Baby got back    (video)


(spoken : ) Oh, my God. Becky, look at her butt.

It is so big. She looks like, one of those rap guys' girlfriends.

But, you know, who understands those rap guys?

They only talk to her, because, she looks like a total prostitute, 'kay?

I mean, her butt, is just so sick. I can't believe it's so round, it's like,

out there, I mean - gross. Look! She's just so ... black!

     Em                                  A

    deep in the jeans she's wearing

           Em                                  A

    I'm hooked and I can't stop staring.

            Em        A

    Oh, baby, I wanna get with you

Em                       A

    and take your picture.

           Em                          A

    My homeboys tried to warn me,

                 Em                           A

    but that butt you got makes me so horny.


     Em                       A

          Em                A

    I'm tired of magazines

              Em                        A

    sayin' flat butts are the thing.

                    Em                                 A

    Take the average black man and ask him that,

Em                                  A

    she gotta pack much back.


           Em                     A

    So, fellas! (Yeah !) Fellas! (Yeah !)

                    Em                       A

    Has your girlfriend got the butt? (Hell, yeah !)

    now here's my scandal.

Em                           A

    I wanna get you home,

           Em                      A

    and ugh, double-up, ugh, ugh.

Em                              A

    I ain't talkin' bout Playboy,

                 Em                                      A

    'cause silicone parts are made for toys.

Em                  A                  Em

    I want 'em real thick and juicy.

          A                    Em

    so find that juicy double.


    Mix-a-Lot's in trouble,

     Em                                     A

    beggin' for a piece of that bubble.

                Em                  A

    So I'm lookin' at rock videos,

      Em                                 A

    knock-kneeded bimbos walkin' like hoes.

Em                                A

    You can have them bimbos,

          Em                            A

    I'll keep my women like Flo Jo.


         Em                             A

4. A word to the thick soul sisters,

                        Em                     A

    But I gotta be straight when I say :

    I wanna *fuck*till the break of dawn !


    Baby, got it goin' on !

                 Em                             A

    A lot of simps won't like this song,

                          Em                              A

    'cause them punks like to hit it and quit it.

                 Em                     A

    And I'd rather stay and play,

                     Em                    A

    'cause I'm long, and I'm strong,

                  Em                               A

    and I'm down to get the friction on.


           Em                      A

    So, ladies ! (Yeah !) Ladies ! (Yeah !),

                Em                            A

    If you wanna roll in my Mercedes (Yeah !),

            Em                   A

                Em                         A

    Even white boys got to shout.

    Baby got back !

       A           Em

    Baby got back !

                 A    - Em                A

    Yeah, baby,          when it comes to females,

Em - A                              Em          A                                  - Em - A

              Cosmo ain't got nothin' to do with my selection.

      Em     A          Em - A                      Em    - A

    36-24-36 ? Ha ha,         only if she's 5'3".


                  Em                      A

5. So your girlfriend rolls a Honda,

                 Em                       A

    playin' workout tapes by Fonda,

            Em                        A                                  Em

    but Fonda ain't got a motor in the back of her Honda.

           A              Em             A

    My anaconda don't want none

                           Em            A

    unless you've got buns, hun.

                  Em                       A

    You can do side bends or sit-ups,

             Em                              A

    but, please, don't lose that butt.


                 Em                                    A

    Some brothers wanna play that "hard" role,

           Em                                     A

    and tell you that the butt ain't gold.

                  Em             A

    So they toss it and leave it,

             Em                         A

    and I pull up quick to retrieve it.

           Em                          A

    So Cosmo says you're fat ?

            Em                         A

    Well, I ain't down with that !

                          Em                                A

    'Cause your waist is small and your curves are kickin',

Em                                   A

    and I'm thinkin' ‘bout stickin'.

                 Em                                 A

    To the beanpole dames in the magazines :

           Em                  A

    You ain't it, Miss Thing !

                      Em                    A

    Give me a sister, I can't resist her,

            Em                             A

    red beans and rice didn't miss her.

                 Em                          A

    Some knucklehead tried to dis,

                     Em                    A

    'cause his girls are on my list.

                  Em                               A

    He had game, but he chose to hit 'em,

              Em                          A

    and I pull up quick to get wit 'em.

           Em                           A

    So, ladies, if the butt is round,

                   Em                             A

    and you want a triple X throw down,

           Em       A

    Dial 1-900-MIXALOT,

            Em                       A

    and kick them nasty thoughts !

                    Em     - A     - Em - A     - Em - A     - Em

    Baby got back !

      A            Em     - A    - Em - A     - Em - A     - Em - A

    Baby got back !


     Em                                       A                      - Em - A

+  Little in the middle but she got much back !                  (3x)


     Em                                       A                      - Em

+  Little in the middle but she got much back !
