Well it seems so real I can see it
And it seems so real I can feel it
And it seems so real I can taste it
And it seems so real I can hear it
So why can’t I touch it?
So why can’t I touch it?

Then it looks so real I can see it
And it feels so real I can feel it
And it tastes so real I can taste it
And it sounds so real I can hear it
So why can’t I touch it?
So why can’t I touch it?

Then it looks so real I can feel it
And it feels so real I can taste it
And it tastes so real I can hear it
And it sounds so real I can see it
So why can’t I touch it?
So why can’t I touch it?

Now it is so real I can see it
And it is so real I can feel it
And it is so real I can hear it
And it is so real I can be it
So why can’t I touch it?
So why can’t I touch it?

Extended Play E.P.
Sexy lover smokin’ with passion
step to the front if you wanna see the action
glance at the mic should I rock my style
it’s been a long time since I got buck wild
sometimes I feel lost in the sauce
when it comes down to who’s the boss
am I being too soft
feenin’ for your love and your special attention
trying to get you to look in my direction
eh you ’bout straight, put a cake in your oven
got to see me to get the good lovin’
wanna get the chance to sex and romance ya
on the dance floor, yeah you want more
I’m wit your girlfriends on the weekend
I give you all types of freakin’ now you tell me you’re leavin’
girl get a grip cause I’m hittin’ all angles
you know how the game goes
you gon’ feel shamefull

When you had it, you didn’t want it
now you ain’t got it, so you want it back
when you had it, you didn’t want it
now you ain’t got it, so you want it back
(you don’t want this)
when you had it, you didn’t want it
now you ain’t got it, so you want it back
(you want that)
when you had it, you didn’t want it
now you ain’t got it, so you want it back

Spotlight game tight
every night new sights
who would ever think life could be so nice
everything’s love til you find out the price
you’re saying you’re sick of the same routine
can’t serperate life from a floor style dream
you wanna take a look split from the scenes
when you thought you got a grip it’s true you lost steam
kick start strain but you can’t find step
in your place is a stud with a bit more pep
little less rep secret well kept
aid her when you need every night you slept
heard it all before can’t beleive it came true
hard to see what a good party’ll do
what ya gon’ do listen to your crew
shoulda took a better look at who’s sleeping with you

When you had it, you didn’t want it
now you ain’t got it, so you want it back
when you had it, you didn’t want it
now you ain’t got it, so you want it back
when you had it, you didn’t want it
now you ain’t got it, so you want it back
when you had it, you didn’t want it
now you ain’t got it, so you want it back

Everytime I turn around you’re lookin’ for somethin’ new
talkin’ ’bout who got to find something else to do
who you wit’ and what you want is just a fantasy
that’s why I keep tellin’ you your ass need to be with me

You know what I’m sayin’
that’s what you want…

When you had it, you didn’t want it
now you ain’t got it, so you want it back
when you had it, you didn’t want it
now you ain’t got it, so you want it back
when you had it, you didn’t want it
now you ain’t got it, so you want it back
when you had it, you didn’t want it
now you ain’t got it, so you want it back

It’s the freakiest show

Hunky Dory
It’s a god-awful small affair
To the girl with the mousy hair
But her mummy is yelling “No”
And her daddy has told her to go
But her friend is nowhere to be seen
Now she walks through her sunken dream
To the seat with the clearest view
And she’s hooked to the silver screen
But the film is a saddening bore
‘Cause she’s lived it ten times or more
She could spit in the eyes of fools
As they ask her to focus on

Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man! Look at those cavemen go
It’s the freakiest show
Take a look at the Lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he’ll ever know
He’s in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?

It’s on Amerika’s tortured brow
That Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow
Now the workers have struck for fame
‘Cause Lennon’s on sale again
See the mice in their million hordes
From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads
Rule Britannia is out of bounds
To my mother, my dog, and clowns
But the film is a saddening bore
‘Cause I wrote it ten times or more
It’s about to be writ again
As I ask you to focus on

Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man! Look at those cavemen go
It’s the freakiest show
Take a look at the Lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he’ll ever know
He’s in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?

Kingsbury Manx
if you could only stay
even for a day
we could spend some time
yes you’ve spent some time
i’ve seen you with your books
memorizing lines
up at some day school
making others out as fools
sweet autumn leaves seem to long for the pre-garden days
sweet autumn leaves seem to long for the pre-garden days

you and arthur meade
taught me how to read
and how to waste a day
paint pictures of photographs
i paint pictures that made you laugh
sweet autumn leaves seem to long for the pre-garden days
sweet autumn leaves seem to long for the pre-garden days

little girl who’s got the blues
just you, the cat, and the covers on the bed
and your subject’s were once rough
but now they lack the stuff
sweet autumn leaves seem to long for the pre-garden days
sweet autumn leaves seem to long for the pre-garden days

go on about keeping warm
and you wonder why the doctor warned you not to flip your wig
i heard that you were out there, breaking weather
let me take you where the moss grows
like walking out into the year’s first snow
let me take you where the moss grows
like walking out into the year’s first snow
sweet autumn leaves seem to long for the pre-garden days
sweet autumn leaves seem to long for the pre-garden days

My joy is such a faker

Heard this album today at a coffee shop while doing school work with some classmates. Speaking of school work…6,7,8 hours a day on top of class is far from uncommon. Luckily, I have been able to hang with it (so far)…

Gal Costa
Não sei por que razão eu sofro tanto em minha vida
A minha alegria é uma coisa tão fingida
A felicidade já é coisa esquecida
Mas agora vou recomeçar
Não vou ser mais triste
Vou mudar daqui pra frente
E a minha escrita vai ser muito diferente
A filosofia vou mudar em minha mente
Pois agora vou recomeçar
Quero amor e quero amar
Quero a vida aproveitar
Talvez até arranje alguém
Alguém que eu possa acreditar
Pois agora vou recomeçar
E daqui pra frente eu vou mudar

The google translation:
I do not know why I suffer so much in my life
My joy is such a faker
Happiness is a thing forgotten
But now I will start
I will not be sadder
I will change from now on
And my writing will be very different
The philosophy I will change my mind
For now I’ll start
I want to love and want to love
I want to enjoy life
Maybe get someone
Someone who I can believe
For now I’ll start
And from now on I’ll change

Single
(And rollerskates)
(And rollerskates)
(And rollerskates)

Q-TIP:
Girl meets boy on Thursday night
Boy was high, girl fly like kite
They hold hands until next day
Boy then lets go, hit his way
Boy rules butt, brags to his boys
Erection brings bad boy joys
Boy thinks of that big fat back
Big black fat love, big black fat
Girl calls boy to stand him up on Saturday
Saturday

POS AND Q-TIP:
Saturday, it’s a Saturday
It’s a Saturday, it’s a Saturday
Saturday, it’s a Saturday
Saturday, it’s a Saturday

POS:
Back once more with the wallop in the score
Must I ride and rip, should I make you rock your hip
Reviver of a roller-boogie in a rink
And sure to make you think about the times
To scope fun instead of fights
(But diving from a piece of metal sure to take your life)
Yo, slip your butt to the fix of this mix
Toss that briefcase, it’s time to let loose
‘Cause you’ve worked like heck to get the week in check
So unfasten that noose around your neck
Connected like a vibe from the wheel to the foot
Come on everybody dig the funky output

VINIA:
Five days you work
One whole day to play
Come on everybody, wear your rollerskates today
It’s Saturday, Saturday
Saturday, it’s Saturday
Saturday, it’s Saturday
Saturday, it’s Saturday-ay
(Is the word, is the word, is the word)

POS:
Now as you pump your fist I reminisce
To a bounce, rock, skate, roll
Fess to impress
Hey, pretty diamond, do you like the way I’m dressed
Cool, keep the faith and be my mate
‘Cause all we need is feet
(And rollerskates)
But promote the hustle ’cause it keeps me thin
No need to talk, look who just walked in

DOVE:
(Is there a Dred on skates?)
Yes, man
(So kick the wham on this jam)
Oh Mr. Sprinkler, Mr. Sprinkler
Wet me for one, Mr. Sprinkler
I’m heatin’ high-five in a daze, no split
With a yawn I trip to the dawn
Out comes the bodies following the one idea
It’s clear, rattle to the roll
Hold back up the track, grab your rollerskates y’all
And let’s zip on by
Zip-a-de-doo-dah, let’s zip on by
Feed on a weed and we’re feeling high
Sun is on thick and the cheese is rollin’ quick
Come on, there’s no time to hide
Season is twist, spinning and winning
No hackeysack, let let me in
Spill on the bottom away, but it’s okay, huh
It’s a Saturday

POS:
Now let’s all get baked like Anita

Q-TIP:
Watch Mr. Lawnge, don’t look at the peter

DOVE:
Feel on the fun, I’ll feel on the

VINIA:
Hey, watch that!

DE LA SOUL:
It’s a Saturday

VINIA:
Now is the time
To act the fool tonight
Forget about your worries and you will be all right
It’s Saturday, Saturday
Saturday, it’s Saturday
Saturday, it’s Saturday
Saturday, it’s Saturday-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay
(Aaoww)

(Saturday)
(Saturday)
(Saturday)
(Saturday)
(Saturday)
(Saturday)
(Saturday)
(Saturday)

Alrighty, tonight Dan’s Music For Nerds gets a little more “in your face”. A little ditty from one of the best albums ever. So far apart from everything else at that moment. Man I used to be in love infatuated with her…

Wink

Speak, I’m listening
Baby, I’m your sweet thing
Believe what I’m saying
God’s truth, I’m not lying

I lie steady
Rest your head on me
I’ll smooth it nicely
Rub it better ’till it bleeds

And you’ll believe me
Caught out again
I’m calling you weak
Getting even

And I, I was joking
Sweet babe, let me stroke it
Take, I’m giving
God’s truth, I’m not lying

And you’ll believe me
I, I, I’m calling you in
And I’ll make it better
I’ll rub ’till it bleeds

I’ll rub it until it
I’ll rub it until it, hey!
I’ll rub it until it
I’ll rub it until it

I’ll rub it until it, hey!
I’ll rub it until it
I’ll rub it until it
I’ll rub it until it
