Damn, sometimes we lose some good ones man, y'know?
They don't really understand this playerism
Just gotta break it down to 'em, keep it real y'know?
I'm a P F L, sworn to the P.I.

I spent so many days with you, so many nights
It's nice, I wanted you to be my only wife
We didn't make it, I couldn't take it
I tried to square up, it's too hard I couldn't fake it

And now I see why, since I was knee high
I swore to live and die by the P.I.
And I'm stayin' true, born in this game and it's payin' too
I wish I could have stayed witchu

But it's over, I love you and I still care
We can kick it any time, but I'm still a player
Damn, you got that look I like
I tried to settle down, it felt like you took my life

I left town, I got women all around
While I was out soul searchin', guess what I found?
The more hoes the merrier, you think I wanna marry her?
Bitch that sounds scarier and scarier

I need to have a few wives
'Cause I don't wanna come home and tell you lies
In my heart I think I found her, if she feels the same
You think I've changed, think I'd play her if I'm still in the game?

Hell yeah! One woman, I don't think so
I let the game be my wife and I'm faithful
I never do her wrong, I never cheat on her
And if the game was baseball, I'd be on first

I see you watchin' this
I know it looks real fly up in here
But what's a pimp?
I say, but what's a pimp?

They wanna be like this
I know it looks real fly up in here
But what's a pimp?
I say, but what's a pimp?

It's like this, I don't lie, I told you what I felt at the time
I wasn't high, I know you see yourself in my rhymes
A lot of women I dealt with, could hear these words
And realize there's no way I could still be hers

Unless you wanna share me with a hot one named Terrie
And don't get mad at me when I'm out poppin' cherries
I know some ladies they just wanna have babies
Collect child support from rich men in Mercedes

It's cool but that's not what players do
Get with me, those days are over, I swear it's true
You're through, havin' sex for nothin'
Hopin' some day some man'll give you somethin'

Your own bank account, don't laugh, it's not funny
You only fucked with him 'cause he got a lotta money
But you never get paid, don't lie to me
You just look good and you get to ride for free

What you eat and what you drink, you trade for sex
Pick you up in the Benz, next day in the Lex
Are you happy? Do you think you're on a roll?
Do you love your life? Are you achievin' any goals?

Or are you sad, mad 'cause it ain't your way?
Call mom and dad, they'll be glad that you ain't gon' stay
Or call me, I got a solution
Choose me and then hit the top with your new man

I see you watchin' this
I know it looks real fly up in here
But what's a pimp?
I say, but what's a pimp?

They wanna be like this
I know it looks real fly up in here
But what's a pimp?
I say, but what's a pimp?

I don't have fantasies, just needs
I need more than one woman to please
And she's like a love roller coaster, the thrill never lasts
And I always seem to find some better ass

Some bitch that can suck better, get wetter
She got them super skills to do anything you let her
So I'm done with you, I still care
I love you baby but I'm still a player

I always been aware and I never been scared
Found some magazines, on the top they said Players
I was young but I was old and I wanted those hoes
Found out playin' with girls was mo' fun with no clothes

You can call it what you want to, 'Doctor' or 'House'
'Hide and go get it', then I'm knockin' it out
If she ain't widdit, I find another little chick
I'm quick to switch, even when I was six

I had a backup bitch, when my bitch would trip
I'd go play with my other girlfriend and get me a kiss
And at the age of thirty-six I'm to the same old tricks
Too Short, baby, no the game don't quit

I'm playin' games with these lame brains
Treatin' superstars like some plane Janes
I wanna get new thangs so I used the game to maintain
Bitch I refuse to change

I see you watchin' this
I know it looks real fly up in here
But what's a pimp?
I say, but what's a pimp?

They wanna be like this
I know it looks real fly up in here
But what's a pimp?
I say, but what's a pimp?

Minks and pinky rings and them some
So why should you begin livin' the world that they are perceivin'
Is everything that you see really good enough to be
Part of the pimp life

I see you watchin' this
I know it looks real fly up in here
But what's a pimp?
I say, but what's a pimp?

They wanna be like this
I know it looks real fly up in here
