Song Lyrics

[Nate Dogg]


I`ve got hoes

I`ve got hoes, in different area codes (area, area

hoes, hoes,hooooes in different area codes (area, area


Now you thought I was just 7-7-0

And 4-0-4, I`m worldwide biotch, act like yall don`t know

It`s the abominabol "ho" man

Globe-trot international post man

Neighbor-dick dope man

7-1-8s, 2-0-2`s

I send small cities and states I-O-U`s

9-0-1, matter fact 3-0-5

I`ll jump off the g-4, we can meet outside

So control your hormones and keep your drawers on

`Til I close the door and I`m jumping your bones

3-1-2, 3-1-3, 2-1-5, 8-0-3

Read your hor-oscope and eat some hor-derves

Ten I pump one these hoes is self serve

7-5-7, 4-1-0, my cell phone just overloads



Now everyday is a ho-ly-day

So stop the violence and put the 4-4 away, keeps you to hold today

5-0-4, 9-7-2

7-1-3, whatcha gon do

You checkin up the scene, I`m checkin a ho tonight

With perpendicular vehicular homicide

3-1-4, 2-0-1

Too much green, too much fun

I bang #### in Bangkok

Can`t stop, I turn and hit the same spot

Thank not, I`m the thrilla in Manilla,

Schlong in Hong Kong

Pimp em like bishop, magic Don Juan

Man after Henny with a coke and a smile

I just pick up the muthaf**kin phone and dial

I got my condoms in a big-ass-sack

I`m slaggin this dick like a New Jack, biotch

[Nate Dogg]

Is it cuz they like my gangsta walk?[gangsta walk]

Is it cuz they like my gangsta talk?[gangsta talk]

Is it cuz they like my handsome face?[handsome face]

Is it cuz they like my gangsta ways?[gangsta ways]

Whatever it is, they love it

And they just won`t let me be

I handle my biz, don`t rush me

Just relax and let me be free

Whenever I call, [i call] come running

2-1-2 or 2-1-3

You know that I ball, [i ball] stop frontin

`For I call a substitute freak



9-1-6, 4-1-5, 7-0-4

Shout out to the 2-0-6

Everybody in the 8-0-8

2-1-6, 7-0-2, 4-1-4

3-1-7, 2-1-4s and the 2-8-1s

3-3-4, 2-0-5, I see ya`ll

3-1-8, 6-0-1s, 2-0-3

8-0-4, 4-0-2, 3-0-1

9-0-4, 4-0-7, 8-5-0
