Men in this Town

  • Is there a prince in this fable
    For a small town girl like me?
    The good ones are gone or not able
    And Matt Damon's not meant for me
    Damon's not meant for me

    I got to say
    California

    Is a place that I respect

    Come on LA, take advantage
    Give me a night that I won't forget

    I went to look
    From the Sky Bar to the Standard, nothing took
    These boys don't care
    Got a handful with their projects and with their looks

    Where are all the men in this town?
    And what's a girl supposed to do?
    Did they all run off when they knew
    That I was coming 'round, coming 'round?

    Where are all the men in this town?
    And what's a girl supposed to do?
    Did they all run off when they knew
    That I was coming 'round, coming 'round?

    Fresh
    I'm so fresh, I'm so clean
    Got the lips and got the skin
    Got the skin got that thing
    I'm so fresh and I'm so

    Is there a prince in this fable
    For a small town girl like me?
    The good ones are gone or not able
    And Matt Damon's not meant for me

    I never dreamed that I'd come here to become the next Jolie
    But I sure know there's someone
    Around somewhere who's meant to be

    Where are all the men in this town?
    And what's a girl supposed to do?
    Did they all run off when they knew
    That I was coming round, coming round?

    Where are all the men in this town?
    And what's a girl supposed to do?
    Did they all run off when they knew
    That I was coming 'round, coming 'round?

    Fresh
    I'm so fresh, I'm so clean
    Got the lips and got the skin
    Got the skin got that thing
    I'm so fresh and I'm so

    Fresh
    I'm so fresh, I'm so clean
    Got the lips and got the skin
    Got the skin got that thing
    I'm so fresh and I'm so

    So fly,
    It's a suicide, waiting, others say
    It's a suicide, waiting, yo no se
    It's a suicide, waiting, another day
    It's a suicide, waiting

    So decide, it's a suicide waiting, all this time
    It's a suicide, waiting, donde estas?
    It's a suicide, waiting, so I decided
    It's a suicide, waiting Writer/s: SHAKIRA ISABEL MEBARAK RIPOLL, JOHN HILL, SAM ENDICOTT
