"Watching You" as written by Berton L. Averre, Douglas Fieger, Melinda Jean Appleby and Jamie Graham Appleby....
Take me downtown
It's where the people rock
Three hundred sixty-five ?
'Cause we never stop

Take me downtown
'Cause people's runnin' wild
See how we kick it
In a brand new style

Take me downtown
It's where I wanna go
Everyone I know
Is going to my show

Take me downtown
Where the city hums
Then get your head numb
To the beat of the drums, 'cause

[Chorus]
I see you watching me watching you
And now you see just where you gotta be
I see you watching me watching you
And now you see just where you gotta be

Take me downtown
'Cause baby wants to rock
I need a little edge
With my electro (?) pop

Take me downtown
So everybody sees
I know my moves
Like by A-B-C's

Take me downtown
It's time we made it right
This show ain't going nowhere
We'll just party all night

Take me downtown
Where the city hums
Then get your head numb
To the beat of the drums

[Chorus]

Baby rock, never stop
Round and round the clock

Lover's rock, give it up
Never, never stop

Baby rock, get on top
Take it, take it all

I'm not the kind of girl
Who's scared of you at all, 'cause

I see you watching me watching you
I see you watching me watching ? Rock!

[Chorus]

    General CommentAwesome song, love the use of The Knack's "My Sharona" riffs. Nat Bass is gorgeous in the video; her curly hair matches Cameron McGlinchey's too! (Nat's bf & RT drummer) ^^.

    According to James Ash, the song is about being the centre of attention; going out to party and having a great time and having everything revolve around you. :]

    love the Rogues!

    General CommentI don't give a crap what this song means - any possible meaning would have to be as inane and worthless as the music that conveys it. you're not paying homage to influential bands (not that the knack can be described as influential beyond 'my sharona') by stealing their riffs. this isn't like giving a cheeky nod towards an influence, this is effectively admitting that you are a worthless songwriter who cannot produce anything original or worthwhile. so you steal one of the most recognisable riffs in rock and pretend it's some sort of accetpable 'sampling' or such. this promoter's dream sucks so bad, and i look forward to their being speedily condemned to a future of appearances at outer suburban shopping centres, possibly as an opening act for big brother evictees.

    and the superjesus sucked as well.

    General Commenti liked voodoo child. but i cannot stand this. natalie has a good voice when shes doing the 'christina aguilera' esque growly singing like on voodoo child "so here it comes the sound of drums'. not the shreiky talking bit in this.
    Meaning: bout having fun and doing what you want?!
