"What Are You Waiting For?(Video Version)" as written by and Gwen Stefani Linda Perry....
What an amazing time
What a family
How did the years go by?
Now it's only me

Tick tock

Like a cat in heat stuck in a moving car
Scary conversations
Shut my eyes, can't find the brake
What if they say that you're a cloner?

Naturally I'm worried if I do it alone
Who really cares 'cause it's your life
You never know, it could be great
Take a chance 'cause you might grow
Oh oh oh

What you waiting
What you waiting for?

What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting for?

Tick tock
Take a chance, you stupid ho

Like a new cut pattern, you're repeating yourself
You know it all by heart
Why are you standing in one place?
Born to blossom, bloom to perish

You know you're only known
'Cause of your sex chromosome
I know it's so messed up how our society all thinks (for sure)
Life is short, you're capable (uh huh)
Oh oh oh

Look at your watch now
You're still a super hot female!
You got your million dollar contract
And they're all waiting for your hot track

What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting for?

What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting for?

I can't wait to go
Back into Japan
Get me lots of brand new fans
Osaka, Tokyo
You Harajuku girls
Damn, you've got some wicked style

Go!
Look at your watch now
You're still a super hot female
You got your million dollar contract
And they're all waiting for your hot track

What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting for?

What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting for?

What you waiting for?
What you waiting for?
Take a chance, you stupid ho

Take a chance, you stupid ho
What you waiting for?
What you waiting for?
Take a chance, you stupid ho

    General Commenti think this has gotta do with opportunities and if you don't take them then what are you gonna do, it's kinda offensive with Take a chance you stupid ho but i mean you gotta get the point across somehow

    General CommentI think the ho part was her telling herself to take a chance. It's like when you insult yourself into doing something you're afraid of. Like during exams when you whisper "you're dumb...you totally know the answer" to yourself.

    General Commentthis song is her being schitzophrenic. she's talking to herself and telling herself to take a chance with her solo album. this song was written when she was trying to get inspired for the new album.

    General Commentyup with everyone here. about how she has to do it alone and has to take the chance,(as well as she has to do what pleases her and not only what No Doubt says as a band) and at the same time speaking about how in hollywood you never know when your time is up (especially for woman) "Your moment has run out Cause of your sex chromosome " and then "look at your watch now, you're still a super hot female" reassures her of the fact that she may not have much time but if she hurries up she's still hot so she can at least do the solo project
