When you see that girl comin', back up
She ain't yo average chick, back up
This is for the, the, the club
And this is for the people on the, the, the block

When you see that girl comin', back up
She ain't yo average chick, back up
This is for the, the, the club
And this is for the people on the, the, the block

She ain't the average chick, she the baddest chick
She ain't the average chick, she the baddest chick

E-e-everybody know that face
Even with her head low, they still know that shape
When she come through the club people take they place
Chicks throwin' handcuffs 'cause they knowin' they man ain't safe

'Cause she the one switchin' up flows
If its 4 door, 2 gotta go
Chicks like, what kinda jeans is those?
And fellas watchin' like, please get low

When you see that girl comin', back up
She ain't yo average chick, back up
This is for the, the, the club
And this is for the people on the, the, the block

When you see that girl comin', back up
She ain't yo average chick, back up
This is for the, the, the club
And this is for the people on the, the, the block

She ain't the average chick, she the baddest chick
She ain't the average chick, she the baddest chick

E-e-everybody cant do this
Some ain't gotta clue 'til they hear me spit
Ah, chu, I spew 'cause yo girl is sick
Is it the change or the hips you can't tell but you know its thick

'Cause she the one switchin' up flows
If its 4 door, 2 gotta go
Chicks like, what kinda jeans is those?
And fellas watchin' like, please get low

When you see that girl comin', back up
She ain't yo average chick, back up
This is for the, the, the club
And this is for the people on the, the, the block

When you see that girl comin', back up
She ain't yo average chick, back up
This is for the, the, the club
And this is for the people on the, the, the block

She ain't the average chick, she the baddest chick
She ain't the average chick, she the baddest chick

For this type of girl its not that hard
You see her 'cause she's too far gone
They only prayin', pray for her downfall
Why they gotta be so envious?
Doin' what it do fit to be a plus

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

Back up, back up

When you see that girl comin', back up
She ain't yo average chick, back up
This is for the, the, the club
And this is for the people on the, the, the block

When you see that girl comin', back up
She ain't yo average chick, back up
This is for the, the, the club
And this is for the people on the, the, the block

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey

Back it up now

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

    Absolutely loved everything about this song the very first time i heard it! From the music to the lyrics its very empowering! Whether a black or a white woman.. Every woman who has busted her butt working hard for her lifestyle, husband, children, and family values can relate to the envious ways of those who lack it but want it!! So annoying for other women especially to plot & plan for ways to interrupt someone's household!! Whether a "jump off, booty call, one night stand, jealous baby mama, friend, sister, or female relative"... Please find your own image & ego.. Adapt to your own lifestyle, but don't spit venom on a woman that is naturally born a true boss!! Jealousy and envy are such weak emotions and unattractive traits!! #only real independent bad chics please stand up!!
