JENNY FROM THE BLOCK lyrics


Children grow and women producing
Men go working
Some go stealing
 Everyone's got to make a living

L O X
J. Lo
We off the block this year
 Went from a low to a lot this year
Everybody mad at the rocks that I wear
I know where I'm goin' and I know where I'm from

 You hear LOX in the air
 Yea, we're at the airport out DBlock
 Where everybody air-forced-out
 With a new white T.U. fresh
 Nothin' phony with us, make the money, get the mansion, bring the homies with us
 Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (South-Side Bronx!)
Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (South-Side Bronx!)

From In Living Color to movie scripts
To On the 6 to J. Lo to this headline clips
I stayed grounded as the amounts roll in
I'm real, I thought I told you
I'm real, even on Oprah
That's just me
Nothin phony, don't hate on me
What you get is what you see

Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (South-Side Bronx!)
Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (South-Side Bronx!)

I'm down to earth like this
Rockin this business
I've grown up so much
I'm in control and loving it
Rumors got me laughing, kid
Love my life and my public
Put God first
And can't forget to stay real
To me it's like breathing

Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (South-Side Bronx!)
Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (South-Side Bronx!)

It take hard work to cash checks
So don't be fooled by the rocks that I got they assets
You get back what you put out
Even if you take the good route
Can't count the hood out
After a while, you know who to blend with
Just keep it real with the ones came in with
Best thing to do is stay low, LOX and J.Lo
Act like they don't, but they know
They can't get a penny from the block ,
At the end of the day she's still Jenny from the block.

Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (South-Side Bronx!)
Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (South-Side Bronx!)
Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (South-Side Bronx!)
Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (South-Side Bronx!)

Up on the Road

bougainvillea
     This picture is taken at the side area of Coastal Mall at Paranaque City. It just caught my attention while on a bus going to Baclaran. I have learned that this beautiful Bougainvillea is native to Brazil. This woody shrubby vine is widely cultivated in semi-tropical to tropical regions throughout the world. Bougainvillas can be grown as a container plant as well as in the garden areas. They can be cultivated and enjoyed in climates with cold temperatures and grown indoors in greenhouses and sun rooms. Plenty of bright light is essential for strong sturdy growth as well as for good flowering, temperatures should be about 60 degrees F during the growing and bloom season, hardy from zones 8-b and up. A well drained media is needed for optimal growth as well as a drying out period in-between watering. Bougainvillas can grow quite large filling an area very quickly, they can be pruned, shaped, and respond well to a spring grooming, quite drought tolerant once established. It is also widely cultivated here in the Philippines. Variety of bougainvillea is very abundant. My favorite color is the rose and white ones. (^-^)

Red Field

    I grew up in a farm. Mountains actually. I have loved that country life when I was a kid. I enjoyed tropical weather. But the adventurous side of me asked for more. I wanted to live in the city and I did. When my oldest sister showed interest in getting my younger sister to live with her in Manila, I intervened and volunteered myself.

    I have lived in our beautiful place for 15 years, until I went to the chaotic city life. Eleven years has past and I returned to the farm. This time it's not mountainous and tropical, but a flat area and has warm weather. Very different from what I have grow up with.

    During my first few months here I got interested to this plantation. I've never seen like this. We never grew. We only plant rice and corn there.. And coconuts and bananas or abaca. But not this one. So I took picture and ask about it.
sorghum

     Learned that this are the sorghum used as animal food. And that it is one of the five top cereal crops in the world, along with wheat, oats, corn, and barley (no rice? hmmm) hehehe. When in bloom or ready for harvesting, it looks great and beautiful. Not like rice's golden color, but reddish and stronger one.
