Okay, baby.
What'll it be?
I asked my friends and they all agreed
you're exactly the kind of trouble that I need.

I've got songs that give,
I've got songs that prove,
songs I use when I want to seduce.
And I want to seduce you.
Why won't you let me?

I want to get you
so get gotten.
I won't stop 'till I get to the bottom.
I wanna get you
so get gotten.

I got big big dreams
in a small, small world.
And I'm using God to pick up girls
and I'm willing to put it all on the line.

I got words that destroy,
words that build.
I use words and I feel no guilt about it.
I got words that go bump in the night.

It's no secret that I've fallen
and I won't stop 'till I get to the bottom.
It's no secret that I've fallen.

'Cause first you're ripe
and then you're rotten.
Don't stop 'till you get to the bottom.
First you're ripe
and then rotten.

Once I knew
but I've forgotten.
I find out when I get to the bottom.
Once I knew
but I've forgotten

I wanna get you
so get gotten.
I won't stop 'till I get to the bottom.
I wanna get you
so get gotten.

    General CommentI've always thought that the guitar in this song is kind of unsettling; like a lurking, haunted instrument. Although this is a beautiful song, I think it may be about a man lusting for a woman, maybe even stalking her. He thinks much of his abilities to use words and actions to attract women. The lines "first you're ripe, and then you're rotten" show that he could change his mind about the person anytime, and that he has the power to make that decision.
