I want a girl with a mind like a diamond 
I want a girl who knows what's best 
I want a girl with shoes that cut 
And eyes that burn like cigarettes 
I want a girl with the right allocations 
Who's fast and thorough 
And sharp as a tack 
She's playing with her jewelry 
She's putting up her hair 
She's touring the facility 
And picking up slack 
I want a girl with a short skirt and a long jacket. 
I want a girl who gets up early 
I want a girl who stays up late 
I want a girl with uninterrupted prosperity 
Who uses a machete to cut through red tape 
With fingernails that shine like justice 
And a voice that is dark like tinted glass 
I want a girl with a smooth liquidation 
I want a girl with good dividends 
At Citibank we will meet accidentally 
We'll start to talk when she borrows my pen 
She wants a car with a cupholder arm rest 
She wants a car that will get her there 
She's changing her name from Kitty to Karen 
She's trading her MG for a white Chrysler La Baron
