Disrespect us, no, they won't

This goes out to all my girls
That's in the club rocking the latest
Who will buy it for themselves and get more money later

None of these people can fade me
I'm so good with this,
I remind you I'm so hood with this

Brittany with the WMHS Girls:

It's hot up in here
DJ don't be scared to run this, run this back
I'm repping for the girls who taking over the world
Have me raise a glass for the college grads
Anyone rolling I'll let you know what time it is, check

Brittany:
You can't hold me (WMHS Girls: Can't hold me)
I work my 9 to 5 and I (with the WMHS Girls: cut my cheque)

Brittany with the WMHS Girls:
This goes out to all the women getting it in,
You on your grind
To other men that respect what I do
Please accept my shine

Brittany:
Boy I know you love it
How we're smart enough to make these millions
Strong enough to bear the children
Then get back to business

See, you better not play me (Santana: Me)
Don't come here baby (Santana: Baby)
Hope you still like me (Santana: Like me)

Brittany with the WMHS Girls:
If you pay me!

My persuasion (Santana: Oooo) can build a nation
