Raphael Saadiq 100 Yard Dash

Girl I tried to run but couldn’t get too far

My heart is pumping

But still I’m running in place

No matter how hard I try to ditch your touch

When you’re away too long oh girl is too much

But every time I run I make it

Oh so fast

Girl I’m runnin scared

My heart is beating so fast

I heard that you can make a man

Change his plan

That’s why I’m running fast

I’m running the hundred yard dash

I ran for the hills and girl there you were

How you appeared you see I’ll never know

I told the bartender to pour me a double fast

And light me a smoke so I can sing some jazz

Now here come them legs, here come those eyes

And neither one I could never deny

I’m trying to be smooth as I can

But I’ll guess I need another plan

I need your lovin’ baby oh so bad

Girl I’m runnin scared

My heart is beating so fast

I heard that you can make a man

Change his plan

That’s why I’m running fast

I’m running the hundred yard dash

Your love gets stronger

And it feels like every day is getting longer

I feel your love like a monkey on my back

Girl your heart is so big

See I can feel the attack

Whoa oh

I need your loving

I want your loving

I got to have your loving

I need ya

Got to

Got to…

Raphael Saadiq Rifle Love

[Talking:]

What’s up sweet heart?

What ever you did,

You shot me straight in the heart.

I like it, I like the way you doing it to me doll.

Whatever you doing,

Just keep on shooting (Damn yourself girl),

Just keep on shooting, cause you shot me straight in the heart… Girl shoot me with.

[Chorus:]

Shoot me with your rifle love, [gunshot]

I heard it go bang, bang

Done stuck me up again (Girl shoot me with).

Shoot me with your rifle love, [gunshot]

I hold me hands up high,

And touch and reach the sky.

[Raphael Saadiq:]

Is that your gun you shot me with, you know you are so wrong,

I love the way you put it on me, got me wanting more,

and every time I think about the love you’ve given me,

You shoot me with your rifle then you’re all that I can see.

Now all the other girls I thought I liked never had a gun like you,

The one you shoot makes me feel so happy, am in love with you,

See your rifle has a smoke with a stunner, automatic weapon got baby,

When I knew you were the one that could make me shine,

I knew you had to be mine oh mine,

Shoot me

[Chorus:]

Shoot me with your rifle love, [gunshot]

I heard it go bang, bang

Done stuck me up again (Girl shoot me with).

Shoot me with your rifle love, [gunshot]

I hold me hands up high,

And touch and reach the sky.

Say what done.

[Lucy Pearl:]

Put your hands in the air, surrender to me,

Better yet lay down on the ground,

Let mama pat you down, I’ll spin you all around,

My chambers full of heat.

[Raphael Saadiq:]

It was the day you caught my eye.

[Tony Toni:]

I can’t explain it

[Raphael Saadiq:]

This body shot could hurt your eye.

[Tony Toni:]

Now let’s get to it,

Out of all the girls I thought I knew,

Do ages just for you,

I even tried to keep one on the side,

Your love hit me right in my side.

[Chorus:]

Shoot me with your rifle love, [gunshot]

I heard it go bang, bang

Done stuck me up again (Girl shoot me with).

Shoot me with your rifle love, [gunshot]

I hold me hands up high,

And touch and reach the sky.

[Refrain: Raphael Saadiq]

See of all the girls it’s hard to find them any place [gunshot]

There’s not other girl in this town that could take your place,

You’re the first girl that I could never ever replace [gunshot]

So come a bless me darling, (baby come’ on now)

Cause your love is all I need,

(Uh yeah, uh yeah,) See what am saying

(Uh yeah,) I need somebody like you

(Uh, uh, uh yeah) That’s all you gotta do

(Uh yeah) Just shoot straight baby, shoot it straight now, [gunshot] that’s all am saying

If you don’t mind this is what I’d like to say right here.

[Chorus]

(Yeah, yeah, yeah) Shoot me with your rifle love, [gunshot]

I heard it go bang, bang

Done stuck me up again (Just shot me girl).

Shoot me with your rifle love, [gunshot]

I hold me hands up high,

And touch and reach the sky. [x2]

[Refrain: once until fade out]

Raphael Saadiq Let’s Take A Walk

This place is crowded, don’t know ’bout you

I need some sex, some sex with you ’cause you’re on my mind

I can feel your sweat, your body’s wet

And I need some help, girl you know what we need to do

Girl, let’s take a walk outside

Let’s take a walk outside

Let’s talk a walk outside

I’m ready to go, go grab your coat

It’s hard to hope, I’m dancing, let’s go

The mood is right, the scene is bright

Help, don’t you fight, I know the time is right

Girl, my lips is what I need you to have

Girl, let’s take a walk outside

Let’s take a walk outside

Girl, let’s talk a walk outside

Girl, let’s talk a walk

Let’s take a walk, baby

Let’s take a walk, baby

Let’s take a walk

Listen now, don’t you know

Looking happy anywhere

I know it’s colder but I don’t care

Let’s talk a walk outside

Let’s talk a walk outside

Not in my car, outside

You can scream my name

And you’d be glad you came

Let’s take a walk

Walk, walk, walk, walk

A walk, walk, walk, walk

Baby, a walk, walk

Walk, walk, walk

A walk, walk, walk, walk

Baby, a walk, walk
