Song Lyrics

(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.

[Chorus]

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

[Verse 1]

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

[Chorus 2X]

[Verse 2]

-Wyclef-

Excuse me, what is your name?

-Hope-

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

Table-top pleaser

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

[Chorus 2X]

(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

[Chorus 2X]

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.)
