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, quatro, 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
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, 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
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 loves wannabe's so, 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, quatro, cinco, cinco, seis

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
The world loves wannabe's so
So let's get some more wannabe's and hey hey
Do that brand new thing
