thinking about my old hometown
growning up with folks showin us lovin that knows no bounds
but still im hey ya! single - dolo style
mom and dad keep sticking two together cuz we don't know how
nowadays it seems like love is fast to come and go, doesn't last
little bundles of joy cost big bundles of cash
and it's hard to buy in the city
im always flying, im busy
do i need smthg real? i kinda get by with midi
and by the by all these cities seem the same till ur home
and likewise, maybe ladies all seem the same till they're known
and you grow together and then grow attached
growin up is knowing that we all need each other and love requires no holding back
and no going backwards when ur back hurts
i know its strange hearin bout commitment from as bachelor thats overaged
with plenty of fish to capture and throw away
but lenny just wished he was back with bonet … so hey… i dunno…

i get so hard on myself, for all the mistakes that ive made
see if ive been given so much, don't let me throw it away (throw it!)
hail mary
kelly wants to go for the win
cant go the way of the buffalo bills
no, get a ring
and take knee don beebe
do you andre reed me?
thurman thomas players: i don't mean to coach, marv levy
all my girl non-girlfriends: monica to phoebe
still hoping love hasn't gone the way of the cd
yeah it's cheesy i know
i guess im talking to I
I still hear Isaac Hayes strings when shes walking on by
I've been heart broken before man Im not gonna lie
for a bit i quit hope and said im not gonna try
I said it's not gonna fly
they told me to spit smthg new
i said you cant force somethings
i will when i do
i said im not gonna cry
they told me to find sm1 new
i said you can't force somethings
i will when i do
