  • There's only two types of people in the world
    The ones that entertain, and the ones that observe
    Well baby I'm a put-on-a-show kinda girl
    Don't like the backseat, gotta be first
    I'm like the ringleader
    I call the shots (call the shots)
    I'm like a firecracker
    I make it hot
    When I put on a show

    I feel the adrenaline moving through my veins
    Spotlight on me and I'm ready to break
    I'm like a performer, the dance floor is my stage
    Better be ready, hope that you feel the same

    All eyes on me in the center of the ring
    Just like a circus
    When I crack that whip, everybody gon' trip
    Just like a circus
    Don't stand there watching me, follow me
    Show me what you can do
    Everybody let go, we can make a dance floor
    Just like a circus

    There's only two types of guys out there
    Ones that can hang with me, and ones that are scared
    So baby I hope that you came prepared
    I run a tight ship so, beware
    I'm like the ringleader
    I call the shots (call the shots)
    I'm like a firecracker
    I make it hot
    When I put on a show

    I feel the adrenaline moving through my veins
    Spotlight on me and I'm ready to break
    I'm like a performer, the dance floor is my stage
    Better be ready, hope that ya feel the same

    All eyes on me in the center of the ring
    Just like a circus
    When I crack that whip, everybody gon' trip
    Just like a circus
    Don't stand there watching me, follow me
    Show me what you can do
    Everybody let go, we can make a dance floor
    Just like a circus

    Let's go
    Let me see what you can do
    I'm runnin' this (like, like, like, like a circus)
    Yeah
    Like a what? (like, like, like, like a circus)

    All eyes on me in the center of the ring
    Just like a circus
    When I crack that whip, everybody gon' trip
    Just like a circus
    Don't stand there watching me, follow me
    Show me what you can do
    Everybody let go, we can make a dance floor
    Just like a circus

    All the eyes on me in the center of the ring
    Just like a circus
    When I crack that whip, everybody gon' trip
    Just like a circus
    Don't stand there watching me, follow me
    Show me what you can do
    Everybody let go, we can make a dance floor

  • Zuko from Rancho , UtCruwd, I gotta admit: this song is actually good. I think Britney herself is a skank and a bitch and hate all of her songs except for this one. I enjoy the beat and it motivates me to go fast during my sport events. The video was pretty good. The only parts that I hated were the parts in which she wore skin colored tights, its was too relvealing. I wish she would quit showing off nudity. still, good song.
