Track Name: Can't Help It
I'm all up in those right kinds of wrongs I've done a lot of things folk might regret!
I'm knee deep in all those good kinds of bad that can make a man lose all respect!
I missed my golden age I was drinking from the cradle right thru to the crypt!
I'm always last man standing if you ask me how I got so low, I slipped!

I lost my money
I lost my car
My girl went with them
I went too far
It's plain to see
Where it all went wrong
Everyone knows
I can't help it!

Let me tell yuh, a brother on the street ask you "what's up with that Stevie C he swear he nice" you tell him "he don't swear he nice, he knows he's nice"

I don't wear camel hair, leather belt, dine on locusts and wild honey!
When there's nothing before me but thang, baby you know where I'll be spending my money!
I ain't no ratfink lowlife coward, if you offer you know I'm gonna take it!
Baby leave your heart anywhere near me and you know I'm just gonna break it!

I lost my money
I lost my car
My girl went with them
I went too far
It's plain to see
Where it all went wrong
Everyone knows
I can't help it!
Track Name: Scandalous
I was feeling kind of Monday even though the joint was jumping at the weekend
When this sweet young sugar come bumping up beside me said "what's your name?"
Well she kicked off her shoes just to feel that groove, man she could move
She said "you better get it together 'cuz I won't forever for your groove"

"You wanna get on down to one song? Baby I wanna barefoot it all night long, you got to try an keep it up"

I said "I bet you've never met a cat who ever made you sweat like this before?"
And then I moved on right up and showed her I could tighten up on the floor
She said "I dig your style it's been a while since I could say that"
"But just because you ride the pony doesn't show me how long you'll last"

"You wanna get on down to one song? Baby I wanna barefoot it all night long, you got to try an keep it up"

Man it sure was a groove this time!

Put some weight on it!
Come on get on your feet!
You sure make me nervous when you're in your seat!
Kick off them shoes and get soulful
'Cuz baby I'll be barefooting all week!
Track Name: Crotchless
Well girl I gotta come clean
I've been living a lie
I treated you so bad
I treated you like an alibi

Is that messed up?
Is that wrong?
I spent the past 5 years just hiding these kicks
But they were right on my doorstep all along

I was outta that door
When your boss stopped by
I thought you were an office girl
But he said you'd left you leather, whips and chains behind

Is that messed up? No!
Is that wrong?
I spent the past 5 years just looking for kicks
And they were right on my doorstep all along

Does it come in crotchless?
Will you dance for free?
Will you dance for me?

Come on treat me like a dog
Come on dig in those heels
And now we've finally got a real connection
I want you to show me how you really feel

Is that messed up?
Is that wrong?
I spent the past 5 years hiding from these kicks
And they were right on my doorstep all along

Does it come in crotchless?
Will you dance for free?
Will you dance for me?
Does it come in crotchless?
Will you come for free?
Will you comefor me?
Track Name: Main Man
When it comes right to the pinch
Baby i'll take every inch
As long as you swear to me I'll always be your main man
If you walk on thru that door
Baby I'll crawl on my hands and knees across the floor
As long as you swear to me I'll always be your main man

When it comes right to the crunch
Baby I will kick and punch
As long as you swear to me I'll always be your main man
And if it comes to needing proof
Baby I will raise that roof
As long as you swear to me I'll always be your main man
Track Name: Trick Baby
Trick baby
I see right thru your skin
All doused in sin
Trick baby
I see the colour of your lies
Same colour as mine
Trick Baby
I know it's hard
But I'll see it thru
Trick baby
I understand your pain
I feel it too

Trick baby
Don't you hide from me
I understand
Trick baby
I know just where you've been
'Cuz I searched all over this land, and I have found
Yes it can get tough out here, we all got to make a living
Baby I got my own thing too
Trick baby
Baby we were built for better things
Me and you

You know you're almost gone
You've been running much too long
You know you're almost gone but I'm right beside you
You know you're almost gone
When you're right they still say you're wrong
you know you're almost gone but baby I still love you
Track Name: Jimmy's Corner
If I could only make you understand
I'm your one and only sure shot other man
If I could only maybe make you see
Holidays are meant for you weekends meant for me

If I could only maybe understand
Why you wanna crush my hand
If I could only maybe make you see
I don't wanna mess with you, just don't mess with me

If you're hearing a noise it's just Jimmy and the boys
I'm gonna get one more then I'm gonna hit the door
Track Name: Time
You and I should stop wasting time, get together
The days we have are all fading fast to whenever
I've been told that you run hot and cold like the weather
but I can't forget there is no regret where there's pleasure

Time is tight enough without waiting for you

Do you get your kicks by watching time tick out on your plans
My summer love now wears winter gloves on her cold hands
I don't know should I come or go out of this land
So I will get gone at least I'll move on from this quicksand

Time is tight enough without waiting for you
Track Name: Do The Hospital
Baby!
Do the Broken Spine!
Baby!
Do the Broken Spine!
Get your ass on the dancefloor I see that you are doing fine!
Baby!
Do the Broken Spine!

Baby!
Do the broken neck!
Baby!
Do the broken neck!
It's only 12:30 and we haven't even got started yet!
Baby!
Do the broken neck!

Baby!
Do the broken foot!
Baby!
Do the broken foot!
I got my ass in a trap and I've done got nowhere to look!
Baby!
Do the broken foot!
Track Name: Quarter Love
Your loving ain't no good in quarters baby
I need it each and every day
And if I don't get all of your sweet loving child
This unfulfilled boy might fade away

I want it
All of your loving baby
I want it
All of your loving child
This quarter love ain't no good for me, no

I went back home to my mother
To see if I could warm my soul
She said "son, you know just what your problem is"
"without your woman you can never be whole"

I want it
All of your loving child, bring it to me
I want it
All of your loving child
Quarter love ain't no good for me

Bring me all of that loving
I want your loving
I need your loving
Don't want no quarter love
Don't want no half love
I need all your sweet love
All your love!

I want it
All of your loving baby
I want it
All of your loving child
Quarter love ain't no good for me

Quarter love's no good for me
Track Name: Open Your Arms
It's been a long time since I walked out on you
I thought I had to do all those things a boy has to do
We were just kids then and now I find
All these years passed and I still can't get you off of my mind

Time is wasted
Wasted so many years
And I've cried now
I've cried so many tears
If I see you will you push me away or open your arms

I've seen so many broken hearts everywhere I go
That's why I've got to find you, get back our happy home
I'm not scared of how I feel if I see you I'll be sure
I'm just so scared baby I don't know how to love anymore

Time is wasted
Wasted so many years
And I've cried now
I've cried so many tears
If I see you will you push me away or open your arms
Track Name: Keep on, Right on
I can't get no sleep now
And it's all because of you
I can't get no sleep now
And it's 25 by 2
Your attitude has got me baby
Your natural just drives me crazy
I can't get no sleep now
And it's all because of you

I can't get no sleep now
And it's creeping up on 3
I can't get no sleep now
Oh baby what is wrong with me?
She said

"You got to keep on with the right on"
"You got to keep on with the right on"

Well I can't get no sleep now
And it's coming up on 4
I dream of calling 'round your place baby
Knocking on your door
But I have got to

Keep on with the right on
I got to keep on with the right on
Keep on with the right on
I got to keep on with the right on

Well I can't get no sleep now
And it's 25 on 6
I call your number and you pick up, I said
"Baby I need my fix"
She said "just keep your mind on your game now baby"
"You know I'm here and I'm your lady"
"You got to get it together now, you gotta, you gotta"

Keep on
With the right on
