He pays for sex, because he has needs,
and screw the law--
men are pigs anyway.
Oh and what he pays--
he doesn’t want a beast of paw--
his mumbling sex squeeze needs
rock tits, be lanky with swinging beads,
and he wants her close to new,
call him a pig. Anyway,
they'll do the deed any way
he chooses, even raw,
because he has needs
for penile sensitivity. His brain breeds
out of emptiness, it grows
more so each screw he does any way
any day he finds a whore to play
this fake love game, oh holy cow
he’s a cash runt of guilt who needs
to believe all men are pigs. Anyway...
