  • I like to sneak a drink, and roll my smoke
    You see I like my collars pressed
    I wear big ol' hats, and fancy ties
    And I hang late with my friends

    I can take it on the chin with a cheshire grin
    I'm a sinner, VIP
    You know I like mixed drinks
    I likes what I thinks
    I think you know just what I mean

    You know that heroes and legends are one and the same
    Its-a how you play the game
    You see, I'm no fool, I'm from the old school
    It's the fire from the flame

    I like a big ol' car, and fine cigars
    You know I'll pick your pockets clean
    I'm a snake-eye rollin', big league bowlin'
    And I clean up on the green

    I got the Jack, the Ace, the King and Queen
    You know, I like my women mean
    Cause I'm a big time operatin'
    Never ever hesitatin' sinner VIP
    Cause I'm a big time operatin'
    Never ever hesitatin' sinner VIP

    I like sneakin' a drink, and roll my smoke
    You see I like my collars pressed
    I wear big ol' hats, and fancy ties
    And I hang late with my friends

    I got the Jack, the Ace, the King and Queen
    You know, I like my women mean
    Cause I'm a big time operatin'
    Never ever hesitatin' sinner VIP
    Cause I'm a big time operatin'
    Never ever hesitatin' sinner VIP Writer/s: SCOTT MORRIS
