Keith David - Friends on the Other Side

Don't you disrespect me little man
Don't you derogate or deride
You're in my world now, not your world
And I got friends on the other side
(He's got friends on the other side)

That's and echo gentleman
Just a little something we have here in Louisiana
A little parlor trick, don't worry

Sit down at my table, put your mind at ease
If you relax it will enable me to do anything I please
I can read your future, I can change it 'round some too
I look deep into your heart and soul

You do have have a soul, don't you, Lawrence?
Make your wildest dreams come true

I got voodoo, I got voodoo
I got things I didn't even try
And I got friends on the other side
(He's got friends on the other side)

The cards, the cards, the cards will tell
The past, the present and the future as well
The cards, the cards, just take three
Take a little trip into your future with me

Now you, young man are from across the sea
You come from two long lines of royalty
I'm a royal myself on my mother's side
Your lifestyle's high but your funds are low
You need to marry a little honey who's daddy got dough

Mom and dad cut you off, huh, playboy?
Now y'all better get hitched but hitching ties you down
You just want to be free, hop from place to place
But freedom takes green

It's the green, it's the green, it's the green you need
And when I look into your future it's the green that I see

On you little man, I don't want wanna waste much time
You've been pushed 'round all your life
You've been pushed 'round by your mother
And your sister and your brother
And if you was married you'd be pushed 'round by your wife

But in your future the you I see
Is exactly the man you always wanted to be
Shake my hand, come on boys
Won't you shake a poor sinner's hand?

Yes, are you ready?
(Are you ready?)
Are you ready?

Transformation central
Transformation central
Transformation central
Transformation central

Transformafication central, can you feel it?
You're changing, you're changing, you're changing alright
I hope you're satisfied, but if you ain't don't blame me
You can blame my friends on the other side

You got what you wanted
What you want's what you get
