"Checkin It Out" as written by Ray Hedges, Nigel Butler, Gary Anthony Osborne and Christopher James Hardman....
She took a ride to take a look at me,
Guess you could say Im likin' what I see,
And though I know I cant be sure of her,
I'd kinda like to see some more of her.

This is my golden opportunity,
To take a cherry from her apple tree-tree-tree,
Yeah, she's a little on the crazy side,
But -ow! she could have me if she really tried.


Well Im in a sweat about it,
I cant forget about it,Wo-oh-oh-oh-oah
Im kinda sad about it,
I cant forget about it.

ch- ch- ch- Checkin it out
Just taking my chances
ch- ch- ch- Checkin it out
ch- ch- ch- Chasin the answers
ch- ch- ch- Checkin it out,
Just a-thinkin it over,
'cause I'm just checkin it out whats shakin in my face.


I think its time to make a start with her,
Its more the body than the heart of her,
Her reputation is a little raw,
The kind that keeps you comin back for mo-o-ore.


Well Im in a sweat about it,
I cant forget about it, Wo-oh-oh-oh-oah
Im kinda sad about it,
I cant forget about it.

ch- ch- ch- Checkin it out
Just taking my chances
ch- ch- ch- Checkin it out
ch- ch- ch- Chasin the answers
ch- ch- ch- Checkin it out,
Just a-thinkin it over,
'cause I'm just checkin it out whats shakin in my face.

Guitar! -ow!
Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight!
Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight!
(unknown jibberish)
Alright! alright!


ch- ch- ch- Checkin it out
Just taking my chances
ch- ch- ch- Checkin it out
ch- ch- ch- Chasin the answers
ch- ch- ch- Checkin it out,
Just a-thinkin it over, (check check check checkin)
'cause I'm just checkin it out whats shakin in my face.

'Cause I'm just checkin it out,
Like it was never a doubt,
'Cause I'm just checkin it out,
Whats shakin in my face.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of a terrier humping your leg.

    And for a long time I thought this was sung by a woman.

    But apart from that it's not a bad song.

    General CommentI saw this little guy on that rock school show thingy, he was so cute and energetic and i loved how he used his voice, and when i heard he had a single i just had to listen to it! Its a good song and it suits him but the instrumentals lack a bit of substance like the guitar part at the beginning didnt relly sound that good but the chords were cool sa ya ... i cant wait until another song of his comes out hey wats the name of the ong he sung on the rock school show?

    General CommentWhen I read your reply, white stone, I came to only one realistic conclusion and remedy for you liking this trash.

    Get a fucking life you loser. Nobody loves you and your uncle is a convicted rapist. This boy is untalented, annoying whitetrash - he's the kind of guy I'd happily face a court for beating several multicoloured kinds of shit out of and then forcing to eat it.

    I'll leave you, white stone, with some final thoughts for you to ponder over. Good luck in your recovery.

    You suck. You suck. You suck.

    General CommentWow. Really, what has the world come to? I can't believe they're advertising this shit on tv already. And this song in particular makes me angry. Angry at the people who work to allow crap like this to be produced over and over, polluting our society and swaying our attention away from good music.

    Our government sucks.

    General Commenti'm unashamed to say that really like Lil Chris.
    i can't work out if the advert for the CD is serious or just a piss take though...
    but apart from that I think he's great.
    nothing wrong with his music at all.
    You should just all stop being agesist.
    (shhh i used to think it was a woman aswell!!)

    General CommentFirstly lil chris has to be 1 of the m ost arrogant little pieces of shit in the industry. After his success in rock school he ditches the band he was in , in order to make a futile attempt to make a solo career. In a recent interview he came across as thoroughly cocky fo many reasons such as dismissing the help gene simmons gave him, saying how much he hated school and then dared to patronise those in education by claiming everyone would prefer to be a successful rock star than study. What a presumptious arsehole. seen as not one part of him is successful or indeed rock. what a cunt.

    Regarding the song, his voice is infuriating his image is unoriginal, and and his attitude stinks.
