Popcrush writer Amy Sciarretto stated: "Little Mix let ‘er rip with ‘Stand Down,’ a tough, confident song with more tribal rhythms, while taking copious notes from a page in the Destiny’s Child playbook." [1]

Lyrics

Jesy:
Let me start by telling you something
I think there's one thing you should know
We ain't playin' no games, this ain't no playground
It's time to drop your sticks and stones
'Cause I've been chasing dreams since I took my first leap

Perrie:
And I'm gon' be lil' Bo so contemplate if you're the sheep
And we gon' make a humble pie so egos cut a slice and take a piece, hey

Jade:
So, you see, there's no point in underestimating me, to me
Lock up all your thoughts and throw away the key
No, I don't want to hear it 'cause your, no, it doesn't bother me

Little Mix:
Now I'm done with all your negativity
And I'm gonna let it wash all over me
I'll be stronger then your words, baby, I'm harder
My smile lights up the world, I'm flyin' higher
So stand down (don't wanna hear it)
Back it up now (don't wanna hear it)
Stand down (don't wanna hear it)
Back it up, back it up-up now
Stand down (don't wanna hear it)
Back it up now (don't wanna hear it)
Stand down (don't wanna hear it)
Back it up, back it up-up now

Leigh-Anne:
Come a little bit closer
Let me tell you about a girl you used to know
She ain't waiting for love, no wishful thinking,
She's gonna do it on her own

Jade:
So, you see, there's no point in underestimating me, to me
Lock up all your thoughts and throw away the key
No, I don't want to hear it 'cause your, no, it doesn't bother me

Little Mix:
Now I'm done with all your negativity
And I'm gonna let it wash all over me
I'll be stronger then your words, baby, I'm harder
My smile lights up the world, I'm flyin' higher
So stand down (don't wanna hear it)
Back it up now (don't wanna hear it)
Stand down (don't wanna hear it)
Back it up, back it up-up now
Stand down (don't wanna hear it)
Back it up now (don't wanna hear it)
Stand down (don't wanna hear it)
Back it up, back it up-up now

Jesy (Little Mix):
L-ladies, let's break it down
Scuba-da, boba-da, boba-da ba
(Scuba-da, boba-da, boba-da ba)

Perrie (Little Mix):
Scuba-da, baduba-ba, baduba-ba ba
(Scuba-da, baduba-ba, baduba-ba ba)

Leigh-Anne (Little Mix):
Scuba-da, beeb do da bo dap
(Scuba-da, beeb do da bo dap)

Jade and Leigh-Anne:
Scuba-da, baduba-ba, baduba-ba, baduba-ba, baduba-ba, baduba-ba-ba-bo bada, click

Little Mix:
I'm just gonna do me,
Imma do this right (right)
You got nothin' on me,
You're just wastin' you're time (time)
Take a listen to me,
'Cause Imma tell you tonight
Oh, woah, woah

Now I'm done with all your negativity
And I'm gonna let it wash all over me
I'll be stronger then your words, baby, I'm harder
My smile lights up the world, I'm flyin' higher
So stand down (don't wanna hear it)
Back it up now (don't wanna hear it)
Stand down (don't wanna hear it)
Back it up, back it up-up now
Stand down (don't wanna hear it)
Back it up now (don't wanna hear it)
Stand down (Don't wanna hear it)
Back it up, back it up-up now
