You know it's kind of hard
Our subject isn't cool
He may not have a clue
But everything he lacks

You know he really doesn't get it anyway
For you no way, for you no way
At least you'll know you can always go on Ricki Lake
So do that brand new thing
Give it to me baby
Give it to me baby

Not just any will suffice
So he bought Vanilla Ice
But if he looks twice

He's gettin' ink done
Friends say he's trying too hard
But in his own mind

You know he really doesn't get it anyway
For you no way, for you no way
At least you'll know you can always go on Ricki Lake
The world loves wannabe's
And do that brand new thingYou know it's kind of hard
Our subject isn't cool
He may not have a clue
But everything he lacks

You know he really doesn't get it anyway
For you no way, for you no way
At least you'll know you can always go on Ricki Lake
So do that brand new thing
Give it to me baby
Give it to me baby

Not just any will suffice
So he bought Vanilla Ice
But if he looks twice

He's gettin' ink done
Friends say he's trying too hard
But in his own mind

You know he really doesn't get it anyway
For you no way, for you no way
At least you'll know you can always go on Ricki Lake
The world loves wannabe's
And do that brand new thing
