"I Don't Need A Man" as written by Nicole Prascovia Scherzinger, Rich Harrison, Kara Dioguardi and Vanessa Brown....
I see you looking at me
Like I got something that's for you
And the way that you stare
Don't you dare
'Cause I'm not about to
Just give it all up to you
'Cause there are some things I won't do
And I'm not afraid to tell you
I don't ever want to leave you confused

The more you try
The less I bite
And I don't have to think it through
You know if I'm into you

I don't need a man to make it happen
I get off being free
I don't need a man to make me feel good
I get off doing my thing
I don't need a ring around my finger
To make me feel complete
So let me break it down
I can get off when you ain't around
Oh!

You know I got my own life
And I bought everything that's in it
So if you want to be with me
It ain't all about the bling you bringing
I want a love that's for real
And without that, no deal
And, baby, I don't need a hand
If it only wants to grab one thing

The more you try
The less I bite
And I don't have to think it through
You know if I'm feeling you

I don't need a man to make it happen
I get off being free
I don't need a man to make me feel good
I get off doing my thing
I don't need a ring around my finger
To make me feel complete
So let me break it down
I can get off when you ain't around
Oh!

Let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go
Let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go
Let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go
Let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go

I don't need a
I don't need a man, I don't
I don't need a man
I'll get me through
'Cause I know I'm fine
I feel brand new

I don't need a
I don't need a man, I don't
I don't need a man
I'll make it through
'Cause I know I'm fine
Without you!

I don't need a man to make it happen
I get off being free
I don't need a man to make me feel good
I get off doing my thing
I don't need a ring around my finger
To make me feel complete
So let me break it down
I can get off when you ain't around
Oh!

I don't need a man (I'm over you)
I don't need a man (I'm over you)
I don't need a man
(I'm without you)
(I'm over you)

I don't need a man
I don't need a man
I don't need a man

Oh!

    General CommentGrow up, you two.

    They're not singing about men in general, they're singing about the annoying ones who thinks that they are God's gift and that a woman simply cannot function without them.

    So it's not a direct hit at the general male population, it's a bit of a Phark You to the cretins.

    General Commentlol...Yeah...

    Well we all know that they need a man, but its pathetic that thay are actually singing about it, and yep you're right without a guy who will devote all he attention onto them atc, they would crumple to the ground...but what guy would be stupid enough to go out with them?

    General CommentThis is probably a kick up the butt to all their critics saying they are all about sex and saying they are whores. Its basically saying that they understand what relationships are about and they don't need them to survive.

    Men all seem to think women are constantly out there looking for mr right... well you are very mistaken. We can be independent and self-satisfying.

    And we'll know when we eventually need a companion! k!

    General Commentwow i never thought a person or people in general could be so fucking stupid. They are contridcting themselves. In other songs they talk about wanting men to have sex with them and this one they say the dont need them.

    Very sad how music is these days
