(ALL) MY LIFE

All my life I've being a good man, sign on the dotted line ; like a good man supposed to do,
and girl I am so in-love with you; so I did it for you and I did it for two.

( I've ) being by your mama today, she was smiling from ear to ear, thank you son she say, for
taking care of my daughter; taking care of my girl, my only girl.

All my life I've being a good person, obeyed the law so I could always get back to you ( ah ) just
like a good man should do; because girl I am so in-love with you.

Today I stop by the Grocery store, saw your father when I entered the door, he shook my hand
and he gave me a hug, while we thank the lord above.

So good; so good,
and I thank you for my son, he brought me joy and a piece of mind; thank you lord for my son.

Yes.All my life I try to walk on the right side of the track, giving no reasons to be looking back.
because girl I am so in-love with you.I did it for you and I did it for me.

I've being by your parents today; mama's got a smile from ear to ear,daddy shook my hands and
gave me a hug; while we thank the lord above, for his daughter, my girl; you're my girl.

Dance

Hello friends I've got a story to tell you, can you spare me some time? And sit right here beside me, and share in a bottle of wine.
Chorus
(now if you really want to dance, tell you what you need to do, buy yourself a beer, raise your glass into the air, raise them like you just don't; give a hoot hoot; give me what? Give a hoot hoot.)
Little Jack Horner; sitting in the corner, eating is cherry pie, now Lord knows I don't know what you are thinking, but I know I wouldn't be telling you lies.
Chorus (__________________)
Dance baby dance; who wa wa… dance baby dance, did you say you want to dance?
Jack and Jill went up the hill; Jill forgot to take her pill, Jill got sick little after; Jack turned around and fell with laughter.
Chorus (____________________)
1234 someone's knocking at my door
3456 I'm about to get my kicks
