Some of them men think they freak this like we do

Make your cheques come at they neck,
Disrespect us, no, they won't

That's in the club rocking the latest
Who will buy it for themselves and get more money later

None of these people can fade me

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 (WMHS Girls: Can't hold me)
I work my 9 to 5 and I (with the WMHS Girls: cut my cheque)

Brittany with the WMHS Girls:
This goes out to all the women getting it in,
You on your grind
To 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 (Santana: Ahhhh!)
Then get back to business

See, you better not play me (Santana: Play me)
Don't come here baby (Santana: Baby)
Hope you still like me (Santana: Like me)

Brittany with the WMHS Girls:
If you pay me!

Trivia

  • This is one of the rare cases in which a backup-singer has a few lines during a song.
  • When the girls lie down during the part in the Gymnasium, only the New Directions Girls that participated in the flash mob are seen standing.

Errors

  • During the performance, Kurt is standing next to Rachel near the lockers, then the camera switches back to Brittany, Kurt and Santana are standing in the middle of the hall. Then, a close up on Brittany, then we go back to Kurt who is now, still standing next to Rachel.
  • A man in a black suit is shown in background leaving, but during Brittany's performance the same man is shown near a locker of the school, but directly afterwards he isn't shown anymore.
  • While the female group dance scene in the gym, Quinn, Santana, and Tina join the flash dance. However in one scene, the camera shoots the girls from behind and panders outwards where it highlights Brittany, Quinn, and Santana but Tina has disappeared from her spot. However in the next scene - a front on camera - Tina is shown again in the same spot she should have been featured.
  • Towards the end of the song when the girls are supposed to be singing their part, they are not. The singing is heard however none of the girls, including Heather are moving their lips.
