You've been singing Doja Cat’s "Say So" lyrics wrong this whole time

Doja Cat released 'Say So' back in 2019, and it samples Chic's disco classic 'Good Times'. The music video has just been released and stars the original creator of the dance and TikTok-er, Haley Sharpe.

The music video for Doja Cat's latest track, 'Say So' has just dropped and the internet has lost its sh*t for so many reasons.

Following the controversy that the song sounded a little too familiar, in the video we see Doja doing the incredible TikTok dance that made the song famous - and original creator, Haley Sharpe, even got to join in.

But the biggest misconception yet has to be the lyrics - because it turns out we've all been singing them wrong the whole time.

The 24-year-old is known for her particularly non-PC lyrics, so no one was necessarily wrong to assume that 'Say So' would fall into the same bracket as her other I-feel-like-filth-listening-to-this hits.

But alas, we were. She decided to make the track more chart-friendly than we first thought, so it's time to wipe all filth from your mind and prepare for a cultural reset.

It all started when Doja (real name Amalaratna Dlamini) tweeted the lyrics to the song (she probably knew what we were all thinking, and if you weren't thinking it, congrats, you're a nice person), and everyone went into uproar because erm...that's not we heard.

In the tweet she wrote: "The lyrics to Say So are 'Day to night to morning. Keep with me in the moment. I'd let you had I known it. Why don't you say so? Didn't even notice. No punches left to roll with. You got to keep me focused. You want it? Say so.'"


Admittedly, our own personal shame has been pushed aside, once we got to see what some of the internet thought was being sang...

Don't worry you're not alone, we felt it too.

But it turns out that even streaming services were out of the loop, with users claiming that lyrics website Genius, and Apple Music lyrics were saying the same thing too when it came down to 'hot and moaning'.

It's time we all got our mind out the gutter. And Doja, drop the lyrics first next time...please?
