I Got It (What You Need) ~ Galactic and Lyrics Born

I’ve been trying to figure out he lyrics for this awesome funk song. Can you help me?

You got to step [out | up ] on the corner, man. You know I got what you need, baby.

[something] Oh!

[Chorus]

You want it? Baby, I got it.
You need it? Baby, come get it.

You want it? Baby, I got whatchya need, watchya need, watchya need, watchya need?

[Repeat Chorus]

Uh!

I got headphones.
I got [tempo[s] | tent poles].
I got ten toes with ingrowns.
I got [pimples | fishbowls | pit bulls].

You hit the jackpot, man.
You [win big’n some | in the end zone].
How much you want to spend, babe?
That’s all it depends on.

Banjo stings, and [sandal] strings.
Ham strings, candle strings, and cuff links.

Got bangles, [candles | Kangos], and Cadillac handles.
Come back next week  [I seen sharp and tango | I’ll teach you all to tango].

No hassle, man. No haggle. Come on!
Ain’t nothin’ too shameful.
This is my corner, baby.
[Ain’t got no prospects | Ain’t no price painful]. [Never will change | They ain’t no exchange], though,
but I will take your dollars, pennies, pounds and pesos.

[Chorus]

[Repeat chorus]

I got bow ties, [blow flies], and [oh mys | oh-niners].
I got clothes driers, [???], and coat hangers.

I got needle-nose pliers, front row to the Globetrotters.
You buy some one-niners, I’ll throw in some yo’ mommas.

oh!

No credit, no credit — no problem.
You’ll be ridin’ and stylin’ in [a] Honda [ profilin’ | low rider],
[in] no time.

[???] baby [???] no tires, it’s just exposed wires for the ride so quiet.

Here.

No [wallies | whinings]! I told you on the phone, man, “You break it, you buy it.”
Come on! Make me an offer, baby. Buy me out.
All here on the corner right here, right now,
So what you need? What you need?

[Chorus]

[Talking]
Oh, yeah, you know I got your size.

Yeah. Wh- Extra small?

Ok, well, wh- wh- what we’ll do is just shrink down a large.
You know what I mean?
It’ll be all good. No problem.
How much you got you?
That’s enough.

I got girls gone wild, cab drivers gone wild,
the world gone wild, [??? | rabbis] gone wild,
President gone wild, but, hey,
then again, it’s just three months [on CNN | and all sinkin’ in].

It’s what ever y’all want carte blanch.
The Vice-president’s book.
[Hard man walks up a heartthrob | Called ‘Memoirs of a Heartthrob’].

[But] All you favorites.
[???] paperback.

Hell, no, you can’t take it back! You said beta max!

Come on, now, people! I gotta pay the rent!

Paper clips, shaving kits, Raisinettes, laser pens,
[Baconettes], cigarettes, [??? | place your bets from | I pay the rent in] [vinaigrette].
I got some cable knits made by kids from Bangladesh.

[Lettuce | letters], numbers, cumbers — shit — you can buy a [pound | vowel].
All on the corner right here, right now.

I take gold cards, Chase cards, green cards, the [race] cards,
and any legal tender with a white man in the center.

[Chorus]

That’s right, ya’ll.

Step up! Step up!

We got everything you need.

And on top of all that, I’m a nice guy.

[???] Ladies. Come on, Sue.

Wai- wai- wait! Where you going?

[??? across the street. They ain’t gonna buy it???]

    Here’s my two cents…

    I got headphones.
    I got tentpoles
    I got ten toes with ingrowns.
    I got fishbowls

    Come back next week I´ll teach you all to Tango.

    I got girls gone wild, cab drivers gone wild,
    the world gone wild, Rabbis gone wild,
    President gone wild, but, hey,
    then again, it’s just three months and all sinking in.

    Paper clips, shaving kits, Raisinettes, laser pens,
    [???], cigarettes, [???] place your bets from [vinaigrette].

    “[I] pay the rent in vinaigrette”? I wish the song were more popular so I could finally get the official lyrics.
