  • You're here, I'm pleased
    I really dig your company
    Your style, your smile, your peace mentality
    Lord, have mercy on me
    I was blind, now I can see
    What a king's supposed to be
    Baby I feel free, come on and go with me

    Let's take a long walk around the park after dark
    Find a spot for us to spark
    Conversation, verbal elation, stimulation
    Share our situations, temptations, education, relaxations
    Elevations, maybe we can talk about Surah 31:18

    Your background it ain't squeaky clean (shit)
    Sometimes we all got to swim upstream
    You ain't no saint, we all are sinners
    But you put your good foot down and make your soul a winner
    I respect that, man you're so phat
    And you're all that, plus supreme
    Then you're humble man I'm numb
    Yo with feeling, I can feel everything that you bring

    Let's take a long walk around the park after dark
    Find a spot for us to spark
    Conversation, verbal elation, stimulation
    Share our situations, temptations, education, relaxations
    Elevations, maybe we can talk about Revelation 3:17

    Or maybe we can see a movie
    Or maybe we can see a play on Saturday (Saturday)
    Or maybe we can roll a tree and feel the breeze and listen to a symphony
    Or maybe chill and just be, or maybe
    Maybe we can take a cruise and listen to the Roots or maybe eat some passion fruit
    Or maybe cry to the blues
    Or maybe we could just be silent
    Come on, Come on

    Let's take a long walk around the park after dark
    Find a spot for us to spark
    Conversation, verbal elation, stimulation
    Share our situations, temptations, education, relaxations
    Elevations, maybe we can talk about Surah 31:18

    Let's take a long walk around the park after dark
    Find a spot for us to spark
    Conversation, verbal elation, stimulation
    Share our situations, temptations, education, relaxations
    Elevations, maybe baby, maybe we can save the nation
    Come on, Come on Writer/s: ANDRE HARRIS, JILL H. SCOTT

  • Valerie from Phoenix, AzI just finished watching the entire HBO series No. 1 Women's Detective Agency which stars Jill Scott. She did a fabulous job acting, I hope HBO decides to do a 2nd season.
  • Nikki from Chicago, IlLyzel, Jills muse also inspired the song "He Loves Me (Lyzell in E-Flat) from this same album "Who is Jill Scott". it's sad to learn that they are going through a divorce though.
