decades of fun

Words for a Nearly Spring Weekend

I have been dragging ass through February but March is here and it looks like we might have all survived another winter. Time to rock and roll for sure. I had two songs on the iPod the last couple of days that kept me going, particularly the lyrics, so I wanted to post them for your enjoyment:

Nightrain [by Slash, Izzy, Duff & Axl]

Well I’m a west coast struttin’
One bad mother
Got a rattlesnake suitcase
under my arm
Said I’m a mean machine
Been drinkin’ gasoline
and honey
you can make my motor hum

I got one chance left
in a nine live cat
I got a dog eat dog sly smile
I got a Molotov cocktail
with a match to go
I smoke my cigarette with style
And I can tell you honey
you can make my money tonight

Wake up late
Honey put on your clothes
Take your credit card to the liquor store
That’s one for you and two for me
By tonight
I’ll be loaded like a freight train
Flyin’ like an aeroplane
Feelin’ like a space brain
One more time tonight


Elevators (Me & You) [by Andre & BigBoi]

Got stopped at the mall the other day
Heard a call from the other way
that I just came from, some nigga was sayin somethin’
talkin’ bout “Hey man, you remember me from school? Smoke some?”
“Naw not really” but he kept smilin’ like a clown
facial expression lookin’ silly
and he kept askin’ me, what kind of car you drive?
I know you paid
I know y’all got buku of hoes
from all them songs that y’all done made!
And I replied that I had been goin’ through the same thing that he had
True, I got more fans than the average man
but not enough loot to last me to the end of the week
I live by the beat like you live check to check
If you don’t move yo’ feet then I don’t eat so we like neck to neck
Yes, we done come a long way like them slim-ass cigarettes
from Virginia, this ain’t gon’ stop
so we just gonna continya’
