I'm Cinderella from the hood
Walk down the street looking so good
I'm charming and like hooks, everyone latches
So damn fabulous, everything matches
Looks that kill, I look like a million bucks
But I'm broke as fuck
Ain't nobody ever would have guessed
My life is really just one rich mess
Never bring nobody home because
Where I live is a disaster
Don't want your love or your time
Your cash is what I'm after
Where my Charmings at?
This clock's about to strike, I gotta scat
But don't try to find me in my part of town
You'll be shocked by all the shit you see going down
Squatting and never leaving,
That's just the way we do things.
I ain't ever been one of your beautiful creatures
Even though I got the looks and the bleached hair
Been eating with plastic and not silver
Too poor to ever be a lady killer.
Got nothing here to impress her
Except for maybe these rhymes and a wet t-shirt
Walk the walk because I got that swagger
But never talk the talk because I'd st-st-st-stagger.
One day I'll be more than this basic lifestyle:
Living paycheck to paycheck but dreaming wild
One day money won't make a fool of me.
When the clock strikes 12, I ain't gonna leave.
Then forget all the Charmings
Fuck 'em 'cause I got Benjamins
