LYRICS

Couples Skate
by Microphone Mike and Beatriz La Beatz
Buick Audra Music (BMI)

saw you at the movies at the mall
wearing Z. Cavariccis and all
thought that you moved last summer
friends told me that, total bummer

you signed my yearbook at the end of the year
with your number and “keep in touch,” so sincere
I thought about you nearly every single day
but we never got to know each other in that way
I used to catch your stare from across the room
every time I saw your face, my heart went “BOOM”

I just went out of town, to chill out and hang around
with my best friend, he’s so down and rad
I’m in your science class, this time I hope we pass
I’ll write you notes, so don’t be sad

how’d ya get your hair so nice?
you look so much cooler than that dude Vanilla Ice
when you pass me in the hall you smell so good
always looking like a cute boy should
if I sometimes look away, it’s cuz I’m shy
but you don’t have to worry, you’ve caught my eye
I’ll meet you at the skate rink Friday night
with my pink lip gloss and my skates laced tight
I hope that you’ll be there, please say that you’ll be there
I hope that you’ll be there, uh-huh

I’ll wear my favorite shirt, I just can’t wait to flirt
you in your mini-skirt, so fine
if the DJ calls “Couples Skate” and the sweet slow jam plays
I’ll hold your hand if you’ll hold mine

On The Realz
by Microphone Mike and Beatriz La Beatz
Buick Audra Music (BMI)

time has been passing us by and I’m right by your side
I wanna say that you’re mine, all mine
you call me up on the phone and say sweet things at night
I wanna get you alone, alone

I want the world to know our love’s made out of gold
a symbol of my affection

got to the jewelry store just before 8
to pick up our name plates
well, one’s for me, the other says “taken”
girl, you know that I ain’t fakin’
cuz you’re mine and I wanna let the world know
hold you tight, never ever ever let you go
wearing “Microphone Mike” around your neck

I’m yours, you’re mine
we’re finally together
I’ll take this as a token of the realz
on the realz

ooh, with your love on a chain that says, “I’m with Mic Mike”
it’s right there out on display for the world
now that you’re wearing my name, I'll hold my own head high
because it means Beatriz is your girl

I want the world to know our love’s made out of gold
a symbol of my affection

I’m yours, you’re mine
we’re finally together
I’ll take this as a token of the realz
on the realz

He Said She Said
by Microphone Mike and Beatriz La Beatz
Buick Audra Music (BMI)

lately I have been hearing things around the way
gettin’ twisted inside by what the people say
I gotta bring this to you before I go insane
tell me now – right now: what’s up with little-what's-her-name?

see, I don’t know what your friends been tellin’ you, let’s get this straight
your girls are hating, lemme me demonstrate
you’re the only one I see when I close my eyes
everything that you’ve been hearing is just straight-up lies

it’s a game of telephone
it’s a game that leaves you all alone
he said she said my baby’s creeping on the town (hey)
he said she said my baby, he’s been getting around (hey)

yeah there’s all this talk about me, but tell me what’s been goin’ on with you
my boys been telling me that been seein’ what you do
they seen you ‘round the town with what’s-his-name, that player guy?
and we both know, Mr. Player, he ain’t so shy

oh no you didn’t call my friend a player, now
you know that he’s nothing more, and we’re just hangin’ out
I’ve been so faithful to you ever since you came around
I can’t believe this is us that they’re all talkin’ ‘bout

hello?
hey girl, I saw Mic Mike rolling all alone on Saturday
oh my god, he’s totally gonna break Bea’s heart
where’s Beatriz always at?  she must be off with some guy
it’s too bad, they were so sweet in the beginning

it’s a game of telephone
it’s a game that leaves you all alone
he said she said my baby’s creeping on the town (hey)
he said she said my baby, he’s been getting around (hey)
it’s a game of telephone
it’s a game that leaves you all alone
he said she said my baby’s creeping on the town

Have You Ever
by Microphone Mike and Beatriz La Beatz
Buick Audra Music (BMI)

after all the years and tears, I love you still - girl, what can I say?
you don’t have to say a thing, I got you - I know
after all the talkin’ that’s been goin’ on, I still feel the same
you got me remembering, and now I’m wanting to go
back to where we first started
so slow, before our ways parted

even if I go away, I’m right here with you tonight
(please don’t go away, say you’ll stay here with me tonight)
I will love you anyway, you know that I love you right
(you always love me right, give me one more night)

have you ever had someone?
have you ever let someone go?
have you ever had to choose to walk a brand new road?

now that I’ve been with you, my life will never be the same
tell me that you won’t forget it, I know that I won’t
don’t wanna be with someone else and have to play that game
I can’t even think about it, and now I’m wanting to go
back to where we first started
so slow, before our ways parted

even if I go away, I’m right here with you tonight
(please don’t go away, say you’ll stay here with me tonight)
I will love you anyway, you know that I love you right
(you always love me right, give me one more night)

have you ever had someone?
have you ever let someone go?

Take Your Heart
by Microphone Mike and Beatriz La Beatz
Buick Audra Music (BMI)

oh, I’m about to make a change of life
but you are a part of me I can’t deny
whenever I think I am ready to really say goodbye
I stop, cuz it always makes me start to cry

so, how do we decide what’s right for us?
there’s no telling how the distance changes love
if I go on and leave you here, will we still hold on?
I’m scared that one of us will just give up

this is your time for change, this is your time to shine
don’t worry, girl, you’ll be just fine
your heart will be forever mine
go on and get ahead, most things are better left unsaid
staring at the ceiling late at night, alone in bed
there’s so much more to see, away from me
never wanna keep you from what you’re supposed to be
we’ll be together in the end of this
but I’ll still miss your smile... and your kiss

don’t let time take your heart
I’m near, though we’re apart
the stars that shine are yours and mine
I loved you from the start
don’t let time take your heart

maybe I’ll find my way back
(I’ll always be with you)

don’t let time take your heart
I’m near, though we’re apart
the stars that shine are yours and mine
I loved you from the start
don’t let time take your heart

Different Days
by Microphone Mike and Beatriz La Beatz
Buick Audra Music (BMI)

so here’s my day: I wake up and get it all done
and here’s my night: I go out and find me some fun
I think about him all the time
but not too much, cuz I know he’s not mine
I wonder what he does and if he has someone

now I’m out with my crew, doin' just what we do
dressed to the max, sit back and relax as I think about you
in the passenger seat, another night, another re-run
as I rinse and repeat (and repeat, and repeat)
there’s all these dolled-up little girlies
holding hands in groups of three and four
they’ve got no idea who they are – or what they’re looking for
but no, not me - what you get is what you see
we made each other what we are
I miss you, my shining star

in a way I like my freedom
in a way I do ok
but in way I miss my true love, a little more than I can say
funny how we’re so divided
funny how we give away the very thing we hold the dearest
funny how we’re having different days

I can hear it in your voice when we’re on the phone
I kinda get the feeling that you’re not alone
you’re not calling me back, but leaving me clues
am I hearing someone’s voice?  you got me confused

here we go, oh here we go again
I give you space, you fill it up with doubt
if you want to fight, then honey, leave me out
in love and friendship, all is fair tonight

in a way I like my freedom
in a way I do ok
but in way I miss my true love, a little more than I can say
funny how we’re so divided
funny how we give away the very thing we hold the dearest
funny how we’re having different days

Jet Stream
by Microphone Mike and Beatriz La Beatz
Buick Audra Music (BMI)

he is flying to me
I am trying to be
who I have become, not who I was
but logic don’t apply to the ways of love

will I want him?  will I not?
will I feel out of place in my own plot?
who has he become since I’ve been gone?
will it still feel the same after so long?

there used to be a time back in the day
not single thing that we wouldn’t say or do
we used to be as one
but now you split my heart in two
the jet stream, lots of miles in between
all those years you were my queen
your face, I have yet to replace
why can’t I give up this chase?

I only want you if you want me, baby
I’ll do whatever makes your heart go crazy
give me a signal, I’ll be waiting for a sign

love’s an airplane in the air
soaring over land and sea, so free of care
will it land here safely or pass by?
shooting like a star through my night sky

touch-down, rebound
when you’re in the room I can’t hear a sound
except our heartbeats; I’m complete
seven-hundred miles an hour
devour cities in a glance
can’t wait to see you, even if this is our last chance
sit back and listen to the sound of this engine’s buzz
let’s start again, this time – let’s keep it like it was
I know you’re changing, and I think I know just where you stand
I count the minutes waiting for this plane to land

I only want you if you want me, baby
I’ll do whatever makes your heart go crazy
give me a signal, I’ll be waiting for a sign
don’t be a stranger, let your hands remember
just ask me to, and honey, I’ll surrender
give me a signal, I’ll be waiting for the time

just think twice if you have to go
just be nice if the answer’s no
I’ll be here, waiting at the door
I’ll be here if you’re wanting more

I only want you if you want me, baby
I’ll do whatever makes your heart go crazy
give me a signal, I’ll be waiting for a sign
don’t be a stranger, let your hands remember
just ask me to, and honey, I’ll surrender
give me a signal, I’ll be waiting for the time

Like A Miami Sidewalk
by Microphone Mike and Beatriz La Beatz
Buick Audra Music (BMI)

gimme-gimme-gimme-gimme, come on, gimme what you got
come on baby, make it hot
like a Miami sidewalk
if you’re gonna - if you’re gonna, yeah, if you’re gonna talk the talk
then you better go and walk the walk
I said, you better walk the walk

kiss me more, I do adore you
bessame amor

hey I’m outside, are you ready to go?
just about, tryin’ to make myself pretty, you know?
I’ve got a million things that I’m dying to do
but I don’t care about that, just as long as I’m with you
I’m almost to the door and I can feel my heart
can’t wait to be all wrapped up in the trouble we start
I like where this is goin’, so that’s a start
it’s been too long since we’ve been apart
maybe it’s good, ‘cuz we’re all revved up
get your ass outside, I’m trying to pick you up
hold on now, I think I’m worth the wait
I can’t wait another minute – let’s start this date

gimme-gimme-gimme-gimme, come on, gimme what you got
come on baby, make it hot
like a Miami sidewalk
if you’re gonna - if you’re gonna, yeah, if you’re gonna talk the talk
then you better go and walk the walk
I said, you better walk the walk

kiss me more, I do adore you
bessame amor

I want dancing
let me shake you down
I want bright lights
let’s go paint the town
I want music
let me be your sound
but mostly I want you
I want you

up in the club and we’re in the zone
but all I can think about’s getting you home
how fast can you drive and where are the keys?
I want you as much as you say you want me
my imagination’s got no limits
tell me what you want, let’s get down with it
what I want, you ask?  well, let me see...
I thought I told you, boy
you better find those keys

gimme-gimme-gimme-gimme, come on, gimme what you got
come on baby, make it hot
like a Miami sidewalk
if you’re gonna - if you’re gonna, yeah, if you’re gonna talk the talk
then you better go and walk the walk
I said, you better walk the walk

He Loves Me, Loves Me Not
by Microphone Mike and Beatriz La Beatz
Buick Audra Music (BMI)

oh, the morning after breeds disaster
what did we expect?
oh, the morning after, it’s time to reflect
all the questions come with answers no one wants to hear
oh, the morning after
how did we get here?

language doesn’t lay between lovers
courage can’t be found outside the covers
it’s all a mess, like last night’s dress
I’m in too deep

he loves me, loves me not
oh-oh-oh-oh
and I love him, love him not
oh-oh-oh-oh
it’s all the same, a childish game
oh-oh-oh-oh
he loves me, loves me not

all this time I left him waiting
now he’s finally here
all this time, and now I’m fighting to hold back the tears
there’s one more night to go, before he heads back home
and he won’t look me in the eye
I’ve got to make it through, maybe I always knew
no, I can’t let him see me cry

language doesn’t lay between lovers
courage can’t be found outside the covers
it’s all a mess, like last night’s dress
I’m in too deep

he loves me, loves me not
oh-oh-oh-oh
and I love him, love him not
oh-oh-oh-oh
it’s all the same, a childish game
oh-oh-oh-oh
he loves me, loves me not

language doesn’t lay between lovers
courage can’t be found outside the covers
it’s all a mess, like last night’s dress
I’m in too deep

Heartache Intervention
by Microphone Mike and Beatriz La Beatz
Buick Audra Music (BMI)

it’s about time we get down to truth
I’ve waited all night just to talk to you
am I being too dramatic?
have I got I got you in a panic?
I’m confused

damn right, dramatic... problematic
always some kinda ghost up in your attic
it’s getting to the point that we need to face our fears
and I’m pretty damn sure you don’t want me here
I’ll disappear, I’ll grab another beer
and when I see you next, you can come and stand near
we can talk about the things that made it all fall apart
or we can talk about both of our broken hearts

sometimes black will fade to white
what once was wrong can turn to right
nothing’s forever anymore
nothing’s forever mine and yours

so there it is, you finally spoke your mind
you seem so willing to leave this all behind
now that I have your attention
I need heartache intervention
is this goodbye?

I'd never say goodbye – it’s you and I forever
the problem still remains: what to do when we’re together
whatever we decide, between yours and mine
I find it hard to hide the love I have inside
for all the things we’ve ever done and all the things we’ll ever be
it’s crazy how much of you is buried deep inside of me
in everything I do, there’s still a little piece of you
I’ll carry with me to my death, until my last breath

sometimes black will fade to white
what once was wrong can turn to right
nothing’s forever anymore
nothing’s forever mine and yours
daylight darkens into night
you say you won’t, but then you might
nothing’s forever anymore
nothing’s forever mine and yours
(baby, goodbye... I'm letting you go)

Microphone Love
by Microphone Mike and Beatriz La Beatz
Buick Audra Music (BMI)

my first affair with a microphone was with a Soundelux
I borrowed it from a friend of mine 'cuz they cost a thousand bucks
that U195 was mine on every single track
eventually that sad day came when I had to give it back

oh my, from condenser to directional
my transducer is perfectional
I find my sweetest heaven
when I use my magic SM7

I love my microphone
it's microphone love

the first microphone that I ever owned was no-name SM58
I bought it at the strip mall RadioShack, way back
'88 was the year, to be exact
I'd sing into that microphone loud as hell, no one home
stars in my eyes, made me realize I'd never compromise...
until the day that I die
recording into a Panasonic boombox
coming up with raps in my underwear and socks
couldn't help thinkin' how it all would be
when people listened to my rhymes and they all jocked me
my microphone love is here to stay
I wouldn't be the way I am without it anyway
when I talk into it now, put these words in motion
'cuz all my raps are like love potion

oh my, from condenser to directional
my transducer is perfectional
I find my sweetest heaven
when I use my magic SM7

I love my microphone
it's microphone love
