CAN'T HOLD US DOWN
Christina Aguilera


so what am i not supposed to have an opinion,
should i keep quiet just because i'm a woman,
call me a bitch cause i speak what's on my mind,
guess it's easier for you to swallow if i sat and smiled,
when a female fires back,
suddenly big talker don't know how act,
so he does what every little boy would do,
makin up a few false rumors or two,
that for sure is not a man to me,
slanderin names for popularity,
it's sad you only get your fame through controversy,
but now it's time for me to come and give you more to say,

(chorus):
this is for my girls all around the world,
who have come across a man that don't respect your worth,
thinkin all women should be seen not heard,
so what do we do girls,
shout out loud,
lettin em know we're gonna stand our ground,
so lift your hands higher and wave em proud,
take a deep breathe and say it loud,
never can never will,
can't hold us down,
nobody can hold us down(x3)
never can never will

so what am i not supposed to say what i'm saying,
are offended with the message i'm bringin,
call me whatever cause your words don't mean a thing,
guess you ain't even a man enough to handle what i sing,
if you look back in history,
it's common double standard of society,
the guy gets all the glory the more he can score,
while the girl can do the same and yet you call her a whore,
i don't understand why it's okay,
the guy can get away with it the girl gets named,
all my ladies come together and make a change,
and start a new beginning for us,
everybody sang,

(chorus)

(lil kim rap)
this is something i just can't understand,
if the guy have the girls then he the man,
he even give her some head and sex her off,
if a girl do the same then she's a whore,
but the tables bout to turn,
i bet my fame on it,
cats take my ideas,
and put their name on it,
it's alright though,
you can't hold me down,
i got to keep on movin,
to all the girls with a man who be tryin to mack,
do it right back to him and let that be that,
you need to let him know that his game is whack,
and lil kim and christina aguilera got your back,

you're just a little boy,
think your so cute so coy,
you must talk so big to make up for smaller things,
you're just a little boy
all you do is annoy,
you must talk so big to make up for smaller things,

(repeat chorus)
