Track Name: Diamond Ring
Well the temperature’s rising I can feel the heat,
Got 100 people asking babe, I’m down on my knees.
When the pressure is on there’s nothing left to do,
No time to stand around and hold hands with you.

It’s a stupid situation I have found myself in,
All this perspiration ‘bout a bit of bling!
My baby wants a diamond ring, or we’re through!

You got an obsession with another man,
Well, I’m trying the best I can.
But there’s no way that I can match his moves,
I’m struggling to keep hold of you.

It’s a stupid situation I have found myself in,
All this perspiration ‘bout a bit of bling!
My baby wants a diamond ring, or we’re through

Well I can tell this is the end of me,
Worked my fingers to the bone now I’m begging please.
This other man can’t love you like I can,
He wont ever love you or hold you in his hands.

It’s a stupid situation I have found myself in,
All this perspiration ‘bout a bit of bling!
My baby says she wants a diamond ring,
My baby wants a diamond ring, but we’re through.
Track Name: 2 Plus 2
Allow me to explain, it wont take very long,
By the end you’ll never go wrong.
I’m gonna make it basic so everyone can make it,
It’s as simple as this.

Well there’s something strange in the water today,
I’ve heard that there’s a full moon.
But you don’t have to be crazy baby,
To know what I feel for you.

Allow me to explain, it wont take very long,
By the end you’ll never go wrong.
I’m gonna make it basic so everyone can make it,
It’s simple.

2 plus 2 the way that I love you.
It’s as simple as 2 plus 2, the way that I love you.

I’ve shared my little secret and I swear to you,
Every bit of it’s true.
You drive me crazy baby here’s the situation,
I’m gonna show you the proof.

Allow me to explain, it wont take very long,
By the end you’ll never go wrong.
I’m gonna make it basic so everyone can make it,
It’s simple.

2 plus 2 the way that I love you.
It’s as simple as 2 plus 2, the way that I love you.

I’m gonna shake it down, gonna break down now.

2 plus 2 the way that I love you.
It’s as simple as 2 plus 2, the way that I love you.
Track Name: You're Mine
Babe, you know it’s been so long since I saw your face.
I’ve been sitting hear all alone in this cold, dark place.
But I know when I see your smile,
Your heart is mine.

I know I’ve been cruel.
Yeah, it’s tough to reconcile.
But can’t we leave this bad taste behind us if only for a little while?
But I know when I see your smile,
You’re heart is mine.

Yeah you know I’ve tried and tried and tried to be what you want me to be.
But I just seem to keep stumbling over these hurdles right in front of me.
If only I could see your smile,
then I’d know your heart was mine
Track Name: Shakedown
1, 2, 3, 4!
Shakedown!
You don’t need to twist babe you just,
Shake!
You don’t need to do the boogaloo you just,
Shake!
You don’t need no Watusi just Shakedown!

Shakedown!

Put your hands on your hips babe and just,
Shake!
Let your legs go round and round and just,
Shake!
Wave around like you just don’t care and just Shakedown!

Shakedown! Yeah!

Shake!
Just jump to the left everyone and just,
Shake!
Jump up and down and round and round and just Shakedown!

Track Name: The Hustler
I’m a break down, Shake down
Heartbreaker.
A sweet lipped, Snake hipped
Money maker.
If you got cheap women and cheap wine,
See ya later.
I only care for stuff that’s so fine,
But I won’t pay ya.

Sharp suit, fine tie.
Fast car, I don’t even drive.
Place to place I change my face,
No way their gonna get me inside.

I like to Hustle baby.
I like to Hustle baby.

When the cops come, break down the door,
You won’t see me.
I’ll be out the back, I’m all right Jack,
Believe me.
Head for the sunshine, Well I’ll be fine,
You’ll see me.
I’ll be south of the border, well no judge
Will find me guilty

Sharp suit, fine tie.
Fast car, I don’t even drive.
Place to place I change my face,
No way their gonna get me inside.

I like to Hustle baby.
I like to Hustle baby.

I’m a shakedown, breakdown
A Heartbreaker.
A sweet lipped, Snake hipped
Money maker.

Sharp suit, fine tie.
Fast car, I don’t even drive.
Place to place I change my face,
No way their gonna get me inside.

I got to Hustle baby.
I got to Hustle baby.
