Pimpa's Paradise

Damian Marley

And yes y'all, you now rockin with the best 
Black Thought from the legendary Roots crew in the flesh 
I slid up in here with the brothers from the Marley family, crestin, we 'gon set for y'all 

Hey! She loves to party, have a good time 
She looks so hearty, feeling fine 
She loves to smoke, sometimes shifting coke 
She's laughing when there ain't no joke, hey!!! 

(Pimpa's paradise) That's all she was now 
(Pimpa's paradise) That's all she was 
(Pimpa's paradise) That's all she was, now 
(Pimpa's paradise) That's all she was 

Cause coke was a thing that once she first tried 
Was once a blue moon to once a blue sky 
And now she's wonderin who else wants to go by 
She don't got no money and wants to get high 
Story sounds familiar like born to be wild 
But she sillier, not quite the same but she similiar 
A waste of a saucy perilier 
Used to look good in the videos now she look hideous 
Now it's broken crack pipes with lipstick traces 
Work the cold nights red district places 
She seen more hotels then my tour suitcases 
Or male customers than Old Navy 
She love limelight more than John Swayze 
Seen more miles than I rent an AV 
She don't slow down then some day maybe 
She lost then she can't find her way to safety 

(Pimpa's paradise) That's all she was now 
(Pimpa's paradise) That's all she was 
(Pimpa's paradise) That's all she was, now 
(Pimpa's paradise) That's all she was 

Check it out! She keep her head up in space like a satellite 
Because she got a insatiable appetite 
For stayin out late night with all the parasites 
Plottin on the way to cop a little piece of paradise 
Her dignity the only thing that she could sacrifice 
Just get the monkey off her back and she be back in like 
Five minutes, she stay on the move 
She looked smoked up, and stoned at the buildin refused 
All coked up, alone she ain't even in tuned 
And it's sad cause she ain't really have a reason to use 
She was a pretty girl cleaner than the board of health studied than enjoyed herself 
I don't know what drove her to avoid herself 
Destroyed herself and took a taste of the yay 
And now she on the track workin while she wastin away 
It's safe to say she lookin for some place to stay 
Whoever got a lil' paper to play could get a slice of this.... 

(Pimpa's paradise) That's all she was now 
(Pimpa's paradise) That's all she was 
(Pimpa's paradise) That's all she was, now 
(Pimpa's paradise) That's all she was 

For no reason a seasoned spliff was the first thing 
One spring season while she's out flirtin 
Now she season me and don't need rehearsin 
And seen get a beaten life is uncertained 
Ego need feedin now no one's mercy 
Beneath the demons she's a one person 
When she's not fiendin swearin and cursin 
Behind the curtain she's really hurtin 
And while her people don't even trust her at home 
The dealer that bring and cook the rock down 
And she without sinnin will spot the first stone 
The feelin kicks in she's in the dark zone 
Old friends walk pass goin bout there own 
As if she is someone that they don't know 
Then the King Of Kings lift her off the flo' 
Sayin life is a thing when you learn you grow 

[Chorus: Stephen Marley] (Background Singers) 
(Pimpa's paradise) That's all she was now 
(Pimpa's paradise) That's all she was 
(Pimpa's paradise) That's all she was, now 
(Pimpa's paradise) That's all she was 

[Outro: Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley & Stephen Marley] 
She rise and fall like a star, her life ride off like a car 
Her face full of all kind of scar, always with fist start a war 
She can't keep herself up to par, she plays like a broken guitar 
She always want take it to far 
Although she ain't go make it too far 
She rise and fall like a star, her life ride off like a car 
Her face full of all kind of scar, always with fist start a war 
She can't keep herself up to par, she plays like a broken guitar 
She always want take it to far 
Mi wonder if she make it so far, wuy!!!!
