Chilli:
A scrub is a guy that thinks he's fly
And is also known as a buster
Always talkin' about what he wants
And just sits on his broke ass
So (no)

Chilli & T-Boz:
I don't want your number (no)
I don't want to give you mine and (no)
I don't want to meet you nowhere (no)
I don't want none of your time and (no)

Chorus:
Chilli & T-Boz:
I don't want no scrub
A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me
Hangin' out the passenger side
Of his best friend's ride
Tryin' to holla at me
I don't want no scrub
A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me
Hangin' out the passenger side
Of his best friend's ride
Tryin' to holler at me

There's a scrub checkin' me
But his game is kinda weak
And I know that he cannot approach me
Cause I'm lookin' like class and he's lookin' like trash
Can't get wit' a dead-beat ass
So (no)

I don't want your number (no)
I don't want to give you my mine and (no)
I don't want to meet you nowhere (no)
I don't want none of your time (no)

Chorus

Chilli:
If you don't have a car and you're walking
Chilli & T-boz left eye:
Oh yes son I'm talkin' to you
Chilli:
If you live at home wit' your momma
Chilli, T-boz &Left Eye:
Oh yes son I'm talkin' to you (baby)
Chilli:
If you have a shorty but you don't show love
Chilli, T-boz &Left Eye:
Oh yes son I'm talkin' to you
Chilli:
Wanna get with me with no money
Oh no I don't want no (oh)

Chilli, T-boz:
No scrub
No scrub (no no)
No scrub (no no no no no)
No scrub (no no)
No

Chorus

Left eye:
If you can't spacially expand my horizons
Then that leaves you in a class with scrubs
Neva rising
I don't find it surprising if you don't have the g's
To please me and bounce from here to the coast of over seas
So, let me give you something to think about insinuate your mind
With intentions to turn you out
Lets get the focus on the picture in front of me
To get as clear as dvd on digital TV screens
Satisfy my appatite with somthing spectacular
Check your venacular
Then I'll get back to ya
With diamond like insisions
Insenseable is what I ambition
Can detect acquisition
From your friends expedition
Mister if you really want to know
Ask chilli could I be a silly hoe?
That being t-boz and all my senoritas
Steppin to your fealis
But you don't hear me no

Chorus:
Chilli & T-Boz:
I don't want no scrub
A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me
Hangin' out the passenger side
Of his best friend's ride
Tryin' to holla at me
I don't want no scrub
A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me
Hangin' out the passenger side
Of his best friend's ride
Tryin' to holler at me

Chorus:
Chilli & T-Boz:
I don't want no scrub
A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me
Hangin' out the passenger side
Of his best friend's ride
Tryin' to holla at me
I don't want no scrub
A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me
Hangin' out the passenger side
Of his best friend's ride
Tryin' to holler at me

    When I was little, this used to be my song. It means that they don't want a man who can't provide for them, and who can't be successful. She wants a real man. Not a dope.
