01. Breezy

Are you ready?
Are you ready?

I get shoppin sprees off the heezy
I get dough to blow, please believe me
Don't want the one on one
Take it easy
You're just the jump-off
I'm his breezy
I'm the one who knows him the best
I'm his one and only, nothin less
You don't wanna take it there
Don't you see
He told me he loves me
Calls me his breezy

Let me break it down, break it down
I got it on lock and
I think you better stop
I heard you been checkin for my boo
Who do you think he is, busy giving your best shot
But you couldn't get a call back
And even after all that
Caught you at the mall for a throwback
That's big pimpin but you
Wouldn't listen, he's mine
Not yours but a fall back

I get shoppin sprees off the heezy (Off the heezy)
I get dough to blow, please believe me (Please believe me)
Don't want the one on one
Take it easy
You're just the jump-off
I'm his breezy
I'm the one who knows him the best
I'm his one and only, nothin less
You don't wanna take it there
Don't you see
He told me he loves me
Calls me his breezy (I'm his breezy)

Now I'mma let ya know to your face
You needa hit the brakes
Your about to make a major mistake
I'm gonna call you out, no doubt
Let me spell it out
Baby you ain't nothin but a fake
Cause I know what you want
And you ain't gotta front
So go ahead and pull another stunt
Remember that it's me that he loves
All he's thinkin of
I'm the only one that he wants

I get shoppin sprees off the heezy
I get dough to blow, please believe me
Don't want my one on one
Take it easy
You're just the jump-off
I'm his breezy
I'm the one who knows him the best
I'm his one and only, nothin less
You don't wanna take it there
Don't you see
He told me he loves me
Calls me his breezy

Cause what we have is so real
It's more than just dollar bills
This livin lavish
Wouldn't matter if I didn't have his heart
Sorry shorty, he's mine
Better luck next time
?? you can have it
But I'll still be his girl

I get shoppin sprees off the heezy
I get dough to blow, please believe me
Don't want my one on one
Take it easy
You're just the jump-off
I'm his breezy
I'm the one who knows him the best
I'm his one and only, nothin less
You don't wanna take it there
Don't you see
He told me he loves me
Calls me his breezy

I get shoppin sprees off the heezy
I get dough to blow, please believe me
Don't want my one on one
Take it easy
You're just the jump-off
I'm his breezy
I'm the one who knows him the best
I'm his one and only, nothin less
You don't wanna take it there
Don't you see
He told me he loves me
Calls me his breezy



02. Not That Kinda Girl

Yeah-eahhh, hmmmm
yeaaahhh

[Chorus:]
I'm not your every day, around the way
Don't go bar-hoppin', chillin' on the block
On a cell phone frontin',
Never that, cuz I'm not that kinda girl
I need to know how you roll
And how you get down no drama
Money in the bank
Take me home and meet your mama
Can you handle that?
Cuz I'm that kinda girl
I'm that kinda girl

[Verse 1:]
Boy you aint impressin' me
With your jewelry, your designer clothes
Or the games that you try to play
Think you need to know, I got my own
Dont need you for your dough
Hearin' me, maybe then we can flow, let me know
Make me smile, maybe we can chill
Keep it real, show me something I can feel
Cause I'm not your average ordinary type
Could you be that kinda guy I like?

[Chorus]

[Verse: 2]
Everytime I be up at the spot, chilling with my crew
We'll be hanging out, get in a little late
You start bugging out
I dont think it's fair
You don't like the clothes I wear
How I do my hair
I don't really care
But it's not for you
And I aint got nothin' to prove
There cant be any us, if there can't be any trust
Nothin' to discuss, no doubt
I'm not that kinda girl to let you play me out

[Chorus]

[BRIDGE:]
You might take me shopping, but I'm not your property
If I dont like it, I decided
I can make it on my own
As long as we disagree to agree
Down for you and you're down for me
Baby I'm what you want and we can build a love so strong

[Chorus]

Oooh Oooh Oooh Oooh
Not That Kinda Girl
Oooh Oooh Oooh Oooh
Not That Kinda Girl
Oooh Oooh Oooh Oooh
Do you know what kinda girl I am?
Oooh Oooh Oooh Oooh
I'm that kinda girl
ooohoohh-yeaaahh



03. Homeboy

[VERSE 1:]
My homie since knee high
We came up on the south side
Where you had to beat the street lights home
We got into some street fights
But the next day we be right back get it all
Wherever there was me, there was you
And we were like crew
Straight from junior high school
Then you messed it all up
Started pushing up
Kissed me on the cheek
And I fell in love

Shorty's a little taller now
Into big things, he's a baller now
His heart never changed
I can see he's still down
I can't forget him (No no no no)
More than his voice is changing now
All that I see is rearranging now (Now)
It just ain't the same
Catchin feelings now
I should tell him (Yea)

[CHORUS:]
Ooooh when the the boy next door (Next door)
Don't want to be my homeboy no more
Saw something that he never saw before
I think he wants to be my baby, baby
Been thinkin bout him all my life (My life)
Now I see him in a whole new light
Something about it feels so right (That's why)
I think he wants to be my baby, baby

[VERSE 2:]
Every night when we get home
Undercovers talking on the phone
Here comes my mother
It's way too late
Might get in trouble
My heart can't wait (So much to take)
Writing till my hand cramps up
4 pages saying I'm in love (I got a crush)
Can't get you off my mind (Can you pick me up baby)
I'm sure I'll be fine when I look into your eyes

Shorty's a little taller now
Into big things, he's a baller now
His heart never changed
I can see he's still down
I can't forget him
More than his voice is changing now
All that I see is rearranging now
It just ain't the same
Catchin feelings now
I should tell him (Gotta tell him that I love him)

[CHORUS]

[BRIDGE:]
Chocolate covered candy kisses
They keep me reminiscing
All I want is what your giving
Nothing like your affection
So in love and you're the reason
There's no more lonely season
Lately boy, you drive me crazy
Think I wanna be your baby
[Repeat]

Oh-we-oh
Oh oh oh (Don't wanna be my homeboy no more)
Oh-we-oh-we-oh-we-oh
Oh oh oh
Oh-we-oh-we-oh-we-oh
Oh oh oh
Oh-we-oh-we-oh-we-oh (Why why why why why)
Now homeboy wants to be my baby, be my baby, be my baby
Oh-we-oh
Oh oh oh (He don't wanna be my homeboy no more)
Oh-we-oh-we-oh-we-oh
Oh oh oh
Oh-we-oh-we-oh-we-oh (No more)
Oh oh oh
Oh-we-oh-we-oh-we-oh (Said he)
Now homeboy wants to be my baby, be my baby, be my baby
(Wants to be my baby now, now, now now now)



04. Leave (Get Out)

I've been waiting all day for ya babe
So won't cha come and sit and talk to me
And tell me how we're gonna be together always
Hope you know that when it's late at night
I Hold on to my pillow tight
And think of how you promised me forever
(I never thought that anyone)
Could make me feel this way
(Now that you're here boy all I want)
Is just a chance to say

[Chorus]
Get Out, (leave) right now,
It's the end of you and me
It's too late (now) and I can't wait for you to be gone
'Cause I know about her (who) and I wonder (why) how I bought all the lies
You said that you would treat me right but you was just a waste of time (waste of time)

Tell me why you're looking so confused
When I'm the one who didn't know the truth
How could you ever be so cold
To go behind my back and call my friend
Boy you must have gone and bumped your head
Because you left her number on your phone
(So now after all is said and done)
Maybe I'm the one to blame but
(To think that you could be the one)
Well it didn't work out that way

[Chorus]

I wanted you right here with me but I have no choice you've gotta leave
Because my heart is breakin'
With every word I'm sayin'
I gave up everything I had
On something that just wouldn't last
But I refuse to cry
No tears will fall from these
Eyeee-eeee-eeees
Ooooh, ooooh
Get out

[Chorus x2]

Get out (leave)
You and me
It's too late (too late)
You ohh
Bout her move why
You said that you would treat me right (noooo)
but it was just a waste of time (waste of time)

Ohhhh oh oh oh hoh oh



05. Never Say Goodbye

[VERSE 1:]
Never been in love
Cause a girl like me
Never had someone to care for
Never thought there could be
Someone special for me
And now I'm all in love
Cause a girl like me
Waited patiently for someone
Someone to care for me
And there will never be

[CHORUS:]
No more lonely, no more just me
I've been there before
Ain't goin no more
And now that you're here I
Never wanna say goodbye love
Never wanna be without you
No more cryin, no denyin'
I'm in love with you
And now that you're here I
I never wanna say goodbye love

[VERSE 2:]
Now it's time for me
To find out what the first time love could mean
Little scared but its cool
Cause it's worth it
Now I finally fell in love
And I know that it
Gots to be for real (So real)
It's the way that I feel
So come share my world with me
So there will never be

[CHORUS]

[BRIDGE:]
So I'm standin here
Arms open wide
Ready to give my heart
I'm sure this time
Love's gonna last for life
Baby I know things change
And there might be some rain
But the clouds are gonna clear
And the sun is gonna shine again
Shine light on our love baby
So let's make it last forever

[CHORUS]

Da da da da da
Oh

07. Keep On Keepin' On

Ooooh-ooohh
hey-yeeeah

You got to keep on keepin on
You got to keep your head up high
You gotta work with what you've got
And someday you will flyyyyy

[VERSE 1:]
Poor kids pouring cold water in their cereal
Second hand clothes
Surviving is pivotal
Praying to God at night
That things'll get better soon

I remember when I was in your position
Tried to tell people my story
But no one would really listen
I know times are hard right now
Happiness is hard to find right now

[CHORUS:]
You got to keep on keepin on
You got to keep your head up high
You gotta work with what you've got
And someday you will flyyyyy
You got to keep on keepin on
You got to keep your head up high
You gotta work with what you've got
And someday you will flyyyyy

[VERSE 2:]
Lookin out the window to a rose grows in concrete
Dreamin' of the day when you'll be standing on your own feet
Hard to find the good in such a scene so bad (so so sad)
Seein other kids with their Tims on
Fresh with Air Ones, wish I had one
Longin' for a day when you get your chance to shine
Don't worry, there'll come a tiiiiiiime

[CHORUS]

[BRIDGE:]
Young girl sittin' on the steps of her duplex (mmmm)
Why did God choose to make my life so complex
Breathing to the beat of a slow, sad drum
Trouble is her only source of fun
I can almost guarantee you
It'll get better todaaaaaayyy

[CHORUS]



08. Baby It's You

OoooohhaaaahhhhhOhhhaaaahhhh.......

[Verse 1]
Can somebody explain to me
Why everybody is trying to be
Living like a celebrity
Doing what they see on MTV.
Ice is cool but I am looking for more, simple things is what my heart beats for.

Cause that's me
I don't ask for much
Baby
Having you is enough

[Chorus]
You ain't got to buy nothing
It's not what I want
Baby it's You
We don't have to go nowhere
Its not what I want
Baby it's you
It's not for what you got
Cause I know you got alot
No matter what you do
You always gettin Hot
It's You,
It's You
Baby all I want is You Yeah

[Verse 2]
It don't matter that your car is fly
And your rims are spinning on the side and
It don't matter where we go tonight
Cause if I'm with you I'll be alright.
That's cool but I'm lookin for more
Its your love that my heart beats for.

Cause thats me
Don't have to spend a dime
Baby
I just want your time.

[Chorus]
[Musical Break]
Ooooohhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh
Oooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh.......

[Chorus]
Yeah Yeah Yeaey Yeahey Ye Ye Yeay......[Fades Out]



09. The Happy Song

[Verse 1:]
Nothin makes me more happy than to know
That I have such a close friend
To know that you're down for me is reassuring
It's the reason I'm always smilin

And when I'm kickin' it with you
I have a lot fun with you
Never any kind of pressure
Comin' from you
Trying to get me to do
Anything I'm not ready to
That's why I really like you

[Chorus:]
Da da da da da
Da da da da da
Da da da da da
You make me happy
Da da da da da
Da da da da da
Da da da da da
So very happy

[Verse 2:]
I never get tired of talkin' on the phone with you
For hours at a time
And as time goes by we will come grown up and wise
I hope we'll be just as tight

And it was supposed to be
Then we're gonna be
No one can stop what's destined
For you and me
Who's to say that we
Won't fall deep in love
It's a very good chance because

[Chorus x2]

[Bridge:]
I might be young
But I still know what it is (to be happy)
I know what's in my heart
I know what's on my mind
And it's you all of the time

[Repeat Chorus to fade]



10. City Lights

Hmm Yeaa (Ooh Ooh)
City Lights
It's on tonight Yea Yea (ooh ooh ooh ohh yea)
Out on the street, I'm looking for a celebration
Come roll with me, together we can crash the party and
Get on the floor, DJ please play my song
And we can do this all night long
Once again, it is on

I'm on a high
I feel like I'm on medication
I'm open wide, and we don't need no complications
Cause I feel alright
And all I see is red lights, and blue lights, and street lights
And it's real life, is that a sign

I'm under the city lights
It's on, its on tonight
My mood is right, its on its on tonight
Me and my girls (me and my girls)
Tonight it's our world (tonight it's our world)
I'm out tonight
Yea, I'm out tonight (Heyy)
Come on now

It's after dark
And I love stories in the morning
I can see the stars
Expensive cars on the boulevard
And now I'm so inspired
Cause I want to buy me a Lexus
Or maybe Ill get me a Beemer or Hummer,
It's summer
Its never too late
There's always more fascination
Just turn the page
And I won't be hesitating
Cause I can hardly wait
Do my dance, sway my hands
Hear my jam
You can count me in
I wish tonight will never end

I'm under the city lights
It's on, its on tonight
My mood is right, its on its on tonight
Me and my girls (me and my girls)
Tonight it's our world (tonight it's our world)
I'm out tonight
Yea, I'm out tonight (Heyy)
Come on now

It's on, its on tonight
My mood is right, its on its on tonight
Me and my girls (me and my girls)
Tonight its our world (tonight its our world)

See I'm out tonight, and it's alright

[Repeat Chorus 2X]

13. Weak

[VERSE 1:]
I don't know what it is that you've done to me
But it's caused me to act in such a crazy way
Whatever it is that you do when you do what you're doing
It's a feeling that I want to stay
'Cuz my heart starts beating triple time
With thoughts of lovin' you on my mind
I can't figure out just what to do
When the cause and cure is you, you

[CHORUS:]
I get so weak in the knees
I can hardly speak, I lose all control
Then somethin' takes over me
In a daze, your love's so amazing
It's not a phase
I want you to stay with me, by my side
I swallow my pride
Your love is so sweet, it knocks me right off of my feet
Can't explain why your lovin' makes me weak

[VERSE 2:]
Time after time after time I've tried to fight it
But your love is strong, it keeps on holdin' on
Resistance is down when you're around, pride's fading
In my condition I don't want to be alone
'Cuz my heart starts beating triple time
With thoughts of lovin' you on my mind
I can't figure out just what to do
When the cause and cure is you, you

[CHORUS]

[BRIDGE:]
I've tried hard to fight it
No way can I deny it
Your love's so sweet
It knocks me off my feet

[CHORUS]

[BRIDGE 2:]
I get so weak
Blood starts racing through my veins
I get so weak
Boy it's somethin' I can't explain
I get so weak
Somethin' 'bout the way you do the things you're do-oo-oo-in'
Knocks me right off of my feet (off my feet)
Can't explain why your lovin' makes me weak (I get so)

[CHORUS TO FADE]
