About Bossy

"Bossy" is a song by American R&B singer Kelis, featuring American rapper Too Short. It was released in the United States in January 2006 as the lead single from Kelis' fourth studio album, Kelis Was Here (2006). The song peaked at number 16 on the U. S. Billboard Hot 100, making it the singer's second biggest Hot 100 hit thus far, as well as Too Short's first top 40 hit. While "Bossy" entered the top ten in Finland and the top 20 in Australia, New Zealand and Spain, it failed to chart or sell noticeably elsewhere. The song features a Roland 808 drum machine. Sections of "Bossy" interpolate "Diamonds on My Neck" by Smitty, which in turns uses a sample of "Dangerous MC's" as performed by The Notorious B. I. G.. On December 11, 2006, "Bossy" was certified double platinum by the RIAA.

Aye yo 
You don't have to love me 
You don't even have to like me 
But you will respect me

You know why? 'Cause I'm a boss

Watch that thing go, uh, uh
Watch that thing go, uh, uh
Watch that thing go, uh, uh
Watch that thing go, uh, uh

I'm bossy
I'm the first girl to scream on a track
I switched up the beat of the drum
That's right I brought all the boys to the yard
And that's right, I'm the one that's tattooed on his arm
I'm bossy
I'm the bitch ya'll love to hate
I'm the chick that's raised the stake
I told young stunna he should switch debate
I'm back with an 808 'cause I'm bossy

Ooh lemme slow it down so ya can catch the flow (catch the flow)
Screw it up make it go extra slow (extra slow)
Real girls get down on the flow
(On the flow, get down on the flow)
Ooh if I gave you a taste you want some more
Touch down on me, pull it up like a pro
I ride the beat like a bicycle, I'm icy cold
Ooh from the 6-4 hoppers up in Crenshaw
The money makin' playas up in Harlem
Don't want no problems
We gonna keep it pumpin while the 808 is jumpin'

Diamonds on my neck, diamonds on my grill
Diamonds on my neck, diamonds on my grill

I'm bossy
I'm the first girl to scream on a track
I switched up the beat of the drum
That's right I brought all the boys to the yard
And that's right, I'm the one that's tattooed on his arm
I'm bossy
I'm the bitch ya'll love to hate
I'm the chick that's raised the stake
I told young stunna he should switch debate
I'm back with an 808 'cause I'm bossy

Ooh (I bet I bet I bet) 
I betcha never heard it like this before (this before)
My baby be closin' them Phantom doors (Phantom doors)
Got the bar poppin' this that you can't afford (can't afford)
Ooh I'm drinkin', blastin' the crowds it's all smokin'
All the while I'm all open
Me and my girls we stay fly and we love to stay high
Ooh from the 6-4 hoppers up in Crenshaw
To the money makin' playas up in Harlem
Don't want no problems
We gon' keep it pumpin while the 808 is jumpin'

Diamonds on my neck, diamonds on my grill
Diamonds on my neck, diamonds on my grill

I'm bossy
I'm the first girl to scream on a track
I switched up the beat of the drum
That's right I brought all the boys to the yard
And that's right I'm the one that's tattooed on his arm
I'm bossy
I'm the bitch ya'll love to hate
I'm the chick that's raised the stake
I told young stunna he should switch debate
I'm back with an 808 'cause I'm bossy

It's 'bout time that she get with me
Can't stop starin', she's fine and she's pretty
Damn girl, don't hurt 'em
If niggas don't back back, you gon' work em
Put your mack down, I know your background
Whatchu want girl, you gettin' mad now
That's how you do it, huh?
Well I'm the coolest one
In fact, bitches in the back bring 'em to the front, bitch!
Tell that man you's a boss bitch
Make some noise, raise your hand if you's a boss bitch
I don't think he understand you's a boss bitch
Get some help if you can 'cause he lost it
Ain't no refunds, she spent the cash mayne
In your Benz with her friends in the fast lane
Flossin', you say "How much it cost me?"
About a million dollars playa, she's bossy

I'm bossy
I'm the first girl to scream on a track
I switched up the beat of the drum
That's right I brought all the boys to the yard
And that's right I'm the one that's tattooed on his arm
I'm bossy
I'm the bitch ya'll love to hate
I'm the chick that's raised the stake
I told young stunna he should switch debate
I'm back with an 808 'cause I'm bossy

Uh uh watch the beat go
Uh uh watch that thing go
Uh uh watch the beat go
Uh uh watch that thing go
Uh uh watch the beat go
Uh uh watch that thing go
Uh uh watch the beat go
Uh uh watch that thing go
Uh uh
