I hail from the A-town.
I represent the Southern Dream, Ladylike yet intelligent between
The ‘sheets’ if you know I mean, I like to write special things

I’m representing you prrroper, never cheat, dedicated to you,
Always real and true

Southern Pin-up, Southern Pin-up girl
Southern Pin-up, Southern Pin-up girl

Round the way style with international proportions,
U.S. your gonna have to take a course in,
comprehension so you can understand
Some folks got reprimands, talking more than some acres and a mule
No time to be cool, create economic stability
Diaspora can you hear me?!!

Oh no! Why does she walk so slow?
Why does she talk so bold?
College Park and Old National, ATL(all the world)

If I get a deal maybe I’ll take it back, but for now-- I’m on some Oprah sh*t
Put myself on, ‘cause they won’t do it for me, so fly I make Cornell West want me
Soon to recognize a political gift, 30 years from now I’ll be the president

Verse
I’m afraid of myself for writing a song like this
I need more attention from you
I wish you would just circle me out
If only you knew the changes I been going through
I’m outta my mind and its consumed, with all kinds of thoughts of you
Pretending I don’t love you but I’m catchin feelings for you!

Hook:
I love you, In every way
Possible
You seem to have it all
Could we be
Possible
Possible

Verse 2:
Boy I’m feelin you from the top of your head down to your toes
Is it possible that you could be feelin’ me too?
A lot of time was wasted double thinkin’, wonderin’ what you’d say or how you’d behave if the truth was known.
I don’t want to get dissed so
Impatiently, I wait for a sign from you to tell me this feelin’ is right
I never met a man like you so honorably framed.
Oh baby just to here you name-- is love possible in any way?

Hook:
I love you, In every way
Possible
Nobody calls my name like you
Could we be
Possible
My children need to have a father just like you
Could that be Possible
Possible

Bridge:
Oops was that a mistake I mean actually is it okay?
Can I say that I dream of raisin your babies and not scare you away?
My heart is racing for you just wanna smell the breath of you.
Oh baby just to lay with you dance with you, live with you so I can have god times with you.
Cause I love you!

Hook:
I love you, In every way
Possible
You seem to have it all
Could we be
Possible

Sinatra’s Song (A Very Good Year)

(It Was A Very Good Year-Ervin
Drake parody)

When I was 8 years old, it was a very good year.
It was a very good year for jelly sandals, and beads in my braids.
M.J. was the rage; the moon walk was so bold, when I was 8 years old

When I was 10 plus 3 it was a very good year.
It was a very good year for Cross Colored pants. Spike Lee had the Joints.
I filled out my tops—my first kissing scene when I was 13.

When I was 17 it was a very good year.
It was a very good year for Mary J. Blige and learning to drive.
No longer a child, beginning to dream when I was 17.

Well now I’m good and grown, and it’s a very good year.
Yes it’s a very good year—for health, wealth, and love, blessings from above,
the future looks bright-- Yes the future looks swell, platinum album sales
