The Lyrics

...i shouldn't have to mention that is from a well endowed female's point of view and not my own, right ?....
do you know it pays to dance this way ?
naked...except a may be wrong...but what the hey !
do you know it pays to dance this way ?
i got a rack so fine...need one like dance this way

L.A. joints have lots of leeway
lots of horny clowns...down at the bars
there are jerks, one or two, who take it too far
winks turn into leers...they make a pass
but i have guards...if that occurs
they cock their arms...and thump their ass

some would say we tease to dance this way
think it is out of place...they make a face...of great dismay
i was born and raised to dance this way
i've got the knack to shine...shake my behind...and dance this way

though for freaks, i am a magnet
when upon that tawdry stage, i roam
though it seems...i'm a tart....i go home alone
creeps can only lust and blow their pay
and i get all...the cash they spend
hop in my car...and drive away

i know how to bend and dance this way
low low...low low...low low...low low...low
do you know it pays to dance this way ?
dough dough...dough dough...dough dough...dough dough...dough
i have got the rack to dance this way
whoa whoa...whoa whoa...whoa whoa...whoa whoa...whoa whoa

Nice one Alvin. Can anyone finish this and get it posted before we see it for real in the papers - Then I won the race, but I'm a deceicer. Got a trace of dope in my vein. I'm on drugs, I'm a deceiver, I gotta leave here coz I lied.
