Do you know the importance of a skypager?
Those who don't believe, see you're laid behind
Hurry up and get yours 'cause I got mine
If you're with a G and you're sippin wine
Gotta meet your lover at a quarter to 9

The 'S' in skypage really stands for sex
Keep my bases loaded like the New York Mets
Having bad days like a voodoo hex
'Cause I be standing by the phone ready to flex
Uh, so funky, uh, so funky, uh, so funky
The batteries I use are called Duracell
Don't be going through no phases my joint stays on
If you're in Costa Rica on a sunlit beach
A number of importance, I just put it on lock

Well it kinda is, 'cause it makes me scoul
Brothers know it hurts when you're on the prowl
Get paged by a G or a business pal
Another page, so I'll just end this now
