Lemme tell U a story

My favorite band N life is playin' N town on Wednesday's night
wish 2 God had the nerve 2 go
The singer N the band is my type, not 2 big or small
But hate 2 let my inner feelings show

My made-up name is Vanity cuz a girl's best friend's her pride
& a working girl don't have 2 tolerate the mailman's tricks
Everybody gets 3 years of tribulation unless they lie
But with the female, 3 x 2 = 6

When 'm older, wanna B a movie star just like Greta Garbo
Well, then could tell everybody what 2 do
Well, she was so cool, it was plain 2 C that she was N control
bet she never played the part of any1's fool

So, my made-up name is Vanity cuz a girl's best friend's her pride
& a working girl don't have 2 tolerate the mailman's tricks
Oh no, oh no
Everybody gets 3 years of tribulation unless they lie
But with the female, 3 x 2 = 6

Play ur song 1 time, baby girl
don't think they heard U now, baby

That's all need 2 say becuz think U understand
Unless, of course, N another life U were a man

Please believe me when tell U a girl's best friend's her pride
A working girl don't have 2 tolerate the mailman's tricks
No she don't
Everybody gets 3 years of tribulation unless they lie
But with the female, well, 3 x 2 = 6

Won't somebody help me?
Please believe me when tell U a girl's best friend's her pride
A working girl don't have 2 tolerate the mailman's tricks
Sister, can U hear me?
Everybody gets 3 years of tribulation unless they lie
But with the female, 3 x 2 = 6
Sister, can U hear me talkin' 2 ya?

Please believe me when tell U a girl's best friend's her pride
A working girl don't have 2 tolerate the mailman's tricks
Sister, can U hear me?
Everybody gets 3 years of tribulation unless they lie
But with the female, 3 x 2 = 6
