Big white mansion top of the road
Latest fashion, happy, don't U know?
Here I am n New York, yeah
See the girl bold and fair ("Yo, Anita!")
What's n ur backpack 2day?
Will it take my blues away?
That's OK U gotta run
Huh, check it, I don't need U 2 have some fun
Comin' from the land of snow
I guess I'm kinda used 2 cold
But 1 day I'll have a big white mansion at the top of the road
I'm gonna wear the latest fashion, I'm gonna b happy, don't U know?
I could use a new guitar
Sing a tune n Chazz's bar
Maybe meet a debutante
B a toy, do what she want (Tell me what U wanna do?)
9 o'clock, see John K.
But U don't rock, come another day (When?)
Come another day
My spirit so low reachin' up 4 ground
1 day I'm gonna make it n this lonely town
Then I'll live n a big white mansion at the top of the road
I'm gonna wear the latest fashion, then I'll b happy, don't U know?
Hey there, what's ur name? (What's ur name, cutie?)
And can U tell me how 2 play ur game? ("I am a winner") (Listen 2 this)
Do I really have 2 cut my hair? (No)
Now, that's a cross I could never bear
"How 'bout them publishin' rights?"
Sell my publishing? What a laugh! Haha
I don't know Bo, but I do know math
Back 2 Minneapolis, there U go
U can't find ur house underneath the snow
Cuz U're livin' n a big white mansion, oh yes, at the top of the road
U're wearin' the latest fashion tryin' 2 b happy, don't U know?
Tryin' 2 b happy, happy
Big white, big white mansion at the top of the road
U and me wearin' Versace, Gucci (Latest fashion)
Hoochies, they all wanna do me (Happy, don't U know?)
But am I really happy? (Big white mansion)
Yeah, maybe 1 day
"Yo, Anita! Yo, check out that ass!"
