lyrics

MUSIC SAVED MY LIFE

Pops got me a six string when I was thirteen
I learned a few chords played some Bowie and Queen
It was time to find a stage, try out for a band.
They laughed at the Melody guitar and put a mic in my hand

And from that day I had a new plan

"Fuzz" in DR, classic rock en Español
Took a plane to CT for the birth of Spigga/SHU-SHO
With Jaswho? and two boomboxes
One on the left, one on the right
We wrote Saturday, Saturday, Saturday night - rock on

CHORUS
What you gonna do to get to the top?
What you gonna do to see your album drop?
What you gonna do to get? Will you do it for money?
Will you do it for fame?
Will you do it for women, fancy cars or champagne?

Then the "Meaningful Mindlessness" ensued
Fled to NYC, got me some school
Lolked it up with D, through a personal ad
Funked it out with the "G-Men"

06105 Again

Joined a "Liquid Circus" in more ways than one
Electronic ideals, rock songs 101
Searchin' for something I ran to LA
Drove all over the country and made some friends on the way

What you gonna do to climb up the charts?
Make the girls scream and break their hearts?
What you gonna do to be number one?
What you gonna do to earn them Grammys, son?
What you gonna do to go platinum?
Will you do it for money? Will you do it for fame?
Will you do it for women, fancy cars or champagne?
Do you need the attention? (Music)
Do you need to get high? (Music)
Is revenge from the bullies (Music)
who in school made you cry? (Music saved my life)

When I say Malpache! you say Viva!
Malpache! Viva! Malpache! Viva!
When I say Spigga! you say Bigga!
Spigga! Bigga! Spigga! Bigga!
When I say Malpache! you say Viva!
Malpache! Viva! Malpache! Viva!
When I say Spigga! you say Bigga!
Spigga! Bigga! Spigga! Bigga!

Met a Pittsburgh princess with a typewriter hand
She gave me a valentine with no real plans
We stumbled down Cali via Mexico way
When the party was over we were back in the bay
Papa dread had his temple, Papa now I had faith
When this family's here together
These are chains you can't break
Had some time "El Quickie" then returned to my role

Papa, frontman, Spigga/SHU-SHO - love, rock, rhythm and soul

What you gonna do when the bubble pops?
What you gonna do when your label drops you?
What you gonna do when the girls don't come?
What you gonna do when your band breaks up?
What you gonna do when you're done?
I didn't do it for money. Not for for fame.
I didn't do it for women, fancy cars or champagne
I didn't need the attention, I don't need to get hight
Never cared about the bullies, they never made me cry.
Never wanted exposure, didn't need the acclaim.
Didn't want the endorsements or cover magazines
I don't care about reviews, (Music) I'm not part of a scene (Music)
I don't stop at the crossroads. (Music) I don't need magic beans. (Music)
I don't care about the thieves (Music) who steal my ideas. (Music)
Labels, lawyers, promotors (Music) with their back alley deals (Music)
All I need is my music, (Music) my SHU-SHO family. (Music)
All I need is my children (Music) and my sanity.(Music)
All I need you to know (Music) is that I did it for love, (Music changed my life) love, love.

Nothing ever lasts forever except the music that saved my life.
My true friends are still together because of the music that changed our lives.
Nothing ever lasts forever except the music that saved my life.
My true friends are still together because of the music that changed our lives.
Nothing ever lasts forever except the music that saved my life.
My true friends are still together because of the music that changed our lives.
