  • Yeah, I say
    Bitch bad, woman good, lady better
    Hey, hey
    Hey, hey

    Now imagine there's a shorty, maybe five maybe four
    Ridin' 'round with his mama listening to the radio
    And a song comes on and a not far off from being born
    Doesn't know the difference between right and wrong
    Now I ain't trying to make it too complex
    But let's just say shorty has an undeveloped context
    About the perception of women these days
    His mama sings along and this what she says
    "Niggas, I'm a bad bitch, and I'm that bitch
    Something that's far above average"
    And maybe other rhyming words like cabbage and savage
    And baby carriage and other things that match it
    Couple of things are happenin' here
    First he's relatin' the word "bitch" with his mama comma
    And because she's relatin' to herself, his most important source of help
    And mental health, he may skew respect for dishonour

    Bitch bad, woman good
    Lady better, they misunderstood
    (I'm killin' these bitches) Uh, tell 'em
    Bitch bad, woman good
    Lady better, they misunderstood
    They misunderstood (I'm killin' these bitches)

    Yeah, now imagine a group of little girls nine through twelve
    On the internet watchin' videos listenin' to songs by themselves
    It doesn't really matter if they have parental clearance
    They understand the internet better than their parents
    Now being the internet, the content's probably uncensored
    They're young, so they're malleable and probably unmentored
    A complicated combination, maybe with no relevance
    Until that intelligence meets their favourite singer's preference
    "Bad bitches, bad bitches, bad bitches
    That's all I want and all I like in life is bad bitches, bad bitches"
    Now let's say that they less concerned with him
    And more with the video girl acquiescent to his whims
    Ah, the plot thickens
    High heels, long hair, fat booty, slim
    Reality check, I'm not trippin'
    They don't see a paid actress, just what makes a bad bitch

    Bitch bad, woman good
    Lady better, they misunderstood
    I say, I say, I say, I say, I say, I say (I'm killin' these bitches)
    Bitch bad, woman good
    Lady better, they misunderstood
    (I'm killin' these bitches)

    Disclaimer, this rhymer, Lupe, is not usin' "bitch" as a lesson
    But as a psychological weapon
    To set in your mind and really mess with your conceptions
    Discretion's, reflections, it's clever misdirection
    'Cause, while I was rappin' they was growin' up fast
    Nobody stepped in to ever slow 'em up, gasp
    Sure enough, in this little world
    The little boy meets one of those little girls
    And he thinks she a bad bitch and she thinks she a bad bitch
    He thinks disrespectfully, she thinks of that sexually
    She got the wrong idea, he don't wanna fuck her
    He think she's bad at bein' a bitch, like his mother
    Momma never dressed like that, come out the house hot mess like that
    Ass, titties, breasts like that, all out to impress like that
    Just like that, you see the fruit of the confusion
    He caught in a reality, she caught in an illusion
    Bad mean good to her, she really nice and smart
    But bad mean bad to him, bitch don't play your part
    But bitch still bad to her if you say it the wrong way
    But she think she a bitch, what a double entendre

    Bitch bad, woman good
    Lady better, they misunderstood
    I say, I say, I say, I say, I say, I say (I'm killin' these bitches)
    Bitch bad, woman good
    Lady better, they misunderstood
    (I'm killin' these bitches)

    Bitch bad, woman good, lady better
    They misunderstood
    You're misunderstood (I'm killin' these bitches)
    Bitch bad, woman good, lady better
