My Dream

length: 3:23

My dream, my
Dream,

My, my , my
Dream ha he
Dream ha he
Now I got to wonder if you dreaming or not

'Cause everything seems so real
Shaggy (cha)

As my days grow old and my night grow cold
And É yearn for your tender love
My desires are strong Ï can't seem to hold on
And I want to feel your touch

Girl I love you so much it's way pass a crush
And they fantasy feels real
And when reality bites it cut likes a knife
And I wake up asking myself

[Chorus]
Brian & Tony Gold
Is it really real or is it a dream
Is it really real or is it a dream

Hear me now
Girl you know sexy that you have it all together
Tickle up me fancy with you sweet smelling feather
Smooth like a silk you could be rough like a leather

Don't wake me up Ï want the moment to last forever
(Ha) time goes by you know my loving gets better
Passionate moment probably think I would a never
Have you in a mi thoughts girl you si down and you wonder
Girl let this one last forever

[Chorus]

As I reminisce on the times I missed
And the warmth of your tender lips
Ï can't help but wonder if Ï wake
Will I find a love like this (yeah, yeah)

I guess it's fair to say that
You are the woman in my dream
Well that's the word or haven't you heard
Why don't you get up and help me sing

[Chorus]

Hear me, hear me
Is it a figment of my imagination
Or that me under sexual frustration
Right now me under nuff aggravation
Can't show it must protect man reputation

Now this is something I must ask a question
I would a really like fi know your intentions
In regards to my infatuation
Tell me bout the operation

[Chorus]

So come on, come on, come on, come on, and

(Hey, darling, give it up, give it up, give it up)
{Oh, oh, have it} Have another little bit of my heart now, baby

You know you got it if it makes you feel good
You play detective boo, want a new suit
Going through my pockets, searchin' for clues
Trying to follow me, you and your desperate crew

The end of this relationship was long over due
Now what you did was cute, girl, you spent the loot
Easy on the tears, oops, man, you soil my suit
Do yourself a favor and find a new recruit

And don't take it personal because you got the boot
You're out on the streets {Looking good} (Absolutely)
And you know deep down in you heart that that ain't right (Come on, come on)
And, oh, you never, never hear me when I cry at night {Oh...oh...oh...oh...oh...}

I tell myself, that I can stand the pain
But when you hold me in your arms (Yeah) I sing it again {Say it again}
So come on, come on, come on, come on (So what?) and

{Oh, oh, break it} Break another little bit of my heart now, honey (I don't think you know)
{Oh, oh, have it} Have another little bit of my heart now, baby

You know you got it if it makes you feel good
I can make you {Ooh}, you can make me {Ah}
Anyway you want it, baby, we can do it right
Jump out a the frying pan and straight down in a the fire

I'm Mr. Gigolo, your most notorious liar
Ex-amount of loving you get what me did require {Ooh...}

Blessing again to all mi DJ friend
Have a mek dem know you understand
Hard work and dedication

[Chorus]
You think a so it go no when a DJ work hard
Bus all him sweat fa sell a million record
While some people a relex a dem yard
Si down and a draw bad card
Well then the bag a lip service it nah help the plan
Have to try and elevate we young musicians
This is something a got to tell to everyone
So make we move as one

Wey we a do weh we try
Beg you listen to the Shags
Sit down and reminisce when me a DJ session
When promoter all a rob me and the singer Rayvon
Can't find taxi fare fi reach a Flatbush bottom
To beat the system me have to strong
Full of determination
Make dem know so that the DJ have to hit number 1
Through the grace of the almighty
The gift to write a song
My dream turn to reality when the Grammy touch me hand bim
No mek me settle down and pause fe a secound
Sting International, Robert Livingston, Gibraltor, Paul O Rossi
And the Ruff Entry Gang
Hot cold and freezing down a Long Island

[Chorus]

They say many are called but the chosen is few
Know why is it you want to disrespect the crew
And you don't like fe se another DJ go through
I remember whem dem a express them negative views
And a name me as the DJ most likely to lose
When dem si down and give me bad album review
Se me a foreign DJ can't make hit tune
When me hit number one them find a bag of excuse
Se me management a mafia and me color get me through
Now me hit them like a puzzle mek them can't find a clue
And through the big broad smile I and I man see through

[Chorus]

I remember when I man all a bleach a session
I remember when I man have no dollars in mi hand
I remember when I man all a fight fi Uncle Sam
I remember when I man all a face sentance
I remember all the DJ wey a chat mike fi long
Them time the dance use to ram and gunshot done session
When the DJ dem fight over the same mike stand
Red Foxx, Screey Dan Knight Rider, James Bond, Marshall One
And Corpral Tan, Mikey Slim, and Megga Man, Sleepy Wonder,
Floydie Wonder, GT, Pac Man, Mikey Jarrett, K-C Jockey and Bubbo
General, Sami Levy, Mr.Eazy Trevour Sparks, Rayvon
Can't forget Lloydy Stiff, Shinehead and Sluggy Rand dem de DJ a
The DJ who a de New York veteran

John Doe

length: 3:41
Lets do this one positively
This one goes out to me mislead
To preserve the youths of tomorrow
Today is the time to stop all the unnecessary blood shed
Life of a gangster is not sweet
And I'm coming to you straight from the streets
This could be a story about anybody
But let's call him John Doe

[Chorus]
A rude boy get murder cops were quicker on the draw
Another youth get murder a victim of the law
Rude boy get murder cops were quicker on the draw
Another youth get murder a victim of the law

Johnny was wicked ragamuffin and raw
Pull off a robbery but the cops he never saw
He got surrounded and they crushed him like a straw
John Doe went out like that
No, no, no
He heard them coming but he didn't get to flee
Wanted by the cops was living like a refugee
Do no evil think no evil try it and you will see
Bad boy and law man don't gree

[Chorus]

Wicker on the microphone that is where I get my vibe
Trying to hustle and make a dollar ain't got no 9 to 5
watching my back when going home and trying to stay alive
Got to strive, got to strive, got to strive
Johnny was a gangster well ain't life a *****
Robbing with his homies then they got ditched
Thought he was the man but he was rolling with a snitch
All he wanted to do was get rich

[Chorus]

Lets do this one positively
This one goes out to me mislead
To preserve the youths of tomorrow
Today is the time to stop all the unnecessary blood shed
Life of a gangster is not sweet
And I'm coming to you straight from the streets
This could be a story about anybody
But let's call him John Doe

[Chorus]

Thank You Lord

Thank you Lord for what you've done for me
To the Father I say

I go down on my knees and pray

Thank you Lord for every little thing yeah

Sing along, sing along

Now when I look back in the days of all the sweat and
all the dues I paid
I go down on my knees and pray
And give thanks to the Father for the blessings that he shined on me
I sing a little song of praise
Though I know that everybody ain't as fortunate as I may be
One more time I say
Words cannot express appreciation what he's done for me
Right now I say thank you Lord

[Chorus]

When I look back at all the things that the Father has done for me
I give thanks to the Lord and everyday i'm on my knee
Write the song now to please
No matter the color nor the creed
It was invested in me I'm here to do a good deed hey
I try to put a smile on your face
I write a simple song so it appeals to your taste
I tried to do the things that people appreciate
Well thanks for the music that they all embrace
And I say thank you Lord

[Chorus]

Say I'm in no competition
But I have made my decision
You can keep your opinion
I am just a calling on the wise man communion

[Chorus]

I thank the Lord once again for the power of the pen
Yes I be making ends to feed my family and my friends
Push out my Benz check your lens
Beg you ease up off my fence
Mi afi push out my mother in the latest gems

Have to feed the little mouth them in my stable
Hail up to the Big Yard label
And me say thank you Massa God that I am able
Give thanks to the Lord

[Chorus]

Said I want to thank you
