Shaggy Bridges

[Chorus:]

A bet you wish you never burn that bridge

Oh no cause now your like the crosses

I bet you wish you never burn that bridge

Oh no cause now your like the crosses

I bet you wish you never burn that bridge

Oh no cause now you like the crosses

I bet you wish you never burn that bridge

Oh no cause now your like the crosses

[Verse 1:]

Climbing up the ladder you better watch your steps

Watch how you a flex and watch the moves you meck

Careful of the people you disrespect

Dem wi rosicrucian man nah tek no check

Cause when you coming down they might not wanna treat you right

And when you coming down that’s when you gonna get the fight

And now your wishing that you were a little more polite

And now the table turn and everything a come to light

[Chorus]

[Verse 2:]

It’s no coincident the people you meet

You haffi careful how you move in the street

The same man you pass when you going up

When you coming down, him a laugh and a grin him teeth

Grandma say today for you, tomorrow for me

That’s when you have to face your real sorrows for real

I know you wish you never burn your bridges

But who cyaa hear haffi feel

A cyaa believe yo burn it, yo burn it, a weh you a go walk

When you haffi cross the river in a dark

You burn it, you burn all your bridges in the pass

Now your future lead you to the same path

[Chorus]

Shaggy Ultimatum

[Intro: Shaggy]

Ultimatum, badman nuh tek ultimatum,

go wey, yuh haffi stay

[Refrain: Natasha Watkins]

If I stay, would you put an end

to all the games you play

Can you promise me

that you will never stray

Has to be a new beginning from today,

only way I will stay

But if I go,

this will be the final curtain of the show

You have lost the best thing

that you ever known

Guess you have to learn

to make it on your own

Let me know stay or go

[Verse: Shaggy]

Before you go let’s analyze the situation

I’m a typical Jamaican

why you laying your frustration on me

When we met it was a perfect combination

But you know my reputation

don’t know what you were expecting (of) me

Fight back, you can fight

get things a go if yuh nuh like that

Cause I know that

when you (leave) you come right back

Your new found determination

sounds to me like desperation

There’s no ground for termination

[Refrain: Natasha Watkins]

If I stay, would you put an end

to all the games you play

Can you promise me

that you will never stray

Has to be a new beginning from today,

only way I will stay

But if I go,

this will be the final curtain of the show

You have lost the best thing

that you ever known

Guess you have to learn

to make it on your own

Let me know stay or go

[Verse: Shaggy]

I must admit I have a weakness

for these women

Who a plot like them a villian try the best

to separate you from me

I don’t understand

just why the hell your cousin

When you knew that she meant nothing

so what if she was your cousin

You say fight back,

how the hell could I resist

when she’s dressed like that

Tell the truth I had to leave

but she came right back

Now you heard the explanation

taken to consideration

it was sexual frustration

[Refrain: Natasha Watkins]

If I stay, would you put a end

to all the games you play

Can you promise me

that you will never stray

Has to be a new beginning from today,

only way I will stay

But if I go,

this will be the final curtain of the show

You have lost the best thing

that you ever known

Guess you have to learn

to make it on your own

Let me know stay or go

[Bridge: Shaggy (Natasha Watkins)]

(Goodbye my darling)

Baby baby tell me

why your in a hurry to leave

(Goodbye my darling)

See a lot I can’t believe

that this is happening to me

(Goodbye my darling)

Yeah I know I made mistakes

but this is meant to be

(Goodbye my darling)

I promise I’ll do better

baby stay with me

[Refrain & Outro: Natasha Watkins]

If I stay, would you put a end

to all the games you play

Can you promise me

that you will never stray

Has to be a new beginning from today,

only way I will stay

But if I go,

this will be the final curtain of the show

You have lost the best thing

that you ever known

Guess you have to learn

to make it on your own

Let me know stay or go

If I stay, would you put a end

to all the games you play

Can you promise me

that you will never stray

Has to be a new beginning from today,

only way I will stay

But if I go,

this will be the final curtain of the show

You have lost the best thing

that you ever known

Guess you have to learn

to make it on your own

Let me know stay or go

If I stay, would you put a end

to all the games you play

Can you promise me

that you will never stray

Has to be a new beginning from today,

only way I will stay

But if I go,

this will be the final curtain of the show

You have lost the best thing

that you ever known

Guess you have to learn

to make it on your own

Shaggy Hookie Jookie

If you creep pon your man no mek no-one see you

Can’t mek nobody have no secret for you

[Lady’s voice] Uhhhh, uhh, uhhh

If you creep pon your man no mek no-one see you

Can’t mek nobody have no secret for you

Hookie jookie and the nookie that i’m giving to you

[Lady’s voice] Uhhhh, uhh, uhhh

Ask a woman if she’s faithful she says yes indeed

Can’t swear for a woman when she is in need

Overtaken by a hunger that she has to feed

Whoever gives her what she wants gonna follow their lead

[Strange Voice] What do you think will happen when she wants the ride

When you won’t give her and she steps outside

Knock on my door at a quarter past five

Well you know i’m going to let her inside

Guess what will happen when i draw those blinds

What was yours is now suddenly mine

She comes back and shes all full of smiles

And your too dumb to recognize these signs

Can’t mek nobody have no secret for you

Hookie jookie and the nookie that i’m giving to you

[Lady’s voice] Uhhhh, uhh, uhhh

If you creep pon your man no mek no-one see you

Can’t mek nobody have no secret for you

Hookie jookie and the nookie that i’m giving to you

[Lady’s voice] Uhhhh, uhh, uhhh

When a man gives a gal bun him give her that with cheese

Meet a woman now and later have her on her knees

But to hide it like a woman isn’t done with ease

No matter how you try to lie the truth she always sees

[Lady’s voice] Uhhh…

[Strange voice] The guilt is written all over your face

She already done tried your case

Cause you made it so easy to trace

Now somebodys gonna take your place

So when you’re out there and you’re having your fling

Slamming and banging and bedsprings sing

Back home in bed like she won’t notice a thing

Down there smells like Irish Spring

Can’t mek nobody have no secret for you

Hookie jookie and the nookie that i’m giving to you

[Lady’s voice] Uhhhh, uhh, uhhh

If you creep pon your man no mek no-one see you

Can’t mek nobody have no secret for you

Hookie jookie and the nookie that i’m giving to you

[Lady’s voice] Uhhhh, uhh, uhhh

Ask a woman if she’s faithful she says yes indeed

Can’t swear for a woman when she is in need

Overtaken by a hunger that she has to feed

Whoever gives her what she wants gonna follow their lead

When a man gives a gal bun him give her that with cheese

Meet a woman now and later have her on her knees

But to hide it like a woman isn’t done with ease

No matter how you try to lie the truth she always sees

[Lady’s voice] Oooo…
