Let's see, body oil? Check! Incense? Check!
Environmental records? Double check!!
I'm gon' get some serious draws 2night, think I ain't?
Let's see, if I tell Gilbert and Jerome 2 meet me at 11
And then I creep at 10, that'll give me an hour of free reign
More draws, more draws

9:30 gettin' dressed, had a couple sips of wine
Boom! I swear 2 God my suit was hangin' fine
Everybody at the club freaked when stepped from my limousine
They said, "Ooh, it's good 2 see ya"
I said, "Oh, it's good 2 b seen, U know what mean?"

I'll tell U what's good
It's a good thing we live close cuz almost suffocated n that car
Next time I won't wear so much Paco Rabinni or whatever that stuff is
I wonder if they got potato chips up n this... !
Man, this ain't like them house parties we used 2 go 2
That's alright, I'm clean

2night, hey, I'm a movie star
I see myself on the silver screen
Huh, 2night, it don't matter who U r
I'm the only star on the scene, U know what I mean?

Mm
Man, I hate makin' movies, but I like that money
U think I don't? Haha
Check me out, I just walk n, don't even find a seat
Just threw my coat right on the floor
Grab somebody 4 a quick dance
Boy or girl, it don't matter no more, I'm hot!
Hahaha... shit
Mix was right
Bold! Lord

Ouch! Hehe
Baby, do U wanna, do U wanna get off?
2night I'm a movie star
I see myself up on the silver screen
2night it don't matter, I'm the star on the scene... ouch!

Mix was right on the 1, the kick drum hit the triple beat
Baby, I was poppin'
Did 1 spin, did a 2nd, did the splits, came up, looked around
The joint was hoppin'
Hoppin', the joint was hoppin'
Somebody say, "Movie Star!"

So, check it out, U wanna dance?
"R U wearing that Paco Rabbit or whatever U call it?"
Oh wow, that's dog!
"What? Speak up, I can't hear over that suit!"
Maybe U can hear this?
"Am I supposed 2 b impressed?"
That's right, Rolls Royce! Check it out, baby, U wanna dance now?
"Haha, maybe next song"
Yeah right, dance floor's not big enough, U fat cow

Ooh
Ooh, the mix, it's about the mix
Ooh baby, I like that but the Kid gonna show U a few tricks
Can I play with U?

Baby, let's creep, I had enough of this action
Bartender, on the house, give everybody n here somethin'
Man, I don't care
I got money 2 spare, U're cute and ur music's thumpin'
Yo baby, get the check
"'Yo baby,' my behind! I need my money"
Say Brother Carothers, can I get some credit?
No?! As much money I done spent n this nasty joint?!
U need 2 b slapped!
Darlin', shall we leave now?
Go 2 Hades, boy!

So U like my crib? It's not mine, it's rented
Say, how much did U have 2 drink?
"What's the biggest lake U've ever been n?"

So, do U like environmental records?
Crickets chirpin', water rushin'
It's supposed 2 make U horny, it just make me wanna go 2 the bathroom
Actually this 1's not bad, check it out
So like, what's ur name?
"Zzzzzzzzz"
Oh wow, that's dog
