FIGHT THE FEELING (Random Recipe) i can't fight the feeling you know the one when you've got that something that i have always wanted i can't fight this feeling you know the one when you've got that someone that i have always wanted Words that you say, things that you do A part of me is envying you Lately I’ve been obsessed, with your ways, they’re so special You’ve got this touch, this magic in you Guess I Really can't get enough, Never can't get enough, No can’t get enough right now I can’t get enough i can't fight the feeling you know the one when you've got that something that i have always wanted i can't fight the feeling you know the one when you've got that someone that i have always wanted Now that I’ve said, these things to you Will you even notice there’s a shine in you maybe You’re like a magnet but you can’t feel attraction You don’t care about attention it’s your secret weapon Guess I Really can't get enough, Never can't get enough, No can’t get enough right now I can’t get enough you vivify like a fruitfly you give to the forgotten each a 2nd life people call it rotten you say funghi man i wish i had a pair of those eyes my dad told me "fab, at least you're not blind! look at the grass it's green on this side eh!" you know you want it but you don't need it and all that extra it's all greed eh! i wanted to say i like things my way but bae i wont lie i feel envy inside and it's so hard to hide ya this ain't my style like faking a smile i'm happy to meet you i'm happy to greet you but i just wanna be you i can't fight the feeling you know the one when you've got that something that i have always wanted i can't fight the feeling you know the one when you've got that someone that i have always wanted

MMXVIII featuring Giselle Numba One, Heartstreets & Tali Taliwah (Lyrics: Random Recipe, Giselle Numba One, Heartsteets, Tali Taliwah / Music: Random Recipe and Marie-Pierre Arthur) Oh, what a dream it’s been Who, who would’ve thought we’d be Standing here After all these years Strong but humble despite our fears Despite all our tears This song carry’s a smile 3 brains 3 vibes 1 livin' in the day, 2 livin' at night (with a) plan to conquer the world tough for an asian & 2 front girls (but a) shining star lit us right took us on a path that wasn't quite our type ('til we) freestyled in the street GiselleNumbaOne walked passed our beat like -"what’s up ladies! Gotta come do this in a bar full of peeps, once you all sing their knees will get weak, gonna slay everyone at RAP MAUDIT"- uh Franster got hyped grabbed me by the hand as we began to write Lack of Sleep cuz we rhymed all night Candy on our Lips and Something On Our Minds joints in our mouths and chairs reclined making your heads turn quicker than a dime never on time but young & primed killed that open mic yeag We Saw the Sign hot steppin, we were youngin' we would poke and toke and joke but we would listen we were missin' cuz we were livin' but we would catch it up on stage we were rippin' & u sippin', we trippin' singing in your face Say My Name in the kitchen thinkin' about the next place we cravin' to be pimpin' she thinkin' about the waitress, all the love she tippin' before you knew it, mom was flippin' seeing my face in toilet cabins while she pissin' my daughters a poet, get her up on Ellen But we were just starters like prosciutto & melon thank heaven, she chillin' chillin', chillin' like a villain Women with a vision Liu Kong babysittin' thinking we the type of trio to be spinning from your ceiling fan ceiling, ceiling, Celine Martinez I'm passin' down the flame little sistas can you feel it? Yes we can yes we can We can feel it and Understand that youth is just a feeling And here we stand Heartstreets for the love of it Always thought we’d stop when we’d become adults Hard to visualize being a mother caught up in this lifestyle misunderstood "wow you’re style is so good why aren’t you trying in hollywood" Dude, all we need for our lives to be good; feeling inspired and making you dance, family, friends and stage to pretend We still kids inside this inner youth we defend. Now we addicts can’t lie, the magical smiles of masses' madness it'll get you high Nah, I’m hooked I can’t lie this drug is my life now who would deny this fine line of work now Trust me now baby it ain’t so easy far from home and from the ones you love now Hotels are cheap, so little sleep, 2 watches on my sleeves coz I’m always flying Drinking and all, giving it all, night after night coz they paid to see you So we play and miss you, hate to kiss you night after night on a screen or Facebook So I stop and think of the ladies MC mothers with families, tell me please Tali jeez, How you do it lady how you do it baby how you do it

STRAWBERRY DAIQUIRI (Lyrics: Random Recipe / Music: Random Recipe and Marie-Pierre Arthur) It’s taking me Taking me Taking me so long To finally finally Move, move along I can see I can see I’m better on my own Yet I’m still hopelessly hopelessly At times holding on Your jealousy, jealousy Was a thing that just went on And you would carelessly carelessly Kiss me when you’d wronged But you’re like a drug to me, drug to me Can’t seem to carry on When you took a little piece of me, piece of me Got stuck with a broken heart Say are you ever gonna love Ever gonna love again Bet you can’t get enough Oh oh oh Say, if you ever wanna love Really wanna love again Baby I’ma wish you luck Oh oh oh How many nights should i cry Tears should i wipe Hiw many fights do i fight Before giving it up yo Before giving you up yo All of this passion is real It shocks like an eel But how many cards should i deal Before calling it quits yo I'm about to throw in the mitts yo But can you put out a burnin' flame Fry this love with some oil in a burnin' pan Pacin' back and forth Am i going or stayin? But i can handle it cuz b*tch has got game Ya i'm sayin' I'm addicted to this pain Melty like white chocolate under the rain Can't get enough of it like Barry White's fame But never ever say "never" to love again Say are you ever gonna love Ever gonna love again Bet you can’t get enough Oh oh oh Say, if you ever wanna love Really wanna love again Baby I’ma wish you luck Oh oh oh

HEY BOY featuring Sunny Moonshine (Lyrics: Random Recipe and Sunny Moonshine / Music : Random Recipe) I’ve been hearing ‘bout chicks sucking dicks and shit since I was six years old On TV, magazines in movies all generating bricks of gold Kindergarten age, too young to gauge, how much was staged of all the sex they showed I think it’s sage to turn a page on the golden age of the way our body's sold "bitch gotta show tits and if you really wanna lover better blow dicks,” I’m not an ornament, I’m a monument, like the woman on freaking 20 dollar bill, so honor it, and it really kills me that you think I’d ever wanna be a princess not even a queen, and I guess I’ve ever since then hated Halloween, boy you ready for a glimpse of society I dream of Hey boy, better wipe that grin off your face if you Wanna make sure, that I keep a place safe for you in this dream world, where a pendulum swings and reverses things making This grand world not a man’s world anymore liar liar pants on fire you know you ain't looking good shit! you might as well get fired we kinda tired feeling uninspired penny wishin' roles be flippin' we'd be admired so move aside time to take a hike put an end to this world forever runned by guys surrender to your stife see it through her eyes things will not get worse if you just let us ladies rise Yeah after all, we do give you life it's been 10 million days n nights it's time to share these rights then on each other we'll rely and we'll combine the coolest shit you've ever seen in order to survive You don’t like the smell of bras burning We don’t like you selling short our earnings You don’t like our body hair growing We don’t like your creepy ass groping You can hold the door as we march through Or you can be doormat we’ll march over you Don’t try to lock the door n lock us in though Coz we can always flo through the window Hey boy, better wipe that grin off your face if you Wanna make sure, that I keep a place safe for you in this dream world, where a pendulum swings and reverses things making This grand world not a man’s world anymore You don't believe I'm really gonna kill it I spell it out and slow it down for ignorance So tired of you acting like I don't belong I've had enough pretending like Surrendering like there's nothing wrong (I've had enough pretending like there's nothing wrong Said I know I'm tough, now you're acting like I don't belong) So I call your bluff Say "it's so funny why's she got a thorn in her side" Soon as I play rough "like Sun, like Sun you know I always been on your side" I don't wanna have to prove it I don't mind you keep on snoozin'

OUT OF THE SKY (Lyrics: Random Recipe / Music : Random Recipe and Marie-Pierre Arthur) She takes the sidewalk you walk on, and turns it into a stage Just like a catwalk to walk on, these streets are calling her name Night socialite under neons, her light is bright like the day Coz she takes the sidewalk you walk on, and turns it into a stage Can’t fit her into a box no, she has no color, shape Dressed like a goddess she flawless, pulls off a turtleneck She dances moves that are new to you, she’s like a discotheque Can’t fit her into a box no, she’d turn it into a stage She said Damn, gimme fireworks so I can admire Up in the sky, up in the sky Bam, like a rocket flying higher and higher Out of the sky, out of the sky Damn, gimme fireworks so I can admire Up in the sky, up in the sky Bam, like a rocket flying higher and higher Out of the sky, out of the sky I told myself once I told myself twice Fitting in a little box don't make me feel right Being labeled under rock don't make me feel light Bam bam baby Book me on the next flight My cameleon game's Under cameleon rain You just make me wanna drain All my name tags I gag & gag at your closed minds & I burn the baggies of your blurred lines So we tell you once cuz we being nice And i tell you twice to your eyes See the tides we ride don't devide us They just keepin' the vibe so alive Fresh ideas, breeze through the trees/trees Seb Oak has his name dropped for life/life Will Kelly in 20-18 got his, karaoke rapper's delight! Damn, gimme fireworks so I can admire Up in the sky, up in the sky Bam, like a rocket flying higher and higher Out of the sky, out of the sky Damn, gimme fireworks so I can admire Up in the sky, up in the sky Bam, like a rocket flying higher and higher Out of the sky, out of the sky
