In our town we have a State Attorney by the name of Janet Reno
She locks brothers up for not paying their child support
In your town you may have someone just like her

You think you're so slick, that you won't have to pay
You slay, get a baby, then run away
Oh, but I got a trick for your monkey ass
The boys that don't pay get cased up fast
You ?answer to? Janet Reno and she lays the law
And when she's through with you, you'll wish you never saw
Me or the baby or the place where we met
Digging up old gold that you wish you could forget
The proof is here, it's livin' and breathin'
And Janet Reno's makin' sure that I start receivin'
All the money you get, all the checks you make
Janet Reno will make sure and take

Janet Reno comes to town collecting all the money
You stayed one day, then ran away, and started actin funny
She caught you down on 15th Ave., you tried to hide your trail
She found your ass and locked you up, now who can post no bail?
(Bust it!)

You're out in your 'vert, dickin' her down
You start to get babblin' when Reno comes around
You start changing your looks, your clothes and your car
You're not a mama's boy, you're a projects star
It's time to pay your dues, I mean pay in full
Janet's in control, you ain't got no pull
You can't boss around like the boys on the ave.
And slowly but surely I'm gettin' all that you have
From your bad-ass suits to your Revlon cologne
Your diamond rings, gold rope and everything you own
Will get taken and then you be sad to the max
And I'll even get your income tax

He walks in a courtroom, cool and slow
And calls Janet Reno a no good dirty hoe
She locks yo ass up, now you don't know what to do
The boys on the ave. are sure dissin' you
(Hit it!)

Janet Reno gets justice for all
You can solve your problem with a phone call
So if you have a problem that you want resolved
Just straighten it out when you get in court
Put your faith in her and you won her respect
And if it's up to her you get all your checks
She helped me out of a jam, I'm doin' well on my own
It could be the same for yours, been proven and shown

Yes my man had a Brougham
But this time he's not drivin' it home
With a knick-knack-slam-splack, you hit it, now you're gone
Now I'm 'round town just pushin' your Brougham
The next time you start to make a selection
Make sure that you got some protection
Think twice the next time before you jump right in the bed
Take a minute out to put a rubber on your head

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.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives."

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.
