BABY GOT BACK

by Sir Mix-a-Lot


[spoken intro]
Oh my god!
Becky, look at her butt
It is so big!
She looks like one of those rap guy's girlfriends
But, you know, who understands those rap guys?
They only talk to her because she looks like a total prostitute, ok?
I mean her butt
It's just so big
I can't believe it's just so round
It's like out there
I mean, gross!
Look, she's just so ... black!


I like big butts and I can not lie
You other brothers can't deny
That when a girl walks in with a itty bitty waist
And a round thing in your face
You get sprung
Wanna pull up front
Cuz you notice that butt was stuffed
Deep in the jeans she's wearin'
I'm hooked and I can't stop starin'
Oh, ba-by, I wanna get wit' ya
And take your picture
My homeboys tried to warn me
But that butt you got makes
Me so horny!
Ooh, Rump-a-smooth-skin
You say you wanna get in my Benz?
Well use me, use me
Cuz you ain't that average groupie
I've seen her dancin'
To hell with romancin'
She's sweat, wet
Got it goin' like a turbo 'Vette
I'm tired of magazines
Saying flat butts are the thing
Take the average black man, and ask him that
She gotta pack much back
So fellas (yeah!), fellas (yeah!)
Has your girlfriend got da butt? (hell, yeah!)
Tell her to shake it (shake it), shake it (shake it)
Shake that healthy butt
Baby got back
(LA face with a Oakland booty)
Baby got back
(LA face with a Oakland booty)
(LA face with a Oakland booty)

I like 'em round and big
And when I'm throwin' a gig
I just can't help myself
I'm actin' like a animal
Now here's my scandal
I wanna get ya home
And (uh!), double up (uh! uh!)
I ain't talkin' 'bout Playboy
Cuz silicone parts are made for toys
I wan' 'em real thick and juicy
So find that juicy double
Mix-a-Lot's in trouble
Beggin' for a piece of that bubble
So I'm lookin' at rock videos
Knock-kneed bimbos walkin' like ho's
You can have them bimbos
I'll keep my women like Flo Jo
A word to the thick soul sistas
I wanna get with ya
I won't cuss or hit ya
But I gotta be straight when I say I wanna (ooh!)
'Til the break of dawn
Baby, got it goin' on
A lotta simps won't like this song
Cuz them punks like to hit it and quit it
And I'd rather stay and play
Cuz I'm long and I'm strong
And I'm down to get the friction on
So ladies (yeah!), ladies (yeah!)
If you wanna roll my Mercedes (yeah!)
Then turn around
Stick it out
Even white boys got to shout
Baby got back
Baby got back

[spoken]
Yeah baby
When it comes to females
Cosmo ain't got nothin' to do with my selection
36-24-36? Ah-ha
Only if she's five-three!


So your girlfriend throws a Honda
Playin' workout tapes by Fonda
But Fonda ain't got a motor in the back of her Honda
My anaconda
Don't want none unless you got buns, hon
You can do side bends or sit-ups
But please don't lose that butt
Some brothers wanna play that hard role
And tell you that the butt ain't gold
So they toss it, and leave it
And I pull up quick to retrieve it
So Cosmo says you're fat
Well, I ain't down with that
Cuz your waist is small and your curves are kickin'
And I'm thinkin' 'bout stickin'
To the beanpole dames in the magazines
You ain't it, Miss Thing
Give me a sista, I can't resist her
Red beans and rice didn't miss her
Some knucklehead tried to dis
Cuz his girls are on my list
He had game but he chose to hit 'em
And I pulled up quick to get with 'em
So ladies if the butt is round
And you wanna triple X throw down
Dial 1-900-Mix-a-Lot and kick them nasty thoughts
Baby got back
Baby got back

Little in the middle but she got much back
Little in the middle but she got much back
Little in the middle but she got much back
Little in the middle but she got much back
