Where my ladies at?
Where the fellas at?
Now where the dogs at?
Where the cats at?

Pussycats (yeah, all the ladies)
Keep it tight
Even if they bark all night (say, what?)
(Now lemme see y'all wave your hands from side to side)
With a knick-knack patty wack, don't give a dog a bone
'Cause if he hit it you gon' be all alone

Mama
You should've seen what he done to me
I said, mama
I should've took your advice

'Cause Paulo was a rolling stone
Wherever he laid his hat was his home
Stay away from those hot boys
'Cause I don't want you to get burned

Pussycats
(Shut 'em down, shut 'em down)
I said keep it tight
(No matter what they do)
Even if they bark all night
(All night, all night)
With a knick-knack patty wack, don't give a dog a bone
'Cause if he hit it you gon' be all alone

Said, pussycats
(I said shut 'em down, keep it closed)
Keep it tight
(No matter what they may do)
Even if they bark all night
(All night, all night) they could bark all night
With a knick-knack patty wack, don't give a dog a bone
'Cause if he hit it you gon' be all alone

Girlfriend
Innocent woman on the streets
Fell into seduction
After wanting the street poetry

Like a virgin touched for the very first time
She got open unaware of the seven signs
She fell victim to the darker side
But I'm here to tell you why

I said pussycats
(Said shut it down, shut it down)
Keep it tight
(They can say whatever they want to)
Even if they bark all night
(All night, all night) (let me tell y'all)
With a knick-knack patty wack, don't give a dog a bone
'Cause if he hit it you gon' be all alone

Pussycats (all the ladies)
(Yeah, pussycats, pussycats)
Keep it tight
(All of y'all keep it tight, keep it tight)
Even if they bark all night (say, what?)
(All night, all night)
With a knick-knack patty wack, don't give a dog a bone
'Cause if he hit it you gon' be all alone (you gon' be hurt)

The fellas, mh-mh, the ladies, uh-huh
The dogs, uh, uh, my cats, sing

No matter what they do
No matter what they say
No matter how loud they bark, don't let them play
No matter what they do
No matter what they say
Don't let 'em in girls, no, no way

No matter what they do
No matter what they say
No matter how loud they bark, don't let them play
No matter what they do
No matter what they say
Don't let 'em in girls, no, no way

Pussycats (all the ladies)
(Shut 'em down, shut 'em down)
Keep it tight
(No matter what they do or say)
Even if they bark all night
(All night, all night)
With a knick-knack patty wack, don't give a dog a bone (don't give it up)
'Cause if he hit it you gon' be all alone

Pussycats
(Uh, pussycats, pussycats)
Keep it tight
(Mama always used to tell me)
Even if they bark all night
(All night, all night, alright) (if they bark all night)
With a knick-knack patty wack, don't give a dog a bone
'Cause if he hit it you gon' be all alone

Now lemme clear something up here
I know it's a lot of real men out there
Much love to y'all
But we talking the dogs out there tonight (that's right, that's right)
So all the pussycats out there
Don't give it, don't give it up

(Don't you give it up) don't give a dog a bone
Don't give a dog a bone
(Don't you give it up) don't give a dog a bone

Battle Royale
Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
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.
