Ayo, you ready?
Let's do it?
Mm, yeah
Yeah
Whoa-whoa, ah
Come on

I'm the definition of half man, half drugs
Ask the clubs, Bad Boy, that's what's up
After bucks, crush crews after us
No games, we ain't laughin' much
Nothin' but big things, check the hit-list
How we twist shit, what changed but the name?
We still here, you're rockin' with the best
Don't worry if I write rhymes, I write checks (ha)
Who's the boss? Dudes is lost
Don't think 'cause I'm iced out, I'ma cool off
Who else but me? (Who else?) And if you don't feel me
That means you can't touch me, it's ugly, trust me
Get it right, dawg, we ain't ever left
We just move in silence and rep to the death (yeah)
It's official, I survive what I been through
Y'all got drama, the saga continues

We ain't goin' nowhere, we ain't goin' nowhere
We can't be stopped now, 'cause it's Bad Boy for life
We ain't goin' nowhere (uh-uh), we ain't goin' nowhere (uh-uh)
We can't be stopped now (Bad Boy), 'cause it's Bad Boy for life

Ayo, straight from the Harlem streets
I don't play, I push it down wit the Harlem Heat (uh-huh)
All a sudden niggas got a problem wit me (Black, what happened?)
They run around actin' like the Black-o can't eat
And you know what? (What?) For some strange reason (uh)
I'm off of this medication, feelin' deranged needin'
For y'all to put the word out (come on, come on), we ain't leavin'
We tryna be rich before we all stop breathin' (come on)
Therefore (what?), we kinda hustle lames
Stay layin' down our muscle games (come on)
Still turn niggas' dreams to flames (yeah)
You got the wire? If not, I ain't sayin' no names, you'll soon expire (ha)
No pain (nothin'), I feel remorse
Yes, of course it's me and Diddy up first racin' Porsches
With the big twin valve exhausts (yeah)
On the cover of your Vibes (haha), XXLs, and Sources, bitch (yeah, come on)

We ain't goin' nowhere (uh-uh), we ain't (uh-uh) goin' nowhere (we ain't goin' nowhere)
We can't be stopped now (that's right), 'cause it's Bad Boy for life
We ain't (we ain't) goin' nowhere (uh-uh), we ain't (uh-uh) goin' (we ain't goin' nowhere)
We can't be stopped now, 'cause it's Bad Boy for life (yeah, yeah, yo, yeah)

And ain't shit changed, since the Notorious (We miss you B.I.G.)
See everything still glorious (yeah)
We still got warriors, still be the victorious (that's right)
See it's a lot of them, but it's more of us
Still got cash to blow, raps that flow
Still them cats that know, pack your flow
That's fo' sho', bottles that pop
Joints that rock, play the background
Hand on my jock, holdin' my Glock (haha)
Money to get (yeah), cars to flip (uh)
Bars to sit at and sip Cognac with jewels that drip (come on)
Hoes to see, make sure they knowin' it's me (they know it's you)
Drop that beat, can't believe that I MC (haha)
Bad Boy 'til the casket drop (Bad Boy)
Gotta love it, place nothin' above it (nothin')
It's on like that (come on), don't believe, we ain't gone like that
We're always gonna be here (yeah)
We there (uh) every motherfuckin' year (what? Let's go)

We ain't (Bad Boy) goin' nowhere, we ain't goin' nowhere (we ain't goin' nowhere)
We can't be stopped now, 'cause it's Bad Boy for life (come on)
We ain't (uh-uh) goin' nowhere, we ain't (uh-uh) goin' nowhere (what?)
We can't be stopped now, 'cause it's Bad Boy for life

We ain't goin' nowhere, we ain't goin' nowhere
(We ain't goin' nowhere, we gon' stay right here forever and ever and ever and ever, come on)
We can't be stopped now, 'cause it's Bad Boy for life
We ain't goin' nowhere, we ain't goin' nowhere
(We ain't goin' nowhere, we gon' stay right here, we ain't goin' nowhere, we gon' stay right here)
We can't be stopped now, 'cause it's Bad Boy for life

We ain't (yeah, uh-huh) goin' nowhere, (uh-uh) we ain't (uh-uh) goin' nowhere
We can't be stopped now, 'cause it's Bad Boy for life

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/

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
