How do you describe the p-value unrelated to the hyposises?

What does the P-value mean?

Assuming the [H0 in context] is true, the probability that the [observed statistic - x-bar or p-hat] will take a value as or more extreme than it does is [p-value]. {MAKE SURE TO USE CONTEXT}

With a p value of 0.05 for example, it says that if the null hypothesis is true, the probability that your given data would be at a value that only happens 5% of the time if you take your data from the population with a true null hypothesis.
