Nice to meet you Mr. Boom Boom
I see I got you on the good foot
You’re so sly I could read you like a good book
So step on close, let me get a real good look

When you get down you make me get up
I can tell by the way that you smell
My senses say your sexy as hell
Woo Woo

I see you got a little boom boom mama
She likes to shaka shaka what she’s gotta
And I bet you like like those other sisters
When they double time ya boom boom mister

As they play catch the weasel all night long
They shout the chorus of this song
That has no words, no words to be found
Just A-E-I-O-U and wow wow

(spoken) I bet that you’re a gambling man

You play ladies like a boxed bet
Trifecta, huh, you ain't done yet
Mr. Boom Boom goes to parlay
Watch the winners circle join your members only party

Watch them shaka shaka what they gotta
And I know you like them other sisters
who like to double time the boom boom mister
(oh yeah)

As you play catch the weasel all night long
You shout the chorus of this song
You ain't got no love, no love to be found
Just A-E-I-O-U... bom chika wow wow

Track Name: Boss Hogg
While playing in the field I rolled up stepped out
reached out my hand and pulled a lackadaisy
Yeah he wanted to rock n roll, fast and slow­ so my mind would blow
Yeah it drives me crazy

CHORUS:

So move over rover let me see that clover
Shake it up and down until you roll over
So move over rover let me see that clover
Shake it up and down until you roll over

While I was looking for a reaction to mine
I just wanted some squeeze
Didn’t think about the juice
To my surprise a voice came ringing out from inside
I just wanted some squeeze
Didn’t think about the juice

It said we didn’t even try try try
I’m beating here but I can’t really lie lie
It said we didn’t even try try try
I’m beating here but I can’t really lie lie

(BRIDGE)

It’s worth it
So push/ push, push, push
Watch it pour
You’ll never need to do more

Once you know how to do it
Theres really nothing to it
Just listen to your heart, it’s sets the beat apart
Track Name: Can't Get No Release
RYAN: My mama told me
When I was just a little boy
She said

SARAH: Son if you wanna be heard now
You better get up and make some noise

RYAN: So I threw my arms up
And I screamed my lungs out
But nobody seemed to care
That’s when I found out
It’s a crazy world out there
Yeah, I’m gonna lose my mind
And that’s when mama she said

CHORUS:

There must be something I can hold onto
You know my search will never cease
There must be something I can hold onto
Cause I can’t get no release

SARAH: My daddy told me
When I was just a Lil' Shrimp
He’d say

RYAN: You got to be a strong independent woman
Don’t take no bullshit from nobody else

SARAH: I’d say papa don’t you preach and try to understand
If this world is my oyster
I gotta dig for all I can
But each time I try so hard
All I’m picking up is sand
That slips straight through my shrimpy hands
That’s when he’d say

CHORUS:

There must be something I can hold onto
You know my search will never cease
There must be something I can hold onto
Cause I can’t get no release

Breakdown (instrumental)

EXTENDED CHORUS:

There must be something I can hold onto
You know my search will never cease
There must be something I can hold onto
Up from the west down to the east
There must be something I can hold onto
Wish I could find a little peace
There must be something I can hold onto
‘Cause I can’t get no release
Track Name: Get To Know You Better
SARAH: You’re like a flash of light
When you’re coming out that sky with a million times its bite
I’m anticipating the big bang
Here you leave me all alone just like when this earth began

Oh yeah you move so slow
And I never really know which way you’re gonna go
Why don’t you tell me what’s up
Before this passion will erode I wanna explode

PRECHORUS:

Don’t fight this passion
When it’s just a spark
or you’re never gonna know what hit you
I believe in you
So believe in me too
or we’re never gonna go
I see you coming round­ then you come and go

CHORUS:

How can I get to know you better?
How can I get to know you better?

MICAH: I waited so long for you
or maybe someone just like you
to come my way, help me see some brighter days
ok let's get right to the point, your lips on my lips, hips on my hips
but first a date, another than wait here, hold my arm while we skate
then comes the part that takes years, patience & fears, joy & tears
but lady I want you to know I'll be right here
And that's so far for sure, but right now I really really really got to know
how we can fuse, implode, connect, then ka boom and explode

PRECHORUS:

Don’t fight this passion
When it’s just a spark
or you’re never gonna know what hit you
I believe in you
So believe in me too
or we’re never gonna go
I see you coming round­ then you come and go

CHORUS:

How can I get to know you better?
How can I get to know you better?

SARAH: like a flash of light
MICAH: Lighting strike to the center of my eye, first time I saw, felt like mi' amore
SARAH: I’m anticipating the big bang
MICAH: Yeah so am I, why you think I fight with all my might to keep you like, like in my life
SARAH: Oh yeah you move so slow
MICAH: Baby I was cursed, forced to work away from home, but I was thinking of you ­­all along
SARAH: Why don’t you tell me what’s up
MICAH: Lady that's what I'm asking you, I wanna know if us two can just just...

BREAK (SARAH)

How do I get to know you
Could I ever show you this thing in my heart I cannot describe
It feels like an earthquake
When you make my body shake
With a force that Mother Nature cannot deny
Now that you got my groove
Why, why don’t, why don’t you make your move?

Are you ready? Are you ready? C’MON!
Track Name: Central Ave Blues
This city’s trying to make ends meet
Blocks full of people with no homes or heat
This is a city living on the street
Young baby mamas with younger mouths to feed

This is a city that begs and pleads
For a little fairness and equality
Just past the skyline it’s a different scene
Stand in my shoes and you’ll see what I mean
Less than 1 block away from extreme poverty
There are men and women with diamond gold jewelry
Driving them luxury cars to those houses by the sea

Did you ever need
Or are your pockets running deep
Ask what you can give
To help your brother live

(Bridge)

Hope is like love
Something you can’t see but you gotta believe
Change is gonna come
In the darkest night there’s always a light
Let me give it to you
I wanna give it to you one time, two times
Watch our city shine

Rap Verse:

No words, your power is non-flip. The run pattern, throw it at them full speed, killing greed in the path. Why deny the truth? Living proof of victory: Django free. Shield of hope protecting me. Hearing words spoken before I awoke. Impossible you say? My experience, I'm deep in, where you [are] on the fence. No pretense, I be in the moves. Led by the spirit, freaky y'all, want to hear it? Real life on the plains, or what feels - a field of playing, run and catch, grow and fetch. Big bucks for running in circles, bunch of Urkles. Don't know what the color purple means, royal things keep dancing in your dreams. For goodness sake we can get more awake in the wake before. And after we can always take back what we own. Too late, seed planted in dome. Or noodle, I don't fool you, spool or tool you for anything. I know my source, not the magazine or reporter sorts. Some use words for sport, I use them [for the] right to fight, the dark for the light, Skywalker style.
Track Name: Fine Fly Woman
I said that you did me right,
Since that first night.
The way you picked me up and spun me around the town, wooo!
I thought you were out of sight!
Yeah, yeah, your love is so good.
To feel this real with no fear
I never thought I could, but now I know I should.
Now I’m finally living the life, and you’re here by my side.

You know it took a long time, but it was worth the fight
To be an all night do right woman with a do right man.
Yeah, yeah I know for sure I found the love I was hoping, searching for And I found so much more.
Now I finally understand what it takes to be a fine fly woman.

CHORUS:

I want you
You’re a fine fly man
I want you
You’re so so fine
You’re a fine fly man hey hey
You make me say yes, yes, yes

You know we’ll never know what the future holds
But you gave me your word and I gave you mine and that’s more than gold
It feels so good.
To feel this real with no fear
I never thought I should, but now I know I could.
Now I finally understand what it takes to be a fine fly woman.

CHORUS:

I want you
You’re a fine fly man
I want you
You’re so so fine
You’re a fine fly man hey hey
Track Name: Vidalia
I once had a dream that felt so real
A vision I'm wishing will know that what I’m feeling is true
That dream is you

I once made a wish straight from my soul
A need like a seed I planted and it grew
That wish is you

CHORUS:

And I don't ever worry if you will stay
Or walk away
Or times you'll say we're through
Because you love me too

And I don't ever worry how lost it seems
Provoked by dreams
Or if life deems them true
Because you love me too
I know you love me too

I once felt the glow from a star so bright
My mind was closed up and the blinds wouldn't let the light shine through
But somehow you do

I once held a rose so fresh in bloom
It reminded my heart of your kindness and it made room for two
My lovely my you

CHORUS:

And I don't ever worry if you will stay
Or walk away
Or times you'll say we're through
Because you love me too

And I don't ever worry how lost it seems
Provoked by dreams
Or if life deems them true
Because you love me too
