Intro

length: 1:31

You draw me in,
Every time I think I'm free you win.
Just like a sin,
When I know it's wrong but still begin.

Yes I know that I invite it,
I try to fight but like a fire I'm ignited.
You force the dark from my life I'm so inspired.
I heard the signs but now everything is quiet.

It's you,
I can't run, I can't run to you.
It's true,
I'll give up, I'll give up for you.

So when I'm scared so I stop crying,
Her pains are vicious but it must be that I like it.
Her world's divided but it still looks like a party.
When I'm alone that's when I found crying.

You draw me in,
Every time I think I'm free you win.
Just like a sin,
When I know it's wrong but still begin.

It's you,
I can't run, I can't run to you.
It's true,
I'll give up, I'll give up for you.

You draw me in,
Every time I think I'm free you win.
Just like a sin,
When I know it's wrong but still begin.

We control the dance floor.
We control the dance floor.
We control the dance floor.
Dance floor, dance floor

And before I got his name I thought it might be ok
To use for service to take some pain away

I know guys that talk around town
Girls like me want to keep it down

Hey what's the deal

Can't hook up when you call the shots me
But ya got things that I'd like to see
Soft porn doesn't do it for me

I don't like sex and drugs wit me

And one day on the train
I'd never leave me man stray
I don't deserve this
In more ways than I ever heard
But instead of bein' scared
His words just went straight to me head
And I got nervous and left my love away

I know guys that talk around town
Girls like me want to keep it down

I want to play a game
If someone come in, it don't matter, just the same (I like it)
Try something fun with me
Let's take our clothes off all over the balcony

[Chorus]
Let's get it on in public
Just let it go, I promise that you'll love it
Oh Daddy, don't you want to be my soldier? (yeah)
Ooh-ooh, let's get it on in public, ooh

But my erection is the case here (yeah)
I ain't got time to drive you all the way home
But instead I can slide you to a club bathroom (Okay)
Or a restaurant's men's room
Then I can zoom in your womb
We both get what we want (Okay), then we can assume
To doing what we was, smokin' that bud and chillin'
But first I got it up, before anything, you willing?
To win it, it's animal behavior
La chic, la freak-out, with a sexy beast ma (yeah?), who slays ya
This is for the mature who love the natural love
Making outdoors on the hood of your car (Oh, yeah)
Nas is good at it all when it comes to givin' it ?war?

We don't need hotel keys
We jump in the trunk and stain everything upside ya G-string

Millionaire

length: 3:45
producer: André 3000
performer: André 3000
writer: André Benjamin, Richard Walters, Doug E. Fresh, Kelis
I said, her from the city, so her got to be witty
She said, him from the country, so him got to be funky

Mama, I'm a millionaire, but I feel like a bum
Mama, I'm a millionaire, but I feel like the only one
I I I I woke up early this mornin'. I don't think why'all heard me
I woke up early this mornin'. I don't think why'all heard me
I woke up early this mornin', I don't think why'all heard me
I said I woke up early this mornin' but I still ain't see the sun
Uh uh uh oh uh oh (repeat three times)

Papa, I'm a millionaire
But Saks Fifth Ave. don't sell affection
(Saks Fifth Ave. don't sell affection)
Papa, I'm a millionaire
But I ain't moving in the right direction
Somethin' ain't right. I know

I am rich. He is rich. She is rich. We is rich
Oh, I am rich. He is rich and she is rich. We is rich (repeat twice)

Where there is cheese, there are rats
Wherever there are rats, there are cats
Wherever there are cats there are dogs
If you got the dogs, you got *****es
*****es always out to put their paws on your riches
If you got riches, you got glitches
If you got glitches in your life computer
Turn it off and then reboot her
Now you back on
Can't just put the cap on the old bottle once you pop it
That'll spoil it. Go on. Drink it and enjoy it
Mama, I'm a millionaire

What's a girl to do when she just has diamonds. No time. Just pay
What's a girl to do? Instead of me; it's you. Be true
What's a girl to do in a world of greed when you're in pain?
What's a girl to do when she's lost her long time friends
That's life

writer: Glenn Standridge, Bobby Ozuna, Kelvin Wooten, Taura Jackson, Raphael Saadiq
There's a wild streak in me
But it's only for you to see
Look to my heart, cause you know I'm ready to start
I guess I'm tryin to say, yes I've been waiting for this very day
Hope you're goin' too slow, 'cause we're bout to shoot the sun a-glow

How do we make it, I do know
If there was ever a problem they had to go
Sometimes it's kinda hard yes I do agree
See one plus you just equals me
They'll just watch us glow, they'll just watch us glow

Now in love something crazed
Exude from you're eyes when they are fixed on me & like the eternal flame
We have a fire that won't ever stop burning
There's a power in numbers baby
But two is deemed the perfect team
Me and you equals two
We will battle the masses baby, but we will claim the victory

How do we make it, I do know
If there was ever a problem they had to go
Sometimes it's kinda hard yes I do agree
See one plus you just equals me
They'll just watch us glow, they'll just watch us glow

Some said we would never change
Look at us now people tried to tear it all apart
Boy you stole my heart so quickly

Was that you?
Then I heard a voice
Sound like birds outside
Was that you?

(Shu-sugar-sugar honey ice-ice-tea)

[Chorus:]
But I bet you didn't know
You're my sugar honey iced tea, baby
You're just as sweet as can be
Your momma must be made of sugar
Your daddy makes honey
And that's what makes sense to me, oh!

(Shu-sugar-sugar honey ice-ice-tea)

Not sure if I was dreamin' of you and I
Was that true? Oh, I don't know
Smilin' and squeezin' in the bluest sky
Wasn't that true?

(Shu-sugar-sugar honey ice-ice-tea)

[Chorus:]

(Shu-sugar-sugar honey ice-ice-tea)

Open my arms
See my love's a window, it's open for you
Not to hurt you
Actually reverse effects like that in a Tide commercial
We'll be blowin' free in the wind
It's a sunny day, I sp your love and grin

(Shu-sugar-sugar honey ice-ice-tea)

(Hold it now...Hold it now)

[Repeat 3x]
Two steps to my love, baby
Two steps to my love

Open my arms
See my love's a window, it's open for you

And I don't want to have to hide my thoughts

I need attention, from you, it's just the little things we do, pay attention it's on you,
Cause I can't help it I just like it when you do, yeah.

But sometimes you forget and I get tired.
If he was out of sight and out of mind.
So darlin' listen and just make it right.

[Chorus:Repeat x2]

You make my heart monsoon baby, and we could make life through baby,
So take my hand and we'll glide the way.

[Chorus:Repeat x2]

Why would you follow now?

Back in time, come baby lay me down.

Rolling Through the Hood

producer: The Neptunes
writer: Chad Hugo, Pharrell Williams
Yesterday, I rolled through the hood
And I seen somethin'
And it hurt me
Yesterday, I rolled throught the hood

And I seen somethin'
And it hurt me
You were talkin' to that woman
Like you could show her somethin'

And I didn't know what to do
You pulled out your pen and paper
And I know it your number you gave her
I never thought this bad dream would come true

[Chorus]
Baby I want you to know
The suburbs to the ghetto
Joy is joy and pain is pain... pain
One day sooner than you know
We'll be livin' tomorrow
And we'll be laughin' about today... today

Yesterday, I rolled through the hood
And I seen somethin'
And it hurt me
Yesterday, I rolled throught the hood

And I seen somethin'
And it hurt me
You were talkin' to your boys
And though y'all didn't make noise

You tapped him and you pointed at this woman
Then she turned around
As if she'd been found
And all I know my heart started jumpin'

[Chorus]
Baby I want you to know
The suburbs to the ghetto
Joy is joy and pain is pain... pain
One day sooner than you know
We'll be livin' tomorrow
And we'll be laughin' about today... today

[Repeat: x2]
Maybe tomorrow... Maybe tomorrow
Maybe tomorrow... Maybe tomorrow

Beautiful baby don't you know you mean the world to me
The moon would lose the sky if you don't stay
Did I ever tell you that you were my sunshine?
So basically if you leave, there is no day

Yesterday, I rolled through the hood
And I seen somethin'
And it hurt me
Yesterday, I rolled through the hood

And I seen somethin'
And it hurt me
Instead of scorin' high in college
We're scorin' high in gargabe

And not rememberin' who we are
And not to mention...forgettin' who God is
Don't know that you're special
And God will never forget you
The world is used, watch what you do with it

[Chorus]
Baby I want you to know
The suburbs to the ghetto
Joy is joy and pain is pain...pain
One day sooner than you know
We'll be livin' tomorrow
And we'll be laughin' about today...today

Let's go...

I've been lovin' you for here long knowin' I was never clear
But I have no fear today 'cause I'm gonna say
What I gotta say, I don't want to play the role
Bustin' through the door, I'm gonna take you're heart fo' sure, oh

Put you're hands up in the air, it's a stick up
I'm gon' take you're heart from here, now let's fix up
Put you're hands in the air, in the air, in the air

I'm gonna play my cards from here
And take this gamble sure
My words are gonna fumble, but this beat is mighty humble
Ain't goin' nowhere, sure I'm scared but my life's a dare
And baby you just got so much flare, we'll be the perfect pair
I'm gonna share my mind with you, you've been blinded
My life's been blue, I'm takin' you, I'm takin' you

Put you're hands up in the air, it's a stick up
I'm gon' take you're heart from here, now let's fix up
Put you're hands in the air, in the air, in the air

Put you're hands up in the air, it's a stick up
I'm gon' take you're heart from here, now let's fix up
Put you're hands in the air, in the air, in the air
In the air, in the air, in the air

When I first met you, I wanted to wet you
Not a gun but a different content, sexual
You tried to run, I still get you
Steel metal not needed, a whole 'nother meaning
Don't want you're gold, want you're soul
Control you're heartbeatin', cause when I start squeezin' that muscle
That's the trigger, than I got you *****, in ya
Chopper spinners, got you're bodyguards wit cha
Diamond dog tag chain swingin', I had them thangs ringin'

This is a robbery, no one's gettin' free
Till that man, he comes with me

Put you're hands up in the air, it's a stick up
I'm gon' take you're heart from here, now let's fix up
Put you're hands in the air, in the air, in the air

Love is this marathon, I'm running for you baby
And you don't know me yet but faith is all I have, see

That you could set me free

Sure diamond ring, pretty things
A piece of mind, could be all mine
O this growing love affair
Has kept me on my feet

[Chorus]

Yesterday I had a glimpse of you
You looked me in my face
And just the other day you brushed right by me
I felt you reeling in my space

Tell me, do you think of me
And can you see me from the start
I swear I said I'd wait for you
But fate might change the score

[Chorus]
