    There once was a chick
    Who turned a trick
    She did it on a dare
    She just didn't care

    No big deal
    It wasn't all that
    In and out
    Kinda like a drive through
    Without getting it supersized

    Twenty minutes max
    He didn't make her scream
    He didn't make her holler
    She found herself a new career
    When he gave her 200 dollars

    Fine
    Devine
    She had class, style and grace
    Beautiful eyes
    Deeply set in her majestic face

    Soon 200 dollars
    Only paid for her presence
    A small price to pay for her elegant charm
    Made him feel special, big, important
    Just to have her on his arm

    Five star restaurants
    Gala events
    She was there
    A friend of Mr. So and so
    A guest of Dr. So and so
    No one ever knew her name
    Golden is what she called herself
    The top of the ladder in the escort game

    She knew how to be a sexy lady
    With womanly skill she treated a man nice
    But only if this man could pay the lady's price
    And though seemingly safe, professional and discrete
    She may just as well been tricking on the street

    A trick is a trick, is a trick
    A body is bought
    A body is sold
    No benefits
    No health care plan
    Tricking gets harder
    As the trickster gets old

    She tricked for 20 years
    Saved and saved
    A tidy sum was safely put away
    Knowing that tricking would end one day

    That day is here as she sits on the beach
    All alone
    No one to call friend
    After all that money
    After all those men
