lyrics

Pimp (radio edit) lyrics

You drive a fancy car, so everyone can see how fly you are. On your wide screen TV. They can't help but stare, admiring. Your tailor's when you mack. And all those fine ladies, that made a pack. And they don't pretend, when we talk about, the sad victims.
Your telling me that I just need to see. Then nearly lost It in the end. Pimp.
Chorus
You need so much to feel good. Pimp, I would help you if I could. Pimp 2x
Verse 2
I like your wide brimmed hat, you smile and say that I'm not into that. You point to my bank account. Then suck your teeth and say man, you work it out.
Bridge
I got these ladies, who like to give me money. That's what I call spirituality. Pimp.
Chorus
You need so much to feel good. Pimp, I would help you if I could. Pimp 2x
Inst
How many stone cold shoes, from Fox Hills shopping mall can one man choose. Kool your menthol cigarettes, the only ones you'll smoke, won't touch the rest.
Bridge
I'll show you what I got, he said to me. Then nearly lost it in the end. Pimp.
Chorus
You need so much to feel good. Pimp, I would help you if I could. Pimp 2x

Say man I need to pimp so much to feel. Hey I needs to pimp so much to feel. See my walk, see my talk. Cause I needs to pimp so much to feel. Hey, I just wanna pimp so much to feel. Now listen to me one time tell ya. Tell ya it's true.

Everybody wants to pimp. Everybody wants to pimp.
I needs so much to feel good. I needs something good to feel good. But you know what they say to me? You know what they say to me? They say anybody trying to get something
