"Back Up" as written by Delisha Thomas, Antea Birchett, Anesha Birchett, Rodney Jerkins, Beyonce Gisselle Knowles, Frederick Daniel Iii Jerkins and Lashawn Ameen Daniels....
When you see that girl comin', back up
She ain't yo' average chick, back up
This is for the, the, the club
And this is for the people on the, the, the block
When you see that girl comin', back up
She ain't yo' average chick, back up
This is for the, the, the club
And this is for the people on the, the, the block

She ain't the average chick, she the baddest chick
She ain't the average chick, she the baddest chick

E-e-everybody know that face
Even with her head low, they still know that shape
When she come through the club, people take they place
Chicks throwin' handcuffs 'cause they knowin' they man ain't safe

'Cause she the one switchin' up flows (flows)
If it's four door, two gotta go (go)
Chicks like, what kinda jeans is those? (those)
And fellas watchin' like, please, get low (please, get low)

When you see that girl comin', back up
She ain't yo' average chick, back up
This is for the, the, the club
And this is for the people on the, the, the block
When you see that girl comin', back up
She ain't yo' average chick, back up
This is for the, the, the club
And this is for the people on the, the, the block

She ain't the average chick, she the baddest chick
She ain't the average chick, she the baddest chick

E-e-everybody can't do this
Some ain't gotta clue till they hear me spit
Achoo, I spew 'cause yo' girl is sick
Is it the change or the hips--you can't tell, but you know it's thick

'Cause she the one switchin' up flows (flows)
If it's four door, two gotta go (go)
Chicks like, what kinda jeans is those? (those)
And fellas watchin' like, please, get low

When you see that girl comin', back up
She ain't yo' average chick, back up
This is for the, the, the club
And this is for the people on the, the, the block
When you see that girl comin', back up
She ain't yo' average chick, back up
This is for the, the, the club
And this is for the people on the, the, the block

She ain't the average chick, she the baddest chick
She ain't the average chick, she the baddest chick

For this type of girl it's not that hard
You see her 'cause she too far gone
Though they pray and pray for her downfall
(They pray and pray for her downfall)
Why they gotta be so envious?
Doin' what it do fit to be a plus

Hey (hey), hey (hey), hey (hey), hey (hey)
Hey (hey), hey (hey), hey (hey)

Back up, back up
Back up

When you see that girl comin', back up
She ain't yo' average chick, back up
This is for the, the, the club
And this is for the people on the, the, the block
When you see that girl comin', back up
She ain't yo' average chick, back up
This is for the, the, the club
And this is for the people on the, the, the block

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey

(Shh)
Back it up now

Woah, woah, woah, woah, woah

    General CommentLove it. Clearly a self-aggrandizing song, and a slight kiss-off to her huge amount of haters.
