Track Name: One Not Two
Left a note taped to the fridge
I'm staying with Josie
Should have slowed before the bend
But instead we took it coasting
Think you know just what I mean
Tho so far it's been unspoken
Lets take a little time
To get around the roaches

One not two
I'm not fine
Talk it through
Take your time

Took the dog out for a walk
Bumped in to Mrs Bacon
She asked me about how you were
It was an awkward conversation
Now I know what people mean
When they say it's no solution
Not broken up but in between
I need a resolution

One not two
I'm not fine
Talk it through
Take your time

Lost my lighter, lost my keys
It might as well be Monday
Used to tell you all these things
Now I save 'em up for some day, one day,
Maybe, who knows..

One not two...
Track Name: Don't Ditch Me Dean
Don't ditch me Dean,
Been bathing babies since the age of 16
You think you're ready for a lady more lean
But you ain't ready

Don't ditch me Dean
I may be grey but my valley is green
May not be limber as a string bean
But I got moves like them bitches ain't seen

Don't ditch me Dean
I won't be flavoured in collagen spice
You look to upgrade but that ain't right
And Papa you know you can't last the night

Papa, tell me what you're thinking
I'll be your Hillary Clinton
Your Etta over Beyonce
I do it better in my own way

Don't ditch me Dean!
Track Name: The Man From Amsterdam
He was a lonely man
Moved out from Amsterdam
Nobody paid him mind
A skipped over storyline
Tongues let their gossip loose
But i wouldn't know what true
He was a lonely man

Taking my own advice
I walked with him once or twice
He learned then forgot my name
Asleep on the 7 train
And everyone knew the truth
That I was in love with you

He was a lonely man
Come out from Amsterdam
Shopped at the salad bar
For almonds and caviar
He was the man from Amsterdam

An open day waiting for someone
Hang around, hang around
The lonely child knows where it comes from
Run along, run along

He was a lonely man
Shipped to New Amsterdam
Nobody knew his name
A bird in a hurricane
Coming around the block
I'd like to take a walk with you

Left work and took a ride
Down to the riverside
We cheered when Obama won
And everyone had so much fun except
The man from Amsterdam
Track Name: Scarlet & the Impala
Hit by an Impala
Racing down Fifth Avenue
Was my neighbour Scarlet
While walking her Tzitsu
She was on her way to buy a monkey wrench

We live up in Harlem
And ever since last April
Scarlet has been arguing
With our landlord Nathan
She thought that he tried to charge her too much rent

Keen as mustard,
Scarlet was rash
She would have been busted
For not covering her tracks
And everyone knew the beef between these two and it
wouldn't be a slow react

That morning in the street I'd
Seen my neighbour Scarlet
She told me a secret
Said I had to guard it
Then she asked me for the nearest Home Depot

Scarlet planned to wait till
Nathan was at church then
Gather up his suits and
Roll them in the dirt then
Try and put them back before he returned
She was a little crazy this I learned

Fate rolled the dice or to be more precise
A two door Impala then took Scarlet's life
And ended the feud and no suits were filed
Or defiled, I guess...
