Laura Plus Books gave the song a mixed review, saying it was "not the best song, not even mind-blowing but it was good. Definitely a song that I will listen to often."

Christina Lee of Idolator gave a positive review, saying "the seismic “Me And My Girls” would make for the perfect moment to break out the confetti and fireworks".

TheGrapeJuice.net also gave a positive review, saying "the song is enough to turn ‘Harmony’ critics into hardcore fans… Pop perfection to say the least.

Jessica Rawden of PopBlend gave a positive review, stating that "The girls still need to work on putting together a more complicated dance routine, but overall, the group's second single projects exactly the image the girls have been hoping to stand for all along, at least sans the stupid bow Camila Cabello used to wear".

Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Camila with Fifth Harmony:
And we play our favorite songs
And we scream out all night long
Like ooooh oh
When it’s just me and my girls

Camila:
All the lights turn them off
It’s too loud in here to talk
I don’t understand a word you say

Normani:
Gotta sleep but instead
Karaoke on the bed
Taking duck face selfies right and left

Lauren:
We get crazy with it
We get stupid with it
We don’t care if people stare when we wobble with it

Ally:
We get diva on it
We get Queen B on it, yeah!
We get Britney, Demi, One Direction, Bieber on it

Camila with Fifth Harmony:
And we play our favorite songs
And we scream out all night long
Like ooooh oh
When it’s just me and my girls

And we dance like no one’s watching

There’s nowhere I’d rather be
Than to have you crazy freaks with me

You make me feel like I'm living a teenage dream
The way you turn me on, I can't sleep
Let's run away and don't ever look back
Don't ever look back

My heart stops when you look at me
Just one touch, now baby I believe
This is real, so take a chance
And don't ever look back, don't ever look back

And we play our favorite songs
And we scream out all night long
Like ooooh oh
When it’s just me and my girls

And we dance like no one’s watching
We crack up… booty popping like ooooh ooh
When it’s just me and my girls
