Acapella Lyrics


Used to be your baby, used to be your lady
Thought you were the perfect lover
All the harmony went fallin' out of key, so
Now you gotta find another
Now you're talkin' crazy, sayin' that you made me
Like I was your Cinderella
You and me are through though, watch me hit it solo
I'mma do it Acapella, yeah
I'mma do it acapella, yeah

Once upon a time, I met the perfect guy
He had that Colgate smile, he had that suit & tie
Mama always said "get a rich boyfriend,
You don't gotta love 'em, girl, you can pretend"
You bet I totes believed her, yeah, every word she said
Thought he was gluten-free, but all that I got was bread
Mama always said "nice guys finish last,
Beat him at his own game, honey, take the cash"

Ooh, and what a lucky girl you will be
But no, he didn't do jack for me
I want a bean with the beanstalk
And if the magic ain't right, time to walk

Used to be your baby, used to be your lady
Thought you were the perfect lover
All the harmony went fallin' out of key, so
Now you gotta find another
Now you're talkin' crazy sayin' that you made me
Like I was your Cinderella
You and me are through though, watch me hit it solo
I'mma do it acapella, yeah
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
I'mma do it acapella, yeah

Out on our first date, he took me gourmet
We hit that Olive Garden, my Little Italy
Daddy always said "let the gentleman pay,
Never ever go Dutch at the buffet"
I saw his bad intention, he didn't wanna talk
He put the saucy on it (Oops!) time to check my watch
Daddy always said "money can't buy class,
You don't wanna get stuck takin' out trash"

Ooh, and yeah I guess it wasn't meant to be
Because he didn't do jack for me
I want a bean with the beanstalk
And if the magic ain't right, time to walk

Used to be your baby, used to be your lady
Thought you were the perfect lover
All the harmony went fallin' out of key, so
Now you gotta find another
Now you're talkin' crazy sayin' that you made me
Like I was your Cinderella
You and me are through though, watch me hit it solo
I'mma do it acapella

Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
I'mma do it acapella
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Watch me do it in falsetta
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Never mind, bring the beat back

Used to be your baby, used to be your lady
Thought you were the perfect lover
All the harmony went fallin' out of key, so
Now you gotta find another
Now you're talkin' crazy sayin' that you made me
Like I was your Cinderella
You and me are through though, watch me hit it solo
I'mma do it acapella
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
I'mma do it acapella, yeah

Acapella
  • The official first single by American Pop duo Karmin, from their debut Pulses album, was penned by group members Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan with Sam Hollander (Big Time Rush's "Big Night," One Direction's "Rock Me") and Boys Like Girls frontman, Martin Johnson. The track was premiered on June 10, 2013 on Z100's Elvis Duran Show and was released on iTunes June 25, 2013.
  • The song is an ode to independence after the narrator realizes that her rich lover is a total dud. The duo flipped the the meaning of a cappella from singing without instruments to "I can do it by myself"' or "I don't need a rich boyfriend."

    "Actually, 90% of the track was done a cappella," Noonan told Billboard magazine. "We went back there and made all kinds of weird sounds and chopped it up and put it in the computer."
  • The video was directed by Matt Stawski and was inspired by '90s music videos that the duo grew up watching. It uses a monochromatic color palette as the Karmin perform choreographed moves, which is something they've never done before on camera: "I actually enjoyed it," Nick Noonan told MTV News regarding his footwork. "To be honest I was a little hesitant in the beginning, I was like, 'I'm sorry, what?' But it wasn't even like someone else was saying it, it was us saying, 'Hey, we want to do this,' but I was still like, 'hey, I'm going to go for it and we're going to do everything and see.' If it looks terrible we've got to be straight up with ourselves though. You don't put a square into a round hole; you know what I'm saying? Is that the right analogy?"
  • Acapella is really spelled "a capella", but that doesn't read well, since it looks like a reference to something called a capella. The term means "without instrumental accompaniment," and comes from an Italian phrase that literally translates to "in the manner of a choir." Kellis released a song of the same title in 2010, and also used the "acapella" spelling.

    The metaphor is apt in this song if the guy is considered the musical accompaniment. Note that "a capella" doesn't mean "solo," however, as a group of singers could perform in that style. Of course, ever since Rihanna's "Umbrella," Pop singers have been seeking "-ella" words, as they sing well and have some intriguing rhymes that can lead a storyline (fella, Cinderella...).
