Intro
Tell me is he pretty
He’s outta sight
Good as all the girls say
On any night
Can he afford to pay my way
You damn right
And you should be ashamed if you don’t know his name
Repeat

Verse
He’s a cool sharp clean mutha fucka
Hair permed straight down to the root
Earned every stripe in his suit
He’s the go-to when you got to from the gutter
Mean as the beast they had to shoot
To make his low top high heeled boot

Born of a biscuit eatin preacher from Kentucka
His momma worked her way through school
Would sell her tail to make his bail
Skin like warm smooth peanut butter
You’ll see him sittin on the stoop
Countin the days countin his loot

Chorus
My guess is it won’t take long
‘fore Mr. Go-Getter get’s himself gone
Like Michael said in that song
He can’t get out of the game
He can’t get out of the game
He might win
He might get over
He can’t get out of the game

Verse
He wanna run, live, have, give
And never regret a day
He’s willing to lie, cheat, steal, beat
Anyone who gets in the way
And it is highly recommended
Any funds that are extended
Be immediately passed to him on sight
And it is much to his frustration
When he’s forced to make translation
Bitch better have my money tonight

Chorus
My guess is it won’t take long
‘fore Mr. Go-Getter get’s himself gone
Like Michael said in that song
He can’t get out of the game
He can’t get out of the game
He might win
He might get over
He can’t get out of the game

Bridge
Everyone knows when he’s in town
The wind blows quicker
The air’s a little thicker
Street beneath his feet comes a live
The prince of the night has arrived

Go do your thing player
Them cats aint hip to your game
You like a king player
There aint a shrew you can’t tame
You play to win player
Ask me I’ll tell you the same
Don’t mind player just play on
Repeat

Oh life can leave you cold
And all that shines aint made of gold

Outro
Tell me is he pretty
He’s outta sight
Good as all the girls say
On any night
Can he afford to pay my way
You damn right
And you should be ashamed if you don’t know his name

Chorus out
