Katy Perry – If You Can Afford Me lyrics

If you want me, a cherry on top,
The pick of the peck, The crиme de la crop.
If you want me you better do better than that tonight.
Oh, Oh.

If you want me, it takes more than a wink,
And more than a drink and more than you think.
If you want me you're gonna have to break the bank, tonight.

'Cause some don't have the patience,
Some call me high-maintenance
But you pay the bill, 'cause, that's the deal.

If you wanna ride, just name your price,
And don't play cheap with your heart
Don't make a bet if you can't write the cheque, for me, for me.
'Cause I can be bought, but you'll pay the cost
If you can afford me

If you want me, I'm not a piece of ass,
A one night stand, a storage she'd
I think you better walk by, tonight
Oh, no.

If you want me, then stop begging
I don't put out for charity
If you want me there's no discount price tonight.

But I don't need your dollar bills
I just want something real
'Cause nothing's free, except a lovin' me

If you wanna ride, just name your price,
And don't play cheap with your heart
Don't make a bet if you can't write the cheque, for me, for me.
'Cause I can be bought, but you'll pay the cost
If you can afford me

If you want me, a cherry on top,
The pick of the peck, the crиme de la crop

If you wanna ride, just name your price,
And don't play cheap with your heart
Don't make a bet if you can't write the cheque, for me, for me.
'Cause I can be bought, but you'll pay the cost
If you can afford me

If you wanna ride, just name your price,
And don't play cheap with your heart
Don't make a bet if you can't write the cheque, for me, for me.
'Cause I can be bought, but you'll pay the cost
If you can afford me

    No people she's not singing about being a prostitute. She's talking about being in a relationship. She's letting him know that even if it's a temporary thing, she wants him to put forth the effort. Every relation has it's cost. Like a plant it won't grow if you don't take care of it. Actually take the time to take care. It's not easy. The guy might be looking for a one night stand, she lets him know what she wants. She doesn't want some disgusting pig, so even if she agrees to this one night stand, she wants him to make it worth her while.
    Maybe that's it. But I will definitely turn pink if she is indeed talking about prostitution.
