               FAST OR SLOW

Music&Lyrics by Vladimir BOGATOFF

Black X White

CHORUS:

Morning here, I’m up to go!    

Silk is bed, enjoy it so    

Little stretch and shower cold    

I’ll stay down, no rush to go!    

X White

Life flies like a breeze in the sky

You push and rush to get the prize

There is no time to take second chance…

You only make it right, sharp mind and lions heart

Your body’s temple, take care of yourself!

X Black

I’m feeling good with taking time in bed

My dreams are building castles in the sand

So tender and so sweet

No rush is opening my eyes, my dreams of Paradise!

And those who wait for me should also take their time!

X White

Step up, you gotta believe!

Make a plan and work for your dreams!

You’ve got a chance if you’ve got a courage

Bust up your confidence, just take your dominance!

Build up your spirit, it will take you up.

X Black

My social media slides up

I’m getting popular in Instagram

And as virus in TikTok

Just need soft lights and camera, sunset in Dubai

Nice smile, green eyes  – welcome to my life!

Black X White

CHORUS:

You are choosing way to go

Left or right, there’re highs and lows

In or out, you are lark or owl

Be yourself, live fast or slow!

CHESS

Music&Lyrics by Vladimir BOGATOFF

CHORUS:                                                                

The whole world is playing chess

Some plays better than the rest   

Our world’s as a big chessboard

Where power dictates the rules to all   

 

Some play with white chessmen   

But others play with the blacks   

White chessmen starts the battle first   

On a black and white chessboard   

 

Chess is an allegory of our life   

We take the first steps and learn to play   

We make mistakes and we often lose    

But we shouldn’t resign without a fight   

 

CHORUS:

The whole world is playing chess   

Some plays better than the rest   

Our world’s as a big chessboard   

Where power dictates the rules to all   

 

As in chess, we start life as pawns   

Then we want to be a bishop or a knight    

But only a few want important be more     

And play the role of rook, queen or king     

 

In chess, like in society, are the rules    

Which cannot be changed in the game   

But a lot of life is built on lies    

And often the victory can’t be fair    

CHORUS:

The whole world is playing chess   

Some plays better than the rest    

Our world’s as a big chessboard    

Where power dictates the rules to all

SEASONS

Music&Lyrics by Vladimir BOGATOFF

Black X White

CHORUS:

Summer and winter, autumn and spring

The world is changing with their colouring

And you, as a painter, are choosing landscape

Which season more pleasant for you everyway

X White

How I like summer

Bright sun and blue sea

Brown tan and bright cocktails

This fine season for me

X Black

I like rainy autumn

Parks are covered with leaves

Romance in my window

The rain is knocking on me

Black X White

CHORUS:

Summer and winter, autumn and spring

The world is changing with their colouring

And you, as a painter, are choosing landscape

Which season more pleasant for you everyway

X White

How wonderful is winter

Go skiing with friends

In montains for Christmas

And Happy New Year!

X Black

Nature comes alive in spring

With birds flying high

And the trees are blooming

Filling world with life

Black X White

CHORUS:

All seasons are beautiful in their own ways

But we love them in way, as we’re not the same

It’s summer or winter, it’s autumn or spring

Make your choice of seasons and be happy in it!

STOP BULLYING!

Music&Lyrics by Vladimir BOGATOFF

X Black:

What to do if you are bullied at school and university?

They coin a nickname, sneak sideways glances with cruelty

Fingers pointing, pushing, tugging at your braids

No one stands up but your parents, who've got your back always

X White:

Tell them: Stop bullying!

Don't bully me!

X White:

Find yourself a strong defender

The one who will surrender

Rising above the crowd's scornful dance

Who belittle themselves in trance

X Black:

But how do I find him when everyone is bullying me?

Smarter ones seem weaker, strength following the majority

In which world should I seek, how to make him a friend?

A quest through the chaos, a journey without an end

X White:

It's a challenge to find such a soul

Without a sibling's guidance, a task to control

Yet, they exist—those sculpting their might

To shield the weak, to stand up for what's right

Just be the first to push back

Against those trying to knock you off track

Speak up loudly, make them think twice

Show them courage, be your own paradise

Tell them: Stop bullying!

Don't bully me!

Stop bullying!

Don't bully me!

And this man will come to your defence!

X Black:

Stop bullying!

Don't bully me!

Defender:

Stop bullying

Don’t bully her!

Black X White

CHORUS:

Birthday it's a holiday of childhood  

Friends and gifts - parts of joyful mood    

But we celebrate it in different ways  

 

X Black

I'm soulfull at home with my parents 

X White:

X White

You need to prepare for your birthday in advance

Think over a program for the party day

X Black

Birthday is a very sad holiday

You're getting older for a whole year

Toys are only needed in your bed

But for your parents you are a child every year

 

Black X White

CHORUS:

Birthday it's a holiday of childhood  

Friends and gifts - parts of joyful mood   

Every birthday is like one step up

By the beautiful stairways of your life!

BALLAD

Music&Lyrics by Vladimir BOGATOFF

Black X White

Sometimes it’s sadness in your soul 

But you haven’t it to show        

Just hide your face if you want to cry  

Pain covered with a polite smile   

X Black

Sometimes you’re letting down the hands

Soul and body need a break

It’s hard to hide behind the smile

What’s happening with you inside

X White

The world can bring a heavy stress

With pain and loneliness

When no one even wants to know

If you were there, or no?

X Black

Don’t want to prove to anyone

That I am good and light

My body’s strong, it gets along

With beauty of the soul

X White

It might be mean, it might be bad

At work and in your bed

Each morning pushing for the fight

Not easy to survive

Black X White

You can be strong, you can go on,

But good to know, you’re not alone

If you’ve got a friendly hand

It shouldn’t matter who is that…

 

What color and gender is that!

LOVE TRIANGLE

Music&Lyrics by Vladimir BOGATOFF

 

X White

How difficult is it sometimes to choose         

Someone whose shoulder will be faithful     

Who can you trust with your life                     

Watching together in bed sunrise                   

X Black

If he haven’t enough of you

If he's dating with me and you

Trying to find other traits in me

To complete own fantasy view

CHORUS instrumental

X White

Love triangle - how hard it is

I want to be the only one for him

But he is a one for both of us

There’s no way triangle lasts

X Black

It torments me, i feel it too

You believe he's made for you

But as I breath I know – he's mine

Why did we got on firing line?

Black X White

CHORUS:

Life story, story of love, my story

Your story, story both mine and yours

Black X White

We all are different inside

Like white day or black night

One like sparkle in Champaign

Other to hug on rainy day

Black X White

There is no way to share with you

True love that's meant to be for two

The day will come - he will decide

Which one of us will stay by his side

 

Black X White

CHORUS:

Life story, story of love, my story

Your story, story both mine and yours

Life story, story of love, my story

Love story, story both mine and yours

DRIVING STYLE

Music&Lyrics by Vladimir BOGATOFF

 

CHORUS:

Every girl's got her own driving style

Some go fast, they're racing all the while

Others slow, just taking it in stride

Choosing cars that fit just fine

 

PRE-CHORUS:

What about the colour of your ride?

Like choosing the shade of your inner pride

Does it match your handbag or state inside?

For some, it's all about the car's sweet ride

 

X White

I love the thrill of speedy drives

In my racing car I feel alive

Blonde behind the wheel, I make it clear

Setting the mood, no time for fear

Others give way, as I appear.

 

X Black

Economical and dark, that's how I roll

Park with ease, control my every goal

In a world of colours, I stay discreet

Leaving worries behind, no need to steal

My car's my partner, and it's got the appeal

 

PRE-CHORUS:

What about the colour of your ride?

Like choosing the shade of your inner pride

Does it match your handbag or state inside?

For some, it's all about the car's sweet ride

 

CHORUS:

Every girl's got her own driving style

Some go fast, they're racing all the while

Others slow, just taking it in stride

Choosing cars that fit just fine

INTROVERT

Music&Lyrics by Vladimir BOGATOFF

X Black:

I like boring evenings

In my room I feel like a lord

The space around is only mine

Where fairy dreams of my soul can define

 

Sometimes I read a book immersed in the story

Another time I’m watching the movies

I like to manage my time independently

According to my mood and desires

 

CHORUS:

Basically, I'm an Introvert

I dislike being in crowded rooms

I can share my revelations

Online is where my friendship looms

 

Loneliness is not a vice

Many of the greats worked alone

Having your private space in this world

Is like a bless that can’t be sold

 

It’s so important to be in piece with yourself

When the state of the body and soul

Are on the same gentle wave

In the closed space of a cozy world

 

CHORUS:

Basically, I'm an introvert

I dislike being in crowded rooms

I can share my revelations

Online is where my friendship looms

According to my mood and desires

EXTROVERT

Music&Lyrics by Vladimir BOGATOFF

 

X White:

I like friends and I like parties

Every evening we gather in a cafe,    

Or at someone's house

To loud music we dance and laugh

And we part at midnight

 

To be in demand and stylish

Take care of your body     and keep it in good shape

To keep up conversation

Need to stay up to date

 

CHORUS:

Basically, I am an extrovert

And I enjoy the fast paced life

That's why I'm like spring tight

Who doesn't even rest at night...

Who doesn't even rest at night

 

I like to travel with my friends

Getting to know the world    

Not in dreams, but with my own eyes

Learn new things not from books

Remembering what you saw

 

Every phase in life is special

Youth is when you gey impression    

Of the world around us

You should be like a volcano

Charging with positive emotions

 

CHORUS:

Basically, I am an extrovert

And I enjoy the fast paced life

That's why I'm like spring tight

Who doesn't even rest at night...

Who doesn't even rest at night

 

You should be like a volcano

BE YOURSELF

Music&Lyrics by Vladimir BOGATOFF

Black X White

Our world is very different

From school we know – we must be strong

Be prepared for life's challenges

And take fate into your own hands

But after the school is the real life

There is no place for snot and complaints

Real life has its own rules

And you cannot change them yourself

 

CHORUS:

Be different, but be yourself

Create your own cozy world

Respect your parents, be true with friends

Don't waste your life on trifles yet

X White

It's hard to take your first steps in life

You're like a baby trying not to fall

Not always the parent's hand

Is ready to support when you fall

X Black

Don't run away from your home

Where you have own room

Don't be shy to ask for help

For your parents you will be loved one

CHORUS:

Be different, but be yourself

Create your own cozy world

Respect your parents, be true with friends

Don't waste your life on trifles yet

Life is diverse – make yourself

Pave your way with own hands

Look yourself - create own style

Don't put things off - do all at once!

LETTER X

Music&Lyric by Vladimir Bogatoff
________

X Black

Letter X is a magical symbol

It contains a spring tight

Which is any word where it is

Makes it very strong and great

X White

Letter X is like a crossroads of two ways

Two different entities in one

One way is black and other is white

By crossing each other, they form a style

 

CHORUS: Black X White

Letter X, how magical  you are in words

You both unite and separate

You contain compressed strength

You are like a magic multiplier

X Black

But letter X has other meanings

Х-files, X-factor, Model X, Space X

And even the logo Twitter turned into letter X

Denoting a union of opposing opinions

X White

letter X in mathematics is a multiplication sign

In Roman numerals is a number ten

In office work it’s the secret files

And hidden talent in any art

 

CHORUS: Black X White

Letter X, how magical you are in words

You both unite and separate

You contain compressed strength

You are like a magic multiplier

Black X White

Letter X is also in our show

It means the opposite

So is unification, strengthening the essence

Everyone can put their own meaning in letter X

 

CHORUS: Black X White

Letter X, how magical you are in words

You both unite and separate

You contain compressed strength

You are like a magic multiplier

 

And even our logo turned into letter X

MY WORLD

Music&Lyrics by Vladimir BOGATOFF

We are live in a social society           

And we believe in higher justice       

Human rules that seem to help us all          

But deep inside we fight against the wall    

In my quest for freedom and a sense of rhythm  

We won't need a mentor, we'll do it ourselves    

 

Chorus:

We are black and we are white       

Big and small - it’s alright                

The thing is who you truly are        

Create and build your own world   

Make a better every day to come  

Be the creator of your best world  

 

Old walls are not always reliable     

We want to go beyond the old rules

We want to expand our space          

Make this world a better place        

There’s so much behind it and everyone must find it         

Own comfortable and profitable place        

 

Chorus:

We are black and we are white       

Big and small - it’s alright                  

The thing is who you truly are        

Create and build your own world   

Make a better every day to come  

Be the creator of your best world  

 

Create and implement your plans                           

Let adults solve the problems of the world for now            

But we will expand the scope of our freedom                     

Where is the skin color, gender and nationality                  

Won't matter to our creative worldview                 

Won't matter to our creative worldview                 

We are the builders of a new world!                       

 

Chorus

We are black and we are white       

Big and small - it’s alright                

The thing is who you truly are        

Create and build your world            

Your own world!
