"Girls In Bikinis" is a song by Poppy from her album "Am I A Girl?". It is the ninth track on the album.

Background

Poppy revealed the title of the song with the tracklist to "Am I A Girl?".

Theme

"Girls In Bikinis" doubles as a critique on the over-sexualization and objectification of women in the media as well as an empowerment song celebrating revealing and skimpy clothing. The song uses bikinis as a focal point to represent these topics. The lyrics in the verses describe various articles of clothing that Poppy is wearing, as she dismisses those who believe that she needs to "cover up" or dress differently. In the bridge, Poppy invites men to wear bikinis as well, subverting the double standard that revealing clothing is acceptable for women and unacceptable for men.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
They say take it off, I say keep it on
Bandeau, crop top, boy short, red thong
I see you in my dreams, slow motion movie scenes
Homemade, crochet, dreamy with a low waist
Cheeky, tankini

[Chorus]
Girls in bikinis
Girls in bikinis on roller skates, in outer space
I see girls in bikinis
Girls in bikinis in platform heels, in new hot wheels
Girls in bikinis
Girls in bikinis, ooh-ooh

[Verse 2]
Nylon, spandex, dear Lord, what's next?
Polyester, pin stripe, whet my appetite
Polka dots, see through, put me in a good mood
A-cup, D-cup, give me love, don't cover up
Slow down my Lamborghini for

[Chorus]
Girls in bikinis
Girls in bikinis on roller skates, in outer space
I see girls in bikinis
Girls in bikinis in platform heels, in new hot wheels
Girls in bikinis
Girls in bikinis, ooh-ooh

[Bridge]
I wanna see boys in bikinis too
They'd look good on you

[Chorus]
Girls in bikinis
Girls in bikinis on roller skates, in outer space
I see girls in bikinis
Girls in bikinis in platform heels, in new hot wheels
Girls in bikinis
Girls in bikinis, ooh-ooh
