Stevie Wonder--'Superstitious'


Very superstitious, writings on the wall,
Very superstitious, ladders bout' to fall,
Thirteen month old baby, broke the lookin' glass
Seven years of bad luck, the good things in your past

When you believe in things that you don't understand,
Then you suffer,
Superstition ain't the way

Very superstitious, wash your face and hands,
Rid me of the problem, do all that you can,
Keep me in a daydream, keep me goin' strong,
You don't wanna save me, sad is my song

When you believe in things that you don't understand,
Then you suffer,
Superstition ain't the way, yeh, yeh

Very superstitious, nothin' more to say,
Very superstitious, the devil's on his way,
Thirteen month old baby, broke the lookin' glass,
Seven years of bad luck, good things in your past

When you believe in things that you don't understand,
Then you suffer, Superstition ain't the way, no, no, no

NOT Stevie Wonder--'Selfish And Pretentious'

 

So sure you're right, pretentious, think you know it all
Because of you, we're headed for a fall

Seventy-plus and still teenage--in the house of white
His constant idiocy, the never-ending night

When you believe in things that didn't occur at all,
we all suffer,
Selfish pretension ain't ain't the way

So sure you're right, pretentious, an ego ten feet tall
Rid us of our problems, you can cure them all
Keep on spinning daydreams--keep stringing us all along
You want hero worship--that you're never wrong


When you believe in things that didn't occur at all,
we all suffer,
Selfish pretension ain't ain't the way, yeh, yeh

Selfish and pretentious, now we have to pay
Selfish and pretentious, the devil in every way
70 year old baby man, what a throbbing ass
bad shit awaits ahead, good times in the past

When you believe in things that didn't occur at all,
we all suffer,
Selfish pretension ain't ain't the way,

no, no, no
