Song Lyrics

Hit 'Em Up Style Song Lyrics


While he was schemeing
I was beamin in the Beamer just beamin
Can't believe that I caught my man cheatin'
So I found another way to make him pay for it all

So I went
To Neiman-Marcus on a shopping spree
And on the way I grabbed Soley and Mia
And as the cash box rang I thought everything away

(Oops)
There goes the dreams we used to say
(oops)
There goes the time we spent away
(oops)
There goes the love I had but you cheated on me
And thats worth that now
(oops)
There goes the house we made a home
(oops)
There goes you'll never leave me alone
For all the lies you told
This is what you owe

Hey Ladies
When your man wanna get buckwild
Just go back and Hit 'Em Up Style
Put your hands on his cash
And spend it to the last dime
For all the hard times
Oh
When you go then everything goes
From the crib to the ride and the clothes
So you better let him know that
If he messed up you gotta hit em up

While he was braggin
I was coming down the hill and just draggin
All his pictures and his clothes in the bag and
Sold everything else till there was just nothin left

And I paid
All the bills about a month too late
It's a shame we have to play these games
The love we had just fades away, away

(Oops)
There goes the dreams we used to say
(oops)
There goes the time we spent away
(oops)
There goes the love I had but you cheated on me
And thats worth that now
(oops)
There goes the house we made a home
(oops)
There goes you'll never leave me alone
For all the lies you told
This is what you owe

Hey Ladies
When your man wanna get buckwild
Just go back and Hit 'Em Up Style
Put your hands on his cash
And spend it to the last dime
For all the hard times
Oh
When you go then everything goes
From the crib to the ride and the clothes
So you better let him know that
If he messed up you gotta hit em up

Hey Ladies
When your man wanna get buckwild
Just go back and Hit 'Em Up Style
Put your hands on his cash
And spend it to the last dime
For all the hard times
Oh
When you go then everything goes
From the crib to the ride and the clothes
So you better let him know that
If he messed up you gotta hit em up

All of the dreams you sold
Left me out in the cold
What happened to the days when we used to trust each other
And all of the things I sold
Will take you until you get old
To get 'em back without me
Cuz revenge is better than money you see

Hey Ladies
When your man wanna get buckwild
Just go back and Hit 'Em Up Style
Put your hands on his cash
And spend it to the last dime
For all the hard times
Oh
When you go then everything goes
From the crib to the ride and the clothes
So you better let him know that
If he messed up you gotta hit em up

Annotations and Meaning:


"Hit 'Em Up Style (Oops!)" by Blu Cantrell is a song about revenge and empowerment following infidelity. The lyrics tell the story of a woman who discovers her partner's unfaithfulness and decides to retaliate by spending his money extravagantly. The opening lines, "While he was scheming I was beaming in the Beamer just beaming", contrast her initial happiness and his deceitful actions.
The chorus, "Hey Ladies, When your man wanna get buckwild, Just go back and Hit 'Em Up Style", calls on other women in similar situations to take financial revenge as a way to regain control. The phrase "Hit 'Em Up Style" implies using flair and style in the process of revenge, turning a painful situation into an opportunity for empowerment.

Throughout the song, the repetition of "oops" in verses like "(Oops) there goes the love I had but you cheated on me, and that's worth that now" highlights a dismissive attitude towards the lost love, suggesting that the betrayal has devalued their previous relationship. This attitude is mirrored by the act of spending his money, symbolizing the erasure of his presence and influence from her life.

The final lines delve deeper into trust and the consequences of betrayal, suggesting that the emotional trauma extends beyond immediate revenge. The lyrics, "All of the dreams you sold, Left me out in the cold", express the deeper emotional and psychological scars left by the deceit, framing the revenge not just as a moment of empowerment but also as a necessary act of emotional survival and closure.
