  • Hey, oh, oh
    These girls ain't got nothin' on you

    Uh, say baby I had to mention
    That if you were a star you'd be the one I'm searching for
    Other girls they, they got attention
    But I just always feel like there in need of something you got
    It's obvious you're pretty
    Heard that you're a student working weekends in the city
    Trying to take you out girl, hope you're not too busy
    And if there's nothing wrong
    Got this little song for you to get ready to
    Put those fucking heels on and work it girl
    Let that mirror show you what you're doing
    Put that fucking dress on and work it kind of vicious
    Like somebody's taking pictures

    Shut it down, down, down (ay, ay, ay)
    You would shut it down, down, down (ay, ay, ay)
    You'd be the baddest girl around, 'round, 'round (ay, ay, ay)
    And they'd notice, they'd notice
    You would shut it down, down, down
    You would shut it down, down, down
    You'd be the baddest girl around, 'round, 'round
    And they'd notice, they'd notice
    You would shut it

    Hey, oh, oh
    These girls ain't got nothing on you
    They ain't got nothing on you
    They ain't got nothing on you
    Ki-Killa, Killa (hey)

    Girl you're the greatest
    And if he say you ain't, girl he's out his mind
    You're the finest
    And if he say you ain't, that boy done lost his mind
    Hey baby, every time you come around
    Shut it down like computers
    Hey lady, step into my heart
    And let me put you in the Louboutins
    What you want, what you need (yeah)
    I can be your everything (yeah)
    Them other niggas just wanna hit it
    But if they had it, wouldn't know what to do with it

    And together we shut it down, down, down
    They know we shut it down, down, down
    You'd be the baddest girl around, 'round, 'round
    And they'd notice (they'd know) they'd notice (they'd know)
    That we shut it down, down, down
    They know we shut it down, down, down
    Every time we come around, 'round, 'round
    And they'd notice (they'd know) they'd notice
    You shut it down

    TMZ, Concrete Loop
    You shut that motherfucker down, down
    Ice cream conversations they all want the scoop
    You shut that motherfucker down, down (you shut it down, down)

    Shooting stars all around her, fire, comets
    I could bring her through and shut 'em down, Onyx
    No, you're not imagining, they're looking at you long stares
    Even though she's standing out she looks like she belongs here
    You feel the hours pass, until you find somethin'
    I feel like when she moves, the time doesn't
    Yeah, baby you finer than your fine cousin, and your cousin fine
    But she don't have my heart beating double time
    You just shut it down girl
    Who told the cops where the party was?
    Why do I feel like I found the one?
    What's in these shots that you ordered us?
    Damn, I mean you sure know how to paint a town
    Ever since you came around, it's obvious

    You shut that thing down, you shut it down (down, down, down)
    You shut it down, you shut it down (down, down, down)
    You shut it down, you shut it down, you shut it
    And they'd notice, they'd notice (oh, oh)

    You looking good girl, go, go, go get 'em girl
    Go, go, go hit 'em girl, go, go, go, go, go, go
    You looking good girl, go, go, go get 'em girl
    Go, go, go hit 'em girl, go, go, go, go, go, go
    You shut it down
    You shut it down, down, down, down

    The way I'm feeling, the things I say
    All just happen when you pass my way, oh
    What can I do to make you stay?
    I know it's getting late, but girl I don't want you to leave
    You tell me you're just not the type, you wanna do this right
    And I'm not trying to say I don't believe you
    But I refuse to feel ashamed and if you feel the same
    Does waiting really make us better people?
    Take those fucking heels off, it's worth it girl
    Nothing is what I can picture you in
    So take that fucking dress off, I swear you won't forget me
    You'll be happy that you let me

    Lay you down, down, down
    I'm trying to lay you down, down, down
    You still the baddest girl around, 'round, 'round
    They'd notice, they'd notice
    Let me lay you down, down, down
    Trying to lay you down, down, down
    You still the baddest girl around, 'round, 'round
    And they'd notice, they'd notice
    You would shut it Writer/s: Aubrey Graham, Noah Shebib, Sidney Brown, Terrius Nash
