    Population 4000 Minus 1

    I'm proud of my history, proud of my home
    But there comes a time in a young boy's life
    When he feels he's got to roam
    Daddy says I'm crazy, mama think I'm naive
    But if I don't do it now then I'll read more »

    Gone 'Til November (Pop Version)



    [Wyclef - Spoken]
    I wanna dedicate this song, Gone 'Til November...
    To all you ladies out there, crying all alone in your room
    And all you fellas, going down south...Not making it back...
    May the lord bless your soul, I love you girl

    [Wyclef - Chorus]
    Every time I make a run
    Girl you turn around and cry
    I ask myself, why oh why?
    See you must understand
    I can't work a nine to five
    so I'll be Gone...'Til November

    Said I'll be Gone 'Til November
    I'll be Gone 'Til November
    Yo, tell my girl yo I'll be Gone 'Til November
    I'll be Gone 'Til November
    I'll be Gone 'Til November
    Yo, tell my girl yo I'll be Gone 'Til November
    January, February, March, April, May...
    I see you crying, but girl I can't stay
    I'll be Gone 'Til November
    I'll be Gone 'Til November...
    And give a kiss to my mother...

    [Wyclef - Verse One]
    Girl I gotta leave, please don't cry
    When I come back, you know the limit's the sky
    I'll take you out to dinner, to your favorite spot
    Feed you an aphrodisiac just to get you hot
    Drive-by movies, by a cemetary
    If my corpse could talk then I would tell you I was sorry
    Lifestyles of The Rich & Famous,
    Some die with a name, some die nameless

    [Chorus 1x]

    [Wyclef - Verse Two]
    We had nothin'
    I had to do something
    So I'm Knocking On Heaven's Door, like I'm Bob Dylan
    Ever comtemplating, the charges I'm facing
    My new-born son, I hope I see his graduation
    Take him to the movies, by the cemetary
    If my corpse could talk then I would tell him, I was sorry
    Lifestyles of The Rich & Famous
    Some die with a name, some die nameless!

    The Dean And I

    Hum drum days
    And a hum drum ways

    Hey kids, let me tell you how I met your mom
    We were dancin' and romancin' at the Senior Prom
    It was no infatuation
    But a gradual graduation
    >From a boy to a man
    Let me tell you while I can
    The soda pop came free read more »

    Restless Youth

    (ian hunter)

    He’s much the same as anyone - he don’t do what he’s told
    He got hostile on his school report - and he leaves his mother cold
    His father owned a bakery - one day they found him hanged
    It ain’t good to be free in little italy - his son’s the leader of the gang read more »

    one lazy afternoon down Savannah way.
    They robbed a store and hightailed outa that town read more »

    Beauty School Drop Out

    Your story's sad to tell, a teenage ne'er-do-well
    Most mixed up non-delinquent on the block
    Your future's so unclear now, what's left of your career now
    Can't even get a trade-in on your smile read more »

    Otherside Of The Game



    whatcha gonna do when they come for you
    work ain't honest but it pays the bills
    what we gonna do when they come for you
    gave me the life that I came to live

    Do I really,
    want my baby
    Brother tell me what to do
    I know you got to get your hustle on
    So I pray
    I understand the game, sometimes
    And I love you strong, but,

    what you gonna do when they come for you
    work ain't honest but it pays the bills
    what we gonna do when they come for you
    God I can't stand life withoutcha

    Now, me and baby got this situation
    See brotha got this complex occupation
    And it ain't that he don't have education
    Cause I was right there at his graduation

    Now, I ain't sayin' that this life don't work
    But it's me and baby that he hurts
    Cause I tell him right
    He thinks I'm wrong
    But I love him strong

    He gave me the life that I came to live
    Gave me the song that I came to give
    Pressure on me
    But the seed had grown
    I can't make it on my own
    Summer came around and the flowers bloomed
    He became the sun
    I became the moon
    Precious gifts that we both received
    Or could this be make believe

    whatcha gonna do when they come for you
    work ain't honest but it pays the bills
    what we gonna do when they come for you
    gave me the life that I came to live

    Don't I know there's confusion
    God's gonna see us through
    Peace out to revolution
    But we paid though

    Don't you worry, I know there's confusion
    The work ain't honest but it pays the bills
    Don't you worry...
    Gave me the life that I came to live
    Don't you worry...
    The work ain't honest but it pays the bills
    Don't you worry... read more »

    Free

    I had it tough when I was just a little kid
    It didn’t matter what I thought
    It didn’t matter what I did
    I feel ? ? ? what I like right from the start
    It didn’t number on my head
    It could never touch my heart
    Cause I had just another imagination
    Just not to keep the faith
    Somehow I would think of what to do
    When I get lost in the momentary weakness of the motion
    Of the angels came around to help me through
    Life puts that’s changes
    Windblow pass pages
    All I see is I don’t need this

    A Lifetime



    Allie woke up 8AM
    Graduation day.
    Got into a car,
    And crashed along the way.

    When we arrived late to the wake,
    Stole the urn while they
    Looked away,
    And drove to the beach
    'Cause I knew you'd want it
    That way.

    And you were standing
    On the hood of the car
    Singing out loud
    When the sun came up.

    And I know I wasn't right,
    But it felt so good.
    And your mother didn't mind,
    Like I thought she would.
    And that REM song was playing
    In my mind.
    And three and a half minutes
    Felt like a lifetime

    It felt like a lifetime

    And you move like water
    I could drown in you.
    And I fell so deep once,
    Till you pulled me through

    You would tell me
    "No one is allowed to be so proud
    They never reach out
    When they're giving up."

    And I know I wasn't right,
    But it felt so good.
    And your mother didn't mind,
    Like I thought she would.
    And that REM song was playing
    In my mind.
    And three and a half minutes
    Felt like a lifetime

    Are you sitting in the lights?
    Or combing your hair again,
    And talking in rhymes?
    Are you sitting in the lights?

    When I got home, heard the phone,
    Your parents had arrived.
    And your dad set his jaw
    Your mom just smiled and sighed.

    But they left soon
    And I went to my room.
    Played that disc that you'd given me,
    And I shut my eyes
    Swear I could hear the sea.

    When we were standing
    On the hood of your car
    Singing out loud when the sun came up.

    And I know I wasn't right,
    But it felt so good.
    And your mother didn't mind,
    Like I thought she would.
    And that REM song was playing
    In my mind.
    And three and a half minutes,
    Three and a half minutes,

    Felt like a lifetime.
