The Tubes

The Tubes are a San Francisco-based rock band, whose 1975 debut album included the hit single, "White Punks on Dope". During its first fifteen years or so, the band's live performances combined quasi-pornography with wild satires of media, consumerism, and politics.[citation needed] They are perhaps best-remembered for their 1983 single "She's a Beauty", a top 10 U.S. hit with a frequently-played music video in the early days of MTV and in the 1980 film Xanadu singing the rock portion of the cross-genre song "Dancin'" opposite a big band. more »

I'm your only friend in this big city 
I can make you wealthy if you'll 
Listen to me, pretty 
I've got friends that can get you 
Anything you need 
But you won't need much baby 
If you'll just listen to me 
When your bloodshot eyes see my 
Twenty-dollar tie 
Put my hand in my pocket and baby 
And I'll fish out a five spot 

Buy yourself a drink 
You might need two 
Don't need to worry 
'Cause I know just what to do 
Use my car, my brain and 
You're my oh my oh my oh mine 
You won't feel nothin' baby 
You'll be real high 
When those bloodshot eyes 
See these twenty-dollar thighs 
I'll put my hand in your pocketbook and I'll 
Slip out a $20 honey and 

Pimp--can't you control your bitches 
Ain't you got no vision 
Pimp--can't you control your bitches 
Ain't you got no vision 

I was rappin' on the phone with a 
Dude I know 
Tell me your plan, you're gonna 
Write your own show you foolish thing 
Baby you're young and you're stupid and 
I'm gonna shine it on, if you know what I mean 
This is my town and this is my number and I'm 
Directing this scene 
And of all my chicks I swear you're 
The only one I've got plans for 
We're gonna save that money 
We're gonna get away 
Close that lonely livin' door 

Pimp--can't you control your bitches 
Ain't you got no vision 
Pimp--can't you control your bitches 
Ain't you got no vision
