Rascal Flatts - Payback Lyrics

Front of the line, straight past the bouncer
Lookin' so fine that the band announced ya
Gotcha tight jeans on and your hair done right
All your girlfriends say we throwin' down tonight
Let me guess, somebody done you wrong
And you're lookin' for a way to get your feel good on
Get some pictures on the Instagram and show him what he's missin'
Straight no chaser, girl on a mission

Mmm, baby I could be your payback
Hey, gonna help you get your sway back
Take ya to the dance floor, I'ma lean ya way back
Yeah, I'ma lean ya way back

Gonna have a real good time
Don't worry 'bout your tab, girl, put it on mine
We can show him what he can't have
If you wanna play that game
Yeah, baby I can be your payback

Da da da da da da da da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da da da da da da da da

I bet he's sittin' at home all alone in the dark
Probably textin' like mad, wants to know where you are
'Cause he didn't even know what he had 'til he lost it
Should have known runnin' around was gonna cost him
No way that girl is as pretty as you
I never even seen her but I know that it's true
If he was even half a man he wouldn't have blown it
Thinkin' 'bout it that way feels good don't it

Mmm, baby I could be your payback
Hey, gonna help you get your sway back
Take ya to the dance floor, I'ma lean ya way back
Yeah, I'ma lean ya way back

Gonna have a real good time
Don't worry 'bout your tab, girl, put it on mine
We can show him what he can't have
If you wanna play that game
Yeah, baby I can be your payback

Da da da da da da da
Let me be your payback
Da da da da da da da
Gonna help ya get your sway back
Da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da
He's gonna hate that
I can be your p-p-p-p-payback
I can be your p-p-p-p-payback
I can be your p-p-p-p-payback
I can be your p-p-p-p-payback
Woo yeah, woo, ah yeah

Rascal Flatts Payback Comments
  1. Hasan D. Ahmed

    Only 1.4 “MILION” views !!! This is “UN FAIR”

  2. HIXIS Band

    This is without a doubt the worst song I've ever heard. It is such a crime against contemporary music that I just heard it playing in a store and had to immediately look it up on YouTube and write this. Absolute trashy garbage

  3. Dandan Diqce

    the sound of the banjo at the background

  4. Game Boy

    Why doesn't this song have more attention?

  5. Justin Carroll

    Well, it's better than "Bob That Head." lol

  6. Racheal Wolfe

    My fiance dumped me ln easter he had slept with a 18 and tried getting me back that same day without me knowing he slept with her while i am pregnant with my daughter Hanna he wanna me to go up to his place so i did she was there with her fiance he cheated on me in the 3 week of April while i was there he had sex with her in her fiance car while i was in the kitchen at his place he break my heart bad while i am 30 weeks pregnant with my daughter Hanna and he lied about it and hide it from me never told me he cheated on me not to my face but tells me when i am at my parents in a message on fb that i cheated on u like it hurts knowing the man i love was with her

  32. Michelle Collins

    For all who seem to think this song means she's having sex with him.....not necessarily.  Payback can be just enjoying life without the ass who hurt her...she doesn't have to spread her legs for that.  And don't quote the part about him leaning her way back or whatever...anyone ever heard of "dancing"? LOL

  74. Carmen Sadok

    Men will say a hoe sings this, but she is the way you made her and really your opinion dont really count, please sit down.. You have become a non- factor.


    @Jennifer Owens Yeah... Because God knows you women never screw a GUY over, EVER. Give me a friggin break.

    Carmen Sadok

    I agree. There are levels to the game of life. Real women dont cheat, as real men dont cheat. A thot:that hoe over there... can be male or female but we dont classifiey them as real anything

  75. Kacie

    oh you guys have songs for every situation in my life .. love it!!

  76. Samantha Shelton

    My ex decided to get high and cheat on me with a 14 year old child, he's 17, and we tried to work through it, a week later he was back to his old ways so I dumped him and today I found out that he is dating her, needless to say I have a new favorite song!!

    Austin Jurgle

    @Dirty Dan age of consent is 14 here. Just sayin

    Right_Back_ Atcha

    Fuck him...


    14 is too young for sex in my opinion. I don't care what the law says.  14 is a child.  Leave the children alone.  I would think a 17 year old would be attracted to someone older. 


    @Dirty Dan if you were with your girl back when she was 14, then yeah, you'd be fucking a child, regardless of your age. 

    melissa delaney

    Mine to I know how you feel. My ex boyfriend cheated on me to. And all so all he wanted was money from me also to

  77. Tracy Beeson

    Love this song!!! It is even better live!!!

  95. F M

    Sara Fryar
