Stefflon Don – Precious Heavy Lyrics

[Intro]
Grimez
[Verse 1]
Fuck a nigga bring a bitch round
Let me show him how to stack P
Precious heavy, yeah, we crackin’ drinks
This is everyting that I forseen
Mummy cryin’ that was back when
Steff Don was a likkle youth
Now I’m grown, she don’t cry tears
‘Cause I drop racks, that’s mother care
Payin’ is what they gon’ do
Hearin’ comments, sayin’ shit for likes
I’ma wish those likes paid
Check the page, that’s android
That CCTV footage
Bitch, you need a new phone
How you comment in them shit you don’t own? [Chorus]
Pull up on then they never stick around
Please don’t comapre me to these pussy bitches now
Precious heavy, yeah, we crackin’ drinks
We run the city, ain’t nobody in my lane
Pull up on then they never stick around
Please don’t comapre me to these pussy bitches now
Precious heavy, yeah, we crackin’ drinks
We run the city, everybody know my name
[Verse 2]
Rappers’ bodies gettin’ carried away
Don’t bury them ‘less you’re a minute late
Very blessed when I check my safe
My name ringin’ in every state
5-star on my sheets
40 racks while I sleep
Killin’ niggas and bitches too
Discrimination, I don’t do
Promise to win, I’ll never lose
Fuck a ring, I’m drippin’ juice
No love but self love
Selfless but caught up
Dumyoung ting, torn up
Fuck boys get your money up
Bitches mad ’cause I’m comin’ up
[Chorus]
Pull up on then they never stick around
Please don’t comapre me to these pussy bitches now
Precious heavy, yeah, we crackin’ drinks
We run the city, ain’t nobody in my lane
Pull up on then they never stick around
Please don’t comapre me to these pussy bitches now
Precious heavy, yeah, we crackin’ drinks
We run the city, everybody know my name
[Verse 3]
Time runnin’ out of focus
Slide bitches, mai tai, you haffi go look
If you know my side, you know that I’m with the stuff
Watch it when I ride, don’t compare me, oh
Pull up in the drop top
Mixtape fire, know you had to stop drop
Fuckin’ with my mother, eat your 16 shots
Ting so secure, I don’t need no padlock
Dem could never walk in my shoes
Dem could never get a 1.2
I don’t even lie, just tell the truth
I just tell the truth
Dem could never walk in my shoes
Dem could never get a 1.2
I don’t even lie, just tell the truth
I just tell the truth, mmm

Stefflon Don – Crunch Time Lyrics

bit, need it like a dumpling while I’m coming pee
On your knees (hot one), pretty like Flacko Jodye
Eat this pussy like it’s finger lickin’ chicken on a molies
[Hook]
Bitches steady trippin’, they be hatin’ cause I’m stuntin’
When I pull up they be dippin’ out, these hoes ain’t sayin’ nothin’
Rule number one, never fuck with a Don
Shots to your bun, if I’m coming better run
Bitches steady trippin’, they be hatin’ cause I’m stuntin’
When I pull up they be dippin’ out, these hoes ain’t sayin’ shit
Rule number one, never fuck with a Don
Shots to your bun, if I’m coming better run bitch
[Verse 2]
Get’ em up, lick’ em down, they don’t want these problems now
Get these hoes see me, they see me but they don’t want me round
Keep your crown clown, I’ma done what the bloodclaat
Me nuh talk, I leave fishes swimmin’ in a blood bath
Let’ em marinade then fry ’em until they turn soft
Ejaculate on bitches tell them fi lick the cum off
Who she think she really playin’ with
I’m that kid with no patience, I ain’t playing bitch
Talking lips moving quick but ain’t saying shit
Dark knight, dim the light cause they aging quick
[Hook]
Bitches steady trippin’, they be hatin’ cause I’m stuntin’
When I pull up they be dippin’ out, these hoes ain’t sayin’ nothin’
Rule number one, never fuck with a Don
Shots to your bun, if I’m coming better run
Bitches steady trippin’, they be hatin’ cause I’m stuntin’

Rule number one, never fuck with a Don
Shots to your bun, if I’m coming better run bitch [Intro]
Ayo, It’s crunch time niggas in 9, come get yo dick slime

Government give me your money, cash, I don’t want checks
[Verse]

Ay, heads turn when I enter, got the best furs to your mister
But I want him he ain’t got shit, I’m a big bird not slender
Juice drip, collard greens, dirty money, pussy clean

Stefflon Don – Finesse Lyrics

[Intro]
Don, uh
[Verse]
Bitch, I been finessin’ since the eighth grade
But now I’m gettin’ paid just to show face
If your nigga bummy, tell that nigga skate
Most my bitches hoes but they never fake
Still won’t pay the bill, even if I ate
I don’t pay for meals, I don’t go on dates
But I still get the cake ate
Cake, cake, cake, cake, cake, cake
Toes on my page, livin’ out my case
Block, b-b-blockin’ that same pace
Bitch, I’m pretty, but I’m big parkin’
This ain’t ordinary, got the guards watchin’
This ain’t ordinary, ask my nigga Drake
He told me I’m the realest and them bitches fake
Never play the bench, I don’t play it safe
Don’t cut your nose just to spite your face
I stay livin’ and I’m learnin’ every day
Like I be chillin’ fuckin’ with the real estate
You never set trends if you don’t take risks
This ain’t my opinion, this a practice
[Chorus]
Secure, secure, secure
The bag secure, secure, secure
The bag secure, secure, secure
The bag secure, secure, secure
The bag
I stay livin’ and I’m learnin’ every day
Not everybody wanna see who win the race
I work hard just to lock this
I pray to God that he got this
I stay livin’ and I’m learnin’ every day
Not everybody wanna see who win the race
I work hard just to lock this
I pray to God that he got this

Ariana Grande – sweetener Lyrics

[Chorus]
When life deals us cards
Make everything taste like it is salt
Then you come through like the sweetener you are
To bring the bitter taste to a halt
[Post-Chorus]
And then you get it, get it, get it, get it (ayy)
Hit it, hit it, hit it, hit it (ayy)
Flip it, flip it, flip it
You make me say oh, oh (sheesh, sheesh)
Twist it, twist it, twist it, twist it
Mix it and mix it and mix it and mix it
Kiss it, kiss it, kiss it
You make me say oh, oh (sheesh, sheesh)
[Verse 1]
I like the way you lick the bowl (sheesh)
Somehow your method touches my soul (sheesh, yeah)
It lifts me up to heights unknown (ayy)
So when they ask, “How’s life?” I go (sheesh, sheesh)
[Chorus]
When life deals us cards
Make everything taste like it is salt
Then you come through like the sweetener you are
To bring the bitter taste to a halt

Your mama sent us horoscopes (sheesh)
Had so much fun watching them unfold (sheesh, yeah)
You said she like me, I smiled, I know (ayy)

You make me say oh, oh (sheesh, sheesh)
[Bridge]
And then we lay it back, talk the rest of the night
Things that we can light make me say oh, oh (sheesh, sheesh)
Talking about what you wanna do, whether it’s wrong or right
I am followin’ you ’cause you make me say oh, oh (sheesh, sheesh)
Say, I don’t know what I’d do without you in my life, it’d be so sour
I’m hoping that everybody can experience what we have in ours

When life deals us cards
Make everything taste like it is salt (sheesh, sheesh)
Then you come through like the sweetener you are

Beyoncé – Wake Up (R.E.M Demo) Lyrics

Tell me what you up to
We can leave right now, nigga, you don’t need a duffle
La Perla, provocateur of secrets
How is it a secret if I know you’re gonna peep it? I knew
You knew how to be there, you knew how to treat it
You knew how to keep it, I wanna do more than touch you
I’m tryna turn two single people into a couple
What’s your next month like? Nobody but I do
But you are not a picture, I can’t cut you up or hide you
I’ll get you out my mind, hmm, I try to
Why you in my dreams? I’m happy, happily sleep, yeah
[Chorus]
Before you speak, don’t move
‘Cause I don’t wanna wake up
Wake up, wake up, wake up
I don’t wanna wake up, oh
Wake up, wake up, wake up
You’re such a dream
(You’re such dream)
If you can believe? [Intro]
I don’t wanna wake, wake
[Verse 1]
Excuse me? Your sex
Boy it feels just like a dream to me
Now
[Chorus]
Before you speak, don’t move
‘Cause I don’t wanna wake up
Wake up, wake up, wake up
Don’t wanna wake up, oh
Wake up, wake up, wake up
You’re such a dream
(You’re such dream)
If you can believe? Boy you’re such a dream to me, yeah, yeah
[Outro: Beyoncé & Blue Ivy]
*Baby Noises*
Ma ma, ma ma
(Don’t mess with my baby
You better not mess with my baby) Ooh child, I can stop praying now
That’s life, let’s rewind
To the day when I met you
Throwback
Dear God, how could I forget you? Boy you’re such a dream to me, yeah, yeah
[Verse 2]
Hey there, boy, I love you
I’m feeling like I know you, I can’t help but wanna thug you
I’m watching all these broads trying so damn hard
But I can’t even blame ’em ’cause you’re so irresistible
I want to stand by you, I won’t ever dare to tell
I think I heard some wedding bells (All to yourself)
Is this real? Boy you’re such a dream to me, yeah, yeah
[Bridge]
So to whom
It may concern
Please don’t disturb me
Can’t you see? I see you peeking, don’t wanna hear a peep
Wait
[Chorus]
Before you speak, don’t move
‘Cause I don’t wanna wake up
Wake up, wake up, wake up
Don’t wanna wake up, oh
Wake up, wake up, wake up
You’re such a dream
If you can believe? Um, I love you
Who starts a conversation like that?

Early mornings are pretty special thanks to stained-glass wonders

From painter to glass artistFrench’s glass windows were installed in 1967, prior to the development of the library’s bookshop and cafe, which now feature six pairs and four single-glass windows.Born in Melbourne, French was originally a sign writer then painter before be became widely admired as a glass artist.While working on the windows for the National Library, he was also producing a stained-glass ceiling for the great hall at the National Gallery of Victoria.”The technique that he used was called dalle de verre, which looks very similar to stained glass but it’s actually quite different,” Professor Whiteley said.”It seems to be that French was self taught in the technique.”The dalle de varre process involves working with glass that is about 2.5 to three centimetres thick.”He used a hammer to chip the coloured pieces of glass into the shapes before pouring cement over the top,” Professor Whiteley said.”It’s quite different to the delicate work, by comparison, of working with [traditional] stained glass.”

Much of the labour involved in production was done from French’s studio at Heathcote in central Victoria.And while the techniques of crafting traditional stained-glass windows date back to the ninth and 10th centuries, Professor Whiteley said dalle de varre glass didn’t appear until the 1930s.”Each piece of glass needed to be chipped by hand and arranged,” he said.”All of the techniques were handmade glass processes.”It literally means slabs of glass are set in concrete or mosaic material.”

In the morning, the sun glows warmly through the glass and creates a magical display inside. The National Library is one of Canberra’s most recognisable buildings, thanks in no small part to its stained-glass windows which are a kaleidoscope of colour.Crafted by artist Leonard French, the 16 windows feature blocks of glass embedded in concrete, cut to maximise light refraction.And the result is a series of dazzling patterns that flood the library’s ground-floor cafe and bookshop.Incorporating more than 50 colours, the windows of Belgian and French glass feature motifs of crosses, circles, suns, stars and mandalas.”Early mornings in Canberra are pretty special,” said Professor Richard Whiteley from the ANU Art School.”The way the light is filtered inside because of the lake and the natural environment gives it a great ambience.”

Dr Grace Blakely-Carrol, a curator at the library, said the windows delivered a unique ambience.”The windows have celestial symbols, particularly suns and comets,” she said.”You can also see some of the symbols that Leonard French used in some of his paintings.”He was particularly interested in turtles and mandalas. (ABC News: Penny McLintock)
The library’s design was inspired by architect Walter Bunning’s visit to the Parthenon in Greece.Professor Whiteley said the stained-glass windows celebrated the relationship between architecture and artist.”There’s a unique vision of the architect, and the artist can complement that and still have their own voice.”

The windows were also designed to reduce the amount of light entering what was the main foyer. “The more I look at them, I’m always finding new elements.”The National Library of Australia is celebrating 50 years since it first opened to the public.

“My goal this time is to find out what is the actual name of the refugee campsite where I stayed back in 1977.”With the help of the Northern Territory Archives Service, Ms Lam has been connected with one of the few material pieces of history that links her family to that year.A black-and-white photo shows Ms Lam and her father on the boat that had carried them thousands of kilometres through waters in which many others perished.

Stowed beneath ship’s surfaceHer family’s escape from Vietnam came at their seventh attempt.They had led a wealthy dynasty manufacturing cleaning products in Saigon.”When the communists invaded, it was criminal to be rich,” Ms Lam said.She recalled her family being separated into smaller vessels, hiding among mangroves and waiting from 10:00am until 7:00pm for a boat that would carry them overseas. You have to work to bring money in, not for people to hand money to you’.”They established a family restaurant, navigated Western schooling systems with limited English, and contributed to Australian life among the 98,000 people listed as being born in Vietnam in the 2016 census.Ms Lam’s mother suffered a stroke soon after their resettlement and died several years later.She had never returned to Darwin but Ms Lam believes she would have loved to.”She’d want to see what this looks like, I’m sure.”

_ Photo:
Ms Lam says she enjoyed the friendly, laidback nature of contemporary Darwin. The family was given sleep-inducing medication and stowed beneath the deck, where they remained hidden as they crossed the border towards Singapore.An unforgiving journeyDuring the following week at sea, a fisherman warned the group that Singapore was likely to turn refugees away.So they instead travelled to Malaysia and waited at a refugee camp for a number of weeks.It was there that Ms Lam’s mother, a “very determined woman” who carefully planned their exits and paid in gold for each attempt, purchased a second-hand boat.The family was underprepared for the next leg of their journey to Australia, and a Taiwanese man they encountered on a cargo ship was shocked to find them without so much as a map.Ms Lam’s parents, 11 of her siblings, and an entire other family were on the boat.”He couldn’t believe it — he gave us medication and a map.”

Refugee boats arrived in Darwin Harbour after weeks at sea. “There was a lot of bushland, a lot of Aboriginals sitting in the bushland.”As refugees were welcomed into the country on humanitarian grounds and relocated to major cities, the Lam family found themselves in Brisbane.”I could see that we landed in a place that gave my family the opportunity to restart our lives again,” she said. “Even though we’re wealthy, when you go overseas you have to prepare to do every little job, even cleaning toilets for other people,” Ms Lam recalled her mother saying.”Mum always said, ‘You’re born with your hands. (ABC Radio Darwin: Jesse Thompson)
Getting on with it in AustraliaIn the following years, they did just that. Ms Lam was on board a vessel that moored in Darwin Harbour the following year. Veronica Lam has journeyed north to uncover home truths.Darwin is a city that she barely remembers, but one which holds an important place in her family’s history nonetheless. The first boatload of Vietnamese refugees fleeing communist rule arrived in Australia in 1976; more than 50 boats would ferry 2,100 Vietnamese to Australia in the following five years.

Arrival in DarwinMs Lam was 12 years old when their boat arrived in Darwin after weeks at sea.She remembers feeling fear alongside wonder, being taught her first English word (kangaroo) by a friendly immigration official holding a map of their new home, and being corralled through the humid November air.”I was sitting in the bus and they took us a long, long way before we arrived at the refugee site,” she said. When it arrived they were met with a boatload of people terrified they were about to be caught and a mother having to spit into her baby’s mouth to keep it from going dry.
