Juice
Lizzo Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Mirror, mirror on the wall
Don't say it, 'cause I know I'm cute (ooh, baby)
Louis down to my drawers
LV all on my shoes (ooh, baby)
I be drippin' so much sauce
Got a bitch lookin' like ragú (ooh, baby)
Lit up like a crystal ball
That's cool, baby, so is you
That's how I roll

If I'm shinin', everybody gonna shine (yeah, I'm goals)
I was born like this, don't even gotta try (now you know)
I'm like chardonnay, get better over time (so you know)
Heard you say I'm not the baddest, bitch, you lied

It ain't my fault that I'm out here gettin' loose
Gotta blame it on the Goose
Gotta blame it on my juice, baby
It ain't my fault that I'm out here makin' news
I'm the pudding in the proof
Gotta blame it on my juice
Ya-ya-ee, ya-ya-ee, ya-ya-ee, ya-ya-ee
Blame it on my juice, blame it, blame it on my juice
Ya-ya-ee, ya-ya-ee, ya-ya-ee, ya-ya-ee
Blame it on my juice, blame it, blame it on my juice (ooh, baby)

No, I'm not a snack at all
Look, baby, I'm the whole damn meal (ooh, baby)
David, you ain't bein' slick
Don't dare try to cop a feel (ooh, baby)
The juice ain't worth the squeeze
If the juice don't look like this (like this, like this, like this)
Hold up, nigga, please
Don't make me have to take your bitch (how I roll)

If I'm shinin', everybody gonna shine (yeah, I'm goals)
I was born like this, don't even gotta try (now you know)
I'm like chardonnay, get better over time (so you know)
Heard you say I'm not the baddest, bitch, you lied (you lied)

It ain't my fault that I'm out here gettin' loose
Gotta blame it on the Goose
Gotta blame it on my juice, baby
It ain't my fault that I'm out here makin' news
I'm the pudding in the proof
Gotta blame it on my juice
Ya-ya-ee (ya-ya-ee), ya-ya-ee, ya-ya-ee, ya-ya-ee
Blame it on my juice, blame it, blame it on my juice
Ya-ya-ee (ya-ya-ee), ya-ya-ee, ya-ya-ee, ya-ya-ee
Blame it on my juice, blame it, blame it on my juice (alright)
Ya-ya-ee

Somebody come get this man
I think he got lost in my DMs, what? My DMs, what?
You better come get your man
I think he wanna be way more than friends, what?
More than friends
What you want me to say?

It ain't my fault that I'm out here gettin' loose
Gotta blame it on the Goose
Gotta blame it on my juice, baby
It ain't my fault that I'm out here makin' news
I'm the pudding in the proof (puddin' in the proof)
Gotta blame it on my juice (blame it on my juice)

Overall Meaning

"Juice" is a lively and irreverent song by American singer Lizzo. The opening verse features Lizzo bragging about her appearance, with references to luxury brands like Louis Vuitton and using metaphors like ragú to describe the way she looks. She proclaims that if she shines, everyone else will shine with her because she was born to be a star. Lizzo is confident in her abilities and is not afraid to let everyone know that she's the whole damn meal, not just a snack, indicating she's a complete package.


In the chorus, she declares that she should be credited for the attention she's receiving, blaming her "juice," and not external factors like alcohol, for her confidence and success. She reminds listeners that it's not her fault that she's getting loose and making news, she's just the pudding in the proof. The second verse features Lizzo cautioning men who attempt to make advances. She warns that if they want to get with her, it better be for real, and she won't settle for anything less. The song ends with Lizzo challenging doubters and non-believers, urging them to blame her "juice" for her success and talent.


Overall, the song is an empowering anthem that encourages listeners to own their confidence and success, rather than attributing it to external factors.
