"Hustler" as written by James Ellis Ford, James Anthony Shaw and Charleen Jere Johnson....
I'm a hustler, baby
That's what my daddy's made me
Yeah, I'm a hustler, baby
That's what my daddy's made me

I'm a hustler, baby
That's what my daddy's made me
Yeah, I'm a hustler, baby
That's what my daddy's made me

I'm a hustler, baby
That's what my daddy's made me
Yeah, I'm a hustler, baby
That's what my daddy's made me

If I had the money to go
To a record store I would, I, I would
If I had the money to go
To a record store I would, I, I would

Go to the record store
Go to the record store
Go to the record store
Put the records in my clothes

Go to the record store
Go to the record store
[Incomprehensible] record
Go past that record man

Go to a record store
Put it in my clothes
And walk past that record man
Got to have the sticky hands

Your ass is broke
Your ass is broke
Like me, like me

Go to that record store
Steal some record, man
Go to that record store
Steal some records, man

I'm telling you I'm broke
I'm telling you I'm broke
But I'm surviving and
And I can cope

Yeah, I'm a hustler, baby
That's what my daddy's made me
Yeah, I'm a hustler, baby
That's what my daddy's made me

Yeah, I'm a hustler, baby
That's what my daddy's made me
Yeah, I'm a hustler, baby
That's what my daddy's made me

Gotta do what you gotta do
To survive
Gotta take what you gotta take
To stay alive

Gotta do what you gotta do
To survive
Gotta make what you gotta make
To stay alive

It's 8 o' clock
And I got nothing to do
Can't go to the club

So I guess I'll go to the record store
Visit my record man
With my sticky hands

Walk out that record door
Put your records in my clothes
The records in my clothes

What the fuck is you gonna do?
What the fuck is you gonna do
About it? Nothing

Push it, push it, push it, push it
Push it, push it, push it, push it
Push it, push it, push it, push it
Push it, push it, push it, push it

    General CommentI guess it's about a young girl whose dad (or possibly her bf?) refuses to give her any pocket money. She needs music to survive so she goes and jacks records from the record store. What an awesome song - play this in all my sets!

    My InterpretationIt's about electro.

    “'Hustler,' [...] reflects the root for the term 'electro,' and has a few applications when making assumptions concerning the origins of it, as a genre and wonderful way to spend an evening out with friends or a good group of associates. 'To combine form' would be a standard clue as to who may or may not jot a few ideas down in a song, longing for a sound that has never, to date, existed.

    Enjoying this track is about understanding how, lyrically, the empirical evidence stating clearly, most people who hold this music and genre dear if not necessary, it is an emerging style difficult to find in high quality.

    This is something lingering on the senses, almost a feeling or vibe but reminiscent of BT’s 'Heaven Scent,' or any other progressive, ground-breaking track defining the lining of the cloud where kids who are in the know can proudly tout a new viewpoint on music in the car or in their world in general.
    While all of this music converges to swerve one way or another, metaphorically speaking, the driving force behind a majority of thematic undertones defining the type of sound a person can lose it to, dancing or romancing the idea that a few musical directions mention vision and are as solid as a truck is where it becomes clear that the point in this electro genre is to create rather than imitate, to move forward rather than backward."
