knew a girl named Nikki
guess U could say she was a sex fiend
met her N a hotel lobby masturbating with a magazine
She said, "How'd U like 2 waste some time"
& could not resist when saw little Nikki grind
She took me 2 her castle & 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 & Nikki started 2 grind
The castle started spinning or maybe it was my brain
can't tell U what she did 2 me
But me body will never B the same
Her lovin' will kick ur behind &, oh, she'll show U no mercy
But she'll sho'nuff, sho'nuff show U how 2 grind
woke up the next mornin'
Nikki wasn't there
looked all over
All found was a phone number on the stairs
It said, "Thank U 4 a funky time
Call me up whenever U wanna grind"
Come back Nikki, come back!
Ur dirty little Prince wanna grind, grind, grind...!
Hello, how R U?
'm fine cuz know that the Lord is coming soon
Coming, coming soon
