(So)
He got big brown eyes, so he built nice
(Ooh)
Coming on strong, six pack showin'
(Oh, oh, ohh)
He's too cool, for his own shoes
(Ooh, ooh)
Nothing rude, but way too short for me

He tryin' to be
Extra smooth, extra smooth
Extra cool, extra cute
Am I'm supposed to talk to you? Be your boo
(Be your boo, be your boo)
Don't come trying to be extra smooth

(So, so)
He got line for line, wasting my time
(Ooh, ooh)
Frontin' in a ride, tryin' to catch my eye
(Eye, eye, eye, eye)
Disturbing my groove, tryin' to be smooth
(Ooh)
Get the boot

Boy, you can go 'head
And work on yourself another quick romance (romance)
A little too hot for me
You act like you've already got my number

Oh, I wish you quit tryin' to be?
Extra smooth, extra smooth (hey)
Extra cool, extra cute
Am I supposed to talk to you? Be your boo? (Be your boo, oh)
Don't come trying to be
Tryin' to be extra, extra, extra smooth
(See he want to be, see he want to be smooth)
Extra, extra, extra cool
(See he trying to be, see he trying to be cool)
I won't talk to you, won't be your boo
(Talk to you, won't be your boo)
Extra, extra, extra
Tryin' to be extra, extra, extra smooth

Tryin' to be extra, extra, extra smooth
(See he want to be, see he want to be smooth)
Extra, extra, extra cool
(See he trying to be, see he trying to be cool)
I won't talk to you, eon't be your boo
(Talk to you, won't be your boo)
Extra, extra, extra
Tryin' to be extra, extra, extra smooth

Tryin' to be extra, extra, extra smooth
(See he want to be, see he want to be smooth)
Extra, extra, extra cool
(See he trying to be, see he trying to be cool)
I won't talk to you, won't be your boo
(Talk to you, won't be your boo)
Extra, extra, extra
Tryin' to be extra, extra, extra smooth

Tryin' to be extra, extra, extra smooth
Extra, extra, extra cool
I won't talk to you, won't be your boo
Extra, extra, extra
Tryin' to be extra, extra, extra smooth

    She says "way too sure" for me- not 'way too short'.

    The whole song is about dudes coming at her acting like they all that. Be genuine, be yourself, that's what she's attracted to.

    Her story is completely sassy and funny. She’s telling the guy who is trying to holler at her to not because she’s not interested because of his height or maybe his corny antics. She’s not impressed. She is a tease and she’ll do you wrong and leave you in the friend zone. She finds men annoying and even more annoying when they're trying to talk to her. She’s fly, she’s cool and she’s a baddie. I love you Extra Smooth and I love you even more Aaliyah.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

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.

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/

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.
