haircut dialogue

I went to Supercuts in Cranston to get my hair cut last week (as is my habit), and as I was getting trimmed Gwen Stefani came on the radio and the room was enveloped in the immortal lyrics:
I heard that you were talking sh...
And you didn't think that I would hear it
People hear you talking like that, getting everybody fired up
So I'm ready to attack, gonna lead the pack
Gonna get a touchdown, gonna take you out
That's right, put your pom-poms down, getting everybody fired up

A few times I've been around that track
So it's not just gonna happen like that
Because I ain't no hollaback girl
I ain't no hollaback girl
And people were sort of grooving to it silently, and then one of the hair stylists said, "What is this song about, anyway?" One of the customers said, authoritatively, "Nothing!" The conversation ended.
