Basement Jaxx - Rooty Lyrics






Romeo

You keep on giving me the hold up
You know I wish you'd make your mind up
Cuz when we get it on, you're so-so
You used to be my romeo (woa oh ay oh)
Cuz you see my dear, I have, had enough
Of keeping quiet about all this stuff
You're neurotic like a yo-yo
You used to be my romeo (woa oh ya oh)
Let it all go (woa oh ay oh)
Let it all go (woa oh ay oh)
Let it all go (woa oh ay oh)
Let it all go (woa oh ay oh)
Let it all go

You used to be my romeo

You keep on giving me the hold up
You know I wish you'd make your mind up
Cuz when we get it on you're so-so
You used to be my romeo (woa oh ay oh)
Cuz you see my dear, I have, had enough
Of keeping quiet about all this stuff
You're neurotic like a yo-yo
OH you used to be my romeo
Let it all go (woa oh ay oh)
Let it all go (woa oh ay oh)
Let it all go (woa oh ay oh)
Let it all go (woa oh ay oh)

Let it go oh oh oh
Let it all go
Cuz you left me laying there,
With a broken heart.
Staring though a deep cold void,
Alone in the dark
And I miss the warmth in the morning,
And the laughter when I can't stop yawning
But the tears on the pillow have dried my dear
Gonna let it all go cuz I have no fear

(woa oh ay oh)
Let it all go (woa oh ay oh)
Let it all go (woa oh ay oh)
Let it all go (woa oh ay oh)
Let it all go
My romeo
You used to be my romeo
You used to be my romeo
You used to be my romeo
You used to be my romeo
You used to be my romeo
Let it go oh oh oh

Breakaway

I, I've got to break away
Cause no one out there listens to a single word I say
I, I've got to break away
Cause no one out there listens to a single word I say

I, I've gotta get away
I'm living the same old shit each and every damn day
I, I've gotta get away
I'm living the same old shit each and every damn day

I'm on fire, and I've got to, got to..break out

Breakout

I've had enough of this, got to break it through

I, I've got to break away
Cause no one out there listens to a single word I say
I, I've got to break away
Cause no one out there listens to a single word I say

I, I've gotta get away
I'm living the same old shit each and every damn day
I, I've gotta get away
I'm living the same old shit each and every damn day

Got to leave all this trouble, living life on the double
And my mind's going mad in emotional muddle
Can't see, can't think, all trapped in a bubble
All I want is to...break out...

Break out, break out
And you can't put me out

I've had enough of this, gotta break it through...

SFM

She's a funky feline machine
Crazy cat inside your dream
Shes's a honey, she stings like a bee
You're the punk and she's the queen
She's an angel, she's a dove
With a taste for villians blood
Packin heat, struttin on the street
Chew you up and make you meat
Sexy feline machine
You can't stop her
Ya-ya-ya-ya
Sexy feline machine
You can't stop her
Ya-ya-ya-ya
She's a funky feline machine
Crazy cat inside your dream
Shes's a honey, she stings like a bee
You're the punk and she's the queen

Kiss me on my eyelids
Make bad things go away
Kiss me on my forehead
Make everything okay
Hold my face real steady
I don't want you to miss
'Coz the remedy of all my pain is
Just one kiss

Broken Dreams

I'll tell you how my day has been
How the sun has caught my face
How I lull myself to sleep
Waving shadows on my face

Chasing dreams that just passed by
Broken dreams, I'm just too late
Chasing dreams that just passed by
Broken dreams, I'm just too late

Chasing dreams, chasing dreams, chasing dreams
Chasing...... chasing broken dreams
Chasing dreams, chasing dreams, chasing dreams
Chasing....... ( oh oh ) chasing broken dreams

If only you could keep me warm
If only you could keep me from harm
If only you could.............

Chasing dreams that just passed by
Broken dreams, I'm just too late
Chasing dreams that just passed by
Broken dreams, I'm just too late

Chasing dreams, chasing dreams, chasing dreams
Chasing........chasing broken dreams
Chasing dreams, chasing dreams, chasing dreams
Chasing.......... ( oh oh ) chasing broken dreams

Broken dreams

I Want U

I don't know if I can give you anything to make you feel right
I can but try 'cos I can't stand the madness in my head
The whole night through
I've been thinking, I've been sinking
Lost on Mars, got no paddle
Not a super-catch, ain't no model
Hardly seem to count, I'm just an ordinary bod
Down di di...
I want u and everything you say just makes me want
U and every single day I just want
U in every single way and I just want
U and I'm just lost
I don't know if I can give you anything to make you feel right
I can but try 'cos I can't stand the madness in my head
The whole night through
I've been thinking, I've been sinking
Lost on Mars, got no paddle
Not a super-catch, ain't no model
Hardly seem to count, I'm just an ordinary bod
Down di di...
I want u and everything you say just makes me want
U and every single day I just want
U in every single way and I just want
U and I'm just lost

Wheres Your Head at

Where's your head at

Where's your head at (Where your head at)
Where's your head at (Where your head at)
Drozze it

Okay are you ready, I'm ready

Don't let the walls cave in on you
We can live on, live on without you
Don't let the walls cave in on you
We can live on, live on without you
Don't let the walls cave in on you
You get what you give that much is true
Don't let the walls cave in on you
You turn the world away from you

Where's your head at (Where your head at)
Where's your head at (Where your head at)
Wasn't that?Okay are you ready, I'm ready
You have now found yourself trapped in the incomprehensible maze
Where's your head at, you'll know how to be
Where's your head at, you don't make it easy on yourself
Where's your head at, what you give is what you get, is what you get
Where's your head at (Where's your head at)
Where's your head at (Where's your head at (Okay are you ready, I'm ready)

Don't let the walls cave in on you
We can live on, live on without you
Don't let the walls cave in on you
We can live on, live on without you
Don't let the walls cave in on you
We can live on, live on without you
Don't let the walls cave in on you
We can live on, live on without you

Where's your head at, Where's your head at
We can live on, live on without you
We can live on, live on without you
We can live on, live on without you
We can live on, live on without you

Freakalude

Hehe hehe he...
What is freaky?
Freaky is a... a whole lot of magic bottled up,
In one little space.

It just needs to escape!
But you know what?
I don't call it freaky...
...I call it FUNKY...

Crazy Girl

When I met you
You were sexy
You were freaky
I thought my luck was in
Then I noticed,
You were crazy
I did not know what to do
Cos I thought it was love

Crazy Girl (Freaky)
Crazy Girl (Freaky)

What we had now its gone

I want something that you cannot give
Somewhere where the sun will shine
Why must we be so imcompatible
Freaky cos I thougt I was in love

Crazy Girl (Freaky)
Crazy Girl (Freaky)
Crazy Girl (Freaky)
Crazy Girl (Freaky) Kind of special in so many ways

What we had now its gone

Crazy Girl (Freaky)
Crazy Girl (Freaky)

Crazy Girl (Freaky)
Crazy Girl (Freaky)
Crazy Girl (Freaky)

What we had now its gone

Do Your Thing

I don't need no tv, I don't need no news
All I need is a bumpin beat to bump away my blues
I don't give a damn what the people say
I'm gonna do it, gonna do it my way
Gonna let it all out an do my thing
Boom boom boom an a bang bang bang
Oooh-do your thing
Do your thing, make my body sing
Do your thing, your thing, my thing, oh oh oh oh
Say shut your mouth you're in a fatal tiz
Free the mayhem in your mind, release the need inside of you You're gonna suffer
Do your thing, do you
Boom boom boom an a
Oooh-Do your thing
Do your thing, make
Do your thing, your
Give me ying-yang
Do your thing, make
Do do do
