What Kind of Man / Florence and the Machine (live on The Late Show w/ Stephen Colbert)

I was on a heavy tip
Tryna (trying to) cross a canyon with a broken limb
You were on the other side
Like always, wondering what to do with life
I’d already had a sip
So I’d reasoned I was drunk enough to deal with it
You were on the other side
Like always, you could never make your mind

And with one kiss
You inspired a fire of devotion
That lasted for twenty years
What kind of man loves like this?

To let me dangle at a cruel angle
Oh my feet don’t touch the floor
Sometimes you’re half in and then you’re half out
But you never close the door

What kind of man loves like this?
What kind of man?
What kind of man loves like this?
What kind of man?

You’re a holy fool all colored blue
Red feet upon the floor
You do such damage, how do you manage
Trying back for more?

And with one kiss
You inspired a fire of devotion
That lasted for twenty years
What kind of man loves like this?

What kind of man loves like this?
What kind of man?
What kind of man loves like this?
What kind of man?

But I can’t beat you
Cause I’m still with you
Oh mercy I implore
How do you do it?
I think I’m through it
Then I’m back against the wall

What kind of man loves like this?
What kind of man?
What kind of man loves like this?
What kind of man?

What kind of man loves like this?
What kind of man?
What kind of man loves like this?
What kind of man?

Joy to the World / YMCA Jerusalem Youth Chorus & St. Jean Baptiste Choir (live on The Late Show w/ Stephen Colbert) (Three Dog Night cover)

Jeremiah was a bullfrog
Was a good friend of mine
I never understood a single word he said
But I helped him a-drink his wine
And he always had some mighty fine wine

Singin’ joy to the world
All the boys and girls now
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me

If I were the king of the world
Tell you what I’d do
I’d throw away the cars and the bars and the war
Make sweet love to you

Sing it now, joy to the world
All the boys and girls
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me

You know I love the ladies
Love to have my fun
I’m a high life flyer and a rainbow rider
A straight shootin’ son-of-a-gun
I said a straight shootin’ son-of-a-gun

Joy to the world
All the boys and girls
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me

Joy to the world
All the boys and girls
Joy to the world
Joy to you and me

Devil’s Whisper / Raury

Devil’s Whisper / Raury  (performed live on The Late Show w/ Stephen Colbert)

You better run, run from the devil
You better run, run from the devil
You better hide, hide
Hide from the
Hide from the

Young boy
Trying to rule the world I see
Well, young boy
I can give you everything
Diamonds
Everything you touch can be
Golden
But first you gotta listen to me

I’ll tell the truth, I’ll promise you
This world may frown upon the things I have you do
But I got taste, and I got style
I know the twists and turns to make your life worth,

You better run, run from the devil
You better run, run from the devil
You better run, run from the devil
You better run, run from the devil

My brother you could probably win in a shit talking competition
My compositions the opposition of all the shit that
Got niggas wishing to spit tragic, the shit that get
You deal crack and you spend cash on cement asses
My heart burns in the fire of truth
Got the heat of seven suns in the meteor treatment needed
More niggas burn on WorldStar than 1792
Won’t act like I’m any better, you or me, I am you
We are hate, we are love, as below so above
We got poison everywhere so what’s a war on a drug?
We at war with ourselves, talking war with no guns
So if you had to meet yourself would you go do it a run?
‘Cause I could be MLK, I could be Juicy J
Or a lame on Instagram that shows the world his AK
Fourty seven’s the way, you can follow a stray
At the end of the day, at the end of the day you better (Run!)
Run in some type of direction
‘Cause the people going nowhere are the ones that are flexing
I’m not trying to be a preacher, I was never a reverend
But I can take your ass to church and show you glimpses of heaven you better (Run!)
Run in some type of direction
‘Cause the people going nowhere are the ones that are flexing
I’m not trying to be a preacher, I was never a reverend
But I can take your ass to church and show you glimpses of heaven you better

(You better run, run from the devil)
