Open Your Ears Volume Three.

Since I haven't actually had a full Zune Shuffle post..and I like this one..

Fiona Apple is the truth. Just so you know.

1. M.I.A. x U.R.A.Q.T.
"Now could it be that me and he are tighter than JLo in her jeans? Now could it be that me and he and tighter than R.Kelly in his teens? You fucking with my man and you text him all the time. You might've had him once but I got him all the time."
[I never figured out how that was possible.]

2. Nas x Street Dreams
"Holdin gats wasn't making me fat, snitches on my back. Livin with moms, gettin it on, flushin crack down the toilet two sips from bein alcoholic. Nine hundred ninety nine thou from bein rich but now I'm all for it."

3. Wale x The People

4. Common x The Light
Some niggas recognize the light but they can't handle the glare

"Granted we known each other for some time, it dont take a whole day to recognize sunshine"

"Its kinda fresh you listen to more than hip-hop
And I can catch you in the mix from beauty to thrift shop"
[Yes, that one deserved three lines]

5. Lupe Fiasco x Gold Watch
"Firm disbeliever in your punch clock promise"

"I like street fighter two I just really hate Zangeif, only Ken and Ryu I find it hard to beat Blanka. Keep a wee ninja hanging and the UNKLE album banging, if you negative in energy then stay out the vicinity of"

"My most coveted thing is a high self-esteem and a low tolerance for them tellin me how to lean. See the most important parts are the one that are unseen. The wings dont make you fly and the crown dont make you king. Now God dont like ugly, aint to happy bout pretty, I am ignorances enemy so stay out the vacinity of"...

6. Jay-Z x Takeover
"Don't let me do it to you dunny cause I overdo it so you wont confuse it with just rap music." [Only because that whole verse was basically him overdoing it.]

"When I was pushin weight, back in eighty-eight you was a ballerina. I got your pictures I seen ya. Then you dropped "Shook Ones," switch your demeanor. Well - we don't believe you, you need more people"

7. Santogold x Lights Out
"Lights out, shoot up the station. TVs dead, wheres ther to run. Watch everybody come undone."

8. T.I. x ASAP
"Haters wanna stop tip, mad cuz they not tip. Ball every summer so your baby mama jock tip. You don't want no drama pimp, I promise I do not slip."

9. Jill Scott x Can't Explain(42nd Street Happenstance)
"While you were busy loving me I was busy too."

"If you have a nightmare, do you stop dreaming?"

10. Mos Def x Freaky Black Greetings

11. Kanye West x Back To Basics

12. Coldplay x God Put A Smile Upon Your Face
"Where do we go, nobody knows. Don't ever say you're on your way down when God gave you style and gave you grace. And put a smile upon your face."

13. Gorillaz x Don't Get Lost In Heaven
"Don't get lost in heaven, they got locks on the gate. Don't go over the edge, you'll make a big mistake"

"Put me in a cab to suburbia. I just took a line but I wasn't with you. There was more of it there, when I got back home but you had left me,you don't know my soul... You're a whole bad mistake,yeah,you're a whole one..."

14. Chester French x She Loves Everybody
Well she craves affection, so I use protection. And I know she loves me, she loves everybody"

15. Fiona Apple x Mistake
"I'm gonna make a mistake. I'm gonna do it on purpose. I'm gonna waste my time..."

"And when the day is done, and I look back And the fact is I had fun. Fumbling around all the advice I shunned, and I ran where they told me not to run, but I sure had fun. So I'm gonna fuck it up again. I'm gonna do another detour. Unpave my path. And if you wanna make sense. Whatcha looking at me for? I'm no good at math. And when I find my way back, The fact is I just may stay, or I may not. I've acquired quite a taste for a well-made mistake. I wanna mistake why can't I make a mistake?"

All of them don't have lines because...honestly...I wasnt listening to them and I didn't feel like looking for the lyrics.
