8 Britney Lyrics That Describe College

Collegiettes, our favorite Princess of Pop has done it (again)! Since we can’t get enough of how fabulous she is, here are 8 times Britney’s lyrics perfectly depicted college life!



1) “Oops I did it Again…”

Whether it’s the FWB that you’ve been trying to cut off or you forgot about that exam you needed to study for… we all it do it, again and again.


2) She’s so lucky, she’s a star, But she cry, cry, cries in her lonely heart”

That girl you bond with in your morning class who seems to have it all… she almost seems perfect, then she gets borderline tears while sipping her caramel macchiato because her boy-thang didn’t send her a good morning text. Maybe not so lucky after all…


3) Why don’t they just let me live? I don’t need permission, make my own decisions, that’s my prerogative”

When Mom and Dad call and all you can say is “I’m a grown up now” though in reality all you want is your Dad to pick you up, your mom to stroke your hair saying it’ll be okay while you scarf down a bowl of ice cream. Britney understands.


4)”I used to go with the flow, didn’t really care ’bout me, you might think that I can’t take it, but you’re wrong”

Remember in high school when you stressed yourself out about ridiculous things? We all did it, but it doesn’t matter in college. The moment you go home and run into someone you didn’t like in high school, you realize how much you’ve matured since entering young adulthood. You’re awesome and nobody got time for haters — Britney knows.


5) “BOYS”



6) “Work Bitch”

College is all about dedication. Whether it’s to prevent the freshman 15 or to become President someday, Britney told you like it is — you’ve got to Work B*tch.


7) “I’ve just begun having my fun, yeah, Inside me there’s something I found,I wanna shop around, I just begun, don’t wanna settle down

College is about having fun and meeting new people; no need to sit down and settle with one person when you have an entire university of students that have a chance to get to know you!


8) “Let me Break the Ice”

When you find that guy at the fraternity party who catches your eye, own this moment and strut your stuff! Britney believes in you!
