Scandal maker

But he's telling lies
Cause he's into me
He knows I want to be 

Headline hustler
Scandal maker
Headline hustler
Money taker 

If your brother's wearing dresses
And your neighbor's swapped his wife
Well, I'm gonna make the headlines
With your private life
With your other wife 

Headline hustler
Scandal maker
Headline hustler
Money taker
Headline hustler
Scandal maker
Headline hustler
Money taker
