"Hollaback Girl" as written by Pharrell L Williams and Gwen Stefani....
Ooh this my shit
All the girls stamp your feet like this

Few times I've been around that track
So it's not just gonna happen like that
'Cause I ain't no hollaback girl
I ain't no hollaback girl

Few times I've been around that track
So it's not just gonna happen like that
'Cause I ain't no hollaback girl
I ain't no hollaback girl

This my shit, this my shit
This my shit, this my shit
This my shit, this my shit
This my shit, this my shit

I heard that you were talking shit
And you didn't think that I would hear it
People hear you talking like that, getting everybody fired up
So I'm ready to attack, gonna lead the pack
Gonna get a touchdown, gonna take you out
That's right, put your pom-poms down, getting everybody fired up

Few times I've been around that track
So it's not just gonna happen like that
'Cause I ain't no hollaback girl
I ain't no hollaback girl

Few times I've been around that track
So it's not just gonna happen like that
'Cause I ain't no hollaback girl
I ain't no hollaback girl

This my shit, this my shit
This my shit, this my shit
This my shit, this my shit
This my shit, this my shit

So that's right dude, meet me at the bleachers
No principals, no student-teachers
Both of us wanna be the winner, but there can only be one
So I'm gonna fight, gonna give it my all
Gonna make you fall, gonna sock it to ya
That's right, I'm the last one standing, and another one bites the dust

Few times I've been around that track
So it's not just gonna happen like that
'Cause I ain't no hollaback girl
I ain't no hollaback girl

Few times I've been around that track
So it's not just gonna happen like that
'Cause I ain't no hollaback girl
I ain't no hollaback girl

This my shit, this my shit
This my shit, this my shit
This my shit, this my shit
This my shit, this my shit

Let me hear you say, this shit is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S!
This shit is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S!
Again this shit is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S!
This shit is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S!

Few times I've been around that track
So it's not just gonna happen like that
'Cause I ain't no hollaback girl
I ain't no hollaback girl

Few times I've been around that track
So it's not just gonna happen like that
'Cause I ain't no hollaback girl
I ain't no hollaback girl

This my shit, this my shit
This my shit, this my shit
This my shit, this my shit
This my shit, this my shit

    why don't you all grow up and look past the TRL bullshit. Its infiltrating your minds and turning you black. You don't like this song and you know it, it's fucked up. she's getting hundreds of thousands of dollars for singing about bananas, while there are literally hundreds of very talented bands out there that can actually write good lyrics, sing and play their instruments. its just for the money, cant you all see that.

    General CommentThis song marks Gwen's triumpant liberation from any pretense of artistic integrity. Probably the purest of her recent adventures in safe, thoughtless, inane pseudo hip-hop.

    General Commenti like it. She says shit alot tho, its weird cuz she doesnt say it too much otehr times... but fuck it, i like the beat and its originality. Chorus is pretty awsome.

    General CommentI think the song is about not letting people get in your way.

    "So I'm ready to attack, gonna lead the pack
    Gonna get a touchdown, gonna take you out "

    "So I'm gonna fight, gonna give it my all
    Gonna make you fall, gonna sock it to you
    That's right, I'm the last one standing, another one bites the dust "

    I think its also about people that spread rumours (shit).

    General Commentgwen stefani in a blue dress, barefoot, wearing a bindi singing "don't speak".

    WHERE DID SHE GO?!??!

    i don't really like this song, but i do find it kinda catchy. the beat's good. i also like the marching band in the video. anyone who uses a marching band gets props from me.

    but otherwise... the lyrics are... just... flat. she just seems to be playing out an image for the kind of crowd she wants to attract... the kind of crowd that lives by TRL... she's not being herself...she's being what she thinks everyone wants her to be...or...something like that...i dunno...

    i love gwen...i just don't know what the heck she's doing...go back to no doubt! they need you! you need them!
