  • Oh, my, God Becky, look at her butt
    It is so big, she looks like
    One of those rap guys' girlfriends.
    But, ya know, who understands those rap guys?
    They only talk to her, because,
    She looks like a total prostitute, 'kay?
    I mean, her butt, is just so big
    I can't believe it's just so round, it's like out there
    I mean gross, look
    She's just so, black

    I like big butts and I can not lie
    You other brothers can't deny
    That when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist
    And a round thing in your face
    You get sprung, want to pull up tough
    'Cause you notice that butt was stuffed
    Deep in the jeans she's wearing
    I'm hooked and I can't stop staring
    Oh baby, I want to get wit'cha
    And take your picture
    My homeboys tried to warn me
    But with that butt you got makes (me so horny)
    Ooh, Rump-o'-smooth-skin
    You say you want to get in my Benz?
    Well, use me, use me
    'Cause you ain't that average groupie
    I've seen her dancin'
    To hell with romancin'
    She's sweat, wet,
    Got it goin' like a turbo 'Vette
    I'm tired of magazines
    Sayin' flat butts are the thing
    Take the average black man and ask him that
    She gotta pack much back
    So, fellas (yeah) Fellas (yeah)
    Has your girlfriend got the butt? (hell yeah)
    Tell 'em to shake it (shake it) shake it (shake it)
    Shake that healthy butt
    Baby got back (L.A. fits with the Oakland booty)

    Baby got back (L.A. fits with the Oakland booty)

    I like 'em round, and big
    And when I'm throwin' a gig
    I just can't help myself, I'm actin' like an animal
    Now here's my scandal
    I want to get you home
    And ugh, double-up, ugh, ugh
    I ain't talkin' bout Playboy
    'Cause silicone parts are made for toys
    I want 'em real thick and juicy
    So find that juicy double
    Mix-a-Lot's in trouble
    Beggin' for a piece of that bubble
    So I'm lookin' at rock videos
    Knock-kneed bimbos walkin' like hoes
    You can have them bimbos
    I'll keep my women like Flo Jo
    A word to the thick soul sistas, I want to get with ya
    I won't cuss or hit ya
    But I gotta be straight when I say I want to fuck
    Til the break of dawn
    Baby got it goin' on
    A lot of simps won't like this song
    'Cause them punks like to hit it and quit it
    And I'd rather stay and play
    'Cause I'm long, and I'm strong
    And I'm down to get the friction on
    So, ladies (Yeah) Ladies (Yeah)
    If you want to role in my Mercedes (Yeah)
    Then turn around, stick it out
    Even white boys got to shout
    Baby got back

    Baby got back
    Yeah, baby, when it comes to females
    Cosmo ain't got nothin'
    To do with my selection
    Thirty six-twenty- four-thirty six
    Ha ha, only if she's 5'3

    So your girlfriend rolls a Honda, playin' workout tapes by Fonda
    But Fonda ain't got a motor in the back of her Honda
    My anaconda don't want none
    Unless you've got buns, hon
    You can do side bends or sit-ups
    But please don't lose that butt
    Some brothers want to play that hard role
    And tell you that the butt ain't gol'
    So they toss it and leave it
    And I pull up quick to retrieve it
    So Cosmo says you're fat
    Well I ain't down with that
    'Cause your waist is small and your curves are kickin'
    And I'm thinkin' bout stickin'
    To the beanpole dames in the magazines
    You ain't it, Miss Thing
    Give me a sista, I can't resist her
    Red beans and rice didn't miss her
    Some knucklehead tried to dis
    'Cause his girls are on my list
    He had game but he chose to hit 'em
    And I pull up quick to get wit 'em
    So ladies, if the butt is round,
    And you want a triple X throw down,
    Dial 1-900-MIXALOT
    And kick them nasty thoughts
    Baby got back

    Baby got back

    (Little in the middle but she got much back)
    (Little in the middle but she got much back)
    (Little in the middle but she got much back)

  • Sir-mix-a-little from PaSeason 1 episode 6 of Futurama "A Fishful of Dollars" features Fry listening to this song. Leela comes in and tells him to stop sitting in the dark listening to classical music. Clip here: https://youtu.be/wlfE_IplWAU
  • John from Portland, MeAny English speaking person who needs the meaning of this song explained to them probably fits the legal definition of mentally retarded.
  • Katie from Niceville, FlI'm a skinny white girl and I love this song. Hahahah
  • Jennifer Harris from Grand Blanc, MiThis song was on an episode of motormouth on vh-1. It had this guy singing baby Got back and here he is getting fast food restaurant food and singing Baby Got Back.
  • Kandyman1028 from Palm Beach Gardens, FlLyrics..."I was lookin' at rock videos, knock-kneed bimbos walkin' like ho's"...so I guess he's saying the white girls in rock videos are unattractive bimbos who walk like hookers...and somebody described this as "intelligently written"?? Um, right.
  • Rahul from Chennai, Indialol.... damn funny song.... but people flinch wen they play this in public.....
  • Michaela from Ellsworth, KsLuv this song it was played at my sisters wedding and everyone got funky!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ha ha ha lol
  • Diverdriver from Petaluma, CaThis song was used as the opening credits music for Scary Movie 4.
  • Marissa from Akron, OhWedding DJ guy (Aaron): I know exactly what you mean. And at school dances when that God-awful song "My Humps" was popular, it was always the girl who had no breasts and no "junk in the trunk" who would request that song! And I actually have curves, and I hated that song, but I do like "Baby Got Back" just because it's funny. I remember blaring it at my tenth birthday party.
  • Breba from Albuquerque, Nmlol, this guy in one of my classes sang this song to me. That was fun
  • Terra from St. Louis, MoI absolutely LOVE this song (and Rump Shaker)! I'm a white girl with a big butt (2 pants sizes larger than my waist!) and these songs make me feel good. I'm proud to have a little junk in my trunk!
  • Doug from Oakland, CaAll those sisters out there who look FINE at 20 with those big butts look a WHOLE lot different when they are 40 and their nickname is Wagonass!
  • Mandie from Port Royal, Paall men know weather they admitt or not that they cant help but stare if she got a big booty and the curves to go with it
  • Eric from Milltown, Ingreat song, lets not forget it was in Jackass The Movie during the "Sweaty Fat F**ks" skit
  • Tony from Topeka, KsThis song is quite possibly my Kryptonite. I can sympathize with Aaron on this one; it is unfortunately a staple of high school and college dances. As Murray Head once said, I get my kicks ABOVE the waistline, sunshine.
  • Terry from Northampton, EnglandMake no mistake,women with big butts are so (deleted).To all those lovely black women out there i say,"keep shakin that booty"
  • Blue from New York City, NyI have this song on my MP3 player and everytime I listen to it, I have to say amen to Sir Mix-a-lot. Every word is the truth (Every word). All the ladies that have big butts should send a video, slide-show, photo montage or anything that shows them shaking their booty to this song. (Just an idea, but a good one I think ;-])
  • Patty from New York City, NyOh Goodness this song is off the heisy i love it cause i have a big butt so the song makes me feel
    a whole lot better i just luv that song so much



    luv,pattsie cline
  • James from Vidalia, Ga"Donkey" (voiced by Eddie Murphy) sings a version of this to a dragon (with a big butt) in Dreamworks' film Shrek.

    I like em big myself! Comment from Mr. Obvious: People who take this too seriously are not the intended audience anyway. Turn it off if you're hopelessly drawn to tiny butts! :p
  • Marlow from Perthi remember this guy had a song called square dance rap in about 85.. no it wasnt a big hit..im a whitey who likes a lovely tight ass.. sorry girls no fries with your big mac today!
  • Sarah Floyd from Bloomingdale, Ilwell i like this song. and i got to admit i do have a big butt!! and i like this song. and i dont know why guys like big butts and the chest area of the girls. maybe the guy thinks he can get something out of the woman.
  • Whitney from Hazelhurst, GaI pesonally love this song!! I weigh 142 pounds so my booty is gigantic. Well sorta normal but that is beside the point. Great song Great rapper great idea.
  • Kristina from Houston, Txhaha what a song!
  • Anna from San Francisco, CaWhen one of my best friends and I listen to this song, we just sing to the lyrics and laugh while singing.. It is such a funny song.
  • Whitney from Sallisaw, OkI love this song because i have a big butt and it makes me laugh!! Not all songs are ment to educate or touch a life, some are just to entertain! Ease up on the guy and just enjoy it!
  • Steve from Keene, Nhjeeze, another pointless song, yes songs are made for entertainment, but as far as pop, and most newer rap, it's pointless, mindless drivle. please give us something that has some meaning, or make some yourself. please people that have gifts and abilities to write meaningful music, don't deprive us of it.
  • Max from New York, NyAlso, I think there is more to this song that meets the eye. "Now cosmo says your fat. Well I ain't down with that." It's a message that's telling girls to stay the way they are no matter how much rich, anorexic, flat chested white girls say they're fat. "So ladies, yeah, ladies, yeah, keep that healthy butt. Baby Got Back."
  • Max from New York, NyActually Mix-A-Lot didn't nessecarilly recede into one hit wonder land. He actually started his own record label in and it's fairly succesful, but thats why he never followed up.
  • Homer from Versailles, IlMy favorite use of this song was the episode of Friends where the only way Ross and Rachel could get Emma (their baby daughter) to laugh was to sing this song. Watching Jennifer Aniston sing this song is a hoot!
  • Matt from Millbrae, CaI'm a white boy, and even white boys got to shout baby got back.
  • Alec from Sewell, NjVery nice song to appreciate the women with the larger bottom packs.

    Of course, this wasn't the FIRST song to cover girls with big butts. There was "Fat-Bottomed Girls" by Queen (one of my favorites), and of course, the song from Spinal Tap, "Big Bottom".

    Big bottom, big bottom, talk about bum-cakes, my girl's got 'em...
  • Stephanie from Calgary, Canadai love this song..... i have a big butt :) hahaha
  • Amanda from Mineral Ridge, Ohi like big butts too (just kidding) but this is a good booty shakin song
  • Sandy from Mckeesport, PaMy sister and all of my friends say that this is my song. everytine when we go out and this song comes on, they all make a circle and make me get in the middle.
  • C.j. from Tunkhannock, Pathe beauty part of this song, other than the fact it's about asses, is that before this, mix-a-lot was making politically charged activist rap. last person i would think to make an activistic song.
  • Tom from Alma, GaAhhh, another well thought out, intelligently written, and respectful rap song.
  • Caitlin from Sailsbury, Ncwe were in french class and it was the last day and the teacher told everyone to name my theme song and this was the #1 theme song besides for yous a hoe and slave for you.( ppl say i have the biggest but for a white girl)
  • Ok...next... from Somewhere?, EuropeThere is a metalcore/rapcore cover of this song by Throwdown... And it's great..
  • Brittany from Philadelphia, Pai love sir mix a lot he is so so so so i dont know what to say he is a great singer
  • Aaron from Algonquin, IlI'm a wedding Dj, and every wedding I do, WITHOUT FAIL the skinniest white girl in the party will ask for this song.
  • Matt from Albuquerque, NmPlayed mercilessly and incessantly at karaoke bars worldwide.
  • Rosie from Waco, TxThis is a great song that me and my friends dance to all the time, plus, I have also mastered the bird(haha). Anyways if you haven't heard this song yet, go download it!
  • Jared from Norwalk, OhThis is a great song. One of my favorite songs of all times. The part when they used "Me So Horny" (the famous line from the hooker from Full Metal Jacket).
