Music Monday: TLC – No Scrubs

musicmonday

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

The song and video I am sharing today is:

TLC – No Scrubs

Again I’ve decided to treat you guys with a song that for some reason has been stuck in my head all week. I’m not even sure where I heard it the other day but I do remember when it first came out thinking I don’t care what you call ’em I’m right there with you ladies!

Lyrics: 

Oh, oh
A scrub is a guy that thinks he’s fly
And is also known as a busta (busta)
Always talkin’ about what he wants
And just sits on his broke ass
So no, I don’t want your number
No, I don’t want to give you mine and
No, I don’t want to meet you nowhere
No, I don’t want none of your time and
No, I don’t want no scrub
A scrub is a guy that can’t get no love from me
Hangin’ out the passenger side
Of his best friend’s ride
Trying to holla at me
I don’t want no scrub
A scrub is a guy that can’t get no love from me
Hangin’ out the passenger side
Of his best friend’s ride
Trying to holla at me
Well a scrub checkin’ me
But his game is kinda weak
And I know that he cannot approach me
‘Cause I’m looking like class, and he’s looking like trash
Can’t get wit’ a deadbeat ass
So no, I don’t want your number
No, I don’t want to give you mine and
No, I don’t want to meet you nowhere
No, I don’t want none of your time and
No, I don’t want no scrub
A scrub is a guy that can’t get no love from me
Hangin’ out the passenger side
Of his best friend’s ride
Trying to holla at me
I don’t want no scrub
A scrub is a guy that can’t get no love from me
Hangin’ out the passenger side
Of his best friend’s ride
Trying to holla at me
If you don’t have a car and you’re walking
Oh yes son, I’m talking to you
If you live at home with your momma
Oh yes son, I’m talking to you
If you have a shorty that you don’t show love
Oh yes son, I’m talking to you
Wanna get me with no money
Oh no, I don’t want no
No scrub, no scrub
No scrub, no scrub
No, I don’t want no scrub
A scrub is a guy that can’t get no love from me
Hangin’ out the passenger side
Of his best friend’s ride
Trying to holla at me
I don’t want no scrub
A scrub is a guy that can’t get no love from me
Hangin’ out the passenger side
Of his best friend’s ride
Trying to holla at me
See, if you can’t spatially expand my horizon
Then that leaves you in the class with scrubs, never rising
I don’t find it surprising
And if you don’t have the G’s
To please me and bounce me here to the coast of overseas
So, let me give you something to think about
Inundate your mind with intentions to turn you out
Can’t forget the focus on the picture in front of me
You as clear as DVD on digital TV screens
Satisfy my appetite with something spectacular
Check your vernacular, and then I get back to ya
With diamond-like precision
Insatiable is what I envision
Can’t detect acquisition
From your friend’s Expedition
Mr. Big Willy, if you really want to know
Ask Chilli, could I be a silly ho?
Not really
T-Boz and all my senoritas
Are steppin’ on your FILA’s
But you don’t hear me, though
No, I don’t want no scrub
A scrub is a guy that can’t get no love from me
Hangin’ out the passenger side
Of his best friend’s ride
Trying to holla at me
I don’t want no scrub
A scrub is a guy that can’t get no love from me
Hangin’ out the passenger side
Of his best friend’s ride
Trying to holla at me

  1. And now this one is stuck in my head! Great choice Carrie. This song came out when I was a teen and I remember how much my friends and I loved it. Used to sing it to the boys with all the attitude in the world haha not sure we knew what we were singing though. Great throwback!

    • Haha a definite female anthem if there ever was one as I think it doesn’t matter what age you are you can relate to it happening at some point and having that moment of no, I really don’t want to give you my number.
