"Together"
(Doña Oxford & Barry Goldberg)

Some people say that you stand in my way
I could be living on a bed of ease
Still others, too, say I’m no good for you
Cuz you let me do just as I please
Dysfunction comes easy, but you know how to please me
So I learn to look the other way
Sometimes life is hard, we’re not dealt all the cards
But we won’t let that stand in our way

We may not have it all together, and our problems might not seem so small
We may not have it all together, but together we have it all

My family is crazy and your friends all are lazy
But we learn to love them through and through
Your mother’s unsympathetic and she’s unapologetic
But I knew that when I said ‘I do’.
We’re broke, tired & hungry and we ain’t got no money
And we can’t do things the way we should
Our lives may be flawed, but you’ve got to thank God
For the bad things as well as the good.


We may not have it all together, and our problems might not seem so small
We may not have it all together, but together we have it all.
We may not have it all together, and our problems might not seem so small

"Don’t Go"
(Doña Oxford)


Won’t somebody rescue me
I’m living in a fantasy
I can’t control my senses
Won’t somebody lock the door
I can’t take it anymore
I’m what they call relentless
I gotta have you everyday
You know I always get my way
I’m not that kind of person
I might want you to beg me ‘please’
Or just give me a little squeeze
I’ve gotta have a diversion

Don’t go down the ways of suffering men
Don’t go cause I’ve already been
Don’t go, leave your worries all behind
Don’t go, ‘cause you’re the loving kind

Where you going? Where you been?
Been to hell and back again
I know just what you’re feeling
Someone take a look at me
I’m living now in misery
I need some kind of healing
Say it loud and say it clear
Maybe someone good will hear
and help that inner child
I can take your pain away
let me try and lead the way
Before you get too wild

Don’t go down the ways of suffering men
Don’t go cause I’ve already been
Don’t go, leave your worries all behind
Don’t go, ‘cause you’re the loving kind

"Step Up"
(Doña Oxford & Barry Goldberg)

Look me in the eye when I’m talking to you
Stare me in my soul, don’t just look right through.
Don’t just respond with a phrase that’s contrived
We gotta touch one another so we still feel alive
Too much ignorance with privilege, Dumbing down, a sacrilege
Undereducated , Fear that leads to hatred
Dignity , what’s that? We got war and combat
Telling lies, in disguise, no one tries

You got to step up, my brother, You got to step up, my sister, too
You got to step up, now people
Respect is all you need, if you want to see the world improve

You got to give me some respect if you want it back
Think before you move don’t just shoot to attack.
Open up your heart so we connect man to man
Stop living your life just to pull off a scam
It’s a quick fix with clichés, Disposable , road rage
Money hungry, Nations bleed, Ghetto speak, high speed
Hard work, what’s that? Pompous, pious, selfish brat
If we exceed too much greed, we will recede

You got to step up, my brother, You got to step up, my sister, too
You got to step up, now people
Respect is all you need, if you want to see the world improve

We can have a better life if we reunite
Peace, love & laughter should replace the fight
Remember a time when there was no fear
Now too many mothers are shedding a tear
We got to step up, find peace, Elevate and release
Learn to acknowledge, Instead of battle, college
Conflict. What’s that? Let’s lay down a welcome mat
We can raise glory days in many ways

You got to step up, my brother, You got to step up, my sister, too
You got to step up, now people
Respect is all you need, if you want to see the world improve
You got to step up, my brother, You got to step up, my sister, too
You got to step up, now people
Respect is all you need, if you want to see the world improve

"I Want To Change The World"
(Doña Oxford & Barry Goldberg)

Homeless woman on a bus stop bench
Had big plans now her life’s a mess
Oh baby (oh baby, baby) I wanna change the world
Can’t buy gas for your Cadillac Car (uh huh)
Ya kill for oil, Now, you’ve gone too far
Oh baby (oh baby, baby) I wanna change the world
I wanna change the world, but it takes 2 (oooh)
Let’s get it together baby, just me & you (oooh)
You know we can make a difference in this world if we start today, (oooh)
I want to see my future in a whole new way. (aah)
Hate one another, that’s no way to live.
But why should I love someone who can’t forgive?
Oh baby I wanna change the world

Suits steal millions but they’re never caught
Folks on the hill are easily bought
Oh baby (oh baby, baby) I wanna change the world
Mom steals baby food to feed her child
Does 20 years now, Ain’t that wild
Oh baby (oh baby, baby) I wanna change the world
I wanna change the world, but it takes 2 (oooh)
Let’s get it together baby, just me & you (oooh)
You know we can make a difference in this world if we start today, (oooh)
I want to see my future in a whole new way. (aah)
Cancer, Aids and even HIV
Don’t have a cure yet, are you kidding me?
Oh baby I wanna change the world

Revolution’s gonna take a lot
Can’t make changes ‘les you take a shot
Oh baby I wanna change the world
I wanna change the world (change the world)
I wanna change the world (change the world)

"Between The Sheets"
(Doña Oxford)

I’ve had to let you go.
You don’t live in my heart anymore.
Though I love you still.
In my life you don’t have a part anymore.
I’ll give you up to another; we’re not made for each other,
Although I have to say you were one hell of a lover
Between the sheets I uncovered 2 other girls

Now, I remember well.
It was two days before yesterday
I was going thru hell
Just needed time & to get away
I walked into your place, when my heart started to race.
And then I caught you upstairs with a smile on your face you were
Between the sheets with 2 other girls.

It’s a hard lesson to learn
Cuz you told me that you loved me a long time ago
And it stings when you get burned
But it feels so much better honey once you know
So I’ll say all of my goodbyes
Though you don’t deserve it I will be so good to you
I won’t take any more lies
I’m packing my bags & I’m walking away from you.

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

I’ve had to let you go.
You don’t live in my heart anymore.
Now I’m over you
In my life you don’t have a part anymore.
I know you’re a scoundrel, you wont see me ‘round
And even though it hurts me boy, I’m so glad I found you
between the sheets with 2 other girls.

"Shame On Me"
(Doña Oxford)


Shame Shame Shame, Shame Shame Shame,
Shame on me for loving, loving loving you

You’re so predictable
I know you’re gonna hurt me
You’re gonna love me than desert me
But I can’t avoid the fire in your eyes
You’re so despicable
You dissect my positivity
With out an ounce of sensibility.
And all that passes thru your lips are callous lies

Shame on me for loving you
I mean it, this time we are thru
Until tomorrow when I do it all again

You’re reprehensible
You suck the light that is within me
But I take it on the chin
Because you know what makes my body go insane
Incomprehensible
That I continue to believe you
When I know that I should leave you
But you can’t say that our love life is mundane

Shame on me for loving you
Despite The hell you put me thru
Until tomorrow when I do it all again

Dizzy, you make me
Busy, you tell me
Lousy I feel when I’m with you. When I’m With You
Crazy I’m feeling
You got me reeling
Cuz you keep on stealing oh my heart!

Stealing oh my heartShame on me for loving you
I mean it, this time we are thru
Until tomorrow when I do it all again

"I Am"
(Doña Oxford)

I am stronger than a willow tree in winter
I am beautiful because my mother told me so.
I ‘m as patient like a flower awaiting springtime
I’m as graceful as a little baby doe
I am taller than the pyramids of Egypt
I am worth more than the diamond on your hand
I am gentle as a summer breeze in August
I am all of these things, Lord, just because I AM

"Here We Go Again"
(Doña Oxford)

Kiss me on my red cheek. Boy you make my knees weak
When I spot them peek-a-boo eyes
Touch me on the right spot. Baby make me red hot
Serve me up a big surprise
Honey make me feel good like you know that I should
Don’t you stop ‘till I say ‘when’
Feel my pulse a revin’. Send me up to heaven, baby
Give it to me once again
Boy you don’t know what you do to me
You’ve got my mind spinnin’, I’m in ecstasy
Come on baby, Come on baby show me now
Here we go again!

Tell me what you’re feeling. Something more revealing
But baby don’t you talk to long
Use your lips for kissin’. Not that I wont listen
Baby you’re so big & strong
Hold me for an hour. Can you feel the power
baby you do that so nice
You want a little rompin’ or a little’stompin'
Honey just roll the dice
Baby take my body for a little spin
up an down all around & back again
Come on baby, do me like you did before
Here we go again!

"He’s My Baby"
(Doña Oxford)


Somebody’s got to tell me
Where my baby lays his head
Cuz it’s been days and weeks & month
Since he’s been sleeping in my bed
I got to know, I got to know, I got to know (She’s got to know)
Is he still in love with me?
Cuz if he’s with another woman,
Then he’s buzzin’ ‘round the wrong tree, cuz

He’s my baby – I love that man of mine
He’s my baby – I got to call him on the telephone
He’s my baby – he’s my baby
So why do I feel so all alone

I moved over the mountain,
Across the river to the sea
Just to be closer to my baby
Then he moved his heart away from me
I remember like it was yesterday (yesterday)
He said that he loved me
Now my heart is aching
And there’s pain where his love used to be cuz

He’s my baby – I love that man of mine
He’s my baby – I got to call him on the telephone
He’s my baby – he’s my baby
So why do I feel so all alone

Now if you see my baby
Walkin’ around town on the arms of another another girl
You tell him how he hurt me
And he destroyed my whole wide world

He’s my baby – I love that man of mine
He’s my baby – I got to call him on the telephone
He’s my baby – he’s my baby. So why do I feel so all alone

"Sweet Memories"
(Doña Oxford)

Take my heart, Take my soul
Take my breath away and make me whole
Take my love and offer me the world
Fill my void, Fill me up
Fill me with your lovin’ cup
Prove to me that I’m your only girl
I’m gonna treat you like no other woman can do
You’ll feel so good when I get through with you
Oh baby, Oh baby let’s make sweet memories

Love me darling, Love me true
Love me til your toes turn blue
Love me baby, all the live long day
Hold me close, Squeeze me tight
Say my name through out the night
Never leave me and love me all the way
I’m gonna love you til the sun comes out to play
I’m gonna listen to every word you have to say
Oh baby, Oh baby let’s make sweet memories

"Is It Any Wonder"
(Doña Oxford)

Is it any wonder that I’ve fallen for you
Can you feel it baby, by the things that I do
I can feel the magic, when I look in your eyes
I can feel the passion by the smile on your face as I hold your embrace
It makes me feel hypnotized

Is it any wonder that I’ve fallen for you
Will it ever happen that you feel this way too
Is it any wonder I feel larger that life
But you play with my emotions,
and I come back for more, though my heart hits the floor
I can’t take much more tonight

Tell me you love me, Don’t you tell me no lies
I can see the truth babe, By the look in your eyes
Please please please love me, And I’ll be so good to you
If you love me back, I’ll do anything you want me to.

Is it any wonder, that I’m so stuck on you.
Will it ever happen that you feel this way too
You make me feel so happy, just to have you near
If you say that you don’t love me that’s the one thing I fear

Is it any wonder, Is it any wonder, Is it any wonder, Is it any wonder

"For The Children"
(Doña Oxford)

Young man sits by the railroad track
He’s waiting for a train
Not to ride on or to meet someone
He’s just in too much pain

Now, I hear crying from the house next door
And I know her daddy is home
She thinks she is just the only one
Little girl, you’re not alone

Don’t you say it’s over
Before the war is won
If you say it’s over
We’re dead before begun

Child found in a parking lot
Can’t identify his smile
Tiny teardrops streaming down his face
He hasn’t known love for a while

Don’t you say it’s over
Before the war is won
If you say it’s over
We’re dead before begun

Little girl in a mini skirt
She don’t look no more than nine
Makes more money than the President
In just two hours time

Don’t you say it’s over
Before the war is won
If you say it’s over
We’re dead before begun

Don’t you say it’s over
Before the war is won
If you say it’s over
We’re dead before begun
