Betty Wright & The Roots - Old Songs Lyrics

Old songs, old songs
Old records, and old memories
8 tracks, takin' it back
to, them old songs, olllld strong songs

[Verse One: Betty Wright]
When you're 35 or 40
and you chillin wit yo' shawty
Whatchu gon' listen to? Whatchu gon' listen to
if you ain't making nothin new?
If ya wanna just sample
Well Im tellin you, ya gamble
You ain't even writing one strong song
You aint even writing nothing to hold on
Late at night you wanna watch TV
Lean back and play a lil' Stevie (Stevie)
Play the music, play the music
Then you'll know why I'm talkin 'bout the


[Verse Two: Betty Wright]
When you get a little older
and your nights get a little bit colder
Whatcha gon' cuddle to? Whatcha gon' cuddle to?
Well it must be misty blue
Tell me what you got on yo' menu
Serve it up, I know that it's in you
Serve it up, serve it up
Serve it up serve it up serve it up
Listen to the music that made you
Tune in to what yo' mama played ya
Time to celebrate, time to create before, it's too late
Oh, go to your favorite place (Go to your favorite place)
Speakers bumpin, bumpin that bass (Speakers bumpin that bass)
Slow dance and what do they play?
Betty and Teddy all up in yo' face!


[Rap verse: Betty Wright]
I must admit yo' beats got fatter
But add subject matter on subjects that matter...
Cause it matters, yeah it matters...

[Outro: Betty Wright]
{*The chorus is sung in background until the end of the song*}
Patti, Gladys, Chaka Khan, Prince
And Kelly, and Kelly, and Kelly, and Kelly...
Mary Mary, you blossom like cherries, I've seen your garden grow
Hey, Erykah, little sista
I'm feelin ya, Badu, Badu Badu and..
Angie, C'MON Stone! Keep on writin and singin dem strong songs, ohh
India.Arie, keep singin and playin for me
Talk about that sweet tea and your sweetie
Just, keep singing those songs
Raheem and Jaheim and The-Dream and the whole team
Just take me on back to those STRONG songs
Joe and Mario and Ne-Yo and ohhh
Keep on writing and singing them strong songs
Just keep on listenin to Marvin, Aretha, The Isleys and them O'Jays
So you'll know what to say and you'll know what to play
