"Lips Are Movin" as written by Kevin Kadish and Meghan Trainor....
If your lips are moving, if your lips are moving
If your lips are moving, then you're lyin', lyin', lyin', baby
If your lips are moving, if your lips are moving
If your lips are moving, then you're lyin', lyin', lyin', baby

Boy, look at me in my face
Tell me that you're not just about this bass
You really think I could be replaced
Nah, I come from outer space
And I'm a classy girl, I'mma hold it up
You're full of something but it ain't love
And what we got, straight overdue
Go find somebody new

You can buy me diamond earrings and deny-ny-ny, ny-ny-ny, deny-ny
But I smell her on your collar so goodbye-bye-bye, bye-bye-bye

I know you lie
'Cause your lips are moving
Tell me do you think I'm dumb?
I might be young, but I ain't stupid
Talking around in circles with your tongue
I gave you bass, you gave me sweet talk
Saying how I'm your number one
But I know you lie
'Cause your lips are moving
Baby don't you know I'm done

If your lips are moving, if your lips are moving
If your lips are moving, then you're lyin', lyin', lyin', baby
If your lips are moving, if your lips are moving
If your lips are moving, then you're lyin', lyin', lyin', baby

Hey baby don't you bring them tears
'Cause it's too late, too late baby
You only love me when you're here
You're so two-faced, two-faced babe

You can buy me diamond earrings and deny-ny-ny, ny-ny-ny, deny-ny
But I smell her on your collar so goodbye-bye-bye, bye-bye-bye

I know you lie
'Cause your lips are moving
Tell me do you think I'm dumb?
I might be young, but I ain't stupid
Talking around in circles with your tongue
I gave you bass, you gave me sweet talk
Saying how I'm your number one
But I know you lie
'Cause your lips are moving
Baby don't you know I'm done

Come on, say!

If your lips are moving, if your lips are moving
If your lips are moving, then you're lyin', lyin', lyin',
If your lips are moving, if your lips are moving
If your lips are moving, then you're lyin', lyin', lyin',

I know you lie
'Cause your lips are moving
Tell me do you think I'm dumb?
I might be young, but I ain't stupid
Talking around in circles with your tongue
I gave you bass, you gave me sweet talk
Saying how I'm your number one
But I know you lie
'Cause your lips are moving
Baby don't you know I'm done

    General CommentMeghan Trainor is back promoting narcissism and radical feminism.

    Narcissism is in the textual reference to her own song when she says "Tell me that you're not just about this base." It's funny, because she writes a song "All About That Base" indicating how it's great to love curvy women and not those "skinny bitches," but then she goes and says she doesn't like guys who only like that "bass"?

    She promotes radical feminism by proclaiming that guys are liars and cheaters. She says, "You can buy me diamond earrings and deny-ny-ny, ny-ny-ny, deny-ny
    But I smell her on your collar so goodbye-bye-bye, bye-bye-bye." She has the precedent that men are wrong from the beginning, no matter how good they may seem to treat a women. The fact that she thinks guys lie because "they're lips are moving" shows that she has no faith in men at all. Yet, she references "bass" all the time to flaunt her image, even though she only holds stereotypes against men.

    "You only love me when you're here
    You're so two-faced, two-faced babe."

    This line is blatantly ironic, because she talks about men wanting women only for their image as something wrong and bad, but her multiple hypocritical references to "bass" represents that her image does in fact matter, and she uses this to her advantage, even though she holds it against guys. Basically she's hypocritical because she is saying that an image shouldn't matter when it comes to love, but her references to "bass" contradict her lyrics, as in "I gave you bass, you gave me sweet talk."

    And I love this part:

    "Tell me do you think I'm dumb?
    I might be young, but I ain't stupid."

    "Ain't stupid" is a contraction in itself, because the word "ain't" is often classified within the lower social class, (i.e. less educated) yet she is using this less educated word to say she isn't stupid. Now I'm not saying whether she is stupid or not (I doubt she is, she is only another product of the music industry), but the point here is that she says she's not stupid while using very poor pragmatics.

    Overall, I feel this song is a narcissistic approach to promote radical feminism. Meghan is always doubting the guys with her lyrics and calling them liars, and she implies that women are always in the right position to do as they please, while men must respect them and do them justice to even be considerable. I love how she uses no valid reasons to prove that men are liars besides "their lips are moving." And what's ironic in that is that women are traditionally the talkers and gossipers, yet she lends that title to men without any real hard evidence besides that they talk. When men talk, they lie. That's basically what she is saying, along with the fact that her image shouldn't matter, even though she will reference and promote her own curves, pretty much defeating the purpose.
