A Tribe Called Quest – Ego (We Got It From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service Album)

[Chorus: Q-Tip]
Ego, ego skippin’, trippin’ in my mind
Ego, ego skippin’, trippin’ in my mind
Ego, ego trippin’, trippin’, trippin’, trippin’, trippin’
Ego, ego
I got one, you got one, and now we equal
Sometimes it makes you trip out on your people
Sometimes it has connotations of evil
Sometimes niggas call on it when they need to
It’s called the ego

[Verse 1: Q-Tip]
Ay, it’s hard to really make the subject positively stated
Some may hate it and some may overrate it
It’s a top story and you rarely see a trend
So all you psychoanalysts, pull out your pad and pen
It’s called the ego
Come up with an idea, and no one seems to get it
Then every time you mention it
They stare like you’re two-headed
But one day, in your cubicle, your idea really comes to view
Your boss is walking by, he sees it too and he takes it from you
She put you on the aces of all the stripper places
And has the kinda clientele where niggas trick off very well
You beg her and you plead her and you tuck away your ego
She knows you need the chicken
And you know that she’s your people
They call you fat and lazy, your commentary crazy
They photoshop your face on a box of McCormick gravy
And now that inner voice, that ego, making you get wavy
Change your diet, hit the gym
And say, "What were you saying to me?"
The ego makes you do it, it makes you face the music
Or run away from life so fast that you’ll outsprint Carl Lewis
It has you think your deceptive ways of being are the truest
Had the prettiest brown eyes but you change them shits to the bluest
It’s the ego

[Bridge: Q-Tip]
Ooo, Jack White
Ooo, Jack White

[Verse 2: Q-Tip]
A celebrated genius, my dick game is the meanest
I’ll take the girl that’s augmented, new me is invented
I’ll take the biggest house in Calabassas
Anyone for Michael Phelps swimming classes?
You need it when you’re balling, equally when you’re falling
Or when those kids in school on your locker
They get to scrawling
Epithets that’s racist is stupid and mean in nature
Something that can make you feel stronger when people hate ya
Ego make you violent or govern like a tyrant
Or switch a dictionary’s word from vibrant to vivrant
Fool the thirsty people, selling tap water in bottles
Fooled a girl with NYU scholarship and now she models
Ego has no ending, has people pretending
Religious zealots get jealous ’cause guys want their defending
This is the last Tribe and our ego hopes that you felt us
And closing for our ego, we know only God can help us

[Outro]
Ego, ego skippin’, trippin’ in my mind
Ego, ego skippin’, trippin’ in my mind
Ego, ego trippin’, trippin’, trippin’, trippin’, trippin’
Ego, ego skippin’, trippin’ in my mind
Ego, ego skippin’, trippin’ in my mind
Ego, ego trippin’, trippin’, trippin’, trippin’, trippin’
Ego, ego skippin’, trippin’ in my mind
Ego, ego skippin’, trippin’ in my mind

A Tribe Called Quest – Ego

[Chorus: Q-Tip]
Ego, ego
Skip it, trippin in my mind
Ego, ego
Skip it, trippin in my mind
Ego, ego
Trippy, trippy, trippy, trippy, trippy
Ego

Kings Of Leon – Over

[Verse 1]
I see the grass beneath me
I smell the wind and sky
And think to myself
“Don’t pass me by”
You dance in strange conditions with strangers of the night
I see you’re crazy and so am I
You bled out red and blue
The boys of NYU, they saw you coming from miles away
Nothing is quite as homey
We dive each sunny day
I see you Kenny, you castaway

[Chorus]
Oh, don’t say it’s over
Don’t say it’s over anymore
Oh, don’t say it’s over
Don’t say it’s over anymore
[Verse 2]
Bright lights, that make the city
Quaaludes on Christmas Eve
And all the good times, we’ve ever seen
The roles we play together
The slaps across my face
I face the music
You write the scene

[Chorus]
Oh, don’t say it’s over
Don’t say it’s over anymore
Oh, don’t say it’s over
Don’t say it’s over anymore

[Bridge]
My angel hovers over
The light comes crashing in
I know it’s how this here story ends
I’ll hang around forever
Until you cut me down
All pressed and ready to face the crowd

[Chorus]
Oh, don’t say it’s over
Don’t say it’s over anymore
Oh, don’t say it’s over
Don’t say it’s over anymore

Kings Of Leon – Over lyrics

[Verse 1]
I see the grass beneath me
I smell the winter sky
And think to myself
Don’t pass me by
You dance in strange conditions with strangers of the night
I see you’re crazy and so am I

You bled out red and blue
The boys of NYU, they saw you coming from miles away
Nothing is quite as homey, we dive in sunny days
I see you Kenny, you castaway
[Chorus]
Oh, don’t say it’s over
Don’t say is over, anymore
Oh, don’t say it’s over
Don’t say it’s over, anymore

[Verse 1]
Bright lights, that made the city
[?] on christmas eve and all the good times, we’ve ever seen
The roles we played together
The slaps across my face
My face brings new reason you write the scene

[Chorus]
Oh, don’t say it’s over
Don’t say is over anymore
Oh, don’t say it’s over
Don’t say it’s over anymore

[Bridge]
My angel hovers over
The light comes crashing in
I know it’s how this here story ends
I’ll hang around forever, until you cut me down
I’m crossed and ready to face the crowd

[Chorus]
Oh, don’t say it’s over
Don’t say is over anymore
Oh, don’t say it’s over
Don’t say it’s over anymore

Emily Kinney – Molly lyrics

[Verse 1]
Oh, oh, I know about Molly ’cause she told my friend
That she was hooking up with you on the weekend
Guess those stories that you told me turned out not to be true
You say you’re done with Molly, well, I’m done with you

[Chorus]
Oh, I know about Molly
She likes to sing and get high
She likes to kiss my boyfriend
When he comes walking by
Woah-oh, I know about Molly
So just confess it out loud
You’re so guilt-stricken, crying one the corner
Do you feel better now?

[Verse 2]
Oh, you were working with Molly when you said she’s just a buddy
Never thought you were the type to fuck an understudy
Molly’s so naive, she don’t know wrong from right
And when your girlfriend’s out of town she’s at your place all night
Oh, oh, oh, NYU, LaGuardia, to some Broadway bound
But she keeps taking shitty gigs that I turned down
I hope you love her face, I hope you dig her voice
You say you’re done with Molly, well, I’ve made another choice

[Chorus]
Oh, I know about Molly
She likes to sing and get high
She likes to kiss my boyfriend
When he comes walking by
Woah-oh, I know about Molly
So just confess it out loud
You’re so guilt-stricken, crying on the corner
Do you feel better now?

[Verse 3]
Oh, Molly, you can have him, you’re much cooler than me
I never liked staying out, smoking weed ’til three
So take my boots in his closet like you took my man
It’s clear you don’t mind wearing things second hand
And I’m not looking for a winner, or a loser, or a forfeit
But my heart’s in little pieces so I hope that it was worth it
Hope you’re happy together ’cause I’m doing alright
But you both should stay away from the Lower East Side

[Chorus]
‘Cause I know about Molly
She likes to sing and get high
She like to kiss my boyfriend
When he comes walking by
Woah-oh, I know about Molly
So just confess it out loud
You’re so guilt-stricken, crying on the corner
Do you feel better now?

Do you feel better now?
I hope you feel better now
