What you want, Baby I got it

All I’m askin’ is for a little respect when you get home (just a little bit)
Hey baby (just a little bit) when you get home
(Just a little bit) mister (just a little bit)

I ain’t gonna do you wrong while you’re gone
Ain’t gonna do you wrong cause I don’t wanna
All I’m askin’ is for a little respect when you come home (just a little bit)
Baby (just a little bit) when you get home (just a little bit)
Yeah (just a little bit)

I’m about to give you all of my money
And all I’m askin’ in return honey
Is to give me my propers when you get home (just a . . .)
Yeah baby (just a . . .)
When you get home (just a little bit)

Ooo, your kisses, sweeter than honey
And guess what? So is my money
All I want you to do for me
Is give it to me when you get home (re, re, re ,re)
Yeah baby (re, re, re, re)
Whip it to me (respect, just a little bit)

When you get home, now (just a little bit)
R-E-S-P-E-C-T, find out what it means to me
R-E-S-P-E-C-T, take care, TCB
Oh (sock it to me . . .)
A little respect (sock it to me . . .)
Whoa, babe (just a little bit) a little respect (just a little bit)
I get tired (just a little bit) keep on tryin’ (just a little bit)
You’re runnin’ out of fools (just a little bit)
And I ain’t lyin’ ( just a little bit)
Re, re, re, re, when you come home re, re, re, re-spect . . .

2. Fancy Like

Sponsored by

My girl is bangin’
She’s so low maintenance
Don’t need no champagne poppin’ entertainment
Take her to Wendy’s
Can’t keep her off me
She wanna dip me like them fries in her Frosty
But every now and then when I get paid
I gotta spoil my baby with an upgrade (ay, ay, ay, ay)

Yeah, we fancy like Applebee’s on a date night
Got that Bourbon Street steak with the Oreo shake
Get some whipped cream on the top too
Two straws, one check, girl, I got you
Bougie like Natty in the styrofoam
Squeak-squeakin’ in the truck bed all the way home
Some Alabama-jamma, she my Dixieland delight (oh)
That’s how we do, how we do, fancy like, oh . . .

Don’t need no Tesla to impress her
My girl is happy rollin’ on a Vespa
Don’t need no mansion (ooh) to get romancin’ (woo)
She’s super fine, double wide, slow dancin’
But every now and then when I get paid
I gotta spoil my baby with an upgrade

Yeah, we fancy like Applebee’s on a date night
Got that Bourbon Street steak with the Oreo shake
Get some whipped cream on the top too
Two straws, one check, girl, I got you
Bougie like Natty in the styrofoam
Squeak-squeakin’ in the truck bed all the way home
Some Alabama-jamma, she my Dixieland delight (ay)
That’s how we do, how we do, fancy like

My new, clean blue jeans without the holes in ’em
Country kisses on my lips without the Skoal in ’em
Yeah, she probably gon’ be keeping some Victoria’s Secrets
Maybe a little Maybelline but she don’t need it
In the kitchen light radio slows down
Boxed wine and her up-do goes down

Yeah, we fancy like Applebee’s on a date night
Got that Bourbon Street steak with the Oreo shake
Get some whipped cream on the top too
Two straws, one check, girl, I got you
Bougie like Natty in the styrofoam
Squeak-squeakin’ in the truck bed all the way home
Some Alabama-jamma, she my Dixieland delight (ay)
That’s how we do, how we do, fancy like

3. Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da

Sponsored by

Desmond has a barrow in the marketplace
Molly is the singer in a band
Desmond says to Molly girl I like your face
And Molly says this as she takes him by the hand

Ob-la-di, ob-la-da life goes on, bra
La la how the life goes on
Ob la di, ob la da life goes on, bra
La la how the life goes on

Desmond takes a trolley to the jeweler’s store
Buys a twenty carat golden ring
Takes it back to Molly waiting at the door
And as he gives it to her she begins to sing

Ob-la-di, ob-la-da life goes on, bra
La la how the life goes on
Ob la di, ob la da life goes on, bra
La la how the life goes on

In a couple of years they have built a home sweet home
With a couple of kids running in the yard of Desmond and Molly Jones, ha ha ha ha

Happy ever after in the market place
Desmond lets the children lend a hand
Molly stays at home and does his pretty face
And in the evening she still sings it with the band

Ob-la-di, ob-la-da life goes on, bra
La la how the life goes on
Ob la di, ob la da life goes on, bra
La la how the life goes on

In a couple of years they have built a home sweet home
With a couple of kids running in the yard of Desmond and Molly Jones, ha ha ha ha

Happy ever after in the market place
Molly lets the children lend a hand
Desmond stays at home and does his pretty face
And in the evening she’s a singer with the band

Ob-la-di, ob-la-da life goes on, bra
La la how the life goes on
Ob la di, ob la da life goes on, bra
La la how the life goes on

And if you want some fun, sing ob-la-di-bla-da

Written by Paul McCartney and John Lennon


4. You’ve Got A Friend In Me

Sponsored

You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me
When the road looks rough ahead
And you’re miles and miles
From your nice warm bed
You just remember what your old pal said
Son, you’ve got a friend in me
Yeah, you’ve got a friend in me

You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me
You got troubles, I’ve got ’em too
There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for you
We stick together and see it through
’Cause you’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me

Some other folks might be
A little bit smarter than I am
Bigger and stronger too, maybe
But none of them will ever love you the way I do
Just me and you, boy

And as the years go by
Our friendship will never die
You’re gonna see it’s our destiny
You’ve got a friend in me

You just remember what you’re old pal said
You’ve got a friend in me

 

 

We stick together we can see it through
‘Cause you’ve got a friend in me

Some other folks might be
A little bit smarter than I am
Bigger and stronger too, maybe
But none of them will ever love you the way I do
Just me and you, babe

And as the years go by
Our friendship will never die
You’re gonna see it’s our destiny
You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me

Written by Randy Newman


5. I’m A Believer

Sponsored by 

I thought love was only true in fairy tales
Meant for someone else, but not for me
Love was out to get me
That’s the way it seemed
Disappointment haunted all my dreams

Then I saw her face, now I’m a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind
I’m in love and I’m a believer
I couldn’t leave her if I tried

I thought love was more or less a giving thing
The more I gave the less I got oh yeah
What’s the use in trying, all you get is pain
When I wanted sunshine, I got rain

Then I saw her face, now I’m a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind
I’m in love and I’m a believer
I couldn’t leave her if I tried

What’s the use in trying, all you get is pain
When I wanted sunshine, I got rain

Then I saw her face, now I’m a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind
I’m in love and I’m a believer
I couldn’t leave her if I tried

Then I saw her face, now I’m a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind
Now I’m a believer, yah, yah, yah, yah, yah, yah
I’m a believer
Then I saw her face, now I’m a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind

7. Don’t Stop Me Now

Tonight I’m gonna have myself a real good time, I feel alive
And the world I’ll turn it inside out, yeah
I’m floating around in ecstasy
So (don’t stop me now) (Don’t stop me)
’Cause I’m having a good time, having a good time

I’m a shooting star leaping through the sky
Like a tiger defying the laws of gravity
I’m a racing car passing by like Lady Godiva
I’m gonna go, go, go, there’s no stopping me

I’m burnin’ through the sky, yeah, 200 degrees
That’s why they call me Mister Fahrenheit
I’m traveling at the speed of light
I wanna make a supersonic man out of you

Don’t stop me now, I’m having such a good time, I’m having a ball
Don’t stop me now, if you wanna have a good time, just give me a call
Don’t stop me now, yes I’m havin’ a good time
Don’t stop me now, yes I’m havin’ a good time
I don’t want to stop at all

I’m a rocket ship on my way to Mars
On a collision course, I am a satellite, I’m out of control
I am a sex machine ready to reload
Like an atom bomb about to, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh explode

I’m burnin’ through the sky, yeah, 200 degrees
That’s why they call me Mister Fahrenheit
I’m traveling at the speed of light
I wanna make a supersonic man out of you

Don’t stop me, don’t stop me, Don’t stop me, hey, hey, hey
Don’t stop me, don’t stop me, Ooh, ooh, ooh, I like it
Don’t stop me, don’t stop me, have a good time, good time
Don’t stop me, don’t stop me, ah, let loose, honey, all right

I’m burnin’ through the sky, yeah, 200 degrees
That’s why they call me Mister Fahrenheit
I’m traveling at the speed of light
I wanna make a supersonic man out of you

Don’t stop me now, I’m having such a good time, I’m having a ball
Don’t stop me now, if you wanna have a good time just give me a call
Don’t stop me now ’cause I’m having a good time
Don’t stop me now, yes I’m havin’ a good time, I don’t want to stop at all

8. America The Beautiful

Sponsored by 

O beautiful for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain
America America
God shed His grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea

O beautiful for pilgrim feet
Whose stern impassioned stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness
America America
God mend thine every flaw
Confirm thy soul in self-control
Thy liberty in law

O beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife
Who more than self their country love
And mercy more than life
America America
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness
And every gain divine

O beautiful for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain
America America
God shed His grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea

Written by Katharine Lee Bates and Samuel Ward


9. Call Me Maybe

Sponsored by 

I threw a wish in the well, don’t ask me, I’ll never tell
I looked to you as it fell and now you’re in my way
I trade my soul for a wish, pennies and dimes for a kiss
I wasn’t looking for this but now you’re in my way
Your stare was holdin’, ripped jeans, skin was showin’
Hot night, wind was blowin’, where you think you’re going, baby?

Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy
But here’s my number, so call me maybe
It’s hard to look right at you, baby
But here’s my number, so call me maybe
Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy
But here’s my number, so call me maybe
And all the other boys try to chase me
But here’s my number, so call me maybe

You took your time with the call, I took no time with the fall
You gave me nothing at all but still, you’re in my way
I beg and borrow and steal at first sight, and it’s real
I didn’t know I would feel it but it’s in my way
Your stare was holdin’, ripped jeans, skin was showin’
Hot night, wind was blowin’, where you think you’re going, baby?

Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy
But here’s my number, so call me maybe
It’s hard to look right at you, baby
But here’s my number, so call me maybe
Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy
But here’s my number, so call me maybe
And all the other boys try to chase me
But here’s my number, so call me maybe

Before you came into my life, I missed you so bad
I missed you so bad, I missed you so, so bad
Before you came into my life, I missed you so bad
And you should know that I missed you so, so bad

It’s hard to look right at you baby
But here’s my number, so call me maybe
Hey I just met you, and this is crazy
But here’s my number, so call me, maybe

And all the other boys try to chase me
But here’s my number, so call me, maybe
Before you came into my life, I missed you so bad
I missed you so bad, I missed you so, so bad
Before you came into my life, I missed you so bad
And you should know that
So call me maybe

10. Footloose

Sponsored by 

Been working so hard, I’m punching my card
Eight hours, for what? Oh, tell me what I got
I gotten this feeling that time’s just holding me down
I’ll hit the ceiling or else I’ll tear up this town, tonight I gotta

Cut loose, footloose
Kick off your Sunday shoes
Please, Louise pull me up off my knees
Jack, get back c’mon, before we crack
Lose your blues, everybody cut footloose

You’re playing so cool, obeying every rule
Dig way down in your heart, you’re burning, yearning for some
Somebody to tell you that life ain’t passing you by
I’m trying to tell you, it will if you don’t even try, you can fly if you’d only

Cut loose, footloose
Kick off your Sunday shoes
Ooh-wee, Marie, shake it, shake it for me
Whoa, Milo, C’mon, c’mon let’s go
Lose your blues, everybody cut footloose

Cut footloose, cut footloose, cut footloose
We got to turn it around
And put your feet on the ground
Now take a hold of your soul, I’m turning it loose

Cut loose, footloose
Kick off your Sunday shoes
Please, Louise pull me up off my knees
Jack, get back c’mon, before we crack
Lose your blues, everybody cut footloose

Cut loose, footloose
Kick off your Sunday shoes
Please, Louise pull me up off my knees
Jack, get back c’mon, before we crack
Lose your blues

Everybody cut, everybody cut (x 4)
Footloose

13. Do You Hear The People Sing

Sponsored by 

Do you hear the people sing
Singing a song of angry men
It is the music of a people
Who will not be slaves again
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes

Will you join in our crusade
Who will be strong and stand with me
Beyond the barricade
Is there a world you long to see
Then join in the fight that will give you
The right to be free

Do you hear the people sing
Singing a song of angry men
It is the music of a people
Who will not be slaves again
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes

Will you give all you can give
So that our banner may advance
Some will fall and some will live
Will you stand up and take your chance
The blood of the martyrs will water
The meadows of France

Do you hear the people sing
Singing a song of angry men
It is the music of a people
Who will not be slaves again
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes

Well, it’s one for the money, two for the show
Three to get ready now go, cat, go
But don’t you step on my blue suede shoes
Well you can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes

Well, you can knock me down, step on my face
Slander my name all over the place
Do anything that you want to do
But uh-uh honey, lay off of them shoes
Don’t you step on my blue suede shoes
Well you can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes
Now let’s go cats (oh walk the dogs)

You can burn my house, steal my car
Drink my liquor from an old fruit-jar
Do anything that you want to do
But uh-uh honey, lay off of my shoes
Don’t you step on my blue suede shoes
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes
Rock it

Well, it’s one for the money, two for the show
Three to get ready now go, go, go
But don’t you step on my blue suede shoes
Well you can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes

17. Waterloo

Sponsored by 

My my, at Waterloo Napoleon did surrender
Oh yeah, and I have met my destiny in quite a similar way
The history book on the shelf is always repeating itself

Waterloo, I was defeated, you won the war
Waterloo, promise to love you forever more
Waterloo, couldn’t escape if I wanted to
Waterloo, knowing my fate is to be with you
Wa-wa-wa-wa-Waterloo, finally facing my Waterloo

My my, I tried to hold you back but you were stronger
Oh yeah, and now it seems my only chance is giving up the fight
And how could I ever refuse, I feel like I win when I lose

Waterloo, I was defeated, you won the war
Waterloo, promise to love you forever more
Waterloo, couldn’t escape if I wanted to
Waterloo, knowing my fate is to be with you
Wa-wa-wa-wa-Waterloo, finally facing my Waterloo

So how could I ever refuse
I feel like I win when I lose

Waterloo, couldn’t escape if I wanted to
Waterloo, knowing my fate is to be with you
Wa-Wa-Wa-Wa-Waterloo, finally facing my Waterloo
Ooh-ooh, Waterloo, knowing my fate is to be with you
Wa-Wa-Wa-Wa-Waterloo, finally facing my Waterloo

18. That’s Life

Sponsored by

That’s life (That’s life)
That’s what all the people say
You’re riding high in April, shot down in May
But I know I’m gonna change that tune
When I’m back on top, back on top in June

I said that’s life (That’s life)
And as funny as it may seem
Some people get their kicks stomping on a dream
But I don’t let it, let it get me down
Cause this fine old world, it keeps spinnin’ around

I’ve been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet
A pawn and a king
I’ve been up and down and over and out
And I know one thing
Each time I find myself flat on my face
I pick myself up and get back in the race

That’s life (That’s life)
I tell you, I can’t deny it
I thought of quitting, baby but my heart just ain’t gonna buy it
And if I didn’t think it was worth one single try
I’d jump right on a big bird and then I’d fly

I’ve been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet
A pawn and a king
I’ve been up and down and over and out
And I know one thing
Each time I find myself laying flat on my face
I pick myself up and get back in the race

That’s life (That’s life)
That’s life and I can’t deny it
Many times I thought of cutting out but my heart won’t buy it
But if there’s nothing shaking come this here July
I’m gonna roll myself up in a big ball and die
My, my

20. What Makes You Beautiful

Sponsored by

You’re insecure, don’t know what for
You’re turning heads when you walk through the do-o-or
Don’t need make-up to cover up
Being the way that you are is enou-ou-ough

Everyone else in the room can see it
Everyone else, but you, ooh

Baby, you light up my world like nobody else
The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed
But when you smile at the ground, it ain’t hard to tell
You don’t know, oh-oh
You don’t know you’re beautiful
If only you saw what I can see
You’ll understand why I want you so desperately
Right now I’m lookin’ at you, and I can’t believe
You don’t know, oh-oh
You don’t know you’re beautiful, oh-oh
That’s what makes you beautiful

So c-come on, you got it wrong
To prove I’m right, I put it in a song
I don’t know why you’re being shy
And turn away when I look into your eye-eye-eyes
Everyone else in the room can see it
Everyone else, but you, ooh

Baby, you light up my world like nobody else
The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed
But when you smile at the ground, it ain’t hard to tell
You don’t know, oh-oh
You don’t know you’re beautiful
If only you saw what I can see
You’ll understand why I want you so desperately
Right now I’m lookin’ at you, and I can’t believe
You don’t know, oh-oh
You don’t know you’re beautiful, oh-oh
That’s what makes you beautiful

Na-na-na, na-na-na, na, na, na, na-na-na, na-na-na
Na-na-na, na-na-na, na, na, na, na-na-na, na-na-na

Baby, you light up my world like nobody else
The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed
But when you smile at the ground, it ain’t hard to tell
You don’t know, oh-oh
You don’t know you’re beautiful
Baby, you light up my world like nobody else
The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed
But when you smile at the ground, it ain’t hard to tell
You don’t know, oh-oh
You don’t know you’re beautiful
If only you saw what I can see
You’ll understand why I want you so desperately
Right now I’m lookin’ at you, and I can’t believe
You don’t know, oh-oh
You don’t know you’re beautiful, oh-oh
You don’t know you’re beautiful
That’s what makes you beautiful

21. Na Na Na

Sponsored by

Woke up whistling like the wind blows
Looking out my window just to see the shine
Baby, you might call it crazy, how I’m acting lately
Skipping through the sky

I see so clearly why I’m always feeling free
So I sleep when my dreams looking like reality

Don’t it feel like na, na na na na na na na na, na, na na na na
Don’t it feel like na, na na na na na na na na, na, na na na na
Don’t it feel like na, na na na na na na na na, na, na na na na
Don’t it feel like na, na na na na na na na na, na, na na na na
Don’t it feel like

I know where the greener grass grows
You’ll just have to follow to the other side
So let’s go, tip toe on a tight rope
Falling’s only natural, just spread your wings and fly

You’ll see so clearly why I’m always feeling free
So I sleep when my dreams looking like reality

Don’t it feel like na, na na na na na na na na, na, na na na na
Don’t it feel like na, na na na na na na na na, na, na na na na
Don’t it feel like na, na na na na na na na na, na, na na na na
Don’t it feel like na, na na na na na na na na, na, na na na na
Don’t it feel like

Break it down like
Oh, way-oh (Hey, hey, hey)
Break it down like
Oh, way-oh (Yeah, yeah)
All around like
Oh, way-oh (Hey, hey, hey)
Sing it loud like
Oh, way-oh (Ah ooh-ooh-ooh)

Don’t it feel like na, na na na na na na na na, na, na na na na
Make it sound like na, na na na na na na na na, na, na na na na
All around like na, na na na na na na na na, na, na na na na
Sing it loud like na, na na na na na na na na, na, na na na na
Don’t it feel like

22. Let It Be

Sponsored by 

When I find myself in times of trouble Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be

And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

And when the brokenhearted people living in the world agree
There will be an answer, let it be

For though they may be parted there is still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer, let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Yeah there will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

And when the night is cloudy there is still a light that shines on me
Shine on ’til tomorrow, let it be

I wake up to the sound of music Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be, yeah

Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be
Oh there will be an answer, let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be
There will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah let it be
Whisper words of wisdom
Let it be

23. You Can’t Stop The Beat

Sponsored by

You can’t stop an avalanche as it races down the hill
You can try to stop the seasons, girl but you know you never will
And you can try to stop my dancin’ feet but I just cannot stand still
’Cause the world keeps spinning ‘round and ’round
And my heart’s keeping time to the speed of sound
I was lost ’til I heard the drums then I found my way

’Cause you can’t stop the beat ever since this whole world began
A woman found out if she shook it she could shake up a man
And so I’m gonna shake and shimmy it the best that I can today
’Cause you cant stop the motion of the ocean
Or the sun in the sky
You can wonder if you wanna, but I never ask why
And if you try to hold me down I’m gonna spit in your eye and say
That you can’t stop the beat

You can’t stop the river as it rushes to the sea
You can try to stop the hands of time, but you know it just can’t be
And if they try to stop us, Seaweed, I’ll call the N double A C.P.
’Cause the world keeps spinnin’ round and round
And my heart’s keepin’ time to the speed of sound
I was lost ’til I heard the drums, then I found my way
’Cause you can’t stop the beat

Ever since we first saw the light
A man and woman like to shake it on a Saturday night
So I’m gonna shake and shimmy it with all of my might today
’Cause you cant stop the motion of the ocean or the rain from above
You can try to stop the paradise we’re dreamin’ of
But you cannot stop the rhythm of two hearts in love to stay
’Cause you can’t stop the beat!

You can’t stop my happiness, ’cause I like the way I am
And you just can’t stop my knife and fork when I see a Christmas Ham
So if you don’t like the way I look, well, I just don’t give a damn
’Cause the world keeps spinnin’ round and round
And my heart’s keepin’ time to the speed of sound
I was lost ’til I heard the drums, then I found my way

’Cause you can’t stop the beat
Ever since this old world began
A woman found out if she shook it she could shake up a man
And so I’m gonna shake and shimmy it the best that I can today
’Cause you can’t stop the motion of the ocean or the sun in the sky
You can wonder, if you wanna, but I never ask why
And if you try to hold me down, I’m gonna spit in your eye and say
That you can’t stop the beat

Oh, Oh, Oh
You can’t stop today (No)
As it comes speeding down the tracks (oooh, child yes)
Yesterday is history (be gone)
And it’s never comin’ back (look ahead, ’cause)
’Cause tomorrow is a brand new day, and it don’t know white from black (yeah)
’Cause the world keeps spinnin’ round and round
And my heart’s keepin’ time to the speed of sound
I was lost ’til I heard the drums, then I found my way
’Cause you can’t stop the beat

Ever since we first saw the light
A man and woman like to shake it on a Saturday night
So I’m gonna shake and shimmy it with all of my might today
’Cause you can’t stop the motion of the ocean, or the rain from above
They can try to stop the paradise we’re dreamin’ of
But you cannot stop the rhythm of two hearts in love to stay
’Cause you can’t stop the beat

Aah, aah, aah
Ahh, ahh, ahh
Ahh, ahh, ahh ahh
Ever since we first saw the sign
A man or woman like to shake it when the day is ooh ooh
And so we’re gonna shake and shimmy it and have some fun today
’Cause you can’t stop the motion of the ocean or the rain from above
You can try to stop the paradise we’re dreamin’ of
But you cannot stop the rhythm of two hearts in love to stay
’Cause you can’t stop the beat
You can’t stop the beat
You can’t stop the beat
You can’t stop the beat
You can’t stop the beat

25. This Is Me

Sponsored by 

I am not a stranger to the dark
Hide away, they say
’Cause we don’t want your broken parts
I’ve learned to be ashamed of all my scars
Run away, they say
No one’ll love you as you are
But I won’t let them break me down to dust
I know that there’s a place for us
For we are glorious

When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown ’em out
I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I’m meant to be, this is me

Look out ’cause here I come
And I’m marching on to the beat I drum
I’m not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh

Another round of bullets hits my skin
Well, fire away ’cause today, I won’t let the shame sink in
We are bursting through the barricades and
Reaching for the sun (we are warriors)
Yeah, that’s what we’ve become (yeah, that’s what we’ve become)
I won’t let them break me down to dust
I know that there’s a place for us
For we are glorious

When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown ’em out
I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I’m meant to be, this is me

Look out ’cause here I come
And I’m marching on to the beat I drum
I’m not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh
This is me

And I know that I deserve your love
(Oh-oh-oh-oh) there’s nothing I’m not worthy of
(Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh)
When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown ’em out
This is brave, this is bruised
This is who I’m meant to be, this is me

Look out ‘cause here I come
And I’m marching on to the beat I drum
I’m not scared to be seen, I make no apologies, this is me
Oh, oh, oh, oh (oh, oh, oh, oh) Oh, oh, oh, oh (oh, oh, oh, oh)
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
This is me

26. What a Wonderful World

Sponsored by 

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shakin’ hands saying “How do you do?”
They’re really saying “I love you”

I hear babies cry, I watch them grow
They’ll learn much more than I’ll ever know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world

I think to myself what a wonderful world, oh yeah
