Original Translation of Slang

Caroline! Caroline!
All the guys would say she's
mighty fine
But mighty fine only
got you somewhere half the time
And the other half either
got you cursed out, or coming up short
Yeah, now
dig this, even though
You'd need a golden calculator to divide
The time it took to look inside and realize that
Real guys go for real
down to Mars girls, yeah!



mighty fine very attractive

got you cursed out, or coming up short either she said bad words angrily to you or she thought you were not good enough for her
dig this pay attention


down to Mars girls crazy girls. Play on down to earth (practical)

CHORUS
I know you'd like to think your shit don't stank
But lean a little bit closer
See that roses really smell like poo-poo-poo
Yeah, roses really smell like poo-poo-poo
(repeat)


your shit don't stank your feces doesn't smell bad

poo-poo-poo feces (poo or poo poo is a children's word)

(Andre 3000)
Caroline! See she's the reason for the word "bitch"
I hope she's speeding on the way to the club
Trying to hurry up to get to some
Baller or singer or somebody like that
And try to put on her makeup in the mirror
And crash, crash, crash into a ditch! (Just Playing!)
She needs a golden calculator to divide
The time it took to look inside and realize that
Real guys go for real down to Mars girls, yeah!

CHORUS


she's the reason for the word "bitch" her bad behavior is the reason the word bitch (hateful woman) was invented


Baller big spender

Just Playing! I'm only joking!

(Big Boi)
Well she's got a hotty body, but her attitude is potty
When I met her at a party she was hardly acting naughty
I said "Would you call me?"
She said "Pardon me, are you ballin'?"
I said, "Darling, you sound like a prostitute pausing"
Oh so you're one them freaks, get geeked at the sight of ATM receipts
But game been peeped, dropping names she's weak
Trickin' off this bitch is lost
Must take me for a geek a quick way to eat
A neat place to sleep, a rent-a-car for a week, a trick for a treat
Now go on the raw sex, my AIDS test is flawless
Regardless, we don't want to get involved with no lawyers
And judges just to hold grudges in a courtroom
I wanna see ya support bra not support you!

CHORUS

 


hotty sexy potty poor (the literal meaning of potty is the toilet. It is often used with "mouth" for a person who uses bad words.)


ballin' wealthy

freaks crazy people or people who enjoy crazy sex get geeked at the sight of ATM receipts you get excited about money
game been peeped I understand your real intentions dropping names mentioning famous people who you have met or are friends with to impress others
Trickin' off this bitch is lost a trick is a prostitute's customer. This sentence can mean either "I won't be able to sleep with her" or "I won't be able to sell her body to another man as her pimp (manager)"
geek loser, fool (the original geek was a carnival entertainer who bit the heads from live chickens. Later it became a word for people who excelled at math and science, especially computers, but lacked social skills)
a trick for a treat she will sleep with me like a prostitute if I buy her expensive dinners, gifts, etc.
Now go on the raw sex let's have sex without a condom


wanna want to ya your

Better come back down to Mars
Girl, quit chasin' cars
What happens when the dough get so low
Bitch, you ain't that fine
No way.. no way.. no way

Crazy bitch
Bitch, stupid ass bitch
Old punk ass bitch, old dumbass bitch
A bitch is a bitch, just a bitch

 
quit chasin' cars stop following rich men the way dogs chase cars
What happens when the dough get so low Will you still be interested in me when I don't have much money?
Bitch, you ain't that fine Hateful woman, you are not attractive enough to treat me that way
No way absolutely not


stupid ass very stupid
punk ass worthless dumbass very stupid
