Aloe Blacc Hey Brother

Hey there, brother, watch your little lady

She’s a little faster than you think

Hey there, brother, watch your little lady

She’ll be sneaking ’round every time you blink

Now I don’t know how she got my number

But she been calling all through the summer

Saying she really need to see the color

Now don’t that make you wonder

Hey there brother, hey there brother

Hey there brother, watch your little momma

She’s a little hand full, yes she is

Hey there brother, watch your little momma

She got herself a hand full, yes she did

Can’t you see you’re getting played you fool

She’s letting everybody take it as cool

All up in the backyard shooting pool

And I don’t mean to sound cruel

But hey there brother, hey there brother

Hey there brother, look what she’s doing to you

Hey there brother, she’s playing you for a fool

Hey there brother, look what she’s doing to you

Hey there brother

Hey there brother, what’s with your girlfriend

She ain’t being loyal, no she ain’t

Hey there brother, what’s with your girlfriend

You should hear the things that she’s been saying

Well the word on the street is that it won’t be long

Before she packs up and moves on

She’s just using you like a comb

Now don’t you think it’s wrong

Hey there brother, hey there brother

Oooh, hey there brother

Look what she’s doing to you

Hey there brother

She’s playing you for a fool

Hey there brother

Aloe Blacc Can’t Stay

What does it feel like to do everything you can

For the woman that you love just to be a better man

It feels something like a fat slap in the face

From the woman that you love when she getting on your case

About who you call and who you hanging with

About who when why where what and it

Get on your nerves ’cause you don’t need this mess

Get on your nerves ’cause you don’t need this stress

Be on your mind all the time like pay checks

Be on your mind all the time like safe sex

Pissing you off ’cause she know you’s a grown man

Pissing you off ’cause she don’t seem to understand

You need space but she taking up all the room

She sucking up all your space like a vacuum

Just do what I do tell her like this come here

You don’t gotta go home, but you can’t stay here

Oh, oh, when you go

I will not stop you

You ain’t got to go home

But you can’t stay here

In particular allow me to explain something

I was trying to be with this lady but she stayed fronting

Spending my money and asking me for this and that

But when I needed money she don’t wanna give back

To the cause I had to pause and reflect on it

-But I just let it slide though

Because it felt so good to have her in my ride though

She was the ring master I was just a sideshow

More like a clown but dig the way it went down

I found she was sleeping ’round when I went out of town

I didn’t call her for weeks, she hit me up fretting

I told her take your new freak and get to half stepping

She called her cousin told her cousin I was really buggin

She brought her cousin to my house look what the cat drug in

A little pip squeak weak like a wet twig

I told him come back when you get big then I told her

That’s the way it is and the way it has to be

It’s about time I let me look after me

It could never be ever after happily

If we stay together it will be a catastrophe

Aloe Blacc Long Time Coming

I was born by the river

In a little tent

Just like the river

I’ve been runnin ever since

It’s been a long time coming

But I Know change gonna come, oh yes it will.

It’s been too hard living

But I’m afraid to die

Cause I don’t know what’s up there

In the sky

It’s been a long time coming

But I Know change gonna come

I go the movies

And I go downtown

Somebody keep telling mee, don’t

Don’t hang around

Then I go to my brother

And I say brother help me please

But he rise up knocking me back on my knees

There’s been times that I thought I would not last for long

Now I think I may grow

To carrie on

Its been a long time coming, but I know a change gonna come, oh

Yes it will.
