Ever wondered how we all get through
Maybe someone's watching over you
All the sh*t that we face everyday
It somehow works itself out anyway
In the back of a stolen car....
Doing 80 with the headlights off.....

It's when I needed you........ 8)

that I don't care
But I'm a lonely man
And I'm running scared'.....Goodbye to my dancer

So the lyrics for Rita Ora's "How We Do" are:
I wanna party and bullsh*t, party and bullsh*t, etc

Am I missing something here cuz that does not make sense to me at all!! :lol: :oops:

Cool song!
I think the party part is the cocktails/smoke/dance, and the bullshit part is the laughing and chatting with friends.
Maybe :D

Elle Varner & J.Cole "I only want to give it to you"
Cause I only wanna give it to you
And I want you more than a new pair of shoes
I only wanna give it to you
And I sure do hope that you feel like I do

But you're so classic I want you more than my Adidas
All the bees are gettin at you cause your honey is sweeter


awesome tune! sounds like it was written for Jay! (or by Jay!)

Yes, I think you're right Giba! :wink:

Apparently, Rita Ora's song borrows lyrics from Notorious B.I.G.'s 1993 song "Party and Bullsh*t".

yes, I'm sure Rita Ora borrows and should be paying pays fees for sampling lyrics.
apparently she has won favor by Jay Z and Beyonce!

here's the Elle Varner video w/lyrics

I just love the new Train song; 50 ways to say goodbye.

I wanna live a thousand lives with you
I wanna be the one you're dying to
Love...but you don't want to

That's cool, but if my friends ask where you are I'm gonna say

She went down in an airplane
Fried getting suntanned
Fell in a cement mixer full of quicksand
Help me, help me, I'm no good at goodbyes!
She met a shark under water
Fell and no one caught her
I returned everything I ever bought her
Help me, help me, I'm all out of lies

She was caught in a mudslide
Eaten by a lion
Got run over by a crappy purple Scion
Help me, help me, I'm no good at goodbyes!
She dried up in the desert
Drowned in a hot tub
Danced to death at an east side night club
Help me, help me, I'm all out of lies
And ways to say you died

dancing to death? probably the best way to go!

actually I did have a great uncle die in a Detroit bar :shock:
he was drinking, and smoking, and singing....at about the age of 39.
He just keeled over.

Do What You Want, Be What You Are
Do what you want girl, but be what you are
There ain't no right er wrong way
Just a play from the heart
It ain't a sign of weakness to give yourself away
Because the strong give up and move on
While the weak, weak give up and stay

So do what you want to do
But be what you are
Do you believe in hot cars
Leather bars, or movie stars
Is that what's real
Payin' dues, Earth Shoes, Chicago blues
Is that how you feel?
You can change, but you can't conceal
What's deep inside you
It's your game, lt's your deal

So do what you want to do
But be what you are
Do you believe in hot cars
Leather bars, or movie stars
Is that what's real
Payin' dues, Earth Shoes, Chicago blues
Is that how you feel?
You can change, but you can't conceal
What's deep inside you
Lt's your game, lt's your deal

If you listen close
You can hear the crying"

"Heaven knows" by pretty reckless

"You walked in
and my life began again . . ."

"Dr. Wu"
On the Katy Lied Album by "Steely Dan" -


The saxo solo and entire song is just lovely. I love this line because ideally it would pertain to a person; for me it is books, music, movies, culture, etc not a person. I have read it is about heroin addiction and a two-timing woman.

Great jazz/classic rock band - check out "bad sneakers" "any major dude" "dirty work" (In american hustle I think) "black cow" "deacon blues" - geez there are so many I would recommend - if not for the .... erm many glasses of Sancerre - if you like a fusion of jazz and rock and great lyrics/mini-song dark novellas
