Look, but donít make you eyes strain

Every 1's a Winner - by Hot Chocolate

=========================================================

Never could believe the things you do to me,

Never could believe the way you are.

Every day I bless the day that you got through to me,

'Cause baby, I believe that you're a star.

 

Everyone's a winner, baby, that's the truth (yes, the truth)

Making love to you is such a thrill.

Everyone's a winner, baby, that's no lie (yes, no lie)

You never fail to satisfy (satisfy)

 

Never could explain just what was happening to me,

Just one touch of you and I'm a flame.

Baby, it's amazing just how wonderful it is

That the things we like to do are just the same.

 

Everyone's a winner, baby, that's the truth (yes, the truth)

Making love to you is such a thrill.

Everyone's a winner, baby, that's no lie (yes, no lie)

You never fail to satisfy (satisfy)

 

Let's do it again.

 

Everyone's a winner, baby, that's the truth (yes, the truth)

Making love to you is such a thrill.

Everyone's a winner, baby, that's no lie (yes, no lie)

You never fail to satisfy (satisfy)

 

Oh, baby

Oh, baby

Oh, baby...

 

 

Jam On it - Newcleus

=======================================

Yeah

Jam on it

(Yeah, yeah, we know, we know)

Huh

(Yeah, Goggles, you gonna rock it, right)

(You gonna do it down, right)

Ha-ha-ha-ha, yeah

(Hey, Cozmo, what's the name of this again)

(I forgot)

Jam on it

(Oh)

(Oh, Chilly B, get down, ho)

(Oh, oh, here comes Cozmo)

(Ho)

(We get to say wikki-wikki-wikki again)

Wikki-wikki-wikki-wikki

(Shut up)

Wikki-wikki-wikki-wikki

 

Three words to the whack, step yourself back

Just gettin' down, and you then you're givin' no slack

Like a Burger King with a sack of Big Macs

We're throwin' down with the radical sacks

On time, in your mind you see

You gotta boogie to your best ability

You gotta funk it up until it knocks you down

And when you're funkin' up, be sure to pass it around

Come on, let's go to work

We got what'll make your body jerk

Make you throw your hands up in the air

Shake your booty and scream, "Oh, yeah"

¬?Cause we are the Jam On Crew

And jammin' on it is how we do the do

We'll funk you up until you boogie down

 

So come people check out the sound

Check out the sound, check out the sound, check out the sound, check out the sound

Check out the sound, check out the sound, check out the sound, check out the sound

Check out the sound

(Jam on it)

 

There's going to sound

They're going to get down

(Jam on it)

 

Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Chilly B

And I'm a surefire, full blooded bonafide house rockin' Jam-On Production MC

If you want the best, put me to the test, and I'm sure you'll soon agree

That I got no force a'cause I'm down by law when it comes to rockin' viciously, you see

A'Cause when I was a little baby boy my mama gave me a brand new toy

Two turn tables with a mic, and I learned to rock like Dolomite

Time went by, on this God creation, I knew someday I would rock the nation

So I made up my mind just what to do and I joined with the Jam On Production Crew

So go crazy, go crazy, don't let your body be lazy

I said don't stop the body rock till your eyesight starts to get hazy

Clean out your ears and you open your eye, if you wanna hear the music just come alive

If you don't know how get ready to learn

'Cause Cozmo's takin' his turn to burn

Take the "C" and "O" and the "Z"

Then they add "M-O" and the freaky "D"

Add a funky beat, and then what do you see

It's Cozmo D, yeah, baby, that's me

I've got the beat that's, oh, so sweet

Without me rockin' it's incomplete

So rock this, yo', rock that, yo'

Rock on and don't you dare stop

You rock this, rock that, and that's a fact

Cause the Jam On Crew will rock your body right back

Rock a steam locomo ride off the track

And give the whole wide world a funk attack

A to the beat y'all, get down

Let me rock it to the rhythm of the funk sound

From hill to hill, from sea to sea

A when Jam On's rockin' everybody (Jam on it)

 

Jam on it

Jam on and on, on and on it

And if you're feelin' like you wanna dance all night

They go on ahead and flaunt it

Cause jammin' on is what we do best

It's what separates us from the rest

And if you go deep, I'll cruise down for real

Let me tell what happened to the man of steel

(Said Superman had come to town to see who he could rock)

(He blew away every crew he faced until he reached our block)

(His speakers were three stories high with woofers made of steel)

(And when we boys sit outside, he said "I boom for real")

He said, "I'm faster than a speedin' bullet when I'm on the set

I don't need no fans to cool my ass, I just use my super breath

I could fly three times around the world without missin' a beat

I socialize with X-ray eyes, and ladies think it's sweet

(And then he turned his power on and the ground began to move)

(And all the buildings for miles around were swayin' to the groove)

(And just when he had fooled the crowd and swore he won the fight)

We rocked his boat with a 12 inch cut called Disco Kryptonite

Well, Superman looked up at me, he said, "You rock so naturally"

I said now that you've learned the deal, let me tell you why I'm so for real

I'm Cozmo D from outer space, I came to rock the human race

I do it right ¬?cause I can't do it wrong

That's why the whole world is singin' this song

 

(Jam on it) Jam on it

I said jam-j-j-jam on it

As days turn to night and night turns to day

Whatever time it is i wanna hear you say

(Jam on it) Jam on it

I said jam on-on-on, jam on it

Jam all around and upside down

And keep jammin' to the Jam On Production sound

(Jam on it) Jam on it

I said jam-j-j-jam on it

I said Jam On is the funky beat that takes control

With a sure shot boogie that'll rock your soul

(Jam on it) Jam on it

I said jam-j-j-jam on it

Get outta your seat and jam to the beat

And don't you dare stop till early mornin'

Jam on it, jam on it, jam on it, jam on it, jam on it, jam on it, jam on it,

jam on it

(Yeah, that's how you do it Cozmo)

(You were right, kid, that's the way you do it)

(Yeah, like did you see when he went in the corner)

(And he started doin' this)

(Wikki-wikki-wikki-wikki)

(Wikki-wikki-wikki-wikki)

(Ah, man, this is too funky for me)

(I'm goin' home)

(Hey, Mergatroid, let's go)

(Hey, you fellas seen my sister Mergatroid)

(She was standin' over here just a minute ago)

(Yeah, I think I saw her over there with Randy)

(He's rockin' the mic, you know)

(Diggy dang diggy dang da dang dang da diggy diggy diggy dang dang)

(Diggy dang diggy diggy)

(The beat is fresh y'all)

(Yeah, fresh)

Said don't you hear the sound

Jam On is gettin' down

 

 

Parental Discretion is Advised - NWA

=====================================

Parental discretion is advised for the moment

While I'm getting candid now understand it

Ain't too typical in any way though the pro

On the mic is the D.O. to the C., this is an intro

I know the D.O.C. make ya want to take a valium

So buy a bucket 'cause I'm coming, it's my album

And for the record, meaning my record, check it

Listen to the single and you'll be like, yo, I gotta get it

But in the meantime, listen to the rhyme of the Dr. Dre

Played wit NWA

Yella's on the drum roll, rocking the beat

Hey yo Dre, where are you gonna take this shit man

 

(Dr. Dre)

Hey yo, let's take it to the street (word up)

Let 'em understand perfection

Let knowledge be the tool for suckers to stop guessing

'Cause I don't give a fuck about radio play

Observed the english I display

Lyrics for the adults, children have been barred

Scarred from listening to suckers so muthafuking hard

Dope, pumping that so much shit will never falter

Yo, It's Dre, so fuck the mind of Minolta

Psycho like no other muthafuka, so

Step to me wrong, G-O for what you N-O

But be warn, never will I leave like a regular

'Cause I'm a little better than a regular competitor

I use to see 'em on stage

Earning money like a thief but without a gauge

Until I got full of clocking the lane, getting pulled

(They said you was gonna get paid) no, that's bullshit

They like it stylistic

And I enchant the crowd like I'm a misfit

(C-C-C-C) C-C-C-cameras on flashing when I'm in action

A photo or fresh wit a flair for fashion

Pure simplicity, see it's elementary

To hear one of the hardest muthafukers this century

Try to comprise a word to the wise

And the guys, parental discretion is advised

 

(MC Ren)

Ren is most extremely high performance

The black hat 'cause I worn this 'cause it's like enormous

Some shit, I don't take it, not even in a toliet

And shit from a sucker, put in a pot and I'll boil it

Turn up the pilot as it burns

And maybe, the muthafukers will learn

I'm not a sub 'cause I speak sensible

Not consider a prince 'cause I'm a principal

I'm engineering the shit that you're hearing

'Cause when it comes to power, I'm power steering

Silly you say, I say you silly when you're say it

Rushing to the eject to put my shit in and play it

It's like Apollo but I'm not an amateur

And I'm not giving a fuck while I'm damaging ya

It's for the record so Ren's lyrics, I'm gonna spin it

And if there was a trophy involved, I'll win it

Possession is mine and I'm the holder

'Cause a nigga like Ren don't give a fuck 'cause I'm older

So for you to step off would be wise

And say fuck it, parental discretion is advised

 

(Ice Cube)

I be what is known as a bandit

You gotta hand it to me when you truely understand it

'Cause if you fail to see, read it in brail

Would it still be funky, so what's next is the flex

Of a genius, mirander stutter stepping, if you seen this

Dope, you hope that I don't really mean this

But it play, making greater high top fade

It's not my trademark when I get loose in the dark

You guess it was a test of a different style

It's just another muthafuker on the pile

Driving your ass with the floor of your tongue

You hung yourself short, be after knowledge was brung

To your attention by the hardest muthafuking artist

That is know for lenching any sucker in a minute

Stagger 'em all

When I start flowing like Niagra Falls

Ice Cube is a quick to rip shit in a battle

Move like a snake when I'm mad and then my tail rattle

I get low on a flow so let your kids know

When I bust, parental discretion is a must

 

(Eazy-E)

Little did they know that I would be arriving

And then surprising, rocking it from where I been

But it's the E here to take no mistake

To be made in a trade where funky ass records are being played

Fuck the regular, yo, I get better, the

Bitches wanna trick and go stupid for the dick

So I get 'em hot thinking they're gonna get it

As they sit, rubbing their legs like a cricket

To you it may be funny

But there's no type of some beef without money

So slip the C-note and you can choke

On a wing ding ding-a-ling down your throat

Foreplay to me ain't shit

When you spread them, I'm ready, then you can get the dick

Of the Eaze, if you can deal wit the size

But if you can't, parental discretion's advised...
