Lyrics

Brittany with the Girls:
Girls, we run this motha (Girls: Yeah!) x4
Who run the world? (Girls!) x4
Who run this? (Girls!) x4
Who run the world? (Girls!) x4

Some of them men think they freak this like we do
But no they don't
Make your cheques come at they neck,
Disrespect us no they won't

Brittany:
Boy don't even try to touch this (Santana: Touch this)
Boy this beat is crazy (Santana: Crazy)
This is how they made me (Santana: Made me)
Houston, Texas baby (Santana: Baby)

Brittany with the Girls:
This goes out to all my girls
That's in the club rocking the latest
Who will buy it for themselves and get more money later

Brittany:
I think I need a barber
None of these people can fade me
I'm so good with this,
I remind you I'm so hood with this

Brittany with the Girls:
Boy I'm just playing, come here baby
Hope you still like me, if you pay me

Brittany (with Santana harmonizing):
My persuasion can build a nation
Endless power, our love we can devour

Santana:
You'll do anything for me

Brittany with the Girls:
Who run the world? (Girls!) x4
Who run this? (Girls!) x4
Who run the world? (Girls!) x4

It's hot up in here
DJ don't be scared to run this, run this back
I'm repping for the girls who taking over the world
Have me raise a glass for the college grads
Anyone rolling I'll let you know what time it is, check

Brittany:
You can't hold me (Santana: Can't hold me)
I work my 9 to 5 and I cut my cheque

Brittany with Santana backing:
This goes out to all the women getting it in,
Get on your grind
To the other men that respect what I do
Please accept my shine

Brittany:
Boy I know you love it
How we're smart enough to make these millions
Strong enough to bear the children
Then get back to business

See, you better not play me (Santana: Me)
Don't come here baby (Santana: Baby)
Hope you still like me (Santana: Like me)
If you pay me! (Santana: Pay me)

Brittany (with Santana harmonizing):
My persuasion can build a nation
Endless power, our love we can devour

Santana:
You'll do anything for me, who run the world? Girls!

Brittany with the Girls:
Who run the world? (Girls!) x4
Who run this? (Girls!) x4
Who run the world?(Girls!) x4

Girls:
Who are we?
What we run?
The world! (Brittany: Who run this motha?)
Who are we?
What we run?
The world! (Brittany: Who run this motha? Yeah)
Who are we?
What do we run?
We run the world! (Brittany: Who run this motha? Yep)
Who are we?
What we run?
We run the world!

Brittany:
Who run the world?
Girls!

Girls:
Girls!

Trivia

  • This is Brittany's first solo in Season Three.
  • This is one of the rare cases in which a backup-singer has a few lines during a song.
  • During the song, Lauren Zizes made a non-speaking role. She joins at the end and dance with the rest of the girls and celebrates the candidacy of Brittany. This marks her last appearance in the show.
  • Kurt was intimidated by the performance.
  • This is the second time that the Cheerios dance and singing backing in a solo against Kurt. The first time was in Bust Your Windows, both in the third episode of their respective seasons. Brittany is involved in both song (the first as back-up singer and the second is her first solo in the season).
