Lyrics

Fool

Written By: M. ten Hove, Rose

Chorus:
You’re a fool and you think you’re so clever
But I’m sick and tired of the lies
Try to hide what’s untrue yeah whatever
You’re so fake and you don’t seem to mind

Such a fool and you think you’re so clever
But your words sound like Bla Bla Bla Bla
Did you think this would go on forever?
You’re a fool I can see through your stupid disguise

Verse 1:
When I met you it felt so right
In the beginning we’d talk all night
Looked like nothing could go wrong
But this month it’s a different song

I try and break down your walls
You act like you don’t give a damn at all

Who was that on the telephone?
I heard you say, ‘no I’m not alone’
Than you leave with a silly lie
Well this time it’s the last goodbye

I try and break down your walls
You act like you don’t give a damn at all

Verse 2:
Always act like you’re the boss
Never could win and now your lost
Crawling back won’t help a thing
So take back that diamond ring, see…

I tried to break down your walls
You act like you don’t give a damn at all

Bridge:
We’re falling (and) falling deep again
The same old story, don’t care for that end
Wrong or right, I’m packing my bags tonight
And you’re not worth a tear, no you won’t see my cry

Hoochie Coochie Lady

Written By: N. Pieck

She’s a Dixie girl coming from the South.
Always searching for some dressed in shorts & thongs.
She does what she wants nothing but fun……

She’s a Southern belle cursed by some kinda spell.
She’ll wrap you around her finger turn your heart into stone.
Like a dog without a bone that won’t leave you alone.

She’s a Hoochie Coochie lady
(Hoochie Coochie lady)
Hoochie Coochie lady …uh wah hu…

She’s got a shameless soul on the streets of gold.
She’s the talk of the town and a thorn in the eye.
Well she looks like an angel but she’s nothing but evil.

She’s a Hoochie Coochie lady
(Hoochie Coochie lady)
Hoochie Coochie lady …uh wah hu…

(rap)

This goes out to all my ill nanas
Me hermana’s
Mama’s with the bandanas
Club chicks
All around the world
Anonyms
Playing that game
Cut off shorts, high heals,
no shame.
Wildin’ out.
She looks like a Hollywood star.
Taste like a sweet candy bar.
Seductive tactics.
Straight up pimping.
She’s so attractive.
Ain’t no man can resist her
Keep ya game up,
And that’s what’s up sister!

She’s a Hoochie Coochie lady
(Hoochie Coochie lady)
Hoochie Coochie lady …uh wah hu…
