Lyrics:

 

Uh huh, this is my s**t

All the girls stomp your feet like this

 

A few times I’ve been around that track

So it’s not just gonna happen like that

Because I ain’t no hollaback girl

I ain’t no hollaback girl [x2]

 

Ooooh ooh, this my s**t, this my s**t [x4]

 

I heard that you were talking s**t

And you didn’t think that I would hear it

People hear you talking like that, getting everybody fired up

So I’m ready to attack, gonna lead the pack

Gonna get a touchdown, gonna take you out

That’s right, put your pom-poms downs, getting everybody fired up

 

A few times I’ve been around that track

So it’s not just gonna happen like that

Because I ain’t no hollaback girl

I ain’t no hollaback girl [x2]

 

Ooooh ooh, this my s**t, this my s**t [x4]

 

So that’s right dude, meet me at the bleachers

No principals,no student-teachers

Both of us want to be the winner, but there can only be one

So I’m gonna fight, gonna give it my all

Gonna make you fall, gonna sock it to you

That’s right I’m the last one standing, another one bites the dust

 

A few times I’ve been around that track

So it’s not just gonna happen like that

Because I ain’t no hollaback girl

I ain’t no hollaback girl [x2]

 

Ooooh ooh, this my s**t, this my s**t [x4]

 

Let me hear you say this s**t is bananas

B-A-N-A-N-A-S

(This s**t is bananas)

(B-A-N-A-N-A-S)

 

Again

This s**t is bananas

B-A-N-A-N-A-S

(This s**t is bananas)

(B-A-N-A-N-A-S)

 

A few times I’ve been around that track

So it’s not just gonna happen like that

Because I ain’t no hollaback girl

I ain’t no hollaback girl [x2]

 

Ooooh ooh, this my s**t, this my s**t [x4]
