Lyrics

Royal Flush

Written By: Manny Be

You can place your bet on me, please don’t ever count me out
You can put your faith in me,
I will never let you down
You can always call on me, nevermind what it’s about

‘Cause it gets hard, caught off-guard, and you feel so helpless
But even when it’s bad,
it’s not that bad
Things could be much worse

Shine on love, you
you’re the only thing I see
Shine on love, you
you’re the only thing I need

You can live in harmony, you know that I’ve got your back
You can choose to disagree, never will I feel attacked
We’ll get there if we believe, even though we get side-tracked

‘Cause it gets hard, caught off-guard, and you feel so helpless
But even when it’s bad,
it’s not that bad
Things could be much worse

Shine on love, you
you’re the only thing I see
Shine on love, you
you’re the only one I need

Super Pop

Sugar pie and honey, sugar fly my bunny
Cut me loose and free me
Let me taste your pie, let me taste your pie, let me taste your pie

Feed me well and heal me, treat me right I’ll do you
Sing and dance for pleasure
Drink and feast the night away, drink and feast the night away
Drink and feast the night away

Girl, you’re so fine, you are so fine
I lust you so, you flaming pie
You flaming pie, I’m in need of you

Girl, you’re so fine, sugar pie and honey
You are so fine, sugar fly my bunny
I lust you so, I lust you so

Sugar pie and honey

You've Got The Magick

Written By: Manny Be

There's no reason for us to be here, our presence is like a crime
Up, down, baby, we don't know ourselves
We're searching but we won't find
Peace of mind

There's no reason with you my dear
You're so hot, but turn so cold
Come on, baby, you're bringing me down
I'm so high, you are so low, it's getting old
Set me free!!!

Seize all the reasons you need, GO!
Please all the needs that you feel, GO!
These are the keys to a new love
These are the keys

Be my favorite, say you'll stay
Be my baby, say you'll stay
Up, down, turn around, you're my only one
You've got the magic, yeah, you've got the magic
Up, down, turn around, you're my only one
You've got the magic, life is less tragic,
'Cause you've got the magic.

There's no secret with you, my dear
Your whisper is like a roar
Somehow, someday, you'll get yours
It's all right, you'll be just fine, give it time
Set me free!!!

Secretive Air

Written By: Manny Be

This is my cure-for-all, it’s my decision
This ain’t my protocol, out on a mission
Does it breathe? I hope it does.
Does it feed? I hope it does.
Does it see inside your soul?
Does it know? Does it know?

Secrets are there, Secretive Air
Secrets are there, Secretive Air

This is a cover-up, call it religion
This is a photo-op, our misdirection
Does it sting? I hope it does.
Does it sing? I hope it does.
Does it ring a bell or two?
Does it ring? Does it ring?

Secrets are there, Secretive Air
Secrets are there, Secretive Air

Potion 4 Power

Written By: Robert Robbieson

Rise and shine you sleepy heads
Awake your conscience its been dead
Think outside the box that's been presented to you
Everybody's in the game
Quick to shoot and point the blame
Never realizing that we've been misconstrued

Yes, they wanted the world baby
They succeeded thru and thru
Yes, they seeded the world baby
We're a product of their ancient brew

Live your life without a thought
You think you're free but you've been bought
Everything's been manifested for your pleasure
Eyes closed wide, ears shut closed
Searching for that constant pose
Nothing's what it seems its time for drastic measures

Fooled you....HA!! HA!!
Fooled you....HA!! HA!!
Screwed you....HA!! HA!!
Screwed you....HA!! HA!!
