* Can't hold us down *
Feat. 'LiL Kim


Say, what am I not supposed to have an opinion.
Should I be quiet just because I'm a woman.
Call me a bitch (bitch) because I speak what's on my mind.
Guess it's easier for you to swallow if I sat and smiled.
When a female fires back, suddenly the big talkerdon't know how to act.
So he does what any little boy (little boy) would do.
Making up a few false romours (false romours) or two.
That for sure is not a man to me,
Slanderin' names for popularity
It's sad you only get your name through controversy (so sad).
But now it's time for me to come and give you more to say.
This is for my girls all around the world (around the world)
Who will come across a man that don't respect your worth.
Thinking all women should be seen not heard,
So what do we do girls?
SHOUT LOUDER!
Lettin' 'em know we're gonna stand our ground (stand our ground).
Lift your hands high and wave 'em proud.
Take a deep breath and stay a while.
Never can, never will
CAN'T HOLD US DOWN!
Nobody can hold us down (hold us down)
Nobody can hold us down (hold us down)
Nobody can hold us down (hold us down)
Never can, never will
So- What am I not supposed to say what I'm saying
Are you offended with the message I'm bringin'
Call me whatever 'cause your words don't mean a thing
Guess you ain't even a man enough to handle what I sing
If you look back in history it's a common double standard of society
The guy get's all the glory the more he can score
While a girl can do the same and yet you call her a whore
I don't understand why it's OK,
The guy can get away with it the girl gets named
All my ladies come together and make a change
And start a new beginning for us, everybody sing
Chorus [interlaced with hey, ho's]:
This is for my girls all around the world
Who will come across a man that don't respect your worth (respect your worth).
Thinking all women should be seen not heard,
So what do we do girls?
SHOUT LOUDER!
Lettin' 'em know we're gonna stand our ground.
Lift your hands high and wave 'em proud.
Take a deep breath and stay a while.
Never can, never will
CAN'T HOLD US DOWN!
You're just a little boy
Think you're so cute, so coy
You must talk so big, to make up for smaller things
You're just a little boy
All you do is annoy
You must talk so big to make up for smaller things.
This is for my girls all around the world (around the world)
Who will come across a man that don't respect your worth.
Thinking all women should be seen not heard,
So what do we do girls?
SHOUT LOUDER!
Lettin' 'em know we're gonna stand our ground (stand our ground).
Lift your hands high and wave 'em proud.
Take a deep breath and stay a while.
Never can, never will
CAN'T HOLD US DOWN!
This is for my girls all around the world (around the world)
Who will come across a man that don't respect your worth.
Thinking all women should be seen not heard,
So what do we do girls?
SHOUT LOUDER!
Lettin' 'em know we're gonna stand our ground (stand our ground).
Lift your hands high and wave 'em proud.
Take a deep breath and stay a while.
Never can, never will
CAN'T HOLD US DOWN!
