I've been lurking on this community far too long. J'Lo gets my bid for some truly awful lyrics.
"I'm down to earth like this
Rockin this business
I've grown up so much
I'm in control and loving it
Rumors got me laughing, kid
Love my life and my public
Put God first
Then can't forget to stay real
To me it's like breathing"
In addition to a complete lack of general coherence to her thoughs. Why does she have to remind herself to "stay real", if its "like breathing" which is an involuntary response?
Also on the J Lo tip...
All my pride is all I have
(Pride is what you had, baby girl, I'm what you have)
You'll be needin' me, but too bad
(Be easy, don't make decisions when you mad)
The path you chose to run alone
(I know you're independent, you can make it on your own)
Here with me you had a home, oh, yeah
(But time is of the essence, why spend it alone, huh)
There is so much wrong with this. First, its hardly romantic to have guy tell you, you don't need pride baby, you have me. But even better is the horrible missuse of a common homilie; "Time is of the essence" means hurry. I'm not even sure why that last line bugs the crap out of me, but I twitch everytime I hear it.
