song of the day

the last couple of these have come to me courtesy of pandora. pandora is fucking worth it at 10 times the price. pandora learns what you like ... and then only plays shit you'll like. i haven't given thumbs down to a song in a long time now.


say hey (i love you)
michael franti and spearhead
go watch now (awesome video too)

----

this one goes out to you and yours, worldwide

i say hey, i be gone today
but i be back around the way
seems like everywhere i go
the more i see, the less i know
but i know one thing, that i love you

baby girl!

i love you, i love you, i love you.

i've been a lot of places all around the way
i've seen a lot of joy and i've seen a lot of pain
but i don't want to write a love song for the world
i just want to write a song about a boy and girl
junkies on the corner always calling my name
and the kids on the corner playing ghetto games
when i saw you getting down, girl i hoped it was you
and when i looked into your eyes i knew it was true

i say hey, i be gone today
but i be back around the way
seems like everywhere i go
the more i see, the less i know
but i know one thing, that i love you

baby girl!

i love you, i love you, i love you.

now i'm not a highly metaphysical man
but i know when the stars are aligned you can
bump into a person in the middle of the road
look into their eyes and you suddenly know
rocking in the dance hall moving with you
dancing in the night in the middle of june
my momma told me don't lose you
'cause the best luck i had was you

i say hey, i be gone today
but i be back around the way
seems like everywhere i go
the more i see, the less i know
but i know one thing, that i love you

baby girl!

i love you, i love you, i love you.

and i said rocking in the dance hall, moving with you
i said hey momma, hey momma close to you
rocking in the dance hall moving with you
i said hey trippa hey trippa off your shoes!
rocking in the dance hall, moving with you
i said hey momma hey momma close to you
rocking in the dance hall moving with you
i say hey momma, hey momma, hey momma
hey momma, hey momma, hey momma
hey momma, hey momma!

what you gonna do?

my momma told me don't lose you
'cause the best luck i had was you
and i know one thing, that i love you

i say hey, i be gone today
but i be back around the way
seems like everywhere i go
the more i see, the less i know

i say hey, i be gone today
but i be back around the way
seems like everywhere i go
the more i see, the less i know
but i know one thing, that i love you

baby girl!

i love you, i love you, i love you

uh huh, uh huh!

i love you, i love you, i love you
i love you, i love you, i love you

it's true, it's true!

i love you, i love you, i love you
