1.Come 2 My House
Written by Chaka Khan, The Artist, Robert Palmer and Howard McCrary

I've got this feelin' inside
And it won't go away
It'll take time for it to subside
And oh by the way

Come to my house
Where we can play
Like I'm your flower
We'll hide and seek
Then we will find
Love's highest power

Could you stop by for some really good beer
Or a glass of wine
There's no threat, there's no danger here
If you forego go the time

A look in your eyes
And you remind
Me of my daddy
I can't say why
I decided tonight
Yes, you can have me

Love will surrender
Oh, when the heart cries out don't leave me standin' here
Not here
Not now

2.This Crazy Life Of Mine
Written by Chaka Khan and The Artist
This is a story of mind, soul and heart
Come to think of it, don't know where to start
I'd take it from the top but we don't have that much time
So I'm breakin' off a piece of this crazy life of mine

As a little girl, I had a stubborn mind
Bonnie and me were wild most of the time
I used to sing for mama's company
I guess that was the start of the woman I came to be

Sometimes young, yet so old
Warm to the touch, intellectually cold
I love the how and why of it
Thank God the pieces seem to fit
Pieces seem to fit in this crazy life of mine

Never will forget from whence I came
I have some regrets, but I made myself a name
Two times a mother and as many times wed
Tough times were around me, but better times ahead
If your heart can handle these words I've said
I see you and me in this crazy life of mine
Mine...
Gotcha!

3.Betcha I
Written by Chaka Khan, The Artist and Mark Stevens
Chorus:
I betcha I
Betcha I can
Betcha I can love
Betcha I can love ya
Betcha I can love you like you've never been loved before

Betcha I, Betcha I, Betcha I (2x)

I betcha I can woo ya
Betcha I can do ya
Betcha I can do you till you're dead and done
Betcha I can love ya
Betcha I can hold ya
So doncha know that I'm the only one
Betcha I can love you like you've never been loved before

I betcha I can feed ya
Betcha I can bleed ya
And make you think you're havin' fun
Betcha I can choose ya
Betcha I can lose ya
I betcha I can drop you like a smokin' gun

Betcha I can tease ya
Betcha I can freeze ya
Betcha I can warm you like the mornin' sun
Betcha I can flirt ya
Betcha I can hurt ya
Betcha I can do ya till you're dead and done
Betcha I can love you like you've never been loved before

Chorus

I betcha I can hold you
Betcha I can mold you
Betcha I can take you or leave you alone
Betcha I can kiss you
Don't you know that I can dismiss you
And you're dismissed now
Like a rolling stone
And how does it feel?

Betcha I can love you like you've never been loved before

4.Spoon
Written by Chaka Khan, Robert Palmer and Howard McCrary
I got me some cookin'
Not all that good lookin'
He's mighty sweet to me
That's how he's keepin' me

I ain't worried `bout the future
The here and now is lookin' cuter
I like his recipe
That's why I'm layin'

Chorus

You are just like my favorite spoon
Cause you stir me up
I'm as full as a harvest moon
Still I need more in my cup
And only you can give it to me

Am I happy? (I think so)
Don't be so emotional (I can't help it, no)
Will he be there? (I think so)
It's one thing that I do know
This I know

Everybody needs to feel it
Can't beg, borrow or steal it
Love is all about lovin'
When it's hot like an oven

I ain't worried `bout the future
The here and now is lookin' cuter
Got plenty 'o time for sortin'
Cause Mama's little baby loves her shortnin' bread

Chorus

5.Pop My Clutch (featuring Queen Latifah)
Written by Chaka Khan, The Artist and Kirk A. Johnson
There may be some youngbloods
Waitin' in the wings
I'm puttin' on my good duds
So you can hear me sing
I know what you're thinkin' but
This ain't no one night stand
I'm savin' all the good love
For only one man

Pop, pop my clutch (4x)

Don't worry `bout the weather
In London or Rome
Once we get together
You're gonna take me home
I've had plenty boyfriends
Now I need a man
To love me, whatever
And a ring on my hand

Listen pretty baby
I won't say it twice
You could save me
From my own device

Honesty is so refreshing
I don't get that much
You just might be the blessing
To make me pop my clutch

Chorus

I know what you're thinkin'
But this ain't no one night stand
I'm savin' the good stuff
For only one man

Listen, pretty baby
I won't say it twice
You know you could save me
I you pop it right

6.Journey 2 The Center Of Your Heart
Written by The Artist
I know you've been hurt before
I can see it in your eyes
And if you just shut the door
I would not be surprised

Even though I know you've heard it
These words I'm tryin' to say
I think the others only flirted
With the true meaning of always

Chorus

Well you can say what you wanna
But I ain't gonna
Stop this journey to the center of your heart

I see the candle through your window
It burns there every night
The shadow leaves an innuendo
Of no one holdin' you right

Many nights I've dreamt you near me
But awakened to you gone
I know one day you'll hear me
I don't care how long

Chorus

I've waited a lifetime baby
Just to know your name
We've done everything in our minds
Let's stop the game, lets stop it

Even though I know
You've heard these words I'm tryin' to say
Somehow I think these others
They only flirted with the true meaning of always

7.I'll Never B Another Fool
Written by The Artist, Sandra St. Victor and Chaka Khan
I'll never open my legs again
To a man who's insecure
I'll never open my legs again
Unless I'm really sure

Chorus
No I'll never, never
Never be another fool

Sad but true, I slept with you
I thought we were in love
I even got me a rose tatoo
But that was not enough

Chorus

Never, no!
Never, never, never

Nothing but the best of me
I gave with open arms
Alive and well, I'm back from hell
Released from your charms
(It's time to go)

Scene 23, exit, fade to black
Tel me, why'd you have to come back

This love you need to fade
Leave the best to yesterday
If this only one thing is true
I ain't gonna be another fool

Never be another fool

You think about callin'? - Don't!

8.Democrazy
Written by Chaka Khan and The Artist
I got a problem with democracy
Don't know what it really means
A livin' lie, devoid of honesty
Where nothing's really what it seems

I'm in a funky situation
Doom is lurkin' ever nearer
I'm waiting for a revelation
Each day the signs are getting' clearer

Lies to my left, wrong to my right
Compassion unknown
This must be the twilight zone
A grizzly affair
Caught unaware
Why am I so scared
Where have all the flowers gone?

I've got a problem with democracy
So where exactly do I stand?
Who is this dark cloud hangin' over me?
It ain't from God; it must be a man
He is the one that you will seldom see
The new world order is his name
He's got a plan in mind for you and me
There are no winners in this game

Lies to my left, wrong to my right
Compassion unknown
This must be the twilight zone
And I'm standin' here
Tryin' to lose the fear
For this I would die
The truth will open up my eyes

Love will set you free from democracy

Supreme power invested in the people
Is a bit extreme
The highest rank of authority
Only God is Supreme!

9.I Remember U
Written by Chaka Khan, The Artist and Larry Graham
I remember you
From a long time ago
When my eyes were new
It could be just a feeling
But I don't think so
I'm trusting all my senses
That's how I know
I remember you

I remember you
A warm and simple memory
Soft and all aglow
Like a mother's love
That every baby knows
I've listened to my heart
And it tells me so
I remember you

10.Reconsider (U Betta)
Written by Chaka Khan and The Artist
Please forgive me
I don't know what to say except I'm sorry
To scare you away from me
I get crazy and don't know what I've done
It's all hazy
Thought we were having fun
Was it so bad
You feel you had to leave me, baby
Now that you're gone
I need to belong, believe me baby

Chorus

I would be so glad
If you would reconsider and stay
Reconsider, reconsider, reconsider

Baby's cryin'
It'so cold in our place
Inside I'm dyin'
We need the smile on your face
Don't need no money
I don't need no girlfriends
Want my daddy
To love me again and again and again and

Chorus

Sometimes honey
I know I talk too loud
Short temper
I'm apt to cuss you ou
I don't mean it
Passion gets the best of me
Still I love you
And I feel like you love me too

Chorus

If you walk out that door
You betta reconsider this
If you don't call me no more
You betta reconsider, reconsider that
Reconsider
If you think you were lonely before, you betta
Reconsider, reconsider this
That I changed the lock on this door, you betta
Reconsider that
If you stop payin' these bills, you gotta
Reconsider
I betcha somebody will, you betta
Reconside

11.Don't Talk 2 Strangers
Written by The Artist
Lil' darlin', gotta go now
Don't know when I'll be coming back
Got my future all planned out
Got my bags packed
Things don't always turn out right
But that's just the way it goes
Before I leave you, there's just a few
Things you should know

Don't talk to strangers
Don't forget to say your prayers at night
Remember God - He made you
And one day He'll make everything alright
Don't cross on the yellow
You always got to wait for a green light
Remember God - He made you
And one day He'll make everything alright

Lil' darlin', gotta go now
Don't worry, you'll be just fine
When it comes to good luck
I just know you'll always be first in line
Nobody will ever love you as much as I do
But that doesn't mean other people won't love you, too

Don't talk to strangers
Don't forget to say your prayers at night
Remember God - He made you
And one day He'll make everything alright

12.Hair (featuring Larry Graham)
Written by Larry Graham
People ask me everywhere
"Is that really all your hair?"
I just tell `em, "If it ain't
Then it sure don't mean
That now I can't"

I just don't believe it's fair
To judge a girl by the length of her hair

Take two words like "hip" and "square"
The truth will shine and not your hair
Even the blind can almost see
What's outside you and inside me

Down or high, truth or lie
A weak girl's laugh can be
A strong girl's cry

Black or blond or nappy or fair -
You can't judge nobody by hair
If I thought that you would care
I'd wear a wig up under my hair

Down or high, truth or lie
A weak girl's laugh can be
A strong girl's cry

13.The Drama
Written by Chaka Khan and Kirk A. Johnson
In this ever-changing world
Where things become unfurled
And tethered
Like a lioness in her pride
I was gonna stay by your side
Forever

As a planet keeps her moon
Your love I had assumed
And taken
And if this love can't come to pass
Then I would be alas
Forsaken

Chorus

The drama of the chase
The look upon your face
Make up your mind
It would be a waste
If you didn't love me
It would be the drama of all time

If I'm not good enough for you
What else could I do?
I could change
You know, they say like wine
You get better with passin' time
How strange .
I wish that in your eyes
You saw me like the others
See me
I could never say enough
Darlin' just how much I
Wish you'd keep me

Chorus

Drama, drama of all time

It's been ten long years
Since I fell in love so dear
It's got to be the drama of all time
Called you on the telephone
And wondered if you were alone
It's got to be the drama of all time
When I called you back, it was busy
What was that?
It's a drama, drama of all time
Who were you with last night?
Busy, busy, you must be busier
Than a one-legged man in a kick fight
Got to be the drama of all time
Drama, drama of all time
