Radio XXXIXL, side B, track 2: “On Our Own” by Bobby Brown

Bobby Brown - On Our OwnOh, Bobby Brown, do you ever have one of those weeks where you think you’re prepared for it, maybe even prepared that it’s going to kinda suck, but then it ends up sucking even worse than you thought it was going to suck?  Well, this week is shaping up to be one of those kinds of weeks.  The kind of week where you kinda just wanna phone it in.  And while I can’t really phone it in at work (Well, I COULD, Bobby Brown, but I’ve chosen not to.  Going to be re-thinking that particular decision, though.), I don’t know that anyone would hold it against me if I phoned it in on my blog, since we’re really here to listen to some great music, who’re we kidding?  So assuming my week continues on its current downward spiral, I’m probably going to be phoning it in the next few days, Bobby Brown.  Luckily for me, my younger self decided to kind of phone it in taping-wise for the next several tracks, since I recorded several songs I’d already recorded at least once before.  Like this one.  So thanks, younger me, for being so lazy that it stretched forward in time to allow me to be lazy in the futuristic wonder that is 2014.  And sorry I just didn’t have it in me to wax poetic either about you or the Ghostbusters again, Bobby Brown, but you can always go back and read what I wrote about this song already.

“On Our Own”

 If ya want somethin’ done

Ya gotta do it yourself

Ow!
 
Uh!

Yeah, I think this is gonna be another one’a those funky ones

Heart-soul, d-d-dance!

Hahaha

If I was you
And you were me
You wanna be winnin’

If ya want somethin’ bad, yo
You gotta wanna give ya all

‘Cause I believe
So much in we
And no we’re not kiddin’

If ya feel the same as me, yo
Ya gotta wanna take the baaall

Now I fiiind ouuut that nothin’ is given (given)
Don’t know where the cards may fall (may fall)

All I knooow is that weee’ve goootta get it (get it)
We’ve gotta make it on our
Oooown
Now I guess we’re gonna
Have to take control
(All on our ooown)
If it’s up to us
We’ve got to take it home
(All on our ooown)

Now cancha see
That all we need
Ta be a go-getter
Gotta make your own decisions
Gotta go for whatcha knooow

There comes a time
In our lives
Ya wanna be bigger

Gotta keep, keep on pushin’
Gotta learn ta take control, yeah

Now I’ve fooound ouuut that nothin’ is given (given)
Don’t know where the cards may fall (may fall)

All I knooow is that weee’ve goootta get it (get it)
We’ve gotta make it on our
Oooown
Well, I guess we’re gonna
Have to take control
(All on our ooown)
If it’s up to us
We’ve got to take it home
(All on our ooown) Gotta gotta take it home
Gotta gotta gotta take it hoooome

Ow!

Uh!

Heart-soul, d-d-dance!

Too hot ta handle
Too cold ta hold
They call the Ghostbusters and they in control
Had ‘em throwin’ a party
For a bunch of children
While all the while, the slime was under the buildin’
So they packed up, regrouped, got a grip, came equipped, grabbed their proton packs off their backs
And they split
Found out about Vigo
The master of evil
Try ta battle my boys

That’s not legal

(On our own) They’re in control
(On our own) Y-y-ya know it
(All on our oooown)
I said
They’re in
Control
(On our own) Y-y-ya know it
(On our own) Y-y-ya know it
(All on our oooown)

Well, I guess we’re gonna
Have to take control
(All on our ooown) We got, we got, we gooot
We got, we got, we gooot
If it’s up to us
We’ve got to take it home
(All on our ooown)  Too hot ta handle, too cold ta hold
They’re the Ghostbusters and they’re in controool

Well, I guess we’re gonna
Have to take control
(All on our ooown)  Gotta gotta take it home
Gotta gotta take it home
If it’s up to us
We’ve got to take it home
(All on our ooown)  Gotta gotta take it home
Gotta gotta take it hoooooome
(On our own) Ow!
(On our own)
