     Skin that flick she's such a little DJ,
     to get there quick by street but not the freeway,
     turn that trick to make a little leeway,
     beat that nic but not the way that we play...

Verse 2 (Like Verse 1)

     kiss that dyke I know you want to hold one,
     not on strike but I'm about to bowl one,
     bite that mic I know you never stole one,
     girls that like a story, so I told one.

     song bird...
     main line...
     cash back...
     hard top...
