Lil' Kim:
Where's all my soul sisters
Let me hear y'all flow sisters

Hey sister, go sister, soul sister, flow sister
Hey sister, go sister, soul sister, go sister

Mya:
He met Marmalade down in old Moulin Rouge
Strutting her stuff on the street
She said, hello, hey Joe
You wanna give it a go, oh

Gitchi gitchi ya ya da da (hey hey hey)
Gitchi gitchi ya ya hee (hee oh)
Mocca chocolata ya ya (ooh yeah)
Creole Lady Marmalade (ohh)

Voulez-vous coucher avec moi, ce soir (oh oh)
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi (yeah yeah yeah yeah)

Pink:
He sat in her boudoir while she freshened up
Boy drank all that magnolia wine
On her black satin sheets

Gitchi gitchi ya ya da da (da da yeah)
Gitchi gitchi ya ya hee (ooh yeah yeah)
Mocca chocolata ya ya (yeah, yeah)

Lil' Kim:
Yeah, yeah, aw
We come through with the money and the garter belts
Let 'em know we 'bout that cake, straight out the gate
We independent women, some mistake us for whores
I'm saying, why spend mine when I can spend yours
Disagree, well that's you and I'm sorry
I'ma keep playing these cats out like Atari
Wear high heeled shoes, getting love from the dudes
Four bad ass chicks from the Moulin Rouge
Hey sisters, soul sisters
Betta' get that dough sisters
We drink wine with diamonds in the glass
By the case, the meaning of expensive taste
We wanna gitchi gitchi ya ya (come on)
Mocca chocolata (what)
Creole Lady Marmalade

One more time, come on now

Marmalade (ooh)
Lady Marmalade (ooh yeah)
Marmalade (ohh)

Christina:
Hey, hey, hey
Touch of her skin feeling silky smooth, oh
Color of cafe au lait, alright
Made the savage beast inside
Roar until he cried

More, more, more

Pink:
Now he's back home doing nine to five (nine to five)

Mya:
Living a gray flannel life

Christina:
But when he turns off to sleep, memories creep

More, more, more

Gitchi gitchi ya ya da da (da da)
Gitchi gitchi ya ya hee (ohh)
Mocca chocolata ya ya (ooh)
Creole Lady Marmalade

Voulez-vous coucher avec moi, ce soir (ce soir)
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi (all my sisters, yeah)
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi, ce soir (ce soir)
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi (ohh)

    General CommentUm, excuse me? First of all, lady marmalade=hooker therefor people who sing about lady marmalade shoulder look like they're hookers. Second, it is not childish to fight over this, but it's what people do on this website if you have'nt noticed, if you don't like, get your ass off the website, nobody likes a whiner. This website is also about finding the meaning of a song, not sating how shitty, crappy, and slutty the song is, learn how to think positive about a song, like, I think this song is actually beautifully sang, they're great singers.

    General CommentThis is one of the best feel good song around. It is particularly good when getting over that guy who dumped you. Just play this song, sing along to it and you feel so much better.

    General CommentI don't think this song is that bad, kinda catchy infact -lol- I'd have to say I have more respect for Christina then I do for any other pop artist. And they looked like hoes for a reason 'cause it's kinda the theme of the song and the movie Moulin rouge.
