Lauren Alaina's 'Ladies In The '90s' Praises Shania Twain, Britney Spears

posted by Katrina Nattress - 

Over the summer, Walker Hayes paid tribute to the country greats of decades past with his single "90's Country" and on Friday (October 5), Lauren Alaina dropped a tribute to the same decade, praising all the strong female voices that molded her sound, in "Ladies In The '90s."

Like Hayes' anthemic track, the rising star makes plenty of country references, praising the likes of Deana Carter, Shania Twain, Faith Hill, Reba McEntire, and the Dixie Chicks; however, she also gives props to the woman pop stars of the era as well. The song gives nods to Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, TLC, Destiny's Child, Madonna, Spice Girls, and Alanis Morissette. Listen to the song below, then check out the lyrics and see if you can catch all the references.

Lauren Alaina — "Ladies In The '90s" Lyrics

[Verse 1]

I was born in '94

Daddy drove a beat up Ford

Mama made it run on love and music

The backseat’s where I started singing

All the songs that got me dreaming

I'd scream "turn it up," and then I'd lose it

[Pre-Chorus]

I was raised on radio waves

Where the ladies dominated

Sometimes I close my eyes and just replay it[

Chorus]

I just wanna feel like ladies in the '90s

Turn the dial and find me some Strawberry Wine

So I can sing all night long, acting like I'm Britney

Come on baby, hit me just one more time, hey

Man, I feel like a woman

I can feel you breathe when you say my name

Hey, I don't want no scrubs

Need a cowboy to take me away

I wanna feel like ladies in the '90s

Ladies in the '90s, hey hey hey

[Verse 2]

Diva in the living room

Mama's heels on after school

Learning all my moves on MTV

They weren't afraid to make a statement

That's what I call entertainment

All those women paved the way for me

[Pre-Chorus]

Yeah, southern twang

Teaser bangs

I was matching all their lipstick

Close my eyes all the time

I wish I could relive it, yeah yeah

[Chorus]

I just wanna feel like ladies in the '90s

Turn the dial and find me some Strawberry Wine

So I can sing all night long, acting like I’m Britney

Come on baby, hit me just one more time

Hey, man I feel like a woman

I can feel you breathe when you say my name

Hey, I don't want no scrubs

Need a cowboy to take me away

I wanna feel like ladies in the '90s (Let's go, girls)

Ladies in the '90s, hey hey hey

[Bridge]

Wearing leopard leotards

Signing about broken hearts

Moving on in leather pants so shiny

Females were unstoppable

Can't say that’s impossible

My heart will always be stuck in the '90s, yeah

[Chorus]

I just wanna feel like ladies in the '90s

Turn the dial and find me some Strawberry Wine

So I can sing all night long, acting like I'm Britney

Come on baby, hit me just one more time, hey

Here's your one chance, Fancy

Genie in a bottle devote

I'll tell you what I want, what I really really want

You oughta know

I wanna feel like ladies in the '90s

Ladies in the '90s, hey hey he

[Outro]

I wanna feel like ladies in the '90s

Ladies in the '90s, hey hey hey
