The Lyrics

So ya wanna fix up yo' old car.
Call it pimpin' your ride
But you're not exactly sure what is pimp.

So you started to wear your bling bling
You think it is the right thing
Somehow, you think there's much more to this fling.

What is pimp?
When I was young, it meant something else
What is pimp?
Wearing tacky clothes
And hustling out the hoes
You're into a pimp trip.
And you look like a simp.
What is pimp?
{ Trumpet solo/guitar solo }

Hangin with people that are so whack.
Been smokin' a whole lot of crack.
Hangin' out with the so called "Playa set."

Seen where the hot folks get down
Your persona is a clown
You should be embarrased, because it's not right.

What is pimp?
When I was young, it meant something else
What is pimp?
Wearing tacky clothes
And hustling out the hoes
You're into a pimp trip.
And you look like a simp.
What is pimp?
{ Trumpet solo/guitar solo }

Come on!


Pimpness is. What it is!
Pimpness is. What it is!
Pimpness is. What it is!
Pimpness always is, negative.

{ guitar solo }

You went an' found some platform shoes.
In an effort to show that you pay dues,
And maybe even raise your playa level.

While you're striving to find the flavor,
This will never waver,
"What's pimp today, will become passe'."


What is pimp?
When I was young, it meant something else
What is pimp?
Wearing tacky clothes
And hustling out the hoes
You're into a pimp trip.
And you look like a simp.
What is pimp?
{ Trumpet solo/guitar solo }

{ Trumpet solo }

Think about it y'all.

{ keyboard solo }

Pimpness is. What it is!
Pimpness is. What it is!
Pimpness is. What it is!
Sometimes pimpness is, what it's not.

What is pimp?
Ahhhhhhhhh!
What is pimp?
I'd like to know!
What is pimp?
Is it in the style of your ride?
What is pimp?
Is it in the clothes that you wear?
What is pimp?
I'd like to know.
What is pimp?
I'd like to know.
What is pimp?
What is pimp y'all? Hey!
What is pimp?
Hey! Oh!
What is pimp?
What is pimp y'all?
What is pimp?
You should know.
What is pimp?
Ahhhhhhh!
What is pimp?
I wanna know what pimpness means.
