Songtekst

(Just a little bit)
(Just a little bit)
(Just a little bit)

Tell ya, I kinda like her, you know

I'm the fox that cold rocks, and I'm comin correct
And what I want is a little respect
Now if I don't get it, I'ma have to take it
And prove to y'all that I can make it

All the way, and not slightly
For those of you who took me lightly
I'ma have to put you all in check
And maybe then you'll show me a little respect

(Just a little bit) (I tell you, I can't relax, you know)
(Just a little bit)
(Just a little bit) I don't know, with kids today it's different
(Just a little bit)

You wanna riff, but you can't base
You're captivated by a smile on a pretty face
And of course breath-takin'
I proceed goin' wild, if I'm not mistaken

I am woman, watch me roar
I don't run my rhymes, they pour
And I don't be takin' shorts, I wear 'em
A rapper diss me, huh, I dare him

'Cause if he does that, then he'll be makin'
A big mistake, 'cause I start breakin'
And you don't want me to break
When the gold around your neck is fake!

A 24-carat persona, but I'm not Madonna
You come out your neck, and I'ma treat you like your mama
You don't like what I'm sayin', then you can step
Instead give a lady like me a little respect

(Just a little bit) (I tell you, I can't relax, you know)
(Just a little bit)
(Just a little bit) I don't know, with kids today it's different
(Just a little bit)

(Just a little bit)
(Just a little bit)
(Just a little bit)
(Just a little bit)

I can't stop, 'cause I'm hotter than hot
But when I see another rapper, I gots
To get wicked and kick it, and put em in check
And let 'em know the Double R's in effect

And since you're really captivated, super sexy, so seducin'
I do the rap, Howie Tee does the producin'
I need a scratch, Howie Tee, are you ready? (Sure)
Huh, let's do this

(I tell you, I can't relax, you know)
(I don't know, with kids today it's different)

How can you be hotter than July
I will tell you why, your guy
He wants to be my slave
I put him on a short leash, so he can behave

And you cover your face with a paperbag
'Cause I'm the kinda girl your man wish he had
And you remind me of the Bride of Frankenstein
Your hair so short that I can read what's on your mind

And since we're on the topic of hair, let me mention
To all the girls that wear extensions
You gotta be like me, and that's legit
And when I put on my jeans, they fit

'Cause I'm not lackin', in the back, and
I don't look like I be crackin' up
'Cause my body ain't flat
But yours kinda looks like that

And a lady like me cannot be dismissed
Leave the radio alone, 'cause you cannot adjust this

Then press eject
Just one of the ways you can show me a little respect!

(Just a little bit) (I tell you, I can't relax, you know)
(Just a little bit)
(Just a little bit) I don't know, with kids today it's different
(Just a little bit)

(Just a little bit)
(Just a little bit)
(Just a little bit)
(Just a little bit)

(I don't know, with kids today it's different)

(I tell you, I can't relax, you know)
(I don't know, with kids today it's different)
(I don't know, with kids today it's different)
(I don't know, with kids today it's different)

(I tell you, I can't relax, you know)
(Just a little bit)
