I was at this club minding my tea

I saw this fine young thing so I thought that I would see

---> Play Verse 1 over:

I don't smoke but I asked her for a cigarette

I know it's lame but I haven't got a better one yet

---> Play Verse 1 (quiet) over:

You guess the rest I'm not the type to fess

I sing this song because I tell you she's the best

---> Play Chorus over:

That slinky girl is in my brain

Now I'll never be the same

No one can ever see

What that slinky girl means to me

Mackadocious she's sweet and precocious

She's the one girl that I just dig, love, yes I'm not above this

You think that's wack then bro you lack

You bore me that macho crap makes me snore, see, me,

I'm all about the females, the women, the jewels of this world

Those flowers like that slinky girl

All right break it down

311's in the house whether you like it or not

Nineteen-ninety whatever

Here we go

---> No guitar over:

Well I met her one night I'd seen her before

She stole my brain then showed me the door

Girls that do me like that there's not many

But I've met one, that's plenty

I'm glad to say that she gets her way

She can move me and that's okay

Has the power to turn paper inky

The girl has me and she's so

Now I'll never be the same

No one can ever see
