Biography

Benjamin Franklin?

After hearing his name, most people respond with a giggle and wait on him to reveal his real identity. Amused, they sit around only to find out that the name is indeed real and receive the pleasure of discovering that there’s even more to interest about this charming, charismatic guy.

Benjamin was born in Houston, TX and grew up with a big imagination and HUGE dreams. When he was a child, Benjamin would stay indoors creating musicals with his collection of happy meal toy characters and drawing fanciful blueprints for his idealistic amusement park instead of going outside and playing kickball with the “normal” kids.

See, Benjamin was definitely not normal….and he realized this at a very early age.

At the age of seven, his parents enrolled him into piano lessons as an outlet to his never-ending creative mind. Although piano turned out not to be his niche, his instructor happened to be the director of his church’s children choir, which he was very interested in, but wasn’t quite sure if singing was something he actually could do. After talking with his father about his interest in the choir, Benjamin finally asked his surprised instructor if he could join. A couple of days later, he attended his first rehearsal and left that same night with his first solo.

He performed that solo on Mother’s Day to a five hundred plus member congregation, leaving them on their feet, and coming to the realization that he wanted to become a world-class singer and entertainer.

Thereafter, he got involved in anything related to music. He joined his elementary and high school choirs, his middle school and high school bands (where in high school he became head Drum Major), and was accepted into the prestigious Fort Bend Boys Choir of Texas. By his senior year of high school, Benjamin finally decided it was time to seriously pursue his dream of becoming a singer. Realizing he was exceptionally gifted, he felt he could finally make his life-long aspiration a reality.

He began doing talent shows and going to auditions around the Houston area, then about a year later, recording demo projects and booking shows performing for large crowds, sometimes in the thousands, and also finding himself opening for the Houston breed rapper Mike Jones.

With his matchless blend of R&B, pop, and hip-hop and his sincere, straightforward lyrics, this singer/songwriter is determined to let the world hear what he has to sing about. And with his massive amount of creativity, drive, and determination, in due time, they will.

Lyrics

Just Say That You Want Me

Written By: Benjamin Franklin

I’ve been noticing lately how the air feels a little odd
(Could it be, that you’re fienin’ for me)
And your body wants to tell it but you know how to keep it calm!
I put my money on it if I made a move you’ll like it too
But I’ll wait and make you wait till you realize it’s your move

(I know)
What you feelin’ cause the sense don’t lie
(You know)
That you tryna show me on the sly
(We know)
That it’s harder on the second time and you can’t deny what you feel inside
(I know)
That you feel you can’t even speak
(Of you)
Wanting me cause you let me free
But I’m giving you a second chance
And the future lies in your hands
All you gotta say…

Just say that you want me
I’ve been what you lookin’ for
You can have me
Just let know I’m at your door
You know
That you let me go once before
Admit it then you’ll be in my arms
(repeat)

Seems like I’m asking for a lot but I worked and gave you all I got
(Now it’s your turn)
To show me what you want it to be
And I ain’t got all day (No!)
Plain as day I can see it all in your eyes
Like a thief that robbed a bank with no disguise
(I caught you)
In stare, simply declare that you want me yes you do

(I know)
What you feelin’ cause the sense don’t lie
(You know)
That you tryna show me on the sly
(We know)
That it’s harder on the second time and you can’t deny what you feel inside
(I know)
That you feel you can’t even speak
(Of you)
Wanting me cause you let me free
But I’m giving you another chance
And the future lies in your hands
All you gotta say…

Just say that you want me
I’ve been what you lookin’ for
You can have me
Just let know I’m at your door
You know
That you let me go once before
Admit it then you’ll be in my arms
(repeat)

And you can’t tell me that you don’t dream my kiss
On your lips
(I know you do! I do too!)
And you can’t make me believe you don’t want to be
With me
(Just say it)

Just say that you want me
(repeat)

Just say that you want me
I’ve been what you lookin’ for
You can have me
Just let know I’m at your door
You know
That you let me go once before
Admit it then you’ll be in my arms
(repeat)

Don't Think

Written By: Benjamin Franklin

Don’t think that I’m not into you
Because I’m into you
Just not the time to do
Do what you want me to
You asking me to be with you
For me to sleep with you
You know I want to
It’s just not the time to do

I’m a man who goes in with a plan to know his woman (woman)
What my body needs don’t supersede that no (nah)
Please understand that I wanna give it in but I just can’t (just can't)
Cause one day is not enough to give it all

I’m not the average guy
There’s more than what you eye
Even though I’m fly
I’m not an overnight hit and run man
I wanna give you what you need
Every bit of me
Take it slowly
Let it come with ease
Cause I know then
(You’ll never forget, so don’t think)

Don’t think that I’m not into you
Because I’m into you
Just not the time to do
Do what you want me to
You asking me to be with you
For me to sleep with you
You know I want to
It’s just not the time to do

What should I think if you give it easy without working (work, work, work, work, work)
(My body’s saying “take, take, take”
But I’m gon wait, wait, wait)
Till I feel that the time is true
(You smelling real good)
Got the perfume strong
(Walking round the place)
Tryna turn me on
You want it (want it)
Well you got it (got it)
But not quite yet, let me think about it

I’m not the average guy
There’s more than what you eye
Even though I’m fly
I’m not an overnight hit and run man
I wanna give you what you need
Every bit of me
Take it slowly
Let it come with ease
Cause I know then
(You’ll never forget, so don’t think)

Don’t think that I’m not into you
Because I’m into you
Just not the time to do
Do what you want me to
You asking me to be with you
For me to sleep with you
You know I want to
It’s just not the time to do

We can take our time, time, time
Wait until you’re mine, mine, mine
And I’ll be all on you
When the feeling’s right, right, right
We can go all night, night, night
And I’ll be all on you

Don’t think that I’m not into you
Because I’m into you
Just not the time to do
Do what you want me to
You asking me to be with you
For me to sleep with you
You know I want to
It’s just not the time to do
(repeat)

I Want U

Written By: Benjamin Franklin

Since the very first time
I laid my eyes
You stayed on my mind
And that is why
I want u

Girl I don’t think it’s very hard to see
Riding, dining, and spending time with me
Where you go is the place I wanna be
Happy I’m when I’m in the air you breath

(You remind me of the stars)
In the sky
(You shine so bright)
I can’t help but stare all through the night
(Just the way you are)
Is a sight
(That burned a picture in my mind)
Steady saying that I want u
Oooh I want u

(Oooh I want u)
Baby don’t deny me
Asking that you satisfy this need
(Oooh I want u)
You’re special and you know it’s true
I can see it oooh I want u

Could there really be a possibility (possibility)
That you were made especially for me you
Fascinate me this rare affinity
No one like you designed exclusively

(If I was to die)
Die on this day
(I’d feel as my life)
Was not complete without, longing for you
(The valves of my heart)
Declare today
That I’m yearning you, it’s hurting to
Want you so badly!

(Oooh I want u)
Baby don’t deny me
Asking that you satisfy this need
(Oooh I want u)
You’re special and you know it’s true
I can see it oooh I want u

I want u (16x’s)

(Oooh I want u)
Baby don’t deny me
Asking that you satisfy this need
(Oooh I want u)
You’re special and you know it’s true
I can see it oooh I want u
