  • Who's that gigolo on the street
    With his hands in his pockets and his crocadile feet
    Hanging off the curb, looking all disturbed
    At the boys from home, they all came running
    They were making noise, manhandling toys
    That's the girls on the block with the nasty curls
    Wearing padded bras sucking beers through straws
    Dropping down their drawers, where did you get yours?

    Gigolo, Huh, sukka?
    Gigolo. Gigolo, Huh, sukka?

    Who's looking good today?
    Who's looking good in every way?
    No style rookie
    You better watch don't mess with me

    No moneyman can win my love
    It's sweetness that I'm thinking of
    We always hang in a Buffalo Stance
    We do the dive every time we dance
    I'll give you love baby not romance
    I'll make a move nothing left to chance
    So don't you get fresh with me

    Get funky. Yeah Timmy
    Tell it like it is. Check out this DJ

    So you say you wanted money but you know it's never funny
    When your shoes worn through and there's a rumble in your tummy
    But you had to have style get a gold tooth smile
    Put a girl on the corner so you can make a pile
    Committed a crime and went inside
    It was coming your way but you had to survive
    When you lost your babe, you lost the race
    Now you're looking at me to take her place

    Who's looking good today?
    Who's looking good in every way?
    No style rookie
    You better watch don't mess with me

    No moneyman can win my love
    It's sweetness that I'm thinking of
    We always hang in a Buffalo Stance
    We do the dive every time we dance
    I'll give you love baby not romance
    I'll make a move nothing left to chance
    So don't you get fresh with me

    Smokin', not tokin', get funky sax
    Looking good, hanging with the wild bunch
    Looking good in a Buffalo Stance
    Looking good when it comes to the crunch
    Looking good's a state of mind
    State of mind don't look behind you
    State of mind or you'll be dead
    State of mind may I remind you
    Bomb the Bass, rock this place!
    What is he like? What's he like anyway?
    Yo man what do you expect, the guy's a gigolo man
    You know what I mean?

    No moneyman can win my love
    It's sweetness that I'm thinking of
    We always hang in a Buffalo Stance
    We do the dive every time we dance
    I'll give you love baby not romance
    I'll make a move nothing left to chance
    So don't you get fresh with me

    No moneyman can win my love
    It's sweetness that I'm thinking of
    We always hang in a Buffalo Stance
    We do the dive every time we dance
    I'll give you love baby not romance
    I'll make a move nothing left to chance
    So don't you get fresh with me

    Wind on my face, sound in my ears
    Water from my eyes, and you on my mind
    As I sink, diving down deep, deeper into your soul

    No moneyman can win my love
    It's sweetness that I'm thinking of

    No moneyman can win my love
    It's sweetness that I'm thinking of

    No moneyman can win my love
    No moneyman can win my love
    No moneyman can win my love
