some version of this song has the verse 'You got a new skank', some other one has 'Got new skank'.
Which is the correct text?
Thanks a lot!

I believe "got new skank" is correct. That's what I can hear.

Bit of info on the lyrics here:



Elsewhere, Hynde’s mention of ‘Detroit leaning’ references a style of driving where folks lean way back in the front seat and stick their elbow out of the window; her ‘Got new skank/It’s so reet’ is a little tip of the hat to famed US artist and satirist Robert Crumb.

Grazie! As soon as possible I will update my translation.
