Lyrics

(Give it to me baby)
Uhh haa uhh haa

(Give it to me baby)
Uhh haa uhh haa

(Give it to me baby)
Uhh haa uhh haa

And all the girlies say im pretty fly for a white guy

[Intro]
Uno, Dos, Tres, Cuatro, Cinco, Cinco, Seis

[Verse]
You know it's kind of hard 
Just to get along today
Our subject isn't cool 
But he fakes it anyway
He may not have a clue 
And he may not have style
But everything he lacks
Well he makes up in denial


[Chorus]
So don't debate, a player straight
You know he really doesn't get it anyway
He's gonna play the field, and keep it real
For you no way, for you no way
So if you don't rate, just overcompensate
At least you'll know you can always go on Ricki Lake
The world needs wannabe's
So do that brand new thing

So if you don't rate, just overcompensate
At least you'll know you can always go on Ricki Lake
The world needs wannabe's
So do that brand new thing

[Intro]
(Give it to me baby)
Uhh haa uhh haa

(Give it to me baby)
Uhh haa uhh haa

(Give it to me baby)
Uhh haa uhh haa

And all the girlies say im pretty fly (for a white guy)

[Verse]
He needs some cool tunes
Not just any will suffice
But they didn't have Ice Cube
So he bought Vanilla Ice
Now cruising in his Pinto, he sees homies as he pass
But if he looks twice
They're gonna kick his lily ass


[Chorus]
So don't debate, a player straight
You know he really doesn't get it anyway
He's gonna play the field, and keep it real
For you no way, for you no way
So if you don't rate, just overcompensate
At least you'll know you can always go on Ricki Lake
The world needs wannabe's
So do that brand new thing

So if you don't rate, just overcompensate
At least you'll know you can always go on Ricki Lake
The world needs wannabe's
So do that brand new thing

[Bridge]
Now he's getting a tattoo 
He's gettin' ink done
He asked for a '13', but they drew a '31'
Friends say he's trying too hard
And he's not quite hip
But in his own mind
He's the dopest trip

[Verse]
(Give it to me baby)
Uhh haa uhh haa

(Give it to me baby)
Uhh haa uhh haa

(Give it to me baby)
Uhh haa uhh haa

Uno, Dos, Tres, Cuatro, Cinco, Cinco, Seis

[Chorus]
So don't debate, a player straight
You know he really doesn't get it anyway
He's gonna play the field, and keep it real
For you no way, for you no way
So if you don't rate, just overcompensate
At least you'll know you can always go on Ricki Lake
The world needs wannabe's
The world loves wannabe's


[Outro]
So let's get some more wannabe's
And do that brand new thing

Rate this, if you like it, THANKS!
