VERSE 1

 

Compensation!

 

To some, it's a dirty word.

 

Compensation!

 

But for me, it's the path that's preferred.

 

To a woman's heart,

 

Or any other part,

 

Which, with a Bentley, can be stirred.

 

There's no doubt, that's why I'm called...

 

The King of Compensation.

 

 

BRIDGE #1

 

When your ride is díbomb

 

Itís hard to be humble.

 

And go through life with your head bowed.

 

So just be cool and calm.

 

Finding a mate is no trouble,

 

When, with such a beauty, youíre endowed.

 

 

VERSE 2

 

Admiration.

 

For moi, cause I've got the toys.

 

Stimulation.

 

Cause my ride, has the vibe she enjoys.

 

Some guys feel the need to compete.

 

On the bay, in the air, and on the street.

 

But, when your ride is awful sweet.

 

You can slow down and still be...

 

The King of Compensation.

 

 

BRIDGE #2

 

Iím sure that youíve noticed

 

Before a relationship can proceed,

 

Sometime during the second date,

 

You have to discuss your 'ex'.

 

 

On my failings I stay focused.

 

Yeah, Iím very careful, indeed,

 

To never put down or berate,

 

Because attitude can perplex.

 

 

Itís likeÖĒWhat put on the stress,

 

Was all of my tennis playing.

 

She couldnít take any more.Ē

 

And I show remorse, of course.

 

 

Then itís her turn to confess,

 

And she starts off by saying,

 

Her last beau was 6í 4Ē,

 

A Marine, and hung like a horse.

 

 

Now there once was a time,

 

Iíd have reassessed my chances,

 

Hearing her speak of such a penis.

 

 

But with a speed boat thatís prime,

 

Such talk won't dissuade my advances.

 

And his wang doesnít come between us.

 

 

VERSE 3

 

Compensation!

 

So what, she's a perfect 10.

 

Compensation!

 

So you're not.  Lucky you've got an 'in'.

 

If you took the time to compensate,

 

Your love story will turn out great,

 

Then, claim the title: Potentate!

 

So my friend, go on and be...

 

The King of Compensation.

 

 

THE END
