All the girls you got lined up for you think they're number one 
You never rang me up or nuthin' 
You're always lying to everyone 
Your little black book overflows with slain and broken hearts 
You're just a Romeo. You're just a player

You cheat, you lie, you play around in fun as if it's all a game 
You're shallow, empty, lost inside, 
For you there won't be any shame 
The cue outside your door get's longer everyday 
You're ego's growing more and more than yesterday

Playa Playa, Gonna turn that body down 
Playa Playa, You're just gonna loose your crown 
Playa Playa, Your whole world turns upside down 
You're not worth much to yourself or anyone in town

Song Production Information

Bill Hamel

"Playa is a dance floor anthem for all of the girls! You have to get the girls out on the floor, don't ya? Kevin St. Croix has worked with me on many remixes over the last year and half. He's a wicked producer from the Boston area. He really helped and added his own twist to the song. Jules Mari delivers a wicked vocal that's perfect for this track. All in and all I think we created a song that all of the female gamers are gonna love!"
