(Give it to me, baby)
Uh-huh Uh-huh!
(Give it to me, baby)
Uh-huh Uh-huh!
(Give it to me, baby)
Uh-huh Uh-huh!
And all the girlies say
I'm pretty fly for a white guy

Uno, dos, tres, cuatro,
Cinco, cinco, seis

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

So don't debate,
A player straight
You know he really
Doesn't get it anyway

Gotta 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 wannabes, so
Hey, hey, do that brand new thing

(Give it to me, baby)
Uh-huh Uh-huh!
(Give it to me, baby)
Uh-huh Uh-huh!
(Give it to me, baby)
Uh-huh Uh-huh!
And all the girlies say
I'm pretty fly
(For a white guy)

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

So don't debate,
A player straight
You know he really
Doesn't get it anyway

Gotta 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 loves wannabes,
Hey, hey, do that brand new thing

Now he's getting a tattoo, yeah,
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, he's the dopest trip

(Give it to me, baby)
Uh-huh Uh-huh!
(Give it to me, baby)
Uh-huh Uh-huh!
(Give it to me, baby)
Uh-huh Uh-huh!

Uno, dos, tres, cuatro,
Cinco, cinco, seis

So don't debate,
A player straight
You know he really
Doesn't get it anyway

Gotta 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 wannabes,
The world loves wannabes,
Let's get some more wannabes
Hey, hey, do that brand new thing
