About "Flip The Coin" & Lyrics

Despite what people might think, when I wrote these lyrics, I wasn't addressing any certain guy.  The song is an ode to the daring of independent women. Flip The Coin is my way of relating to other women of confidence and experience. They choose to go against the social norm of waiting around for men to take the lead in the gamble of love. Experience has given them the upper hand and they choose to claim their winnings on their own terms...in the sweetest way possible, of course. ;)


Hey! It's Malaya!
I need a little change.
'Cause I'm about to flip it.

You're lookin' mighty fine
What's your number can I call you up
I'm not like the other girls
I know exactly what I want

Like a deer in my headlights
Fight or flight, baby, don't be stunned.
And lookin' like it's the Cali state
Lottery that you won

Don't be scared baby
I'll show you how it's done
Put your hands in mine
I'll show you real fun
You're like a stop sign
Can't pass you up
Let me flip this coin
Heads you lose
Tails I win this one

I'm 'bout to flip, flip, flip this coin on you
I'm 'bout to flip, flip, flip this coin on you
I'm 'bout to flip, flip, flip this coin on you
I'm 'bout to flip, flip, flip this coin on you

Fly straight, low key & quiet
You're the kind of man that'll last
I've seen it all baby
Done the chicas, champagne & flash

It's time to get down to it
What you got, I'll better than match
You better step it up, boy
If you're not game, then I'll pass



Can't pass you up
You know I called it
You won me over
It must be luck

It's much too much
Too late for you
Cashin' it in
Nothin' that you can do
Nothin' that you can do

Nothin' you can do!


Heads you lose
Tails I won
Too bad for you
I won't flip another one
