Yo, I'll tell ya what I want, what I really really want
So tell me what ya want, whatcha really really want
I wanna, wanna, wanna, wanna, really really want is a zebrahead jam if you want my future, forget my past
If you wanna get with me better make it fast
Now don't go wasting, our precious time
Get your act together and we'll be just fine

Chorus
Yo, I'll tell ya what I want, what I really really want
So tell me what ya want, whatcha really really want
I wanna, wanna, wanna, wanna, really really want is to get, get down

If you wanna be my lover, you've gotta get with my friends
Make it last forever, friendship never ends
If you wanna be my lover, you have got to give
Takin is so easy, that's the way it is
What you think about that? now you know how I feel
Say you can handle my love, are you for real (are you for real? )
I won't be hasty, give you a try
If you might leave then I'll say goodbye

Chorus
Yo, I'll tell ya what I want, what I really really want
So tell me what ya want, whatcha really really want
I wanna, wanna, wanna, wanna, really really want is to get, get down

Here's a little story from z to d
If you wanna get with me you've gotta listen carefully
We've got toof in the house, who's hung like a mouse
O.g. wannabes that try to hang with me
But g don't play for free, he plays for the sensi
And to the critics... eat me
Slam your body down and wind it all around
Slam your body down and wind it all around

Chorus
Yo, I'll tell ya what I want, what I really really want
So tell me what ya want, whatcha really really want
I wanna, wanna, wanna, wanna, really really want is to get, get down

Slam your body down and wind it all around
S to the l to the a to the m
Slam your body down with the zebrahead, yeah!

    Does anyone else agree when I say that Zebrahead puts the Spice Girls to shame in this song? Their version sounds so much better!

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."

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
