Lyrics

Upside Down

Written By: Marvin Glover,Mark Jensen

“Upside Down”

Chorus:
Upside down yeah, that’s the game, I’ll take another pill and get back to you
Inside out, around again, you’ll never know the score ‘til you’ve play the fool

Verse:
I’m taking on the world, the one I’ve left behind, Every days-another lie, another little play of mind
I spend my nights in bars, my friend the credit card, look to the other side, the grass just turns green

Turn on my video, the only world I know, It puts in the know, to find my back door
I spend my nights alone, talk on the telephone, Everyday, another way, for the democratic status quo

Chorus:
Upside down yeah that’s the way, I’ll take another pill and I’ll get back to you
Inside out, around again, you’ll never know the score ‘til you play the fool: (Repeat)

Bridge:
There’s a new solution, there’s a new solution, there’s a new solution
There’s a new solution, there’s a new solution, there’s a new solution
There’s a new solution, there’s a new solution, there’s a new solution
There’s a new solution, there’s a new solution, there’s a new solution, Go man go!

Chorus:
Upside down yeah that’s the game, I’ll take another pill and get back to you
Inside out, around again, you’ll never know the score ‘til you play the fool: (Repeat)

Upside Down!

Rhythm to the Rhyme

Written By: Marvin Glover,Greg Cortez

Verse:
Never thought I’d feel, the way I felt
I kept my thoughts up on a shelf
Like a sugar tip rocket

Sometimes I just can’t, help myself
The thought of you and no one else
Sealed with a kiss and a promise

Chorus:
Baby your divine and I’m so glad you are mine to keep
And till the end of time, you’ll be the rhythm to my rhyme, ya see

Verse:
A love like ours, was made to last
The lonely times far in the past
Put away in my pocket
Sometimes I just can’t, help myself
I love you and no one else
Sealed with a kiss and a promise

Chorus:
Baby your divine and I’m so glad you are mine to keep
And till the end of time, you’ll be the rhythm to my rhyme, ya see

Bridge:
I can recall… the way moved me
Something so strong… that you couldn’t lose me

Chorus:
Baby your divine and I’m so glad you are mine to keep
And till the end of time, you’ll be the rhythm to my rhyme, ya see
And till the end of time, you’ll be the rhythm to my rhyme, ya see

These are the Times

Written By: Marvin Glover

When I first saw you at the pier
The choice made,
It all came clear
I had to find out, just who you are

My heart would race
My mind in space
You had found that special place,
Way deep down inside my heart,

Chorus
These are the times,
That I hold on to love
These are the times

Verse
Walks along the beach at night
Never let you out of sight
Learning more about you from my car
Deeper down, below the skin
Warmer thoughts were coming in
I'm so glad that you let me in

Chorus
These are the times,
That I hold on to love
These are the times

Bridge
No more sadness, and no more fear
No more drama, I must stand clear
No more reasons not to believe
And now I’m open to receive

Chorus
These are the times,
These are the times
These are the times,
These are the times
