"What Can I Do For You" as written by David Francis Baerwald and Sheryl Suzanne Crow....
I'm so glad you're awake
That you're not like the others
'Cause they're so straight-laced
And no fun
Gosh that's nice
That lingerie
Makes me feel like
Oh, I don't know

You're a very pretty thing
You remind me of someone
You must have heard
Some awful nasty things about me, but

What I can do for you
There's no one else
On God's green earth can do
What I can do for you
There's no one else
On God's green earth can do

Just ask anybody
They'll tell you that it's true
There's no one else on earth
Can do the things that I can do for you

You're never gonna make it
All by yourself
You're gonna need a friend
You're gonna need my help
I have so much to offer
If you just be nice
If you do what I say
And don't make me say it twice

Do you mind if I just
Rub my hand up thus
Come on just my hand
Come on just my hand
You got to understand
I'm gonna be your man
I'm gonna be your man
You're gonna need me

    General CommentThis song is about a Pimp trying to get a young voulnerable girl to trust him and maniplate her to become a prostitue. I'm gonna be youre man means she's gonna work for him. He makes her feel special at first and then tells her how she's doomed without him and at the end he turns forcesful.

    General CommentObviously this is a song about SC fending off Frank Dileo - see "Na-Na" song for confirmation

    General CommentWow. I guess because it was SC, I figured it was about a music exec trying to get some play with her, a little quid pro quo, you know. But the pimp aspect makes even more sense. I can't believe I didn't see that. (especially since I'm a pimp, you can check my stats)
