Doo Wop (That Thing) by Lauryn Hill is featured in The Back-Up Plan, the eighteenth episode of Season Five. It is sung by Mercedes and Santana.

With Mercedes asking for Santana's help with her music for the final cut of her album, the two try to find ways to get into the groove. Santana has the idea to find more of an underground style in New York, the girls perform the song in the basement of the building. The producer, at the end, concludes that Mercedes is set for her debut album.

Lyrics

Mercedes (Santana):
(Hahaha)
Yo, remember back on the boogie (Mmh)
When cats use to harmonize like (Yeah, yeah)
Yo, yo
My men and my women, don't

Mercedes with Santana:
Forget about the dean
Sirat al-Mustaqim

Mercedes (Santana):
Yo (Aha)
It's about a thing (Uh, yo)

If ya feel real good wave your hands in the air (Yeah, uh, uh)
And lick two shots in the atmosphere (Uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh)

Mercedes (with Santana):
Been three weeks since you've been (looking for your friend)
The (one you let hit it) and never (called you again) (Santana: Uh)
Remember when he told you he was 'bout the Benjamins (Santana: Uh, uh, yeah)
You act like you ain't hear him then gave him (a little trim)
To begin, how you think you really gon' pretend (Santana: Pretend)
Like you wasn't down then you (called him again)
Plus when you give it up so easy you ain't even fooling him (Santana: Yeah)
If you did it then, then you probably do it again (Santana: Yeah)

Santana (with Mercedes):
Talking out your neck sayin' you're a (Christian)
(A Muslim) sleeping with the gin
(Now that) was the sin that did (Jezebel in)
(Who you gon' tell) when the reper(cussions spin)

Mercedes (with Santana):
Showing off your (ass) cause you're thinking it's a trend
(Girlfriend) let me break it down for you again
You know I only say it cause I'm (truly genuine)
Don't be a (hardrock when you really are a gem)

Santana (Mercedes):
(with Mercedes: Babygirl) respect is just a minimum (Minimum)
Brothers messed up and you still defending them (Defending them)
Now Lauryn is only human (Human)
You don't think I haven't been through the same predicament

Mercedes (Santana):
(Come again) Let it sit inside your head like a million women in Philly, Penn. (Philly, Penn.)
It's silly when girls sell their soul because it's in (Cause it's in)
Look at where you be in hair weaves like Europeans (European)
Fake nails done by Koreans

Come again (Yeah, yeah)
My friend come again

That thing, that thing, that thing
That thing, that thing, that thing (Yo) (Mercedes: Yo)

Santana (with Mercedes):
The second verse is dedicated to the men (Mercedes: Men)
More concerned with his rims and his Timbs than his women
Him and his men come in the club like hooligans
Don't care who they offend popping yang (Mercedes: Yeah, you got yen)
Let's not pretend (they wanna pack pistol by they waist) men
Crystal by the case men, (still in they mother's basement)

Mercedes (Santana):
The pretty face, men claiming that they did a bid men
Need to take care of their three and four kids men
They facing a court case when the child's support late (Facing a court case when the child's support late)
Money taking, heart breaking now you wonder why women hate men (Why?)
The sneaky silent men the punk domestic violence men (Why?)
The quick to shoot the ceiling stop acting like boys and be men (Be men)

How you gon' win when you ain't right within (How you gon' win)
How you gon' win when you ain't right within (Within)
How you gon' win when you ain't right within (Be men)
Uh, uh
Come again
