"You Got The Dirtee Love" as written by and John Truelove Mick Walsh....
Everybody wants to be famous
Nobody wants to be nameless, aimless
People act shameless, tryna live like entertainers
Want a fat crib with the acres
So they spend money that they ain't made yet
Got a Benz on tick that they ain't paid yet
Spend their pay check in the west end on the weekend
Got no money by the end of the weekend
But they don't care 'cause their life is a movie
Starring Louis V, paid for by yours truly
Truthfully, its a joke, like a bad episode of Holly Oaks
Can't keep up with the cover notes
So they got bad credit livin' on direct debit
In debt but they still don't get
Cos they too busy livin' the high life, the night life
Huggin' the high way, livin' large and they all say

Sometimes it seems that the going is just too rough
And things go wrong no matter what I do
Now and then it seems that life is just too much
But you've got the love I need to see me through

Let me take you down to London city
Where the attitudes bad and the weather is shitty
Everybody's on the paper chase, its one big rat race
Everybody got a screw face so many too fake
Checking the height, they say they ready to ride
I'm on the inside looking at the outside
So its a accurate reflection
City wide north east west and the south side
Everywhere I go there's a girl on the corner
Guns and drugs got the city like a sauna,
And its getting warmer and out of order
Trying to put a struggling mother to a morner
Mr politician can you tell me the solution
Whats the answer whats the conclusion
Is it an illusion, is it a mirage
I see youngsters dying 'cause their tryna live large
And they all say

Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air
I know I can count on you
Sometimes I feel like saying, "Lord I just don't care"
But you've got the love I need to see me through

You got the love
You got the love
You got the love
You got the love
You got the love
You got the love

We are livin' in the days of the credit crunch
Give me the dough, I'm trying have a bunch
But I cant have rice for lunch
Its not there ain't enough to share
Ain't fair never dreamed that he could be rare
Who cares who dares to make a change
Everybody in the club trying to make it rain
But not for famine just for the sake of habit
Fifteen minutes of fame and everything's the same
Again and again I see the same thing
Everybody acting like they their plane sailin'
I see rough seas ahead maybe a recession
And then a depression in whatever profession
This is my confession I cant fight I'm in the forefront
Living for money ready to start like a bungee jump
With no rope but I ain't trying to see the bottom
Because that's were I came from, I ain't forgotten

You got the love
You got the love
You got the love
You got the love
You got the love
You got the love

Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air
I know I can count on you
Sometimes I feel like saying, "Lord I just don't care"
But you've got the love I need to see me through

    General CommentHOW HAS ANYONE NOT COMMENTED ON THIS YET?!

    I am listening to this now.
    It's an amazing blend of Dizzee (who I don't usually like) and Florence (<3) and captures both their strengths.
    It's a song that has made me smile for no reason. And I have depression. So its a happy song :D

    Trust me, this song may seem MASSIVE OVERRATED.
    But its not.
    It's a great song.
    I love it.

    General CommentI think this song is Referring to God "Oh Lord what's the use" She is saying that God, she can always count on God to bring her through because he's got the Love that we all need to get us through.

    General CommentThis is a really fun song. That said, the mashup makes this song really, really weird.
