My "Anna - Do It On Your Own" Extended Cut

Post by PacMani »

Hi there,

so I was bored last night and made this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GgRTsFjVXz0
Most recent understood lyrics and a download of that extended cut are in the video description.

Does anyone have the lyrics of this song? That would be great :)
I hope you like it. If you have any suggestions or improvement ideas let me hear them.

For those who didn't hear them already, there are links to other extended cuts in the description.

Greetings,
PacMani.

Welcome to the forum. I don't even remember that but it's been a long time since I played GTA2 with the original music.

I like it pretty much and just collect "complete" cuts of it by fans or original sources, together with the lyrics. But the last thing is hard for me since I'm not a native speaker :(

This is what I got yet (some pretty funny and messy stuff came out in some verses). Maybe someone can help me :)

Like on TV, like I'm a movie star,
why can't you be, making it wonderful
why can't you screw, shoot, all night long

Just like a sleaze???, just like a son???
Just like a dustin' follow fucked???
like I'm a movie star,
like I'm a son??? (aha haha haha)

In me is a real woman involved???
and you got to just do it on your own
(own own own own...)

Iiiiii need it to breath (yeah, oh)
just let innocence come
lending ????

Should I away, should I stare,
should I fall, should I care

In me is a real woman involved???
and you got to just do it on your own
(own own own own...)

Just like a sleaze???, just like a son
Just like a son, just like a sleaze???

I adjusted it, I'm not 100% sure it's correct. The underlined parts are difficult to understand.

It's a great song, but you do know what this song implies right? ;)

Nice work on the extending, I did not notice it, it sounded like a correct song.

Woow, thank you very very much! This is almost perfect!
I heard over it with the new lyrics again and think I now hear this:
Like on TV, like in a movie star,
why can't you be, making it wonderful
why can't you screw, shoot, all night long

Just like a scene, just like a show
Just like a gusty follow fucked
like in the movie star,
like in the song (aha haha haha)

and if there's a rhythm involved
and you got to just do it on your own
(own own own own...)

I, I, I, I, I, I needed to breath (yeah, oh)
just like innocence come
London (???) leaves, yeah

Should I away, should I stare,
should I fall, should I care

and if there's a rhythm involved
and you got to just do it on your own
(own own own own...)

Just like a scene, just like a show
Just like a show, just like a scene
like in a movie star,
like in the song

and if there's a rhythm involved
and you got to just do it on your own
(own own own own...)

I, I, I, I, I, I... needed to breath (yeah, oh)
just like innocence come
London (???) leaves, yeah
For the "London leaves" I understand something like "Leading to leave, yeah"... but that's also a bit weird.

Yeah, the song is very... I know what :) like most other GTA songs. In some I even interpreted more than was meant. Like the "I wanna funk" pretty much sounds like something else with a different letter in it. :D

I added this song text to the video.

Maybe... she is not singing "Just like a gusty follow fucked", but "Just liked justified, I'm fucked."

and instead of "London (???) leaves, yeah" it is "Lending needs, yeah.". They sound more fitting.

Put all together:
Anna - Do It On Your Own wrote: Like on TV, like in the movie star.
Why can't you be making it wonderful.
Why can't you screw, shoot, all night long.

Just like a scene, just like a show.
Just liked justified, I'm fucked.
Like in the movie star.
Like in the song.

And if there is a rhythm involved,
and you got to just do it on your own, own, own, own, own...

I, I, I, I, I, I needed to breath, yeah, oh.
Just like innocence come, lending needs, yeah.

Should I wait, should I stare, should I fall, should I care.

And if there is a rhythm involved,
and you got to just do it on your own, own, own, own, own...

Just like a scene, just like a show.
Just like a show, just like a scene.
Like in the movie star.
Like in the song.

And if there is a rhythm involved,
and you got to just do it on your own, own, own, own, own...

Sounds to me like it's "*something* at leeeeeeeast, yeah!". Can't really figure out what "*something*" is, though.
PacMani wrote: Should I away, should I stare,
I think this could be "Should I wait, [...]"

For the "just like a show" part, it sounds more like "soul" (but with no "l" in the end) than "show" to me. I don't know if it's just me but it sounds more like a [ s ] (/səʊ/) phoneme than a [ ʃ ] (/ʃəʊ/). "Just like a scene / Just like a soul" doesn't seem to make that much sense though, but meh.
You just lost the game.

Yeah, the "show" also sounded more like "sou" to me :D But that's no word :( so I stick to show.

About the other suggestions: The ones making most sense if we think about the songs "topic" (lol),
these are the best fitting ones:
"Just liked justified, I'm fucked." - However, there seems to be a weird "a" between "liked" and "justified" ;o
"lending needs, yeah" - Same here though! A weird "a" between "lending" and "needs" :) but it's the first suggestion which has sense :D
"Should I wait" - Of course! She doesn't wanna have the "fun" so early...

Yeah, "should I wait" is way better.

Just heard over the lines

"just like innocence comes
lending needs, yeah"

she is actually obviously comparing something to innocence coming, so she must sing something like
"xxx leaves, yeah"

It also sounds much more like that.
Now I'm just searching for a fitting antinom for "innocence" because I can't understand it.

I don't know it anymore. The current text sounds good, but "leaves" also kinda.

I thought, perhaps we can ask the writer or singer, so I did some google-ing and got first this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Thef ... nyourown-7
Written and produced by C. Conner, performed by Anna Stewart (vocals), S. Ross (guitars, lap steel) and C. Conner (instruments)
I then found that his complete name is Craig Corner: http://gtaforums.com/topic/221761-craig-conner/ and he has a last.fm page: http://www.last.fm/music/Craig+Conner However I'm not sure if it's legit or just a fan page.

There is no trace of Anna Stewart on the web besides being listed here: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0255202/ful ... cl_sm#cast. I could not find more.

I haven't searched for S.Ross (yet).

Some more corrections to the lyrics went in. They're now:

Like on TV, like in the movies style,
why can't you be wicked and wonderful,
why can't you screw shit all night long.

Just like a scene, just like a song,
just like a justified, I'm fucked.
Like in the movies style,
like in the song (aha haha haha).

And if there's a rhythm involved
then you've got to just do it on your own.
(own own own own...)

I, I, I, I, I, I needed to breath, yeah (oh)
just like innocence comes
lending leaves, yeah.

Should I wait, should I stare,
should I fall, should I care.

And if there's a rhythm involved
then you've got to just do it on your own.
(own own own own...)

Just like a scene, just like a song
just like a song, just like a scene.
Like in the movies style,
like in the song.

And if there's a rhythm involved
then you've got to just do it on your own.
(own own own own...)

I, I, I, I, I, I... needed to breath, yeah (oh)
just like innocence comes
lending leaves, yeah.


I can't hear it yet (no sound at work :D) but maybe she sings "pleasuring needs" instead of "lending leaves"?
