Sunday Samples 249 (four days late)

November 10, 2011

I think this may be a record on my part. But I am at long last caught up after the Virginia Film Festival; I’ve posted twelve reviews in the last week, and eight the week before that!

So here’s a quickie: Mark Morrison with “Return of the Mack”, from 1996.

Well I tried to tell you so (yes, I did)
But I guess you didn’t know
Aas I said the story goes
Baby, now I got the flow
‘Cause I knew it from the start
Baby, when you broke my heart
That I had to come again
And show you that I’m real

(You lied to me)
All those times I said that I love you
(You lied to me)
Yes I tried, yes I tried
(You lied to me)
Even though you know I’d die for you
(You lied to me)
Yes I cried yes, I cried

(Return of the Mack) It is
(Return of the Mack) Come on
(Return of the Mack) Oh my God
(You know that I’ll be back) Here I am
(Return of the Mack) Once again
(Return of the Mack) Pump up the world
(Return of the Mack) Watch my flow
(You know that I’ll be back) Here I go

So I’m back up in the game
Running things to keep my swing
Letting all the people know
That I’m back to run the show
‘Cause what you did, you know, was wrong
And all the nasty things you’ve done
So baby listen carefully
While I sing my come-back song

(You lied to me)
‘Cause she said she’d never turn on me
(You lied to me)
But you do, but you do
(You lied to me)
All these pains you said I’d never feel
(You lied to me)
But I do, but I do, do, do

(Return of the Mack) Here it is
(Return of the Mack) Hold on
(Return of the Mack) Don’t you know
(You know that I’ll be back) Here I go
(Return of the Mack) Oh little girl
(Return of the Mack) Once my pearl
(Return of the Mack) Up and down
(You know that I’ll be back) Round and round

(You lied to me)
‘Cause she said she’d never turn on me
(You lied to me)
But you do, but you do
(You lied to me)
All these pains you said I’d never feel
(You lied to me)
But I do, but I do, do, do

(Return of the Mack) It is
(Return of the Mack) Come on
(Return of the Mack) Oh my God
(You know that I’ll be back) Here I am
(Return of the Mack) Once again
(Return of the Mack) Pump up the world
(Return of the Mack) Watch my flow
(You know that I’ll be back) don’t you know

(Return of the Mack) Here it is
(Return of the Mack) Hold on
(Return of the Mack) Be strong
(You know that I’ll be back) Here I go
(Return of the Mack) My little girl
(Return of the Mack) Once my pearl
(Return of the Mack) Up and down
(You know that I’ll be back) Round and round
