"Perfect Gentleman" is the third single released from American recording artist Wyclef Jean's second studio album, The Ecleftic: 2 Sides II a Book. In the United States, the song reached #108 on the Billboard R&B chart and failed to chart on the Billboard Hot 100. Internationally, however, 'Perfect Gentleman' became a big hit in the United Kingdom, where it peaked at #4 and went on to spend a total fourteen weeks on the British chart. The single was certified Silver on August 24, 2001 by the BPI. Perfect Gentleman was covered by the reggae rock band Slightly Stoopid on their 2003 LP Everything You Need. The song quotes Chris Rock's spoken-word piece "No Sex (In the Champagne Room)". The music video for Perfect Gentleman was shot in Washington D.C and features a scene outside The White House. The video shows Jean in a massive ballroom, performing the song to the crowd. It later features Jean as the President of the United States, outlining his plans for being the Perfect Gentleman.

(This one`s goin` out to the strip joints
Yo, meet me at Suzy`s Rendez-vous
For every Go-Go Bar
I`ma send this one out to the gentlemen`s clubs
Magic City, New York dogs, Rolex
I be seeing y`all up in there late at night
I understand when your girl is stressing you out
[Crazy girls] Know what I`m saying?
Don`t let the ladies fool y`all now, fellas
They be doin` the same thing y`all be doin`
Turn up my symphony, man.
Turn up my symphony!
Drop a BEAT!)
I`m in paradise. Look at all these crystals, what`s up in scores? (uh-huh)
Yo straight up this the new anthem for anybody working hard tryin to make that
money (giddyup giddyup giddyup), check it out, ya`ll.
Just `cuz she dances go-go
It don`t make her a ho, no
Maxine, put your red shoes on, hon
We going to the disco
We gonna eeeelope to Meeeexico
Called up my mama, said I`m in love with this strippah, yo
Ten grand, let me see you shake it like you got no
bones in your body and you was made to be a celebrity
Twenty grand, know it`s a sin, but if only you show
me a little more skin it would fulfill my fantasy
Thirty grand, to the highest bidder but Chris Rock
said, `There`s no sex in the champaigne room`
Forty grand, looked into her eyes, I saw tears falling
down, type of tears that money couldn`t buy
Excuse me, what is your name?
Uh, my name is Hope, yo
I was blessed with the body of the Goddesses
Have you any idea how hard this is?
I could flex in 25 positions
But I only work here to pay my tuition
Yo, tantalizing teaser
Give me what I need a
Mastercard or Visa
Lap dance fantasy
Picture us on an all white canopy
Wyclef extended his hand to me
Like Billy D. said he`s feelin me
Take me away from here, so far
Where they ride horses, no cars
No more stripping in bars
Me and you `Clef, against the odds
(Yo a lot of y`all sitting with y`all girls
fronting like the budweiser commercial
Talking bout, `IIIIIII, I don`t be going to the strip joints`
You lying man! You`d be surprised who you see up in there man.
I got one question for you liars, man)
Shot callers, What are you, a preacher?
You calling her a hooker? He without sin cast the first stone.
I met her on the subway, she gave me that VIP card
And told me if I ever have problems,
Don`t hesitate to come by, yeah, yeah, yeah
Call up my mama said I`m in love with this strippah yo!
(Yo baby, can I get another lap dance? I tell you I
got nothing but funny money, man. New York Dogs.)
