        That woman in the corner, cold playin' the role
        Just leave her ass in the corner till her feet get cold
        Knowin' for a fact, that girl is whacked
        If you hold your hand out, she'll turn her back
        Better walk, don't talk, she's all pretend
        Can't be her friend unless you spend
        Wall to wall, after all
        Get ready to throw only money at the bitch

        Cause she thinks she's so-

        Peekin', seekin' inside a book
        Her demands for a man with a chemical look
        Wishes, desires, gettin worse with age
        She doesn't want a man, all she wants is a page
        Ain't got a man so she goes to a club
        She think it's classy but it's really a pub
        But that's the kind of place she likes to go
        The bitch got a problem

        Cause she thinks she's so-

        Jackets, shoes, everyday ties
        The girl only wants one of those guys
        Suckers who front like it ain't no thing
        Pretend to be friends, don't want that thang
        Talk like this, don't talk slang
        Do anything to get that thang
        Tries to be chic and play it off
        Peekin' through the window, I saw her take her clothes off
        Nasty girl, stone cold freak
        Stayin' in bed a whole goddamn week
        Comin' and leavin' guys servin' up storms
        From execs with checks, boys from the dorms
        Never kept a name, never seen a face
        She could pass 'em in the street like it never took place
        I know she's a ho I'm on the go
        Expose the funky bitch

        Cause she thinks she's so-

        Now she wants a sucker but with an attache
        And if you ain't got it, she'll turn you away
        You can smile with stile but you lost your trial
        Cause you got a gold tooth, she thinks you're wild
        She don't want a brother that's true and black
        If you're light, you're alright, better stay back
        Cause the sucker with the bag is out the catch
        With something in his bag keepin' her attached
        The man's got a plan, it's IBM
        The devil at her level, yes it's him
        His Audi she rides, his gold and clothes
        The ill base method, turning up her nose
        Lack a lack a lack, now beaming her up
        She still got the nerve to turn her funky nose up
        Her status looks at us from down below
        Now the bitch is in trouble

        Cause she was so-

        Little is known about her past
        So listen to me cause I know her ass
        Used to steal money out her boyfriends clothes
        And never got caught, so the story goes
        She kept doin' that to all her men
        Found the wrong man when she did it again
        And still to this day people wonder why
        He didn't beat the bitch down till she almost died
