Commercialmente, Pretty Fly (For A White Guy) è la canzone di maggior successo degli Offspring. Rilasciata come singolo nel 1998, estratto dall’album Americana, ha raggiunto il primo posto delle classifiche inglesi ed australiane anche grazie alla popolarità radiofonica. Il testo vuole ridicolizzare un ragazzo bianco che cerca di atteggiarsi da “gangsta” e di ostentare la sua passione per l’hip-hop solo perchè questo fa tendenza, permettendogli magari di abbordare qualche bella ragazza.

The Offspring Pretty Fly For A White Guy Testo Lyrics

Montag, lieben, lachen, loben,

Give it to me baby,
Uh-huh uh-huh
Give it to me baby,
Uh-huh uh-huh
Give it to me baby
Uh-huh uh-huh
And all the girlies say I’m pretty fly for a white guy

Uno, dos, tres, cuatro, cinco, cinco, seis

You know it’s kind of hard
Just to get along today
Our subject isn’t cool
But he fakes it anyway
He may not have a clue
And he may not have style
But everything he lacks
Well he makes up in denial

So don’t debate, a player straight
You know he really doesn’t get it anyway
Gonna play the field, and keep it real
For you no way, for you no way
So if you don’t rate, just overcompensate
At least you’ll know you can always go on Ricki Lake
The world needs wannabees, so (hey, hey)
Do that brand new thing

Give it to me baby,
Uh-huh uh-huh
Give it to me baby,
Uh-huh uh-huh
Give it to me baby
Uh-huh uh-huh
And all the girlies say I’m pretty fly for a white guy

He needs some cool tunes
Not just any will suffice
But they didn’t have Ice Cube
So he bought Vanilla Ice
Now cruising in his Pinto,
He sees homies as he pass
But if he looks twice
They’re gonna kick his lily ass

So don’t debate, a player straight
you know he really doesn’t get it anyway
gonna play the field, and keep it real
But for you no way, for you no way
So if you don’t rate, just overcompensate
At least you’ll know you can always go on Ricki Lake
The world loves wannabees, so (hey, hey)
Do that brand new thing

Now he’s getting a tattoo, yeah
He’s gettin’ ink done
He asked for a “13” but they drew a “31”
Friends say he’s trying too hard
And he’s not quite hip
But in his own mind
He’s the, he’s the dopest trip

Give it to me baby,
Uh-huh uh-huh
Give it to me baby,
Uh-huh uh-huh
Give it to me baby
Uh-huh uh-huh

Uno, dos, tres, cuatro, cinco, cinco, seis

So don’t debate, a player straight
you know he really doesn’t get it anyway
gonna play the field, and keep it real
For you no way, for you no way
So if you don’t rate, just overcompensate
At least you’ll know you can always go on Ricki Lake
The world needs wannabes
The world loves wannabes
Let’s get some more wannabes (hey, hey)
Do that brand new thing

[The Offspring]
