Here come the girls
Mmm, oh yeah

(BACKING TRACK: ERNIE K. DOE
Whoa, water, I don't need no lemonade)

Here come the girls! (Girls, Girls, Girls, Girls)
Here come the girls! (Girls, Girls, Girls, Girls)
Here come the girls! (Girls, Girls, Girls, Girls)
Here come the girls! (Girls, Girls, Girls, Girls)

Slippin? on my little black dress
5 inches I?m bound to impress
Turn it up, I?m a little temptress
Monroe?s got nothin? on me
Read my curves like poetry
Tonight we rule the world, beware 'cause here come the girls

[Chorus]
Here come the girls! (Girls, Girls, Girls, Girls)
Here come the girls! (Girls, Girls, Girls, Girls)
Here come the girls! (Girls, Girls, Girls, Girls)
Here come the girls! (Girls, Girls, Girls, Girls)

Here the whistle as I walk by
Shine like a crystal all through the night
One look will make a grown man cry
Step aside I got a starring role
Camera, Action, Here we go
Tonight we rule the world, beware 'cause here come the girls

[Chorus]
Here come the girls! (Girls, Girls, Girls, Girls)
Here come the girls! (Girls, Girls, Girls, Girls)
Here come the girls! (Girls, Girls, Girls, Girls)
Here come the girls! (Girls, Girls, Girls, Girls)

I?m filled with sexuality
With or without a man I feel complete
Stop speculating, I?m a regular girl
All independent women know
We got the guts to run the show
Don?t let no boy tell you nothing
You?re in control

[Chorus x2]
Here come the girls! (Girls, Girls, Girls, Girls)
Here come the girls! (Girls, Girls, Girls, Girls)
Here come the girls! (Girls, Girls, Girls, Girls)
Here come the girls! (Girls, Girls, Girls, Girls)
