VERSE 1 – female vox

 

New Orleans,

 

How I loved New Orleans.

 

I was fresh off the farm Alabama.

 

And I wrote home to my Mama.

 

That I’d found a man straight from my dreams.

 

 

VERSE  2 – male vox

 

Red hot lovers.

 

We were such red hot lovers.

 

For my girl it was all kind of new.

 

Got a tongue stud and tattoo.

 

Felt we’d known each other for so long.

 

 

VERSE 3 – female vox

 

El Paso,

 

How I hate EL Paso.

 

Left the Big Easy when they discovered,

 

That he had a past that was checkered.

 

But I chose to pretend nothing’s wrong.

 

 

BRIDGE 1 - male vox

 

She was a real cool lady.

 

Nice car and kinda cute.

 

Her friends were somewhat shady,

 

But I didn’t give a hoot.

 

 

Then the police came to book her,

 

For some unknown misdeeds.

 

Turns out she was a hooker,

 

And I’d been living off the proceeds

 

Of a prostitute.

 

 

VERSE 4 – female vox

 

I got real sick.

 

New job but I got real sick.

 

I missed eight days which pissed off my boss.

 

So he let me go, what a loss.

 

And our rent was way past the third day.

 

 

VERSE 5 – male vox

 

So I pimped her.

 

Things got tight so I pimped her.

 

I’d say:  You’ve got a keen eye for beauty.

 

How’d you like to tap that booty?

 

For two benjamins two hours play.

 

 

BRIDGE 2 – female vox

 

My legs were always long and slim,

 

So I tried to dance the pole.

 

But they said I had no sense of rhythm,

 

So he put me out on the stroll.

 

 

Drugs made it feel more like a sport,

 

Which was something I could stand.

 

But I had no doubt if I came up short,

 

I’d feel the sting of his pimp hand.

 

 

VERSE 6 – female vox

 

Probation.

 

First offense probation.

 

But there’s no leavin’ El Paso county.

 

If I do they’ll place a bounty.

 

Life’s a bitch, makes me wanna sob.

 

 

VERSE 7 – male vox

 

So I left her.

 

Could not stay, so I left her.

 

To the court system she was a felon.

 

And I won’t go back to prison.

 

So I left her there, out of a job.

 

 

VERSE 8 – As a duet

 

That’s our story

 

Won’t you learn from our story.

 

Get a full back ground check on your lover.

 

Or one day you might just discover,

 

That your life is much like purgatory.

 

 

CLOSING

 

Both - Pimp and Ho

 

Both - Pimp and Ho

 

Both - Pimp and Ho

 

Male vox - She takes care of a john’s needs

 

Female vox - He just lives off the proceeds

 

Female vox - You might try the oldest gig

 

Male vox - If you can’t dance the pole, you dig?

 

Male vox - When her inspiration’s running low

 

Female vox - He’s got motivation for his ho.

 

Male vox – So shirk off the drugs

 

Male vox – And give the straight life a try.

 

Female vox – Or work for a thug

 

Female vox – Who wants to blacken your eye.

 

Both – You decide which way to go.

 

Both - Pimp and Ho

 

Both - Pimp and Ho

 

Both - Pimp and Ho

 

 

The End
