Citizen Cope - Fame

Citizen Cope - Fame

Got the law man
The con man
The liquor store man
Got the man at the premiere to "Spider-Man"
Got the old man calling on the young man
Got the soul man
Trying to keep a hold man
I seen the stars lookin in her eyes
So many times i tried
Seen a man who caught the rainbow's end
He claimed
That the pot of gold resided within

For a name in the U.S.A.
For a little bit of fame today
For a name in the world today
You want to fly high
You want to fly high
You want to fly
You want to fly
You want to fly high

For a name in the world today
For a little bit of fame today
For a name in the U.S.A.
You want to fly high
You want to fly high
You want to fly
You want to fly
You want to fly high

Got the this is your land man
This is my land man
Got the blood on the tracks man
Got the guilty man
Got the innocent man
Got the buffalo soldier
The dreadlock Rastaman
Seen the stars looking in her eyes
So many times I've tried
Talked to a man who caught the
rainbow's end he found
That the pot of gold resided within

For a name in the world today
For a little bit of fame today
For a name in the U.S.A.
You want to fly high
You want to fly high
You want to fly
You want to fly

For a name in the U.S.A.
For a little bit of fame today
For a name in the U.S.A.
You want to fly high
You want to fly high
You want to fly
You want to fly
You want to fly high

 

Citizen Cope - Bullet and a Target

Citizen Cope - Bullet and a Target

Say Mrs. Dali Lamas
Another sister's shootin' heroin tomorrow
'S amputees in Freetown
Sierra Leone's
The church wasn't honest
The state put the youth in a harness
Creatin' hostility among us
The teacher said no college
Still the kid's gotta get a check with a couple commas
People wanna bomb us
More people gotta scatter and run from us
You can blame it on Zeus and Apollo and Adonis

But what you've done here
Is put yourself between a bullet and a target
And it won't be long before
You're pulling yourself away

What you've done here
Is put yourself between a bullet and a target
And it won't be long before
You're pulling yourself away

I've been knowin' her for years
I've been seeing her for years
She got dark, dark wavy hair
With a voice that she just don't care
She got a skirt with a halter top
She's got a dad who never gave a fuck
She drink a beer with a malted shot
She got knocked up in a pickup truck
But she got engaged when she was nineteen
To this dude who was acting insane
Had a .45 that he always cleaned
She said one day one day one too many days
Now she ducked and she ran away
Never to be heard from, never to be seen
I check the cover of a magazine
I'm just wondering how, just wondering how

But what you've done here
Is put yourself between a bullet and a target
And it won't be long before
You're pulling yourself away

But what you've done here
Is put yourself between a bullet and a target
And it won't be long before
You're pulling yourself away

What you've done here
Is put yourself between a bullet and a target
And it won't be long before
You're pulling yourself away

What you've done here
Is put yourself between a bullet and a target
And it won't be long before
You're pulling yourself away

A bullet and a target
A bullet and a target
A bullet and a target
A bullet and a target

 

 

Citizen Cope - Mandy

Citizen Cope - Mandy

Hey ya hey hey hey ya hey hey…..

She said everything you've learned yeah you've been told 
How can I get you to forget for awhile
She's at my door won't leave me alone
And she says that she'll make my pain go by

But I know about Mandy cause Mandy you never forget
If she was a blond I'd tell her go home
But Mandy's a brunette 

And she got noting left to wear
She'll get your heart forget your heart

And she got nothing left to wear
She'll get your heart forget your heart

Hey ya hey hey hey ya hey hey…..

She said everything you've earned yeah you've rolled
I'll double it up if you give me a try
She's at my door won't leave me alone
And she said that she'll make my pain fly by
Twine the slot machine of the century part Vietnamese and Hindi
She'll set you free like the enemy retreat 
In the back of a black Cadillac limozine 

Well she's got nothing left to wear
She'll get your heart forget your heart 
she'll get your heart again 
And she's got nothing left to wear
She'll get your heart forget your heart

Hey ya hey hey hey ya hey hey…..

Well she's got nothing left to wear
She'll get your heart forget your heart she'll get your heart again 
And she's got nothing left to wear

She'll get your heart forget your heart she'll get your heart again

Citizen Cope - Sideways

Citizen Cope - Sideways

You know it ain't easy 
For these thoughts here to leave me
There's no words to describe it
In French or in English
Well, diamonds they fade
And flowers they bloom
And I'm telling you

These feelings won't go away
They've been knockin' me sideways
They've been knockin' me out lately

Whenever you come around me

These feelings won't go away 
They've been knockin' me sideways
I keep thinking in a moment that
Time will take them away

But these feelings won't go away
