Song Lyric Sunday: Ain’t No Sunshine

For this week’s Song Lyric Sunday, the prompt forced writers in a particular direction, urging them to find a song, in either the title or lyrics, containing one of the words: come, go, leave, or stay. Anderson “The Spider” Silva, a former UFC Champion who electrified audiences with his style, moved in a manner that appeared to come directly from the matrix. Before fans witnessed Silva’s surreal striking and submissions, everyone was well aware of the storm brewing when “Ain’t No Sunshine” by DMX drew the Brazilian native from the shadows backstage and into MMA’s brightest light.

Lyrics to “Ain’t No Sunshine”:

It’s dark and hell is hot

Ain’t no sunshine when it’s on

Only darkness every day

Ain’t no sunshine when it’s on

Cuz when its on, ya niggaz gonna be gone

Every time cuz we don’t play

“Who turned out the lights?”

Is what niggaz be sayin’

Now you don’t wanna fight

But ya niggaz be playin’

Thinkin’ its alright keep playin with that road

And you gonna know the night

When you layin in that cold

Dirt gettin’ tossed in your grave

Now it’s all over

Preacher said “You was brave”

But now it’s all over

You just one of the many, plenty I done gave it to

(*boom*) Ain’t no savin ‘you

No matter how many tears your moms’ cried

Ain’t gon bring your ass back

Plus in hell, you gon fry

Why? But now the only 2 releative questions

Is “Do we bury him or burn? Any suggestions?”

Either way, you up out of here for good

Now when niggaz mention you name

They knockin’ on wood

Did I, get my, point across?

Another body on the shotte

Another joint I toss


Ain’t no sunshine when it’s on

Only darkness every day

Ain’t no sunshine when it’s on

Cuz when its on, ya niggaz gonna be gone

Every time cuz we don’t play [Repeat 4x]

There ain’t no sunshine

When the Dark Man comes out

And I want mine

So I plan to keep my gun out

We got four 9’s

So niggaz run in and run out

But I bust mine

Cuz I’d like to hear some shots

+Get At Me Dog+ niggaz know how its goin dizzy

When it comes to that flow, I gets busy

Who is he? Dark Man of the unknown

(GRRR ARF) One dog, one bone

Now who ain’t goin home? Looks like you

You hear strike 1, talkin’ shit, strike 2

Won’t be a strike 3, cuz I don’t play fair

I’ma look you in your eye

While he hit you from the rear

Be like “Yeah, holdin’ you up cuz you fallin'”

The Lord ain’t comin’ till niggaz stop callin’

You was ballin’ a minute ago

In it for dough

Till it was “Yo, I swear to God, I didnt know”


And I know, I know, I know, I know, I know

Whatchu think you gon get

Fuck around with my dough

Just so it ain’t no mistakes, this is my show

One (one) two (two) three (three) here I go

Your shit is quick and your shit is sleek

But this shit is thick and when you hear this shit

Damn right I can finish shit

If you caught that verse without a rewind you can see mine

But you be blind, i’ll do it 360, come up from behind

Tap you on the shoulder, have you turnin’ around

Hit you with somethin’ that i’ll have you burin’ the ground

Be like “Damn ain’t nothin’ left of money, but a pile of ash”

Life is good, so please enjoy it, while it lasts

Cuz you know ain’t got much longer to go

The quicker you go depends the stronger the flow

When niggaz know I don’t give a FUCK, right or wrong

There ain’t no sunshine when it’s on
