    Lyrics

    So, what, am I not supposed to have an opinion?
    Should I keep quiet just because I'm a woman?
    Call me a 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, so sad)
    But now it's time for me to come and give you more to say

    [chorus:]
    This is for my girls all around the world (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!
    Lettin 'em know we're gonna stand our ground (Stand our ground)
    So lift your hands high and wave 'em proud
    Take a deep breath and say it loud
    Never can, never will
    Can't hold us down

    Nobody can hold us down
    Nobody can hold us down
    Nobody can 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
    Guess 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 it's okay,
    The guy can get away with it, the girl gets named
    All my ladies come together and make a change
    And start a new beginning for us, everybody sing

    [chorus:]
    This is for my girls all around the world
    (around the world)
    Who have come across a man
    That don't respect your worth (repect your worth)
    Thinkin' all women should be seen not heard
    (can't get rid of us)
    So what do we do girls, shout louder
    Lettin 'em know we're gonna stand our ground
    (we're standing our ground this time)
    So lift your hands high and wave 'em proud
    Take a deep breath and say it loud
    Never can, never will
    Can't hold us down

    [Lil' Kim:]
    Here's something I just can't understand
    If the guy have three girls then he's the man
    He can even give her some head, or sex her off
    But if a girl do the same, she's a whore

    But the tables about to turn
    I 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 moving

    To my girls to their man who be trying to mac
    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 yo 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 do is annoy
    You must talk so big to make up for smaller things

    (This is for my girls)
    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
    (shout louder)
    Lettin 'em know we're gonna stand our ground
    (stand our ground)
    So lift your hands high and wave 'em proud
    Take a deep breath and say it loud
    Never can, never will
    Can't hold us down

    This is for my girls all around the world (for my girls)
    Who have come across a man that don't respect your worth
    (around the world)
    Thinkin' all women should be seen not heard
    So what do we do girls, shout louder
    Lettin 'em know we're gonna stand our ground (stand our ground)
    So lift your hands high and wave 'em proud
    Take a deep breath and say it loud
    Never can, never will
    Can't hold us down

    Uh, oh oh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh
    Can't hold us down

    [Lil Kim:]
    Yeah, we here, we back again, yeah,
    Lil Kim and Christina Aguilera

    Can't hold us down
