Lyric (Hot 100 peak)TitleArtist
The time has come to say fair's fair
To pay the rent, to pay our share
The time has come, a fact's a fact
It belongs to them, let's give it back (17)
Beat is for Eric B. and LL as well, hell
Wax is for Anthrax, still it can rock bells
Ever forever universal, it will sell
Time for me to exit, Terminator X it (-)
I'm like the needle, needle and spoon
Over the counter, with a shotgun
Pretty soon, everybody got one (3)
As long as I've been giving my love to you
You should be giving me your love too
But you just keep on actin' just like a fool
You know it ain't cool (8)
Here's a little song I wrote
You might want to sing it note for note (1)
City lights lay out before us
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder
And I had a feeling that I belonged
I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone (6)
I wanna hold you, so hear me out
I wanna show you what love's all about
Darlin' tonight, now I've got you in my sights (4)
That's great, it starts with an earthquake
Birds and snakes, an aeroplane
And Lenny Bruce is not afraid (69)
I've never been in love
I don't know what it is
Only knows if someone wants her
I want them if they want me (-)
Show me, show me, show me how you do that trick
The one that makes me scream, she said
The one that makes me laugh, she said (40)
I don't wanna touch you too much, baby
'Cause makin' love to you might drive me crazy
I know you think that love is the way you make it (1)
All you got is this moment
Twenty-first century's yesterday
You can care all you want
Everybody does, yeah that's okay (1)
So I don't want to learn to hold you, touch you
Think that you're mine
Because it ain't no joy for an uptown boy
Whose teacher has told him goodbye (1)
Put the needle on the record
Put the needle on the record
Put the needle on the record
When the drumbeats go like this (13)
Yo yo yo yo, baby pop
Yeah you, come here, gimme a kiss
Better make it fast or else I'm gonna get pissed
Can't you hear the music pumpin' hard like I wish you would? (19)
I got a love of my own, baby
I shouldn't get so hung up on you
Oh, I remember the way that we touch
I wish I didn't like it so much (1)
And it's something quite peculiar
Something that's shimmering and white
It leads you here despite your destination (24)
I never felt so in love before
Promise baby, you'll love me forever more
I swear I'm keeping you satisfied
'Cause you're the one for me (1)
We are the people that can find
Whatever you may need
If you got the money, honey
We got your disease (7)
Since you went away, I've been hanging around
I've been wondering why I'm feeling down
You went away, it should make me feel better (2)
