(I'm gonna give it to you)
One for the money
Two for the bass
Three to get you going
'Cause Da Brat's in the place (I'm gonna give it to you)
Yeah, huh
(I'm gonna give it to you)

It's me, the O.G .funk bandit
(Who's that?) The B to the R-A-T and in fact
If you ain't heard of me, take a seat, lay back and listen
As I bust for your ass on this Funkdafied mission
Just kick off your shoes and relax your feet (that's right)
Party on down with Da Brat and her beat
Now it goes like that and that's how it goes
I'm gonna give it to all you negroes and hoes
So listen up (listen up)
Make sure you listen up well
And don't miss shit 'cause this bitch be bad as hell
Truth of the matter is, I splatter kids
That talk shit in a gangster's way
That's how them fools get dealt with
So, what you want to do, bitch? Don't even trip
Step up, step up and I'ma bust your lip
Now I know that you know that I know you don't want me to
But keep on tripping and I'm gon' give it to you, biatch

(I'm gonna give it to you, you, ooh)
(I'm gonna give it to you, whoa)
(I'm gonna give it to you)

Brat is the fantastic, romantic
Single-handed bandit and damn it
Don't get no better, better, it don't get no more
Than the flow that I flow for you negroes and hoes
Devastating, captivating, elevating as I (smooth)
Operating and I love to get high
Well, nigga, fire it up (say what?), Nigga, fire it up
At your request, I guess it's time for me to get fucked up
It goes one puff, two puff, three puff, four
From the bottom to the top, top to bottom, I go
So now you know what I ain't and what I is
It's the baddest new bitch in this hip-hop biz
O.G. is what I am, a brat is what I be
Blunts are what I smoke and you can't see me
So let it go 'cause my shit is tight
Take it how I give it and enjoy the night, right

(I'm gonna give it to you, you, ooh)
Yeah, it's like that, it's like that
For the nine-fucking-four
It's Da Brat and you don't know (I'm gonna give it to you)
You better ask some-motherfucking-body
La di da di, I came to party, bitch
Ayy JD, sing this shit with me, boy (I'm gonna give it to you)
Right here
Word up, hey, word up, hey
Word up, hey, for real though, shit
Word up, hey, word up, hey
Word up, hey, for real though

(I'm gonna give it to you, you, ooh)
(I'm gonna give it to you, whoa)

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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."

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." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/
