The ProclamationIsms & Ologies - Mr. Qwes
(Words and Music by Mr. Qwes)

Verse 1:
Today it’s time to get what’s mine
I’ve been running out of time
And I ain’t standin’ in no lines
I’ll let yall know just what I’ll do
If I tell them I’m so through
And they lookin’ like
“who the h*** are you?”
I’ll let ‘em know!

Chorus:
I’ll tell them I’m the sun and the moon and
King and Maliki
You’re mind stimulation, Original man
To you I am Mister
Q-W-E-S!
Ain’t nuthin’ less
Than the sun and the moon and
King and Maliki
You’re mind stimulation, Original man
To you I am Mister
Q-W-E-S!

Verse 2:
I ain’t waitin’ for no man
To lend his broken hand
When he don’t even give a d***
Daddy didn’t raise no fool
I make it do just what it do
And when they lookin’ like
“Who the h*** are you?”
I’ll let ‘em know!

Chorus

Bridge:
They’d like you to think different
But I know my name very well
Don’t rush to be so complacent
So deep you can’t tell

Chorus

(Words and Music by Mr. Qwes)

Chorus:

Patnas wit me
Ridin’ through the city
You know dem boys
We gotta holla at the cuties
Handshakes and hugs it’s all love
Big ups to the skies above

Patnas wit me
Ridin’ through the city
You know dem boys
We gotta holla at the cuties
Qwes ‘cross the borders
What do we do for ya
Showin’ love to all the
Blocks ‘N Corners

Verse 1:

Summer jam on the radio station
Hateration don’t fit in the equation
Of today’s groove
You know we gotta get caught up
On barber shop conversations
About how the world used to be
How it should be (where are we heading)
We gotta be more clever
I know with a little progression
Things will be better… but all I know is

Chorus

Verse 2:

We gotta stop by Auntie’s way
You know she cooking on the grill today
Call her up tell her to fix me a plate
Cuz the ribs will be gone if you come too late
And to my hustling brothas
I know your struggle
So bootlegger I understand your hustle
In fact let me cop some DVDs
But you better not be selling my CD
Cuz it will be a problem

Chorus

Bridge:

Come together brother, sister
Don’t you see it’s family
In these streets and when we
Move together
In harmony then we can
Give our problems to the skies above
And it could be ‘bout LOVE

Chorus

Mr. ReboundIsms & Ologies - Mr. Qwes
(Words and Music by Mr. Qwes)
Hello?…Hello?
Let me tell you something

verse 1
There you go tryna call and text
Tryna see what’s up with me.
Say your man’s been actin’ up
You tryna roll out with me.
Playing games like you’re interested
You just want some company.
Cuz when you’re all alone, you phone
You don’t know where you wanna be.

You talk my ear off saying that
He lacks the qualities.
Those same qualities that you claim
You see so much in me.
You take advantage (You take advantage. You take advantage of me)
You take advantage cuz you know just how I feel.
And anything we share
I tell myself that nothing’s real, cuz

chorus
When he says he leavin’ for sure
(You call me cuz I’m Mr. Rebound)
But when he comes back I’m out the door
(You call me cuz I’m Mr. Rebound)
And when you can’t take it anymore
(You call me cuz I’m Mr. Rebound)
You assume I’ll always be around,
Mr. Rebound.

verse 2
Drop everything I’m tryna do
Expecting me to be there for you. (you)
And when we spend our time
What makes you think I wanna hear about Old Dude? (dude)
You flirt and say I’m so special
With your words you’re so careful.
I play the games listen to the lines
I need to leave yo ass behind.

chorus
When he says he leavin’ for sure
(You call me cuz I’m Mr. Rebound)
But when he comes back I’m out the door
(You call me cuz I’m Mr. Rebound)
And when you can’t take it anymore
(You call me cuz I’m Mr. Rebound)
You assume I’ll always be around,
Mr. Rebound.
(You call me cuz I’m Mr. Rebound)
But when he comes back I’m out the door
(You call me cuz I’m Mr. Rebound)
And when you can’t take it anymore
(You call me cuz I’m Mr. Rebound)
You assume I’ll always be around,
Mr. Rebound.

Rap (Duke Nice):
I’m Mr. Rebound a.k.a. escape from the monotony
of monogamy probably why she got to me.
Actin’ like she got the hots for me
when she hot at him.
But when it’s cool again
she back to droppin’ me.
Ironically I’m sort of like her bad habit
hit me when she need a fix and we back at it.
And I’m just caught up in the mix of the mathematics
heart divided by two so it’s half magic.
Other half tragic, knowing that she don’t belong to me.
Pretending that she do when “my boo” is what she calling me
But all in, all I’m in need is something different.
This last bit I’m kicking for the men in my position, so listen.
Don’t mean to be a jacked up man
but I can’t keep up the act, you need to pack up fam.
If she, cheat with me I ain’t the backup man
So before she leaves him, she better have a backup plan cuz’ I’m out.

Bridge:
I’m talking ‘bout my love, I’m talking ‘bout my life
You playing these games, I can’t waste my time.
I know I put myself in this position, cuz’ you turn me on
but know I gotta step out lady, I gotta bounce baby, I gotta get out!
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

chorus

I Think of YouIsms & Ologies - Mr. Qwes
(Words and Music by Mr. Qwes)

Verse 1:
This physical infatuation
runs vaster then your blue skies,
deeper than the oceans of your brown skin,
thicker than your thighs,
rounder than this earth can bear,
dare appreciate, it’s too late, you’re already mine.
I think of you…

Chorus
When I close my eyes.
I think of you.
When I see a smile.
I think of you.
Warmth comes in my heart.
I tend to think about you daily.

Verse 2:
A cognitive situation, you shine your sunlight.
Your intelligence connects with the complexity of our chemistry.
You see I’m in love with you
for the things you do
your head is right.
So I think of you…

Chorus

Bridge:
Many will have outer beauty
but that’s too familiar.
I’m looking for the kind only found inside
something peculiar.
I think I found that inside of you
what you say and do everything that makes you.
I can’t see myself chasing after nothing new.
So I think of you

Chorus

I think of you.

Ha!
Mr. Qwes
Recipe

Verse 1:
Cognition I’m done spittin’ and flippin’
through dictionaries, keep your right brain twitchin’ for ya.
Done rippin’ I’m fixin’ to make linguistic incisions so insane in the membrane
If reality is only perception deep
then my philosophy is Socrates got nothing on me.
Colloquialism I’m spittin’ light through prisms
never shifting I’m sifting, pro-Africana black fisting

What’s he saying?….
Chorus
Isms and Ologies (4x)

Verse 2:
Bougie aristocracies fools trying to block me.
My swagology walk the streets with no apologies.
My guess is that you’re probably lost in your psychology
expeditious stylistics don’t mean there’s something wrong with me.
Educated is outdated
the only way to make it is to fake it with shallow minded degradation.
Sensations of bliss miseducation in unbalanced equations
got my mind quaking…so

What’s he saying?….
Chorus

Bridge:
Trying to give you what you want and what you need.
You gotta keep on coming hard to catch up with me…me
What’s he saying?….

Chorus

Myself, My EnemyIsms & Ologies - Mr. Qwes
(Words and Music by Mr. Qwes)

Verse 1:

Shadows overwhelm the dawn on my run
Foolish back against the sun
This familiar stranger is my own

B section:

I gotta stick to my guns
Gotta stick to my guns
For there’s nowhere to run
For there’s nowhere to run
Gotta pick up my pace
Get myself out the way before it’s too late
It’s too late for me

Chorus:

Myself, my enemy
Dawn of destiny
I can see the reaper in me
Myself, my enemy
Sow and you shall reap
I can see the reaper in me

Verse 2:

Murder on the battlefield
Fallen dreams and hopelessness
How do you win the fight
when it’s you on the other side

B section:

You gotta stick to your guns
Gotta stick to your guns
For there’s nowhere to run
For there’s nowhere to run
Gotta pick up your pace
Get yourself out the way before it’s too late
It’s too late for me

Chorus

Just MeIsms & Ologies - Mr. Qwes
(Words and Music by Mr. Qwes)

Verse 1:

Never been the kind to floss and bling
Sort of candid like the songs I sing
My impulses get the best of me
And sometimes I look too deep into things

Never been the kind to give my heart to just anyone
True believer in just having fun
Skip walking I prefer to run
And I’ll keep running ‘til the race is won

Chorus:

I’m just trying to be what’s true to me
(Take a look at my reflection)
And I like what I see
Let me live for me
And I just wanna be happy
Through everything I’m just me

Verse 2:

Never been the type to follow trends
Rock it out even if it ain’t even in
Don’t tell me nuthin’ bout the situation
What I like is what I like and that’s the end

Never been the type to act all tough and mean
The coolest cornball that you’ll ever meet
Not too much into the party scene
I’d rather stay at home and watch an old black and white movie

Chorus

Bridge:

Won’t live my life trying to follow
There’s no promise of tomorrow
Live to win
We’ll be one in the end
Until then, I’m just me
There’s no one else I’d rather be

Chorus

WantIsms & Ologies - Mr. Qwes
(Words by Mr. Qwes)

Verse 1:

Got the kinda heat to make your knees go week
Gasping for oxygen in so deep
Daredevil wearing red ain’t afraid to stunt
I’m wide open I can’t even front
You know what I want
You know what I want
You know how I like it baby (you know just how to work me)

Chorus
You know what I want
You know what I want
You know how I like it baby (handle the machinery)
You know what I want
You know what I want
You know how I like it baby

Verse 2:

We move this effort to the floor
Stimulating by yourself, we can make it more
Our silhouettes moving ‘cross the wall
We so high up ain’t afraid to fall
Got the kinda heat to make your knees go week
Gasping for oxygen in so deep
I’m a danger babe ain’t afraid to stunt
We dancing like we the only ones
Cuz I know what you want
I know what you want
I know how you like it baby

Chorus

Bridge:

Flyest thing in the room
And I shamed to be passenger babe
You keep on doin’ what you do

If You’re Looking For MoreIsms & Ologies - Mr. Qwes
(Words and Music by Mr. Qwes)

Verse 1:

Let me explain I’m just a man
Though times are hard and things look bad
I’m doing everything I can

Don’t have the flyest car ain’t got no dough
But for what it shows I can give you more
Than the physical

Chorus:

And if you’re looking for more
I’ll walk right out the door
And I won’t call you anymore
I won’t even look your way
Cuz I believe you deserve to be happy
Even if that means
It’s without me
I’ll leave you alone
I can leave it all

Verse 2:

Now let’s be real, let’s be precise
My watch ain’t iced but my heart is right
And I’ll give it to you if it’s alright

The stars above and the turtledoves
All these silly fancies can’t contain my love

Chorus

Bridge:

See the world ain’t mine to give
And the dough these days is too tight to live the high life
But if love is all you need
Then I can give you everything
I can give it all
I can give it all

Chorus

Don’t Make Me Say ItIsms & Ologies - Mr. Qwes
(Words and Music by Mr. Qwes)

Verse 1:

Would it do just to tell you
That I kind of miss you when you’re gone
And at night when I’m alone
I’m sitting and waiting right here by the phone
On my mind I can’t get a break
When I close my eyes I think about you anyway
I’d rather beat ‘round the bush about it
Oh but your heart it seems it can’t live without it

Chorus:

Don’t make me say it
Don’t make me say it
Don’t make me say it
Don’t make me say it
Don’t make me say it
Don’t make me say I’m falling in…

Verse 2:

Would it do just to let you know
That you gotta smile to make my world go ‘round
Ain’t it enough you call my bluff
Walking around trying to act tough
Oh the sound of your voice it makes my day
When I close my eyes I think about you anyway
I’d rather beat ‘round the bush about it
Oh but your heart it seems it can’t live without it

Chorus

Bridge:

Daytime I’m thinking ‘bout you
At night I’m dreaming ‘bout you
Lately it’s my favorite thing to do
I try to fight the feeling but you know the truth
I don’t want anyone else but you
It’s so hard for me to drop my guard
To say what I mean
Might make me vulnerable I don’t wanna do that so
I don’t wanna say it
I don’t wanna say it
I don’t wanna say it
I don’t wanna say it
I don’t wanna say it
I don’t wanna say it
I don’t wanna say it

I’d rather beat ‘round the bush about it
Oh but your heart it seems it can’t live without it

Chorus

Don’t make me say it (X5)
Don’t make me say I’m falling in Love
