10 Dollar
M.I.A. Lyrics


China Girl is a little girl
From a town
That's all ya need to know

Lolita was a man-eater
Clocked him like a taxi meter

Fuck gold, she was platinum digger
Shakin'-ass-making moves on a mover
Visa, then a plane ride to ya
Peace out, she'll kill you like Uma

She skipped away to the shop
She found she didn't have enough
She clocked him looking right at her
And sucked on a lollipop

China Girl grew up to be a big girl
Had her sights set on a bigger world

Dial-a-Bride from Sri lanka
Found herself a Yorkshire banker

Need a Visa?
Got with a geezer
Need some money?
Paid him with a knees-up
Year later, started to ease-up
Got her own way, shouted out "see ya"

She skipped away to the shop
She found she didn't have enough
She clocked him looking right at her
And sucked on a lollipop

What can I get fo' 10 dollar?
Everything you want
And what can I get fo' 10 dollar?
Anything you want
Yeah what can I get fo' 10 dollar?

It's about both.

Messages about child prostitution on a dance song. M.I.A. is on another level. Period.

Wednesday Addams

Some people interpreted it to be about child prostitution. I thought it was about women looking for sugar daddies abroad to escape their current situation in third world countries.

Why not both?

It's a riff off the scene from the movie Full Metal Jack - Soldier - What do I get for $10? Girl - Anything you want. That was the same movie that brought - me so horny into the pop lexicon.
