Stephen Marley:She loves to party, have a good time
she looks so hearty, feeling fine!
she loves to smoke ("sumtime shiftin'coke!")
she's a laughin' when there ain't no joke

Hey!
Pimpas' paradise
that's all she was now
Pimpas' paradise
that's all she was...
Pimpas' paradise
that's all she was now...!!!
Pimpas' paradise
that's all she was...

Damian Marley: 'cause coke was a thing that when she first tried
was once a blue moon to once a blue sky
now she's wonderin' who else wants to go by
she don't got no money and wants to get high
story sounds familiar like born to be wild, But she sillier
not quite the same but she similiar
A waste of my sarsaparilla,
Used to look good in the videos now she look hideous
Now it's broken crack pipes with lipstick traces
Walk the cold nights red district places
She seen more hotels then my tour suitcases
More male customers than Old Navy
She love limelight more than John Swaybeys
Seen more miles than I rent a AVIS
She don't slow down then some day maybe
She lost and she can't find her way to safety

Pimpas' paradise
that's all she was now
Pimpas' paradise
that's all she was...
Pimpas' paradise
that's all she was now...!!!
Pimpas' paradise
that's all she was...

Check it out! She keep her head up in space like a satellite
Because she got a insatiable appetite
For stayin out late night with all the parasites
Plottin on the way to cop a little piece of paradise
Her dignity the only thing that she could sacrifice
Just get the monkey off her back and she be back in like
Five minutes, she stay on the move
She looked smoked up, and stoned at the buildin refused
All coked up, alone she ain't even in tuned
And it's sad cause she ain't really have a reason to use
She was a pretty girl cleaner than the board of health
studied and enjoyed herself
I don't know what drove her to avoid herself
Destroyed herself and took a taste of the yay
And now she on the track workin while she wastin away
It's safe to say
she lookin for some place to stay
Whoever got a lil' paper to play
could get a slice a dis...

Pimpas' paradise
that's all she was now
Pimpas' paradise
that's all she was...
Pimpas' paradise
that's all she was now...!!!
Pimpas' paradise
that's all she was...

For no reason a seasoned spliff was the first thing
One spring season while she's out flirtin
Now she sees a need and don't need rehearsin
esteem get a beaten life is uncertained
Ego need feedin now the want's worsen
Beneath the demons she's a warm person
When she's not fiendin swearin and cursin
Behind the curtain she's really hurtin
And while her people don't even trust her at home
di dealer dem bring and cook the rocks down
And she without sin will spark the first stone
The feelin kicks in she's in the dark zone
Old friends walk pass goin bout there own
As if she is someone that they don't know
Then the King Of Kings lift her off the floor
Sayin life is a ting when you learn you grow

Pimpas' paradise
that's all she was now
Pimpas' paradise
that's all she was...
Pimpas' paradise
that's all she was now...!!!
Pimpas' paradise
that's all she was...

She rise and fall like a star
her life ride off like a car
Her face full of all kind of scar
always with fist start a war
she can't keep herself up to par
she plays like a broken guitar
she always want take it to far
Although she a gan make it too far

She rise and fall like a star
her life ride off like a car
Her face full of all kind of scar
always with fist start a war
She can't keep herself up to par
she plays like a broken guitar
She always want take it to far
Me wonder if she make it so far, oooyee
