Chorus

Let’s get it started

Let’s get it started

Let’s get it started

Let’s get it started

Let’s get it started

Let’s get it started

Let’s get it started if you want to praise Him then you better come on!

 

Verse

It’s been a long week and there’s still so much to do

It seems anxiety has got the best of you

You’ve worked your job

Taken care of your family too

You need to break free

Its time you flew the coop

 

Bridge

Well if you came to the house to (lift Him up)

Let me hear you say (oooh)

Well if you came to the party to (lift Him up)

Then let me hear you scream (oooh)

Let’s get it started if you want to praise Him then you better come on!

Chorus

 

Verse

I feel your plight

Know what you’re going through

Whether day or night

It’s time for your breakthrough

All strength is joy

Show the person next to you

Let’s spread God’s love

Like doing a brand new groove

 

Bridge

 

Chorus

Verse

Everybody wants some more

Everybody wants a big score

Everybody’s looking for an easy fix, yeah

Everybody knocks on that door

But I don’t wanna play the game

(I don’t wanna play the game)

So tell me am I going insane

‘Cause nobody likes to die

Nobody likes to cry

Why don’t they give You a try?

Chorus

I lose myself in what nots and the whats I need

And I find myself in You

The whats I have I want no more

‘Cause what I need is all found in You

It’s found in You

All found in you

Whoa

Found in You

 

Verse

I don’t wanna stand in the rain

(I don’t wanna stand in the rain)

I don’t wanna get drenched again

I need the sun in me to clear the clouds away

(Clear the clouds away)

I need some joy to ease my pain

I’m happy with the car I drive

I found a purpose to survive

I’m happy with my cons and pros

Content with how my hair grows

I just need Your love to stay alive

 

Chorus

 

I lose myself in what nots

Yeah, yeah, yeah x3

 

I lose myself in what nots

Then find myself in You!

Verse

Taught me how to love my wife

Not for a day but for my life

You taught me how to love those fools

Who despitefully use and abuse my cool

You taught me how to love the ones

That try to take advantage of the fact

That I’m saved

But they can’t and they’re mad

‘Cause they crave what I got

But guess what you can have it

All you gotta do is grab it

 

Chorus

You taught me how to walk, in love

You taught me how to speak in love

Taught me how to be in disagreement but love

You taught me how to be, in love

You taught me how to walk, in love

You taught me how to speak in love

Taught me how to be in disagreement but love

You taught me how to be, in love

 

Verse

You taught me how to be a man

One who understands what a man’s supposed to be

You taught me just how to play

All the moves that say I’m not down with OPP

Taught me how to close my eyes and to recognize

What’s best for my soul

When my flesh wants to roll

To her house and disrobe

And what’s next is some sex that connects, oh no

 

Chorus

Chorus

(I just want to)

Be a ray of sunshine in your life

Hold you tight, when you cry

Be a place of shelter, a place to hide

From the night I’ll be your light

 

Verse

Oh my sister I want to share the world with you

Oh my brother I want to give you love that’s true

When I look into your eyes I see someone who feels like I do

Someone to share the joy

Someone to ease the pain someone like you

 

Chorus x2

Verse

Oh my brother I really care for you

And oh my sister I’ll be there through and through

To laugh in times of happiness be your strength when sorrow comes

My brother I love you

Baby girl I love you too

 

Chorus

 

Bridge

Never alone I know it seems hard sometimes

But you don’t have to worry

Never alone I know it seems hard sometimes

But you don’t have to worry

 

Chorus x2

Verse

She’s everything I knew she’d be

(Soon as I signed up, He lined up)

The perfect one for me

It’s so amazing when I see her, get near her

We go together like a song and melody

So many times late at night, we kneel and recite this special prayer

(That we might keep it tight)

Knowing that all along, we can’t go wrong

Long as our hands are in his hands, we know it’s right

 

Chorus

She’s my Christian queen

She’s all I need, my everything

Day or night, on my mind

Spend a lifetime

Making her smile

She’s my Christian queen

All that and more, girl I adore

Mi amor, I’m so sure I love you

 

Verse

From the first time she caught my eye

It’s like an angel fell from the sky

She loves the Lord like I do (hey)

A perfect smile and personality too

She don’t have to worry ‘bout me leavin’, deceivin’

I know with her is where I’m supposed to be

That kind of love she can believe in, believe in

I tell you that’s what she’s getting from me

 

Chorus x2

 

Bridge

Rubies and diamonds can’t compare

(My queen yeah, yeah, yeah)

I give her my all even when I’m not there

(My queen yeah, yeah, yeah)

Oh there’s nothing she can’t do

(My queen yeah, yeah, yeah)

My Christian queen, I love you

She’s my Christian queen!

 

Chorus

Chorus

Keep holding, holding on

Hold on

 

As we journey through the celestial atmosphere

We enter in through your ear

So just sit back

And enjoy the ride

 

Verse

Are you ready for the sun to shine?

Ready for the moon?

Are you ready for the blessings that are coming really soon?

Are you ready for the victory?

Ready for the fall?

Are you ready for times happy or sad?

Ready for them all?

 

Pre-chorus

I see you giving up

Seems hard to over come

Relax and hold on

You keep your head up

Don’t you give up on God

Relax and hold onto your God

 

Verse

Are you ready for the pain?

Ready for the hurt?

Are you ready for the frown?

Are you ready for the joy?

Ready for the peace?

Ready to turn frowns upside down?

Are you ready for commitment to last for eternity?

Are you ready to be bound to Christ so He can set you free?

 

Pre-chorus

Chorus x2

 

Vamp

Holding on to your God

He’ll keep you through the storm

As long as you keep on

 

Verse

Are you ready for a change of pace?

Ready for something new?

Are you ready for the gift of life that’s been waiting on you?

Are you ready for a different way to think, walk, talk, and live?

I think you’re ready to give up your life so you can live

 

Pre-chorus

Vamp x3

Chorus

Verse

If you don’ told ‘em

That you ain’t going that way

If you don’ told them girls

That you aint getting’ freaky

If you don’ told your boys

That you ain’t looking for no cheap thrill

And you don told them hard heads

Your lips ain’t smoking on no kill

 

Chorus

I think you better leave

If they’re bringin’ you down

Gotta bounce the messin’ around

You gotta hold up, back back

Slow down, relax and

Leave

If they’re bringin’ you down, gotta

Bounce

The messin’ around

You gotta hold up, back back

Slow down, relax and

 

Verse

If you don’ told ‘em

That you ain’t up for playing games

And you don’ told ‘em

Don’t call you by nothing less than your name

And you don’ told ‘em

(You don told ‘em)

You don’ told ‘em

Though they claim that they have not heard

You don’ told ‘em that the only thing that’s for you to be spread is God word

 

Chorus

Bridge

I don’ broke free from those crabs in a bucket

Don’t care what you say about me and I love it

(Hey, ho, hey, ho) x2

This nut ain’t fell too far from the tree

I can be anything mama said I can be

(Hey, ho, hey, ho) x2

 

Aaaah, break free!

(Break free from the crabs on me)

Break, free, break free!

 

Chorus

Verse

Ooo you’re really something special

These brothers better recognize

If loving God means that you’re wrong

Then you don’t want to be right

‘Cause when I see you with your friends girl

At your school or at your job

I can’t help but admire

‘Cause your shining like a star!

 

Chorus

‘Cause you ain’t looking for no man to come around and affirm you

And ain’t no Adam or Zeke gonna just come around and get to know you

Even when the lights go down, He’s on her mind (Oh yeah)

Early when the sun rises up, He’s on her mind (oh yeah)

And I can tell when I talk to her, He’s on her mind

Church girl

Church girl

 

Verse

Ooo, ‘cause you don’t have to be shake shakin’ it in a mini skirt

Tryna flirt, Yeah

And you don’t have to be fake faking it for no man

So you can feel your worth

You told me that God’s your man

And if He can’t do it no one else can and I’m digging that

 

Chorus

 

Got a fine sense of humor

Carries herself with class

Church girl don’t stop

‘Cause what you have’s gon’ last

 

Vamp

‘Cause you can have the diamonds and pearls

‘Cause I wouldn’t trade the world for my church girls!

Verse

She looks at you through weeping eyes

Blinded by the scars of a broken heart

She wants the best for little man, or little mama

But she’s alone and don’t know where to start

He said he loved you

Said he’d keep you through the storm

But when the rain came tumbling down

“It’s not mine, I’m too young, you’re trying to trap me”

And now he simply can’t be found

Chorus

She’s broken to pieces

Her heart is broken

Its’ shattered

Her life is broken

I can’t believe it broken

Broken

She’s broken to pieces

Her heart is broken

Its’ shattered

Her life is broken

I can’t believe it broken

Broken

Verse

She gives all her dreams aside

Me and my sister, we come first instead

From ten to six she’s out all night

Then nine to five keeps a roof over our heads

Daddy called said he loves us (I look)

As a tear fell from her eye

I love my father with all my heart

But why’d he make my mother cry

 

Chorus

 

Bridge

Tell me daddy

What’s a mother supposed to do?

With a sixteen year old hard head who thinks he knows it all?

And tell me daddy

What’s my sister supposed to think?

About a man and the way he should treat his wife?

We miss you we need you

 

Chorus

Verse

It’s been 10 years

7 months

And 2 weeks

Since I’ve been free

And I’m still in love with You Lord

Still in love with You, You saved me

(I found You)

I love You

(Worship You)

Cause I’m still in love with You

 

Verse

I still love Your style

You have a way of way of making me smile

Like nobody else can

Let me embrace Your hand

I’ll listen to understand

I was a boy then You made me a man

You taught me how to trust again

A true definition of a friend

 

Pre-chorus

But I’ve been telling our business to everyone I know

And I won’t stop because it’s so good

Everyone needs to know

 

Chorus

Still (in love) x6

Still in love with you

Verse

I still get butterflies

Sometimes I just close my eyes

Reminisce on what you said

(Reminisce on what you did)

You loved me enough to die for me

Dying to get next to me

I know I didn’t notice at first

But thank You for my life’s new birth

Pre-chorus

 

Chorus

Still (in love) x6

Still in love with you

 

Vamp

I still can’t wait

To talk to You

And I still can’t wait

To walk with You

And I still can’t wait

To be in Your presence, I

Still cant wait, I, still cant wait, I… x3

 

Chorus

Verse 1

I’m talking ‘bout the girls, the sex, the phone

Calling me up, won’t leave me alone

Thought it would take forever for me to find out

Was digging my own hole but, I climbed out

Now though they love me

They can’t touch me, rush me,

I’m doing much better, trust me

Don’t worry ‘bout aids

Or getting clowned on Ricki Lake show

I’m doing my thing, so

 

Chorus

Took a mess and made a messenger

Told him to tell everybody ‘bout the things he’s found

Took a hoe and made him honorable

Lift him up so the world can see there is a way out

Took a mess and made a messenger

Told him to tell everybody ‘bout the things he’s found

Took a hoe and made him honorable

Lift him up so the world can see there is a way out

 

 

Verse 2

When I’m talking about a mess

Mess

I’m talking ‘bout me

And how He took the stressing and guessing and made a blessing

When I talk about a hoe it was me for sure

Took my indecent proposal made it honorable

I never knew I’d be a teacher or preacher or testify

But now you see me teaching and preaching about my life

And how it changed with Christ

And I ain’t taking nothing back

Rearranged my life

And I’m a tell it like that

 

Chorus

Verse 2

Chorus

Chorus

And we just dance, dance, dance

And you can too

Just keep your eyes on me

Enjoy the fruit of my feet

And we just dance, dance, dance

And you can too

Just keep your eyes on me and join the fruit of my feet

‘Cause we can, and you can, we all can dance x4

 

Verse

Y’all know

A party ain’t a party if everyone is scared to dance

Yo sister

What’s the purpose of the temple if you didn’t come to lift your hands?

Say brother, my opinion is

That you better get it while you have a chance

‘Cause you can sing a song

But it don’t compare to the meaning of dance

 

Pre-chorus

Watch us as we come to celebrate

Lifting up the Lord strong and mighty

Lift your heart, you’re not going crazy

Don’t stop

Get it, get it

Don’t stop

Get it, get it

Well are you gonna dance? (Yes I am)

Well are you gonna sing? (Ooo na na na na na)

Well are you gonna dance? (Yes I am)

Well then, do that thing

 

Chorus

Verse

Ooo, excitement’s getting hard for me to contain

I’m getting hyped off a song that keeps mentioning Your name

Good God

It’s funny how when you dance you forget all about your pain

So when you see me next time Ima be doing the same

 

Pre-chorus

Chorus

(Tre-9’s thoughts)

Bridge

I know you’re digging how we do it, you can do it mama

Just celebrate

I know you’re digging how we do it, you can do it papa

Just celebrate x2

I know you’re digging how we do it, you can do it mama

I know you’re digging how we do it you can

 

‘Cause we can, and you can, we all can dance!

Verse

I wanna be the one in your life

Day and night

Won’t you be my wife?

But you can’t seem to commit your time

I see you sittin’ all alone

Sittin’ by the phone

Waiting for him to call

Beggin’ for me to let him call

I don’t want to be a part time lover

To keep this thing that we have undercover

What more can I do to prove?

I’ve already given My life for you

At Calvary, yeah

 

Chorus

If you ask me how long I’ll stay

Forever and ever

Will my love ever fade away?

Never

If you ask me how long I’ll stay

Forever and ever

Will my love ever fade away?

Never

 

Verse

I wanna be the one at the park

After dark walking hand in hand

Sharing thoughts no one else can understand

And when you confide in me

Don’t worry about what was said

Being spread around work or church

‘Cause what you say is safe with me

Sometimes you treat me like a one night stand

Sometimes you use me ‘til you get a man

But I’m still waiting can’t you see

For all of your love you can trust me

 

Bridge

I wanna be all that you need

Your lover, friend, true homie

Just come and spend time with me

I can meet you at your point of need

I can be everything you dream about

You and your girls ever talk about

Let me your everything

Never will I leave
