Critical Reception

Lyrics

Little Mix (Jesy):
Steady, are you ready? (Are you ready?)
What's going on? (What's going on?)

Steady, are you ready? (Are you ready?)
What's going on? (What's going on?)

Jesy (Little Mix):
Tell me what you know about me
Welcome to the city where it's sweet
You know I'll be takin' Vita-D
That's why I can't fit up in these jeans

Watch me, you know I like to move that (Move that)
The heat wave make me wanna cool back (Cool back)
Hear them sayin' "Baby, bring the bounce back" (Bring the bounce back)
You gon' make me have to bring the bounce back (Bring the bounce back)

Jade:
Hey, now, say
Say who gon' say in my way
Come right, alright, baby
Say who gon' say in my way, way

Little Mix:
However do you want me?
However do you need me?
However do you want me?
However do you need me?

However do you want me? (Bring the bounce back, bring the, bring the bounce back)
However do you need me? (Bring the bounce back, bring the, bring the bounce back)
However do you want me? (Bring the bounce back, bring the, bring the bounce back)
However do you need me?

Perrie:
He say I'm the girl up in his dreams
Hot boy, better give me what I need

Leigh-Anne:
Wear me on his body like a throwback

Jade:
And he better not move when I throw it back

Leigh-Anne:
Baby, keep me wetter than a bayou
If you don't, I'ma walk right by you

Little Mix (Jade and Leigh-Anne):
(Baby) Touch me, tease me, keep it easy

Perrie:
Hey, now, say
Say who gon' say in my way
Come right, alright, baby
Say who gon' say in my way, way

Little Mix:
However do you want me?
However do you need me?
However do you want me?
However do you need me? (Perrie: However)

However do you want me? (Bring the bounce back, bring the, bring the bounce back)
However do you need me? (Bring the bounce back, bring the, bring the bounce back)
However do you want me? (Bring the bounce back, bring the, bring the bounce back)
However do you need me? (Bring the bounce back, bring the, bring the bounce back)

Leigh-Anne:
Hey, now, say
Say who gon' say in my way
Come right, alright, baby
Say who gon' say in my way, way

Little Mix:
However do you want me? (Bring the bounce back, bring the, bring the bounce back)
However do you need me? (Bring the bounce back, bring the, bring the bounce back)
However do you want me? (Bring the bounce back, bring the, bring the bounce back)
However do you need me? (Perrie: However) (Bring the bounce back, bring the, bring the bounce back)

However do you want me? (Bring the bounce back, bring the, bring the bounce back)
However do you need me? (Bring the bounce back, bring the, bring the bounce back)
However do you want me? (Bring the bounce back, bring the, bring the bounce back)
