Oh, shit (oh, shit, oh, shit)
Oh, shit (oh, shit, oh, shit)
Oh, shit (oh, shit, oh, shit)
Are you ready for this?
Oh, shit, oh, shit, oh, shit
Oh
It's me
Fergie
The P
Polow
Fergie ferg, what's up, baby?

When I come to the club, step aside (oh, shit)
Pop the seats, don't be hating me in the line (oh, shit)
VIP 'cause you know I gotta shine (oh, shit)
I'm Fergie Ferg, and me love you long time (oh, shit)

All my girls get down on the floor (oh, shit)
Back to back, drop it down real low (oh, shit)
I'm such a lady, but I'm dancing like a ho (oh, shit)
'Cause you know I don't give a fuck, so here we go (oh, shit)

How come every time you come around
My London, London bridge wanna go down?
Like London, London, London
Wanna go down like
London, London, London
Be going down like...

How come every time you come around
My London, London bridge wanna go down?
Like London, London, London
Wanna go down like
London, London, London
Be going down like...

The drinks start pouring
And my speech starts slurring
Everybody start looking real good

The gray goose got your girl feeling loose
Now I'm wishing that I didn't wear these shoes (I hate heels)
It like every time I get up on the dude
Paparazzi put my business in the news
Better get up out my face (oh, shit)
Before I turn around and spray your ass with mace (oh, shit)
My lips make you wanna have a taste (oh, shit)
You got that?
I've got the bass

How come every time you come around
My London, London bridge wanna go down?
Like London, London, London
Wanna go down like
London, London, London
Be going down like...

How come every time you come around
My London, London bridge wanna go down?
Like London, London, London
Wanna go down like
London, London, London
Be going down like...

Hey London, ATL, Cali collabo, Fergie and Polo

When I come to the club, step aside (oh, shit)
Pop the seats, don't be hating me in the line (oh, shit)
VIP 'cause you know I've gotta shine (oh, shit)
I'm Fergie Ferg, and me love you long time (oh, shit)

All my girls get down on the floor (oh, shit)
Back to back, drop it down real low (oh, shit)
I'm such a lady, but I'm dancing like a ho (oh, shit)
'Cause you know I don't give a fuck, so here we go (oh, shit)

How come every time you come around
My London, London bridge wanna go down?
Like London, London, London
Wanna go down like
London, London, London
Be going down like...

How come every time you come around
My London, London bridge wanna go down?
Like London, London, London
Wanna go down like
London, London, London
Be going down like...

(Fuck you, bitches!)

    General CommentThe beat is catchy and you can't help but nod your head.

    That being said, the lyrics are asanine and sound like someone wrote them five minutes before they recorded the song. I highly doubt Fergie wrote either the beat or the lyrics so you can't credit her for the beat or diss her for the lyrics.

    As far as the premise of the song? Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's about Fergie wanting to fuck whatever guy she's talking about.

    Another hip-hop pop song that will be on Top 40 radio for about 2-3 weeks then dissapear forever.

    General CommentThe first verse is obviously about using her fame to get benefits those who are not as well-off or good-looking can have, and exploiting it to teenage girls to make records. Then of course the "me love you long time" is a beautiful reference to the vietnam war in which we blew up the villages of many innocent families, and many of the girls were left to whore themselves out for money, and since their english was so bad, they said it like that.

    Second verse is about dancing around and acting like a whore, but not admitting to it. However, she uses the shorter term "ho" for whore. This is incorrect. Hos get paid, she means sluts. They give it up for free.

    The third verse is about getting really drunk and feeling kinda slutty, then wandering about without her shoes on.
    Fourth, she gets upset because the papparazzi is trying to take a picture of her while she's puking her brains out. I'm assuming this is the source of "the bass" which she claims to have.

    Well, since at no time was London Bridge a drawbridge, I grew confused at first. Then I realized that somewhere in the meth-bender Fergie had in the late 90's she studied the history of London quite feverishly, being that she couldn't sleep. She knew that it was the only bridge across the River Thames, and as such, the only way into London. On occasion, the bridge was destroyed to prevent enemy troops from crossing into their city. In a brilliant metaphor, she is likening this to her situation with the paparazzi, with whom she wishes to "burn her bridges". However, I'm still not clear on if she meant from the the Normans or the Danes. Clearly she includes her dancing friends to protect them from the paparazzi/ danish/ gaul invasion. What an amazing songwriter!!!

    General CommentThere is a good chance there are errors in these lyrics. I transcribed to the best of my ability, but missed out on some of the shouted stuff in the background and some of the softer stuff she says between choruses. If there are any changes, just leave a comment here and I'll be sure to edit as they're receieved.

    General CommentThis song is great. It's the next hollaback girl for sure. Yeah, I think there are some errors in this song. After she says ahh la da da da, she says some jibberish between that that I didn't really catch.

    General CommentThis song is WAY too catchy. Other than that there isn't anything good about it.

    General Commentyour wrong. I think fergie did write this song if you read the lyrics closely. It's her style. I dont think someone could have wrote this for her. She's been in the music biz for quite a while and she's 31.

    General CommentI disagree, anyone who sings hip-hop or pop CAN'T actually sing, and btw they really don't write their own songs. That's just rubbish.
