You got in trouble, you was going to jail
Judge asking me, will I draw your bail?
I couldn't refuse 'cause I never fail
And you can't beat that with a hammer and a nail

Lookie hear, I give you everything that I could afford
You keep begging, just asking for more
I gave you a yacht but you say you wanna sail
Well, you can't beat that with a hammer and a nail
No, no, yeah

I'm not the best, not the best in town
I'll be the best till the best comes around
'Cause I promise you, I will never fail
And you can't beat that, with a hammer and a nail
Oh, you can't beat that, with a hammer and a nail
No, no, no

Well, let's see, people enjoy this now
Let's get outta here
