Everyone Needs a Little Badu in Their World

Good Wednesday, comrades. I want to share Erykah Badu’s Window Seat with you (it’s been in my head for the last few days). I think it’s worth way more than one play. I am also posting the lyrics, I hope you read them. I love Erykah Badu! 

Window Seat-Lyrics

Hey
Hey
Ohh, ohh, ohhh
Fell in love

[Verse 1]
So, presently I’m standing
Here right now, you’re so demanding
Tell me what you want from me
Concluding, concentrating on my music, lover, and my babies
Make me wanna ask a lady for a ticket outta town

[Hook]
So can I get a window seat?
Don’t want nobody, next to me
I just want a ticket outta town
A look around, and a safe touch down
Can I get a window seat?
Don’t want nobody, next to me
I just want a chance to fly
A chance to cry, and a long bye

[Post Hook 1]
But I, I need you to want, me
I, need you to miss, me
I, need yo’ attention, yes
I need you next me, heh
Oh I, I need someone to clap for me(mm-hmm)
I need your direction

[Bridge]
Somebody say come back
Come back, baby come back
(I want you to need me)
Come back, come back, baby come back (3x)

[Verse 2]
So, out my mind I’m tusslin’
Back and forth ‘tween here and hustlin
I don’t wanna time travel no mo’
I wanna be here, my thinkin
Say, on this porch I’m rockin
Back and forth like Lightnin’ Hopkins
So if anybody speak to Scotty
Tell him, “Beam me up!”

[Hook]

[Post Hook 2]
But I, need you to miss me
I, need somebody come get me
I, need your attention, yes
And I, need your energy, and I do
Ohh, ohh, I, I need someone to clap for me
And I, need your direction

[Bridge]

[Hook]
