19/2000 (Soul Child Remix)

It's the music that we choose
It's the music that we choose
It's the music that we choose
It's the music that we choose
The world is spinning too fast
I'm buying lead Nike shoes
To keep myself tethered
To the days I try to lose
My mama said to slow down
You should make your shoes
Start dancing to the music
Of Gorillaz in a happy mood
Keep a mild groove on
Day doo dee bop
(It's the music that we choose)
Day doo dee bop
(Keep a mild groove on)
There you go!
Get the cool!
Get the cool shoe shine!
There's a monkey in the jungle
Watching a vapour trail
Caught up in the conflict
Between his brain and his tail
(ba ba ba)
And if time's elimination
Then we got nothing to lose
Please repeat the message
It's the music that we choose
Keep a mild groove on
Day doo dee bop
(It's the music that we choose)
Day doo dee bop
(Keep a mild groove on)
Get the cool!
Get the cool shoe shine!
Day doo dee bop
Ba ba ba
Day doo dee bop
(It's the music that we choose)
Day doo dee bop
(Keep a mild groove on)
OK bring it down yeah we gonna break out
Get the cool!
Get the cool shoe shine!
(It's the music that we choose)

 

Dracula

(Rest is good for the blood)
The percentage of us tow the line
The rest of us out of reach
Everybody party time
Some of us will never sleep again

Dracula
Dracula Dracula
Dracula Dracula

The percentage of us tow the line
The rest of us out of reach
Everybody party time
Some of us will never sleep again

Dracula
Dracula Dracula
Dracula Dracula

 

Latin Simone

Get up
If you wanna survive
Get oh so alive
In your life
Everything falling out the sky on top of you
Now what you do
Fill yourself up now
It's the love of your life
[?] on me
All I know
Before it's gone
I always feel scared in the town
And nothing's wrong
What's the matter with me?
What's the matter with me?
Me
Give up
If you wanna survive
Pick the sun back up
You got to get on the song lowly
What's the point?
It's funny 'til you left to kill yourself
In this town
So what's the matter with me?
What's the matter with me?
What's the matter with me?
What's the matter with me?
Me

 

The Sounder (Edit)

You couldn't escape this music even if your name's Houdini
Our tracks say Life, Phi Life and don't disappear like a genie
Communicating through your airwaves like a giant C.B.
Cos this one's for your radios or whether you receive me
Our music is so hot it feels like the sun in Tahiti
We wickedy-wock Gorillaz style is buck wild believe me
We're heavy weights who phase ya, like Ali did with Frasier
We spit the most flavour, and musically we'll amaze you
We've been blessed and we've been gifted, by Jesus in his manger
Won't you shout halleluiah, here comes the music saviour
From your heart to your mind, your spirits to your souls
We've come to take control, with the Gorillaz on patrol
See our rhymes possess the powers of a super hero
Supernaturally we rock the mic but with a natural flow
If you didn't know before, you know now we told you so
Gorillaz rock it on just like the one in Tokyo

Cos we're making this music that's making you lose it
So people don't abuse it, and there ain't no way for you to refuse it
Gorillaz be the army that's starting this party hard
Making more noise than carnivals mixed with the Mardi-Gradi
We're coming through your town with this sound that's so profound
Gorillaz with the rappers that straight from the underground
We're tearing it down, making you feel this sort of force
Knocking it into your senses and knocking you off your course
Cos we're the source, got your feeling that's so appealing
We got you jumping around and bouncing off of the ceiling
Making music and feeling from Baltimore into Bristol
I know you're hearing me cos my voice is clearer than crystal
The casual supernatural flows I be exposing
Making sure that you're frozen and making sure that I'm chosen
To rip us four make you damage the dance floor
Gorillaz and Phi life will give you what you ask for

Let Gorillaz be your guiding light and your shining star
Whether you be home alone, or driving in your car
Don't matter who you are, whether you be near or far
You'll be feeling entertained by our music repertoire
See our poems they be flowing like rivers or reservoirs
Cos Gorillaz we be out of this world like men of Mars
We're rap stars with supernatural spars
We leave your brain amazed with this super music of ours
So put your hands up and stand up it's time to get down
It's Gorillaz and Phi Life we be breaking you round
From the right to the left, From the skies to the ground
We're covering all angles and you cant escape the sound
On the track that's laid back, we've come to spray raps
Keep it chilled and relaxed but we still sound phat
It's like that
When we write raps
We're not from the empire but we still strike back
So put your hands up and stand up it's time to get down
It's Gorillaz and Phi Life, we be breaking you round
Put your hands up and stand up it's time to get down
It's Gorillaz and Phi Life, we be breaking you round

I wake up after the work
I have to do anything
After the work

(noodle speaks japanese)

The most important thing
Is to listen to a recording of the music.
It makes them gain a ..um.. musical sense
And gets to the point of..fast progress

(noodle speaks japanese again)

And also.. every day..every lesson...
We have to make sure they're not lying about
Tunization

 

Clint Eastwood (Phi Life Cypher version)

[Si Phili]
"Yo. Yo. Yo."

'Cause I'm this, Gorillaz from the mist lyracist and my thoughts be twisted
I spit the wickedest rhymes from a time that's never exsisted
My futuristic linquistics turn fools into statistics
I'm a lyrical misfit with the sadistic characteristics
I perform murderous acts on my tracks with a single breath
and if a boy wanna test, then I be stampin' upon his chest
Done makin' a mess - Not a man could concieve the weed I'm consumin'
and I transform from my cartoon pseudonym, turn to a human
I spit words from my mouth that be turnin' you inside out
and I tie knots in intestines just like I'm a boy scout
that's workin' 'em out - Now rearrangin' your whole skeletal structure
then I find some nine inch nails to perform some accupuncture
When I punch ya, I rupture one of your rib cage in a rage
and I turn you into a cartoon toon and erase the page
I take you back to the stone age with Barney and Fred Flinstone
Got Dino to take a machinos and then forage in a live home

[Life]
I'm a take off like a jet pack with the get back, rather step back
I'ma make the crowd react and nod they heads until they kneck snap
Life conflict rap while riding a skateboard and doin' a tic-tac
and leave your head in a spin like servin' on turn table skid mats
I'm a concrete lion, big cat - These are real talk, not big-chat
Did ya get that 'cause I ain't no small timer - I rhyme on big tracks
Now fell the vise I create - This heavyweight, I'm a rap to detanate
and demonstrate how I generate lyrics that supernaturaly levitate
to the top - My lyrics are skeletons - Accelerate and leave you panicin'

Take the ground from beneath your feet, leave you Skywalk-in' like Anakin
I'm sharper than the tips of Zulu spears and Olympic javelins
My style is totally buckwild and most definately happenin'
To your brains I be tappin' in, to computers I be hackin' in
To me, I be out of this world like aliens who were time travelin'
I'm babblin' in the Fists of Fury technique when I speak
Forget Karate Kid and these wooden blocks, I chop from concrete
Concrete, concrete, concrete!
Wha-wha-wha-wha-wha-wha!

[Si Phili]
I'be been stoned; ever since the days of creation, I've been red
I'm a mad dred, causin' so much havoc in Russel's head
My lyracism is just like an aneurysm inside his brain
He plays the beat in a trance and he's never feeling no pain
I could never be a racist because I posess so many faces
I'm one of those beat-up bad wit' bags and a pair of braces
with lines longer than laces - I'm gracin' you with my presence
The lyrics went flippin', makin' ya bubble like effervescence
I pulverize and bamboozle, shake numb skulls like a boodle
I smashed the top of your head with a guitar I borrowed from Noodle
I'm as animated as Japanese animes causin' callamities
Some serious savory from my roarous rhymes of reality
At the speed of sound, I'm wanderin' around - The clown done tried to defeat us
without tenacities or audacity - Don't you ever thought you could beat us
Beat us, beat us, beat us, beat us, beat us, beat us, beat us, beat us,
beat us, beat us, beat us, beat us, beat us, beat us, beat us, beat us,
beat us, beat us, beat us, beat us, beat us, beat us, beat us, beat us...

Come on come on come on!
Ghost train!
Come on come on come on!
Ghost train!

 

Hip Albatross

"Every dead body that is not exterminated becomes one of them.
It gets up and kills! The people it kills get up and kill!"
I was born a zombie
I'm a creep
From the sea
I was born a zombie
I'm a creep
By the sea
"I've got an alternative,
Let's get in that ol' whirly bird over there,
Find us an island some place, get greased up
And spend what time we got left soaking up some sunshine!"

[Lyrics in Japanese]
The most important thing
Is to listen to a recording of the music.
It makes them gain a ..um.. musical sense
And gets to the point of..fast progress
[Lyrics in Japanese]
And also.. every day..every lesson...
We have to make sure they learn about tonalisation
