Christina Aguilera Can't Hold Us Down -(featuring Lil' Kim) Lyrics

Last updated: 06/20/2010 11:00:00 AM

So-What am i not s'pposed to have an opinion?
Should i be quiet to speak because i'm a woman?
Call me a bitch (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 any little boy would do
Makin' up a few false rumors or two
That for sure is not a man to me
Slanderin' names for popularity
It's sad you only get your fame through controversy (so sad)
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, not heard
So what do we do girls?
Shout louder
Letting them know we're gonna stand our ground (our ground)
So lift your hands high and wave'em proud (wohoh)
Take a deep breath and say it loud,
Never can, never will
Can't hold us down

Nobody can hold us down (us down)...Nobody can hold us down (us down)...Nobody can hold us down (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 your words don't mean a thing
Cuz you ain't even a man enough to handle what i sing
If you look back in history it's a common double standard of society
The guy gets all the glory, the more he can score
While the girl can do the same and yet you call her a whore
I don't understand why its OK,
The guy can get away with it while a girl gets named
All my ladies come together and make a change

Start a new beginning for us, everybody sing


Lil' Kim:
Here's something I just can't understand
If the guy have three girls then he's a man
He can either give her some head, or sex her raw
If the girl do the same, then she's a whore
But the table's about to turn
I'll 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 movin'
To all my girls with a man who be tryin to mack
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 your back

You're just a little boy,
Think you're so cute, so coy
You must talk so big, to make up for smaller things
You're just a little boy
All you'll do is annoy
You must talk so big, to make up for smaller things,
This is for my girls...

Repeat Chorus X2

Ahh Wahoo ahh

Spread the word
Can't hold us down
Yeh we here
We Back again
Yeh Lil Kim and Christina Aguilera
Can’t hold us down!

To charlotte2k7 and everybody else:
We don't pretend men and women are equal.Women and men ARE equal.But they are treated differently and double standards have been set by society.That's the *point*.Men and women are equal but many people fail to acknowledge this.You see my point?
-Fact:All human beings are equal.
-Truth:Double standards and sex discrimination exist.
That's why a song like this exists in the first place.To remind people of equality and stop discrimination and sexism.

What can I say, it's an amazing song and really powerful message. On the other hand it's really sad that this song is so true.

LISTEN TO US GIRLS! | Reviewer: charlotte2k7 | 8/26/07

you dumbass guys probably don't realise that this song has a very important message! all of u men who disrespect women are gonna pay...
i read the lyrics and it's a clever message with a sexy beat...i still don't understand why a man gets all the ladies, he's a 'playa pimp' and a woman gets all the men and she's a 'whore' or 'easy' it's annoying that we pretend that men and women are equal. this is a perfect example of how men are treated differently...

This song really makes me as a female feel as if me and all females don't need doggs to mistreat us. because a good female needs a good male not a player or a dogg so I really think ALL females and ALL males should hear this song to know where strong women stand
