Facebook == Ego Tripping Out

"Ego Tripping Out" is a 1979 funk-styled dance record released by American soul singerMarvin Gaye, released as a single on the Tamla (Motown) label.

The song, written, composed, arranged and produced by Gaye himself, was a self-mockery of the singer's image and lifestyle. Providing a semi-rap at the beginning of the song where he sung "I got the baddest cool/could never be the fool/the ladies wait to get down with me", he later talks about the downside of being in the spotlight as he sung about his crippling drug abuse: "cause the toot and the smoke won't fulfill the need".


i got the baddest cool, could never be the fool, the ladies wait to get down with me

the love i make superb, to doubt me is absurd, the ladies say i'm the greatest you see
