100 Yard Dash
Raphael Saadiq Lyrics


I tried to run but couldn't get too far
My heart is bumpin' but still runnin' in place
No matter how hard I try to get your touch
When you're away to love a girls is too much
But every time I run I oh so bad

But I'm running as still my heart's beatin' so fast
I heard that you could make a man change his plan
That's why I'm running fast, I'm running to honey your (dash)

I run for the heels, girl that you wore
How you appeal you see I never know
I told her folks (her love a double face)
Delight me a smoke so I can sing some jazz

Now here come in late, here come those eyes
And me the one I can never deny
I try to ?, move as I can
But I guess I need another plan
I need you lovin' baby, oh so bad

Girl I'm runnin' as (still') my heart's beatin' so fast
I heard that you could make a man change his plan
That's why I'm running fast, I'm running to honey your (dash)

Your love gets stronger
And it feels like everyday it's getting longer
I feel your love like a monkey on my back
Girl your honey's so big see I can feel the attack

Oh oh
I need some lovin'
I, I want your lovin'
I can have your lovin'
I need to, got to, got to have your lovin'

Girl

I tried to run but couldn't get too far
My heart is pumpin' but still I'm runnin' in place
No matter how hard I try to get your touch
When you're away too long oh girl it's too much
But everytime I run I need it oh so bad

Girl i'm runnin' scared my heart is beatin' so fast
I heard that you could make a man change his plan
that's why i'm runnin' fast, i'm runnin' the 100 yard dash.

I ran for the hills and girl there you were
How you appear you see I never know
I told the bartender to pour me a double fast and light me a smoke so I can sing some jazz

Now here come them legs, here come those eyes
And neither one I can never deny
I try to be smooth as I can
but I guess I need another plan
I need you're lovin' baby, oh so bad

Girl i'm runnin' scared my heart is beatin' so fast
I heard that you could make a man change his plan
that's why i'm running fast, i'm runnin' the 100 yard dash.

Your love gets stronger
And it feels like everyday is getting longer
I feel your love like a monkey on my back
Girl your heart is so big; see I can feel the attack

oh oh
I need your lovin?
I, I want your lovin?
I gotta have your lovin?
I need to, got to, got to have your lovin?

I hate that this style is seen as "oldschool", "throwback", when it sounds just as fresh as ever, and is far more invigorating than most of what passes as r&b today.

JBear

It has to...you can't dismiss the sounds/artists that went before

Ashley Mouling

What's wrong with me, man? You know I love dem rigs!

Yellow St

It sure does! I think the problem lies with the fact that a lot of the music realeased this days doesnt quite meet that standard, whereas in "the old days" it did, since in order to become big, artists had to be great. I may be wrong though... Its a pitty this is not the mainstream though perhaps we wouldnt appretiate it as much if it were

I NEVER get tired of this song. He NAILED this jam. On the old school Motown sound!

Lonny Brooks

"Modern Motown" James Brown+Al Green with Prince swagger
