"Pool Shark"

I slink around the tables looking for someone to hustle
It's been a couple days since I last flexed my shooting muscle
I miss the easy shots on purpose for a rack or two
But when there's money on the table then I'll follow through
I never ever let them know that they are getting conned
They'll catch on quickly when I start to wave my magic wand
Yeah, life is good when you're the big fish in a small pond
I'm a Pool Shark, baby

I’m a Pool Shark, baby

I’m a Pool Shark, baby

I’m a Pool Shark, baby...yeah

I circle round the tables looking for my latest victim
You've got to really know their weaknesses before you pick them
I set my sights on someone who looks like they flirt with danger
Then test the water by suggesting that we place a wager
I take it easy making only shots that fortune sends me
But they start talking trash about my game and that offends me
I think it's time that I begin my feeding frenzy
I'm a Pool Shark, baby

I'm a Pool Shark, baby

I’m a Pool Shark, baby

I’m a Pool Shark, baby

Yeah, yeah, yeah!


Well, you can think that you're as good as you want
But when it's over I'm the king of the hunt
Come on and try me if you think you've got skill
Cause on the six-pocket ocean I am moving in for the kill
Moving in for the kill!

I search around the table planning out the way to run it
I love the look upon their loser face once I have done it
I sink the eight and smile and say that it's beyond believing
When I could beat them blind, behind my back, but I'm deceiving
They take their wallets out and you know that's a bad decision
Cause I know angles baby, better than a mathematician
Blood's in the water when I bait my hook for fishin'
I'm a Pool Shark, baby

I'm a Pool Shark, baby

I’m a Pool Shark, baby

I’m a Pool Shark, baby

Yeah, yeah, yeah!

Well, you can think that you're as good as you want
But when it's over I'm the king of the hunt
Come on and try me if you think you've got skill
Cause on the six-pocket ocean I am moving in for the kill
Moving in for the kill, oh yeah, yeah, yeah!

"Let's see, which shot should I make first?
I'll take the one in the side, two in the corner
Three downtown, then the four
Followed by the five, six, seven, eight!"

Ooh, ooh, ooh, I'm a Pool Shark, baby
Ooh, ooh, ooh, I'm a Pool Shark, baby
Ooh, ooh, ooh, I'm a Pool Shark, baby
Ooh, ooh, ooh, I'm a Pool Shark!
"Wanna play?"
