Lyrics

Hands Together

Written By: Gray/Hamlin

©2003 Will Gray & Jason Hamlin
Verse 1
I’m off the wall wit’ mine when it comes to the rhyme
I make the beat transform like it’s Optimus Prime
I’m makin’ it funky like crusty toes all up in ya face
Heads bobbin’ since the last time we rocked the place
Now everybody put yo hands together
Grab a partner hit the flo’ and dance forever
The party starts now and it ends at never –
So come on party people – put yo hands together

Chorus:
Come on –
Everybody put yo hands together
Grab a partner hit the flo’ and dance forever –
The party starts now and it ends at never
So come on – come on (2X’s)

Verse 2
Verse Two, cause you just can’t stop the groove –
You move – back and forth like real smooth
Cause everybody’s singin’ and laughin’
Hands are clappin’ the fingers are snappin’
The feet are stompin’ the party’s jumpin’ like
WHAT?!!?!!

Bridge:
We came to breakdown and shake down
And take down to the under
Ground with this new found and profound funky fresh sound (2X’s)
Verse 3
Verse Three – yeah but the party ain’t over because the people still dancin’ they just dance a little slower –
Like nod yo’ head from side to side and shake yo’ hips from left to right and –
Just for tonight man –
Nobody fight man –
You could chill man –
Use the left and right brain –
Cause it ain’t worth it yo’
Not out here on the flo’
But if you want a good time I could give you mo’

Breaking The Trend

Written By: Hamlin/Lee

Verse 1:
There's no way around it
The answers gonna be the same
Does anybody leaves the house
Without a plan to party down

Pre-chorus:
Who wants to have a good time tonight
Who wants to have a good time
Does anybody want a good time tonight
Does anybody want a good time

Chorus:
I'm looking for,
More than just a good time baby
I'm looking for
More than just a friend tonight
Everyone here agrees
that they want a good time
But I'm just breaking the trend

Verse 2:
I don't wanna be dramatic
And I don't wanna bring u down
But I need more than a party
I don't just wanna be a clown

Pre-chorus:
Who wants to have a good time tonight
Who wants to have a good time
Does anybody want a good time tonight
Does anybody want a good time

Chorus:
I'm looking for,
More than just a good time baby
I'm looking for
More than just a friend tonight
Everyone here agrees
that they want a good time
But I'm just breaking the trend

Bridge:
Believe me if u want
Even if u don't
I'm gonna break the trend
Believe me if u want
Even if you don't
I'm gonna break the trend

Chorus:
I'm looking for,
More than just a good time baby
I'm looking for
More than just a friend tonight
Everyone here agrees
that they want a good time
But I'm just breaking the trend

Renegade

Renegade

Verse 1
I'm a renegade
I'm disaster
I'm the kind of guy you've been after
I'm a no saint, no priest or no pastor
But I believe in One master
And u can't give me a cold shoulder
I'm like ice, I can't get much colder
I'm a paradox
I'm a rebel
I'm the one fighting with the devil

Chorus
You say you looking for me
But where did you look
I've been right where I said
I really didn't go anywhere
I'm ready for a fight
Go ahead, take your best shot
Don't you ever forget
With me, what you see you get

V2
I'm a wildcat
I'm a dragon
I'm loud explosive like a hand gun
I'm a habit to break,
I'm a bad one
But I'm filled with deep compassion
And u can't give me a cold shoulder
I'm like ice I can't get much colder
I'm a timebomb
I'm a handful
I'm the type that can't really stand still

Chorus
You say you looking for me
But where did you look
I've been right where I said
I really didn't go anywhere
I'm ready for a fight
Go ahead, take your best shot
Don't you ever forget
With me, what you see you get

Breakdown

Chorus
You say you looking for me
But where did you look
I've been right where I said
I really didn't go anywhere
I'm ready for a fight
Go ahead, take your best shot
Don't you ever forget
With me, what you see you get

Love Someone

Written By: Hamlin/Lee

Love Someone

V1
Feeling kinda funny , yet I'm feelin alright
Probably gonna be some trouble tonight
Choices make me dizzy and I've never been good,at trying to settle down even though I think I should,

Pre-chorus
Be the best behaved and show the most restraint,
But there's some that really can and there's some that really can't

Chorus
If u gonna love someone
Make sure they're the only one
If u gonna love someone
Make sure they're the only one.
Give em all ur, love em everyday

V2
An older cat came and stood next to me
Claimed he was a fan, and spoke softly
He'd been around the world or at least that's what he said
He only had a lil time, before he was dead
Spoke kinda soft, didn't know what to do
Shook his finger at me and he told me what I knew
But now that I'm older I find it to be true
"Son u better listen what I'm saying to you"

Chorus
If u gonna love someone
Make sure they're the only one
If u gonna love someone
Make sure they're the only one.
Give em all ur, love em everyday

Bridge
Say, Love someone (echo)

Chorus
If u gonna love someone
Make sure they're the only one
If u gonna love someone
Make sure they're the only one.
Give em all ur, love em everyday
