Album Twenty One. Hand Me Down Lyrics. You get high 'cause you've got low self-esteem You toy with the boy on the football team I've Seen you all over him just like a rash Come home in bruises but always take him back. Do you love him? Maybe you do, maybe you don't Maybe you will but maybe you won't Do you love him? Maybe you do, maybe you don't Maybe you do. Your heart is like a hand me down Some thing to pass around and around Your heart is like a hand me down Some thing to pass around and around.
Soul and R&B encompasses much of non-sacred African American music. Its reach spans from the early vocal hits by Sam & Dave, to Ray Charles, to the Delfonics and Al Green and all the way to the modern R&B of Beyonce and Usher. The category is united by emotive vocals, hints of funk and, of course, ample doses of pure, impassioned soul.
