Lyrics

Mercedes:
If I could give you the world on a silver platter
Would it even matter?
You'd still be mad at me
If I could find in all this a dozen roses
That I would give to you, you'd still be miserable

'Cause in reality
I'm gonna be who I be
And I don't feel no faults
For all the lies that you bought
You can try as you may, break me down but I say
That it ain't up to you, go on and do what you do

Mercedes with Sue's Kids:
Hate on me, hater, now or later
'Cause I'm gonna do me, you'll be mad, baby (Sue's Kids: Go ahead and hate)
Go 'head and hate on me, hater, cause I'm not afraid of
What I got I paid for, you can hate on me

Mercedes:
Ooh, if I gave you peaches outta my own garden
And I made you a peach pie, would you slap me high?
Wonder if I gave you diamonds out of my own womb
Would you feel the love in that or ask why not the moon?

If I gave you sanity for the whole of humanity
Had all the solutions for the pain and pollution

Mercedes with Sue's Kids:
No matter where I live, despite the things I give

Mercedes:
You'll always be this way, so go ahead and

Mercedes with Sue's Kids:
Hate on me, hater, now or later
'Cause I'm gonna do me, you'll be mad, baby (Sue's Kids: Go ahead and hate)
Go 'head and hate on me, hater, cause I'm not afraid of
What I got I paid for, you can hate on me

Mercedes with Sue's Kids (Sue's Kids):
Hate on me, hater, now or later
'Cause I'm gonna do me, you'll be mad, baby (You cannot hate on me)
Go 'head and hate on me, hater ('Cause my mind is free)
'Cause I'm not afraid of (Feel my destiny)
What I got I paid for (So shall it be)

Mercedes:
You can hate on me

Tina:
You cannot hate on me (Mercedes: Hate on me, hater)

Mercedes (Sue's Kids):
Now or later ('Cause my mind is free)
'Cause I'm gonna do me (My destiny)
You'll be mad, baby (So shall it be) (Tina: So shall it be) (Hate on me)
Go 'head and hate on me, hater ('Cause my mind is free)
'Cause I'm not afraid of (Feel my destiny)
What I got I paid for (So shall it be) (Tina: So shall it be)
You can hate on me

Sue's Kids:
Hate on me

Mercedes with Sue's Kids:
Hate on me, hater (Sue's Kids: 'Cause my mind is free)
Now or later (Sue's Kids: Feel my destiny)

Mercedes:
'Cause I'm gonna do me (Sue's Kids: So shall it be)
You'll be made, baby (Tina: So shall, so shall it be, yeah)

Mercedes with Sue's Kids:
Go 'head and hate on me, hater
'Cause I'm not afraid of
What I got I paid for
You can hate on me (Mercedes: Yeah)

Trivia

  • The part of the performance that has Mercedes walking on chairs is also featured in My Life Would Suck Without You in Sectionals.
  • Chris Colfer has stated that Hate on Me was one of his least favorite performances to do, because of the outfit he wore. He stated it was "big and hot and hard to move around in."
  • This is one of the few songs where the backup singers sing lines by themselves.

Errors

  • During one of Mercedes' close-ups, Santana can be seen at the back of Mercedes, carrying a chair and placing it in front of her. But on the group shot, Santana can once again be seen at the back of Mercedes, doing the same things.
