Oh, oh

A scrub is a guy that thinks he's fly
And is also known as a busta (busta)
Always talkin' about what he wants
And just sits on his broke ass

So no, I don't want your number
No, I don't want to give you mine and
No, I don't want to meet you nowhere
No, I don't want none of your time and

No, I don't want no scrub
A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me
Hangin' out the passenger side
Of his best friend's ride
Trying to holla at me
I don't want no scrub
A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me
Hangin' out the passenger side
Of his best friend's ride
Trying to holla at me

Well a scrub checkin' me
But his game is kinda weak
And I know that he cannot approach me
'Cause I'm looking like class, and he's looking like trash
Can't get wit' a deadbeat ass

So no, I don't want your number
No, I don't want to give you mine and
No, I don't want to meet you nowhere
No, I don't want none of your time and

No, I don't want no scrub
A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me
Hangin' out the passenger side
Of his best friend's ride
Trying to holla at me
I don't want no scrub
A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me
Hangin' out the passenger side
Of his best friend's ride
Trying to holla at me

If you don't have a car and you're walking
Oh yes son, I'm talking to you
If you live at home with your momma
Oh yes son, I'm talking to you
If you have a shorty that you don't show love
Oh yes son, I'm talking to you
Wanna get me with no money
Oh no, I don't want no
No scrub, no scrub
No scrub, no scrub

No, I don't want no scrub
A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me
Hangin' out the passenger side
Of his best friend's ride
Trying to holla at me
I don't want no scrub
A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me
Hangin' out the passenger side
Of his best friend's ride
Trying to holla at me

See, if you can't spatially expand my horizon
Then that leaves you in the class with scrubs, never rising
I don't find it surprising
And if you don't have the G's
To please me and bounce me here to the coast of overseas
So, let me give you something to think about
Inundate your mind with intentions to turn you out
Can't forget the focus on the picture in front of me
You as clear as DVD on digital TV screens
Satisfy my appetite with something spectacular
Check your vernacular, and then I get back to ya
With diamond-like precision
Insatiable is what I envision
Can't detect acquisition
From your friend's Expedition
Mr. Big Willy, if you really want to know
Ask Chilli, could I be a silly ho?
Not really
T-Boz and all my senoritas
Are steppin' on your FILA's
But you don't hear me, though

No, I don't want no scrub
A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me
Hangin' out the passenger side
Of his best friend's ride
Trying to holla at me
I don't want no scrub
A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me
Hangin' out the passenger side
Of his best friend's ride
Trying to holla at me

    General Commentthis song was controversial during its time because it portrayed women as gold-diggers who just look for money in a relationship (this is one of the many ways the song can be interpreted). i personally agree with posters before me (klinky / idntfcklosers / honestfi) - whenever i listened to this song, i always interpreted it as a woman (who was probably good-looking and had a future laid out for her) being tired of getting picked up by trashy, jerky assholes that weren't getting anywhere. "tryin' to holler at me" is indication of a guy who resorts to lowly cheap ways to get booty. i'm not sure which woman would ever want that - sure it's picky, but it's not conceited.

    General CommentThis song is not conceited. They don't want scrubs.
    You know, the ones who hit on you hanging out of the car. But don't have a real job, don't know how to treat their girlfriends, and still live at home because they can't get their act together.

    Who wants that? No one. So are they conceited? No

    General Commentyea.. here it is..


    See, if you can't spatially expand my horizon
    Then that leaves you in a class with scrubs never risin'
    I don't find it surprisin'
    If you don't have the g's
    To please me and bounce from here to the coast of overseas
    So, let me give you somethin' to think about
    Inundate your mind with intentions to turn you out
    Can't forget the focus on the picture in front of me
    You as clear as DVD on digital TV screen
    Satisfy my appetite with something spectacular
    Check your vernacular
    And then I get back to ya
    With diamond like precision
    Insatiable is what I envision
    Can't detect acquisition
    From your friend's expedition
    Mr. Big Willy if you really wanna know
    Ask Chilli, could I be a silly ho
    Not really, T-Boz and all my senoritas
    Is steppin' on your Filas
    But you don't hear me though

    General CommentThis song seems to say that if you're a guy and you ain't got money, you're nothing. A reaffirming song for any guy who is unsuccessfully dating, unemployed or can't afford real estate in his area.
