Let’s Straighten It Out – Monica


[Monica:]
Sit yourself down boy and talk to me
Tell me what’s on your mind
Don’t keep on telling me everything’s okay
Cause if it was then you wouldn’t be crying
You been acting real funny when I see you lately
Sitting around poutin’ all day long
Now how in the world do you expect me to understand
When I not even know what’s wrong

[Chorus:]
Straighten it out, let’s straighten it out
Let’s straighten it out
([Monica:] Baby)
Let’s straighten it out
([Monica:] Out….)
Let’s straighten it out

[Usher:]
For the last few days when I saw you baby
Oh I admit something just wasn’t right
It’s so many things going through my head
I didn’t want to start another fight
But if your tired of people being bothered baby
In the world we’d be all alone
Instead of being apart of a problem baby
You and me otta be getting along, yeah….

[Chorus:]

Straighten it out, Let’s straighten it out
([Usher:] We need to straighten it out)
Let’s straighten it out

Street Symphony – Monica

There’s something that I wanna say
I feel a little out of place
But I need you to make that change
You promised, to keep me out of the rain
I love the cars and everything
The diamond rings but I loved you much more, baby

You said, that you were gonna stop when you
Had enough, you’d do what you had to do
Now you, like the profession you’ve made it for yourself
You said, you cared about me and you
Now all, you wanna do is hustle you
Gotta choose, whatcha gonna do and am I worth it to you baby

Never thought I’d be afraid to trust (to trust)
Somebody that I love so much
If I can get him out of the streets
Then he could come back to me
Now I see that there ain’t no “us”
Baby to me that’s a definite plus
If I can’t get you out of the streets
Then you don’t need to be with me

Do you love me like you say
Maybe you could get away
From the life of doin’ the wrong things
You promised
Don’t make me read about it babe
Think of me before I’m gone
Cause when I’m gone, it will be to late (oh yeah babe)

You said, that you were gonna stop when you
Had enough, you’d do what you had to do
Now you, like the profession you’ve made it for yourself (made it for yourself)
You said, you cared about me and you
Now all, you wanna do is hustle you (you you)
Gotta choose, whatcha gonna do when I’m not worth it to you baby

The job has taken over pain (The job’s taken over)

Cause you weren’t there for me (You werent there for me hehehe)

Catch Me – Monica

And where we’re you tonight?
My dress fit me so nice, my hair lookin so right
You’re nowhere to be found
I fluffed all the pillows, for me to lay with you
You’re making it so hard
When it should be easy, but you got it easy
Cuz you know I won’t leave
I do all I can, ya don’t understand…

I wanna fall in love, love
I wanna fall in love, whoa
I wanna fall in love
(catch me catch me catch me catch me)
But you gotta catch me
(catch me catch me catch me catch me)
Ohhhh
But you gotta catch me

You don’t answer your phone
And I’m only calling to see how ya doing
If you’re coming home
A little attention, is all that I’m asking
Cuz love should never hurt
As much as I want you, my heart’s always cryin
But I can’t cut you loose
I do all I can but you don’t understand

I wanna fall in love, that’s all I wanna do
I wanna fall in love, oh
I wanna fall in love
(catch me catch me catch me catch me)
But you gotta catch me
(catch me catch me catch me catch me)
Ohhhh

I Wrote This Song – Monica


[Intro]
I can’t believe he’s gone
Why’d you leave?
Sometimes it hurts so bad

[Verse I]
He’s the kind of guy that runs the street
But he treats me good
And he makes his dough illegally
That’s how he’s taking care of me
And I respect
The fact
That he’s chosen that life
But it keeps me up late at night
And I just can’t spend my time
Wondering where he’s at
Is he okay
Wanna be by his side
But I commit a crime
Bonny to his Clyde
And I don’t wanna live that way

[Chorus]
I love my baby so
But he’s not here no more
Hard for me to understand
So I wrote him this song
When I look him in his eyes
Knew I couldn’t change his mind
So I wrote this melody
And I’m saying sweet goodbye

[Verse II]
Though he promised that he could never put me in harm’s way
That it is something that he can’t control
Cause the game
Remains the same
And now he says he wants out of it
But he’s in too deep
And the only way that he would go is killing him or leaving me
So this is where I’m at
And it hurts so bad
That I had to choose
If I wanna live or die with you
I love my baby so
But he’s not here no more
Hard for me to understand
So I wrote him this song
When I looked him in his eyes
Knew I couldn’t change his mind
So I wrote him this melody
I’m singing sweet goodbye

READ  Too Hood - Monica

[Chorus:]

[Bridge:]
I tried to give him hope
And promised him my life
But I don’t know what made him want to leave this life
And as he went away
A tear fell from my eye
And there’no turning back…there’s only goodbye

[Chorus:]
I love my baby so
But he’s not here no more
Hard for me to understand
So I wrote him this song
When I looked him in his eyes
Knew I couldn’t change his mind
So I wrote him this melody
I’m singing sweet goodbye

[Repeat Chorus]
