[Black Thought]
and yes y'all youre all rocking with the best Black Thought from the ledgendary Roots crew in the flesh
i slid up in here with the brothers from the Marley familly crest and we gonna sing for yall

[Stephen Marley]
she loves to party, have a good time
she looks so hearty, feeling fine!
she loves to smoke (\"sumtime shiftin'coke!\")
she's a laughin' when there ain't no joke

[Damian Marley]
[chorus]
pimpa's paradise
stephen: that's all she was now
pimpa's paradise
stephen: that's all she was
pimpa's paradise
stephen: that's all she was now
pimpa's paradise
stephen: that's all she was...

[Damian]
cause coke was her ting that when she first try was once a blue moon to once a blue sky
now she's wonderin who else wants to go buy 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 shes similar
a waste of mi saucy perilier
used to look good in the videos now she look hideous
now its broken crack pipes with lipstick traces walk the cold night red district places
she seen more hotels than my tour suitcases
or male customers than Old Navy's
she love limelight more than John Swaybis
seen more miles than I rent at AVIS
she don't slow down then someday maybe
she lost then she can't find her way to safety

[chorus]

[Black Thought]
check it out- she keep her head up in space like a satellite
because she got an insatiable appetitie
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 sacrafice
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 tune
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 and enjoyed herself
i don't know what drove her to aviod herself
destroyed herself and took a taste of the yay
and now she on the track 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 dis...

[chorus]

[Damian Marley]
for no reason a seasoned spliff was the first thing
one spring season while she out flirtin
now she season me and don't need rehearsin
her skin get a beatin life is uncertained
ego need feedin now no one's mercy
beneath the demons she's a warm person
when she's not fiendin, swearin and cursin
behing the curtain she's really hurtin
and while her people don't even trust her at home
di dealer dem bring and cook the rocks down
and she without sin will spark the first stone
the feelin kicks in she's in the dark zone
old friends walk pass goin bout their own
as if she is someone that they don't know
then the king of kings lift her off the flo
saying life is a ting when you learn you grow

[chorus]

[Damian & Stephen]
she rise and she 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 to take it too far
although she a gwan make it too far
she rise and she fall like a star
her life ride out 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 wanna take it to far
mi wonder if she make it so far, wuoy

    General Comment"and stoned at the buildin refused"

    Shouldn't that be "the stone that the builder refused"?
    That's what it sounds like.. and Bob sung that quite a bit too ("..shall be the headcorner stone")

    Though being stoned and refused entry at a club fits too..


    Great song though.
