Mark Ronson – Crack In The Pearl, Pt. Ii Lyrics (feat. Stevie Wonder & Jeff Bhasker)

[Stevie Wonder]
Cause there’s always a flaw in the diamond
A lightning-fork crack in the pearl
A fault in the rock of the island
And it’s usually shaped like a girl, girl
[Stevie Wonder]
Leave us lost in the rust and the rubble
Nine exits north of Las Vegas, Vegas
Nine exits north of Las Vegas, Vegas
Nine exits north of Las Vegas
[Stevie Wonder]
I was the first one to see her
And you were the first one to fall
Like a half-drunken downhill skier
And she was the oncoming wall
Now I get that it’s all gone awry
A joke I might like to take back
Wipe a bright star from the night sky
Nothing can fill in the black

Mark Ronson – Crack In The Pearl Lyrics (feat. Andrew Wyatt)

In the back room of the El Mago Casino
Under a portrait of Doris Day
You and I
And a pair of C-notes
Soft candy betting hard eight
Not quite how you laid it out for me
When we split up that night, that night
Coming out of the Sunset Marquis
Before you left to deal the fine white
Is this how you pictured it
Is this how you thought it would be
We got right with the mutual problem
That got right between you and me
I told you the girl would be trouble
I said she was going to break us
Leave us lost in the rust and the rubble
Nine exits north of Las Vegas, Vegas
Nine exits north of Las Vegas, Vegas
Nine exits north of Las Vegas, Vegas
Nine exits north of Las Vegas

Mark Ronson – On The Run Lyrics

Streets are spawn and most of Mark Ronson
Call the fire chief to inspect the arson
Y’all got problems, Brooklyn is in the buildin’
We built the buildin’
Easy to touch but it’s hard to hold
Easy to meet but it’s hard to know
Paste this one across ya domes and spread it out all across the globe
Heat it up and keep ‘em on dey toes
I’m like the diamond in the mind, I was born to glow
Drop Paul on or off the roll
Freak daddy stroke long and slow, I break ‘em down type strong, then blow
Heading right back to B-R-O, okay L-Y and homo wild porridge
Streets without mercy, nights without silence
Lee without skill is like Gars without science
Jake without sirens, life without dyin’
I’m hot without tryin’, ya heard it so now buy it
Joint come on, you start whinin’
Streets are spawn and most of Mark Ronson (It’s the M-O-P, we gotta!)
Brooklyn is in the buildin’, you got problems
(Ma friendly I have you)
Whole world from the native to the foreign, I’m up on it
I’m one hundred percent nigga, first fam’ to owe me that’s behind me
We’ll f*ck up a whole city like Rudy Giuliani, you plastic
You don’t wanna go at it, so (stop)
You ain’t ready for the aftermath, the matics are (pop)
I wandering with Y-H from the tri-state, ya violate
I just need to go _____ prostate
It’s the M-O-P
And we on the run for real, from the left to the ten
I bin hearin’ you holla (gangsta) for fifteen years now
But when you went, well the shit went down
Come on now
We rugged rap singin’
Rob niggas for prattling and keep their rings
Tell your man, Bill did it he, he reeled with it, killed with it
Little pissed off homie take the loss, deal wid it
While y’all get it goin’, we’ll get it done
A million and one, ma friendly, I had you faggots on the run
Streets are spawn and most of Mark Ronson (It’s the M-O-P, we gotta!)
Brooklyn on the premises, you got problems
Ma friendly I have you
Whole world from the native to the foreign, I’m up on it
Yo, Ron Pharrell Pharell, M-R-M-D (it’s the M-O-P ma nigga!)
You know what I’m sayin’
I wanna fly in the sky, let my lyric carry me
I’m gonna fly, fly, fly, fly
We have em’

Mark Ronson – Intro Lyrics

We gotta Rollin rollin round
Brooklyn is in the building you got probl-
Freeway on the verse is a monster, but I needed a hug so I called Nikka Costa
I know you feelin’ my rosta
And my name got a buzz, so here come the fuzz Back down to J-A
International affair
Rollin rollin round, streets are spawned and most of Mark Ronson
It’s the M-O-P! Self. Damn. What?! (yeah) You need to set this shit up (alright) by your God. (what?) Yo Mark? (I got you Saig’ let’s do it)
[Mark Ronson]
One day I get a call on the phone, Silvia rung, she like my technique, saw me rockin’ them domes
She said here’s a half a mil make some hits of your own
First stop Kentucky where they got me real crunk
Back down to Charlin we wallin’
Ghostface and Trife the records all pausin’
West west for hooks make D-O double G say, ooh wee
Now we back up in the disco, I heat it up in the booth like Crisco,
Put your rollerskates on let your hips go
Couple days later sounds from Jamaica, show off with the track and he said I’ll take her! This is a banger
Yo check this out
I be lord Saig’
I’m chillin’ with Mark Ronson
This is his first album
He got special guests and fly motherf*ckers
Do you know what? [Saigon] (Mark Ronson)
Oh Shit!

Mark Ronson – Tomorrow Lyrics

I kinda like that
Now in most places when you wake up when the sun goes down people usually frown but
When you jumpin’ off it usually doesn’t make a diff-diff-difference
And since me and you is the hottest things in here we gon’ get down and dance dance spin you around like Fred Astaire
I recognize all day and night
But tomorrow I got the day off (up late and I feel alright)
I’ve waited for this all week long
Wake up all my friends and we blast off every tone
I’m gonna be up all night
Cause I don’t have to work tomorrow
Llegamos hasta las ocho
Wake up as the sun goes down
The new night is just beginning
And we’ll keep dancing ’til tomorrow
Tonight I got almost infinite time
To love until I’m good and to dance until I’m high
Without a worry on my mind
Without a worry on my mind
Cause I can do my thing ’til the sun begins to shine
I’m gonna be up all night
Cause I don’t have to work tomorrow
Llegamos hasta las ocho
Wake up as the sun goes down
The new night is just beginning
And we’ll keep dancing ’til tomorrow
Isn’t it funny how the moon can always look-look different than the, different than the night before
When you saw this, when we movin’, move again and it’s [?] standing up than standing still but all well’s well
Equal destiny, feed the hunger, you know I want ya
And I propose [?], make your toes tap, [?] work, lose that, [?]
Tonight I feel free, I’m free up tomorrow, whatever it brings
Ooooh, ’cause when tomorrow ends, and it starts again
Another night’s to follow
So follow me yeah, and never stop
I’m gonna be up all night
Cause I don’t have to work tomorrow
Llegamos hasta las ocho
Wake up as the sun goes down
The new night is just beginning
And we’ll keep dancing ’til tomorrow
I’m gonna be up all night
Cause I don’t have to work tomorrow
Llegamos hasta las ocho
Wake up as the sun goes down
The new night is just beginning
And we’ll keep dancing ’til tomorrow

Red Wanting Blue – My Name Is Death Lyrics

I got a million weapons and more ways to use em
From nuclear power to drugs and boozin
But my favorite just might be the element of surprise
I whisper hey there fellas my name is Death
So when you see me coming better hold your breath
Cause I’m your last breath, I’m your sweet retreat
I’m the baddest motherf*cker you will ever meet
I’m free to come and go as I please
I wear the seven deadly sins upon my sleeve
I’m dying to meet you now
I got a handshake you’ll never forget
And I mean no disrespect
But if you see me comin, better run
Cause my name is Death
My name is Death
My name is Death
My name is Death And I shot more men in Reno than he ever did. Hey there fellas my name is Death
So when you see my comin better hold your breath
Some call me the repo man
Cause I seem to collect wherever I am
I’m often called the Big Finale
I got a tendency for bringin the curtain down
And I can’t help my reputation proceeds me
Like the clouds before a storm you’ll run for cover believe me
And I start every conversation the same
Sayin hey there fellas my name is Death
So when you see me coming better hold your breath
Cause I’m your last breath, I’m your sweet retreat
I’m the baddest motherf*cker you will ever meet
I’m free to come and go as I please
I wear the seven deadly sins upon my sleeve
I’m dying to meet you now
I got a handshake you’ll never forget, my friend
I’m the end, my name is Death
Some say that I’m all work and no play
I just got a knack for taking peoples breath away
It’s not to say exceptions can’t be made
When the Stones wrote me a song I cut em a break
And I can’t help that I’m dressed best in black,
Even better than the late, great Johnny Cash.

Mark Ronson – Bout To Get Ugly Lyrics

(oooohhhh)

Tell ya right now it’s bout to get ugly

Tell me whatcha really want
For me to miss my plane
Stay in NY and do it again
Tell me whatcha really want
Rock stars, electric guitars
Baby who’s pullin’ your strings
Tell me whatcha really want
The DJ in the booth
Thinking that we not playin the truth

(Going to get ugly right now,)

But now its gon’ be
Blonde hair blue eyes

She the queen of the stone age
Rhymefest

Get your motor running
Head out on the highway

You know we shot till I die
And I’m lovin’ the spot
But when I’m up in NY they say the clubbin is hot
They say
You could meet a broad
Take her home on the spot
And that broad could get a broad
Bring ’em home and just watch (Yes!)
They say Club Cheeta’

We can hit central fly
Long as the chicks is fly
I need some head no time to waaaaaste

They said Ronson
Step in the club with one hand on mah Johnson
That Midwest attitude gettin’ ’em respondin"
Talkin bout "Ohh his accent is so charmin’"
Yeah, you wanna dance chick lets go
Glowsticks, lollipops, right foot, left toe
Looked around the room

Slow it down now, we goin downstairs

With the pretty Puerto Rican girls around here (hey baby)
I know its everyday for you

Tell me whatcha really want, look at how lovely
What they don’t know it’s bout to get ugly
What they don’t know it’s bout to get ugly
Right now it’s gonna get ugly
Tell me whatcha really want, look at how lovely

DJ throwin’ out the pity part that’s right (No shirt on)
Hey playa what that is, the White Stripes?

2Pac – Secretz Of War (Original Rules Version) Lyrics

Secrets of muthafuckin’ war, live on Death Row, BITCH! Like Sun Tzu or Machiavelli, the secrets of war
The art of combat, bustin’ will never fail me
Now Rule 1: Follow yo’ enemies and peep his weakness
Constitute while he’s asleep and make the game deeper
Rule 2: Locate his crew, and peep the things they do
Now get some infra-red beams and waste them niggas too
Rule 3: Let’s find a place where they rest they head
You jealous bastards make caskets out ya comfy beds
Rule 4: Now peep the secrets of war
I got surveillance on muthafuckas beware of my forty-four
Rule 5: Right before you bustas die
Let you look me inside my eyes say ya good-byees
Then Rule 6: Witness the death of a trick
He was a coward from day one, and died like a bitch, see BIIATCH
Hahahahahaha
[Hook: 2Pac]
We bust, if we must, plus we handle business
If you jealous niggas fuck with us
(you know what time it is)
Secrets of war
We bust if we must, plus we handle business
If you jealous niggas fuck with us
(Put your hands on ya, hands on ya)
Secrets of war
[Verse 2: Hussein Fatal]
I diffuse troops with interviews and they metabolism
Sure mad and I’m snappin on rappers actin’ they stacks is wit’ ’em
Expose you like spades, who the fuck out they heart
I pull your projects apart and find more ism than narcs
We play parks and side streets, keepin’ it 9 to 5 B
Last week plan is jump to 21 jump street
Poisonous led, spread ya legs on the rake
Or I’m gettin’ mine feel about 29 that’s sittin’ on the ledge
This ain’t the place to creep, so don’t be practicin’
How to get my niggas on the block, when you think we sleep
No I don’t think ya know our styles, you ain’t got shit I wreck
Mechanic will have ’em empty like them 7th ave projects
You half way crooks, ya guys are scared to step foot and look fast
On the strength they can get hit up quick or their shit took fast
I smile, and I’ll commitin’ murder, money live
Pager 325, on some shit you never fuckin’ heard of
[Hook: 2Pac]
Here we go, secrets of war
We bust if we must, plus, we handle business
If you jealous niggas fuck with us
Secrets of war (y’all know what time it is)
We bust if we must, plus, we handle business
If you jealous niggas fuck with us
(Put your hands on ya, hands on ya)
[Verse 3: Yaki Kadafi]
Nowadays with all these fast cash tendencies
Yo straight up, they got me lookin’ eye to eye, with all my enemies
Spottin’ almost plottin’, claimin’ to be a fuckin’ friend of me
Triple connections, Two TECs sittin’ shot gun up in the Lexus
Ready to release some ripples in a nigga mid-section
With bullets that’s hollow, rules to follow crews get swallowed down wit’ the clowns
Get drowned like deuce deuce bottles
We clique gettin’ major, clappin’ glasses, spittin’ razors
It’s insane how I live, it’s unexplained cross behavior
Streets of war
[Hook: 2Pac]
We bust if we must, plus, we handle business
If you jealous niggas fuck with us
Secrets of war (y’all know what time it is)
We bust if we must, plus, we handle business
If you jealous niggas fuck with us
(Hands on ya, hands on ya)
[Verse 4: Kurupt]
I’ve seen it over, and over, no win sit-yay-tions
The end, the end of gladiations so now they facin’ (uh)
They faced with metaphoric phrases hysteria (uh huh)
Engages the death toll to spread like malaria
What I can cock and stop thoughts from circulatin’ through ya head
In the form of writer’s block and spread like a plague (hm)
I break, batter and bruise neck, arms and legs
In my profession, my thoughts conceal weapons (uhh)
Gettin’ ready to drop the bomb like the B-1
Ya 145 pound rhymes and mines a 3 ton
Concoctions, mystic can spot the gator
Before ya get a dosage of the greatest rhyme creator
In this existence relax and explore the scene
I get this shit pumped the fuck up like morphine
And uh, and uh, and uh
[Outro: 2Pac]
Hahahahehehehe, be-itch
Secrets of muthafuckin’ war
(We bust, if we must, plus, jealous niggas fuck wit’ us)
Y’all don’t even understand it
(secrets of war, we bust if we must, plus, jealous niggas fuck wit’ us)
Secrets of war
And all you lil’ young ass souljahs
You play this shit back about 50 times
You’ll have enough game to roll up to the club or somethin’ (we thuggin’ be-itch)
Teach these bitches a lil’ somethin’, you know what I mean? Hahahahahehehehehe
You niggas crazy
Well that was Kurupt
Fatal, Felony
And ‘Pac
That nigga Johnny J on the beat so
You know it’s thug life Play this song
[Intro: 2Pac]
Secrets of war
Get your pen and pads out, you lil’ young ass muthafuckas
Alright now, Fatal-n-Felony, you know what time it is
Kingpin Kurupt, with ‘Pac
Put your hands on ya, hands ya
Get y’all niggas up
Roll with the secrets now
Secrets of war
Put your hands on ya, hands on ya
Time to roll with the secrets now
Secrets of war
Put your hands on ya, hands on ya
Peep it
Check it
[Verse 1: 2Pac]
My melody is music that’s corrupt as a felony
Lethal weapon rebelling, so dope that niggas inhaling me, uh!

Smoove L – Turn Left Turn Right Lyrics

Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Gang gang gang gang
She got a body like Nicki
Ooh baby
Give me the addy then I’m popping up
Once I get the location, turn left, turn right
Mm, then I’m pulling off

She like a nigga who pockets be bigger
A vet with the strokes be making her thicker
And do what he want, and do what he want (yeah yeah)
Baby who f*cking with me, ain’t no competitor
Shitting on opps, getting this guap, I’m way ahead of them (yeah yeah)
She got a nigga and I got a bitch, it ain’t no telling tho
I’m feeling very elite, niggas know I got the streets
I’m married to fashion

I’m hearing she got a body like Nicki, she got a body like Rih Rih
But none of that matter if the p*ssy is wack (on gang)
If your p*ssy trash bitch I’ma spit on ya back
If it’s not wet I’m on to the next
I’m too lit of a nigga I can’t be attached

We gone pull up and end the whole litty night
Boo ba I’ma drop his ass boo ba I got the bag
I gotta chill where my niggas at, the whole gang eat I break bread
Yeah we be arguing and shit but it would not be about a bitch

Once I get the location, turn left turn right
Mm, then I’m pulling off

She like a nigga who pockets be bigger
A vet with the strokes be making her thicker
And do what he want, and do what he want (yeah yeah)
Baby who f*cking with me, ain’t no competitor
Shitting on opps, getting this guap, I’m way ahead of them (yeah yeah)
She got a nigga and I got a bitch, it ain’t no telling tho
I’m feeling very elite, niggas know I got the streets

Milan Stankovic – Pablo Lyrics (feat. Buba Corelli & Jala Brat)

Jala Brat & Buba Corelli]
[Uvod: Jala Brat]
Imperia! U-je-je
Pam-pam-pam
[Strofa 1: Buba Corelli, Milan Stanković]
Bolje da menjamo teme, da ne bi menjali poze
Nije mesto ni vreme, a kazne su rigorozne
Pogledi puni treme, nose me do nervoze
Dok vodi me u probleme, bolest bez dijagnoze
S tobom sam na metar od bola
Ti si kô kremen na litrima etanola
Gori do temelja, leti iz šteka lova
Pare mi dođe kô Tony manola
[Refren: Milan Stanković]
Zbog nje valjô bih kô Pablo, samo da joj kupim sve
Zbog nje valjô bih kô Pablo, samo da joj kupim sve
Zbog nje valjô bih kô Pablo, samo da joj kupim sve
Pablo, ej-je, a-a-a-a
[Post-Refren: Jala Brat, Buba Corelli]
Zbog nje sam luđi, ona mami na to, mami na to, ona me mami na to
Zbog nje sam luđi, ona mami na to, mami na to, ona me mami na to
Zbog nje sam luđi, ona mami na to, mami na to, ona me mami na to
Zbog nje sam luđi, ona mami na to, mami na to, ona me mami na to
[Strofa 2: Jala Brat]
Na meni Gucci pullover, novi džip, džep pun love
A juče nisi znala ko je dečko kojeg bi sve među noge svoje
Ten taman ima, mami kô niko nikad
Kola rentana, s njima nikad nećeš je imat
Sipa piće, telefonira, voli da folira
A moj Rollie ispoliran, obori je, demolira
Ne mogu da izoliram emocije, kriziram

Such line items aren’t typically calculated into Kurzarbeit.The program also requires the right combination of factors to prompt employers to apply, such as an “exogenous” market shock that appears temporary, and a skilled-worker shortage that makes it difficult to fill positions.So far, those factors have neatly lined up.

Youssria Awad plays with her daughters in their home on June 14, 2020 in Khartoum, Sudan, where nearly 87% of women between 15 and 49 years old are estimated to have undergone a form of female genital mutilation. Among high school classmates, she was “the abnormal one” for not getting cut. She remembers feeling angry. Ms. She was maybe 5 1/2 or 6 years old. Ali and others like her might have the law on their side. Ali underwent FGM in Djibouti at age 7. Some condone the practice, others work to eliminate it, and others consider it irrelevant to religion.Mohammed Hashim al-Hakim, a Sudanese Muslim cleric who opposes FGM, said religious leaders must confront attempts to put a veneer of religion on a custom largely rooted in culture.The practice, he said, predates Islam and crosses religious lines. Some of Egypt’s top Islamic authorities have said FGM is forbidden.Still, a 2015 government survey found that 87% of Egyptian women between the ages of 15 and 49 had undergone FGM, though the rate among teens did fall 11 percentage points from a 2008 survey.Reda el-Danbouki, executive director of the Women’s Centre for Guidance and Legal Awareness, said there have been cases where judges handed down minimum sentences on doctors who broke the law, giving the impression doctors can keep doing so with impunity.As Sudan’s law is implemented, there is the risk that FGM will go underground, said Othman Sheiba, secretary general of Sudan’s National Council for Child Welfare. A rights defender, she spoke on condition she not be identified by name because of the sensitivity of her work.The practice of FGM, she argued, is interwoven with a patriarchal mentality that connects a man’s sexual pleasure to a woman’s pain and exerts control over women.”Customs, traditions, and culture are much stronger than written laws,” she said, adding that anti-FGM campaigners need to engage men more.Neighboring Egypt shows how difficult it is to end the practice. The opinions of religious leaders run the spectrum. She armed her child with a plan: Run to a nearby police station.Now 35, the daughter wonders if the police would have helped.

A severe kidney infection – a complication from the procedure – almost killed her at 11, she said.”I lost the concept of innocence,” she said. She refuses to carry out FGM on her children. “It’s an issue related to our traditions and the Sudanese culture.”Like many in Sudan, Ms. Ali even feared her mother would have someone commit it on her daughter while she was at work. “Those are the kind of things that we need to be celebrating because that was a part of democracy coming to Sudan.”Although she lauds the move, Kawthar Ali is not celebrating yet.

Russian voters approved changes to the constitution that will allow President Vladimir Putin to potentially hold power until 2036, but the weeklong plebiscite that concluded Wednesday was tarnished by widespread reports of pressure on voters and other irregularities.With three-fourths of all precincts counted, 77.6% voted for the constitutional amendments, according to election officials.For the first time in Russia, polls were kept open for a week to bolster turnout without increasing crowds casting ballots amid the coronavirus pandemic – a provision that Kremlin critics denounced as an extra tool to manipulate the outcome.A massive propaganda campaign and the opposition’s failure to mount a coordinated challenge helped Mr. Prizes ranging from gift certificates to cars and apartments were offered as an encouragement, voters with Russian passports from eastern Ukraine were bused across the border to vote, and two regions with large number of voters – Moscow and Nizhny Novgorod – allowed electronic balloting.In Moscow, some journalists and activists said they were able to cast their ballots both online and in person in a bid to show the lack of safeguards against manipulations.Kremlin critics and independent monitors pointed out that the relentless pressure on voters coupled with new opportunities for manipulations from a week of early voting when ballot boxes stood unattended at night eroded the standards of voting to a striking new low.In addition to that, the early voting sanctioned by election officials but not reflected in law further eroded the ballot’s validity.Many criticized the Kremlin for lumping more than 200 proposed amendments together in one package without giving voters a chance to differentiate among them.”I voted against the new amendments to the constitution because it all looks like a circus,” said Yelena Zorkina, after voting in St. Alexander Zemlianichenko

Putin’s supporters were not discouraged by being unable to vote separately on the proposed changes. President Vladimir Putin has been in power for over two decades – longer than any Kremlin leader since Soviet dictator Josef Stalin. Petersburg. Putin’s push to hold the vote despite the fact that Russia has thousands of new coronavirus infections each day reflected his potential vulnerabilities.”Putin lacks confidence in his inner circle and he’s worried about the future,” Mr. He argued that resetting the term count was necessary to keep his lieutenants focused on their work instead of “darting their eyes in search for possible successors.”Analyst Gleb Pavlovsky, a former Kremlin political consultant, said Mr. “He wants an irrefutable proof of public support.”Even though the parliament’s approval was enough to make it law, the Russian president put his constitutional plan to voters to showcase his broad support and add a democratic veneer to the changes. Putin cinches term extension to 2036 in disputed vote

Election officials say 78% of Russians voted to extend President Vladimir Putin’s term limits to 2036. Petersburg staged one-person pickets and police didn’t intervene.Several hundred opposition supporters later rallied in central Moscow to protest the changes, defying a ban on public gatherings imposed for the coronavirus outbreak. Those proposals stoked speculation he might seek to become parliamentary speaker or chairman of the State Council when his presidential term ends in 2024.His intentions became clear only hours before a vote in parliament, when legislator Valentina Tereshkova, a Soviet-era cosmonaut who was the first woman in space in 1963, proposed letting him run two more times. Putin first proposed constitutional changes including broadening the powers of parliament and redistributing authority among the branches of government. “How can people vote for the whole thing if they agree with some amendments but disagree with the others?”Mr. Taisia Fyodorova, a retiree in St. Plummeting incomes and rising unemployment during the outbreak have dented his approval ratings, which sank to 59%, the lowest level since he came to power, according to the Levada Center, Russia’s top independent pollster.Moscow-based political analyst Ekaterina Schulmann said the Kremlin had faced a difficult dilemma: Holding the vote sooner would have brought accusations of jeopardizing public health for political ends, while delaying it raised the risks of defeat. Petersburg, said she voted yes “because I trust our government and the president.”In a frantic effort to get the vote, polling station workers set up ballot boxes in courtyards and playgrounds, on tree stumps, and even in car trunks – unlikely settings derided on social media that made it impossible to ensure a clean vote.In Moscow, there were reports of unusually high numbers of at-home voters, with hundreds visited by election workers in a matter of hours, along with multiple complaints from monitors that paperwork documenting the turnout was being concealed from them.At the same time, monitoring the vote became more challenging due to hygiene requirements and more arcane rules for election observers.The Golos monitoring group pointed out at unusual differences between neighboring regions: in the Siberian republic of Tyva over 73% voted in the first five days, while in the neighboring Irkutsk region, turnout was about 22% and in the neighboring republic of Altai, it was under 33%.”These differences can be explained only by forcing people to vote in certain areas or by rigging,” Golos said.Observers warned that the methods used to boost turnout, combined with bureaucratic hurdles that hindered independent monitoring, would undermine the vote’s legitimacy.”There is a big question about the results of this vote,” Mr. Loading… Putin get the result he wanted, but the plebiscite could end up eroding his position because of the unconventional methods used to boost participation and the dubious legal basis for the balloting.The amendments that would allow Mr.

Ilaka tera billa ilaka mera Ilaka tera billa ilaka mera Ilaka tera billa illa khatra Ilaka tera ille bille khatrnaak bole Chala tu bhed chaal Zyada kuch nahin pata tujhe Main gayab dedh saal Thoda bahut hi pata mujhe Badaya kon tujhko Mic mujhko wapas dede Paraya dhong kar ke Faayda nahin hai na bete
Ab baat karun main Yahan se chabbis saal pehle Hua tha janam jiska Riot wale mahaul mein Kiya jo fard ne shinaakhat Wo hi maahir hai Aman aur shanti jahan hai Wahaan zaahir hai
Hogi tabaahi khud bhi chahta to fir jaahil tu Suna main ek allahek rab ka ek bhakt tu Sulah main pahle karta lafda nahin main nekbhakt hu Subah mein saadhna nahin kaatna mera jeb cut tu

Chaar baat kar bethhke kahani meri Adhi jhooth saaf sach se pare arey re Laat ghoos khaake bachpan se deewane bane Laathi charge haalat kaafi charge reh re
Maafi chahre dushman saare chahre sath hone 31, 7, 17, 5 leke 601/2 hile Bahut hateli dekhe aaj saare kya karrele Time waste banda dhandha sab ko jail ho gayeli Nich harkat karke ladke faachat kar dere
Dhoom dhaam karna shadi to udhaar lere Soom saam raste sabse khatri le reh re Ek page do dost aake taali dere Racist kuch log bhai ko gali dere
Mind jam bread sauce chai bahaduri mein Time kamcase 100 fukat ab nahin reh re Record label switch apun table call hi lere Ek aur body mere..
