about

Silly dance songs because IDGAF, a sarcastically sexist critique of pop.

'Stepped in a new town
far away from home
Tell me, where can I boogie down.

'Stepped in a new town
far away from home
Tell me, where can I boogie down.

Where they do that?
Where they do that at?
I just wanna boogie down.

Will someone tell me where I can move my feet?
Tell me, where can I boogie down.
My booty's aching to shake and shimmy.
Tell me, where can I boogie down.

Where they do that?
Where they do that at?
I just wanna boogie down.

I wanna set the mood,
wanna feel the groove,
and turn my britches 'round.
I just wanna boogie down.

Alligator
on that phone
roll your window down.
I just wanna boogie down.

Where they do that?
Where they do that at?
I just wanna boogie down.

Let me float high
like a bird
'till there's no coming down.
I just wanna boogie down.

I wanna step.
I wan to groove.
I want to boogie down.
I just wanna boogie down.

I just wanna boogie down.

Shakin' my booty like I got one
White boy problems
Only asian girls know how to solve them

(shakin' my booty
shakin' my booty up)

Shakin' my booty like I shake in my boot.

It's those good girls,
who think about the bad things.
It's those bad things,
fillin' up a boy's dreams.

Combat your resistance.
You know the good from bad.
Come on, just calm down.
Don't let your mind go mad.

If you do this or don't do that,
it's still the opposite of can't.
Colonize your own wasteland.
The population's scant.

It's those good girls,
who think about the bad things.
It's those bad things,
fillin' up a boy's dreams.

(wanna be a good girl, don't you?
Just drop the faith.)

Embrace it; can you taste it?
Savor the known
Say yes to common sense.
Don't reap the tainted sown.

If you know this and don't know that,
then it's that choice that's oh so sad.
It's the evil faith in an unknown fact
that keeps you thinking you are bad.

It's those good girls,
who think about the bad things.
It's those bad things,
fillin' up a boy's dreams.

(wanna be a good girl, don't you?
Just drop the faith.)

Ay mami, you got me riled up.
The way you singin' with your knees up to your chin,
it's like you're tuning me right in.
"Now ooh, well I've wounded all I wanted and I'd swear I didn't need it; but, I do," it's like you're singing from me through you.

Ooooh, I wounded all I wanted and I'd swear I didn't need it.

I wanna pick you up.
I wanna pin you down.
If you wanna feel it good,
you better turn around.
So I can turn you out.

(I wanna girl with a black dress.
I wanna girl with red lipstick.
I wanna girl with some college debt.
I wanna girl who needs daddy to tell her what to do.)

Girl, I'll only pick you up.
I won't ever let you down.
Girl, I'll only pick you up.
And lift your feet up off the ground.

She wanna do it right.
She wanna work it good.
She just wanna rev my engine
by rubbing on the hood.

(I wanna girl with weak mind.
I wanna girl who says she's all mine.
I wanna girl who don't cook for herself.
But I want that girl who's still kinda skinny-fat.)

I wanna rock your roll.
Baby, we can roll around.
I wanna fill your whole mind.
I'll make it melt down.

Ay mami, you got me riled up.
The way you singin' with your knees up to your chin,
it's like you're tuning me right in.
"Now ooh, well I've wounded all I wanted and I'd swear I didn't need it; but, I do," it's like you're singing from me through you.

Super super so superficial.
Super super so superficial.

Baby

Obsessed with symbols,
but none of the meaning.

Simple shapes like circles,
lacking any feeling.

Baby

Super super so superficial.
Super super so superficial.

Never met a metaphor I don't like
I love me some simile.

Allegory means so much to me.
Don't annotate a single thing.

Baby

Super super so superficial.
Super super so superficial.

All about alliteration,
to justify creation.

Factions of fashion,
just put aside the passion.

Baby

Super super so superficial.
Super super so superficial.

You put the whore in horrendous,
when you measure the mass of us.

You put a horrible spell on me,
when you're treating me as tribally.

Baby

Super super so superficial.
Super super so superficial.

Baby

What does the world expect,
except the minimum and some self respect?

What won't the world accept,
accept the minimum, leave yourself bereft.

So long forgotten,
I can smell that sweet air.
So, my sweet nothing,
I'm gonna shake like I don't care.

C'mon over.
Shake it down.
Shake it forever.
Shake it all around.
