My Dear
Chorus 4X: Shaq & {Warren G}
I wanna girl like my dear yea
{Tall, slender, brown eyes with the legit like this}

[Verse One: Shaq]
I wanna girl like my dear, that's my mom dukes
Someone to kick back with no fake no juice
Beautiful cars cool collective
Settle down chill out that's my objective check it
My game put my on the map at first base
Make up like cake in your face just ain't my taste
Some girls try to play me but yo I find another
because I gots that crazy game and I'll make like my mother
? speakin I'm like I'm tweekin
my buisness never leak in the street
The packin is so complete, like 7-up I never had it but maybe I will
In need a women that reminds me of Lucille, my dear yea

[Chorus]

[Verse Two: Shaq]
Let's get it on I've been feeling down
Baby know maybe you can help me out
I ain't too proud to beg for some advice
Let the good times roll in the heat ofthe night
I'm supafly TNT Shaquille O'Neal
Reach out for me I'll be there you know the deal
Now ain't that peculair I found a wonder full one
ain't nothing like the ral thing buggin out having fun
A man will always be a man he sippin on? I understand
So let me stick to drinkin up these Pepsi joints
Dunkin, actin and rackin up these points
I look over I see you in the stands
I'm showing off actin a fool for you and my fans
I put my peace sign high up in the air
I think I found a girl just like my dear yea

Chorus:

[Verse Three: Warren G]
Ahhh a brand new verse to smoke as I'm? all the way
Cuz this DJ is kickin up dust from the urban Eastside
Twenty-First street and Louis that's where my funk ride
Chillin with my man Shaq Diesel, cock diesel
Yes it's me Warren jiggy jiggy G'z
So G-funk, we funk till the end of our lives
with respect for our mamas Miss Dee is right

[Verse Four: Shaq]
I'm glad i found that significant other
she remind me of my mother cuz yo there ain't no other
I treat her right like father MC
cuz I check Ralph Tresvant for "Sensitivity"
Behind every great man is a great woman
I keep it commin baby baby I keep it comin
and you don't have to worry about a thang
Cuz living in the fast lane just ain't my thang
Peace to Lucille and Miss Ola May
Cuz women of today like to play what can I say
I'm glad I found me a girl that's real
she reminds me of my number one baby Lucille yea

[Chorus till fade]

I got a story that'll waggle your eyes,
I got a burger and a thingy of fries, I think we disguise 
Our lives when we speak, but we show it with what we eat
We defeat eternal demons with heaps of internal shitty meat 

Ronald had a dream when he was sucking his mom's titty 
He wanted to palm cities rockin' his fall hoodie 
In this heat? Nah man, he ain't no clown
He don't need another guardian to hold the fucking place down,

Ronald, I never got to say thank you
If you caught me at a KFC I never meant to hurt you,
I tore down a thousand burger kings for talking shit,
Have 'em lost for words on some Stephen Hawking shit

This cancer's got these little kids biting lips,
If burgers kill then fuck it I'm gonna die from it,
I'll fucking die for you Ronald, I hope you understand,
Avoid beef and I'm taking your ass to Pakistan,

See if Ronald McDonald would have to run a bottle shop 
Ronald would unload a couple shots on these fucking cops
See McDonald's is the finest china quality 
That make your legs wobble a lava lamp holding Socrates is
Less post modern than Ronald, 'cuz in a thousand years,
You and I'll be gone but the paddies keep flipping 
The chicken is still delicious, the living expense is limitless,
So why the fuck you eating salad bitch,

See back in '48 was when I heard of this magic place
When the atom bomb crushed a small country in it's natural state,
Rebuilt itself into a fine little real estate 
And reeled in any American chains with exceptional taste, but...


They don't understand (they don't understand)

First learned about Monk in a Music Theory class, and I had recognized him because my grandparents were jazz addicts. I came back to Monk and have only loved him more and more. Filthy Frank is OK, and it's totally cool that he used a masterpiece like this in his creations, no matter how silly they might seem. I hope Monk is remembered forever. I really do.

A.E. Garvey I know it was 3 years ago but I feel that it wasn't a filthy Frank subject or really belonged on that sort of channel, what George did with the song made me cry, laugh, and think, about capitalism and all its flaws...

I'm not saying Monk Is trash by any means! Good or bad, all ideas seem to 'foreshorten' into the historical timeline in a similar fashion.

hippojuice23

A.E. Garvey it's hard getting older in the eyes of popular Western culture and so many things go by the wayside that we deem important. the Next Generation always seems to be suckling off the latest trash, which, for them eventually becomes Nostalgia too!

Shhh, don't be reasonable HERE! Circle jerks are no place for normality!

TO ME, THIS IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PIANO PIECE IN JAZZ, PERIOD. NOTHING MOVES ME LIKE RUBY MY DEAR. MONK IS PRACTICALLY WEEPING WITH EVERY NOTE.

You'll probably never read this. For a long time I could not see beyond the 'oddness' in Monk, but in my old(ish) age I find him appealing, as well as uniquely inventive. However this interpretation struck me as glacial, rather the opposite of what you said. In fact I have no idea what Monk felt or was trying to express while playing it. The musical architecture stands on its own, and the exactitude of his repetition of whole sections shows his precise planning.
