Lyrics of Hey Ya!

My baby don't mess around
because she loves me so and this is I know for sho'
But does she really want to?
But can't stand to se me walk out the door
Don't try to fight the feeling
'cause the thought alone is killing me right now
Thank God for mom and dad
for sticking two together
because we don't know how

Hey ya (8x)

You think you've got it, oh you think you've got it
But got it just don't get it until there's nothing at all
We get together oh, we get together
But separates always better when there's feelings involved
If what they say is nothing is forever
Then what makes, then what makes, then what makes
then what makes, then what makes HUH!!!
Then what makes love the excpetion?
So why oh? So why oh? So why oh?
So why oh? So why oh? Are we so denial?
When we know we're not happy here?

Hey ya (8x)

Don't want to meet your daddy, just want you in my Caddy
Don't want to meet you mama, just want to make you cumma
I'm, I'm, I'm just being honest, I'm just being honest

Allright now fellas
What's cooler than being cool?
Ice cold
I can't hear you? I say what's cooler than being cool?
Ice Cold
Alright alright alright alright alright alright alright
Alright now ladies! Yeah
We gon' break this thing down in just a few seconds! Now don't have me break this thang down for nothing! Now I wanna see y'all on y'all baddest behavior, lend me some sugar! I am your neighbor, aahhh! Here we go!! Shake it! Shake, shake it, shake it like a Polaroid picture

Now all Beyonce's and Lucy Liu's and Baby Dolls, get on the floor! You know what to do! You know what to do

Hey ya! (8x)


'Hey Ya!' is a song written and produced by André 3000 for his 2003 album 'The Love Below', part of the hip hop duo OutKast's double album 'Speakerboxxx/The Love Below'. The song takes influence from funk and rock music. A music video was produced featuring André 3000 as eight different versions of himself, playing on comparisons to The Beatles by mimicking their 1964 performance on 'The Ed Sullivan Show'. The song received praise from contemporary music critics, and it won a Grammy Award for Best Urban/Alternative Performance at the 46th Grammy Awards.

Along with 'The Way You Move', recorded by OutKast's other member Big Boi, 'Hey Ya!' was released by LaFace Records in September 2003 as one of the album's two lead singles. It became a commercial success, reaching the top five of most of the charts it entered, and topping the 'Billboard' Hot 100 and the ARIA Singles Chart, among others. Later it was named the 20th most successful song of the 2000s, on the 'Billboard' Hot 100 Songs of the Decade. The song popularized the phrase 'shake it like a Polaroid picture' in popular culture, and the Polaroid Corporation used the song to revitalize the public's perception of its products.
