OREGON KNIGHTS

Lyrics Song Title: Oregon Knights Album Title: While We Can

HOOK


Walked in the door with nothing to lose

A big bag of love and my green suede shoes

The mic that I use to connect the dots

The knowledge that I gained from the miles that I walked

Like you my life's gone up and down.

Spinning in position like a circus clown.

I never would have guessed I would be here now.

But I'm-a make it out this maze someway somehow.


Marv VERSE ONE:


I know you don't know me homie

I don't speak bologna

I bend words like the curve in the macaroni

One of the one and only

Positive not phonies

I push my pen into paper when i'm all alonely

My Walkman's a Sony

I love Tony Toni

Tone OutKast Mos Def they all showed me

How holy matrimonies honing mic skills

Toning up to keep it rolling

The world is unfolding

The nicotine used to seem so controlling

Family is deep

Don Corleone

I score about a buck twenty when I go bowling

Unless we're in the hills and we're all solar bowling

The truth is showing

Up

Where all the elevators go when

You push the button to the top where

It's still snowing

To all my green thumb people keep growing

We're all on the clock

Do work till ya own it


HOOK


Walked in the door with nothing to lose

A big bag of love and my green suede shoes

The mic that I use to connect the dots

The knowledge that I gained from the miles that I walked

Like you my life's gone up and down.

Spinning in position like a circus clown.

I never would have guessed I would be here now.

I'ma make it out this maze someway somehow.



EMILY VERSE:


Backlit with the moonlight glow

So bright I can see my shadow How i got here I don't really know But I do know I love this moment Smile, watch the sun pass the dipper down low Another universe is starting to show Heavens unfold nice and slow And I love this moment Make all my wishes on a falling star All i really want is to be where we are I just wanna sing and play a big fat bass guitar Cuz i love these moments Walked in the door with nothing to lose Whole lotta love, and nothing to prove Heavens unfold nice and smooth And I love this moment



HOOK


Walked in the door with nothing to lose

A big bag of love and my green suede shoes

The knowledge that I gained from the miles that I walked

I never would have guessed I would be here now.

Marv VERSE TWO:


Confidently cocky

Provocatively sloppy

Free-styling with Laf T

In the back of a Jalopy

Slick like the oil when you

Slice open a poppy

Not a carbon copy

Takes notes and watch me

Free to be myself knowing

That you can't mock me

Three mile reach on my cheap walkie-talkie

Talking while i'm walking thru the rose garden watching

Nothing any more

Sweet chocolate candies in the bottom of a stalking

B Boys Break, Pop keep locking

Soaking in the minerally stimulating hot springs

With my woman she's such a young hot thing

Trying to represent it

When I send it like an offering

Invitations always open ended till you stop things

You can hear the kernels in your bucket

Cause it's popping

It's showtime baby

So you know that it's tasty

When I
