Dorothy Dandridge Eyes (Feat. Esperanza Spalding) – Janelle Monae

Lirik lagu: Dorothy Dandridge Eyes (Feat. Esperanza Spalding)

[Verse 1:]
Looking out the corner of her eye
As she sits alone and drinks her wine
Every man just wants to pass her by
In hopes that he can catch her eye
That glow that’s in her eye
Gives you visions in your mind
She’s from another space and time
That’s when you’ll know you’re hypnotized
Her intoxicating will not be denied
And when you touch her glove
She then becomes your drug
You fall so deep in love with the girl

[Chorus:]
It’s too late you’re hypnotized
She’s got Dorothy Dandridge eyes
And you love her, you love her, you love her, you love that girl
It’s too late you’re hypnotized
She’s got Dorothy Dandridge eyes
And you love her, you love that girl

[Verse 2 (Esperanza Spalding):]
Like a rare Picasso or Monet
The kind of beauty studied every day
Every woman wants her grace and style
But no one can replicate her smile
That glow that’s in her eyes
Gives you visions in your mind
She’s from another space and time
That’s when you’ll know you’re hypnotized
And her intoxicating will not be denied
And when you touch her glove
She then becomes your drug
You fall so deep in love with the girl

[Chorus:]
It’s too late you’re hypnotized
She’s got Dorothy Dandridge eyes
And you love her, you love her, you love her, you love that girl
It’s too late you’re hypnotized
She’s got Dorothy Dandridge eyes
And you love her, you love that girl

[Poem:]
In your eyes we see the tiny white snowcaps of mountains
The purple glow of distant stars
The blue shine of black metal
Red rose petals falling slowly through the sunny air

Suite IV: Electric Overture – Janelle Monae

Lirik lagu: Suite IV: Electric Overture

She has arrived!
Her crown
Has a story
14 soldiers marching round and round her
I don’t wanna be slave again!
No I don’t wanna be slave!
I’m electric girl
From electric world
And I only want to bring you light.

Heroes – Janelle Monae

I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can beat them, just for one day
We can be Heroes, just for one day

And you, you can be mean
And I, I’ll drink all the time
‘Cause we’re lovers, and that is a fact
Yes we’re lovers, and that is that

Though nothing, will keep us together
We could steal time,
just for one day
We can be Heroes, for ever and ever
What d’you say?

I, I wish you could swim
Like the dolphins, like dolphins can swim
Though nothing,
nothing will keep us together
We can beat them, for ever and ever
Oh we can be Heroes,
just for one day

I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can be Heroes, just for one day
We can be us, just for one day

I, I can remember (I remember)
Standing, by the wall (by the wall)
And the guns shot above our heads
(over our heads)
And we kissed,
as though nothing could fall
(nothing could fall)
And the shame was on the other side
Oh we can beat them, for ever and ever
Then we could be Heroes,
just for one day

We can be Heroes
We can be Heroes
We can be Heroes
Just for one day
We can be Heroes

We’re nothing, and nothing will help us
Maybe we’re lying,
then you better not stay
But we could be safer,
just for one day

Wondaland – Janelle Monae

Early late at night
I wander off into a land
You can go, but you mustn’t tell a soul
There’s a world inside

Where dreamers meet each other
Once you go it’s hard to come back
Let me paint your canvas as you dance

Dance in the trees
Paint mysteries
The magnificent droid plays there
Your magic mind
Makes love to mine
I think I’m in love, angel

Take me back to Wondaland
I gotta get back to Wondaland
Take me back to Wondaland
I think me left me underpants

The grass grows inside
The music floats you gently on your toes
Touch the nose, he’ll change our clothes to tuxedos
Don’t freak and hide
I’ll be your secret santa, do you mind?
Don’t resist
The fairygods will have a fit
We should dance

Dance in the trees
Paint mysteries
The magnificent droid plays there
Your magic mind
Makes love to mine
I think I’m in love, angel

Take me back to Wondaland
I gotta get back to Wondaland
Take me back to Wondaland
I think me left me underpants

This is your land
This is my land
We belong here
Stay the night
I am so inspired
You touched my wires
My supernova shining bright

Take me back to Wondaland
I gotta get back to Wondaland
Take me back to Wondaland
I think me left me underpants
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
