Strutting her stuff walking to show off her body
She said, "Hello, hey Joe
You wanna give it a go?" do you want to have sex?

CHORUS
Itchy gitchi yaya dada (hey hey hey)
Itchy gitchi yaya hee (hee oh)
Mocha chocolata yaya (ooh yeah)
Creole Lady Marmalade (ohh)

Voulez-vous coucher avec moi, ce soir (oh oh)
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi (yeah yeah yeah yeah)
He sat in her boudoir while she freshened up
Boy drank all that magnolia wine
On her black satin sheets
Is where he started to freak, yeah

CHORUS

 


Itchy gitchi yaya dada, etc. Although these are generally considered nonsense words, we've had a couple of people write in saying that "Gitchi yaya dada" is New Orleans prostitute-speak for "get your sex, daddy." So far, we haven't been able to verify this in any reputable reference, but it certainly sounds reasonable.
Mocha chocolata
reference to the prostitute's light brown skin color)Voulez-vous coucher avec moi, ce soir Do you want to sleep with me tonight (French, not slang)

freshened up put on more makeup/used the bathroom
to freak to go crazy/have wild sex
CHORUS

We come through with the money and the garter belts
Let 'em know we 'bout that cake, straight out the gate
We independent women, some mistake us for whores
I'm saying, why spend mine when I can spend yours
Disagree, well that's you and I'm sorry
I'mma keep playing these cats out like Atari
Wear high heeled shoes, get love from the dudes
Four badass chicks from the Moulin Rouge
Hey sisters, soul sisters
Gotta get that dough sisters
We drink wine with diamonds in the glass by the case
The meaning of expensive taste

CHORUS

Hey, hey, hey
Touch of her skin feeling silky smooth, oh
Color of cafe au lait, alright
Made the savage beast inside
Roar until he cried
More, more, more
Now he's back home doing nine to five
Living a gray flannel life
But when he turns off to sleep, memories keep
More, more, more

 

cake this word can mean money, an attractive woman, or a vagina, any of which would work for this sentence. straight out the gate right away



I'mma keep playing these cats out like Atari I'm taking advantage of the men with the same skill that I play a video game dudes men badass chicks tough women
Hey sisters, soul sisters
Gotta get that dough have to get that money
