[Travie McCoy]
So many different flavors
So many shapes and sizes
You coming with me and you going where I am
No surprises, I put it all on the table for you
Nothing is too taboo, I'm ready, willing to give you everything

[Chorus]
There's a lot of pretty girls in this city
There's a lot of pretty girls in this town
I'm trying to pick the right one
I'm trying to pick the right one
Trying to find a shorty to hold me down

[Verse 1]
They say to get to New York girl
Then you gotta have a lot of class
And I heard there ain't nothing like the Cali girls
But you better have a lot of cash
And I know there ain't nothing like the A-Town girl
Cuz they know how to show you love
And no matter where I go
I gotta let them know
That this song here is about you

See I don't mean to run away
To places you would not believe
It's dealing on these pretty gals
I'm wishing you were there with me
It's simple when you smile girl
Tell me all I need to know
You can be my one and only

[Chorus]
There's a lot of pretty girls in this city
There's a lot of pretty girls in this town
I'm trying to pick the right one
I'm trying to pick the right one
I'm trying to pick the right one
I'm trying to pick the right one
Trying to find a shorty to hold me down

There's a lot of pretty girls in this city
There's a lot of pretty girls in this town
I'm trying to pick the right one
I'm trying to pick the right one
Trying to find a shorty to hold me down

Tell me is it you, girl?
Is it you, girl?

[Verse 2]
They say, To get a MIA girl,
Then you gotta have a lot of swag
I heard, To get a Down South Bell,
Then you gotta ride a Cadillac
I know, Ain't like a London girl,
Cuz they know how to party off

And no matter where I go, I gotta let you know
That this song here is about you

I don't mean to run away
Places you would not believe
It's dealing on these pretty gals
I'm wishing you were there with me
It's simple when you smile girl
Tell me all I need to know
You can be my one and only

[Chorus]
There's a lot of pretty girls in this city
There's a lot of pretty girls in this town
I'm trying to pick the right one
I'm trying to pick the right one
I'm trying to pick the right one
I'm trying to pick the right one
Trying to find a shorty to hold me down

There's a lot of pretty girls in this city
There's a lot of pretty girls in this town
I'm trying to pick the right one
I'm trying to pick the right one
Trying to find a shorty to hold me down

Tell me is it you, girl?
Is it you, girl?

[Travie McCoy]
I'm so indecisive
Trying to find a pretty girl that these shoes goes nice with
Been around the world and back, got a I4 and girls in black
But I need a chick that's gonna hold me tight like vice grip

Just make sure you need my heart how you found it
You can keep the key but the lock is around me
Baby, let's take it slow, no pulling a fast one
And you look like the type to keep my mind off the last one

[Chorus]
There's a lot of pretty girls in this city
There's a lot of pretty girls in this town
I'm trying to pick the right one
I'm trying to pick the right one
I'm trying to pick the right one
I'm trying to pick the right one
Trying to find a shorty to hold me down

There's a lot of pretty girls in this city
There's a lot of pretty girls in this town
I'm trying to pick the right one
I'm trying to pick the right one
Trying to find a shorty to hold me down

Tell me is it you, girl?
Is it you, girl?

    I think this song is about a guy who has been trying to find somebody to love for awhile, and he finally found a girl, but he wants to make sure that she's the right one for him.
