I am sexy and I know it

We hit it to the bar, baby don ´t be nervous
No shoes, no shirt, and I still get service

Hello,

I ´m not native but I think the first expression means "faço por isso" and the second one "vamos em direção ao bar" but I ´m not sure about the first one because it can be an idiomatic expression or slang.

Hi!

I ´m pretty sure he sings ´I pimp to the beat, ´ which if so, he is trying to say he is cool, he ´s got rhythm.

And ´hit the bar, ´ is to go to the bar... but again, I ´m not sure if he says ´head to the bar, ´ which is to go towards the bar.

Tash :D

I pimp to the beat, walking on the street in my new lafreak, yeah...
This is how I roll, come on ladies it ´s time to go
We headed to the bar, baby don ´t be nervous
No shoes, no shirt, and I still get serviced (watch)
 
 
"To get serviced" is totally different from the "to get service" that you have. It means to get sex. It is an old term used by farmers and ranchers for having their animals inseminated. It always reminds me of a line in the movie The Grapes of Wrath (and probably from the book, too, but it ´s been many years since I read it). John Carradine ´s character says that when he was a boy, his father took him along when he took their cow to get serviced. The boy didn ´t know what the expression meant until he saw what was happening. He says that now, whenever he sees the word "service" on a sign, he knows somebody is getting screwed (cheated).
