[Rodney (Rick Ross)] I'm only human I'm only human I'm a man, I make mistakes I'ma make, I'ma make, I'ma make mistakes (Rodney, I love you, homie!) I'm only human (Appreciate it, dog!) I'm a man, I make mistakes I'ma make my mistakes
[Rick Ross] 12 years old and you dealin' crack Your momma only 26, how she deal with that? Got a deadbeat dad, but he far from dead He never knew chocolate milk make you fart real bad (Naw!) One thing that I wish I could change Just to see my daddy wavin' at a football game Just to see my daddy standin' when they say my name Walk me to the locker room and say, "Son, good game!" (For real!) You make a tackle, but nobody there to clap for em So I'm writing down my feelings, never knew it was a rap Our house burnt down, we livin' in motels So no matters how it sound, let me give you the whole tale! Goddamn! Now the tears won't stop! Momma held down three jobs, can she live on top? Never flew on a plane 'til my LP drop So I told her once week that her ears are gonna' pop! (ROSS!)
[Chorus] Oh, yeah! I'm only human I'm a man, I make mistakes I'ma make, I'ma make, I'ma make mistakes I'm only human I'm a man, I make mistakes I'ma make my mistakes
[Rick Ross] Wake up Sunday morning, wanna see my son He already wanna see his sister, he ain't seen in months I know it's about the dollars, so I'm steamin' blunts At the custody hearing and I'm clean as fuck! (BOSS!) I ain't mad at'cha girl, do your thing! Last night I hit the club and I threw that change! (Yeah!) I'mma write you off, unemployed to a Boss! Another young broad, I'll run in there raw! Raw, raw, oh yes I am! Chevy on ground, call it Mex-I-Can I run D.C. like Leo G In A-T-L, I keep a bird in the P-O-T M-I-A! I'm The Mayor on my J-O-B You OD'd, O-Z's on the C-O-D Bink in VA, drinking V8 Squeek-kays got me ready to sneak the DA!
[Rick Ross] I know I'm not perfect (For real!) But I perfected, what I had to work with Trunk full of sack, saying my prayers Let me cut the music down so The Lord can hear! Psalm 27, ink tatted in my arm Made me think back, when I was baggin' up a bong Young D-Boys always bragging about the run I was on my third Rolley, now, I guess we're the bomb! Now it's deep cuts in the club for the watch Might let two dimes just fuck while I'll watch! I'm a Delano, it's Tony Soprano I fuck with Chicanos They get it, G, I know!

New Order took the title for "Blue Monday" from an illustration, which read "Goodbye Blue Monday," in the Kurt Vonnegut book Breakfast Of Champions. The image referred to the invention of the washing machine improving housewives' lives.
The third verse of "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm" by Crash Test Dummies ("they shook and lurched all over the church floor...") was inspired by girl whose parents would speak in tongues at their Pentecostal service.
