"I Get Wet" as written by and Andrew F. Wilkes-krier....
You watch what I say,
(Watch what I Say),
Watch what I do.
Because I really don't care,
I really don't care,
I know you're trying to get somewhere.
You watch what you say,
(Watch what I do),
I'm gonna get on you.
I really don't care,
I really don't care,
You're never gonna go nowhere.

[Chorus]

(I Get Wet)
I Get Wet when the party is dying
I Get Wet without even trying.
I Get Wet [x8]
I Get Wet whenever you trying
I Get Wet when I know that you're dying.
I Get Wet [x8]

You're making wars,
You're breaking doors,
And now you're on the floor.
I really don't care,
I really don't care.
I know you're tryin' to get somewhere.
You watch what I say,
(Watch what I say),
Watch what I do.
Because I really don't care,
I really don't care,
You're never gonna go nowhere.

[Chorus]
(I Get Wet),
I Get Wet when the party is dying
I Get Wet without even trying.
I Get Wet [x8]
I Get Wet when I know that your dying
I Get Wet without even trying
I Get Wet [x8]

I Get Wet when I know that you're dying,
(I Get Wet).
I Get Wet without even trying.
I Get Wet [x9]
I Get Wet whenever you're trying,
(I Get Wet).
I Get Wet when I know that you're Dying.
I Get Wet [x8]

I Get Wet when I know that you're dying,
(I Get Wet).
I Get Wet without even trying.
I Get Wet [x9]
I Get Wet whenever you're trying,
(I Get Wet).
I Get Wet I know that you're Dying.
I Get Wet [x8]

I Get Wet when i'm not even startin'.
I Get Wet without even trying.
I Get Wet [x8]
I Get Wet whenever you try it.
I Get Wet when I know that you're dying.
I Get Wet [x8]
[Repeat 'I Get Wet' where appropriate]

    General Commentthis is definitely my favorite Andrew W.k. song. It's a bombardment of energy. The SNL performance of this song was amazing as well.

    General CommentI listen to this whenever i need energy or whenever I just feel like letting loose and going insane. It's probably the best AWK song I've ever heard.

    General CommentThis should have been the last track on the album cz "dont stop living in the red" is not only crap but also crap. THIS right here is thee best song, is has the most energy, the most passion and also has the best chant. I Get Wet, i mean that says it all really, you could live by this song. I dont care what the critics say, ad i dont care if all the songs sound th same, Andrew WK IS the future of rock. Good sir, i am in your debt...

    Song MeaningFrom an NYRock interview with Andrew:

    "[W]et means soaking wet afterwards, after a concert. It just happens. It's a theory, a tactile, real way for me to go throughout a gig, like an effort. To get that wet, sweaty, to exert that much, to push that much water out of my body, [it means] that I did a good job. It's all just about not holding back and not restraining oneself. I always say, Don't stand on the edge of the water if you can dive in."

    So the singer doesn't want to be like the person he's singing to. He doesn't want to watch what other people do, he doesn't care what other people think about him. He also seems to be telling the person he's singing to that watching what other people do, caring about them that much, is ultimately what's holding them back, and if they stop doing that, they too can "get wet".

    That's what I take from it.

    Song MeaningThis song is difficult to understand. Face value it seems like it's just nonsense about getting pumped up. But you can try to look deeper into it and find/create another meaning. That's what I'll do because this would be a short post otherwise and I know Andrew is a smart/complex lad.

    First off, I'm going to make the assumption that Andrew W.K. is singing from the POV of a girl. There's no clear evidence of that assumption other than the phrase "I get wet," and the female backing vocals. In my opinion, the song is seemingly about a girl that is kind of bored with her life (as far as relationships go). I'm going to guess she is hot, and she is surround by at least one dude trying to impress her (You're making wars, you're breaking doors") and fuck her.

    "You watch what I say, what what I do, Because I really don't care, I really don't care, I know you're trying to get somewhere."

    She seems to understand the dude's intentions and she seems bored. But she still has sex with him even though she realizes he is a loser and isn't going to do much with his life:

    "I'm still going to get on you, I really don't care, I really don't, I know you're never going to go nowhere."

    However, that section could also mean she is being a bitch (for lack of a better term), but she knows he won't leave her so she doesn't care. It's definitely open for interpretation. But I think my first deciphering makes sense when combined with the chorus.

    She seems bored, but it also seems she gets horny really easily. She gets wet without even trying, and she gets wet when she knows here male counterpart is dying or perhaps desperate for her sex.

    That's my interpretation, however it could just be a nonsense song about him getting amped, and "I Get Wet" might mean something other than female ejaculation. But I think this isn't the only time Andrew goes to the POV of a female. I think the same thing happens in his song "One Brother" but again that might be a wrong interpretation too.

    Either way, I think both songs are excellent and I can listen to I Get Wet on a loop and feel awesome.
