Stomp stomp I've arrived
Drop the beat, nasty face
Why ya lookin' at me?

Flyin' flyin' flyin' flyin' through the sky
In my spaceship
I'm an alien tonight

Dirty dirty dirty dirty dirty dirty sucka
You think I can't get hurt like you, you motherfucker
I can do it like a brother
Do it like a dude
Grab my crotch, wear my hat low like you

Do it like a brother
Do it like a dude
Grab my crotch, wear my hat low like you

We can do it like the man'dem, man'dem
We can do it like the man'dem,
Sugar sugar sugar
We can do it like the man'dem, man'dem
We can do it like the man'dem,
Sugar sugar sugar

Boom Boom, pour me a beer
No pretty drinks, I'm a guy out here
Rollin' rollin' rollin' rollin' money like a pimp
My B-I-T-C-H's on my dick like this

Dirty dirty dirty dirty dirty dirty sucka
You think I can't get hurt like you, you motherfucker
I can do it like a brother
Do it like a dude
Grab my crotch, wear my hat low like you

Do it like a brother
Do it like a dude
Grab my crotch, wear my hat low like you

We can do it like the man'dem, man'dem
We can do it like the man'dem,
Sugar sugar sugar
We can do it like the man'dem, man'dem
We can do it like the man'dem,
Sugar sugar sugar

Boys, come say what you wanna
Boys, you need to lick my dollar
Boys, gettin' hot under the collar
Holla holla whoa

Boys, come say what you wanna
Boys, you need to lick my dollar
Boys, gettin' hot under the collar
Holla holla whoa

I can do it like a brother
Do it like a dude
Grab my crotch, wear my hat low like you

Do it like a brother
Do it like a dude
Grab my crotch, wear my hat low like you

We can do it like a brother
Do it like a dude
Grab my crotch, wear my hat low like you

Do it like a brother
Do it like a dude
Grab my crotch, wear my hat low like you

We can do it like the man'dem, man'dem
We can do it like the man'dem
Sugar sugar sugar
We can do it like the man'dem, man'dem
We can do it like the man'dem
Sugar sugar sugar

Do it, do it like a dude
Do it, do it low like you
Do it, do it like a dude
Do it, do it like a dude

    General CommentI actually think there is a deeper meaning that the lyrics let off. I think it is how everyone expects you because you are girl to be get hurt by things someone guy can do when it comes to things and Jessie is saying like I can do things and not get hurt (like heartbroken or something). I'm can be just as tough as you are. It kind of reminds me of sorta like a "girl power" song in the case of I can do things just like a guy and not be a girl about things.

    General CommentI agree with Elzbieta. I think this song is basically saying "Don't treat me differently because I'm a girl. I can do things just like you." Prejudice against women is still effective in society even though more opportunities are opening up for women :) I love this song. It's beyond catchy :D

    My InterpretationThe song is definitely about women being equal to men. By showing that women can be 'like a dude' she saying they are just as capable of that level of toughness and masculinity despite being female and that women don't have to be vulnerable just because their women.

    General CommentSeeing as how she is openly bisexual, I will first of all say that I think the lyrics are wrong.

    Where it says "You think I can't get hurt like you, you motherfucker", I mean really, that doesn't make any sense at all.
    Like Princesszelda said, she doesn't get it.
    However, if you replace the word hurt with her, you get:

    "Dirty dirty dirty dirty dirty dirty sucka
    You think I can't get her like you, you motherfucker
    I can do it like a brother
    Do it like a dude
    Grab my crotch, wear my hat low like you"

    Which makes a whole lot more sense to me, at least if you take it into count that she is bisexual.
    Also in the vid (in the link that cassinova008 posted) when she explains the song she is talking about men's ego.

    So to me this song is about getting out the message like "hello, just because you're a guy and you have a big fat ego and a d*ck, doesn't mean you can get more girls than me, 'cause I sure as hell can do that too." like a dude. Lol.
    That's the first thing I thought when I heard this song, and also like she says in the vid it's pretty much about bringing some justice to girls in general.
    I think she does that really well.

    Song Meaningon german radio she told that this song is her way of saying "f*ck you" especially to the music company because they didn't recognize her talent at first.
