Oh, you didn't think we can do it again
Twista, Kanye West from Po Pimpin' to Poppin' Tags
From Champions to Slow Jammin', oh, baby
We can even make you a overnight celebrity
Know what I'm sayin'? Come on

Why don't we play somethin' these hoes'll like?
Drive whips I know they like
Twista, you told her right?
I could make you a celebrity overnight
Give you ice like Kobe wife
We sorta like Goldie, right?
The way we mold 'em right
I could make you a celebrity overnight

Girl, I see you in them Apple Bottom jeans
Chinchilla on your back, I wanna know your name
Girl, I'm Twista, I could blow your brains
Put you in a chameleon '04 Range
Still sexy when you smoke that flame
Jerk it like a chicken when you throw that thang
She got me hotter than a oven, the way that she talk
Switchin' to freaky, so I'm lovin' the way that she walk
You lookin' good, girl, you oughta be in pictures
Listen to me, I see your career goin' sky high
Takin' you home to the crib in the Chi
And every time I see your thighs, I cry when I drive by
Watchin' you should be a thrill, got the fellas on some Johnny Gill
Steady screamin', "My, my, my, my!"
Walk on the carpet with the diamonds that flick in the dark
Kickin' it on the couch at 106 & Park
I can see your beauty on the big screen
I can see me freakin' you with whip cream
I can see you on stage at the awards
With a dress better than Jennifer's and doin' big things
Kick it with me, I can mold your life
You lookin' good, girl, show you right
Dre told me you the prototype
I can make you a celebrity overnight

Why don't we play somethin' these hoes'll like?
Drive whips I know they like
Twista, you told her right?
I could make you a celebrity overnight
Give you ice like Kobe wife
We sorta like Goldie, right?
The way we mold 'em right
I could make you a celebrity overnight
Why don't we play somethin' these hoes'll like?
Drive whips I know they like
Twista, you told her right?
I could make you a celebrity overnight
Give you ice like Kobe wife
We sorta like Goldie, right?
The way we mold 'em right
I could make you a celebrity overnight

You want fame, you can take that path
Candlelights 'fore you take a bath
You got such a sensational ass
I'ma get you Jimmy Choo and Marc Jacob bags
I can cop her a 2003
Make her smile when she sees Spre's
I can get you on CDs and DVDs
Take you to BeBe's and BCBG
I can get you in the places to be into
The people to know or show you things to get into
I wanna be your lover and your confidant
And protect you from others, don't ever let a brother pimp you
If you want the stars, you can reach 'em, girl
Y'all, take a look at her, she got such an astonishin' body
I can see you in some Gucci or Robert Cavalli
And I bet she gon' put a hurt on 'em hard in the party
And you know you kill 'em in the club we go
You was born to be a pro, how you pose takin' photos
And I love you 'cause you freaky with the door closed
Drop it to the flo', let that go when you roll slow
And I love it when I hit it from the back
And you get on top of me and have a brother goin', "Oh, oh"
Girl, I love how you roll me right
I can make you a celebrity overnight

Why don't we play somethin' these hoes'll like?
Drive whips I know they like
Twista, you told her right?
I could make you a celebrity overnight
Give you ice like Kobe wife
We sorta like Goldie, right?
The way we mold 'em right
I could make you a celebrity overnight

See, see, baby girl
You see how you make a brother break down
I just gotta ask you, what you need?
What you need from me? Oh, you wanna be a star?
Oh, you messin' with the right one
I can take you there
I can make sure you've got all the finest things
Let me be your manager

Come here, girl, I could see you bored
Turn you to the queen that I see you for
Take you shoppin' on sprees in stores
I'ma get you to the MTV awards
We about to do a show tonight
You lookin' good girl, show you right
Take you places I know you like
I could make you a celebrity overnight
Come here, girl, you could hang if you bored
We could do plenty things plus more
I'm about to have you change in the stores
I can even get you to the Soul Train awards
We about to do a show tonight
You lookin' good, girl, show you right
Take you places I know you like
I could make you a celebrity overnight

    Well this is pretty much a song about sex. Think about it, "Overnight Celebrity". How else would you become famous overnight. By having sex with a celebrity? Like Twista?

    No body can't say Twista aint talented. he rap so fast! This song is about a guy wanting to give a woman the key to the luxurious life in exchange for sex, and dignity too if i might add.

    Still Love Ya Twista!!!!!!

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.
Album art
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.

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"

Holiday
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.
