Peyote sings
'Excuse me, what you looking at ?
Aren't you that ?
Yes I am, why ?
I've seen you on television
Yeah I do that stuff, helps me sell my vision
So you're a prostitute ?
I guess so would you rather I shoot ?

What you looking at ?
Aren't you that ?
Yes I am, why ?
I've seen you on television
Peyote sings
Are you rich are you wealth ?
Why you do this ?
I can't do nothing else
To be truthful to you
I don't like your voice
That's ok, neither do I
The only difference between me and you
Is that I get by

'Excuse me, what you looking at ?
Peyote sings
Do you think you're a good father to your daughter ?
Yeah, and when I'm not
I burn in fire and drown in water

'Excuse me, what you looking at ?
What you looking at ?
Peyote sings
When's your new album ?
I heard the last one's falling
I don't know, I don't listen to the charts
I listen to the calling

'Excuse me, what you looking at ?
'Excuse me, what you looking at ?

What It feel like being famous ?
Feels like a muppet in a puppet show
So why'd you do it ?
It's like I said this is all I know

'Scuse me, what you looking at ?
Peyote sings
'Scuse me can I ask you a question ?
Why'd you ask so many questions ?
I don't know I guess I need a life
Yeah Mister Chen says I need a wife
I need a crutch, no not to touch
To lean on

'Scuse me why'd you ask so many questions ?
Can I ask you a question ?
Why'd you ask so many questions ?
I don't know I guess I need a life
Yeah Mister Chen says I need a wife
I need a crutch, no not to touch
To lean on to be strong

'Scuse me, what you looking at ?
Peyote sings
'Scuse me, what you looking at ?
Peyote sings
Aren't you that ?
Yes I am, why ?
I've seen you on television
Yeah I do that stuff, helps me sell my vision
Do you prostitute ?
I guess so would you rather I shoot ?
Can I ask you a question ?
Why'd you ask so many questions ?
I don't know I guess I need a life
Yeah Mister Chen says I need a wife
A crutch, not to lean
A crutch, not touch, to lean on
What you looking at ?
'Scuse me, what you looking at ?
Peyote sings

What does fame feel like ?
It feels like a muppet in a puppet show
So why'd you do it ?
It's like I said, this is all I know

    General CommentAgain Tricky announces his bitterness of being famous and argues with a reporter or interviewer about asking him so many questions and stuff and how the media should just get a life. He also mentions his anger about the journalist bashing him about raising his daughter. A really personal song from Tricky. Reminds me of a mellow version of Tricky Kid.
