I'm Old

What is a Hollaback Girl, and why doesn't Gwen Stefani want to be one?

I'm not positive but I get the idea that it is a bootycall type thing. As in a female you can call when you want to get some.

I was thinking maybe it was something like "holler back" - as in, they are talking trash about her but she isn't going to do the same thing, e.g. "holler" back.

Never actually heard the term before Gwen Stefani sang about it, but from what I've gathered, Wickld seems to be on the right track. Thought I have no idea why she likes to spell the word "bananas" during the song...

WickId is much younger than me, so I figured she was probably right...now I have confirmation from an "independent third party" - lol

A hollerback girl is one that is a booty call and will jump on (meaning to get with) anyone that hollas at her.

I was trying to find the lyrics on the 'net to figure this out but am not enough of a tech geek to scroll thru a gazillion sites-does anyone know what the addresses are for any Lyric-download sites that dont charge?

thank you for the lyrics links(they'll come in handy!)but i'm gonna say this-that bloody song makes no sense.How did gwen get DUMBER after marrying a nice middle-class brit boy and moving to england? too silly even for a teenager.
