She take my money, well I'm in need
Yeah, she's a triflin' friend indeed
Oh, she's a gold digger way over town

And she likes me

(Kanye West)
Cutie the bomb
Met her at a beauty salon
With a baby Louis Vuitton
Under her underarm
She said, "I can tell you rock
I can tell by ya charm
Far as girls you got a flock
I can tell by ya charm and ya arm"
But I'm lookin' for the one
Have you seen her
My psychic told me she'll have a ass like Serena
Trina, Jennifer Lopez, four kids
An' I gotta take all they bad ass to Showbiz
Okay, get ya kids, but then they got their friends
I pulled up in the Benz, they all got up in
We all went to din' and then I had to pay
If you fuckin' with this girl then you betta be paid
You know why
It take too much to touch her
From what I heard she got a baby by Busta
My best friend say she use to fuck wit' Usher
I don't care what none of ya'll say, I still love her

CHORUS

(Kanye West)
She was really cute
I met her at a beauty salon
And she was carrying a small Louis Vuitton designer purse
Under her arm
She said, "I can tell you are great
I can tell by your charm
As far as girls are concerned, many are following you, like a flock of birds
I can tell you are great by your charm and your nice watch"
But I'm looking for the perfect one
Have you seen her?
My psychic told me she'll have beautiful buttocks like tennis pro Serena Williams
and sexy singers Trina and Jennifer Lopez, and she'll have four children
And I will be responsible for taking them out for pizza
Okay, I'll get your kids, but then they also wanted to bring their friends
I arrived in my Mercedes Benz luxury car, and they all got in
We all went to dinner and then I had to pay
If you spending time with this girl then you had better be rich
You know why
It takes too much money to touch her
From what I heard, she had a baby by rapper Busta Rhymes
My best friend says she used to have sex with Rhythm and Blues singer Usher
I don't care what any of you say, I still love her

CHORUS

18 years, 18 years
She got one of yo kids got you for 18 years
I know somebody payin' child support for one of his kids
His baby momma car and crib is bigger than his
You will see him on TV any given Sunday
Win the Superbowl and drive off in a Hyundai
She was s'pose to buy ya shorty TYCO with ya money
She went to the doctor got lipo wit' ya money
She walkin' around lookin' like Michael wit' ya money
Shoulda got that insured, GEICO for ya money( your money)
If you ain't no punk holla, "We Want Prenupt!"
"We want prenupt!" Yeah
It's something that you need to have
'Cuz when she leave yo ass she gon' leave with half
18 years, 18 years
And on the 18th birthday he found out it wasn't his

CHORUS

18 years, 18 years
She had your baby and you will have to pay child support until the child is 18 years old
I know somebody who is paying child support for one of his children
The mother of his child has a car and house that are bigger than his are
You will see him playing professional football on TV on Sundays
Even if he wins the Superbowl, he will drive an inexpensive Hyundai car
She was supposed to buy your child toy cars with your money
But instead, she went to the doctor and got liposuction with your money
She has had so much plastic surgery with your money that she is walking around looking like Michael Jackson
You should have taken precautions, the same way you insure your car with GEICO auto insurance in case of accidents
If you aren't a fool, shout, "We want a prenuptial agreement!"
"We want a prenuptial agreement!" Yes
It's something that you need to have
Because if you don't have one, when she divorces you, she will get half of your assets
18 years, 18 years
And on the 18th birthday he found out the child wasn't his

CHORUS

Now I ain't sayin' you a gold digger, you got needs
You don't want a dude to smoke but he can't buy weed
You go out to eat and he can't pay y'all can't leave
There's dishes in the back, he gotta roll up his sleeves
But while y'all washin' watch him
He gon' make it into a Benz out of that Datsun
He got that ambition baby look in his eyes
This week he moppin' floors next week it's the fryers
So, stick by his side
I know his dude's ballin' but yeah that's nice
And they gon' keep callin' and tryin'
But you stay right, girl
But when you get on he leave yo ass for a white girl

Get down girl, go head, get down
Get down girl, go head, get down
get down girl, go head, get down
Let me hear that back

Now I am not saying you are a woman who only cares about a man for his money, you have got needs
You don't want a man to smoke but he can't buy marijuana
You go out to eat and if he can't pay you can't leave
There are dishes in the back, and he has to roll up his sleeves
But while you are washing those dishes to pay for the meal, watch him
He is going to be driving a Mercedes Benz one day though he now drives an inexpensive Datsun car
He has got ambition, girl, look in his eyes
This week he is mopping floors at work, but next week he'll be promoted to operating the food fryers
So, stay by his side
I know his friend is wealthier, yes that's nice
And they are going to keep calling and trying to go out with you
But you stay on the right course, girl
But when you get older, he'll leave you for a white girl

Dance, girl, dance
Dance, girl, dance
Dance, girl, dance
Let me hear that back
