Tha Dogg Pound's in the house (the bomb)
Ey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Tha Dogg Pound's in the house)
Snoop Doggy Dogg (the bomb)
Snoop Doggy Dogg (Dogg)

From the depths of the sea, back to the block
Snoop Doggy Dogg, funky as the, the, The D.O.C.
Went solo on that ass, but it's still the same
Long Beach is the spot where I served my 'caine
Follow me, follow me, follow me, follow me, but don't lose your grip
Nine-trizzay's the yizzear for me to fuck up shit
So I ain't holdin' nothin' back
And motherfucker I got five on the twenty sack
It's like that and as a matter of fact (rat-tat-tat-tat)
'Cause I never hesitate to put a nigga on his back
Yeah, so peep out the manuscript
You see that it's a must we drop gangsta shit
What's my motherfuckin' name?

Snoop Doggy Dogg (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Snoop Doggy Dogg (the bomb)
Da-da-da-da-da, do-do-do-do-do-do
Da-da (Dogg)

It's the bow to the wow, creepin' and crawlin'
Yiggy yes y'allin', Snoop Doggy Dogg in
The motherfuckin' house like every day
Droppin' shit with my nigga mister Dr. Dre
Like I said, niggas can't fuck with this
And niggas can't fuck with that
Shit that I drop 'cause you know it don't stop
Mister One Eight Seven on a motherfuckin' cop
Tic-toc, never the Glock, just some nuts and a cock
Robbin' motherfuckers, then I kill them bloodclaats
And I step through the fog and I creep through the smog
'Cause I'm Snoop Doggy (who?) Doggy (what?) Doggy (Dogg)

Snoop Doggy Dogg
Snoop Doggy Dogg (the bomb)
(Bow, wow, wow, yippy-yo, yippy-yay)
(Bow, wow, wow, yippy-yo) (the bomb)
(Bow, wow, wow, yippy-yo, yippy-yay)
(Bow, wow, wow, yippy-yo-yo-yo-yo-yo) (Dogg)

Now just throw your hands in the motherfuckin' air
And wave the motherfuckers like ya just don't care (Dogg)
Yeah, roll up the dank and pour the drank
And watch your step (why?) 'Cause Doggy's on the gank
My bankroll's on swole
My shit's on hit, legit, now I'm on parole, stroll
With Tha Dogg Pound right behind me
And up in your bitch, is where ya might find me
Layin' that, playin' that G Thang
She want the nigga with the biggest nuts, and guess what?
He is I, and I am him, slim with the tilted brim
What's my motherfuckin' name?

Snoop Doggy Dogg (the bomb)
Snoop Doggy Dogg
Snoop Doggy Dogg (the bomb)
Snoop Doggy Dogg (Dogg)
Da-da-da-da-da, do-do-do-do-do-do

Snoop Dogg and the Dogg Pound (Dogg) (the bomb)
Oh, yeah, Snoopy Dogg, Snoopy Dogg

Yeah, yeah (Dogg), I know his name
Come on Snoopy, come on Snoopy (the bomb)
And Tha Dogg Pound
Snoopy Dogg (the bomb), Snoopy Dogg

(Nasty Dogg, Doggy Dogg)

    I first got this album on cassette (going back a few years, kids) and I completely wore it out, to the point that it wouldn't play anymore.

    If rappers made albums half as nice as this Hip Hop wouldn't suck as much as it does now.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,
