Track Name: CHURCH
well I go to church every sunday
in that little shed
have no fear - my friends are here
now lawdy won't you here my prayer
cause I'm talkin' bout CHURCH

bless that holy day
chase my blues away
bless that holy day
I'm a gonna sing and play

well I never have to worry
I never have to fret
all at once salvation comes
it's time like these I won't forget
cause I'm talkin' bout CHURCH

here our voices call to thee
lord above of revelry
here our voices down the line
kingdom come with stolen wine

coz' Ima talkin bout CHURCH
yayes
I'm #soblessed
yes I am
yes I am
and I feel #sogood

every sunday, I'm gonna drink and play
amen
Track Name: Just Another Lover
it was lovely to meet you
down at the rock
baby I had one eye fixed on you
and the other on the clock

now you telling me bout your family
I feel a yawn coming on
and while I can't see this thing lasting baby
why spoil the fun
check it out

I'm the first to admit
you're a special kind of kid
and not easy to dismiss
and I know that you like me darling but you're

just another lover to get high with
just another lover to imbibe with
just another lover who won't blow my cover
mmm just another
go tell your friends I'm really nice
I'll tell my fam you're really nice
then two weeks in we'll say bye bye
just another lover to get high

it was lovely to meet you
out in the street
baby where you led me hand in hand
to where the good folks eat

all that vapid conversation
and the roses to keep
were it not for all this taittinger
I swear I'd fall asleep

you work so hard in the city
come here and love me tonight
and in the bleary morning glory
don't get mad if you're not on my mind
Track Name: Self Destruct
I’ll say one time and then once more
I need a little something to ease my soul
nah nah, a little sugar in my vein
something to take the pain away
you can, you should, you probably might
I'm lying to myself but I’m feeling alright


It’s been a long time since I rock n rolled
and baby’s coming round with a bag of gold
nah nah, everyone I know is gone
it’s only me and the morning light
lose yourself, your soul and your mind
shimmy over baby give your daddy a sign

self destruct now
c'mon do it right
you make it feel so good

take it now
I gotta give it to you
you make it feel so good

yeah I been kicked outta hell many times before
it won’t be long til I'm back knocking at their door
nah nah, its not my nature to learn
I only know that it burns so right
lose yourself, your soul and your mind
shimmy over baby give your daddy a sign

self destruct now
c'mon do it right
you make it feel so good

take it now
I gotta give it to you
you make it feel so good

self destruct now baybee
c'mon do it right
yeeeeeeeaaaaaaaah
Track Name: Feel It Up
roll me
spin me round
love me
then throw me to the ground

don't make drive out all that way for you
only to find you ain't nothing but cute

I've waited hours for this, made myself so sick
yeah I wish you stayed outta my bed today

feel it up
I'm a gonna give it
feel it up
good will get you gone and nothing further
feel it up
I'm a gonna give it
feel it up
you could be like everything or nothing

pull me
drag me down
leave me
without a smile or a frown

a revolution maybe you are not
and au contraire I'm an island and a rock

I've waited hours for this, made myself so sick
yeah I wish you stayed outta my bed today

feel it up
I'm a gonna give it
feel it up
good will get you gone and nothing further
feel it up
I'm a gonna give it
feel it up
you could be like everything or nothing
Track Name: Elizabeth, I've Been a Fool
call me on monday ask me how I been
call me tuesday I ain't slept since when
I've been a fool
Elizabeth, I've been a fool
I've been a fool
Elizabeth, I've been a fool

take me to the clinic put your hand in mine
inject a lil bravado whisper you'll be fine
I've been a fool
Elizabeth, I've been a fool
I've been a fool
Elizabeth, I've been a fool

baby don't blame yourself
yes, I blame myself
baby don't get me wrong
I really do appreciate your help
but the fact of the matter
when the daylight's gone
I lie awake in bed with all these fucked up things I've done
Track Name: Mr. Wonderful
statues of my Grecian physique will line the ivory coast
it's mr. wonderful mis-mr. wonderful
parade through the city see me chillin on my private float
it's mr. wonderful mis-mr. wonderful
complimentary tickets to the title fight, front row
it's mr. wonderful mis-mr. wonderful
now baby baby baby come on tell me who you lovin' the most

I never cared too much for humility man
that's why I keep the top down when I'm driving the benz
and drive your girl round town with five of her friends
and that's illegal
so what?

I got the P.D. eating from the palm of my hand
a school of girls cool me off, use a palm as a fan
the philharmonic come to play me a lullabye man
but I'm too tired, put them back in the van

vacation with royalty - Harajuku, Japan
Tokyo social sex and selfies with fans
my personal tailor fly to meet me in France
tomorrow I'll be wining Zoe Kravitz out in Amsterdam

hey MTV let me take you for a tour of one of my cribs
the other two out in Monaco and Wanaka kid
hold up, back up, ah now look what you did
you and that big ass camera knocked over my Giacometti

priceless - guys this serves as a reminder
take better care in the court of the kaiser
the big cheese / commodore, please you guys are
fucking up my day. HONESTLY.

triple platinum mayo yeah they know who I am
christening super yachts - a shake of the hand
you'll find me in Belgium shooting skeet with the fam
tomorrow I'll be teaching Ryan Gosling how to drive like a man
