Cuff me up sir I'm mad
At the relationshop I got
Between my ass and your badge
I smoke, but I'm not into candy no-class
Though there might be some illegal shit
In my meat dress, I've got guns,
up under my thumbs
Manicure is slick
You mad that my tips longer than your *click*?
Just a freedom hussy
Rebel fashion junkie
And I wanna serve my country
In the best way that I could be
So don't ask, 'cause I'll tell
you I'm free, while you dwell
Throw your hands up in the crowd
Cause if you're bad kid and you're proud
