Facts:
  • This arrangement was used, note for note, in an episode of Glee aired Jan 24, 2013 and released by Glee on iTunes, without any credit or compensation given to Coulton. It is also highly likely that the audio from Coulton's backing track was also used. (karlap)
  • This was one of the Jonathan Coulton songs featured in the Coverville 500th podcast put up on August 26, 2008. The live show, done in Los Nevas was held on August 15, 2008. (Tim P. Ryan)
  • Coulton's intentionally laid back & really, really white original arrangement of Sir Mix-a-Lot's 1992 hit. (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • Song Lyrics:
    L.A. face with the Oakland booty

    I like big butts and I cannot lie
    You other brothers can't deny
    When a girl walks in with an itty-bitty waist
    And a round thing in your face
    You get sprung, wanna pull up tough
    You notice that butt was stuffed
    Deep in the jeans she's wearing
    I'm hooked and I can't stop staring

    Ooh babe, I wanna get wit'cha
    And take your pretty picture
    My homeboys tried to warn me
    But that butt you got makes me so horny

    Ooh, Rumplesmoothskin
    You say you wanna get in my Benz?
    Well, use me, use me
    'Cause you ain't that average groupie
    I've seen them dancin'
    To hell with romancin'
    She's sweat, wet,
    Got it goin' like a turbo 'Vette

    I'm tired of magazines
    Sayin' flat butts are the thing
    Take the average black man and ask him that
    She gotta pack much back

    So, fellas (yeah) fellas (yeah)
    Has your girlfriend got the butt? (yeah)
    Tell her to shake it, shake it
    Shake that healthy butt

    (L.A. face with the Oakland booty)
    Baby got back
    (Little in the middle)
    Baby got back
    (L.A. face with the Oakland booty)
    Baby got back
    (Little in the middle)
    Baby got back

    I like 'em round and big
    And when I'm throwin' a gig
    I just can't help myself, I'm actin' like an animal
    Now here's my scandal
    I wanna get you home
    And whoa, double-up, whoa whoa
    I ain't talkin' 'bout Playboy
    'Cause silicone parts are made for toys

    I want 'em real thick and juicy
    So find that juicy double
    Jonny C's in trouble
    Beggin' for a piece of that bubble

    So I'm lookin' at rock videos
    Knock-kneed bimbos walkin' like hos
    You can have them bimbos
    I'll keep my women like Flo Jo

    A word to the thick soul sisters, I wanna get with ya
    I won't cuss or hit ya
    But I gotta be straight when I say I wanna
    Till the break of dawn
    Baby got it goin' on
    A lot of simps won't like this song
    'Cause them punks like to hit it and quit it
    And I'd rather stay and play
    'Cause I'm long, and I'm strong
    And I'm down to get the friction on

    So, ladies (yeah) ladies (yeah)
    If you wanna roll in my Mercedes (yeah)
    Then turn around, stick it out
    Even white boys got to shout
    Baby got back

    (L.A. face with the Oakland booty)
    Baby got back
    (Little in the middle)
    Baby got back
    (L.A. face with the Oakland booty)
    Baby got back
    (Little in the middle)
    Baby got back

    (spoken:)
    Actually, when it comes to females,
    Cosmo does not have very much to do at all with my selection.
    I mean, 36-24-36?
    Maybe if she's 5-3

    So your girlfriend rolls a Honda,
    Playin' workout tapes by Fonda
    But Fonda ain't got a motor in the back of her Honda
    My anaconda don't want none
    Unless you have got buns, hon
    You can do side bends or sit-ups,
    But please don't lose that butt

    Some brothers wanna play that "hard" role
    And tell you that the butt ain't gold
    So they toss it and they leave it
    And I pull up quick to retrieve it

    So Cosmo says you're fat
    Well, I ain't down with that
    'Cause your waist is small and your curves are kickin'
    And I'm thinkin' bout stickin'

    To the beanpole dames in the magazines:
    You ain't it, Miss Thing
    Give me a sister; I can't resist her
    Red beans and rice didn't miss her
    Some knucklehead tried to dis
    'Cause his girls are on my list
    He had game but he chose to hit 'em
    And I pull up quick to get wit 'em

    So ladies (yeah) if the butt is round (yeah)
    And you want a triple-X throw down
    Dial 1-900-JONNYC
    And kick them nasty thoughts

    (L.A. face with the Oakland booty)
    Baby got back
    (Little in the middle)
    Baby got back
    (L.A. face with the Oakland booty)
    Baby got back
    (Little in the middle)
    Baby got back

    I knew JoCo put it to different music when I filled out the page. But it's still a parody. I could never decide who to credit. In the old days, Coulton would be credited with a 'unique arrangement' of an existing song (arrangement in this case meaning 'rewriting'), but there's no 'arranged by' on the page so I added one in this instance. Hopefully this will satisfy everyone.

    I actually didn't ask for an 'arrangement' credit when the song pages were redone thinking I would rarely use it. This is one of those rare times.

    Kahn Man is right. It should read music by Jonathan Coulton.

    Sir Mix A Lot Did not Write The Music It Was Jonathan Coulton Who Did It. He Just Kept The Lyrics To It.
