"Wrap It Up" as written by Nathan Wonnacott, William Blanchard, Scott Fairbrother and Julian Shah Taylor....
Don't get upset
Don't make a fool of yourself
Don't lose your head
Please get a grip on yourself

There's nothing else you can do
There's nothing else you can do
There's nothing else you can do
There's nothing else you can do

You may well say
How could this happen to you
You may well ask
And you may not like the truth

Why is it always to you?
Why is it always to you?
Why is it always to you?
Why does this happen to you?

So cut it up
wrap it up
out of it
out of luck

cut it up
wrap it up
out of it
out of luck

cut it up
wrap it up
out of it
out of luck

cut it up
wrap it up
out of it
out of luck

You may well say
How could this happen to you
You may well ask
But you may not like the truth

Why is it always to you?
Why is it always to you?
Why is it always to you?
Why does this happen to you?

So don't get upset
Don't make a fool of yourself
Don't lose your head
Please get a grip on yourself

There's nothing worse you can do
There's nothing worse they can do
There's nothing worse they can do
There's only one thing to do

Get even
Get even
Get even
Get even
Get even

So cut it up
wrap it up
out of it
out of luck

So cut it up
wrap it up
out of it
out of luck

So cut it up
wrap it up
out of it
out of luck

Cut it up
wrap it up
out of it
out of luck

out of luck

    General CommentObviously this song is about getting even with someone. A wrong was done, most likely a humiliation, and the person needs to stay zen and get a grip. Since "there's nothing worse they can do," the only thing to do is get even with them.

    It's interesting the way this is put. I mean, revenge is so much sweeter when the exacter is keeping his cool, am I right?

    General CommentI agree that the song is about revenge, but I think more specifically it's about getting revenge on the man, or those who try to keep you down; however, he's not advocating violent revenge, but rather to channel your anger into a positive energy that you can use to get even with those that have been taking advantage of you.

    General Commentthis song is quite catchy if you have heard it before, and i saw a gig with whitey playing with rooney in sydney in australia, and he actually said the song is about aa mate of his who got cheated on and basically he is telling her not to overreact and be the more mature person in the situation and "wrap it up" coz she is "out of luck" as it happened to her before, not to mention there is a subliminal message of him say "hey, i want you and wont cheat on you"
