"Wind it Up" as written by and Oscar Hammerstein Ii Richard Rodgers....
High on a hill was a lonely goatherd
Lay-ee-odl-lay-ee-odl-lay-hee-hoo
Loud was the voice of the lonely goatherd
Lay-ee-odl-lay-ee-odl-oo

Wind it up
Wind it up, uh, uh
Wind it up, uh, uh, uh, uh
Yodellay, yodellay, yodel-low

(Yeah)
This is the key that makes us wind up
When the beat comes on, the girls all line up
And the boys all look, but no, they can't touch
But the girls want to know why boys like us so much

They like the way we dance, they like the way we work
They like that way that L.A.M.B. is going 'cross my shirt
They like the way my pants - it compliments my shape (She's crazy, right?)
They like the way we react every time we dance

Every time the bass bangs, realize it calls your name
Let the beat wind you up, and don't stop till your time is up
Get in line now

Uh, uh, uh, wind it up, uh, uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, wind it up, uh, uh, uh, (Come on) uh
Uh, uh, wind it up, uh, uh, uh, uh
Yodellay, yodellay, yodel-low

You've got to let the beat get under your skin
You've got to open up, and let it all in
But see, once it gets in, the poppin' begins
And then you find out why all the boys stare

See, they're trying to bite our style
Trying to study our approach
They like the way we do it, so original
I guess that they are slow, so they should leave the room
This beat is for the clubs, and cars that go

Every time the bass bangs, realize it calls your name
Let the beat wind you up, and don't stop till your time is up
Get in line now

Uh, uh, uh, wind it up, uh, uh, uh, uh
(Y'all ready)
Uh, uh, wind it up, uh, uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, wind it up, uh, uh, uh, uh
Wind it up, yodellay, yodellay, yodel-low

Uh uh huh, it's your moment
Uh huh, come on, girl, you know you own it
Uh huh, you know your key is still tick-tockin'
Hell yeah, and you know they're watchin'

Get it, girl, get it, get it, girl
Get it, girl, get it, get it, girl
To the front, to the side
To the back, but don't let him ride

Keep goin', girl, it's your night
Don't let him steal your light
I know he thinks you're fine and stuff
But does he know how to wind you up?
(Come on)

Uh, uh, uh, wind it up, uh, uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, wind it up, uh, uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, wind it up, uh, uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, wind it up
Yodellay, yodellay, yodel-low, hey

    General CommentI've haven't heard this song very much so I can't really remember how it goes. But as far as I can tell I it's good.

    I like how she's mixed a classic, like a song from "The Sound of Music" with R&B/hip hop. Usually I'm not really for that kind of stuff.

    General CommentI can't decide whether this song is really catchy or just really annoying.

    General CommentThis is the wave of a new beat of music- songs you can't quite catch the first time you hear them. For example: Hollaback Girl, My Humps, When you were Young, The "bleep" song, Fegalicious (or something rather). When it comes to all these songs I know I had to listen to them at least two other times before I could understand the rythm. Its all freakin over the place nowadays.

    ANYWAYS, I hated this song at first. Now yes, I do find it catchy and It will soon be stuck in my head for even thinking about it again..

    MEANING? I don't know. It seems like there are subtle references to sex, but I mean, what song nowadays doesnt?

    General CommentIt takes a bit more than one listen through, but the song does become catchy. Honestly, though, I actually prefer the lyrical content and beat of Hollaback Girl compared to this. And that says a lot, considering everybody seems to hate that song.. Heh, I don't, I like to call it somewhat of a guilty pleasure.

    General CommentI think it's about sex, and nothing more.

    You've got to let the beat get under your skin
    You've got to open up, and let it all in
    But see, once it gets in, the poppin' begins
    And then you find out, why all the boys stare
