Lyrics

Rocket

Written By: Written and Performed by: Jasper James


I’ve been back and forth from New York to London-
Hit Berlin to Dublin like it ain’t nothing
I get down with the kids from Japan-been to Heaven to Santos
Out to Van dam to dance

I’ve been caught out with fuzzy logic but I’ll assist you
To make you understand-I’ll represent for you

Come on let’s rocket baby
Come on let’s all go crazy
Get down with my sons and ladies
Brooklyn’s got more bounce, bounce to the ounce

The beat be pumping like I wish you would
Bangladesh to my hood, you know it’s all
Now pay attention, I’ll say it in reverse
You won’t mind if I curse
Now maybe I won’t, or maybe I will
The freshest m____ they be where I chill

Come on let’s rocket baby
Come on let’s all go crazy
Get down with my sons and ladies
Brooklyn’s got more bounce, bounce to the ounce

Sex in the city, late rendezvous
Party on the roof top-bbq
Bratty kids screaming on the side walk crying
Girl’s chewing gum to the blare of the siren
Big haired chicks coming from Long Island
Short, shorts mixing it with medallions

Adiddas, long socks- nice arms tank tops
And the boys they love it when the beat goes..

It's On

Written By: Jasper James

Heavy laden’s got ya
Burdened down an’
Feel you’ll find the answers
In hope and sound yeah
When you’re feeling angry
And don’t know why
Know the Angel’s business
Is passed the clouds yeah

It’s On, It’s On, It’s On, It’s On,
It’s On, It’s On, It’s On, It’s On

Now you’re stepping, stepping
Step alive there
Here the trumpets sounding
In your mind Dear
When you’re feeling lonely
And don’t know why
You can la-di-da-di
In the place now

Yeah

Here the mighty trumpets
Singing loud
Feel the Holy Spirit
Lift you high an’
Go from heavy laden
To burdens light
Pass the sideliner
New born child

It’s On, It’s On, It’s On, It’s On,
It’s On, It’s On, It’s On, It’s On

Feel, feel
You real, you’re not alone
I’m by your side
