Beres Hammond No Goodbye

I can’t, no

Every time I think of saying goodbye

Everything inside me says it’s a lie

So I can’t

No I can’t

No I can’t

Yes

Yes, you’ve been with me right through the rough

And you’ve never said, “I’ve had enough”

So I can’t

No, I can’t

No, I can’t

Yeah honey…

I’d like to repay you for damages done

I know I won’t be able to repair it all ’cause I lost count

And with all the time you’ve been hurting

You’re still so fine and it’s blowing my mind

I know I should pack and walk away and leave you nothing to remind

But I can’t

Oh I can’t

No I can’t

No honey

No…

Just wish I was man enough to

Come out and say it to you

You know?

I’d like to repay you for damages done

I know I won’t be able to repair it all ’cause I lost count

And with all the time you’ve been hurting

You’re still so fine and it’s blowing my mind

I should pack my things and walk away and leave you nothing to remind

But I can’t

Oh I can’t

No I can’t

Every time I think of saying goodbye

Everything inside me says it’s a lie

So I can’t

No I can’t

No I can’t

Baby…

‘Cause, you’ve been with me right through the rough

And you’ve never said, “I’ve had enough”

So I can’t

No, I can’t

No, I can’t

Hey, hey…

I know I would never, how could I leave you baby

But you’re so fine with everything I do

No

Oh baby, ooh baby

I wish that we were just starting

Oh baby

Beres Hammond No Disturb Sign

[Spoken:] Mmm, I think I’m gonna have to call

In sick

Yeah… hey Mr. Supervisor, I think I’m gonna

Have to call in sick na na na na…

Can’t leave my woman like this…

Oooh…

If there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s leaving you

So early in the morning.

This nine to five I have is surley getting to me

For the third time I think I’m gonna have to call in sick

If I leave you now I’ll be loosing my mind, my mind.

[Chorus:]

Hope we never get tired, and I never

Have to go to work, no one knocking on the door

Disrespecting the no disturb sign.

No baby crying, no horn blowing

Just the whisper of our voices all day long

Na na na na baby

A man who don’t sweet treat his woman

Surley wasting a lot of time,

She might not say it but she needs

Tenderness in her life.

When I look in your eyes baby,

I see clear as a warning sign,

I gotta take some more time off

And give you extra love na na na na

Hope you like it.

[Chorus]

Oooh won’t you come a little closer…

That’s it my orenge juice,

Reach over and hold me baby, just like that

Just like that, we’re gonna be making love, all

Through the day time (hope you like it baby)

[Chorus]

Whispering sweet, sweet prayers of love…

[Chorus x2]

Beres Hammond Love Within The Music

Teach the children love within the music,

A little hope, so they’ll grow strong,

Teach them the right, cause they know wrong.

Little children love to sing to our music,

So won’t you sing them songs of life,

Instead of building wars and strife.

Love the youth,

Teach them truth,

Make them understand,

They are weak and they seek,

Loving guiding hands.

For so long you’ve been playing songs,

All along you’ve been playing wrongs.

Little babes will have twisted minds,

And the father will refuse to shine,

He won’t shine untill you…

… Teach the children love within the music,

A little hope, so they’ll grow strong,

Teach them the right, cause they know wrong.

Little children love to sing with our music,

So won’t you sing them songs of life,

Instead of building war and strife.

Love the youth,

Teach them truth,

Make them understand,

They are weak and they seek,

Loving guiding hands.

All so long you’ve been playing song,

All along you’ve been playing wrong.

Little babe will have twisted mind,

And the father will refuse to shine,

He won’t shine untill you…

… Teach the children love within your music,

A little hope, so they’ll grow strong,

Teach them the right, cause they know wrong.

Hey little children love to sing to our music,

So won’t you sing them songs of life,

Instead of building war and strife.

Why won’t you sing them songs of life,

Sing them songs of love.

Beres Hammond I Won’t Surrender

Just because you know,

I care so much about you,

You think it gives the right to do,

Just about whatever you want to.

You thought I’d sit around,

Beres Hammond Can’t Stop A Man

[Intro:]

Just wait a minute, wait a minute

Wait a minute before you say another word

Now tell me…

[Hook:]

What can you do to stop a man from trying?

I said I wanna know now

Nothing you can do to stop a man from trying

I wanna know yes I wanna know now

What can you do to stop a man from trying?

I wanna know said I wanna know now

Nothing you can do to stop a man from trying

[Verse 1:]

Oh not with that big broad smile and the sexy dress you wear

It’s totally impossible for a man with eyes not to stare

There is no reason to be so uptight

Now when you got everything alright

You should know by now you’re every man’s fantasy

[Hook]

[Verse 2:]

Hey girl check out your style, brothers going wild

It’s hard to keep control when your right there on that throne

So little don’t cramp my style

Wave your hands give me a smile

Cause after all I’m one of your fans

[Hook]

[Verse 1]

[Hook]

Beres Hammond One Dance

I’d like to tell you a story about,

What one dance can do,

One dance can do,

One dance can do.

A listen up.

After one dance on the floor,

She came back, wanting for more, for more.

Now I don’t know what it is that I’ve got,

What she whispered it was so nice, so nice.

But her man is sitting across the way,

And he could hear the things I say.

Now he watches from the corner of his eyes,

So a move like this would be so unwise.

Ooh ooh, he’s standing ina my way,

Standing in my way hey.

You could see,

She was more than ready,

To make the move with me anytime.

Not even thinking of the consequences, oh no no,

So I had to think quickly.

‘Cause her man his face was looking oh so mean,

As if anytime, he could create a scene.

So gently I pushed her away,

Ooh ooh, he wants to spoil the play.

He’s standing in my way, hey,

He’s standing in my way.

Now I understand how he feels,

But I wish he’d give me a little room,

I know he’s got himself a raw deal,

But I’d like to leave with this lady soon.

I didn’t mean, to be so unkind,

But I had more than two but one was looking fine.

Big spender he was, had to have his own way,

Thought he’d leave, but he stayed,

Still standing in my way,

Standing in my way.

Standing in my way hey,

Standing in my way.

That’s what one dance can do,

One dance can do…

Beres Hammond Another Day In The System

Another day in the system, burning,

People wanna change,

And the people wanna change.

Watching all my little brothers struggling,

Working so hard.

Another day in the system, slaving,

People want a change,

And people want a change.

We’re building up, tearing down,

Still nowhere going.

Now tell me,

Isn’t it clear to see,

That the leaders just don’t care,

If we should live or we should die.

Oh, so long as they get their share.

Now tell me what are we going to do,

People should arrange up a coup,

And must be willing to sacrifice.

‘Cause if we think too high the price,

It’s gonna be another day in the system, burning,

The people wanna change,

And the people wanna change.

Watching all my little brothers struggling,

Working so hard.

Another day in the system, slaving,

People want a change,

And people want a change.

We’re building up, tearing down,

Still nowhere going.

They tell you don’t forget to call me sir,

As we are not friends of the same class.

And keep a smile upon your face,

Be remembered I’m the boss.

They want us to think we’ve got no pride,

We’re living just to stay alive.

But we’re not giving up on life.

Until we win the grand first prize.

It’s gonna be another day in the system,

Burning, burning, burning.

The people wanna change,

And the people wanna change.

Watching all my little brothers struggling,

Working so hard.

Another day in the system, slaving,

People want a change,

And people want a change.

Building up, tearing down,

Still nowhere going.

They’ll wanna kill you for the truth,

But for me it’s been much too long.

And I won’t take it anymore.

The old system is so wrong.

Now tell me what are we gonna do,

People should arrange up a coup,

And must be willing to sacrifice,

‘Cause if we think too high the price,

It’s gonna be another day in the system,

Burning, burning.

The people wanna change,

And the people wanna change.

Watching all my little brothers struggling,

Working so hard.

Gonna be another day in the system, slaving,

People want a change,

And people want a change.

Building up, tearing down,

Still nowhere going…

Beres Hammond Bring It On

As I stand here today thinking ’bout you

My mind goes reminiscing ’bout good times

Yes, God knows I wanna say sorry

For the sadness on your face that you can’t seem to erase

Feel guilty, I wanna apologize

Got to turn my head away, I can’t look in your eyes

How do I do this? Oh, everyday I pray

It’s gonna take everything in me to say

Bring it on once again

All the love that you’ve been missing and what I should be given

Bring it on once again

I swear by everything in me I’ll be better

And after tonight if I fail to be the man I’m supposed to be

Then I’ll pack my bag, get off the door

And in a moment you’ll see me no more

Abracadabra and Beres is gone

I won’t have a problem, I promise no fight

Whatever you do you’ll be perfectly right

But if there exist one little chance under the sun

Bring it on once again

All the love that you’ve been missing and what I should be given

Bring it on once again

I swear by everything in me I’ll be better

Even what I’m up against is very clear to see

That I have no defense, no

All I’m saying is just in case you might have

A change of heart and still need me

Bring it on once again

All the love that you’ve been missing and what I should be given

Bring it on once again

I swear by everything in me I’ll be better

As I stand here today thinking ’bout you

My mind goes reminiscing ’bout good times

God knows I wanna say sorry

For that sadness on your face that you can’t seem to erase

Feel guilty, I wanna apologize

I’ve got to turn my head away, I can’t look in your eyes

How do I do this? Oh, how I pray

It’s gonna take everything in me to say

Bring it on once again

All the love that you’ve been missing and what I should be given

Bring it on once again

I swear by everything in me I’ll be better
