"Smelyalata" as written by and Christofer Drew....
I know that I've been dancin'
Around the truth ooh whoa
But tell me what the hell I'm supposed to do
And I, I'm a little bit agitated
With a slight scent of denial

I'm callin' all the time I know I interrupt
But it hurts when all I hear is you hangin' up
And (la da da da da-da-da) I won't try that again
I'm callin' all the time I know I interrupt
But it hurts when all I hear is you hangin' up
And (la da da da da-da-da), I won't try that again

(Ooh) La la la la
La la la la
La la la la, la
Shalom?

La la la la
La la la la
La la la la, la

Everybody's going to the party and we're having a good time
And I'm feeling alright tonight
With a better judgment
Everybody's going to the party and we're having a good time
And I'm feeling alright tonight
With a better judgment
Everybody's going to the party and we're having a good time
And I'm feeling alright tonight
With a better judgment
A better judgment

I'm callin' all the time I know I interrupt
But it hurts when all I hear is you hangin' up
And (la da da da da da da), I won't try that again

    General Commentwell since it's christofer drew singing this...

    he's saying that he's trying to talk to this girl, but for some reason she keeps basically brushing him off..
    but he's really into her. he tries to forget about her by numbing himself by drinking, but he just can't forget about her.

    General Commentbasically what i get out of this song its about a guy whos into a girl but he keeps trying to get in contact with her but she keeps avoiding him but he really wants to be with her but now hes sick of it and frustrated as we all feel at some point when we're romancing.

    General Commenti think this song is about a boy who cheated on his girlfriend, but he still has feelings for her and is trying to call her to explain what happened.

    "Everybody's going to the party
    and were having a good time
    And I'm feeling alright tonight
    With a better judgement"

    General CommentI remember when no one knew about him and all of a sudden he just blows up. Pretty powerful tool the internet. His voice is rather addicting, but totally agreed
    ^^^^^

    General Commenti like he first meaning, but BlackandWhiteDreams's meaning could be right too.

    look at the first verse.

    I know that I've been dancing around the truth
    Whoa, tell me what the hell
    I'm supposed to do
    And I, I'm a little bit agitated
    With a slight scent of denial

    he might regret cheating on his girlfriend.

    General CommentOn the contrary I think that in the first few lines he is talking about being convinced that this girl was his and she wants to move on but he asks "what the hell am I supposed to do" because he can only think about being with her and he is somewhat in "denial" about the fact that he can't have her.

    in this he says that he is going out with everyone to just have a "good time" because he is trying to just not think about her

    and in the end he ends up calling her again and realizes that he shouldn't "try that again" in order to get to her

    its sweet because its out of a somewhat desperate lovesick kind of mood.


    haha Chris Drew is a champ.

    General CommentThe sound of this song is really upbeat, and it seems like a feel-good song if you don't listen to the words. But yeah I pretty much agree with both of you guys on the meaning.

    General CommentYep, I agree with you all about the meaning too.

    General Commentin the first verse there's no "you", it's just "whoa, tell me what the hell i'm supposed to do"

    also, i think in the background instead of "please, don't call" that it's "please, don't go"
