Cee Lo Green The Christmas Song

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire

Jack Frost nipping at your nose

Yuletide carols being sung by a choir

And folks dressed up like Eskimos

Everybody knows

A turkey and some mistletoe

Help to make the season bright

Tiny tots with their eyes all a-glow

Will find it hard to sleep tonight

They know that Santa’s on his way

He’s loaded lots of toys

And goodies on his sleigh

And every mother’s child is goin’ to spy

To see if reindeer really know

How to fly

And so I’m offering this simple phrase

To kids from one to ninety two

Although it’s been said

Many times many ways

Merry Christmas to you

And so I’m offering this simple phrase

To kids from one to ninety two

Although it’s been said

Many times many ways

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

To you

Cee Lo Green Music To My Soul

Where I come from

I’ve seen things that you wouldn’t believe

But once your heart is there, you can never leave

I wrote this here for everyone to see

It was calling me, kept calling me

Even in darkness

Me and my fam from the dungeon found that light

And even in darkness

Despite what was wrong, everything’s gonna be alright

Said whoa, when it gets real cold

We got fire and that’s music to my soul

Said whoa, when the lights get low

We burn brighter and that’s music to my soul

Even in darkness

Well look at me now, I’m everything that I wanted to be

But once your heart is there, you can never leave

A star in the sky for everyone to see

You can follow me, follow me

Even in darkness

Me and my fam from the dungeon found that light

And even in darkness

Despite what was wrong, everything turned out alright

Said whoa, when it gets real cold

We got fire and that’s music to my soul

Said whoa, when the lights get low

We burn brighter and that’s music to my soul

Well we got Jo and Mo and Gipp and ‘Lo

And yes Big Rube, and Backbone, Organ No is Pat, Rico and Ray

And we’ve got the Witchdoctor and yes Cool Breeze

And all the young homies from the dungeon east

I can’t forget my brothers, Big and Dre

Even in darkness

Me and my fam from the dungeon found that light

And even in darkness

Despite what was wrong, everything turned out alright

Said whoa, when it gets real cold

We got fire and that’s music to my soul

Said whoa, when the lights get low

We burn brighter and that’s music to my soul

Said whoa, when it gets real cold

We got fire and that’s music to my soul

Said whoa, when the lights get low

We burn brighter and that’s music to my soul

Said whoa

And sight to the blind

I ain’t gone lie

My mother is nature

This is why

And my father is God

We got a house in the sky

Clap yo hand in the air like this

Boogie down and stomp just twist

Wave your hands high in the air

Boogie down like you just don’t care

After I’m done you will agree

Even a blind man can see

That I’m a bad muthafucker

Cee Lo Green Baby, It’s Cold Outside

I really can’t stay – Baby, it’s cold outside

I’ve got to go away – Baby, it’s cold out there

This evening has been – Been hoping that you’d drop in

So very nice – I’ll hold your hands, they’re just like ice

My mother will start to worry – Beautiful, what’s your hurry?

And father will be pacing the floor – Listen to that fireplace roar

So really I’d better scurry – Beautiful, please don’t hurry

Well maybe just a half a drink more – Put some records on while I pour

The neighbors might think – Baby, it’s bad out there

Say, what’s in this drink? – No cabs to be had out there

I wish I knew how – Your eyes are like starlight

To break the spell – I’ll take your hat, your hair looks swell

I ought to say no, no, no, sir – Mind if I move in closer?

At least I’m gonna say that I tried – What’s the sense in hurting my pride?

I really can’t stay – Baby don’t hold out

Oh, baby it’s cold outside

I simply must go – Baby, it’s cold outside

The answer is no – I said it’s cold out there

This welcome has been – How lucky that you dropped in

So nice and warm – Look out the window at that storm

My sister will be suspicious – Gosh, your lips look delicious

My brother will be there at the door – Waves upon a tropical storm

My maiden aunt’s mind is vicious – Oh, your lips are delicious

Maybe just a cigarette more – Never such a blizzard before

I’ve got to go home – Baby, you’ll freeze alive

Say, lend me your coat – I mean it’s up to your knees out there

You’ve really been grand – I’m thrilled when you touch my hand

But don’t you see – How can you do this thing to me?

There’s bound to be talk tomorrow – Think of my life long sorrow

At least there will be plenty implied – If you caught pneumonia and died

I really can’t stay – Get over that hold out

Ohhh, baby it’s cold outside

[Cee-Lo skats and harmonizes to fade out]

Cee Lo Green Robin Williams

Oh what a night, oh what a night, tears in my eyes, staring up at the sky in disbelief

“I’ve got a voice in my head, voice in my head”; that’s what it said, all we really need is some comic relief

But I’m afraid of not being able to laugh anymore (Oh)

What’s life going to become once we don’t have anymore heroes?

We don’t know what the next man’s going through, wish I could say it in a plainer way

I said we don’t know, life reminds me of Robin Williams; we’ve got to laugh the pain away

We don’t know what the next man’s going through, wish I could say it in a plainer way

I said we don’t know, life reminds me of Robin Williams; we’ve got to laugh the pain away

Laugh the pain away

John Belushi knew you and me better than we knew ourselves and we all listen to Richard Pryor (Ya)

I think don’t make Philip Seymour Hoffman often, now he’s one of the things we lost in the fire (Lord, yes)

Now I’m afraid of not being able to laugh anymore (Oh)

What’s life going to become once we don’t have anymore heroes?

We don’t know what the next man’s going through, wish I could say it in a plainer way

I said we don’t know, life reminds me of Robin Williams; we’ve got to laugh the pain away

We don’t know what the next man’s going through, wish I could say it in a plainer way

I said we don’t know, life reminds me of Robin Williams; we’ve got to laugh the pain away

(Oh) Chris Farley can you hear me?

(Ah) Bernie can you hear me?

We don’t know what the next man’s going through, I said we don’t know, life reminds me of Robin Williams

We don’t know what the next man’s going through, wish I could say it in a plainer way

I said we don’t know, life reminds me of Robin Williams; we’ve got to laugh the pain away

Phil Hartman can you hear me? (Oh, yes)

Robin can you hear me?

Cee Lo Green Sign Of The Times

[Hook:]

I wonder, could it be you and I are a sign of the times?

Why can’t we open our eyes to the sign of the times?

[Verse 1:]

When I feel like I’m all out of love, and my time is up

It scares me, judge us fairly

If only music could make us understand

I swear sometimes I hear a ghost in the radio

I went from station to station searchin’ for somewhere safe to go

I’m not the only one that’s seen it

So there’s no question, I believe it

I’m not crazy

Cause I can’t move ’til it makes me

Please try to save as many as you can

[Hook:]

Could it be you and I are a sign of the times?

Why can’t we open our eyes to the sign of the times?

[Bridge:]

Well it’s something you can’t deny, go ‘head and ask me why

For the meaning, and if you think you’re dreaming

Oh I have got the perfect song for you

[Verse 2:]

If I time it just right, I won’t have to say it again

Will my 2 cents be enough for you to play it again?

I put some weight on it

Repetition can change a human condition

Oh you need to listen, if it’s the last thing that you do

[Hook:]

Could it be you and I are a sign of the times?

Why can’t we open our eyes to the sign of the times?

[Bridge:]

Well it’s something you can’t deny, go ‘head and ask me why

For the meaning, and if you think you’re dreaming

Oh I have got the perfect song for you

[Hook x2:]

Could it be you and I are a sign of the times?

Why can’t we open our eyes to the sign of the times?

Cee Lo Green I Am Selling Soul

I am the music… (I am…)

I’ve yet to define myself as just, one thing. (I am…)

Let’s just say that

I am the actual and factual supernatural… sight and surrounds

Signification of conversation

Two or more words rhyming in song form or spoken syncupation

Heh, the reason the rudery reanimation and realization of life is rhythm

I am the heartbeat and the heartache, the here and now

I am the purpose, the point… the living proof of a god somewhere

The lifeline, lifelike laserbeam, the progression and direction

Always will be always was

What all comes from and all must return

The center of a perfect circle, I am your soul

Music of your mind

Each feeling causing each function to be in conjunction with the music

I am the music…

[break]

I am the music

[beat changes]

Let’s get started shall we, cause you know it’s time gone

Every time these niggaz rhyme wrong

So uhh, lights, camera, action I’m on

I’ll have them standing in line to get their mind blown

I’m selling soul

Rapping and singing and screaming and yelling soul

Manufacturing, marketing, pricing, packaging, and e-mailing soul

With no rehearsal, this one verse’ll whole hearse you

Now a commercial, but what I must first do

is make my presentation a bit more personal

Everything must go – for a small price you can have the heart of me

There is no part of me that can’t be calculated into a commodity

My musings amount to a milestone a million miles above monotony

And it’ll make you feel so good, it got to be God, it got to be

I paint prophecy, you know airbrush atrocity with philosophy

And people ask me am I gon’ preach one of these days

and I just tell ’em “possibly”

If you let me, I’ll end up being everything probably

And obviously it’s like any other job would be so you might as well thank God for me

But isn’t it amazing, how the antenna ain’t nothing but a sinner

You just can’t go and be ordained over dinner

Now I can interest an intellectual or A-B-C it for a beginner

But yes my seasons still change, and it is almost winter

And it give it to you at God-speed, but yet it’s gentle

And when I rhyme I make reading fundamentals or even black and white

My lyric is live and living color, my flow if fluorescent

Like scripture highlighted in bright yellow

And all this for $9.99, shit that’s wonderful

And the great thing about it is, if you disagree you’re money’s refundable

But there’s always something rewarding, about every Cee-Lo Green recording

Cuz even after all your expenses people still aspire affording

It’s incredible how convincing I can be with a camera pointed at me

But really sometimes rapping feel like tapping to make a cracker happy

But when the DAT play and the beat get bumping like adolescent acne

It’s kinda sad but it’s showtime, my sentiment exactly

So don’t get mad, everybody’s doing it

You know you wouldn’t mind a commercial with your own tennis shoe in it

Whether you’re selling a dream, selling a scheme, or playing a role

Like it or not we’re selling soul…

Cee Lo Green Purple Hearts

I brought home scars from the battle

But a woman’s scorn is worse than any war

In my absence her heart hadn’t grown any fonder

Apparently she’s forgotten what I’m fighting for

I said I would be

Behind enemy lines

Would’ve died a thousand times

And you doubt me

Without even thinking twice

My life I’d sacrifice

But you doubt me, why

And why not acknowledge me

When I’ve been a soldier for your love

I consider you my duty

I have not come all this way not to win

Persevering for our love’s survival

Living each day just to fight again

I said I went

Behind enemy lines

Would’ve died a thousand times

But you doubt me

Why, without even thinking twice

My life I’d sacrifice

But you doubt me

And why not acknowledge me

I’ve been a soldier for your love

I said I went

Behind enemy lines

Would’ve died a thousand times

But you doubt me

Why, without even thinking twice

My life I’d sacrifice

But you doubt me

And why not acknowledge me

I’ve been a soldier for your love

Ooh our love
