update on "making money"

I have a first verse (two actually), a lift and the chorus. I'm not happy with the meter of the verse(s), though. But I don't mind rewriting my stuff until I am happy or a partner who is willing to set them to music is.

I saw her on the corner of the main street
she stood right under the streetlight
wearing high heel boots and a flimsy skirt
because she wanted her bare legs to be seen

she waited for drivers to slow their speed,
size her up, maybe make up their mind,
gape at her tight, low cut faux leather shirt
getting ready to pay for this street corner queen

I asked
what are you doing deep in the night
posing half-nude here in the light
she said
what do you think? You've got one guess.
If you're willing to pay then be my guest.

You see,
I'm making money,
making some money
the only way I know
making money,
making some money
the only way I know

Since I need two stanzas to describe the scene or tell the story I now tend to use only two parts instead of three as I suggested yesterday. Also, I'm nor sure if I will write a bridge. Possibly, I just repeat the chorus at the end.
