It’s Like That
by Mariah Carey, Jermaine Dupri

Jermaine Dupri:
This is
The point when I need everybody get to the dance floor
It’s like that y’all, that y’all
Da da da da, I like that y’all
It’s like that y’all, that y’all
Like da da da da, I like that y’all

Mariah:
I came to have a party
Open up the Bacardi
Feeling so hot tamale
Boy I know you watchin’ me
So what’s it gonna be
Purple taking me higher
I’m lifted and I like it
Boy you got me inspired
Baby come and get it
If you’re really feeling me

‘Cause it’s my night
No stress, no fights
I’m leaving it all behind
No tears, no time to cry
Just making the most of life

Everybody is living it up
All the fellas keep looking at us
Me and my girls on the floor like what
While the DJ keeps on spinning the cut
It’s like that y’all, that y’all
It’s like da da da da, I like that y’all
It’s like that y’all, that y’all
It’s like da da da da, I like that y’all

You like this and you know it
Caution it’s so explosive
Them chickens is ash and I’m lotion
Baby come and get it
Let me give you what you need
It’s a special occasion
Mimi’s emancipation
A cause for celebration
I ain’t gonna let nobody’s drama bother me

‘Cause it’s my night
No stress, no fights
I’m leaving it all behind
No tears, no time to cry
Just making the most of life

Everybody is living it up
All the fellas keep looking at us
Me and my girls on the floor like what
While the DJ keeps on spinning the cut
It’s like that y’all, that y’all
It’s like da da da da, I like that y’all
It’s like that y’all, that y’all
It’s like da da da da, I like that y’all

‘Cause it’s my night
No stress, no fights
I’m leaving it all behind
No tears, no time to cry
Just making the most of life

Everybody is living it up
All the fellas keep looking at us
Me and my girls on the floor like what
While the DJ keeps on spinning the cut
It’s like that y’all, that y’all
It’s like da da da da, I like that y’all
It’s like that y’all, that y’all
It’s like da da da da, I like that y’all

Fatman Scoop:
Let’s Go Now, Let’s Go Now
Here we go now, Here We Go Now
Let’s Go Now, Let’s Go Now
Here we go now, Here we go now
Let’s Go Now, Let’s Go Now
Here we go now, Here we go now

We belong together

I didn’t mean it
When I said I didn’t love you so
I should have held on tight
I never should’ve let you go
I did nothing
I was stupid
I was foolish
I was lying to myself
I could not fathom that I would ever
Be without your love
Never imagined I’d be
Sitting here beside myself

I didn’t know you
I didn’t know me
But I thought I knew everything
I never felt
The feeling that I’m feeling now
Now that I don’t
Hear your voice
Or even touch or even kiss your lips
Cause I don’t have a choice
What I wouldn’t give
To have you lying by my side

We belong together
When you left
I lost a part of me
It’s still so hard to believe
Come back baby please
We belong together

Who else am I gonna lean on
When times get rough
Who’s gonna talk to me
Till the sun comes up
Who’s gonna take your place
Baby nobody else
We belong together

I can’t sleep at night
When you’re all on my mind
Bobby Womack’s on the radio
Singing to me
‘If you think you’re lonely now’
Wait a minute
This is too deep, too deep
I gotta change the station
So I turn the dial
Trying to catch a break
And then I hear Babyface

I only think of you
And it’s breaking my heart
I’m trying to keep it together
But I’m falling apart
I’m feeling all out of my element
I’m throwing things
Crying
Trying to figure out
Where the hell I went wrong
The pain reflected in this song
Ain’t even half of what
I’m feeling inside
I need you
Need you back in my life baby

When you left
I lost a part of me
It’s still so hard to believe
Come back baby please
We belong together

Who else am I gonna lean on
When times get rough
Who’s gonna talk to me
Till the sun comes up
Who’s gonna take your place
There ain’t nobody else
We belong together

Shake it off

[chorus]
I goota shake you off
Cause the loving ain’t the same
And you keep on playing games
Like you know I’m here to stay
I gotta shake you off
Just like the Calgon commercial
I really gotta get up outta here
And go somewhere
I gotta shake you off
Gotta make that move
Find somebody who
Appreciates all the love I give
Boy I gotta shake you off
Gotta do what’s best for me
Baby and that means I gotta
Shake you off

By the time you get this message
It’s gonna be too late
So don’t bother paging me
Cause I’ll be on my way
See I grabbed all my diamonds and clothes
Just ask your momma she knows
You’re gonna miss me baby
Hate to say I told you so
Well at first I didn’t know
But now it’s clear to me
You would cheat with all your freaks
And lie compulsively
So I packed up my Louis Vuitton
Jumped in your ride and took off
You’ll never ever find a girl
Who loves you more than me

[chorus]
I gotta shake you off
Cause the loving ain’t the same
And you keep on playing games
Like you know I’m here to stay
I gotta shake you off
Just like the Calgon commercial
I really gotta get up outta here
And go somewhere
I gotta shake you off
Gotta make that move
Find somebody who
Appreciates all the love I give
Boy I gotta shake you off
Gotta do what’s best for me
Baby and that means I gotta
Shake you off

[bridge]
I gotta shake, shake, shake, shake, shake it
Off…

I found out about a gang
Of your dirty little deeds
With this one and that one
By the pool, on the beach, in the streets
Heard y’all was
Hold up my phone’s breakin’ up
I’ma hang up and call the machine right back
I gotta get this off of my mind
You wasn’t worth my time
I’ve leaving you behind
Cause I need a real love in my life
Save this recording because
I’m never coming back home
Baby I’m gone
Don’t cha know

[chorus]
I gotta shake you off
Cause the loving ain’t the same
And you keep on playing games
Like you know I’m here to stay
I gotta shake you off
Just like the Calgon commercial
I really gotta get up outta here
And go somewhere
I gotta shake you off
Gotta make that move
Find somebody who
Appreciated all the love I give
Boy I gotta shake you off
Gotta do what’s best for me
Baby and that means I gotta
Shake you off

[bridge]

Mine again

I remember when you used to be mine
Way back when
I was too na?ve to love you right
But now if I only had the opportunity
I would do anything
Because my heart still believes

[chorus]
Maybe you could be mind again
Maybe we could make that dream for real
Like way back then
When love was yours and mine
Maybe we could bring it back to life

It’s irrelevant to dwell on the past
I’m accountable for what went bad
And I mean that
But I keep on praying for another chance
Just to have you back
Cause I’ve grown
And I know how to be your everything

[chorus]
Maybe you could be mind again
Maybe we could make that dream for real
Like way back then
When love was yours and mine
Maybe we could bring it back to life

No, no it ain’t over yet
I just can’t accept the possibility
We weren’t made for each other’s arms
I know you’re my destiny
We can’t erase what was meant to be
Part of you and part of me
If we try one more time
Maybe somehow we’ll survive

Maybe you could be mine again
Maybe we could make that dream for real
Like way back then
When love was yours and mine
Boy maybe we could bring it back
Maybe we could bring it back
Maybe we could bring it back to…
Life
Maybe you could be mine

Say Something
featuring Snoop Dogg & Pharrell Williams

(Yeah)
(Say something, say something, say something)
Uuh
(Say something, say something, say something)
(Yeah) Uuh
(Say something, say something, say something)
Uuh (hi)
(Say something, say something, say something)
Yeah (say it Mimi)

I’m over here
Looking at you
You’re over there
Watching me too
Both painting pictures of
Of how we’ll kiss and hug

So what we gonna do?
(So what ya gonna do? What ya gonna do?)
Tell me why we’re standing here
(Tell me, tell me, tell me)
The moment’s passion’s all so clear
You’ve got my mind blown
And baby, I’m ready to go

Hey, but uhh
If it’s worth your while
Say something, say something
If it’s worth your while
Say something good to me
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey
If it’s worth your while
Do something good to me

(Let’s make it)
Hot as you can stand it
Something like volcanic
You know it seems organic
Just like the stars and planets
Yeah, we are
So what you gonna do?
(So what ya gonna do? What ya gonna do?)

Tell me why we’re still in here
(Tell me, tell me, tell me)
There’s nothing for us to fear
I could tell with my eyes closed
That baby, I’m ready to go

Ah.. (let’s go) hey
But uhh
If it’s worth your while
Say something, say something, say..
If it’s worth your while
Say something good to me
Say something, something
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey
If it’s worth your while
Do something good to me

If it’s worth your while
Say something, say something, uuh
If it’s worth your while
Say something good to me, baby
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey
If it’s worth your while
Do something good to me

Snoop Dogg:
Everytime I fall though
Want me to speak on the word or two
It’s the D-O-double-G
And I do it so lovingly
Diggin’ this track by the Neptunes
Babygirl, follow me to the west room
Now get buck wild
Shhh, don’t make a sound
I’ll take you, lay you down
Make your body go round and round
Do you want me to?
Don’t say you won’t
I know you do
Most girls play shy
It won’t hurt until you give it a try
I know you like my smile
Dig my style, dig the bow-wow

But uhh
If it’s worth your while
Say something, say something
Say something good
If it’s worth your while
Say something good to me
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey
If it’s worth your while
Do something good to me

If it’s worth your while
Say something, say something
Say something baby
If it’s worth your while
Say something good to me
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey
If it’s worth your while
Do something good to me

Stay the night

You’re kissing me
And saying I’m the one you need
To keep you warm
And lay with you tonight
Baby I feel the same way
I don’t want to leave
Wanna hold you close
And feel your love inside
But I don’t wanna play myself
Cause I know you’re with someone else
And I don’t need complications in my life
And I don’t wanna fall back in
And get caught up in you again
Boy I’m so conflicted in my mind

[chorus]
You keep saying stay the night
Just let me rock you till the morning light
It’s cold outside
And much too late to drive
You know I need you baby
I’m so lost without your love

Obviously, procrastinating just to be
Close to you a little longer now
It’s hard for me to break away from you baby
Never could resist you
And I still haven’t learned how
And I don’t wanna be a fool
But it’s hard when it comes to you
And I’m feeling vulnerable tonight
Cause I don’t wanna miss the chance
Of reliving our sweet romance
Boy I’m so confused down deep inside

[chorus]
You keep saying stay the night
Just let me rock you til the morning light
It’s cold outside
And much too late to drive
You know I need you baby
I’m so lost without your love

Get Your Number (Jermaine Dupri)

[chorus]
Oh damn
The club ‘bout to close in a minute
Can I get your number baby
So you and I can go get in it
Let me come and pick you up
And go take you out
Can I get your number baby
So I can show you what I’m all about
What I’m all about
Damn

I’ve been checkin’ you out
And I noticed that you ain’t just one of the crowd
So tell me won’t you
Come on and see about me baby
I’ve got the Crys on ice and I’m ‘bout to get nice
Up in VIP with all my ladies
Tell me how many times in your life
Will you get an opportunity like this tonight
Tell me a little somethin’ about you
Here’s a little somethin’ about me
I got a house in Capri and my own G4
And that Benz with the doors that life up from the floor

[chorus]
Oh damn
The club ‘bout to close in a minute
Can I get your number baby
So you and I can go get in it
Let me come and pick you up
And go take you out
Can I get your number baby
So I can show you what I’m all about
What I’m all about
Damn

Now that you’re sitting next to me
I bet you’re wondering
What my intentions are for you
And I to get into
Baby I just wanna
Hug and kiss and love ya
Look into my eyes baby don’t be shy
Is it yes or no
We ain’t got all night
Tell me how many times in your life
Will you get an opportunity like this tonight
Tell me a little somethin’ about you
Here’s a little somethin’ about me
I gotta PIP penthouse with a sick hot tub
We can watch the flat screen
While the bubbles fill it up

[chorus]
Oh damn
The club ‘bout to close in a minute
Can I get your number baby
So you and I can go get in it
Let me come and pick you up
And go take you out
Can I get your number baby
So I can show you what I’m all about
What I’m all about
Damn

La, la, la, la, la, la

One and Only (Twista)

I’m lookin’ for my one and only
Every time I turn around
I find my heart in pieces on the ground
So so lonely
I’m lookin’ for my one and only

I’m riding home in pain again baby
But that don’t mean s*** to you
You’re currently engaged
In an intimate conversation
With a young groupie or two
They say “players only love you
when they’re playing games”
Still I gave my heart to you
I should have stayed away
Like my friends all told me to

[chorus]
Every time I turn around
I find my heart in pieces on the ground
So so lonely
I’m lookin’ for my one and only
Every time I turn around
I find my heart in pieces on the ground
Why can’t I find my one and only

See I’m looking for a man that’ll rub me slow
Make me sing real high
When he goes down low
But see it ain’t just a physical thing
He’s gotta treat me affectionately
And I gotta know he won’t betray my trust
Just like every other motherf***** does
Is this just an impossible dream baby
To elusive to pursue
It’s been such a sad and windy road for me
Just searchin’ for the truth

[chorus]
Every time I turn around
I find my heart in pieces on the ground
So so lonely
I’m lookin’ for my one and only
Every time I turn around
I find my heart in pieces on the ground
Why can’t I find my one and only

Every time—-oh-mmm
Every time I turn around
I find my heart in pieces on the ground
So so loney
Why—
I’m looking for my one and only
Every time I turn around
Agh—ha ha ha ha
I find my heart in pieces on the ground
Whey can’t I find my one and only
Still lookin’ for my one and only
Every time I turn around
Agh—ha ha ha ha
I find my heart in pieces on the ground
So so lonely
Yay-
I’m lookin’ for my one and only
I’m lookin’ for my one and only
Every time I turn around
Agh-ha ha ha ha
I find my heart in pieces on the ground
I’m lookin’ for my one and only
Why can’t I find my one and only
Agh–

Circles

Ever since you left me
I’ve been trying to hide the pain
Painting on a smile with lipstick
Putting on a big charade
So difficult to keep pretending
It’s getting harder everyday
It’s plain to see I’m cold and heartsick
Since you turned and walked away
I just keep going round and round
And round in circles
Keep on tumbling down

[chorus]
Oh boy my world has changed
And I don’t think I can make it without out
Nothing’s the same
You got me running around in circles over you
(running around in circles over you)

Saturday I saw you
Holding hands with someone new
Somehow I kept my composure
Just like everything was cool
But inside I kept repeating
Don’t you let them see you cry
So I casually turned my head
As the tears rolled down my eyes
I just keep going round and round
And round in circles
Keep on tumbling down

[chorus]
Oh boy my world has changed
And I don’t think I can make it without you
Nothing’s the same
You got me running around in circles over you

Everything is you
How can I pull through
My heart is consumed I’m so confused
Still caught up in you…love can be so cruel
Baby don’t know how to turn you loose

[chorus]
Oh boy my world has changed
And I don’t think I can make it without you
No, nothing’s the same
You got me running around
And running around
And running around
Nothing’s the same
Baby baby cause you
Got me running around
In circles over you
(running around in circles over you)

Your girl

See, I used to be so shy
Sit at home and fantasize
(I should be your girl)
but I ain’t wastin’ no more time
cause I’ve got to make you mine

[chorus]
I’m gonna make you want to
Get with me tonight
I’m gonna put those naughty
Thoughts into your mind
I’m gonna show you clearly
I can rock your world
You’re gonna know for sure
That I should be your girl

See I used to be afraid
But now baby I can’t wait
I just gotta have your love
And enough’s enough’s enough

[chorus]
I’m gonna make you want to
Get with me tonight
I’m gonna put those naughty
Thoughts into your mind
I’m gonna show you clearly
I can rock your world
You’re gonna know for sure
That I should be your girl

Rap

I wish you knew

I’ve got to see you
Wherever you are
And I’ve got to be there
I’m wishing on stars
I’ve got to reveal what’s inside of my heart
But the words escape me
And I’m paralyzed
So helpless when I
Look into your eyes

[chorus]
And how I wish you only knew
What I feel inside for you
You probably haven’t got a clue
But I wish you knew
How I love you baby

Honestly I know it’s silly of me
To want you so badly
But keep it concealed
See my inferiority complex kicks in
And the words escape me
And I’m paralyzed
So helpless when I
Look into your eyes

[chorus]
And how I wish you only knew
What I feel inside for you
You probably haven’t got a clue
But I wish you knew
How I love you baby

To the floor (Nelly)

Oh, to the floor, everybody to the floor [repeat]
Neptunes
To the floor, everybody to the floor

Joyride

[Verse 1]
Baby baby don’t you ever let go
More and more until we both overflow
Got a feeling that my heart’s never known
I found love
Tender kisses and I’m floating on air
You can have me anytime, anywhere
When you need me I will always be there
I found love

[Chorus 1]
And our love goes round and round
Way up high, a joy ride
We can touch the stars above
We found love
And our love was heaven sent
From the day we first met
We’ve got something they can’t touch
We found love

[Verse 2]
Loving you is like a taste of heaven
Wanna gaze into your eyes forever
Run away and spend our lives together
I’ve found love
Baby baby
All it takes is one touch
And immediately I feel a rush
Baby boy, too much is never enough
I found love

[Chorus 2]
And our love goes round and round
Way up high, a joy ride
We can touch the stars above
We found love
And our love was heaven sent
From the day we first met
We’ve got something they can’t touch
We found love

[Bridge]
I don’t need anything
When you’re here next to me
Nobody in this whole wide world
Could ever replace you in my eyes
We found paradise
Forever you and I
Our love goes round and round
On a joy ride
(with ya babe, with ya babe,
with ya babe, with you baby)

[Outro]

Fly like a bird

Somehow I know that
There’s a place up above
With no more hurt and struggling
Free of all atrocities and suffering
Because I feel the unconditional love
From one who cares enough for me
To erase all my burdens
And let me be free to

[chorus]
Fly like a bird
Take to the sky
I need you now Lord
Carry me high
Don’t let the world break me tonight
I need the strength of you by my side
Sometimes this life can be so cold
I pray you’ll come and carry me home

Can we recover
Will the world ever be
A place of peace and harmony
With no war and with no brutality
If we loved each other
We would find victory
But in this harsh reality
Sometimes I’m so despondant
That I feel the need to

[chorus]
Fly like a bird
Take to the sky
I need You now Lord
Carry me high
Don’t let the world break me tonight
I need the strength of You by my side
Sometimes this life can be so cold
I pray You’ll come and carry me home

Keep your head to the sky
With God’s love you’ll survive

Fly like a bird
Take to the sky
I need you now Lord
Carry me high
Don’t let the world break me tonight
I need the strength of You by my side

Sometimes this life can be so cold
I pray You’ll come and carry me home
Carry me higher, higher, higher
Carry me higher, higher, higher
Carry me home
Higher Jesus
Carry me higher Lord
