I knew a girl named Nikki, I guess U could say she was a sex fiend
I met her n a hotel lobby masturbating with a magazine
She said, "How'd U like 2 waste some time"
And I could not resist when I saw little Nikki grind

She took me 2 her castle and I just couldn't believe my eyes
She had so many devices, everything that money could buy
She said, "Sign ur name on the dotted line"
The lights went out and Nikki started 2 grind
Oh Nikki!

The castle started spinning or maybe it was my brain
I can't tell U what she did 2 me but me body will never b the same
Her lovin' will kick ur behind and, oh, she'll show U no mercy
But she'll sho'nuff, sho'nuff show U how 2 grind
Darling Nikki

I woke up the next mornin', Nikki wasn't there
I looked all over, all I found was a phone number on the stairs
It said, "Thank U 4 a funky time, call me up whenever U wanna grind"
Yeah Nikki! Oh!
Come back Nikki, come back!
Ur dirty little Prince wanna grind, grind, grind... ow!
Ooh, ooh shit!
Darling Nikki
