"
Tryin' to get us goin' off the patrón... Slow
We sippin grigio, slow
If you're inked up thuggin' that swag I like
Face body and Lamborghini outside
Obviously boy you qualify
Otherwise migrate... Bye
Keep it movin' bounce

I know that you been waiting for it, I'm waiting too
In my imagination I be all up on you
I know you got that fever for me 102°
And boy I know I feel the same
My temperature's through the roof

If there's a camera up in here
Then it's gon' leave with me when I do
If there's a camera up in here
Then I best not catch this flick on You Tube
Cause if you run your mouth
And brag about this secret rendezvous
I will hunt you down
Cause they be all up in my business
Like a Wendy interview
But this is private 'tween you and I

Touch my body, put me on the floor
Wrestle me around, play with me some more
Touch my body, throw me on the bed
I just wanna make you feel like you never did
Touch my body, let me wrap my thighs
All around your waist, just a little taste
Touch my body, know you like my curves
Come on and give me what I deserve
And touch my body

Boy you can put me on you like a brand new white tee
I'll hug your body tighter than my favorite jeans
I want you to caress me like a tropical breeze
And float away with you in my Caribbean seas

If there's a camera up in here
Then it's gon' leave with me when I do
If there's a camera up in here
Then I best not catch this flick on You Tube (You Tube)
Cause if you run your mouth
And brag about this secret rendezvous
I will hunt you down
Cause they be all up in my business
Like a Wendy interview
But this is private 'tween you and I

Touch my body, put me on the floor
Wrestle me around, play with me some more
Touch my body, throw me on the bed
I just wanna make you feel like you never did
Touch my body, let me wrap my thighs
All around your waist, just a little taste
Touch my body, know you like my curves
Come on and give me what I deserve
And touch my body

I'm gonna treat you like a teddy bear
You won't wanna go nowhere
In the lap of luxury
Laying intertwined with me
You won't want for nothin' boy
I will give you plenty joy

Touch my body, put me on the floor
Wrestle me around, play with me some more
Touch my body, throw me on the bed
I just wanna make you feel like you never did
Touch my body, let me wrap my thighs
All around your waist, just a little taste
Touch my body, know you like my curves
Come on and give me what I deserve
And touch my body

Can't get him outta my mind
Can't explain it but it's somethin' bout him
Makin' me hot like a motor revvin' over and over
It don't stop he cruised beside me now I'm
Flyin', driving
Through yellow lights I'm ignorin' every sign of caution
That they provide
Drivers education 101 slipped out of my mind
I need me a caddy with some cruise control

I've been told so many sagas
He brings the drama, six baby mamas
But uh oh, I can't resist him
Just want to kiss him I need cruise control

Might need to go slow, I don't know
Why I ease up on the brake every time I see his face
I'm outta control I...I don't know
How to stay up in my lane
Every day and night he's cruisin through my brain
Wherever I go he be cruisin'
Turn to the right ooh he so smooth with it
Deep down inside don't want to lose him
He already know I'm willin' to go
Gotta get on cruise control

C-R-U-I-S-E control
C-R-U-I-S-E control
C-R-U-I-S-E control
C-R-U-I-S-E control

Can't nobody can't nobody tell me nothin'
When he comes into view
Cause he's the flyest ting when he be cruisin'
On me avenue
When tha door open, de gals pon de block
They be hopin', to rob tha clock me say no man
Step up step up bottle broken, think I'm jokin'...?

I've been told so many sagas
He brings the drama, six baby mamas
But uh oh, I can't resist him
Just want to kiss him I need cruise control

Might need to go slow I don't know
Why I ease up on the brake every time I see his face
I'm outta control I...I don't know
How to stay up in me lane
Every day and night he's cruisin through my brain
Wherever I go he be cruisin'
Turn to the right ooh he so smooth with it
Deep down inside don't want to lose him
He already know I'm willin' to go
Gotta get on cruise control

Damian Marley:
You put your hand in cruise control
And you deny me if you want
And you will starve yourself of love
If you don't speed and break the law
You can't get no speeding ticket
On the highway to my heart
And it might be a rocky road
And you can exit if you want
Why you always look at life just like a pessimist
You already like a wife up in my premises
And right ya now you cruise control it is my nemesis
Just come again and stop and start just like a genesis

Might need to go slow I don't know
Why I ease up on the brake every time I see his face
I'm outta control I...I don't know
How to stay up in my lane
Every day and night he's cruisin' through my brain
Wherever I go he be cruisin'
Turn to the right oh he so smooth with it
Deep down inside don't want to lose him
He already know I'm willin' to go
Gotta get on cruise control

Dying inside cause I can't stand it
Make up break up can't take this madness
We don't even really know why all I know is baby I
Try and try so hard to keep our love alive
If you don't know me at this point
Then I highly doubt you ever will
I really need you to give me
That unconditional love I used to feel
It's a mistake if we just erase it
From our hearts and minds I know

We said let go but I kept on hangin' on
Inside I know it's over you're really gone
It's killing me cause there ain't nothing that I can do
Baby I stay in love with you
And I keep on telling myself that you'll come back around
And I try to front like "Oh well"
Each time you let me down
See I can't get over you now, no matter what I do
Baby baby, I stay in love with you

It cuts so deep it hurts down to my soul
My friends tell me I ain't the same no more
We still need each other when we stumble and fall how
We gon' act like what we had ain't nothing at all now
Hey, what I wanna do is ride shotgun next to you
With the top down like we used to
Hit the block proud in the SU
We both know our heart is breakin'
Can we learn from our mistakes
I can't last one moment alone, although I know

We said let go but I kept on hangin' on
Inside I know it's over you're really gone
It's killing me cause there ain't nothing that I can do
Baby I stay in love with you
And I keep on telling myself that you'll come back around
And I try to front like "Oh well"
Each time you let me down
See I can't get over you now, no matter what I do
Baby baby, I stay in love with you

We said let go but I kept on hangin' on
Inside I know it's over you're really gone
It's killing me cause there ain't nothing that I can do
Baby I stay in love with you
And I keep on telling myself that you'll come back around
And I try to front like "Oh well"
Each time you let me down
See I can't get over you now, no matter what I do
Baby baby, I stay in love with you

We said let go but I kept on hangin' on
Inside I know it's over you're really gone
It's killing me cause there ain't nothing that I can do
Baby I stay in love with you
And I keep on telling myself that you'll come back around
And I try to front like "Oh well"
Each time you let me down
See I can't get over you now, no matter what I do
Baby baby, I stay in love with you

Young Jeezy:
It's MC and YJ, another hit
We lookin' fly takin' off, show us where the runway
On any given Sunday, Monday, Tuesday
They try to confuse me
I never let 'em use me

I was a girl you were "the man"
I was too young to understand
I was naive I just believed everything that you told me
Said you were strong, protecting me
Then I found out that you were weak
Keeping me there under your thumb
Cause you were scared that I'd become much
More than you could handle
Shining like a chandelier
That decorated every room inside the private
Hell we built and I dealt with it
Like a kid I wished I could fly away but instead I

Kept my tears inside cause I knew if I
Started I'd keep cryin' for the rest of my
Life with you I finally built up the strength
To walk away don't regret it
But I still live with the side effects

Wakin' up scared some nights
Still dreaming 'bout the violent times
Still a little protective 'bout the people that I let inside
Still a little defensive thinking
Folks be tryin' to run my life
Still a little depressed inside I fake a smile
And deal with the side effects

Side effects
Side effects
Side effects

Vacant inside, no one was there
Couldn't be real, had to keep quiet
Once in a while put up a fight it's just too much
Night after night
After a while I would just lie
You were dead wrong said you were right
Did what I could just to survive
Couldn't believe this was my life
Flickering like a candle
Doing my best to handle
Sleeping with the enemy aware that he was smothering
Every last part of me
So I broke away and finally found the strength to breathe

Kept my tears inside cause I knew if I
Started I'd keep cryin' for the rest of my
Life with you I finally built up the strength
To walk away don't regret it
But I still live with the side effects

Wakin' up scared some nights
Still dreaming 'bout the violent times
Still a little protective 'bout the people that I let inside
Still a little defensive thinking
Folks be tryin' to run my life
Still a little depressed inside I fake a smile
And deal with the side effects

Side effects
Side effects
Side effects

Young Jeezy:
Magnifico, or should I say magnificent?
Ain't nothing worth your happiness
And I ain't caring who you're with
Misery loves company, so we ain't tryin' to hang with y'all
Hurt you if you let 'em in, gotta keep your circle small
They keep tryin' to play 'pology, tell 'em I ain't bowlin' though
Think they want me outta here, tell 'em I ain't goin' though
Side effects be drowsiness, loneliness, how is this?
I think the call it hateration
What can you prescribe for this?

Forgive but I can't forget
Everyday I deal with this
I live with the side effects
But I ain' gon' let them get the best of me
Forgive but I can't forget
Everyday I deal with this
I live with the side effects
But I ain' gon' let them get the best of me

(Chorus repeat)

Ay bay bay it won't end won't end won't end
(Repeat)

This is my love story...
Boy meets girl and looks in her eyes
Time stands still and two hearts catch fire
Off they go roller coaster ride
Up and down and around twisted all out their minds
And then his friends
Said "it's too soon to settle down"
And then her friends
Said "he's a playa slow it down"
They couldn't be who they were cause it just seemed like
Love wasn't on their side

But this isn't just another love story
Together we'll make history
I know because it's just too real
There'll be no end to our love story
And this ain't gon' end up
Like that Casablanca movie... No
This ain't no fairy tale or fiction this is truly
Ours for all eternity
There'll be no end to our love story baby

And there'll be no end
There's no end to our love story
Ay bay bay it won't end won't end won't end
(Repeat)
And there'll be no end
There's no end to our love story

Chapter two when they meet up again
Second time around see but they're just friends
But the feeling's still strong and it's been too long
To be trippin' like they ain't been missing
They on the phone like
Ay bay bay let's meet up today
I gots bout an hour or two
Ya might as well come thru
We can make it like it was
Just the two of us
Back up on that roller coaster
Like we been supposed to cause

This isn't just another love story
Together we'll make history
I know because it's destiny
There'll be no end to our love story
And this ain't gon' end up
Like that Casablanca movie... No
This ain't no fairy tale or fiction this is truly
Ours for all eternity
There'll be no end to our love story baby

Just when it seemed like all the odds
Were stacked against them
They came back stronger than before
Matter fact then some
Stronger than pride lookin' like them
Lookin' like her lookin' like him
Stronger than hate and the whole world too
Lookin' like me lookin' like you

This isn't just another love story
Together we'll make history
I know because it's destiny
There'll be no end to our love story
And this ain't gon' end up
Like that Casablanca movie... No
This ain't no fairy tale or fiction this is truly
Ours for all eternity
There'll be no end to our love story baby

Ay bay bay it won't end won't end won't end

I'll be lovin' you long time
I... I'll be lovin' I'll be lovin' I'll be lovin' I'll be lovin'
I'll be lovin' I'll be lovin' I'll be lovin' you
(Repeat)

You ain't even gotta worry
About a thing I gotcha babe
And ain't nobody takin' me away
It's not a game I'm here to stay
See our love is stronger than any drug
Addictive just can't get enough
And everytime I'm with you I want some more
Just close the door and let's explore each other

Long as I know you got me
I'll be loving you long time (As I can breathe)
I'll be loving you long time (Eternally)
There's no stopping you and me
I'll be loving you long time (As I can breathe)
I'll be loving you long time (Eternally)

Don't care what no one has to say
They don't understand us like we do
I need you near me night and day
Together there ain't nothin' we can't do
Scoop me up and we can go
To that little spot where no one knows
Spend a little time just us alone
You can caress my body and never let go

Long as I know you got me
I'll be loving you long time (As I can breathe)
I'll be loving you long time (Eternally)
There's no stopping you and me
I'll be loving you long time (As I can breathe)
I'll be loving you long time (Eternally)

Don't want another ain't gon' never be another
Can't nobody do what you do to me
Don't want another ain't gon' never be another
Can't nobody do what you do to me
Don't want another ain't gon' never be another
Can't nobody do what you do to me
I'll be loving you long as I can breathe

Long as I know you got me
I'll be loving you long time (As I can breathe)
I'll be loving you long time (Eternally)
There's no stopping you and me
I'll be loving you long time (As I can breathe)
I'll be loving you long time (Eternally)

Feels so empty inside since our last kiss goodbye
Picture you in my mind and I can't seem to rationalize
The way we let it end
It just don't make no sense
This can't be happening
I need you back again

Everybody asking questions
Like we're some kind of obsession
For the millionth time asking I'm like
"Uhh, just let it rest"
Can I get a minute to breathe
They're like "Nope!
What's up with you and so & so?"

But in my heart I know this
Ain't gon' be our last kiss
It's too big we just can't quit
What you think this is?
Our love will always exist
Aww listen to me
Boy you know we trill
So stop frontin'
What we got is still sumthin' sumthin'
Oh, this feeling is too good to miss
And ain't no kiss gon' ever be our last kiss

You said you'd never leave me so I'll keep believing
That eventually
We gon' kiss away the hurt do it like it were
And wake up how we used to be
Never let it go get it right
Bring it back home stay for life
Call it what you want it's in your eyes
We gon' make it through this I'll prove it
Somethin' bout our love will not fade away
Always everlasting and

In my heart I know this
Ain't gon' be our last kiss
It's too big we just can't quit
What you think this is
Our love will always exist
Aww listen to me
Boy you know we trill
So stop frontin'
What we got is still sumthin' sumthin'
Oh, this feelin' is too good to miss
And ain't no kiss gon' ever be our last kiss

Whoo ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Whoo ooh ooh oo oo oo oh

But in my heart I know this
Ain't gon' be our last kiss
It's too big we just can't quit
What you think this is?
Our love will always exist aww listen to me
Boy you know we trill
So stop frontin'
What we got is still sumthin' sumthin'
Oh this feeling is too good to miss
And ain't no kiss gon' ever be our last kiss

Thanx 4 nothin'
You were just playin' a game
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
(Repeat)

"I can't even know what to say"
I've been hurt I've been played
And I'm so shamed
I can't even cry it's that deep
You just lie and you cheat
Like it's nothing

See you said that you loved me too
And so I trusted you
But I guess that subconsciously I knew
But I didn't wanna face the truth
That I was only being used
And you were just frontin'
Ay boy thanx 4 nothin'

I never knew enough about you babe
And I guess I only have myself to blame
Now I'm broken-hearted and shattering
But you were just playin' a game
Nothing anyone could do to convince me babe
I was living in a lie just a masquerade
Now I only know that I'll never be the same
But you were just playing a game

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
(Repeat)

Thanx 4 nothin'
You were just playin' a game

Everyday and everynight I stay by the phone
Never go no place so just in case you call I'll be home
Seems like all I do is think about our pseudo romance
While you're somewhere burnin' diesel
In the streets havin' laughs

Somebody say you know what I'm going thru
You been left with nothin'
Too much you can't count on one hand
Sing it 3,4,5,6
7 days a week you're drowning in tears
He was so insincere
Now you're laying up in bed
Every nite singing
Ay boy thanx 4 nothin'

I never knew enough about you babe
And I guess I only have myself to blame
Now I'm broken-hearted and shattering
But you were just playing a game
No, nothing anyone could do to convince me babe
I was living in a lie just a masquerade
Now I only know that I'll never be the same
But you were just playing a game
So thanx 4 nothin'
You was just frontin'
So thanx 4 nothin'

It's forever forever
Forever forever
It's forever forever
Forever forever
It's forever... It's forever
(Repeat)

Baby, no matter how long it be
We never lose that chemistry
And it's the strongest thing I've ever experienced
So sorry, whatever happened to empathy
I know y'all mother f!*#ers feel like we
When you're messin' with the one true lover
That makes you O.O.C.

Even though I been gone for a minute
It's wrong I admit it
Your love's so addictive that
I get so O.O.C.
Out of control baby
Although we've both moved on to another
Still long for each other, it's wrong but eternally
I get so O.O.C.
And that's just the way it be

It's forever forever
Forever forever
It's forever forever
Forever forever
It's forever...It's forever
(Repeat)

Baby everytime you touch me
Still get that electricity
And after all this time it don't even make no sense
So scusa mi
Te quiero mucho papi
Je ne sais pas mais c'est la vie
When you're messin' with the one true lover
That make you O.O.C.

Even though I been gone for a minute
It's wrong I admit it
Your love's so addictive that
I get so O.O.C.
Out of control baby
Although we've both moved on to another
Still long for each other, it's wrong but eternally
I get so O.O.C.
And that's just the way it be

It's forever forever
Forever forever
It's forever forever
Forever forever
It's forever...It's forever
(Repeat)

You out of control?
I'm out of control
Bounce on, bounce on
Just bounce on, just bounce on c'mon...

Even though I been gone for a minute
It's wrong I admit it
Your love's so addictive that
I get so O.O.C.
Out of control baby
Although we've both moved on to another
Still long for each other, it's wrong but eternally
I get so O.O.C.
And that's just the way it be

For the record, you ought to know
You wasn't thinking when you let me go
But whatever that's how it goes
Win some you lose some and others you hold in your heart
Why it gets so hard, tears you all apart
Even though you try to let go no, no, no
Suddenly you're here
And it's all surreal
And I don't know what the deal

Cause when I'm looking in your eyes
Feels like the first time
Give me one good reason why
We can't just press rewind
I don't want to spend my life
Thinking what it could've been like
If we had another try
One time
Like back in the day
That look on your face
Feels like the first time

Them other regularities they can't compete with mc
The whole entire world can tell
That you love yourself some me ☺
People see you now asking all about me and
How they
Always thought we were so "perfect" together
Let's rewrite the end
Start over again
It's gonna go better now

Cause when I'm looking in your eyes
Feels like the first time
Give me one good reason why
We can't just press rewind
I don't want to spend my life
Thinking what it could've been like
If we had another try
One time
Like back in the day
That look on your face
Feels like the first time

For the record...
"You'll always be a part of me" no matter what you do
For the record...
Can't nobody say I didn't give "My all" to you
For the record...
I told you "Underneath the stars"
That you "Belong" to me
And for the record...
It's obvious that we just "Can't let go" of us "Honey"

Cause when I'm looking in your eyes
Feels like the first time
Give me one good reason why
We can't just press rewind
I don't want to spend my life
Thinking what it could've been like
If we had another try
One time
Like back in the day
That look on your face
Feels like the first time

Looking in your eyes
Feels like the first time
Give me one good reason why
We can't just press rewind
I don't want to spend my life
Thinking what it could've been like
If we had another try

One time Like back in the days
That look on your face
Feels like the first time
Just for the record baby
Now you know

This is for my people who just lost somebody
Your best friend, your baby, your man or your lady
Put your hand way up hi
We will never say bye
Mamas, daddys, sisters, brothers, friends and cousins
This is for my people who lost their grandmothers
Lift your head to the sky
Cause we will never say bye

As a child there were them times
I didn't get it but you kept me in line
I didn't know why you didn't show up sometimes
On sunday mornings and I missed you
But I'm glad we talked through
All them grown folk things
Separation brings
You never let me know it
You never let it show
Because you loved me and obviously
There's so much more left to say
If you were with me today face to face

Never knew I could hurt like this
And everyday life rolls on I
Wish I could talk to you for a while
Miss you but I try not to cry
As time goes by

And it's true that you've reached a better place
Still I'd give the world to see your face
And be right here next to you
But it's like you're gone too soon
Now the hardest thing to do is say bye bye

Bye bye bye bye bye bye
Bye bye bye bye bye bye
Bye bye bye bye bye bye
Bye bye

And you never got a chance
To see how good I've done
And you never got to see me
Back at number one
I wish that you were here
To celebrate together
I wish that we could spend
The holidays together
I remember when you used to
Tuck me in at night
With the teddy bear you gave me
That I held so tight
I thought you were so strong
You'd make it through whatever
It's so hard to accept the fact
You're gone forever

I never knew I could hurt like this
And everyday life rolls on I
Wish I could talk to you for a while
Miss you but I try not to cry
As time goes by

And it's true that you've
Reached a better place
Still I'd give the world
To see your face
And be right here next to you
But it's like you're gone too soon
Now the hardest thing to do
Is say bye bye

Bye bye bye bye bye bye
Bye bye bye bye bye bye
Bye bye bye bye bye bye
Bye bye

This is for my peoples
Who just lost somebody
Your best friend, your baby,
Your man or your lady
Put your hand way up hi
We will never say bye
Mamas, daddys, sisters, brothers,
Friends and cousins
This is for my peoples
Who lost they grandmothers
Lift your head to the sky
Cause we will never say bye, bye

Never knew I could hurt like this
And everyday life rolls on I
Wish I could talk to you for a while
Miss you but I try not to cry
As time goes by

And it's true that you've
Reached a better place
Still I'd give the world
To see your face
And be right here next to you
But it's like you're gone too soon
Now the hardest thing to do
Is say bye bye
Bye bye bye bye bye bye...

When glory days turn to stormy nights
You must have been so petrified
— Didn't you? Didn't you feel so cold
You against the world in a losing fight
Captive of your demons inside
So you sought an enemy
— I'm not your enemy, He lives in you, you know it's true
Like times before to mock ignorantly
— But the Lord said love your enemy so just...
Take heed to the word it's time
Check proverbs 19:29 don't cry

I wish you well
I wish you well
I wish you well

I truly wanted solidarity
Still wearing my blinders back then
— So much I didn't see
I weep for what I dreamed we all could be
I'll keep you in prayer till the end
Still bruised still walk on eggshells
Same frightened child hide to protect myself
— Can't believe I still need to protect myself from you
But you can't manipulate me like before
Examine 1 john 4:4
And I wish you well
I wish you well
I wish you well
— Be strong in the Lord and the power of His might

If my shows of gratitude are minuscule
Inside your mind, sorry
There's only so much I can do
I love you and I did all that I could

Maybe when you're cursing me
You don't feel incomplete
But we've all made mistakes
Felt the guilt and self-hate
I know you've been there for plenty
Maybe still got love for me
But let him without sin cast the first stone brethren
But who remains standing then
Not you not I see Phillipians 4:9
— Put it into practice and the God of peace
Will be with you

So I wish you well
I wish you well
I wish you well
— He who the son sets free is free indeed

No weapon formed against me
Shall prosper
Surely God is my salvation
I will trust and not be afraid
The Lord the Lord, is my salvation
I will trust in Him
Yes, I know that I know that I know that I know
But I have had God's help to this very day
And so I stand here and testify to small and great alike
So the more you curse me the more you're blessing me
The word said it
Love your enemies
Do good to those who curse you
Pray for those who mistreat you
Psalms 129:2
They have greatly oppressed me from my youth
But they have not gained victory over me
— in Jesus' name
I wish you well
— He that keeps his mind state on the Lord
— He will keep them in perfect peace

They said I couldn't come no harder
Can't step on this heat, don't bother
They said I couldn't come no harder
Can't step on this heat, don't bother

I see you with your favorite dress on again
I guess you thought that you looked slick
But I already peeped
You got your tag tucked in, strugglin'
Tryin' to look cute in your best friend's boots
But they don't hardly fit
Why you back again
Tryin' to steal my man
I told you once before but you don't hear me
I ain't who you think I'm is
I will snatch off all this ish

You think I won't come out these heels and make it clear, ho? (I ain't the one)
You think I won't f*ck up my hair and take it, bitch?
Keep your hands off of my boo
Ain't no tellin' what I'll do
What makes you think you fly enough to take my man (Sure ain't the one)

All these J.O.'s want what's mine
But they done lost they minds
They on him like the ice-cream man
Night and day
Why I gotta fight to keep 'em all away
They cravin' but they know they can't have none
Obsessin' but they messin' with the wrong one
I ain't who you think I'm is
I will snatch off all this ish

You think I won't come out these heels and make it clear, ho? (I ain't the one)
You think I won't f*ck up my hair and take it, bitch?
Keep your hands off of my boo
Ain't no tellin' what I'll do
What makes you think you fly enough to take my man (Sure ain't the one)

They said I couldn't come no harder
Can't step on this heat, don't bother
They said I couldn't come no harder
Can't step on this heat, don't bother
They said I couldn't come no harder
Can't step on this heat, don't bother
They said I couldn't come no harder
Can't step on this heat, don't bother

You think I won't come out these heels and make it clear, ho? (I ain't the one)
You think I won't f*ck up my hair and take it, bitch?
Keep your hands off of my boo
Ain't no tellin' what I'll do
What makes you think you fly enough to take my man (I ain't the one)

Sure ain't the one
Sure ain't the one
If you mess with my man
I'ma be the one to break it to ya
Sure ain't the one

Repeat

It's 4 real, 4 real
4 real, 4 real
4 real, 4 real
It's 4 real, 4 real, 4 real, 4 real, 4 real
Its 4 real, 4 real

Baby it's, baby it's, 4 real, 4 real, 4 real
Baby it's, baby it's, 4 real, 4 real, 4 real
Baby it's, baby it's, 4 real, 4 real, 4 real
Baby it's, baby it's, 4 real, 4 real, 4 real

Sometimes you be blowing with my mind
If you were mine
I'd take my time with you
But on the low I'm shy
Though I front like I'm
So next level fly
With them other guys

Really I wanna reach out and just touch you
If you could only realize how much I'd like to
Come up knocking at your door
Give a girl the heave-hoe
And give a demonstration of what it's like

When it's 4 real, 4 real
Hundred percent 4 real
Hotter than cable TV
Like something out of your dreams
It's 4real, 4real
A million percent the deal
So I'll just keep doing me
And eventually you'll see
I'm 4 real, 4 real

Baby it's, baby it's, 4 real, 4 real, 4 real
Baby it's, baby it's, 4 real, 4 real, 4 real
Baby it's, baby it's, 4 real, 4 real, 4 real
Baby it's, baby it's, 4 real, 4 real, 4 real

Oh, my friends say I'm wasting my time on you
Tryin' to dissuade me with schemes
Wanna make you less than you seem
But I'm not that one, to listen to dumb chicks
That wanna be, where I'm gonna be

Really I wanna reach out and just touch you
If you could only realize how much I'd like to
Lay myself down next to you
Fall asleep watching cartoons
And wake you up with something good
Cause it's real

When it's 4 real, 4 real
Hundred percent 4 real
Hotter than cable TV
Like something out of your dreams
It's 4real, 4real
A million percent the deal
So I'll just keep doing me
And eventually you'll see
I'm 4 real, 4 real

Baby it's, baby it's, 4 real, 4 real, 4 real
Baby it's, baby it's, 4 real, 4 real, 4 real
Baby it's, baby it's, 4 real, 4 real, 4 real
Baby it's, baby it's, 4 real, 4 real, 4 real

Da Brat:
This ain't for play, for play
I been trynna figure it out
How to come at you off tay day
It's morning
And I wanna Shirley Murdock ya like As We Lay, lay
But on the low I'm shy like MJ
I don't know what to say, say, say
But I know who I wanna do, do, do
I'm 4 real, 4 real, that's you, you, you
You ain't never met nobody like me, me, me
I don't need Comcast inside, unlike TV
Let me demonstrate how it's supposed to be
Cause it's something you can't imagine, like outta ya dreams
Obviously people gon' hate on me
They don't want me to date on you
They don't want you with a paid woman
But they can't deny
That I'm a rida since day one

When it's 4 real, 4 real
Hundred percent 4 real
Hotter than cable TV
Like something out of your dreams
It's 4real, 4real
A million percent the deal
So I'll just keep doing me
And eventually you'll see
I'm 4 real, 4 real

Baby it's, baby it's, 4 real, 4 real, 4 real
Baby it's, baby it's, 4 real, 4 real, 4 real
Baby it's, baby it's, 4 real, 4 real, 4 real
Baby it's, baby it's, 4 real, 4 real, 4 real

When it's 4 real, 4 real
Hundred percent 4 real
Hotter than cable TV
Like something out of your dreams
It's 4real, 4real
A million percent the deal
So I'll just keep doing me
And eventually you'll see
I'm 4 real, 4 real

Baby it's, baby it's, 4 real, 4 real, 4 real
Baby it's, baby it's, 4 real, 4 real, 4 real
Baby it's, baby it's, 4 real, 4 real, 4 real
