Roll Me Over

Never thought in my right mind

Want nah spend your free time
With old lips made of wine

Don't need a body double
To take your place
Wakin up to your sweet face

Don't Want What You Got

Written By: Jean McClain


"Don't Want What You Got"

I don't want what you got
if your heart ain't in it
Stop searchin for somebody
always callin me baby
I'm always there at the end
They're never there for the finish
"I don't want what you got
If your heart ain't there

I've lived too many lives
Taken too many chances
Sleepin wit this one and that one
Not much romancin

I've gotta change all the pages
Just to start a brand new chapter
I'm kinda sick and i'm tired of
never findin what i want

BSec. No promises or demands
Was always the way, I kept
Things close at hand
But now I'm ready to change
With God's willin
I know i can change

You only have this one life
One day at a time
To take you thru your hard journey
Toward love's paradise

repeat BSec:

I don't want what you got
If your heart ain't in it
Stop searchin for somebody
Always callin me baby
I'm always there at the end
They're never there for the finish
"I don't want what you got
If your heart ain't in it

Back It Up Train

Written By: Jean McClain


BACK IT UP TRAIN
2xs
Back it up
Back it up train
Send my baby home to me
I've been waitin such a long time
In my arms is where he should be

He said he was goin
Just up the road
Said he had alot of things
To unload

But that was 40 days and nights
Still i'm alone
Someone should tell me
What's goin on

Chorus

My girlfriends tell me
Its another girl
But it was me, so plain to see
Who rocked his world

I'm not braggin
I know for a fact
Love is not the reason
He ain't comin back

Chorus

Is He:

DOA
Lyin In Wait
Hoodwinked
Or
Kidnapped
Or
Burned at the stake

I've got to know
Wrong or Right
Wonder if he's
Coming back to me tonight
