"Erotica" as written by and Shep Pettibone Madonna....
Erotica, romance
Erotica, romance
My name is Dita
I'll be your mistress tonight
I'd like to put you in a trance

If I take you from behind
Push myself into your mind
When you least expect it
Will you try and reject it
If I'm in charge and I treat you like a child
Will you let yourself go wild
Let my mouth go where it wants to

Give it up, do as I say
Give it up and let me have my way
I'll give you love, I'll hit you like a truck
I'll give you love, I'll teach you how to

I'd like to put you in a trance, all over
Erotic, erotic, put your hands all over my body
Erotic, erotic, put your hands all over my body
Erotic, erotic, put your hands all over my body
Erotic, erotic

Once you put your hand in the flame
You can never be the same
There's a certain satisfaction
In a little bit of pain
I can see you understand
I can tell that you're the same
If you're afraid, well rise above
I only hurt the ones I love

Give it up, do as I say
Give it up and let me have my way
I'll give you love, I'll hit you like a truck
I'll give you love, I'll teach you how to

I'd like to put you in a trance, all over
Erotic, erotic, put your hands all over my body
Erotic, erotic, put your hands all over my body
Erotic, erotic, put your hands all over my body
Erotic, erotic

Erotica, romance
I'd like to put you in a trance
Erotica, romance
Put your hands all over my body

I don't think you know what pain is
I don't think you've gone that way
I could bring you so much pleasure
I'll come to you when you say
I know you want me
I'm not gonna hurt you
I'm not gonna hurt you, just close your eyes

Erotic, erotic
Erotic, erotic (just close your eyes)
Erotic, erotic
Erotic
Put your hands all over my body
All over me, all over me

Erotica, (give it up, give it up) romance
I'd like to put you in a trance
Erotica, (give it up, give it up) romance
I like to do a different kind of
Erotica, (give it up, give it up) romance
I'd like to put you in a trance
Erotica, romance
Put your hands all over my body

Only the one that hurts you can make you feel better
Only the one that inflicts pain can take it away

Erotica

    MemoryTo understand Erotica/You Thrill Me one needs to get the very heart of Madonna's existence. In this sad and heartbreaking concerto Ciccone/Peron/Simpson, good ol' Madge is achingly crying out for Love not lusting after Sex. In Tears of Wet Sadness, Lady Madonna cries out "I Love You and I would change a thing in spite of all the pain love can bring/What can I do/I'm so in love with you!/You Thrill Me!/Erotic, erotic/Put your hands all over my body!" Sean Penn and Guy Ritchie are two men who irrevocably changed her life. Not only that, all of us who unconditionally love Madonna-myself included-have changed her life. The good thing about the erotic/spiritual/romance balance act is that Madonna is blending all three Detroit qualities as an Act of Love and a work of Art with a Capital A. In that sense, Erotica/You Thrill Me could as well be Madonna's most important song of her American Life. Reviled then, Revered now-Erotica/You Thrill Me. What a difference 20 years make!

    General CommentThis is typical Madonna--the woman loves to push boundaries and create controversy. And she does it well.

    As for the song meaning, I feel it's pretty self-explanatory.

    General CommentThe song, typically it is not a sex song, it is a romantic song she claims. But the video, she has a edit version but they refused to play it.

    General CommentSounds more like a sex song to me! It's okey but gets boring after a while. Madonna's raspy spoken solo is eerie though.
