"Beware of the Dog" as written by Martin Gore, Stuart Crichton, Jamelia Davis, Tommy Lee James and Karen Poole....
Listen to me

Do you know how much you want it?
You're trying to be cool about it
You're trying to big about it
You're constantly just denying
You're like a moth to a flame
You hardly wane
But listen 'cause I know what I'm saying

He's trying to catch you in it
And then he'll back you in it
'Cause he's just another girl addict
And if you give it away
You've gotta be crazy...crazy

[Chorus:]
Stop!
You better shake him off
Before he gets ya
(He's coming to getcha, he's coming to getcha)
Stop!
He'll only build you up
And then he'll getcha
He's dirty to the bone - beware of the dog!

I was damn near addicted
I got into trouble with him, I got in the bubble with him
Everything was just how he wanted
Oh but then I got wise
I got out of sight
So take my advice

[Chorus: Repeat 2X]

I know you hear me
I know you hear me - I know you hear me!
Arr! Arr!

You better reach out and touch me!
(Reach out and touch me)

[Chorus: Repeat 4X]

Beware of the dog...
Beware of the dog...
Beware of the dog...

    General Commentit sounds like depeche mode's personal jesus.

    General CommentBy using that tune I'm guessing she's trying to get at the person who the song was originally by? Can't quite tell whether it's meant to be Depeche Mode or Marilyn Manson. Either way, she sucks.

    General CommentA complete rip off of depeche modes personal jesus. Apart from whereas that was a great song, this is garbage. One of these days she might actually release an original song instead of cover versions and rip offs.

    General Commenti agree with mark1975 and aliasneo. she's commercialised the song to such an extent it's awful.

    General CommentDoes no one here know what a sample is? WITH PERMISSION, she used the music to Depeche Mode's hit Personal Jesus (only "covered" by the epic Marilyn Manson). And Dave Gahan, lead singer of DP, co-wrote her hit
