"SOS" as written by Christopher Todd Bailey, Rick Gadzig, Kenny Hallman, Rick Nemes and Steve Russell....
La la la, la la la, la la la la la, oh
You know I never felt like this before
La la la, la la la, la la la la la, oh
This feels like so unreal

I'm obsessive when just one thought of you comes up
I'm aggressive just one thought of closing up
You got me stressing, incessantly pressing the issue
Da very moment gone you know I miss you
I'm the question, and you're of course the answer
Just hold me close, boy, 'cause I'm your tiny dancer
You make me shaken up, never mistaken
But I can't control myself, got me calling out for help

S.O.S., please someone help me
It's not healthy for me to feel this
Y.O.U. are making this hard
I can't take it, see it don't feel right
S.O.S. please someone help me
It's not healthy for me to feel this
Y.O.U. are making this hard
You got me tossin' and turnin', can't sleep at night

This time, please someone come and rescue me
'Cause you on my mind, got me losing it
I'm lost, you got me lookin' for the rest of me
Just testing me, but still I'm losing it
This time, please someone come and rescue me
'Cause you on my mind, got me losing it
I'm lost, you got me looking for the rest of me
Got the best of me, so now I'm losing it

Just your presence, and I second guess my sanity
Yes, it's a lesson, and it's based on my vanity
My tummy's up in knots, as I see you, I get so hot
Common sense is out the door, can't seem to find a lot
Take a minute, you know inside you feel it right
Take me home, I put desire in your arms tonight
I'm out with you, ya got me head over heels
Boy, you keep me hanging on, the way you make me feel

S.O.S., please someone help me
It's not healthy for me to feel this
Y.O.U. are making this hard
You got me tossin' and turnin', can't sleep at night

This time, please someone come and rescue me
'Cause you on my mind, got me losing it
I'm lost, you got me lookin' for the rest of me
Just testing me, but still I'm losing it
This time, please someone come and rescue me
'Cause you on my mind, got me losing it
I'm lost, you got me looking for the rest of me
Got the best of me, so now I'm losing it

Boy, you know you got me feeling open
And, boy, your love's enough with words unspoken
I said, boy; I'm telling you, you got me open
I don't know what to do, it's true
I'm going crazy over you, I'm begging

S.O.S., please someone help me
It's not healthy for me to feel this
Y.O.U. are making this hard
You got me tossin' and turnin', can't sleep at night

This time, please someone come and rescue me
'Cause you on my mind, got me losing it
I'm lost, you got me lookin' for the rest of me
Just testing me, but still I'm losing it
This time, please someone come and rescue me
'Cause you on my mind, got me losing it
I'm lost, you got me looking for the rest of me
Got the best of me, so now I'm losing it

La la la, la la la, la la, oh
Oh oh, la la la, la la la, la la, oh oh

    General CommentI just can't get this song out my head!!! The Tainted Love sample by Soft Cell was a good choice.

    I'm obsessive when just one thought of you comes up!

    General CommentIts a good song, yes the music is from Soft Cells "tainted love".
    Its sounds like it is more a counter song to soft cell. that it is from the girls side
    of the story. Tainted love is of the guys perspective who is being chased.


    Rihanna is the girl doing the chasing.

    General CommentThis a BAD tune. The beat woz taken from Soft Cells "Tainted Love" but mixed a bit 2 make it more hip, which works well. Rhianna looks soooooooooooooooooo good in the video & in general anywayz. Not sure what S.O.S stands 4 thou, but the tune rocks & so does Rhianna.

    General CommentI've heard that it could also be "Save Our Ship". But sometimes it is said that it has no actual meaning, because the signaling is very easy with the letter s.o.s. I don't know :P
