"Who Do You Think You Are" as written by Paul David Wilson, Andy John Watkins and Spice,....
The race is on to get out of the bottom
The top is high so your roots are forgotten
Giving is good as long as you're getting
What's driving you it's ambition and betting

I said who do you think you are
Oh, oh (do you think you are, I said)
Ooh some kind of superstar (oh, oh, oh)
You have got to swing it, shake it, move it, make it
Who do you think you are
Trust it, use it, prove it, groove it
Show me how good you are
Swing it, shake it, move it, make it
Who do you think you are
Trust it, use it, prove it, groove it
Show how good you are

You're swelling out in the wrong direction
You've got the bug, superstar you've been bitten
Your trumpet's blowing for far too long
Climbing the snake of the ladder, but you're wrong

I said who do you think you are (oh, oh)
(Do you think you are, I said)
(Oh) some kind of superstar (oh, oh, oh)
You have got to swing it, shake it, move it, make it
Who do you think you are
Trust it, use it, prove it, groove it
Show me how good you are
Swing it, shake it, move it, make it
Who do you think you are
Trust it, use it, prove it, groove it
Show how good you are
You have got to reach on up, never lose your soul
You have got to reach on up, never lose control

I said who do you think you are (oh, oh)
(Do you think you are, I said)
(Oh) some kind of superstar (oh, oh, oh)
You have got to swing it, shake it, move it, make it
Who do you think you are?
Trust it, use it, prove it, groove it
Show me how good you are
Swing it, shake it, move it, make it
Who do you think you are
Trust it, use it, prove it, groove it
Show me how good you are
Swing it, shake it, move it, make it
Who do you think you are?
Trust it, use it, prove it, groove it
Show me how good you are
Swing it, shake it, move it, make it
Who do you think you are
Trust it, use it, prove it, groove it
Show me how good you are
Swing it, shake it, move it, make it
Who do you think you are
Trust it, use it, prove it, groove it
Show me how good you are
Swing it, shake it, move it, make it
Who do you think you are
Trust it, use it, prove it, groove it
Show me how good you are

    General CommentI think this song is talking about an arrogant person, who the singer is attempting to put in him/her place by telling him/her that he/she has to work to get to the top and not just expect it.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure this song is about achieving fame. There are so many fame-hungry people who will do ANYTHING to be famous, and the song is about not betraying yourself to get there, ie lyrics like "You have got to reach on up, never lose your soul,
    You have got to reach on up, never lose control" and especially "The top is high so your roots are forgotten". I think maybe people were being hard on the Spice Girls at the time for being a manufactured band, and they wanted to tell everyone that the reason they were so successful was because they worked hard, whether they were manufactured or not, and the bands that didn't make it failed because they didn't work as hard and because they did things that would only make them infamous at best. I love this song- it has a great beat and message!
