The Gap Band No Colour Lines

Ooh why

Oh why

Why does love hate?

Why do we segregate?

Can we consummate?

Why do we separate?

Love can conquer hate

My friend it’s not too late

Why contemplate?

It’s time to celebrate

Love conquers all

It’s the missing thing

That everybody needs

It’s like a breath of spring

And if we love, love and make peace

Let all this hatred cease

Colour has no place in peace

Hear these words I say

My friend we’re on our way

To a brighter day

Love will lead the way

The colour lines are gone

It’s time to right our wrongs

Listen to this song

Those days have all darn gone

No colour lines

No colour lines

Open up your eyes

Your hearts and your minds

Then we will find

We as people all are blind

We’re running out of time

You’ll see

We’re all the same there’s no colour lines

Nooo

Ohhh

No no no no no no no no

There are no colour lines

(There is no white or black, black or white, red yellow or brown)

No no no no no no no no no no

No colour lines

No colour lines

Open up your eyes

Your hearts and your minds

Then we will find we as people all are blind

We’re running out of time

You’ll see

Were all the same there is no colour lines

Were all the same there is no colour lines

Were all the same there is no colour lines

No colour lines

The Gap Band Burn Rubber On Me (Why You Wanna Hurt Me)

Woo, I gave you my money, I gave you my time

Why you wanna hurt me, girl

Are you serious, I’m just curious

Why you wanna hurt me, girl

Just because you’re not for real

Why you wanna hurt me, girl

Just because you’re not for real

Why you wanna hurt me, girl

Never, ever had a lover

Who put the pedal to the mettle

And burn rubber on me, Charlie

Oh, no

You took my money, you took my time

Made me think everything was fine

Then you upped and ran away

And made me just go crazy

I never, ever had a lover

Who put the pedal to the metal

And burn rubber on me, Charlie

Oh, no, no, no

Just because you’re not for real

Why you wanna hurt me, girl

Just because you’re not for real

Why you wanna hurt me, girl

I never, ever had a lover

Who put the pedal to the metal

And burn rubber on me, Charlie

Oh, no, no, no

Just because you’re not for real

Why you wanna hurt me, girl

Just because you’re not for real

Why you wanna hurt me, girl

You told me to go up the block

And get you a strawberry pop

When I got back to the flat

You had burned rubber out the back

I went to the closet and saw no clothes

All I saw was hangers and poles

I went to the phone and called your mother

And told me you had burned rubber on me, Charlie

OH, no, no [x13]

Just because you’re not for real

Why you wanna hurt me, girl

Just because you’re not for real

Why you wanna hurt me, girl

I never, ever had a lover

Who put the pedal to the metal

And burned rubber on me, Charlie

OH, no, no, no, no, oh, no, yeah, yeah

Just because you’re not for real

Why you wanna hurt, me girl

Just because you’re not for real

Why you wanna hurt me, girl

Just because your not for real

Why you wanna hurt me, girl

You took my money, you took my time

Made me think everything was fine

Like the clock on the wall, said ding-ding-dong

Got to find another lover that won’t be gone

She won’t put the pedal to the metal

And burn rubber, burn rubber, on me, Charlie

NO, no, no, no

I never, ever had a lover

Who put the pedal to the metal

And burned rubber on me, Charlie

NO, no, no, no, no, no [repeat 8x]

The Gap Band The Boys Are Back In Town

Just got off a long hard road back at home again

remeniscing good ole times, the things that happened then

Standing in a summer breeze, whistling in the tall oak trees

no one here but the guys in me, the boys are back in town

Drifted into town one day, my how things had changed

skyscrapers and parking lots, boy its a shame

how music calls you to your fame, get out there and play it’s game

come back home the whole town is strange

Here me say Na

Na, na na na na na, na na na, na na na na na

The boys are back in town

Strolling through a park that day, where a church had been

watching all the young kids play, make their spinning tops spin

happy youthful children sounds mocked a crazy carnival clown

a little boy kicking a ball around, glad we’re back in town

Went on to the town square, a crowd was gather there

looking at the pretty girls, the fairest of the fair

The whole damn crowd began to cheer, many friends that we held so dear

made us glad that we were all here, glad we’re back in town

Here me say Na

Na, na na na na na, na na na, na na na na na

The boys are back in town

Here me say Na

Na, na na na na na, na na na, na na na na na

What the children need to see, is what the world really should be

no one knows but the guys and me, glad we’re back in town

Here me say Na

Na, na na na na na, na na na, na na na na na

The boys are back in town
