Song Lyrics

Like a Girl Song Lyrics


[Verse]
Woke up feelin' like I just might run for president (Run for president)
Even if there ain't no precedent (Nah)
Switchin' up the messagin'
I'm about to add a little estrogen (Huh, yeah)
Buy my whip by myself (By myself)
Pay my rent by myself (By myself)
Only exes that I care about are in my f**king chromosomes
I don't really need you, I'm Macaulay Culkin, "Home Alone"
Bad b**ch, diamonds in my collarbone (Yee, yee)
Buy my whip by myself
Pay my rent by myself

Sugar, spice, and I'm nice, show me what you're made of
Crazy, sexy, cool, baby, with or without makeup
Got nothin' to prove (I got nothin' to prove)
But I'ma show you how I do

Find me up in Magic City, bustin' hundreds by the bands
And I throw it (Like a girl)
Go and throw it (Like a girl)
Hangin' out the 750, feelin' bossy in my city
'Cause I run it (Like a girl)
Run it, run it (Like a girl)
I work my femininity, I make these boys get on their knees
Now watch me do it, watch me do it, look it, look it, I'ma do it
Like a girl (Like a girl)
Like a girl (Like a girl)

Chaka Khan through the fire, light the kerosene (We can do it)
Lauryn Hill told me everything is everything (We can do it)
Serena Willy showed me I can win the Wimbledon (We can do it)
Uh, put me on a pedestal, bet on me, bet I will

Sugar, spice, and I'm nice, show me what you're made of
Crazy, sexy, cool, baby, with or without makeup
Got nothin' to prove (Got nothin' to prove)
But I'ma show you how I do (I'ma show you how I do)

Find me up in Magic City, bustin' hundreds by the bands
And I throw it (Like a girl)
Go and throw it (Like a girl)
Hangin' out the 750, feelin' bossy in my city
'Cause I run it (Like a girl)
Run it, run it (Like a girl)
I work my femininity, I make these boys get on their knees
Now watch me do it, watch me do it, look it, look it, I'ma do it
Like a girl (Like a girl)
Like a girl (Like a girl)

So if you fight like a girl, cry like a girl
Do your thing, run the whole damn world
If you feel like a girl, then you're real like a girl
Do your thing, run the whole damn world
If you fight like a girl, cry like a girl
Do your thing, run the whole damn world
If you feel like a girl, then you're real like a girl
Do your thing, run the whole damn world

Find me up in Magic City, bustin' hundreds by the bands
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
And I throw it (Like a girl)
Go and throw it (Like a girl)
Hangin' out the 750 (Hangin' out the 750, baby)
Feelin' bossy in my city
'Cause I run it (Like a girl)
(Yeah, I run it like a girl)
Run it, run it (Like a girl)
I work my femininity (Yeah, I work it, baby)
I make these boys get on their knees (Get on your knees, yeah)
Now watch me do it, watch me do it, look it, look it, I'ma do it
(Watch me do it)
Like a girl (Like a girl)
Like a girl (Like a girl)
(Oh, yeah)

(sh*t, f**k, I didn't know it was endin' right there)

Artist Info:


Lizzo is an American singer, rapper, and flutist who has definitely found a niche within the music world, with her empowering lyrics and larger-than-life personality. She became a musical dynamo in the 2010s, connected to pop, hip-hop, and classical influences. Lizzo's power reigns supreme in body positivity and self-love, themes that routinely snatch props from her music. She infuses lively, catchy beats with loud, declarative lyrics that burn down social norms on paper and demand individuality. What Lizzo creates often brings in some element of fun and humor, but it's not just that—she doesn't shy away from battling with serious cultural issues. This approach has not only won her numerous awards but also a following that values her not just for her musical talent but her role as an influencer to world cultures.

Annotations and their Meanings:


Lizzo "Like a Girl" takes that insult and makes it a powerful reclaiming anthem, changing the common phrase "like a girl" from something that was known to be an insult and turning it on its head to be an absolute statement of strength and empowerment. The lyrics mix a dynamic personal achievement with feminist power, independence, and self-reliance. Lines like "Buy my whip by myself / Pay my rent by myself" go further to state the financial independence of the woman, while references to role models in the likes of Chaka Khan, Lauryn Hill, and Serena Williams drive the point of possibility home among women to reach great heights.
The hook, "And I throw it / Like a girl," humorously mocks the phrase by using it to exemplify that doing something 'like a girl' should not be an insult. The tune assumes a pretty vibrant and aggressive character, throwing challenges at the listeners to come out with their identities and potential and burst the cobweb of social gender criticism.
Every repetition of empowering lines, such as "run the whole damn world," and the imperatives in each case—fight, cry, or basically breathe as a woman—become replete with empowerment and legitimize any and every female experience. And Lizzo, in brilliant lyricism with "Like a Girl," does just that. Her words are catchy, bold, and make the listener feel seen and inspired, driving "Like a Girl" to be the modern, encouraging women's anthem it's meant to.
