"You Don't Have to be A Prostitute" was featured in the episode The New Cup and is performed by Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie.

SummaryEdit

Bret, after learning of Murray's newfound fortune, attempts to inform Jemaine that he no longer has to prostitute himself in order to make ends meet. In an A.V. Club interview, Jemaine described wanting to writing a judgmental version of The Police's song Roxanne, but "it makes a lot of assumptions about the profession. Singing a song about prostitution, like "I'll stop you from being a prostitute with this song".

LyricsEdit

Lyrics for You Don't Have to be A Prostitute from The New Cup

Oooohooooh Its a cold night, beneath the street light, there's a man whose pants are too tight / Oh no, his pants are too tight / My pants are too tight / He stands there, an empty stare, trying to make enough money for his cab fare home / He'll have to walk home tonight / Don't have enough for the ride / The streets are cruel, he tries to act cool, he goes to work with only his one tool / You can put away your tool, Jemaine

You don't have to be, a prostitute / No no no no no / You can say no, to being a man hoe / A male gigolo / You don't have to be, a prostitute / No no no no no / You can say no to being a night looker, boy hooker, rent boy, bro, hoe

He can't see his way out / I can not see my way out / He can't see his way out / Male prostitution seems to be my only option / He can't see his way out / I can not see my way out / He can't see his way out / No, no, no, no, no

He sends cheep thrills, to pay expensive bills / But check your résumé, you must have some other skills / Do you have any other skills? / Like typing?

They see him, want him to please them, want him to play them, but they don't even pay him / Oh no, they don't think he's worth it at all / Don't think I know when, he tries to bring them home, maybe that would be a way if he lived alone / Oh, you have a roommate Jemaine, don't bring them home

You don't have to be, a prostitute / No no no no no / You can say no, to being a man hoe / A male gigolo / You don't have to be, a prostitute / No no no no no / You can say no to being a night looker, boy hooker, rent boy, bro, hoe
