TLC Sumthin’ Wicked This Way Comes

Remeber back in da time

When da only sign we had was picket

But now in ’94 it be

This way somethin’ come wicked

Gangs killin’ others fo colors

Thangs that we wear fo fashion

Other brothers take it fo a reason

To be blastin’ what da cuff is goin’ on

Not soft like buttercupus but

Had enough of singin’ dat same song

See I stayed across da street from da projects

Took out yo momma trash and groceries

To her trunk to keep my pockets

Fat like cellulite only been to jail one week

Fo some shullbit and I pray to God I won’t repeat

I shoulda pulled it when I had da chance to

No I shouldna did dat ’cause if I did dat

Yall would not hear dat fat shit

Dat keeps you on yo tippy –

Toes like dat sellout not callin’ no names

But really who’s bad

I go through obstacles like a whole box

Of condoms you can’t forget

Where you come from

Take a good look in the mirror and tell

Me do you like what you see

Masters of deception corruption and evil

But you’re always quick to point the finger

At me

Won’t somebody tell me

[Chorus]

I just don’t understand

The ways of the world today

Sometimes I feel like there’s nothing

To live for

So I’m longing for the days of yesterday

What gave you the right to misjudge me

And write me off on the wall

Acting as if you understand me

In reality you just don’t know me at all

Sometimes I can’t help but wonder

If this was how it’s meant to be

But if you search deep enough in your soul

You’ll always find a slight reminder of me

Won’t somebody tell me

[Chorus]

A-yo

If we could all agree to lettin’

Our souls become free of that sweet

Bitterness then whose chest would

Have the most seeds

I keep misfocusin’ my needs

And this stress on my back

With them caps they be blastin’

Into my knap sack

Ain’t no accidental deathtraps

My mishap is the fact that

I’m destined to snap

It’s when I feel as though my body’s

Able to go my mind is ready to flow

Did you know first you catch

And then I throw

It’s my own sense of time

If I’m late it’s ’cause I’m endin’ my day

Just when the sun shines

And still gently advising the arisin’

Of the moon as it rolls around

Into my soundproof dimension

[Chorus]

TLC Case Of The Fake People

I thought that I knew about ’em

Thought that they would never do me wrong

Well well they smile in your face

When all the time they wanna take your place

Them backstabbers

Same old scene that

You’ve seen for so long

Always want to be around you

But as jealous as they come

Well don’t want you to win that race

‘Cause if you do it’s gonna lessen their space

That’s when I decide to say

[Chorus]

Goodbye, goodbye

To all the fake people in my life

I never wanted you around me

So be on your way now

You better think twice

Before you let people in your life

Because when you put down

No one is around you

You got a case of the fake people

A case of the fake people

I thought that I knew about ’em

The only ones that really care for me

Oh yeah

But they shouldn’t be that way

Only down for as long as

You can give security

Same old scene that you’ve seen for so long

Always want to be around you

But as jealous as they come well

Don’t want you to win that race

‘Cause if you do it’s gonna lessen their space

That’s when I dcide to say

[Chorus]

TLC UnPretty

I wish I could tie you up in my shoes

Make you feel unpretty too

I was told I was beautiful

But what does that mean to you

Look into the mirror who’s inside there

The one with the long hair

Same old me again today (yeah)

My outsides look cool

My insides are blue

Everytime I think I’m through

It’s because of you

I’ve tried different ways

But it’s all the same

At the end of the day

I have myself to blame

I’m just trippin’

[Chorus:]

You can buy your hair if it won’t grow

You can fix your nose if he says so

You can buy all the make up

That M.A.C. can make

But if you can’t look inside you

Find out who am I

To be in the position that make me feel

So damn unpretty

I’ll make you feel unpretty too

Never insecure until I met you

Now I’m bein’ stupid

I used to be so cute to me

Just a little bit skinny

Why do I look to all these things

To keep you happy

Maybe get rid of you

And then I’ll get back to me (hey)

My outsides look cool

My insides are blue

Everytime I think I’m through

It’s because of you

I’ve tried different ways

But it’s all the same

At the end of the day

I have myself to blame

Can’t believe I’m just trippin’

[Chorus]

[Chorus]

Oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh (oh)

Oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh (oh)

[Chorus]

[Chorus]
