Judas Smile

CHORUS:
You been bamboozled, hoodwinked, took
If you thought that you could put me down
And not get a page in my book
You been bamboozled, hoodwinked, took
Tryin' to ball, you will fall
And never get a second look

Before me there was nothing
Without the eye you cannot see
Just a form in the darkness
I brought the light and you believed
With everyone of my creations
A future story would be told (Change it up)
I tried to change it up with temptation (With temptation)
But all your claims must be sold (Walk away with soul, soul)

For every soul there's a buyer (There's a buyer)
For every action there's a price (How much you pay for that, dude?)
For every option there's a tryer
But when the claim run out, ain't nothing nice
That's why...

CHORUS

I changed your name, it didn't suit ya
I did the same for a little while (The same for a little while)
The day your love led to revenue (Talkin' about the money)
In return a Judas smile (Hahaha, you gave me)
What I am will never fade away
Like you being funky - it'll never be
Woo hoo, (What I am) What I am you will finally see (you will see)
Then you will admit to for part harmony

CHORUS
(Hoodwinked)
(Ah, come on)

1979 times two or maybe a bit 'fo that
Me, your sister and yo' brother got paid when the man let 'em up to bat
Whaddya do, do you act like a fool and wonder why your people disown ya?
Sang any song Mr. Charlie wanna sang, see around here we don't know ya

They'd have to take me out (Okay)
For treating B like a B if she ain't one
And if she is it's no good like a rat in the hood
We gonna give her a Bible and then some
Come on! (Uh)

The chocolate invasion starts here {x3}

The chocolate invasion
Neapolitan born to rule
I never was fond of a dumb blonde
That can't swim in the carpool
Your secret's out da box, B.
'Less you 'fess up to what you stole
Here's what we think - you're the weakest link
Get ready 'cause we coming with the old school (Old school)
Old school (Old school) {x2}
Come on, come on - give it to me, baby
(That's music, baby)
(Keep doin' it)

Ahh Mr. Aussieman what makes ya think I'll work for you?
Paying 15 cents on the dollar
Those are the wages of a fool, nigga
Pinocchio mentality on levels more than 9
From now on the only piece you'll ever get from me's my mind

Chocolate invasion starts here
Chocolate invasion starts here (Ahh)
The chocolate invasion starts here {x2}

Now wait a minute
How dare you call a robot 'Mecca'?
I knew that smack was jive
Step right up to the Minstrel Show
Starts in about five minutes
Confess these shuffling punks (Yeah)
Everyone claiming no sin
Act the fool if you wanna
Guess the quickest way out (Tell 'em) is the way in

(Bamboozled) You been bamboozled, hoodwinked, took
If you thought that you could put me down
With a song that got no hook (Oh no)
The chocolate invasion starts here
No matter your color you're still my brother
If you've got no fear - uh!
The chocolate invasion starts here
You still our sister although we missed ya
Come wipe away your tears

Peace to Common, (D'Angelo, Macy Gray, Lenny Kravitz)
To brother Curtis - big love

Chocolate invasion starts here
