Hell No! Lyrics
Hell No! Song Lyrics
You told Harpo to beat me?!
I love Harpo. God knows I do. But Ill kill him dead, 'fo I let him or anybody beat me!
All my life I had to fight!
I had to fight my daddy!
I had to fight my brothers, my cousins, my uncles too!
But I never, never, never, never, never, never thought I'd have to fight
In my own house!
I feel sorry for you to tell you the truth.
You remind me of my momma!
Under yo' husband's thumb, naw
You under yo' husband's foot!
What he say go!
Why you so scared I'll never know.
But if a man raise his hand...Hell no!
Girl child aint safe in a family of mens!
Sick and tired how a woman still live like a slave.
Oh, you better learn how to fight back
While you still alive!
You show them, girl, and beat back that jive!
Cause when a man jus dont give a damn...Hell no!
What you gon' do now?
My sisters comin' to get me. I think I need a vacation on up and away from here.
But Harpo yo' husband. You got to stay wit' him. I know you love 'em
When that man used to touch me
He'd climb on top and start to rock me away
Lord knows I still loves him
But he tried to make me mind
And I just aint that kind, hell no!
Sometimes my husband get on me so hard, he hurt me all over.
But he my husband. So I jus' talk to my ol' maker.
This life'll soon be over. Heaven last always!
What you oughta do is bash Mister's head open and thank ol' Heaven later.
You cant stay here, girl! Sisters!
Sister 4 (spoken):
Mmmm, hell no!
Hell no! Lets go!
Gonna be yo; rock! Gonna be yo' tree, yeah!
Something to hold on to in yo' time of need!
Well, you too good for that man!
Man, that man!
(I'm gonna take yo' hand!)
Take my hand!
Sister, you got to go!
Dont be no fool! Dont waste your time!
Any man who hurts you aint worth a dime!
What he wont know til yo' gone
Til she gone!
(Throw him away!)
She be gone!
Sister, you got to go!
Girl, you too good for that man!
Let me take you away!
(Sister!) Come on, go away!
(Sister!) Dont you wanna go away?
(Sister!) You gotta, you gotta leave today!
Sister, you got to say!
You got to say, you need to say, you better say, you oughta say!
Hell, hell, hell, hell, hell, hell!
