TONE LOC"Loc'ed After Dark"
Allow me to display if I may, I'm ready to start(So am I)Well, okay, I've been held back for several yearsI had a few squabbles, never shedded no tearsBut like an uzi on the mic they call me Tone CaponeSlangin' down with your posse, if you're standin' alone
Cultivatin' all cities and tearin' up townsI treat you like a king goin' for a reboundWhen I'm on the mic, some say that I'm treacherousThey used to be the best, yeah, I bet you was
I never lost a battle, I ain't never been beatGo look on the sharp tombstones on the streetSuckas like you try to diss with nerveBut I slay you down and lay you down next to the curb
Now I'm all in flesh, blindin' the one that stareI drop you on the pavement, leave you parked in the rearI don't need no protection so here's a little lessonWhen I leave the house, insured my Smif-N-Wessun
A .357, cold bobbin' off 11It puts you in hell, or it could place you up in heavenYou lookin' for trouble, then it's trouble I sparkBut I'm tellin' you now, I get loc'ed after dark
Doin' it after darkDoin' it at the parkOh yeah, Loc gets hardOh yeah, [unverified] gets hard
Freaks never cease, just to say the leastI'll start mobbin' motherfuckers like a savage beastI'm takin' my turn to make the mic burnAnd when I'm teachin' class, there's a lesson to be learnedNow I battle posses and tribes alike
Never battle out of hate, I always battle for spiteCold jealous of me, the west side manThe leader of the brothers and killer of the KlanBut I don't give a shit 'cause my rhyme is legitCold put you in the yard and tie you up with my pit
'Cause when she starts to bite, that's when I will igniteThe views of the party taken to new heightsI consider myself to be a part of the eliteSuave and debonair because the rhyme is so sweet
Been causin' confusion, magician of illusionYou got a little, problem, here's a solutionA winner never quits and a quitter never winsSo why you just gamblin' with dubs and fiends?
Remember what I say, it sticks like Krazy GlueI'm tellin' you now, I'm not afraid of youLook up in my face, I'll tear your heart apartAnd like I told you before, what? I get loc'ed after dark
TONE LOC (suite)
MC's, comin' out like thunderI'll make you see why Stevie had to WonderIs he fiction or is he a myth?Naw, it's just a dope rapper, you know Tone Smith'Cause every time you hear my song your hands clap
The chosen one, puttin' LA on the mapWith no objection I plead my caseTone Loc, full capacity, leavin' out of spaceThe ace contender will never surrenderWhen I rock a show you always remember
The one and only, superior to manyMe losin' a battle? Naw, I can't remember anyAlthough, in the days, I may have lost oneWho the hell am I kiddin', I ain't been outdone
'Cause I'm the best, and I live out westAnd if you want a dope song, I'll play your requestIt don't take much to make a crowd liveJust some Boots and some droids and a little bit of slide
I step on stage and clear my hairMy next start, hmm, just a knock-up dareNo uzi my voice from the startBut you never know, why? 'Cause I get loc'ed after dark
Doin' it after darkDoin' it at the parkOh yeah, loc gets hardOh yeah, [unverified] gets hard

Sunny, yesterday my life was filled with rain.Sunny, you smiled at me and really eased the pain.The dark days are gone, and the bright days are here,My sunny one shines so sincere.Sunny one so true, I love you.
Sunny, thank you for the sunshine bouquet.Sunny, thank you for the love you brought my way.You gave to me your all and all.Now I feel ten feet tall.Sunny one so true, I love you.
Sunny, thank you for the truth you let me see.Sunny, thank you for the facts from a to c.My life was torn like a windblown sand,And the rock was formed when you held my hand.Sunny one so true, I love you.
Sunny, thank you for the smile upon your face.Sunny, thank you for the gleam that shows it's grace.You're my spark of nature's fire,You're my sweet complete desire.Sunny one so true, I love you.

JANE'S ADDICTION"been caught stealing"
I've been caught stealingOnce, when I was fiveI enjoy stealingIt's just as simple as thatWell, it's just a, simple factWhen I want somethingAnd I don't want to pay for itI walk right through the doorI walk right through the doorHey, all right!If I get by, it's mineMine all mine!(Hey)
Yeah my girl she's one tooShe'll go and get her skirtStick it in her shirtShe grabbed a razor for meAnd she, did it, just like thatWhen she wants something manShe don't want to pay for itShe'll walk right, through the doorWalk right through the doorHey all right!If I get by, it's mineMine all mine!(Let's Go)
We sat around the pileWe sat and laughedWe sat and laughed and waved it into the airAnd we, did it, just like thatWhen we want something manWe don't want to pay for itWe walk right, through the doorWalk right through the doorHey, all right!If I get by, it's mine!Mine, mine, mine, mine, mine, mineIt's MINE!
QUANNUM"I changed my mind"
Well I came into a young boy girl with no experienceAnd year in year out, we had our ups and downsBut I always took it seriousI made the jokes, I played the foolI took time made all the plansI know I told ya that we were supposed ta have something booked for this weekendBut I changed my mind
Chorus:I changed my mind, I changed my mind, I changed my mindAnd I changed my mind
Well it started getting cosy girlI let you control the reignsAnd despite what I knew to be trueWell I'd hoped that things would changeI'd even say I can't completely blameBut I hesitate cos of our situationsIn retrospect with the things you sayWould shift direction when put into actionBut I just let it whiz on byPeople say help me it's going a wryAnd I'd flip out and say that's not rightNow I see my shit's stacked highAnd I changed my mind
Well looking back now as a young man girlIn hindsight I regretI never listened to my better judgement so my blind sight got the best of meBut we'd live and learn what you did in turnMake me never ever settle for lessAnd what I deserve and once you mature girlYou'll always be second best
It really pains me to see things changeBut your limitations would have held me backThe things you say, try to under rate meThey were just a reflection of your self-respectBut now I let it whiz on byCan't tell me hell me can't flyKiss my wings you can't hypnotise meHear the MC a saying this bye byeI changed my mindBout this here relationship that you've become so complacentI've changed my mind you'd sacrifice everything we hadFor a low priceI changed my mind, plain and simpleNow tame and gentle girlChanged my mind I tried, I kept it quietBut now why the hell d'ya want to go and advertise

Ben Harper "Glory And Consequence"
I'm more afraid of livingthan I am scared to dieI'm more afraid of fallingthan I am of flying high
Every moral has a storyevery story has an endevery battle has its gloryand its consequence
I'm more afraid of lovingthan I am of being scornedbut I will keep on tryingthough I have been forewarned
I would rather me be lonelyand you have someone to holdI'm not as scared of dyingas I am of growing old.
Know you got to have that automatic car
Take you so fast and take you so far
Come down to lovin’ I bet you didn’t know
If you got no money, boy, you still can go
She’s my automatic girl
Yeah she’s the fastest thing around
Got them women that are slick and women that are lean
Women drinkin’ liquor, actin’ like a queen
Come down to lovin’ I bet you didn’t know
If you got no money, boy, you still can go
Shoulda seen my baby walkin’ ’round the town
Everybody knows she’s the baddest thing around
Come down to lovin’ I know you never thought
The automatic woman is the best in town

Little Charlie & the Nightcats"Don't Do It"
Verse 1:Hey I was under the weather and I wasn’t getting better so I went to get a physical checkAnd when I went to the doc it was a heck of a shock, he told me boy you are a miserable wreck.He said your liver’s all swollen and your stomach’s got a hole in it from drinking too much for too long.And there’s a good indication you’ve got bad circulation cause your blood pressure's almost goneAnd you got no reflexes in your solar plexus when I tap you on the top of your knee.He said your pulse ain’t steady and your lungs getting ready to collapse every time that you breathe.And at the rate you’re going all the tests are showing; boy you’ll never live to get old.But I came up with a plan to make you healthy again, but son you gotta do what you’re told.
If you dig it don’t do it And if you like it better leave it aloneAnd if it’s too much fun that outta clue you son that you’re probably doing something that wrongAnd I’m surprised at you and all the things you do. Boy, cause that ain’t what your body is forAnd if you think its bad so far wait till after this guitar, cause the doctor said a whole lot moreVerse 2:He told me cut out your boozing, quit them drugs you been using and don’t be smoking no cigarettes.And you know loving a stranger nowadays boy, man is just like playin Russian roulette.And get the grease out your diet, better broil it don’t fry it and don’t you eat no more Bar-B-Que.I wouldn’t tell you no lie, take this rule and apply. Now, son listen to what you better do.If you dig it don’t do it. And if you like it better leave it aloneAnd if it’s too much fun that outta clue you son that you’re probably doing something that's wrongAnd if it’s too good to you well don’t let it fool you, you’re playin in the danger zoneAnd I kept waitin and waitin for the man to finish, but that doctor just went on and on.Verse 3:And then he told me cut out all sweets and don’t be cramping your feet in them pointed-toe Italian shoes.And he said boy lookie here you gonna damage your ears playing them loud rocking rhythm and blues.And if a rabbit don’t eat it, buddy you don’t need it, that’s the rules on your new menuYou better get you a pen I ain’t gonna say it again cause there’s a whole lot more that you need to do.You need to lose some weight; you need to stand up straight, boy your posture is a terrible disgrace.You need to suck in your gut; you need to tuck in your butt; you need to clear them zits up off of your face.
If you dig it don’t do it and if you like it better leave it aloneAnd if it’s too much fun that outta clue you son that you’re probably doing something that's wrongAnd if it’s too good to you well don’t let it fool you, cause you’re playin in the danger zoneAnd I kept waitin and waitin for the man to finish, but that doctor just went on and on….. on and on….

'cause I'm tired of crying about the way you doAll you wanna doIs make a fool of meHoney I said it's overYou don't exist anymoreWell it's overYou don't exist anymore
Well I'm tired of crying about the way you doAll you wanna doIs make a fool of meWell I said it's overYou don't exist anymoreWell it's overYou don't exist anymore
