Classic Sade. Always good. This song charted in 1986 at only #49 in Britain and  #55 on the American R&B charts. It did not even make the American pop charts.

Lyrics:

This may come, This may come as some surprise
but I miss you
I can see through all of your lies
but still I miss you
he takes her love, but it doesn’t feel like mine
he tastes her kiss, her kisses are not wine, they’re not mine

he takes, but surely she can’t give what I’m feeling now
she takes, but surely she doesn’t know how

Is it a crime
Is it a crime
that I still want you
and I want you to want me too

My love is wider, wider than Victoria Lake
My love is taller, taller than the empire state

It dives and it jumps and it ripples like the deepest ocean
I can’t give you more than that, surely you want me back

Is it a crime
Is it a crime
that I still want you
and I want you to want me too

My love is wider than Victoria Lake
Taller than the empire state

It dives and it jumps
I can’t give you more than that, surely you want me back

Is it a crime
Is it a crime
that I still want you
and that I want you to want me too

It dives and it jumps and it ripples like the deepest ocean
I can’t give you more than that, surely you want it back.

Tell me, is it a crime?

I was going to do “100 Yard Dash” (2009) but got kind of sidetracked! This is that video with the television heads.

Met this girl walking in the ghetto
(Uh huh, uh huh)
Looking good but looking down
(What’s you say, come on by)
Said she needed inspiration
(What’d you say)
I said, ‘Get yo shit cause we’re goin uptown’
(Uptown baby, uptown, say what)
I could tell she was feelin better
(Yeah, yeah come on, yeah)
When she got inside the car
(When she got inside the car)
She was a dark-skinned girl with pretty cornrows
(uh uh)
She was doin her best to try to hide her scars
(Say come on now, what you say now)

[Raphael Saadiq]
2 – I don’t really care
About that there, just get involved
Boy you, makin me feel, uh oh so real
Just get involved

[Raphael Saadiq]
Everytime i take you around friends
(Come on, everytime I take you around friends)
I catch them looking at you love
(Lookin’ at you love, lookin’ at you love like that)
You know it never ever bothered me
Because i know that i’m the one you’re thinking of

Repeat 2

[Q-Tip]
Word up, word up, word up yo
Raphael just stopped in his tracks
Get involved and make it into the pack
You know the way that you present your thing
We in the belly so we might as well cling
The way you shine shorty you da shit
The princess in the pauper pit
We may be poor but we rich in soul
Just get involved and get in control
Just get involved and get in control
You know the way we do it, yo we roll

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Merry Christmas!

Lyrics:

Verse 1: Run

It was December 24 on Hollis after the dark
My man Santa saw a rabbi and gave the strangest remark
He said that giving was his living and I had to take part
So I grabbed a bag of goodies and I hopped up on his cart
I laced the pockets of the poor and gave the hoodie a play
Dropped some dollars up on Hollis and I went on my way
I hear your jingle Mr. Kringle peep the single, my man
so Santa hit a brotha off and come as quick as you can!

[chorus]
Santa Baby
Just slip a Benzo under the tree for me
A ’98 convertible, light blue
I’m looking for a fly guy, like you
So hurry down the chimney tonight…

Verse 3: Ma$e

Now all Mase know
When its eight twenty-four
He be looking at the door for the ho ho ho
Cause I know
When theres a christmas uptown
Ain’t no chimney for santa to come down

Verse 4: Puff Daddy

Now to me, PD I had alot
Appreciated everything that I got
Though I used to take my pops
Who aint caught me shaking the box
Cause I knew I couldn’t wait till it turned 12 o’clock

Verse 5: Snoop Doggy Dogg

Cookies and Milk
Satin and Silk
I’m chillin in the living room, wrapped in a quilt
I’m waiting on this fat Red Suit wearing-comparing
My gifts to my homeboy next door to me
A gift here, none there, but who cares
My little sister needs a comb just to braid her nappy hair
Bbut here we go again waiting on the enemy
To slide down the chimney
Look here, that ain’t reality

[chorus]
Santa Baby
Just slip a Benzo under the tree for me
A ’98 convertible, light blue
I’m looking for a fly guy, like you
So hurry down the chimney tonight…

Verse 6: Salt & Pepa

Santa Baby, are you really real?
Chris Kringle
Let me see you make my pockets jingle (ching ching)
We need some jobs in the ghetto
Too much gangbanging where kids are playin
I hear the church bells ringing
On christmas eve
I believe
Jesus-calling me
Forget the gifts and the shopping lists
And the new kicks
Your just falling for tricks
(you better praise him)

[chorus]
Santa Baby
Just slip a Benzo under the tree for me
A ’98 convertible, light blue
I’m looking for a fly guy, like you
So hurry down the chimney tonight…

Verse 7: Fredro Starr

It’s the gritty-the grimy
The low down, the shifty
Yo Sticky, christmas time in the city
Late night, stars are bright
We gettin rocked!
With the 50 St. Nicholas
Start rippin this

Verse 8: Sticky Fingaz

Its the Grinch who stole christmas
Climbin down ya chimney
Kids open up they gifts
They all gonna be empty
Just like mine was
I hate to say it
But if I wasnt a boy I wouldnt have had nuthin to play wit!

Verse 9: Keith Murray

On December 25th I knew I wasn’t getting jack
when I saw Santa Claus on the corner buying crack
I ran up on him with the (blur) and asked him “yo whats up with that?”
He said “there aint no christmas kid” and I can’t get him back
Back in the days, Christmas was deep
My moms put presents under the tree while I played sleep
And peeped ha! Santa Claus never gave me nuthin
Seen them mad faces, lying and frontin
So do some good to the ghetto, Mr. Chris Kringle
Come and stay awhile, kick it with God’s Angel
Take and acknowledge my wisdom and understand
That Santa Claus is a black man
word up

[chorus 2 times]
Santa Baby
Just slip a Benzo under the tree for me
A ’98 convertible, light blue
I’m looking for a fly guy, like you
So hurry down the chimney tonight

Remarks:

Roberta Flack’s cover of Kitty White’s 1962 song. An utter classic, what can I say?

Lyrics:

The first time, ever I saw your face,
I thought the sun rose in your eyes.
And the moon and stars were the gifts you gave,
To the dark and the endless skies, my love.
To the dark and the endless skies.

And the first time, ever I kissed your mouth,
I felt the earth move in my hand.
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird,
That was there at my command, my love.
That was there at my command, my love.

And the first time, ever I lay with you,
I felt your heart, so close to mine.
And I knew our joy would fill the earth,
And last ’till the end of time, my love.
And it would last ’till the end of time, my love.

The first time ever I saw your face.
Your face.
Your face.
Your face.
Your face.

Remarks:

K-Ci and Jojo’s remake of the old Bobby Womack song. I could not stand Jodeci back then, but I love this song.

Lyrics:

I just wanna dedicate this song
to all the lovers in the world tonight
and I expect that to be the whole world
because everybody needs someone
or something to love

Yeah
when it’s cold outside
girl, who are you holding
you’ll be holding me
well, well, well, well, well
said if y’all don’t mind
can I talk about this woman I have
she’s always complaining about the things she ain’t got
and the things her girlfriend’s got
but lady I will let you know
I can’t be in two places at one time

If you think you’re lonely now
ooh yeah
wait until tonight, girl
oh, you better wait til tonight
yeah, baby
wait until tonight girl
if you think you’re lonely now
wait until tonight girl
I’ll be long gone, yes I will
wait until tonight, girl
you better wait until tonight

When skeletons come out of your closet
and chase you all around the room
memories sound like a ghost
and if you is scared
talk to me, baby

If you think you’re lonely now
wait until tonight, girl
wait until tonight
wait until tonight baby(yeah yeah)
wait until tonight girl
you better wait until tonight
if you think you’re lonely now
wait until tonight girl
do you believe me baby

Ain’t it funny how tables turn
when things ain’t goin your way
when love walks out, pain walks in
you can’t help to say

If you think you’re lonely now
wait until tonight, girl
if you think you’re lonely now
you better wait girl, yeah
wait until tonight, girl
if you think you’re lonely now
if you think you’re lonely now
hold on, ooh yeah
wait until tonight, girl
ooh, yeah

I wanna testify
I wanna testify
I wanna testify to ya
I just got one thing to say
if you think you’re lonely now

If you think you’re lonely now
baby, yeah
wait until tonight, girl

Remarks:

From 1995, this is Faith Evans’s very first single. You can tell because in the video version (not this live version) Biggie Smalls introduces her like we have never heard of her before. The song went to #4 on the R&B charts. I like this live version way better than the video version.

Lyrics:

I remember the way, you used to love me
I remember the days, you used to love me

You don’t appreciate the time
I put into this love affair of ours baby
I couldn’t let you walk around
Thinking it’s alright to let me down

I remember the way, you used to love me
I remember the days, you used to love me

I gave you all my precious love
And anything you wanted from me
You didn’t hear me calling out
Calling for your warm affection after all this time
You can’t deny what I’m feeling is real
And I stood around, stood by your side
Went through all the hurt and pain
And you turned and walked away

I remember the way, you used to love me
I remember the days, you used to love me

Can’t give up on the way you used to give it to me
Give it to me
What a feeling it’s for real

I remember the way, you used to love me
I remember the days, you used to love me

You didn’t hear me calling out
And that’s not what love’s about
I remember you used to love me
You used to love me every day
Now your love has gone away
I remember I remember

I remember the way, you used to love me
I remember the days, you used to love me

Remarks:

Not sure if this one is for the ages, but I love the Corvette.

I was thinking maybe she was Jamaican American. As it turns out she is Guyanese Canadian.

The beginning of this song is almost the same as the beginning of “(Hey There) Lonely Girl” (1975) by the Softones.

Lyrics:

Oh yaahh I’ve got trouble with my friends
Trouble in my life
Problems when you don’t come home at night
But when you do you always start a fight
But I can’t be alone, I need you to come on home
I know you messin around, but who the hell else is gonna hold me down
Ooooh I gotta be out my mind to think it’s gonna work this time
A part of me wants to leave, but the other side still believes
And it kills me to know how much I really love you
So much I wanna ooh hoo ohh to you hoo hoo
Should I grab his cell, call this chick up
Start some shhhh then hang up
Or I should I be a lady
Oohh maybe cause I wanna have his babies
Ohh yah yahh cause I don’t wanna be alone
I don’t need to be on my own
But I love this man
But some things I can’t stand ohhhh
I’ve gotta be out my mind
To think it’s gonna work this time
A part of me wants to leave but the other half still believes
And it kills mee to know how much I really love you
So much I wanna oohh hoo ohhh, to you hoo hooo

Remarks:

I am not quite sure what this song is about, with pimps swinging axes and the lighting of soul flames, but it still sounds good all these years later. It sounded much better back in ancient times, like in the 1980s, when I listened to it on my sister’s record player: you turn over the record and this was the first song on side two of “The Wild, the Innocent and the East Street Shuffle” (1973). After saying “Puerto Rican Jane” a million times (well, twice) and then some good electric guitar playing it all dies away and all that is left is just the piano, playing almost one note at a time. And then right after – right after – that very last note on the piano it bursts into “Rosalita”. It is like Christmas or sex: the anticipation is half the joy.

Lyrics:

Spanish Johnny drove in from the underworld last night
With bruised arms and broken rhythm in a beat-up old Buick
But dressed just like dynamite
He tried sellin’ his heart to the hard girls over on Easy Street
But they sighed “Johnny it falls apart so easy and you know hearts these days are cheap”
And the pimps swung their axes and said “Johnny you’re a cheater.”
Well the pimps swung their axes and said “Johnny you’re a liar”
And from out of the shadows came a young girl’s voice said: “Johnny don’t cry”
Puerto Rican Jane, oh won’t you tell me what’s your name.
I want to drive you down to the other side of town where paradise ain’t so crowded, there’ll be action goin’ down on Shanty Lane tonight
All them golden-heeled fairies in a real bitch fight
Pull .38s and kiss the girls good night

Oh good night, it’s alright Jane
Now let them black boys in to light the soul flame
We may find it out on the street tonight baby
Or we may walk until the daylight maybe

Well like a cool Romeo he made his moves, oh she looked so fine
Like a late Juliet she knew he’d never be true but then she really didn’t mind
Upstairs a band was playin’, the singer was singin’ something about goin’ home
She whispered, “Spanish Johnny, you can leave me tonight but just don’t leave me alone”

And Johnny cried “Puerto Rican Jane, word is down the cops have found the vein”
Oh them barefoot boys they left their homes for the woods
Them little barefoot street boys they say homes ain’t no good
They left the corners, threw away all their switchblade knives and kissed each other good-bye

Johnny was sittin’ on the fire escape watchin’ the kids playin’ down the street
He called down “Hey little heroes, summer’s long but I guess it ain’t very sweet around here anymore”
Janey sleeps in sheets damp with sweat, Johnny sits up alone and watches her dream on, dream on
And the sister prays for lost souls, then breaks down in the chapel after everyone’s gone

Jane moves over to share her pillow but opens her eyes to see Johnny up and putting his clothes on
She says “Those romantic young boys
All they ever want to do is fight”
Those romantic young boys
They’re callin’ through the window
“Hey Spanish Johnny, you want to make a little easy money tonight?”
And Johnny whispered:

Good night, it’s all tight Jane
I’ll meet you tomorrow night on Lover’s Lane
We may find it out on the street tonight baby
Or we may walk until the daylight maybe

Oh, good night, it’s all right Jane
I’m gonna meet you tomorrow night on Lover’s Lane
Oh, we may find it out on the street tonight baby
Or we may walk until the daylight maybe

Good night, it’s all right Jane
I’ll meet you tomorrow night on Lover’s Lane
Now we may find it out on the, on the street tonight baby
Or we may have to walk until the morning light maybe

Remarks:

I had completely forgotten about this song because it does not appear on any of my Janet Jackson albums. Lisa Keith is the lead singer. It “sounds” like a Janet Jackson song – like maybe something towards the end of “Rhythm Nation 1814” (1989) – because it was produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis at about the same time.

This song reached #7 on the R&B charts in 1987. You may have heard it being sampled in other songs.

Lyrics:

Making love
in the rain,
I can’t believe the joy it brings me.

Making love all alone,
I hear the rain on my window.

It’s just a little thing,
but it means so much to me.

Our bodies together,
while the rain plays a melody.

Every raindrop makes think of you.
(Wishing you were close to me)

There is nothing that I’d rather do than…
Making love in the rain,
I can’t believe the joy it brings me.

When we’re done – all alone,
I hear the rain on my window.

When it’s stormy outside,
It’s warm in my heart,
with you in my arms.

And when your away from me,
I wish it would rain,
’cause its always the same

Every raindrop makes think of you.
(Wishing you were close to me)

There is nothing that I’d rather do than…
Making love in the rain,
I can’t believe the joy it brings me.
(I can’t believe)

When I’m here all alone,
I hear the rain on my window.
(On my window)

Making love in the rain,
I can’t believe the joy it brings me.

Making love all alone,
I hear the rain on my window.
(On my window, I hear the raindrops fall)

Every raindrop makes think of you.
(Wishing you were close to me)

There is nothing that I’d rather do than…
(Nothing that I’d rather do than)
Making love in the rain,
I can’t believe the joy it brings me.
(Making love. oohh making love)

When we’re here all alone,
I hear the rain on my window.
(On my window, I hear it rain)

Making love in the rain,
I can’t believe the joy it brings me
(ooohhhh, yeah)

All alone I hear the rain.
(I hear the rain)

My love here comes the rain.
My love here comes the rain.
My love here comes the rain.
My love here comes the rain.

Remarks:

This is my favourite Anita Baker song.  Even when I first heard it it seemed like a song I had known for years. It only made it to #8 on the R&B chart.

At the very beginning of the video you can see Donnie Simpson, the host of “Video Soul” on BET in the 1980s and 1990s. The video shows scenes of Detroit.

Lyrics:

Flashbacks of the times we’ve had
Some made us laugh some made us sad
We used to break up to make up
All the fun that came from those love games
Oh well, I think I need someone new
Oh, it just won’t do, because I think about you baby

From beginning to end 365 days of the year
I want your same ole love
All I want to do is keep on loving you
I want your same ole love

There’s a reason I feel this way
All the things you do, well it might be the things that you say
Your love never changes
It’s like a picture in a frame, and it remains the same

Your undying love for me
Oh it keeps me strong, keeps me holding on

From beginning to end 365 days of the year
I want your same ole love
All I want to do is keep on loving you
I want your same ole love

Slowly, love me
All is forsaken, I love the love we’re making
Cause it’s truly lovely
I’ll never leave you, you’ll know I need you baby

From beginning to end 365 days of the year
I want your same ole love
All I want to do is keep on loving you
I want your same ole love

From beginning to end 365 days of the year
I want your same ole love
All I want to do is keep on loving you
I want your same ole love

Prince: Scandalous

Remarks:

This is my favourite Prince song. Despite that for a long time I could not find it on YouTube because I forgot the name of it! Instead I found it through the YouTube channel of Mackaveli420, whose musical tastes are close to mine, at least when it comes to the 1980s.

Lyrics:

Come. Closer.
Feel what U’ve been dyin’ 4
Don’t be afraid, baby
Touch it and explode
Understand, understand that I love U
But more than that – I want U
Everybody always told me
“Good things come 2 those who wait”
But I’ve got so much on the menu
I just can’t wait, I just can’t, I can’t wait baby
I can’t wait baby
I can wrap my legs around U girl
Cuz sugar, U know U’re just the kind of lover
That I’ve been looking 4
2 night why don’t we skip all the 4 play, mamma
And just get down here on the floor

Scandalous
I’m talkin’ about U and me
Marvelous – baby, baby, can’t U see
Anything U’ve ever dreamed of
I’m willing 2 be
2 night it’s gonna be scandalous
Cuz 2 night I’m gonna be your fantasy

My dearest, my dearest

(Whisper) Whisper a question
With my body (body) I’ll scream a reply
Anything’s acceptable
Just ask me and I’ll try it
2 hell with hesitation
2 hell with the reasons why

Scandalous
I’m talkin’ about U and me
Marvelous – baby, baby, can’t U see
Anything U’ve ever dreamed of
I’m willing 2 be
2 night it’s gonna be scandalous
Cuz 2 night I’m gonna be your fantasy

Baby, baby, baby

Oh girl, the things U make me do!
Genius is the only way 2 describe U
Anything U’ve ever dreamed of baby
Just ask me – I’ll do, I’ll do,
I’ll do it 4 U baby

Anything at all
Spirits rise and spirits fall
Anything U ever dreamed off, I’m willing 2 be
2 night is gonna be scandalous
Cuz 2 night I’m, 2 night I’m gonna be your fantasy!

Scandalous
I’m talkin’ about U and me
Marvelous – baby, baby, can’t U see
Anything U’ve ever dreamed of
I’m willing 2 be
2 night it’s gonna be scandalous
Cuz 2 night I’m gonna be your fantasy

Scandalous, marvelous

Remarks:

This song was later covered by Kelly Price in 2000, but I  like this version better. It is the original, going to #5 on the R&B charts in 1986. Zapp’s Roger Troutman hired Murdock as a backing singer. His brother Larry and Zapp guitarist Billy Beck wrote the song. Troutman appeared in this space last month with “I Want to be Your Man” (1987).

Lyrics:

It’s morning,
and we slept the night away~
It happened,
now we can’t turn back the hands of time
(oh no)

Yes we’ve stolen this moment,
We forgot to face, one simple fact
We both belong~ to someone else
As we slept, the night away

It’s morning,
sunlight shines across your sleeping face (uh huh)
A new~ day,
brings reality that we must go our
Se~parate way
What a lovely night, we had (yeah yeah)
As we shared each other’s love
We forgot about all the pain we’d cause
as we slept the night away

As we lay
We forgot about tomorrow as we lay (mmhmm, hey hey)
As we lay
We didn’t think about the price we’d have to pay( oh no, no no no no no no no)

It’s morning
And now it’s time for us to say goodbye
Goodbye baby
you’re lea~ving me,
I know you got to hurry home to face your wi~fe, whoa
I would never never want to hurt her no
She would never understand
You belonged to me for
just one night
as we slept the night away

(whoa) (mmmmm) (whoa)

I would never never want to hurt her no
She would never understand
You belonged to me for
just one night
as we slept the night away

As We Lay
We forgot about tomorrow
As we lay
We didn’t think about the price we’d have to pay…oh no hey

We should have counted up the cost
but instead we got lost
in the second, in the minute, in the hour
hey hey, hey as we lay
we forgot about tomorrow, as we lay
whoa~~~

It’s morning (it’s morning) (oo oo)
It’s morning (it’s morning) (whoa~~)
It’s morning (whoa~~)

Recommended by commenter Soul: “Listen, when Mos Def writes lyrics like this, how can anyone tell me it’s crap?” (More).

Lyrics:

[Jill Scott]
Love rain down on me, on me, down on me
Love rain down on me, on me, down on me
Love rain down on me, on me, down on me
Love rain down on me, on me, down on me

Met him on a Thursday, sunny afternoon
Cumulus clouds, 84 degrees
He was brown, deep
Said he wanted to talk about my mission
Listen to my past lives (Word?)
Took me on long walks to places where butterflies rest easy
Talked about Moses and Mumia
Reparations, blue colors, memories of shell-topped Adidas
He was fresh, like summer peaches
Sweet on my mind like block parties and penny candy
Us was nice and warm, no jacket, no umbrella, just warm
At night we would watch the stars
And he would physically give me each and every one
I felt like cayenne pepper, red, hot, spicy
I felt Dizzy and Sonya and heaven and Miles between my thighs
Better than love, we made delicious
He me had, had me he
He made me tongue-tied
I could hear his rhythm in my thoughts
I was his sharp, his horn section
His boom and his bip
And he was my love

Love rain down on me, on me, down on me

The rain was falling and, and slowly and sweetly and stinging my eyes
And I could not see that he became my voodoo priest
And I was his faithful concubine
Wide open, wide, loose like bowels after collard greens
The mistake was made
Love slipped from my lips
Dripped down my chin and landed in his lap
And us became new
Now me non-clairvoyant and in love
Made the coochie easy and the obvious invisible
The rain was falling
And I couldn’t see the season changing
And the vibe slipping off it’s axis
Our beautiful melody became wildly staccato
The rain was falling and I could not see
That I was to be plowed and sowed and fertilized
And left to drown in his sunny afternoon
Cumulus clouds, 84 degrees, melody

Love rain down on me, on me, down on me
Love rain down on me, on me, down on me

[Mos Def]
I stretched my arms towards the sky like blades of tall grass
The sun beat in between my shoulders like carnival drums
I sat still in hopes that it would help my wings grow
So then I would really be fly
And then she arrived
Like day break inside a railway tunnel
Like the new moon, like a diamond in the mines
Like high noon to a drunkard, sudden
She made my heart beat in a now-now time signature
Her skinny canvas for ultraviolet brushstrokes
She was the sun’s painting
She was a deep cognac color
Her eyes sparkled like lights along the new city
She lips pursed as if her breath was too sweet
And full for her mouth to hold
I said, “You are the beautiful, distress of mathematics.”
I said, “For you, I would peel open the clouds like new fruit.”
And give you lightning and thunder as dowry
I would make the sky shed all of its stars like rain
And I would clasp the constellations across your waist
And I would make the heavens your cape
And they would be please to cover you
They would be pleased to cover you
May I please cover you, please.

Remarks:

One of my favourite songs these days. This went to #1 on the R&B charts in 2007.

Lyrics:

OOOhh yeah oh yeah
Oooh, remember
Oooohh i remember,and i wanna know

Where were you, when I said I loved you
And where were you, when I cried at night
Waiting up, couldn’t sleep without you
Thinking of, all the times we shared

I remember when my heart broke
I remember when I gave up loving you
My heart couldn’t take no more of you
I was sad and lonely

I remember when I walked out
I remember when I screamed I hated you
But somehow deep inside, still loving you, sad and lonely

No one knew, all the pain I went through
All the love, I saved deep in my heart for you
Didn’t know, where I would go, where I would be
But you made me leave, and plus my heart it just
It just kept telling me so

ooooooooooo

I remember when my heart broke
I remember when I gave up loving you
My heart couldn’t take no more of you, I was sad and lonely
I remember when I walked out
I remember when I said I hated you
But somehow deep inside, still loving you, so sad and lonely

There was nowhere else to go, oh
Nobody else, to turn to, no
For the rest of my life, I promise myself I
Will love me first, genuinely

I remember when my heart broke
I remember when I gave up loving you
My heart couldn’t take no more of you
I was sad and lonely

I remember when I walked out
I remember when I said I hated you
But somehow deep inside, still loving you, sad and lonely
I remember when I walked out
I remember when I gave up loving you
My heart couldn’t take no more of you, so sad and lonely

I remember when I stormed out
I remember when I gave up loving you, I was sad and lonely

Remarks:

This is one of my wife’s favourite songs these days – she plays it to death.

Lyrics:

Looking back on the years you see
It was you and me but I gave too much you see
And now it seems you’ve grown tired
And wanna walk away, but you feel obliged to stay
We break up and make up
And everything would be brand new
We gotta face up there ain’t no make up
I said there’s nothing left to do, and

Don’t stay, if you don’t wanna stay
Baby I’ll be okay, believe me when I say
I’ma be alright
Don’t stay, if you don’t wanna stay
Baby I’ll be okay, believe me when I say
I’ma be alright

I’d rather be without you
Livin’ with you is too hard to take
And I know you don’t feel the same
Cos it’s written, it’s written, it’s written all over your face
Remember when we break up and make up
And everything would be brand new
We got to face up there ain’t no make up
I said there’s nothing left to do, and

Don’t stay, if you don’t wanna stay
Baby I’ll be okay, believe me when I say
I’ma be alright
Don’t stay, if you don’t wanna stay
Baby I’ll be okay, believe me when I say
I’ma be alright

It’s so hard what I got to do, oh
I gotta make you leave, for both me and you
And it’s so crazy how things have changed
Cos we ain’t the same, and

Don’t stay, if you don’t wanna stay
Baby I’ll be okay, believe me when I say
I’ma be alright
Don’t stay, if you don’t wanna stay
Baby I’ll be okay, believe me when I say
I’ma be alright

I’ma be alright
