[Sing:]Hey, Hey
[Say:]Red one, you know I can do better than you.
I can do it even better in broken heels.
[Sing:]Hey, hey
All the ladies tell the fellas we can do what they can do,
We can do it even better in broken heels.

I roll my sleeves up, wrap my hair up,
There's no sign on the road, so I never stop.
Can you catch me, yeah yeah yeah,
You'll never catch me, ay ay ay.
I'm fresh out the box, fast like a fox,
Boss in my shoes, tick tock, 12 o'clock,
You better watch me, yeah yeah yeah,
Sit back and watch me, ay ay ay.

You go hard yes you do,
When I go it's a magic show,
Oh oh oh oh oh oh,
I get it when I want it, and I get it right.

[Chorus:]
Hey, hey,
All the ladies tell the fellas we can do what they can do,
We can do it even better in broken heels.
Hey, hey
All the ladies tell the fellas, we can do what they can do,
We can do it even better in broken heels.
Anything you can do, I can do better,
Boy, I can do it in broken heels.
Anything you can do, we can do better,
Boy, I can do it in broken, broken heels.

When you're steppin' up, I'm 20 levels up,
I took the escalator, elevator to the top,
How you like me, yeah yeah yeah,
You gotta like me, ay ay ay.
Oh you know we rock, we control the block,
Whatever's goin' down, ladies take the biggest cut,
We bring the party, yeah yeah yeah,
We bought the party, ay ay ay.

You go hard, yes you do,
When I go it's a magic show
Oh oh oh oh oh oh,
I get it when I want it, and I get it right.

[Chorus:]
Hey, |Hey
All the ladies tell the fellas we can do what they can do,
We can do it even better in broken heels.
Hey, hey,
All the ladies tell the fellas, we can do what they can do,
We can do it even better in broken heels.
Anything you can do, I can do better,
Boy, I can do it in broken heels.
Anything you can do, we can do better,
Boy, I can do it in broken, broken heels.

[Chorus:]
Hey, hey,
All the ladies tell the fellas we can do what they can do,
We can do it even better in broken heels.
Hey, hey
All the ladies tell the fellas, we can do what they can do,
We can do it even better in broken heels.
Anything you can do, I can do better,
Boy, I can do it in broken heels.
Anything you can do, we can do better,
Boy, I can do it in broken, broken heels.
Anything you can do, I can do better,
Boy, I can do it in broken heels.
Anything you can do, we can do better,
Boy, I can do it in broken, broken heels.

    I am forty years old have spent most of my life being told that men are biologically superior. Men earn more, are more likely to be offered jobs in senior management, without being asked who they slept with to get the job and are considered the "head of the household".

    This song may not be the height of lyrical mastery but does make a very valid point, although I am unsure as to the reference to damaged footwear; wondering if she's actually saying we would achieve more if we concentrated less on looking pretty/sexy and more on achieving? Or maybe not, just a thought.

    I agree that she is on dangerous and rather hypocritical ground if she's suggesting women are biologically superior; but having grown up in the 80's when rape victims asked for it, unmarried mums were thick sluts who wanted a council flat and clever was not sexy I'm willing to let that one slide

    personally think this song is so flaming sexist if a bloke sung a song about women been useless sayin they can do everything better than a woman in torn shoes there would be allsorts of complaints. I mean take for example the chocolate bar yorkie slogan was its not for girls what happened complaints went in and they had to change there slogan flamin joke but we have to put up with it dont we.
