Competition is a song by Little Mix and appears as the sixth track on their second album, Salute.

Critical Reception

Popcrush writer Amy Sciarretto stated: "More late ’90s/early ’00s hip-pop a la Destiny’s Child on ‘Competition.’ This sounds like Little Mix’s version of ‘Survivor.’ We sorta love how they are embracing the ’90s and how they build escalating harmonies that explode in the choruses of this song about being confident and unstoppable. #GirlPower." [1]

Lyrics

Jesy (Jade, Perrie and Leigh Anne):
Yeah, you're such a gentleman (Ah ah)
You always open doors for me (Ah ah)
But you see us kind of different (Ah ah)
It's like you always have to be .......

The first one to open his mouth (His mouth)
The last one to throw in the towel (The towel)
It's time to show your self out (Ah ah)

Jesy and Jade (Perrie and Leigh Anne):
Boy you're trying
Just a little bit too hard
I thought I told you when we met (Ah ah)
That I like you from who you are (Ah ah)
But I treat you like an argument

Jesy (Jade, Perrie and Leigh Anne):
I don't need to speak up my mind (My mind)
I'm too grown, I'm taking my time (My time)
I'm sick of hearing you rhyme (Ah ah)
You're some baby

Leigh-Anne:
You don't have to come first
Second is okay 'cause you ain't ever beatin' me

All:
I say it once
You say it twice
You know I like a little competition from time to time

You think I'm wrong
I know I'm right
You know this ain't about a competition

I like a man with ambition
But when you gonna know it's time to let go
'Cause I think I'm about to lose my mind

Perrie (Jesy, Jade and Leigh Anne):
Tell me does it scare you? (Ah ah)
That I'm living my dream (Ah ah)
No I don't mean to hurt you (Ah ah)
But you make me wanna scre-e-eam

You smile from grinding your teeth (Your teeth)
You clap by stomping your feet (Your feet)
You act about seventeen (Ah ah)
I'm so tired

Jade:
You don't have to come first
Second is okay 'cause you ain't ever beatin' me

All (Jade):
I say it once
You say it twice
You know I like a little competition from time to time

You think I'm wrong (Oooh)
I know I'm right (Right)
You know this ain't about a competition

I like a man with ambition
But when you gonna know it's time to let go
'Cause I think I'm about to lose my mind

Perrie:
I can do it better
You know I can do it better

Jade:
Why you try to rule?
What is it with you?
Always thinking

Jade and Perrie:
I can do it better
You know I can do it better

Jade:
Baby I can't stand
Always argument
Why you wanna fight?

All:
Why you wanna fight?
Why you always fight?
You ain't always right
I can do it better every day and every night
I can do it better every day and every night

All (Jade):
I say it once (Say it once)
You say it twice
You know I like a little competition from time to time

(Ohhhhh oh)You think I'm wrong (Oooh)
But I know I'm right (Heyea)
You know this ain't about a competition (Perrie: Competition, babe)

All (Perrie):
I like a man with ambition (Ambition, babe)
But when you gonna know (Hey) it's time to let go (Hey)
(Yeeaahh) 'Cause I think I'm about to lose my mind

Jade:
My mind
