So what am I not supposed to have an opinion  Should I keep quiet just because I'm a women 
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 to 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 for 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

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 and not heard 
So what do we do girls, shout out loud
 Lettin 'em know were gonna stand our ground 
So lift your hands high and wave 'em proud 
Take a deep breath and say it loud
 Never can, never will
Can't hold us down

 Nobody can hold us down
 Never can, never will

So-what am I not supposed to say what I'm saying 
Are you offended with the message I'm bringin'
Call me whatever 'cause you 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 a common double standard os society 
The guy gets all the glory the more he can score  While the girl can do the same yet you call her a whore 
I don't understand why it's OK,
The guy can get a way with it the girl gets named 
All my ladies come together and make a change 
And start a new beginning for us, everybody sang

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 and not heard 
So what do we do girls, shout out loud
 Lettin 'em know were gonna stand our ground 
So lift your ahnds high and wave 'em proud 
Take a deep breath and say it loud
 Never can, never will
Can't hold us down

Here's something I just can't understand 
If the guy have three girls then he's the man
He can even give her some head, or sex her off
But if a girl do the same, she's a whore 
But the tables about to turn
I bet my fame on it
Cats take my ideas, and put their name on it
It's aight though, you can't hold me down
I got to keep on moving 
To my girls to their man who be trying to mac
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 yo back

You're just a little boy
 Think you 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 big to make up for smaller things

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 and not heard 
So what do we do girls, shout out loud
 Lettin 'em know were gonna stand our ground 
So lift your ahnds high and wave 'em proud 
Take a deep breath and say it loud
 Never can, never will
Can't hold us down

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 and not heard 
So what do we do girls, shout out loud
 Lettin 'em know were gonna stand our ground 
So lift your ahnds high and wave 'em proud 
Take a deep breath and say it loud
 Never can, never will
Can't hold us down

Uh, oh oh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh
Can't hold us down

Yeah, we here, we back again, yeah,
Lil Kim and Christina Aguilera

Can't hold us down
