WHITNEY HOUSTON

It's Not Right But It's Okay

Heartbreak Hotel

My Love Is You Love

If I Told You That

When You Believe

In My Business

I Learned From The Best

Oh Yes

Get It Back

It's Not Right But It's Okay

Friday night you and your boys went out to eat

Then they hung out, but you came home around three

If six of y'all went out, then four of you are really cheap

Cause only two of you had dinner

I found your credit card receipt

Chorus:

It's not right, but it's okay

I'm going to make it anyway

Pack your bag up and leave

Don't you dare come running back to me

It's not right, but it's okay

I'm going to make it anyway

Close the door behind you

Leave your key

I'd rather be alone then unhappy


I'll pack your bags so you can leave town for a week

Yes I am

The phone rings, and then you look at me

(why turn and look at me)

Said it was one of your friends

Down on 54th street boy

So why did 213, show up on your caller id


I've been through all this before

Don't think about it, don't think about it

Think on the door

Things are going to change baby

Don't stand no chance boy

Say yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Don't mess around

There's no more tears left here for you to see


Was it really worth you going out like that

Tell me, ooh

See I'm movin' on, and I refuse to turn back yeah

See all of this time, I thought I had somebody down for Whitney

It turns out, you were making a fool of me


It's not right, but it's okay

sure not okay

I'm going to make it anyway

Make it anyway

Pack your bags, get up and leave

Don't you dare, back to me boy

It's not right, it's okay

I'm gonna, I'm gonna

Close the door

And leave your key

Rather be alone then unhappy


It's not right, it's okay

I can pay my own rental

Pay my light bill, take care my business

Oh, oh, ooooooh

Oh, get up and leave

Yeah, rather be alone then unhappy

I'm gonna be okay, I'm gonna be alright, I'm gonna be okay, I'm gonna be alright...

Heartbreak Hotel

This is the heartbreak hotel (9x)


You said that you'd be here by nine

Instead you took your time

You didn't think of call me boy

Here I sit trying not to cry

Asking myself why you do this to me


Pre-Chorus:

Since you're not around for me to tell you baby face to face

I'm writing you this letter and this is what I have to say


Chorus:

All I really wanted was some of your time

Instead you told me lies when someone else was on your mind

What you do to me

Look what you did to me

I thought that you were someone who would do me right

Until you played with my emotions and you made me cry

What you do to me

Can't take what you did to me


Now I see that you've been doing wrong

You played me all along

And made a fool of me, baby

You got it all wrong to think that I wouldn't find out

That you were cheating on me

How could you do it to me?


Pre-Chorus

Chorus

This is the heartbreak hotel (9x)


Chorus (2x)

I ain't gon' take it no more (4x)

My Love Is You Love

(Clap your hands all it's alright...)


If tomorrow is judgement day (sing mommy)

And I'm standin' on the front line

And the Lord ask me what I did with my life

I will say I spent it with you


If I wake up in World War III

I see destruction and poverty

And I feel like I wanna go home

It's okay if you're comin' with me


Chorus:

Your love is my love

And my love is your love

It would take an eternity to break us

And the chains of Amistad couldn't hold us


If I lose my fame and fortune

And I'm homeless on the street

And I'm sleepin' in Grand Central Station

It's okay if you're sleepin' with me


As the years they pass us by

We stay young through each other's eyes

And no matter how old we get

It's okay as long as I got you babe


Repeat Chorus

If I should die this very day (very, very day)

Don't cry, cause on earth we wasn't meant to stay

And no matter what people say (really don't matter)

I'll be waiting for you after judgement day


Repeat Chorus

To fade

(I'll say the record's not over yet)




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When You Believe

Many nights we've prayed

With no proof anyone could hear

In our hearts a hopeful song

We barely understood

Now we are not afraid

Although we know there's much to fear

We were moving mountains

Long before we knew we could


There can be miracles

When you believe

Though hope is frail

It's hard to kill

Who knows what miracles

You can achieve

When you believe

Somehow you will

You will when you believe


In this time of fear

When prayer so often proves in vain

Hope seemed like the summer birds

Too swiftly flown away

Yet now I'm standing here

My heart's so full, I can't explain

Seeking faith and speaking words

I never though I'd say


There can be miracles

When you believe (when you believe)

Though hope is frail

It's hard to kill

Who knows what miracles

You can achieve (you can achieve)

When you believe

Somehow you will

You will when you believe


They don't always happen when you ask

And it's easy to give in to your fear

But when you're blinded by your pain

Can't see the way safe through the rain

A small but still resilient voice

Says help is very near


There can be miracles (miracles)

When you believe (oh, when you believe)

Though hope is frail

It's hard, hard to kill

Who knows what miracles

You can achieve (you can achieve)

When you believe

(somehow, somehow, somehow)

Somehow you will, now you will

(I know, I know, I know)

You will when you, when you believe

You will when you, you will when you

Believe, just believe

You gotta believe

Just believe

You will when you believe




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If I Told You That

Chorus:

If I told you that I wanted to see you

And if I told you that I beg to please you

If I told you that I'll always keep you

What would you say

If I told you that


Now tell me how you'd feel if I told you that I have feelings for you

And would it be so wrong to say what's on my mind

I'm sorry I have to

We were friends but with time

What I feel deep inside

For you (for you)

Has changed (has changed)

But I'd give up on love if I thought

That it was untrue (untrue)

For you (for you, baby)

If I told you that (ah-ha)

I wanted (I wanted)

To see you (to see you)

And if I told you that (if I told you)

I beg (to please you)

If I told you that (if I told you)

I'll always keep you (I'll always keep you)

What would you say (if I told you that)


I know that we're just friends

But what if I decide to bring something in

I hope it won't offend the trust we have

Cause I don't want this to end

If you think we will lose what we have

Then I'd just rather stay (rather stay)

The same (the same baby)

Cause I don't wanna choose

Between two of the most precious things to me

(to me)


Chorus

If we take this chance

And extend to each other romance

I hope it would be

The right thing for you and me


Chorus (2x)

Would you be there for me

Could you dare to hold me

Will my feelings leave me

Lonely if I told you



Chorus



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In My Business

Baby I get so many people

Telling me they seen you up in the mall

Are they mistaking

All up on some chick as though I don't exist

What is this


Chorus:

Why they all in our business

It's just too ridiculous

I can't get no sleep

They just keep warning me

Should I believe it

They say I don't need it

Don't think no

I made up my mind

My mind


Honey too many people say you're faking me

They ask what have you done lately

They say we won't last they are predicting

That it's over, it's over


Missy Elliot Solo (2x):

Too many girls they dislike me

Since I got you

They wanna fight me

Cause I'm the chick walking around

With the ring

Tell me why these hoes they don't even like me


Chorus (2x)

Oh boy it's all the love that you're giving

They may call love is what they're missing

That's why they stay up in our business


Chorus



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I Learned From The Best

Did you really think that

I would really take you back

Let you back in my heart one more time

Ohh no no

Did you think I'd still care

That there'd be more feeling there

Did you think you could walk back in my life

So you found you miss the love you threw away

Baby but you found that out too late too late


Chorus:

And so you know the way it feels to cry

The way that I cried when you broke my world in two

Baby I learned the way to break a heart

I learned from the best

I learned from you

Oh baby now

I learned from you


I remember cold nights

Tears I thought would never dry

How you shattered my world

With your goodbye your goodbye baby

Would've sold my soul then

Just to have you back again

Now you are the last thing on my mind

Now you say your sorry

And You've changed your ways

Sorry but you changed you ways too late


Chorus

So when all you've got are sleepless nights

When those tears are clouding up your eyes

Just remember it was you who said goodbye

Who said goodbye


Chorus



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Oh Yes

The day you held me in your arms

I still smell da scent of you

On my dress unbelievable

And you was so masculine

The way I felt youir chest up next to mine

I fell you in my heart

Now I breathe love

You are so amazing

Unbelievable baby

It's you that make me smile

When everything gets crazy

And you the one I love

No other man can faze me

Cause you're in my heart

Every minute, daily

The time you looked into my eyes

I felt like falling in love

And I was mesmerized

Cause it's something you do

That makes me feel thuis way

I can't explain

You're my joy peace and happiness

And you...You are so amazing

Unbelievable baby

It's you that make me smile

When everything gets crazy

And you the one I love

No other man can faze me

Cause you're in my heart

Every minute, daily




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Get It Back

Remember when it all began

We were all in love

Then came your friends telling you when

Your time for me was good enough

I constantly had to compete

With you crew and their schemes

Remembering back in the day

I used to mean everything


Chorus:

(If we could just get it back)

To the way it used to be

(My only wish would be that)

Nothing would change with you and me

(I remember how it was)

And I know that for a fact

(We were oh so deep in love)

If we could just get it back


Now tell me why so many nights you had so much to do

When you said bye sometimes I tried

I tried to make you choose

Now tell me how you can allow

Your boys to control the

The time we shared it was unfair

But now you need to know


(Now if I told you)

That I'm moving on

(Boy what would you do)

Things just ain't the same

(We were supposed to)

Conquer everything, yeah

(Boy let me tell you)

You've got to make a change


Repeat Chorus (2x)

Man's speaking Break


If we could just get it back


Repeat Chorus (2x)



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Until You Come Back

I lost my heart

A long time ago

You made me feel

Like no one had before

Boy you made me love you

Then you walked out the door

See I will not rest

Until you say I'm forever yours


And boy I won't stop at nothing

I won't give you up

And you gotta feel something

I know I will not love again

Until you come back

Come back to my arms

Till you come back to me baby

Until you come back


Don't care how long baby

It's not important to me

Don't care how far

Love's never too far for me

I just might be crazy

When it comes to my heart

But I cannot rest

Until the day we're no longer apart


And boy I won't stop at nothing

I won't give you up

And you gotta feel something

I know I will not love again

Until you come back

Come back to my arms

Till you come back to me baby

Until you come back to me


Nobody plays with my heart

You can't walk away from me no baby

You can run but your heart cannot hide

'Cause he knows you belong in my arms


And boy I won't stop at nothing

I won't give you up

And you gotta feel something

I know I will not love again

Until you come back

Come back to my arms

Till you come back to me baby

Until you come back to me


Till you come back to me baby

Come on home

Come home to me




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I Bow Out

I'm tired of playing this game

And I won't play it no more

And I won't take it no more

Through with being your fool

And I won't do it no more

And I won't, I won't keep up this act

Not for one minute

I'm gonna pull, I'm gonna pull this curtain down


Chorus:

This time I won't play this game

I made a vow to make a change and

I Bow Out (I won't be hanging around baby)

I decline to take the pain and

I resign the masquerade and

I Bow Out (I won't be staying around baby)

I Bow Out


Can't go on with the show

Your just a stage I went through

Now your just fading from view

Time for a change of scene

Guess I'll be taking my leave

I guess I won't, I won't stay in this play

Not for one minute

I gonna make, I wanna make my exit now


Chorus

When your left standing on that stage all alone

Maybe you'll realize

You should have learned to treat me right

And when this final act is finally through

Maybe you'll wish you'd been

The kind of man you should have been

Now watch me say goodbye and walk right out of your life


Chorus (3x)



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You'll Never Stand Alone

If there's a time when the tears should fill your eyes

And you can't see past the shadows

To the sun on the other side

Don't despair because there always will be someone there

Don't lose faith love won't let you lose your way

Because you


Chorus:

You'll never stand alone

I'll be standing by

I'll keep you from the cold

I'll hold you when you cry

I'll be there to be strong

When you can't find the strength inside

And you

You'll always have a home

In these arms of mine

You'll never stand alone

Love is standing by


If there's a day when the rain should find your heart

And you're cold and tired and lonely

And this world has you in the dark

Don't be scared you can just reach for me and I'll be there

Don't lose hope love will see you through you know

Because you


Chorus

Standing by to lift you above all the hurt and pain

Standing by to carry you through all the tears and rain

Reach for me

(I'll be with you)

Oh reach for me baby

(I'll see you through)


See I'll be the one to hold you

The one to show you that


Chorus (2x)

Love is standing by

I Was Made To Love Him

I was born in Newark

Had a childhood sweetheart

We were always hand in hand

He wore hightop shoes and shirt tails

Nip wore a pig tail

I know I loved him even then

You know some disapproved it

They even boohooed it

But I told them time and time again

You know I was made to love him

Build my world around him

Yah! Hey, hey, hey

He's been my inspiration

Showed appreciation

For the love I gave him through the years

Like a sweet magnolia tree

My love blossomed tenderly

My life grew sweeter through the years

I know my baby loves me

My baby needs me

That's why we made it through the years

I was made to love him

Worship and adore him

Yo Say, Hey, hey, hey

All through thick and thin

Our love just won't end

'Cause I love my baby, love my baby. Ah!

My baby loves me

My baby needs me

And I know I ain't going anywhere

I was just a little thang

When that love bug bit me

I had the fever with each passing year

If ocean tumbles

And the whole world crumbles

By his side I'll still be standing there

'Cause I was made to love him

Made to live for him say yeah!

Ah, I was made to love him

Build my world all around him

Say Hey, hey, hey

I love my baby

Nip ain't goin' nowhere

Say Hey, hey, hey

Say Hay, hay, hay

Hey, hey, hey

Oooh hey I love him uhahh

I Love him, I love him

Y'all don't know nothin'

Built my world all around him say

Hey, hey, hey

Ooooh!

Can't cha' tell y'all

Hey, hey, hey

Been my inspiration

Showed my inspiration

Hey, hey, hey
