Lyrics:

You know I'm bad, the times I've had
I got a bad reputation
I don't care, I get my share
Don't feel no deprivation
I don't!

The more I get, the better it is
I like it fine, I like a little whizz
Treat'em like ladies and that's a fact
You know the chase is better than the catch
You know!

The silver tongued devil, demon lynch
I know just what I'm doing
I like a little innocent bitch
You know I ain't just screwin'
I aint!

I love you baby, I know you're too much
I like you fine, I feel your touch
But your appearance don't hold no class
You know the chase is better than the catch
You know!

A little beauty, I love you madly 
Come on home with me
I know you're hot, I know what you've got
You know I wanna shake your tree
They know!

Come on honey, touch me right there
Come on honey, don't you get scared
Come on honey, let me get you in the sack
You know the chase is better than the catch
You know!
