  • Go Timbo!

    I'll be the same when it all goes up
    I'll be the same when it all goes down
    Not the first one, open it up
    I'll be the last one closin' it out
    Don't know if I'll give you a shot yet
    Lil' momma, I'm peepin' your style
    Do I think you're dope enough? Yup!
    One way of findin' it out
    The way you came at me, boo
    Don't care, not afraid I'm like wild
    Really want it all head to toe
    Question is she gon' let it out?
    Anyway the hour glass go
    I don't worry anyhow
    Why don't we see where it go?
    Let's figure it out
    (Break it down)

    When the cats come out, the bats come out to play, yeah
    (In the morning after)
    The dawn is here, be gone, be on your way, yeah
    (In the morning after)
    When the cats come out, the bats come out to play, yeah
    (In the morning after)
    The dawn is here, be gone, be on your way, yeah
    (In the morning after dark)

    I got a little secret for ya
    I never sleep when comes the night
    But everytime I snap my fingers
    I switch back into the light
    My moon belongs to your sun
    Your fire is burning my mind
    Is it love or is it lust?
    Something that I just can't describe (ah)
    Am I the one and only? (ah)
    'Cause you're the only one (ah)
    It felt so long and lonely (ah)
    Waiting for you to come
    It's looking bright and early
    I'm willing to close my eyes
    This is the unusual story
    Timbo and SoShy

    When the cats come out, the bats come out to play, yeah
    (In the morning after)
    The dawn is here, be gone, be on your way, yeah
    (In the morning after)
    When the cats come out, the bats come out to play, yeah
    (In the morning after)
    The dawn is here, be gone, be on your way, yeah
    (In the morning after dark)

    I need some R.E.M, but
    I don't like sleepin' alone
    So come and pick me up as
    Soon as you put down the phone
    I wanna get into trouble
    Later you'll carry me home
    I wanna go undercover
    I just wanna rattle your bones
    Yes I'm the one and only
    But I'm not the only one
    So let's work overtime
    On this shift stay up with the sun
    Maybe we can start a riot
    Maybe we can burn this town
    Maybe I'll be your vampire
    We can figure it out!

    When the cats come out, the bats come out to play, yeah
    (In the morning after)
    The dawn is here, be gone, be on your way, yeah
    (In the morning after)
    When the cats come out, the bats come out to play, yeah
    (In the morning after)
    The dawn is here, be gone, be on your way, yeah
    (In the morning after dark)

    Dark dark dark dark dark
    (In the morning after dark)
    Dark dark dark dark dark
    (In the morning after dark)
    Please don't leave me, girl
    (In the morning after dark)
    Please don't leave me, girl
    (In the morning after dark)
    When the cats come out the bats come out to play
    When the cats come out the bats come out to play
    The dawn is here, be gone, be on your way
    When the cats come out the bats come out to play
    The dawn is here, be gone, be on your way Writer/s: Nelly Furtado, James David Washington, Michael Bell, J Washington, Timothy Mosley, Jerome Harmon, Kerry Hilson, D Epstein

  • Jasper from Nieuwegein, NetherlandsClassic Rock is my favourite genre, and I HATE modern DJ-music, but Timbaland is the first I think is pretty much good...
