No Scrubs Lyrics
And is also known as a buster
Always talkin' about what he wants
And just sits on his broke ass
I don't want your number (no)
I don't want to give you mine and (no)
I don't want to meet you nowhere...

Tonight, I checked and listened to the lyrics of this song.
This song is easy to interpret. This era, every individual has their choice of who they want to be with. The society today is competitive and people want to be successful in life. I don't blame this generation, because life is difficult. It is understandable that they want to be with someone who is employed, has their own car, who has their own place, and who is financially stable. Like the lyrics of this song.
But many are still struggling in life. We have to respect other people and we have to respect their choices and decisions in life. Not a respectful song.
Sorry I pasted my post on the song by Bob Dylan.
That is all I can say.

A scrub is a guy who is clearly not your type, u dont like him, u wouldnt give him a second look. So go away i dont want ur number no and i dont want to give u mine. The lyrics clearly states i quote Im looking like class,and u are looking like thrash.

The song is simply saying that guys are going to try and sweet talk you for sex when they don't really care about you. "Scrub is guy who won't get no love from me", it's kind of for Female empowerment saying you shouldn't let just any guy walk all over you. This has nothing to do with the government and if the guy has money or not.

''No Scrubs'' is a song about the young Lady who doesn't want Guys who are bad at Their basketball game. And She doesn't want Their ''scrubby moves'' that They want to use on Her to pick Her up. She is looking for a good team player that knows how to play the game with care and love.

This set of lyrics is yet another of many, which stem from gov interest group supported corporate record labels which seek to reinforce capitalism social standards by shaming those who have no money or gainful employment. This song is more damaging than the rest however, in that it managed to popularize and normalize a type of female that is now known as a 'gold digger'. True love cannot be found by impressing a female with the size of your wallet, but that is certainly not the 'wisdom' conveyed by the trio of unstable females in this song, and you know they're unstable. Let's not forget about what Lefteye did to that dude's house...and these are the pop icons an entire generation of young females took their social cues from. Let that sink in.

She doesn't want a douchebag for a boyfriend or a hustler.

Scrub obviously is about a dumb butt of a guy. You dummies don't realize that?

its pretty obvious in teh lyrics, they're saying i dont want a run-down, lazy, slacker, butt of a guy. i belive the " no, i dont wanna get your nomber, not i dont wanna give you mine..." is a conversation at perhaps a club, where a trud kind of guy is trying to pick her up, though shes obviously telling him to back off.
