Onstage Behavior:

Lyrics:

A-one, two

Do not like the way you slide

We do not like the soft inside

We do not like you many ways

And we could do without you for days

Baby-talking bitches

Looking for a man

Mama, baby, dada

Get lost while you can

We do not like the way you slide

We do not like the soft inside

We do not like you many ways

And we could do without you for days

Baby-talking bitches

Down with our fun

Man was meant for women

Why are you so dumb?

We do not like the way you slide

We do not like the soft inside

We do not like you many ways

And we could do without you for days
