Meghan Trainor – No Excuses Lyrics

[Intro]
Woo!
Huh!

[Verse 1]
What you sippin’ on that got you talking crazy?
Lookin’ at me sideways, always coming at me
Why you, why you acting hard when you just a baby?
Boy, I keep it real with you, but you trying to play me

[Pre-Chorus]
Have you lost your mind?
Open up your eyes
Huh!

[Chorus]
Someone else
You must’ve confused me, confused me with
Someone else
You must’ve confused me, confused me with
Someone else
There ain’t no excuses, excuses, babe
Someone else
Your mama raised you better than that, huh!

[Verse 2]
What you sippin’ on that got you talking crazy? (Hey!)
Lookin’ at me sideways (Woo!), always coming at me
Why you, why you acting like you never met a lady?
I don’t disrespect you, don’t you disrespect me

[Pre-Chorus]
Have you lost your mind? (lost your mind)
Open up your eyes
Huh!

[Chorus]
Someone else
You must’ve confused me, confused me with
Someone else
You must’ve confused me, confused me with
Someone else
There ain’t no excuses, excuses, babe
Someone else
Your mama raised you better than that, huh!

[Post-Chorus]
Your mama raised you better than that (that’s right)
‘Cause your mama raised you better than that

[Bridge]
Have you lost your mind?
Open up your eyes (your eyes)
Huh!

[Chorus]
Someone else
You must’ve confused me, confused me with (confused me with)
Someone else
You must’ve confused me, confused me with
Someone else
There ain’t no excuses, excuses, babe (no excuses, no, no)
Someone else
Your mama raised you better than that, huh! (how she raise you?)

“No Excuses” was one of the last songs written for the album. While describing the song, Trainor said “it needs to be heard right now — the world could use a song like this. It’s about respect — we need a little more R-E-S-P-E-C-T in the world, especially right now,” and called it the “sassiest” song on its parent album. Sonically, “No Excuses” is a pop song with country influences. It was described as a sexism-blasting empowerment anthem. It features Trainor singing over a “funky, retro” beat. Trainor sings the lyrics, “What you sipping on that got you talking crazy? Looking at me sideways, always coming at me,” over an incandescent beat. According to Idolator writer Mike Nied, the song is a confident take-down of a disrespectful suitor, that has “fiery” production and playful lyrics and Trainor sounds “right at home” on it.

Music video

The song’s music video, directed by Colin Tilley, premiered on the same day as the song’s release, which Trainor had previously teased on her Instagram account along with a short behind the scenes look at it. The video features visual effects showing the singer with two “carbon copies” of herself. The video features looks inspired by the ’80s, including Trainor donning a denim jacket and another one that looks like a cheerleader outfit. Patrick Hosken of MTV News noted that the looks “belong in a mall-pop video from 1987.”

An official choreography video for “No Excuses” was released in collaboration with Zumba, on March 5, 2018. It was directed by Tim Milgram. The visual features a “fun, easy” and empowering routine. It made Trainor the first recording artist to star in an official Zumba choreography video. Describing the initiative, the singer stated “I always hear my music playing in Zumba classes when I’m at the gym so I thought—let’s reach out to Zumba and create something special for ‘No Excuses,’ We both believe in empowerment! I want this choreography to empower everyone out there to get on their feet, and I want them to think about respect and sassiness and loving yourself.” The VP of marketing for Zumba said, “Zumba has always been focused on inspiring others to feel empowered and confident, and this is something we hear in all of Meghan’s music that makes her the ideal partner for us.”
