"Stand Down" as written by Darren Lewis, Iyiola Babalola, Jade Amelia Thirlwall, Jesy Nelson, Perrie Louise Edwards, Leigh Anne Pinnock and Shaznay Lewis....
Let me start it by telling you something
I think there's one thing you should know
We ain't playin' no games, this ain't no playground
It's time to drop your sticks and stones

'Cause I've been chasing dreams since I took my first leap
And I'm gon' be lil' Bo so contemplate if you're the sheep
And we gon' make a humble pie so egos cut a slice and take a piece, hey

So, you see, there's no point in underestimating me, to me
Lock up all your thoughts and throw away the key
No, I don't want to hear it 'cause you're, no, it doesn't bother me

Now I'm done with all your negativity
And I'm gonna let it wash all over me
I'll be stronger than your words, baby, I'm harder
My smile lights up the world, I'm flyin' higher
So stand down (don't wanna hear it)
Back it up now (don't wanna hear it)
Stand down (don't wanna hear it)
Back it up, back it up-up now
Stand down (don't wanna hear it)
Back it up now (don't wanna hear it)
Stand down (don't wanna hear it)
Back it up, back it up-up now

Come a little bit closer
Let me tell you about a girl you used to know
She ain't waiting for luck, no wishful thinking,
She's gonna do it on her own

So, you see, there's no point in underestimating me, to me
Lock up all your thoughts and throw away the key
No, I don't want to hear it 'cause your, no, it doesn't bother me

Now I'm done with all your negativity
And I'm gonna let it wash all over me
I'll be stronger than your words, baby, I'm harder
My smile lights up the world, I'm flyin' higher
So stand down (don't wanna hear it)
Back it up now (don't wanna hear it)
Stand down (don't wanna hear it)
Back it up, back it up-up now
Stand down (don't wanna hear it)
Back it up now (don't wanna hear it)
Stand down (don't wanna hear it)
Back it up, back it up-up now

L-ladies, let's break it down

Scuba-da, boba-da, boba-da ba
Scuba-da, baduba-ba, baduba-ba ba
Scuba-da, beeb do da bo dap
Scuba-da, baduba-ba, baduba-ba, baduba-ba, baduba-ba
Baduba-ba-ba-bo bada, now click

I'm just gonna do me
I'm a do this right (right)
You got nothin' on me
You're just wastin' your time (time)
Take a listen to me
'Cause I'm a tell you tonight
Oh, woah, woah

Now I'm done with all your negativity
And I'm gonna let it wash all over me
I'll be stronger than your words, baby, I'm harder
My smile lights up the world, I'm flyin' higher
So stand down (don't wanna hear it)
Back it up now (don't wanna hear it)
Stand down (don't wanna hear it)
Back it up, back it up-up now
Stand down (don't wanna hear it)
Back it up now (don't wanna hear it)
Stand down (Don't wanna hear it)
Back it up, back it up-up now
