That Girl

written by : G. Benson, M. Elliott, R. Livingston, S. Pizzonia, O. Burrell., B.T. Jones, S. Cropper, L. Steinberg, Al Jackson

The girl has got the touch
What she got is a little something
That kind of girl
Maxi Priest just make them know

She's the kind of woman
Who let's you know
When she knows what she wants
She won't let go
Takes you to a place of your fantasy
Walks you to the door
But she holds a key

chorus
That girl ooh that kind of girl, gangsta kind of lover
That girl ooh that kind of girl, smooth type of girl

No matter who you are
Or what you do
She knows how to click
In everything you do
She can make you hot
When it's cold outside
Take you on a high
Even make you fly

repeat chorus

Mmmmmmm, she's outspoken
I'm heartbroken
Just the kind of girl to keep my love life rolling
She's outspoken
I'm heartbroken
Just the kind of girl to keep my
That that that girl
To make you break your silence and speak
Just a glimpse upon the silhouette
My knees get weak
Mmmmmmm, baby baby so unique
A reggaemantic lover lover make her life complete

repeat chorus

She's the kind of woman who knows the street
And even under pressure she's smooth and sweet
No complications just attitude
Believes in what she's got and she won't get used

repeat chorus

Well I'm weak to her touch
So vulnerable to her blush, love struck
That girl I got an instant crush
You can call me a lush, infatuation or just lust
The girl possess the stuff to
Make the man them oh ah

Holy Moses Lord it could have been me
Caught up in this trap I didn't wanna be, I know
But I ain't no fool I was one step ahead, yeah
I had to let go cause I was over my head

That girl ooh that kind of girl
Gangsta kind of lover
That girl ooh that kind of girl
Cause she's a Shaggy kind of girl
That girl ooh, let them know
That kind of girl, sexy kind of lover
That girl ooh, let them know
That kind of girl, Maxi kind of girl

She's outspoken
I'm heartbroken
Just kind of girl to keep my love life flowin'
She's outspoken
I'm heartbroken
She's the kind of girl to keep my that that girl

That girl ooh, I got to let them know
That kind of girl
She's the kind of girl that captivates your soul
That kind of girl
A rude girl type of lover
That kind of girl
Shaggy and Maxi Priest definitely on the girl them case

 

Man with The Fun

written by : G. Benson, M. Elliott, R. Livingston, S. Pizzonia, T. Brevette

If I get your name and your telephone number
We can get together baby sooner than later
But if you walk away then we're gonna be strangers
Won't you take the chance I can make it much better
I don't really know you but I'm trying to get over
You looked so good I just had to walk over
I wondered if your name is Lisa, Tammy or Mona
And if you spare the time I can tell you about me

chorus
Cause I'm the man with the fun, yes I am
Yes I'm the man with the fun
I don't hit and run
Cause I'm the man with the fun, yes I am
Yes I'm the man with the fun
I don't hit and run

I'm the type of man who can hold it together
And even if it rains I can be your umbrella
So tell me what to do so I can hold you much closer
Baby won't you give me just your name and your number
Or is there someone else, I don't see no ring
And if you say no we can do our thing
It's looking like you're free is it true that you're single
So maybe we can get together baby and mingle

repeat chorus

So if I get your name and your telephone number
We can get together baby sooner than later
But if you walk away then we're gonna be strangers
So if you take the chance baby things will get better

repeat chorus 2x

Not gonna leave you
Put your trust in me baby

repeat chorus

 

Watching The world Go By

written by : G. Benson, M. Elliott, A. Marvel

There's so much injustice here
I see it every day
Time and time we try to change
And never find a way
We'll climb the mountains far and wide
To find the truth behind the lies
Here I am just searching for some peace

chorus
Just watching the world go by
Counting the clouds up in the sky
I'm hoping for a new tomorrow
Without sadness and sorrows in my life oh yeah

There is so much hate around
We need to find some love
So much disillusion
I just got to rise above
There is so much going down
To keep my feet on solid ground
Got to find an answer to my prayers

Just watching the world go by
Counting the clouds up in the sky
Getting all those complications
And those mad situations out of my life
Just watching the world go by
Seeing all those lonely people pass me by
I'm hoping for a new tomorrow
Without sadness and sorrows in my life my life my life

Come along now now now, come along now now now

You need to spend some time
To look into yourself
And watch the river flow into the sea
You travel down a highway
Not knowing where it goes
And listening to the music as it flows

repeat chorus

 

Message In A Bottle

written by : Sting

Just a castaway on an island lost at sea-o
Another lonely day, no one here but me-o
More loneliness than any man could bear
Rescue me before I fall fall into despair-o

chorus
I'll send an SOS to the world
I'll send an SOS to the world
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my message in a bottle
Oh yeah message in a bottle ooh

A year has passed since I wrote my note
But I should have known this right from the start
Only hope can keep me together
Love can mend a life but love can break your heart-o

repeat chorus

My message, my message, message in a bottle, my my my my Lord

Woke up this morning, I don't believe what I saw
A hundred million bottles washed up on the shore
Seems like I'm not alone in being alone
A hundred million castaways looking for a home

repeat chorus

Sending out an SOS message in a bottle
Sending out, sending out, sending out
Sending out an SOS
Sending out an SOS
Sending out an SOS
Reaching to the world my Lord

My message my message
Sending out an SOS
Sending out an SOS
Sending out an SOS

Don't need another heartache
Heartbreak lover
Cause I'm a boombastic kind of lover

You can do nothing now to please me

Love Will Cross Over

written by : G. Benson, M. Elliott, D. Germain, H. Seaton, L. Charmers

In God I believe ooh yeah
In God I believe ooh yeah

We rise to another day
So many things to say
Here comes the rain
I know it won't be long
Hope makes me carry on
My life is worth all the pain
So I'm working hard to find some kind of peace of mind
It's what I need to achieve
And even in times of doubt my faith I can't leave with out
In God the King I believe

chorus
One Day I know my Lord
Love will take over oh yeah
One day I know
We will cross over oh well

So I walk an endless road
Carrying my heavy load
I know that I'm not alone
And when the day is done
I know the time has come
To give my thanks once more

repeat chorus

Soon one day I know
We will cross over

Now there is a time and a place
We've got to run the race
Now there is a lesson to learn, teach them
So we never give up the fight
When we believe we're right
We can overcome

repeat chorus

Soon one day I know
Love will take over
Got to believe it
We will cross over I know I know
Oh one day love will take over
I know one day love will cross over

 

All Kinds Of People

Jah Rastafari
One man's feed is another man's poison
One man's joy is another man's pain
One man's strength is another man's weakness
And it takes all kinds of people
All kinds of people in this world
To make this world turn around
Make this world a better place
Make this world turn around

One man's chains is another man's freedom
One man's curse is another man's prayer
One man's dream is another man's nightmare
And it takes all kinds of people
All kinds of people in this world
To make this world turn around
Make this world a better place
Make this world turn around
Make this world a better place

So many questions waiting for the answer
So many people waiting for their ship to come in
And salvation to begin hey hey hey
One man's hell is another man's heaven
One man's enemy is another man's friend
One man's woman is another man's lover
And it takes all kinds of people
All kinds of people in this world
To make this world turn around
Make this world a better place
Make this world turn around
Make this world a better place

Make this world a better place
Make this world turn around
Make this world a better place
Make this world turn around
Make this world a better place

You just don't understand
I was home just the other day
When someone told me
That you're still with the man
That you left long time ago

Oh I'm not tryin' to play in your love affair
But you mean so much to me
When I see those teardrops in your eyes
It all comes back to me

Oh my little sister
I can be your shoulder to cry on
But you're a big girl now
And you can't waste your life away ooh

chorus
Golden teardrops, chasing rainbows
Will help you to ease your mind
But you've got to let go sometime
Golden teardrops, chasing rainbows
Will help you to ease your mind
But you've got to let go sometime

Oh my little sister
I'm not tryin' to tell you what to do
But the wounds that I thought
Would have healed by now
Are still tearing you apart

I can dry your eyes
But I won't tell you lies
But you got to be strong
Need to take control of your life

Ain't It Enough

written by : G. Benson, M. Elliott. A. Marvel

This one's for you baby
This time I'll make things right
Listen

Lately I've been thinking that we need some time together
Nothing ever seems to go the way we planned
I used to think that nothing would ever come between us
And what we have is slipping right through our hands

chorus
Ain't it enough to say I love you
Ain't it enough to know I care
What would it take to prove that I need you

I'll do anything, I swear

You're always trying to tell me
That I never understand you
The trouble is you never get what I say
You never listen to my side of the story
So tell me, do I really have to beg you to stay

Tell me tell me tell me baby

repeat chorus

Much too far from being over
Much too close to let it go
It's our time to get it back together

Cause I can't stand to lose you right now

repeat chorus 3x

 

Human Cry

written by : G. Benson, P. Morgan, R. Morgan, M. Elliott

Cry, human cry
Cry cry ooh Lord
There's a dark place in the heart of the city
Where no one goes
People up-town won't admit it
They don't wanna know
Children on the sidewalk looking so sad
People out there they got bad intentions
And there's nothing to lose

chorus
Human cry cry cry
Human cry from the battlefield
Human oooh Lord
Human cry oh Lord

Shattered dreams of forgotten souls
Who struggle to exist
People on the hill won't come near
Afraid to take the risk
Looking for a way out that's not there
Desperate faces everywhere so hungry
Searching for shelter

repeat chorus

Fragile the place is fragile
We're on the edge of all tomorrows
And you just can feel the tension
Tearing us apart
We're gonna let go if we lose a heart
Ooh oh the place is fragile

Say it's midnight on the street
Graffiti everywhere
And in a fortress on higher ground
People live in fear
No this ain't no distant dream
It's in our own backyard
Look all around you

repeat chorus

 

Frienenemy

written by : M. Elliott, L. Heywood, D. Heywood

I cry
I cry,listen me keenly
I cry, ah bad boy and wickeh man
I cry for my people
I'm talking to my people, watch this

chorus
Tell me who are your enemy
Just type of frienenemy
Tell me who are your enemy
Just that type of frienenemy

I wanna know just why a man thinks it's funny
Dising his idrin
Saying everything leads to money
Where do you go from here
Won't you make a decision
Cause only your friend knows your secret
Only he can reveal them

repeat chorus

Slow down a minute let me
Talk to you neatly
Cause I got something here to say
Won't you listen me keenly
Why does a smiling face never show no traces
And fool you with their plastic smiles
And their smooth conversations

repeat chorus

I wanna know now, yes I do
I wanna know now
My my my my my my my Lord
Dash shi way
Nah take it back

There with a watchful eye trying to
Trick and deceive you
Despite of all the good you do
They'll be there to deny you

repeat chorus

Slow down a minute l
Let me talk to you neatly
Cause I got something here to say
Won't you listen me keenly

There with a watchful eye trying to
Trick and deceive you
Despite of all the good you do
They'll be there to deny you

repeat chorus

 

Won't Let It Slip Away

written by : G. Benson, M. Elliott, H. Tucker

Yeah just making it with you girl

chorus
Holding you tight, squeezing you right
And I won't let it slip away
When I feel the taste of your sweet embrace
I couldn't let it slip away

I don't know how I got here
But I'm in the place
And the music's rocking in my soul
No time to waste
The party is raging and I'm getting hot
And until I get to know you girl
I'm not gonna stop

Dancing with you cheek to cheek
And I feel your heat
And the words you whisper in my ears
They sound so sweet

repeat chorus

Being here with you girl just takes me away
To another place, another time
Ooh I love your way
The music is playing, we're rocking in time
And you're really getting to me girl
You're blowing my mind

repeat chorus 3x
