    I saw her,
    short, chocolate colored skin
    form across a room
    but that couldn't show
    me what intentions lie behind those eyes.
    I met her, introduced myself
    thought I was the Mac
    but the simple fact that I made cash
    like most brotha's produce lies
    didn't seem to fase her
    the fact that I caught cabs
    and hitched rides from friends didn't
    darken her view of me.
    then she dissappeared

    Six weeks after a six week afair
    I saw her again
    in a dance outfit, in a club
    hugged up with someone who
    made her
    paid to be with her
    but I wanted her
    so I bought a dance from her
    a quiet time to romance her
    her conversation verged on
    on tricks and getting high
    Pimps and livin' right
    when the song was off she was gone

    I guess everybody wants to get by
    wants to get high
    wants to try to be
    but only getting by
