Beastie Boys - Time For Livin' Lyrics

Yeah, that's right
It's time to set the record straight

Ain't nobody got to spell it for me
Ain't nobody got to yell I can see
Ain't nobody got the pain I can hear
But if I have to I'll yell in your ear

Time for living
Time for giving [x4]

Ain't nobody to to spell it for me
I said ain't nobody got to yell I can see
I said ain't nobody got the pain I can hear
But if I have to I will yell in your ear

Soul fire
Soul fire
And we ain't got no water
We don't got no water

Time for living time for giving
No time for making up a monster to sell
Time for living time for giving
No time for breakin' out a lie to sell

    alden138 holy crap. Listening on a different TV and I hear them again! Someone on a forum years ago said the vocals were mixed mono and phased in such a way that on certain devices that it cancels out the frequency.

    Gale Force

    Todd Pot do you think they brag to their black friends “ I have one of those really dumb but thinks he’s smart , white guy “ friends ?? Cus that would be hilarious .

    Todd Pot & HeatherMetal

    Gale Force yeah probably.
    On top of giving their white friend a nigga pass.

    Gale Force

    Todd Pot well at least you are knowledgeable about SOMETHING. Because you sure know fuck shit all about music recording . Haha re-Todd

    Todd Pot & HeatherMetal

    Gale Force other than being a total dick what do you get out of hiding on the internet arguing with strangers over semantics on sound and recording?
    How does calling me names and being a complete cunt further your agenda if any?
