OPINION

A very wiser decision considering the current climate to enter a song that empowers women. I LOVE it and it is one of my favourites! Netta is a brilliant mashup of Beth Ditto and Nikki Minaj and is super talented! I can’t wait to see this being performed live! LOVE IT!

PREDICTION

This is undoubtedly going to qualify and will absolutely finish in the Top 5. In fact I could even go as far as saying – see you in Israel in 2019!

LYRICS

Ree, ouch, hey, hm, la

Look at me, I’m a beautiful creature
I don’t care about your modern time preacher
Welcome boys to my show, I will teach ya
Drum drum ah ooh, drum drum ah ooh

Hey, I think you forgot how to play
My teddy bear’s running away
The Barbie got something to say, hey

My Simon Says leave me alone
I’m taking my Pikachu home
You’re stupid just like your smartphone

Wonder Woman don’t you ever forget
You’re divine and he’s about to regret
He’s a bucka-mhm-buck-buck-buck-mhm boy
Bucka-mhm-buck-buck-buck
I’m not your bucka-mhm-buck-mhm-buck-mhm

I’m not your toy (Not your toy)
You stupid boy (Stupid boy)
I’ll take you down now, make you watch
We’re dancing with my dolls on the motha-bucka beat
Not your toy (Cululoo, cululoo, cululoo cululoo)

Ah ah, ah ah, ani lo buba
Ah ah, ah ah, ani lo buba

(Cululoo, cululoo) Wedding bells ringing
(Cululoo, cululoo) Money men bling-bling
I don’t care about your Stefa, baby
Drum drum ah ooh, drum drum ah ooh

Wonder Woman don’t you ever forget
You’re divine and he’s about to regret
He’s a bucka-mhm-buck-buck-buck-mhm boy
Bucka-mhm-buck-buck-buck
I’m not your bucka-mhm-buck-mhm-buck-mhm

I’m not your toy (Not your toy)
You stupid boy (Stupid boy)
I’ll take you down now, make you watch
We’re dancing with my dolls on the motha-bucka beat

Not your toy (Not your toy)
You stupid boy (Stupid boy)

I’ll t-t-t-take you now
W-w-w-with me now, boy

(I’m not your toy)
You stupid boy
I’ll take you down now, make you watch me
Dancing with my dolls on the motha-bucka beat

(I’m not your toy) Look at me, I’m a beautiful creature
(You stupid boy) I don’t care about your modern time preacher
(I’m not your toy) Not your toy, not your toy, not your toy, toy
I’m not your toy, not your toy, not your toy, toy
