This party ain't over

[ Antoinette ]
That's what YOU think

[ VERSE 1: Antoinette ]
Hot damn, you're the hoe, so yo, pull up your zipper
This ain't 'How Ya Like Me Now' or 'Jack the Ripper'
You swing, you swung low, and now you're sub-sub
(Mh-mh) Yep, you f-ed up
Antoinette's the Boss, get it straight and remember that
I dis and don't miss, cause I ain't a friend of that
Scallywag, that Tom, Dick & Harry-hag
Don't get upset, homegirl, just get mad
You're a lightweight, so it's easy to demo teeth
A '10% Dis'? Here's a 100% beef
So get closer and try to figure how
You wasn't hype before, but you look like a [bleeped] now
And that's factual, cause I got actual
Proof, troop, I got you floatin like Fruit Loops
No wonder you hang with M-i-l-k
A brother that's a Gremlin and a rockhead deejay
It's a shame you didn't make no money
And roll with Antoinette? Hah - ain't that funny
And lucky you, here's a four leaf clover
Meanwhile: Lyte's out, the party's over

[ crowd chants ]
Lyte's out, now the party's over
Homegirl reminds me of my dead dog Rover
Lyte's out, now the party's over
Homegirl reminds me of my DEAD DOG Rover

(The party's) (over)

[ VERSE 2: Antoinette ]
Fly that fist, fly that fist, go 'head
She'll front and I'll fly that bitch's head
(Oooooohhh...) Yo G. Off, back to the program
Word to Hurb, they tried to dis this
But I'ma snow and drop a blizzard like Christmas
Just one of my - ehm, season's greetings
(To Lyte?) Yeah, to help the needy
So pitch and I'ma hit, you catch it
A present from me to you, now wrap it
In bandage, cause I do damage
And if I do say so myself, I do manage
To make a record dope, even when I'm dissin
I move right, and now you're left missin
In action, or should I say actions
Cause my satisfaction's a fraction
Of what I do when I'm hoggin it
I hold you like a jail cell, and you're the dog in it
I when I think, you're like my dead dog Rover
(Yo yo, Lyte's out) Yeah, the party's over

[ crowd chants ]
Lyte's out, now the party's over
Homegirl reminds me of my dead dog Rover
Lyte's out, now the party's over
Homegirl reminds me of my DEAD DOG Rover

[ VERSE 3: Antoinette ]
I stretch my arm like elastic and finally reach the hoe
Antoinette's dope, and now I'ma teach you, so
Ain't nobody chillin, your whole clan's wack
And damn, you cram to is understand that
Picture me in flicks more than Dudley
You may be Lyte, but you ain't lovely
I'm fed up, so I had to get rude
Now who's puffin with a bloody attitude

[ crowd chants ]
Lyte's out, now the party's over
Homegirl reminds me of my dead dog Rover
Lyte's out, now the party's over
Homegirl reminds me of my DEAD DOG Rover

[ VERSE 4: Antoinette ]
Now let's start booin the Audio 2 and
Whoever else is in your wick-wack crew'n
I got the rhymes, you got the place, name it
You get the picture? Now frame it
And you thought that you would hit with a dis
Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha... sucker, you missed

[ male voice ]
Oh boy!
E-ex-excuse me, m'am
Your new jam I like
But what about MC Lyte?
[ Antoinette ]
Ah, she's with the pipe

Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

@[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.

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."

No Surprises
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
