"Growing On Me" as written by Daniel Francis Hawkins, Francis Gilles Poullain-patterson, Edwin James Graham and Justin David Hawkins....
I can't get rid of you
I don't know what to do
I don't even know who is growing on who
'cause everywhere I go you're there
Can't get you out of my hair
Can't pretend that I don't care, it's not fair

I'm being punished for all my offenses
I want to touch you but I'm afraid of the consequences
I want to banish you from whence you came
But you're part of me now
And I've only got myself to blame

You're really growing on me
(or am I growing on you)
You're really growing on me
(or am I growing on you)
Any fool can see

Sleeping in an empty bed
Can't get you off my head
I won't have a life until you're dead
Yes you heard what I said

I want to shake you off but you just won't go
And you're all over me but I don't want anyone to know
That you're attached to me, that's how you've grown
Won't you leave me, leave me, leave me alone

You're really growing on me
(or am I growing on you)
You're really growing on me
(or am I growing on you)
Any fool can see

You're really growing on me
(or am I growing on you)
You're really growing on me
(or am I growing on you)

    General CommentLol it’s not about crabs or warts or anything…..
    i agree it is ambiguous, its filled with innuendo deliberately…
    Justin said this on VH1 – "People have said it's about pubic lice, but that's obviously wrong because pubic lice don't grow on you, do they?” and then when asked what it REALLY means, he said "A sweet lady woman that you will never fully fathom or understand, but you love her so much that after a while it doesn't matter."

    General CommentOilslug is right....

    Contrary to popular belief, and although filled with sexual innuendo, this song is in no way about pubic lice or any sexually transmitted disease. During an interview with the music television station VH1, Justin Hawkins stated: "People have said it's about pubic lice, but that's obviously wrong because pubic lice don't grow on you, do they?" When questioned as to its true meaning Justin said: "A sweet lady woman that you will never fully fathom or understand, but you love her so much that after a while it doesn't matter." (thanks, James - St Albans, England)

    General Commenti think that justin's trying to tell the world that he has head-lice!! just think about it "Can't get you out of my hair", "I wanna banish you from whence you came But you're part of me now", "I won't have a life until you're dead", and "You're really growing on me"
    think about it!!!!!
