Fifth Harmony Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Everyday is pay day
Swipe my card, then I do the nae nae
You're talkin' to a lady
I want a Kanye-ye not a Ray J
So that's a no no
I'm a Maybach and you's a Volvo
This convo beat like Dre-e
I already know whatchu tryna say

You say that you a baller and I see you tryna holla
But that ain't how I was brought up
Next
Working for the money 'cause that's what my momma taught me
So yo ass better show me some re-spect

(Boss)
Michelle Obama, purse so heavy gettin' Oprah dollars
(Boss)
Michelle Obama, purse so heavy gettin' Oprah dollars
(Boss)
Michelle Obama, purse so heavy gettin' Oprah dollars
(Boss)
Michelle Obama, purse so heavy gettin' Oprah dollars

C-O-N-F-I-D-E-N-T
That's me, I'm confident
Don't want yo compliments
Use common sense
I'm on my Michelle Obama
Shut your mouth
Boy I think you know who run this house
I ain't thirsty for no bae
'Cause I already know watchu tryna say

You say that you a baller and I see you tryna holla
But that ain't how I was brought up
Next
Working for the money 'cause that's what my momma taught me
So yo ass better show me some re-spect

(Boss)
Michelle Obama, purse so heavy gettin' Oprah dollars
(Boss)
Michelle Obama, purse so heavy gettin' Oprah dollars
(Boss)

I pledge allegiance to my independent girls, in here
Ooh baby (yeah)
So if you're with us, come on let me hear you say
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Uh huh, uh huh, hey hey
Uh hu, uh hu, hey hey (Da da la da da, I see you)

You say that you a baller and I see you tryna holla
But that ain't how I was brought up (no)
Next
Working for the money 'cause that's what my momma taught me
So yo ass better show me some re-spect

(Boss)

Overall Meaning

The song "BO$$" by Fifth Harmony is an anthem for confident and independent women who work hard for their money and don't need a man to take care of them. The first verse talks about how every day is payday and how the singer swipes her card and then does the nae nae. She also asserts herself as a lady and states that she wants a Kanye, not a Ray J. The next lines are a warning to a man who is trying to holla at her that she is not interested in him because he doesn't respect her values and work ethic. The chorus then repeats the iconic line: "Michelle Obama, purse so heavy gettin' Oprah dollars", which is a reference to two successful and powerful women who are role models for many young girls.


The second verse starts with the singer proudly declaring her confidence and that she doesn't need anyone's compliments. She then compares herself to Michelle Obama and tells a man who is trying to dominate her to shut his mouth because she knows who runs the house. The chorus then repeats again, followed by a bridge where the singers pledge allegiance to all the independent girls in the room and encourage them to celebrate their independence. Finally, the song ends with a repetition of the chorus.


Overall, "BO$$" is a powerful and empowering song that encourages women to work hard, be confident, and stand up for themselves. It's a great anthem for anyone who wants to feel empowered and confident in themselves.
